For those unfamiliar with MSPaintAdventures, you're really doing yourself an injustice by not acquainting yourself with it. It's quite possibly the most brilliant web comic I've ever read that really takes advantage of the medium. Unlike most webcomics you find out there it's not about "my whacky, youthful, cynical life", or reviews on games, or more so just still images. Andrew Hussie takes it to the next level. He adds animation to a comic where I have always wanted to do and hoped to see sprout where it has so obviously been waiting to be sown.

Thanks to this amazing comic Max and I did a homage to some of his characters for Halloween, when it was disgraceful that no one knew who we were. For those that do not know who we are in these pictures, it's time for a change. DO yourself a favor and go to

How I broke the water temple

I am not the stuff of walkthroughs, but I can provide a little cheat I discovered in order to power through Ocarina of Time Master Quest. Now I know there probably aren't many out there at this point playing the game, but just in case I felt it should be posted.

So this is how you beat the water temple without ever having to change the water levels: Once you enter the water temple equip your lead boots and sink to the very bottom of the temple. There should be two available doorways to go through. Head for the one that doesn't have the massive pit in front of it, go a little to the right and there it shall be. Once you enter Princess Ruto is there to pout about her everlasting princess love and other forced proposal things and then tell you to follow her to change the water levels. As you drift upward there are three levels. Before you reach the surface you should see a level that has a big hole in the wall. Swim toward the ledge and again equip those lead boots (as if you needed reminding). There will be a stone slate directly in front of you on the far wall. Get out your hookshot and hit the slab. A chest will appear. Now as you know, you can't open these chests underwater, at least it didn't let me when I took the normal approach. Instead of deserting my post I took the hookshot out and latched on to the chest, mashing A the instant I got close enough to it. This forces the chest to open and when successful you get an amusing distorted chest open fanfare song. You now have the longshot! You will be able to access all the other necessary rooms in order to beat the dungeon, however if you're going for 100% completion then you will miss some gold skulltulas. Otherwise, thank you lord I don't have to put up with the notorious pain that is the water temple.

So as many of you most likely have heard by now the greater DC/ Maryland area has been slammed with snow this February. In our area we've gotten about an accumulative of 72 inches of snow. I know there are plenty of you saying "sure we get that every winter, no big deal you sissies", but here in Maryland it is most certainly nothing to sneeze at. I was trapped indoors for the majority of the week, but once the roads were cleared and I could get back to work I just felt I needed to take advantage of the abundance of white stuff. With some encouragement from some friends on facebook saying I should "Do iiiitttttt!" with no clue to what it was, other than something possibly involving a flame thrower, I started out on a mission to make some sort of snow man. The only suggestion was a 100 foot snowman and that wasn't happening, so I thought of the next best thing; which brings us to the point. I made a Snowlax. More specifically a Snorlax made solely out of snow. I don't think that it's quite to scale, but it's bigger than me and that's good enough.
