So Mass Effect 3 is coming out on the 6th, and it turns out it’s not the only thing coming out that day. The “From Ashes” DLC that introduces a new character into the Mass Effect franchise will also be hitting on launch day for the price of $10. If you’re tuned into any Mass Effect wavelength on the planet, then you’re no doubt aware that some fans of the franchise, many of whom have already pre-ordered the game, find this as not only an affront to them as a customer but also as a human being. Slinging hyperbolic phrases like “[This] is not worth what little dignity I have left!” and “FUCK YOU BIOWARE. I’m really hoping that’s the EA side of you guys talking because this first-day DLC bullshit is a load of crap. That’s like saying I can watch Star Wars, but I’ll have to pay an extra 5 bucks to hear Darth Vader speak. Maybe when you start learning how to respect and value your customers, you’ll see your precious sales numbers rise. Until then, go fuck yourself with a dildo rolled in glitter.” (sic) abound on any news post about the DLC that has comments enabled.

With all the ftp issues sorted out, taking on a few less hours during the week, and starting some new ADHD meds, I’ve found the time, ability, and desire to work on the blog again. Much of this blog so far has been ranting and religion, with a splash of video game love thrown in there. I plan to do more of the first and third, and cut back on the religion. But not this post. Why you ask? Because, frankly, religion is empty. It’s a hallow, vacuous shell of seeming virtue that, at the first logical inquiry posing the ever-damning ‘why,’ falls apart at the fault of it’s own legs.
I hate mornings. I really really hate mornings. It never fails that no matter how much sleep I get the night before or how much I make it a part of my routine, Waking up at 7:30 always leaves me haggard and drained the rest of the day, whereas sleeping in til 11:00 or noon I feel great after about 20-30 minutes of hating the world. However, if I wake up before that I spend not just a half an hour hating my life and everyone else’s, but more like the first 4-5 hours of my day.
