Trevor Noah certainly is a human being...

This is gonna get weirder before it gets better, huh?
While he certainly wasn't my first choice to take over The Daily Show, I do think he's a canny one. Or he was, anyway. I mean... listen, we all say dumb and horrible sh*t at low points in our lives; but this instance of twitter biting a public figure right in the big break is becoming more tedious than tragic.

It just keeps happening! To the point where I think we shouldn't take most of them at face value. Though that one about the money man behind all successful rappers is pretty gross. I don't really know what to make of that. My point is, if you don't think getting an internationally recognized position like the Daily Show wouldn't make him straighten up and fly right... you're crazy. And instead of burning an alleged sexist in effigy; what if this time we tried to educate and reform some of his beliefs?

But on the other hand, he was 30 when he wrote those tweets, it's not like he's some young upstart playing with fire to get attention. So... hmmm.

Well now I'm cross-eyed.

As for his more anti-Semitic tweets I don't think they're an issue. Or rather, I'd think Stewart could smell one of those a mile off. And if he didn't get the last say on who replaces him I'd really be surprised.

Is he sexist? I dunno. I don't know South African culture very well. We'll just have to see how this shakes out.

The Claptastic Voyage has a fantastic original song!

I can't find a production credit for it anywhere, but know that I appreciate their hard work. It's a song about functionally impressive hardware that is probably not at all about sex and/or penises.

I've listened to it 8 times already.

Spectre Teaser: Family Bonds.

Yes. The score is just perfect. Structurally familiar but tonally revolutionary. Christoph Waltz is now absolutely Blofeld. And I'm absolutely stoked.


Mr. White! How the hell are you?

The Sony PS4: Fist bump friendly.

I did not think I'd be this pleased with the PS4. Mainly because I was so late to the ps3 party my PC had long left it in the dust. Plus mainlining Uncharted 2, Resistance 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Infamous left a sour taste in my mouth. They should have been savored, except for Resistance 2 that was... weak tea by the time I played it. Anticipation and a staggered release schedule is really important to appreciating the medium, I realized.

But what I've got right now is a free download code for The Last of Us (bout' time I played that again) and Bloodborne. Sweet. Jesus. Lord, do I have Bloodborne. A killer-er app there never was. Hunting werewolves in a Victorian dystopia with a chain-whip cane-sword has never been more maddeningly addicting.

Yes. This game is worth $460.

But about the system itself? It was plugged in, updated, and ready to go in less than 20 minutes. Kudos. It seamlessly allows for wiki-diving during Bloodborne's egregious loading screens, double kudos. And finally, I noticed there was a headphone jack on the controller. Could it be? Was there a simple preference setting that could let me jack in without cold calling best buy for random adapters to ultimately achieve maximum neighborliness? Kudos upon kudos upon kudos.

This is going to work out great. Also, I'm never going to not fist bump the console's motion sensor to turn it on.

Ps4? This is gonna happen.

I better have to wear shades, though. Promise me.

Barring disastrous Bloodborne reviews, which does not seem remotely likely, I will have a brand new console come Tuesday. This is going to be the Bloodborne machine... possibly the Persona 4 device as well. Maybe even The Order contraption once that series gets off the ground in 2-4 years. My point is, if Micrsoft has a game worth selling it's going to hit PC. And despite SONY's financial troubles they still seem dead set on making... well, games.

For every Fable there's a Bloodborne and an Infamous. For every Halo there's a Persona and an Uncharted. If I had to get a console, there really isn't any contest.

Did I do it? Did I selfie? I don't care. Thanks, Redbubble!

Nice shower curtain, dingus. Bet it's got stratum upon stratum of mildew.

This new "body covering" is indeed, most "splendid." Kinda smells like bubble gum, though. Not sure if that's a problem either.

Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 2 was worth it.

It's been twice the wait Tell Tale promised us, as I'm sure Troy Baker's dance card overfloweth, but Atlas Mugged is up and I finished it almost immediately. You should pick it up now while the price is down.What's here is easily worth $30 if you're a mild Borderlands fan.
