It’s a longstanding tradition for me to grouse about how much fun other people are having at RollerCon. What Happens In Vegas leaks out all over your stupid Facebook feed. Maybe a better person would be happy for their friends, but not me! I’m a regular, jealous person who’s greedy for fun. So. Not all […]

Per request, I’ve covered the cold truths about ice cream (hahahahaha) with these definitive ice cream power rankings. Eating ice cream every night for a couple of months has prepared me for just such an undertaking. I can, and will defend these positions if necessary.

Sooo…you guys heard about this fantasy roller derby? Sorry, you can’t join. It’s exclusive. Sorry to be a jerk, but we just needed to get that out of the way first. A couple of weeks ago, Mike Chexx (who you may know as an announcer) casually mentioned on Facebook that he was thinking about starting […]

Next year, maybe another continent? It’s about time. Both D2 tournaments are in the Great North up there. I’d be a little bummed if I’m a […]
