Hey y'all, its been a hot minute. 
While I'm still a super Dreamcast stud (confirm this with OBAMA), I also have a pretty good PC right now. Add me on Steam username: bbats.  Orgin (BF4 only): bbats1

I made this song last year for a Holiday community album that didn't quite get off the ground, but like a fine wine this aged with grace. So here's a parody of My Humps by The Black Eyed Peas. Please enjoy My Lovely Lumps of Coal.

Merry holidaze.

Sometimes I see some cblogs and I see some sweet sweet pictures in the personal info bar and man I get so so jealous. I seethe sometimes even. Like that Gobun character, he's got some sweet drawing. And M Randy Dixon. Dang, I'm jealous. So now its time to bribe y'all.

So I bought the Indie Royale May Hurray Bundle way back in May. I picked it up pretty much for Dungeon Defenders (a very nice game). There are 4 other games in the bundle that just don't look like my cup of tea. I don't know, puzzley stuff, music rythm stuff, whatever. They look cool, but I'd play them for about 4 minutes and then never again. So I thought, "Hey, give these good games away to the people, and squeeze them into drawing or singing or writing poems about you."

Alex, you son of a bitch. You've done it again.

The games are:
-Containment: The Zombie Puzzler
-Data Jammers: FastForward
-Brainpipe - A Plunge to Unhumanity
-Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space
and a soundtracks to:
-Voodoo Interface & Temperal Logic Grid Blues

They all run on PC, Mac, or Linux and the top three have Steam keys too.

Wow, your thinking ok ok wow wow ok sweetness. Yep. And guess what, super easy contest time.
You can win by either:
-Drawing a picture of me.
-writing a song about me.
-writing a poem about me.
-Taking a nude photo and emailing it to M Randy Dixon. (Note: Emailing M Randy will not result in any games, just moral victories.)


Post it in the comments below, and i'll make an announcement blog in ten days (10/14/12) to reveal the winners.

Good luck people, and may rock and roll carry you to victory.
(MS Paint is more than welcome!)

So I'm not buying Borderlands 2 today. A little too much money and I'm going on vacation tomorrow. HOWEVER, in the future I do plan on picking it up and in that time I call DIBS on that cutie pie of my eye GAGIE! I love necromancer characters and I think this is a clever twist to fit that playstyle into BL2. So there.
I love you.

Pigtails



I've always wanted to wear pigtails.


Robots



I have no mechanical prowess. I wasn't sure how to change my rear blinker on my Chevy Aveo so I brought it to the dealer (Turns out you cannot take off the back light cover by yourself without doing some major trunk damage, I'M SMART THEN!) Therefore, I live vicariously through her.

KITTENS!



Just in case she gets cute kitten DLC.

DESPERATE PLEA FOR ATTENTION



Please love me Dtoid.

Those are the reasons why I love pasta.

Can't go to PAX but want to see the show floor or you just can't wait! Well, you're in luck! I snuck in and got the goods, including game announcements! Check it out!

PAX PREVIEW!!!


(question: When did they get rid of the embedded video stuff? Am I just blind now?)










After some helpful insight on my part, a flagrant abuse of power is at hand.

Samit Sarkar is gone. He's off hanging out with busty people drinking Mai Thai's (1/2 oz Orgeat, 3/4 oz Orange Curaçao, 1 oz lime juice, 1.5-2 oz Dark Rum depending on booziness desired. Shake with crushed ice, dump in glass, garnish with mint) on a beach with piles of money that he's using to make papercraft of Derek Jeter. He's gonna be missed. Especially his editorial eye.

Recently, there was a slight but ever so embarrassing GRAMMATICAL ERROR in an post by the most beloved man of the masses M. Randy Dixon. Hey it happens, you know? Leave the man alone, please don't tweet his shaming remarks at him @mRandyDixon

Everyone needs help. It seems my super duper form of helping a buddy out was...unwanted.



Yeah, thats right, PUNISHED. That's like being a fit, muscular, young, and quite handsome man helping a feeble, weak, smelly old lady across the street and getting SLAPPED IN THE GOOD LOOKING FACE FOR IT!!! Maybe I shouldn't have interfered. Maybe I hurt his pride. Maybe it's because I'm so dominating at TF2. Maybe I should apologize. But does a cheetah apologize for being fast?

M Randy didn't even show up he was so scarred of my Heavy prowess.

So I've been punished...and now Alex Barbatsis, Homecoming candidate, is now Alex Butthead, homecoming candidate.

Now, what does this mean for you? Farts. It means farts.

I pondered, "what do buttheads do?" They fart. They fart, they butt burp,they poot, they bring the thunder from down under, they release the (butt) kraken.

I am now a butthead, it is in my nature to toot. My comments will reflect that. Most likely with a simple "toot." Maybe I might express an opinion. Maybe not. It won't reflect on the quality of the blog. It will merely be my nature.

Welcome to Butthead Dome.

Toot.
