So about a week ago deviantART had a community challenge for a new badge based on a popular deviation that was on their site since 2006. The objective was to draw said subject, in then you’d receive the badge. The original piece is a pear with a very human mouth, known as the Biting Pear of Salmanca.
I got mine, all right. While the caption doesn’t make sense, it does hearken back to when I first saw this; on a meme on 9gag in which the pear had been saying something similar.
It’s been a bit since I’ve posted something that wasn’t me coloring, but this had a different grade of advancement and did want to share. April Fools.
I checked out an interesting sidescrolling game by the name of Whispering Willows. It was indie and it was partial horror, all mixed with puzzle elements. I approve!
Had this small happening while playing Overwatch in Quick Play one evening. A supercharged Roadhog kept killing the team, who was powered by three Mercys. While it took awhile for the team to figure out what to do, I already saw parallels from an old side-shooter game I used to play; Gradius. Suffice to say my approach worked.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Remember to keep large grazing animals away from your holiday decorations. 🙂

So when my aunt came to visit this holiday season, she whipped up some pepper pot for my mom. Sadly they didn’t have lamb for it (that was used on curry instead), so she used a chunk of goat meat in its creation.
Apparently you let this stew in a crock pot overnight to cook. I have to get the specifics again on how to create. But you add pepper and spice stuff to it, hence the name.
This was my first exposure to the dish, and the first time I ate goat. It actually wasn’t too bad; this one wasn’t tender and very chewy. Otherwise, it typically goes with bread and you use it to suck up the gravy.
It was a welcome change to get to eat a more genuine Guyanese dish.
During my offline life, I got to go to Yamacon 2016 (which happened to be under my nose all this time!) There I got to meet Charlet Chung, no other than D.Va’s voice actress from Overwatch. This video is a result of her awesome skills making me a custom voicemail!
Week 7’s montage is up! A lot of POTG’s in this one. This will be one of the last of Saving People’s Behinds for a good while, as I no longer used Fraps to record my footage after October 1st.
In 2007 I was coming to the realization that I was barely making headway with friends and social life at college. Everyone was so country, dating someone or people old enough to be your parents. I wasn’t part of the “I graduated from Morristown High School” group, the ghetto click or “redneck romeo”. I was really standalone, slowly discovering that there were more sociable people online than the people in front of me.
In February or March of that year I had started getting into contact with one of my cousins. He, his brother and another cousin were all attending East Tennessee State University, or ETSU. I hadn’t talked to them much earlier, but was beginning to learn that this mystical college was well within reach. All I had known that it was a big school and was more like a “university”.

This is yet another book that should’ve been read in a month, but with my style, stared at it for six months then decided to read it one night when I was not in the middle of an Overwatch or Supreme Commander match.
I’ve always been a fan of Lemony Snicket’s work; I was familiar with a few of his A Series of Unfortunate Events books while growing up, though I hadn’t kept tabs on him after I turned 16. While browsing the bargain shelf in the young adult section in Books-A-Million during May, I ran across this book. At $4, who was I to argue?
