"The End of the Last Book of the Wheel of Time."
Is it sad that reading those words made me want to cry? I would tend not to think so. I cry pretty easily, not something a man tends to be proud of, but I think in this instance it isn't a man that wants to. When I first read The Eye of the World, I wasn't a man. I was in Seventh Grade, Middle School, for those who aren't familiar with the system, and I was astounded. Not because of the book. Believe me, it was a wonderful read, and I
Let me preface this particular rant with an undying pledge of love for the majority of the Mass Effect Series. When I first started to read the articles about the production of the first game, I was intrigued. When I actually bought and played the first game, I was ecstatic. Finally, a new space RPG that was more "Hard" Science-Fiction than it's fellows! Codex upon codex showered fluff-text down upon me like some magical fountain of fiction, and I greedily downed cup after cup of lore with j
Hey there, hi there, ho there. It's been a while since I posted anything on this blog. Heck it's been a while since I posted anything on DM itself. But JordanCon is getting closer and I've found myself thinking more and more about the ol' Dragonmount. So, lemme catch you up on what I've been doing since I logged on last. (I think sometime in August?)
I went abroad for the first time, got some foreign dirt under my nails. Good times. Israel is a fun place, I recommend a trip to those
Yeah, I haven't blogged in a while. Sorry to those of you who were hoping for more action from me in this...segment? Area? Whatever you want to call it.
But hey, it's that time again! I'm irritated, some might even say angry, time for Grimm to put on his Rant Pants again! Excuse me while I go get changed. *Stomp stomp stomp*
Okay, for folks to get a general understanding of the meat of my rant, you need to know a little more, or maybe just a little about me. I work in a conveni
So this is Christmas. Made it through another year. God, I hate this holiday. Every year, I have to buy presents. Don't mind that, I actually enjoy the happy faces of my family when they get them. I hate this holiday because I have to look at the open desperation on every Christmas shopper, the sheer avarice on the face of every person there shopping for good deals for themselves. It's even better when you get out onto the crowded streets and highways, and are given the opportunity to bask
Okay, just finished up playing through The Force Unleashed 2. My verdict? Not worth my hard-earned sixty dollars. Here's four reasons why.
When I play a game, I generally hope to get enough play time to keep me satisfied for a few days, at least. I got Fable 3 on the 26th, still playing through it. The Force Unleashed 2? Bought it today, beat it in less than six hours. The main difference between the two? Fable 3 has CONTENT. The whole game seems rushed, like t
Man, I hate people. Yes, I realize it's a broad, sweeping statement, and yes, it probably is a bit of an exaggeration. After all, I don't hate some people. In fact, I might actually like some people. (Shh, don't tell anyone!)
More specifically, I hate everyone I don't know, and most people I meet. To this day, that means every single customer I've served at my work. I think I've said that I work at a convenience store already, but there you go. Every day I have to go to work I alread
So I was sitting here, listening to music and letting my eyes drift in and out of focus while I toyed with a story idea, when I realized something disturbingly profound. It's a realization that I'm reasonably sure that most people have come across at some point in their lives. I know I've hit on more than once in the past 24 years. Ready for it? Ready for the idea you probably already came up with?
Life is wasted.
Not in the sense that no one has a reason to live(well, possibly also
I'll be going to work soon, so I'll be keeping this relatively brief by necessity. I just finished watching the last episode of Red Vs. Blue, and, as is the case with any enjoyable show, I'm basking the somewhat maudlin glow of it's conclusion. If any of you haven't seen it, zip on over to www.redvsblue.com and watch the series, as well as the other shows the Rooster Teeth team has up.
The ending of any show can be sentimental, but the ending of this one is a bit worse for me than most.
Minecraft, for those of you who may or may not know, is a relatively new computer game created by a gentleman by the name of Markus Persson. It randomly generates a world, just for you, and then plops your little avatar smack dab in the middle of this (roughly) 32-bit Eden, leaving you free to wander the new creation. Your goal? To survive.
My very first impression would have been one of worry had I not lucked out and downloaded the game while the site was between servers. The creator(Mr
Still working through the story saved in my hard drive, but this should be the last of it. Expect no more lengthy additions. I'm serious, guys. Really. No, really.
The sun continued to sink further towards the earth as the old man climbed the long flight of stairs. His pace was constant, the same speed as it had been when he first started to climb the white marble that the steps had been carved from. His gaze remained fixed on the top, and he seemed to know every step, where one h
Alrighty folks, here's the first post of my first attempt at a serialized story. This one is going to be a bit longer than I expect the following posts to be, mostly because I've had this thing bouncing about my hard drive for a while. A normal entry will probably not exceed more than a few paragraphs, especially in the future when rping picks back up. So, without further ado, the creatively titled Untitled Story Idea. Suggestions for a name will be gladly considered.
Prologue, of a s
Okay, first post on the Grimm-blog. It will quickly become obvious to those of you who read/write blogs regularly that this is my first blog. Hopefully, you hardy souls will find my first, bumbling steps into the blog-o-sphere(Bathosphere? Bioshock?) endearing. Well, there's always the chance that you'll find them a horrifying parody of your favorite form of media. If this is so, then GET THEE HENCE, MORTAL! If not, welcome to the Grimm-blog.
The original plan was to simply use this as
