Here we are again, in the middle of a Tuesday and I’m to figure out exactly what to write.

It’s not even a question of not having a subject to write about, it’s really about not having enough to properly devote to said subjects. You may have noticed over on the Fringe page that I’m a little busy with podcasts and the like over there, so not a lot of blogging time left over in my day.

So, to prove to you that I am not just suffering blogger’s block, here are the ideas for articles that I have kicking around. This will serve as a preview for things to come in the next few months.

hqdefaultTop 5 Fake Songs from Fake Bands in TV Shows

I don’t even know if I’ll be able to get to 5, but I guess I should try.

The idea here is that a lot of times in a movie or a tv show, there will be a character who is a musician. Every now and then (though not as often as you might expect), the producers of the show actually see fit to have this fake musician actually play a song in the show.

It’s almost always terrible. Factor in the fact that most actors are not in fact, musicians and it can get even more comical as they pretend to play instruments and lip-sync to someone else singing.

In order to qualify for this list, the guideline that I set for myself was that the movie or tv show cannot expressly be about the band. So for instance, Josie and the Pussycats or that terrible Jem movie would not be applicable.

What would be applicable, and may or may not be on the last would be the song that Charlie’s band got famous for in LOST. “You All, Everybody”. By Drive Shaft.

Board Game Review of Jaipur

Have you played Jaipur? It’s one of my favorite two player games. You would think that since it’s only a two player game I would have had the time to play it with Sarah and take some photos and write out a full article by now.

You would be wrong.

“Game Review Jaipur” has been sitting at the top of my little list of article ideas for a while, it seems like it will be such an easy one to phone in.

Basically, you play to rival merchants in the city of Jaipur trying to make lucrative trades and manipulate the local market to become the Royal Merchant for the Maharajah. It’s cool. One day I will tell you about in earnest. Not today.

Anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of having a text message conversation with my lovely wife knows that she texts incomprehensible gibberish pretty often to hilarious effect.

I have not deleted any texts from her in like two years, just piling up the nonsense.

Seriously, I could probably share about 4-5 of them a week and have like 10 blogs right there.

I can’t even do them justice without just sharing one, here’s a delightful exchange between the two of us that literally just happened. Notice that my pocket sent a gibberish text that is totally not even responded to.

I like to think that she needs a son for some sort of sacrifice.

The Lost Comix Zone Blog

Comix Zone was a Sega Genesis exclusive from my youth that I was super into. I tried to ape the art style in my free time, it came with a soundtrack and was extremely hard. In fact, I only ever finished it when I went back and played it on the PS3 when they launched the Sega Classics collection a few years back about it.

I swear I have written this article and it’s somewhere. I just don’t know where it is. Apparently, I started writing it almost 5 years ago I promise that one day I will find it and share it with you.

Corporate Buzzwords

Not sure exactly where I’m going with this one, my notes just say “Corporate Buzzwords”. If I were to try and put myself back into my shoes when I took this note I’m guessing the goal would be try to fill 1000 word blog with corporate buzzword nonsense without actually saying anything, but who can tell?

I feel like an entire article full of circling back, taking offline and aligning synergies would be a little tired but holy cow do I use this lingo on the regular at my day job.

This one might be doomed for the scrap heap.

What’s the Point of Tabloids?

This is also towards the bottom of the list in terms of what might actually become a blog. Basically, every time I’m in line I read the headlines off the tabloids. Depending on the caliber of the publication, the fabrications on the cover range from complete speculative insanity (Jonbenet Ramsey is still alive and looking for revenge on her killer) to the vaguely possible (Kim and Kanye are on the rocks!). But the point is, if any one of these headlines were actually true, it would be in every single actual news source immediately.

If Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were getting a divorce, we would literally be unable to stop hearing about it.

It wouldn’t be in the form of some exclusive scoop in Us magazine.

I think if I’m going to make this article work I would need to like sit down with someone’s Nana who buys and reads the tabloids to really get my head around it.

Anyhow, some of these will become articles, and some of them will just sit around in a little notepad app that I keep on my phone when inspiration hits me regarding an article.

See you next week when one of these might see the light of day!
