Welcome to the brain child of Nicolas Hoffmann. This website is the fourth or fifth iteration of the Dudeletter. From its days as a poorly Xeroxed underground newspaper, to blog, to Facebook group, to failed dream, back to block, from original content to aggregate, it has been an odd consuming factor in my life. So enjoy, if you always wanted to be the guy with weird stories to start conversations, here you go.
Nick Hoffmann, the editor, alcoholic and all around poker and shaker of this web project. I am the Historian at a school, the writer of a lot of dead-end projects, and nerd. Luckily, my nerding is mostly cool and productive, like movies, sports, TV, beer and music. All of which, I think I am good enough to share. So be ready for my active nerding and welcome to my brainchild.

Scott Miller has worked the salt mines of eastern Tunisia for forty-two years. On the brink of retirement, Scott was granted opportunity to abandon his salting skills and pursue a career of writing reviews of video games, which, until last month, Scott had not known even existed. His ability to master these “video games” so quickly has given The Dudeletter a unique point of view on the multi-billion dollar industry. Scott likes saltwater taffy, saltine crackers, salt shakers in the shape of little fat Dutch people, and the R2 button.
