Today, two of my closest friends, Pat Shanahan and Megan Sirois will be wed in what can only be described as glorious matrimony! May the day go splendidly, as the lovebirds are surrounded by friends and family. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness, you two! I love ya both.


The Crack in the Block

Needed to hit the slab one more time. I was tired and it showed. I couldn’t think about anything else. I needed to get through. Hammering away for what had seemed like eons and I had made little, if any, progress.
Yet for some reason, I felt like all I needed was one more solid hit. One more blow.
I swung my hammer with all of my might. It crashed into the wall in front of me with a loud cracking sound. The block appeared to be fine, except for a tiny fracture, where light was coming through. I pressed my face to it and peered through. There was wonder beyond this blockade. Vivid colors and enchanting forests. There were animals beyond count and people without equal. It was a world that was ripe for exploring.
I just needed to continue breaking through this Writer’s Block.

One of my good friends, Jesse Fearfield, is getting close to releasing his new musical album, but he needs help. Below is a link to his gofundme page. Consider donating something. He has a link to his newest single, “Forget” there as well. It’s pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. It would mean the world to him if you would even go listen to the song. Share it with your friends and family.
Thank you very much for taking the time to peek at the guy’s stuff. Not like that, you perv.

Frustrations with Microsoft

Hi, thanks for visiting Xbox Support! I’m Ellaine.




Hello there, how are you doing today aside from your concern?


I’m alright I suppose


I see.. good to know that, by the way, Just to make sure I’m getting the right concern here, you have a concern with regards to a disc game is that correct?


A multi disc game, Mass Effect 3, specifically
I wanted to play through the trilogy, in prep for the new one in March
They’re backwards compatible. so playing them on my Xbox One is awesome.


I see.. thanks for confirming Could you please tell me more about your concern so that i can address you the proper resolution regarding this concern.?

When it tells me to Insert Disc 2, it hangs until I eject disc one. When I insert disc 2, my xbox One doesn’t recognize the disc
I can’t play the game at all
Everything I’ve seen online tells me that this issue was fixed a year and a half ago, but my console didn’t get that memo
So if I could get some sort of fix, that would be lovely

I see.. thanks for elaborating your concern here, don’t worry i will provide you all the information and details you need that will help us in isolating this issue, i will do my best to help you with this.
Just a heads up, I may ask a lot of questions with regards to this concern so that we can identify the issue and for us to be able to provide you the right resolution regarding this matter, would that be okay with you?

Thanks you! by the way, may i know if you able to play other disc on another console?

I don’t have another console, so I have no idea
I can play Disc 1, but that’s not the full game

What about the other disc you have? were you able to try them and see and if they can be readable?

It doesn’t recognize it as the game.

Just to clarify, other disc game cant be recognize as well?

Just disc one.

I see.. please don’t mind me asking, do you have another disc game aside form your Mass Effect 3 game?

Not any with multiple discs
Just to clarify, no other disc is playable as well is that correct?

No, just the second disc. I can play every other disc, except the second disc of this specific game. I’m not sure if I can make this any more clear.

Okay! If we could begin, what console are you having issues with?

My Xbox One, as I have stated previously.

I see… Does any other game encounter this issue?

It was at this point that I closed the chat with this Microsoft employee, as I was going to throttle her with my mind.

Moored in Silence

On this day, seventy five years ago, the men and women of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, were attacked by the air force of the Empire of Japan.
Kamikaze pilots slammed into the naval ships and tore through the ranks of the US Navy. A surprise attack, at five minutes to eight in the morning, a horrific cacophony erupted.  For an impossibly long one hundred ten minutes, two-thousand three-hundred thirty-five people needlessly lost their lives, in what we’d come to call the American entrance to World War II.
As the ships sank into the depths, and the fires raged on, the attack was finished at a quarter to ten in the morning. The attack devastated the country, and thus thrust us headlong into a war with Japan.
Take a moment of silence, in memory of those who died on this fateful day. Let not their memories be moored in silence.

Trump Card

In lieu of the American Election results, I feel I should come forward and apologize.
No, I didn’t vote for him. But I feel like I have, because I didn’t do enough to stop him.
We, as a whole, failed the world by electing a human being that absolutely scares the ever living crap out of those with the ability to think. How could we be so blinded. How many of us said “There’s no way he can win. He’s outrageous!” He is a despicable human being.
Now he’s the leader of the most powerful country. We gave him our country on a silver platter.
I am so sorry. We shat the bed, now we must lie in it. Sorry you all have the smell.
When did we become so ignorant? Is this what we deserve? This election has been the most stressful that I have ever seen. I joked about it being like choosing Poisoned Food (Clinton) and A Gaping Head Wound (Trump). The worst part is that it may be over quickly. This is a man who talks nonchalantly about sexual assault as easily as he speaks about using nuclear ordinance in the Middle East. Whose ties with Vladimir Putin are no longer just a joke. This is an individual who will set the progress of the United States back 50 years. There’s going to be blood. It’s scary.
The best case scenario would be if he’s the most boring president. If he sits there and does nothing of any note. He said that he wants to be The People’s President. Yeah. You’re the amalgamation of fear and hatred. You’re the single patron saint of bigotry.
This sets a dangerous precedent for America. I used to be proud to be American  I’m ashamed of my countrymen. How could we let this happen?
I realize I am not the most politically savvy. I know I have the debating prowess of a rock. Maybe it won’t be as bad as it all seems.
Maybe this is how Democracy ends; With thunderous applause.
