50 Cent’s Power

I’ve been watching 50 Cent’s series Power and learned today that someone leaked episodes of the latest season.

Power is a crime drama that features Omari Hardwick as James St. Patrick. He’s a nightclub owner who is also a major player in the city’s illegal drug trade.

Rapper 50 Cent is the producer and part of the inspiration from the show comes from his book, The 50th Law, which he co-wrote with Robert Greene, the original author of the 48 Laws of Power.


Air Assault in Clash Royale

Lately I’ve been back in Clash Royale but experimenting with almost all air units, at least for the attack. I’m having lots of luck with Minion Horde and Balloon in particular. If they can both get to the Tower, they’ll take it down in seconds.

You really need a tank to make this work effectively. When I’m sticking with all air units, I use the Baby Dragon. But I think a more effective tank is the old faithful Giant. I just feel like I’m cheating when using him, because I’m trying hard to go with an all-out air assault.

Of course the Legendary Inferno Dragon is another huge piece of your arsenal if you’re lucky enough to have him.


I’m still working on putting together some YouTube videos of tips and tricks. I’m using ScreenFlow to capture video from my iPhone on my Mac and then just assembling iOS screenshots and Mac screenshots by hand. So far it’s looking good but I don’t have anything strong enough to upload right now. Soon!



I’m Perplexed with Choices

It’s time to sit down and write a new story, but I find myself perplexed with the choices in front of me. Here is a short list of the options that I am considering.

The story is about a car salesman who has a mysterious admirer: a baseball player. It takes place in a government building in a town. The crux of the story involves longing.

This is a crime caper story with a focus on relativism. The story is about a composed college student who was once married to a servant. It starts in a doctor’s office in a large city. The story ends with someone going to sleep after doing 200 pushups.

This is a tale about relativism and man’s need for control. The story is about a heroine. It takes place in a tourist town in South America. The story climaxes with a surrender to the pull of exercise.

This is a morality tale. The story is about a cynical hero. It takes place in a port city. The story begins with a lecture and ends with someone pretending to be someone else. Tradition versus modernity plays a major part in this story.

The story is about a heroine dressed in a green flowing dress. It takes place in an underground laboratory. The critical element of the story is a confession.

This is a comedy with a focus on ascension and how even the smartest person makes mistakes. The story is about a hunter. It starts in Los Angeles. The effect of globalization on religion plays a major role in this story.

The story is about a guild of industrious novelists. It starts in a prison. The critical element of the story is someone writing a book.

This is a story about overcoming the odds. The story is about a paranoid psychologist. It starts in a convenience store in Mexico City. The story begins with a surgery, climaxes with an intimidation, and ends with someone getting a new job.

This is a crime drama. The story is about a movie reviewer with no hope. It starts in a jail in Hollywood. Shifts in economic dominance play a major role in this story.

This is a story about the dangers of small-mindedness. The story is about a heroic pharmacist who is stalked by a rogue. It takes place in a synagogue in Seattle. The story begins with a confession, climaxes with an education, and ends with the failure at a test. The issue of global warming plays a major role in this story.
