Hello. I took an impromptu break from the blogfront for about a month, but I’m returning today to honor a yearly tradition (excluding 2020): picking who I expect to win the Super Bowl.Continue reading “NFL Pick ‘Em: Super Bowl LVII”

Oh, Wow! The Merry Days of Anime 2022!
Howdy. Salutations. I am still going to do that thing I started on a whim, like, four years ago and watch some anime all throughout December. As always, I will write on everything I view, finished or otherwise.Continue reading “Oh, Wow! The Merry Days of Anime 2022!”
Fighting the Urge to Overconsume
How do you eat a snack? Do you take minimal, multiple bites to savor the flavor and pace yourself? Or do you eat it all in one bite, size allowing? I tend to fall under the latter situation, and have throughout my entire life. Might be why I’ve always been overweight. Though for the purposes of this piece, I wish to elaborate that this also falls into another unhealthy habit of mine that has recently found itself diminishing the volume of my creativity in recent weeks.
The snack analogy is an easy, quick way to establish what exactly I mean by “overconsumption” in the title. A majority of the time, I take substantial bites out of my food, quickly nourishing myself with the beloved happy chemicals that come with tasting something scrumptious. The same can be said of my daily habits and activities—hobbies, if you will. It is not simply food, but the things that I look forward to in a given day. I consume to high degrees in just about everything. Lately, it has become somewhat alarming.Continue reading “Fighting the Urge to Overconsume”
Holy Moly, Another Update!
You may have noticed that I have not written anything here in the last month-plus, and that my output has been very paltry since my Steam game demo marathon in June. This may have led some of you to think, “Where is the man who writes the things?” Do not fret, for I am here today to tell you a fun and uplifting update about my life.Continue reading “Holy Moly, Another Update!”
(Another) Inconvenient Update
Unfortunate as it is, my current situation with my laptop has not been totally settled. Days after I successfully replaced my battery, my charger has completely stopped charging the laptop. After attempting to buy two replacement chargers—neither of which worked—I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the charger port itself.
So once again, for the time being, there will be no articles uploaded to this site until my laptop can, well, turn on. My apologies to anyone inconvenienced by this (more likely I than anyone else). I sincerely wish this would stop happening.
Thank you for your time. Have a better timezone than I’m having.
Hello. I am typing this from my close-to-dead laptop.
Posts on this blog, including planned reviews on the latest Aharen-san episode and a few reviews on games I’ve finished in the last couple weeks, will be delayed. As evidenced by the opening line, my laptop’s battery is close to calling it quits and will need to be replaced. Even typing this right now is a near-miraculous effort without my PC randomly shutting off.
I do not anticipate the delay being too long; perhaps a week or so, maybe more depending on how long it will take for the battery to deliver or if I accidentally get the wrong one. Until then, please bear with me.
Thank you for reading. Have a great timezone (and Easter if you celebrate).
Top 10 Highest Quality SiIvaGunner Rips (2022 Edition)
Hello. Welcome to another Top 10 list detailing the highest quality of SiIvaGunner rips I’ve found. If you have never read this before, know that SiIvaGunner is a channel dedicated to supplying your eardrums with magical gaming memories that will last you the rest of your days. As of writing, the channel has over 19,000 videos, most of which are high quality rips.
With so many to choose from, it’s astounding to think that I, alone, can go through everything in order to ascertain quality to make these lists. Alas, I must admit: I listen to maybe ten to twenty new rips within a month’s span, ’cause ain’t nobody got time for that. Nevertheless, many new rips have supplied themselves into the chambers of my memory bank, nestled firmly in place with love and affection.
There are no specific ruleset to make this list; I simply have to adore the tracks. Though this is a “2022 list,” it does not have to have come out in 2022 to qualify. (I’m pretty sure zero tracks I’m going to cover were published in 2022.) This also isn’t meant to insinuate that these tracks are better than others I’ve documented previously. Consider it ten new high quality tracks for a full new year.Continue reading “Top 10 Highest Quality SiIvaGunner Rips (2022 Edition)”
Ranking The Oscars 2022 Best Picture Candidates
Last year, I spoke about how, initially, the nominees for Best Picture seemed pretty solid, but the opportunity to watch all of them proved to be lackluster. This year was kind of the opposite. At first, the nominees seemed very… we’ll say “odd” to me. Then, after viewing most of them, I’ve come around on them more than last year’s batch. It’s more consistently solid, though perhaps not entirely sensational.
Note that I said I saw most of them this year. Unlike last year, I did not have the same opportunity to see every nominee. As of writing, I have not seen Licorice Pizza (which, to me, seems like the frontrunner), CODA, or Belfast. As such, they will not appear on this list. Should that ruin this ranking for you, by all means, close the tab.
As frequent readers are aware, I did view a few Best Picture nominees during my currently continuing March of the Movies block, so I will simply link to those reviews for extended thoughts. All other extended thoughts on individual films will have links to their parent sources. (I believe I have reviews for all of them somewhere.)
And if, for whatever reason, you with to see prior years’ rankings, you can see my 2018, 2019, and 2020 lists before this one. (The 2021 list is linked in the first two words.)Continue reading “Ranking The Oscars 2022 Best Picture Candidates”
Highlighting My Picks for the Entire 2021 NFL Season
Two articles in a row about football? It must be a dream. Indeed, I’ve come to decide that, while currently in the mood to speak on football, I may as well take advantage of the high and go over some things regarding it. This will be something of a unique post, with the only article I’ve done in the past to compare it to was when I looked at data pertaining to my anime-viewing activity. This will cover something entirely different: highlighting my picks for the entire 2021 NFL season.Continue reading “Highlighting My Picks for the Entire 2021 NFL Season”
NFL Pick ‘Em: Super Bowl LVI
Around this time last year (the extra week to the Regular Season ensured it wouldn’t be exact), I made a Super Bowl pick, as I try to do every year. At that time, I was terribly conflicted: Do I go with the powerhouse Chiefs or the Brady-led Buccaneers? I ended up wrong last year, though I take solace in knowing that my heart wanted to pick the Buccaneers.
This year, my brain and heart are saying the same thing. This year, I’m confident.Continue reading “NFL Pick ‘Em: Super Bowl LVI”
