Rock Band DLC, Week of 26 April 2011

A fun mismatch of songs this week. I won’t be going into much (read: any) detail on them since I have my mother here for a visit and we’re about to crack into Rock Band 3 for her first time. She’s been so excited about this for months, it’s actually kind of adorable. So this week Roy Orbison meets KISS. And I wish I had been in on that meeting. – Roy Orbison – “Blue […]

The Zen of Jett, Week 48

Life is hard. We all know this. Even puppies know this, and their main jobs are to eat and poop. It’s a dark lonely road we walk, with only our wits to guide us. Jett understands, and she’s here to help. Every Friday, Jett will share with you her wisdom in your neverending lifequest for inner peace and fulfillment. This is The Zen of Jett.

Jim versus Woodpecker

This past Saturday Mike and I were in the game room both reading quietly. It was fairly early in the morning, 9 or 10-ish I think. We were both absorbed in our respective stories so it took a little while to realize we were hearing a sound: an intermittent but insistent tapping. We weren’t sure where it was coming from. I opened the blinds to the backyard but we still couldn’t see anything. So we […]

Rogue (fuck yeah!) #9

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. Rogue and the at-the-time-newb X-Men Psylocke, Dazzler and Longshot are in Scotland. So is Juggernaut, and you know what that means. In the course of the fight they […]

A Tale of Two Mes

Everyone’s talking about Portal 2. That coupled with the “For science” commercials makes me want to play it. Luckily(?) my mother’s imminent arrival makes starting any new game right now utterly pointless. It also however means I need to clean the house, and I am deeply rebelling against this. I did good today, actually cutting the lawn and washing the car, but dusting, scrubbing, zzzz. Plus I’m in a good working place at the moment […]

It was going so well until Waid fucked it up.

I’ve been sucking on my posts this week. I keep having too much I want to say, but not getting ready to start writing them until too late. New plan: write them throughout the day as I have thinky thoughts. Coming eventually soon: – Faith vs. science vs. ions – PAX 2011 – Legion of Super-Heroes – Lady Woman Girl – And More!

Apple Juicin'

Very tired, very congested, and in a bit of a rush tonight. End result, short post. Which is a bit of a pity as I had this whole big thing about science and faith, but I suppose it’ll hold. Today was going to be Stumptown, but wound up being the zoo instead. Yes! Zoo! Again! I was so upset I didn’t get to feed the lorikeets last time I was compelled to make a return […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 19 April

Struck with some major cold bug so relatively minimal insightful commentary on the DLC this week. We’ve got a group of random singles this time around, only one of which I know immediately by name. Guess which one? – Anberlin – “Breaking” – Mastodon – “Blood and Thunder” + – Ohio Players – “Fire” – Ohio Players – “Love Rollercoaster” + – Relient K – “Must Have Done Something Right” – Tommy Tutone – “867-5309/Jenny” […]
