I'm participating in Extra Life again this year, 24 hours of gaming to help children in need.

PLEASE DONATE! Look below for the link to the donation page, and feel free to RSVP to this event for updates as things progress toward the event weekend. Even if you can only spare $5, it certainly adds up... if everyone in my initial invite list donated that much, my goal would be surpassed by over 50%. All donations are tax deductible, at least for those of you in the US, and all proceeds in my case go to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

http://www.extra-life.org/participant/140508

If you're not comfortable donating online, or can't for some other reason, cash donations are welcome if I'm likely to see you in person sometime this year. In that case, though, keep in mind that I can't give you a receipt for tax purposes.

If you'd like to help me out by spreading the word, feel free to share the link to this event page (that's one reason why it's public) or go even further and invite your friends directly.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Starting to build a list of games for the event:
Smite co-op (if any friends who play are up for it)
Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries
PS3 Sports Champions (need to get off my arse at some point)
Abyss Odyssey
Valiant Hearts: The Great War
Dragon Age (Origins replay or Inquisition)

Something from the BioShock series may make an appearance as well... not sure on that one yet.

You shouldn’t go near any aspect of the gaming industry as a woman or known woman sympathizer unless you want the rest of you life defined by threats.

The GOP seems to be the party of self-fulfilling prophecies these days. The ACA didn't come with "death panels", so they created their own in response on a state level.

For the latest example of this, I give you Alabama...
Alabama Justice Glenn Murdock and his colleagues could destroy the institution of marriage.

Absolutely brilliant.
 
Nice spin on the anti-vaxxer nonsense. #antivaxxer   #parody  
Guys, I wanted to let you know about a personal decision I recently made. I don’t really feel like discussing it, but I want to put my position out there. Please be respectful. This is a really long...

Three of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin's fantasy short stories will be coming to the big screen as a single movie titled In the Lost Lands. Milla Jovovich is in talks to star in the female-centric fantasy adventure, which will be directed by the Germany-born Constantin Werner.

If you cross-reference these people with GamerGaters, I wonder what you'd find. It's certainly the same attitude.
The Always #LikeAGirl commercial that aired during the Super Bowl was meant to empower young girls by inspiring people to use the phrase "like a girl" positively rather than as an insult.

First GamerGate, and now this. Glad to see that something is being done about these assholes, at least in this case. Good on Curt for standing up for his daughter, like a good dad should.
Former baseball star Curt Schilling tracked down and shamed two Twitter trolls who were harassing his daughter via Twitter

Those aren't rage quits... disconnecting instead of conceding would be a rage quit.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
This country's history has not always been rosy.
An Oklahoma House committee on Monday approved a bill taking aim at the new AP U.S. History framework, which conservatives have decried as unpatriotic and negative, the Tulsa World reported. State Rep. Dan Fisher (R) introduced a bill at the beginning of the month that keeps the state from funding AP U.S. History unless the College Board changes the curriculum. The bill also orders the state Department of Education to establish a U.S. History pr...

I would think that if any of these elected leaders (and I use the term loosely) graduated from any institution that issued a diploma, that institution might want to consider revoking that diploma, since they clearly did not grasp the concepts.

Wow... yeah, that's about all I can say.
The premise of the animated short film Le Gouffre is simple: two friends need to get across a broad chasm, so they start to build a bridge from one end to the other. But over the course of ten minutes, we're treated to a beautiful, wordless drama about friendship, filled with plenty of tense action.

The inner voice was screaming, "You're running the wrong way!!"
On the other hand, a bet is a bet :-)
