Worst gift possible to give to someone with an eating disorder.
Listen to the first new Saturday Looks Good to Me album 4 years.
I have so much emotion attached to this band/release. I have spent all day thinking about where I was when the last album came out and how different my life is now.
Fred gave me one of these on marbled vinyl when I saw them in Ann arbor last month. Can’t wait to see them Friday!
When Aisha Tyler was selected to be the presenter for the 2012 Ubisoft E3 press conference, she received an unprecedented flood of hate from trolls who complained about the fact that she knew nothing about gaming. Too bad haters didn’t do their homework first, because as it turns out Aisha Tyler knows more about gaming that all of us put together. Her Facebook response was awesome and predictably went viral. In case you missed it, here’s her masterpiece. Haters, take note.
I’ve played since I was a little kid.
Since I begged my dad to buy me a Nintendo LCD Donkey Kong, Jr.
Since I blew through three weeks’ allowance playing Defender at the laundromat.
Since you were a twinge in the left side of your daddy’s underoos.
I’ve been a gamer since I made friends with a girl in the 5th grade just to get at her Atari.
Since I missed the bus playing Galaga after school.
Since I missed the start of Return of the Jedi playing Tempest in the theater lobby.
You think you know. You don’t know.
I’ve been a gamer since before you could read.
Since I aced midterms after staying up all night playing Evil Tetris.
Since I became dorm champ at Leisure Suit Larry.
Since I double-wielded on Time Crisis 3 at Fuddrucker’s.
I was a voice in not one, but two major video game titles.
I hosted the Reach Beta tutorial.
I was a Gears of War superfan panelist at ComicCon.
I hosted the Ubisoft presser at E3 2012.
I didn’t do any of it for the money.
For most I got paid next to nothing, and for some, less than that.
I did it because I love video games.
Because I’ve dreamt since I was a kid of being in one of the games I love.
How many games have you done voices for?
How many cons have you repped at?
Your buddy’s Unreal Tournament garage deathmatch doesn’t count.
I go to E3 each year because I love video games.
Because new titles still get me high.
Because I still love getting swag.
Love wearing my gamer pride on my sleeve.
People ask me what console I play.
Motherfucker, ALL of them.
I get invited to E3 because real gamers know I’m a gamer.
I don’t do it for the money.
I have plenty of money.
I don’t do it for the fame.
I do it because I love video games.
I don’t give out my gamertag because I don’t want a mess of noob jackholes lining up
to assassinate me on XBL.
I don’t give a shit what you think about my gamerscore.
I don’t play to prove a point.
I don’t play to be the best.
I play because I love it.
I’ve been playing my whole life.
I’m not ashamed of it.
I don’t apologize for it.
It’s who I am.
To the core.
I’m a gamer.
So to all the haters out there who claim I don’t play;
To the GAF dicks,
To every illiterate racist douchebag on Youtube:
Flame away. Go nuts.
Post every jackass comment your heart desires.
I’ll still be playing when your mom’s kicked you out of her basement
and you have to sell your old-ass console
and get a real job.
For now, I say to you respectfully,
and I mean this from the bottom of my heart,
wow i love aisha tyler more than ever now
I’d like someone to write a missed connection about me.

Meeting someone, falling for them and everything that follows is amazing, that’s why we live life, work jobs, play shows or whatever, to find and pursue these relationships.
Currently I can’t remember the last time I felt more engaged with someone, nor can I remember being so utterly fulfilled.
The problem with dating people you connect with on such a deep level is that relationships end and one day you can no longer be friends with that amazing person due to all the effed up things that can happen in a relationship, particularly when you have a trauma filled history and suffer from depression.
I have a modest proposal, a reset button with which you can restart one friendship and it takes away all the awful/wonderful feelings that were tied to the romantic aspect of that relationship. The catch is you can only use it once in your life time.
Would the strategy be to wait till you are like 40 or 50 to make sure you picked the right one? Or just use it when you are certain?
Who would you use your reset with?
Spotted at Dag House last night.
I mean, come on, what sign lures me to open a stranger’s closed door more? luckily I restrained myself
Just realized this was a walking dead reference!
There is something that feels really misogynist about me asking my cat why she is so angry all the time. And couldn’t she try to be more pleasant to spend time with?
Dr. Girlfriend, reppin that angry cat lean.
