At the moment I prefer to keep art as a hobby rather than a job. As such for the time being I won't be taking commissions.

No, it's not a crappy fanfic. It's a crappy article!

This weekend I wrote an article in which I attempt to examine Princess Zelda from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as a strong female character, because apparently some people still only refer to her as a Damsel in Distress. This by referencing the Hero's Journey as proposed by Joseph Campbell in The Hero With a Thousand Faces (a book I studied through the magic of Wikipedia because my local libraries suck).

Cheers!
So since the forums of TwilightSucks have moved I had to continue the breakdown of New Moon in this new place.

The old chapters can be found here:
twilightsucks.proboards.com/in…

The continuation here:
www.twilightsucks.com/forum/ph…

I never imagined the book would be THIS bad. I mean, Twilight was bad but New Moon is just insanely bad. Bella does nothing but whine all the time. I almost screamed the 50th time the word 'numbness' was mentioned.

For anyone who might be interested, I'm posting my breakdown of New Moon on Twilightsucks

Here's the link

When I actually finish the book I'll probably write a full review but at the moment I haven't yet read enough of the book to form such an opinion (though it will most likely be bad).

Hey, I've given in to peer pressure!

Well, if you could call it that.

Quite a few people have asked me to read the sequel to Twilight and give my opinions on it, both haters as well as friends/people who want me to at least give the series another chance before writing it off as complete and utter garbage. So I picked up the cheapest copy I could find and I'm now reading New Moon with a pen to mark down everything I dislike about the book.

I can already say that the preface was riddled with thesaurus abuse and at least 2 tautologies (one of which was utterly unforgivable).

I bought Disaster: Day of Crisis last weekend and I want to talk about it, so I will. Especially since this game didn't get as much attention as it deserves.

So if you live in Europe (or Japan, meh): BUY THIS GAME (or at least give it a try).

I put the disc into my Wii Saturday afternoon and I emerged from my room Sunday afternoon having completed the game and ready to play it again. This is not a common thing for me since I've played so much games in my life a lot has to be done to get my attention. Disaster: Day of Crisis didn't only get my attention but kept it from beginning to end.

Unfortunately this game isn't out in America and it won't be if nobody pays any attention to it, even if it is as super awesome as it is. So hereby, if you have the chance to try this game. Do so!

This is the type of game of which the Wii needs more!

I can't believe how much I ignore the journal. I've made 2 journal posts in the last year :crying:

First of all, a warning
:iconvranke:
Everyone, stay clear from this person. Don't talk to him, don't listen to him and please don't look at him. For doing so might create so much lulz which will result in a temporal distortion and rip apart the fabric of the universe!
(No seriously, he's just a friend of mine who joined this site :paranoid: )

I still refrain myself from any responsibility though :fear:

So I've finally seen Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, like the entire world probably already has.

And what did I think of it? Simple, it was a great movie.

For some reason I often had the feeling I was in a pirates theme park. Especially because the movie involves a LOT of ships acting like sledgehammers (you know, those ships you always see in theme parks).

The best scene would be the epic battle between The Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl. The whole movie just revolves around this moment and it didn't let me down.

The return of Barbossa was for me the best reason to go see this movie, sure I wanted to see what happens to Jack and Davy Jones, but truly after the ending in Dead Man's Chest I was more interested in Barbossa. Though he still acts roughly the same as in Curse of the Black Pearl, it's truly a delight to see him on the good side among Keira Knightly. Until they showed Will Turner onscreen I had truly forgotten all about him just because of Barbossa.

As for the stuff I did not like *** spoilers ***
While in Davy Jones' Locker Jack Sparrow obviously went mad (even more than he already is) and so he often sees himself talking to him. This really annoyed me. At some point I also couldn't follow all the betrayal, but I guess that's quite normal with all the pirates (it had even more pirates than the prequel, take that Ninja :o). I also didn't feel much for the whole Calypso storyline that was suddenly introduced, though it was already referenced to in Dead Man's Chest.

Also the fact that 2 of my favorite characters were killed off like they were minor characters annoyed me, though it doesn't make me feel less about the movie.
