How are you teams doing?

Covid Impact

Late in the season, when shit is crazy and it matters Covid hits.

According to sporting news: for week 17 

    More than 100 players have already landed on the COVID/reserve list ahead of Week 17 games, and there were 96 positive tests alone on Monday, a new high for a single day.

At the start of Week 16, more than 200 players were on the COVID/reserve list. At the beginning of Week 17, various players are being activated, but dozens more are being put into the league’s protoc

New Sketchy Guidelines

CDC Shortening guidelines

  • Rationale: “Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to five days, if asymptomatic, followed by five days of wearing a mask when around others,” the CDC said in a statement.
  • Real ratio: Delta ceo asks in a letter: “With the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, the 10-day isolation for those who are fully vaccinated may significantly impact our workforce and operations,” Bastian wrote. “Similar to healthcare, police, fire, and public transportation workforces, the Omicron surge may exacerbate shortages and create significant disruptions.”

Season 4, Episode 1 – Older & Wiser

The next God of War and grand turismo will not be exclusive to ps5. Was this always the play or is this what you have to do for fans due to limited supply of ps5?

From polygon“Hulst said that the 7-year-old PS4 is “very much” a focus for future game development at Sony, and that the company can’t and won’t walk away from the 110 million PS4 owners out there. “I think that’d be bad news for fans of PS4, and frankly not very good business,” he said. (For a comparison, Sony said that it had shipped 7.8 million units of the PS5 as of March 31.)”

Horizon: The Forbidden West:

State of Play gameplay reveal trailer. Thoughts, feelings, reactions

Upcoming Games

Battlefield 2042 trailer dropped. NickBeam, why is this exciting news?

From Polygon: Battlefield 2042 is being built for PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X, the platforms that will support those 128 player counts. (Last-gen consoles will max out at 64 players.) The focus is on multiplayer; there’s no traditional single-player campaign this time, DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson confirmed in a preview of the game last week. Instead, DICE will deliver its narrative over time through Battlefield 2042’s live service and seasonal content.

Episode Notes


Animated Violence

Invincible Season 1  – Trailer

Castlevania season 4 – Trailer

The movie experience in a panorama

Demon slayer film

Army of the dead



Twitch introduced a new “pools, hot tubs and beaches ” category Implications on streamers so far has been that ads are taken from people streaming in this category. The verge reports that:

In particular, the ad suspension hit Amouranth, who is one of the platform’s biggest streamers. Her channel is now showing ads again, though it appears her hot tub streams have been removed.

Twitch says its policies on what is and isn’t allowed on the platform aren’t changing. The company is not going to prevent people from streaming in hot tubs or swimwear. While sexually suggestive content remains banned, context-appropriate clothing — like bathing suits in a pool — is allowed.


Jeffanity misses Mixer, twitch seems so unsettled as a streaming platform. For every one thing they do its after they’ve taken 57 steps back . Like there is the amount of harassment women get, the seemingly random permabans, the ad pulling.  How do y’all feel about the platform



McDonalds & The American Job Market

Love the pandemic because it has allowed time and pressure to build up at particular pressure points and have since exploded. All the “essential” fast food workers have had it and left these multi million dollar companies struggling. It is going around the internet that a McDonalds location is offering an iphone to qualified employees after 5 months of work in an attempt to get people hiring. Mean while other chains are experiencing same issues with employees including a Hardees where everyone quit so they had go close. 

Thoughts/feelings/reactions? Would you rather a livable wage or iphone 6 lol


Billboard Music Awards

Canada was all up in that bitch. The weeknd continues his beef with the grammys by running his dick through the BBMA . Mans went home with a lot of trophies. (top artist, top male artist, top hot 100 artist)  & 

Drake is honored with artist of the decade. 

For context: Winners are based on “audio and video streaming, album and digital song sales, radio airplay, and social engagement,” throughout the year as tracked by Billboard

BET Awards

Best Female Rapper

Niggas are hot over the nominations, outside of CHikka’s reactions people are pointing out colorism possibly playing a role, idk but thats what the internet said. I def had to google Coi Leray.

Im about to start listening to Flo Milli on the reg

Released the nominees for best female rapper- Chikka reacts, but from the point where they want all these people do to their freestyles and production, but wont recognize them for their talent with a nomination. I agree, fuck them.

Meg and dababy have 7 noms each (although last year i think dababy had that many but didn’t win) fuck the industry.

The Console Wars

Playstaion 5 sets a marker.

Reported by Ign: As revealed by The NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella, this news arrives one month after the PS5 became the fastest-selling console in U.S. history in dollar sales.

