It occurred to me that I've not mentioned this before, but did you know my brother and I (and sometimes a third person) regularly yammer about video games and record it, then post it on the internet where any asshole can listen to it?

Because we do! And you can listen to it too, because I've linked it in this post. CAUTION: We tend to swear a lot, because swearing a lot is what cool adults do.

I am sorry for chomping your flavor, +Keegan Lannon, but in fairness mine is newer.

Oh hey +Keegan Lannon , weren't we just discussing this the other night? http://www.theverge.com/2014/2/25/5431382/the-internet-is-fucked
Here’s a simple truth: the internet has radically changed the world. Over the course of the past 20 years, the idea of networking all the world’s computers has gone from a research science pipe...

Okay so maybe I got a tiny little bit too into the whole fighting game thing.

It failed to make me super-good at fighting games immediately--I spent a couple hours last night getting run by all comers in MKX. Still, it's pretty fucking cool.

Oh shiiiiiiiiit it's finally happening.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES - Official Trailer (2014) [HD]

 Initial thoughts:

A white dude is Shredder? Whaaaaat?
Those turts are not the worst looking turts! They are okay!
TCRI! They used the right company name!
They are still totally calling it Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! That's nice.
Donatello and Raph's little snow adventure looks... very Michael Bay-ish, but whatever. Donatello totally yells "Batter up," which is dumb but in a good way.
So is April their sister, technically, since this seems to be implying her dad was involved in creating them? IS APRIL'S DAD GOING TO WIND UP BEING SPLINTER?

Damn I have a lot of questions.

+Keegan Lannon , we are seeing this opening night. I will be cosplaying as Donatello.

A couple thoughts:
1) This is a Michael Bay movie, correct, because that man loves him some helicopter shots. That is his wheelhouse for establishing shots.

2) This whole movie stinks of Michael Bay-ness. Which might not be bad for a big stupid movie about mutant turtles which shoudn't take itself too seriously (see first Transformers movie).

3) RE: Snow Adventure. Aren't turtles cold-blooded? Wouldn't they be very logy in the snow?

4) It looks...good? Am I setting myself up for disappointment here? Granted, the whole April ONeill story looks...odd at best. But who knows. Maybe it makes tot.....sorry. I couldn't finish that. Of course it's going to be stupidly convoluted. Reference? See: Transformers 2-4/5/6/etc.

Still though...

I hopped back on Ficly earlier because I was bored. I'd forgotten how satisfying crafting tiny chunks of narrative and forgetting about them forever could be.
