The Binding of Isaac video game

So, I bought the Humble Indie Bundle 7, now 3 years old, back in college, but never played all of the games. One of them, “The Binding of Isaac”, a product of Ed McMillen’s twisted and wonderful mind, had been on my to-play list for a while and I finally picked it up last weekend. […]

Collected: Plano

I visited Collected, a games and comic books store in Plano, this weekend. Collected has four other locations (Fort Worth, Keller, Burleson, Hurst).

Fresh Ink

Remember that segment on Attack of the Show, with Blair Butler? I got to re-watch an episode of Fresh Ink recently thanks to Archive.org’s collection of G4TV AOTS episodes (I’ve lost track of it since then). Picking through a few episodes, I’m reminded of its shortcomings, like blatant sexism and use of off-color jokes. Still, […]

It’s funny how people can be so sure about their candidate for political office and in the same breath assert that they aren’t qualified to predict how that candidate will perform in that office. It is worth thinking about what you’re going to say before you say it. I had thought that was obvious.
