Maxx- I like that!  

So now we have Deadlift, Derailleur, Ranadiel and Nobody so far.

I'd want to call Agent D "Big McLargeHuge" but that would be silly.

I guess my superhero name would be Derailleur.  I use that as my Love Live! School Idol Festival handle now.  

I was watching USA vs India Olympic womens' field hockey with my mom and aunt (who's visiting from India) and we were all really conflicted.  One of the US players, Rachel Dawson, graduated the high school I work at and I took my aunt to visit my school and talk to the special ed department.  But India is mother country, even though I wasn't born there (I was born in Netherlands.)  Anyway, the India team is skilled, but lack the fitness/stamina of the US players, and that's true for Indian athletes in most any sport.  Oftentimes they have the skill, but lack the fitness/stamina.  

I really felt bad for India's team because their coach just seemed so disaffected, like he didn't give a crap.  That's just such a shame, because it's hard enough being a woman in India where the culture in much of the country pretty much thinks a girl/woman playing hockey is a fool's errand and that a female's place is to marry and be "barefoot and pregnant" in her husband's home.  And that's just so chauvinistic and sexist and just plain rotten.  Commentators were saying that one of the Indian players begged her family to postpone her marriage so she could compete in the Olympics.  And I can already see fingers wagging and people "throwing shade" at her back in home country.  I mean, wow, being able to compete in the Olympics- that's such an honor, and to see a coach so disaffected was deflating.  I would love to see India's womens' field hockey team get a more energetic coach who actually cares, who believes these women deserve to be here, deserve to participate in sports, and that they're worth more than just being some jerk's arranged bride.  Because when you have a coach who's disaffected, the team kinda falls apart.  I may be jumping to conclusions that the coach is a sexist pig, but his whole attitude and demeanor made me feel that.

I love this.  The thread has gone from hair showing your age to ParaNormOlympics to turning RPGFanners into a super hero team like Justice League or Avengers. 

Now we just need superhero names...

Coming back to the checking out the bodies on Olympic athletes, Sam Mikulak of the US men's gymnastics team said it best.  "Maybe [we should] compete with our shirts off," He told the Wall Street Journal.  "People make fun of us for wearing tights. But if they saw how yoked we are maybe that would make a difference."

Seriously, those guys are jacked like comic book superheroes.  I know I'll never be jacked like that or as ottermode ripped as The divers (due in no small part to age), but seeing that just makes me want to put more into my workouts, stay vigilant with my nutrition, and push myself to cycle longer distances faster.  Just like I look up to the older dudes in my cycling club kicking ass, I want to be that fit and lively older guy that a young buck can look up to and think, "Yeah, I want to be like him when I grow up."

This old commercial totally backfired.  To this day, I still want a Jooky.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Bsys9hYFewc

And of course Missing Link Weightlifting (I really think the Yetis have it this year, though I've heard the Sasquatches are trying a new training regimen)

I don't know, man.  The Yowie team is looking like a dark horse team this year.

There's more than one type of ghost and there's more than one type of zombie/undead.  And are we going to have a controversy about certain types of ghosts doping and thus being disqualified from the ParaNormOlympics?

Why only skeletons?  The zombies and ghosts are shouting discrimination!

As what happens every year with the Olympics, there are always articles, memes, and what-have-you decrying how folks objectify the athletes.  Let's be honest here, it's damn near impossible not to.  I mean, we're seeing a mass gathering of the world's most physically fit humans.  Like, these are all peak condition humans and since health and vitality is viscerally attractive to all of us, of course we're going to get a little "hot 'n bothered" looking at these peak humans.  They're some of the most beautiful people on Earth, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.  

I mean, yeah, male gymnasts are buff like superheroes, male swimmers are super ripped, female indoor volleyball players have legs for days, and I have no shame in saying that I think Alex Morgan on the USA women's soccer team is pretty hot!  

I'm certainly not going to feel guilty or ashamed about "enjoying the view" when watching the Olympics.  (And I'm willing to bet that the athletes being around other exotic athletes in peak physical condition from around the world, they're all boinking each other's brains out over in Olympic village.  So, heh, the athletes are kinda objectifying each other too.)

This team is gonna be out of commission to recover for a minute, save DINCREST who seems to never really get all that stressed.

This is funny because people think this about me in real life, but the truth is that I get plenty stressed and plenty worried about stuff... I'm just good at not showing it.

I'm a hellion?  Excellent!


EDIT: Apparently the hellion is a large, muscular, violently aggressive barbarian woman.  Death by snu-snu!

That moment when you realize several things:
1) The music on this album ("Refugee" by the band Bad4Good) was written and played by kids age 12-16. Hell, when I was that age, I could barely play scales on my bass, and these kids were tearing it up! That cover of Phil Lynott's "Nineteen" is ferocious!

2) The singer was Budnick from Camp Anawannna, John Connor's buddy in Terminator 2, Stoop Kid in Hey Arnold... and he has some vicious range!

3) The drummer now plays for Avenged Sevenfold and has played with Bad Religion and several other killer bands

4) And that this is probably the best album you've never heard.

(At least take a moment to listen to the song "Curious Intentions." Guarantee you'll want to hear more.)

In thinking about the Olympics, FIFA, and all the political and megalomaniacal crap surrounding them, at the end of the day I do support the athletes themselves. They earned the right to compete at this elite global level and several athletes from my neck of the woods are representing.  And the refugee team just being present- I hope that positive message isn't lost. I want to see the athletes do well and I hope they get their due for working so hard and not get cheated by the powers that be. I support the athletes, but not the IOC governing body.

It's kinda like the sentiment, "I'm not against the soldiers, I'm against the wars." All the love and respect in the world for the military (military runs VERY strong in my family) but the organization (read: the government) that exploits them in these pointless wars that do more harm than good... yeah.

A wig party sounds like it would be fun.  

That being said, Halloween is my favorite holiday because costumes.  I also dress up when I trawl the shops for Free Comic Book Day.  I dressed up as Gambit this year and I might need to acquire another costume.  Oh, and when I played with Pool of Thorns, we all dressed up as Star Wars characters for a Halloween show- the drummer was Emperor, guitarist was Chewbacca, singer was Leia, and I was Lando Calrissian.  Right now, the costumes in my closet are Gambit, Ghostbuster, and Lando (though I'd need to grow out the moustache to pull that off.)

So far Velvet is my favorite character to play as in Leiftrasir. I'm a sucker for mid-range melee fighters, and her movement abilities are really fun to mess around with. She also has my favorite guard animation in the game.
I found Velvet to be the strongest character in the remake. When I had to do the boss rush or repeat an annoying boss fight for bad endings, she was the one I chose.

I agree that Velvet and Mercedes are super improved in the remake.  They were weaksauce in the original.  That plus Cornelius's final stage being rebalanced properly were two of the best things about the remake.
