I learned last night that I gotta really clean house again when it comes to the company I keep. I spent last night surrounded by some douchebags and now my best friend can't hang till he gets vaccinated cause his parents don't trust him to play it safe when I drag him into one large clusterfuck with a bunch of people, most of whom have made my life harder in all honesty.

So yeah, time to sort out the few real friends I got from the toxic waste dump that is the rest. It has to happen .

A long long time ago, I had to stop hanging out with a good friend of mine as he was my coke dealer and I wanted to stop doing coke. Sometimes you have to make these changes to move forward. They are not always easy. But hopefully they serve their purpose.

Imagine being shocked that greed, corruption, and abuse of power is being used in politics.
Ethics and morality are for the weak and spineless, and leads to a doomed failure in any industry.
The media is a tool used by the two big political parties to fund propaganda, and the people who consume it are the sheep being used to fuel the continuing partisan divide.
Time for compromise is over, time to end the reign of corrupt politicians on all sides of politics and their crony capitalist bourgeoisie buddies through force.

On that same page as the lady cat that was screaming for help, there was another that was jumping off the window to the fire fighters below. I guess that sticked with me.

I like your profile picture. :3

Thanks! She's Lynne, the main female protagonist (alongside Sissel, the game's main protagonist and player character) from Ghost Trick, a really underrated DS game that I'm currently playing through right now. It has the same writer as the same 4 AA games (Shu Takumi) and it really shows. It has some of the best quality - animation, graphics, and writing - that I've ever seen out of a DS game, and that's a lot coming from someone who grew up on it. The animations are smooth as butter. They were made from rendering everything in 3D first and then transferring those to 2D, and it really shows. They're eye candy.

Image


The game's about being a person who recently died and having to save the lives of others (including, so far, a Pomeranian and Lynne twice), and solving the mystery of your own death before nightfall. You get from area to area by traveling through phone lines, and you can manipulate the environment around you by performing - you guessed it - "Ghost Tricks" like strumming a guitar or turning on a television.

If the DS is a Crayola pack, then Takumi (and the rest of the team!) painted the Sistine Chapel with this game.

Edit: (Oh, hey! This was my 4000th post in General! Yay! Bring out the party streamers and balloons!)
