Dream Journal #3: The Time Witch

“The Time Witch” was inspired by a dream I had way back on July 6th, 2012. Last night, Ellora the witch and her two companions were using time magic to destroy children’s parents, thus erasing the kids from ever existing. I watched it happen. She needed the child’s shoe, and then she would perform aContinue reading “Dream Journal #3: The Time Witch”

You Oughta Be in Pictures: Games in Movies

I didn’t know how to describe it at the time, but there was such pure, unadulterated joy in catching even just the slightest glimpse of someone playing a video game while watching a movie. Immediately, I would want to play, too; this was a feeling that was certainly exploited in shows like Video Power orContinue reading “You Oughta Be in Pictures: Games in Movies”

Crayon Art #15: Kirby’s Dream Land

Did you know that Kirby was almost called “Twinkle Popo?” Thank goodness for the change! “Twinkle Popo’s Dream Land” just doesn’t quite roll off the tongue.

There She Blows: Wind in Games

There have been a few times this past month where the wind has been howling wildly outside of our window. It’s loud enough to raise my anxiety a little bit, but apparently this is just the tip of the iceberg. Where I’m currently living, March is supposed to be windiest month. So, I better getContinue reading “There She Blows: Wind in Games”

*Painting* Art #12: More Mega Man

For Valentine’s Day this year, we tried something new: painting! Besides my few bouts with brushes in art classes, I had never really considered trying my hand at creating on canvas. My girlfriend had the wonderful idea to hit up the local art store so we could spend a relaxing afternoon together brushing our caresContinue reading “*Painting* Art #12: More Mega Man”

Crayon Art #11: A Goofy Movie

My girlfriend had a birthday recently, and one of our first experiences hanging out together involved watching the Disney classic A Goofy Movie. Surely, back then we were thinking that After Today we’d be hitting the Open Road because of how well we could see things Eye to Eye! To honor the occasion, I decidedContinue reading “Crayon Art #11: A Goofy Movie”

50th Post: Most Mentioned Games

Can you believe it?! 50 posts! I launched my website in the late summer of 2019 and began publishing regular blog posts at the beginning of 2020. It all started with my idea to create monthly themed Top Ten lists about video games based on some sort of pun (Jam-uary, Food-uary, Blarch, Ape-ril, etc.). OfContinue reading “50th Post: Most Mentioned Games”
