@nascarcasm: The Gus Blog — I am back

first_imgSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSUP my loyal subjects. It’s been a while since ol’ Gus cracked open the internet box and typed up himself one of them blogs. Why is that? It’s because I tried “vlogging” for a while but that never took because it was 10-minute videos of me barking at nothing and licking my own nether regions and apparently YouTube HAS SOMETHING CALLED “COMMUNITY STANDARDS” AND TOOK IT DOWN.My owner said “Sh-t” on TV years ago and got docked 25 points but HEY, guess what you can still find on YouTube? THIS VERY CLIP. Double-standard much, internet? Sheeeesh.So anyways, got a LOT to cover in a short amount of time ­– it’s scotch-and-cigars night with the bison and they get mad when you arrive late.First, over a year ago, my owner yells “Slide job!” really loud on the TV and y’all react like I do when the mailman pulls up. Apparently none of y’all have been subjected to Dale Jr. yelling things at you for YEARS like I have. You aren’t victimized by a shrill “GUS, NO! GUS, NO!” every time I’m humping a stuffed animal in the living room when company’s over. MAN that pissed him off. First off, I’m a dog, that’s what I do. Second, how the hell was I supposed to know it belonged to Isla? Pardon me for not discerning and keeping an open mind.The fact is, he yells stuff all the time. “DON’T EAT THAT!” “DON’T USE MY EBAY ACCOUNT!” “DON’T USE MY GOOD ELECTRIC BEARD TRIMMER ON YOUR BUTT!” I’m like I GOTS TO KEEP IT CLEAN, GINGER. Y’all love it but it’s been the bane of my existence for years. That and when I’m standing there as he eats a sandwich hoping for some cold cuts to fall on the floor and all I get is mayonnaise dripping onto my head. Know how hard it is to get mayonnaise out of your own fur? It’s like transcribing a Ward Burton interview.On to Isla – I have to admit that she is absolutely adorable and a lot of fun to play with. I like when mom takes me and Isla for walks. So many people walk up and bend down and look at Isla in that little stroller, her big eyes staring back at them, and remarking about what a doll she is. Am I jealous? No. It’s actually a ploy she and I came up with. She distracts them, and I sniff their butts. Call it collusion if you want, I don’t care – butt-sniffing has NEVER been easier. TEAM ISLAGUS. Hold on, Alex Bowman’s dog is calling. I gotta take this. MAN, Alex Bowman, what a guy, and his dogs are a blast. Everyone likes to joke that Alex is still in his rookie year. That’s why I always tell his dogs “Hey, you’re seven!” Get it? It’s a dog years joke. Go to hell, that joke was grade-A beef. Anyways, they were over the night that Alex won at Chicagoland, and we all went over to Alex’s for the celebration. Dude goes through beers like backup cars.They were making noise, chugging maple syrup – basically everything that we would get in trouble for. We all had a good laugh at Alex getting the car stuck in the infield grass. We bury things in the dirt all the time. Usually our owners’ belongings or animal carcasses. Hell, there’s one of Dale’s Asics I took out to the Old West town and buried deeper than Daniel Suarez buried Michael McDowell. HA.OK, that’s all for now, sorry to keep it short. You heard of the Big 3? Well, subtract one, and that’s what I gotta do out in the backyard. Peace.— Gus.last_img read more

Solving the dog poop problem at apartments

first_imgWalking out of your luxurious downtown apartment to a courtyard riddled with dog-laid landmines and the stink of — for lack of a better term — poop isn’t exactly everyone’s favorite thing in the world.To combat the rise of doggie dropping being left on the ground at apartment complexes, despite readily available clean-up bags and trash cans, property managers are starting to use a new high-tech trick: DNA testing.The Residences at Fountainhead is one of the first properties in Arizona to utilize this trick by collecting a DNA sample of every pet resident. When the complex finds a pile of abandoned doggie droppings, they collect a sample and send it for testing.If the DNA from the dropping matches up with a resident culprit, the owner of the offending pet receives a $250 fine. The cost of the test is $75.Bryan Fasulo, regional property manager for Pinnacle Property Management, the firm overseeing The Residences at Fountainhead, says tenants loved the idea about testing Exhibit No. 1 to get to the bottom of who left behind No. 2.With DNA testing, people cannot deny that their pet was the party pooper.“We’re able to pretty much 100 percent go back, and say, ‘Hey, Joe, this was you,’ and give them a chance to correct the situation,” Fasulo explains. “And if they continue doing it, we fine them for doing it. Unfortunately, that’s the only way people learn.”The property managers decided to utilize DNA testing at the Residences because it’s located within a corporate park and is considered high-density. There isn’t much room around the outside of the 322-unit complex and they don’t want the open space riddled with dog waste, Fasulo says.“(Left-behind dog waste) is actually one of the biggest problems we face on properties as a whole,” Fasulo says.Folks are spending so much on downtown properties with nice amenities and a tight-knit community, he says, they don’t want to have to dodge dog poop as they walk out their front doors.last_img read more

Here is an example of something like that that sort of happened in reverse, in what I would say is my least favorite jersey number change: Gilbert Arenas trying to “reinvent” himself by switching from #0 to #9, after the gun incident. He was just never the same player, in any way, and the mood of the entire franchise and fanbase changed accordingly. Gilbert Arenas #0 was known as smiling, fun, quirky, talented, healthy (most of the time), and got-something-to-prove. He was known for scoring 60 points in a game at the Lakers, and reignited excitement in Wizards basketball after a long drought. His most common nickname was “agent zero.” The zero also worked so well with his “zero-to-hero” narrative, and one of his coaches telling him he would play 0 minutes.Gilber Arenas #9 was known as over-the-hill, moody, jaded, sullen, depressed-looking, slow, injured, and a representation of the beginning of an era of some very awful years for the Wizards franchise.

He did solely for self promotion to accommodate a nickname that he didnt even come up withBecause so many people come up with their own nickname…I think you missed what I meant. In Paul George’s case, the PG-13 nickname didn’t even exist. It only was an idea people wanted to see happen and he decided to appoint that to himself. I guess I just wish nicknames these days were more organic than some marketing ploy. If he entered the league and so happen to wear #13, and that coincidence was there, then it would be something unique. But this isn’t what happened — he changed his number so he can intentionally adopt a nickname. phutmasterflex 1,005 2 Share on other sites Posted April 26, 2015 Share this post SCalderwood RollTribe19 Members 0 Share this post 224 2,302 Link to post Share this post Sign in to follow this   4,532 posts The circle of life Dexter Morgan Share this post Share on other sites Dynasty Link to post 5,089 posts Posted April 25, 2015 Share on other sites 0 Initialisms Suck 343 Share on other sites Link to post Share this post Prev Posted April 25, 2015 Location:P.R.

This may be because of a trade, because of superstition, or maybe because a new teammate buys their number and forces them to switch…Whatever it may be, it happens. Here are some of my favorite, and least favorite numeral switches in sports:Favorites:Fisk goes from 27-72, a classic mirror image switch.Jason Giambi said his jersey numbers must always either be 7 or add up to 7 (hence 16,25). Going from 16 to 25 was kinda cool how it worked out.Least favorites:So Kobe goes through legal trouble and thought changing the digits would make us forget…The 8 looked so much better on him!I LOVE Pistol. He’s the reason I wear 44 in softball But, when he went from 44 to 7, I don’t think it looked great on him.What are some of your favs/least favs Paul George’s switch is one of my least favorite. He did solely for self promotion to accommodate a nickname that he didnt even come up withActually, I thought it was good because I think the Pacers’ number font makes 13 look better than 24.
