Was it worth it?

(Feedback says that posting earlier in the day was well-received, plus I passed out last night without posting, so … seize the consciousness while it hovers I suppose.) For absolutely no good reason at all my body decided it was going to become PLAGUE CENTRAL yesterday. Went to bed feeling fine, woke up around 2am feeling shitty, and every wake-up from that point on (and there were so very many) was worse. I spent all […]

Rogue (fuck yeah!) #8

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 goes home and finds her old room. Her mind starts to wander. And I’m just going to leave this panel right here. Rogue. Her mother’s an international […]

Vostok

Banging out my post now since I’ll be occupied possibly until late tonight. As previously mentioned, Scott is pretty big into ham radios. Today he discovered that the International Space Station will be making assorted transmissions from Yuri Gagarin’s historic flight. We’ll apparently (theoretically) be able to start receiving them around 10pm or so. And thus tonight we’ll be huddling around a radio, much as I imagine they were 50 years ago. Not much to […]

It's so BAD!

My mother sent us a couple of boxes of assorted stuff this weekend. I think she was really just looking for a way to unload some more of my endless supplies of crap that still infect her house all these years later, but. Enclosed were some amazing things. Many trades and graphic novels that we haven’t seen in years: From the Ashes (collecting Uncanny #169-#175, some of the best), Batman Death in the Family, Secret […]

MYLION

Nobody else is going to get that subject line, but oh well. I somehow made it home without falling asleep. I am utterly knackered. Big day filled with big things, including a trip to the zoo. This was a huge thing for Mike and I for many boring reasons, and we’re both so glad we finally made it back there after many many abortive attempts over the years. Sadly I am now too tired to […]

Mere Performing Freaks.

Good productive Chosen day. Started my weekend by blasting through some more guitar score logs in Rock Band, finally (FINALLY) getting me out of the “T”s. I think that was my checkered flag. ‘Course I still technically have all the bass scores, drums scores and vocals scores, but lalalala can’t hear you I’m finishing guitar yay. Then a lovely evening at Amy and Scott’s, the highlight of which has to be the surprise of Scott […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 12 April 2011

Since Rock Band 3 was released, I have been delighted with the DLC Harmonix has offered. Even the slower weeks have been easily glossed over by the heady rush of the awesome that came before. This week they’re still going strong, with a six pack of Stevie Nicks, both Fleetwood Mac and solo. – Fleetwood Mac – “Dreams” + – Fleetwood Mac – “Gold Dust Woman” – Fleetwood Mac – “Landslide” – Fleetwood Mac – […]

O Captain, My Captain

Just finished my speed-play of Mass Effect 1 with my renegade Male Shepard, who I in no way warmed to before the the end of the game. My but he’s a bastard. A wooden, unemoting bastard. Interesting choices as renegade however, and I’m extremely interested to see how those play out in ME2. The hardest part: Killing the rachni queen. I had guilt pangs. Over an action in a video game. Yeah. Have to admit […]

Here are things and I am sleepy.

Quickies as I am tired. The Internets was all abuzz this morning about Glenn Beck parting from FOX. I do not understand this. I think he’s a reprehensible waste of airwaves too, but sad as it is to say, he’s found an audience and he’s found money and he’s found some measure of influence. Those things aren’t going to go away just because he doesn’t have a show on FOX anymore. Personally, I’d rather he […]

Oh! You Dreamy Things

I had a dream last night. It was basically amazing. I traveled around. I think I was solving crimes, as you do. I was trying to figure something out, and it required I go into the ocean. I don’t recall it specifically but let’s assume I was in scuba gear or had a tiny personal submarine or something. While I was in the ocean looking for whatever I was looking for, I came upon a […]
