How are you?


Damn it New York and your mutant animals. And clever advertising.

If you look at the bottom of our music thingy, you'll see a new link. I added a nifty lyrics page which also doubles as an archive, with the mp3s embedded in the title of each song. I'm doing so by linking songs from the Musicbox with Dropbox's new shareable link thing. Which is cool. Also Hannah, I need you to put your song in that box so I can link it. You can get to our new page here or at the bottom of the music sidebar tab.

It's Felicia Day's birthday! Which is the only birthday worth blogging!


So at first we all knew that the 3DS was coming out before April 2011. But now recent evidence suggests that it will be out this year. It's pretty exciting. Oh and I didn't feel like digging for my source on this once but I think the 3DS will cost about $200.

Other cool 3DS stuff:

For those who haven't been keeping up; the new iPhones have a reception problem inherit in their design. Here Steve Jobs shows us just how you're supposed to hold an iPhone to make it work.

I also liked this post which shows just how large Microsoft really is. In fact on Saturday morning i was talking to my dad about email providers and I thought gmail was bigger than hotmail. I was very wrong...

There haven't been any new posts lately cause Hannah's on vacation, Tim's gone, Rebekah died, Griffin's useless, and I don't feel like it. Good night.

These Pokemon oh god.


This game just killed two hours of my life. You start with four elements, and match them up to make 115. It's difficult. Do it with a partner, it's easier.

The list of names of fears is a kind of fearful thing itself, because it means that the names had to come from people who were legitimately afraid of these things. In some cases that's scarier than being afraid in the first place. Here's a few of my favorites:

Apotemnophobia- Fear of persons with amputations.
Auroraphobia- Fear of Northern lights.
Blennophobia- Fear of slime.
Cacophobia- Fear of ugliness.
Hedonophobia- Fear of feeling pleasure.
Ithyphallophobia- Fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis.
Novercaphobia- Fear of your step-mother.
Omphalophobia- Fear of belly buttons.
Phronemophobia- Fear of thinking. (How the hell do you stop thinking?)
Sesquipedalophobia- Fear of long words.
Walloonphobia- Fear of the Walloons. (These people)

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia- Fear of long words.

So I know that I've posted more things in the past couple of hours today that I've posted since I started writing for the blog, but the internet is full funnies.

Today, Blizzard released Patch 3.3.5 for World of Warcraft, introducing the Real-ID feature where you can friend any person using and see them when they are online playing ANY Blizzard game. (WoW, Starcraft, Warcraft)

With the new patch, they updated the ToS for; here's what was at the end....

Gandalf goes to kick some ass at the World Cup this season.

So apparently I don't post stuff on the blog and theres been talk of downsizing..... I SAY NAY!!!! I just haven't had time with school and whatnot but now that it's summer I'll be posting at least a weekly thing to talk about stuff, maybe even draw up some polls.

So NAY to downsizing as I am still here and now have free time to write. :)

Until next time minions.

So there's been a lot of talk amongst our staff here -- and by staff I mean Me, Hannah, and Jerry -- about downsizing our writing staff. Reasons are complicated and included budget cuts, etc. Oh and also because REBEKAH AND GRIFFIN HAVE NEVER POSTED ANYTHING. *ahem*

Right well we feel that we've been very patient and still we are willing to give you another chance. Post something interesting by the end of the week (week being Sunday through Saturday) or you're out.

At first I thought it wasn't real but now I'm not so sure.

The rest are kinda funny as well.

This probably means very little to those of you who have never seen Stargate, but it's funny nonetheless.

Since I'm a reff I usually sympathize when other reffs make bad calls, but this one is just so bad and it cost us the game.

Watching this video makes me want to play everything. Which I can, cause they're free. This is gonna be the least productive weekend ever.

Pixel Prospector

Start with a cage containing five monkeys.

Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water.

After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him.

After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know that's the way it's always been done round here.


You take two twitter accounts. You enter them. You watch the avatars battle it out. Each color has different abilities. There's also modes where you can control the pixels but those modes are for chumps.

Quick, go to Newsweek and enter the Konami code (up up down down left right left right b a enter). It's fun. Really.


Right so I whipped up a little music section on our sidebar. It's over there (---->) and down. Until there's new posts. Then it might be up. Anyway, it's a good way to post music. What I think we should do is put music up on a rotation. Right now I have my song (actually two, cause I'm first so screw you) up, and we'll leave that up for x amount of days, to be determined later. Then Tim will put his up, and then Hannah, and so on. The other two don't get a turn cause they suck. I figure it's a great way to share and discover new music, and to show you guys how much better my music is. Let's keep it fresh so try not to post Switchfoot each time Tim.

It's pretty easy to edit the thing, I'll teach you two when you get home. It took a ungodly amount of tweaking so you're damn well welcome. And again, Rebekah and Griffin suck.

Right, so I'm first this round with two songs by The Submarines. The first one's from an iPod commercial, and I just love the second one and didn't want to leave it out. I just downloaded them last night and think they're fantastic. So if anybody wants to not be like my beautiful girlfriend and download the rest of the album... you know.

EDIT: Oh right, I'm using Dropbox to host the mp3s. So Hannah, unless you want to find another host... you know.

I dare someone to write an English paper on this at some point.

I was supposed to try out this photography contest Tim told me about on Giz, something about lens flare in a picture BUT it's been raining for the past like 4 days. And inside pictures, especially when they're in my house, are boring. Is it weird to have dates with people who have girlfriends? There's some crazy Bob Marley crud playing on the radio now. Also I need Harvest Moon, I'm such an epic farmer. This was supposed to be an I-miss-Tim post, yeah. Wasn't I supposed to do Sleeping Giant things today? Hmmohwell. Being the only person a person cares about is a pretty cool thing. Also I need to think of a way to convince TMar that Tim and I aren't going out. Cause we aren't. Yeah
Charlie, we aren't.

This can be a things-that-bug-me post now.

1. When people think Tim and I are going out.
2. When people are sketchy and sneak around their girlfriends.
3. When people think it makes them seem hotter when they say they're not wearing pants. Girls especially, frakking leggings.
4. Having to type my texts because I'm too OCD about memories to delete them.
5. When it rains and it's supposed to be summer. Overcast is nice, but rain is only fun when there's Tim sitting next to you and you've just finished playing tennis and there's also a Gina on your lap.
6. That coffee doesn't make me any more awake. Just fell asleep on the couch after having some, that's pretty fail, caffeine.
7. Why they can't make Animal Crossing more interesting each game, there are SO MANY cool things they can add but nooooo, it's like the same thing every time.
8. When people obviously haven't studied for the Anatomy test and ask me every obvious question they're too dumb to figure out on their own.
10. That there are 3 classes of AP Psych next year. Our class thinks they're such great overachievers.

Guess I should translate some Cicero now, toodles.

Man I haven't played this in a while. It's 3D pong. And you can curve the ball. That's all.

Curve Ball

Lolz BP fails at playing tetris.

I don't really feel like writing anything up so here goes. This panorama of the Milky Way is very very big. And zoomable. And pretty. And my girlfriend loves it. And space.

On a much more important note, I'll be off in Disney from tomorrow to Monday. So if you notice a significant decrease in post quality during that period, it's cause I won't be there.

Now as you all know, I'm a pretty classy guy. I like to relax and kick it back with my buddies. When I want to impress my girl, I take the time to invite her over and treat her to the classiest experience she'll find. If you wanna try this for yourself, open these three tabs and give your special someone a call. It worked for me. You go out there champ, and show em how it's done. She'll thank you later.

EDIT: Added the three to my dropbox as one link.
