Movie tracking 2011

Just my own little list of movies that I've seen during the year so I don't have to recall them all at once from my head. I'll post a few little thoughts about them.   Green Hornet: Well, despite the Seth Rogan fails as the original Green Hornet, I loved this movie mostly for Kato. Paul: Two Seth Rogan movies in one year? That's odd. And with the guys from Hot Fuzz, it's a major win. I Am Number 4: Michael Bay movie plan and simple. Seen one seen them all, just the kid had my rpg powers

SHOWdown!!!! Episode 1: Godzilla Vs. Godzilla!

Welcome to an all new segment of The Philosophy of Nerdism. Despite what you may have thought when you clicked on this, there will be no actually depiction of a fight. Sorry, folks.   SHOWdown!!!! is where I will compare and contrast two 'shows'. By this, I'm referring to movies and television. With each entry I'll pick two movies, two TV shows, or perhaps one of each and I'll break them down and tell you which one is better.   I'll break down each competitor into five key elements. Whichever ga

Political Corner

An interesting game I find myself playing, is too look at the situation the great country of America is in, and try to come up with solutions that ironically, politicians are fully aware of, but as of yet, too uncoordinated to pass. Amendments to the Constitution shouldn't be taken lightly, but these are not light times. One problem everyone is looking towards is the party system. Funding of a major third party, in my opinion, would heavily depolarize the descision method Congress is mired in, a

Playing that stupid game may now be beneficial...

Heya, folks. According to a small newsletter sold in coffee shops and other such establishments, playing the MMO, World of Warcraft may have finally benefited someone's life.     So this Norwegian kid saved his sister by imitating WoW. Great, just great. Whatever works I guess.   It does beg the question: how threatening can a moose actually be?   "Hey, Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of this hat!"   quotes taken from 'The Coffee News' August 22, 2011 edition (Great Lakes area A) used without

Irritation Thu- er, Friday.

Yeah, yeah. So, I was busy yesterday and couldn't update. Big freaking deal. It's not like anybody reads this crap.   ...   Meh, well people should read this crap.   If I didn't know I was a genius, I wouldn't listen to the trash I write.   Anyway, down to the business at hand. What's been irritating me?   I remember the days when the Disney Channel was a semi-respectable TV station. It was never great, but it had its moments. I remember the days when they actually aired genuinely creative sho

NFL

Well it seems Marvel Man wants to see an increase in blog activity well here I go.   As you may or may not know, the NFL lockout has ended!   In case you didn't know a lockout doesn't mean the players did not want to play. Quite the opposite, if it were a strike then that means the players didn't want to play. A lockout is where the owners lock the facilities to keep the players, well you guessed it locked out.   Basically the past year was the NFL's biggest profit margain evah. The owners

Welcome one and all! This is Marvel's Corner!   Today we tackle the USA's Gold Cup performance, an NFL linebacker, and do quick overview of the other Gold Cup nations. So yes, for the time being, this blog is more about soccer than it is comics, movies, etc. I promise I'll get back to serving mistake-filled rants on those topics soon.

Story

In a world where the Sun has turned into a Red Giant unexpectedly, before it destroys the Earth, a well known mutant stops the humongous star from devouring the planet by making a barrier which hold the Red Giant off but not before the massive amounts of radiation render many countries incapable of allowing people to live in them anymore, and although it has lasted for 20 years, it appears that two years are all that the barrier has enough energy left to withstand, unless the mutant's three pow

Marvel's Corner: Gold Cup Edition

Welcome one and all! This is Marvel's Corner!   We are back! After a few months long turf war with some other blogs, a tornado strike on our HQ, and a battle over union rights with my staff, Marvel's Corner is back. Don't worry, I crushed my staff's spirit. Those socialists were draining me dry. "We have car payments to make... My kid can't drop out of school, she's only in fourth grade... Blah blah... You can't pay me with Marvel money, that stuff doesn't exist... I haven't eaten in days..." Yo

Anatomy of a Game episode 1

Nearly everyone who's ever played a Capcom fighting game will tell you that it's a blast. But what makes them so great? Welcome to Anatomy of a Game, my first blog feature. In it, I'm going to try to disect games so that I can see what makes them tick.   Anyway, back on topic. Little bit of backstory. Capcom basically pioneered the fighting game genre. They did not however, create it. There were multiple, much more primitive fighting games released before it. Few, however have created such a big

Reports Of My Death, Yadda Yadda Yadda...

