It's no secret that I'm a movie buff (BTW: Thanks for making SmokkeScreenings + my most read blog!!) but I used to be equally hooked on video games, music, and TV shows, especially the longest running TV sitcom in history, The Simpsons. I've made it a habit to not be around video games for any real period of time because of my competitive nature even going as far as not installing games on my phone but c'mon man, who doesn't like The Simpsons?

I know what I must do and I'm so on it right now. Won't nothing else distract me from finishin... Holy Shit!! I almost forgot my NFL Fantasy League's Draft night is today!! Let me get on that real quick. Later WORLD!
