So as written hither-to in my previous post about my disappointment in modern anime I said I'd eventually check out some animes I've had my eyes on and it looks like that day has come. Yesterday I checked out "Highschool Of The Dead". "High School Of The Dead" is one of those anime series that constantly referenced for copious amount of fan service;
Case in point
Anyway, on my quest to inspect anime I've diced to give this series a shot and while I've only seen the first episode, I'm gonna drop a review and my thoughts. So here we go!
No. That's the short answer. No. No and Nope. And in case you didn't read it the first time, NO! Sadly, there are some individuals who won't accept "No." as answer and will demand a more lengthy discussion of the topic. Okay, fine twist my arm, as if I haven't addressed the topic, time and time and time again, no. Because someone decided there is a contingency of people who really believe that comic books are dominated by extremely racist, sexist, misogynist bigots, I believe I have to address this using my African American immunity. Let's dive in.
Welcome back Linkin Park! After "The Hunting Party" which in my opinion was open ass on a copy machine bad (save for a few tracks), Linkin Park is BACK with a capital "B" with "One More Light" and man is this album good! Let's dive in!
I told you guys I was going to do more of these and today I was lucky enough to score an interview with Youtube's premier Wrestling Reviewer Brian Zane owner of the channel Wrestling With Wregret. If you're a huge wrestling fan like me but haven't watched wrestling legit for years but still keeps abreast of what's going on, Brian Zane is the guy you wanna watch. He reviews current events, looks at the past and also talks about other wrestling related topics. If you're not subscribed to him, subscribe! Here's the interview!
Howdy! So while the news week has been incredibly slow visa-vi film, TV, comic books and video games, I felt nonetheless that a Strange Log was in order just to sort out the various riff-raff that isn't worth an entire article.
So this is something I'm trying to do more of in the future and this is the beginning. I'm a Youtuber and I enjoy many other Youtubers but one of my favorite Youtubers is a guy who runs the channel Goodbadflicks. If you haven't checked out his channel, IT'S INCREDIBLE. Cecil Trachenburg is a film reviewer who is INSANELY level headed and makes his points calmly and factually. I sent a feeler out to see if he'd be down for an interview and he was down to do it! If you haven't checked out his channel, DO SO! He's a great reviewer with a calm voice that I'm ashamed I couldn't do an audio version of this interview. So here's the interview, hope you enjoy!
So ladies & gentlemen. I know this is a late post but you can't blame me. On Apr. 27th 2017 I became a Father. So allow me to introduce you to my son, Draygen Ramon Session. As you can imagine I've been busy with this little guy but rest assured, blogs will still come. Thanks for all the support my lovely readers, all 1 of you.
I haven't discussed Marvel's Netflix series on my Blog much, not because I haven't seen them, that's a bold face lie, I watched the hell outta Seasons 1 & 2 of "Daredevil", loved me some "Jessica Jones", had fun with "Luke Cage" and I'm still unsure what to make of "Iron Fist". That being said, Marvel has been owning film and while DC is killing it in the TV realm (more or less) Marvel's Netflix series raised the bar and now they're diving into the obvious and eventual team up series "The Defenders" and finally we have a trailer for it. Let's dive in!
Not only did we get a trailer for "House Of Cards" Season 5, but now we got 2 trailers! We got a trailer for "The Dark Tower" & the upcoming Netflix series "The Defenders", combining the characters of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones & Iron Fist to stand against the great evil known as The Hand. So what do I think of these two? Let's dive in and see what we can speculate!
Here we are lad and lasses, yet another Strange Log where I just go through various miscellania about my life and other things. BEWARE, THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE "SPLIT". Ya'll ready, here we go!
Here we are, living the dream as more "Star Wars" has arrived to our screens in a timely fashion to get some questions and speculation out. This time we're taking a look at The New Trilogy's 2nd entry "The Last Jedi" and I'll be sharing my thoughts on what I believe to be the most interesting pieces of the trailer. Here we go.
If you guys haven't read my Game Crazy blog then let me talk a bit about my recent obsession with board games. Growing up, I was never a board gamer. None of my friends played them and none of them owned any. Of course we had Monopoly but I loathe Monopoly utterly and completely. Anyway, I've been playing "Mysterium" and "Pandemic" but "T.I.M.E Stories" is an incredibly unique game that I just have to discuss in this blog post. Here we go!
