So uh... When is it exactly that Evangelion becomes the best thing ever?


 
 
 

Hit the Best Pastries Known to Sam again, and was so struck... I doubled up! Strawberry eclair; almonds, whipped cream, custard. A favorite. Not big on chocolate, but that looked too pretty to pass up! Mousse, ganache, and I think a little fudge.


 
 
 

Okay, who’s read House of Leaves? I’m less than halfway through it but I think this might be a top ten favorite book for me. I have never before read a book the way I’m reading this.


 
 
 

Shady? Maybe. But worth the potential PayPal-refund hassle for a good deal!


 
 
 
 

Started Evangelion the other day and keep thinking about this bit of animation. Anime tropes have a way of dissatisfying me but I see why people like it already. I also realize how goddamn amped I am for Daemon x Machina.


 
 
 
 
 

Apricot-pistachio tart from my favorite bakery! Food is, uh, pretty great.


 
 
 
 
 

I found a PS3 on my run this morning. Who said exercise was pointless!


 
 
 
 

Not only did I order a complete copy of RIVAL SCHOOLS SHIT CAN’T WAIT for PS1, but I went for a drive to neighboring Connecticut to pick THIS UP FROM GAMESTOP YEAH. Now to motivate myself to set up my Wii U again!


 
 
 
 

I can get only the disc, only the first disc (the base game) for like $18 on eBay... Worth it? (Update!) Drove a distance to a nice retro game shop. No Rival Schools, but I made $80 off of Xbox 360 games collecting dust! The power is in my hands!


 
 
 
 
 
 

Did a Cuphead for my friend’s birthday card, figuring anything more complicated would tear my brain.


 
 
 

WHAT THE FUCK YOU NEED TO GRIND FOR MONEY FOR THE FINAL BOSS IN ZIP LASH CHIBI-ROBO WHY... THIS GAME BLOWS (Update) Woke up early, grinded coins, and beat the game. Now to bury the cartridge and remember Chibi for the hero he was, not the shadow he became

 
 
 

Wow so Iceborne looks really awesome! So awesome that I’m feeling like getting back into Monster Hunter. But Capcom, buddy...


 
 
 
 
 

Every turtle I stomp on in Downwell just makes me feel horrible.

Lately Ive been too busy adulting for games or gamedev, but yesterday morning I was miraculously able to beat TWO games! Oceanhorn: it is like topdown Zelda but worse, still pretty fun! Lovely Planet 2:incredibly fun and cute, better than the original
