Teen Titans Go! Episode Review: Serious BusinessHello internet, this is Overkill-0526. So against my better judgement, I decided to watch an episode of Teen Titans Go!; and I can safely say that it's one of the stupidest cartoons I've ever seen. Keep in mind that I've also seen Planet Sheen and Problem Solverz. It's true what everybody keeps saying, that this show is a disgrace to an all around superb cartoon. Let's take a look at the episode, Serious Business and see why this show fails so hard.Teen Titans Go! Episode Review: Serious Business18 hours ago in Editorial More Like This
The premise of the episode is that Robin (or as I like to call him in this iteration, Boy Blunder) takes a stand to limit bathroom usage when the other titans are spending like 75% of their free time in there. This is because they, and I'm not making this up, use the bathroom to tap dance (Raven), sing (Cyborg), make steam art (Beast Boy), and cook chili in a toilet bowl (Starfire). Isn't that the kind of thing you like to see in a superhero show? Stupid stories m
An Old Flame's SmellToday was a day unlike no otherAn Old Flame's Smell19 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
I was so scared
I was distracted by many thoughts
For some reason, at work today, a smell was gathered in my senses and all throughout my body structure. A smell of that of my ex boyfriend. My first love. My oh my his smell, I thought, had remained in the inner trash compactor of my mind. It was that smell I missed so much.
The smell was that of a home. A home filled with 2 dogs, a brother, a mom and stepdad. Maybe it wasn't the smell of having pets in the house. It had to have been a detergent of some kind. Whenever I saw him in school, he always brought that wonderful aroma with him. I was addicted to this particular aroma for what seemed like many years. The two of us were photogenic together. People would say that we -did- look like boyfriend and girlfriend. I had hoped we would live to see each other walking to the aisle to get married. I wondered what my life would have been like had I chosen to put up with the emotional unavailability he so obviou
On Pairings at the End of NarutoSo, anyone who reads the Naruto manga knows that it ended some weeks ago with Chapter 700. As we saw at the end, the winning couples at the end were:On Pairings at the End of Naruto11 hours ago in Editorial More Like This
Naruto and Hinata, Sasuke and Sakura, Ino and Sai, Shikamaru and Temari, and finally Choji and Karui.
As I expected, this caused some anger from the fans of pairings who lost. However, it's really gotten sad: from fans making petitions to ban Naruto, to fans coming up with theories saying the ending was all a lie to some of the fan art some users have been putting out. I've even heard some of Sakura's fans dropped their former idol because she ended up with Sasuke, not Naruto, which to me proves they were never true fans to begin with.
However, my beef is not with fans of a particular pairing, it's with shipping in general. Why do we obsess over who is going to end up with who in a manga like this? Romance was never a major theme or concern in this manga. Besides the obvious crushes and a couple of confessions of love, the pairing s

Released exactly one year after the critically acclaimed second instalment, “Catching Fire”, Francis Lawrence returns to the director’s chair for the third and fourth films in the dystopian sci-fi action series. The final book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy by Suzanne Collins follows suit with the concluding “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” novels, by becoming a two-part adaptation of its source material. Currently Hollywood’s favourite, and highest grossing, action heroine, Jennifer Lawrence returns as lead character Katniss Everdeen, two-time survivor of the deadly titular games. Following her rebellious acts of defiance against the totalitarian Capitol government, Katniss becomes a mentally broken and reluctant hero for the citizens of Panem and its rough, poverty-stricken districts, but stands tall as their “Mockingjay” symbol of hope. Although free from the Games themselves, Katniss faces her most difficult challe

“And what would that be?”
“I’m in love. I have been for a very long time.”
“What? But how is that possible? I would have known!”
“You would think that one of us would notice, but now that I think about it, it makes sense that we didn’t.”
“And why is that?”
“Because it wasn’t obvious. It was so simple it slipped past everybody.”
“Then how did you finally figure it out?”
“Think about it. What does everyone want in a partner?”
“Well, I want someone who can make me laugh, who makes me feel comfortable and who picks me up when I fall down. Someone who has seen me at my worst and stayed, someone who has an actual investment in me and someone who would care if I disappeared from their life.”
“Yes! Yes, that exactly. That’s what we all want from a partner.”

