SD Alternative

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Two cases in…

...to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, and I have to say that this game is AWESOME. XD Apollo Justice is the first "Phoenix Wright" game where you don't play as Phoenix Wright. But Wright does show up, and he is sooooo cool in his new "alternative" profession. I ...

State of the Media Consumer: Addendum

1. Drunken Scrabble is wicked fun. 2. I was going to post about Kekkaishi here but I just realized my notes are on the other computer. Next time! 3. Just a little bit tipsy right now because company and beer are over for the Michigan/Ohio State game. ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...
