We receive all kinds of email at Destructoid. We mostly get death threats, naked women covered in video games, news tips, legal threats, polar bear ransom letters, and desperate pleas for Summa's home address. Once in a blue moon, however, we receive stories chock full of win. Ladies and gentlemen ... meet Brock Dainjer.
Living in L.A., I get to see a lot of interesting things, like well dressed homeless people with nice tans. Or non-well dress homeless people with poop on their hands and an utter hatred for people without poophands. Last tuesday was certainly no exception. After learning that the reason that everything outside looked like a background from Bad Boys was due to the smoke from the Griffith Park Fires, I drove to the local Best Buy mall complex to get a good look at it.
The fires were fucking crazy, although these cel-phone pics don't really do it justice. And I also missed grabbin a pic of this homeless woman that was completely doable. But anyways, after watching the fires whip around the hills for a little while, I decided to go into the Best Buy and see if any good movies had come out. While roaming the dvd's, my friend noticed a big to-do over at the gaming cage. Upon further investigation, we had apparently wondered in right as a shipment of Wii's were being unloaded. So I immediately got in line and had my friend put back my two copies of Music & Lyrics (one to lend out and one to tape to ceiling over my bed).
So, to make a long story a little bit longer, it ends up that after being beckoned to the Los Feliz shopping center by the insane Griffith Park fires, I as well as several others had shown up at just the right time to purchase a Wii from a shipment that Best Buy didn't even know was coming. Coincedence? Or the Japanese version of viral marketing? Well, Brock Dainjer is just one man and this is just one man's opinion, but I'll tell ya what, brother, I'm gonna go get shitfaced and find that hot homeless lady and never think about this again.
