My New Xbox S Arrived

almost forgot that i pre-ordered the new Xbox One S, but was happily surprised when i got home last night after stopping at Legal Seafood in Tysons for some awesome oysters & beer.

i was on the fence about it at first, but after looking around at some 4K bluray players and seeing that the cheapest one on amazon was just as expensive as this new xbox — seemed like a no-brainer really… so i’ll give my “old” xbox to jayden, and keep this new sexy white one so i can keep playing the occiasional video game, or hop into a Halo big team battle after work just for the fun of it…. and now be able to throw in a 4K UHD movie and enjoy the extra resolution goodness up on my 70″ in the livingroom.

The Xbox Onesie

Microsoft’s Xbox Onesie is Ridiculously Awesome

Today, Xbox Australia unveiled the Xbox Onesie. These loose fitting onesie’s aren’t “your standard onesie” either. It is made in a black or white colour scheme, has enlarged pockets, and has your Gamertag is embroidered on them. It is just about the most bizarre thing we have seen emerge out of Xbox in some time.

oh man, the “geek” in me totally wants one of these! especailly if you can get your gamertag embroided on it — oh hell yeah.

p.s. adds to personal xmas wishlist.

Germany Prepares For The Coming Zombiepocalypse

Report: Germany to require citizens to stockpile supplies in case of catastrophe

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to encourage its citizens to prepare for a catastrophe or armed attack by stockpiling food, water and other supplies, the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung” reported on Sunday.

Citing the government’s “Concept for Civil Defense” paper to be discussed by the cabinet on Wednesday, the government will require people to stock 10 days worth of food and five days of worth of drinking water.

does germany know something the rest of us don’t?

North Korea’s Netflix?

The Netflix of North Korea features propaganda films and Russian lessons

Streaming video has reached one of the least connected countries on earth.

North Korea now has its own Netflix-style service called “Manbang” — meaning “everywhere” — according to a report on NK News, which specializes in news related to the country.

But just as North Korea offers most citizens only a highly censored, limited version of the internet, the new service is also limited.

According to NK News, citing state television, the service offers on-demand Russian and English language lessons and “documentary films about the leadership,” as well as articles from the state news agency and one of the country’s newspapers. The content is delivered via a specialized set-top box that also offers access to five television stations.

As Variety’s Janko Roettgers notes, there appears to be one global constant, no matter what streaming content is available: Kids want to watch the same thing over and over. Now, with the right access, they can.

ahhhh, isn’t that cute?!

but seriously, i’m just kind of shocked that anybody — aside from government sponsored hackers — has internet access, knows what the hell a “netflix” even is, much less the computer/hdtv to make use of any video streaming service over there… shit, most of the country doesn’t have electricity at night, right?

Leaked PS4 Slim?

Leaked PlayStation 4 slim images emerge online

Not long after Microsoft’s Xbox One S hit stores, Sony will be releasing its own slimmed-down version of its gaming console. Pictures of the updated PlayStation 4 console have appeared in an online auction, showing off some changes to the device, including what appears to be a matte finish.

The seller provided The Verge with some images of the console, which show off a slimmer version of the PS4, with rounded corners. Pictures of the packaging show that this particular model has a 500 GB hard drive, and it appears to be a European model. Posters at the gaming forum NeoGAF have also provided photos comparing this “slim” model with the original PS4.

i have to say, i’m not nearly as excited about a “PS4 Slim” as i am about the new xbox slim… but that’s just me… now if this was this new PS4 “Neo” we’ve been hearing about for months now, then that’d be something different since i am curious about that one.

either way, still cool.

Japan Steals The Show

Japan Steals The Show At The Olympic Closing Ceremony With The Help Of Super Mario

The Rio Olympics are done. The closing ceremony has seen the Olympic flame doused, and the flag handed to Japan, who will host the Summer Games in Tokyo in 2020.

As a taste of what’s to come, Japan took the metaphorical baton and closed the ceremony with a Tokyo 2020 logo reveal that absolutely stole the show. Rio’s ceremonies were educational and well-done, but never awe-inspiring like Beijing. Japan brought the awe, and they did it with the help of Super Mario. After a very “Japan” opening number showing off some impressive technology, we went to a video package that featured animé superstars, Hello Kitty and a plethora of amazing Japanese structures.

i missed the closing ceremonies last night, but looks like Abe really did take the show!

actually looking forward to seeing the olympics go to Tokyo/Japan… much better than Russia, or having the world cup going to Qatar.

Team USA takes Rio Olympics medal race with ease

BBC Accidentally Screens Live Sex on Beach in Rio

The BBC’s Dan Walker, presenting the channel’s coverage of the games from the beach in Brazil, fought back the laughter as he tried to ignore what was going on behind him.

But Walker was forced to address the awkward situation after viewers began tweeting in.

i’m a little surprised more of this hasn’t happened this past week or two… this is Rio, after all.

Obama Plays Golf During Lousiana Crisis

Obama has no plans to end vacation to visit Louisiana flood wreckage

EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama is unlikely to break from a New England vacation to survey flood damage in Louisiana, despite calls for him to visit and meet with responders and victims.

The White House insists Obama is not indifferent to the suffering of thousands who were washed out of their homes in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas of the state. At least 13 people have died as a result of the flooding, and at one point 11,000 were in shelters. That number has dropped as water levels have receded.

In an editorial published Wednesday, The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge called on Obama to visit “the most anguished state in the union.” The newspaper noted that Obama interrupted his two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard earlier this week to attend a fundraiser for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the Massachusetts island.

so basically he dropped everything to go to a fundraiser for Hillary on monday, then decided to go back on vacation and play some more golf while the people of louisiana are dealing with a bigass flood once again?

ummm, yeah… i’m certainly not surprised.

