I (HEART) Tropical Storm Fay


Posted by Eric on Tuesday, August 19th, 2008 in Rants

I wish it was a tropical storm every day. Nice, cool weather; empty parking lots; and best of all: NO TRAFFIC! I didn’t have to touch my cruise control the entire way to work this morning. So not only do I reap the benefits of no zombies around, but I also get to enjoy a psychedelic experience from the radar animations on any and all news sites imaginable.


Ooooooh pretty colors!

News Flash: Phelps destroys my calorie intake with energy drinks alone


Posted by Eric on Thursday, August 14th, 2008 in News

Michael Phelps is my hero. No, not because he’s won eleven gold medals, but because he has the calorie intake that would make a normal person obese in about 57 hours. A mere 12,000 calories and a five hour, six day workout regimen is all it takes to be an Olympic champion. That’s easy! All I have to do is have an eight course dinner five times a day and I’d be set. The energy drink this guy consumes at lunch has more calories than my entire day when I’m in graze mode! WTF!

Apparently you need a mouth like a grunt-fish too. I bet this kid puts sharks to shame. If a shark tried to race this guy, the shark would shit himself and then proceed to self-consumption starting with his tail until he imploded, leaving a watery cloud of blood, guts, and shark shit in Phelps’ wake. Good grief! Who would want to race this guy?! God forbid if it was a country that severely looked down upon the loss of an Olympic event. There’d be a lot of dead swimmers in a couple weeks...

Quiklist: 5 steps to becoming a better bitch

I. Know less roman numerals

It’s quite an easy system. There’s only seven characters for crying out loud... I’m not going to teach them to you though, so you came to the wrong place if you’re wanting to get your learn on.


That’s ‘Final Fantasy Ten 2′, not ‘X2′, ass...

NiGHTS disc label and cover insert set


Posted by Eric on Monday, August 11th, 2008 in Art / Gaming Life

Wow. What a total failure on my part to keep this thing up to date! I’ve been busting my ass at work and during most of my free I’ve been working on the following:

NiGHTS Into Dreams Sega Saturn CD Label

NiGHTS Into Dreams Slim DVD Insert

I’ll probably end up changing the disc at some point because it uses NiGHTS from the Wii version. ...Yeah a review on that one will be here shortly. Enjoy!