Despite that new record, the Nintendo Switch has continued its reign as the best selling hardware platform in both units and dollars during March 2021. However, the PS5 did rank first in hardware dollar sales in Q1 2021.

Does this matter with console scarcity?

Johnson and Johnson

 According to NPR Federal health officials have called for a “pause” in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after reports that six women who got the vaccine developed blood clots afterward. Close to 7 million people have gotten this vaccine in the U.S. to date.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the blood clots are extremely rare but that it is reviewing the cases. The agency says it expects this pause to last for “a matter of days.”

Where the hoes at?! 

According to NPR and other sources, the DA of Manhattan is on one:

Manhattan’s district attorney announced Wednesday that his office will no longer prosecute prostitution and unlicensed massage under a new policy that’s believed to be the first of its kind in New York.

Cyrus Vance Jr. also appeared virtually in Manhattan Criminal Court to request the dismissal of more than 900 such cases dating back to the 1970s, according to a press release. He moved to dismiss another 5,000 cases related to the state’s controversial anti-loitering statute, which New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo repealed in February.

…The district attorney’s office said it had identified 5,994 cases in its records — dating back to 1976 — that involved an open bench warrant as well as a top charge of either prostitution, unlicensed massage or “loitering for the purpose of prostitution,” all misdemeanors.

Of those, 878 are prostitution cases and 36 are related to unlicensed massage. The remaining 5,080 listed “loitering for the purpose of prostitution” as the top charge, and Vance asked the court to dismiss those as well. He said his office has not prosecuted that crime since 2016 and noted it was removed from the state’s penal code earlier this year.

The Culture


NFT’ A non-fungible token (NFT) means a digital item that belongs to the person that purchased it. In economics, fungibility is the property of a good being interchangeable, or replicable. For example, if you shared a photo from your phone to another person over a text message, the data and image would be replicated.

The NFT does not stop that replication – you could still take a screenshot of a digital artwork, or share a Nyan Cat GIF – but it does show who ‘owns’ an original image – in the same way your passport image also contains your name, age, and an identification number. Simply owning an image of your passport does not make that person you, and the principle applies here for NFTs.

While NTFs exist on a blockchain, like the cryptocurrencies used to buy them, there are a number of other differences: NFTs are indestructible on the blockchain, cannot be divided, and can always be traced back to the original creator.

Hov sells tidal for almost 300 mil, so who says it was a failed service? 

  • Square will pay $297 million in stock and cash for the stake in Tidal. Jay-Z will join Square’s board.
  • The announcement comes less than two weeks after Jay-Z announced that he would sell 50 percent of his champagne company, Armand de Brignac — better known as Ace of Spades — to LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton amid a downturn in the entertainment industry caused by the pandemic that has affected some of Jay-Z’s holdings.

Fortnite and Rocket League players can receive up to $50 or in-game credits thanks to a $26.5 million settlement resolving an Epic Games class action lawsuit.

Eligible Class Members are anyone in the United States who, at any point between July 1, 2015, and the date of preliminary approval, had a Fortnite or Rocket League account they used to play either game on any device, in any mode, and exchanged in-game virtual currency for an in-game benefit, or who purchased virtual currency or other in-game benefits for use within Fortnite or Rocket League.

Class Members filing valid claims can receive up to $50 or 1,000 Fortnite V-Bucks or Rocket League credits.

CD Project Fail

  • CDPR Gets hacked and source codes stolen for GWENT, Witcher,. CDPR Said they wouldn’t play ball
    • Dark web monitoring organisation KELA (which previously provided The Verge with what it believes to be legitimate file lists from CD Projekt’s Red Engine) reports that an auction set up to sell the files has now been closed after a “satisfying offer” was made from outside of the forum it was being held on. That offer reportedly stipulates that the code will not be distributed or sold further. Cybersecurity account vx-underground also reported that it had heard the sale was completed.
    • In a report aided by KELA yesterday, The Verge explained that the auction required a deposit to enter (intended to show potential buyers that this wasn’t a scam auction), with bids starting at $1,000,000, moving up in $500,000 increments. Vx-underground also reported that source code (or at least fragments of source code) for Gwent had been released, which could have been another showing of proof that the files were in hand before the auction.


Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group released the sales results for January 2021 today, revealing that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was the month’s bestselling game in the United States. On top of that, the shooter has managed to become the 20th bestselling game ever in the U.S. This might not sound impressive, but considering it’s only been on the market since November 2020, it’s remarkable the game has sold so quickly. The full NPD Twitter thread can be seen below.
