Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

Grandma on ExtraLife Radio!

The one and only Scott Johnson of MyExtraLife interviewed Grandma and I for a very special fireside podcast. So grab a bowl of chestnuts and a warm cup of cider and gather around the computer with your favorite person; let your cold autumn days be gently heated by my Grandma's asskicking abilities.

Here's the show.

Thank you, Scott.

In an extra bit of old timey goodness, you all should know this was Grandma's first experience with Skype, and during the interview her hearing aid wasn't working well with the computer speakers so she held one up to the side of her head with her other hand on the microphone base, like so many World War II signal operators relaying the position of The Indianapolis, or Timmy's mom from Lassie calling the operator to get a hold of the Sheriff, for someone was in that god damn well and they aren't getting out any quicker.

It was quite a sight to see.


Seems like the servers are down at the moment that hold the .mp3 file of the interview, so we'll post when it comes back on.

All good! Servers back up.

    Yeah, I actually Diablo III Goldpreferred the actual Lso are film likewise. The second one has been trash, even so the initially seemed to be pretty reliable. In terms of Tragedy, I'm not far too concerned about the story -- the main Billig Diablo 3 Goldone is far too tough for a massive business to work with the idea.
