Or if not killed, at least seriously injured with a baseball bat. So there I was in Beograd — Belgrade –  capital of Serbia. Hopefully you’ve read my little introduction to Serbia; the backdrop has been painted for the retelling of one of my little escapades. I’m not ashamed to say that the main reason I went to Serbia was to meet some of my World of Warcraft guild mates. Actually, as guild leader, I guess they were my peons…

Well, according to this truly atrocious ‘human interest story’ from NBC, I do. Since when are abbreviations that quicken communication a secret language, of a secret society? They can form the basis of a secret language — but 12 million people probably makes it a little too wide-spread to be secret. Heck, it’d be kinda cool if I belonged to a secret society. I’d have some air of mystery then, that would probably score me many fine women. Alas, it’s…

I’ve had some kind of gaming entry bouncing around my head for a few days now, but the Penis Monologues, and then the Snowy Wonderland kind of took up all of my blogging. But now the snow’s stopped, I have a little time to write about geeky things. What is a geek?  For those that totally sure of the definition, geekiness is the act of being slightly too excited about something that a ‘normal’ person would find esoteric. Getting excited…

(The subject just pulls you right in, right? This is where I deliver the one-two sucker punch with this awful video that I was unfortunately shown earlier today: car window rape. It’s safe for work (there’s no nudity), but you might want to wait until you’re in the privacy of your own home, as it’s a little… offbeat.) Well, with that out of the way (and surprise-sex is no laughing matter, kids), we can move onto lighter material. Tic Tac…

Today, I shall write about zombies. ‘Why zombies, Seb?’ Why not zombies? is perhaps a better question to ask. A recent ZeroPunctuation review said that geeks only care about 4 things: ninjas, pirates, monkeys… and zombies. Now, I never really did care for zombies. Sure, I used to watch the occasional hammer horror horror film on Channel 4, back in the day. But zombies never really had the same kind of allure that other denizens of the after life possessed…

Since the age of 6 or 7 I’ve been playing video games way more than is probably healthy. It started with that ZX Spectrum that my kind-of-adopted brother owned. Those hypnotic, flashing loading screens… those oh-so-80s synth noises blasting out of that monophonic speaker… But I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited as those 2 or 3 minutes while waiting for Dizzy to load. Sure, it was way too difficult for me at the time, but I tried my…
