And this is a terrible picture of me wearing the retro style GB 2012 shirt and a custom made hoodie my girlfriend got me for Christmas. At the time there were no GB hoodies. I like mine a lot though.

This is me riding the subway to NYC. There I went to a comedy club where a comedian noticed my t-shirt during his set.

"Dude, are you wearing a shirt that says "Giant Bomb"? What is that?"

"It's a video game site!"

"Dude, did you look in the mirror before you left the house? You look like a terrorist!"

Haha, good times.

@Dagbiker: I have yet to find any youtubers, people in school, or any other bloggers that are actually willing to do a calibration. Everyone is out for themselves. I know we are at a time where the American economy is in turmoil and there are only so many jobs out there, but it's really ridiculous.

@believer258: i was thinking about making some photoshop fliers to pass out. Just wondering who actually looks at that stuff. I know I never do.

So I've been working on a blog/site while in college and I'm just wondering how I should go about getting noticed. I have a youtube, tumblr, blogspot, wordpress, itunes podcast, facebook, and a website and it seems like I'm getting no traffic. Most video views on my youtube channel was for my review of the Nyko Intercooler.

On a related topic - How do you continue working on your website while still finding time for school?

Thanks in advanced for any advice!

between seeing the footer and them hinting at shorter podcasts. Man this whole thing is bumming me out again.

They've spoken about shorter podcasts many times, it never happened.

When did they say this? I know they say something along the lines of "God-damn this podcast was long" but when did the say it was going to be shortened? Or when did they "hint" at this since the transition to CBS?

So are the loyal Interns going with you? I really wanted to apply for an internship at WM next summer, guess that idea's shot.

Wow. If the screenshots are real, this game actually looks pretty good! Who knows if they will drastically overhaul the mechanics though...

I have extremely fond memories of my NES, Sega Genesis, and Playstation. It's tough to decide which is my "favorite" but I think I'd have to go with the one I spent the most time with which was the Playstation. Though NES had AMAZING titiles that I couldn't get enough of, there was something about my Playstation. The funniest part about my acquiring my Playstation was - My brother came to visit from MN one year and brought it as a gift. At the time I had an N64 and thought the Playstation was garbage. After months of it collecting dust, I subscribed to the Official Playstation Magazine and got a ton of those demo discs. I think Intelligent Cube and Tony Hawks Pro Skater were my gateway drugs. I couldn't get enough of the Playstation ever since, and I actually used it way more than my N64... well when i wasn't playing Ocarina of Time that is!
