I wonder if Hannibal has actually eaten a knuckle sandwich….

So obviously knuckles don’t have meat…

Gangam Style is at 995 million views. Guys, the Mayans didn’t predict the end of the world on December 21, 2012, they predicted Gangam Style reaching a billion views on YouTube.

UPDATE: The Mayans were right!

My #newtoWHO Story [telly]

So, there’s been a campaign in the Whoniverse (yes I call it the Whoniverse, get over it!) where Doctor Who fans recount their first experiences with Doctor Who. At first, I wasn’t going to do a #newtowho story because I felt it was quite silly, but I’ve finally succumb, so here’s the epic tale of how I became addicted to crack Doctor Who.

Dat E3 [vidya]

No, there’s still no part 2 of the Digimon Adventure review. Why? Officially because of E3, unofficially, I’m a little stuck. Anyways, I don’t want to make a big ol’ deal out of E3, but I want to share my thoughts on the whole thing.

Men in Black 3 Review: An Exercise in Restoring the Status Quo [film]

So I saw Men in Black 3 today and I have both good and bad news. The good news is that it’s not nearly as bad as MiB2; the bad news is that it’s still not that good, which is sad because it had the potential to be a lot better than it actually was. It’s not a bad movie by any means, it just feels a bit like a wasted opportunity to do something better. It’s a good watch and I’d recommend it if you don’t want to watch The Avengers for the umpteenth time. Also, anyone wondering why this isn’t a Digimon Adventure Part 2 review, it’s coming, so hold your ponies!)

Digimon Adventure Season Review Part 1: Of Champions and Devimon [telly]

So for the past two weeks, I’ve been going through the entire season of Digimon Adventure, the first season of Digimon. Why? Mostly as required reading for a Digimon RP that I’m in right now (click the link to check it out or check out the story version here. I wrote the seventh chapter which has yet to be posted) and party for nostalgic purposes, as I watched Adventure every day after school when I was a kid. I’m starting on Tamers at the moment, but I wanted to look back and review the season to see if it holds up as well as I remember.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Awkward Transition to Comics [telly/comic]

Seriously, you guys don’t have any idea how long I’ve waited to write an article on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which happens to be my favorite TV show of all time. For those who don’t know, Buffy was a supernatural TV show about a teenage girl who was chosen to be a vampire Slayer. It was created by Joss Whedon and ran for 7 seasons from 1997-2003. There’s also a movie, but it sucked so bad that Joss Whedon did some retcon when he made the show to effectively cancel out the film. Also, since 2007, Buffy Season 8 and 9 comics have been released. These comics are the focus of tonight’s segment. You see, I absolutely adore Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the comics are great, however, I feel that something got lost in the transition between mediums.

Retcon: A Retro Review of Super Metroid [vidya]

Hello denizens of the interwebs, I am proud to present the very first installment of my new OoA (not Oracle of Ages!) segment Retcon: Retro Video Game Reviews. Since this is the first Retcon, I’m going to map out the general gist of things. I’m not going to give any of these games number or letter or star scores because opinions are more complicated than numbers and letters and don’t even get me started on stars. Pretty much, before I start writing the review, I’m going to play the game, in this case Super Metroid, again and write down my thoughts on things like controls, level design, music, and overall fun. So, see ya’ll in about five hours once I’m done with Super Metroid.
