I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I'm getting fat. My waist is now up to 34" and I probably weigh something like 155 or 160. When I was in high school, I weighed more like 145 and I had a 30" waist most of that time. So yeah, I'm getting fat.
I decided to do something about it, so I went down to our apartment complex weight room. There's not a whole lot of equipment there, just some of the usual stuff where you sit in a bench and push your arms together to life weights or whatever. There's also a Nordic skiier machine.
I just found this article interesting, so I had to share:
And in an effort to make this entry more worthwhile, I shall now discuss random thoughts that have been going through my head. Namely, why can't people wait 3 seconds and live a safer life?
You know you've always wanted to see Natalie Portman rap, and now you can:
So, tonight I picked up a PSP. It'll make things tight for awhile, but I'm happy to have one again. It's as exciting the second time around as it was the first. Maybe this time I'll actually get a game for it, though yet again I was able to afford the system (barely) and not any games. Deja vu, anyone?
I still want quite a few games that have been released this generation, or that will be released by the time it ends. My former list, several posts down, has shortened considerably in the past few weeks, so here's a new one. Yeah, this entry is mostly for my use. Sue me!
Game Boy Advance
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Tales of Phantasia
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Mega Man X: Command Mission
Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Kirby: Canvas Curse
Mario & Luigi 2
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Yoshi's Touch & Go
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana 2
I generally try not to encourage such things, but in this case I had to give it a shot. If you visit my blog now, you'll hear a special greeting message. Too cool!
I'd been hearing about Sufjan Stevens from Genj, and tonight I decided it was time to check out his stuff on iTunes. I assumed there would be some of his stuff available, and I was right.
After listening to it, I've decided that Genj is not insane. Or at least, he's not so insane as I once thought. In fact, I've now ordered the album from Barnes & Noble because it seems like the sort of thing I'd like to listen to while writing or whatever. Really pretty stuff with interesting lyrics and nice melodies. I can't wait for it to show up so I can listen through the whole thing.
This is probably going to tick off Genj, but he reminds me of a male version of Tori Amos (who I also like). Anyway, that's my one post about music for the year...
