Re-cappin' across the universe, on the starship Destructoid.

I had big things planned today, a whole huge rant on climate change and environmentalists after I read a new article on the topic. Then I took a nap this afternoon and the whole thing had to be scrapped for time. I don't know about you guys, but taking a nap (ironically) wipes me out and I can't seem to get much of anything done afterwards.

Anyway, maybe next week. It's my last day for teh recapz this week, ceark returns tomorrow to rock your world. Have a good one, everybody.

About Rodney Dangerfield:

The mere inclusion of Rodney Dangerfield can vastly improve anything. Films, music, toasters, anything. In particular, the force of Rodney Dangerfield could elevate video games to the level in which they are accepted by the mainstream as a true art form, bringing together people of all races, creeds and tax brackets in peace and harmony.

RIP Rodney.
