Guess who just finished the semester with four A’s and a B?!? This freakin’ guy, that’s who!!!


 
 

It took 32 years, but it finally happened! All thanks to the new Destructoid forums!


 
 

It’s no secret around here that I love the movie Heathers. However, I don’t often talk about the soundtrack. This song is legit desert island material for me.

 
 

I’m slowly dipping my toes further and further into video game music. This demo is my first real attempt. I still need to upload it to Ableton, mix, and add some overdubs, but this feels like a solid foundation to build from!

 
 

It didn’t look like something I’d get into, but I started watching The Good Place on a whim (also, Ted Danson!), and everyone was right. It’s great. I finished the first season in less than 24hrs, and I’m watching season two right now!


 
 

#MyFirstQuickpost was about a comic I like a bunch, and (although, the Disqus history is gone now) Anthony Marzano (aka my arch nemesis) was the very first friend I made here as a result.


 
 

Are there any goofy video game mysteries that keep you up at night? I’m looking for submissions of any kind, no matter how insane, dumb, or small. It’s about to be summer break, so I’ve got a few months to play detective.


 
 

One of the things on my bucket list is to own a guitar that glows neon green like the violin in Starship Troopers.


 
 

I had a Zoom party with a few of my friends last night, all of us drinking and hanging out digitally. I gotta say, it was a good time! I thought it’d be lame, but it was rad as hell. It’s nice to have even just a little slice of normal these days.

 
 
 

I’m about two hours into Beyond: Two Souls, and I’m starting to question whether I really do have terrible taste in games. I loved Detroit, liked Heavy Rain, and I’m definitely digging this so far. It’s goofy sci-fi, and I’m all about that stuff


 
 

It’s 2:15 AM, and I’m currently rewatching The Fifth Element for the hundredth time. I always notice something new upon subsequent viewings. This time I realized that the population has grown to 200 billion, compared to the current 7.53 billion.


 
 

Pikuniku is so dang adorable! I was a bit skeptical for the first 30-40 mins, but it’s definitely awesome. Paper Mario-style humor with light light puzzles and super chill. I’m really glad I hopped on that $1 Switch sale! Thanks, Jordan!


 
 

I’ve been making decent progress with that Korg Kaossilator app that I posted about a while ago. My most recent creation is this goofy beat! It ain’t too fancy, but I had a lot of fun making it haha...

 
 

I just finished episode 5 of Tiger King, and I‘ve come to the conclusion that Joe Exotic is 100% Kenny Powers from Eastbound & Down.


 
 

I figured this show would be dumb, but Tiger King (and this man’s jacket) is pretty damn wonderful.


 
 

I wasn’t sure about it for the first 15-20 minutes, but Timecrimes is 100% a rad sci-fi movie.


 
 

The Korg iKaossilator app is free on iOS and Android until 3/20, and it’s pretty dang easy to use even if you aren’t a musician. I made this dumb loop in less than five minutes.

 
 

I watched the movie Tremors for the millionth time at 3am last night and noticed two things: 1. Bacon is pretending to smoke an unlit cigarette in the first scene, despite the tip being scorched. 2. His hair is amazing and deserves a movie of its own.


 
 

This is your annual reminder that this music video is straight up magic.

 
 

This song is my happy place. 1970’s Nigerian rock that just fucking kills it.

 
 

My professor asked our class a pretty solid question the other day, and I’d like to hear your opinions. Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck?

 
 

I’m back on the blog promoting train, so write some dang blogs! (I’ll go into details about the kinda stuff I’m looking for in the comments)


 
 

Nior wrote a really dope blog that y’all should read. I really like it’s hook. I’ll post the link in the comments.

 
 

Almost finished with season 1 of Mob Psycho 100, and it’s really great! Took a few episodes to sink its teeth into me, but I am now 100% in it for the long haul. This that good shit.


 
 

The Outer Worlds was a good time, but the ending scenes resort to the same bullshit, still-scene montage copout that’s been around since Fallout 3. That super sudden, feed of text, “use your imagination” fluff should have been abandoned back in 2008

 
 

This is still my favorite opening to any TV show ever.

 
 

After years of trying, I finally managed to get my hands on this. It’s a reissue, but it’s better than nothing and sounds great! They’re a scrappy pop band with a punk mentality, from back in the late 70’s, and they’re one of my favorites.


 
 

Based on the memes, I thought I’d hate Baby Yoda/The Child, but they are awesome. Occams was right. The Mandalorian is very good. As of Episode 6, it’s easily my favorite Star Wars entry since the original trilogy.

I like video games, music, comics, and corgis a whole lot. Pretty much everything I do in my free time revolves around these four things...
