Watched the two Tengan Toppa Gurran Lagann movies tonight. I don't know how Gainax managed to do it, but they SOMEHOW made it even MORE AWESOME. They made the robots EVEN BIGGER. Trust me, before today, I didn't even realized that was possible.

Tomorrow (well, technically later today), I have to go teach how to safely use tools by having them deconstruct an old couch. My biggest challenge will actually be refraining from posing with sunglasses and a power drill, while yelling "MINE IS THE DRILL THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS".

It happens.

I'm taking a class this term on video game ethics, and one of the assignments is playing a game this month and writing a paper on the ethical choices it might have the player make, and how the game deals with them. I'm already dismissing any/all MMOs out of hand, because I really don't enjoy most of those types (SMT:Imagine was the rare exception). The assignment would rather I play a game I haven't before, which takes out KOTOR I, Mass Effect 1, Valkyrie Profile, Persona 4, and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. (I could play my copy of Beyond Good and Evil, but playing a, er, pirated copy of a game for an ethics class is a little far on the "completely missing the point" axis. Same goes for other ROMs of mine.)

So I've narrowed it down to inFAMOUS and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. I'll probably try to play both, because I'd like to finish the game for the paper. And Nocturne is approximately impossible. I know people who die in the tutorial dungeon. Yeah.

I finished watching all of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann in 72 hours.

I may suddenly start TALKING IN ALL CAPS or thinking about ROBOTS COMBINING INTO BIGGER ROBOTS. Or posing dramatically. And yelling. With determination.

Because that fuels the awesome. And if I am full of a determined and fighting spirit, nothing can stand in my way. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!


Um. I found the End of Awesome. It's...pretty damn awesome. And big. Huge. Think of the biggest thing you can. No. It's bigger than that.

*wanders off to Do Something Awesome*

"Sounds about right."

"Crap! Um, I've got a charred piece of meat here."

"That's called a steak. That's dinner. What about the sacrifices?"
