Happy Ash Wednesday!

Ash-vs-Evil-Dead-Ashy-Slashy-Puppet-Prop-Replica-1It’s Ash Wednesday! Last year we reviewed all of the Evil Dead movies, but as things are more hectic this year, we decided to go with a simple, solemn viewing of “Evil Dead 2”.

To add to the festivities, Entertainment Earth has announced an amazing, full sized Ashy Slashy Puppet Prop Replica (pictured) from the amazing Ash vs. Evil Dead series! It’s not coming out until July, but preorders are open.

In the past we’ve shared quotes from the films to spread the wisdom of Ash. This time, let’s delve into the TV show:

Ash on Puppets

Puppets? I hate puppets! Even stunningly handsome ones.

Ash on Traveling

Yes, I’m upset. Yes, I’m behind the wheel. Yes I’m drunk, and maybe my license isn’t the fancy kind from the DMV, but at least I’m drunk!

 Ash on Coincidence

You’re the one that grew up your entire life looking for that book and you never found it. Me on the other hand, can’t fart without tripping over that thing, and I fart a lot!

Ash on Exercise

Brand spanking new hand, or…brand new ‘spanking’ hand!

Ash on Meditation

Ruby: I’m not dead you dumb bastard.
Ash: Oh wow, that was weird you were really still for a minute.

 

Ash on Racial Etiquette

Hey! He’s not “the Mexican” okay? He’s Pablo. “Pablo the Mexican.”

Ash on Education

Okay, uhh…obviously I know exactly what’s going on but, for the sake of these people, maybe you should explain.

Ash on Romance

Linda, from the moment I saw you I realized, that you were one of the only Lindas for me.

 

Ash on Nostalgia 

Wow. Last time I was here I was hopin’ to get laid. Didn’t quite work out that way. I did cut my own hand off with a chainsaw, though. Fun weekend.

So, however you celebrate the glory that is Ash, we hope that you do so surrounded by loving family, strong walls and very few deadites.

One Smart Car and 18 Ass-cheeks

I was minding my own business when my wife asked, “Can a bunch of people try and squeeze into your car?” Apparently the high-school is having a scavenger hunt and somehow stuffing innocent Smart Cars full of teenagers is an integral part of it. It took some convincing, but I gave in. Here’s the result:

SmartCar Pile-in

That’s 2009 Smart ForTwo Passion with nine teenagers stuffed inside. I told them that they could have doubled that if they used toddlers, but they seemed happy enough.

Indian Traffic is Amazing

I spent much of December in Southern India for business. I was awash in culture and history yet the most amazing thing I experienced the entire time was the traffic. It’s impossible to accurately describe the semi-organized mayhem, the constant multiaxial motion and the utter and complete lack of fucks-given. Here’s a 10 minute video that’s a pale, sad shadow of what I experienced:

Extra-Life LogoOur Extra-Life 2016 Marathon is over! All told, with various breaks for jobs, prior engagements and at least one scheduled SAT exam, we had involvement from nearly twenty people and raised $873.55 to help sick kids!

Although the marathon is over, you can still donate, if you like! Please click on a team member to do so!

This year was more subdued than previous years, yet still a blast.

We want to thank everybody that helped with this and hope to see them all next year!

Extra-Life LogoWe’re about four hours into our Extra-Life 2016 Marathon! There will be some drop-ins later, but we’ve squeezed 16 people into our home and raised over $800 so far!

You can still donate, if you like! Please click on a team member to do so! We’ve playing a lot of classic console games, portable games and board games. There was also an odd digression into completing somebody’s engineering homework…

Extra Life 2016 Marathon: The Calm before the Storm!

A Depressed Press SeriesPart 1 of 3 of Extra Life 2016

Extra-Life LogoWe’re getting ready to kick off our Extra-Life 2016 Marathon! In a little over 12 hours we will be invaded by over a dozen teenagers. They will fill our humble home with the sights, sounds and smells (oh when do the smells stop?!) of charity! And gaming. Lots of gaming.

Our team have currently raised $634 for sick kids. You can still donate, if you like (please click on a team member to donate!) – we can always use more sick kids; they’re so inspiring!

Things got a little weird at the 23rd hour last year:

We’ve got a PS4, a PS3, a Wii-U, a regular-old Wii and an impressive tower of board, card and dice games. Our Steam Link is ready to bring PC games to our TV and a proud, lonely PlayStation Vita stands united with a short-stack of Nintendo DS’s for private play. Controllers are charged and stacked like cordwood. Plentiful snacks are at hand! Caffeinated beverages are standing by!

Folks. We. Are. Ready!
