Woke up this morning ready to play video games. I wanted to shoot some rival factions in MAG. I wanted to get a couple more levels in Super Mario Galaxy 2. I wanted to suffer through the single player campaign of Section 8 before jumping in...

 
 
 

Scratching that Itch

My intentions were honest and pure of heart in the beginning. Having just been gifted an Xbox, and spending fifty bucks on a Ps2 from craigslist, I had completed the holy trinity of consoles [I already was a proud owner of a Gamecube], alb...

 
 
 
 

My First Affair

I didnít know it then, but the following experience would be the first in many affairs that I would have in my life. I was naÔve, and didnít think there was anything wrong in what I was doing. In the present day, with so many people on both...

 
 
 

Cooperation in Co-op? What's that?

So there you are, breathing heavily, scanning the alley in front of you, looking out for any signs of zombies. You think to yourself, ďMy teammates are counting on me. Donít screw this up.Ē And then, something clicks. You say, ďThe hell wit...

Here's a quick blurb about myself-

I am a children's librarian living in Los Angeles.