It surprised me that I've never written an article about this. Whenever I'm confronted with the question of "What animes are you watching?" and such I always have the same reply, "Me and anime broke up. She said somethings, I said somethings and we decided we were better off seeing other people. We got back together around Death Note, and that was great but we knew it was only temporary.". I say that a lot but I never elaborated on that and in this article I'm going to talk about my issues with anime as it stands now and what is exactly up with my old flame.
Okay, now that the dust has settled around "Grimm", I can write this article. I've made case, after case, after case about the glaring issues with "Grimm" and even now I can still see some considerable issues but I won't address those issues so much. Rather than just being some guy complaining about a show online, I figured how about I show you guys how I could have done "Grimm" better! Before I continue I'd like to say that minus a few missteps in my opinion, I really did enjoy the finale of "Grimm" and I didn't think I was going to. But I digress, let's do the previous seasons of "Grimm" better and see what we can do.
FINALLY!! Geez! If there was EVER something I was waiting for, it was this! Whether you were waiting for this negatively or positively or wasn't even aware it existed (like a good 80% of the internet, shocking, right?) we're going to talk about the American Adam Wingard "Death Note" teaser and see what we see! Let's dive in!
So incase you live under a rock or could careless about the latest video game news, Naughty Dog's 2013 MASSIVE hit game "The Last Of Us" is getting a sequel. This is news to me as I thought I wasn't going to happen and this is news to everyone else since they were waiting for it. However, while I'm excited for the sequel in a small dose (after all I refuse to purchase a PS4 for one game) my apprehension in regards to "The Last Of Us part II" is the return of Joel & Ellie as main characters. Why? Here's why.
Comic Books have been dying a slow death for a LONG time now, ever since The New 52 and the insanity of turning Beast Boy red (they've turned him Green again but still...). But now Comic Books are just becoming another platform infested with the eyeball rolling worldview of Modern Day Feminism. If it's not She-Thor (whom I've dubbed Thorina) punching Absorbing-Man in the face (not for robbery but for using "Feminism as a four letter word", actual quote), to Odin's Father offering "Red Pill MRA Menninist casual racism Unsolicited opinions on Israel" (again direct quote) and Wonder Woman at long last FINALLY coming out as bisexual after YEARS of speculation, we finally get these gems from Gail Simone once again showcasing what's wrong with comic books these days and entertainment as a whole.
This is going to be a strange article (very apt, considering the name of the blog) but I digress. I've been feeling a tiring out of sorts. Entertainment has hit an INCREDIBLE high! We got comic book movies coming out of every orifice, we got "Star Wars" movies coming out every year, we got Netflix shows blowing up like crazy: "Stranger Things", "Iron Fist", "The Defenders", "House Of Cards" and we got brand new video games breaking out. We're truly living in an era where entertainment is ruling the roost, so what's going on?
I'm a HUGE wrestling gamer. I loved wrestling games ever since the days of "WWF: Warzone" (so you know I got cred). The main reason why was because of Create A Wrestler Mode. A function of the game where you get to create your own wrestler with their own moves, entrances and so on. Then "WWF: Attitude" upped the ante in allowing you to create an arena and create a PPV and introduced a Career Mode. Now I was a Nintendo64 for guy so unfortunately I never got to play any of the SMACKDOWN series for Playstation that I hear were actually REALLY good, but when I gotta Playstation 2 "SMACKDOWN!: Shut Your Mouth" & "SMACKDOWN: Here Comes The Pain" were my go to games and I also did partake of the awesomeness that was "WrestleMania 2000" & "WWF: No Mercy". Then the "SMACKDOWN vs. Raw" series came out and more creative ability came with it. I gotta PS3 VERY late in the game so my last wrestling game purchase was "WWE2K14" and at long last I got what I've finally been missing in wrestling games all my life, the ability to add custom music. With, the ability to create a story, a title, an arena, a whole show and 100 create a wrestler slots I had finally gotten everything I had ever wanted in a wrestling game...but alas, my victory was a hollow one, here's why after the break;
