The hashtag #3AlbumsThatChangedMyLife is currently making the rounds on Twitter, and while I wanted to jump in on the meme-y goodness I needed more than 140 characters to share my love. For example, before I can even hint at an album we need to step back…

In August I wrote about a new hobby of mine, bullet journaling. Part of the charm of “bujos” is their flexibility. At the end of the day it’s just you, a pen, and a blank book of paper, and what you do is totally up to you. As I’ve just finally completed…

On this week’s episode… Elly bought No Man’s Sky! He talks about his own experiences with the game, and we try to define the careful line between hype and untruths. Aro is oddly charmed by Overwatch! She insists there is story and characterization and…

One of the posts I wrote during Blaugust last year in a fit of topic-seeking was about Holy Grail Beauty Products, and while it’s a subject that only interests part of my audience for sure, it kicked off a nice conversation in the comments and I thought…

Blaugust is here again, only this year it’s a revised, “chill” edition where the goal is to blog on a schedule, and not necessarily every day. I appreciate the change — I finished the 30 day challenge last year, but it got a little intense near the end…

So far I’ve made friends with a babby blue dragon and jumped off a cliff in Highmountain to levitate all the way to Val’sharrah and I hung out with Tyrande and Malfurion and I taught a gnome how to hunt and I covered myself in bones and seaweed to sneak…

I complained about some of the limitations of the updated transmog system in WoW a couple of weeks ago, but let’s be honest — the only reason I wish the system and models were better is because it’s so much fun to dress up your characters. Here are my…

Story

I overshare on the Internet!
Introduction

Hi! I'm interested in a bunch of stuff, particularly:

  • PC Gaming (RPGs & MMOs)
  • Horror and Genre Media
  • Web Tech and Podcasting
  • Cooking)
  • Seattle / Pacific Northwest
  • Current Events

I'm a compulsive communicator! I work in content marketing in Seatte, WA, as well as run a gaming blog and a bi-weekly podcast on video games.

I run a lovely gaming community full of people who I would only occasionally like to throttle. I also like to cook and watch indie horror movies and foreign reality shows. Sometimes I get in fights on the Internet.

My life's goals are to one day beat the racing penguin in Super Mario 64 and to successfully recreate Molly Ringwald's hairdo from The Breakfast Club.

Located in the rapidly gentrifying area of Railtown, Two Chefs and a Table is almost exactly what the name implies: a tiny space with great cooking. You'll probably have to wait for a seat, particularly for brunch, but it's worth it! I had the chicken and waffles. The waffle was crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, and the chicken batter was spicy but not too thick. If you enjoyed your meat, head up the block to Big Lou's Butcher Shop which is owned by the same folks and sells their delish hand made sausage.
