Okay Then

This is my favorite video as of current.

I may get something to talk about later.

Has it really been more than a week since I last posted? Alas, it has. Sorry 'bout that.

Been reading Cloud Atlas. It's definitely an interesting book, what with it's unusual structure and constant tonal changes. I can't help but feel it's a bit...too enamored with it's own clever characters at times, but nothing too obnoxious.

Also read the three Planetary trades and volumes 7 and 8 of Sandman. Now everything on my rack has been used at least once. It was enjoyable, and I must get more comics soon.

Well, soon enough, my laptop will leave my home and go get hinge repairs. I've been planning this for...three weeks now? I spent the first freaking out because the company is required to check my computer for illegal things (of which I have none, but plenty of nerdy crap I don't want anybody to look at and judge me from afar with). But I have since backup'd everything (which I needed to do anyway) and deleted it. So it is good to go, I'm just too lazy to make the call and get my number before giving the thing to Staples. Sigh.

You know what? Finding Your Webcomic is Bad was probably a good thing for me. Reading these criticisms has made me re-examine the ideas I pursue and how I write. I try to make characters far more defined, think about trying to create more original plots, hell even tweak my mind's eye view of designs. But even so, after reading Sandman, I can't help but want to dream up similar things. I need a voice o' my own, dammit!

In the 'How' files...

How can something like this happen? How could I not know about it until now. How come I like that slightly stylized Noheart (if you consider 'bad' to be a style) so much?


Now, um, Street Fighter IV. It was announced months ago, but only now do I feel like responding to it.

Now, being a big fan of the series, specifically Street Fighter III, this is somewhat a whirlpool of reactions we have so far. On one hand, yay new Street Fighter!. Yay, Japanese developers! But on the other hand, too much trying to be Street Fighter II again! No parrying (or so it seems)! I've played the original 8 SF characters to death at this point!

But still, the new gameplay concepts intrigue me. As much as the game looks to be trying to recapture the spirit of SFII, the new focus on intuition and sacrifice sounds like it could mix things up quite a bit. I also like the rough, cartoony graphical style that others seemingly don't.

The two new announced characters...aren't bad, but I've seen nothing of their fighting styles and thus can't have much of an opinion on them at this point. Their character designs are okay, not all too creative (especially Mr. Blue Gi Aryan), but they have potential. I hope they bring in a luchador too (specifically, El Stingray from Saturday Night Slam Masters. C'mon, they love these kinds of cameos!)

So yeah, can't wait. Online play, too.


I watched Robocop on TV over the weekend. Made me want to write corporate dialogue all week. It is a good movie indeed.

Dead People

Well, not only did Roy Scheider die, so did Stever Gerber! 2008 is turning out to be a great year for no longer living.

I've been down with the sickness lately, but now I am better.

Also, it seems Joe Mathlete has returned to explaining today's Marmaduke. Quite excellent!

I guess I'm going to go see Rush in May. I like Rush. They are fine.

What is happening with my iTunes and the freezing and the not ejecting and the thing that WON'T WORK PROPERLY.

Less than a month for Smash Bros. BTW. Go visit my other blog for all the info! It is the shiznit, as they say.

Truly the greatest ending of all time

Can't really be thinking of much to write about when your time is devoted either to writing for classes or frothing over Smash Bros. But here I be, with as much to say as I can think of.


Of course, the Loch Ness Monster looks different in real life.

If you're wondering why I don't share more political opinions, it's because (a)You don't care, (b)I have the coherence of a gibbering oranguatang when it comes to what I believe in, and (c)I do that for school. Unless you want me to copy/paste my half-hearted response to Yoder essays. Which you don't.

Thank you for having a question you never asked be answered!
