Those of you that haven’t been at The-Kamiza lately may not have noticed that I have jumped ship. That is to say that my content will be posted over there from now on. I’ll still keep this address up because of my Infinity Gauntlet page and my Haves and Wants pages.
Thanks to those of you who have followed me through the months. As of this posting I’ve dutifully put up just over thirty articles in just over thirty weeks (7 months). In all I had over 6,000 hits, which comes out to over 200 views per article. That’s still small time, but it was reason enough for me to keep writing. I hope those of you checking in on me will continue to do so over at Steve’s site.
Speaking of which, I already put up my first article there entitled “Bee-Dazzled“. Ridiculous, I know, but check it out anyway.

A business lives or dies based on its location. Growing up I had always wished that Manana, the closest town to where I live, had a McDonalds. Given that the town is off the beaten path with only a population of around ten, my dreams never came to fruition. I wasn’t bitter though because I understood economics, at least at a base level.

…Well have a nap then fire z missiles!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about you have to go to www.iamletired.com It’s an old site, but still a classic. It sort of reflects my week… everything went to poop. I got some huge sinus infection from mold in the vents at our school (from one of the science teacher’s lessons) and it all but incapacitated me. I was still able to work, but when I went home I hit my bed like a sack of (insert generic heavy blunt object)’s. Therefore, you got nothing out of me. I am le sorry.
It also brings me to something I heard on The Ring Has Chosen (episode 59 I believe), where the Lost Hemisphere guys were lamenting the end of the Vs. blog. They had some good points (there’s a reason they’re the best blog), but their biggest and best idea was consolidation. There are many of us that only put up content weekly (less than that when mold strikes). If were to combine a couple blogs here and there we would double the content and relieve deadline stress off each other. Sounded like fabulous advice to me, so I’m throwing myself to the masses. If anyone out there wants to combine blogs I would be a big proponent. I’ve been begging for guest writers from day one, but this is a step farther in a very right direction. If you’re interested, reply to this thread or drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Don’t worry though, I’ll still try to bring weekly content even if I have to remain a solo act. I am already putting the finishing touches on this Wednesday’s article so you better get your tickets early 😉
See you then!
PS: To the Lost Hemisphere guys… Summer of Love rocks. You make me waste my valuable prep hours reading your articles because I simply can’t wait until I get home. You definitely deserve another Blog of the Month title!

As I proceeded to clean newly spilled chocolate milk off of my rare folders, I praised God for the inventor of clear protective sleeves. I also though, “Why do I have so many rares that I don’t use?” Most decks use a few rares, and some decks do use more than others, but Vs. has yet to make it to the state of Yu-Gi-Oh where its players shell out a fortune for the most competitive decks. There are currently a ton of cheap competitive decks in every format of Vs. Checkmate builds had very few essential rares and dominated the meta forever (whatever happened to them anyway?).
Anyway, screw cheap competitive decks. I want to use my rares. I want to find the most competitive deck that ONLY uses rares. Maybe this has already been done, but I’ve not seen it yet so I figured I’d give it a shot. For the sake of my valuable time, I decided to limit myself to Silver Age. Continue reading
