Working on a tattoo idea maybe. Not sure where its going yet.
It has been a little while since I’ve put something up, so I’ll make a quick little update on my life right now along with pictures to help.
A few weeks ago I decided to leave the iPhone train and hop onto Android with the Samsung S4. So far it’s been awesome. A little confusing at first, but I’m getting the hang of it. The pictures are crazy clear and beautiful. I am however, feeling the lack of certain apps compared to iOS.
Been playing lots of magic. I’m building a new EDH / Commander deck with Thalia as my general. It’s going to focus on slowing players down and pumping out artifacts creatures. We’ll see how it goes.
I’ve also been playing some newer video games. I downloaded Far Cry 3: Blood Dragons which is an amazing, nostalgic jaunt through neon lights, cyborgs, 80s references and monsters with lazer beam eyes. I highly recommend it. I was enjoying it so much, that I decided to pick up Far Cry 3 and try out the game FC3:BD was using as a basis. I’m enjoying it so far.
After the season finale of Arrow, I decided it was time to start watching it. Because of Netflix, I don’t really like waiting for shows from week to week. It didn’t take too long to download the series. I’m on episode 11 so far, and I’m really digging it. I don’t mind the changes to the character from the comic. I do however have a gripe about calling it “Starling City” instead of “Star City” like it is in the comics. I don’t see the reasoning.
Finally, because of summer’s impending arrival, my mohawk has come into full force and is getting much love from everyone.
That’s it for now.
Putting my kithkin tribal deck back together with some new tech.
My Izzet deck for tomorrow’s FNM. Pretty pumped.
Taking some pictures of desktop toys and posting to tumblr with my new phone.

I finished Hemlock Grove over the weekend and loved it. For those who don’t know what it is, the summary is that there is a grizzly murder in a small town called Hemlock Grove in Pennsylvania and there are two teens that take it upon themselves to solve the mystery.
I found it to be a little Hardy Boys with weird and supernatural overtones. The two protagonists are very interesting as their relationship evolves and you really see what its like for two people who never have friends to finally make some.
In general I find the show leaves more questions open then answering them, but I enjoy that. There is a great degree of mystery and macabre in the show. It takes itself serious enough to not just become True Blood or any of the current “monster shows”.
I found the liberties they took with traditional supernatural identities very refreshing and interesting. The special effects were also particular awesome and gruesome. As a side note, the musical theme was also really nice. It could be used in lots of varying scenes and had a great creepy vibe going.
I ordered the book so I could get a fully fleshed idea of what the show is based on, but the author directed and wrote the teleplay for the show, so I doubt it will be far off from the source material.
I would recommend this show to anyone that isn’t afraid of a little gore and likes the supernatural. I would also ask people to check it out, so that Netflix can keep pumping out original content.
I got to play with some Izzet cards on the weekend as well as some of the newer ones from Dragon’s Maze. I’m not usually an Izzet fan, but the synergy between some of the new cards made them seem like a viable and aggressive guild to build around.
It’ll have some decent burn and some decent control, all while pumping and swinging with some large creatures. I’m hoping for a good balance with it all. My only concern will be card draw if I’m spending my spells too fast.
Playing some pre-release today! My guild is Simic but due to the nature of the boosters and sever lack of good Simic cards, I built a Boros deck. So all my wins have progressed the Simic guild to the end of the maze. Woop Woop!
