When Sense Becomes Nonsense

I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later. You can’t wallow in the mud without getting any on you, and being mistaken for other pigs in the pen. Which has happened to The Rusty Nail.  After spending years of watching and reporting their antics, Rusty has been developing some of the same symptoms:…

The Yearly Shedding of the Skin

So I turn 44 today. Hard to believe I’ve made it this far, really. I look in the mirror and see a middle aged man, losing hair and gaining weight. A few more wrinkles, a couple of extra aches and pains, but my mind still says I’m 19. Well, in all honesty my mind was…

The Politics of Writing

Or, more accurately, making your political beliefs known on messageboards. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now; how easy it is to read a political thread (whether it’s on SL, Odark, Tomo’s or really any board on the web) and add your opinion while questioning the species  of someone’s mother.  These threads get heated,…

La Femme Nikita’s Return…

We all knew it was bound to happen sooner or later; you can’t keep a good nitwit down for long-at least not on the interwebz.  Nikita has a new blog post up, and really the first sentence sums it all up: Those of you who are adding to the stigma that I can’t do anything…

Matt Gets Snippy

Philhasbeen, posted a thread on SL about accepting submissions for Chimera World-dealing with-hold onto your hats-the NWO. As no one was taking thebait about submissions he bumped it with more NWO prattle. This prompted me to respond, with one word: Yawn. That was it, nothing snide, or rude. A simple word to express the fact…

Things That Made Me Smile This Year

Everyone has their best of lists, favorites lists, etc, and frankly I haven’t played enough games or seen enough movies to make a 10 best list; instead this is a buffet (since no one says smorgrasbord anymore) of things that made me smile. 13th Star – Fish This got a deluxe early release in September…
