Wear it like you mean it.

So, on my way home from interning, I saw a guy in front of Little Caesars wearing a Little Caesars’ mascot costume. It was actually a pretty good costume. He even had a spear prop with a little pizza stuck on it. But still, it was kind of weird to see. This begs the important […]

That Whole “Present Buying Checklist” Thing Starts.

What the fuck am I getting people for Chrissymas? I mean, I guess, here’s the checklist I always do. Jonathan: Half-Check (I got an idea already, but who knows) Mom: No Check Dad: No Check Grandma: No Check Grandpa: Half-Check (Have a plan, just have to pick it up) Brer: No Check (Have some possible […]

Taking out the second of a four-pack of gods…

So I finally got around to playing through Penny Arcade: On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 2. The experience was significantly enjoyable. The original game has one major conceptual problem and one stupid problem that bothers me. Surprisingly, for this episode, they fixed the major issue and not the stupid problem. The major problem […]

Obligatory “Have a Nice Thanksgiving” Post

So, it’s Turkey Day. The day when we celebrate the ability to get three strikes in three consecutive frames… No, wait… It’s a wonderful family-based day where we eat too much food and don’t have to go to work or school. Sweetness. I’m actually sort of looking forward to a day with the parents, especially […]

Hey, did you notice it’s cold?

So it’s finally cold enough to get out my Slanket. Is that good? That’s probably good. I like a warm blanket, and dammit, this has sleeves. AWESOME SLEEVES. At Kohl’s, though, there are off-brand Slankets! For much cheaper than I paid! OH NO! Half price! Are they as good? I don’t know. It’s fucking warm […]

Poetry Reading ‘O8 Debriefing

Years ago at this point, I went to a Journey reading. I read poetry that nowadays would make me cringe. Yesterday, I attempted to fix that by standing up and reading at a new Journey Reading experience. How did it go? Alright, I thought. I didn’t make any reading errors, perse. Got some chuckles from […]

Domino Master on Xbox Live Arcade: Who Knew?

I was testing out the NXE’s new “start downloads from your PC” feature when I noticed the existence of Domnio Master, the ultimate online domino experience. When did this come out? I had to try the demo. Why? Well, two reasons. One, Uno on XBLA is hella fun, really. Not having played any with Talking […]

Zombie Apocalyse: Not As Fun When Silent

So, Left 4 Dead is a lot less fun when you can’t communicate. I mean, I knew this already. Talking with friends while doing something? Almost always improves a gaming experience. Hell, friends improve almost any activity, do they not? Even like, you know, sex with friends is better than sex with strangers. Maybe. I […]

I blog alone. Except when I blog with Renaldo. Which is all the time.

So it looked like I was going to have to jump into Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People Episode 4… you know, I’m done with references. Sorry. But seriously, Dangeresque 3 did not fail to deliver. It was pretty completely great. They went the extra mile to make the episode actually look like a […]

Stories are not necessarily chronological.

So my previously mentioned poem sequence keeps on evolving, though I think it’s to its final form. It turns out what I really wanted to write was a poem sequence following a couple, first with the man of this couple coming to terms with their relationship, and then briefly showing the woman’s side of things […]
