Hi, Tumblr! Sorry I’m neglecting you. I remembered I had a wordpress. I’ll try to be more supportive of you from now on.
Considering how stressed I’ve been these past couple of weeks, I fear I have not been living up to my subtitle. For those not in the know (which is to say, none of you), I’m now in Seattle, working in Kent, trying to find an apartment, all while dealing with a car that decided to crap out on me at the end of my second day of work. It got “fixed”, by which I mean, jury...
So, I got a job. Well, according to my employers, Literacy*Americorps and the Multi-Service Center of Federal Way, it’s more of a calling, but I’m just trying to think of it as a job, so as to not go batshit crazy. I get overwhelmed by the future sometimes. However, it also means I might actually have things to start writing about. Let’s see how that works out, shall we? After...
Here’s a character analysis game for you: Google Chrome does a handy job of remembering what websites you visit often, even taking notes from text messaging and auto-filling in urls based on the first letter. Let’s alphabetize, and in the process, learn a little something about me. A: adultswim.com Well that makes sense. B: bestbuy.com A new addition. I was filling out job...
That’s a pun on “Vegan Police”. See, I usually title my entries with a terrible, terrible pun on my name. The Vegan Police in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, played excellently (and uncreditedly) by Thomas Jane and Clifton Collins Jr., are the the best random cameos in any movie of the past decade. Do you get it yet? Don’t worry if you don’t. It’s high comedy. I...
Are heart and hard sci-fi mutually exclusive? One word answer: Cocoon.– Steve Guttenberg
Keegfession No. 1
There is a fierce and dark temptation in me to turn every social network outlet at my disposal into nothing more than a series of Futurama quotes.
One thing I know about danger is that it’s mostly ghosts. I’m so worried about...– Seanbaby
That Sheezy Be Heavy
Job hunting has a detrimental effect on my writing, I’ve noticed. So does wanting to spend my free time (surprisingly precious as it is) reading Jasper Fforde novels. Thanks a lot, Emily. The other free time sucking devil boxes in my lives (a.k.a., the Xbox and the Playstaon) have had their say in the matter as well. The ‘box, in protest of my not turning it on in two months, decided...
Keegan Blackler's Precious Little Review
Because no one reads this who isn’t also a friend of mine on Facebook, you already know that last night I caved and read the first volume of the Scott Pilgrim series Bryan Lee O’Malley, titled Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life. My gut reaction is that for all of its attempts to create it, this series lacks energy. There is a dearth of it, even. Without color, and without...
Sometimes I get the urge to write about girls, and maybe even sex, but self-confidence issues tend to cripple me on both accounts! Thanks, not-entirely-but-still-sufficiently-repressive Christian upbringing! I’m fairly capable of talking about such things to people who aren’t directly affects (read: people I’m not attracted to), but oftentimes, especially now that I’m back...
This might come as a shocking revelation to my more gamer-oriented friends, but I’ve never beaten Final Fantasy VII. To the rest of you: I forgive your ambivalence. Come back next time when I write about the wines and spirits you inebriates so brazenly lust after, or what have you. (I make no promises to write about alcohol. I couldn’t do it to any appreciable degree, anyhow:...
He Got It For American Dad
Patrick Stewart was knighted yesterday. I… I think I believe again.
Ignore everything from that last… tumbl. This game has the most badass Bombs (a type of enemy) of any Final Fantasy. Here’s the classic, stupid look: And here’s the new version in all it’s polygonal majesty: Thus, it is conclusive: math is better than ugly.
Final Keegantasy XIII
Time to revive a classic (if painfully irritating) naming tradition. Wasn’t my idea, I don’t make the rules, etc., etc., deal with it, honkies. Part of the reason I tend to let my writing go by the wayside is that I have the tendency to get overwhelmed by the noise. Not actual noise—though, as my college roommates, who put up with me venting about the construction next to our...
So I just got back from dropping off two applications at OMSI (the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, for you ignorant heathens), one for visitor services, which would be alright, and one for planetarium presenter, which would be motherfucking radical with eight a’s. It’s the first time I’ve ever driven to OMSI of my own volition, which means it’s the first time...
Let's try this.
The fun thing about being in beta (or alpha, really) is that I can post whatever the hell I want and it doesn’t have to make sense/be funny/amuse you fuckers. Really, this is just to see what happens with this theme when I post a second entry.
Oh geez what am I doing.
I might not bee feeling tumblr as much as some people implied I would be feeling tumblr. Where’s this import feature?!
