The Woods of Mal

Hey. I'm a guy who does things, I guess. I like to act, write, watch movies, and other stuff too. I'm a little hard to describe, particularly because I don't even have a firm grasp on myself. I'm strange, I suppose, but that oddity is something I like about myself. It's worth mentioning that I likely won't Tumbl (is that the right word for the action of using Tumblr?) very often so don't follow me if you want messages to be all up ons your Dashboard all the dang time.

ConBravo was fun.  Got StreetPasses for days just walking around with my 3DS and grabbed a copy of Metroid Prime in the dealer’s room, officially marking my long overdue entrance into the franchise.  Pat was really cool and funny in real life.  We talked a lot about old school survival horror vs. current indie horror and that was a lot of fun.

So, with this post, I’d normally say that I’m back, but I’ve actually got to peace out again.  Early screenings have started for Guardians of the Galaxy and I need to get off the internet so I don’t get spoiled like I did for Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  I’ll be back next Saturday (hard to believe it’s almost been a year since the Comic-Con footage leaked and I expressed doubt that I’d be able to make the wait) with my thoughts on the movie.  Until then, I’ve got some posts staggered for the next nine days.  Some are Guardians, others are not.  Until then, see you later!

Well, it’s that time again.  This weekend, I’m off to Hamilton for ConBravo.  Recognise me by my Homestar Runner shirt on Friday and my Teen Titans shirt on Saturday (and the triumphant return of the blue ‘n pink Subspace Bag!).  If you’re carrying a 3DS, you might even wind up seeing some guy in purple proudly declaring that hope rides alone.  Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I’ll have encountered (and discussed Persona with) the mysterious and elusive “The Pat” by the end of the whole affair as well as successfully convinced the remaining Zaibatsu members that I am not stalking them across Ontario.  Farewell until Monday, friends!

Da Cwuel Tuba’s Thesis.

Back in February, I figured “Hey, the Best Friends are doing a Nuzlocke.  Maybe this is the push I’ve been needing to finally do one of my own.”  So I decided to begin the challenge and, after much grinding, more losses than I’d care to admit, and an exorbitant amount of time spent trying to come up with nicknames that reference things, I’ve finally made it to the Elite Four.  Should be interesting to see how the last leg of the journey goes.
In order, Pokémon are named for Radical Edward of Cowboy Bebop, Pat of Two Best Friends Play, Otachi of Pacific Rim, Mayday Parker of Spider-Girl, Rarity of My Little Pony, and that one girl from that one thing we’re all sick to death of.

Oh my God… I think it and it happens!

Oh my God… I think it and it happens!

And here’s The Protomen.  Christ, they are awesome live.  Pictures and videos will never do justice to the feeling of being there.  I’ve heard they’re better with an entire audience of fans (and that doesn’t surprise me one bit), but they were radical nonetheless.  I can’t wait to see them again.

First set of pictures from that show I Fight Dragons and The Protomen did (I think there were some other bands, but nobody really knew them) Warped Tour in Toronto.  I Fight Dragons were pretty rad live, but their stage was really tiny.  I mean, I guess I didn’t expect a huge thing because most people probably had no idea who they were, but it was still even smaller than I thought it would be.  Didn’t get any pictures with them during the signing after their set because The Protomen went on about five minutes after so I had to get my stuff signed way quicker than I would have liked.  Still, I got to talk to Brian a bit and tell him about how I used Heads Up, Hearts Down in the Scott Pilgrim video I made for school a few years back.

She’s trying to re-enact Cowboy Bebop everyday, but she can’t get Steve Blum to come around.
