LONG BLOG

C-Blog recaps of 4/13/13 + 4/14/13 + Skategasms

So I found an old deck in my garage today. Thought it'd be cool to just cruise around, maybe ollie once or twice. Once I rolled around a bit and got the old familiar feeling back and felt my gravity was cool enough, I started popping shove-its, hitting some little grinds and trying to kickflip for the first time in about 6 years. It was good times, I was having fun and feeling young again. Skateboarding always drew me in because my anger just left my body, once I was on my board. Still does. While I'm not as angry as I used to be, I still hold a lot in my heart. But this morning I felt great. Wind in my hair, feet moving, board flipping below them. That feeling of doing something you're good at. Man it was great.



Then I was reminded why I don't do this anymore. It's not the pain either. I'm a fucking tank. Don't get me wrong, it hurts. God it hurts. But now, I have a dog to walk, chores, kids to take of and work to go to. I can barely fucking walk. It's not just the knees. Came down hard on my wrist and my ankle got twisted too. I am a dumbass. But I am a dumbass who had a bunch of fun. Oh well. That's life. Enjoy some awesome music vids, while I clean the blood off my floors.

First, enjoy this Macklemore video. Best non 80s, 80s song, EVER!


Then check out C2C, awesome turntable group


That knee pic isn't actually mine, my phone is just a dick and won't upload right now. My left knee is pretty fucking trashed and bloody.But my right one is about the same as the photo.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
