It's #sadsongsunday. Yay! This one is a staple of mine for when I want to feed the malaise. What better way to start an album than to make yourself feel like you're in a trance of indecisiveness, just being swept along.

 
 

I'm alive. It's #SadSongSunday. Jim Guthrie is probably one of the more optimistic artists I listen to, but in his early days, he experimented with a lot of sounds and moods. I think this one is heightened by the fact that you can hear his chair squeak.

 
 

It's been a rough week for me, but happy #SadSongSunday! I can't profess to be a fan of Wilco, but Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is my go to album of despair. As for the song, I probably like it because I'm pretty sure I misunderstand the meaning of the lyrics.

 
 

Right on time, it's a review for Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012. I kept saying "Vacation 2020" in the review, which seems appropriate, but I had to find/replace to make sure I didn't miss any.


 
 

Happy #SadSongSunday. Gosh, I love this album. The whole thing, but particularly the last two songs, which I had to give another listen to in order to decide which was sadder. Maybe I'll use the other for another Sunday.

 
 

Sorry this assignment is late, boss. It's a review of No More Heroes. It won't happen again. I'll have the next one on your desk by Monday, I promise.


 
 

Bought a book of fairy art. Please don’t make fun of me.


 
 

I know I said I was going to play old favourites, but then I somehow ended up on Twisted Metal 4, which I have a review for. Don't worry, I don't own Small Brawl. Yet...


 
 

Hello from rural Ontario. I should have a Game Complaint Department review up sometime tonight; whenever I have some peace with my laptop.


 
 

Depending on how you interpret my choice for #sadsongsunday, it could actually be an uplifting song about letting go of your problems. That, or it could be about all your problems being so bad that the only solution is to burn it all down and start over.

 
 

In today's Dating Adzuken, I score royally in Amber's Magic Shop. This is going to be my last Dating Adzuken article for a while, details in comments.


 
 

In today's review, I get the chance to complain about a movie while praising a game based on it. It's Star Wars Racer. My comfort food.

 
 

It's #SadSongSunday. This is probably one of my favourite songs of all time. I don't really relate to the lyrics. It's about crystal meth addiction in the gay community, and I've never even touched a drug in my life. I just really dig the imagery.

Today's Dating Adzuken is hilariously less spicy than the game's name suggests. I try to find romance in Seduce Me, and, well, the game was free, so what am I complaining about?


 
 

Although getting bullied by the Suda51 defence force has left a bad taste in my mouth, I’m not going to let that stop me from jumping into an old favourite.


 
 

I upset a subset of Suda51 fans on Twitter with my review of Paradise Killer. It’s fascinating to me that you can run afoul of little pockets of misery on the internet by liking the same thing they do but maybe not licking its feet as much?


 
 

It's been over a year since I last did an Army Men review. Maybe I should get back into it. Starting with Sarge's Heroes 2 for PS1.


 
 

It's still technically #sadsongsunday for another 5 minutes here. I'm not too proud to say I don't know what the lyrics mean in this song, but it's probably about a breakup. It's always about a breakup.

 
 

Here's a fact: every time I write a new dating article, I consider it the "best one." With that in mind, here's Pub Encounter, the best Dating Adzuken, yet.


 
 

A toy that encouraged you to destroy your parents' floor trim. All of these guys are in my parents' basement now in varying states of destroyed. I still remember the day we got them. I would have been, like, 3 or 4 at the time. #childhoodtoytoid


 
 

I've had this review of River City Girls done for a while, but then stuff happened and it never got posted. So here it is now!


 
 

I used to know an arrangement of this on my ukulele and spent many an evening of depression lying on the floor, plucking this song out, and plaintively singing along. #sadsongsunday

 
 

Now that my review for Best Friend Forever has been posted, I can show off some of the glitches I mentioned in it. This one had me giggling the most, but I'll post another one in the comments.


 
 

I think some misunderstand, my Dating Adzuken articles are for people who DON'T have an interest in dating sims. Today's entry, True Love, is more about history and nakedness.


 
 

Gosh, searching for a new dating sim on Steam is a whole new level of dangerous. It quickly goes from, "Oh, this looks cute," to immediately backing out of the store page.

 
 

If I keep reviewing ecchi games like KukkoroDay, someone's going to start thinking I'm a pervert. But I swear, I only play them for their cute love stories. You believe me, right?


 
 

Oh, right. I was trying to make #sadsongsunday a thing. You can't throw a rock at Elliot Smith's discography without hitting something heartbreaking. But perhaps the saddest songs were released after he committed suicide.

 
 

My dating experience goes catastrophically wrong in this week's Dating Adzuken. This time it's all Nicole's fault.


 
 

I bumped into a fellow community member in the street yesterday, but they were being responsible and wearing a mask, so I didn't recognize them. If this is you in the picture, just know that I wasn't trying to ignore you, I was just in a hurry.
