GWFT1030E-9 - Limited - Mens Watches | Casio - G-Shock

It makes total sense that a 30th Anniversary Frogman G-Shock is available to buy on gshock.com. I’t s yellow and $1700 USD MSRP. That atomic clock isn’t worth it. The Rangeman and Mudman are far better values for my budget.

How I Fell In Love With The Dorkiest Game Of The Year

The thing about MMOs is that there is no doubt that hard work pays off. If you put in the time, complete what you are supposed to complete, your character improves. Rewards are received. In real life, I have found this to be tenuous at best. This also takes a very long time. The Last of Us can be beaten in 18 hours. That might not even be enough time to get a player to level 10 out of 50. 

She’s right about one thing. Other human beings are always trying to interfere with our inner peace. When one plays a MMO, expect real life to interfere quite a bit.

Sony upgrades Shinji's ratchet old SDAT tape player with HD audio - JAPANATOR

Any piece of real tech branded with Evangelion triggers my inner fanboy. It is kind of baffling that in a world with the Magi and Evangelion tech, that consumer electronics would still use magnetic tape. Then again it does seem a bit ridiculous that Misato would be making car payments in Tokyo III. Why wouldn’t NERV get her a car?

Joffrey’s death is the kind of chaos that Game Of Thrones excels at.

I didn’t think they were going to do it on the show. In a world that is cruel and unfair, Joffrey was nature’s cruelest mistake. That doesn’t mean that the world can’t be unfair to him. NO ONE IS SAFE! We can’t rely on Joffrey to be the menace he is any more. 

It’s now going to be Lucha Libre for the crown. Not that is wasn’t already, but the time for plotting is over. There’s a dead king with no heirs. Kings Landing is going to be a warzone.

Belle Knox inspiring more NYC co-eds to be strippers

I like that the story is that she’s inspiring girls to want to strip, rather then inspiring girls who entered the sex industry to go to college.

Also… this is a bullshit story. New York City has a population of 10 million. It’s kind of dubious a D level porn star really was the inspiration for entering the sex industry.  NeNe Leakes is way more plausible as an inspiration.

Man of Steel is flawed, but not terrible.

Last night I got to watch Man of Steel. I felt that it was a flawed movie, but not enough to ruin the whole experience. Zach Snyder got a few things right about the DC World, while disregarding some of the Superman cannon. He nailed the world of Superman. In the DC Earth, horrifying disasters are commonplace. People are always picking fights with Clark Kent. 

Henry Cavill was perfectly cast to be Superman. Physically, he meets the criteria. He’s also a capable enough actor. The kid who played a young Clark Kent was also perfectly cast. 

Michael Shannon was a terrible casting choice for General Zod. He brought exactly no menace to the role. His portrayal was that of a civil servant doing his job. I can’t imagine he was a first or second choice. Wonder what the story was with that…

The fight sequences in the second half of the movie were insane. They were the closest we’ll probably get to seeing Dragonball Z level fights in cinema.  I think people that watched Metropolis get thrashed forgot that the people of this world just accept it. The Americans of our world would be messed up mentally forever after surviving something.

Pa Kent was the strangest character in the whole movie. For a Kansas farmer, he had a very high level view of what would happen if his adopted son’s alien origins came out. His convictions were so strong that he gave his life without hesitation.  That’s just kind of crazy.

I think if someone else was cast for General Zod, this movie would have been more then the sum of its action scenes. That character needed someone who had some passion about killing everyone on Earth to resurrect Krypton. A hero is as only good as his or her villain. If there is a sequel to this (that isn’t Superman vs Batman) it goes the route of of continuing with the crazy over the top comic book madness,
