America, Crazy, and Fila: The '90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi ls Making a Comeback @balleralert The ‘90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi Is Making a Comeback - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look around. Everywhere you go, it’s pretty obvious – the 90s are back and in full effect. So for a generation that’s re-embracing Tommy Hilfiger, FILA, and Super Nintendo, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that the Tamagotchi is making a comeback too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s right, the Japanese “virtual pet” will hit store shelves again in November (just in time for the holidays). Originally released in 1997, the toy had millions of kids addicted to feeding and cleaning up the poop of a pixelated “pet,” and drove parents and teachers alike crazy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly, the re-release of the Tamagotchi will not have any real tech upgrades. The only difference between the 2017 and 1997 version is that it will be about 20% smaller. Bandai America, the company behind the toy, is banking on the love of nostalgia to fuel sales of the virtual pet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to marketing director, Tara Badie: “For many Generation X kids, the Tamagotchi device can be considered America’s first and favorite digital pet. The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question is, will kids raised on smartphones and iPads see the allure in a colorless, pixelated blob the same we we did in the 90s?

Asian, Ass, and Baseball: My tow truck driver and his lil buddy. Pic: reddit u/Slowhand09 @DrSmashlove Aight. Two real quick follow-ups on my post about girls and sports (from Sunday.) First, I take back the comment about hairy armpits on women. Ladies - if u love yo natural body - I love it too. Or if u identify as a gender that doesn’t match your biological sex (thank u to my lil homegirl for explaining this to me), I love u too. If u EVER come to this page and feel “othered” or ostracized, tell me! It’s never my intent. Sometimes my lack of intellect and understanding translates the love in my heart into words that can be hurtful, and I ALWAYS expect y’all to teach me and educate me so I can be a better man out here. Second, I implied that the prototypic female sports fan has a blond pony tail sticking out the back of her baseball cap. My extremely wise sister from another mister @tamashar quickly pointed out that she’s a football fan and does not, in fact, have a blond pony tail. It is axiomatic that it’s sisters out here that love sports. The thing is, when I write, I imagine a story in my head, and I type it out and give it to y’all. So I imagined a loud ass blond girl at a Wrigleyville bar in a faded cubs cap wearing her ex boyfriend’s oversized J Crew hoodie (that she kept because FVCK HIM 🤗) barking loudly and drunkenly about her favorite (and least favorite) cubs players: “OMG GET RID OF PEDRO STROP ALREADY HE’S SUCH A - *WHY* DOES MADDON PUT HIM IN - HE SUCKS - CAN I GET A STELLA OR WHAT I NEED A DRINKY - Oh shit Kelly - kyle texted me - gotta go lol cover my beer baby byeeeee” <— if u got a girl like this in yo squad, tag her 🤗. Anyway I never meant to exclude my sisters, my Latinas, my Asian home girls, etc - they all got ladies that will school u - smash is never exclusionary only inclusionary. That’s all I got. Now don’t comment “SMASH STOP APOLOGIZING” - I don’t do it to be politically correct! (scroll back and tell me if I’ve EVER been politically correct 😂) - I make these statement to show GROWTH and I hope I never stop growing! I’ve always been a grower 🍌 bless up 😍😂😂😂
