I have a slew of joker cards I use for bookmarks (including one that has been my mainstay mark for more than ten years) but I may have found a new favorite.


 
 
 
 

Have you ever A. Eaten so much food that you need to lay down, B. Been stuck behind an elderly person while in a hurry, or C. Tried to unlock your phone with gloves on? If you answered "yes" to any, you've had as much fun as I just had with Evil Within 2.

 
 
 
 

This has been my train station for most of my life and I’m sort of just realizing how insane these window murals are.


 
 
 
 
 

Given these body-swapping shenanigans it feels appropriate to affirm oneself with a Self-Portraiture. Our projection booth bathroom has an I Saw the Devil poster because… in the bathroom, one meets the Devil.


 
 
 

It’s not my favorite meal*, to be honest, but we went out to our favorite little cafe to get ramen with friends for the first time in literal years. Pretty as a picture/fit for a Yakuza (Like a Dragon)!


 
 
 

Doing my intern work, going through archives, found some uh neat signed stuff


 
 
 

Can't believe I'm JUST finally seeing this! A Masaaki Yuasa short about an orphaned masked wrestler in love?? This is amazing!



 
 
 

Also of all the good giggles today my brother got me best.


 
 
 

Castlevania 64 walked so Lords of Shadow could... shamble. Jeez louise. ALSO IT NEEDS TO BE CALLED LORD OF SHADOWS. ONE LORD. MANY SHADOWS.


 
 
 

Seven years since Kojima dropped this on his way out the door… Still my favorite game trailer (ever?).



 
 
 

Finally bloody settling on playing System Shock 2 (it's very good; I'm very anxious and indecisive). Currently:


 
 
 

I, the solitary gamer, am craving a multiplayer FPS I can sink into casually… Any recs? I don’t currently have a (good) mic and am not always inclined to get chatty with teammates, which might seem counter to what I may suggest, but had these two in m


 
 
 

Continuing my recent western obsession playing Outlaws, which is really good! Just a quick run with cheats… But if I could find a big box of this for a good price I would FRAME IT.


 
 
 

Me diving through every closed window in Weird West.


 
 
 

So glad Nope is SO GOOD. Wasn’t a Get Out fan, big Us fan, and this was pure craft. Evidently Jordan Peele is an Evangelion fan. Projectionist’s view:


 
 
 

Porco Rosso turns 30 years old today and remains a stalwart fiber of my very being.


 
 
 

Grappling with the realization that, to my friends and colleagues, I am becoming recognizably known to be a JoJo fan.


 
 
 
 

Had some free time the other morning at work so I brought in something WARM to test some stuff in the theaters…


 
 
 

Frivolous question for those in the know: Is Kid Icarus Uprising worth ("worth" is so relative and personal, but bear with me) $80-90ish? I've sort of been struck by a real interest in it recently, and without a Switch port...


 
 


About Sam van der Meerone of us since 9:31 AM on 07.20.2012

Sam. Sir Shenanigans. Not your daddy's kind of stupid. Can't decide what's for dinner. Big fan of dolly shots in movies, Japanese sweet potatoes, Hellboy, Indian food, God Hand, and Herman Melville. A pig's gotta fly.
