the Beginning...

Well, this blog is just being born and there's got to be a first post. This blog is going to be an outlet for my thoughts on whatever seems to pass through. I'm sure it will mostly consist of posts regarding video games and films. But who knows what else I decide is worthy of mention here. I can have quite the wandering mind sometimes, so I'll try to keep some sort of formula to this place. We'll begin with a little something from the growing phenomenon of Minecraft.

Minecraft is a fantastic sandbox game with almost limitless potential. It is pretty hard to describe in just a few words, but epic and infinite both leap to mind. Watch this brief fan-made trailer to see what I mean.

Now, in case anyone here is interested in trying it out, there is a free version available to try on their website. It's really just a building mode, without the adventuring, crafting and mobs, but it gives you a feel for the real thing. There are also some really great multiplayer servers where I've seen up to 32 people playing together in the same world. If you've got a lot of time on your hands, you can really burn through it with this game.


  1. I never understood the appeal of this game. Maybe I'll give it a try.

  2. also, sorry for the double post, but that video is seriously epic

  3. Minecraft is delicious.

    Here's to lots of interesting posts, sir.
