Kinda wish the States had "Amerigame" now.

Hey remember CompUSA? Or maybe that was just a Midwest thing

Hammy’s (my attic squirrel) house adventure is over. Thankfully, he did not die in the house. He actually made his way into the basement last week (not sure how, but it is a 60+ year old house). I found out about his relocation the hard way, when I discovered things knocked over; chewed up; and/or pooped on down there.
Since the majority of electrical and gas connections are in the basement, I bit the bullet and purchased an animal trap. Within 24 hours, his ass was caged. I took him for a 20 minute drive Saturday morning, and let him loose at a forest preserve.
Adios, asshole.

Elves can talk to leaves and Aragorn is part Elf.  Boom.

Man, I really should have been a lawyer.

Anyways, haps: saw a live production of My Fair Lady over the weekend.  It was actually good!  Quite good!  Very impressed with the local talent for both Henry Higgins (exceptional) and Eliza Doolittle (quite good).  However, the guy who played Colonel Pickering (a dream role of mine) did literally nothing with the role.  Basically all he did was deliver lines and not be in the way.  Couldn't even do an English accent, not even a bad one.
Still, everything else was unimpeachable, and the sets and costumes were both well beyond expectation.  They even pulled off Ascot Opening Day sequence (best part of the whole musical).
Hot Take: Lard has his posts pre-written and ready to post before he saw the movie.  What do you guys think?

Meanwhile, only Soleil got demoted to Uncommon, which is fine with me since I pulled a Shiro from the previous banner.

But it is really shitty that the next t_t (its assumed to be a t_t due to no other new units getting added with the update) 40%ers are seasonal units (I never would've sprung for that Prince Pineapple if I had known; glad I didn't bother gunning for Rhajat, who's handling is now pretty poor), especially compared to the previous t_t which had 40%ers that players might have had, including one from the Common pool.

Further meanwhile, my free pull was a 3 star Nino with a bunch of SI fodder to follow suit, so I'm back to paying for my earlier stupidity regarding the Gheb BHeB banner.

This is probably why I liked Bleach. Ichigo may be impulsive, but he's not an idiot. It was just nice to see that he actually made an effort to do well in school. Sadly, his type isn't too common. Aside from the occassional detective, shonen heroes tend to be not very smart. In fact, many are as dumb as bricks. I wonder if that's meant to make them more relatable? I know the Japanese school system can be very demanding, so maybe characters that don't do well when it comes to intellectual stuff are more relatable?
If you want a smart shonen protagonist, you should try Dr. Stone when its first volume comes out. Being smart is really that MC's primary defining feature.

Honestly the first couple of story arcs in Bleach were fine.  Pretty good, even.  It's just that after it got really popular the author started dragging everything out waaaay too long and not really going anywhere with it.
Part of the reason it got dragged down is because he made each faction way too fucking big and then refused to trim the fat in later appearances.

I'm really not a fan of the massive BSTs these new units have on top of their ridiculous power creeped skills, coming right off the weapon refining update which you'd think was intended to balance out some of the power creep that had been going on. At this rate they're going to have to introduce some way to boost the BSTs of the older units (I still doubt a 6* rank is coming, so the simplest way I can think of is allowing older units to be merged beyond +10).

Also I hear the next TT is going to have these limited units as the bonus units, which would be pretty shitty, but I won't put it past them, so I'll save my free roll until we hear a bit more.
In concept, I actually think all the prequels had some good ideas on the table. But I'd also say that about Star Trek V. Or Batman v Superman.
