Ariel is a racist?

ariel_by_the_fountain_by_alisakiss-d5h4s94Cosplayer Alisa Norris, aka Alisa Kiss, was alongside her husband Jonathan Nortis, at the white nationalists protest at Charlottesville, VA. When this was discovered, she tried to make light of the incident until it was discovered that there was, in fact, video of her with her husband chanting “Jews will not replace us”. For more information, as well as the video, please check out this article from Bleedingcool.com: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/08/18/supergirl-cosplayer-went-charlottesville-guess-whose-side/

jasmineThis is a woman who once cosplayed as Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, Lum from the anime Urusei Yatsura, and the gay Japanese character Sailor Neptune from Sailor Moon.  Seriously… what the hell happened to her? Was this the way she has always felt, and these cosplays were just ‘ironic?’ Was it when Alisa Farrington met her husband Johnathan Nortis?

Who knows. I just… *sigh*

This sucks.

 

antinaziThere is an anti online bullying website I became aware of, where they thought that through an emoji they could respond to people and say “Hey, I see you, and that is not okay.” I personally do not believe that that is something that will work. However, I do believe that in this day where people fly flags that our father’s and grandfather’s fought against, it is our duty to stand up and say “Hey, I see you, and that is not okay.” Because of this, I changed my icon to a cool simple image that I came across.
 
What if everyone started doing that? This is not the 1940’s, nor is it the 1860’s. We must understand that these symbols of the past represent certain things to the modern man, and they are not good things.
 
If you want to preserve your supposed white Anglo European heritage, than perhaps it should be preserved in… you know, a museum?
 
Let me put it this way: Flying the Confederate flag is like if people who had descended from all of the Tories, Royalists, and King’s Men wanted to fly British flags and explained that it was about heritage and being proud of where they had come from… you would think that was pretty fucked up because AMERICA, am I right? Exact same situation.
 
And the Nazi flag? You are directly spitting into the eyes of both of my deceased grandfathers who fought for this country to prevent the spread of those ideals, as well as whomever was close to your family who either fought or worked hard to keep this country so great.

My fears were realized yesterday

USmapOn February 28th, I jokingly said that in Trump’s America that I had some fears, and joked that because of my very Irish name but Hispanic background I could be deported due to suspicion of being illegal.

On July 31st, The Houston Chronicle published an article called U.S. citizens forced to fight deportation. In it, The chronicle explains that ‘Hundreds targeted each year despite documents, claims, court data show.’ According to attorney Eric Puente in this article, “there’s no due process and no hearing to address whether they had a real claim to citizenship or not.” In the past six years, 1,714 Americans have been deported despite being either born in The United States, and/or having their legal documentation with them proving their citizenship.

So, this isn’t a Trump’s America problem, but an Obama’s America problem as well, as he was pretty thorough in his deportation practices.I just find it crazy that what seemed like a paranoid fear was already happening.

SAD!

Why I care not that Zendaya is or isn’t Mary Jane

zendaya-golden-globes-11jan16-03Zendaya is a character named Michelle, and later explains that her friends call her “MJ.” I don’t care that this is an alternate version of Mary Jane Watson, or not. MJ was a character from Peter’s ADULT life. Peter Parker met her in COLLEGE. Gwen Stacey as well. SONY wants Peter in High School for all of his movies, so I’m fine with the lack of a proper Mary Jane Watson. Zendaya is not her, and even if she was supposed to replace her, ultimately she isn’t her.

Upside down kisses, wet dresses or shirts clinging to her body, we had that MJ in Sam Rami’s trilogy. Having even an adult actor play a child and having moments like that… that’s awkward and distracting and honestly, I do not want that in this series of Spider-Man movies.

spiderman-homecomingTom Holland was in Civil War, has Homecoming, 2 more MCU Spider-Man movies, and he’s in the 2 Avengers movies coming up. Even if he gets contractually added to a couple more movies, there isn’t really time to make this Spider-Man have the build up for some of the smaller characters that the original comics had. If it did, MJ would have been hinted in the second movie by Aunt May or her Aunt Anna during graduation, the third movie would have eventually revealed her after Gwen Stacey had died at some point… *sigh* It’s better this way…

… Unless Sony plays ball, the contract is extended for 3 or 4 more Spider-Man movies and hey… maybe we will get a Mary Jane Watson that isn’t refereed to as MJ, or is and Parker thinks it’s a weird coincidence that she has a similar name to Zendaya’s character. Or hey, maybe Peter falls for someone else, who knows!

