more or less finished in a couple o' days. found such to be such compelling tho too of note is the oddest sensation of inspiration to read this alone prolly helped yet part way thru day one i did succumb to severe gut rot in light of too much tea not a euphemism for anything get off my back jack a lovely little tale concerning the push for mainstream recognition of subcultured professional competitive gaming ala us of a coulduh very quite easily done sans the first hundo or so pages all author like oh wow this is crazy look at this how crazy it is man this is crazy woweeeee man what a crazy crazy trip all kinda like obviously pushing the outcast angle le sigh and some early script tackles game jargon and such like so ok for lay but for gamers is ok to gloss such as i compelling enough portrayal of characters involved lovely maneuverings basically hella ex-frat loser outta his element spendin' all the family coin on stupid-a$$ stuff o really yuppies do that ex frat boys are dipshits who would have thought yet these those were the labors that bore the fruit of a thing i have no idea about existing by way of lack of television which is odd seeings the events outlined are pretty freaking recent ala 05 to 06/07 ish maybe some back further not to mentioned looked it up yeah clan pms not at all hot like not even close theyve got one or two thumbnail hot chicks but yeah not at all as portrayed in the book although the sheer fact they blow at games and only do events to get some sponsor money and be sacrificial lambs for the sake of boosted interest by way of sex appeal fills my gut w/ eerie hilarity at their slap in the face of furthering women's image past pure sex obj way 2 go lolz
