So, last week, I talked about my friend making a badass Bowser glass piece. That same friend has asked me into the studio tonight to help him out with his next project: the 3 main characters of AAAAH! Real Monsters. Holy shit am I excited! Also, this week, our school has had an old-world (read: Italian born-and-raised) glass "maestro" come in and make glass while people observes. The guy's name is Elio Quarisa, and he makes some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. Check this out:

Yeah, he's been in the shop all week, making stuff like this, and, for some reason, humming "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" all the time. I fucking love this dude.

Speaking of old guys, today's blog contains some old dude's birthday, on top of other things, like the first ever Fail and Top blog by the same user in the same day, and lost of The Lost and The Damned talk.

FUCK YES! Though my guitar broke (=[), I was happy I was finally able to play this on Rock Band today:

S-Wow, Kyvon08 found the only instance of a Gamestop employee who isn’t an inconsiderate moron.

B-Some old guy (y0j1mb0) talks about how some other old guy (SantanaClause89) got older today. Those ancient fuckers.

N-Since I know not the loving touch of PC gaming, this means little to me, but probably excites some of you: the Source mod Black Mesa is gonna be out by the end of the year.

V-Mega64 spoofing Elite Beat Agents. Like the costumes and dancing, but the music makes me want to shove a flaming screwdriver in my ear.

R-A pretty cool text-and-video review of the new SF4 Fightpad.

F-...are you serious, dude? Do your own work.

F-I don’t understand why you didn’t direct this to the forums…

F-What, pray tell, was the point of this shortblog?

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.
