Comics are dumb


I know, we’re geeks, we like comics. But man, reading about them just makes me feel bad.  I ended up on Wikipedia today, looking for Mr. Mxyzptlk information, and ended up reading the summary.  And it’s awful.  So much bizarreness.  My favorite lines follow:

Ada Lovelace day


Today is Ada Lovelace day.  Presumably it’s her birthday, which is why it’s her day.  I’m too lazy to google it. Ada Lovelace was, arguably, the first programmer.  She wrote the algorithms that Babbage’s difference engine ran on. The day is being used to promote/celebrate women in technology and such.  Which is good.  But it […]

Gadget Lust


Okay, I finally get it. Until now, I’ve never really had gadget lust. I’ve liked some stuff, but there’s never been anything I’ve wanted to hug and pet. I like my 360 and my laptop, but that’s really because I play games on them. Now I have a Droid. Perhaps iPhone users feel this way, […]

Speaking of cheese


So I’m testing out the WordPress app for iPhone, and figured this tidbit was as good as any to share in the process. While looking at box office totals for each year of the 80s to jog my memory, I found myself struck by the top 6 films of 1981. The first 5, in order: […]

MMockery 3: The last easy post


And here’s part 3, which is the last of the parts.  It’s even more specifically related to MxO.  And also the last of my gimmie posts.  If I’m gonna hit my “3 posts a week” metric, I’m gonna have to start being original now.  Bugger. This one was written 2 months after the others.  In […]

Vintage? Or archaic?


“You see, this profession is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who thought their ass would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don’t.” Marsellus Wallace, Pulp Fiction Marsellus is talking about boxers in the above quote, but he […]

Mmockery: MxO: The coloning


As threatened, part 2.  Reading Part 1 is recommended but not required.  This one was written a week later.  It’s far more directly related to MxO. When last we left Firbolg, he was standing over a body, rummaging its pockets for stuff. Things haven’t changed a lot in a week. More bodies, more rummaging, and […]

Stealing ideas (aka MMockery, a play on MMO and Mockery)


A sort of in-characterish send up of an MMO, or another game, or what have you. It’s not strictly in character – it’s more me editorializing about it, and imagining things about the character in game.
