Today, I published my first post on ThemeShaper about the benefits of reviewing WordPress themes. It’s called, Up Your Theming Game by Reviewing Themes.
I attended my first MAGFest, a music and gaming festival, this weekend and had a blast. A few friends have gone for several years, but I always skipped it. This year, I’m glad I finally decided to go.
I played Super Mario Brothers and Tecmo Super Bowl on the old-school Nintendo and enjoyed listening to The Megas and Bit Brigade live. Watching Bit Brigade’s lead singer plow through Metroid while they played a set was epic.
I had the most fun playing Fútbol Forever, a table top space soccer arcade game still in development. It’s frustratingly hard, but so satisfying, fun as hell and will make you yell at the screen in anger and elation all in the same match. So good!
I’m already excited for next year’s MAGFest – I think I’m hooked.
Today, I had to say goodbye to my buddy, Nemo. I’ll miss his happy screeches and nose nuzzles. Thanks for being an awesome dog, buddy!
Neil deGrasse Tyson answers the question, “What’s the meaning of life?” Asked by a six-year-old boy, here’s the heart of his response:
“You manufacture it for yourself and for others. So when I think of ‘meaning’ in life, I ask, ‘Did I learn something today that I didn’t know yesterday, bringing me a little closer to knowing all that can be known in the universe?’”
