Boobs are fun, but beware.

Posted by Dacquin at 5:53 AM
You know, every guy likes breasts, and we all like to look at breasts, but beware if a girl flashes you for no reason.

The Booby Trap

My friend pronounced it "guh-mail"...

Posted by Nathaniel at 10:34 PM
Yep, I finally scored myself a Gmail account. Some thoughtful person in some forums I frequent was kind enough to pass out some free invitations he had received. For as long as this email system has been in beta, and as much coverage it has received in the web media, I'm sure it will be unveiled to the public sometime very soon. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the nice features that are so very different from all the other email accounts I have used in the past. For example, I have 10 emails in my inbox. I'm currently using 0% of my 1GB of space. Wow. The labels are excellent too. They (admittedly) have a lot of work to do in the horrendously-designed Contacts section, but I'm sure they'll get that cleared up soon. Want to email me? Get on my "good side" so I can share the love when Google decides to allow me to send out 6 invitations of my own? Here's the new address:

I know I said I'd be posting more often, and I absolutely hate it when I say that, and then immediately thereafter, my life is suddenly plunged into a downward spiral of furious and constant motion, as is often the case. Right now, the Sunday night high school church group I teach has started up again for the school year, and I'm writing the lessons for basically the entire year. That's a lot of teaching for a volunteer job. Plus, we had another one of our "crazy" week's at work where we have 20 people from our worldwide offices in for design work on our major project implementation, and I work a thankless 10-12 hour day and then go home and crash so I can get ready to do it all over again the next morning. It's fun! Well, I shouldn't say it's completely thankless. Our bosses let us know just how much they appreciate us when it's all said and done. But until then, I just feel like one gigantic blur. Whirlwind of activity! Something like that.

Someone pointed out to me that the current Online Comic Weekly Spotlight has been up for about a month. Yeah. Thanks for pointing that one out, Captain Obvious. Appreciate it. I'm going to switch the title to "Online Comic Sporadic/Periodic Spotlight" just to prove a point. I don't know right now what point that is, exactly - my brain is just a bit numb at the moment. I'll think of something, though. You rest easy. I'll get something up there. I've had a few suggestions recently, and I'll go see if something is postworthy.

But just so you know, if you have gone and checked out the current Spotlight, you would agree that something requiring that much effort and talent deserves to be in the Spotlight just a bit longer, no?

Later, kids. Remember to email me.

Happy Tree Friends

Posted by Dacquin at 8:25 AM
I was just introduced to this site, and at first I thought that these cute animals should be destroyed because they're unbelieveably cute.

And I was so happy because that's exactly what happens!

I've always preferred Overclocked Remix for my NES/SNES rearrangements, myself.

NES rock music.

Posted by Dacquin at 8:53 PM
May I present, the NESkimos!!!

I discovered this by someone using one of their songs as a Flash animation. They take normal nintendo music and make it ROCK! Even better, the downloading is free just by registering!

My personal favorite: F-zero - Big Blue

It's ruined my life.

Posted by Dacquin at 5:25 PM
This is Stepmania. For me, it's DDR on the keyboard and I'm addicted. I wish I had DDR for real, but this is as close as I'll get. And I'm hooked.

Evil ebay auction

Posted by Dacquin at 5:54 AM
I found this a little while ago and was annoyed at the person for selling his dreamcast.

Evil Ebay Person

Notice that? He's selling 75 dreamcast games, ALL of them are CD-Rs. I think it's funny he's using the money to pay for college books, cause we all know he'll be playing video games instead. Maybe on his Xbox with 50 DVD-R games.

Sic Video Game Companies! Sic!

Blogging and games just don't mix...

Posted by Nathaniel at 2:07 PM
Guess who's trying their hand at a gaming community blog. Hopefully their foray into the vast unknown will fare better than 1up's half-hearted, meager attempt at popularity. Though they've done a fantastic job of building a sense of community, they've completely side-stepped that nasty problem of actually providing any sort of relevant game content.

I attempted to play a bit of WoW this weekend, but my computer decided that all of that effort I put into trying to download and install the game would be for nothing as my equipment is too outdated to even play the game. It crashed the second I tried to launch the application. Poor me. =( This has taught me one very important lesson: I was not meant to be a PC gamer.

I'm sticking to my Cube.

Clerks 2!

Posted by Dacquin at 7:40 AM
I'm a Kevin Smith fan minus Chasing Amy and Jersey Girl (Benneffer is a cruel cruel thing) and plans on getting back to his roots by making Passion of the Clerks.

Clerks 2

I think this will be great. It'd better be. Or else I'll be going to Mr. Smith and give him the wedgie of a lifetime.

For those who have been living under a rock.

Posted by Dacquin at 8:49 PM
I just started my first day of a full time job, so I decided to post something that every internet person has checked out already.

Homestar Runner

And by the way, the file for WoW is 2.3 gigs of memory to download. I don't have the time for that, but at least I don't have a 56k modem. The test will have already been over and World Peace will have resulted when a 56k modems downloads a 2.3 gigabyte file.

Begins today at noon! Too bad I won't be able to get on until late tonight. Curse you full-time job and family togetherness!

Online Comic Weekly Spotlight!

Posted by Nathaniel at 9:58 PM
An Evil Network first: an animated series!

Downloaded and played the Evil Genius demo, and I have to say that this is probably one of the most interesting and inventive games to come along in a very long time. I'm definitely going to be picking up a copy (probably ask for it for my birthday - add it to the list, I suppose!). I can't wait to see what other types of gameplay to expect in the full version. Of course, with so many RPGs coming out, how will I decide what to get, what to play, and where I'll find time for them all?

Decisions, decisions...

That's one big burrito...

If they were allowed to eat this burrito, there would've been the biggest fartfest in world history.
