Random Pics, Chosen At Random. Randomly.

I'm a bit blah today. More than a bit, truth be told. I'm very mood-oriented, so not only do I try to surround myself with good people but I try hard to be one myself. It's why Not Brent, who's just bad beans, at his worst is only vaguely naughty.  I'm my own company and all that, so it pays to get along.

It's strange the thoughts that occur to you. While I wasn't a bad person, a decade ago I wasn't exactly nice either. I liked to argue, to fight - verbally and physically. I enjoyed it. I had zero tolerance for ignorance; I confused it with stupidity. For the genuinely stupid, I was practically cold.

Ah well. I'm not sure where this is going, except that for whatever reason when I get down I find it hard not to live there. From experience, I know it has to run its course.  Still, these days I have genuine people as friends.  Those are the best kind, but if you don't know why I'm afraid you'll learn.

Yes, I'm a Social Worker.  No, I didn't imagine that's what I'd be ten years ago.  Yes, there's a story but let's not pretend you want to hear it.  It ain't that kind of blog, is it?  Thus the interspersed pics!

Though my stories are pretty funny.  I'm usually the punchline, though.

My story after all. :)

Ah well - off to eat.  Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose restaurants.


PS: It's all relative though, isn't it?  Big Jim just had his stuff stolen.  My week isn't so bad at all.

Good luck, Jim.

There's almost no way in my world something can be bad when Shiner Bock is present.

I live with a mood oriented guy, and I totally understand your point. You've grown past who you used to be, but man it's easy to look at the postcard, isn't it?

Have a good night. Be well.

Quit your faggetry and write for the podcast! (whip cracks). We get paid to talk to interesting people. There are worse jobs. Also, worse places- trust me.

Shenzi: Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy.
Banzai: That's what I heard. Ed?

I love Brent the most <3

cheer up big guy, I can really relate to being ruled by moods; I'm mega bad for it myself. Keep yourself in the company of friends and people you love and have fun with and you'll feel yourself coming out of it.

Don't get stuck in a rut, try something different =]

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
