VIDEO: Sucking at DotA2 Episode 01: Disruptor

There are many ways to play DotA2. Not all of them are good. Some of them are outright preposterous. My style of play borders on the latter, which should make for some interesting viewing. So, have a look, and decide for yourselves. This time, I’m ‘forced’ to play Disruptor, a hero I hadn’t played for a while. Things seem to be going great, until the game actually starts. Curious? Watch the video below.

State of Affairs, 14-12-2013

  This is all to let you know why I haven’t posted in a while. I know, its been over a week for a normal post to go online. I’ve been real busy, and on top of that, I’ve been avoiding responsibilities, like this blog. I have a good reason for some days, but for other days, I haven’t.

There’s a first time for everything.

I’ve reached a new low in my re-entrance to civilian life. Saving up for some bullshit I don’t need, but hey; it’s free! For those not in the know: these stamps are on the back of the receipts you get at my local supermarket, de Hoogvliet. I noticed I had a ton of receipts just lying in my room and started counting them. I had enough to get one full card. I started cutting them out. I felt retarded. Not having any form of glue to my disposal, I stapled all...

Thinking Clearly #4: Effort Justification

I bought a book.”The Art of Thinking Clearly”, by Rolf Dobelli. It’s a good book. It’s filled with 99 chapters, each describing a certain psychological phenomenon that negatively affects us all. I will be randomly picking a chapter, explain how it works, and use an example from my own experience in every blog. Have you got a good example? Leave a comment! Chapter 60: Effort Justification “Mark single-handedly restored a rusty old Harley-Davidson. Every weekend and holiday went into getting it up and running. It was a struggle, but finally...

Things I Hate #4: Large Masses

In this recurring blog, I will point out a certain thing I hate from society, or just everyday life.Some of them might be common pet peeves, some might not. I will, however, always try to justify why I hate that particular thing. There are no real boundaries as to what it the topic is. The only one rule: I have to hate it. Don’t agree with me? Leave a comment saying why I’m wrong. Large Masses (of people) Saturday morning, around eight o’clock. I have just finished my night shift and...

No Mo’ -Vember 0

No Mo’ -Vember

Yes. I did a half-hearted attempt at Movember. Half-hearted you ask? Yes. I started a week beforehand. Well, not consciously, it started out as lazyness. Around the 4th of November, I thought to myself: “it’d be a shame to shave it off now, lets just see how far I can go”. Midway through, I had to trim it, because it started to look ridiculous. I did this another time, but on the third I decided to just shave it all off. Movember might’ve started as a man’s way to express...

Cooking with Felix: Hachee

Do you see the above picture? Do you think; “hmm, that looks good. But how do I make such a meal?” Have no fear, Felix is here. I will tell you how to make this, both in pictures and text. I like to cook, and I like to experiment in my cooking. Also, I don’t ever do measurements, so you won’t find any in this recipe either. Every now and then, when I’ve made something worthwhile, I will share it in a blog post. This dish is called Hachee. It’s a...
