commented on Microsoft Resets Xbox to One
"The end of _______ gaming" is a regular feature in gaming publications. Game journalists have little imagination when it comes to change, so they perceive every shift of current as the complete end of things. This year we talk about the end of console gaming again, next year we talk about the end of PC gaming again. Who knows, maybe the year after it'll be the end of mobile gaming. Gaming's forever dying and yet it's still here, making lots of people lots of money.
Even if the console becomes an entertainment hub device (much like it already is), it will never stop playing games.
The new XBOX is boring and not forward-thinking at all, but the nice thing is, the OS can be updated eventually to include things people want on it. Microsoft's good at playing catch-up, after all.
commented on Our Stupid Fucking Pointless Legislative Session
Ed Murray can't raise money for his mayoral run while the legislative session's ongoing. This is going to be a huge setback for his campaign. So now, not only has Senator Tom fucked him out of his Senate leadership position, but he's fucking up his chances at becoming mayor.

I have sauerkraut in my fridge that I made well over a year ago. Get yourself some real sauerkraut, and you can eat it until you've eaten it all, no time limit.
commented on The Gayest City in America?
"The center of LGBT life in Tacoma is the St. Helens District, where the nightlife is plentiful, with some venues rivaling nearby Seattle’s."
Are they sure they mean Tacoma? Because I've been to Tacoma. And this is not it.
