Re: Firefly & Serenity (Use Spoilers!)

I actually saw the movie before the series (my dad controlled the Netflix queue, he saw a cool-looking science fiction movie, he added it). So I only recently finished the series and I love it. The urge to rewatch episodes even trumps the urge to play Half-Life, time permitting. Best part about seei...

I'm really late to the girl-gamer discussion, but I'd like to throw out an anecdatum. I've never encountered any disrespect or 'no girls allowed' mentality. Then again, I've never tried gaming online. So all my experience is talking to guys face-to-face. Last fall, I was giving a spe...

Re: Looking for Class Hobbies

I drew rectangular prisms in 2-point perspective. But I made sure that no more than two boxes overlapped, and I didn't erase any lines, so the boxes looked transparent. Then I assigned each box a primary color, and the overlapping areas became the appropriate secondary color. Good times. I also drew...
