I just finished Mass Effect 2 about 20 minutes ago. I’m now reinstalling ME1 so I can start the series over again as a renegade this time. Consider what I’ve said previously about my attitude toward replaying games and that should give you a good idea about how much I enjoyed it. But in case I need to spell it out, I really really enjoyed it. I will proceed to talk about it a bit, […]

In which it is painfully clear that I do not draw.

My shiny newness of today was mostly spent tinking around with a toy – as is really quite inevitable whenever there are toys in my proximity that are new. On extended loan from Amy is her old Wacom tablet, before today sitting alone in a closet quite rejected since she she went all professional big time with her precious Cintiq … which I must admit is pretty awesome and would be something I wouldn’t mind […]

Rogue (fuck yeah!) #6

When I picked up my first X-Men comic back in the 80s, I quickly realized one thing: Rogue is bloody awesome. It is truth. It is law. Every Wednesday I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it. Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH. It’s been several months since Xavier forced the X-Men to accept Rogue on the team. Just because she tried to kill them a few times and ambushed and […]

He has pretty eyes and I want to squish him.

Long day is long. I’m glad you only have two days left, March, because I have hated you. Get the fuck out of my calendar. There’s a lot on my mind today, but rather than talk about those interesting things I’m instead going to talk about Mass Effect. Because it too has been on my mind, though in a much less pervasive or important capacity. First up, I am so digging ME2 now. Even combat […]

"I am a library."

Come over totally exhausted for no particularly good reason. Bed it is, whereupon I shall continue to read more of Civil War. I’m currently on part 56, Young Avengers & Runaways #4. I actually haven’t read Young Avengers before. It’s pretty interesting. I get really wary about getting into the kid superheroes though, as it seems both Marvel and DC either like to cancel their books or gratuitously kill them off. Neither is particularly inspiring […]

24 Wheelbarrows, ICQ.

That’s what I always hear during “Roundabout”. Which I just finished playing in Rock Band 3, thus completing all the disc songs on pro-guitar. So. Proud. Yeah okay, on easy. Perhaps undeservedly so then, but I am anyway. It’s pretty awesome to initially be struggling to find anything in “I Love Rock and Roll” to a 87% sight read on “Beast & the Harlot”. I’m under no illusions that in and of itself that’s unimpressive, […]

It's like I'm back to graveyard shifts.

It’s almost 11pm and I’m only now feeling like dinner. It’s been a weird couple food days. But here I am. Mike’s gone to bed and I’m nomming on a bologna sandwich with cheez-its, so there’s a smashing dinner for you. There’s nothing on that I actually want to watch, so I switched on an episode of Kitchen Nightmares that my TiVo got for me because … I guess. I worked on A Thing some […]
