  • Midlife Sundown

    The entryway to middle age is an unpleasant threshold, that much is certain. I’ll allow that it has something to do with the receding halcyon lights of youth, narrowing to a pinprick in the mind’s eye. It’s rather like hurtling down a well, your upturned face uselessly swallowing up the…

  • Surgical Theology

    It’s always startling to find yourself at the intersection of a particularly strange convergence of thoughts, especially when the catalyst of oddity is a pretty flower. Still, with this blossom between my fingers this morning, unlikely or not, I paired the word “beautiful” with “as long as it doesn’t beat…

  • “Dishonored” Announced

    Although it’s hardly timely (it’s been more than a month since the official announcement), I figured I’d post a quick shout out for “Dishonored”, the game I’ve been working on for the past two and half years.

  • Making Babies and Shit

    On a night not unlike this one your mommy and daddy decided to have a baby. It started, as many things do, with a conversation. “I have an idea,” said your daddy. “How about you” he began, indicating mommy, “start eating a few extra burritos, yogurts, and Eggo Homestyle Waffles.”…

  • Once Burned

    Stillness tends to play catch up in my life, usually lurking behind in the wake of the day’s mundane chaos. It isn’t often that a quiet moment forcibly seizes me, ramming other thoughts over the edge. But that happened once tonight, right in the midst of my daily grind. The…

    As mentioned earlier, I've committed to writing a "brain dump" post if and when this site reaches 10,000 views, 100,000 views, and 1,000,000 views. This is one of those.

  • +10,000 XP – New Level Get!

    When I first started writing this blog I had a bunch of half-baked ideas I wanted to try, and among these were a few topics that can only be categorized as “personal maintenance”. Chief among these was the idea that I would commit to writing a single informal post about…

  • Gamers Whiny Crybabies Because Game Developers Suck at Games

    Long before the proliferation of Internet forums, there was a time when a friend of mine looked at one of my other friends, and then punched that bastard in the face. Why? “Because”, that’s why. Oh certainly he’ll say it was because we was defending the honor of the SNES…
