Triumph the Insult Comic Dog goes to College

It's still weird to me that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog isn't 100% associated with Conan. Did NBC win him in the divorce? Anyway here he is skewering a bunch of college kids who are WAY too politically correct.

I'm not one of those people that decries political correctness as if it were an attack my very soul but I do think it can go overboard sometimes. For instance, over the last few years I've tried to break the habit of calling things I don't like gay or retarded. I totally get how language like that is hurtful and what's the point really? I can use plenty of other words. Where I draw the line is when you're asked to refrain from language that accurately describes someone or something.

Does that make any sense? It feels like some of these language crusaders have become so afraid of possible conflict that they're almost making the situation worse. Conflict can be a good thing, often times conflict is the only way a solid resolution can be found. Don't ban the word poor, ban the people that think someone isn't worth their time because they're poor.

Whatever, I'm just hear for the poop jokes.

Can't Stop Won't Stop: Fire & Rain

Enough with all the sappy talk about wrestling, here's a new video by Can't Stop Won't Stop. I absolutely LOVE these guys. We need more rappers repping Reno. I don't know why, I just think we do. I don't know if it will really help anything but it certainly can't hurt, right?

Daniel Bryan Says Goodbye

Here's Daniel Bryan's retirement speech from RAW last night, kind of. His speech was something like 20 minutes long and the WWE in their infinite wisdom has edited it down to 6 minutes. I'm sure some dutiful wrestling fan will upload the whole thing somewhere but I don't really feel like searching for it.

I'll freely admit I cried. I know it's a silly thing to cry about, a man who pretends to fight in his underwear for a living retiring. Daniel Bryan isn't dead or anything. He's living the dream, retiring early to raise a family with his hot wife, piles of cash and composting toilet. We should all be so lucky.

It's blog posts like this where I wish I was better with words.

Daniel Bryan wasn't anyone I knew personally but it felt like I did. I guess that's the beauty of entertainment, on occasion you're presented with something unreal that you connect to in a very real manner. There's a cognitive dissonance at work. It's the crux behind the meme "It's still real to me dammit". Ok, I think I'm starting to lose my point. I guess the point is that I don't think we should be ashamed to admit we've been emotionally touched by art and entertainment. I mean, that's sort of the point of it all, isn't it?

Daniel Bryan was a fantastic wrestler, he was one of the best in the world and by all accounts was a pretty good dude. Every time he wrestled it brought a smile to my face. Everyone in the DevilDinosaur household wishes him the best in his future endeavors.

re: Daniel Bryan

It doesn't matter if you knew him as The American Dragon or Daniel Bryan, Bryan Danielson was one of the best professional wrestlers of all time. He's retiring tonight on RAW. If you even have just a passing interest in pro-graps I'd suggest you check out the show. If nothing else it should be worth it for the spectacle. I'll definitely be watching with a giant box of Kleenex.

X-Men: Apocalypse up in your Superb Owl

Fox had a commercial for X-Men: Apocalypse during the big game yesterday. I missed it because for most of the Super Bowl my kids were being terrors. Luckily it was on twitter like 5 seconds after it aired. It looks cool enough, plenty of action and cool looking characters (by the way, "cool looking characters" is my nickname for Olivia Munn's cleavage).

Next time a Super Bowl involves teams I couldn't care less about maybe I'll take the kids to the park. All the commercials are on the internet immediately after they air, in some cases DAYS before they air. Watching the game and hanging out on line reading everyone's hot takes on Cam Newton can't be good for you. I probably knocked like 2 years off my life when Cam didn't go for that fumble and a bunch of people I went to high school with started calling him a pussy on Facebook.

Anyway, how about those cool looking characters?

Run, don't walk to Frinkiac

Frinkiac.com is a meme and image generator that takes any quote you can think of and matches an image to it. It's one of the most incredible things I've ever seen on the interweb and I was pretty much on the ground floor of Tom Selleck Waterfall Sandwich.

You don't even have to get the quote right, I typed in "internet computers" and I got just what I wanted. This is a complete game changer.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The brilliant people at TT games decided the best way to tease the new Lego: The Force Awakens game was to recreate the epic first trailer for The Force Awakens trailer, with a lego twist of course. I know that I have a big soft spot for the Lego games but I can't think of a better video game trailer since that one for Dead Island. This looks hella dope. Also my son said I could get it for my birthday so yay?
