So I’m reading China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station. The overall story is pretty good so far, but the author is just *so* impressed with himself. First, he delights in trying to gross us out; I don’t think he can go 3 paragraphs without using “shit” somewhere. Sometimes as an expletive: […]

I finally finished LotR last night. Whenever I read the trilogy, finishing it becomes something of a relief, since somewhere about 2/3’s of the way into The Two Tower I become a total slave to it. That’s where Tolkein grips me to a point where it starts interfering with my […]

Well, actually its an article more about Willow than Buffy. Worth a read, but time-shifters be warned… spoilers within. Get the season finale off your Tivo and then read the article.

I’m intrigued and delighted by this ‘game editing’ trend becoming so big. I mean, granted there have always been editors for games; either fan built hacks or tools included by the developers. But we’re getting to the point where some kind of editing tool is pretty much expected from the […]

What a long, stupid day. I took the day off from work so I could get going on a few projects I’ve been meaning to do. Woke up, plopped on the couch and there I stayed for most of the day. I watched a lot of tv, putzed around with […]

Holy crap! I got home from work kinda drained and lazy so I figured I’d pop open a beer, plop on the couch and watch some TV. I had 3 eps of BuffyTVS languishing on my Tivo, so I watched the first one (that’d be the one from 3 weeks […]

If you’ve played Dungeon Siege, you’ll probably get a kick out of the recent Angst Technology comic strips.
