Clearing Out The Cruft

The times they are a-changin’ around Sacramento. Spring will be here before we know it, and I’ll be making my first big move in almost three years when it does. I’m staying in Sacramento (for now, at least), but my roommates are all moving out and starting new lives in the next couple months. It […]

Project “New Leaf”

As 2013 came to a close late last month, I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could make the most of the coming year. I could have devoted my efforts towards a new set of resolutions, as I typically do, but to be honest they would have closely mirrored the set I […]

A Well-Dressed Geek? It’s No Joke!

One of my favorite Internet personalities – Retronaut in Chief, Jeremy Parish – posted a really great blog awhile back about how it’s okay for nerds to dress well. It’s a really good read (as is most of his writing), and really underscores a “problem” in our larger geek community. Let’s face it: most of […]

Contingency Plan

Earlier this month I celebrated my birthday, which – despite what you may expect – is frequently anything but a happy occasion. Last year I was basically broke, and so the best I could do to celebrate turning another year older was buying myself some coffee at my favorite shop in Midtown. I often suffer […]

New York City: The Sequel!!!

It seems like not so long ago I spirited off to New York and experienced the unabashed grandeur of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the rest of the Burroughs. It’s probably because it wasn’t that long ago. Less than six months, in fact. But I knew that couldn’t stay away for long, and as it so happens, […]

Bikes Bikes Bikes!

You may recall that last spring I had a revelation: riding a bicycle was not only something I was still capable of, but it’s actually pretty fun. For a few months, I not only for comfortable with riding a bike again, I started to love it. I cherished and looked forward to the few hours […]

A Lack of New Figures Lately

Long-time readers will know that I have a small collection of Anime and videogame figures, which is a very fancy term for glorified toys. I’ve written about them numerous times over the years. Because these figures are predominantly female characters, my friends have often (jokingly?) referred to them as my “dollies”. This doesn’t really embarrass […]

New York: Final Thoughts

I fell in love with New York on my first day. By the seventh, I was almost ready to cement the relationship by moving in with her. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it once more: I believe this is the greatest city on the planet. I welcome being proven wrong, but until I […]

DUMBO, Manhattan, and SoHo, Oh My!

Despite that temultuous first morning in JFK Airport, I quickly fell in love with New York. My first days of exploring and sightseeing are easily some of my favorite moments from the trip. Shortly after my arrival at Lisa’s apartment, we went down to a nearby coffee house for the caffeine infusion I desperately needed […]
