Thoughts on blogging

Through one form or another, I’ve maintained this site for almost a decade. For this entire duration, I’ve used many names for my blog, and I’ve even switched platforms once or twice. However, what never has changed is that it continues to be active and survives to this day. When I started writing, I was […]

Autumn 2013

Lo and behold, another few months have almost come and gone. Here’s some snippets of my life. Dumb and Dumber Soundtrack I assembled a list of the Dumb and Dumber movie soundtrack on Google Play. This makes me incredibly happy. And embarrassed. But mostly happy. Washington Football I’m sick and tired of losing to Oregon. […]

End-All Be-All Best of SciFi TV shows: the list!

It’s no exaggeration that I’ve always watched a lot of Science Fiction television. A. Lot. Of. SciFi. It’s a genre that’s perfectly made for nerds: an emphasis on technology, a vision of the future, and exploration of space. With lower-budgets than most productions, action is usually minimized and a greater emphasis is placed on storytelling and good writing.  What follows […]

MiG-25: Sovietest of the Soviet

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 It’s big. It’s fast. It’s the apex of mid-1960s Soviet interceptor technology. It’s the MiG-25 Foxbat. Capable of sustained Mach 2.5 flight, this heavy interceptor could be pushed to over Mach 3.2 with the risk of permanently melting its turbines. Made in response to the rising speed of American strategic bombers, and before […]

Group One Reports Enemy Contact

As I just wrote about, Homeworld is one of my favorite games for a multitude of reasons. Another aspect that makes this piece memorable is the voice acting of your Mothership, which is handled by the Canadian folk singer Heidi Ernest of the band The Western Investor. She provides a calming voice with a hint of ever present loss and the […]

This is something I wrote a while back, but never got around to publishing. Homeworld is a masterpiece. A truly 3-D space real time strategy game, Homeworld deftly wove a compelling story while smartly relying on one of the best soundtracks ever made and beautiful ship designs. I’m not even sure I could possibly tell […]

Moving away from Pike/Pine

I usually get pretty sentimental when I’m moving out of a residence. Apartments inherently private spaces that are odd in that once we move out of them, we’re rarely ever going to go back inside to reminisce or see how it has changed since we’ve been gone. Our two distinct paths suddenly collide, we move in to the building, […]

Lucy the Dog

Every day, for as long as I can remember, my mom went out in the morning to walk the dog. She took Lucy the dog for a walk last Friday, went to work, and we haven’t seen her since. Lucy was an elderly dog, had trouble walking, and we don’t hold out much hope of […]
