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.

Jack Offson rapes NIU
February 16, 2008

By now, most of you have probably heard about the shooting at Northern Illinois University. Leave it to everyone's favorite, hack lawyer to steal the limelight and twist the tragedy to suit his own agenda. He was last seen on Fox News, posing as an expert on school shootings. Seriously, how sick is that?

Never mind that no one asked him about games, that no one said if Mr. Kazmierczak (shooter) played, and that he had brief military training.


Heath Ledger is dead
January 22, 2008

This is not a lame pun, or a sick joke. Heath Ledger was found dead in an apartment this afternoon, with sleeping pills strewn about the room.

Because you can't collect binary
January 18, 2008

A few weeks ago, Daff got me one of the best Christmas presents a guy like me could ask for. While I got some very cool stuff, like the ninja-black Wage from Ugly Dolls, and Gamer Theory by McKenzie Wark, he gave me his Nex! Coincidentally, he tossed in Karnov and Legendary Wings. You sir, have serious psychic talents. Legendary Wings was my favorite game for many years.

Just some random things
January 10, 2008

I've been reviewing a number of DS games lately, with another coming up quickly, which prompted HonestGamer to say, "People are going to start thinking you like the DS or something!" I'm guessing that was sarcastic, because out of 11 DS games reviewed, I thoroughly enjoyed 1 of them. That's a 10-1 record, and although I won't spoil it, I'm about to go 11-1.

So here is a belated New Year's resolution. I will review more DS games that I actually like, so as not to be such a cranky masochist. Looking at my shelf, I could do Geo Wars and Contra 4. Those are both excellent, for the scant time I've had to play them since Christmas (i.e. five minutes each). I could even take on Portrait of Ruin. Who cares if it's been done? I like my DS and don't want people thinking otherwise.

It's the little things in life.
January 05, 2008

We have a back room at work where we have overstock DVDs and the bathroom. Assuming you can read the big red sign on the white door, it's pretty easy to tell that it's for employees only. That doesn't stop some people from trying though. My coworkers and I heard the door's trademark squeak and looked around to realize that all employees were accounted for. Someone was back there. I stomped my way over, slammed the door open, and threw on my hardest pose, ready to get hit with a bumrush. Instead, I caught some guy standing at the toilet with his junk hanging out.

I may have a crappy retail job, but at least it's always interesting.


Merry Christmas everyone

Hey Daff
December 23, 2007

I can't remember which Blu-ray movies you had and which ones you wanted me to watch out for. Sorry, but by the time I remembered, 300 had sold.
