I have a theory that you can have a great video game with a shitty soundtrack, but all games with great soundtracks are great games. I haven’t been able to think of a game that disproves this theory. Can you?

Okay hard G people, what about "laser"?
cutlerish: The word “laser” is actually an initialism: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. By the logic of always using the pronunciation of the member letters as they are in the root words, then “laser” should be pronounced lah-seer. We don’t pronounce it that way. For two reasons. First, the people who invented the term pronounced it lay-zer, and, second, it sounds...
cutlerish asked: Your face sounds dumb.
The Oxford English Dictionary accepts both pronunciations. They are wrong. It is...– Steve Wilhite, the creator of the GIF, chiming in on the pronunciation of the word. (As everyone knows, choosy memes choose “jif.”) Wilhite, a former CompuServe employee, created the format in 1987 and is to receive an award for his creation tonight. (via shortformblog) — Listen. Arguing...
My son was the worst behaved today he has ever been in his almost 5 years on this planet. There was screaming and crying and things thrown. And he did some of that stuff too. I am exhausted and emotionally drained. I have to come up with a better system so that I’m not cooking breakfast and lunch for the next day until 10:30 at night. I get more notifications from the Iron Man 3 game...
ifansmarchog: galacticdad: growing up means realizing a lot of your old friends are assholes And a lot of your new friends, too. Pretty much everyone including yourself.
Possibly my favorite song of all time.

I’m at an anniversary party and there’s a husband and wife dj and I swear to god they better be exactly like Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer on SNL or I’ll just walk out.
Seven Things Saturday
The guy who has the apartment under this store changed his WiFi password and now I have to use my phone as a tether. White people problems. I used to be a beer snob like you guys when I still drank, but it was all for show. Truthfully, if all that was in the house was a glass of warm, stale, flat bud light with a dead cricket floating in it, I’d flick that sucker out and chug it down. ...
Amory Wars →
Here are all of the Coheed and Cambria albums in the order in which they are meant to be heard. The playlist is titled Amory Wars and I know that, technically, the Afterman albums aren’t part of the Amory Wars, but I think you’ll deal. Won’t you? Of course you will.
There’s nothing quite like sitting on your porch, smoking a cigar, and listening to the soft, melodic drumming of a metric ton of caterpillar shit descending from the trees and covering everything you own.
Five Things Friday
1. I’m not 100% sure what the big deal is with Angelina Jolie. Like it’s her fucking body who cares? If she was doing it to make her boobs look better it still wouldn’t matter what you think. It’s her decision anyway and also who fucking cares? Honestly. 2. It never fails that if I’m listening to internet radio and a Coheed and Cambria song comes on, I then have to stop listening to the...
If you guys only knew how many times I have to talk myself out of shaving my eyebrows and drawing on Vulcan eyebrows like it’s not even funny anymore.
The first step in any yoga you do, no matter if you’re a beginner, or an expert, is to make sure there are no legos underneath your yoga mat.
We’re all the same kind of different, in our own unique way.
husky-jon asked: SON!!! Where did you learn to do that!
Wow I am really angry tonight.
Roasted Vegetable Recipe.
Some of you were asking for the recipe for the vegetables I posted earlier, but there is no recipe. I just cut up a bunch of vegetables and cover them in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss them in the oven somewhere between 400 and 450. Cook them till they’re done. I added thyme this time because I’m fancy. And because I like to say thyme this time. Or you could put the thyme after...
It was no secret that Batman and Captain Barnacles hated each other. From day one, The Captain would stalk around Batman’s bowl. Eyeballing him. No doubt whispering, “Soon. Soon.” Batman would stare back with hatred in his little orange eyes. And if I spoke Siamese Fighting Fish, I’m sure I would have heard Batman call out, “Bring it on, muthafuckaaaaah!” ...
Letting your son play with the older neighborhood kids for the first time is officially the most nerve-wracking thing ever.
Life in the new office.
Me: Jesus Christ. 25 minutes left. Fuck.
Me: Actually, I'm leaving now.
I don't know what I expected my first day back at...
Maybe that’s the problem.
Things I learned on vacation.
1. I need to move to an island. 2. All of us who go on this trip every year, (and there are a lot of us) bank so much on this one trip. All of our pent up frustration throughout the year needs to be relaxed away there. One week is not enough. 3. There’s no way any of us could ever afford another week. 4. “It started off great but then it all turned to shit.” is going to...
Well I'm back.
What did I miss?
Every time someone posts something like “LOL white people” I want to be like “Hey! Not all white people are like that!” but then I think, “wait, no, we are. Ok, carry on.”
Five things Friday
I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow morning at like 3am. I still have so much work to do before I leave, but I’ve been checked out, mentally, since last week. My wife’s best friend will be watching the dogs so she’s sleeping over tonight. That means I’ll have 2 women in my bed. Awwwww yissssss. (I’ll be on the couch) It’s also a vacation from the internet, besides an...
