Sometimes The Internet gets drunk and says something stupid and you want to complain... or let us know how we're doing.
Hello , wrestling fans! We are just over 24 hours removed from WWE Fast Lane. I come to you as a modest man, as this time around, I only went .500 (3-3) in my predictions. I screamed at my TV more than a few times for being wrong, but being wrong is also fun (and I’m not just saying that!) It’s always nice when WWE throws you some curve balls and gets you thinking. The grieving period is always short, as there is always another pay per view event right around the corner to keep fantasy booking, and get your groove back.
WWE dropped the ball in the month of February. Swapping out the traditional Elimination Chamber event for Fast Lane, WWE has given us what appears to be a glorified Monday Night Raw card, and once again they are trying to pass it for a pay per view quality event. Perhaps it’s the fact that once again, WWE has given the month of February on the network free to new subscribers. I’d rather take that free U2 album on Itunes. The card is missing some big names and has some lackluster matchups, but I’m a glass half full kind of guy, so I hope WWE progresses the full Road to Wrestlemania story and we can see some unexpected things heading into the pay per view free month of March.
I myself spent a long time in Minecraft, first making a standard castle complete with rooms tower stairs, a grand hall – I then moved on to making a city complete by leveling an island and making shopping and residential districts. I thankfully had enough clarity to look up and realize that months had passed and I should probably get on with passing college.
Starship Troopers, by Robert Heinlein. A novel published in 1959 that exercises supreme influence over modern science fiction, including Aliens, Mobile Suit Gundam, Warhammer 40,000, Starcraft, and probably a lot more by proxy. If you want to blame any single thing for the proliferation of space marine power fantasies, this book is probably it. In a two-part series, I will discuss the novel and the 1997 film adaptation.
So I just finished reading a phenomenal novel called The Martian – to not give any spoilers it’s about a botanist/mechanical engineer who’s stranded on Mars. However one of the key elements that makes the book so great aside from how real and honest the characters are – is the pervading science which never feels preach-y or too exposition-y and more importantly drives the plot in a realistic way.
GOOD NEWS EVERYONE. NATSUCON IS BACK FOR 2015. BETTER NEWS? NERDFIT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED AS GUESTS
Many have called the death of Aeris in FF7 one of the most shocking moments in video game history. (Wait people die in video games?) However if they knew the true story behind Aeris and her role in FF7 they would considering such reality far more shocking.
There’s been a few seasons between D-Frag and now, and I find myself silently comparing similar animes to it that are releasing. This is odd because while I admit that it does do some visual comedy right, overall it wasn’t a great anime. I then realized it was doing something as equally powerful to set up it’s gag – it was blocking the character.
