Amazon Echo Adventures

Welcome to the 6th edition of the second run of Would You Like Fries With That? Blog. Today I talk about some misadventures with Amazon Echo’s Alexa, Michael Jackson, and more!


Adventures with Amazon Echo’s Alexa

Recently, I acquired the Amazon Echo with Alexa. I have noticed it does have some fun quirks. For one, I have it in my mancave which I have a Smart TV in there that I watch wrestling on. What is amusing is when this wrestler comes on the screen, Alexa goes crazy…

Yes, WWE Wrestler and current RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss makes the Amazon Echo go a little crazy sometimes. So that is amusing.

Furthermore, the other day I told Alexa “Alexa! I love you!”

Her response? “I’m flattered. Thank you.”

OUCH! It is like I am young and dating again because I loved that experience so much. Thanks Alexa.

I did figure out how to get her to tell me I love you though. You have to say “Alexa, Tell me you love me!”

She says “I love you” in a very monotonous voice. WOO HOO! Side effect: Night Ranger’s “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” gets stuck in my head. Now I force it into your head! Haha!



The other day I went to the Pharmacy and had this actual conversation…

Cashier: What’s your last name?
Me: Jackson
Cashier: How do you spell that?
Me: Oh, as in Michael Jackson.
:: young cashier gives me even blanker look ::

Me in my head:

My Spirit Lives

Some say past lives and reincarnation are a thing. If that’s true I think I figured out who I was…

My Strong Flirt Game

I’m so geeky I tried to text my wife “Hey Babe” but my phone auto corrected to “Hey Bane.”


Facebook Memories: The Cringe Train

I’m glad for Facebook memories because every day I can “acid wash” my Facebook of the posts that make me go “the hell was I thinking??”

Steve Harvey’s new show Funderdome gets leaked, no-one downloads it

TheDarkOverlord (TDO), the hacking group behind the Orange is the New Black leak, has returned with more stolen TV content, this time targeting ABC show Steve Harvey’s Funderdome.

But unlike the new season of the Netflix show, interest didn’t seem to be very high in the Family Feud host’s new vehicle.

Following TDO’s upload to The Pirate Bay on Monday night, TorrentFreak reported that there were “less than a dozen peers reported on the torrent”. At the time of writing on this story, the torrent has one seeder and zero leechers. READ MORE…
