A Little Friday Fun
Had to share the latest video from the ever hilarious people at Bad Lip Reading on YouTube. Seriously, if you aren’t already subscribed take two seconds and click that button TODAY! You could save a Russian Unicorn if you do, and who doesn’t love unicorns regardless of their geography?

Hearthstone BETA Key!
I may have gotten a bit overly excited Monday evening when I saw it and squealed like a little girl. Not ashamed to admit that. I had been steadily watching my inbox for that beta key from Blizzard for weeks when it finally arrived. I have seen so many posts and videos about the game that it was all I could do to keep myself distracted while I waited. But patience (and really having no choice in the matter) paid off and for the past few days I have been playing the game and trying to unlock all the champion decks.
Because it’s not the weekend and I have life, work, family, etc – I haven’t been playing in a dedicated manner like I would want too, but the weekend is half way here and I’m hoping to have enough playing time to be able to write a decent post about it. Even now I’m writing as quickly as I can to get back to work unlocking all the Champion decks! Just playing AI matches for now and will start playing other players soon.
What Sorcery Is This! You’ve Changed The Site AGAIN?!
Ummm – yeah. And since I’m changing the format of NerdCRIT.com up a bit I thought I’d take a minute (just sit right there . . . . ) to lay it all out for you.
(and now you have The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme playing in your mind . . . you’re welcome!)
The Home page now has what I’m calling a Featured Story section (see below) that I will use for my favorite posts or for some quick updates that may not make it into the actual News feed. I’m desperately searching for some cool dividers for this section, but for now the “==” will have to do.
Obviously the News page is where you will find all the posts I have and will make on the site moving forward, so be sure to check the feed there. Don’t just assume that since this page doesn’t show any recent updates that there isn’t new content there. Some posts I will be scheduling to coincide with certain dates/times and may not be able to update the Featured Story section – or I may just flat out decide NOT to update it. If that makes you nervous thinking you will miss something brilliant that I have written – then fear not! Just be sure to follow me on Twitter and you’ll be notified anytime a story hits the News page.
I’m shooting from the hip here and the format will probably be tweaked a bazillion times before I’m happy with it (or I just give up), but that always seems to be the best way for me. Plus – I used to rock Duck Hunt by hip-shots so why not do the same here!

It seems these days everyone has a story they want to tell. Just hop on YouTube, Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook and you will instantly find hours upon hours of material people are just dying to shove in your eyeballs. In an age where technology allows anyone with an Internet connection, a computer, a webcam and some editing software to become a “celebrity” (and yes, I’m using that term lightly) it doesn’t look like the flow of meaningless banter will ebb anytime soon. Subject matter be damned, whomever gets the most ReTweets (RT’s), Likes or Subscribers wins the battle. It’s just that simple.
But what about the stuff we should be listening and paying too?
