So in Canada we have fancy smoke warning labels:

Some can get pretty graphic (a needle in an eye ball, a damaged lung/heart on a platter), and some kinda funny.

So anyways.  Apparently Ontario doctors are trying to make the argument that now unhealthy FOODS should carry a similar label. 


I don't know what to comment on first: a warning label with a fat person on my Mickey D's fries, or that the government would spend on this than balance the budget.

Sigh.... nah, whatever.  I'm just blue.

I may be selling Game and OST soon if anyone is interested.

Ass Creed is always a good bet for good times and fun conspiracy theory.

Vanquish is bad ass, but can be really...hm, tricky?

Dead Space is the shizz

Xcom I haven't seen score less than 80%.  It's apparently really hard, but I'm glad to see it get love.

Why is no one watching Shin Sekai Yori??? :(
It's good!  The one major anime I look forward to every week, I'm happy.

Finished Season 1 of Avatar. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Love that show.  It only gets better too, damned good for a Nick cartoon.

Downton Abbey was great this week!  A lot of events, some girl power, and after last weeks bomb shell surprise, it was in good spirits about turning things around.  Maggie Smith wins this show

After the last two seasons, Dexter has really turned things around to being amazing again.

I've kinda...lost interest in Boardwalk Empire.  A damn shame, I love a lot of the elements, but the show is too big and too often feels like it's going nowhere.  May pick it up after the season and rush through it.

Huge gif upset computer running things.

Amazing though.  I wonder what sorta crazy shit is brewing up on the surface there.

Obviously, ICO is historically accurate account of horned people.

El Shaddai is good, just enjoy the experience and don't let anything bother you.

That was it for me.  I'm the type where style CAN outweight the experience.  I think Legend of Mana is an almost *perfect* title in this regard, and I can play it again and against just to see the world.
No one would ever pick Twilight Princess as a favorite, but it's mine for being the most atmospheric Zelda title.

I liked it, personally.  But I definitely understand why people wouldn't dig it.  I think it's just one of "those" titles; some will vouch for it, some would rather spit on it (I think reviews show that polarization as well).

God I love a good bass melody...  good share Din.  You found one of my secret favorite things!


This is Die Antwoord.  They are a South African Rave Rap group that will make you say "wtf did I just watch?".  Ninja and Yo-landi Vi$$er make an annoying beat.  But you know how it is with annoying songs that get stuck in your head.  But hey, if the chick has more bling than Mr T, who can object to a minute of their time?  I love the one black chick in the vid doing some major fist pump move.

El-Shaddai's battle system is actually pretty in-depth and... um, Japanese-y.  It's about timing your attacks, not button-mashing them or anything.  :P

I personally loved the game, but it's definitely a hard sell.  The bit with the designer jeans?  Fucken awesome haha

Baten Kaitos II -- I'm doing the Pac-Man sidequest (clearly Banco loves themselves), and I'm scared of fuck up.

An awesome weekend comes to a close with the purchase of a shirt that has this on it

Kudos to Dice for alerting me to it's existence.

YW, chap.

I can't speak for the world, but as for myself, I don't like watching things with subtitles because they mean I have to actually WATCH all the time.  I can't look away, or I won't know what is being said.  Granted, I don't tend to watch movies in the theater, where people tend to be more visually locked in to the movie.  But that's still my reason.

As far as black & white, I think you're right, but I don't know why it's true.

I'm the same but for different reasons.  Usually I like multi-tasking while I sit and watch, mainly because I find solely "sitting and watching" to be very unproductive (I like drawing while I watch a movie or TV show, or getting some cleaning done); so subtitles don't always work for me.  Of course, that doesn't stop me from sitting with it every once in a while (one anime this season finally particularly has me pretty hooked and "paying attention").

Black and white may simply be because it feels antiquated.  Rather, and especially in the more simple mind-set of a kid, they may like that sort of flashiness you get with color TV than blank and white.
