The Ending of Korra, And More Like Ass Effect (Amirite)

June 29, 2012 § 1 Comment

Once again: this is also available at my new site www.johnmoyer.ca

Let’s not beat around the bush here: endings have been coming down the pipe. I am interested in those things!

For those of you who don’t know it, I am a huge nerd who cares about cartoons and video games. Because those things matter.¬†

In any case, Mass Effect first! For those who are worried: there are actually very few spoilers in this post. It’s all good, ladies and germs, but be wary.

From Lands Far Away

Don’t forget: you can also read this at my new site: http://www.johnmoyer.ca

 

Although reading short story collections can be difficult, but I’m enjoying Fragile Things immensely. It’s wonderful and magical, but collections need time to get into. Because there’s no on-going story, I found it hard to get interested at first. The first two stories are great, but they end. I don’t usually read short fiction, but this has been a good experience for me.

N.B: I have a new website over at johnmoyer.ca , where I will eventually move all of my posts over. It’s currently up and running (despite still needing a few tweaks), so you can head on over there.I’ll cross-post for the next month or so, but start moseying over!

Edit: Uhh, it seems the site is down. It’ll be up…soon? Hopefully?

Let’s get your crippling disappointment out of the way first:

As your treat for this Friday night (no, I’m not doing anything else, why do you ask?), I’ve compiled a few stories from work that I think you might enjoy.

For those just joining us, I work retail, selling books. Yes, this is going great places.

Let’s See Action

June 20, 2012 § 2 Comments

Today, despite the crippling (it’s 42 degrees Celsius in Toronto!) heat, I managed to get some work done. Let me say that, despite having to work the night shift tonight, I am in no way sad, because this means I miss out having to do anything on one of the hottest days ever.

It’s a good feeling.

Death! Death! Doom and death!

But for safety’s sake I am wearing a black shirt, so I should be fine with today’s post.

The Bringer Of Fire

June 15, 2012 § 1 Comment

Last night I watched Prometheus.

This is my story.

The Alien universe is not one that I’ve spent a lot of time in, but it’s one that I still find very cool. One of the things I love about the opening scene of Alien is the dark, cluttered, utilitarian, and practically primitive look of the Nostramo, the ship they ride about in. It reflects the grim, gritty, and corporate nature of the universe, where profits go hand-in-hand with discovery. Plus, the xenomorphs that they encounter are a great representation of the downside of adventure: sometimes, when you go looking, you find something that you weren’t looking for.

Look into your heart, we’ve got a little Alien in all of us
