Those prescreening emails are actually a lot more common than you think. I once had to fill out a 5 page website thing with radio buttons with questions. I guess it saves them time. I hope ur day got better.

You sound nice enough and you have a great sense of humor. And from the few podcast I've heard you do have the industry knowledge so I bid you luck. In the event that you do get what you're looking for (pockets full of cash) don't ever forget where you came from and get cocky. There's an old Chinese saying that goes "man with hands in pocket, feels cocky" (feel free to use Chinese accent when reading this, it helps).

Congratulations on your new PSP!

May I recommend you pick up "Crush" for PSP from Sega?

It's a fun platformer with unique controls.

The puppy I have was unfortunately destroyed by a very cute component cable. I'm looking to see if someone has an extra puppy.

I would like to make a few comic recommendations.

The Ron Marz run of Witchblade is really really good. Not just a TNA book anymore good story and the First Born is great so far.

Also, I can't believe you aren't reading the Sinestro Corps attack. This is a Green Lantern story at its best. The entire corps being attacked on galactic scale with implications for the whole multiverse.

Practice for my new blog (bare with me)


Team Fortress 2; or how I learned to stop worrying and love the Medic

So, this weekend I spent a majority of my time playing Team Fortress 2, and I learned a few things not only about myself but human nature in general. I also learned that Valve needs to fix the lag issues ASAP. Any room over 8 people is like playing in a room full of gelatin dessert, hmmm ideas for Portal 2. Dedicated servers maybe, please.
Fixable problems aside, this is a game that values teamwork and tough decision making. Like ordering in a restaurant, you make your decision and that’s what you get. You can’t pick up someone’s leftover steak just because it’s more powerful than your chicken. That to me is what makes this game so unique, no running around looking for that super weapon in the middle of the board. If I am a scout I know what I got and I need to use it the best of my ability, or wait till I die and turn into an engineer. It is with that statement that I bring you what your TF2 character choice says about you:

The Scout: “don’t worry I got it” The person that picks the scout says he’s team player but deep down is really a glory hog. All offense, no defense, all about winning it for everyone and making sure we are all aware who stole that last check point. The closest thing to a high school football star in the game. Just be glad there is no friendly fire, because if there was he’d probably kill you for the briefcase just before you hit the basement.

The Soldier: “Rocket Launcher and a shotgun, this guy is gonna be awesome!” Ahhh the statement of a newbie, it’s easy to spot the new guy because they always pick the soldier and die quickly, but be warned dumb luck is sometimes on his side. On the bright side this guy is usually just happy to be playing and willing to take orders, just like a good soldier. He is usually the invited friend of a scout.

The Pyro: “Let’s go the em, I’ll stay here for a bit” The strong silent type, usually an experienced offensive player who likes the having the ability to fall back. Brags when he kills someone but rarely gets in the middle of the fight. Doesn’t take orders but doesn’t really make mistakes either. If you have a friend looking to get into your already full room, he’s the guy you should boot.

Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 later today:

Pretty good overall, but it's "bear" with me.

Bare with me means "Let's take off our clothes together".

I see why you need an intern. ;)
