Unwinding the Mind: Writer's Block Sucks, These Games Don't

You know what I always have trouble doing? I have trouble starting up writing projects. It could be an essay that�s due the next day, a story that I�ll never write, or even a simple blog. No matter the material, I�m always caught with writer�s block before any writing even begins! Once I do find a way to get started, however, I just keep going and going and eventually find myself at the end of my writing. Keeping that in my mind encourages me to fight through my writer�s block, so I�m able to knock it out of the park.

Anyways, let�s pick up where we left off.

Still on my Sci-Fi fix thanks to Firefly, I decided to give Battlestar: Galactica a try. This show is awesome, plain and simple. The space combat action is some of the best stuff I�ve seen in a television show. The drama raises more and more each episode. Also, the entire cast of characters feels fleshed out and worth investing your time in, even the bad guys. Not to mention, Tricia Helfer is so damn sexy to me.

What really draws me into the show, however, is the premise of the story. Humanity is down to less than 50,000 people after an attack on their home planet, Caprica, by a robot force humanity created called the Cylons. Everyone that�s left alive is traveling the galaxy, with the military, in search for Earth in order to rebuild their civilization.

Even though this show is fictional, it�s definitely presented in a realistic way that has me constantly thinking, what if this were to really happen?

BSG has become one of my new favorite shows in a while and I�d be a fool not to recommend it to others.

It looks like the format of this blog is, talk about a few games, recommend them, and then recommend a show on Netflix. I don�t necessarily want the format of this blog to be like this all the time, but that�s pretty much how I�ve been spending most of my free time for the past few weeks.

Hopefully I�ll have more interesting or insightful things to talk about in future blogs, especially since the semester just started back up. I�ll be out in the wild more, and we all know all the interesting things worth talking about happens out in the world.

Anyways, thanks for reading!

About SteezyXLone of us since 12:03 PM on 03.26.2008

HELLO there!

The name's James and I'm 24. I reside in the beautiful Bay Area in California. I've been gaming for as long as I can remember. Being a 90's kid, I of course grew up playing the Sega Genesis and NES being accompanied by Sonic The Hedgehog and the old school Mario Bros. I had so many games for my NES up until my NES broke and my dad decided to give the games away since I was busy occupying my new SNES. From there I pretty much owned any system that Nintendo made and enjoyed my childhood as a natural born gamer.

I now own all three consoles and try to be open-minded when playing various video games. Expect to see me write about my experiences with video games on this here blog!
