  1. AD 001.

    I am hoping to get AD post 001 done and up soon. Personal, but aren't all blogs..., and I hope it will be depressing, illuminating or, at the very least, a cautionary tale.
  2. There is only so much time for <input your favorite hobby>

    Anyone who knows me know that I love videogames. Been playing it since my parents made a bet with me to buy me the Atari 2600 if I could finish 3rd in my class (of course, they didn't think I could to it and I showed them and never looked back). Videogames is a big part of my life, I like to read/discuss and of course, play a lot of games after a day of hardwork and everyone goes to bed.

    But every so often, I lose the desire to even play my favorite games. It usually coincides ...

    I've been thinking of my childhood years in terms of gaming recently and I wanted to compile a list of games that stand out the most and what I remember spending hours upon hours on.

  4. Now a word from your quietest poster...

    If not the quietest, then certainly up there. Why?

    A few reasons,

    I can't spell for shit. Think IP bad. Even with fastidious spell checking, it get's quite tiring when I have tons of errors.

    I am not used to expressing my opinions. Don't ask, but I'm just not open to having what I think bashed, insulted, and declared wrong.

    So I post very, very little. I also don't talk about or express my opinions with anyone. My fella mentioned ...
  5. Bill Nye the Science Guy

    One of the shows I watched as a kid with great enthusiasm, I couldn't help but be strangely attracted to Bill, even as a...7 year old? BILL BILL BILL BILL!

    Anyway, I was reminded of Bill Nye after watching this video of Head Rush, a new show being hosted by the hot redhead from Mythbusters; Kari Byron. The show is aimed at kids, but I'm going to try to catch it on the air. I hope there is still enough curiosity or general thirst for knowledge ...

  6. five faces of darkness

    We all have personal flaws. Even here on TNL where people act like they are the life breath of the Gods.

    I'm pretty aware of mine, though it might not seem like it. One that really bothers me is that I do not live my life in such way that is fulfilling to me on a daily basis. I am living in such a way that things will work out in the long term. Despite what some might say, I am intelligent. I am pursuing things that will bring me a job and about as much security as an educated ...
  7. Fixies SUCK!

    by , 19 Aug 2010 at 09:01 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    Why do people hate fixies so much but give single speed bikes a free pass? Why are hipsters associated with fixies, when there are enough purple bikes with neon-green Deep-V with gold freewheel hubs to completely disassociate hipsters with fixed gears? Mostly it's people being ignorant. It's fun to be a dumbass when everyone else is doing it, but sometimes... sometimes... don't you wish you had something you could care about without everyone making fun of it? If you don't want to be a stupid asshole, ...
  8. cool story bro - Chapter III

    Once in a while, my Mom would like to take my sister and me to downtown Chicago for a day about the loop. Usually this meant going to a few stores, a museum of some kind (usually the Art Institute), then meet up with my Dad after he got off of work to go eat at Uno's Pizza or some other restaurant.

    I was in my early teen years on the day of this particular visit, and at that time I always had a Walkman on me to play some tape of common rock songs which I probably would just as soon ...
  9. Standing Still

    I'm tired of not going anywhere. I realized a few months ago I'm at a complete standstill in life. I've had little opportunity to move to anything else. With more seasoned pros competing for jobs suited for people my age, it's harder to find something to move to in my field. And it's aggravating.

    I don't know how people can sit still in one place long enough and be content. It's impossible for me to remain happy in the same situation. At first I thought there was something wrong ...
  10. The Customer is ALWAYS an Asshole

    "How are you doing today?" Guy is dressed nice and offers the first greeting. This should go well!
    "Fine! Is there anything I can help you find or any questions I can answer?"
    "Yeah, how much can I get for this game?" Whips out a PS3 Modern Warfare 2. I open it and check out the disc.
    "You're looking at $20 cash or $25 store credit."
    "Can't you make it $25 cash? I need to go to the DMV and..." Why do people think I give ...

  11. Big fish in a little pond

    It really isn't hard to know if you are intelligent in the south. You tend to stick out like a dragqueen with her hair on fire.

    case in point, this is a real tv ad in MS.

  12. US Tax News - 20100805

    So this just happened - IRS Removes Debt Indicator for 2011 Tax Filing Season.

    Here are corporate responses to this news by H&R Block and Jackson Hewitt. Stock prices in both companies fell as a result of this news.

    When individual tax returns are electronically filed, they are acknowledged in a data set which also includes the so called Debt Indicator. If the taxpayer has outstanding amounts owed to a Federal or State agency - for anything from back taxes to unpaid ...

  13. chocolate

    chocolate is pretty awesome

    Germany had good chocolate, and so did England. I also had some swiss chocolate while in germany. Nice stuff.

    I don't buy into the foriegn chocolate being better thing. Hershey's are pretty good, when fresh. And so are mallocups. I think the major problems with American chocolate is the fact that so much of it is not fresh. Stores get a ton of it in bulk, and then leave it in a storage room for forever. Or they buy those huge predecorated ...
  14. In which I bitch about the lack of customer service....oh, iPhones.

    I decided after a lot of late night article reading and youtube comparison videos - i wanted to get an iPhone 4. My current cell phone plan will run out in a few weeks, so I figured I'd take the plunge and get one of these newfangled smartphones. I know there's lots of smartphones out there, however, I am a 25 year old girl and apple enjoys marketing to me. Coincidentally, the boyfriend hates his shitty month to month current phone/plan, so we both decided, "hey! let's go down to the at&t ...
  15. Rules 1 & 2

    I support them, much like the US supported the Taliban in the 80's. Now, I do not condone 2/3 of the shit they do -- a minority of the raids, the daily CP that is part of that life -- but I deal with it for the genuine no-punches-pulled humor and the words inserted into our collective lexicon in trade.

    In fact, I can't imagine a world world without them. It's like a boom town in the wild west and Anon is the mafia is running the show! But no matter how much the outside world portray ...
