1. A person or thing that adapts.
2. A connector for joining parts, components, or devices having different sized together to enable them to work. Examples include plug adapters that allows plugs to plug into outlets with different shapes and AC adapters that allow an AC plug to push into a DC outlet.
3. An accessory that allows a machine, part, tool etc. be put to modified use.
4. Computers. a. An expansion card.
b. An external device that allows a device to connect to other devices.
EX. With the announcement of a Gamecube Controller Adapter for the Wii-U, the release of Mario Kart 8 (a fantastic game), and Smash Bros this Winter, we just gotta hope that Nintendo has some big announcements at E3 to win back the hard core and can finally communicate why people want a Wii-U to everyone else.
Wii-U is the party system with exclusives that have no equal on any other system.
The Wii-U might be getting back on track to being a successful system...

Choose Your Own Adventure [chooz-yoor-ohn-ad-vench-er]
1. Literature. A series of children's books with the stories told in second-person and the reader taking on the role of the protagonist. The book is sectioned so that the protagonist makes choices that correspond to further sections of the book that determine their story's outcome.
2. Any sort of media that allows the audience to decide the outcome by making choices.
EX. Ukinjoe used to animated cartoons called Frumplequest about a conquistador named Frumplequest and his companion Dust traveling the high seas in search for adventure, treasure, and comidia de tragedia.
Luckily, Ukinjoe has chosen to continue the series with a new Choose Your Own Adventure series of videos about Frumplequest searching for treasure on Gumpy (sp?) island.
If you like Ukinojoe, enjoy the nostalgia of point and click adventures like King's Quest, or just like comic violence, check it out.

I'm totes on board with picking up Mario Kart 8 on Friday. As with any Mario Kart game, friendships will never be the same after your friend hits you blue turtle shell right before you get 1st place or when you fall off the same stretch of road eight times or when you get hit by a chain chomp or some other bull crap like I dunno an effing lightning bolt?!
What was I talk about?!
THE ONION: SHOULD OBAMA BLOW THE SILVER HORN THE FOUNDING FATHERS LEFT IN CASE THE COUNTRY EVER NEEDED THEM?
I think that headline says it all.
And my last lazy bit of commentary comes in the form of me saying something I've been saying a lot lately:
On one hand, I need to watch anime again.
On the other hand, I have no clue where to start, short of Attack on Titan and Kill La Kill, because there is so much silly garbage out there.
I watched an anime called Squid Girl a few weeks back. The puns...

1. Japanese. A film term, literally "giant strange beast", that is used to described monsters of Godzilla's size and their films.
EX. A lot of people are giving the King of Daikaiju a lot of harassment over his weight, but you know what? Godzilla will always be beautiful to me! Stop the fat-shaming! Godzilla is a strong, independent harbinger of destruction and doesn't need no fashion magazine to tell him he is too big to climb the Chrysler building! Those curves are what allow Godzilla to be the kaiju we need to "return the balance"! You go you magnificent thunder-thighed thunder lizard!
As for a short review on the film after some rumination: The atmosphere and build up to the monster fighting in the latest Godzilla film, products of a talented director, work the audience into a frenzy so that, by the last and glorious twenty or so minutes of glorious special effects, they forget they just spent a whole hour watching the kid from Kick Ass stumble from convenient set-piece to trite set-piece while they were teased by giant monsters on the news after the film ripped away the only human character we were really invested in. 4/5.
(Take in to consideration this rating is based on the fact that I was going to see a Godzilla film and my expectations of the film.)

Super Mario Sunshine isn't a bad game (just check out this review). In fact, it is a good game. It is just a mediocre Mario game.
Put down your pitchforks and torches millennial Nintendo fans; I still own it and might play it again some day. But I'd much rather play the simpler but superior Super Mario 64 or the worlds better Super Mario Galaxy 1 or 2 or my new favorite obsession Super Mario 3D World. If that is a crime, I'll go down for it. Probably do some community service on a tropical island of awful potato people by cleaning graffiti. Sounds like every kids dream.
On the subject of good Mario games, I'm definitely picking up Mario Kart 8 on the Wii-U! Not only is it gonna be a great game to play with my friends, but it has great value. Nintendo Club is giving away free codes for digital copies of New Super Mario Bros. Wii-U, Pikmin 3, Windwaker HD, or Wii-U Party to anyone who registers their copy of Mario Kart 8 between May 30th and July 31st.
That is a killer deal.
P.S. Seriously, try the Wii-U. It is the only console I've used lately.
Dunkey's new Album just hit the digital streets (for $10 (or more) or free) and I gotta say that his rhymes always put me in the mood to play League of Legends (currently, still my go to video game) because he pumps me up, cracks me up, and like a good gank, sets me up!
P.S. If I keep getting in shape, I'd like to try Rule 63 cosplay of Vi. Maybe some day.
Little Mermaid parodies will never get old.
That's all I really gotta say about this one, sorry. Move along folks. There is nothing else to see here except for the closing .gif.
