Wherein I rant against the summer heat and talk about movies and games.


A small secret I want to let you all in on. I hate the summer. I hate the heat, the humidity, the brightness, and the bugs. The heat builds up in my room during daylight hours, forcing me to retreat to the first floor where I wallow in the living room, cut off from my computer. Cut off from my tunnels and floating islands of Terraria! The horror!

Soon it will be June 5th, and I'll be passing the time during the hot parts of the days when I'm not busy working in style. Watching those 150 horror movies I mentioned, counting down the days until the nights start getting longer and the temperature starts to drop. Until the best holiday rolls around and life is good again, and I watch one of my all time favorite movies. It became part of my Halloween traditions the moment I set eyes upon it.
So good! Check out the trailer!
So denizens of the internet, what horror movies should I watch? I'll be compiling a list soon and could use some more ideas. A housemate of mine is also letting me borrow his tablet laptop, so my next update will be more true to form, as I won't be away from a computer all day again.

In other news, I'm hitting the ground running in regards to writing for that gaming siteI mentioned in my first post. Editing a piece on Terraria now, and I was just given beta access to Space Pirates and Zombies to play and post my thoughts on. Here is a trailer for that particular game:

My contributions are not up yet, but if you want to check out some of the other writers stuff, here's Nightmare Mode. The focus is less on news and more on thoughts, opinions, and game theory which makes for some interesting reads, I'll let everyone here know when my things go up as well.

  3. I agree, the heat isn't too friendly to me either -especially due to the fact I have severe hay fever. I also just checked the Tick 'r Treat trailer...looks amazing. I'll order that tonight!

  5. I feel you. For me the summer is already too long (and it hasn't even started properly yet). In a way I wish I hadn't left for warmer places during this winter.

  8. I don't really like summer either. Too hot. I like the months between winter and summer.
