Reflections on Rukus

The Obama-era queer kids are a different make and model from the Bush-era ones. That’s the excuse I like to give myself when I try and measure up to the folks a few years younger. They’ve a certain hope and confidence that I can’t hel...


About to post blog about furry shit. Website says "Are you human?" Well fuck...


Falling Back Into Things

With every new gimmicky fast food creation, I find myself flocking to the drive thru. I enjoy each new thing they realize they can replace with fried chicken. Though everything from those places tastes like the same thing: Rome before the...


One week after the Furry convention I find myself playing A Night in the Woods. This feels like a reverse slippery slope.


This year I intend to get into the spirit of the season by continually eating Christmas Cookies until I am jolly.


On Shoving it Down People's Throats

There’s an episode of Ally McBeal’s first season. It involved a Ally getting a transgender off a prostitution charge. And a job at the law firm. I was excited for a moment, looking up the actor who played the character. Only to find ou...


One of these days I'll write a blog that's not mildly depressing. Or I may die tomorrow on my way to work. Both are possible outcomes.


Comments on Community

I suppose I’ve always been a bit of a loner. I’ve had a few friends that were close. Comrades in arms and humor. But as time has passed, there’s a handful that have stuck around. And a smaller handful that I’ve let stay. I’ve purg...


Lifehack: Save money on games by making Bubsy your custom character on Sonic Forces


Schadenfreude Salesmanship

I’ve decided to buy Fortnite. When I get paid tomorrow I’m going to buy it. And it will be wonderful. I only played one round, and while I do enjoy it, and find the art style to be breath of air to my usual pixel faire; it is a schadenf...


I like to write existential bathroom graffiti. "You'll never get these moments of your life back"


Death Drama

I got drunk about a week and a half ago, banged out a rather heartfelt smattering of words. And I’m not sure if I made it live on this site or not. I hope not. Because that will make this version a bit more awkward. A friend of mine is s...

Somme Like it Hot: Youtube and World War 1

You know who I have a crush on? Indy Neidell. He has his own steam group of loyal followers. He is the perfect combination of blonde, Houston Astros fan, and historian. Also he worked closely to develop the historical indexes and medals in ...


Team Fortress 2 turns 10 today. Here's to 2 years of gameplay innovation, and 8 years of hats.


The perfect game to celebrate Orctober

So, second blog on here. There’s something you should know about me. First, I am a gay dude. Second, I am the exact kind of gay dude who the idea of Orctober appeals to. My biggest regret about getting fired at Blizzard, is that I lost ou...


Wiki Worries

Having recently played 2064: Read Only Memories, I find myself disappointed in the internet. Not just because there’s no trace of any lewd fanart of that one character I flirted with… make that my favorite character I flirted with. As I...


About The Baked Potatoone of us since 5:52 AM on 07.28.2013

Generic Texan gay gaming nerd in his late 20's, sometimes funny, kind of an asshole. Definitely a recluse.

Spent some time working support for video game companies.
Got a few fancy books and plastic statues in lieu of a living wage.
Spent a little less time trying to write for sites. One isn't around anymore, the other dropped me for a bad review.

And to think all this started with Disney DOS games when I was 4.
