Journal of the Emerald Specter 59: Content is King

I’m not entirely sure what kind of banners I should use for this particular article. This is going to be another attempt at a full length article here, but I’ll be touching on different types of content (podcasts, articles, YouTube, storytelling, etc)… so, why don’t I do what I think I need to and just […]

Emerald Specter 45: The Roundup

It’s been a while since I’ve written a column. The time seems to be right, as there are several things that are going to be happening that I’d like to let everyone know about just before things start happening. Rather than preamble about vagaries, why don’t we just get to the meat of this column? […]

Look at the Address

Hey there Specter fans… are you still using LimeFlavored.com as the URL for this site? Are you aware this is now EmeraldSpecter.com? No? I write this knowing that some people are still using the old address. Maybe that’s out of habit. Maybe that’s an old link you’re following from someone else’s site. Hell, maybe you […]

A Review of Assassin’s Creed III (The Movie)

This is the review of the third (numbered) installment of the YouTube movie series for Assassin’s Creed. My favorite line comes from the mentor to the assassin in this one: “I’m not even going to try to pronounce (his name).”  The main character’s actual name is Ratonhnhaké:ton, though he is also called Connor… which is […]

These Times They Are A Changing

Did you notice the change in the background?  If you haven’t, you’re probably too new here to have caught that… for those that did, I hope that something in your mind said “hey, what’s with the different thing?”  That’s what I would like to mention. When I bought Lime Flavored.com way back in 2000, I […]

Kristen Stewart is Famous… You Are Not

To everyone who says that Keanu Reeves is a cardboard cutout of an actor.  To everyone who says Kristen Stewart’s facial expressions range at just one.  To everyone who says that any famous person, especially one who gets a lot of work, is two dimensional… just remember one thing: they are famous and you are […]

iOS vs. Android

I don’t like Android.  My dislike of the OS is based on having actually used a version, multiple versions actually, and I dislike the experience.  The phone that actually drove me to iPhone was the phone running Android 2.something… and the phone was a Samsung, which was a double suck. This isn’t about how much […]

Ingress for iOS has Arrived

It’s about damn time, too. The game that I’ve been playing on a crappy Android tablet, tethered to my wife’s HotSpot, is finally out for iOS so that I can Ingress wherever, and whenever, I choose.  Starting this morning, I got to stretch my playing legs to squeeze in some early morning play by walking […]

So, So Tired of Haters for the Sake of Hating

Listen up, tools: I’m tired of hating for the sake of hating.  If you do this, you’re a loser.  End of story. Let’s look at the first thing I’m sick of hearing about being “terrible”: the Star Wars prequels.  You claim to be a big Star Wars fan but you hate half of the movies […]

It’s Happening… But When?

Like the title says, it’s happening… but when?  That is the signifier that it is closer than ever to the time when I actually leave one state for a permanent move to another.  I am moving, I just don’t have a set date yet. Yes, I am actually moving out of North Dakota. Work has […]
