Okay so you know how you’ve got this higher standard for yourself? My whole life I’ve said if you can help, you should. Which, in the last couple years, has led me to make some really astoundingly weird life choices. Because suddenly I can help even a little and now I’m basically fucked forever. Walking and talking…
So I went to give a speech at a library today and I vaguely explained kinja and GT like I always do so that people will have some context, and... yup. One of the librarians was one of our beloved mostly-lurker, sometimes-commenters.
PEOPLE WHO PLAY VIDEOGAMES: If you’re feeling disenfranchised, bored, or just generally uninterested in games you’re the perfect candidate to be interviewed for don’t die. It’s a site that explores the lack of creativity in games from a developer and audience perspective. It’s also a topic that people don’t really…
Okay. After this year (which has been amazing and heartbreaking and most of all REALLY FUCKING WEIRD) I wanted to say: you guys are the best. Full stop.
So people are starting to ask me to do media because as it turns out I'm not terrible at explaining basic intersectionality. I have all of you to blame for that as I'd never heard the word before I started hanging out with you fine folks.
I've been out with people in London, and last night was taken to one of those clubs where people wear way too little clothing and the drinks are entirely too sugary. There was a bathroom attendant, and here is what she kept singing:
Okay, guys. I'm on the BBC at 545 tonight, after which I will be headed to the Blue Posts pub near Tottenham Court Road. A couple people are meeting there around 7, if anyone wants to join us. I have been drinking all the new beer. There is a beer called Camden Hell, so that's a thing.
I'm coming to london. And bristol. And I'm going to be in england for a week, and there is an open bar after my London School speech.
Day 1 is over. I did a ton of radio and also MSNBC. I haven't actually watched the clip (thanks, broken video link on MSNBC's page!) but I'm told there were ridiculous pictures of rather overweight people in trailers with babies? And also some condescending chyrons? WELP. After the show, I told Toure and Krystal Ball…
Possibly the best comment on the Observer article, or at least the most deserving of a GT mocking session. Have at it, lovelies, and I wish you good evening.
When I showed up in Missouri, I hooked up with one of the teams who'd been livestreaming the longest. We got separated in the mess. The next morning, we checked in on each other. One of the team had to go home after he was targeted by police and beanbagged in the clavicle. I agreed to step in to keep the stream…
I don't post much anymore. But I need your wisdom and snark.
#Ferguson is worth leveraging whatever social media is available.
I've got a song in my head.
With the greatest of respect and love, I give you the following collection of things that I have *not* hit publish on since I had to learn something like tact and dignity. You see, I am full of neither of those things, and am prone to pokerfacedness. This has, as I'm sure you remember, led to hijinks and hilarity.
Took five minutes for the first #notallmen question.
