Don't sleep on these guys people they are the real deal when it comes to all things geek. They cover everything from gaming to cosplay to movies. If it involves tech or dressing up as a hero look no further.
One of the admins is a friend of ours, Jeremiah Slack, and has helped us in the past on site development. He's branched out and doing his thing and we couldn't be happier for him. You may have noticed him in various events on the west coast and if so be sure to give him a warm welcome for us.
It's been nearly a year since our last give away and we think it's time again. September hence will be known as our 'Fan Appreciation Month'. Rules for contest is fairly simple send us a selfie with the initials G4R included and that's it! You can hold up a sheet of paper with the letters G4R, spell G4R in a plate of spaghetti, write it on your forehead with a marker, whatever... get creative! Pic must include 'G4R' though.
Years ago we held a similar contest and one guy spelled G4R in the snow. I'm not going to tell you how he spelled it but lets just say it involved a lot of beer and a trip outside to relieve himself. It was an instant fan fave lol. We're not encouraging anything this extreme but use your imagination to better your chances.

It's Madden time and guys are pacing around like children on Christmas eve. I've been playing since '01 and attended a cpl of midnight launches back when it was unheard of for a vid game. I remember playing a gm of 'touch football' in the parking lot of a Bmore GameStop a few yrs ago waiting for the doors to open. Good will on earth and peace to all Madden kind was the order for the night haha.
Not even EA anticipated the following this game would have years ago but have capitalized on it nonetheless. Only a handful of events have been released at this appointed hour... Blockbuster movies, Black Friday sales and now Madden! I went to my local GameStop last night and can say I'm getting too old for this stuff lol. Oh props to manager who finally threw out the 4 bums playing the game for an hour w/o buying anything.
Madden has been making wives and girlfriends the side chick for years. In the case of one of our leagues its making a boyfriend the side chick. G4R has featured a female player or two in the past and they can hold their own. These women ask for no favortism and receive none. Hell one even made it as far as our Conference playoff round. For the next couple of months men, and a lady, will be engrossed in this yearly ritual.
Madden has grown beyond the point of mere leagues and lobby games. Guys are making side bets and ponying up big money to prove their skillz. In the past 2 yrs I've met guys who make their living solely on Madden! They earn enough to pay the mortgage and support their family. Still think this is a kid's game?
Alas I have to wrap this up but want to send a Happy Madden Day to all my friends and members. This year we've branded 3 reputable leagues under one umbrella, complete with a 5 man commish staff that oversees all, and look forward to bringing you the best in sports entertainment. G4R will be featuring these lgs on our site over next 12 mos and I'll be working closely with EA to join their development program for upcoming year. I'll include our staff to give valuable input on what fans want to see in future iterations. One of the perks of being in this program is receiving a copy of Madden wks before release. 3 leagues in the click are G4R Madden, True32 Madden and Fantasy Madden 281. We expect number to grow this yr and send us a msg if you want your lg to be featured next year.
Oh we have a community group that is boss run by Commissioner A. Nelson. He dishes out rewards and XPs for each game. Originally started as a project to keep his youth football members in touch during offseason in the Delaware, Virginia, Maryland region it has grown to epic proportions. Group now has over 1k members and still growing. Check his group page out at DMV Redzone. Props we'll be swinging support your way this year, keep up the good work!
Our staff has been digging around the rumor mill lately and ran this story through the grind. The buzz going around lately is a Michael Myers vs Jason Voorhees movie in the works. Sadly early indications lean toward this being nothing more than a myth. Still it wouldn't be the first time we were wrong and we would love noting more than to see this project come to fruition.
Hey if memory serves us correct didn't these 2 knuckleheads square off back in 2004? Many self proclaimed producers aired what they thought the movie should be about. Here's one of our faves by mongarfilms. Honestly if I had to put money on this bout I would have to go with Jason. Hell he kicked Freddy's ass from Friday the 13th and until someone takes the belt from him he's still the champ in my book. Oh we were fortunate enough to find a user who posted entire Freddy vs Jason fight scene, enjoy!
80's mega band Guns N' Roses was at the top the food chain. Their debut album 'Appetite for Destruction' was a top seller and front men Axel Rose and Slash were plastered all over MTV, radio stations, T-shirts and numerous other outlets. I was in a cover band around this time and anytime we played one of their songs we brought the house down much like the original.
