I enjoy getting anon hate. I assume most of it is from people browsing tags and not from actual followers. As you guys are cool enough where if you had beef, you would tell me, right?
Justice League sucks, Teen Titans sucks, DC comics isn’t putting out much that I enjoy.
Borderlands 2 was a game with lots of frustration involving the Second Wind mechanic and enjoy AI that sometimes randomly disenganges and sprints off, denying the ability to second wind. It also features some areas with really shitty loot tables.
Doctor Who isn’t too great under Moffet, but I cried during “Angels Take Manhattan” even though the whole premise for the season doesn’t exactly make sense wth time travel and such. How did people forget about the Doctor but he still did everything he did? And you can’t unwrite books, which he does for the season plot of “Doctor Who?” but says can’t be done for ep 5 plot.
Big Bang Theory is a show that isn’t funny to me, the jokes feel awkward and the format is trite, I am sure the actors are all great people, but it feels fake as fuck.
Ayn Rand was a terrible person who created an ideology that is anti-human. In fact, the entire right-wing seems to have a serious hate on for humanity. Why are you guys so obsessed with vaginas? it’s creepy.
Warhammer 40k is pretty dumb. It’s a joke. A fun joke but remember to giggle at the grimdark.
Magic: The gathering is a ripoff, quit blowing your money on cards that are valuable because they are “good” and realize that a good game wouldn’t have “better” cards than others. And then to you players of Magic, turning around and saying videogames are overpriced? fuck you.
Xbox sucks, Steam sucks, PS3 sucks, WiiU rules (just kidding). The game industry seem to be in a weird state where consoles are still pretty fucking expensive after 7 years of the 360. Seriously, the cheap Xbox at Launch was $300, now it’s $200, that shit is crazy. Next year we get new consoles? Who is going up upgrade? And will game companies be able to make games at full quality and make enough money? How many AAA games can come out on NextXbox? Will it all be mobile games where at least the budgets are smaller and less risky? I’m pretty sure it’s fucked. And don’t think things won’t be tough on PC as well, it will be, even as PC returns to prominence.
I’m annoyed by people who consider the movie-verse to be the Real Avengers verse. Yeah, it was a sweet movie, but to me it’s just an adaptation. Please read the comics, maybe Avengers Assemble, it was made for you guys, it will give you your Avengers fix without having to wait for another movie, and comic books themselves aren’t too hard to get into, the torrents are out there, don’t try and start at “the beginning” as the beautiful thing is, there is no beginning, there is no end. There is the now. The vast majority of books are pretty easy to hop into.. except Iron Man.. that book is pretty dense, you may need to read a bit of Backstory. Captain America is easy to hop into. Hawkeye just started and is easy to get into. Daredevil is easy to hop in at any point and enjoy. Wolverine and the X-men as well. Batgirl is friendly to new readers, as is Action Comics, if you are confused by Action Comics.. everyone is. Detective Comics just started a new arc, it’s Batman, get on it. Batman is new reader friendly as well.
But it doesn’t really matter. As the comic shops are generally pretty terrible places, dingy and poorly laid out in a way to make people not want to spend money. I love my Local Comic Shop, but they are pretty exceptional in that regard.
What else can I throw down on. Hmm, Instagram is dumb, but people who spend time complaining about it are even dumber, it’s a fucking app, it’s amusing to use and the filters help convey an implied mood that is hard for non experts to do with poor phone cameras and skills with said cameras in poor environmental conditions.
Foursquare is the same category, yeah, it’s silly and dumb to let the world know where I am. It’s also dumb to wear that fedora with that.. everything, but hey, free country. I like it sometimes, because I’m where for achievement points. It’s also great for letting you know that your life is a sad routine when you become mayor of a taco bell. Foursquare can be a force for good by causing users to change up their regular routines and try new things, that isn’t bad.
Twitter is dumb, 140 characters is arbitrary at this point and based in the history of the services start as a way of posting from cellphones to the internet. Did anyone else ever text Twitter messages back in the day? I did, but it wasn’t that great because you had no way of viewing on phones, and tags were tough to remember and @people as well. It’s better now, still wish I could go over 140 at times, but then again.. I like being able to skim my twitter feed FAST. I also try and use it to talk about STUFF instead of ME, I talk about ME on facebook.
Iphones are pretty dumb. I still would love to trade my Droid in for an Iphone5. Because it has less bullshit, but it has less freedom. But it’s got a much nicer UI and better games.. but I can run unapproved apps on Android and can do what I want with it. It’s a tough balance to strike with smartphones between Freedom and Control. the best smartphone depends on the user.
I hate Wal-mart for it’s destruction of small town America, but I still shop there for the prices. I hate that the company is hard to the right and wants to lower corporate taxes and for the rich while many of it’s employees are getting support from the government because their jobs don’t pay them a livable wage. I’m part of the problem, I don’t actually know what a good solution is.
I hate OkCupid, I can’t help but go on once a day and be too shy to message a pretty girl because I know she won’t respond, but maybe she will, if I send the right message. But do I want a girlfriend? What do I want from that girl on there? Do I just want sex? do I want love, do I want to be not alone? Yes, I want them all, but it depends on the day. Do I think I am good enough? Yeah, I’m the best you will ever have honey. No, I’m the fucking worst, I’m a loser. I don’t know.
Is this going on for too long? Damn right it is. Am I pouring my heart out? I’m not sure. I haven’t talked about social justice, normality, my future, my past, my desire to be internet famous and rich but also I don’t actually want to be famous. I don’t know what I want.
