"Sweet Child O Mine" New Orleans cover. I like cover songs that are done in a different genre.

I think Falcom is going to be surprised at the sales once Trails hits Steam. I think there are more people on Steam who want a quality JRPG and, judging by some other games, Steam players aren't afraid to purchase JRPGs.

I think this is a really interesting and pretty project.

A guy films his kid...I don't know maybe twice a month for the first 13 years of her life.  That whole "they grow up so quickly" thing comes to mind here (age itself is so gradual anyways); but I like how candid this seems to be.  You see her laugh, chat, cry, all that stuff.  I know people have done those "take a photo everyday for X years", but this one seems a bit less robotic looking since it's more natural.

I find this kind of sad because I realize how each moment with one's child is precious. As a parent, I sometimes take for granted the time that I have with my kids.

If it's politically incorrect to dress up in black face, would it still be politically incorrect to dress up as Al Jolson performing as Jack Robin performing in blackface?

Or what if you wore an all-black bodysuit with a face painted on it? Actually that would just be terrifying. Let's get a flash-mob to do it.

White Chicks was/is a racist movie. Implication or not, Julianne Hough had a tan face and not a black one. I break bones on technicalities.

Also, I agree with this view on religions:

Regardless of religion or not, humans make war.

In world news:

"America rapes itself!"

Yay for us! The most ridiculous thing about this is there's no possible way the House could win... so it's just a big mindless hissy fit. Even Senate Republicans are telling them to fuck off. I also love how government shutdowns stop everything that helps its people, but leaves open everything that dicks them and the rest of the world over. How did we come to this?

It political grandstanding from both parties. America will implode at some point.

Me being nit-picky about Breaking Bad's finale:

Code:
Did Jesse get stopped by the cops as he was fleeing? What about Jesse's fingerprints on the gun that tie him to the scene of the crime? Each Aryan with the exception of Todd (conveniently) is shot by Walt's contraption. Some things felt a little too convenient


Regardless, I think it was a great show and those things I can over-look.

Sometimes I wonder what I missed with Breaking Bad. I can only imagine it goes way beyond the uninteresting premise. I generally can't stand anything about drugs, which is why I never bothered giving it a shot. Maybe someday.

Give it a try. Sometimes descriptions of movies/shows don't portray how well/awful a show really is. In this case, it doesn't reveal how good it is.

Finally watched the Breaking Bad finale. It was good. I'm glad they wrapped up everyone's arc the way they did. Great show.

I'm glad I never really got in the Dexter series.  That beard he has solidified me ever getting into the series. Speaking of, that "beard" looks a brushing leftover from a golden retriever. Horrible. Are we going to have to get a double for facial hair? Seriously.

Tell her farting is horrible and you all can't put up with it anymore.

Vince Gilligan stated that this last episode of BB (Ozymandias) was the best that they have had or will have.

Casey Affleck or Matt Damon as Robin? Kevin Smith as the Penguin?

best show ever

It's also one of my favorite shows. It doesn't glorify or romanticizes evil to the degree that other shows/movies do. It shows the very real consequences of making bad decisions and how such decisions can have such a bad effect on people and those around them.

My wife and I have come up with different ending scenarios for Breaking Bad (we call it BB for short).

My rambling thoughts of how it ends:
Code:
Walt dies, Hank dies, Skyler dies, the Aryans die, Lydia dies, Gomie dies ( or he may survives and tells the police about Walt), and Jesse lives. Walt either is killed by someone, ingests the ricin, or dies of cancer. I don't think Walt will be put in jail since the show already gave the victory of arresting Heisenberg to Hank. This was a nod to Hank's character. It was his big moment. Even though Jesse has a hit out on him I don't see him dying, because it seems that the Aryans don't care about listening to Walt; they do their own thing. It's possible that Jesse either escapes or is kidnapped and forced to make blue meth for the Aryans. I think Walt comes back for Jesse.

One of the things about Jesse's character that I think ties in to the end of the show is his feelings about violence against kids. He has had a problem with kids getting used or getting trampled on in the process of something bad happening. I think he will finally see that Walt actually cared for him (in a twisted way) and ends up watching over Walt's kids for him, but from a distance. Jesse knows where Walt hide his barrels of money, so it wouldn't be hard for him to retrieve it and become the benefactor to Walt Jr. and Holly.
