WORD OF THE DAY! 11/14/14!

pitched battle [pitcht-bat-uhl]
1. A battle in which the orderly arrangement of armed forces and the location have been predetermined.
2. An encounter in which the antagonists are completely and intensely engaged:
EX. Are you guys ready for the pitched battle over the box office this Christmas season? Wait. What do you mean that the outcome is predetermined because it is third installment of a trilogy of blockbuster films? Oh. Right.

Anywho, I'm gonna go see this movie. And might even cry.

WORD OF THE DAY! 11/13/14!

farmer in the dell [farm-er-in-tha-del]
1. A game, accompanied by a song with several verses, in which one person, designated as the farmer, occupies the center of a circle of persons and is joined in the circle by other players designated as wife, child, nurse, cat, rat, and cheese, these then leaving the circle in order except for the one designated as cheese, who is left standing alone in the circle at the end.

EX. People were bored in the past. Then they invented the internet. 

Check out Bee and Puppy Cat.

Krillin was my favorite Dragon Ball Z character as a kid. I mean, I wanted to be Gohan up until the point that he became Saiyaman, but I always had a fondness for Goku's best friend, side kick, and comedy relief, Krillin.

In a show with battles between super villainous monsters and usually the uber innocent and pure Goku, Krillin, while arguably the most powerful human alive, was also human. Krillin was a brave Z-Warrior but he was capable of fear (often having to hide from stronger opponents), love (falling in love with Android 18), and anger (he wanted to finish off an injured Vegeta after he and Nappa directly led to the death of not only most of his friends but hundreds, if not thousands, of people but Goku stopped him).

Krillin may often be the butt of jokes in the nostalgic memeverse but he will always be a great character in my book.

Speaking of nostalgia, it was revealed that Disney/Pixar are making a Toy Story for a 2017 cinema release and, to my pride, most people are confused, upset, and even angry with the audacity of continuing the franchise with a direct sequel.

Each Toy Story film upped the ante from the simply tale of identity and friendship of the first film, dealing with love and loss in the tolerable second film, and the issues of abandonment and death in the heartbreaking third film. After the third film, in which the toys bond over their acceptance of their fate and the inevitability of their purpose/lives eventually ending, what is left to explore in the incredibly dark world of sentient toys?

Seriously Pixar, I thought you guys made art first and franchises second. Then again, Cars. Cars 2. Planes. Planes: Fire and Rescue. Inevitably, Cars 3: Carpoacalypse.


The Onion is on fire lately. This interview confirms everything that I imagined about the allusive figure behind everything from the holocaust to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

I need to find some food.

WORD OF THE DAY! 11/11/14!

overwatch [oh-ver-watch]
1. Military. In modern warfare, it is the state of one small unit or military vehicle supporting another unit, while they are executing fire and movement tactics. Such as a supporting unit taking a position where it can observe the terrain ahead, especially likely enemy positions.

EX. When I heard "overwatch", I thought of Crackdown.

Instead, we finally got the newest Blizzard franchise in almost two decades and Overwatch is special; a highly stylized class FPS in the vein of TF2 but with much more of an emphasis on mobility, special abilities, and, rather than a stable of basic classes, a variety of characters for players to probably unlock and fall in love with-- so sort of a MOBA approach.

The trailers, posted above, are definitely exciting.

It has a cyborg gorilla with glasses. I'm at least gonna download it.

Dunkey's lyrics come in three flavors:

Trash Talk: "You guys are drinking Dr. Pepper. I'm drinking Mountain Dew. My name is Jason Gastrow. Who the f*** are you?"

Earned Frustration:  "Every other day there's fans that say I'm getting crappy
How the fuck am I supposed to keep a million people happy?"

Ri-donk-ulousness: "I'm knocking cats out left and right like it's Tom and Jerry
We might as well call this map Summoner's Cemetery."

And it wouldn't be my personal gaming playerlist without a lot of Dunkey.

Ukinojoe's girlfriend made this. It is cute. I like it.

Bowser is gonna be top tier in Smash Bros 4. I'm just calling it. I've been playing him a lot on 3DS and he finally has the speed and the moves to be a powerhouse. It is crazy. His dashing smash is just so awesome. He just dropkicks people off the map!

Even though Sion needs some work-- his Q is slow, his W doesn't give him enough health or shield, and his passive is pretty unreliable-- but they just need to tweak him a bit.

He is a lot of fun to play and very satisfying when he works.
