This blog is primarily a place for John Little, noted Zork player and bum, to regale the world with his thoughts.  Why would the world wish to be regaled thusly?  Because the world doesn’t know what good entertainment is.

Once, this blog was primarily meant for reviews.  But really, who wants to only see reviews?

  1. Hey, you completely missed November!

    Oh, and you might not have noticed, but your name is right up there in the “About” section. Anyone could google Crater Labs and find it! (Wish it had been that easy for me )

  2. Hey, it left out my “pout”, which was in angled brackets right after “that easy for me”. Guess you’ll just have to imagine it. Not quite the same effect. *pout*

  3. I didn’t miss November so much as I actively didn’t see anything during it, and as such I had nothing to review. 😦

    Also, I was busy all month long during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and since I didn’t quite hit the goal it’ll keep me busy for a while longer.

    I’m not sure what I’ll review next. If I can find some spare cash lying around (not likely this month) I may review Issue 13 of the City of Heroes MMORPG (the only MMORPG that’s still keeping my interest after all this time.) But I’m not sure. Issue 13’ll probably have dozens of noteworthy reviews by then. Now Issue 14: The Architect, that one I’ll need to clear my calendar and save some bucks for.

    Maybe next I’ll review the release of Wave 2 of Perplex City’s second season of puzzle cards (assuming they ever arrive in the mail, grrrr…)

    Oh, and yes, I know that my name is up there. It was an intentional decision on my part (though I’m still not gonna go out of my way to advertise it to people.)

  4. Ah, now you’ve got me curious – what was the goal for NaNoWriMo? I presume it was writing, of some sort, although I can’t imagine it being a whole novel. Perhaps a chapter?

    Here’s something you could review, and it is free. It’s a radio show and is available on youtube. It’s actually a second story, but also stands alone. I’ve listened to about half of it and it is quite good. I tried to find somewhere to buy the first story (and the third), but had trouble. Anyway, here is the address on youtube:

    Here is the web site of the original producer:
    As you can see there, all of the episodes are “temporarily unavailable”. So you can’t buy them.

    So……you made a conscious decision to demystify yourself, at least partially? I guess that is wise, since when your first work is published, you’ll want everyone you know to buy a copy, and they’ll need to know your name to do that. 😉

  5. Actually, yes. NaNoWriMo is an entire novel.


    The goal is 50,000 words, and while that’s not too incredibly difficult (1666 words per day would put you over), I was battling for time available on a computer even more than normal this month. And ironically, now that December is here, the computer is free (so I’m intent on finishing the book.)

    As for the thing to review, that would require a connection that has bandwidth or average connection speeds or something. I have neither of those at the moment. 😉 Thanks for the thought, though, I’ll try to figure out a way to view it.

    As for making the decision to put my name up here, it wasn’t about demystifying myself so much as it was that it’s a different kind of thing. This isn’t a roleplaying place like h2g2, so anonymity isn’t as fun, I think. I forget my exact reasoning. Made sense at the time, though.

  6. I checked out nanowrimo and found your author page. You’re almost half way there! Way better than the 2 buddies listed there. I enjoyed the excerpt too.

    The thing to review is a radio show (no video), so perhaps a so-so connection would be sufficient. It’s posted on youtube in about 12 parts, so each part wouldn’t be too big a download, hopefully.

    Of course it doesn’t make sense to be anonymous here, but doing so also makes it easy to lose your anonymity on h2g2 too. If someone goes searching, that is. I haven’t been to h2g2 in probably a year or more, so I don’t know if you still go there either. I should go have a look. 😉

  7. Okay, this is kinda funny.

    I went to h2g2 today and checked out your page while I was there. And guess what? There was a message for you from SEA, saying she thinks she knows your name. Posted 2 days ago, right when I was saying you could lose your anonymity on h2g2 too.

  8. Interesting. Well, if someone can’t figure out where I lived based on the clues I put on h2g2, they’re not looking hard enough. 😉

  9. If you don’t review webcomics… why not just enjoy the show 😉 (http://brillenschnitzel.wordpress.com)
