About The Lack of Posts

I got a pretty killer Halloween Hello Kitty, because I'm a sucker for the things.
So, looking at my page views and such, I realize that I actually have a readership now. Which is pretty cool! But I also realize I haven't been posting much, so I'll clear the air and then start posting more. Cool? Cool.

My life has been relatively chaotic lately, to be pretty honest. Being a junior in college kind of sucks in general, what with the scrambling to get credits I need, trying to think about what I want to with my life, stuff like that. It's pretty hectic already, and on top of that, there's been some other turbulence going on.

For starters. my motivation to write has gone in the toilet. Blogging, fiction, reviewing... whatever kind of writing it is, I haven't been able to make myself do it. There's a reason I'm telling you this now, because I think the worst of it has passed. I'm ready to start posting regularly again, as well as working on my fiction and other stuff. Granted, my fiction writing gets less attention paid to it than this, which is fine, because I like doing both. So, take this post as a sign that I'm going to start writing more.

But why have I lacked motivation? The fact of the matter is, aside from being in college and all, is that my living situation has been hell up until the last week. For the sake of privacy and to not be a total dick (the temptation is there, ) I won't get into specifics. But I will say that I've had one of the absolute worst roommate situations I could hope to have, and quite frankly it, it really fucked me up, grade-wise and motivation-wise. I basically turned into a lump who sat around and played video games, then bitched to his girlfriend about it. It was pretty sad.

Dramatic Reenactment.
I won't go into details about why it was so awful, or what exactly they did (again, I really don't want to be a dick or immature or anything like that,) but rest assured, it was fucking terrible. The good news? I finally got the guts to speak my mind and get out of the situation, and am now living by myself. It can be a little lonely sometimes, but it also gives me space to do whatever I want or need to without much interruption. So, I might give a third shot at video-making, or do a podcast, or start a website or... or something. I dunno.

The whole gist of this? I'm back. I'll be posting more reviews, columns, stuff like that. I really appreciate anybody who reads this blog and comes back to it regularly to check for updates. If you're one of those people, you give me motivation to keep going with this. And I appreciate you so, so much. Look forward to more stuff in the coming days! I've been gaming and have some stuff to say about it all...

Some of the stuff I wanna write about... also The Evil Within.

Yellow Snow: "Frozen" and the Cult of Elsanna

Anybody who's read my top picks for the best movies of last year knows that I have very strong feelings about Frozen, a frankly epic masterpiece of animated cinema, if not cinema in general. It rights a lot of wrongs that Disney films have historically perpetrated, from featuring two female characters that aren't defined by men, to sending an ultimately positive message to both children and adults. If you haven't seen it, I encourage you to stop reading this and go shell out your money for a ticket. Hell, maybe even two, as I've already seen the damn thing three times, and will probably see it once or twice more for the fuck of it. It's okay, I can wait.
But on a serious note, a disturbing trend has been occurring, as brought to my attention by a wonderful yet disheartening news post on Nerve. It's become quite popular, it seems, to pair up the two main sisters, two of the strongest female protagonists in recent films, and put them together in an incestuous le…

Fried Take - "Sadako 3D 2" (2013)

The Ring franchise is easily one of my favorites out there, and its terrifying antagonist Sadako is a movie monster that I just can't help but love. Even being a fan of the series and its lore, though, couldn't make me forgive some egregious mistakes made my 2012's Sadako 3D. It was a clunky, gimmicky and all-around uninspired mess of a movie that broke canon and turned into pure schlock halfway through, despite a strong concept and some solid acting. So it would make sense, then, that I didn't have much hope for the sequel, which changed up the screenwriters but kept the same continuity and director, and seemed to focus more on grandiose scares than the low-key chills of older entries.

Being a huge fan, though, I felt obligated to at least give this one a try. Maybe it could wash the bad taste of forced 3D gimmicks and moronic sub-plots out. Or perhaps it would further ruin this once-great franchise, and be a moronic waste of my time. Read on to find out my thoughts …

My Top 12 Games of 2017

This year has been peak video gaming, right? Like, it's crazy how good everything got all of a sudden. This generation went from middling to one of the best in recent memory in the span of twelve months, at least to me. Sure, that's not to say the industry hasn't been up to its usual garbage, arguably more so than usual - to the point where games might get taken to court again. Crazy.

Anyway. I've found my tastes changing a lot this year, especially after I quit professional games writing for the time being, and I've been reevaluating what "good" or "bad" games are to me. That's partially what inspired my recent list of personal all-time greats. With that in mind, take this list as a representation of my newfound tastes, and a harbinger of what you'll see me talking about going forward.

Let's kick things off with some honorable mentions.
