I posted some ridiculousness at Mockable today, so please check it out if you’re so inclined. And Metten has several good pieces there about his recent driving trip to Florida, including this one and this one.
We (Metten) are making an effort to get the site back on track. We’ve both been, as they say, overscheduled, and things were starting to slide a bit. But we’re doing better, and I hope you’ll give it another look.
Also, if you’d like to contribute a guest mock, please send it to us. We’d love to read it, and will probably publish it. You know, unless it’s just one long racial slur or something… The address: mockable [at] gmail.com.
We’d also like to know what you like and don’t like about Mockable. If you have any suggestions on how we can make it better, please tell us. Via email, or in the comments here, whatever.
On Christmas day we hooked-up the new PS3 to the B.A.T. (big ass television) in the family room, and the boys did their best to fully burn-out the unit over the next week and a half. One of them was playing it sixteen hours per day, I’d guess.
And they never opened the blinds down here, which was the part that drove me the craziest. You’d think it would be the constant sound of gunfire, and the eleven year old boys in Oregon and Liverpool repeatedly screaming “FUCK!” through our TV speakers.
But no, it was the gloomy, cave-like feeling outside the bunker that caused me to grind my teeth. Man, I hate a house with all the blinds shut during the daytime… But the Secrets wanted it dark, for a better Russian-killing experience.
I also hate an unmade bed, in case you’re keeping score. I make ours seven days per week, and do a damn good job of it, too. I mean, I’ve got the hospital corners going on the sheets, and everything.
An unmade bed makes me sad, for some reason. Even when I lived in semi-squalor in Greensboro, I made my bed every day. Sure, I sometimes had to kick week-old pizza boxes out of the way to do it. But dammit, it was done.
Do you have anything like that? Something around the house — something that doesn’t seem to bother a lot of people — that you simply cannot tolerate? Tell us about it, won’t you?
The mailman (Mehlman, I call him) just brought me a red Netflix envelope, with a copy of Public Enemies inside. I finished with Life on Mars 2nd season (HIGHLY recommended), and just realized there are a lot of interesting new movies to watch.
Near the top of my queue: In the Loop, The Hangover, Inglorious Basterds, District 9, Star Trek, The Taking of Pelham 123, Drag Me to Hell, and Up. I want to see them all.
Will any be a waste of time? Which ones should I move to the top spots? Also, what new releases am I missing? I try to keep my fingers on the pulse of popular culture, but sometimes I get distracted by a tendency to not give a shit.
Help me out, won’t you?
And I cranked this one out in about ten minutes. Sorry it’s so lame, but I think it’s slightly better than nothing. Possibly. I’m off tomorrow, and will do better.
See ya then.
