The Home of the Cyber Shark(s)

BBBAAAAAWWWWW is the sound they make…. that's descriptive enough, right?

Alright, I missed the last 2 weeks. Why? Well… short story: I was away. Long story involves a half blind pug and Fable 2. Thank God for DVR. I don’t know how I survived TV without it.

So, a quick recap to bring people up to speed:

Bryce is a hipster douche, he and Viktor have severe attitude problems. Olivier has an accent that makes no effing sense. Bert has a chip on his shoulder. And Lauren/a I don’t give a crap she’s Pretty Pretty Princess, is trying to make “classy not assy” a catch phrase.

Suspenders went home, which made me sad. I didn’t think his umbrella dress was that bad compared to the baby blue wee wee pad dress Bryce made.

Fallene! I didn’t have time to make a nickname for you! I’m sorry you’re gone! But in a way I am glad she went home now. If she had been passed through I think the higher pressure and intensity of the coming weeks would have totally broken her. The problem is that she and Bryce both said that she was responsible for that black swan dress. I don’t think that’s fair since Fallene totally made the only thing worth looking at there. If Bryce is in the bottom 3 this week he needs to go home.

Now, onto the gripe!

Snuggly Bear should have won with his bird seen dress. That dress was beautiful and the birdseed so crazy perfect and I loved looking at it. Nin and Mikey are huge hypocrites for decrying and sending home Suspenders for his “conventional” material in the umbrella, while giving What’s-his-hoodle a pass on an uninspired, barely altered doggy bed top that make the model look huge. It was also such a bland color palette, and the first thing I thought was that it was essentally Andre’s Moss Garden Party Dress. Only in dog and hamster. I can only assume shit was edited out because there wasn’t interesting drama at all.

Ok, new episode.

I used to be a big fan of Dilbert. I enjoyed the humor, and Catbert, and when I worked in an office the strip really worked for me. However, I find a hard time enjoying someone’s work when I see their personality and don’t like it. Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson for example. Also Kevin Kline. So now it comes down to Scott Adams, I can’t read Dilbert anymore.

A few months ago he wrote a post, since removed, saying in a nutshell that the world is unfair towards me, and that men need to suck it up and stop complaining. Short form, that doesn’t seem bad, except that in his diatribe about men’s rights and women’s right, he makes it clear his view point is that women need to be given in to, not because our demands are rational and there is still an inequality in the world between men and women, but because we are irrational, and there’s no point in fighting it.

So, here we are again, with Scott Adams seeing the men of the world as victims.

The part that interests me is that society is organized in such a way that the natural instincts of men are shameful and criminal while the natural instincts of women are mostly legal and acceptable. In other words, men are born as round pegs in a society full of square holes. Whose fault is that? Do you blame the baby who didn’t ask to be born male? Or do you blame the society that brought him into the world, all round-pegged and turgid, and said, “Here’s your square hole”?

The art world and I have a love hate relationship… well, at the best of times it’s a love-hate relationship. Actually, I think it can better be described as a “Fuck you pretentious douche bags”-“I am so awesome you just don’t understand me” relationship.

If there was one thing I learned from my art class last semester it’s that Art isn’t about content or context or talent. It’s about your ability to bull shit.

Artists take an elitist stance and elevate themselves above the masses and do stupid shit and call it “Art” because they can.

What got my dander up today?

Store Buyout.

I am not talking about Anonymous proper, just a random anonymous person.

On my formspring I received this “question”:

“Lose some weight you weaboo scum. Fat bitch.”

To which I replied:

The only thing I take exception to is being called a weaboo. Srsly. I enjoyed anime at one point in my life and sometimes watch those anime again. I’m certainly not going to glomp you at a con.

Mostly because I don’t glomp, but also because you sent this anonymously… since you’re anonymous I don’t know who to not avoid confronting in a public area.

So, Mr. Anonymous. Gain some balls. Also a face. I think having a face would actually help you get far in life.

I feel like I should just rename this blog to Spoiler Warning because I fully intend to spoil the shit out of ME2 at the moment, and I’m likely going to spoil more video games  and movies and books and… comic strips?… because I can’t keep my big mouth shut.

But, About Horizon…

…and the unrealistic options given for Shepherd to do/say.

I am not silent at all about my love of BioWare, however, Horizon has bothered me for a bit.

Here’s the set up:

In Mass Effect 1 there was a slow build up between initial attraction and falling for your chosen love interest. For me, it was Kaidan (Carth 2.0), and because of the way my mind works, I kind of fill in the blanks a game can’t possibly include. But the culmination of everything is that in Mass Effect 2, you die.

You die, you’re rebuilt, and suddenly it’s 2 years later.

2 years after being dead, you meet Kaidan (or Ashley… but for the purposes of this blog, this situation refers to a female Shepherd and Kaidan Alenko… Shenko apparently) on Horizon.
