Well, no one read my last recap section, where I asked "are there any other good TV shows running besides Lost, and Chuck?" Due to a recommendation from a friend, I picked up all of Southland, and wow: is it great. I'm bummed the first season is only 7 episodes, but the word on the street is 13 more were just ordered for Season 2. I say bring it on.

In other "not-me" news, apparently instead of jostling failblogs, Hamza has commanded that we try to leave them alone as much as possible. It's going to be really hard to resist posting Ruby Rhod memes, but I think this is a great practice (at least until Hoborg starts blogging again).

Lastly, everyone should be introduced to an amazing, budding artist that's part of this community: SuitcoatAvenger. He was nice enough to draw me the stylized avatar you see at the bottom of this post.

Oh, herro. Do you rike progressive metal from Denmark?

One hour ago, I had it all typed out: "no fail today!" Then this happened:

F-What was the point in posting this? Hoborg posts the same blog everytime, and it all boils down to some form of the comment: "the PS3 is a waste of money".
F-I sure do love the smell of first time posters and their text-linked youtube blogs with 0 commentary in the morning!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
