I guess I should list some things that have changed since 2012?

  • Moved to Austin, TX

  • Fell out of love with TGWTG for the most part

  • Fell out of love with Doctor Who/Torchwood

  • Fell out of love with Avatar: the Last Airbender (Legend of Korra didn't do much for me)

  • Fell in love with Achievement Hunter

  • Found out about Steam Powered Giraffe, they're pretty awesome

  • Steven Universe dominates my life

  • Left the shipping industry as my carreer for over a decade, got work at a call center instead

  • Mass Effect is awesome but it could stand to be a little more gay than it already is

  • Five Nights at Freddy's is also pretty cool

  • Made and deleted a Tumblr because Tumblr is a drama machine

  • Made an art Tumblr and it's a lot more chill because I only follow artists (lotsa smut inside, be wary)

  • Got a boyfriend - extra super-important because I love him a lot. After swearing off romance for over a decade this is the thing I'm most surprised about

  • Embraced my inner furfag, sorta (also lotsa smut)

  • I do comics now! They kinda suck but I've been keeping on task

  • Undertale is legit but I can't play it because the Bullet Hell battles start to trigger my epillepsy :(

  • Retired several long-lasting characters of mine (they are in good hands though)

  • I don't write much anymore because I can't sit still long enough and I have trouble putting my thoughts down on paper - doing the comics has become a much better substitute

And yeah there's probably more stuff but I have to go shopping now so bye

Looking at the old entries here is like looking at a time capsule of embarrassment slurry

What's this?

Haha remember how I said I'd be posting here more often I guess I kind of forgot to do that.

So. I'm considering reviewing some of my favorite music videos of all time, and I'm looking for second opinions on one of them - just so I have an idea of where other people may stand. In this case, the video in question is the one for Genisis' Land of Confusion, which is perhaps my favorite music video of all time.

Despite that fact, though, I need you to be honest about your thoughts. I would like to have multiple perspectives on this before writing the review up (IF I can write it #sigh), so don't worry about sugar-coating it for me. Even if you don't like the song/video to begin with, whatever I can get will be swell.

Just leave your comments below. They can be as in-depth or brief as you would like to be. Thanks a lot :>

So hey LJ. What's goin' in.

Okay, so...in my second-to-recent LJ post, I made a passing comment that the month leading up to aforementioned post had not been kind to me.

That was a drop in the goddamn bucket for what came afterwards. I don't really want to air my dirty laundry in public, but it drew my attention away from LJ for a good long while.

So here I am after over eight months later, shaking off the dust and bringing a news post to the lot of you in case you haven't heard.

There's this game from a while back, like back in 2000. Some of you might have heard of it. Just a little thing. Nothing major. It was called JET SET RADIO.

This underground gem, this cult classic, was hella-influential on the gaming industry back in the day. JSR was the first video game to utilize the cel-shading visual style, a concept that spread like goddamn wildfire, kicking off what I like to call The Cel-Shading Madness era of gaming. Following JSR, everything had to be cel-shaded, from the most terrible licensed Mario Kart rip-offs, to the understung epics like Tales of Symphonia, to Legend of goddamn Zelda. EVERYTHING for the next four or five years needed to be cel-shaded. And while the fad has passed, there are still games being released today that use cel-shading, like Street Fighter IV. It's heavy stuff.

It's also my favorite game of all time, and I know versipellis loves it as well.

So it's actually kind of cool that Jet Set Radio is getting re-released on XBox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network.

That's right, I said it.

Figured I'd spread the love. :)

Elisabeth Sladen: I may have only seen a handful of episodes of Doctor Who with you in them, but I know what impact you had on the series and I'm sorry to see you leave us so soon. Rest in peace.

versipellis , I am sorry. I am so, so sorry. I'm sorry on the behalf of all Americans with good taste.

Apparently there's a live action Akira movie coming out, and the cast has been whitewashed.

It's like The Last Airbender all over again...so many people in that theater, but I was the only one who knew the true horrors that awaited...none of us emerged unchanged. The bad special effects, the wooden acting...like crawling on your hands and knees across mud-caked ground, trying not to stumble over the corpses of those who were not fortunate enough to make it out alive...

I mean, I hope it's just a big April Fool's joke, but the fact that Justin Beiber isn't one of the casting choices makes me wonder.

Got the 3DS. It's pretty cool, and I love playing Face Blasters. Also taking pictures of people and vandalizing them...IN 3D!! Hoorey!

I'm sure I'll have more to say about it when I get a game I actually give a shit about developed exclusively for the handheld. Because it has a pretty weak launch line-up.

Pants.
