  1. Welcome to TNL 4.1

    One thing that The Next Level has always had in abundance is deep community involvement. From its humble beginnings to its modest present-day existence, a tightly knit group of informed enthusiasts has been the backbone of what TNL is all about.

    With this latest round of improvements (some of which are still not live as of this writing), the goal is tripartite.

    First off, we want to capitalize on all the talent in our forums and give our members new ways to express and ...

  2. Y'all Got Them New Xbaks?

    The phone rings.
    I muster up all the possible enthusiasm that I can and answer with a dead pan monotone, "Game Craze"
    "Yo! Y'all got them new xbaks?"
    "The one that was just announced that it is shipping to retailers and will be available by the end of the week?"
    "Nah man! They just said it's out today"
    "Nah man. They just announced that it is shipping to retailers and will be available by the end of the week." ...

  3. Y'all Got Cash?

    Ah Summer Time!
    How I loathe thee.
    Summer means the stinky people that frequent the store are even stinkier.

    Summer means the greasy people that frequent the store are even greasier. Seriously. Usually I only have to wipe down the glass showcases at the end of the day. But if the temperature outside hits anywhere higher than 72 then the glass looks like someone smeared Vaseline all over it within minutes of opening the door.

    Summer means everyone has ...

  4. KA-KLANG KA-KLANG KA-KLANG KA-KLANG KA-KLANG KA-KLANG

    There's a common misconception concerning me going around the community I work in. No, not the racism stuff, that is true. No, I am referring to the idea that I hate kids. I don't hate kids. I love kids (w'sup Mzo, Shine). I have friends who are kids. I do hate the "parents" of most kids that come into the shop though. I put that in quotes because I think parents is a misnomer for these people. From what I can tell, there isn't any parenting going on.

    I'm going to ...
  5. Post Coital

    I've never seen the reason to have these things. Most people just are not that interesting, and have nothing interesting to share unless they heard/read it from some other far more interesting source.
    But we all want to be noticed.
    We all want attention. Especially those of us who say we don't.
    The only things even remotely interesting about my everyday life are the people who frequent the game shop I work at.
    So I plan on filling this space with pictures and anecdotes ...

  6. Single Player

    Sometimes it's hard getting people to come see a movie with you. It could have something to do with the types of movies I watch. I guess not everyone is into seeing a talking zombie baby popping out of its zombie mother's womb. These are just some of life's realities.

    The same thing happened to me with video games. I remember learning to play an import of JoJo's Bizzare Adventure and eventually becoming really good at it. I brought it out once in my social circle and played it for ...

  7. /

    My sister, Mrs. Joe Gargery, was more than twenty years older than I, and had established a great reputation with herself and the neighbours because she had brought me up ‘by hand.’ Having at that time to find out for myself what the expression meant, and knowing her to have a hard and heavy hand, and to be much in the habit of laying it upon her husband as well as upon me, I supposed that Joe Gargery and I were both brought up by hand.
    She was not a good-looking woman, my sister; and I had ...

  8. Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down

    Now this is a story all about how
    My life got flipped turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air

    In West Philadelphia born and raised
    On the playground is where I spent most of my days
    Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
    And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school
    When a couple of guys who were up to no good
    Started makin' trouble in my ...

  9. TNL and the Bad Guy

    TNL sucks fat cocks now, Nick. It's hard to view anything without my eyes twisting in pain. Fix this visual abortion or fuck you.
