Last post was August! Wah!

Still alive, just not online much these days. LJ just isn't as lively as it once was. Also, I closed my blogspot as I realized I wasn't using it and none of my friends there had noticed my absence.

In case you hadn't noticed, Capcom are asking fans to make submissions to celebrate the 25th birthday of Street Fighter. They want music and art. Since a looped recording of me shouting "CUNTS!" would seem a little inappropriate, I settled for a slightly less offensive/more subtle art piece. Behold!

I would encourage you all to do the same!

There is an old woman who works in the bakery in our village. And while I don't really mean this, I fucking hate her! She never listens to what you say and acts offended when you correct her as she shoves anything she feels like into your shopping. She takes ages because all she wants to do is gossip with her work mates. She will stand there, with your change in her hand for ages, talking about babies, parties, the unjust management of the place, the weather, the rude customer that just left, etc. She is rude, ignorant and really rubs me up the wrong way.

Basically, she's a cock-juggling thunder cunt.

And I don't like her.

2d toad

I know the current stuff is getting a little old. And this isn't from the perspective of someone who is worried about keeping up to date. But is it really wise to release a new $400+ console when the economy is in such a bad state? A lot of economists are saying things might get worse, too.

I think it would be better to start releasing a wave of budget games, with online components. Keep people buying and subscribing. Maybe take their time. If the dev. kits are not going to be out until the end of the year, that means that, realistically, with all the shipping and printing times, companies will have about 8 months to make the new Xbox launch titles. 8 months to blow us away and make us want to part with a huge stack of notes in such hard times.... Doesn't seem to be a good idea.

This is the point, though, when I remember that it is illegal for a corporation to *not* make money. If some one suggests there is money to be made, these assholes are bound to try and make it. Plus $400 doesn't seem like a lot when you're on over $100,000 plus bonuses.

I saw In Time on Tuesday afternoon. Really enjoyed it. Rather than being what was promised, it was more of a "Bonny and Clyde and Sci-fi" film. It would have been much braver and exciting to have killed them at the end, although, without changing the last half-hour, that would have been really depressing.

Also - this film contains an excess of sexy elbow-length gloves. Plus point!

Just watched this movie. About twenty years too late, I know. It was amazing - mostly for the dialogue and acting. It truly deserves to be on a list of "films to see before you die". 4.5/5

Just finished our weekly RPG - this week it was our DC game. Best bit: when Adrian's character revealed to the group that he voted for Lex Luthor for President.... That one, er, took some explaining!
16th-Oct-2011 12:30 pm - Fucking Idiots. (online reviews)
I don't have an icon to fully express my rage, so I'm going with the impotent online nerd rage. ;)

The more I read online video game reviews, the more convinced I am that these people are idiots. Here's why. They type like they're writing their personal blog. There is no degree of journalism or professionalism. There must be something automatic clicking in their heads, like how emails somehow make you more casual, as they sit down to type.

I find this even more annoying than the "beautiful woman presents video" trope.
