Oh, hey, look at that! I actually, finally made good on all my threats to start a blog. I mean, it took heartbreak, depression, and spending most of my free time drinking alone to do it – but hey, omelets and eggs and all that shit.
So, what is this about? Fuck, I don’t know. I’m making this up as I go along. Well, kind of – see, I’ve decided to combine the things I love and am not-completely-terrible at doing into one barely-coherent series of rants that may amuse, entertain, inform, horrify, disgust, or baffle you. Or you may end up just not giving a damn, in which case, well, fuck me, I guess.
What are those things, you may ask? I’m glad you asked! Or that I assumed you asked; it doesn’t really matter, does it? Anyway, I practice law for a living. I like to think I am not terrible at it, and my clients seem to agree, insofar as I have not been sued, shot, or stabbed yet. My coworkers also seem to appreciate that I have a masochistic liking for legal research. I also have a lifelong love affair with games, books, anime, and manga. In short, dear reader, I’m one of the biggest goddamn nerds you’ve ever seen in your life. I also tend to add occasional crushing depression and nihilism to the mix – just to spice things up.
So look for my thoughts on law, games, politics, books, current events, classic anime – you name it, and at some point I’ll probably babble on about it. I’m currently playing Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together on PSP – I will delve more into my thoughts on that soon, but at a glance, I will say this: I haven’t seen more depravity and backstabbing outside of the Trump 2016 campaign. Except that Tactics Ogre is entertaining fiction, and Trump is a goddamn horrifying reality.
Before I go, shout out to IGN, GameSpot, RPGamer, and RPGFan for the inspiration to even attempt this. Those are amazing, talented professionals, people – I’m just trying not to fuck this up too royally. Should I ever have the privilege to meet any of you, first round is on me.
