An Ode to Self-Awareness

21 Jan

So I’m Kind of A Real Blogger Now

24 Jan

Though I’m sure alexhilhorst.com has its own weird cultish fan base of Packer kids, Tisch kids, my girlfriend and people who google “Mass Effect 2″ or phrases like “Jacob LOST” or “MGMT godawful,” now you can find me on an actual, legitimate website. I’m now a contributor for GamesAbyss.com, and you can read my first [...]
