Why Jaden Smith is ruining our Society
McFly

By Benji BillmanLet's be honest. We can all agree that we have no feelings either way toward Jaden Smith (at least I didn't until he fucked up). I know what some of you are thinking: "Benji, back off. He is only a kid". As someone who works with kids, let me begin with saying: being a kid is not an excuse. Nor is being a celebrity's child. He has done very little to contribute to our society, and now he is attending his prom in an all white Batman costume. This is a cry for HELP, people. After all of the shitty work he has done for us, he is practically throwing himself to the public. Waiting for a super hero to rescue him. All symbolism aside (as I couldn't find the

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well.

Whatever Happened to Predictability?
McFly

Newsman, the paper, or evening TV?! Speaking of how predictable things are, I was out to brunch a few weeks ago, and I was caught up singing the Full House theme song. Immediately after, my friend started singing the Family Matters theme. Almost like clockwork, I stared up the Step by Step theme song (DAY BY DAY!!!). This ended us with the Perfect Strangers theme song. We all had a good laugh and settled down at brunch. Then one of us spoke up. They said "I wonder who wrote all of those songs". Luckily, we live in a generation where we are literally a second away from those answers. It came to our attention that IT WAS THE EXACT SAME GUY WHO WROTE ALL FOUR OF THOSE THEME SONGS! What are the

Accordions are for winners!
McFly

Maybe it's whiners. I have trouble remembering how that goes. Either way, the ones who finish on top always just barely edge out those without the accordion ears. Or some shit like that. I get it. It wasn't an easy round, but as I mentioned after the first play through: these are the rounds that really separate the top from the bottom of the pile. I enjoy the challenge, but understand the frustration. We are all just trying to keep our head above water. At the same time, you just need to put your thinking caps on and do your best for the round. Sometimes, you'll surprise yourselves. I had teams put

Let's just go ahead and put it out there…
McFly

Girls who wear glasses are sexy. THERE. I said it. Now that you know, go out and buy yo-selves some sexy frames that make you all nerdy hot. That is completely opinion, but then again, I feel as though most would agree with the fact. I was so glad that Geeks who Drink finally had the audacity to include a round on women who wear glasses. I know, I know… there are some nay-sayers out there. Sure. You may think that women in glasses are "not-hot". Well, that's cute and all, but you're wrong. Mostly, because my nerdy fantasies include a Liz Lemon type of character. And when I say fantasy, I mean mostly board game playing, following some Back to the Future references with a little

McDuck… more like McScrooge!
McFly

Whenever I hear about a McDuck, I only choose to understand and be a part of Scrooge McDuck. Because, he is the best spin-off of any Disney Duck character. Let's be honest: DuckTales was one of the best cartoons of the 80s/90s generation. The re-wrote history. In many different ways, including video games, movies and TV shows. Scrooge McDuck was the wealthiest animated characters ever. How many different characters do you know that can dive into a pile of coins and come up on the other end smiling? None. No one else. Just remember that in Duckberg, life isn't the easiest. Just play some NES DuckTales and find that shit out on your own. Speaking of NES DuckTales, I am very jealous of

Why do people hate Tom Cruise?
McFly

Call me the devil's advocate, if you'd like. I want to figure out why there is such a bad stigma with Tom Cruise. He had made so many amazing movies, yet, when he has one box office "eh" or his Scientology (I cannot defend this), you all flip your shit. Rightfully so, in certain respects. At the same time, you cannot deny his amazing performances. Top Gun. Jerry Maguire. Magnolia. All of those cover different ranges of his work. And many people LOVE it. I watched Cocktail for the first time EVER this year. I should have hated it. I should have thought "This movie is below shallowness". But I enjoyed it. His character had so much charisma and attitude that it took over

150 years of Southern Bitterness
McFly

You don't really realize how bitter some people are about the Civil War when one is liberal and lives among liberals. I could never have thought it to be a real thing. For one to be envious that the South did not win the Civil War, halting our country from becoming two. For those out there that have experience the Southeast of our country or any real deep rural areas of the country, these people are adamant. I used to teach at a farm high school in Ohio. Now, I lived in Columbus, a nice mix of conservatives and liberals. Everyone seemed to agree that the Civil War ended pretty well for the country. But my students and their families begged to differ. Why? I don't know. They live in Ohio, which

Much Haikus. Good Games. Such Wow.
McFly

Doge most definitely approved of round 1 tonight, eight haikus on classic and modern video games. Hearing and reading about these games makes me want to fire up my old systems. I remember when Mortal Kombat (MK) first came out (and also our first answer of the quiz), and my neighbors invited us over to play. It was the Sega Genesis version of the game, which had one huge difference from its counterpart on the Super Nintendo. Blood. Lots of blood. It was the first I had ever seen digital blood being inflicted on characters I was playing as in a fighting game. Fighting games up to MK were mostly karate or wrestling based. No one had really thought of people beating up each other just to beat
