Zero Lives Remaining: A mini review and a giveaway



Late one night, I was browsing through Twitter, and I came across a tweet for a book called Zero Lives Remaining by Adam Cesare. Usually I would ignore what was basically an ad, but the book's description intrigued me. A horror story set in an arcade? Sounds like fun to me. And a lot of fun it was.

A Guide to the Star Wars Universe

I don't think I truly started to appreciate Star Wars until the early to mid 90's. That's when I finally saw The Empire Strikes Back, and I managed to catch an old "Making of" special on the Sci-Fi channel. It gave me a new appreciation for just how much work went into creating the creatures and ships of the original trilogy. It's also when I discovered a handy little guide, hiding on a friend's bookshelves.

Some of you are a positive influence. Imagine that!

I've been following Brian, Mason, and Laura as they take part in the Minimalist Game. You start the first day by getting rid of one item. The next day two items, then three and so on. By the last day, you're giving up 31 things that were originally adding to the clutter in your life. Watching their posts on Instagram sort of inspired me to go through my stuff, and start thinning the herd. Here's what I came up with, 
















There's still a lot more to go, but this has made a visible dent in my office, closets and bookshelves. Next up, the dreaded garage!

Now you're reading with power, Worlds of Power


If you've never heard of Worlds of Power, it was a series of books published by Scholastic that were based on various Nintendo properties. They were basically just a way to get kids to put down their controllers and, you know, actually read a book or two. Apparently it worked, because over a million Worlds of Power books were sold before they went out of print. I only ever owned one of them, a novelization of the game Mega Man 2.
