I’ve been playing Destiny basically nonstop since its release last month, and if you follow video games at all or have the misfortune of dating/best-friending a gamer, you’ve probably heard mixed things about it.
Quick rundown for noobs: Destiny is a space-themed shooter made by Bungie, the creators of Halo and Marathon and narrated by Tyrion Lannister.As you can imagine, with the notoriety of Bungie combined with Activision (the publisher of Call of Duty) and the unheard of $500 million budget, the expectations were higher than high.
Some really sweet, really progressive guy (Reddit user name: SirTechnocracy) asked his live-in girlfriend to marry him using an album of handmade memes on Imgur, plus 18 drawings of proposals he commissioned from DeviantART, one for each month they’ve been together.
LadyTechnocracy responded to raised eyebrows over the unconventional (*creative*) method by saying “This is honestly the most romantic thing someone has ever done for me. The advice animals crack me up.”
Awww. The internet used properly, without fetish porn or hateful trolls? You crazy kids give me hope.
Mary-Louise Parker says she’s “not really that into” acting anymore because of self-loathing gossip enthusiasts.
Hmmm. I wouldn’t know anything about that. I do know that I wouldn’t have much of anything that could be classified as “mean” to say about MLP. I mean, what? She’s a good actress, she seems intelligent, she’s pretty? OH NO.
I’m sure other people can find mean things to say like about her maybe not being a super young embryo anymore and that her character on Weeds was slightly slutty (so they probably make the massively stupid mistake of thinking she is in real life), and she sort of has crazy eyes.
The internet company Terra, which operates out of the U.S. and 16 Spanish-speaking countries, has come up with an eco-friendly if not eccentric idea – a receptacle that distributes Wi-Fi minutes in exchange for dog waste.
Ten parks in Mexico City already have special garbage cans that encourage people to clean up after their pets by calculating the weight of the items disposed thus providing everyone in range with free internet.
The more crap you collect, the more minutes you and your fellow dog walkers get. Of course, there’s nothing stopping people from just putting trash in the can. According to Creativity Online, they’ve already anticipated this.
Famously eccentric, newly-appointed Patriots wide receiver has made a new and semi-hilarious statement. After being asked about his new-found Boston surroundings he replied casually,
“I’m going to do something different, I’m actually going to stay with a fan for the first two, three weeks of the season,” Chad said after today’s practice. “That should be fun, until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around.”
The lady reporter proceeded to ask him if he was being serious and he responded by saying, “Have I ever lied to you before?”
Then went on to add,
“I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but they have to have Internet and have to have Xbox…That’s about it.”
I think he’s serious and I think he’ll do it, he’s been known to pull crazy stunts for media attention, to expanding the visibility of his brand. This trade to The Patriots obviously isn’t going to make him any tamer, same old Chad Johnson I remember, Twitter-joking, reality-show-having, bull-riding comedian that we all know and love. Or hate? Either way.
