I Didn't Know Groundhogs Could See Their Shadow...Twice
Michael

Yesterday, 7 teams cozied up at Lost Lake Cafe on a rainy-winter night. I can’t believe it’s May already! Just a couple more months, and we should be out of Winter by July! It felt nice to sub a quiz in the heart of Cap Hill, the folks are just friendlier, prettier and more drug-free than other neighborhoods in Seattle *ahem - Belltown!* Round 1 started out with questions about popular films, in a category called “I Think IMDb is Broken”.  All teams received a perfect score with the exception of Hiding in the Bushes.

Comey come lately
Chaz_Bazz

The news is all a buzz over the firing of the Director of the F.B.I. and we think there is something fishy going on. Trump could be hiding something, such as really close ties with the Russian Government and maybe we’ll find out that it was all speculation and there was no actual wrong doing. LMAO, the actions speak way louder than words here though. I must say that staying up until 2 am last night to watch all the Sally Yates testimony was fun. I like how various people tried to challenge her on her decision to block the travel

Stuff 'n' Things le Blog
Chaz_Bazz

Hey what up Lost Lake Café! We had an awesome night of quiz last night. Round one was interesting cause it didn’t have the usual hint structure you commonly find in round 1. I’m surprised a question about “take it from the top” relating to music or musicals. I guess that would have been too on the nose huh? I was happy to see that there was some science on the quiz. Everybody seemed to know their various gases pretty well all things considered. I think 6 was the lowest score we got on that round. Found 4 actually gives me an idea for a new round called “the sincerest form of flattery” a round on imitation. Maybe a little sad that Xerox

Count 100 Days! (coming soon)
Chaz_Bazz

So we're nearing 100 days of 45's presidency so I guess everybody is doing their review. Throughout the years I've always thought to myself, the President himself doesn't have a lot of control over my day to day life and it would seem for the MOST part this is true of 45. Though that's only me though. I can't sit here and think that others haven't felt the pain of not being able to come into the country or being deported because a false narrative about their people exists in the ether. What has been generally eye opening to me is the number of different viewpoints the country actually has. Really hearing conservatism for the first time it was interesting hearing things like

United we stand, divided we crash.
Chaz_Bazz

Watching the United Airlines debacle unfold on social media is interesting. Whenever a big event like this goes viral the reactions of my friends, strangers and media outlets at large is a fascinating sight. The first thing I noticed was the headlines. When I looked up “Man gets dragged off of plane” I saw various frameworks of presenting the same story. BBC was the best with “United Airlines: Passenger forcibly removed from flight”. That gives you a good jist of what happened. Others said along the lines of

Kinda Funny
Chaz_Bazz

So a few weeks ago on “The Day without Women” a Game Industry Professional by the name of Colin Moriarty put out this tweet: “Finally some peace and quiet #ADayWithoutWomen”   The internet grew with fervor over this tweet; he ended up leaving a long time gig over the outcry. So he then proceeded to go on various outlets like the Joe Rogan show and The Rubin Report to express his grievances with the aftermath

VR is that JAM!
Chaz_Bazz

I’ve been thinking a lot about VR and AR and I think you can do a lot of cool things with it. I finally got a chance to check out the Oculus Rift and I must say that I was impressed. I wasn’t aware that the level of immersion the device gives you had advanced that far. It tracks your head and you’re able to experience the environment like never before. It’s grander than first person and I’m really excited to see what they do with it. Part of me wonders if it’ll become like Ready Player One, where total immersion through really awesome haptic feedback devices will be the real future. I mean I can’t wait to be in a zombie

That Dragon Cancer
Chaz_Bazz

“Untimely Death? When is there ever a timely death?” I remember asking this of my Dad when I was younger cause it didn’t make sense to me. This was when I was starting to notice the language people would use surrounding death with in news media at the time. I think I was about 9. At 9 years old the hardest thing I lost was a game of NBA Jam. I did go to the funeral of my Great-Grandfather at 7 but I didn’t have much of a relationship with him so I didn’t feel any type of way. It wouldn’t be long before I lost Uncles and Cousins but they lived so far away they didn’t have much of an effect on me either. But

Fun is different for everyone.
Chaz_Bazz

Lots of things follow conventions; in some cases that's good cause it goes into standards and quality checks. If these things didn't have a high level of quality in them one could...die.   THANKFULLY, video games don't have that problem. (the actually dying part that is) We do have conventions though and the expectation that games should and will follow them.   BUT Games aren't just science, they're an art form as well. Now art is expression so why can't a game break a convention or two or 500 in Dark Souls case?

