You know, I had a little Batum surprise to show off today, but something changed my mind. Actually someone changed my mind.
On twitter today, I was browsing along looking at what Michelle Beadle had to say (because, really who doesn't).
watch this video. Trust me, you'll be better for it.
Well anyway, in the middle of searching for what Michelle had to say, I came across something Brent and Becca had posted on their timeline. And Brent was referencing something about some epic rant some dude made against Blowout and Topps.
Disclaimer: I like Blowout and Topps. I mean, aside from Topps sending me Saer Sene as a replacement card once upon a time, I have no real beef with them.
Anyway, this rant was supposed to be epic. So I watched it.
It. Was. EPIC.
I've never seen a meltdown quite like this. In fact, I'm surprised he didn't actually have a heart attack right there on screen. I watched all 22 minutes - and I really still don't have any idea what he's even ranting about. There was something about high numbering, but the rest was incoherent.
You don't have to watch the whole video. Skip to any section, and you're going to see the same thing.
I think the video is wonderfully timed for me. If I start to feel like I even get to 10% as angry as this dude gets about his cards, I'm out. Seriously.
The card industry - and what this man is trying to use it for - has probably made this man's life less enjoyable.
The key is that the man, Boomo I think, is trying to use the cards to make money. And I guess that didn't work out so well for him. Go ahead, give it a watch. Just a minute or two.
