I signed up for Gamefly last week, and I honestly have no fucking clue why it took me so long to do that. I hardly every play any video games that aren't Mario Kart because I have always had a hard time justifying spending sixty fucking dollars on something that I'll use for roughly ten hours and then never look at again. Sometimes I'd play a game and then trade it in for credit at GameStop and put it toward something else, but that system doesn't work very well when there generally aren't that many games I feel like playing.
TL;DR -- I've played through 90% of The Last of Us since Friday evening. It's one of the greatest games I've ever played. It's a zombie stealth/shooter from the game studio that made the Uncharted games -- also among the greatest games I've ever played, each and all. I'm so fucking enthusiastic about it, I can't stop thinking about it.
Calling it now. The psychologist lady is the killer, and she likes to manipulate her previous patients before killing them herself. Only because Dexter's writing is so bad am I even thinking of this terrible ending.
I'll give Dexter just this -- they've managed to legitimately surprise me in, like, 80% of their season finales. But if that British snatch isn't the Big Bad this season, I'll eat a bowl of my own shit.

Ended up with free tickets to the Guster/Ben Folds Five/Barenaked Ladies show last night (thanks, Nadine's mom!).
All three were huge favorites of mine sometime between 1996 and 2000. All three put on great shows (particularly BNL; can't even try to lie, I still love them.)
Then we went to Denny's. Then I ate a Moons Over My Hammy. Them my mom gave me an extra long hug when I got home to see if I had been smoking. Then I watched two hours of Kids in the Hall and a re-run of Win Ben Stein's Money on Comedy Central. Then Airheads came on for the millionth time, so I played Mario 64 instead. I played it for so long I was almost late for homeroom! When I got there, Mr. Bakovich took my chessboard away and he didn't even say why! I would have gotten detention if he'd heard what I said to Trevor after he walked away.
