048: Randy’s Monday Morning Obsession #6 – Doodle Deities

This is one of a series of regular posts from my dear friend Randy. Check back every Monday for a fresh look at what has taken over Randy’s litter box of a brain that week. For more timely ramblings from him head straight to the source, @RMChase3.

What’s up Beetles fans Elvis Fans and non-whites! Randy here with a multi-tiered obsession for you but this time with a few added bonuses! This one comes to you in the form of Doodle God and its many sequels like Doodle Devil.  The concept is a simple one you are a God or Devil and you have elements that you combine with other elements to make new elements.  Not following? Did I use the word elements too many times? Here then are some example coming right atcha. In Doodle God you take Fire and Earth combine them and you get lava, in Doodle Devil you give Humans the Apple and it creates Sin and Knowledge. Please note don’t try this at home now matter how much you set earth ablaze it’s not gonna make lava. Each game has about 170 different elements you can make and it saves your progress for when you can’t think anymore.  Downside to the game is that you have to follow some demented game makers cracked out logic. (Apparently fire and water makes alcohol.) Also pending which version you play you can earn coins to pay for hints or if you just wait five minutes then you can trade hints for precious time. Another great reason to go pick up the game is because you can play it now. Right now. What are you reading this on your android device your iPhone or a computer? Doesn’t matter you can still play it Doodle games are available on all platforms! So unlike all of those other obsessions I’ve brought you no waiting or signing up or trials. None of that you can be on the couch, car, or toilet and play Doodle games today. I know this post is a bit short but that’s because I’m typing with one hand and playing doodle devil with the other. I don’t know why you’re still reading this go play!

And when you’re done go find something to obsess over.

042: Randy’s Monday Morning Obsession #5 – Cinemode App

This is one of a series of regular posts from my dear friend Randy. Check back every Monday for a fresh look at what has taken over Randy’s litter box of a brain that week. For more timely ramblings from him head straight to the source, @RMChase3.

Yo yo yo Randy here, taking a brief rest from whacking rats with a nail spiked bat to bring you today’s obsession.  Have you heard about this texting thing? Of course you have quit being a jerk.   All of the kids are doing it, so are my parents, old people have somehow figured out how to do it, and every once in a while I’ve been known to do it.  It would seem however, as much as we first world people love our txt msgs businesses do not. One such business is the movie business.  For what feels like decades they have been telling us not to interrupt their movies with our phone calls.  So we all collectively followed their advice and took up to text messaging to never interrupt movies. So then the theaters were all “hey quit talking AND texting during our major motion pictures.” And I was all “ Dammit movies why do you keep taking away from me!? First talking, now you take my texts messages what’s next? You gonna take my phones? I THOUGHT I LIVED IN AMERICA NOT COMMUNIST RUSSIA!!”

I get it. Using the phone backlights the screen piercing the artificial night made by the theater  Also some fools don’t turn off the ringer and hearing the first 14 seconds of “All the things she said” by TATU while I’m watching the Bratz movie is a mood killer. Unfortunately not everyone has the balls to kick obnoxious cellphone users out of their building like The Alamo Drafthouse.  The good folks over at Cinemark realized this and came up with a great solution: The Cinemode App. Unlike most no text apps like the Drive Safely App that entirely prohibits you Cinemark still allows you the option. You download the app and when you go to a movie during the preshow entertainment the screen will tell you to activate “movie mode” (my term not theirs.) Once activated it dims your phones screen.   It also rewards you for not texting or using your phone for the duration of the movie with reduced ticket and concession prices. Now for sad news it’s only for Cinemark theatres which means not everyone can be part of this revolution of not being an inconsiderate jerk. Which currently means even I dear reader have to take a trip to get in on this. So download this, then download moviepass, and then you’re going to have like, the best movie experience ever.  But I’ve got to go smash me some more rats. I hope you enjoyed or if not GFY. Until next time

Go out. Go obsess

Randy.

Hey there ladies and gentlemen! (But mostly ladies *wink*) Randy here with his new obsession in the form of a service called MoviePass. MoviePass is a service that when I first heard about I just about flipped a pool over. You pay a monthly fee and watch one movie a day. Now dear reader I’m sorry that I just made you knock over your computer in a fit of awesome.  For those of you that didn’t,  let me say that again YOU PAY A FLAT FEE TO WATCH UP TO 31 MOVIES A MONTH.  Haters attempting to hate might tell you so what I can do that with Netflix, slap them in their cocksure face.  When I talk about MoviePass I’m talking about in-the-theater-right-damn-now movies.

030: Randy’s Monday Morning Obsession #2 – Sorcerers of the Magic Kindom

Hey friends Randy here coming at you hard and fast with the new obsession. I was going to present you
with a obsession that is close to my heart. But then something happened this weekend I went to the
happiest goddamn place on earth. (For those of you that don’t know that’d be Disney world.) Now you
may be saying “Hey that’s not something worth obsessing over!” You would be right I’m mostly just
bragging. It’s what I did at the park that is worthy of obsession. Last year Disney launched a interactive
collectible card game in the park called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. When I heard about it I was all
“What!? I love cards! And games! And collectibles! And interactivity!”

Hey what’s up for those of you that don’t know my name is Randy. (Although I should say that’s not
conditional if you do know me it’s still Randy.) I’m here today because I need to get something off my
chest. I suffer from OCD. Well OCD minus the Compulsive Disorder so maybe just O. This is something
I’ve recently come to realize. In my past I find something I really like until I consume all of it thoroughly
and completely and move on to the next thing that I obsess over. Well it’s time to stop keeping these
things to myself and share them with you, the people. So How Many Beards presents to you: Randy’s
Monday Obsession.
