App Review: Brain Trainers

Any kind of gaming is good for your brain. Sudoku, Candy Crush, the latest AAA blockbuster, they’re all based in problem solving and working through them helps keep your brain active (to varying degrees of course). Lately though, there’s been a new subset of games that are designed to maximize this benefit


10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa Days 4-7

It’s been a week, since my original post about 10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa, and I have received 4 more gifts, taking me up to day 7.  It’s interesting considering that holidaybullshit.com only has up to day 5 posted.  Without further ado, here are the contents of these packages: Day 5: The Ghost


Review: Tyranny of Dragons

I don’t know what you guys do on your Friday nights, but here in Awesometown, we play games. We’re not picky on the type of games- board, video, tabletop, reindeer. (Especially reindeer.) Right now we’re at the beginning of a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign and I couldn’t be more excited. Buddy

Words Matter.

It’s a little early for 2014 retrospective posts, but I also don’t want to wait to write this one. It’s not been a great year for internet culture. We had GamerGate. We had ShirtGate. (Seriously, let’s stop with the “gates.”) We’ve had reactions to the Michael Brown shooting, and reactions to everything
