Evil Doesn't Sleep, Why Should You?

by Rainier on Sept. 2, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Not that the title is of any great importance, but it's based on a sticker I have hanging on top of my monitor, and since I apparently don't sleep much, certain people thought it was appropriate to have it there.

If you haven't checked out the new GTA: Ballad of Tony Gay yet, be sure to do so.  It's pretty cool (and I'm not even a fan).

Just watched the newest "Weeds," and while I'm glad that the crazy drama from last season seems to have subsided, this episode's ending sure was a surprise. Good stuff.

"Raising the Bar" had its season finale last week, so I guess I'll be able to spend more time in CrimeCraft. I'm a gunsmith so my gang is counting on me to craft them some good weapons, but leveling up your character and your profession takes a while.

Where's that 4-Slot SR, damnit ...
