Tapes

September 5, 2007

Remember audio tapes, a.k.a. audio cassettes? Let’s say you had a blank tape and you wanted to record something to it You had to manually line up the little clear leader bit of tape by turning the little wheel thingies with a pencil or something so that you didn’t miss the first part of what […]

Goddamn, It’s Hot!

August 31, 2007

I mean… damn! It’s literally 100 degrees out right now! We’re keeping relatively cool at home, but our little wall unit A/C thingy can only do so much on its own. We’re having the gang over tomorrow night for board games and beverages, so we’ll do our best to keep the place a reasonable temperature. […]

Deep Thoughts

August 22, 2007

In Chris’ ongoing saga of continuous posting, here is the Wednesday Edition. Last night, I came home from work and immediately went Raiding in World of Warcraft from 20:00 until 02:00. That’s six hours, folks. Afterwards, having realized that I’d spent my entire day in front of a computer, almost half of that wasted in […]

More Posts, You Say?

The Past

November 17, 2004

Sometimes I find myself thinking about the past. I guess it’s because I’m an “adult” now, so it’s more a feeling of things lost. Specifically I was thinking about old Super NES games like the Secret of Mana and the older Final Fantasy games. I remember playing through Secret of Mana with Matt and Ian […]

The People

November 4, 2004

Wow, folks. It seems that I get more of a response from people when I write about things that actually matter. Who’d a thought? Just to clarify a couple things from yesterday’s post, I don’t really hate George W. Bush as a person. I think he’s generally a good man who believes in what he’s […]

Four Years… Again

November 3, 2004

At the risk of offending some of my family and friends, I must say that I am not pleased with the outcome of the latest national election. I worry mostly about our foreign policy, our social programs, and how many Supreme Court Justices will be appointed for life over the next four years. I do […]
