Failed

Okay, the Monster Squad thing failed miserably, so I made an executive decision and deleted it. I'm typically opposed to flat out deleting things that you've written, since you never know when you might want to dig back though it, and surely it can't all be bad. Still, I was not happy with any of the last three updates, and I think I'll live.

I guess the question now is what next? Sadly, I have no idea right now.

Squares

I meant to write something clever tonight, but ended up playing Picross for a few hours because I am lame. For those who have never played Picross before, it is the best thing ever. There are plenty of web-based Picross sites out there if you want to give it a try; here is a decent place to start if you don't feel like Googling it yourself.

Next up will be a tribute to The Monster Squad, one of the Top 10 greatest little-kids-versus-monsters movies of 1987.

The Dark West

Today I was in Best Buy, looking at some movies, when I realized that they had re-released the 1966 Batman movie, I guess in an attempt to cash in on the newest film. However, I think they may have misled the consumers a bit with the DVD case. For a point of reference, here is the original DVD case from when I bought it a few years ago:



And here is the new case:



Not only does the front try to copy the mood of the newer films, but the back shows Adam West Batman standing menacingly (as menacingly as Adam West can be) in front of a darkened cityscape, as if he is prepared to beat crime's face in. People are going to be disappointed when they buy this, thinking Adam West is going to jump out of the shadows and throw people against walls without sound effects. Of course, this disappointment may fade away once they see that 1966 Batman can take on fucking sharks.

Stuff

Lame update for now. I'm still screwing with stuff in the background, which has no bearing on what you see so far. I'm working on it though, so hopefully I can clean this default page up a bit. In the meantime, here is a cat picture, since they are so popular these days.



I was about to resize that picture to make it smaller, but nah.

What Else Could Ever Happen Today???

So I wanted to do some stuff on the site, but ended up being distracted by digging through boxes and looking on Wikipedia. That was not as productive as I apparently thought it would be. So, yeah. I do have some plans for this place, including making the entire layout a little less of a generic Blogger template, but I guess finding the time and not being lazy will be the hard part. In the meantime, I found a picture!



I made this a while ago in honor of Zoo Race, the greatest Christian video game of all time. You can check out its website here, which contains the fantastic intro video on the front page. Please prepare to have your mind blown in all the right ways.

Seriously, though, can you really fault a game that has this as its CD art?


I think not.

Intro

This is the standard test post. This is pretty much the first update since I bought this domain name. More to come!
