Some of my playlists

I often get asked:  “How do you survive with only 23 playlists on Spotify?”.    I’m not sure because that is only the public playlists.  Behold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Some of my playlists… too big to screen on this shit resolution – 1366×768.  Yes I save albums as playlists as my to-be-listened to pile.

Demon’s Souls.

Yet another item not on my original list:

Demon’s Souls will replace Dark Souls 2 on my list.   I can’t believe I BEAT IT! I only died 51,483 times.


  • Class:  Solider
  • Level: 71
  • Weapon: +4 Crushing Battle Axe (I couldn’t find a Pure Greystone, alright!)
  • Strategy:  Lots of Warding and Old Spice.


After thoughts:

Do I like it more than Dark Souls?  Maybe.  Both have similar gameplay, fun levels, interesting enemies, and great bosses.  World 5 was the only area that was lacking, and I saw it as a proto-Blightown.   Will I NG+?  Probably not, too many other things worth doing.   And I have 100k souls I don’t want to lose!   Just like all the other souls games, worth it!  So go play’em.







LPI Level 1 Exam 101

Passed…..barely.  Got 590 out of 800.   Which isn’t that great, but…. got a pass!

Books of 2015 Update!

Update of my previous post and how I’m not even close to it. Dragon Reborn is going off the list because,…624 pages.

Great Hunt – Done!

This took me quite a long time, I had a 2 or 3 month break where I stopped reading.  Woof.  ( Also you can buy this online at Walmart for 24$.  WHY! ).  Maybe a more complete review later.

Late addition:  Howl’s Moving Castle – Done!

Much easier YA read that flew by.   The movie ends a bit different, but I like both.  Meow.

God, internet you are shit! So shit!

What’s the point of 50M down when I can’t stream my gangster rap yo? And what do I do when it stops.. I push play… then it works for a minute.. then it dies.. again… 50megabit down…

So I try this about 3 more times, then notice:

I'm an idiot.

I’m an idiot.

Uh no bitch, I’ll prove it!

Shadowrun Returns

A milestone from my previous post:

I beat Shadowrun Return late last night. Here are my final stats for my Dwarf Mage.


Review: Cheap on steam, buy it and add it to the pile of games you’ll never play.

This is even my final form

The facade nathanthefake has crumbled and is no more.
