News and Culture

Current events, sports, technology, and all the other stuff out in the big, bright world that doesn't fit the first two categories.

  1. Plastic Fantastic

    I'm flat broke again and I need a better way to pass the time away than polishing off a lukewarm forty while listening to mp3s out of a tinny laptop speaker. It's another humid Saturday night in New York City and I've got shit to do but fool myself into being productive. Before I know it this weekend'll be over and I'll be back at the plantation before I know it.

  2. Recycling: Toy Story 3

    As a full grown man I was thinking about how there was no way I could watch this thing by myself.

I love a good video game every now and then but I also love having a place to live and a bed to share and good coffee to start every morning. Glancing at an issue of EGM or Play will always bring a rush of memories. The squandered paychecks and the joy of unwrapping a fresh new game. Inhaling the new plastic smell ...
