Even When I'm Not Blogging... I Am

I'm not bored of blogging, I'm in a funk about gaming!

(Before Brent gets all whiny, you guys should really check out The Master Manipulator (every store needs one)'s Top Ten.  The dude has worked a blog for a year now... and who thought it would last six months?  Not this Green With Envy Topical Figmental.  Here's to another year!)

Still, even when I'm not blogging I'm blogging.  Tuesday's Bell article was pretty darn good, if I do say so myself:

Editorial: White Dwarf, or Not, Your Option

As of this moment, it hit 323 comments - and no, Louis, they weren't all me!

And of course, there's always the Weekly Top X... but if you ever thought Lauby rides herd on me to make sure the thing gets done every week... if you ever suspected he has to poke me every Thursday to get off my butt and finish my part...

...you'd be correct.  So what happens when he's on vacation?

The Weekly Top X - Defining the 3-Way 3 Ways

I have to manage the whole darn thing!  I wasn't even able to trick Loquacious into doing most of the work this time, either.

Ever tried corralling someone called SinSynn?  Well, don't - it ain't happening!

Still and all, the controlled chaos worked out for a pretty interesting post, and as always some great blog posts were highlighted for your viewing pleasure.


So, see?  Even if I'm not here on Strictly Average, I'm around.  But since I tend to keep this as my own, personal playground of the mind (what's that about 'my own' chauncy?) there usually has to be something in my hobby world to show off or talk about, no?

Well, there is and there isn't.  I've been pretty bummed ever since WarGames Con, so I haven't even processed the video I do have.  And currently the local area is fixated on Confrontation Lou.0...

...which yea, I'll have something say on very soon!

Like, "Evil Homer, I won my last game against Little Barrera, so there!"

(How about something less prepubescent and more mainstream applicable?)

Ah well, there's content in the pipe, boys and girls, Unicorns and kiddos.

Hey, Brent, just curious if you've taken a look at Malifaux? It's been exploding in our local club (thank goodness with what I invested to get people interested, lol) and, with your love of Confrontation (and what little I know of it) I think you should give it a go. I'd love to see you paint up one of the crews, seeing what you pull off with GWs stuff is impressive enough. Looking forward to that new content.

I think your suffering from Chaos Deamons withdrawal. Go back to playing them and I promise you'll start feeling a whole loot better.

I figure you just missed me. *hugs*

Scribd.com is great for old whtie dwarf issues :)

(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.
