Today’s post is one of the rarer ones I do where I talk about why you’re not seeing the regular geeky post from me. At least I don’t do these too often and instead of skipping a blogging day, I wanted to write something than nothing at all.
For my usual Monday post, I’m going to address a blog award nomination I received! This also means you’ll learn more useless (useful?) facts about me. The always wonderful Crystal K.M. of PhoenixDown decided to nominate me for the One Lovely Blog Award which I wholeheartedly accept and thank her for.
This week’s post is a little different from what I have usually done on my blog, but it’s a welcome one and it gives me an opportunity to exercise those journalism muscles I haven’t used since my college days. Meet Chris and Jane of chrisandjanesplace.etsy.com, creators of the Zombie Gnomes. They take your average garden variety gnome and give it the zombie treatment. Their product has been featured on Geek and Sundry, Cnet, and The Huffington Post to name a few. Chris and Jane were kind enough to take time out from crafting these oddly cute and horrific gnomes to talk about how Zombie Gnomes came to be as well as discuss their weapon of choice in a zombie apocalypse…among other things. Visit their website if you’re interested in purchasing any of the items pictured here, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
Anyone who has been following my blog for a while will know I count Sailor Moon as one of my favorite animes (and manga) of all time. It set me off on a path to becoming a major anime fan. I just about consumed everything I could get my hands on. Usually if a series had an anime, it most likely was based off of a manga. Animes that were twenty-four episodes or longer, I managed to finish within a week or two weeks. The Japanese animation style and the stories kept me eager to watch a marathon of episodes after homework and studying was done, or when the weekend rolled around. These days, I can barely finish two episodes in a week.
Check out my guest spot for a Game On I did with the guys of At the Buzzer! See how well we did against the Collectors as we play a match of Mass Effect 3 MP. As an added bonus, you’ll finally hear the voice of yours truly. When you’re done watching this video, be sure to check out the rest of their Game Ons. Better yet, visit their website and stay a while. There’s plenty for you to read, watch, and listen to. I guarantee it.
This hacking attempt is turning into an abomination! Thank you, I’ll be here all week. Tip your waitress.
Shaun, Jason and (eventually) Tech Guy take on enemies from across the galaxy in the multiplayer mode of Mass Effect 3, with a special guest: simpleek! Can our intrepid heroes survive and reach the extraction point?
Have a game you want to see us
suffer through play next? Let us know in the comments or by sending us an email. Now that this is a series, we’ve created its own page, which you can see here. It’ll list all the games we’ve done so far and what might be coming next.
It’s time to battle your way to the LZ. Game on.
