And When the Nerdy Dust Settles On the Geeky Plain, Who Stands?

Matt Armstrong

In the past two weeks my 360 has slowly been descending into the tell tale signs of hardware failure. It keeps sneaking off to climb under the porch and die alone, but I snatch it back. I caught it eating grass in the backyard the other day as I was ...

We Gon' Make Love.

Matt Armstrong

I recently went totally fucking crazy and renewed my Netflix subscription, and then went double crazy and plugged my Xbox 360 into it. I had canceled my subscription before, because I was simply running out of movies to watch. I was single at the time and was rifling through 1-2 ...

Societal Collapse Worked For Me!

Matt Armstrong

http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Feb/19/Yay_Fallout__.jpgSo I've been playing a lot of Fallout 3 lately, and the thing that I've been struck by is just how romantic it is.

Everything Is Going To Be Okay, I Promise.

Matt Armstrong

So I voted today, giving in after I realized that you didn't have to mail your ballot back and forth; just walk in, verify that you are registered, fill in the bubbles and drop it in the box. Two years of pressure melted off immediately. At this point, there's nothing ...

It's a Close Race, Huh?

Matt Armstrong

This is stunning, just stunning. Let's just look at the rally attendance numbers, from two recent appearances by both candidates. Remember, it's hard to get an accurate count in crowd situations like this, so take it for what it's worth. Counts via ABC news, Kansas City Star, Anchorage Daily News, ...
