Hello Eggnogga.

I have noticed your reply to my previous statement (see below) and am glad to now give you my response. Please forgive the lateness of my reply as I have been extremely busy around my house and television set during the last six months.



here's how pax went

I accidentally interrupted some sort of interview/broadast/tv show thing while I was wandering around the show floor. If you were watching some PAX television/webcast thing and a dude who looked like Jesus wandered in front of the camera/hostess, that was me.

The Mario Tennis game coming out for the 3DS? It's exactly like Mario Tennis except they took out the wacky trick shots and added some kind of store. EXACTLY.

Kid Icarus is also cool. Awkward in that "Metroid Prime Hunters" sort of way though.

Apparently I enjoy Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

Platformers are the "in" thing in indie gaming. Still? I dunno. I don't follow indie games as much as I maybe should.

I spent the rest of the show playing old video games instead of going to concerts or hunting down celebrity journalists or whatever. Would have been nice to meet a specific few famous people considering they were apparently near where I was, but oh well.

I guess I'm going back next year, assuming I'm not broke/homeless. Fingers crossed!

friday friday FRIDAY

I'm going to be at PAX East Friday only because I was a big dummy about getting a 3-Day pass. So if you happen to be at the convetion on Friday, I'll be there. So meet me if you want to beat me up or ramble about NES collectibles or beat me up or whatever.

Please don't beat me up.

Also, why would you want to meet me in person? Weirdo.


yup i'm bored?

why can't i flush this entire thing down the internet toilet? What happened to the old "delete this stupid blog" option? I like to think I'm less stupid than this **** these days.


i post on other sites now, i miss a few of y'all

this word is 24 characters: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dear Rays fans:

Would you like John Cena for good? Would you? We'll give him to you. Seriously. No strings attached, he's yours. We'll even forge a birth certificate for him, and fabricate an elaboriate life story that has him growing up in Florida. Fake photographs, a high school class ring, the whole shebang. We'll even chip in for a souviner Rays jersey with his name on the back.

Just keep him the Hell away from the commonwealth. In fact, keep him away from New England as a whole. And Philadelphia, I could be living there next year. Keep him away from the entire northeast. Keep him in Florida. Just keep destroying his shoulder every time he tries to rehab it.

No takebacks.

Welp, I'm addicted to Doom again.

I wasn't expecting it to happen, but it's like some sort of seasonal thing or something. The weather's getting colder, it's getting dark sooner, it's time for me to pull out my copy of the Doom Collecter's edition and give it a whirl. I figure that it's loosely possible that I could beat all 120 or so levels between Ultimate Doom and Final Doom by sometime around New Year's if I stay mildly focused. If I don't, well, who's going to be surprised?

Playing through the first Doom has reminded me how awful some of those terrible-ass levels are in the second episode. I mean really, there are some slow ones in the first game, but some of the maps in that episode are completely awful. If I wasn't such a completist I might just skip that part entirely. I've also got to say that no matter how often I look at a flat object that appears exactly the same from every possible angle, it never annoys me quite as much as the way that dead enemies would disintegrate in Doom 3.

I just didn't like Doom 3 much. But I'm looking forward to Doom 4. Perhaps I never learn?

The Umpire's Handbook, selected guidelines from.

Guideline 1.04: Ball/strike calls may be made anywhere up to five minutes after a pitch is thrown. The acceptable amount of time before a call must be made increases as the count does. With a count of three balls it is appropriate to wait for any attempt by a batter to walk to first base after a pitch is thrown before making a strike call. Try really hard to catch them in the middle of a bat flip and make sure your call is extra enthusiastic. Bonus points if you catch them more than two steps down the line.

Guideline 1.11: Make ball/strike calls as loud as possible. Make strikeout calls even louder. If someone doesn't think you've had a heart attack, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

Guideline 1.89: A balk may be called at any time, for any reason. Actual balks may be ignored. Feel free to call a balk after a fly ball has been hit or once an entire team has headed back into the dugout. Don't know what a balk is? That's okay, call one anyway.

Guideline 2.09: Strike zones are mobile. Different things can move the strike zone, the wind, batters swinging too hard, maybe a careless grounds crew member cleaning up the infield between innings. Whatever. It's not your fault if something isn't a strike the second time around.

Guideline 2.30: Older pitchers have a larger strike zone because older pitchers have a harder time seeing the strike zone as they age because their vision is leaving them.

Guideline 4.27: Damn, that Earl Weaver dude is nuts man.

Guideline 4.89: Back as far away from a play as possible before you make it. Try to make sure as many people as possible are blocking your line of sight. Insist you got the best view possible afterwards.

Guideline 6.53: God damn it, you're the ****ing Umpire, you're right dammit. Who the **** do they think they are, questioning your judgement about anything? What the **** is this ****? Huh? Who the **** are they?! It's this **** that makes me think we should just nuke the whole planet man, these people are never gonna get it. Just blow it all up, man, sometimes I wish they'd really learn. That'll teach 'em. Who thinks they can question you like that, huh? You're the ****ing Umpire for ****'s sakes! They've gotta learn a ****ing lesson if they're not going to play ball your way.
