I’ll edit it later.

Yeah, teachers with tenure are fun.

Braveheart.

A touching movie about honor, revenge, nationalism, and the militaristic application of slapping your exposed your ass. This movie is the fictionalized tale of William Wallace and the aspects of his life that in relation to his roll in the struggles between Scotland and England in the 13th century. In it William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson), following the murder of his wife, leads a peasant revolt against English intrusion that quickly turns into a full revolt that exposes and undermines the Scottish nobility for their complacent acceptance of their people’s abuse by the English. This ultimately results in William Wallace being betrayed by the leaders of his own nation and killed. At least in theory, what the movie actually contains is a lot of really cool simulated murder, implied rape, and far too much overacting by the film’s lead actor / director. It was really cool when it came out for all of it’s action and visuals, but now it’s just kind of sad after looking at it in the light of crazy Mel’s antics aver the years and seeing how much of the films intricate story was blotted out by his ego.

Gundam fan fiction thing stuff that is.

The observation port holes flared suddenly as both escorting Gaiyas class mobile suits broke formation and spun about rocking the shuttle violently as the thruster backlash washed across the hull. Ambient lighting snapped from cool blue to bleaching red, and the intercom screeched feedback as the shuttle’s captain opened his microphone without waiting for the delay circuit to kick in.

“Seal your god damned pressure suits NOW! I’m breaching the cabin pressure in five.”

“Things must be really bad for him to loose his composure that fast.” Virginia Prospect thought to herself as her hand flew instinctively to the green back lit “pressurize” button on her suit’s wrist. Her suit was already sealed, and had been for the last five hours, but the threat of death by decompression triggered her to hit it again. Seconds later everything loose in the cabin was violently thrashed about as the shuttle’s ECSS ( Emergency Combat Status System ) purged all atmosphere in an emergency decompression. The ECSS was designed to prevent an explosive decompression during combat, but Virginia didn’t feel at all grateful towards the committee that developed it as she smashed her shins on the seat in front of her.

I really should have apriceated the teachers I had, since this was for full credit.

The Phantom Menace

(I refuse to refer to this “film” as anything other than it’s subtitle)

This film is about a 14 year old Democratically elected Queen, who falls in love with a 9 year old race car driver, and it’s probably one of the worst move ever. While there have been other movies that have outdone this one in badness; none of them had even a fraction of this films budget. There is some other mindless drivel about political intrigue, the conflict between original inhabitants vs. current inhabitants, a derogatory presentation on monopolies oppressing free trade (although the provided example acts more like a Union than a Monopoly), and mass produced technology’s assault on organic naturalism … but it’s all just as nonsensical as the core premiss of giving a pair of juveniles control of an entire planetary government and/or the keys to a rocket car. Outside of the basic incompetence of George Lucas and his take on the age of competency and mature decision making, all the other listed elements fail even the most basic of Logic tests.

Why F2P doesn’t suck … it blows. (and how!)

Literally … I will be explaining the subtle connotation between the two in regards to the “Free to Play” format, and how it functions.

The term “sucks” is represented as a negative connotation from a clearly heterosexual male point of view. Whenever someone says “that sucks” they are likening it to the mental prospect of getting on your knees and sliding a penis in and out of your mouth, repeatedly. As a hetero-male, I honestly can relate to that concept being a rather unappealing one, but ya know it aint all that bad to be on the receiving end. Clearly this concept of “lube’n the love pole” being a bad thing is not a universally applicable one; otherwise there really wouldn’t be any need for the statement “this sucks” in the first place (because no one would be giving head to began with). I can think of at least two demographics where if you were to loudly proclaim “playing that game was like slobbing knob” in a crowded room full of said demographic, their reaction would not be what was intended.