Somewhere down the line communications broke down and interests changed. Slash abruptly quit the band in 1996 and their relationship has been strained since. In a recent interview Slash allured it was because of the negativity going on for so long. Axel was less pleasant with his remarks and in 2010 told fans Slash was a “clueless, loud mouthed, arrogant cunt.” Rumors soared about the reason for the split and I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I could go on and on about rumors but that's not the purpose of this article, what is.... is the fact they have reconciled or at least on speaking terms now. Will a reunion tour be in the works? Dunno. A new album? Dunno. Will friendship stay intact? Again I dunno.
What I do know is these two icons are talking again and that's a win win for the music industry and fans alike.

'Madden Combine' is currently an idea in the think tank of our staff. I thought of the name to originally be used as a Facebook group page to recruit Madden players looking to find/ promote a league. Other groups like this already exist i.e. Madden Society, Madden Connected Careers, etc. and ours would be another in a long list of names. What sets us apart from others? Well first we are a 3 league conglomerate with 5 commissioners who oversee all 3; G4R Madden, True 32 Madden and Fantasy Madden 281. Our commish staff play in other lgs and each bring their vast experience and knowledge back to the combine to further enhance it. We're all fair and unbiased and no single commish has absolute power. Hell how many times have you left a lg or thought about leaving b/c commish either had it in for you or he simply didn't know how to run lg? That problem doesn't exist here.
Second, staff and members in all 3 lgs are proven and known in most communities. We have a low tolerance for BS and had to remove a few good people b/c of questionable actions, some of them were friends. Nothing kills a lg faster than showing favoritism to any certain person.
Last, this is a first for our staff and members (having all 3 lgs under one umbrella) and we will continue to make ground breaking strives to better enhance Madden for our followers. Each lg will operate under their own name but there are benefits to this 'umbrella' system. Rules will be similar in all 3 and once vetted in one you can freely go about joining the other 2 with no questions asked (space permitted).
Again idea is still in the think tank. If implemented it will get full support from our website not to mention various advertisements throughout the M16 yr. We're currently 3 lgs deep and number will increase before next edition drops. Whether we create this 'Madden Combine' or not support for all 3 lgs will not falter going forward. Kick it over for a few wks and send us your opinions. Don't be afraid to say if its a bad idea or not... many ideas are presented on a wkly basis and only a handful get through (site wise). Thanks for your time.
As an entertainment site G4R has to be on top of the latest trends. Fortunately we crossed paths with this up and coming artist and like what he's doing. We're friends with his producer 'Skuba Beatz' aka Steven Valles and love the work done thus far. This artist came out nearly the same time as our company and we would love nothing more than to grow with a fellow entrepreneur.
If you've been following us then chances are you've seen a cpl of his vids sprinkled across our site lately. I'm a former musician and can appreciate a dedicated artist. Anyway his latest track is featured on our G4R Music page and home page. Head on over and give em a 'like', ya never know these guys could be the next sensation. What better bragging rights than to say I knew em before they were big!? Haha Last 2 vids they dropped nearly hit 10k views in first week.
Here we go again, another female mega-star with a wardrobe malfunction while in the spotlight lol. Nicki was doing 'The PinkPrint' tour in Vancouver when it happened. Unfazed she did not let the incident interrupt her show and gracefully continued performance without a hitch. The 32-year-old rapper was later joined on stage by Meek Mill (ugh like we need to hear more about him) for a kiss and a live rendition of their collaboration "All eyes on you" off his "Dreams worth more than money". Nice touch.
Some may be too young to remember the last female mega-star wardrobe malfunction, Janet Jackson, while performing on stage in 2004 Super Bowl XXXVlll with Justin Timberlake during halftime show. Midway through performance Janet's right breast was partially exposed. Problem was... she was wearing a nipple ornament which led many to believe it was orchestrated. Media across the globe was not pleased and has led to the big game now having a taped delay as opposed to being aired live. I think comedian Chris Rock summed it best in a show shortly after saying... "Janet!... America don't want to see a 40yr old black titty [breast] on TV". I love Janet and Chris Rock but joke was funny lol.
