Just heard about the suspected arson attack at Kyoto Animation. I really and truly can’t put into words just how messed up and heartbreaking it is. My heart goes out to the victims and their families, and the talented artists whose work was destroyed.

 
 
 

Right! It’s #ArbitraryMetalTuesday! Here, have the calm and soothing sounds of Anaal Nathrakh. Harsh industrial meets black metal meets grindcore with some surprisingly (comparatively) clean choruses is considered calm and soothing, right? Riiiiiiight?



 
 
 

For no reason, have some Mongolian folk metal. Throat singing works surprisingly well in metal.



 
 
 

Well, I went out and got myself a new iPad. So that’s exciting!


 
 
 

For as much as I adore mechanical watches, I pretty much swear by my Apple Watch these days. I picked up a nice leather band for it, too. It's just more practical for me, since it does a hell of a lot more. #WatchToid


 
 
 

Saw Spider-Man: Far From Home. It was a hell of a lot of fun, and Jake Gyllenhaal made for a great Mysterio. It was very much a transitional film for the overall MCU, but it's still enjoyable on its own. Also, the mid-credits scene was sheer perfection.

 
 
 

Oh my gods, Bloodstained is a remorseless addiction machine. I’ve been struggling to put my Switch down ever since I got the game. The port’s a little rough around the edges, but I’m nonetheless enjoying the hell out of it.

 
 
 
 

I rewatched Batman & Robin for the first time in a while last night. It's not a good movie, but it's kind of a guilty pleasure film for me. There's something oddly enjoyable about its ridiculousness, and Mr. Freeze remains thoroughly entertaining.

 
 
 

Well. Ran into a database error on my PS4, and had to reformat the drive/reinstall the OS. One issue: I only pay for PS+ when I'm actively going to use it. So I had no cloud backups for my saves. That... that fucking sucks. Kinda pissed.

 
 
 

Replaying Super Mario Odyssey. It's one of those titles that reinforces my love of gaming. It controls so smoothly, has so many things to discover, and its sense of personality often makes me smile. I feel like we'll be talking about it decades from now.

 
 
 
 

It may not be #ArbitraryMetalTuesday, but fuck it. Have some Ningen Isu. Because this band is all kinds of delightful. Just some good old school heavy/doom metal. That, and just look at them go! Metal is kind of fabulous sometimes.



 
 
 

Well, I beat Cadence of Hyrule. That was a damn fine game. More than anything, it feels like a solid traditional 2D Zelda game with a kickass soundtrack that just happens to have NecroDancer's control scheme, and I'm very much okay with that.

 
 
 

I picked up a thing while I was out today <3~ Pretty stoked to check it out. Though it's kind of sad to think that this may just be the final new game I'll ever pick up for the 3DS. It's been a good run.


 
 
 

I can only hope that Bethesda brings back Magnus for this year's E3. I mean, look at him! He is a creature of pure metal and probably also lightning. He can conjure circle pits with just a glance. Truly, he is a god.


 
 
 

Just saw the new Godzilla movie. It was exactly the film that I hoped it’d be. So much glorious monster carnage. Just so much. It’s big, and it’s dumb, and that’s okay. It’s just a damn fine kaiju movie.

 
 
 
 
 

#PetToid, huh? Well, here's one of my cats. I'll post more cute animals in the comments <3~


 
 
 

Oh my gods. Saw Eluveitie tonight. They were so, so good.


 
 
 

Well. It's Tuesday, and I feel like arbitrarily posting some Celtic folk metal. I guess you could call it #ArbitraryMetalTuesday <3~ Seeing this band on Friday, and I'm pretty fucking excited. Wanted to see them for a little over a decade now.



 
 
 

Saw Detective Pikachu last night. I’ll agree that the plot is predictable, and it falls apart at the end. Where it succeeds is with its fantastic world building and loveable cast. Despite its faults, it’s an absolute delight to watch. Would recommend.

 
 
 

Well, I enabled custom firmware on my Vita. The first thing I did with it? Changed my boot message to "Hello, Smithers. You're quite good at turning me on."


 
 
 

Got myself a ticket to Devin Townsend's acoustic tour later this year! This makes me happy. So, so happy.

For people who owns a Switch: do you still play with your 3DS? If so, why? Do you play it more or less than the Switch?

I just woke up from a sex dream with Valak from The Is that weird?

I saw Avengers: Endgame The exciting parts didnt grab me as much as they did the first time (they seldom do), but I did pick up some of the more subtle That kind of made it more satisfying to watch, I think than even the first
