Serial Spider-Insanity

With the popularity of The Comics Curmudgeon, one thing that people have realized is that the traditional “Funny” comic strips you see in newspapers aren’t really that funny at all. For the real wackiness, you actually have to look at the daily “serial strips” that try to tell an ongoing plot. It seems counter-intuitive, but …

But…Today Isn’t Tuesday.

Yep. We’re two weeks away from MAGFest, and it’s time for me to start to work on the challenges once again. I had started this, but then got distracted by Rock Band 2. Kareshi has apparently not been practicing as hard as he did last year. While this is good for me in an individual …

Woo-hoo, I Live!

Yeah, not a lot to say here. Now that my Endless Setlist odyssey is done, it’s time to get back to practicing the MAGFest Challenges. And that’s pretty much it.

Funny Censorship is Funny

Rock Band 2 has a lot of songs. One of those songs is “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette, her rather bitter, sarcastic ode to Uncle Joey of Full House (Which is a bit creepy in itself; Dave Coulier is about 15 years older than Morissette is). Given its subject matter, it’s not surprising that …

Random Tuesday Thoughts Wises Fwom its Gwave

Woo-hoo! I decided that, in my Rock Band 2 playing frenzy, I’m going to attempt the Endless Setlist 2 on Expert Vocals on December 8th, which is a little less than 2 weeks from now. I have that day off, so it’s as good a day as any. For those of you who don’t know, …
