Limp Bizkit – Ready To Go?

lbBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

I’ve always operated under the theory that there is one way to tell if someone is trustworthy; does said person like Limp Bizkit? If their answer is anything other than yes, you definitely can’t trust them. This person is a liar. See this is a trick question, everyone likes Limp Bizkit.

In Klinnsman We Trust: Now’s not the time for fear

alg-us-dempsey-jpgBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

Now’s not the time for fear. That comes later.”

In regards to the USMNT team qualifying for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, I wish that Bane was right. Unfortunately, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I am actually starting to fear that the Stars and Stripes might not be making the trip to Brazil.

Dangeruss: An inspiration to James Franco

mgid-uma-content-mtvBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

“Dangeruss, the most talented unsigned rappers [sic] in the game, and has a doctrine in skurrt skurrt with a fork.” This of course is if off of the Twitter of unsigned, underground rapper Dangeruss.

Who is Dangeruss you ask and why am I writing about an unsigned rapper from St. Petersburg, Florida?

Poor Scholars Friday Links

r-kellyBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

Each week, we at Poor Scholars try to bring you the best articles we can that capture the current zeitgeist while also mixing in some 90s nostalgia — and random shit. Being that we are all actually poor scholars, most of us have other obligations, mainly other jobs, that we must attend to in order to do things like pay our rent or buy groceries (it’s bullshit, I know). We are saddled with the nuisance of being productive, working members of society which at times can shift our focus away from writing for Poor Scholars. No longer will we let this atrocity stand.

Previewing ‘The Hangover Part III’

hangoverpart3BY RAMBO NOMOLOS

Yesterday, the trailer for The Hangover Part III was released to the public. We all knew that Todd Phillips and the rest of the gang were coming back for another money grab sequel, but this kind of snuck up on me. I had no idea it was coming out any time soon.

Great Wrestling Entrances: Shawn Michaels

shawnmichaelsBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

A buzzing crowd of thousands teeming with anticipation simultaneously become hushed. The lights in the arena fade to black. The first note of a song resonates through the sound system accompanied by a coordinated pyrotechnic show. A legion of loyal fans erupts with a chorus of cheers. They get their first glimpse as the performer enters the stage and they completely lose their shit.

The aforementioned scene is something that happens in a different city almost every single night of the year. It isn’t a rock concert either. This is the entrance of one of your favorite WWE superstars. Continue reading

Exploring a Poor Scholar’s DVR: Rambo

dvrBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

Many people have said that a person’s DVR provides a window into one’s soul. Okay, technically speaking, many people actually reflect “I” in this case as I just completely invented that soon to be colloquial expression. Nonetheless, there is a certain truth to that saying. You really can decipherer a great deal of knowledge about someone’s interests and personality by judging them based on what TV shows they like to watch. You may argue with that notion and that is fine, but we are not actually here to talk about the understated, psychological meaning that every television show we watch reflects.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we at Poor Scholars are here simply to present the shows we watch on our DVR and in turn be given the chance to berate one another over shitty TV viewing choices. A DVR Roast if you will.

Work Place Improvements with Rambo

Aside from being a member of the prestigious Poor Scholars staff, like most Americans (in these trying economic times, “most Americans” is used very loosely) I have the unpleasant task of waking my ass up every morning and trekking to a regular 9-5 office job. This isn’t to say that I hate my job because really it isn’t that bad and generally I enjoy the people I work with, but in relative terms compared to the other things I could be doing with my time, it does suck. A majority of us regular Joes who hold steady jobs in various capacities would rather be doing things like traveling the world, laying on a beach somewhere or in my case sitting on my ass playing video games and watching TV all day. Sadly, only so many people can make up the 1% of society who are able to live like this and at this point the only way this will ever be a reality for most of the population is by some fortuitous event that brings instant wealth (think about the lottery). While being both poor and not white trash enough to win the lottery – seriously there has to be a statistic somewhere relating socioeconomic status to lottery wins – I am resigned to the fact that I will have a normal, median career for the rest of my life.

Why you ask, am I bringing this up?

Good question.

New star joins ‘Fast and Furious Six’

ff6BY RAMBO NOMOLOS

Yesterday news broke that may alter the entire course of history. This news was so mind-blowing and revolutionary that I am almost at a loss for words. Of course, we at Poor Scholars are referring to this exclusive story that Ain’t It Cool News unleashed on the world yesterday. Are you ready for this? I mean really ready? More than a few people who I told about this have already pissed their pants in pure jubilation upon hearing the news. Okay, but don’t say I didn’t warn you if you have to leave work after soiling yourself with palpable excitement.

Top Ten Michael Jordan Commercials

Jordan-SPikeBY RAMBO NOMOLOS

For someone growing up in Chicago during the Jordan era Bulls, it’s almost hard to fathom that Michael Jordan will turn 50 this Sunday.  It’s almost sad when you think about it really. There is an entire generation of kids growing up who will never fully appreciate His Airness and who never got to see his championship runs with the Bulls. Some of them will never truly appreciate his greatness and will be confined to watching YouTube highlight clips of the greatest basketball player to ever live.
