On Doctor Who.
I was recently asked to review Doctor Who. There’s a couple of things I have to say about that. Firstly, I appreciate the challenge, really. And I have, in fact, seen the entire 9th-10th Doctor seasons along with the first season of the 11th Doctor. Honestly, it’s quite a bit to watch, it’s also quite good, however a proper review would have to be taken by-season. It’s...

First off, I’m a fan of Spider-Man. The whole nerdy kid gets super powers and becomes confident and self-reliant as a tale of coming into adulthood etc etc., speaks to everyone at some point of your life or another. He is, if not my favorite, one of my top 3 super heroes. And before I begin I’m going to say that this is my opinion, I don’t know what you’re experience is...
So originally I put up my tumblr to rant and philosophize, and maybe even post some poetry or photography, but it turns out my life is busy and full of strange turns. I’ve decided to give some thought to becoming a reviewer, but base myself entirely on my interests groups. For now I’ll give it a try. Though I watch anime, I’ll avoid it, since it’s the crowd’s a...
Cartoon Review: Ultimate Spider-Man
I’ll be honest, I approached Ultimate Spider-man with a bit of a bias. Taking into consideration the insanity of the Ultimate Marvel universe and previous Spider-man tv series. Turns out it’s great! No, seriously. Okay, I’ll start by taking a look at the art style, plot, fight-scenes and overall experience. The first thing I notice when I look at Spider-man is the color,...

The Blades of Trinity - Epilogue - Heroes
Shadowbane - The blade of light, a flawless greatsword made entirely out of translucent glass shone with an inner warmth and radiance like that of Dannan, the sun, himself. The hilt, crafted out of a metal that was light and indestructible, but beautiful as polished platinum boasted an design that was elegant and intricate with lines of gold around the handle. It was placed high atop the tallest...

The mortals were uninteresting, they were all the same and simply stood in worship and awe at their creators. Dagda, drained of the task, took form of the moon, to ever watch over the mortals, but she slept as her power waned. Dannan saw her endeavor and watched over them as the sun. The other pantheos could not stand for such generic creatures so they created beasts and gave the mortals...

I’m happy to announce development of a new board game. More details, maybe even pictures later. What kind of board games/board game elements do you like?
The Blades of Trinity - Part 2 - Genesis
The evil that stood before Dannan had broken the wall. The void was no longer infinite, at the edge stood a precipice that spiraled endlessly into madness. The closer one stood and the longer one stared into it the more broken and disturbed one became. It was pure anarchy, chaos. Dannan imbibed the soul of his fallen brother, fearing that creature to return, to keep the madness from spreading....
The Blades of Trinity - Part 1 - Origin of the...
Dannan and Dagda play eternally in the sky, chasing each other for eternity. The sun, lightbringer and creator, Dannan. And the moon, the nightmantle and watcher of the realm of dreams, Dagda. Millenia ago, there existed the elders, fewer in number than the pantheos, but much more cunning and devious. They sought after the happiness and peace that the pantheos enjoyed. The pantheos, you see, were...

Time to talk about, well stuff.
I don’t particularly seem myself as a very good person. Sure I’m nice and I try to treat everyone the same, which gains me some respect from those who thinking that nobody respects them. But I’m not really, at least not purposefully, treating them specially. Kids tend to like me because of this, they want to be treated like everyone else. But honestly, I don’t like kids,...

