Mrs. Goldblum Goo

I thought it was funny. :-) I don't think Chris is seriously asking, but if anybody is curious: That guess was not right because, per the Advanced Rules, descriptive phrases as disallowed, even if it's obviously the right person because only one person on Earth matches the description. Go »

Steve Can Now Legally Vote on Funeratic

Thanks. Still learning and making plenty of mistakes... Here's to another 18 years of indecipherable goos, championing Rock Block tournaments, and bewildering Oscar predictions. Go »

This is a Disgrace to America

Metallica recorded some classic metal albums in the 1980s, coasted into radio-friendly pop-rock in the 1990s, and were utterly adrift in the early 2000s before recovering and writing some kinda great (underappreciated IMHO) albums since then. Go »


Thank, Samir. Now I won't sleep tonight. Go »

I'm pleased to introduce the newest game on, Rock Block. It's part strategy game, part collecting game, part business game, and part rock-n-roll fantasy league. Go »

Interesting Videos.....Or Whatever

Thought I would start a thread to post interesting videos in. Here's a pretty neat video. This girl is nuts for doing this though. Go »

Election Day

Let's begin. Go »


It's been three weeks since Rock Block launched, and the early rush of mass participation has given way to a few regulars playing constantly. Go »
