So I stumbled upon this funny Periodic Table of Awesoments which made me want to post my top 5 things that are awesome:

5. Sarcasm
Because I really really appreciate you and what you have done for the world.

4. Camping
I love sitting in a forest with a beer in one hand and a chainsaw in the other. So I guess this one could be renamed "camping or being a crazed killer". Whether it be in a tent with holes so big you can't remember which one is the door, or in "The affordable way to get away" boxtent in the back of my truck, me loves the camping.

3. lolcatz
Many dark and dreary days - where one thing after another was going wrong - have been turned around by a hillarious picture of a cat with a clever quip. And so I ask you all:
2. Boobs
'nuff said

1. Bazookas
To me, the bazooka was always the coolest weapon to pretend you had when having a pretend gun fight as a kid. Nothing felt quite like resting that cold heavy metal on my shoulder, closing one eye and taking aim at my sister the enemy forces.
* side note: Although my mother worked for the Canadian Forces, and let me watch training video's on how to properly fire surface to air missiles or the benefits of tracer ammo, I was never allowed to own any gun toys as a kid. Not even a water gun.
Nothing beats a bazooka. Nothing. Try using one in your next game of rock/paper/scissors. I guarantee you will win.

I'm back baby! And now for something completely different...

So I'm finally moved into the new place! My apologies for forcing you to live without my mundane (or is that inane?) ramblings for far too long.

Are you like me? Do you ever watch/read/pay attention to someone important semi-famous and think 'Hey, I could do that!'?
Not in The Little Engine That Could way, but rather in the How is this guy more qualified than me? egotistical way. Well I do, and recently I have come across a couple cases of this which I will (maybe possibly might) prove that I could do it better.

This example is internet based, so the qualifications are that you breathe. I just checked, and I qualify.

The multitude of video game podcasts (that suck).

While I find ZeroPunction's reviews amusing, they are obviously written for entertainment and hold no real "review" value. Most other podcasts take 20 minutes to "finish munching their nachos"1 and then 3 guys with tantamount voices just mumble about why the current line-up of games isn't perfect. Then they argue why each other is an idiot.

I would like to find or create a podcast where people with distinguishable voices actually give some insight to how a game plays/looks/feels rather than the classic five year old argument "it sucks!", "does not!", "does to!".

Anyone have a good gaming podcast or maybe someone who would partner up with the old Fynnsky for our very own?
