In Moot Member Blogs Starcraft thoughts Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #427 New September 9th, 2018 02:10 PM
So, according to PCGamer StarCraft's popularity in Korea (South Korea) is possibly on the wane. In fact I saw a vid on how the whole RTS genre is petering out, so to speak, largely because RTS games take a long time to learn, and even longer to master.

I guess my thought is, and specifically towards StarCraft, is that I'm surprised it lasted this long. I got into StarCraft during my fine year or two of going for an engineering degree, and the thing that struck me about the game is that it ...More Read More

So, I cruise YouTube a lot since I'm now living on the fringes of suburbia, and this is essentially a repeat of my dissatisfaction with previous aspects of media. So, beware.

Visual media, and the powers that be that control or make it run in the united states, is really stupid and insulting. When I was a young boy and up through my teen years I was under the impression that you couldn't lie in media (lest you got sued) and that media--visual media--was there to educate.

Media, in all ...More Read More

So, back around 2011 or so I got a job at one of the local OSH after being harassed on the job by the same Australian outfit (I think I mentioned I put the foreign minister for the Australian government / parliament on notice, and they sent me a professional reply). There I met one of the least attractive women I had ever met. Let's call her "X". I recoiled when I met her.

Normally I wouldn't post such a negative post here in my blog, but there has been another attempt to steer me towards ...More Read More

This is a place holder for links that I will post in the Gyro gun thread at some point. The discussion is pretty technical right now, and I don't want to derail it (so to speak).

Thirty plus years ago I was down at the Stanford Shopping center with the parental unit, at the B. Dalton bookstore, which was across from the old Woolworths and near I. Magnin and J. Magnin stores that used to be there. The old B. Dalton was a "two story" store of such, with the upper portion being the back of the store with a balcony that looked down on the lower half.

This is important because the science fiction section was on the second tier, and there I saw a large hardcover book that ...More Read More

I'm going to have to rethink this.

In short I'm disappointed there were NOT more adult oriented shows in the fantasy genre, and that guys like me had to mine or watch more child oriented programs to get their fix for space adventure.

I'll expand on this in another web log entry.

This is a "special" Citizens of the Imperium web log entry regarding the sociological agenda and purpose of contemporary mass media. I'll try and keep it succinct as per previous entries of this nature.

It is my contention that films are not only created to satiate fantasies to help society vent or be otherwise satisfied, but are also created with an agenda to help illuminate portions of the population into fields that may need filling within society. As a basic example we have a lot of po ...More Read More

Apparently Google is still convinced that I'm a female, as I get popups for leggings and children's toys. I wonder what my fat bald gamer self would look like in a pair of hip hugging nylon leggings with some kind of printed pattern.

"Johnny Soko and his Giant Robot" is a an action adventure series in the kaiju genre for Japanese boys (and girls).

I bring up this episode not so much to examine the characters, but to point out that there is extreme violence in the show. In the first few scenes and in the climax there're gun fights with full automatic weapons, and we see bad guys get mowed down by the scores with submachineguns.

This is typical of Japanese entertainment, and yet Japan does not suffer the same kind of ...More Read More

The 80's version of The Twilight Zone has an episode entitled "A Matter of Minutes", where we see a bunch of construction workers who actually construct all facets of every day life for every moment.

It's not so much a psychiatric technique as an allegory for a subject being followed around and having his life "reconstructed" as it were to discover the core of his malady, whatever it is.

I've actually been looking for this episode ever since I saw it way back in the mid 80s. It seemed li ...More Read More
