For the last few months my wife got us into watching the show Bones on Netflix, we're somewhere in the midst of season 6 and I still have mixed feelings about it.  It's one of those psuedo science shows like CSI that makes a reasonable effort to be intelligent so when it does misstep it's painful to behold but for the most part I think I like it but...

The main character is one of the least likeable characters I have ever seen ever.  She's billed as "socially awkward" and they try to play her off as quirky and endearing but she's really just an emotionally stunted self-centered bitch.  And that's me being nice about it.

The rest of the characters are all reasonably likeable though her boss (who was introduced in the second season) has degenerated from being a strong, no-nonsense type to making goofy faces and non sequiturs like a lost cheerleader which makes her attempts to assert authority now come across as laughable.  Which is a shame because even thought I didn't exactly like her character (the head of the institute in season 1 was better IMO) I could at least respect her.  Not sure how or when it happened but she's now a clown.

The show also falls victim to becoming one of the worst perpetrators of "magic computer syndrome" ever.

But all that being said, if you like a show that showcases a grisly murder in every episode and doesn't pull punches for the squeamish then it's pretty good.

I've been watching a ton of MST3K lately.  The last "real" movie I've seen is the Hobbit, Desolation of Smaug.  I would probably be able to get into these movies more if they hadn't strayed so ridiculously far from the source material.

I absolutely loved the game but felt that the main campaign sadly underused some mechanics (like etiquettes), and was too linear. But the modding tools released with the game gave me great hope for fan-made expansion of the game, I even think that this game is bound to be a classic if the mods are up to the par Smiley

There is some phenomenal UGC for Shadowruns.  I recently had to delete all of it and start over though.  Too much UGC installed at the same time was causing some serious stability problems with the game.

Cthulhu Saves the World, I really like the level up choices and find that the only way I can lose on Normal is if I'm randomly attacking or just dicking around. With a full party, everything that we fight dies. And the game's pretty funny, the dancing zombies almost reminds me of The Bard's Tale, which is narrated by the late Tony Jay (Megabyte, Frollo and that one guy from Beauty and the Beast!)

I loved Cthulhu saves the world.  Also check out Breath of Death VII and Penny Arcade episodes three and four (all done by the same guys.)  Penny Arcade episode three was phenomenal.

They totally had personalities.  The leapord spotted cory cat liked to play in the bubble stream and the betta would sit on the cory cats if he thought they were getting upitty.  They were all named after horror/comedy characters.  The betta was Ash (dark blue with a red stripe) and the cory cats were Tucker and Dale (albino was tucker and the spotted was Dale.)  Thanks TeeZee.

I finally got around to playing the Dragonfall expansion for Shadowrun Returns.  So far, as much as I loved the original campaign this one outshines it in every regard.  I have no idea why I dragged my feet about getting into this DLC.  It has a much stronger opening story hook and even early on it feels much less linear.  To top it off there is an honest to god team of Shadowrunners you run with which has already added much more depth to the interactions.  (I'm not getting along with the Orc heavy weapons chick even a little bit...)  

I also finally downloaded "Outlast."  I keep hearing it's scary on par with Amnesia the dark descent, I'll find out for myself shortly whether or not that's really true.  Amnesia is one of the few games I've played where I was truly afraid, not just jump-scared into a reaction, so the bar is set pretty high.

This morning I got home from work and all my fish were dead.  I have no idea how it happend or why but I've had the same three fish for over a year (a gorgeous full moon delta betta and two cory cats).  They were healthy and happy even a couple days ago because the cory's laid eggs and having a breeding pair is almost unheard of (usually they have to be in a much larger group to be well adjusted enough to breed.)  It's a mystery and it sucks.  It probably sounds stupid but I miss my fish.

Picking up the most recent volume of Fables from the library. The one before it, Cubs in Toyland, was one hell of a trip.

That's a shame about Season 2. Up to episode 4 and it looks like another long night where I go to bed at 6:30 AM after The Walking Dead. Didn't even feel tired when playing it throughout the night, only when I took my attention off it.
So emotionally invested and many times I felt the tears brimming in my eyes. It's just amazing and it would be tough to follow up on something of this calibur.

After this, definitely going for Sam & Max, stopped a bit after playing a bit of 301 but it's on my To-Do list now. That and Wallace & Gromit, loved the old shorts.

The Sam and Max games are solid gold, even Season 1 which despite having a slow start gained impressive momentum before the end.  And Season 2 of Walking Dead isn't bad by any means, it's just not Season 1.

It wasn't learned specifically today but very recently I learned that Amazon UK rocks.  I was going to buy "The World's End" soundtrack album and before I clicked buy I read the reviews and someone in the reviews suggested that anyone interested in buying the album would be better off going to the UK amazon (found at amazon.co.uk) because the UK version has TEN extra tracks on it that are left off the US version.  So I logged in at Amazon UK (with my same US login which was cool) and it automaticaly converts pounds to dollars for you and bam, my soundtrack is on its way.  I have the attention span of a squirrel on crack so I immediately forgot about it until today when I had an email from Amazon UK suggesting some things I might be interested in and sure enough, they kick ass again.  Check this out.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0030HG3K6/ref=pe_418581_48466891_em_4p_4_im  It ships from Florida and will cost me 19.50 US dollars (that includes the shipping)

The same "import" album on Amazon US. 

http://www.amazon.com/ORIGINAL-SERIES-SISTERS-Korean-Imported/dp/B00CH8DAP0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399093307&sr=8-1&keywords=sisters+of+mercy+original+album+series  Yea that's not a typo, it starts at 70 bucks.  Plus shipping. 

I had even priced the first three albums alone digitally (emusic) a while back and it would have been almost 25 bucks just to download them which I passed on.  But less than 20 for five real CDs?  Yes please.

Lesson learned, Amazon UK is the shiznit.

The Walking Dead Season 1

Wrapped up Episode 2: Starved for Help and this should have been one of the first games I installed on my new laptop. Only got around to it now and this was damn worth the Humble Bundle.
TLO's review of it on Steam helped out some.

Glad I could help.  So far Season two is at Episode 2 and I'm not feeling the same "hooks in deep, I have to see what happens next" that I did in Season 1 at this point.  Hopefully it tightens up again later.  Wolf among us on the other hand is fantastic.

I keep meaning to get back to New Vegas but Dead Money straight up sucked all the fun out of the game for me.

The Murblesaur returns!

EDIT: Also, is that a stealth Archie comics reference with the vending machine?

aerosol deodorant was never designed as deodorant.  It was designed to spray the fuck all over the place so you cannot have an excuse for offending your company.  Even the directions are obscure and run along the lines "Just hose yourself down.  Enjoy!"

Just don't kill yourself with it... don't look at me like that, it's totally happened.  More than once even.

I has assumed he was pretty much blackmailing her for a booty call.  Jasper has gained a level or two of respect here.
