We in the last few days of January.  Winter will be over in less than eight weeks.  The dark days of winter are slowly, but surely, coming near to an end.

To be honest, there’s been on thing on my mind I’ve had this month.  All I could think of is that January was… warm.  As in, REALLY warm.

Just a few weekends ago, it was 70 degrees outside the whole day.  I roamed around Salem with just a t-shirt, pants, and shoes.  A t-shirt and pants… in the middle of JANUARY, when it was 70 degrees outside.

Now there were some cold days here and there.  But still, the temperatures kept climbing back up later on.  To be honest, I can’t even remember a time it was below 0 degrees Fahrenheit the whole day.

But this warmer-than-average January isn’t just happening in Boston.  Areas around the northern part of the hemisphere experienced warmer weather this month.  Northeastern cities like Pittsburgh and Syracuse had some of the warmest days ever.  Norway even recorded its warmest day ever in January at 19c.

Two days until February and this whole month of January has been warmer than usual.  What does this mean for the next few weeks of winter?  Will February continue to be warmer?  Or will a shocking cold front come our way?

Either way, best thing to do is just go outside and enjoy the warmer weather in January while you can.

2020 will be the start of a whole new year (and DECADE) of memes.  It’s crazy to think that there are even more memes to discover within the realm of the internet.  I’m still vastly entertained by the ones featuring Baby Yoda and Woman Yelling at a Cat.

But like always, there is a new meme making its shocking splash across social media.  Interestingly enough, the meme was kicked off by a famous country singer.  I’m talking about none other than the LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder meme.

The LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder meme was created by Dolly Parton.  Dolly Parton featured four different pictures of herself with the tagline ‘Get you a woman who can do it all 😉).  Each picture was distinctly different based on the type of social media.  LinkedIn would show a more professional side while Tinder would show a more passionate version.

Hours later, the meme took off like wildfire.  Audiences worldwide posted their own four pictures for their LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder meme.  Even celebrities took to social media to use their own version of Dolly Parton’s idea.  Some hit right on the nose while others put their own unique flair to it.

Alas, one of the first memes of 2020 was born.  Dolly Parton started the LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder meme, sparking a worldwide phenomenon of people showing off various sides of themselves.  People had their own business side while also showing their sexier self as well.

It’s like what Dolly Parton says – Get you a woman who can do it all.

When it comes to swanky stoner events, you can expect Snoop Dogg to be making an appearance.  Snoop Dogg has been a major player in the cannabis industry for years.  He launched a digital media business focused on cannabis (Merry Jane), invested in weed delivery startup Eaze, and even launched his own line of cannabis products.

Just last Monday, Snoop Dogg played at the House of Blues in Boston.  But before he went back to California, he made a pit stop in Uxbridge to visit a dispensary known as Caroline’s Cannabis.

Snoop Dogg went to Caroline’s Cannabis for a meet and greet event.  Lots of fans gathered around by 4 PM to visit Snoop Dogg (and buy some cannabis products as well).  Some of hit songs played through the speakers while rapping through some of the lyrics.

The whole thing made for great publicity here in Massachusetts.  Snoop Dogg is one of the biggest players in the cannabis business.  The cannabis industry has grown so much in Massachusetts to the point that celebrities from the west coast are heading here to try some products while on the east coast.

Cannabis is spreading all throughout the country.  Celebrities like Snoop Dogg are smoking some of the good grass while visiting Massachusetts (#Grassachusetts).  It is this kind of mainstream publicity that will certainly put Massachusetts on the map.

There are other new characters entering the ring, but the game play is still the same.  More blood is being shed and the fatalities are just as brutal as ever.  Each and every fighter comes with their own unique special moves to take down your opponent.

And this year, one colorful character will be joining in on the Kombat Pack 1.  Entering the Mortal Kombat universe comes… The Joker.

The Joker will be joining the fighters this year.  He comes with his own quirky special moves, making for some epic fatalities.  Its these moves that will surely uppercut his opponents to their death.  His fatalities come with special props including a jack-in-the-box, a puppet, knives, a cane, and some guns.

Those props, as well as the creepy performances, make for one brutal character in Mortal Kombatl 11.  The Joker will be released among the other characters such as Sindel, Nightwolf, Spawn, The Terminator, and Shang Tsung.  You can get the downloadable content when it comes out this month.

This makes for amazing publicity stories for both Mortal Kombat and The Joker.  The Joker may have come from a different franchise, but he is a gritty and scary villain who’s always after Batman.  He’s crazy enough to become a guest fighter in Mortal Kombat 11.  While the game was released almost a year ago, the Kombat Pack 1 will generate more buzz around the audiences.

With that, The Joker coming to Mortal Kombat 11 will be no laughing matter.  The Joker comes with some comical, yet gruesome fatalities that will knock out every one of his opponents.
