I am going to cash in some Destructoid cred here and write not only a short blog but also one that has nothing to do with video games.  You will forgive me but in my excitement I can't contain myself.     ...

Hello, I'm Occams. Ask me a Question

I have enjoyed the past Ask Me Anything blogs posted by good and kindly folks.  So I would like to embrace this moment and put it to you, fair reader, to ask me a question.  It can be about anything, video game related or not.  I am an open book.  An open book with pages stuck together and coffee ring stains on the cover.  So fire away.  I am here for you.

Occam Thoughts: Podcasts

I have found myself seeking some accompaniment when I am playing video games.  I used to listen to albums and audio books but lately the name of the game has been podcasts.  There is nothing more pleasant than facing the hord...

Goodbye Robin

I just wanted to take a brief moment to say goodbye to a man who taught me how to laugh and the your eccentricities are a strength rather than a weakness. Yesterday, as I'm sure most of you know Robin Williams killed himself....

Occam Thoughts: Youtube

So let’s see.  It’s been a while since I wrote one of these. What’s new with me?  I’ve been engaging in all kinds of media lately.  Side note: That could be a really fancy way of saying looking at porn.  I’ve been playing...

So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?  I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first and say "hi", before giving me ...

10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

1.  If you're a male, you're wrong.  One thing I've learned from gaming media in recent years is that being a woman makes me always right.  Apparently I lack "privilege" even though I'm a middle class white woman with a n...

Occam Thoughts: Summons

Summons in role playing games.  There is something so wonderfully appealing about calling forth a terrible monster to do your dirty work for you in an RPG. Most of us can recall with fond remembrance and a glint of nostalgia ...

The invisibility of the older woman...

I'm currently 51 and frankly, when I hit 50... shit happened.  I stopped dying my hair only to find out that I no longer had dark brown hair, but instead when the sun hits my locks, you could be blinded from the s...

Occam Thoughts: Prints (NVGR)

Art.  I love art.  Art ART ARRRRT!  Fun to say, fun to collect.  So as a creature who relies almost solely on visual memory and who works in a gallery, its no big shock that my collecting proclivities have led me to start pur...

No means no... but sometimes it has to be said out loud.

This started as a response to Glowbear's excellent blog recapping some recent events at E3, but it grew far too long, and I've never been concise... so I'll put my huge ramble here in my own blog, but please read her blog FIR...

More questions than answers...

As with many console launches in the past, this year I've come away with more questions than answers.  I'm usually a Sony fangirl, but for the next generation of game consoles, I'm still undecided between the Xbox One and t...
