Stuff I Missed

While I was away from the internet, having a "real life" pphhtt.

Because I feel they can't wait till next week, plus I have a really solid post brewing already that I can use for it, I will present these new findings here . . .

First, NEW "Meet the . . ." Yes! they did come out wiht the Medic, and there are even some fantastic outakes for that particular story, but more recently,



If I don't see the "pryo-vison" flame thrower as a cosplay by the end of Con season, I'm not sure our nerds are doing their jobs.

Also, I might be reading a little too much into this, and I am not consciously trying to be a sexist pig, but I love how one MIGHT interpret the Pyro as a sadistic woman, as alluded to by The Heavy, the "girly" world the Pyro lives in and perhaps even the need to "take care" of the Blu babies as a maternal instinct? Oh yes, and please read all of those thoughts as if recited by a nerd voice with lots of lisping.


What's "The FP" you may ask? GET YOURSELF LEARNED SON!

WHATS TAT BITCH!? YOU WANT MORE!?! you got it, tatsy-tits . . .

Don't worry, not dead, just Terminally busy (and no, not on Termenus, as much as I would like)

And also, unfortunately it's not about anything in particular I havn't talked about previously or care to expound upon.

For those that REALLY MUST KNOW, I had a sort of family emergency that put me out of wack for a good two days solid, and then on top of work and rehearsal, our store is at the Cow Palace again this weekend for the Gun Show, so that kept us busy as well, AND T1nk finally opened all three of her shows over the last two weeks, so of course I had to go see those, usually after work, after fight call's on Saturdays, or even taking her to rehearsal, doing some reading while I waited for her to be finished (as wireless is spotty out at the farm, I could not really work on the blog).

Just as reminders though:



and then we're both going down to SDCC and will actually be spending most of our time at G4m3rCon!!!

Wow, thats like, the Styrifoam Anniversary isn't it? or is that the 3rd month?
Yes! I know the 3rd is the actual date but, damn if I wasnt busy from Fanime, and now my show, and of course work as we hired one new guy and still only have 3 halves of 3 other employees, so hopefully we will hire one more to balance it out.

ANYWAY. In the vein of our regular Anniversayr Posts, I will LINK TO OLD POSTS!!!!
This is me holding a functional Odachi. No big deal.
As well as to hopefully get some of my more recent readers acquainted with the kind of frippery I post up here. Let's dive right in, shall we!

Finding A Path Through Three and a Half!
A short breakdown of my initial forays into Pathfinder as oppsed to 3.5. It still holds true and am running two short campaigns, both using Pathfinder system as the two games I normally play in are on hiatus for a month or two and THOSE TWO ARE ALSO PATHFINDER!

3rd 4 Teh NRRD: April '10
MC Hawking. an old guard Nerdcore playa that will always be Rollin! For Extra Credit Check These Other Doc's! I still hope and dream that one day The hot Doc Hawk will drop some Science on us again.

Remember Memeorables!
Silent! & Sultry AND Silly!

AND A Couple Reviews on media, like
Cartoons! and Books! And Cartoons (for those who can't scroll down two posts!)

And a video . . . . To round out our usual theme. (Made me think of my buddy Knapplesauce, who IS my IRL Guile. Love ya Bro!*)

3rd 4 t3h NRRD: June '12

Should Oceania ever rise to power, these guys will be among the many to be put to death, as they are unashamedly . . .
Like some previous Bosses, this crew is a buy one get more free setup as a several bright lights keep this group aflame! They have been a fixture on the scene for some time now and continue to produce fantastic content.

Either individually,
as founder Mikal kHill has a smooth steady pace with occasional super speed realms vocally that compells the listener to concentrate and really hear what's being said, this provides an excellent contrast and compliment to fairly consistent partner Sulfur.
This cat provides a snarl, a dark, bouncy and poignant emphasis with rhythm that pulls you in with visceral intent.
Combine this with masterful mixing and pro-level beats. The only reason to NOT listen to them would be lyrical content.
All about those roots, son! Know your references!
And that would be silly as they cover a wide swath of topics form the fantastically nerdy to the painfully real, as well as throwing down collab. after collab. to keep the sound itself fresh.
They have often worked with Tribe One, Romero Shaw, Shane Hall & Adam Warrock, just to name a few. 
If that last one seems familiar in context, well you would be right as there was an EPIC BROWNCOATS MIXTAPE born of that union.
And this particular focus is timely in that apparently some of the last touches on the Slyhtherin Mixtape are being finished.

I can't wait to snag that! Bang it while reppin' that Hogwarts crest!

summer wars

Holy Cow This movie is a adorable and you need to go out and watch it NOW, like NAO!
Okay, I will concede, it's a little "cute" but really, I was riveted for the last hour & a half of the movie. T1nk noted early on in the movie that it was a bit slow, but shortly after she said that she didn't ask a single question till the film finished.

I keep telling people that it's kind of like what would happen if Miyazaki took War Games and updated it and set it in Japan, and instead of a government defense computer it's Google.

I was at Fanime and was looking at the programing to find something that tickled my interest and saw this title. I couldn't remember a single thing about it but something at the back of my brain went, "yeah, that one!" So I listened. I was well rewarded.

There was a malfunction near the end of the film and it seemed as if the computer they were running the film on died, and everyone kinda sat in stunned silence for a minute. As soon as it became apparent that the PC was back up and running, restarting the movie and then fast forwarding to the place we left off, NOBODY LEFT. And the AV guy was like "no, I have to start it from exactly where we left off as we don't have much time, the next film needs to start on time" but I think they made the wise decision to let us watch it till a little over time as we would have nerd raged had they cut the film short.

And in a rare occurrence, I ran right out and bought it Tuesday after the Con and made T1nk watch it with me. I have also been slavering on about it to my other friends that they need to watch it. AND NOW YOU!
Here's a music vid I found that was fairly cool. I TRIED finding a clip or a trailer for it but the English dub was kind of lame. Doesn't matter either way CAUSE YOU NEED TO GO WATCH THE MOVIE!
