Since the beginning of the year, I have been listening to a lot of podcasts and two of the podcasts I listen to is called The Simpson Show and Back to the Futurama. As you can guess these podcasts talk about the Simpsons and Futurama respectively.
The Simpson Show started with episode 1 of season 1 and the podcasters have been reviewing each episode since then and they are currently on season 9. At the end of each episode the hosts will then rank the episode with all the other episodes, for example, Homer’s Enemy is number 1 while Homer’s Odyssey is 160 something.
Back to the Futurama is done in the same format except that the hosts give a grade at the end of each episode.
Since the hosts of Back to the Futurama do not rank the episodes I have decided to watch Futurama in order and rank the episodes as I watch them. My next post will have the first episodes listed and I may include a favorite quote from the last episode I watched and as I watch episodes I will rank them according to how I think they should rank.
If you like how I order them or if you disagree please let me know by leaving a comment.

I have a new video game obsession, for those of you on Twitter and Facebook you probably know the game is Overwatch since I have been doing live broadcasts almost everyday.
The game is a first person shooter(FPS) and very fun. I am by no means great at it nor will I ever be but it is still fun. Below is a video of me playing Junkrat which I must say is my favorite toon. I hope you enjoy.
I am sure my idea has been thought of before but I will pitch it anyways for any #Geico, #HBO or Game of Throne #GOT executives who will never see this post.
Below is a compilation of past Geico commercial in which the announcer says does switching to Geico really save you 15% or more? Does x do y.
Most of us if not all of us have seen these commercials or similar.
My idea is the scene opens with an epic sea battle between the fleet of Euron Greyjoy and the fleet of Yara Greyjoy. There are cannons exploding epic fires and parts of ships sinking into the sea. After a few seconds all battle stops as a young man is seen rowing a small rowboat through the middle of the fight and at that moment an announcer says, “Can Geico insurance save you 15% or more by switching insurance? Does Gendry row?”
As mentioned in my last post I have been playing a tempo mage in Hearthstone and I have done well with it. I am not sure on the exact win rate and the reason is that I have been playing on my PC, my Ipad and my Iphone. The games on my Ipad and Iphone do not get tracked so if you look at my deck on hearthstats.net you will see a 7 and 5 record. Just from memory I believe I have won at least another 5 games and 3 losses at the most.So if you add those my record is 12 – 8 for a 60% win rate. But as mentioned I think it is higher than that. I started the season at rank 23 and currently I am rank 14 with 3 stars which means If I had no win streaks I would have won 28 times. As mentioned I have had win streaks 3 to be precise so that would be at least 3 less wins but still more than the 12. I mention all that to explain why the numbers are off.
The deck is tempo and the purpose of the deck is to keep tempo in your favor. For me at least once I lose tempo the wins are hard to come by. Another key element is to try and be mana efficient but not wasting cards senselessly. A good example of efficient is when you have a flamewaker on the board and your opponent has a minion with 1 health and you have a Arcane intellect card and 3 mana left. It is smart to play the card because there is a 50 50 chance that the minion will die from the flamewaker and even if it does not you now have 3 cards.
An example of inefficient is the same scenario but instead of arcane intellect you have a frostbolt. Using the frostbolt would be a waste because the minion dies and you lose the frostbolt. The best move would be to hero power the minion that way it is off the board and you have a spell to use later on.
Now that I have explained what I think a tempo mage is lets look at the deck list
The deck list above is almost identical to 100 other tempo mage decks you may see but I have tried to be a little different.
Most tempo decks I see run 4 secrets and those are usually Duplicate and Mirror Entity or Counterspell. I run only 3, 1 Mirror Image and 2 Effigy. The reason for this is that I have found that may people will try to play around Mirror image and Counterspell and as such waste cards that could help them out later on. I share on some risks also because if an opponent kills a low cost minion well I am stuck with a low cost cards so with that being said all 3 cards are better in the mid to late game however sometimes you just can’t avoid it. In my ideal world Effigy goes best with Ragnaros the Firelord. It seems every time effigy activates off of him I get Kel’Thuzad which is almost an instant win. A list of 8 cost minions are located at hearthpwn.com. If you click the link you will see there are several cool 8 cost minion cards.
My last card that is different from most is Ragnaros the Firelord. Most mage run Archmage Antonidas and it seems to me that I do not get much use out of him.
As mentioned this deck has been fun and I would love to hear what other people think about the deck.
#andysocial This past week Blizzard announced that they had partnered with Apple concerning a Hearthstone Promotional. Anyone using a IOS device can purchase the Khadgar Mage skin for $4.99 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund. I am not that big of a fan of charities but I do like the WWF and Khadgar is one of my favorite World of Warcraft characters (WOW) so I figured what the hey.
Since I bought the skin I decided to play a few games with a mage deck that I had already created. The deck is a tempo mage and my record this weekend with it was somewhere around 15 – 5. Not bad work for not playing much the past month.
Because I played the mage I decided to work on some deck building and wanted to see what others think of the deck. I need to point out that I realize the new format is coming to Hearthstone in a coupe of weeks and that most of my cards will not be playable in Standard mode after the update. I am OK with this. I am just trying to make a deck that I can play right now and with a class I do not play much.
|| The class I chose is the rouge class. Most of my luck with rouge has been bad and the class just has not been fun for me. I hope with my deck I can do well and maybe get a few wins.
The name of my deck is Mech rouge and as you can guess there are a lot of Mech’s in the deck.
Below is my deck list.
When creating this deck I wanted to utilize Gazlowe and the way I do that is having 2 Clockwork Gnomes, a Mechanical Yeti and 2 Deadly Poison. The potential to get amazing cards are good. The second way I get more minions is by utilizing Gorillabot A – 3.
Since I hope to be drawing a lot of Mechs I want to buff them if possible and so I have 2 Iron Sensei. I have not had a chance to have 2 on the board but I bet when it happens it will be a beautiful thing.
Another goal of having all these minions is to eventually play Mimiron,s Head. See below what happens when he lives and you have at least 3 other Mechs on the board.
Most rouge decks have some good removals however I run only 1 Sap and no assassination. So far this has not been an issue and the reason for that is the Goblin Auto Barber and Blade Flurry. In one of my matches I had a blade with + 5 thanks to that card and poison. The hope is I have just enough with Backstab, Eviscerate and Shiv.
The last 2 things I did with the deck was to add Lorewalker Cho and Gadgetran Auctioneer. The auctioneer might be one I remove because he just does not feel right and Cho I plan to keep because I have found people will go out of their way to not cast spells when he is up. Another fun thing to do with him is to give Poison and Blade Flurry to classes that can not use weapons. It is always fun to see a mage with 3 cards they can never play.
I am looking for ways to improve this deck and would love to hear what other people have to say and suggestions. Once again I know this deck will not be useful when standard comes out but hey, I will cross that bridge when I get there.
