  1. Some Recent Brutal Legend Fan Art

  2. I decided to go for the $3 mystery hat even though these things are always a crapshoot, and I actually got a game I wanted: Worms Armageddon. St. Patrick's Day is my birthday, so I guess I've got a little birthday luck going on this year.
  3. Just found out that John Romero posted a Commander Keen 7 tech demo video. This would have been the first episode of the third Commander Keen trilogy, The Universe is Toast. I loved Commander Keen as a kid. I really, really wish that they'd license the property out to Tom Hall to make a new game. I haven't played the Game Boy Color game, but from most reviews it doesn't seem like it was very good, and Tom Hall wasn't involved. But, even with that, it's been seventeen years since a new Commander Keen game. It's high time to bring Billy Blaze back!
  4. I'm reading through Marvel Unlimited's Iron Man comics. I like comics, but ick - I really hate the stupid rebranding crap. Every comic company does it - DC, Marvel, even IDW. I'm not talking about the reboots or the death of characters, or the cloning of characters, or the characters who take on the roles of other characters. That is super confusing, but it's just compounded by the weird stopping of series, then restarting, then stopping, and giving a new numbering system for everything, even if the stories continue. That really takes the cake. They go from Invincible Iron Man, then they brand that volume 1 and start the numbering from 1 all over again, then they go to volume 2, then do it again, then to volume 3, and do it again. Then volume 4 gets really super messy, since three of those comics are War Machine comics, but they're considered part of volume 4 of Invincible Iron Man... then when they start the numbering all over again in the next volume, after 33 they jump to 500 (it's not 503, because of those three War Machine comics). But they don't make it clean from here - they release an issue 500 and a 500.1. And they wonder why it's hard to bring in new readers to comics. o_O
  5. Sorry to hear that. Hopefully, next time you'll find someone who you're compatible with, and hopefully that happens soon. I definitely agree that adult life is hard. I'd love to go back in time and freeze my age at around 17. That way I'd have the freedom to drive an automobile, but I wouldn't have to worry about adult responsibilities. I'd take high school classes over adult responsibilities any day of the week. And to think I used to think that my high school teachers threw too much work on me, while after I finished I'd just play video games, drive around with my friends, and text my friends on AOL Instant Messenger all the time. If only I knew what was coming, I'd definitely had taken high school a lot more seriously. Going off on a bit of a tangent while I'm talking about high school, I'd have loved to have been diagnosed with ADD as a kid rather than an adult. Then I'd be able to do my homework without pulling an all nighter or doing my work in other classes on the day it was due. Especially since with the diagnosis, I'd realize why I could never stay focused enough to do the work on time. I always just thought I was a slacker. I even had a psychiatrist, but she was really no help. She did diagnose me with high functioning autism, but she didn't offer any advice or help me in any way. She just introduced me to another student, and he had issues similar to myself. I think it was basically just putting us together to kill two birds with one stone, as she basically just left us to deal with stuff on our own without offering any advice. It was pretty much the blind leading the blind. I was assigned a psychiatrist due to an incident involving kids kicking me in my injured knee and preventing me from using the bathroom. They kicked me and led me to the left of the entrance and I couldn't take it anymore and I relieved myself there, which happened to be right in front of the window to the teacher's lounge, which was tinted on the outside, so I didn't know what was there. Of course, the kids that kicked me were at the entrance away from the window, so none of the teachers saw them and of course no one would verify my story. I got in big trouble and the teachers thought I had a screw loose. In the meantime, the students who kicked me got no punishment because no one could verify that they were there. The psychiatrist and the principal, the latter of whom I had to talk to the day the incident occurred after I was called down to his office via the intercom, probably thought I was making it up. Plus, I kept not getting the letters that my psychiatrist wrote to give me my scheduled appointment date. All of the notes for teachers and students went in plastic folders that were attached to the door, so I don't know if other students took them or if my psychiatrist just gave up on me. My psychiatrist never called me down to her office on the intercom or came up to talk to me during homeroom. So I'm inclined to believe the latter was more likely, since you'd think the psychiatrist would put some extra effort in to make sure that I still saw her. I even told her that I never got her appointment schedule notes during the one time I did get a note with my appointment. That was the very last time I ever saw her. That was my freshman year in high school, and I never saw her for my second semester during my freshman year. And I never had a psychiatrist in my Sophomore, Junior or Senior years. Plus, I was never reprimanded for not going to see the psychiatrist, so I guess that shows how much the staff cared about me at that high school. So, yeah. I guess I'll amend things. I wish I could freeze my age at 17, but I'd definitely go to a different school.
  6. I keep forgetting to log into Discord. I'm not really much for constant conversation these days. I used to love IRC and chatboxes and the like, but I've had concentration issues the past couple of years. It's not that easy for me to follow multiple conversations. I prefer the slow conversations in forums.
  7. I went through my Wii download history and downloaded the games that I didn't have on the system memory. I completely forgot about the gifts from Telltale that they gave out back when they first started putting their games on Wii (the last three episodes of Tales from Monkey Island and the last episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People). It's pretty bogus that they won't let you re-download the games after 2019. It's going to require Homebrew Launcher and a wad installer to do that after Nintendo shuts down their service. I have both installed, but I'd rather not go that route. I'm not that great at backing stuff up (or keeping the backup media from not being damaged), so there's a good chance I'll have to do that in the future though. I love Nintendo's games, but their decisions in regards to anything having to do with online are terrible.

