Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

Ebay shenanigans
March 12, 2007

Nothing but losses on Ebay today.

JVC X-eye - It's a Genesis and Sega CD in one. I've been wanting one of these for a year now. The shipping cost was pretty outrageous, so I had to cut myself off with a losing bid of $45.

Lords of Thunder (Sega CD) - Would have been cool to have, but I wouldn't have anything to play it on anyway.

Versus Mode: Round 4 is open, and if you don't like the game, there is something seriously wrong with you. From the incomparable Kenta Cho, here is Torus Trooper.

Even if you haven't been playing for the previous rounds, you're more than welcome to join. In fact, I demand it. Quit wussing out or I'll remove your manhood with my rockets.

With the RIAA trying to crack down on music piracy, I get to hear 50+ year old men calling in to radio talk shows, and chatting about "this generation" in the aisles at Best Buy. Yesterday, one guy was looking for a Patty Griffin CD, but it was missing from the shelf. His friend chimed in with something to the effect of, "It's not like this kid even knows who she is. He probably doesn't even pay for his music." I looked at him, thinking, I just want to punch you in the neck. Just because I'm not past my prime doesn't mean that I don't know jack about music. I can probably name more artists than there are miles on your 25-mph-driving Cadillac. Can you spell Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's name off the top of your head. I can. Can you name even one song from Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Outkast, or C

Goodbye Azeroth
March 04, 2007

I pulled the plug on World of Warcraft this morning. I sold my gear, sent the money to some friends, cancelled my subscription, and even deleted my characters so there is no chance for me to go back again.

WOW is a very good game, but I was not having fun anymore. I could play for hours and hours without excitement. It felt more like routine than anything else. I've been getting more enjoyment out of going for high scores on free games, or popping in Guitar Hero for a few songs.

I'm in
February 27, 2007

I just got accepted back into the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee for a second undergraduate degree in Journalism. I already have a degree in Film Studies, but that hasn't gotten me anywhere. Potential employers keep asking what Film Studies is. Not a good sign when you're applying for a job. For the past two years I have been saying that I wouldn't go back to school because of the costs involved. I changed my mind. I'm not getting anywhere at the moment, so I might as well get something out of that time.
