So I decided to stop by an Asian grocery store near my house today, since I never have before, and I’ve heard good things about lychee juice. Well, while there, I picked up a bottle of what I thought was lychee juice, but was just some other drink. Feeling thirsty, I popped off the cap in the car to take a drink. Only, there was no cap to be found, only a glass bead lodged in the top to stop any drink from coming out. It took me 15 minutes to open up that fucker. Anyone know of an easy way to open said bottle (there’s Japanese moonspeak and a picture of a whale on the front)?
Speaking of drinks, I bet you’re all thirsty for come cblogs, aren’t ya? Well, in today’s blogs, we’ve got a shit-ton of videogame music, City of Heroes news, and the return of everyone’s favorite failure.

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
