I hate being such a sucker

I don't know if I'd call myself a gamer. I do enjoy playing the occasional video game. I'll buy games every so often if I've beaten an older game, but usually buy my games used, spending no more than 15 bucks a game). So though I might spend some time (all right I admit, if I find a game I like some time might turn into five hours straight) every so often playing a video game I don't do the whole MMORPG (second and third definitions down are the best) thing.

MMORPG's don't thrill me. I don't generally like talking with strangers on the internet (and I definitely don't like strangers in real life, let alone the internet), I don't like games that continue when I'm not playing, and I don't like playing video games with no definitive ending. I need to beat a game to make it feel like it was worthwhile and that my money was well spent. I play for that pseudo sense of accomplishment. MMORPG's just go on for ever and ever. Not my thing. Not a big enough dork to get into the whole role playing aspect of it. Well maybe I am a big enough dork, but a completely different type of dork.

What type of dork am I? I'm the type that even though I'm not really interested in MMORPG's I'm probably going to sign up and play this:

Behind the Scenes/Making of DC Universe Online

Because who in their right mind wouldn't want to be able to play in an open ended DC comic book universe.

Like I said, I'm a sucker.

hip, hip, and so forth

Today is my birthday.

Hooray me.

forget all those other things I wanted. What I really want now is one of these:

And here I thought Night At the Museum was just a really crappy Ben Stiller movie. Who knew it was real?

Really, who wouldn't want their own dinosaur?

Funny (even if misspelled - and if you've ever read my posts you surely can't blame him)

So my brother, along with some of his art school buddies have an art blog that they post on. It's mostly how they keep in touch with each other post college, and help critique each others works in progress. They do occasionally post some interesting stuff about comic book art and animation in general, so feel free to check it out if you desire.

I finally linked it in my list of links (been meaning to for a while). Since this is old stuff I figured I'd repost it here (until he tells me to take it down I guess) because I think it's funny .

He drew and wrote this himself and it makes me laugh every time I read it (and not because he misspelled "Scared").

And for some reason I can't seem to put the picture on this blog so I shall link to it directly. Please read and laugh.

It's been a while

I've been contemplating eating meat again. I've been a vegetarian for about fifteen years now, and the reasons that I started are a bit less compelling to me now. I've learned a lot about food in general and based on what I've learned I still don't want meat so much. If I were to stop being a vegetarian I'd probably eat meat so infrequently to make it a moot point. It's just I don't know if I really want to take such a strong dogmatic point about it in my life anymore.

For the time being I'm still a vegetarian, I'm just giving the notion a lot more thought than before. Only time will tell I suppose.