Frank West is Back!

FrankWestIn Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Dead Rising’s first protagonist Frank West is back, and his original voice actor T.J Rotolo will be voicing him instead of the recent Dead Rising 4’s voice actor Ty Olsson. Rotolo played Frank West in the previous Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds as well as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. It should be noted that Peter von Gomm played Frank West in 2008’s Wii game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite will be out on September 19th, 2017.

 

What to do once you are bored with LTTP?

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past is an amazing game for the Super Nintendo, and it’s being re-released in September on the SNES classic mini thing that almost no one will actually be able to buy. Well… what do you do once you do beat that phenomenal game? Well, thankfully there are some options, some of which can be done on a Super Nintendo even.

1.) Just dicking around – Exploring and testing scenarios is always fun. There are glitches and easter eggs, and then there is The Magic Powder that can turn things into other things, and not too long ago I discovered something on youtube and I had to do it myself:

Beat The Game Fast – There is a glitch that lets you jump off of a wall after first saving Zelda, save and quitting the game, getting hit, and then walking through walls. You can navigate yourself upwards and easily discover where the triforce is in under 12 minutes easily.

Explore What Happens After Beating The Game Fast!

Explore The World Withing Walls! Using the previously mentioned glitch, you will notice that every single Dungeon is on the same map, and that you can do some pretty wild things that aren’t obtaining the triforce. Like getting out of Hyrule Castle, using Hyrule Castle’s Big Key for anything that needs a big key, etc. Also, you can obtain Quake crazy early just randomly. Exploring and seeing what you can do where is fun.

Play Capcom’s GBA Port – It also has some new features, Link has voice clips, and if you connect with friends using the GBA link cable, you get to play the new Zelda 4 swords adventure. Yes… this is largely still just LTTP with a different aspect ratio. What’s wrong with that?

34381-Legend_of_Zelda,_The_-_A_Link_to_the_Past_(USA)_[Hack_by_Euclid+SePH_v1.0]_(~Legend_of_Zelda,_The_-_Parallel_Worlds)-4Play a Different Game: Hacking a game is time consuming and very different, especially if it is a major graphical overhaul as well with a completely different map. The Legend of Zelda – Parallel Worlds is just that, and if you purchase it on a cartridge, which you should never do, the creator gets no money at all, just the scammer who ‘repro-ed’ it. It’s actually sickening. Seriously, you are not one upping a major company, but are in fact screwing over a fellow fan as well as an indie game developer. All that being said… this hack is quite hard so you may not want to spend $40 on it unless you are using something that does save states.

The_Legend_of_Zelda_Ancient_Stone_TabletsThe Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets – This game is nuts. To explain it, I feel like I have to explain things like that the Super Famicom had a satellite add on from St. Giga, and… okay. So this game is a rom hack of what was made from St. Giga, and it runs on a timer… and you do not play as Link but the boy or girl mascot from St. Giga, and this is set in the canonical time when Link was off doing stuff in the Game Boy game. Random stuff is happening all of the time. This isn’t LTTP as you know it, and that is an amazingly awesome if crazy thing. I wish Nintendo would re-make it.

Replay The Game with CD Quality Audio and Cutscenes – WHAT IS THIS?! I have no idea. This looks and sounds awesome, but I think Nintendo copyright claimed the creators of it… so you might not actually be able to do this… easily… right now.

Item Randomizer – Late last year, a team made a tool that allowed you to randomize all of the items in a rom of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past. They made sure that the game is still completely beatable too.

Co-operative speed running – This one is strange and just came out due to someone modding the SNES9x emulator to allow memory sharing between certain things such as dungeons and key items. Weird stuff happened, and it was enjoyable seeing these people test this hack out.

And there you go! The Legend of Zelda is such a great game, and hopefully the above things can help you enjoy this game even more.

I quit Youtube?

I had grown weary months back when I was doing videos covering fighting games last February. I stopped doing those videos, but I still occasionally posted a few videos. One video I made but never posted suggested that I just… wasn’t feeling it anymore with fighters and games in general. That video is below:

I later put most of my videos to private, and a lot of them are still kept private. Why? Because I’m a fat piece of s*it according to quite a few people who have watched my videos yet never made even one of their own. This got me… also, a lot of the videos that I like to make are sadly just not do-able on youtube, such as Nintendo related videos and Blind reacts to trailers, and I was never going to make any money off of it… so it seemed like I should just hang in the towel.

For some reason, I made two more videos, and I dunno… maybe I’m not quite as done as I thought I was?