    I've been reading Virginia Woolf's stuff due to today's Google Doodle. I like what I've read so far.
  9. I've been volunteering with the Red Cross on disaster relief and programming an automated entry system for new volunteers that'll be used across upstate New York. So, I've been super busy. That's why I haven't been on here - but I needed a break. It's been super stressful, and it's relaxing coming in here and talking to y'all.
  10. Shoot, I added images to my posts on public domain day, but I didn't post anything to release into an open license. I'll go a different direction this year, and release a short story I created during NaNoWriMo 2012. I was intending to extend it at one point, but it works as it is as a short story. If anyone does want to expand it, or work from it, feel free since it's now released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 4.0 license. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It was another sunny day without a cloud in the sky. Julie Harper found it to be the perfect chance to head downtown to do some early Christmas shopping. There were shoppers all along the sidewalk, but nary a car in the street. No one could have foreseen the truck that would come barreling through the crosswalk. Pam was asleep on the seat next to her daughter's bed. It had been a tough week. When Julie first came in, the doctors weren't even sure that she would survive the night. She'd made it through, but no one was sure how long she would be comatose. It was tough looking down at her daughter's bruised face, unsure if she would ever see her beautiful smile again. "I'll take over from here, Pam. You look like you could go for some breakfast." Pam looked back at her husband, whose handsome features were overshadowed after days of very little sleep and countless hours of crying. "Is it morning already?" Pam got up and stretched. She made a weak smile as her husband came over to sit in her seat by her daughter's bed. "I should go over to my parents. I know they'd want to know how she's doing. It's probably harder for them then it is for us. Julie is their first grand daughter. She's their entire world." She could barely get the last words out as she choked up with tears. Her husband squeezed her hand gently. "It's okay honey. I'm sure Julie will be alright. I can go get your parents if you'd rather." Pam wiped her tears and looked into her husband's eyes. "No, it's OK. I could use the fresh air anyway." Julie looked around. She was in an orange room with swirling white and blue lights all around her. She felt strange, almost like she was floating. With an unsteadiness, she brought her hand up to her face. It appeared orange just like the rest of what she saw. "OK, this is weird. It's probably a result of the accident. I wonder why no one else is around." She began walking forward and ended up in the back seat of a car. She could see the hazy white figures of three people in the car with her, but she could not tell who they were. She tried to focus her eyes, but no matter how hard she tried she couldn't get her eyes to focus. As she started to talk, her vision seemed to split into two images, with one side a shade of white and the other a shade of blue. Thinking she was having double vision, she tried to focus again. Suddenly, the blue image changed. The driver slumped down into their seat and the car veered into the oncoming lane. Without warning, a tractor trailer slammed into the car and all three figures were mangled by the crash. The white image drove by the tractor trailer and pulled off onto the side of the road. The blue and white images began to blur, and then merge before finally Julie's view became normal again. She found herself in the back seat of the car again. Even though the images were still fuzzy, this time she could tell who the three images were. They were her mother and her grandparents! She became increasingly nervous knowing the fate that the car would soon have. Suddenly she found herself floating up to the front seat. She seemed to be inside the fuzzy image of her mother. With her adrenaline levels soaring, Julie was able to take control of the steering wheel just as her mother slumped in her seat. The car missed the tractor trailer, and Julie brought the car to the side of the road and to a complete stop. With that, Julie's view changed to black once more.

    I thought that the Warren Beatty Dick Tracy film was quite good as well. And if it counts (it doesn't have classic pulp characters, but it's inspired by them), The Rocketeer is one of my favorite movies of all time.
  12. I'd love to see the enhanced Slipstream from The End come into the MCU. He could transport himself and others across entire galaxies. That'd certainly come in handy during the Infinity War. But the number one character I want to see come into the MCU is She-Hulk. A Jennifer Walters Netflix (or ABC/Hulu/whatever Disney calls the Family Channel once the Marvel shows air on it) series is long overdue.

    I'm working on a sketch comedy variety show pilot right now. I started working on it in 2003 with the name "Spoof", but since that was later the name of Dana Carvey's proposed sketch comedy show, I really would feel uncomfortable using that name for my show. Especially since Dana Carvey is one of my main comedy inspirations. I started it again now because of the crappy political climate that's going on at the moment. Comedians express their frustration through their comedy, and that's definitely what I'm doing. I think I'll create it in batches, so that each skit is a video, and together they form the show. That way I can get it out for feedback while I'm creating it. I think you've done stand up comedy before, am I remembering that right? I'll post the skits up when I finish them. I'd appreciate your feedback on it (and anyone else too).
  14. I hope they get Tara Strong to play Harley Quinn. Warner Bros Animation's choice to replace Arleen Sorkin with Melissa Rauch instead of Tara Strong in Harley Quinn & Batman wasn't a good decision. Tara's not an exact duplication of the original voice, but it's really close. Melissa Rauch isn't even near to being close, and her interpretation of Harley's accent was way too thick and got annoying really quickly.
  15. I'm playing through Super Mario Odyssey now. It's awesome. It's got a little bit of every Mario game before it, and the new stuff is awesome. Taking control of enemies is so much fun, and the speed flower is neat. I hope this game gets a sequel.
