For A dVerse Buck You Get A Great Big Suck!

So the cat needs to give you humans some lip for this dVerse trip. You need to get your act together and stop changing your minds like the weather. Or maybe just stop lying but that might cause many a brain to end up frying.

The cat sees the news,
Stating it can't lose.
This will be the movie of the year.
Turns out it is something to fear.

Oh look it's Resident Evil 6.
That game will be in all top picks.
Turns out it's trash,
Leaving you with a bad rash.

Sure there is the odd nut,
That will like such things at their hut.
Opinions are assholes I suppose.
Wait! Is that how that goes?

But when the majority claim,
It will be something of fame,
Then the movie or game,
Turns out to be oh so lame,

To all who cried out for it,
Giving them a big fit.
Seems there is something to it.
Maybe they didn't add enough spit?

Or too much polish and shine,
Making it less than divine.
Goes for anything though,
That can curl your toes.

Next big thing just flopped,
That has to sting that it dropped.
Maybe the anticipation is to high?
But some things at least get a good cry.

Not totally sucky as hell,
And end up being swell.
Maybe they know it will suck,
And give off some "it will be grand" cluck.

That way they can sell it before all know,
And realize their lying flow.
Does this bring us back to greed?
Just them planting the seed,

When they know it is trash,
And will be over in a flash.
All kinds of questions arise,
But a word to the wise.

Tell the hype to pound sand,
For protesting too much and making such a stand,
Usually only means one thing,
In the trash you'll want to give it a fling.

There we go the cat has stirred up some strat at his show and now all can think. I hope I did not bring you to the brink. Actually that might be fun. So if it was done, don't blame the cat, we'll blame this one on Pat. Or maybe Cass because it certainly can't be blamed on my hyped up little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. Love this Pat, so many things do come in with a whole lot of hype and they end up sucking. I'm not a big fan of Resident Evil and definitely wouldn't be willing to spend a whole lot of bucks on number six! I've never seen the films before but your rhymes make them sound like a bore. I have to admit and will not lie, it doesn't surprise that their sales aren't high!

    Are you speaking from experience here Pat? Did you actually buy the game for it to turn out poor?

    2. Yeamie and Pat sirs,

      Hank is around
      He's having a frown
      On the road again
      It's some pain
      He has no leverage
      The broadband lacks coverage
      The nearest cyber-cafe he makes do
      Missed all of you too!

      Hank

    3. Sucks indeed
      With no coverage at your feed
      But as you go on the road
      Don't hit a poor toad

    4. So long as Hank's there, I won't stop and stare. Enjoy your time on the drive buddy, hopefully soon at home you'll arrive.

  2. ha they def hype things that flop, plop right down in attempts at the crown and there are series that should end, if for no other reason than mercy on the memory of what has been

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah really agree
      That many series should end already
      But sadly they just linger on
      Ruining all that came before at their lawn

    1. Pfft you are a disgrace
      With the reality tv race
      The zimbie shows though
      Are well worth a watch at my show
      You may need a life
      But at least there is no job to cause you strife

    1. Yep that is where most of it belongs

  7. The majority rules
    or so
    they say
    and mediocrity
    holds sway.

    The market
    will stand
    what the market
    will bear
    so trash
    aplenty you'd
    better be wary.

    People are like sheep Cat and sheep are dumb and easily led. Advertisers know how to appeal to the baser needs and so make money off people with too much money and time on their hands.

    Now I'm going to sleep.

    Replies
    1. haha yeah all of that is true
      They trick the sheep with a fancy image or two
      And they follow along
      Making sales strong
      Even when it is all crap
      Such crap should be wiped off the map

      Delete
    2. Heck sheep will stand out in a field when it's raining and drown to death. They really are dumb creatures, but they're tasty critters. Lamb stew is one of my favorite dishes and braised rack of lamb isn't too bad either. Damn I'm hungry!

      Delete
    3. Never tried lamb at my sea
      It might be tasty
      But I'll stick with chicken my way
      As always eat it three times a day

  29. yeah, you really touched upon a bunch of things here. The suck factor is much bigger than it should be, and God I could get into it about some of the stuff they spew at us, yet have the gall to charge a weeks pay for in some cases. Really sickening. You know, it got me thinking how much I still enjoy video games, yet I can't ever get myself to buy a game, I don't care how well I get financially, I just can't ever seeing myself saying, oh yeah, I can't think of any better way to spend that 60 bucks, it's ludicrous. If I do buy a game it's like an old one in the bargain bin for 10 or 15 bucks. Funny thing is I was at gamespot a couple weeks ago and they had a big used wall, which is right next to the new ones, and the used one's are only like 5 to 10 dollars cheaper in some cases-really a joke.

    And then you get the movie poke, it's getting took expensive to see so many movies anymore. 10 dollars after four or all day weekend, but oh, if you chose to go before 4 then you save 2, yet if you're thirsty they tell you pay us five or go drink your poo, and so we pay the five and pretend it tastes divine….Suck factor. Too many, and I didn't get into the lies…damn those liars and their lies…Fun piece, got me on a rant, in some third world place this alone might be worth a grant, well, it might be if some slick marketer were hyping me lol

    1. LMAO damn a big rant
      Today at my plant
      And yeah I agree
      Spending 60 bucks on a game is not done by me
      I go for the bargain bin too
      And it is stupid how used are not cheaper at their zoo
      Stupid is all I can say
      But if all stop buying maybe they'll be cheaper at such a bay
