The PVP Podcast Episode 9 – Moanless

29 Apr

This episode we talk about Nintendo’s recent decisions on E3, Microsoft excitement, Archer, new books, TNG, and how stoked we are on the upcoming Sci-Fi on the Rock convention (which was actually last weekend and was AMAZING!) We met some amazing other local podcasts, authors, and artists, did some interviews with some budding new game developers, and dressed up as Princess Bubblegum and Nathan Drake! Also, our new podcast art is officially EVERYWHERE!

Dealing With the Busy-ness Blues

24 Apr

Right now I am busy. And not the kind of casual “oh I’m so busy” talk that most people have because we are all, on some level, busy. I am talking extreme busy. To the -nth degree, to the absolute maximum, to the point where I think to myself “why did I say yes to everything?!!?!??!!?!1” *pulls out hair* *cries*

This is why there hasn’t been much posted on the site lately. BUT this is not about pity or sympathy or any of that nonsense! This post is about how I’m managing to stay sane through all of this!

a fact I am very much aware of these past months

The PVP Podcast Episode 8 – Deal With It

16 Apr

This week I am incredibly busy, but Dave is finished for the semester, so the fun is decidedly one sided. We talk Mass Effect, Bioshock Infinite, fat Adventure Time plushies, inappropriately timed moaning, and Adam Orth on Twitter. Also we will soon be revealing our new PVP Podcast logo! You’ll love it!

Geekmates Cheapskates: Streaming services

8 Apr

I love a healthy dose of television: reality TV, dramas, comedies, fantasies, sci-fi – you name it, and I’ll find a series to enjoy. I’m the type of person that watches TV while I’m working on schoolwork (I’m watching Arrow right now) and falls asleep to an old Simpsons or Adventure Time episode at night. Unfortunately, cable services can be really expensive, and trying to add on all the bundles to cover every aspect of your TV interests is too much for me. So today, I’m going to share with you my favorite Cheapskate ways to save money on vegging out!

and can I do it on this couch please? YES!

A Birthday tale of epic proportions

4 Apr

My friend Cameron is a really cool dude. He can draw like nobodies business, he is is an archaeologist (umm hello we’re the best!), and he plays/DM’s D&D with the best accents you’ve ever heard. He also does something very special for his friends: on their birthday, he creates and absolutely EPIC tale of bravery and badassery based around their D&D character. Well, yesterday was my birthday, and I couldn’t wait to see mine.

It’s so good, I had to share!

one time, a half Orc Cameron bundled my Druid bear in a tabard and carried him up a well. And then he drew it.
