This is another one of those Facebook memes that's going around (they seemed to take a powder for a little while, or at least nobody deigned to include me). When I was tagged in this meme, I said to myself "Self," (because I always address myself), "why not post this to your blog instead of Facebook? She reads the blog anyway, thus fulfilling the contractual Facebook obligations of responding to these memes" (it's signed in blood...didn't you realize that's what they were doing when you felt that prick on your finger the first time you logged in?)The Rules - Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors, poets included, who've influenced you and will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag at least fifteen friends, including me, because I am interested in seeing what authors my friends choose.Ok, I won't be tagging anybody specifically, but any of you who are reading this must respond!!! You....cannot.....resist.....
As most of you already know, actor Leslie Nielsen died yesterday at the age of 84. I honestly didn't even know that he'd been ill, but I don't really keep up with a lot of the celebrity gossip, and Nielsen wasn't usually found in those pages anyway.
Recently, there has been some gnashing of teeth about the frequency some people post blogs.
There are a *lot* of Black Ops blogs out there, saying a lot of things I could already say (and I'm sure lots that I would disagree with too).
I've never really been much of a "platformer" gamer. I never played the various Mario games; Donkey Kong was enjoyable at the time, but I hold no real fond memories of it other than as just one of the many coin-op games I played as a kid.
I've seen a lot of Call of Duty articles recently due to the recent launch of Black Ops (I haven't read that many, but I've seen them).
It's November 11. Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day, depending on where you live.
Do people really remember what this day is for?
I hope they do. This is the day where we remember the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have fought to preserve our freedom. Those who ha
I was playing this one level of Splosion Man last night (yes, I downloaded it, and yes, it is an awesome platformer...review to come when I'm finished).
There's been a lot of tension in the GI blogging community over the last few days. While I don't have a lot to say about it, I do have something, so I thought I'd do a "items too small for their own blog posts" post, for your reading pleasure (or displeasure, or indifference).
I wasn't sure about the new XBLA game, Comic Jumper, put out by Twisted Pixel. A quick download of the trail version, however, quickly put that uneasiness to rest. It was funny, had some good side-scrolling action, and gave me that old-style arcade game feel (except updated).
This is for the old folks here, though the rest of you can take part too (see below).
Those who have been following this blog know that I'm not an Activision-hater. In fact, I've come to its defense a few times. Somebody complaining about CoD being run into the ground? I'm there defending it. Complaints about Bobby Kotick's latest news-making statements? Ok, I'm not always there, but I do occasionally point out when he's been taken out of context.
