I'm Robert G. I'm a web developer/designer. I moved to Chicago in 2012, without knowing anyone here. I grew up in NYC. I used to work at Manhunt. I am Tumblr # 156. I am Black and Irish. I play lots of video games and drink lots of booze. I am a cool guy.

  1. A game I like, La Mulana, kickstarted a sequel, where one of the awards was to have your face turned into a statue. They just posted an updated about it, which included: “If you’d like to become a giant stone face, we suggest taking your photos with lighting coming more from the bottom up”, and other things like “Just keep in mind that if you send us weird faces, we’ll stick your face in weird places." Cute.  
But then it says “Regarding hairstyles, we just want you to know that styles like dreadlocks and afros will be hard for us to work with. Please just try to see things from our perspective. As long as you can see your face though, we’ll work around the hair and give you an interesting headpiece in place of your ‘do." Which is real fucking specific about what kind of hairstyle is hard for them. Not sure why dreadlocks would be harder than long hair.
So, anyway, long story short, now I want to send them more money and grow an afro, because I want an awesome afro statue in their Indiana Jones game and I think the world would be better off for it.

  2. There is GRASS. There is GRASS. ON MY LEG. FROM RUGBY PRACTICE. I was born in Manhattan. I don’t even know what grass is. When I first saw grass, I googled it. Where does it come from? Who planted it? Why haven’t we turned Central Park into a giant UNIQLO? 
But now there is FILTH on my LEG from a giant dirt patch and this is not okay. I am saran wrapping my legs before next practice.

    That's a little expensive to pee watch.

    I mean, I guess even if you buy cheap nosebleed tickets, you can still go down through the stadium and watch penises in the premium bathroom trough near the field. Where all the rich, successful penises are.

    winterlong went to a Cubs game

    I don’t think I can be friends with him anymore

    Eh, going to a Cubs game is essentially going to the biggest bar in the country.

    I have friends who go to Cubs games, but only to sightsee at the urinal trough. 

  5. My friend made a shirt you can buy.
  6. Headlines from the Future: Hillary Rodham Clinton loses Democratic Primary to Michelle Obama’s Arms

  7. I was tagged for a “six selfie challenge” by xo-enemy but I don’t even know what that is. I think he accidentally got me mixed up with one of the cool Tumblrs. 

  8. If I was holding a contest, and the winner got to meet Meryl Streep, I’d call it a “Streepstakes”

  9. I’m not sure if I’m joining a Team or a Fraternity

    Today, the guy who bleeds every day at Rugby practice told me “You just painted a target on your back, Rookie.” 

    If I never post again, you know why. 

  10. A brief list of reasons of why I have chosen not to pursue certain men on Scruff

    • "He referred to soccer as ‘football’. He’s just being intentionally confusing."
    • "Business major." 
    • "That guy looks racist"
    • "I already hit on that guy when I was drunk and it did NOT go well."
    • "He already sent me his dick pics, why would I talk to him again?"
    • "Doesn’t watch 30 Rock? Dealbreaker."
    • "That guy’s hair must have taken, like, a hour. At least."
    • "Bruins jersey? I don’t even know what a hockey ball is called."
    • "I’d have to transfer subways in the loop to get to his place. I’m really not into long distance."
