Few things grate me as much as the phrase, “Where’s that at?” It’s bad when you’re speaking, but it strikes me as fifteen times worse when reading those words, as you may do while on the Twitter. @totallycooltweeter may tweet: “OMG! If you’re near Big Park, come check out the hot air balloon show!” and […]

YCMI: Vol. IV
Internet link lists always make me happy if they have something different. I recognize that they’re the Triskets and Easy Cheese of blog posts, but they’re also a nice way to spread the word about cool or quirky little sites alongside the workhorses we’ve all heard of. And good morning! It’s day 9 for Persephone, […]
Do you watch Parenthood on NBC? I find myself looking forward to it more each week. Last night, as I was watching, I realized why. It’s like NBC put a camera in my house, got all their storylines, then split them out between four families because it would be too crazy for one family in […]
The Sun is Up, the Sky is Blue
It’s beautiful, and so are you, dear readers. Happy Wednesday morning! It’s National Bring A Teddy Bear to Work Day. No, I’m not kidding. We won’t judge you for bringing something fuzzy and full of stuffing to the office. We’ve worked in the corporate world, having a teddy bear to snuggle while going into the […]
We Try It: Psychonauts Game Review
Welcome to First Braining. Psychonauts is a platform game released on both console and PC a few years ago. I bought the game on GoG not long ago and finally had the chance to play it. Psychonauts is the story of Rasputin, aka Raz, who wants to join the Psychonauts, a group of special agents […]
We Try It: Civilization V
I am a long-time (as in since the early nineties) Civilization fan. I believe I’ve played every official version, every spinoff, several knockoffs and made great use of user created mods for over fifteen years. I love the Civilization franchise like Lucy loves Ethel and like the Golden Girls love cheesecake.
Here’s another round of crap we found elsewhere and thought you might like. Not just any crap, our internet amusement lists are chock full of knowledge-y goodness. And lists. And the periodic baby animal. Click on!
Tim Gunn, National Treasure
Welcome to our first recap of my personal guilty pleasure, Project Runway. Last night was a banner episode for our designers, filled with more drama than a room full of Bieber fans. Snippy designers, eye-rolling and a few dozen yards of hideous gray sweatshirt fleece makes for great TV.
Guilty Pleasures: My Ghost Story
In the near future, some of us at Persephone are going to be sharing our guilty pleasures with you. Why? Well, why not? Since this week has been a little heavy around here (bullying, cancer, evil corn refiners), I thought I’d jump in on this Friday and let you know one of my favorites. It’s […]
The internet is a fascinating place, filled with wonder, angry people and weird stuff. Join us as we dive into the most interesting place-a-ma-bobs we could find to help make your Thursday more delightful.
My first video game was Mario Brosâ„¢. The era of 8-bit graphics and my really young age are probably the reason why I did not care about playing a male protagonist. The game story is rather easy: Peach, the token girlfriend, was kidnapped by Bowser, and Mario the Plumber had to save her. He searched […]
You Complete Me Internet
Link round up! News, goodies, fun stuff and weirdness we found on the web to share with you.
Book Review: Feed by Mira Grant
Welcome to the first We Try It! post, part of what will eventually be a daily feature. We Try It! posts are reviews of just about anything, from books to movies to websites to products. For my first review, I chose the book Feed, by Mira Grant. Why? Because it’s about zombies and bloggers, and […]
