I find myself quite in the same situation I have been for several weeks now; sitting in front of my laptop, on the WordPress website with “Add New Post” at the top of the page while I do little more than stare at the screen. None of you were forgotten, despite my apparent absence; I […]

Counting Down to The Hobbit, Part 2: Faramir and Fangorn

December 13, 2012

Following up with my Lego Lord of the Rings trek through Middle Earth prior to the December 14th release of The Hobbit, I decided to revisit the Two Towers and finally getting around the building Battle of Helm’s Deep.

“Vita La Revolucion!” : The Hands On Approach

December 3, 2012

I think any gamer nerd worth a hill of beans was at least mildly interested in the Sony Vita or at least they damn well should be. Let’s face it; we are under attack from a most formidable foe… casual gamers. They muck up “gamer” statistics with their OCD Farmville playing and Angry Bird slinging. I don’t […]
