That’s right folks. I’ve moved to a new url, new blog, so much NEW!!!www.whitesnails.com
So click and save and click again. I am tired of this design and the constant whoring of this name wordpress. I am wordpress no more.
Feeling overwhelmed and as such have not been as motivated to blog lately. Micro-blogging on facebook, twitter, and here at wordpress will have to suffice. Later.
Just finished Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind, and it feels good knowing that I’ve read a fantasy novel. It has been far too long since I read a good fantasy that I could sink my teeth into. I am going to jump right on into The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay, hopefully I can sneak a few more books in before school starts this September. Cheers.
Uncle Ernest’s Life Lesson of the Week:
“On my desk next to my typewriter I have the following words emblazoned on a plaque and whenever I find myself struggling with writer’s block, I turn to them and I inevitably feel more relaxed and more at ease with myself and my work, heed them well:
‘Remember the three M’s: Misogyny, Machine-guns, & Murder, as long as these three are present in a story, one is surely to never fail.’
Alas, the lessor known three N’s are not as reliable as the three M’s: Ninjas, Nickels, & Note-cards.
The three M’s though, these words have never failed me and I find that my readers are always pleased when these elements are in place. I mean afterall, who could say no to a story about a machine-gun? Would you?”
I recently purchased a Nintendo DSi and jumping from a Sega Genesis to the DSi blows my mind. The fact that this hand held device contains more processing and gaming power than the monster of a box that was my Sega, astounds me.
I also love that I’m able to re-live all of my childhood gaming days with all of my favorites: Super Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Kirby, etc. And the best part is that these games are so much more advanced and improved with updated story lines and graphics. I feel like such a corporate sell out talking about this because I want people to go out and buy their own, it’s so much fun and worth the cabbage you have to drop to get it.
I feel like a kid again and the portability is what really sells me on this system as I can take the fun with me.
I think I’ll play some Mario, off to rescue the Princess, cheers.
Currently reading Death of a Cozy Writer by G.M. Malliet and I have to say it is an amazing mystery. Will write a review soon enough, just thought I’d share, cheers.
