In a desperate bid to get back into the swing of writing I'd like to talk about something very near and dear to me
I love money
and when a man as cheap as me is willing to part with it
It definitely should be noted
I'm going to try to talk about the things so awesome that, in this world of piracy and bootlegging and "Fair-Usage" I could get for free with varying amounts of effort.
But am willing to pay for anyways
Where to start on these guys?
I guess the only way to describe their music would be
Hope Rides Alone
awesome beyond belief
they've just recently released a second album
I would suggest buying both
although there is a definate change in tone between the two
The first album simply titled "The Protomen" has a sort of Cyberpunk-rock sound feel to it often using riffs from the games themselves and 8-bit inspired synthesizers behind wailing guitars
The Will of One
whereas the second album "The Father of Death"
draws heavy inspiration from 1980's rock I'm honestly not sure what sub category it's called but I'm definately reminded of themes from movies Escape from new york and Rocky 3 and 4 especially ( In fact they even did a cover of No Easy Way Out from Rocky 4) Breaking Out is a good example of this

So yeah just thought I'd share my thoughts on the whole resident evil 5 race controversy
I know I know this shit was brought up weeks ago but penny arcade just recently reminded me of it
Fig1: Litmus test
Now Resident Blaxpert (technical term) / college educated mouthpiece NÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Gai Croal weighed in and seemed to implicate that all gamers who weren't instantly offended by the resident evil 5 trailer had somehow inadvertently become racist
There was a lot of imagery in that trailer that dovetailed with classic racist imagery. What was not funny, but sort of interesting, was that there were so many gamers who could not at all see it. Like literally couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see it. So how could you have a conversation with people who donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re talking about and think that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re sort of seeing race where nothing exists?
I'd like you to reread that last bit

Fig 2: The voice of overeducated sensationalist pricks everywhere
he points out in his argument for why we're so fucking racist the very point I'm trying to get across as to why we're not....
Umm... remember that episode of South Park where they wanted to change the town flag?
Yeah this would be a few years ago when Isaac Hayes was still alive and before the show got all preachy and started drawing lines in the sand
AAAnyways during the episode the boys didn't see why chef was so mad. they weren't racist
They simply didn't see the color difference
And that's exactly whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happened here
When I watched the trailer I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see a white man killing black people
I saw a human killing zombies
Excuse the fuck out of me Mr. Crole
For not seeing the world with the same accusing eyes as you
An equally irate individual writes: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I enjoyed the fact he didn't give any examples. Most likely because it's a non-issue and if he listed his racist points he'd look like a tit. Most gamers don't see any racism because it does no exist and this isn't 1950 anymore. Racism isn't nearly the issue it used to be. In fact people are so PC these days that Americans are so confused about what to call black people and end up calling all black people African-Americans and, in turn, making themselves look thick.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Well put (even if the rest of the Article did kinda take a detour into Rantville)
But waitÃ¢â‚¬Â¦if killing zombies of a different race or nationality than you is wrong. What does this mean for Louis?
Fig 3: Racist?
P.S. Awesome superhero webcomic (even if the early art kindov sucked) (It gets better though trust me)
P.P.S. Seriously Fuck you N-guy

Few things real quick
So yeah aparently the guy who designed Dudais New tower apparently based his designed on Kryptonian architecture
The watchmen movie isn't real
it's just 10 minutes of cool looking footage
it's just a con by warner brothers
Ricardo Montalban, 1920-2009
He dies yet Andy Dick is still alive?
Is there no justice
P.s. The Spoony Experiment Mr. Antwiler is no fool

So yesterday i watched on the better horror movies I've seen in a long while
The Midnight Meat Train
I know horrible title right?
or Awesome title
I mean where are the texas chainsaw massacres of today?
nowhere to be found
all modern horror movies have vague and ambiguous titles to confuse you and distract from there mediocre content.
but just say it MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN
Nothing good can happen in a movie with that title
no happy endings
It's making a clear declaration of intent and purpose; and boy does it make good
I'll run the story down for you:
there's this vegetarian photographer who's trying to make it big
he gets his shot but he needs some better material
in his quest to find it he stumbles upon a woman being mugged after saving here and finding out the next day that she went missing
he begins to look into her disappearance and comes upon a truly enormous butcher named Mahogany who as it turns out is actually a serial killer
Who didn't see that coming
so anyways he goes insane trying to find this guy yadda yadda you can probably guess the rest
look the story isn't supposed to be dazzling alright
it's supposed to be brutal and gory. take it from me this movie is both
I mean the fight at the end of the movie is incredible
it was like Jason voorhees fought another Jason voorhees
the (2)final fight(s) aside the ending on it's own is a bit confusing but whatever it's still a pretty good movie
and Vinnie Jones makes an excellent psychopath
I mean I don't know if they had like padding on under his clothes to make him seem bigger but dear lord that guys enormous
and scary when he talks
though he's even more terrifying when he's silent
Extemporaneously yours- DXF
