It’s vacation time. Go eat too much.
Watching Wednesday #28 – Weird, Wacky n Wonderful
Thank goodness for these cartoon streams that aren’t Rick and Morty.
I forgot how many fascinating things the crew of Ed, Edd n Eddy did during the first few seasons. What passed for randomness as a child is now a testament to the creativity possible in every medium.
Monotony Monday #28 – More Man than Manus
I wasn’t joking about being consumed by the Abyss. This is such a good boss fight and this track is just so heartbreaking.
Fun Fridayz #Souls – Dark Souls
I finally managed to make it to the Artorias of the Abyss DLC after 112 hours in Dark Souls and I need to go back to the Abyss now.
Watching Wednesday #27 – WHATEVS
I am so happy I’ve seen this clip on like three different subreddits. That’s all.
Monotony Monday #27 – More Mainstream
Without Warning Works Without Waning
The short of it: A short tape (is it really an album?) with sure hits.
Note: This is link is probably going to go down soon. It’s a Google away anyway.
Look, all I can really say is I audibly moaned at the harmonies on “Rap Saved Me.”
Fun Fridayz #26 – FFFFFFFFFFOR REALS
Watching Wednesday #26 – No.
Don’t even watch this. Even just five seconds is too much. It’s officially 2SPOOKY.
Note: I’m currently working overnights/quitting my job, so posting will be sporadic. Hurray!

Fun Fridayz #25 – Freedom to Forget Feelings
I don’t really have any puns to bust out for this one. Honestly, as much as I love Life is Strange and Before the Storm, they might be the most damaging thing to my gaming I’ve ever experienced. School and work were never this distracting.
These games just create this melancholy in me because I know nothing will ever compete with the way I feel while playing them. The journey is so powerful that it makes everything else feel almost fake. There’s this beautiful atmosphere that envelops you like a cold fall wind.
At least Before the Storm is doing its part in keeping my mood in tune with the weather. Episode one was great and a true surprise for its consistency and quality. Episode two just ramps it up, developing the characters and drama in preparation for whatever gut punches the finale will offer.
It really says something about the emotional investment a game produces when I’m genuinely fretting over the fact that I picked a beach towel instead of a pirate flag to cover a seat. Of course, the inability to quickly go back and redo a key decision is what makes choice-driven stories so powerful– or, in the case of the original Life is Strange, the subversion of the one choice mechanic makes every decision that much more impactful.
So yeah. The soundtrack continues to astonish, with Daughter once again knocking it out of the park. The story is fascinating and the mysteries confounding, the characters human and mostly decently acted. God. I just can’t wait for this game to ruin me.
