T-Mobile aired their Super Bowl ad with John Travolta singing a “Grease” homage. If you’re like me, you didn’t recognize John Travolta with a shaved head and a bearded face. A popular style for older men these days. T-Mobile has an extended version of this video on YouTube. If you’re a big fan of “Grease” and the song, “Summer Nights,” you have to watch the extended video.
Jack In The Box came out with the Mint Mobile milkshake in a new limited time promotion. A mint milkshake with Oreo cookie crumbs, whip cream, and a cherry on top. Unlike $15 per month plan, the milkshakes are five bucks each. If the Jack In The Box in your area haven’t already sold out. The last time I visited a Jack In The Box was when they gave out antenna balls in the 1970s.
T-Mobile is buying the parent company of Mint Mobile and two other cellphone brands, Ultra Mobile and Plum, for $1.35 billion. Since Ryan Reynolds has a 25% stake, his cut from the deal is a cool $337.5 million. Not a bad return on a four-year-old investment.
What does this mean for current Mint Mobile customers? Only two things are set in stone: the $15 per month pricing and Ryan Reynolds being the face of Mint Mobile.
Pricing for the $15 per month plan will stay the same. What features you might get for $15 per month may change. As for the $30 per month unlimited plan, pricing and features may very well change.
As for Ryan Reynolds, can he still rant about the big carriers after selling out to a big carrier?
Ryan Reynolds is a sellout. The man who ranted against the big cellphone carriers sold out Mint Mobile to T-Mobile for $1.53 billion. On the bright side, you can buy the Mint Mobile milkshake at Jack In The Box. And watch the extended version of the T-Mobile Super Bowl ad with John Travolta.
The newest area in FortNite Chapter 4 Season 2 is Mega City ( an “Attack on Titan” anime tie-in). A Japanese-inspired city and country side with bamboo, cherry blossoms, and hot springs. Enough to turn anyone Japanese. Skin is Chun-Li from Street Fighter. Song is “Turning Japanese” by The Vapors.
If you’re not familiar with “fridging,” it’s a comic book trope. The death of a female character motivates the male character to do something heroic. Green Lantern being the first example when he finds his murdered girlfriend in the fridge.
A recent example would be the 90th anniversary of Nancy Drew in March 2020. A new comic book series begins with Nancy Drew being dead on page one. The Hardy Boys take it upon themselves to solve her murder. Only to discover that she was alive and well, and pissed off that they were stepping in on her investigation.
Anthony Del Col, the writer, thought it would be a neat idea to have the Hardy Boys investigate Nancy Drew’s death. He was unaware of fridging as a trope and wasn’t prepared for the backlash.
That’s not how you celebrate a 90-year-old character.
This week’s episode of “Star Trek: Picard” re-introduces a character we haven’t see in 30 years. Ro Laren played by Michelle Forbes.
The last time we saw Ro was in season seven of “Star Trek: The Next Generations.” Captain Picard sent her to infiltrate the Marquis for rebelling against the Federation. She defected from Starfleet to join the Marquis—and betrayed Picard’s trust in her.
The recriminations between her and Picard flies fast and furious. Their mutual pain from the last 30 years proved to each other that they weren’t Changelings.
Ro reveals to Picard that Changelings have compromised the highest levels of Starfleet. She hands him her Bajoran earring that is a data chip with all her investigation files. And then she gets killed in a shuttle explosion.
If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of “Star Trek: Picard,” “Imposters,” stop watching and watch that episode. After that check out Sean Ferrick’s reaction to that episode. And then come back here to talk about the “fridging” of a female character to motivate a male character.
Have you heard about the “Cocaine Cat” in Cincinnati?
During a routine traffic stop, a large cat jumped out of the car and climbed a tree. Animal control captured the cat, took a DNA test, and tested for narcotics.
The DNA test confirmed the cat was an African serval. An “exotic” animal that is illegal to own in Ohio. The narcotics test confirmed that cat had exposure to cocaine. The owner surrendered the cat and is cooperating with authorities.
The cat is now recovering in its new home at the Cincinnati Zoo.
YouTube released a new video on March 7, 2023, about their updated profanity policy. Unfortunately, the video was quite explicit and wasn’t censored. For content creators who don’t use profanity, here’s the clean version of the profanity policy in a nutshell.
