Dart Against Humanity Ep. 100: Game Oeuvreture
The word "oeuvre" refers to the collected works of an artist, author or a painter. An "overture" is either an orchestral piece at the beginning of an opera, suite, play, oratorio, or another extended composition or it can be an introduction to something more substantial. Smash them both together and you have an "oeuvreture". I run down the history of Dart Against Humanity, tell you what I've learned and what the future holds for me. Thank you for listening to Dart Against Humanity for the past 30 months and 5 seasons. I appreciate you all.

Dart Against Humanity Ep. 98: Hack & Slash & Burn
I tell the full story of how my verified Twitter account with over 20K followers got hacked and while I do want it back, why I'm simultaneously not in a rush to get it back. Report it as hacked so it can't infect other accounts and Twitter finally secures it, but I'm enjoying not arguing with people all day long in the interim. Also, happy 15th anniversary to my last day working a real job at CVS.

Dart Against Humanity Ep. 96: Blockstun
On today's episode of Dart Against Humanity I had to figure out what to make the episode about since I've been so busy and I wrote a piece during this podcast since I'm on a deadline. I decided to call the episode Blockstun after an FGC term referring to when a video game character is still stuck in their blocking animation after stopping an attack. When you hear the episode, it'll make sense...
