February: ‘Unique Blogger’ Award & Nominations

Giving props to others that are doing really great things

Big thanks to Luke @Hundstrasse for the unique blogger shoutout. It’s nice to see fellow creatives in the blogosphere dropping by and getting in touch. I have tuned into a few of Luke’s recent Jurassic Park: Trespasser streams and thoroughly enjoyed watching him both successfully and unsuccessfully get eaten by velociraptors.

A lot of what got me interested in blogging (and probably for you as well) was the freedom to write about basically anything — knowing these things have an audience beyond just myself is nice to see. Be warned, I’m unsure what direction my ADD may steer this fledgeling ship, so just about anything is possible.

Like Luke, I’m trying to be more conversational and engaging with my content. I severely underestimated the amount of time and commitment it would take to get there. Thanks to a solid group of like-minded people, it’s been getting easier. Kim @LaterLevels is a shining example. You are good at what you do, Kim.


So three things about myself…..

I don’t need an alarm clock to wake up at a certain time: I just kind of wake up. Most of my family and friends can’t understand how it’s possible, but I have been doing it for as far back as I can remember. Most of me wishes I could trade this petty ability for something more majestic, like teleportation or cooking.

I’m a huge Jean Claude Van-Damme fan: Bloodsport is one of the greatest movies ever made. I’ll let my coffee mug speak for my JCVD fandom.


I don’t enjoy condiments (like at all)

With that out of the way, I’m eager to get to the questions. I haven’t put any real thought into my answers—full disclose I haven’t looked at the questions until just this minute so this will be fairly off the cuff (which I prefer).

Questions from @Hundstrasse

Q: Which game characters outfit do you wish that you could legitimately wear? (I’ve already said somewhere that I’d go with Link’s Barbarian ensemble)

A: I’m a pretty simple person with a blind eye turned to things like increasing my sex appeal, muscle mass or how I look in a tank-top. With that said, Duke Nukem.

Q: You wake up one day and ARGH! You’re Luigi! … even worse, it’s Mario’s Birthday! What do you buy him as a present?

A: Shoes have evolved a great deal over time. My guess is he’d appreciate a fresh pair of running shoes with a good insert.

Q: Grashelumping is a word I just made up, what does it mean? (ok, I’ve done a similar question before, but I really like it!)

A: Is this not the creature I just discovered on Praxis 9 in No Man’s Sky?
