GAMING: Smashtastrophe

We cordially invite you to the first invitational SMASHTASTROPHE, our custom-built set of Super Smash Bros. Melee events! Using our super-selective secret decision making process, we have built a set of twenty-five (plus one) of the most balanced, most competitive-friendly, and most fair events possible under the SSBM engine!

To celebrate, we’ve made a video of our inaugural stream for your viewing perusal. Behold us struggling to speedrun Melee the only way we know how: with a bunch of arbitrary nonsense holding us back!

REVIEWS: The Rat-Ron-Ratings

In case you fell asleep from the years of 1997-2007 or were otherwise lucky enough to be spared from the onslaught, Harry Potter is a quasi-beloved fantasy book franchise about a little wizard boy and his little wizard friends.

One of those kids is named Ron Weasley, who briefly had a pet rat named Scabbers. Pet rats weren’t very well-regarded by the general populace at this point, but around the release of the film adaptations, quite a few people found the little rat man quite charming and it quite inexplicably became profitable to sell rat-themed merchandise* to wee ones.

Then Scabbers turned out to be an old man pretending to be a rat to deceive the children, but that’s not relevant to this article. What we’re talking about today: SCABBERS MERCHANDISE! And uh, Ron too, I guess.

*Incidentally, this is an extended advertisement for my upcoming zine, Rat Facts. It’s facts about rats.

OCCULT: Summer Solstice 2018

Today is the Summer Solstice! This is the longest day of the year, and the official beginning of the Summer season – as well as one of the most important dates of the year for pagans. The Solstice (Litha, if you practice a Germanic paganism or are a Wiccan) is the height of the year, where all life is in full bloom and are filled with the spirit of renewal.

ASSOCIATIONS: Today marks the beginning of the year where you can enjoy life to the fullest. Stay out late, get yourself an ice cream, or enjoy the flowers blooming. Summer, to us, is the season of excess and we try to make it a point to live up to that every year.

Financially, Summer is the period of time where your saving should be paying off. Over the Winter, and through the Spring, you’ve been pinching your pennies while you look forward to what the next year could bring. Well, it’s time for you to stop waiting and reach out for it! I’m not advising you to spend unwisely, of course… but also you should be spending unwisely. It is Summer.

To forecast for the upcoming Summer, I’ve drawn a three card tarot reading.

GAMING: Pokemon Crystal Randofuser – Part 1: The Slamma

Hey Eggheadz! We’ve got something new for you – we’re doing a Pokemon Crystal Randofuser Nuzlocke run!

What the hell is that, you say? The Pokemon Crystal Randofuser is a randomizer program for Pokemon Crystal with a unique twist – instead of just randomizing the Pokemon, it mashes them together with others to create all-new Pokemon hybrids! We’ll be playing a version of Crystal altered with this program along with Nuzlocke rules – meaning that all Pokemon that faint must be released, and we can only catch the first Pokemon in an area.

So jump right in, and join us on a journey of unimaginable heartbreak and disappointment as we make valuable, irreplaceable friends that die forever! FUN!
