I picked up the book Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture by David Kushner this week while in Columbus. This is a great book - right up there with The Soul of a New Machine and Show- stopper!. Having lived through this era (Wolfenstein 3D to Doom to Quake), it is especially nostalgic to recount the impact Carmack and Romero had on our culture. The first time I ever played Doom deathmatch was actually on an SGI box while working at Wright Labratory for the USAF doing cockpit research.
We stayed in a classic, giant RV park to be with friends last weekend. Results were mixed.
Julie and I spent a magical weekend in NYC last weekend with my sister. We saw three shows in three nights; here are my mini reviews.
We are hanging out near Crystal River FL at Crystal Isles RV park, joining some old friends for fun and adventure.
Spending a long birthday weekend in NYC celebrating a big milestone for my sister.