Think Big[oted]
Chaz_Bazz

Oh Ben Carson. Why you even talkin’ man? I remember reading both of your books “Gifted Hands” and “Think Big”. You see my dad wanted me to know that despite the fact that I was black, that was no reason to think that I should be held back as a person. Your books helped me with that. My dad would always point to allegories that Ben Carson acting up in school as a kid was much like when I would act out. Dad, may you rest in peace but FUCK YOU. I acted out based on unfair treatment anytime it was presented to me. I was acting out against authority for the sake of authority. I was acting against drawing conclusions based on summations.

So you want to have a rummage sale?
Chaz_Bazz

Introduction Thanks for selecting this book to learn all the ins and outs at being success at Flea Market selling. I know what you’re thinking “what does he know about selling?”. I’ll tell you a story. When I was about 7 years old, my Mom would go and sell our old stuff at Flea Markets. When it came to a time she started selling my stuff at Flea Markets I got a little miffed. I wanted to know why I couldn’t sell my own wares. So my parents in their stroke of genius decided to let me sell. It was rocky at first but then after a few years I really got my groove.  In this book I’m

Could America actually be 11 different "countries"?
Chaz_Bazz

Hey what up Lost Lake! I Just got finished with American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America and I think it really made me understand how we got where we are today. In reflecting on it I saw where I fit in it all and how it even shaped my world views, even more so than I thought. There are 11 total but I’ll be focusing on the ones I grew up around and how it lead to my weird interaction with my surroundings in my youth. So Philly is smack

Chaz_Bazz

Hey what’s up Lost Lake! So if you’re reading this on Valentine’s day or Singles Awareness day I hope you’re having a good one. If you’re like some of us out there and are lamenting that you’re single on this day and don’t know what to do, don’t worry I gotchu. It’s interesting to look at this day from a sociological point of view. I usually see the same tropes every year. If you’re in a loving relationship you thank your significant other for being amazing, the dinners you’re having and maybe even a little bit of your life story. If you’re single and longing for something like this it can be especially hard

I’ve been thinking a lot about how we got to where we are, but I’ve been asking that question based on how can we get middle america working again. Being the introverted person I am, I’ve spent years on my own trying to understand the human condition. I of course don’t understand everything but your career is one that our society has put a lot of value on. Sometimes I have a hard time remembering that there are things that humans at large value that others might just be ambivalent too. I have concerns with how

Are Humans Absurd? (Redux)
Chaz_Bazz

I was thinking given the climate we're currently under, re-blogging this blog I wrote a while back is a good place to start thinking from when we look at the odd behaviors of us human beings.  “You humans are absurd, Rook. Furious when you’re not in control, terrified when you are.” – Iver The above quote is from Banner Saga. My friend brought this up as on of those things that we Humans tend to do but I think I know why. Ego, pride, being self-centered or how ever else you’d want to

Year of the Rooster!
Chaz_Bazz

Since I'm in kinda a rut I'm sharing my thoughts on the social and economic struggles in parts of America today. Eh, I think it's that way here based on the historic relationship whites have had with minorities. If I speak from anecdotal experiences plus observing how my various friends act, ethnic privilege theory come to play whenever it's proposed that the "other" doesn't have the same level of autonomy as the "white class". Since this has been used against us, Natives, Japanese and Hispanics throughout the years, we understand that some whites correlate various beliefs to race. That's why it's a constant discussion point here in the US. On the other end, you
