What the Hell is going on??

I haven't been very active on this blog lately. It isn't that I don't have a lot to say, but more that the things I have to talk about, I don't want to talk about. This is certainly not the forum for those things. So, skipping over them, we'll get back to what really matters...

I recently saw a pretty good movie. You may have heard of it. Basically, it's a movie about a group of fantastically powerful heroes who, through acts of derring-do, battle for supremacy. That's right. I'm talking about Pirates: Band of Misfits. Wait...what did you think I was talking about? Avengers, you say? Yeah, that's most certainly the next movie I want to see...I just have not had the time to do so. Now that the crowds have probably thinned a bit I will venture out and most definitely see it.

Anyway, Pirates is claymation, done by the same dudes who created "Chicken Run" and all of the "Wallace and Gromit" episodes that I have not seen. So there's that.

This movie has it all--a plague ship, a ghost ship and a...dodo bird. Long story short--it's a very enjoyable family movie with plenty of humor. Five words: "Prepare to be boarded--NERDS!"

Diablo 3 comes out tomorrow and I suspect a lot of employers will have many employees calling in sick as they all log on en masse at 12:01 whatever their time zone and proceed to neglect all bodily functions for as long as they can, frantically clicking their poor mouse into a terrible oblivion from which there is no return. I will be one of those fools as soon as I get my copy (it is currently sitting in my state, hopefully en route to my house tomorrow). No, I'm not calling in sick. But I still plan on tearing through a few mice before all is said and done.

Lately I've been having a pretty ridiculous problem--too many video games to play. My backlog has gotten big enough to where it actually stresses me out a little, and I end up playing nothing. I am still playing games I've previously finished because I enjoy them so much. But I also have many games I've either barely touched or not at all. And there are other games on the horizon: Halo 4, Bioshock 3, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm...and Diablo 3 comes out tomorrow!! Did I mention that?


I still have three episodes of Archer to watch, two episodes of Game of Thrones: Season 1, and all of season 2. It really is a good thing I don't watch much normal TV.

This is a seriously awesome problem to have, I guess. But it isn't slowing down. And Steam...Steam, you keep providing me quality games at insanely low prices. Damn you! Damn you all to Hell!! Also you, you damn dirty apes!
