61% through this game, and it is destroying me emotionally.
It just hurts. Have to keep going though. I need to know what happens to these guys.
I’m back on the blog with a post about the upcoming Korra soundtrack.
Mike has a great post about the storytelling aspect of Jeremy’s scores on his WordPress blog… I believe the young people say “after the jump,” or something. I say, “click that View Post thing.”
Dreams in Blue
Each year these blossoming blue fields attract thousands of tourists. Hitachi Park is located in the Ibaraki Prefecture on Honsyu in Japan. Its a beautiful spectacle during the flowering of the nemophila. Nemophilas are annual flowers. The word is a combination of the Greek words “nemos” (small forest) and “phileo” (love). The Japanese word “hitachi” translates to dawn. Taken together: “small forest love in dawn.” A blue heaven on Earth.
For any guy that responds to women’s objectification in any media (yes, this video pertains to video games specifically, but it still applies to all other forms of media.) with “well men are objectified too!”, sit the fuck down and watch.
Can I just say that I love that engineer-looking character that popped up? Because I really do and want to know what she’s from.
She’s from Borderlands 2
Finally, an acknowledgement of objectification vs idealization.

You go out there, you be a badass, be awesome, and do all of the excellent shit they said you couldn’t, and if any fucktruck dares to get in your way, you punch them in their stupid face.”]

You are super great and if people get down on you for not being perfect all the time then bite their faces off. You are super great and faces are high in protein. Super great.”]