Imagination is more important than knowledge.– Albert Einstein
It occurs to me that not many people like me. It has been bothering me less over the years until just recently I realized that I cared a little too much. As it turns out I’m a very grateful person.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Plato: For the greater good.
Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.
Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained.
Hippocrates: Because of an excess of light pink gooey stuff in its pancreas.
Jacques Derrida: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD!
Thomas de Torquemada: Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.
Timothy Leary: Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.
Douglas Adams: Forty-two.
Nietzsche: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.
Oliver North: National Security was at stake.
B.F. Skinner: Because the external influences which had pervaded its sensorium from birth had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own free will.
Carl Jung: The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross roads at this historical juncture, and therefore synchronicitously brought such occurrences into being.
Jean-Paul Sartre: In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.
Ludwig Wittgenstein: The possibility of "crossing" was encoded into the objects "chicken" and "road", and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.
Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
Aristotle: To actualize its potential.
Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.
Howard Cosell: It may very well have been one of the most astonishing events to grace the annals of history. An historic, unprecedented avian biped with the temerity to attempt such an herculean achievement formerly relegated to homo sapien pedestrians is truly a remarkable occurence.
Salvador Dali: The Fish.
Darwin: It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.
Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.
Epicurus: For fun.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.
Johann von Goethe: The eternal hen-principle made it do it.
Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.
Werner Heisenberg: We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was moving very fast.
David Hume: Out of custom and habit.
Jack Nicholson: 'Cause it [censored] wanted to. That's the [censored] reason.
Pyrrho the Skeptic: What road?
Ronald Reagan: I forget.
John Sununu: The Air Force was only too happy to provide the transportation, so quite understandably the chicken availed himself of the opportunity.
The Sphinx: You tell me.
Mr. T.: If you saw me coming you'd cross the road too!
Henry David Thoreau: To live deliberately ... and suck all the marrow out of life.
Mark Twain: The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.
Molly Yard: It was a hen!
Zeno of Elea: To prove it could never reach the other side.
Chaucer: So priketh hem nature in hir corages.
Wordsworth: To wander lonely as a cloud.
The Godfather: I didn't want its mother to see it like that.
Keats: Philosophy will clip a chicken's wings.
Blake: To see heaven in a wild fowl.
Dr. Johnson: Sir, had you known the Chicken for as long as I have, you would not so readily enquire, but feel rather the Need to resist such a public Display of your own lamentable and incorrigible Ignorance.
Mrs. Thatcher: This chicken's not for turning.
Supreme Soviet: There has never been a chicken in this photograph.
Oscar Wilde: Why, indeed? One's social engagements whilst in town ought never expose one to such barbarous inconvenience - although, perhaps, if one must cross a road, one may do far worse than to cross it as the chicken in question.
Kafka: Hardly the most urgent enquiry to make of a low-grade insurance clerk who woke up that morning as a hen.
Swift: It is, of course, inevitable that such a loathsome, filth-ridden and degraded creature as Man should assume to question the actions of one in all respects his superior.
Macbeth: To have turned back were as tedious as to go o'er.
Whitehead: Clearly, having fallen victim to the fallacy of misplaced concreteness.
Freud: An die andere Seite zu kommen. (Much laughter.)
Hamlet: That is not the question.
Donne: It crosseth for thee.
Pope: It was mimicking my Lord Hervey.
Constable: To get a better view.
Yeats: She was following the Faeries that sang to her to come away with them from the dull, bucolic comfort of the farmyard to the waters and the wild.
Shelley: 'Tis a metaphor for the pursuits of man: though 'twas deemed an extraordinary occurrence at the time, still it brought little to bear on the great scheme of time and history, and was ultimately fruitless and forgotten.
Tolkien: Chickens are respectable folk, and well thought of. They never go on any adventures or do anything unexpected. One fine spring day, as the chicken wandered contentedly around the farmyard, clucking and pecking and enjoying herself immensely, there appeared a Wizard and thirteen Dwarves who were in need of a chicken to share in their adventure. Reluctantly she joined their party, and with them crossed the road into the great Unknown, muttering about how rude the Dwarves were to take her away on such short notice, without even giving her time to brush her feathers or fetch her hat.

therootofthetruth-deactivated20 asked: Wow, that was a very eloquent reply. It was about a paragraph but it was drenched in value. Thank you! Did you study philosophy? I need to familiarize myself with more philosophers, because the only exposure i get to philosophy is through observation and drawing up my own mental conclusions.
therootofthetruth-deactivated20 asked: it's pretty interesting, the comment you made on the mind > matter post. I think it's mind over matter in the sense that your mind has the power over a situation... nothing is too difficult for the mind to exercise its power over.

Game Review- "Ace Combat: Assault Horizon"
I will begin with saying that if you’re an Ace Combat fan, you shouldn’t put money down on this game unless you’re also a masochist. That aside, the game has great art direction and the immersion factor is never lost throughout the entirety of the story. It’s great aesthetically and brings some interesting mechanics to life that make it fun and exciting to play. The...
Excerpts from My essays...
The darkness being represented as non-existence is adequate in my opinion. Same as with the light being the ultimate source of organization, it is perfectly logical to take both of these into account when coming up with the “cave” as a projection of one’s life. However there is a breakdown between what is exiting the “cave” and coming back into it. If the cave is supposed to represent one’s life...
