American Horror Story: Sometimes I'm blown back by how well acted this show is, the actresses in particularly. Sarah Paulson's mixture of fear, revulsion and determination to live when in Bloody Face's basement just sent chills up my spine.

Yeah, she is absolutely fantastic. I especially liked her in that incredibly unsettling scene back in episode 5 or so where Dr. Threadson

Code:
performs that revulsion therapy on Lana. She was so believable in her disgust and determination.

I'm also super digging Lily Rabe, she just has such a presence. My eyes go straight to her in every scene she is in.

What I am looking forward to the most is being able to name my soldiers after my friends, and then update them on their virtual fates. :D

A friend of mine in high school did this with our group of friends in The Sims.  A few weeks in I was scarred for life by the stories I heard. :(

Thread duty:  XCOM seems very interesting and is getting solid reviews.  I have a huge backlog to work on so I don't know when I'll play it, but I'll probably try to buy it within the next few months as a show of support.

Same here, at least in terms of backlog; I did end up buying it. I played long enough for one of my friends to be gutted by an alien with scythe-like claws (see last post above). When I told him about it he seemed to take his death pretty well.

I've just discovered the Rescue the Princess blog and it seems to be a lot of fun.  I think I'll be sinking several days into catching up on the backlog on this site.

I love this bloggy thing. <3
FAV'd

Sharing one of my favorites, good for quick chuckles when class is boring me to tears. 27b/6.  Lots of writing, but read the fatter column in the middle; this man is a satirical genius.

I've always been a fan of Blogger Beware, which I'd take a look at if you ever read the Goosebumps books as a kid.

Boy, if this proves true then I'm glad I got ignored held off on making a purchase on Friday.

And I bought one just three weeks ago. The charge is still on my credit card ><.

You'll Need Those for Crossing - Los Campesinos.

Los Campesinos have some of the best damn lyrics I've ever heard.

Not YouTube, but a funny and insightful stand-up act on internet trolls.

Been playing Persona 4, the vanilla version not the Ponyboy version. I'm bound and determined to actually beat it this time. I'm nearing the 2nd to last dungeon and trying to finish up all the party member S-links. Every time I play this game I'm so amazed by how stylish the presentation is. The transparent silhouettes of the main characters on the main menu blows my mind every time.

I'm really a big wimp when it comes to things like this. I'm a compulsive saver, and I have at least 3-5 saves going in any game, so if I make a decision I regret and can potentially take back, I reload and redo it. There's been a few exceptions, like the one I mentioned above.

Oh and 1 more

Mass Effect 3 Ending

Code:
The Destroy ending. It means killing EDI and Legion and all the Geth, but I felt like it was the best choice. And not just because of the tease at the end when you have enough readiness.

Started watching Community after a friend made me watch it. I fell in love quickly. I haven't laughed this hard at something on tv for a while, probably not since the early days of The Office. I've gone through the 1st season and started watching the 2nd today. I find it's one of those shows that is much better to watch with buds than alone though, since with everyone laughing it just seems to make the jokes even funnier.

Dragon Age 1

Code:
Let Alistair kill the Archdemon so my character wouldn't die. Obviously didn't bone Morrigan.

Aa....


Aagh!!


AAAWWWGGHH!!!!!! <3

So jelly of them right now. It'd be awesome to have a set-up like that and have friends come over and just play random games, not even the same games, together.

Walking Dead still continues to impress. They've packed more in six episodes than the last two seasons combined. Once the show hits the mid-season finale, I'm going to really miss it.


Code:
I can totally see why Andrea would bone the Governor. He's hot and charismatic as hell. And yay for Michonne joining up with the good guys! Awesome scenes with her in the forest.

I work as a reference assistant at a library, and today I was assisting a 14 year old girl with getting music on her iPod. Her friend came up to her while I was helping out this girl, and the friend asks her, "Is that your dad?"

I turned 24 yesterday.


The answer is no, I'm not her father.

When I was 22, I was working at a Gamestop.  I had a goatee.  My managers were 31 and 29.  We had MULTIPLE customers refer to me as "that older gentleman who works here", thinking I was 40+.  So don't feel so bad.

Wow, that's nuts. It's weird how facial hair can age a dude years. I'm cool with it though, older dudes are distinguished and I'm good with looking distinguished.

Can you seriously have a discussion about lady parts and NOT bring up Zidane?

I hear he is quite the dabbler.
