Ken Rosenburg’s Office

Ken Rosenburg, Tommy Vercetti's lawyer, works out of an office in the Hotel Harrison. This building is pretty dull and nondescript compared to a lot of Vice City's other locales. It doesn't have any neon lighting and it's painted, relatively, subdued colors (although they are still unique colors so that the place is easy for the player to remember and find). But then, Ken isn't exactly partial to 80's decor.

The Lesson of the Star

It could not be said exactly that she learned the lesson. Allen Marks’ fate had not dampened her own insatiable need to steal. Though she usually didn’t kill people unless she had to. Or they shot first. Or were a dick and therefore had it coming. Or they had a hard-to-find hat that went perfectly with her suit.

1850 TF2: By the Book

The Soldier was grandstanding. Again. This happened at almost every meal. They would all sit around the camp fire, eat their rations, and Soldier would tell them all about fighting battles in the Mexican-American War. They generally just let him speak, but today…

“Every conflict has its causalities,” Soldier said in conclusion of today’s tale of patriotic heroism. “I lost a boot that day. I kicked Santa Anna’s ass so hard it got stuck in there so he got to keep it.” He put on a look of great solemnity and gave his lost boot a moment of silence.

Spy, though certainly disciplined enough to have contained his disbelief like any other day, chose not to on this one. It escaped him in the form of a skeptic snort.

“Oh yeah?” Soldier said, glaring across the fire at him. “And what would a Chinaman know about fighting wars, Chopsticks?”

Spy sneered and said, “The Chinese wrote the book on war.”

Interior Decorating at the Super 8

This is a post I’ve thought about making many times before, but could never drag my ass along to get it done. I have finally been driven to this point, however.

Let me preface this by saying that I like my bossman a lot and that he is a pretty cool dude, so far as bossmen go. That said, however, the man has no taste whatsoever. When he bought the hotel a few years ago, he started renovating and decorating. The majority of this effort goes into the lobby.

Full Color: Budd Dwyer and His Impact on Journalistic Photography

You have R. Budd Dwyer to thank for color photos in the press being standard.

Budd Dwyer, warning onlookers against approaching him.

I will not hesitate to admit that I have an almost unhealthy interest in death in the media. But my heart rate won’t race for just anything. Anna Nicole Smith did nothing for me. September 11th didn’t even really do it. For me, it needs to be a personal matter, either to me or to the people directly involved.

 Simon got me this nanoblock boxer because his jowls made me go "Awwwwwwww!"  Had my buttermilk ranch dressing all prepared in advance, but then the CDC was like, "hey, there's an e. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce" so no salad this year. Had Simon pick me up a last minute substitution 'cause the whole point of the salad is that you can't just drink ranch dressing straight and have diginity at the same time. Y'all like my DIY chip 'n dip?
 Miss Rowgoo had to go the vet Thursday, but she is feeling better now, despite this grumpy look she is giving me.  Stretchy cat!
