I love Alexander Shulgin. I've loved him from the first moment I read about him. He is my idol, my hero, my sun, my O2.

Spring Break 2010, Woooo!

Jersey Shore XXX: A Porn Parody

I looked up and there was a muscle-bound guido, with his guidette whore, pushing a baby stroller toward me to fight. He didn't have a shirt on; I don't believe they sell shirts in Staten Island.

Final Fantasy XIII

Final Fantasy XIII is a great game, but only if you play it on its own terms. It's a serious break from the way previous Final Fantasy games have played, which can be shocking or disappointing if you want a familiar experience.
