Look, it's Howard Phillips Lovecraft.  I call him one of the old masters for a reason, which is that he's a fucking great author.  He didn't invent the...

I did an awful job of planning out my workouts for this week, which is to say that I kept forgetting to plan them and ended up deciding on what to do just before doing it, so they ended up being a pretty simple collection.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, of...

I don't want to do an official review of Darkest Dungeon for two reasons.  First, it's been a while since I played it, so my memories of it aren't sharp enough for me to trust them completely.  Second, though somewhat related, I played it back before the release of the...

If you checked the alt text for the fruit soup recipe picture, you'd have noticed that I mentioned the recipe for the cake underneath it was forthcoming.  Well, now it's here.  This is pure decadent delight, in cake form.  The base recipe for this was actually a sweet p...

If the rating wasn't warning enough, this review's going to be pretty harsh, because oh.  My.  Fuck.  Was this book ever a shit book.

I'm going to start off by ta...

This is an idea that I touched on in my review of The Wraiths of Will and Pleasure, and I got the urge to discuss it further.

The basic premise is that there are two primary ways in which a fictional narrative can be presented to the reader.  Since I don't have any forma...

Playing Time: 44 hours, plus about 3-4 hours of unsaved time from dying to Satan

Considering that Digital Devil Saga was a planned duology, it's only fitting to review the second game in the series, too (handy link to my DDS1 review here).  A lot of people view...

It was good to step back up to 5 workouts this week.  Less good was that my thighs were sore as fuck for most of the week.  I don't know what it is about side lunges that always kills me.  They're not hard, but I suppose the movement is just different enough from what I...
