Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
This is pure Darwinism at work.
So...The Watchmen. The movie just arrived a few days ago here, so I didn't have the chance until yesterday to go and see it. Here are a few of my thoughts(this will be filled with spoilers, so those not familiar with the novel or the movie, need not read further. Yes, I actually say when my blog will have spoilers in it, unlike some people).
I knew I wouldn't be utterly disappointed when I went to watch the movie. It was a bit action oriented, which is understandable I suppose, so that didn't irk me. All in all, I must say I enjoyed the movie. Was it perfect? Of course not, there were quite a few errors in it, but was it an enjoyable and pretty damn faithful cross to the silver screen? Yes. Yes it was.
Those of you who know me, all two of you, know that I am incredibly lazy. I just am, and it probably genetic due to being one half from Dalmatia, people who are the laziest sort here in Croatia. But we are charming and good people so we are forgiven.
So basically, the university work is still where I left it off some odd five years ago. I am on my last year with exams still left from my first year which is a nice enough loophole I suppose, Emp still nags with making me do constant reviews even when I really don't have anything to contribute(The One Must fall review for instance since I really don't think a game, any game deserves a 10. On the other hand, many-MANY games deserve a 1).
Well, what can I say. I am pretty content with what is my highest ranking so far in a tourney. While I can't say I scored bad in the previous ones, where most of my reviews were in the top 12, this is the first time that I am in the top three.
And the strangest thing of them all is that, as I said to Emp before sending the finished piece to him for editing, I told him that this was probably the review I was least satisfied with in terms of quality.
So that leads me to question some things. Perhaps I should write reviews until I am not at all satisfied to them. Who knows, maybe I win a Pulitzer price that way one day.
So, another tourney ended. Individually I must say I am quite pleased with how my entry scored, altough as a team we could have, should have and one day will score higher and usurp the throne of those capitalistic swines.
I could blame a lot of factors. Perhaps the judges which were most certainly bribed. Perhaps karma? I will not blame those that participated with me. At the very least not Wolf Queen or Turducken. Last Hero is a whole new story though. I blame him for everything. Of course, one of the reasons I single him out is he is probably one of those two people that actually visit this wonderful place.
Ahhh well, it is time I suppose for a new entry after many months had passed by. What happened during this time, one might ask? Many things, but I sincerely doubt that anyone is even remotely interested. Probably the only thing that matters to the world itself is that in two days one of the most prominent figures in the world will be celebrating his twenty three winters in this world.
Ahhh, the sun and the beach. My summer vacation was quite a long one, spanning well over a month of time, so it came to me as a surprise when I was given an opportunity for 10 more days to soak up the ray of suns, an opportunity I gladly took.
The thing was that I had to take care on my own of our apartment complex(a little money making project that the cosa nostra took up a few years ago and it turned into quite a pleasing financial experience for yours truly) since the parent units could not spare any more time to take care of it.
