Yeah, yeah, I know ”The Wolf of Wall Street” is based on a true story and that’s why there are so many more male characters than female characters and that’s just how Wall Street is and all that jazz. But how cool does this version look?

Homemade steak sauces are making steaks better….
Buckwheat Zydeco -Tee Nah Nah (1985)
Have the challenges of writing Stick of Truth given you an insight into why games traditionally haven’t been very good at comedy?
A lot of comedy is timing and it’s hard to control comic timing in an open world where you’re not in control of when the joke happens. It’s not really a writer’s medium, because you can’t write and mould and change on the fly like you can in a live show. Timing is one of those things that’s pretty crucial to comedy and pretty hard for video games.
“About 80 percent of Russian gas exports to Europe pass through Ukraine. Europe, in turn, depends on Russia for 40 percent of its imported fuel. According to Mikhail Korchemkin, head of East European Gas Analysis, a consulting firm in Pennsylvania, the most important pipelines that run through Ukraine are the ones leading to Slovakia. They will eventually take gas to Germany, Austria and Italy.”
I knew that Russia’s interest in Ukraine was based on economics, and that their recent invasion was centered around this fact. Now we know exactly why: the control of oil and who profits from it. Huge powers like America and Russia do not mobilize for war because of political or state conflicts anymore, but for money.
Recently watching the HBO show True Detective, I caught this tune being played at the end of the first episode. Reminded how awesome of a song it is.

You’d be hard pressed to find a better Psych-rock band these days than the Black Angels.

If you’re familiar with that part of Cambridge, it’s recognizable. It’s just amazing how little was there 34 years ago!
