Oh, the iron grip of terror!

30 hours of that little bastard. But but my Monferno became an Infernape! That's pretty wicked, believe me.

Well, that's pretty much it for April. Some stuff happened, I guess. Pretty average month. Although I did get to play two very awesome games, though.

Even more pointless and short commentary!:

-Spider-Man 3 on Friday, yay!
-I'm perfectly okay with Galactus-cloud.
-Why can't I find those Doom Patrol trades?
-Where the hell is Card Fighter's Clash DS?
-Wow, Kid Icarus is a bitch of a game.
-NeoGaf is filled with very angry people.
-Introduction to Political Science for two sememesters? Or two history courses and/or any combination of history and some other related thingy?

Oh, right. That's why I liked the Pokemon games when I was younger. Christ, I was playing that thing all frigging day. Had two online battles along the way.

Since I'm slow and lame, I started reading Slaughterhouse-Five today.

I used to play the SNES version of World Heroes 2 all the time when I was a kid. I played many worthless fighting games back then, but this one stands out for being absolutely bizarre while also being generic and stupid. It's the only SF knockoff where you can play as cartoonish versions of Joan of Arc, Rasputin, and Bruce Lee. Plus a Viking, witch doctor, Nazi robot, and football player with the added bonus of being able to recreate the tireless Ninja vs. Pirate showdowns.

See the ending for every character in the final game in the World Heroes series:

Or not.

Hot Fuzz

It is a very entertaining movie. It parodies cop and action movies perfectly (making everything intense for no reason). Go see it.

So close to finishing Super Paper Mario. Then I guess I'll go to the new Pokemon game on Monday, because the group is also getting it, and Pokemon is way more fun when you have other people to bitchslap, especially now that it's online.

Super Paper Mario report:

Chapter 4 was fun. There were a couple of bits running around in large, confusing areas that made fall short of the greatness of Chapter 3. But the shooter bits (especially the boss) were great. Also, it has one of the most vulgar gags I've ever seen in a Mario game.

I'm rereading Sandman: Season of Mists (which is great, as expected). Only 7 books away from a full collection. And then I go deeper in my search for the great works of Morrison.

Super Paper Mario keeps getting better. Chapter 3 starts off really nicely, and ends with an incredibly funny parody that'll go over the heads of anyone who isn't aware of certain types of Japanese games. I also like where the situation with Luigi is heading (it'll probably the most badass he'll ever be, really).

So, I decide to finally start reading Kurt Vonegut's books, and then he dies. WEIRRRRD.

Jesus, I designed the rules for a card game ('s what I do with my free time). I think I actually made something decent this time. Next up: a board game. And then my ultimate goal: writing a role-playing game book. What kind of goal is that? Thanks, Jesus.


A Harvey Birdman game in the Phoenix Wright style? Sweet jesus, it's like a dream. I really hope the shitty developer doesn't fuck it up.

Back to Life

Hey, I spent 33 hours without the computer.

I also got Super Paper Mario. Fun as of so far.

This is how Iron Man's proto-armor should look like!

I'm completely surprised how well this movie is coming together. Who would've thunk it?

7-11 has Spider-Man 3 cups. They use the same flashy-3D-moving technology as past tie-in cups, and they are the slickest looking of all. Unfortunately, they're like 3 times smaller. I think the Spongebob ones were bigger. So, at $2.50(CDN) a pop, they will likely only be bought by nerds like me.

One of them does have the clearest picture of Venom in this movie we've seen so far.

Insanity strikes

Digimon used to be a major segment of me. But that was before, and another tale by itself.

See this Wiki article about Digimon evolution?

Go right to the bottom. Notice the category?

"Articles that need to differentiate between fact and fiction"


Then again...

Jesus, I just liked the cartoon when I was 12.

Old news: a bunch of indy comics character cross over!.

Here's a fun fact: it includes the third Captain Canuck, a character who was created by two guys from my home town (I knew somebody who knew them, as well). So that's really cool for them. I wish my characters could be in the same comic as Madman...

Old Timey

So Brad Metzler put the Hall of Justice into the new issue of JLA

I thought the Super Friends fetish was exclusive to Alex Ross?

Grant Morrison is writing the script for the movie based on the game Area 51 (the recent one.)

I hope he can find a way to insert some Grant Morrison-isms in there.

Easter Candy!

I love Easter candy. But you already knew that. So let's get to business:

Aside from classics like Cream Eggs, Mini-Eggs, and Bunnies, I'd like to add another to the 'essential' category: Reese's chocolate eggs. A somewhat flat egg-shaped chocolate/peanut butter collision that tastes as good as any peanut butter cup. I could eat these things all year round.

Last year I got to experience the weirdest of all Easter candy creations, the Smarties Peanut Butter Egg, which combined Chocolate, peanut butter, and Smarties in ways I never thought imaginable. Well, this year, I can't seem to find that monstrosity again, but I did find it's slightly less interesting kin: The Smarties Chocolate Egg. It looks pretty much the same as the peanut butter one, but without the peanut butter and with the regular blue Smarties packaging colour. I haven't tried one yet, but I may before Sunday.

I would generally avoid Eggies, the poor man's Mini-Eggs. Especially since there are not one, but three brands of Mini-Eggs this year: the 'classic' variety, the Pop Rock-filled ones (which I believe I mentioned earlier), and the all-new dark chocolate variety. There's something for everyone (except people who don't like mini-eggs, who will henceforth be called Heretics).

More to come, hopefully. There is a whole aisle filled with this stuff to be explored.

250th post

I miss having Flash. It allowed me to make so much. And without it, there is so little I can use to make...things.

And I, like many many other people, am calling The Master appearing by the end of the new Doctor Who season, which just started Saturday.

More like - HALL OF SHAME

Here's the 'Definitve 200 Albums'.

Aside from obvious great inclusions (anything by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc.), it's filled with some incredible laughs. Highlights:

21. Shania Twain LOL
57. 50 Cent LOL
84. Linkin Park LOL
95. Creed LOL
97. Celine Dion LOL
99. Dirty Dancing Soundtrack LOL
103. Titanic soundtrack LOL
162. Avril Lavigne LOL
172. Shakira LOL

The rankings make this list even more hilarious. David Bowie doesn't even get into the top 100. Neither does OK Computer. Look at that list above. They are outranked by LINKIN PARK. FIDDY. AND CREED.

They atleast included Odelay, but 1000 Odelays couldn't save this from being just laughably bad. Not that it's exactly a shocking revelation that music sales corps really don't have a clue about what makes a great album.
