So if you’ve been paying attention to the general going-ons of the site (listening to the podcasts that for the first time ever don’t include me on them would be a start) then you may have noticed that I have been gone for pretty much the last 3 weeks. I was on the actual other side of the world you guys. Well, provided that you consider being 12,000 km away from home as the other side of the world. Anyways, I had very limited internet access and other than what I gleaned from the occasional glimpse of Facebook I really didn’t have that much access to what was going on in the very important world of pop-culture. The more pressing issue was actually Typhoon Soudelor that was about to hit Taiwan as we were planning on flying out.

I mean, the really important stuff filtered through. Like, I became aware of the fact that Ian McShane will be joining the cast of Game of Thrones in some mystery role (although, I’m like 99% sure he will be a Greyjoy). I also heard that Meek Mill and Drake got into a fight over who wrote raps better and maybe something about one of them being the baby-daddy to Nicki Minaj’s unborn child. The fact that I have never heard of Meek Mill up until last week sort of speaks volumes about the fact that he will be remembered as the rapper who got into a fight with Drake and nothing more. I also saw Ronda Rousey KO a Brazilian UFC fighter in her usual amount of time (fights so short they fit into gifs!). In more upsetting news I heard about a little Canadian
robot that got smashed up in Philly, found out that Hulk Hogan was a racist and Rowdy Roddy Piper and lion named Cecil died.

I somehow also became aware that they are making Space Jam 2.

But what about the pop-culture that I didn’t get to hear about? Join me now on a journey of discovery into things that are barely newsworthy but possibly mildly interesting.


Really looks like they're enjoying that meal.

Michelle Rodriguez Drinks Piss with Bear Grylls

Ah, I’m so glad that Bear Grylls somehow popped back onto my radar. I watched a bunch of his show back when I had whatever channel his show was on. No matter how tired and worn the meme got, the “Drink Piss” meme almost always got a smile from me. When I was skimming through headlines and trending searches Michelle Rodriguez caught my eye based almost entirely on the fact that I had watched Furious 7 on the plane. If you haven’t seen Furious 7 you should probably get on that, it’s amazing. I guess he has a new show where he takes celebrities into the wild with him and Michelle Rodriguez was one of the lucky ones. Bear had a special treat in store for Michelle (and the real winners, us) when he caught a rodent and then informed her that to make a little soup-stock out of the mouse she would have to pee into a cup to provide the stock. Ha ha! Now you’re eating a mouse stewed in urine! That’s entertainment kids. The fact that Grylls and Rodriguez are both millionaires eating mousepiss soup brings a smile to me. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
