Michael Thorton Free

Just a struggling and depressed writer of 28 and a major fan of Kafka, Kojima, and Kubrick, with a portion of my heart remaining forever lost to Japan...and eleven years and counting to live before I die of complications due to Asperger's syndrome.

    Check the “About” tab on top.

    Unless the other fans are willing to be gratuitous.

    Hold on a second…

    Last check, “zeds” in American English was a slang term for zombies in mobile-based (Java era, pre-smartphone) zombie shooters. Taking a nap in American English was “catching Z’s”.

    While in European English, “zed” was the pronunciation of the letter Z.

    When did THIS changeover take place? First I noticed was when the US seemed to adopt the Euro pronunciation of “aunt”, and I only found that out a few years ago.

    (Yes, I’m a geek. And a linguistician. And I’m writing a new dictionary.)

    Nice to finally see the face of George Crum, the man who made potato chips, in print for everyone to see, not just us nerds who collect trivia…

    A reverent tribute to a giant of laughter who neatly skirted and redirected the cruelty that inevitably accompanies most forms of humor.

    Thank you, Steve.

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein’s a good 2003-era budget shooter if you wanna take a peek. (Try for the home console version, though. The PC version starts at the castle itself, while the console one has a nice paranormal beginning set in a pyramid.)

    The new Wolfenstein reboots, set in an alternaverse where the Nazis won, get a little too gratuitous with the gunplay.

    Frau Oberst von Bulow was only in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. She had an all-female battalion of buxom leather-suited Nazi girls with Gerat Potsdam silenced Stens as her personal guard.

    Wolfenstein’s Helga von Bulow would be a great cameo to drop in right about now.

    (Head of the SS Paranormal Division in Return to Castle Wolfenstein, for you civilians and any gamers born after 2004. Good story, even if the Nazist alternaverse is what’s in vogue right now.)

    Seems kinda tame compared to all the great potato recipes they used to have…

    That’s actually a baking technique called Vapor Action. It needs very precise timing, and it only works with regular dough that has no extra ingredients like fruit or chocolate which can affect the temperature.

    Ideally, 600 degrees would be done in 60 seconds or less.

    Vapor Action is not recommended to home cooks unless they possess incredible reaction time and focus.

    Too bad I’m allergic to zucchini or I’d do this.

    (I remember my childhood battle with gluten allergy. This would have killed me by suffocation back then.)
