I finally watched Promare! It didn’t quite reach the same glorious highs as Gurren Lagann, but goddamn did it get surprisingly close in a little over two hours. I had a lot of fun with it!


 
 
 

I was worried that the new Invincible cartoon wasn’t going to be willing to go to the places the comic was, but after the first episode, that is no longer an issue. It ain’t the damn near perfect translation The Boys is, but it’s still solid.


 
 
 

Hwayi: A Monster Boy is free on Amazon Prime right now. It’s from the same director as Save The Green Planet. Took him a decade to follow that classic up, but it does not disappoint. Really good shit.


 
 
 

I finished watching Devs (so freaking good!), and now I’ve got another huge, Alex Garland-shaped hole in my heart. Do y’all have any recommendations for movies or shows that might scratch a similar itch?


 
 
 

After a night of reckless financial decisions on eBay, and a couple months of waiting, I now have all five 1st print variant covers of the 1st issue of Seven to Eternity! Sending them in to CGC for grading once the shipping kit arrives!


 
 
 

I watched Father’s Day at the behest of Voodoome and Tricer, and it did not disappoint. Very wholesome film that the whole family can enjoy.


 
 
 

After watching Psycho Goreman, I decided to start looking into the director’s other movies and started with The Void (2017). It’s way darker and more serious, but still a great time for anyone into 80’s body horror stuff like From Beyond.


 
 
 

Psycho Goreman is preeeeeeeeettttyyyy daaaaaannnnnggggg good. The monster designs are rad as hell, it’s absurdly gory in a fun way, and it’s made me laugh a bunch so far. Definitely recommended.



 
 
 

After rewatching it, I take back everything bad I said about the movie Dredd. It’s cheesy, it’s dumb, and it copies a bunch of stuff from The Raid: Redemption, but it’s still good. Gamemaniac, Marzano, and Vxxy: You were right. I was wrong.

 
 
 

I’m currently rewatching Small Soldiers for the first time since I was a kid, and it surprisingly holds up pretty damn well so far!


 
 
 

This thing is freaking massive! No idea where I’m going to put it, but I’m definitely stoked to play around with it! I’ve got Demon’s Souls & Miles Morales, but do y’all have any recs for other games that are substantially better on PS5?


 
 
 

(Trailer NSFW) Following Pat’s lead... Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (the 6th and only truly “good” entry in the franchise) is legitimately one of the best action movies I’ve seen since The Raid: Redemption. It’s absurdly brutal.



 
 
 

I couldn’t get an RTX 3070 today, but I did finally manage to snag a PS5 from Gamstop!

 
 
 

I recently started using a vertical mouse, and I have to say, why (outside of higher CPI options) isn’t this already the standard form factor? It feels awkward for the 1st couple hours, but the reduced wrist strain is a game changer.


 
 
 

Do y’all think I should upgrade to an AMD or Intel CPU? I’ve heard mixed things on this. I don’t plan on doing any video editing, but I will be recording music and eventually upgrading my graphics card for games.

 
 
 

There are a number of reasons this doesn’t make any sense (look at my top games), but I think the biggest one is that I didn’t play any first person shooters on PlayStation this year.


 
 
 

Apparently, Mr. Show never got released on Blu Ray, and I ain’t paying for HBO Max, but I did still manage to snag the DVD collection on eBay for $14! Really stoked to rewatch it all for the first time in years!


 
 
 

After diddling it for around 12+ hours, I finally got that PC I bought to boot! After uninstalling/reinstalling it all piece by piece, it turns out the previous owner just installed the RTX 2060 wrong and the pins weren’t lined up.

 
 
 

I’ve got a digital code for the Watchmen HBO series if anyone wants it. First person to comment saying they’re interested gets it! Just got the blu ray, so haven’t seen it yet myself, but Marzano says it’s great!


 
 
 
 

I took the first steps to building a gaming PC! This is a parts PC I bought for a little less than $100. Not sure if I’m going to keep the rest, but I mainly scooped it for the RTX 2060 6GB. Ain’t the fanciest, but it’s a start!


 
 
 

Finally getting around to watching Blade Runner 2049. I bought it like a month ago on blu ray and hadn’t watched it yet because I was worried it would be lame. 30 minutes in, and it is extremely safe to say that is not the case.


 
 
 
 

Slimybear is a classic tsundere, for sure, and they may not be the best at typing, but they’re also just a really nice person overall, and I’m incredibly glad they joined the community. #CommunityShoutOut


 
 
 

First time ever doing anything like this, but I cracked open the casing on my laptop and installed a new internal SSD. It was nerve wracking as hell, but definitely worth it for the expanded storage and faster read/write times.

I like video games, music, comics, and corgis a whole lot. Pretty much everything I do in my free time revolves around these four things...