You've read the title right people... 'Jail cells in Wal-Marts'. I still have to dig a little deeper into this story but early indications show that's the case in Midland, TX.
Has things deteriorated so bad that retailors have to input a penal system into their establishment? I grew up near this city as a teenager and did my fair share of mischief but never encountered anything like this. Most department stores have in house security and they can detain you for shoplifting til police arrive but this is too much.
Conspiracy theories have loomed on the horizon the Jade Helm project taking place in Texas is in preparation for total anarchy coming soon and Wal-Mart creating jail cells is another step in this process. For years many have stated the department store chain is merely a front for their alleged existing underground bunkers. For the newcomer it basically states military/ militia are doing exercises to prepare for the day of reckoning. This rumor can fall under the smoking gun category but take it for what its worth.
I have friends in this city and will try and verify if these stories are true. In the meantime you may want to think twice before shoplifting in this West Texas city. View story...
I've worked hard to bring site where its at in our 5yr history and one of the guidelines was 'keep family off pages'. I'm a strong advocate of keeping personal life separate from bizz but every now and then you come across a momentous occasion where you don't mind blurring the lines.
Case in point my sister is turning 50 this Saturday! Though not a big deal in the grand scheme of things it is to me. Most of my success was generated from my parents who encouraged me and my 2 siblings that anything was possible in life. For the times they weren't there my sister filled that role, I must admit I didn't care for it at times but glad now. Like most kids growing up we did a ton of bone-headed things and concocted crazy schemes we thought we could get away with. As we got older and parents weren't always around to check us, my brother and I had my sister to keep us in line. It wasn't until I matured that I truly realized how much she had our backs. If a schoolmate or neighborhood goon was giving us a hard time she was like a pit bull and stood up for us regardless the odds. Hell if that didn't work she could always call on our cousins Stacey and Terry... one went on to be a golden glove boxer, the other a marine. Yeah we were covered lol. I love my fam.
Anyway my Brother-in-law has went all out to provide her a lavish 80's themed party. Props Rodney Williams (meh for once I can overlook that you're a Cowboys fan lol). Family and relatives are flying in from across the country and it should be nice. I'm looking forward to donning a Jerri curl wig and MC Hammer parachute pants to help celebrate this event. The stories I could tell about everyone attending is endless so I'll keep it short by posting pics of the occasion. Hey what good is running a site if you can't plug the ones you love every now and then? Love you Nina, Happy 50th Birthday!
Seems to be a lot of buzz going around about a double moon slated for the wee hrs of August 27th, 2015. Some are saying this will be the last time 2 moons will be viewed simultaneously in our lifetime. Before you set up camp and prep for an all-nighter let me say this may be one of social media's biggest hoax. This is one of the 'sites' I visited.
Do I have proof one way or another this event will take place? No... but after doing further research (like any decent blogger should) the evidence points toward this being a monumental hoax. Meh.. far be it from me to ruin a good story with facts so I'll let it play out til the 27th. If nothing happens don't say I didn't warn you lol.
Wow where to begin with this story!? For the few in the continental US who aren't familiar with these guys let me introduce them. They go by a couple of names... Wild Out Wheelie Boys, 12 o'clock boys and another or two I'm sure I'm forgetting. Google or You-Tube any of these names and they will pop up instantly.
Let me set the tone. Inner city youths in Baltimore, MD have been ripping it up through the streets over last few decades on dirt bikes. As a result it's now illegal to ride one in B'more. Police chases have resulted in unfortunate accidents and they are no longer allowed to chase after them. Fast forward and we now have a stage set for 'anything goes'. In fact an independent movie was made last year chronicling a youth trying to make the cut called "12 O'clock Boys". It's really nice I watched it twice.
Underground clubs have been formed and its like a badge of honor to get accepted into one of them. During the summer months they roll out in groups and showcase their stunting abilities. Its become a way of life here and the locals are used to it. As a fellow biker I can relate.... to a point.
Once in awhile the gathering amasses such a large group that law enforcement has to be called in, such was the case here on WBAL TV 11 News. The city has offered to build dirt bike parks but I doubt it will fly. It's like putting a wild lion in a zoo. Yes he'll be able to roam and feed in a controlled environment but its not the same as free styling and getting the adrenaline rush as being outdoors.
