The Launch of Hungry Jerks

As I alluded to in my last post, The Jerks have been taking a little time off from this site to spend time doing what they do best- shit like pigging out at restaurants, watching/making movies, and playing video games.

The Jerks eat out a combined 3-4 thousand times per year. So it is only fitting that we pull a fucking John Chow and make some blog posts and pictures of the shitty food we eat.

The Bunch of Jerks site has always been unfocused mayhem. It's just about whatever we feel like writing about. Ostensibly an "entertainment" blog, there is no real targeted content or theme. Just a Bunch of Jerks talking about anything.

We've always known there would be specific topics we might want to write about, but they might not fit into BOJ so neatly. I mean, a random review here and there works, but if we want to really focus on something, we probably need another blog/sites.

So we have decided to launch a restaurant reviews blog. Since all these reviews are going to be handled by the same Bunch of Jerks you've grown to love over the years from reading BOJ and the wildly popular ( I hear it's still Big in Japan) Devon Lohan blog, we are going to keep the whole "Jerks" theme..but apply it to food. You know, fat guys eating and talking about it, and taking pictures.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of:

Hungry Jerks

p.s. We already have a great review of the Cheesecake Factory. Check it out.

Where Did All the Jerks Go?

I've been out of town for about a week. I come back and there are no new posts by the other Jerks.

Where did they go? I found out:

They have been too busy EATING to post on this blog. Seriously.

More to come.

J.U.A.N. Watching Netflix Streaming on my Wii

Right Now I am watching streaming movies on my Nintendo Wii. Do you care? Probably not. I just remembered that Random made a post awhile back about Netflix Instant Streaming on the Wii coming in the Spring.

Well, Spring came and went and the Summer of 2010 is almost gone as well. Finally I got my Wii setup for Netflix streaming. It was pretty easy, even though I had never hooked my Wii up to the internet.

I got my wife a Netflix Subscription for Christmas last year. We did the whole 1 disc at a time through the mail thing. We also streamed some movies on our computers, but the television screen is much better.

I read Random's post from last winter as well as the instructions on the Netflix site, and this seemed easy enough. I had to send away for a free setup disc from Netflix. It came the next day. I had to configure the internet connection for the Wii to obtain an access code to enter on the Netflix website.

Setting up the internet was very easy. I have the ATT Uverse triple play service. I have 6-7 different computers running off my wireless network, which is through their 2wire gateway. I just had to select that I was using a wireless network, and select my network from the options.

After my connection was recognized and setup, the Wii showed an activation key. I entered that on the Netflix site, and we were good to go.

The Wii remote works pretty well, and the menu options are decent. However, I find the best way to use the Wii is to go into your Netflix account on your computer and add movies to your instant queue. Then they are really easy to select on the Wii.

Well that's about it. Time to go watch Netflix movies on the Wii.

LMAO of the Day: Justin Bieber Nailed with Water Bottle

So the Jerks have been on hiatus for awhile, mainly due to nothing going on lately, and maybe a bit of lost direction on the site.  I've been thinking lately about what the site is missing, and the one conclusion I've come to is that we're just not big enough Jerks!  We should be a little more direct when openly trashing the dumb shit of the world.

What better place to start then the biggest dumbshit on the planet, Justin Bieber.  Some may remember my post where I pointed out that Justin Bieber is obviously gay.  Some even questioned why I would devote anything on this site to the little homo, but it has come to the point where you can't avoid him on TV, radio, magazine stands etc., and it's pretty god damn annoying.  What's funny is, in 2 years or less (probably less) people are going to look back and laugh that they even gave this idiot the time of day after he eventually reveals he likes the sausage.  Actually the movement may already be taking place as evident in the following video.  Someone woke the fuck up while Bieber was on stage, and chunked a water bottle at his HEAD.  GOOD JOB.  Of course any other musician would go off and go crazy screaming "WHO THE FUCK THREW THAT BITCH," but NOT Bieber....he just goes with the OWWW, THAT HURT, I DONT KNOW WHY SHE THREW THAT?"   Um, maybe because you suck and are an embarrassment to life itself?  Just a guess.

Here's to hoping a "throw shit at Bieber coalition" is formed and springs into action every time he hits a stage:
