Despite your recent donation, I still see you passing the buck off to Fox yet again. If the Jayne hat was pulled from ThinkGeek temporarily till this was worked out then Fox wouldn't have anything to complain about, would they? I see your solution as a PR stunt while trying to protect your profits. I not longer wish to spend anymore money funding you or your corporate overlords. Please remove me and all my information from your site.

Thank you
And account deleted. Hooray!

wow bug report

When mirror images are summoned they stop attacking after the current target is slain. They got out of range and stopped casting altogether during a bossfight yesterday in the Halls of Origination. Are they bored? Uninterested? It's very unusual behavior for them since they used to attack everything that moved, wanted to move or even though about moving. This has only occured since the last patch. Please give them the encouragement they need to properly get back in the game.

my reply to Roger Ebert (again)

I'm certain if you reviewed Manos The Hands of Fate (or nearly anything that MST3K covers) you wouldn't necessarily deem that 'Art' as well.

Video games, like all other forms of escapism and entertainment - see television and movies, can be good or bad depending on their plot, direction, acting, etc. Singling one out and saying they're all garbage would be like watching Manos and determining to not watch The Dark Knight.

And do they inspire? Gamers certainly talk about them, write their own fiction (which sometimes turns into disturbing best sellers, post fan art ( and remake the inspiring music ( So, I'd have to say yes.

Do they take skill to make? As much as a high end movie for some and for a small developing team for the independent games/movies for others.

Quite frankly, you still sound like a Jack Thompson caricature. After reading this article I feel relief that I mostly disagree with your opinions on movies as well. Thank you for enlightening me to your generational bias. If you, or your employer, has a professional reviewer that is perhaps younger and more open to newer forms of media, I would like to be informed of their opinions since they'd benefit me. But thank you for explaining to me that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, especially when they don't want to learn.

Don't go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and lakes that you're used to.

REdoing my computer this weekend and I got a little nostalgic for lj. There's really nothing else like this. We're not limited by characters or like buttons. It's really where expression comes out in length.

I guess I just get intimidated by it all, so that's why I hide. I have a hard time expressing myself. Baby steps, though. I'm bad at those too, but I'll just have to learn.
