It’s been about a year and some change since I last attempted to write anything on this site. Why so long, you might ask? Well, a lot of things have happened since then. I had a falling out with some acquaintances, my mother died, my aunt died, my brother-in-law’s father died. I basically got caught up in my personal life and lost all motivation for anything that didn’t involve me retreating inside of my own inept shell. Continue reading See you in hell.
I managed to get sick recently over Labor Day weekend. it came at a bad time since I was planning on buckling down and getting some things done. But I figured I could work my way through the blocked sinuses and fatigue. Quite frankly, I had a lot of shit to do and only 24 hours in a day, so yeah, I couldn’t afford to let a mere wimpy cold get in the way. It wasn’t something that could stop a fella from pumping out a blog post or a drawing or two, right? Continue reading Motivational Leaking
About 16 or so years ago (yes, I’m ancient), I actually started writing a novel. Or maybe you’re just supposed to call it a book. I feel bad calling any attempt I made a novel. At any rate, I wrote a few chapters and showed them to my college english professor at the time. She seemed to think I had some promise. Or maybe she was just blowing smoke up my ass. I’ve got literally no way of knowing. When I showed those same chapters to a friend, they were very critical of it. And although I had put so much effort into it, I kinda just… stopped. Continue reading Them’s writing words
I didn’t know what to post today. I still have to do a lot of work on my Chemist for FFXIV post, so no dice there. As far as procrastinating goes, EVO is wasting my time with MvC3, and I’m trying to resist resubbing my Netflix account, so I more or less have nothing to do. So let’s talk Super Sentai. What’s that? You don’t know what Super Sentai is? Ever heard of Power Rangers? Screw you. Let’s get down to basics about it shall we? Continue reading Let’s talk Super Sentai
The last Civilization V game I played was about a week ago. For those that don’t know, Civilization V (Civ 5) is a strategy game where you build up cities and armies and basically try to be the best country among a small group of similarly competing countries. Sounds boring to you? Who cares, it’s the greatest game ever.
My last Civ 5 game was against the AI, Deity difficulty, huge map size. After watching Marbozir do it for so long, I thought, why not? It was my first time playing deity and I kind of screwed myself over by going for the huge map setting. That’s because, if you’re playing against the computer on deity level, they have the resources to churn out cities and sprawl across the map like a swarm of locusts. Continue reading Space and future and stuff
So let’s try this. New update on this blog, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Why those days? Because Tuesday and Thursday start with a T, and Sunday starts with an S. Or maybe they were just arbitrarily chosen for no reason other than the ability for my mind to pick random things without even thinking about it. It’s a super power I’m quite proud of.
The reason why I’m trying this is because I want content for this site but I’m lazy. It’s a disease of some sort. A malady. I’ve contacted the CDC, Torchwood, and all the great scientific minds of the modern age and they don’t seem to have a clue about it. It’s also the number one thing that has been holding me back since I left college. I sleep a lot. I procrastinate. And then I complain about not doing anything. Ugh, I’m more annoyed with myself than anything else. Continue reading Let’s try something different
So, a while back I suddenly got the itch to start reading American comics again. Easier said than done. The difference between American comics and Japanese manga (of which I literally flood my brain with every waking hour) is that Japanese manga is insanely easy for me to get. I won’t go into the details, but there’s lots of shit to read and it’s easy to get to.
Still, I never stopped wishing I could just get caught up with all the Xmans and BatFreaks. I really used to be into this shit when I was in high school. Why’s it so tough to get into it again? Especially since I’m actively trying my best not to spoil myself so I can somehow get enough of the old books to refresh my knowledge and then catch up to how things are today. The effort I’m going through is like punching myself in the head and thanking myself for it. Continue reading Marvel announces Death of Wolverine, but for Storm, it was just a Tuesday
Ninja turtles used to be cool. They still are. Deep somewhere inside my heart. But I honestly don’t think they’ve been “cool” for a long time. Why am I discussing the cool factor of ninja turtles? Because I found a pretty awesome video that’s why. Since I’m more or less very much into martial arts, action-related things, any type of new video with a nice fight scene catches my eye. Imagine my joy when the guys at Thousand Pounds finally released something new today. And yeah it’s ninja-turtle-related. Kinda. Actually, it’s a “fun, stylistic (… and human) take on what a sparring session could look like between the four green ninjas that started it all.” Okay okay, I’ll stop being a tease. Check out the video below. Continue reading Old Man Noses
