Gibberish Changes in 2014

Gibberish Changes in 2014

I’ve been really lucky this year to have the opportunity to write more frequently. I attribute part of this to the support I receive from Sedagive?, giving up StarCraft 2 and the jobs I’ve been taking lately, including my current full-time job. My quality of life has been on the rise, and I hope it […]

Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2013

I wrote 66 product reviews this year, just one shy of my record. I made a concerted effort to diversify my reviews this year, and I covered music, games, movies, fitness gear and methodologies, household appliances, survival and preparedness items and a few guns along the way. At the end of they year I like […]

Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

I was one of the lucky 100,000 to get in on the Cards Against Humanity 12 Days of Bullshit promotion this year. The promotion was $12, and they sent me (or tried to send me) one day for every day leading up to Christmas. Of course, the USPS fucked it up, but hey, CAH tried. […]

Ascension Online beta is devastatingly ugly

I supported the Ascension Online Kickstarter in February of this year and I have been impatiently waiting ever since. There were delays in getting the Windows client out before the end of the year, and the Android version (the real reason I kicked the project) wasn’t coming out this year at all. With just five […]

Holy shit! Christmas is almost here and you: a) don’t have a gift yet for a friend who plays games b) don’t want to hear your dumb fuck family members arguing about Obama and Fox and “gay rats” and “white male privilege” any more c) want to help defray my cost of running this site […]

Gunshot Wound Emergency Trauma Class

Gunshot Wound Emergency Trauma Class

Sedagive? and I recently attended a beginner class on treating a gunshot wound in the case of emergency. We were interested in this subject for a long time, but training wasn’t available in Minnesota until this year. I’ve done some reading and own a book on “field expedient” trauma care, but it’s not the same […]

Two weeks ago, Sedagive? and I started the 10,000 kettlebell swing challenge. And by started, I mean did 200 swings and called it a day.

In February of this year I backed the Ascension Online Kickstarter project, which sought to bring the card game Ascension to Windows and Android devices. The product was supposed to ship before the end of this year: By backing this project, you can finally answer the question that has confounded scholars for ages—“When is Ascension […]
