No Longer Making Mistakes, Simply Bored

14 Mar

So I’ve decided to stop updating this thing. I still follow the Phillies, Sixers, entertainment and mindless crap, but I simply can’t update in a timely enough manner to make it interesting or worthwhile for others.  There are plenty of blogs where I will continue to get my info and laughs (read: click on the links on the right and on the links page).

However, I will be updating my other blog with another somewhat lame title, I’m So Bored This Actually Became Interesting.  It’s a good dumping ground for mindless entertainment, and I may post the occasional sports topic as well. So check it out in your spare time and thanks so much for reading this spot over the years.

And I still have my twitter feed at

Mayor Michael Nutter Is Twittering???

19 Jun

Seems everyone’s favorite Philadelphia mayor is sending tweets from all over Philadelphia. Mayor_Nutter on Twitter, he’s been writing 140 characters on a somewhat daily basis.  Let’s check out a couple choice tweets:

Jesus christ, he has the lingo down!  One assumes this is a young staffer, but could it be from the man himself?  Who knows?  America’s Mayor (screw you Guliani!) is reaching the people through social networking.  Enjoy it while it lasts!

Minnesota Wants To Stop Terrorism By Banning Online Poker

29 Apr

Via Always Bluff, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety wants to block access to online poker sites by spreading the falsehood that online gambling is illegal in the United States (it’s not).  They contacted the various internet services providers around the state to comply with their request or else their ‘cash flow’ will be negatively impacted.  One wonders whether this is an idle threat.

They’re the first state in the nation to full out request such a thing:

Believed the first attempt by a state to employ this federal statute to restrict access to online gambling sites, the letters cites U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 1084, (d); notices were delivered Mon., April 27. Congress enacted the statute in 1961 in recognition of the need for states to control illegal gambling activities and granted authority for use of the statue to state law enforcement agencies.

The juiciest, and scariest, bit of news out of a recent press release involves the explanation of their reasoning:

“In Minnesota, and for Minnesotans, the primary issues are legality, state self-governance and accountability,” says Willems. “In broader context, the long-running debate on online gambling continues to raise significant issues, including absence of policy and regulation, individual rights, societal impact, international fair-trade practices, and funding for criminal and terrorist organizations.”

So, yeah.   Pokerstars, Full Tilt Poker, and other ‘gambling sites’ are included on their list of sites they wish to be blocked.  Which urban warrior decided to get a bug up their butt about online gambling and what people do with THEIR money?

The Sports Guy Is Doing The #1 Podcast In The Nation

24 Mar

Why, he’s doing the Adam Carolla podcast of course.  You didn’t think I meant The B.S. Report, did you? Love the Duke Sucks T-shirt Bill, and love the made up movies.  Keep ’em coming. Pedoph-isle! Simmons and Carolla talk diddling of underage celebrities, Charles Manson’s mindset and story, the ability for widowers to bag some tail, old Negro Leaguers, and discusses the made up movie Head Games.  Somehow Carolla casts the same people over and over in his made up movies, almost like a real Hollywood studio! Pick up a stone – Summer 2010.
