As you may or may not be aware Twyztedmind is my Husband & also happens to be one of the thousands of Gamers in the military who get deployed every year. He’s gone now (no I can’t tell you where. I’d have to call Seal Team 6 in to re-arrange your memories if I did). He runs 2 game nights currently on the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) & has a really good turn out of other geeks who have been banished to reside in her steel walls. The problem we have is being able to get our hands on the products that the guys are asking for because none of the publishers consider us a “Real” store. I went to Las Vegas to confront these game manufactures who still do not consider radioactive steel & rivets to be enough of a store to allow us to carry their products. I think this has to do with the fact that they can only see our website (www.gamerapocalypseinc.com). Read the rest of this entry →

Last night, my roommate and I found that there was no hot water in our apartment, so we guesstimated that the pilot light must be out on the water heater. I called my mom. She said “Outed pilot lights are dangerous, you could die!” (I hadn’t known this.) Meanwhile my roommate and I couldn’t even find the place where the pilot light might be, and kept joking about blowing ourselves up in increasingly nervous voices while we fiddled around, touching the heater’s trickier looking parts. My mom told us to call PG&E. Read the rest of this entry →

So, I do still occasionally venture over to Gawker just in case Richard Lawson has recapped something, and I noticed that the band Sugarland played on last night’s American Idol. They’ve got a local connection, singer Jennifer Nettles used to be in Athens band Soul Miner’s Daughter and was quite a Big Deal Around Here for a few years. I was never much of a fan. It was all pitched to a certain early-20′s, undergraduate, Indigo Girls level of earnestness that I outgrew somewhere around the time I started having to shave my chin more than once a week.
Nonetheless, I decided to check out their performance. Someone had embedded it in the comments. The full, soul-chewing horror of what I beheld is after the jump.

Remember 1988? Of course you do. It was the year that democracy farted and produced a gaseous, evil turtle-faced blob called Joe Lieberman. This horrid smell somehow won re-election four times to the Senate, using tendrils of obsequiousness and turtle cunning. Now you’ll be glad to know that this awful thing won’t be around for much longer, for this awful thing is now retiring, which is a good thing.
I don’t have any children. Never really been into the procreating thing – don’t get me wrong, I love the practicing part and the oral stuff, but unless spanking and dirty talk are going to be required to get a lady pregnant, I’m going to be childless for the foreseeable. Now news reaches my brain that Lionsgate – those pushers of the Saw movies – are to adapt the best-seller “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”, which is apparently about pregnancy and raising a mewling little brat only you really love, into a motion picture that you can watch.

I’ve never read a “man’s magazine” ever, which I think AskMen.com is the online equivalent of. I dunno. I think it’s one of the ones I see as I pass by in the supermarket, always promising 6 pack abs without exercising in the same manner that Cosmo always promises earth-shattering orgasms without plugging yourself into an outlet and inserting an enormous sex toy inside you while your pets look on in a state of confusion. All these magazines make me giggle and feel sad at the same time. Giggle, because they’re obviously silly, selling themselves with bold-font side-show promises. Sad, because people buy them.