Hi, guys. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been around on the site for a while. Most of you probably didn't give it a second thought. I just wanted to say that, yes, I am still alive and intend to begin contributing to Electric Ferret once again (time permitting).   I suppose I'll explain my absence, just in case somebody was actually wondering where I was. Primarily, my school's baseball season began. I enjoy playing baseball, and have been spending hours at practices/games. This has

A Hero's Awakening Chapter 2

Important Note: The previous chapter was from Travis' perspective, this is from his cousin Cody's perspective. -Chapter 2- “It’s better to be caught than to be caught in a lie†~ Cody Fox Travis once told me that if I didn’t do my homework, I just don’t have to raise my hand and the teacher won’t even notice me. That used to work… until high school. Two months as a freshmen and I’m learning that teachers like to hear from everyone. That’s why I make sure to do my homework eve

Canis Minor's Top Ten Strangest Anime

Anyone who watches anime regularly can tell you that most of the shows are pretty good. But the fact of the matter is that it's just a form of TV show. There's crummy anime and more importantly, there's weird anime. Here are my top ten picks for the weirdest anime ever. Please keep in mind that this list is purely subjective, so if one or more of your picks didn't make it, feel free to make a friendly comment, but try to avoid ranting.   Without further ado...   10.

The Magician?

Chapter 1 Part 3: The Magician?   Her eyes, flew open, quickly to escape from the nightmare she experienced. She would see that along with the moon still out, that she also had a blanket placed over her. With caring hands she pulled it over her and went back to sleep.   "Thank...you...." She managed to say before drifting back to sleep.   Back in the house quirky sounds could be heard inside. The sounds would continue all night and through part of the morning. When they finally stopped,

The Meadow

Chapter 1 Part 2: The Meadow   Kurumi wandered into a thick bundle of tall grass, though calling it tall in her case would be a lie. She had seen what looked like a lake from where she stood and wanted to check it out. Walking through the grass was difficult however, while she could easily traverse it she didn't want to accidentally crush a poor animal because she was careless. She payed close attention to the way the grass contoured to her legs and feet as not to cause that mistake. 'W

Long Silence

Chapter 1: Long Silence   The girl found herself in a meadow, the pouring rain running down her cheeks. Her snow white hair becoming dirty in the mud, she didn't care she only would only lay there. It was already hard to determine if she was crying or if it was only the rain. One thing was certain however, she was upset. Vastly upset, over what might be the last time she ever saw a day of sunshine over her head. What would await was surely a dark cloud over head is what she would think.

Are the races, that find themselves different then others, to be shunned just because of diversity? Giants, elves, dragons, humans. These four races are what made the earth so vastly beautiful, but over the years only humans remained. Dragons, elves, and giants are all but long gone now due to humanization of the earth.

Harry Dresden is the magic version of Peter Parker

Recently the Borders Bookstore around me have been closing down. As such, I've been there to two different stores. I managed to pick up a copy of The Dresden Files Welcome to the Jungle. This I've been after To quote the author Jim Butcher from the Dresden files comics, "Harry is like Peter Parker, except instead of a science geek he's a magic geek." Now, after this fact a few things suddenly come to mind and make sense that didn't before. Some of it may be the personality, some of it may

I Don't Know Anything About Dragon Ball

No really, I don't.   Well, not MUCH anyhow. Here is what I know about Dragon Ball:   1) Goku is some dude from another planet who wanders around learning kung fu. He starts off ridiculously overpowered and as things progress it just grows astronomically worse. I don't know if they ever show him splitting a mountain in two with a karate chop, but I'm pretty sure he could and no one would blink an eye.   2) The planet he comes from is Vegata. I think he also fights a bad guy named Vegata, w
