Ode to Overwatch

Overwatch has been out for just over a month now, and it has burrowed it's way into my heart like some weird alien parasite. This happens every now and then with certain games. There are ones that force me to think about them when I'm not playing, and learn a silly amount of knowledge about it. I could probably use that time on something more constructive but hey ho! Minecraft, Battlefield 3, World of Warcraft, Kerbal Space Program and Cities Skylines have all had that honour also.

Digital Negativity Audit

Thursday, 14 July 2016

Ahoy-hoy everyone, you all having a super week? I hope so. I want to talk about a little experiment I have been trying. But first it needs a little bit of background to explain it properly. At 15 I was first diagnosed with depression, this led to me taking medication for a few years. At 18 I went cold turkey off them (definitely a bad idea), and being really bad at managing my mental health for 8 years. But that's a story for another time. This year has been a turning point for me , I've started to take meds again (ones that actually seem to work), and have taken significant changes to help me become happier. Depression is weird and there is no quick fix, as I've seen with members of my family it can be something that needs to be treated on and off for the rest of your life. That really sucks the big one! But in the spirit of being happy and positive I'm going to fight back against the miserable bastard. This is why I've come up with the Digital Negativity Audit. Well I may not have come up with it but I sure as hell gave it this pithy name.

Tuesday, 5 July 2016

Yes yes cartoons aren't real, but sometimes the characters do some real messed up stuff. Stuff that if any real person even attempted they would be given a one way ticket to the slammer. So here is a list of just a few of cartoons most wanted deviants. Also to make it more interesting I left out all characters that are meant to be evil.
