Why We Now Hate Best Buy & Nintendo

Monday morning, I woke up and watched the news, as I do most mornings. While watching the local newscast, I was excited to hear their announcement that Best Buy would have Nintendo's NES Classic in stock. This was exciting because, when I first heard about this Nintendo product several months ago, I really wanted one. … Continue reading Why We Now Hate Best Buy & Nintendo

Game

I don't got game. It's not something that I've ever had. And when I say game, I'm talking about the don't-hate-the-player-hate-the-game kind of game.Back in college, I would watch as roommates would flirt with girls almost effortlessly. They would use tactics that blew my mind. Tactics that, following logical conclusions, should have never worked, yet … Continue reading Game
