Summary:Hi, my name is Denis Farr. I originally started this blog over at Blogger in July 2008. I tend to write a lot about videogames, and have made various rounds of the web. Was formerly a staff writer for both GayGamer and The Border House, but am currently freelance. This blog serves to explicate my thoughts on any number of issues, not solely focused on videogames anymore (though they still make up the majority).
If you have any direct questions, please feel free to e-mail me at vorpalbunnyranch AT gmail DOT com, or find me on Twitter @aeazel.

This weekend brought to my attention a fact that I had not fully pondered, but one which I’d argued in the past: gaming is a community activity. It started Saturday. After a four hour rally against the hate legislation that … Continue reading
In the same trip to London where I saw a slew of great and mediocre (though not absolutely horrible) theater with my theatrical peers, I had the opportunity to visit the Tate Modern. There are two rules I try to … Continue reading
I’ve been hearing a lot about Mad Men, and as a person who doesn’t watch television, I’m finding it surprising that I’m so intrigued. Most of the talking I’ve read or heard about this title concerns feminism and how it … Continue reading

Imagination, story, writing, narrating: these are all words that describe my earliest loves. My aspirations as a child were three-fold. I wanted to be a father, contortionist, and writer. I’ve abandoned any progress on the first two, but the last … Continue reading
