New Shinies!

Oh hai, new graphics card! That’s a GTX 970. One of them is now in my computer. This pleases me. It came before work, so I uninstalled my existing drivers, swapped out my old card for this one, plugged everything back in, started up and… …the monitor stayed in power saver mode, because the card

What in the Actual Hell?!

I am kinda without words. So prepare for some off-the-cuff ad libbing. Seriously, what the Hell? Did Alberta wake up today and for the first time realize that there are other political parties out there?! WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE?! I don’t even have anything to rant about! Now we can look forward to watching Jim

Cooking With Dad : Uh…Something?

Chickpeas. Cucumber. Celery. Onion. Mayonnaise. Dill. Seed mustard. Something with a bit of heat. Is this a salad? A side dish? A cry for help? I don’t know what to think of this, except that it’s awful. This monstrosity is clashing with itself, and my mouth is the battlefield. I cannot bring myself to shovel

You’ve won a trip to…Edmonton?

Yep, it has actually happened. The Price is Right has hit the skids. Welcome to the bottom of the barrel, game shows. You’re now handing out vacations to Edmonton, Alberta like it’s an amazing prize.

He’s BAAAAaaaaack!

All I can say is, thank goodness that the Leafs didn’t win the right to draft Conor McDavid, because that combined with the resurrection of Jesus Tebow would have meant that no actual sports results would have ever been discussed again. Meanwhile, Chip Kelly gets to continue believing that he’s the biggest genius ever as

Board Gamey Thoughts of Boardgamingness

And how! -Just prior to the long weekend, I received my first ever physical Kickstarter package. Super Dungeon Explore : Forgotten King is a standalone new version of the original SDE. They’ve done away with half the status effects (there were a ludicrous number before) and the stupid loot board. Either a bunch of players

Watching The Neighbors

WARNING : This post is long. Really, really long. I may slip in and out of consciousness and/or reality as it progresses. I’m not sure of what’s real and what’s fake. Tommy Wiseau has probably given me permanent brain damage. I’m going to go back through this and leave a few new comments in italics,

Thanks, Catholicism!

I’ve hit a bit of a dry spell here at the old blog lately. I’ve been looking for subjects, but not too much has come about. And then, the Alberta Catholic School Association decided to reliably fill the void as it seems Catholicism so often is. Thank you, specific faith group. You’re like one of

Look in the Mirror

Ask and you just might receive, Liam… “We all want to blame somebody for the circumstance we’re in,” Mr. Prentice said on Wednesday. “In terms of who is responsible we all need only look in the mirror. Basically all of us have had the best of everything and have not had to pay for what
