In fairness, the rest of the specs look great.  They even managed to fit NFC in there (looking at you, +OnePlus).

While I am on the subject of crossovers I would appreciate, K.K. Slider should perform with the Squid Sisters.  And those are both owned by the same company, so I could actually see it happening.  +Nintendo?

E12 of Madoka: In which Madoka tries the thing I have been wondering about since around E02 or 03 and becomes some combination of Peter Bishop, Akane Kurashiki, and Rose Tyler.

Are there really people who trusted Kyubey when they first watched Madoka?  Everything it says is worded in such an underhanded and manipulative way.

After years of sitting, unplugged, on a shelf in my basement, my GameCube's internal clock was only off by around ten minutes!  Well done, +Nintendo.

+Joseph Porsella just pointed out that Dolores Umbridge, the most hated character in the Harry Potter universe, is basically the personification of the Common Core.

> Steins;Gate and Zero Escape have nearly identical time travel mechanics.
> Both are visual novels.
> The Steins;Gate sequel is called “Steins;Gate 0”.

I hope I am living in a timeline in which a Steins;Gate + Zero Escape crossover can happen.

That last episode (E10) of Madoka got so timey-wimey it was basically E13 of Steins;Gate all over again.

I just got through E08 of Madoka, and I think, in what I thought was me taking a break from stories involving temporal manipulation, I inadvertently ended up in yet another story involving temporal manipulation.

Introduction

I am a 21-year-old game and software designer and developer.

I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I would like to think I am quite good at those things—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school.  I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing.  I am not as good at those things, but I hope to get better in time.  I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time.  And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.

If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared SpacesApache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.

Bragging rights
I am a sysadmin, I can write a web app on a bus ride, and I spin fire poi.

I think they changed the recipe for the crust, and I do not think the new one is as good. The creative pizza types, however, are as great as ever.
