| Punch Quest

This is the best new iOs game! It's free too, dig it:

| FTL related

Finally got the Stealth Cruiser... if you can survive the first sector with no shields it's pretty groovy. I'm working on the Type B because it comes with the Glaive Beam standard! Weeeee

| FTL > Artemis

I liked Artemis, I liked the social aspect of the game, I liked sitting in one room together goofing around and playing Star Trek house.  But the piece that was missing from the game to make it more like Star Trek was EVERYTHING ELSE THAT HAPPENS NOT ON THE BRIDGE.

Without there being a story aspect to Artemis, it's just not much more that a clunky (and social) version of FTL, but without the RPG elements.  Even if Artemis had some minor text driven missions and 'pause' screens where the players interact with a choose your own adventure-like story component it would make Artemis that much cooler.

I feel like I'm selling Artemis short because we didn't really take it seriously enough or gave it enough attention to get a good feel for what it had to offer, but I suspect it's not THAT MUCH more that we played through.

PS I feel sad for Kickstarter projects that fail miserably.
That's such a weird kickstarter. Those t-shirts make me sad for some reason! Do you guys think Artemis "worked" for us that weekend? I think the technical difficulties we had setting it up sucked a LOT of the fun out of it for me. I'm sure when I was younger I had a much higher endurance for lan-party setup, but now I just want to raaaage. I think the game has a lot of potential though.

Saw Looper. That shit was awesome.

That Discogs site is cool. Man, those 7 inches I bought back in the day are, no surprise, worth barely more than I paid for them. I need to see what I actually still have left and go through them. There might be SOME gem in there, but I kinda doubt it. 
Voodoo Glow Skulls - Rasta Mi Huevos only worth $3.98 :( 
The Offspring cover for Ignition was HORRIBLE! Insert fireplace clip art.

Propagandhi ‎– Where Quality Is Job #1 for $20! (dO I EVEN HAVE THIS?)

hate how copy/paste goes nuts sometimes.

| Argo

Went to see Argo this past week. Pretty good movie! I still haven't seen Good Will Hunting, but I did see The Town, and I'd put it at that level of goodness for me. Not the best movie I've ever seen, but entertaining and well made.
