WORD OF THE DAY! 12/19/14!

fury [fyoor-ee]
1. Unrestrained or violent anger, rage, passion, etc.
2. Violence; ferocity; brutality.
3. Classical mythology. (furies) The daughters of Gaea who punished crimes at the instigation of victims, known to the greek as Erinyes and the romans as Furiae.

"She should have died hereafter.
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

-William Shakespeare's Macbeth

WORD OF THE DAY! 12/18/14! (LoL)

poro ball [pohr-oh-bawl]
1. A poro projectile thrown as part of the summoner spell "poro toss" to deal damage, slow, and apply an effect that allows the thrower to zoom over to the hit target for a short period of time.

EX. I love poros! But I also love poro ball!

(As some have taken to calling the new "Legend of the Poro King" game mode).

Last year, we all celebrated, with childish glee, the Snowdown Showdown mode (I as much as everyone with several articles) and this year Riot pulls out the stops with a new game mode set on Howling Abyss where your summoner spells are replaced by Poro Toss, which allows you to toss poro balls, and To the King, which allows you to pull yourself to the Poro King. What's that? Who's the Poro King?

Oh, well, when your team makes ten contacts with your enemy, you summon the powerful building destroying Poro King! This makes this mode a mad dash to get 10 hits first and then to protect/destroy the king, depending on who controls him, as he makes his merry march towards the enemy Nexus.

I may be biased, because I love poros, but this is a pretty fun game mode. My favorite moment has been getting a quadrakill as Vel'Koz (who is now disabled) by using Poro Toss to hit a Lee Sin, watch him kick to safety, and then pulling to him to kill him and his teammates with a well-placed face-melting ult. Stay tuned for the next couple of days for articles on the Poro ward skins/icons and the new Snowdown 2014 skins (they all include poros in some form)!

Oh Jontron. You're the cutest cartoon character ever. You don't believe me after me starting this WTF WED with some commercial for a shirt or hoodie? Well fine then. Here is some bonus content.


I know it isn't really Christmas themed but, if you look at the title, I somehow manage to tie it all together, wrap it, and put a bow on it this year. Or I worked with what I got and gave you what I could give you. Why're you so ungrateful this year? Sorry.


And lastly, our two favorite surreal buddies from Nick: The Feature Film.

There is Nick and there is Chris. Apparently, when Chris isn't busy reviewing restaurants in the totally not fictional town of Titanville, Florida (it really is real, but I like casting aspersion), he is busy throwing on a wig so he could bother Nick.

Everyone will suffer for this.

Kwanza. Just Kwanza.

WORD OF THE DAY! 12/16/14!

menagerie [men-aj-uh-ree]
1.  A collection of wild or unusual animals, especially for exhibition.
2. A place where a collection of wild or unusual animals, especially for exhibition, are kept.
3. A collection.
4. A group of people.

EX. Imagine a world...

...where two adult colleagues discuss Noah's Ark, the biblical story usually introduced to children at a young age, and one of the two poorly animated colleagues positing,

"What if, the entire point of having Noah build the ark and collect a menagerie of animals is so that God can make them race each other?"

and the other colleague, in an equally monotone and strange manner, laughs at his theological theory and basically calls him an idiot.

Then, God transforms them and their other colleagues into animals. They race.

That is the plot of Zoo Race. You can buy it.

Before I head back to work, been rotating between work, sleep, and social obligations, I wanted to make sure I got this article out the digital door and out to you guys. At least Egoraptor and the rest of the gang (Danny Sexbang, Ninja Brian) made it easy for me this week by releasing their entire album for their fans to enjoy on youtube.

If you like it, as I do, you'll probably wanna check out their next album which hits the digital streets tomorrow!
