Rebirth is at the heart of the Promethian creed - and so it is in Christianity! Happy Easter!


 
 
 

Maaaaaan, I am looking forward to my days off on Tuesday and Wednesday. I am going to be such a trash person, all day. Eating taco bell, drinking soda, and playing games. I can't wait! One twelve hour shift and one eight hour shift to go!

 
 
 

Been watching some old presidential debates. Kennedy has such poise, whilst Nixon seems incredibly nervous the entire time. Well, let's just say that history has a funny way of expressing itself.



 
 
 
 

Sean Bean seems like a delightful person. This is a great interview!



 
 
 

Saw Book of Mormon live earlier tonight. Man, that shit was hilarious, and with great music to boot!

 
 
 

Hey, who wants to give me about a half million Ental loan for this? I'll pay ya back. Honest.


 
 
 

Posted without context because the context makes it so much worse.


 
 
 

In my defense, she was on sale.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BL6KYF5


 
 
 

Chain of Memories Update: On floor 8 now. Gameplay is eh. Story feels like a soulless attempt at trying to get Nintendo newcomer money while also appealing to those that played KH1. 'I-it's not all the same we swear!'

 
 
 

The Indominus Rex is seems like a Mary Sue of a murderous dinosaur. Also, the Gotham episode "Let Them Eat Pie" is the most disturbing TV episode I've seen in a long time.

 
 
 

Watched 'Us'. It was entertaining and funny. Not scary, and a bit campy at times. But I still loved the story and the ending was not something I was expecting. Good movie.

 
 
 

This was my first car. Like my actual first car. Still running many, many moons later and gifted to someone who needed it. I kept the chrome skull shifter knob though.


 
 
 

Kotaku gets called out for the garbage pail articles it publishes


 
 
 

This screen's a bit outdated, but I'm feeling too lazy to update it tonight. I think Chapter 2 and 7 are very close ties for my favorites in gameplay, including their B-sides!


 
 
 

In a span of a single day, I received more good news and finished my largest article yet (they keep getting bigger!). Will have the former announced in the near-future and the latter published next month.

 
 
 
 

Vxxy and I are set to sling spells at each other in the next round of the BlondeBass Super Extravagant Magic Spectacular. Watch at twitch.tv/venturecrow. EDIT: Because it was short gonna stream Siege with Limo and a drunk Dere. Probably monologue for Gus.

 
 
 

Well, I tried to fix my TV the same way I "fixed" PS4, which is to say, I let it rest for a day, tried to turn it on again and it magically worked. No such luck this time.

 
 
 
 

Playing through Dark Souls 2 again. Huh, turns out I really do quite like it. I know it gets lots of flak, but I thoroughly enjoy it

 
 
 
 

I've given Phantom Pain about 90 minutes, maybe 2 hours, and and I liked Ground Zeroes more. I remember being excited about this game pre-launch but actually playing it just does nothing positive for me. MGS1 is just the only one in the series I like.

 
 
 

Welp, finished another read of a book that holds a lot of meaning for me. Found a copy of this book in my high school library due to random chance and it pushed me into microbiology. Its been enlightening to return to it and see the concepts it planted.
