Horror & Capability

For the longest time I've been thinking quite a bit about horror movies and horror as a genre entirely. I've made videos about my ideas of what horror movies really are, they're not about what they're about there more about the idea of what they're about. As an example, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" isn't about some chainsaw wielding nutcase ready to hack you and your friends up, it's actually about being on the outside of an inside joke, the fear of not knowing. Everyone in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was aware they were leading those guys to their doom EXCEPT for the main characters. That's what I mean; "Halloween" wasn't about a killer, it's about an unstoppable, unreasonable force. But I've recently found myself returning to more Lovecraftian notions of horror and really re-thinking what makes horror horror and what exactly makes it scary and I've discovered it comes down to one factor, what is that factor? Find after the break!

Anime RE-Claimed: My Hero Academia

Superheroes have kind of exploded on the scene as of late? What with Marvel's Cinematic Universe and DC death crawling it's way to catch up, not to mention TV shows featuring characters with super powers are all the rage, FOX has "The Gifted" and Hulu is coming out with "The Runaways", and with the canceled Sony Network (of all things) a show quite literally named "Powers", superheroes are a dime a dozen. Anime hasn't really been big into the whole superhero genre. Don't get me wrong there are certainly TONS of characters who have super powers and what not but a secret identity and the whole 9 yards? Naw, not even "One Punch Man" falls into the convention of standard Super Hero Genre tropes. Which brings me to "My Hero Academia". So what's up with this series, let's dive in and we'll see!

Anime RE-Claimed: Dragonball Super

Ya know, if years ago you'd have told me there was going to be another "Dragonball" series I'd have rolled my eyes and said "What?! Really?!" but in this day and age of things coming back ("24", "Prison Break", "Heroes: Reborn", "Fuller House" and I'm pretty sure I'm missing something) "Dragonball" was the LAST thing I'd expect to make a come back. But Akira Toriyama wasn't done and in 2016 came out with "Battle Of The Gods" and introduced us to Beerus and Whis, 2 divine powers that pushed Goku to a new level Super Saiyajin God. After the movie was a success, it was announced that Dragonball would get a NEW series a legit sequel (unlike "Dragonball GT") named "Dragonball Super" and now here we are and here's what I think!

Art Woes

Can I get personal, guys? I guess I can, it's my blog, right? Right. And that means I can talk about whatever I want. Guys, I gotta confession to make, you ready? I'm obsessed with women. Sounds creepy? Of course it does, I'm obsessed with women because I CAN'T DRAW WOMEN! I've said this before in another blog but I haven't been able to draw women for a LONG TIME. I've only been drawing women since the early 2000s but now I'm feeling discouraged, why? Let's get to it.

STRANGE LOG: Are We There Yet?

VICTORY IS MINE!! So I got thew new job, no longer at my old job and it is glorious!! I'm now working at a gaming store which specializes in Xbox Ones, board games, Magic The Gathering etc. etc. Needless to say this change has me in better spirits, but with a new job comes a new schedule that my wife and son are currently getting adjusted to and I'll admit, it's a struggle. At the moment I'm starting the slow death slog to pay day (the 20th) because food is getting low. That being said, let's get to what's going on thus far and things I wanna comment on. Let's dive in.
