We have a new holder of the World Cup. Some country called Spain? I dunno, I wanted Ireland to win it. Do I live in Ireland? No. Why do I want them to win? Because they’re not in it. Soccer, football, kicky the ball; tis all over now. No more small talk before the big play off.

With the rise of the first-person shooter, ever damn game being either a shooter or beat-em-up, it’s pretty hard to say what is original in this day and age. I’m currently working on a few essays, which is why I won’t even try and bother with an opinion. But I certainly think we’re headed down a route that is devoid of new material.
