Telltale’s adventure in Hill Valley comes to a close. Is the series worthy of being your density? Or is it like a baby’s toy?

In which I explain what on earth possessed me to dress as a professor and babble about a theme park movie.

Watch the original sketch here.

(I know I said I’d have the reviews of Back to the Future Episode Five and Paranoia up soon. Well, I’ve been busy with travel and whatnot, so they’ve taken longer to edit than I hoped, but don’t worry, they’re still on their way!)

24 Years, Little Motivation

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

WARNING: The post that follows is somewhat more personal in nature than those usually found in this blog, and contains very few obscure movie or television quotes. Sorry if this bores you.

As of this past Saturday, July 2, I am now 24 years old. Yes, the mid-twenties are here, and I celebrated the old fashioned way: by being a groomsman in my oldest friend’s wedding. It was an exhausting weekend, full of driving all over the state and forgetting how to sleep, but at least there were fireworks basically every night.

I got some great gifts, including a couple of seasons of The Dick Van Dyke Show from the family, and a retweet from one of my comedy idols of my review of his latest release. (I doubt he knew it was my birthday weekend when he retweeted, but I choose to categorize it as a gift anyway.)

In the two years since I graduated from college, I’m sad to say I’ve spent a lot of my time waiting around instead of doing things. Partially due to the nature of my job (raising money takes a long time), and partially out of laziness. Now, fortunately, my fundraising is almost done and I’ll be returning to Florida soon to work until the end of the year. But what about after that, when I’m left to my own devices again? I don’t want to just go back to waiting around. I’m sick of waiting. I need to actually get in the habit of creating. (more…)

After some uploading trouble, this review is FINALLY up: I take a slightly in-depth look at the latest from “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Leave a comment and let me know what you thought about Alpocalypse! And if you don’t own it already, what are you waiting for?

If you’re wondering EXACTLY how I feel about “Party in the USA”, this post should clear things up.

Also, check out the fan-made “Polka Face” video, to hold you over for the official one!