A local Checkers in the suburbs of Baltimore is under fire for an employee wiping a bun on the floor before dressing it with mayonnaise and pickles. You often hear crazy stories like this but seldom see proof. The vid seems to speak for itself and shockingly it doesn't surprise me this type of action goes on behind the scenes. I have a relative I grew up with and he use to insist on going inside anytime we went to a fast food establishment. His reasoning was you never know what they are doing to your food. I blew it off as paranoia but can relate now. This story hits extremely close to home for me b/c I live in the Baltimore suburbs near a Checkers about 3 blocks away full of employees who resemble the ones in the vid. It's been awhile since I've eaten there but according to a Checkers spokesperson this incident happened awhile ago.
Details are still coming out but it doesn't look good for New York's starting QB. Personally I don't see how you call it a sucker punch if you're putting your finger in someone's face? By definition a sucker punch is if you were not facing the guy. Taunting a muscle bound teammate in training camp is definitely 'NOT' the way to start your season. Bad Geno!
Our 2015 Trump watch continues and he delivers again in the clutch. I never expected him to get past the whole 'immigration' comments but here we are with him leading all GOPs in the polls. Hell forget 'The Apprentice' just air weekly GOP debates for ratings. Last night during their first televised debate the world watched to see what he would say or who he would insult next. When asked by moderator Megyn Kelly why his harsh criticism toward women, calling them "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals." The Don simply answered, "Only Rosie O'Donnell." Talk about a shot to the chops!? Rosie responded via social media by saying "try explaining that 2 ur kids". Can't wait to hear what the Trumpster says next!
Hmm... an injustice has been done on G4R's end. We've been after Redneck Barbi(e) for over a year only to find out it was a doppleganger... yeah we went there look it up haha. Two different females with same name separated by an 'e' on the end. Her real fan page is Sippi Barbi.
Anyway we found the true Barbi and are happy to showcase her now and in the coming months. Her Soundcloud page is boss and one of our fave songs is Mudhole Zone. She's sans her production crew and is an independent artist now and we look forward to having an interview soon.
NWA hits the big screen... whoa! Pump your brakes and lets rewind for a minute all. For everyone 40+ we were fortunate enough to witness this evolution first hand. Twist open a 40 and enjoy this tale haha.
The 80's were a music evolution: Heavy Metal, Punk, Death of Disco, Power Ballads, Break Dancing, Trendy Boy Bands, Rap and of course...Gangsta Rap. Enter NWA...
Producers were no stranger to rap artists but never on this level. I remember artists who had radio airplay with words like 'sex, f#ck, n#gga, hoe' bleeped out for the good of listeners. It wasn't that we were mature enough to hear it but rather stations thought it was too edgy. If only they knew what was to come.
NWA blew the doors off rules and regulations and did it their way. Local Cali artists like Too Short, DJ Quick and others were already in this underground click and ahead of the curve. To experience this movement firsthand is more than words can say. I remember cruising with friends after NWA released their debut album. Hell we thought we were gods and on top of the world.... finally a group that understands how we feel!
Oh we're not even going to mention their first movie.... 'Boyz in the Hood' lol. How many of you felt like a boss after hearing the 'Shooting scene' theme?
I was going to say .... 'This guy just doesn't get it'... but after further probing I think he needs professional help. Aldon Smith's time with the San Francisco 49ers seems to be at an end. Smith was arrested for a hit and run, DUI and vandalism which led to the team ultimately letting him go.
Smith is no stranger to trouble, he was suspended for 9 games last season for violating leagues policy on personal conduct and substance abuse. He missed another 5 games in '13 after an earlier DUI arrest. He's sought treatment in the past but I feel more is needed before a drastic incident occurs. My heart goes out to this talented player.
Our latest artist is featured... check em out ppl Gwap Boys!
Ronda Rousey lays the smackdown on Correlia and retains her title in our eyes as the toughest female on the planet. Why her opponent would talk trash about her family in the days leading to bout is still a mystery to us. We feel sorry for the millions who paid a hefty tag to watch fight only to see it end in first round. Still we're glad our first lady of the octagon ring held it down and brought the pain.
