Coach’s Swan Song


This is it people. The last you’ll hear from ol’ Coach. Sometimes something happens that is so preposterous and simple you have to come out of blog retirement just to vent about it. I work in an office (sick brag) and part of my daily duties is to answer the phone. There are 7 people in the office, and we all rotate who answers the phone. Some of us answer more than others (points finger at self.)  Continue reading “Coach’s Swan Song”

This List of 12 Things Men Do Differently Than Women Is The Worst Thing on the Internet

There’s no picture, no intro, and really, no commentary necessary. The people who read this list, found on tickld, are exactly why a man like Donald Trump can run for President. It’s just awful nonsense. It’s no secret Blog:30 is like, a day away from pulling the ol’ Irish Goodbye. Hell, it could have already happened. If so, this is my swan song. This is what I want to be remembered for. Not the Cavs posts, the GoTs posts, the wildly unpopular podcast…no. I want to be remembered as the guy who did his best to get shitty lists like this off the internet and out of human beings’s brain cells.

Also, typically when we here at blog:30 (RIP?) rip apart these lists, it’s written by a woman explaining trends among males. Not today folks, here we have what I have to assume is a caveman of a male who probably watched a few too many episodes of Seinfeld and thought observational humor was his true calling.  Continue reading “This List of 12 Things Men Do Differently Than Women Is The Worst Thing on the Internet”

Green Day Fan Comes Around

Not since the Dookie Days has being a Green Day fan looked so cool! Just absolutely legendary. As a guitarist myself, there have been many of jam sessions where I day dreamed about getting pulled on stage to play with some of my favorite. Even the thought of it has me roller skating in a buffalo heard. Then this guy comes up on stage, plays When I Come Around like he wrote the damn song, and stage dives into the crowd as Basket Case blares in the background. I’m pretty sure as a Green Day fan that’s about as good as it gets.

This brings up an always interesting debate. Continue reading “Green Day Fan Comes Around”

The Great Dragon Debate of 2016


Interesting. Very interesting indeed. Listen, I’m a dragon guy. Always have been, always will be. I’m not saying I own kimonos with dragons on them as I stare at my sword collection and throw ninja stars around my house, but I’m well versed in all media portrayal of dragons. I done seen Smaug get desolated. I was kicking it with Pete’s Dragon before DVDs were invented. Where were you when Liu Kang finished off Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation? I was watching with bated fire breath in my basement.

And yes, I obviously fucks with Game of Thrones. You don’t become the #1 blog of choice in Finland and not cover Game of Thrones.* Let’s just say if I had to grade myself on a dragon…scale…I would put myself at about 7/10, mostly because I’m my own biggest critic, but I do believe I can accurately tell you whether this dragon is real or not.

Start Your Week Off With the Lost Art of Music Videos


Not to sound like the old guy yelling out the clouds, but it’s a shame that music videos pretty much don’t exist anymore. Sure, youtube is always there full of all videos young and old, but it’s not the same. I was sick last Thursday, and as is tradition I watched Price is Right from 11-12, but I was robbed of one of the more magical stay home sick from school perks…no music videos on MTV from 12-5 until TRL or Room Raiders came on.

Which is a shame. Music videos are a rare, all encompassing art form. They can be crazy, magical, nonsensical, life changing…you name it, there’s a music video that describes that expresses that feeling. Here’s a rapidly thrown together Top 5 music videos that truly took the combination of music and video to heart.  Continue reading “Start Your Week Off With the Lost Art of Music Videos”
