[Wall of Text] Played Origami King

Posted by JoshDreamland on Sept. 10, 2020, 9:13 p.m.

A few years ago, I wrote a hell of a rant about Sticker Star. Sorry excuse for a game, terrible excuse for a Paper Mario installment. Color Splash was marginally better. It felt as if the dev team had personally read my blog and addressed each item in the lowest-effort …

Haven't blogged in a while

Posted by JoshDreamland on June 4, 2017, 11:42 a.m.

[ I'm posting this blog a week and some after I started writing it, because shit happens. ]

Haven't blogged in a while. Didn't realize how long a while until I came back and noticed that Spike was now my age. I'm afraid if I don't start writing more often, …

Played Sticker Star

Posted by JoshDreamland on Nov. 22, 2015, 10:03 a.m.

I haven't made a game in years, and what's sadder is that until recently, I hadn't played one in years, either. I do play some Terraria from time to time, but since it's more of a multi-player game, and coordinating with people becomes harder as you become older, I just …

Tooth Hurty

Posted by JoshDreamland on Oct. 28, 2015, 9:26 p.m.

Scene: my bed, yesterday morning, 2:30 AM.

I wake up, and it feels as though someone has punched me in the lower jaw. I can't believe how bad this hurts; what have I done? One of my teeth must be acting up, I assume. I grab a dental floss stick …

Such a racket

Posted by JoshDreamland on April 11, 2015, 10:25 a.m.

I swear, what is wrong with economics?

I kind of live in a little bubble, nowadays, wherein everything is free and wonderful and there are puppies and kitties and also I'm shitting what appears to be bird seed, on the pinecone. Such is life at Google, I guess; not …

On Sonder

In other news, Reddit has invented a word best explained by this image:

You've probably seen it already, but if not, well, now you have.

Today was my last day in Mountain View, which I was visiting for a series of tech-talks and team-building exercises. Do you remember the feeling …

This is blog

Posted by JoshDreamland on Jan. 16, 2014, 4:46 p.m.

I don't have any particular theme to rant about today. Shit happens, I guess.

News point: I've graduated.

Dreams involving my school, my landlord, my major, etc, haven't stopped. Actually, they've pretty much just started. I never gave a shit enough about any of it to have such dreams in …

I promised toast

Posted by JoshDreamland on Nov. 20, 2013, 10 a.m.

…a shitty blog. SO HERE GOES.

Finals week ends in THREE weeks, ONE day. My life theretofore will look like this:


Act I: Survive Wednesday. On this day, you will catalog countless training images for a sign language bot.

Act II: Survive Thursday. This will involve presenting the …

High School Memories

Posted by JoshDreamland on Nov. 9, 2013, 10:41 p.m.

When I was in high school, my fellow scientists and I sat down at our cafeteria table one day and developed an amazing invention. The device, decidedly avionic, was designated "OFUK-Airplane." Its hull consisted of a styrofoam container of applesauce and assorted fruit chunks, complete with a plastic lid. Its …

A Day in the Life of Josh

Posted by JoshDreamland on Oct. 31, 2013, 11:48 p.m.

When I was younger, I used to blog about my life, and at some point, I eventually figured that my life is boring enough for me that I shouldn't bore everyone else with it. But now I think my life may actually be boring enough for everyone, and so I …
