Favourite Pokemon

There’s currently 809 Pokemon currently released over all 7 existing generations and there’s probably going to be another 100 or so more when Pokemon Sword and Shield come out. While we can all agree that some Pokemon aren’t as good or as popular or as exciting as others, we all have our favourites and every Pokemon has a fan. But with sooooo many Pokemon, it’s really hard to pick a favourite. Or at least a definitive favourite. And it really depends on the person. With someone like aabicus, who wrote in length about the often ignored Rattata, your favourite ends… [Continue Reading]

On Easy Web Design

These days, it’s piss easy to get a website made. It’s in fact piss easy to make a website yourself. Without even paying any money. There is a multitude of free shit out there that does all the hard work for you, throwing a bunch of templates at your face and letting you customize the colours and all that. Most of these website builders just have pre-built templates and you enter the text and images yourself in predetermined locations. In fact, the more you look at it, the more you realise that ‘designing’ a website is in fact really easy.… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Intermission – More of This, Please

The other day, I managed to hit level 15 on the Nightwave Intermission. I had managed to do every single task so far apart from the Complete 3 Sorties task (because you can only do one Sortie a day) and had them all finished the 25th. Now that I’ve finished with the Intermission, I can idly do any extra missions to earn additional Nora Creds which I can spend on more Nitain. I got my Eidolon Ephemera and now I can chill and wait for the next Nightwave. Except that I kinda hope the next Nightwave is just like this… [Continue Reading]

My Problem With Star Wars After Episode 6

I’m not as big a nerd and fan of Star Wars as my brother is, but I won’t deny that Star Wars is a cool franchise. A weird mixture between a space opera and a space cowboy shooter film with sword fighting and magic and massive battles. There’s a little something for everyone. There’s even a princess, although I’m not quite sure Leia works as a Disney Princess yet. But while the movies are overall well-received, they do have problems. Weirdly though, most of my issues are with Episodes 7 and 8. I can’t say that they’re bad movies, because,… [Continue Reading]

Songs That Make Me Stop

I remember being told a story, years ago, about going into a shop and having everyone stop what they were doing because a song came on. Being a story from a long time ago, I don’t remember any of the details, who it was or where they were shopping or why, but I do remember the name of the album that the song was on: Everyone is Here by the Finn Brothers. What I don’t remember is what particular song it was. I think it was Edible Flowers, but here’s the thing – most of the songs on that album… [Continue Reading]

My Own Made Up Holiday

Anyone who has used Facebook has probably seen it. Posts from well-meaning people saying “Happy X Day!” with some sort of semi-related picture. This post is normally followed by a bunch of sponsored posts from some vaguely relevant companies trying to get in on the made up holiday. That X could be anything. Literally anything. Some of them make sense, like a Siblings Day. Some of them are normal holidays blown out of proportion, like Mothers Day and Fathers Day, grabbed by corporations and twisted to make us buy even more things. Okay, they’re already commercial holidays but they get… [Continue Reading]

“What Makes You Happy?”

You’d think that the question “What makes you happy?” is a simple one. An easy question to answer with a multitude of answers, most of which can’t be judged as right or wrong. Most of the time, there’s an answer at the tip of your tongue. But it’s not easy. Not as easy as one would think. There are different levels of happiness. Lots of them. The question “what makes you happy?” could be applied at several different layers. What is making me happy right now? What made me happy yesterday or will make me happy in the future? What… [Continue Reading]

WordPress WordPress WordPress

I’ve been using WordPress for what, 5 years now? More probably. In fact, I don’t really remember how I got into making sites with WordPress, it’s just what I do these days. Maybe it’s worth going down memory lane and having a look. Especially now since I need a distraction after a missing ‘#’ in some of my code has made me look like a fucking idiot. Although worryingly, as soon as I started writing, WordPress has started showing me a Connection lost error. I assume that’s just coincidence, right? Anyway, WordPress was never the first content management system (CMS)… [Continue Reading]

A Permanent Sense of Not Winning and Doing Nothing

I’ve secretly always been insanely competitive, but I’ve always hid that side by playing games where it doesn’t matter too much if you lose, or by playing games that are actually pretty easy once you get the hang of them. At the same time, I’ve also had a ton of people ask me if I want to play various battle royale games, mainly Apex and Fortnite. You’d think, what with the loose, “jump in, jump out” system that battle royale games have, I’d want to play them, right? Wrong. In a battle royale game, there is only one winner. Meaning… [Continue Reading]

A Long List of Little Things I Want In Warframe

Ages ago, I had an idea for a series of articles about things I wanted. I sat on the idea for ages though because I honestly didn’t really know how to do it. The original article was going to be about Elder Scrolls 6, with me loudly arguing about wanting the game to happen in Elswyr or Black Marsh, simply because Bethesda have already pulled off incredibly cool, alien landscapes in previous games. Then it all fell apart when TES6 was teased at E3 because clearly it wasn’t going to be set in either place. At the same time, I… [Continue Reading]
