C Blogs of 4/9/11 and 4/10/11 + SilverDragonisms


This was a pretty crazy weekend for me. One of my best friends, who is also the Maid of Honor in my upcoming wedding, spent the most of the weekend in the hospital after getting knocked off her horse. She had major head trauma and the doctors weren't sure when or if she was going to wake up. My fiancé and I spent most of Friday in the hospital with her parents, hoping and waiting for her to wake up. Luckily she did eventually come to, but she couldn't remember the last 16 hours of her life, including all the crazy stuff she did during those hours. She is going to be ok though, and we are all really grateful for that.

I spent the rest of the weekend drinking, thanks to a beer festival I went to. I also started tanning for my upcoming wedding in the US Virgin Islands. The tanning girl put me in the tanning bed for too long though, and now I'm pretty badly burnt. I'm in a great deal of pain, but I'll live. I'd rather burn now, then get sun burn the day before my wedding.

Speaking of .... there's only 2 weeks left till I get married. CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

The heel-turn

Last week, in the quick posts of Destructoid's community, we saw the rise and fall of community manager Wesley J. Russow. He rose to prominence with his immutable power, only to see it come crashing down as the working class clambered beneath him and tore him down. Truly, the life and times of Westopher G. Raggamuffins was a lesson in live fast, burn hot, crash spectacularly.

Wes went from community darling to lovable despot over the course of a few days. It was a thing of beauty to behold. Truly, nothing is better to witness than a real-life heel turn. Wrestling is nothing without these terms after all. A "Face" is a good guy wrestler who fights the man, stands up for the little guy, and fights fairly while still winning. A "Heel", on the other hand, is a despicable, dastardly villain or even anti-hero. I loved Kurt Angle's antics as this gold medal Olympic winner turned wrestler who wasn't necessarily as likable as his gold medals imply. I loved hating that guy! A good heel is fun to hate, and there's nothing quite like the gasp of shock when watching the turn, when a face uses dirty tricks and turns into a heel.

Let me ask you this: is Kratos a hero? Before we see Kratos return in what I'd call Dad of War, let's not forget Kratos’ sordid past as a hero. In the first game, it was a revenge tale. It was a story of a mythical Spartan warrior who wanted revenge on the God of War who betrayed him. But as the series went on, it became a story about the lengths Kratos would go to justify his vendetta against people who wronged him. He would literally destroy the world just to destroy his enemies. Sure, we played as him, and we were taken on a ride, but would you really put your bet behind him and say, "Yeah, look at that hero!"

This month's Bloggers Wanted is about your favorite heel-turns or anti-heroes (in case a heel turn is too specific). Do you like it when Ryu turns into Evil Ryu? Or maybe you like Injustice, with its built in heel-turn Superman? I won't claim to understand the time line of Revolver Ocelot between Snake Eater and Guns of the Patriots, but I love that knucklehead.

To participate, just start a blog in our community section and title it "Heel-turn: [your blog title here]." Write to your heart's content, and if its up to snuff, you'll see your stuff published on the front page! Just remember, you're telling us about your favorite heel-turns and anti-heroes, not becoming one yourself, like Wes. Rest in spaghetti, never forghetti.
