Cblogs of 07/12/11 + Calgary Stampedisms!

   0


Dag yo! So, Iím tired since Iíve been partying it up at the Calgary Stampede! It started out with Will and Kate making an appearance at the parade on Friday, then the show kicked off and Iíve shown my buddy around on the Sunday, then on Monday night I went to go see the super awesome and super pretty LIGHTS in concert on the grounds, and Iíll be going probably at least another 2 Ė 3 times the rest of this week! Itís a wee bit tiring! Still, seeing all the ladies in their cowgirl outfits (or the summer outfits in general . . . ;-D) makes it really all worth it! ^_^ Hahaha!

Also, Iíll probably be booking my flight to Seattle for PAX tomorrow, plus Iím going to be having an ďAsian-offĒ against LawofThermalPoopmatics, since itís on like Donkey Kong! =P

Yet one more thing, I get to do something Iíve always wanted to do, and itís damn near incredible. In a couple weeks, Iíll be going to Seattle (yeah . . . again, hahaha) to see my beloved MANCHESTER UNITED play . . . in person . . . against the Seattle Sounders at QWEST Field! I am excited like none other! GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED! =D

Enjoy a picture of LIGHTS wearing a White Calgary Stampede Cowgirl Hat! ^_^

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.
