Things! Happenings! News!

Well, I have a few updates for you guys. There’s going to be a temporary dip in posting that I should have warned you about some days ago. We need to do some reorganizing behind the scenes, code and hosting and so forth. We should be back, full force, within four weeks from when this is posted, and this time we’ll have put down the foundation for cool new content.

The reason for the lack is that there’s no one working on L&S save myself and my two partners on this project. We get to be both the “rock stars” and the “roadies” and this new foundation for Life & Sanity is going to be a lot of work on the “roadie” side of things.

So I’ll see you guys in a few weeks!

Games Everyone Should Play: ‘Thomas Was Alone’

Posted in Entertainment, Games, Gaming with tags , , on 2014/03/19 by Dashiell Barlow

We have a concept for works of fiction that are so good that they should be preserved in the hope that future generations can be forced to experience them during public education: “classic” works. Mostly this concept is only applied to literature. I think that’s shortsighted of us. Movies exist that should be considered “classics:” ‘The Empire Strikes Back,’ for one. But I’m not going to talk about movies today. No, I’m going to talk about an indie game that deserves the same recognition, as, say, ‘Moby Dick’ or ‘Catch 22.’ It’s called ‘Thomas Was Alone.’

Nexuiz Woes

Posted in Games, Gaming, Incompetence, Internet, PC, Rants, Retrogames, Software, STEAM, Valve, WTF with tags , , , , , , on 2014/03/18 by Catso San

First, I present to you this link.

Story time. Nexuiz was previously a game based off the Quake 3 engine, that version is still available, luckily. Then, Alien Trap decided to pass the IP off to THQ and IllFonic. They made a comparatively closed source game (the original had a ton of cool maps and mods) that was based on Cryengine, and despite the closed aspect, the game wasn’t bad.

And then THQ died.

What I Believe Part 3: Belief and Faith

Posted in Life, Philosophy with tags , , on 2014/03/17 by Lilly

Today I’m going to talk about belief and faith, what are they, how do they connect, why should we have them. What happens if we don’t. Continue reading

Not What was Planned but Important Nonetheless

Posted in Life, Philosophy with tags , , on 2014/03/16 by Lilly

I know I promised I was going to write about Faith in my next post, but I’m afraid that isn’t what’s happening. I wanted to, but I’ve found myself doing some soul-searching as a result of actually putting words to what I believe. And so this will be a short post, more filled with questions and thoughts than information. Continue reading

What I Believe Part 2: The Better Than Thou Syndrome

Posted in Intolerance, Life, Philosophy, Tolerance with tags , , on 2014/03/15 by Lilly

So for today’s post, to continue my dissertation on religion, and what I do and don’t believe I’d like to talk a bit about what I like to call “the better than thou syndrome”. This is the mindset that I have run across so many times in people of many varying religions, and it is extremely off-putting and frustrating to me. Continue reading

What I Believe: Part one

Posted in Life, Philosophy, Tolerance with tags , , , on 2014/03/14 by Lilly

First off, I’d like to let you all know why it is that this blog’s primary author isn’t writing, and I’m stepping in for a few posts. He has been having terrible carpal tunnel flares, and just yesterday got a needle stuck in his wrist to hopefully alleviate it, so typing isn’t high on his list of things to do right now as you can imagine. So you’ll just have to make due with me and my ramblings. Continue reading

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
