Sunday Soapbox: A Life Without Riddles

Well folks, it’s past. The slowest week in Riddlethos history since “Fuck you, it’s Christmas Break Week”, which doesn’t really count. Riddles’ sabbatical officially comes to an end starting tomorrow, and while he might not be back in full force the first week, it has caused me to look back on this month and come to a very difficult realization.

This website needs Oliver Motok.

For all the joking around that I’m the one who delivers for, Riddles is the inspiration for the quality and quantity of the content I produce. If he were around, he would be making jabs at the slow pace I was releasing Quickie Impressions and so I would likely get around to them in better time. If he were around, he’d produce a thorough and entertaining edition of Hey! Look! Listen! and that would make me to not want to fall behind causing a better chance of Scatter Storming and Tingle! Tingle! Kooloo-Limpah!

Not to say I’ve been useless without him. I started a successful and hilarious new segment in “Spam Comment Roundup” (another one coming soon), produced the first podcast for this website in 5 months, and provided pretty consistent E3 coverage for just one guy, but I’d be lying if I said his absence hadn’t taken a toll on my productivity.

Riddles’ sabbatical was well deserved and I’m glad he took as much time as he needed, but Riddlethos welcomes him back. So please be kind to him as he returns.

…at least for one day.

As for me? I’ve got Dragon Quest IX in my hands so that I can already one-up Riddles next week.

    Jokes that you’re the one who delivers for Riddlethos are just kind of hollow without Oliver around …

    Murfreesbro jokes are also kind of hollow without Oliver around, though Biggs is ok for Nascar jokes.
