  1. YeOldeJacob and the 2011 Cincinnati Reds, Part 1; 4/3 vs. Brewers

    With the Reds finally competitive again, and being a team with the distinct potential of blossoming into a dynasty resembling the mid-70s Big Red Machine (call it a stretch, but this team has what it takes), I’m going to be at Great American Ballpark much more often than I ever have been (I’m shooting for 10 games, which is a decent number for someone well outside the Cincinnati area). As such, I have decided to make my trips to GABP (and maybe even a trip to see the Reds at Wrigley Field) a ...
  2. YeOldeJacob's Black and White Countdown, Part 2; The Ten Worst Designed Unova Pokemon

    by , 26th February 2011 at 02:19 PM (Pop-Pop in the Attic: in 3D)
    After my list of favorite new Pokemon, the natural progression is, obviously, a list of my least favorite Unova Pokemon.

    There are a few qualifications for a Pokemon to fall under "least-favorite" in my eyes, though they don't all have to be met to be a least-favorite. They are as follows:

    • A cool-as-fuck idea that resulted in a mediocre Pokemon.
    • It's just plain ugly.
    • It's a clusterfuck (see: Pokemon with 50 different moving parts and colors).
    • It's

  3. YeOldeJacob's Black and White Countdown, Part 1; Top Ten Best Designed Unova Pokemon

    by , 24th February 2011 at 05:15 PM (Pop-Pop in the Attic: in 3D)
    I've been looking for something to write about for a while now, and I figured a countdown to Black and White (culminating in a review on Black or White, probably on Bulbanews) will give me plenty of material for the next week or so.

    Originally, I had planned to revisit each game, but honestly, I never really came up with anything decent. It was all bland and uninspired. Shit, really. So I've decided to make this countdown all about Black and White in some way. This entry, as the ...
  4. YeOldeJacob's Favorite Hip-Hop/Rap Albums, Part Two ("Both Sides of the Brain")

    So. On to the second hip-hop album in this little series I'm putting together. I'd like to note that I'm not listing these albums in any particular order. Just based on which I feel like writing about the most on any given day.



    Both Sides of the Brain (2000) by Del The Funky Homosapien


    As a nerd, Del is my obligatory favorite ...
  5. YeOldeJacob's Favorite Hip-Hop/Rap Albums, Part One ("Behind the Front")

    You know, when it comes to films and music it irks me when people slam an entire genre. Considering music, hip-hop/rap takes a lot of shit. No matter how bad a genre is on the surface, at its most popular level, there is always a constantly beating indie level under that that is full of fantastic artists. At the same time not all of the music on the top, popular surface is trash, even if a good album is a rare find within the Billboard's top records of any given recent year. Particularly hip-hop/rap. ...
