Waking up Snorlax

February 18, 2013 Leave a comment

I am a Snorlax.

I’ve been one for a long time now, and it’s the main reason why I haven’t updated this blog in almost 8 months.  I’ve been in a rut that’s left me lazy and unmotivated to write anything for the longest time, but it’s about time I snap out of it and get back into the swing of things.

This pretty much sums me up over the last 8 months.

So this blog post serves as my Poke Flute, it’s what I hope will wake me up from out of this rut and get me back to doing something that I really loved doing.

I don’t really have a plan for how often I will update, but I can guarantee that it won’t be another 8 months before I post something new.  I also don’t plan on continuing with Doodle A Day, as doing that for so long is what kind of burnt me out on this blog in the first place.  I might still do a doodle now and than but it’s not going to be a daily feature anymore.

So for those of you who followed my ramblings in the past I apologize for my long absence, and hope you’ll stick around with me a bit longer. So with that out of the way.

It’s time to wake up!

Rise from your Grave!

January 6, 2012 Leave a comment

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog, but it’s a new year filled with new hopes, new dreams and renewed ambitions. Part of that ambition lies in reviving this blog after a long long break.

During my break I’ve tried starting a few new blogs, but I didn’t have the same drive and ambition to write things as when I was doing Mindless Babble.  It was not for a lack of ideas because I had a lot I wanted to write about, but my heart just wasn’t in it.

So I decided to go back to the blog that made me the happiest in hopes that this revival will motivate me into writing more and more things.   I already got a couple of ideas brewing the first being a my personal top 10 games of 2011.  I haven’t decided if I’m going to do the whole list in one big go, or split the list up into a couple of segments.  But you can expect the list in some form to appear in the next couple of days.

Also in the spirit of cross promotion I started a Mindless Babble tumblr during my time off from the blog that I still update and a fairly regular basis, so give it a look.

The Movember Diaries: Day 9

The Mustache Report
I find my self involuntarily stroking my mustache through out the day, this leads me to believe that my mustache has implanted roots in my brain and is slowly trying to take over my body in order meet it’s mustache stoking needs.

My situation reminds me of a Kids in the Hall sketch, in which Kevin McDonald grows a beard and it slowly starts to take over his life.

What fate awaits me at the end of Movember?  Will my stache have fully taken over? Will I simply shave it off?  Or will it all tragically end in an epic battle of Man vs. Stache?  Only time will tell.

So keep me in your thoughts as I try to fight off my stache’s influence.  It will be a long hard fight, but it’s one I must do on my own.

The Movember Diaries: Day 3

Mustache Report
I’ve moved beyond just lip stubble and tiny hairs are starting to grow.  You can’t really tell from far away but up close you can see them.

In other news I’ve received my first two donations which brings my grand total so far up to $50.  So thanks to those that have donated.

And for the rest of you who haven’t donated yet what are you waiting for?  I’m not asking for a lot, just anything you can spare, every little bit counts.

The Evil Me?
Growing a mustache has got me thinking.

In a lot of science fiction there is a parallel world with an evil version of yourself. Often the evil version will have some sort of facial hair.

So it got me thinking.  If I have an evil version of me out there somewhere, what is he doing for Movember?  Instead of growing a mustache is he gradually shaving his off?

So if you see me walking around this Movember with no mustache, watch out! Cause that isn’t me.

The Movember Diaries: Day 2

Mustache Report
So far there isn’t much progress on the mustache, I got a bit a stubble on my upper lip but nothing to get excited about and nothing I haven’t seen before.

In other news I’m now registered with movember.com so I can start raising money for prostate cancer.  So would you kindly visit my Mo Space and make a donation?

I’ve long been thinking of what sort of mustache I would like at the end of all this and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d like a mustache similar to the Street Fighter character Dudley.

Dudley has everything a guy could want in a mustache.  It’s classy, it’s elegant and it reeks of manliness.  All of these elements combine to create the perfect storm.

Classy, elegant and manliness all in one mustache. The perfect storm.

Will I be able to grow a Dudley?  Only time will tell.

The Movember Diaries: Day 1

November 1, 2010 Leave a comment

For those who don’t know today is, today is Movember 1st.  For those who don’t know what Movember is, it’s a time where men grow mustaches for prostate cancer awareness.

I’ve long wanted to grow a mustache but never had the fortitude to stick with. But with Movember here I’ve decided to finaly grow one and to chronicle my journey and hopefully join the pantheon of men with great mustaches.

Such men as: Albert Einstein, Burt Reynolds, Yosemite Sam, and Ron Burgundy.

So join me over the next 30 days which is sure to be a journey of manly proportions and facial hair.
