What do you do when nothing goes your way? For example, let’s say you spent 8 years on a PhD thesis that ultimately failed, then I guess you would be massively disappointed. The psychological effects of this un-achievement on you would be extremely interesting: What have I done with my life? Who is to blame? […]Read more "The 4 Quests of a Directionless Loser!"
I’m currently in the process of completing 4 unique quests as part of a personal spiral into oblivion following my complete collapse of faith in the universe due to failing my PhD after 8 years of depressingly difficult toil and struggle. These epic quests include physically training to complete a montage video of physically training, […]Read more "4 Quests of a Directionless Loser! – My 30 Favourite Albums of All Time"
Have you ever done something that was so frustratingly difficult that you couldn’t remember why you’d even tried in the first place? A task so massively daunting that it doesn’t even seem humanly possible. Maybe it could be as simple as beating a friend 1-on-1 in basketball, or maybe it’s just trying to dunk once on […]Read more "4 Quests of a Directionless Loser! – Highest Score Ever on Angry Birds Star Wars"
Lots of losers exercise for the right reasons: health, energy, looking good, feeling good, making friends… but only Dr. Loser exercises for the wrong reasons! Sure, I’m out of shape, look like a mess, feel like shit and have no social life whatsoever, but I’m not going to use exercise to fix those problems, oh […]Read more "4 Quests of a Directionless Loser – Exercising for ALL the Wrong Reasons"
Following the failure of my PhD, I vowed to watch so much TV that I just vomit blood from my eyes. However, the problem I’ve had recently while pursuing this quest is that I don’t want to become another one of these “binge-watching” douche-bags. As far as I’m concerned, people who binge-watch are such monumentally annoying […]Read more "4 Quests of a Directionless Loser – Binge-Watching is for Posers"
Using a very complex new kind of artistic math, I have recently discovered the best way to find rank the greatest albums of all time. After listening to hundreds of my personal favourites and experimenting with these new equations, I stumbled on the basic three patterns found among all musical albums. I have labelled these as […]Read more "How to Determine the Best Album Ever"
If you’ve ever played Angry Birds then you’ll understand why I’ve cracked two windows in the past few years after tossing my iPad like a frustration frisbee. The physics engine behind the game sure seems to digitally interpret gravity perfectly, so much so that it even translates the unexplained way some things will just fall randomly […]Read more "Unorthodox (yet effective) Ways to Obtain Crazy High Scores on Angry Birds"
Riding my bike around Seoul has been fun~ish. Some good exercise I suppose, but definitely a struggle for a weakling like me to get much further than a few blocks without needing to chug some Powerade and take a 20 minute break. Still, there is no doubt that this kind of pathetic attempt at a normal […]Read more "Exercising – Street Style!"
All I want to do is just watch TV. Is that so wrong? I even wanna watch so much TV that the blood vessels in my eyes burst from the strain. Why is that crazy? If you tried to tell me I was wasting my time then I would have thought YOU were the crazy […]Read more "Is the TV Talking to Me?"
I have spent the past few months attempting a number of different projects following my complete lack of faith in the world after spending years on a PhD thesis that turned out to be a total waste of time. These projects have included the super innovative Live Novel-ing concept of writing every stage of a novel online for anyone to […]Read more "God Hates Us All"
The following is a completely unadulterated transcript of the insane rambling I wrote down in my note pad as I had a mental breakdown in a coffee shop the other day while trying to simply just get 3 stars on a level of Angry Birds Star Wars: Good lord I fucking can’t take it anymore, […]Read more "Angry Birds Can Go to Hell"
I had this grand plan – watch all of the TV that I wish I could have watched while I was toiling away on a PhD for 8 years (which in the end I failed anyways). I would have been infinitely more satisfied with life had I just said fuck that PhD and watched stupid TV […]Read more "Watching TV is Kind Of a Stupid Waste of Time"
As I stated months ago here at the Dr. Loser blog, my physical condition was extremely neglected over the past few years while studying for the PhD that I eventually failed. I was and am a mess, and getting visibly older everyday. Now I know why they tell you to exercise regularly because it’s so […]Read more "Exercise? More like Loser-cise! "
Well… I was all prepared to come here today and announce the end of the Dr. Loser blog experiment. I’d had enough. Sure, it was fun at first but keeping up with it was grinding me down. Lately I was just so disappointed by the progress of those 4 Quests of a Directionless Loser that I […]Read more "No way… I can’t believe it… You’ve got to be kidding me… THIS is what life is all about?

In my recent quest to rank my definitive favourite albums of all time, I might have gone a bit nuts! I concocted many schemes to try and evaluate how albums can be considered great, including a very embarrassingly complicated Dr. Loser metrics that in the end got me no closer to the truth than just […]Read more "My Top 10 Favourite Summer Albums of All Time"
What happens when we die? You think about that, right? I’m sure you have many different theories, everything from a white-robed heaven to surfing waves of energy like a cosmic guppy to infinite nothingness. Well, no offence to whatever your belief is, but I think it’s safe to say that the only thing we know […]Read more "Scoring Points Isn’t the Most Important Thing in Life – My Journey to the Final Level on Angry Birds Star Wars"
I was on a quest this year to rank my favourite 30 albums ever, but boy did that go wrong! Not only did I end up declaring ‘God Hates Us All’ by Slayer as mathematically the greatest album ever recorded (don’t get me wrong, it’s a great album just not THAT great) but then suddenly […]Read more "My Top 10 Favourite Winter Albums of All Time"
There was a point a few months ago where I swore that I’d watch so much TV in in one sitting that my eyes would bleed. There is no doubt in my mind that this is possible, as I’m sure most binge-watchers can testify that when you sit in front of a screen for days just […]Read more "The Ecstasy of Me – Breaking Down My Personal Film Festival"
Listening to music is great! Everyone loves a good song, like “Thong Song”, “Baby Got Back”, or “Rump Shaker”, but I think we can all admit that a full ALBUM is where musicians truly flex their ‘ass muscles’, as they say. And therefore we run into a problem with today’s list of some of my […]Read more "My Top 10 Favourite Un-Albums of All Time"
