We, the Broken.

At some point in our lives, we all experience what I like to call “Broken Bird Syndrome”. We all meet that one person we want to save, because they are “clearly in need” of saving, and we quickly set off on this noble quest to fix and nurture. Most of us are not heartless assholes, […]

E3 for the win.

I spent last week in Los Angeles, and boy, was I happy to get back to that city. The one and only thing on my agenda: E3 2013. It was my first E3, and even though I had heard how different it is from any other show, I still wasn’t prepared for the beauty. Every […]

Hasn’t that been the theme of all my blog entries […]

Five weeks.
