Doctor She?

“How could they [BBC] let us down like this? How could they fail us so? How could they destroy our hearts and souls? How could they destroy the best TV show ever?! How could they get a filthy female to be the doctor? Well, you know, I am not going to watch it anymore! No I’m not! I’m not!” Well, I say, GOOD! Sod off! We don’t need you and your fanboy bullshit clogging up the universe. For Christ sake, we are in the 21st century you bloody goombas! We have to move with the times, and move on. I wonder if you plebs would have complained if the new doctor was black or Asian? If the doctor was in […]

A tale full of sound and fury told by a nerd signifying meaning: (Or how fanboys have hijacked my identity)

When I was growing up, when you entered the mean streets of high school you inevitably knew that you would fall prey to the categorization process. Nobody escapes. This is where kids are mentally rounded up like cattle and corralled into the various social paddocks where you would remain for the rest of your school career. There were the Jocks, powerful and mighty. Their physical attributes enabled them to kicketh many a rear end of a student whom should dare to attempt to rise above his or her station. With muscles the size of grapefruits I can stand up and say… that I would and will never be confused for a jock. Then we had the goths, who pretty much […]

Black Friday!!!! aka, Well this planet is proper fucked!!!

I enjoy shopping as much as the average man. Well, okay, that’s a lie. I enjoy shopping a little more than the average man. BUT!!!! I only like going to the mall when the shops are quiet and I have an objective to accomplish -purchasing a new pair of shoes or buying a pizza. Nice. Quiet. Stress Free. Simple as that. So you can no doubt image how I have felt over the years watching the news report the vast legions of low IQ Americans slaughtering each other for trinkets at one of their “mega malls” on Black Friday.  (Disgusted, for those that did not know.) Now this “event” has been celebrated in the USA for many years. But, it’s […]

Pokemon Go: The Digital Addiction

 

 Is there an AA for gaming? I can’t seem to find it and I think I need to speak to someone about my addiction.  Since you’re here, maybe I’ll talk to you. You see, I have a problem. It’s a little problem. Okay I definitely have a problem of debatable size. It started on a normal day, a day like every other. It was a Friday, I think. I get home, drop my work stuff in the not-so-neat corner and proceed to greet my loving girlfriend. I get a vague murmur back instead of the usual eager hug and kiss, which leads me to investigate. Upon entry into my kitchen I see her hunched over her phone, swearing as she […]

AN INTROVERT’S GUIDE TO INDUSTRIAL MUSIC

You know,I’m sitting here in my room reflecting exactly how I became so involved in the industrial music scene when my first outing to a show was in Philadelphia this past weekend. I saw Youth Code with opening acts Void Vision and Psychic Teens and it was wonderful. But, that’s getting off subject. The topic at hand is: How did Steve get involved in the industrial scene? I’m an introvert. At least I would like to call myself that without sounding like another internet user who self-diagnoses their self. But, no, I enjoy eating out, going to the local movie store at the mall, but that’s about it. When it comes to bigger crowds, carnivals, or anything dealing with a […]

When Metal Gear Solid’s AI plays by the same rules

Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game for a lot of different reasons, but when the AI of the enemy was affected by the same conditions and rules I was during general gameplay without it being scripted or a cut-scene, that was when I realised just how incredible this title really was. You might wonder what I am on about, so let me tell you a story. Admittedly a recorded video would have worked better but I didn’t have recording software running when this happened so I decided to recollect the events in short story format. I did dramatize it slightly for affect but that just makes the read better. It all started while Snake […]

The title character will be portrayed by fan favourite actor, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) who will be joined by an all-star cast including Tilda […]

Star Wars Character Introductions: Feels the same

*This is not a review!* The Star wars franchise means many things to many people. To most fans, it might be the epitome of sci-fi space opera, while equally symbolising how the vision of a movie’s creator can clash with what the fans have come to expect and enjoy about his creation and in so doing alienate them from it. After having seen “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens”, I came out thinking about how it differed and also how similar it was to the other movies in the series. I’m referring to the way that they chose to frame this movie, this introduction to a whole new trilogy and how it was like “The Phantom Menace” and the […]
