I hate Zelda.

Him and his stupid pony.

Why can’t he do anything right?

He can’t fish, he can’t swim properly, he can’t throw far enough, he can’t herd a cat, he can’t find an empty bottle, he can’t open a locked door, he can’t talk to the mayor’s wife, he can’t beat the monkey, he can’t solve a damn thing.  All he can do is catch goats and the townsfolk will soon start to tease me I mean him about that.

Stupid elf. Stupid game. Stupid.

On the other hand, I love the Wii.  I hesitate to rave about it too much, because my TiVo will overhear and get jealous.  And really, the TiVo changed my life, whereas the Wii has not (yet).  But if you have appendages and a sense of humor, you should play the Wii.


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?







Best post I read today.

You are fun.

Ladies, ladies, please! I'm a happily married man, however virile I might otherwise be.

Wait, do I mean puerile? I gotta go look it up in the dictionary.

Oh wow, this dictionary has bad words in it. fart. heh heh heh.

Zelda take a bit of getting used to, but it's the best game on the Wii right now though the Wario one is supposed to be hot.

Also do you still have TiVo or are you using it in the Band-Aid manner, as a general name for all PVR devices because unless I'm wrong it doesn't work in Canada without loads of hacking.

I do still have Tivo, and it works just fine in Canada and has for about a year, +-.
