Why does literally everything feel and seem more fun in FF14 as a Lalafell? I really should have tried this sooner. Every single time my character does an emote of some sort I start giggling. And I sound straight up like Teemo from League of Legends.

 
 

I just realized today that I've somehow miscalculated my own goddamn age. I kept thinking I was turning 40 soon, but I'm actually turning 39. Shit. Either way I feel physically like I'm 79 and mentally like I'm 29. This is a major fuck up, even for me.

 
 

GODDAMN! The new Obituary album is fucking brutal. I'm not too much into a lot of the over-produced death metal that gets released these days. But Obituary keeps it oldschool, can always rely on them. This is the kind of stuff I miss so much.

 
 

Is there a way for us to get notifications back somehow? It's made it a lot less interesting to take place in discussions when I can't really see any replies unless I dig through each individual post.

 
 

I got some new brushes today and I've been doing a lot of thinking. I think I'm going to try The Army Painter's Speedpaint line. Any of you more experienced model painters have opinions on these? I've been doing a lot of research, and I like what I see.

 
 

I've finally acquired and began work on the Kill Team I wanted from the start. (When I found out Leagues of Votann don't have official KT rules anyway.) Legionaries! This Balefire Acolyte looks great. He's gonna be fun to paint soon.


 
 

19 years ago to the day I started dating the woman who would eventually become the rock of my life, the mother of my children, and my wife. My person. This is the very first photo I ever took of her on that day, and kept in my wallet for years.


 
 

Destiny does it again. Another season, another awesome exotic weapon quest. This game does not get enough credit for it's raid/dungeon/quest design, seriously. This one is right up with the Dead Man's Tale quest in it's scope and breadth of puzzles.

 
 

Well, I got to thinking. What are my top 5 games of 2022 that I've actually played? 1: Elden Ring (Without a doubt, zero contest.) 2: Deep Rock Galactic 3: Evil Dead: The Game 4: TMNT: Shredder's Revenge 5: Tactics Ogre: Reborn

 
 

I played video games! I thought Elden Ring would have been my top game, but I forgot that Destiny 2 was actually good this year. My top 5 were Destiny 2, Elden Ring, CoD: MW2, Deep Rock Galactic, and Red Dead Redemption 2.


 
 

I don't use spotify and do most of my music listening the old fashioned analog way at home or in the car. But my most played artists and albums that I can recall will be posted all the same below.

 
 

I've been struggling to get together a competent Intercessor Kill Team together for a while now. I have very limited resources and for whatever reason, of all things, Space Marines are difficult to find for me. Looking for a bit of help or advice.

 
 

Well despite any technical short comings, I am greatly loving my time with Pokemon Violet now that I've been off of work long enough to actually play it! And it's the first Pokemon game in years to give me a legitimately difficult choice for my starter!

 
 

Tomorrow finally ends the 6 day straight open-close workathon crunchamania 2022. Then on Tuesday my wife goes in for what is hopefully her final back surgery. I'm gonna eat some trash and take a shit to celebrate.

 
 

Seeing the outrage against Adam Sessler's recent Twitter meltdown has me almost in tears with laughter. Both that it happened and how unsurprising it is - But also from some of the shit Adam said. Mom jokes abound...lmfao. This sounds like me at times.

 
 

So I'm broke and have to wait to finish my Chaos Marine Legionaries team until I can afford it. So instead my kill team will be Ork Kommandos. And they're awesome, but some of these pieces are really tough to glue together cleanly. And mold lines...ugh.


 
 

Well, here's my first attempt at painting a mini, ever. I practiced on a snap-fit Ultra Marine that came with a beginner magazine alongside a Necron. I'm pretty pleased even if I now realized I missed some details like the inside of the shoulders.


 
 

Happy birthday to what is very likely my absolute favorite album ever recorded. Every single track is an absolute banger from start to finish. Above the Weeping World was released on this day in 2006!

 
 

OK, so for those experienced. I need some tips on assembling my Warhammer minis. Never done any that weren't snap pieces. Don't wanna fuck up my expensive plastic here. Any of you folks mind helping a nub?

 
 

It's time! I've waited decades to finally start. I had literally hundreds of dollars in MTG trade and decided now was the time.


 
 

I guess sometimes being the weird kid in the corner who says a mixture of off the wall horseshit and outlandish takes on things has some benefits. No one wanted to post while body swapped with me. I was at work anyway and seemed to miss the fun.

 
 

Street Fighter 6 is nice. BUT, I HATE the "Modern" controls. And I hate that they're on by default and seemingly need to be changed for each individual character. That threw me for a loop before I realized I could switch to "Classic". Otherwise, love it.

 
 

I love the fact that Multiversus lets Rick be Rick and doesn't tone his bullshit down. If you haven't already, turn the Mature Language toggle on in the options menu to get the most of him. (Morty, Batman and Harley utilize it as well.)

 
 

I wrote all night last night. I haven't done that in years. Making some headway and think this thing might actually get finished next year. Just turned on some Deftones and cut loose. The goddamn writer's block might finally be over.

 
 

My new therapist has helped me a lot, she's good. She's also working on trying to get me a support dog. That'd be fantastic. But despite a better outlook, days like today happen. I just feel out of place and generally not great mentally.

 
 

As a Cyberpunk fan, of course I loved Edgerunners! My wife: I think I kind of hate Rebecca. Me: But she's the best character...


 
 

Went to the semi-local shop last night with my wife and we picked these up. I've wanted Blood Rage for a long time. My wife picked up Dead Men Tell No Tales. And we've got a game night lined up either this coming weekend or next!


 
 

I woke up today with a message by my friend Tabby telling me that she had some really bad news. A friend of ours passed away suddenly and unexpectedly today early in the morning. I'm still kind of in shock about it. He was only 31. (More below)

 
 

I love these videos! So happy to see more for Destiny too, with it's crazy ass magic/alien weaponry.

 
 

Haven't posted any music in a while for the few who bother to listen to stuff I share. So this one is for you. Possibly my favorite song of 2021.
