Catching up, again

I forgot to mention that I got a very generous donation a week ago! Thank you so much, Daniel! I can't express just how grateful I am to you wonderful people out there who do such nice things. Money's been a little stressful for me lately, what with receiving that undeserved speeding ticket and having barely any hours at work. This is a tremendous help.

Another thing I forgot to mention: I went to go see Video Games Live here in Orlando on March 29th. It was an awesome show! For those unfamiliar with it, Video Games Live is a video game-themed orchestral concert, and it features lots of popular game music. I'd been wanting to attend one for years, so I was really excited to finally get the opportunity. After the show, they had a little meet-and-greet with all the main folks in the show, so that was fun. I chit-chatted briefly with each one of them, the most well-known of the bunch being Tommy Tallarico. He's the one who founded Video Games Live, and he plays guitar in the show. He's a video game composer, and he's worked on tons of games. My personal favorite of his work is the Earthworm Jim soundtrack! :> Oh, I should add that the guy who composed the soundtrack for God of War III performed in the show, and he was so smarmy! During the meet and greet, he was flirting with me in a very smarmy manner. :<

I really love having Netflix! My friend let me share his account, and I've been trying to make good use of it! I've been watching an anime series called Mushi-Shi, and it's really good. I'm very picky about anime, so it has to be something special to interest me. The series is quite sad, though, and it seems like each episode tries to outdo the last one in how sad it is!

I beat Monster Tale last night. It was a super fun game, and I really enjoyed it all throughout. The only big issue I had was that the final boss was super easy! Otherwise, though, it was great. I'm in love with the team who made it, and I can't wait to see what they make next! It's especially exciting because they're located in my area, and a good friend of mine may possibly be working on their next game. I'm hoping I can work for them someday, too! It will probably never happen, but a girl can dream. Now that I'm done with Monster Tale, I'm playing Pokemon White.

So I've been thinking about doing a new thing with my blog. I wanna start doing little random prize giveaways! I've built up a fairly large collection of gaming-related odds & ends that I don't really know what to do with, so I think it would be fun to give them away as prizes! These are things like posters, t-shirts, things I've gotten from work, etc etc. I'm not quite sure how the giveaways will be structured yet, but it will probably involve answering a trivia question or something like that. I'll keep working on the details of it, but keep an eye out for that sometime soon!

I see the grand majority of you have never smoked! Alright, now it's time for a new poll. Have at it!

Hmmm? What's this? ;)


  1. Did you make the pin yourself? Its very awesome!

    Also, as someone who has been following Nerdy Show since its start up, it is very nice to see a person from something almost completely unrelated making such a good impact on it! You are doing a bang up job! I hope they have you in more than just the video game and cosplay episodes!

  2. I am in LOVE with those Pins <3 I would enjoy owning one :D

  3. First off VIDEO GAMES LIVE IS THE BEST THING EVER, it almost beats trans siberian orchestra. Yes im a music nerd. Second the pins are damn impressive you have a art for the well... art. Thirdly, I hope the donation helped you out in everyway :D

  4. I'm not big on going to concerts, but a video game concert is almost enough to get me to go to one.

    I've been playing Pokemon: Black like crazy. If you want any Eevee's or either of the starters you didn't choose let me know.