Op/Ed

To Each His Own Olympics

The World Chess Championship comes to NYC.

You may be thrilled by the feats of Katie Ledecky, mesmerized by the grace of the women gymnasts, or startled by Rio spectators mocking U.S. soccer star Hope Solo with chants of “Zika! Zika!” (the first recorded instance, noted one wit, of a stadium rocking to the invocation of a virus). Allow me, however, to interrupt the prepackaged, heart-tugging, tape-delayed Olympic coverage to bring you the real sporting news of the year.

It has just been announced that on November 11 in New York City the World Chess Championship will begin.

You scoff, of course. For years, I’ve had to put up with amused puzzlement at my taste in entertainment. (Old joke: How do you do the wave at a chess match? With your eyebrows.) But I remain undaunted.

True, chess is not an Olympic sport. But it should be. In 1984, when challenger Garry Kasparov forced that championship match into 17 draws in a row — each about five hours of unbearable, unrelenting concentration — world champion Anatoly Karpov was so physically and mentally drained (he lost 22 pounds) that the Kremlin pressured the World Chess Federation to stop the match, thereby saving Soviet-favorite Karpov from forfeiting the title to the brash, free-thinking, half-Jewish Kasparov.

My first tournament — the 2002 Atlantic Open, a weekend of all-day pressure so intense that I left in a near-catatonic Karpovian state — was also my last. I have stuck to casual five-minute “blitz” chess ever since. My winnings — a $150 check that remains framed and forever uncashed — hang as a reminder never to do that again.

And while chess’s governing body cannot match the International Olympic Committee for corruption, the World Chess Federation more than makes up for that in weirdness. Its president, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, former president of Russia’s republic of Kalmykia, is not only a reliable Moscow toady (sanctioned by the Treasury Department in November 2015), but a nutcase who insists he’s been abducted by aliens. They wore yellow suits.

So why am I so excited about the upcoming match in New York? Who goes to a chess game anyway? Continue…

i usually go and see what the latest from victor hanson is, but didn’t see a new post from him… guess he’s on vacation or something this week, but that’s okay… figured this was a nice change of pace from the usual op/ed posting on friday mornings around here.

chess huh? well to be honest, it’s not as lame as some of these olympic sports… thankfully there’s no requirement to watch them, and most of us only hear about it once every 4 years…

p.s. i actually like chess, and used to play it alot when i was younger… played it with my dad, who usually won, but i enjoyed the challenge anyways… and even got some friends to play it on occasion back in high school.

Arrival’s Hong Kong Poster

Arrival’s Hong Kong Poster Has a Mistake That’s Causing Political Unrest

Here’s a case where film marketers being incurably Western causes a big problem: Arrival released 12 posters depicting alien monoliths appearing across the world. One of them photoshopped a building from Shanghai into a Hong Kong skyline. Oops.

kinda crazy how much press and people talking about this one… i mean, at first i was like “what’s all the hubbub about, it’s just a movie poster!”

…then i read a comment about how we’d might react if we saw a chinese movie poster with the Sears Tower photoshopped into the NYC skyline… and yeah, we’d most definitely ridicule the living shit outta that one.

p.s. still looking forward to this movie, though.

US Women Sweep 100-Meter

US women sweep 100-meter hurdles in historic first

oh man, that’s awesome! i’ve kinda faded on the olympics after watching to see if Phelps could pull out another gold or two… then there was that shocker when the US women’s soccer team lost that match… and after that, my interest level severely fizzled to be honest.

still cool to see some of our boys and girls down there in Rio kicking some ass, though :)

Clintons Amazing Speakers

The Clintons are some fucking public speakers. Their haul puts Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber to shame on ticket take.

Hillary Clinton released her tax returns to try and show how big a chunk of her income she pays in taxes because she’s a decent American. More shocking than her lack of rich person tax shelters was the revelation that in the past three years she’s taken in $22 million in private speaking fees, while Bill’s pulled in another $16 million. It’s hard to put that in context, but for the sake of analogy, assume you just found out the barista with the nose ring at your local Starbuck’s is taking home $500,000 a year. She must be really fucking good at making coffee.

Ex-Presidents and famous people often sign up for the speaking tour at some sweet fee per speech. Sometimes the cash is donated to a personal charity or undertaken pro bono to raise money for a social cause. Sometimes it’s kept for personal gain. And sometimes it’s ten times what anybody else in the business makes in a stellar year. You can’t even audit that shit. They’re paying the full boat in simple income taxes. After Capone, the mob learned to make sure their 1040’s were all super kosher. Don’t give Johnny Law an easy way to hang you.

Hillary Clinton is a shrill picayune who occasionally collapses in mind if not body. Bill Clinton looks ninety and has long ago stopped remembering his favorite Presidential moments. Does he come out and take a seat on a stool with a cigar in his mouth and tell funny anecdotes like Cosby?

There’s nothing wrong with turning a buck in capitalism. It’s encouraged. You are supposed to do it without promising to give away shit other people not yourself paid for with their work. You can look at the Clintons two ways. One, shady schemers who will figuratively or literally put two in the back of the head of whatever gets in their way, and two, maybe you do want mobsters running shit. They take their cut, but they make the trash trucks come on time. All the good heroes are dead. We never really had great Presidents and your prom date wasn’t nearly as good looking as you’d like to remember.

yup, this guy pretty much nailed how i feel about the Clintons… then again, i’ve made no secret how i feel about Hillary, and still think she should be in jail right now — or at the very least, going through an indictment from one of the several federal investigations she’s currently under… hell, still boggles my fucking mind that she’s even allowed to run for President, to be perfectly honest.
