unplanned maintenance

Just a quick note for all you folks running WordPress blogs. There is apparently a hack in-the-wild that can lead to a site compromise. There’s no patch as of yet, but it does seem to be “under control” per some of the news I’ve seen. Regardless, I wiped out 99% of the user accounts in […]

set phasers to grind

Yeah, so I’ve been playing STO quite a lotta little bit lately. It’s actually pretty fun once you learn to ignore the parts that, well, aren’t. Like crafting. Jesus H Christ on a crutch is the crafting bad. More on STO later, maybe, but for now enjoy a couple vids I snapped in XFire. Yes, […]

reprint: bite me, Aion

Originally published @ Bite My Review on Sep 15, 2009 First off let’s get the disclaimer out-of-the-way. I’m fairly new to Aion, having only participated in the last two closed beta events. These tests required a legacy invitation from an earlier event or a confirmed pre-order key. Based on my experience I can say that […]

needs more hamlin

The summer of 2009 was rather lackluster, despite being pretty damn profitable. What you say? You didn’t think the summer of Transformers 2, Half-Blood Prince, Wolverine, Star Trek, GI Joe and Terminator wasn’t amazing bomb-diggity mad-propz rooflecopters? In a word? No. Entertaining for certain, but nothing life-altering. 2010 seems to agree with me. I’ve already […]

i want a puppy too, dammit

How did Kick-Ass sneak up on me? It’s like the perfect combination of hilarious, ridiculous, amazingous awesome…ous. Just watch! See!  Is that not the greatest thing ever? Now I must pick up the Millar/Romita books, too. Damn yous!

must…move…to…Los Angeles

I’m not sure where I found this particular link, I think maybe Slashfood? No idea. I don’t care. I’m in love. The first video was the “McNuggetini”. I’ve since watched about half the channel – a feat which challenges my libido and my ability fight back overwhelming nausea. I just about lost it on all […]

2009 in tv – not that bad aktsually

As we enter December and what passes for the 2009 television season draws to a close I’m struck by how awesome some shows have been this year. I’m struck by a number of other things, as well, but that’s another show… My top picks of 2009, in no particular order… Sons of Anarchy (FX) SoA […]

busy, busy, busy – the recap

I certainly post a lot of these “I have better things to do than post” posts, don’t I? You know the drill. Work, non-work, the pending holidays, etc, etc. The annual pilgrimage to Kenebec was somewhat less than fruitful this year. The fall was uncommonly wet, which delayed the harvest by nearly a month. For […]

bite my review…please?

My second article (this time with actual substance) went up on Bite My Review this week. Check it out! I’m definately digging this writing gig, it’s stretching muscles that I’ve never really tried using “professionally” before. Occasional forays into unknown territory are good for the soul.

uncontainable fury

No, really. My fury is without containment options. This blog has (and will always be) my vanity site. My little corner of the internets where I can say whatever crazy nonsense pops into my head. I rarely censor (or grammar-check) anything I post or, for that matter, fact-check anything. Ever. That’s just how I roll, […]
