All posts by scott topic

apparently i took the red pill

i’ve got my blog all hooked up to a zillion different feeds now…, twitterfeed.. and it’s actually been a challenge to wrap my head around it. if i want to post to my livejournal, i can actually post to my blog and have the feeds take care of it. or i can post directly. or i can go to and let them post. oh so many options. actually it’s just a tad confusing, but i think i’ve got it all worked out.

this is basically me rambling in order to have something to test it out on.

A Trip to the Hospital

Yes I was at the hospital today. No it wasn’t any emergency, just running a test for a problem I had a few months ago. It hadn’t reoccurred, and the test came back clear. But wow this test was an ordeal. Suffice to say, I now hate jello.

I played a bunch of Left4Dead over the past weekend and I must say, this is a must buy game if you’re into cheesy Zombie movies. It’s like they took the psychotic, fast running zombies of 28 Days Later and put them in the environments of a Romero movie. You have to work as a team (which is a challenge when you don’t have 4 humans playing, and have to use computer teammates) as you face insane numbers of zombies. Way fun.

I took off tomorrow and am not sure exactly what I’ll be doing. something relaxing. and jello free.

new blog…

i’ve got a ton of blogs and the like.  so i figured i’d finally combine all the various crap into a more unified site.  so voila.  i’ve used the name scott topic online for several years, ever since my friend Natalie started calling me that on the work schedule when i first worked at hot topic.

so about me..  as of right now i’m 27, living outside of State College where I work at Penn State doing IT Support.  i’m hoping to move this year, at least into State College.

i am into a lot of music, which fluctuates between emo, indie and techno usually.  but i listen to a lot of different music.  you might see me listening to pop or country or classical music on NPR just as often as you’ll find me listening to Thursday and the Get Up Kids.

i’m a gamer, and if i don’t have anything better to do you’ll probably find me on xbox live or on wow.  it’s a good time killer/life killer but it drives me nuts sometimes.

apart from that stuff though i’m mostly just your average geeky guy.  i suppose tech is my art.  hopefully i can showcase some of that stuff here.  for now i’m gonna work on tidying up this blog theme a bit.
