Well, no one read my last recap section, where I asked "are there any other good TV shows running besides Lost, and Chuck?" Due to a recommendation from a friend, I picked up all of Southland, and wow: is it great. I'm bummed the first season is only 7 episodes, but the word on the street is 13 more were just ordered for Season 2. I say bring it on.

In other "not-me" news, apparently instead of jostling failblogs, Hamza has commanded that we try to leave them alone as much as possible. It's going to be really hard to resist posting Ruby Rhod memes, but I think this is a great practice (at least until Hoborg starts blogging again).

Lastly, everyone should be introduced to an amazing, budding artist that's part of this community: SuitcoatAvenger. He was nice enough to draw me the stylized avatar you see at the bottom of this post.

Oh, herro. Do you rike progressive metal from Denmark?

One hour ago, I had it all typed out: "no fail today!" Then this happened:

F-What was the point in posting this? Hoborg posts the same blog everytime, and it all boils down to some form of the comment: "the PS3 is a waste of money".
F-I sure do love the smell of first time posters and their text-linked youtube blogs with 0 commentary in the morning!

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.
