So Bad Piggies has been a vacuum of time wasting and a staple to how I spend my time in class.  Between Bad Piggies and stressing to get articles done in time, I think I might enjoy some mindless time wasting via Rovio’s latest mobile app.  Bad Piggies is a spin-off of the Angry Birds franchise that circles around the bad guys of the original game.  This time, they’re in your hands to acquire the thing they desire most: eggs.  On your way to get the eggs, a number of hijinx ensue where you must help the pigs acquire pieces to maps that lead to the eggs.  Unfortunately pieces are in unattainable areas and require you to help the pigs build miraculous contraptions to ge from point A to point B.  The process is fun, challenging, and the time spent:payment ratio far exceeds the $0.99 game for iPhone.

We Tried to Change Our Theme and Failed Miserably

Last Friday, I tried to do something silly by changing themes.  I looked at what the best WordPress themes had to offer and tried to activate and tweak some things.  I tried to Google some things about the best WordPress themes, but many of them were for the WordPress.org themes.  I’ve tried hard into trying a magazine style where we can keep some of the better articles at the top.  A lot of the [free] themes don’t offer enough customization and enough creative freedom, so in my frustration, I reverted back to this old theme.  In the end, I truly mean to migrate to a new site where I can web design and have the customization and creative freedom.

Pop culture is all around us today.  It entertains us with their creative innovation and gimmicks.  What’s to say that these programs and games don’t exist in movie and tv universes.  The link below will get you to another Cracked photoplasty where they’ve taken famous characters and put them in situations we see daily, whether that be watching American Idol or playing their version of Angry Birds.
