Kenny Omega – The Greatest Pro Wrestler of All-Time?

By RiggzWednesday - August 8th, 2012Categories: Awesome, Rant

 

Growing up, I loved Pro Wrestling. And by “growing up” I mean it was considered a serious career option for me until… well… a couple months ago, I asked Kiddo if I could enroll in a wrestling training camp, not too far from where we live. So yeah, it’s still one of my great passions, but I don’t take the time to watch it any more, probably because as ridiculous as it remains, it isn’t nearly the spectacle it used to be. I still long for an unruly affair where evil clowns had identical half-pint sidekicks, and a tax audit could mean a steel briefcase to the skull. Even though, things might’ve gotten a little more serious in the U.S. (thanks for nothing Randy Orton) there are still those that want Pro Wrestling to be fun.

Leading the charge is Kenny Omega, my new favorite wrestler. Let me count the ways…

The Mystery of the [Amaaaazing] Cosplay Ranger

See that guy above? He’s my hero and it isn’t because we both share a history. We do. He’s my hero because he’s amazing in the strangest way possible.

Your 30-Minute Pachinko “Gameplay” Clip of the Day

By RiggzWednesday - July 11th, 2012Categories: Awesome, Rant, Video Games

People that know me, know that I love slot-machines, not because there’s potential, albeit small potential, to win a ton of money, but because they’ve practically evolved into full-fledged video games, featuring touch-screen action phases and even chairs with embedded Bose speakers. This same evolution has apparently happened in Japan, with Pachinko standing in for America’s dirty slots.

The video above is amazing. I have no idea what’s going on… but a little research reveals that the theme of the game is an anime series from the 70s called Combattler VThe game is so chaotic that I think I died  six times within the first ten minutes of the video.

Some of my favorite moments below…

The Greät IKEÄ Ëxpërïmënt – Däy Foür

By RiggzTuesday - July 10th, 2012Categories: Awesome, In The Field, Originals

Boy, that chicken dinner sure looks delicious, doesn’t it? Yeah… too bad it wasn’t mine. Spoiler alert, Jinius joined us for Day Four and made out like a bandit. He got the special (available only on Thursdays) for $1.99 and it tasted better than anything Kiddo or I had. Wanna know how much better? Read on.

CatRoommate Presents: The Annual Cop of the Year Award

By RiggzFriday - July 6th, 2012Categories: Awesome, Originals

I’m sure many of our more regular readers are already familiar with this prestigious honor, given to only police officer every year, out of a possible 1000 nominees. We started it back in 1993 as a way to show our appreciation for the men, women and dinosaurs that protect our streets on a daily basis. They are generally unsung heroes of our age, but today we honor one hero that stands above the rest.

Without further ado…

The Greät IKEÄ Ëxpërïmënt – Däy Thrëë

By RiggzFriday - June 29th, 2012Categories: Awesome, In The Field, Originals

In the beginning, I had no doubts that we could easily accomplish this culinary undertaking, and expected it to be an enjoyable experience the whole way through. Well, my perspective is slowly shifting and I feel I should let our dear readers know: we nearly didn’t make it to the coveted city of cupboards last night. One of us, I shan’t say who, suggested abandoning the project and getting sushi instead (!!!). Whichever one of us it was, we rallied together and forged on. The only raw fish I’ll be having this week is Swedish Fish.

The Greät IKEÄ Ëxpërïmënt – Däy Önë

By RiggzWednesday - June 27th, 2012Categories: Awesome, In The Field, Originals

Well, it’s actually happening. The Greät IKEÄ Ëxpërïmënt is underway and to kick off Day 1 of our six day journey, to see if this mom & pop shop called IKEA is the most “livable” furniture store in the world, we’ve invited along a special guest judge: CatRoommate’s resident “Jinius”. So, without further ado, let’s see how Day 1 went down… both figuratively and digestively.

The Greät IKEÄ Ëxpërïmënt

By RiggzTuesday - June 26th, 2012Categories: Awesome, In The Field, Originals

IKEA, as I’m sure you all know, is a Swedish word meaning, ‘ready-to-assemble’. But the world’s third-largest consumer of wood doesn’t just make minimalist bed frames. Oh no. They also make food (füd?). And so, in a collective effort from the entire CatRoommate field team, we’ve decided to make it our mission to have five dinners and one breakfast at IKEA in one week. We’ll be included pictures of our meals, as well as a short assessment of the quality of said meal. Our ultimate goal? To determine whether or not IKEA is the one-stop zombie survival headquarters it claims to be!

Also… to find an excuse to post more regularly to CatRoommate (it was Kiddo’s idea!!)
