Lost Boy – Found Man

2 years.  I haven’t written a single blog post in 2 years.  I’ve let down all people who read my blog; which I believe is 2 if you’re willing to count my other personality.  What?  If it works for Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost in CW’s The Flash, then why not me?

At any rate, time changes a guy.  The things I loved remain mostly the same but my social and political conscience, have most definitely evolved.  I barely recognize myself anymore.  Once I figure out who that is, I should probably start wttiting again.  If for no other reason than to justify my paying to have Xanderated as a domain name.

Time will tell.


The Dress

I have not seen the internet so infatuated with a dress since Jennifer Lopez wore that Green Versace outfit at the grammy awards.  Need a reminder?  You’re welcome.  Hell, I think it broke the internet a great deal more than Kim Kardashian’s unnecessarily photographer naked butt.  I’d include a link to that image but I can only stomach so much in one day and I haven’t even had breakfast yet.

Fast forward to today and all my social media feeds are vomiting images of that dress along with the question of what color it is.  Personally, I agree with Grumpy Cat.  It’s ugly.  Can we just leave it at that?

That being said, I couldn’t help but post geeky memes about it.  I’ll let the color wars rage on elsewhere.

SIDEBAR: Apparently the true color of the dress has something to do with the type of light you shine on it. If you look below, the original dress is in the middle. At left, white-balanced as if the dress is white-gold. At right, white-balanced to blue-black. F*ck Yeah, Science!

Sorted Milkshake

I literally cannot even deal with the sheer awesomeness of this video.  You gotta give it up to the boys from Sorted Food to take such an undeniable gay classic like Kelis’s Milkshake, re-hash it and use it for their foodie channel.

Due to the sheer coolness of the video, I’ll give them a pass for not actually making a milkshake after their little tune was done.  Mad props to the guys for also incorporating a little bit of choreography to the mix.  Extra kudos goes to Jamie for the bootie wiggle at the 50 sec mark followed by Barry’s confused look at his aforementioned tooshie.  I rewound it a few times to watch the double-take, again and again.

In the interest of a providing a reference for those of you that are 12 years old or younger, here’s the original:


Warlords of Draenope

So much pain.  So much misery.  So much hurt.  SO much anger!

I feel like I lead a very simple life these days.  I work a white-collar, corporate, 8-5’ish type job.  I come home every night to my loving husband, cook dinner and we squat in front of the TV watching Netflix episodes of whatever our latest obsession is.  For the record, right now it’s “Cousins on Call” on HGTV which features impossibly hot men who remodel people’s homes with skill, speed and form-fitting shirts that hug their magnificently beefy physiques.  Seriously, it’s criminal just how attractive these guys are.  As impressive as their renovations are, I’m equally captivated by the sheer gorgeousness of these guys.  The fact that I have a bounty of episodes and spin-offs of these two guys just waiting for my lecherous viewing pleasures makes my underwear tight. But I digress.

All I want to do when I have free time is to game and in this case, that means playing through the brand spank-me new expansion of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.  Alas, that is just not in the cards for me along with what seems to be thousands upon thousands of gamers across the world.  It seems Azeroth has succumbed to the evil of a raid boss unlike any other: DDOS (a.k.a Distributed Denial of Service).  Their official statement on this whole shebang was as follows:

“We’re continuing to work toward greater realm stability and address the service issues impacting latency,” the post reads. “Our current biggest hurdle is the concentration of players in specific areas and zones, and an unexpected effect of that concentration on the realm stability. We’re continuing to maintain a lowered realm population cap to help with the stability, which is resulting in increased queue times.

“We’re seeing some increase in individual zones drop which are causing localized player disconnections as we get into primetime in the Americas, and if someone is disconnected they will quite likely run into a queue to log back in. Work is progressing on improving realm stability through fixes targeting individual in-game issues, as well as on the backend game and network services.”

Some of these words were too big and they hurt my brain, but what this boils down to (from my limited understanding) means someone on the other of the Atlantic (or Pacific depending on which way you’re traveling, I guess) is attacking World of Warcraft and creating a bottleneck that forces Blizzard to cap the amount of players that can log-in.  Everywhere you turn on the net, you find people in queues of 2K – 5K and average wait times of nearly half a day.  I myself came out of a NyQuil coma cuz I haz teh cold, and logged in to basically find that rather than play the expansion tonight, I would instead need to go back to Hearthstone and pour over the ins and outs of the “Miracle Rogue” deck.

Sidebar: I have NO idea what I’m doing there.

Miracle Rogue

So rather than enjoy the expansion tonight, I will be overdosing on NyQuil yet again, pass out in my desk chair with my hands placed firmly on the keyboard, to hopefully wake up to a wonderful new world in which Blizzard will have removed the cap on players entering the realm and see my Death Knight, Xerberus, once again.  The poor guy is still level 90 because he’s not really stepped foot past the Ragey Dark Portal.

Good luck you lads and lassies of Blizzard.  Whatever it is you’re doing to bring the happy back in our lives, more power to you.  I imagine the coffee makers are in overdrive somewhere in Irvine so the Blizz programmers, developers, etc can work night and day to fix this.  Please note however, that if my weekend is not spent in Draenor, I will boil your collective bunnies.


Avengers: Age of Ultron – Official Teaser

I’ll just leave this here:


Xander Harris Incarcerated!

Oh how the mighty have fallen!… ok, maybe not mighty; at least certainly not these days, but DAYUM!  Nicholas Brenden, one of the original “scoobies” on that well loved, cult phenomenom, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, was arrested!  At a Comicon of all places!

I swear, I don’t blog for a while and the moment I decide to find to do so, my namesake lands behind bars.  How upsetting.  Good thing the show isn’t around anymore cuz this would be such bad press for the Gang from Sunnydale.  I wonder what Anya would have to say about this?… you know… if she wasn’t cleaved in half by some random demon from a hell dimension.

Blogging is Hard

OK so it’s not actually hard.  The difficult part is just finding the time while trying to hold down a standard job.  In my case, it’s the business of corporate sales, which is taxing, exhausting and time-consuming beyond belief.  Regardless, I really need to force myself to update this , but in the meantime: OMG look it’s Bea Arthur as Sailor Dorothy!

I DIED!!

Sexy Superheroes

variantbatman

Am I entirely wrong for finding some of these comic book variants a little hot?  I’ve been living and breathing some of these “Supermen” since I was a kid so it stands to reason that I would develop a not-altogether-healthy fascination with them, right?  Especially Colossus of the X-Men.  I know I spoke about him ever so briefly but I really need to get on a post of why he is literally the hottest superhero “alive”…. ok, I got distracted again.

At any rate, these variant covers are insane levels of awesome.  I am especially fond of the Batnipples Cover simply because it pays tribute to one of Janet Jackson’s best albums: “Janet”.  There’s more than a few more if you follow the link below, but I think they would definitely exceed the PG-13 rating I’m trying to hold on to for dear life with my posts, so I’m just gonna stop with this Wolverine one for now.  RAWR!
