Monday Monday

Trudging through Monday. Here's some thoughts: Beat God of War III last night. Was about what I expected. The gory bits were great. The puzzle bits annoyed the shit out of me. The boss fights were really fun, if frustrating at times. ...

 
 
 

Don't stand in the damn hallway. Also, Happy Birthday!

In the waking world, I am a very quiet guy. I've was a quiet kid most my life and grew into a quiet adult. I wear headphones all the time, tend to have a perma-scowl on my face and go from point A to point B without engaging most of huma...

 
 
 
 

My super group has a muppet and alien in it

Music that makes me happy - I'll cover you

Cover songs are a strange beast. Both adored and reviled with equal fervor, cover songs wield the double-edged sword of potential. You average local rock band that plays at your average local bar swears by them. I personally have seen lin...

Thoughts on a tired Monday.

I can't seem to wake up today. Nor can I construct a thoughtful narrative. So here are some of the thoughts floating through my head on this Monday. -The super bowl happened last night. I live in Louisiana. I still don�t know what ...

 
 
 

Who My Dragon Age Party Reminded Me Of: Musicians

I recently finished up Dragon Age: Origins and wanted to talk about it for just a bit. I�m not going to review it as that�s been done by people much better at expressing themselves than me. However, two things stuck with me about the game...

 
 
 

Assistance is requested

The Lesson of the Plushie Snake

Music that makes me happy 5 - beep bop boop

Video Game Music Video game music got me through undergrad and graduate school when mid-terms and finals came around. I wrote too many papers to the Final Fantasy soundtracks and Mike Tyson's Punch-Out soundtrack (all 15 minutes of it) on...

 
 
 

Music that makes me happy 4 - message

What attracted me to punk music way back when is that it was angry, but had a focus. It has a point and, perhaps more importantly, a message. I was able to enjoy the energy of the music but also hear and appreciate the message. To call ...

 
 
 

Music that makes me happy 2 - the ladies

Beat Brutal Legend. Now on to Demon Soul's. Yay?

Beat Brutal Legend last night. I had originally pre-ordered it but after reading a few reviews and seeing just how much the RTS element was used in the single player part of the game, I decided to rent it instead. After going through it I...

 
 
 

Nickelback is the second worst band of all time.

Creed is first. They are like the Chili's of music. -Now, that being said, I drew some art in MS paint and wanted to put it up on the interweb for all of you to see (and mock). Because really, what better way to express yourself artist...
