Tropico 5 – Let’s Play

Tropico 5 - Let's Play
In addition to the SimCity “Let’s Plays” and the Space Quest 1 walkthrough I mentioned last week, I also have a Tropico 5 “Let’s Play.” I am still adding to it though. I have enjoyed working on this project and hope to do a lot more in the future, as well as expand to other ...

How to Own SEO

How to Own SEO
As I previously mentioned, I went to the American Marketing Association’s Nonprofit Marketing Conference at the end of July in Arlington, Va. At the conference I presented on search engine optimization to a packed house. Below is a video I put together from the audio and slides. Hope you enjoy and can find some usefulness ...

Quick Update on Star Trek Watching

Quick Update on Star Trek Watching
Wanted to provide a quick update on where I am in my quest to watch “Star Trek” from beginning to end. A few weeks ago I finally finished “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Truly a wonderful series with a lot of great characters. I especially liked how many of the non-Federation characters were recurring, like ...

Space Quest 1 – Walkthrough

Space Quest 1 - Walkthrough
I spent some time this past weekend replaying Space Quest 1 (VGA) to create a “Let’s Play” / walkthrough of the game. I plan to do many more classic video games in a similar way. Join me as I walk through the VGA version of Space Quest 1 from start to finish.

Let’s Play – SimCity 5 – Cities of Tomorrow – Omega City

Let's Play - SimCity 5 - Cities of Tomorrow - Omega City
My latest project, which has been occupying most of my free time recently, is “Let’s Plays.” If you’re unfamiliar with the term, Let’s Play refers to a type of video that a game produces, in which users watch the gamer go through a game with commentary. Usually the videos include tips and tricks as well ...

The Colonel’s Bequest #TBT

The Colonel's Bequest #TBT
As I mentioned in last week’s blog post, my next classic video game was “The Colonel’s Bequest.” I cannot express how much I loved this game. Actually, it wasn’t so much the game itself, but rather the story. Released a few years after “Clue,” which I love, “The Colonel’s Bequest” follows Laura Bow who is ...

Camelot vs New Orleans #TBT

Camelot vs New Orleans #TBT
No, I’m not sharing old photos of me in New Orleans or Camelot (although I wish I had some of me in Camelot). I am talking about classic video games: “Conquests of Camelot” and Gabriel Knight. As I mentioned in my last classic game review, I thought I would play Conquests of Camelot next and eventually ...

Making Gluten-Free Tortillas

Making Gluten-Free Tortillas
One of the challenges with Blue Apron has been that some weeks there are recipes I cannot have due to their ingredients. Sometimes the recipes require some substitutions to make them vegan or gluten-free. And sometimes those recipes require so many substitutions that it just doesn’t make fiscal sense to get a delivery that week. ...

The Journey Continues with Deep Space Nine

The Journey Continues with Deep Space Nine
I finally made it to “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine“! For those of you unaware, I have been watching the entire Star Trek series from The Original Series to Enterprise, including the movies. This initiative is really spurred by the latest reboot of Star Trek as I wanted to understand how the reboot has changed ...

Blue Apron: A New Approach to Dinner

Blue Apron: A New Approach to Dinner
A couple friends of mine turned me on to a new service they had discovered, Blue Apron. Essentially, the idea is that Blue Apron will ship you the ingredients to make three meals per week. No need to buy a full jar of spice, they ship you just enough for that recipe along with detailed ...
