I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit.
So, guilty pleasures. It’s a phrase that a lot of people tend to throw around. It’s something that’s based around the idea that there are just certain things we aren’t supposed to like, or at least like seriously.
In case you couldn’t tell, I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Grohl: Guilty pleasures are bullshit.
So, last week it was announced that Konami will be releasing a new Silent Hill game (for which you can see the trailer above). Seeing as how I am a GIGANTIC Silent Hill fan, I have thoughts about this.
(UPDATE) According to a post at The Mary Sue, Mr. Queen has apparently retracted the lawsuit threats and apologized. Good on him.
So, for those of you who don’t frequent Tumblr, there’s this blog on the site known as EscherGirls. It’s mission statement is basically to critique (and occasionally mock) poorly drawn female anatomy in comics and other media.
Apparently, an artist named Randy Queen feels that critique of his artwork is a personal attack on him and decided to throw the adult version of a tantrum.
It was recently announced that Blizzard will be premiering the cinematic for the upcoming World Of Warcraft expansion, Warlords Of Draenor, on August 14th. The event is set to take place at 9:30 PDT at Ace Theater in Los Angeles. According to the website:
A storm of iron is headed Azeroth’s way—be among the first to witness its fury at the world premiere of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic! Join Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime, Chris Metzen, and World of Warcraft designers Ion Hazzikostas and Brian Holinka for the grand unveiling, streamed live from the Ace Theatre in Los Angeles. But that’s not all—we’ll also host a live interview with the WoW developers, announce the Warlords of Draenor launch date, and debut the first episode of a new animated lore mini-series: Lords of War. You won’t want to miss it!
They’ll also be livestreaming the event at WorldofWarcraft.com for us sorry bastards who don’t live in LA, though those who actually attend will receive a key for the beta. Unfortunately, since I do have a day job, I will not be able to view it myself since I will be at work. But rest assured, loyal readers, I will definitely be talking about it when I get home.
So, the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal hit various streaming sites today. I just watched it with my roommate (I was thinking of watching it this morning, but if I watched it without her, she would have murdered the fuck out of me) and I have thoughts about it.
I think that may be one too many colons in the title of this post, but I’m not really sure how to remedy that. Anyway, I was going to write this post much earlier, but I am a terrible procrastinator. Then my regular computer died. Thankfully, I have a laptop that’s only slightly less awesome than my desktop at playing games, so that isn’t as awful as it could have been. Anyway, enough excuses. On to the review!
So, I was browsing through Tumblr (as I do) when the Black Widow poster for the upcoming film Captain America: The Winter Soldier popped up on my dash. For the few people who have yet to see it, it looks like this:
So, I was looking at it, and it looks a little off. And then it hit me: she looks broken. And I don’t mean psychologically or emotionally broken; I mean it fucking looks like someone physically broke her.
I mean, look at this clusterfuck. Her arms look like they’re ten feet long. Is Scarlett Johansson secretly a Stretch Armstrong doll? Also, where did her internal organs go? Her waist’s been photoshopped to be as wide as her jaw, for Christ’s sake!
And what is up with her pose? It looks extremely awkward, and not dynamic at all. She looks like an action figure. A poorly proportioned action figure.
I mean, is this supposed to be sexy? Because it’s really not. It’s just awkward and wrong.
Those are Mountain Dew flavored Cheetos. From Japan (naturally).
Part of me kinda wants to try them just to see what they taste like. And another part of me just threw up in my mouth.
I’m pretty sure most of you are pretty familiar with Allie Brosh’s blog of the same title. If you aren’t, go ahead and click the link and read it, as it is fucking hilarious and everybody should read it.
So, I got the book for Christmas this year from my lovely older sister and figured I’d tell everybody what I thought of it. In short, I loved it.
All right, I know I said I was going to post this on Monday, but that didn’t happen, mainly because I wasn’t sure where to start. Not to mention the fact that I am far too easily distracted, and a chronic procrastinator.
Long story short, I actually liked this movie. A lot.
