Your Nose Just Told Me Cowabunga

Among the things that beloved editor Michael McWhertor left behind was his curation of the nightly off-topic open thread. And so the responsibility to keep the OT up falls to me, Kotaku's sole west coast editor on Mondays and Tuesdays.


So, bear with me as I track down random things I see in the news in a sad attempt to live up McWhertor's precedent. Though of course, it's an open thread, so talk about whatever you'd like!

Did Kirk Hamilton ever have an introduction article, like Evan Narcisse? I seem to remember Totilo having a similar one when he joined up a few years ago as well, and it gave me a good sense of his personality. I find that I still have no idea who Kirk is or where he came from.

I miss when Kotaku was a site that could actually be navigated effectively to find stuff like editor bios. Does the editor bio page even exist anymore?
