Hi. I'm Ryan Paul Peterson.
Yes, I go by all three.

Do you know how hard it is to find the correct "Ryan Peterson?"

I don’t think you do. If you did, you'd already have met me. See, you know how to "search" the Ryan Peterson, you just don’t know how to *hold* the Ryan Peterson. And that’s really the most important part, the holding. Anybody can just meet one.

In honor of Irene, who is about to hit New York and likely destroy some of my friends apartments, let’s all BEHOLD!

Who would have thought a 5 hour puzzle game would ever have this kind of longevity, or inspire this kind of creativity? This video is beautiful. Would totally pay to watch a full length (as long as it’s not in 3D!)

Once you see it, you can’t unsee it… Say hi!

Retro is still in, right? Screw the haters, 1080p is so 2009! Remember when all that mattered was gameplay and imagination?

I know it’s tempting, but this is why you do not moon strangers!

Woa and wowzer, this breakfast power house is served at the Screen Door in Portland, Oregon. Belgian Waffle topped with THREE fried chicken breasts, held together with a knife. Oh, and an orange slice crown. Took me 3 meals to finish!

Thank you, pop culture, for finally getting us to the point where this movie is not only made… but it looks effing irresistible. My frothing demand increases!

A Celebration of Rememberance

So as I sit alone in my room, with midnight behind and dawn ahead, I want to take a moment to reflect on how hollow this is for me. I shouldn’t be sitting here alone on July 27th. I should be out with a Guinness in hand (or a McSorely’s Dark, or a Pikvaki, or a BGD, etc) toasting and cheering with my brother Christopher, celebrating his 26th birthday. But I’m not. I can’t. While he was never one for dramatics - I was made of different stuff, and I can’t help it. He’s been gone for 9 months or so and I’ve more or less resigned myself to this fate - yet how does that really compare to 25 years of having a brother’s voice in your head? Not that that voice will ever truly be gone… it’s just diminished somewhat. And that sad reality is hard to shake (though he’d slap me if he heard me like this.)

 

"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as though I were beside you"

Chris’s life was not made for mourning but for celebrating, so if anyone out there happens to be working on their night moves, pour a little out, raise your glass, and whisper “Happy Birthday,” ‘cause he wouldn’t want it any other way.

Love ya kiddo, and happy birthday from your older brother who teased and taught, paid and played, and took far too much advantage of you (/smile), wherever you are, I hope it’s everything you could possibly want.

Cheers.

NEW LOST FOOTAGE!

A couple things I wrote a few years ago were published online about LOST… you could say I was ‘a bit of a fan’ /understatement. While my love of the show has not waned, I was forced to put it aside as all things must be when they end. But this is an unexpected gem! Kudos to ABC and whoever put this together, best footage since “New Man In Charge”!
