Below is a funny song about coding which is sung to the tune of “Favorite Things”. It’s been around for ages, although I always thought the original version was a bit too short and unfocused. So, I’ve re-written it, because I’m a dork, and I’m posting it because I have nothing worthwhile to say today.
Pointers to pointers to printf()-like functions,
Unary minus and nested conjunctions,
Integers, booleans, characters, strings,
These are a few of my favorite things!
Encapsuled functions with routines embeded.
Parallel process to run multi-threaded.
Routines that lighten the processor load.
This is just some of my favorite code!
/* When the bug bites! When the core dumps!
when the code is bad.
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so mad. */
API reference and good indentation.
Pointers to strings that have null-termination.
Callbacks to functions of referencing strings.
These are a few of my favorite things.
malloc() and calloc() and database files.
Error-free coding that always compiles.
Arrays of structures and quick file sort.
These are my favorite things to import!
/* When the link fails! When the code bombs!
When it won't execute.
I simply compile my favorite things
and then I can go Re-boot! */
Artless in Alderaan
People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
Grand Theft Railroad
Grand Theft Auto is a lousy, cheating jerk of a game.
A Star is Born
Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.

A novel-sized analysis of the Mass Effect series that explains where it all went wrong. Spoiler: It was long before the ending.
