Month: January 2013

  • What I’ve Been Doing 28 Jan 2013 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    Life is awesome. I saw a fantastic rendition of Hairspray at the BSO and I had a fun weekend. Things don’t get much better. Movies Hairspray – Put this on while I was falling asleep. Fun movie. TV Justified – Y’all who think this is a hick show or haven’t given this show a chance […]

  • What I’ve Been Doing 23 Jan 2013 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    Wow guys, this is pretty late, huh? Sorry bout that! Movies Silver Linings Playbook – It may be the most accessible Oscar nominee to watch, but that doesn’t preclude it from being just astonishingly well acted. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper turned in fantastic performances. I have a hard time imagining a person who would […]

  • What I’ve Been Doing 14 Jan 2013 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    This past weekend was a haze of parties and Virtue’s Last Reward. The good news is that I beat the game and had fun at all the parties, but the bad news is zzzzzzzz… Movies Nope! TV Justified – So happy to have this show back. Raylan is such a badass. Loved the shot to […]

  • February: Scarlett [Fukubukuro 2012]

    It happened sooner than we all expected, but February marked the birth of my beautiful young niece, Scarlett. Her birth was not without incident or challenge, but I can happily say that she’s doing marvelously now and she’s growing faster than I can even really wrap my head around. That’s the scary thing about kids […]

  • Music of 2012 [F]

    The biggest change in 2012 for me was the rise of Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Sure, I still bought plenty of music from Amazon or Google, but an increasing amount of the stuff I picked up came from the individual himself. I mean, why would I expect the Fez soundtrack to occupy a spot in Amazon’s […]

  • Celebrities Read Mean Tweets Part 3! [ER]

    This is totally my favorite Jimmy Kimmel segment. Love watching the reactions. I wonder if they come in with pre-selected tweets or if Kimmel’s crew supplies it for that first reaction.

  • Anamanaguchi’s New Video “Meow” [F]

    Do you like Anamanaguchi? No? Well it’s not your blog.

  • What I’ve Been Doing 7 Jan 2013 [FB/IB/BT/F/GO]

    I finished 999 last week and I thought, “Should I wait a bit before picking up Zero Escape?” Then I ordered it and got it on Friday. Man, I’ve spent something like 10 hours on it already. I’m loving all the new thought experiments, the prisoner’s dilemma, and the quantum aspects of the story Movies […]

  • January: New Car [Fukubukuro 2012]

    It’s one of those rites of passage in growing up, isn’t it? Your first car purchased entirely on your own with zero parental involvement. Plenty of kids are forced to hit that milestone in their teens, but I was lucky enough to get old Murray (as I called my old, grey ‘99 Toyota Corolla) for […]

  • Video Games of 2012 [GO]

    Knock on wood, you guys, but I managed to get through 2012 without having all my video games stolen from my house while I was sleeping [EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s 2013 now, you dummy. You don’t need to knock on wood]. Should that even be an achievement? 2012 seems to be a shift in the status […]
