So, You Wanted To Write a Novel. You Poor Bastard.

Being an adventure of madness, miscellany, distraction, the occasional picture of attractive people, and somewhere in there, some shit about actually writing. At which point I'm probably drinking.

#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.

Get your face on a Marvel action figure — unless you're a woman »

I saw a comment that was like ‘but you could use the Iron Man figure!’ and I went to look at it… yeah.  It’s a can, sure, but it’s a clearly male-power can.

Once again, the industry missing it by that much.

Destiny - some random yobbo’s thoughts

I truly feel like Destiny is one of those games that A: doesn’t respond well to targeted reviewing, even if reviewers make some absolutely fair points and B: is a game that’s preparing to grow into itself.

The reviews are good to middling, leading to a consensus of ‘okay’ and the frustrating part is, I can see where they’re coming from and how they got there.  It’s exacerbated by those fair points, such as the overly cumbersome mechanic of forming a fireteam.  This needs to be streamlined.  The arguments about voice chat being underutilized are also fair, even if I don’t particularly care about ever speaking to someone in the game 95% of the time.

However.  There’s something here that’s incredibly solid.  The gameplay is amazingly polished; it handles like the best shooter I’ve played.   My favorite bit, though, is the mechanic of putting the vast majority of the lore and the story inside an out-of-game collectible app/website for those that want that story.  You have to want to dig for it, seek it, and piece it together yourself.  That’s catnip to me, but it’s a point of controversy for people that prefer easy feeding.  Me, I see the way Bungie wanted to do it - small bites of story for the shooty people who want to roll without stopping, and this little ‘codex’ for those of us who want that meat, at will, to access whenever we want.

The story is small at first - it begins to wrap up in this ‘first chapter’ even as tantalizing details come forth.  I think it’s a fair assessment that Bungie is at the risk of that trap many epic fantasy writers fall into - under-parceling the neat tidbits and starving out the reader before they can get to “that really good stuff!” that the creator is promising later.  The subtle story of Rasputin the Warmind is fascinating.  GET MOVING WITH IT.

I think this is a game that’s going to get revisited by critics and fence-sitters 3-6 months down the line and find that core Bungie put in there, waiting to be found.  Meanwhile, at the severe risk of looking like a shill, I’m genuinely, truly enjoying what they’ve got started here.  I’m willing to stick by it and see what they go with this.

Man Who Made 911 Call That Led to John Crawford's Death Admits He Lied - Atlanta Blackstar »

  John Crawford III was killed by Ohio police on Aug. 5 because they apparently thought the toy gun he had just purchased from the Wal-Mart in Beavercreek was real, but now the white man who called 911 to report Crawford has admitted he lied to police.

Not only is this indicative of police’s willingness to militarize and murder citizens (especially black citizens) with barely a whisper of justification, but it also goes to show that all too often, a white person’s bullshit word is more than enough to pin blame to a black man.

Ronald Ritchie is liable for John Crawford’s murder.  As is noted in the article, for extra bullshit, Ohio is an open carry state.  Had a white dude been toying with a fake gun, no one would say boo.  Had a white dude been holding a real gun, no one would say boo.

But this asshole got on the phone and told the cops a black man was pointing a gun AT CHILDREN, so without looking into it any further, or asking if it were true (as they almost certainly would have otherwise), they gunned Crawford down.

On occasion, I enjoy foolish f2p mobile games in between work/hobby/’actual’ games.  (They’re games.)  This is an interpretation of a character called Sefia, from Brave Frontier.  Figure itself about 3 inches high, 100% polymer clay save for a gem in the sword.  Paint, glaze, some glitter for fabulosity.

If your jokey addition to the conversation about the upcoming Thor change is ‘LOL ‘Whor”, I reserve the right to dump my coffee on you and never speak with you again.

That fucking awful joke is not only dogs ball awful and sexist, but tired. Kill it with extreme prejudice.

I swear to God, my fingernails grow like lightning ever since I started sculpting.
