I’m Serious. It’s Not A Gimmick.

Matthew Essner often will tell me that I should read or watch certain things, and often I don’t, even when he forces stuff on me! But in his latest push, to read Cowboy Ninja Viking, I decided I was actually going to try, by taking the books to work and reading them during break. Slowly, […]

Tap, Tap, Tap, Tap, Isn’t This Musical? Tap.

I guess I should probably look at the ol’ list of topics I haven’t touched yet and write about one of them, huh? Let’s see. Ah, Groove Coaster. How have I not talked about that yet? Groove Coaster is a game by the people who made Space Invaders: Infinity Gene. I still haven’t gotten to […]

Close Readings, And Lack Thereof.

There is a fundamental difference between how I look at the world and how my students look at the world, I am finding. I assigned what I thought would be a super-easy and fun paper: play some games, including some on a list I gave you of free online games if you don’t already have […]

Withholding, Building a Barrier

Debated whether or not to write about this because I feel like it makes me an asshole. But whatever. I can trust you, right blog? You understand me, right? So I’m going to talk this out, and we’ll see where it goes. If you don’t like me being extremely personal and diary-like, this is not […]

Also, I Guess I Should Use Hot Keys.

Today, Jonathan came over and was like “Seriously, boot up LoL right now, and try Dominion.” That’s what happened. He coached, and I played, and I died a lot. I was really happy when they announced Dominion. I mean, I like League of Legends quite a bit. I’ve put a lot of time into it […]

The Website I Will Likely Use To Watch Ponies Later Today

I am kind of in a lot of pain right now! I do not know why, but I hope it will pass. In any case, I am just going to write a little tonight and get back to watching shit with Brer on Synchtube. But what is Synchtube, you don’t actually ask but I will […]

It’s The Second Tube That Is My Undoing

Let me tell you about Shockers. I purchased Shockers as part of a mix of candy from an expensive movie theater machine, and it reminded me that Shockers are pretty good, though I rarely have had them. I like sour things, and they were basically Chewy Spree with a sour oomph, which is right down […]

Layers And Things Of Importance, Hidden Somewhere.

I’m writing this while my students take a test! While I can’t see my list of blog topics, I know one SUPER OLD ONE on the list is The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, so let’s see if I can’t make a blog post out of that while I’m here. Many of the tabletop RPGs that […]

Rapid Fire Ramblings: Blogging, FA Favorites, House Update, Ponies

I feel like I’m having problems finding things to write about lately! I’ve been consuming less content because I’ve been working so much, and my current game conquest I shouldn’t talk about, because the whole point of me playing it is to write an article about it! (Dun dun dunnnnn!) More and more, I find […]
