Huge News: I Am Producing My First Sports Documentary on Tik Tok

ESPN’s Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, aired its final episode on Sunday. Thank God. So glad those Lebron/MJ GOAT debates that dominated my Twitter feed for the past few weeks can finally die (RIP).

Look, I know Michael Jordan was a great basketball player, but i’m not a boomer and i’m not from Chicago so watching a Jordan documentary wasn’t something I was all that thrilled about. It was a decent documentary, but i’d much rather just re-watch Space Jam if i’m being honest.

Regardless, there is now a gaping, Lizzo sized hole to fill now that the documentary is over with and no new main stream sports content on the calendar (other than my beloved Bundesliga).

The sports world needs something new, fresh, and exciting to keep us busy during this sports lull.

And I am happy to announce that I am here to deliver just that.

As a semi-professional content creator, I am always looking for ways to expand my portfolio and share stories that deserve to be shared. And I can’t think of a more entertaining one than the life story of one of my all time favorite athletes: J.R. Smith.

The first episode of what I am calling ‘The Last Lap Dance’ dropped this past week on Binge Weekly’s Tik Tok. Click here to view it.

New episodes will be related every Wednesday until the documentary is complete. Excited to share J.R.’s story with you all. Some one has to do it and i’m glad that it can be me.

Aaron Rates Rom Coms: Love Wedding Repeat

I love rom coms. They are by far the best movie genre IMO. In fact, I love them so much I made it one of my New Year’s Resolutions to write one. And, unlike my resolution to stop ordering $200 worth of UberEats every weekend, I intend to complete this goal.

As a part of my process, i’ve decided to consume as many rom coms as possible for inspiration. Last night, I watched Netflix’s newest rom com release, Love Wedding Repeat.

Love Wedding Repeat Is the Perfect Netflix Rom-com

Here is my review (I will try to keep these reviews as spoiler free as possible):

Before I start, I want to go over how I intend to assign grades for each rom com. 50% of the grade will be a rating of the movie’s romantic aspects and the other 50% of the grade will be derived from how funny I think the movie is. Both will receive a score (between 0-5) and I add both numbers to get the final, proprietary metric: THE ROM COM POWER RATING.

Romance Rating: 2.4/5

Honestly, for a movie that takes place at a wedding, the romance is kind of lacking. Wedding days are supposed to be a literal celebration of love, and there are a few things that go down during the course of this wedding that make you question why anyone is even getting married in the first place.

Olivia Munn being in this movie probably inflates the romance score a bit higher than it should be because I had all sorts of romantic butterflies whenever she appeared on screen. Such a smoke.

Comedy Rating: 3.7/5

I found myself LOLing quite a bit during this movie, mostly because of Joel Fry:

Love Wedding Repeat Cast Guide: Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn and More

Who absolutely crushes his role as the maid of honor (yes, you read that correctly). Definitely my fave character in the movie. Think we’ll be seeing more from this dude in future flicks.

Final Rom Com Power Rating (RCPR): 6.1/10.

At the end of the day the plot of this movie wasn’t anything special, but the characters made it decent and I am a sucker for British accents and Olivia Munn. Probably not something i’ll be rushing to rewatch, but overall not too shabby.

A Review of my First #BundesligaSaturday

I’ve done some weird shit since quarantine has started. Gone on walks for fun. Dabbled in some of the low key dating apps like Farmer’s Only and JDate. Even got addicted to watching teenagers in Korea play League of Legends for a bit.

Worlds 2018: Meet the Teams

And today, I woke up at 6:30 AM Cali time to watch MY Schalke Miners play Dortmund in the first Bundesliga game since quarantine started.

And it felt fucking AMAZING.

Aside from the fact that Schalke got absolutely throttled and almost mercy ruled, I was on cloud 69. I pictured myself in the empty stands (no one was allowed to attend the game), taking pulls from the handle of vodka that I snuck in to the stadium, and talking shit to Dortmund supporters for being total pussys. I was googling fight songs during half time. I almost shotgunned my BANG energy drink.

I was back in on being a sports fan.

I was back in my happy place.

If there is one thing this quarantine has taught me its that life kinda blows without sports. If you would have told me ten years ago that i’d be waking up at 6:30AM to watch a German league soccer match, I would have probably poured the orginal four loko I was drinking over your head and kicked you in the dick.

Truth be told, i’m not much of a soccer guy. But I am a sports guy. And at this point I will take what I can get. Can’t wait for next #BundesligaSaturday.

GO SCHALKE*.

*Only reason i’m still supporting them is because I already purchased a fake Chinese Schalke jersey. Otherwise i’d probably be out. They kind of suck.

I Created a Quarantine Themed UFC Drinking Game

Ever wanted to know what it’d feel like to get knocked out by Francis Ngannou without actually having to fight him? Well play my UFC drinking game and you’ll probably wake up feeling like you did.

The game is expertly crafted so that each participant is sufficiently lit after the first few fights. Only the most experienced booze hounds will survive til the end. Think you have what it takes?

Rules are simple. At the start of any UFC event, grab a group of bros, and follow the chart below:

Last man standing wins. Good luck to any and all brave enough to participate.

Is Nextdoor the Next Great Dating App?

Lets face it. Dating apps are broken. Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and Farmer’s Only are great if you’re a girl trying to collect Venmos from rando simps and score free dinners. But as a dude, you have a better chance of finding toilet paper at the grocery store right now than you do matching with a girl you actually find attractive/vibe with. 

And if i’m being totally honest, with a profile like this:

I figured i’d be booked with dates and sexual escapades until mid to late 2030. But unfortunately that hasn’t been the case. Things were looking bleak.

But then I discovered Nextdoor, what I believe to be America’s next great dating app.

Nextdoor is an app that connects you with people in your neighborhood. Primarily a place for Karens to congregate and gossip about which store manager they all think should get fired next, the app also lets you join groups and make posts that other people in your hood can see. It is not TECHNICALLY a dating app. But I think it has a lot of potential to be one.

Here is a great example of how the app can be used to score dates:

While what this dude might not be something Hitch or Ryan Gosling would recommend, i’m sure you can find your own, creative ways to impress your neighborhood crush with a post of your own. Here’s what I did:

Sure, I might not get a date out of this, but now the girls in my neighborhood know that 1) i’m a tequila guy 2) I like to party and 3) i’m in to organic shit and therefore care about the environment. So it’s really only a matter of time before someone comes up to me at the neighborhood grocery store and asks to make out with me right?

Shooting your shot has never been easier fellas. Download this app ASAP. Its a quarantine essential.
