The movie IT, but instead of Pennywise, it's Jon's favorite character!


Wait a minute. Did you hear that? That, that sound?
Boom boom Boom!
That didn't come from the troglodytes. No, that, that came from something else.
The Timogorgon!

So I've been wanting to change my Cheerful Ghost and twitter handle for some time now. Whiteboyslim is a name I've used for a very, very long time. But as I'm getting older it's making less and less sense, not to mention identifying as "Whiteboy" seemed to have a lot less baggage back in the late 90's, early 00's.

After binging Stranger Things season two this last week with my wife I finally came up with a name that's fun, easy to remember, not already taken on twitter, and doesn't send you to weird places... Read All


I have been playing a lot of Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on my Switch. Is anybody else still playing this? I finally beat it once, but I feel it was the luck of the draw on items rather than my skills. Does anybody have any good play tips?


So, I found Spright on google images and I have been using him for my profile picture for my Google account, Steam, Discord, etc. I was wondering if this was alright since I do not make any profit from this?


Is anybody planning on picking up destiny 2 for the pc next month? I may pick it up if CG is going to spin up a team.

Today at 12pm pacific, IGN and the Video Game History Foundation are teaming up for a 5 hour stream of them playing "a slew of rare things, including canceled games, unreleased consoles, forgotten preview builds, and much more."

In the hopes of making my workstation more efficient, I've been experimenting with different application launchers. When I was on the Mac, I was using a program called DragThing, and I loved it. Now that I'm on Windows, I've found a couple that work well enough, but nothing that I really loved. Then I stumbled on Launchy, which is similar to Spotlight on the Mac: A pop-up search field that lets you search for and launch the application your looking for, without the need for mouse clicking. I never gave this option much thought, until I started using it. Now I find it highly useful, to the point that I can't imagine having never used it.

As great as this is, now I'm... Read All
