Overrated Feats in Sports: Hockey Goals

6/6/2011
Hockey is such a great sport.It’s playable outdoors, and indoors. It’s not hindered much by the elements(unseasonable warmth not withstanding.) and best of all, some of the worlds best athletes play it! Goalies, believe it or not, are not that athletic.

Five Reasons Trolling Alienates People Online

Five Reasons Trolling Alienates People Online

6/15/2011
Curious as to why nobody is paying attention to you in a chat room/online game/message board/twitter? Do you feel your ideas and point of view on the world should be considered as valuable? Would you prefer to see this typed in leet speak? Troll.
I swear, read that article if you are a recovering troll, and want to get laid for once in your stupid life. You can’t kill trolls. They feed off of attention. Not possitive, not negative. They dirty bulk off attention, no matter what kind it is. It’s disgusting. they didn’t get enough love as children.
Actually, that’s an easy and inactuate way to write them off. They got plenty, but saw that they could easily get under peoples skin, and wanted to exploit that. They also smell funny, and fap non stop.
Stop trolling !

I used to be one of those kids who subscribed to gaming magazines. Yeah, I was the kid who would pull out his issue of Gamepro when it got bored in class.  Used to have a Nintendo Power subscription as well(Heard they’re shutting that down soon, bummer.) It  was a habit. Gaming was important to me back then.

 

I used to enjoy drawing a lot. I would just sketch whatever i saw in front of me, and people seemed to get a kick out of it. I didn’t do it for them though. Sometimes, they’d ask me to draw for them, and I made a bit of money when I did take them up on the offer of payment. But at some point, gaming became a stronger habit, and I stopped paying attention to my art talents(still having trouble with sitting down, and letting myself draw like I used too.)

 

One of my favorite genres was fighting games. I love King of Fighters, Street Fighter, and everything else you could think of in the 2D era. It was all good. I  believe Capcom and SNK really got together, and did a bunch of crossover games together. That was mind blowing the  first few times it happened.

 

When I first discovered this program called M.U.G.E.N., I thought it was one of the coolest things I’d ever come across online. It’s basically a do it yourself game engine, focused on creating fighting games. You can download fan made versions of your favorite characters from games, anime and comics, and have them duke it out with each other.

 

Looking back a few years, I think I wasted a little too much time with this thing. I was also one of those people who wanted to create his own video games, but didn’t wanna go through the process of learning how to do it. I ended up “starting” a bunch of projects, looking into what I had to do to make it a reality, then procrastinated until I finally lost interest altogether. I did this a lot as a kid. Probably why I don’t have a nine to five right now.

 

Interesting in checking this game out? I may end up using it as an analogy  for entrepreneurship of some sort, later on in an up coming blog post.  For now, you can read an article I wrote on the 2 things keeping Mugen from being a truely great video game.

Protect kids from fireworks, and the importance of timing.

Protect Your Children from Fireworks Accidents During July 4th

6/16/2011
-July 4th is a time for food, family, friends and fireworks. The 4 F’s are grand when combined into one glorious day. fireworks in particular are an awe-inspiring sight to behold. But they are also a very dangerous thing, that no one should take likely.
Timing…July was how many months ago?

Fire(works), Kill it with Fire(works)!

I like fireworks. I think deep down, even people who wish to neuter the whole 4th of July celebration tradition, love them as well.

Safety is cool. Protect your friends and family from getting hurt. But that doesn’t mean we should promote the crappy stuff that sucks, and call that fireworks.

Speaking of crap, Who came up with the idea of ash snakes? How much hate do you need in your heart to think that people would want a snake made out of ashes?

Better question: How much of a cheap ass do you have to be, to think buying your kids a stupid box of stupid ash snakes would be just as good as buying that cool bottle rocket firework that shoots high up in the air, and explodes with all bright colors and a cool popping sound? How much do you hate your children?

Wanna know how to keep your kids from putting you in an old folks home? Read 5 Surefire Ways of Ruining a 4th of July Party,  and avoid buying the crap mentioned in my article.

Rock and Roll is Dead.

Rap fans are really just trolls when you step back and think about it. Hip Hop is dead? Gimmie a break. You’re just copying the rock fans with statements like that.

 

Did you know that while you may get older, and wish the music stays the same, it’ll always go through changes no matter how much you push back? That’s evolution. It happens in art all the time. That’s why there are so many sub-genres in music. It’s like a living organism.

 

Of course you think today’s music is shit, when compared to the 90s. Heck man, you have people who feel that way bout the 90s when compared to the 80s. It’s nothing new. The problem is, some hip hop fans don’t get this process at all. You’re kids musical tastes are SUPPOSED to sound questionable to you. You can’t relate, because your whole focus is on another level at this point in your life.

 

That’s why the Lady Gaga’s of the world exist. She’s this generations Marilyn Manson, mixed with Madonna and Cher.

 

Rap Fans: get off your high horse, and appreciate shit more.

 

Now that’s outta the way, I wrote an article last year cronicaling the best Rap and Rock albums from the first half of 2011. While there are representatives from the “real hip hop” side of the dinner table, there’s also some new school cats who impressed me as well. I always laugh at people who shit on music they don’t understand. It obviously wasn’t made for you, so you aren’t supposed to understand it. What’s the issue?
