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 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, 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
Really cool video from the guys over at Corridor Digital. Normally I could care less about Mario, and this is blatant Mario propaganda, but it’s also pretty freaking entertaining. Benjamin Dolly aka Games Dean from Video Game High School does a pretty sinister Mario in this one.
The whole thing kinda reminds me of Breaking Bad. Hah. Oh, just watch watch the video for crying out loud.
Okay so I remember Star Trek. I grew up watching it particularly in the TNG era. Jean-Luc Picard and his Epic Facepalm skills. Worf getting thrown over consoles in like, almost every episode. Riker only becoming cool once he got his beard. Good ol’ useless Counselor Troi. That Data. You know. The good shit.
So what the fuck is this?
Apparently this is a “professionally produced television pilot” for a new Star Trek series. Hate to say it, but this doesn’t exactly excite me. A lot of things about the scenes in this trailer are off. Maybe it’s a lack of editing or post production, but it looks fairly amateur and mostly awkward. Tim Russ, the guy who played Tuvac (first black Vulcan, yay?) in Voyager, is actually directing this, and they managed to get Chekov from the Original Series to appear in it. That’s something, I guess? Continue reading Star Trek: Renegades or ‘How I learned to to give up on a decent Star Trek tv show’
I remember this place. I seem to have set it up long ago as a means to contain the entirety of my creative outlets. I posted a few entries and then promptly forgot about it. And that’s more or less the essence of what makes up me. Deciding to do things and then forgetting about them.
It’s not as if I don’t try. I guess a lot of it comes from the fact that I have so much on my plate at any given time. I decide to pick and choose like any good boy should, but like the dignity of Miley Cyrus’s future children, some things just got left by the wayside in the process. Of course, there is plenty of indication that I will forget about this blog some time tomorrow, but hey, I’ll make a go of it today. Continue reading A lot to worry about
