Hey folks. I don’t post much, but if you’re interested in checking out the Sandbox game Starbound I’ll be streaming off and on. The game is still in beta, so sometimes character wipes happen, or things change significantly from day to day with new things being added. Really cool stuff so far. Now, if you dont know what this game is, well, it’s a 2D side-scrolling sandbox game similar in some sense to Minecraft. So yes, it looks old, but it sure is fun. Now how the game is different is (outside of just being 2D) quite a lot. For one there’s a good focus on combat, and questing, with a lot of exploration. You make a character and can visit millions (actually quadrillions) of other planets, all randomly generated. This is what is so cool to me so far, is just the vast amount of stuff I can explore, while still fighting getting new stuff and of course like Minecraft, BUILD! Well, enough rambling (for now, I’m sure Slider will want me to say more), I stream on Twitch, so check it out! http://www.twitch.tv/Reaper1183 Also check out Starbound if you’re interested – http://playstarbound.com/

Because we know Hitler survived, the suspense is centered in the minds of the participants, who call up the Reserve Army and actually arrest SS officials before discovering that their bomb did not kill its target.
Dark. Menacing. Exciting. All the things a trailer should be – this trailer delivers! You get a glimpse of the tone of the movie and no major plot points were given away. You see Godzilla, but not so much that you don’t want to see more. This made me even more excited for the May 2014 release. What do you think – are you excited? ARE YOU??? Let us know.

Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?…
The Breakfast Club.
This is the opening, and with a minor change the closing of the 1985 John Hughes teen movie classic, The Breakfast Club – one of the of, if not THE seminal movie experience of my adolescent years. In large part this film was responsible for changing my perception of who I thought I was and in many ways who I ended up being.
On Thanksgiving Day I had a bit of time on my hands. As such I went on a bit of a meme-a-thon, as you do… Below are some of the images I subjected the internet to. Enjoy!
