Would You Rather: Questions 151-160

In this latest edition of Would You Rather, yours truly goes with a classic Harry Potter theme courtesy of those fine folks at Buzzfeed

151. Would you rather drink butter beer or pumpkin juice? 

The butter beer option is highly intriguing. But despite the fictional world, the rationale of it sounds highly concerning. Like, butter beer? I don't know. Yeah, pumpkin juice just sounds like a good, normal, go-to for muggles. However, I'm still highly intrigued by butter beer, but only in a fictional Harry Potter world, I guess.  

152. Would you rather learn to apparate or become an anigimus? 

This is easy. Give me the ability to apparate. That's cool. I really don't have any interest in being any type of animal. Not at all. I'll pass. 

153. Would you rather stay the summer with the Malfoys or Dursleys? 

Oooooh, this is a good one! Stay with me on this, but I would choose the Malfoys. I really believe they're misunderstood. There needs to be a 60-Minutes expose on the real Malfoys, and it likely will show they were held beyond their will in servitude to Voldemort. All of the Malfoys just felt fake in their devotion to the Death Eaters. So yeah, I'm going with the Malfoys. I'll be looking to get the real scoop on them. 

The Dursleys just felt like a fine family who were just a casualty of the muggle/wizard intersection. Nothing of interest there for me. 

155. Would you rather be one of the Hogwarts paintings or one of the Hogwarts ghosts?

The ghost thing would be weird. I can't imagine the countless explanations Myrtle the Ghost had to engage in. Especially, in the bathroom. Just weird. Being a painting would be cool - I see it as being trapped in a really good memory forever, while still have a window to the current world. 

156. Would you rather be a seeker or beater in Quidditch? 

Defense wins championships. Give me the beater spot. Especially in a sport where it seems so easy to score. 

157. Would you rather have the resurrection stone or the invisibility cloak? 

The Invisibility cloak for sure. There is just something really cool about it that I can't explain. 

158. Would you rather betray Dumbledore or become a Death Eater? 

Betray Dumbledore. I never trusted him to begin with, and well, he ends up betraying you, anyway. Might as well beat him to it. The Death Eater is a cool name...I'd probably hang with the Malfoys. 

160. Would you rather have Dolores Umbridge or Voldemort as your neighbor?

Give me Voldemort as my neighbor. Delores Umbridge just seems like the kind of lady who will ring my doorbell because some of the leaves from a tree rooted on my property fell in her yard. 

Sure, Voldemort would be up to shady shit, but you know, it's Voldemort. I see myself waiving to Voldemort and his group from my backyard thinking, oh, it's just Voldemort and the Death Eaters plotting to get Harry. I'd probably invite him over to the BBQ - mellow out that anger a bit with a burger - maybe a Volde-burger. We'll make a few Death Eater jokes while chowing on some macaroni salad - you know, the usual of living next door to a Wizard Terrorist. 

I just realized from these questions how much sympathy I have for the Death Eaters. 

161. Would you rather wizards be real and never find out because you were a muggle, or that everything about Harry Potter was fiction? 

The thought of Harry Potter being real, and a real person being that bad of a friend to those who are helping him not get killed has to remain fiction. It just has to. I couldn't take that person being true.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Kansas City Royals)

The Kansas City Royals' City Connect uniforms were a design that I wholeheartedly looked forward to. The Royals' current uniforms and aesthetics are some of the best in baseball, and for a city like Kansas City, it just feels like there was enough room creatively to do something historically enlightening (more so something many do not already know about the city), or a simple approach that builds off of the current design.  To be honest, it may sound simple, but the use of "blue" by the Royals is fantastic.  What we got is a concept that continued the awesome blue approach, with a design concept that is just as cool as their everyday threads. However, where I feel disappointed is the safe approach to this. I would have loved to see them lean into the rich history of the Negro Leagues that is Kansas City - a team (and city) able to do so more than others. That could have been really cool, enriching, meaningful, and somewhat different from the norm - maybe even an ode t

Today, and Someday

Today,  I push to leave on time, to place my ambition on rewind,  to conquer a list,  to feed the drive, to escape amiss Someday,  I'll work to return home soon, with purpose in tune,  to pursue the extent,  to feed my heart, for Today, I repent. 

Royal Rumble 2022 Review: "Struggles of the Current Product Came Glaring Through the Cracks"

The Royal Rumble is easily my favorite wrestling event of the year - solely for the sake of the match, the aura of the pageantry, and all of the drama that comes with it. Nothing is like that buzzer going off, the surprise entrant, and that possible encounter we've been waiting for, or we thought would never happen. It's pro wrestling's All-Star Game in a nutshell.   The event carries so much nostalgia for this wrestling fan, that no matter how bad I think the WWE product currently is - and believe me, I'm no longer avidly watching it - I will still plan my weekend around the event. Unfortunately, this year's Rumble provided that nostalgia, but the sheer struggles of the current product - again, at least to and for this fan - came glaring through the cracks.  Overall, I found the event to be fun. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns was awesome. Mickie James getting her flowers was super cool, you can't replicate that big fight feel of Lashley vs. Lesnar, and of course
