The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

EA Sports... It's At The Carnival

Over the weekend, I took my wife and daughter to the Topsfield Fair—a fun yet disgusting place, filled with delicious fair foods, animals, and people who smell worse than the animals.

I ate a deep fried Oreo cookie, but passed on the chocolate-covered bacon with sprinkles and walnuts. Before an hour was up, I was out $100 in cash and felt like I ate five pounds of concrete. My kid won an annoying plastic trumpet that makes my dog bark. She was happy. I was broke and nauseous happy. My dog, not so much.

But while I was there, my wife happened to notice that EA had a presence there. That ripoff EA bracelet snake oil crap was there, too, but that's another story for another day.

Now I know that EA really gets "in the game," but I wasn't aware that meant ridiculously expensive carnival games where you throw cracked whiffle balls into a clothes basket.

Instead of unlocking an achievement, you can win a giant stuffed Cartman from South Park. It cost $5 just to throw one goddamn ball, so... my cheap ass didn't actually play. But I did manage to snap this pic.