Keep a straight face
Don't let them know the rage inside
Keep it in Keep it in
Don't tell them the truth
Keep on lying
Don't let them see the sadness you hold
But little cracks appeared
little by little it was breaking
that mask I've been wearing for so long
Is almost broken
Then it's gone
I lost my cool
I let them see the rage inside
And ran away as soon as I could
I hated this mask
but I felt like I needed it
I don't want them to know
Why should they know?
"Why?" Is what I always feel like asking myself
"Why do I keep on lying?"
"Why hide what you feel?"
"Why won't you let them in?"
But I don't know
It's become an instinct
I mend my mask
and put it on again
Ah, today's another day
Where I'll keep on my mask
I won't let them see
What I really feel
...I hate it
I hate it so much
I want them to know
How frustrating it is, you know?
I can't handle it
The cracks appear again
Threatening to break it again
But I don't want it to
It was my shield

ConvictionI want to talk about the idea of “conviction” in some fundamentalist Christian circles. Particularly I want to talk about how it is used by some Christians both as a gas-lighting technique and as a method of manipulation. However, I have not really had time or the ability to put my thoughts together in a coherent fashion. So instead, I think I will just tell a couple of stories. These stories occurred while I lived as a woman, so I am using those pronouns and terms since they are relevant to the stories.Conviction1 day ago in Emotional More Like This
Note: for those unaware of this particular Christianese phrase, I am referring to the following definition: a feeling of guilt or shame that God inflicts on a person that comes with the recognition of having committed a sin.
When I was outed as gay to my family, I was living overseas and working on my Masters degree in Astrophysics. Needless to say, I was already under a lot of stress, even before dealing with my family keeping me up ti
Tickle Torturing Michael Part 5Sometimes I absolutely hate the cold weather. You get stuck inside trying to stay warm and not do anything. But sometimes, that's not a bad thing. Michael loves playing in the snow and being cold for some reason. And It had its consequences. One morning, as everyone was leaving the house Michael got up and said that he was sick. My dad gave him some special cold medicine that I never heard of. My dad said it wouldn't put Michael to sleep it would just drain him of all his energy. And since I had the day off I would help Michael "get better".Tickle Torturing Michael Part 510 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
So a couple hours pass and I'm sitting on the couch watching tv when I get a text from my dad asking me to give Michael some more medicine. Michael had kept the cup in his room so I walked into the room. Michael was laying in bed wide awake. I told Michael I was going to get him more medicine and then asked him to hand me his cup. Michael grunted and his arm moved very slowly to the cup. When his arm was about halfway there he just let his arm fall

By far, the highest frequency for this haplotype falls among the Hazara, a minority in Pakistan of mixed Mongol and
Indo-Iranian origin. The third highest freqnency falls among the Basques. A genetic (as well as a linguistic) similarity
has been reported between the Basques and certain people of the Caucasus, and this haplotype may be a manifestation
of that similarity.
This haplotype might have either a western or an eastern origin in anyone who carries it - but these groups are not necessarily
related. The greatest likelihood is that the matches among the Hazara are the result of convergence with a Central Asiatic
haplotype belonging to haplogroup "R".
Since the most of the other high frequencies here fall in such places as Northern Spain, Ireland, England, Austria, the Rhineland
and The Netherlands, this haplotype may well have come to Britain with prehistoric Iberian migrants or with a later wave of Celtic
settlement from Central Europe.

Making Enemies - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed Before I dive deep into the depths of the potential claws that may consume me over this, I must emphasize that I do not support the patriarchy, no more than I would support a matriarchy. I support gender equality, and I may need to elaborate on what that means. I see no reason for men to get paid more than women. I see no reason for women to be unable to breastfeed in public (not to mention I find having to breastfeed in a bathroom wholly unsanitary.) I feel like we're past the age in society where it makes any "sense" (loosely stated) to continue these archaic concepts.Making Enemies - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed2 hours ago in Editorial More Like This
Now, to the meat of my discussion. I do not support special treatment any more than this. I have been watching this whole Gamergate thing explode, and just continue to explode, like some sort of self-righteous star full of passionate, misplaced energy. Special treatment is the opposite of equality. As a white male, I do not want to be considere
2 BurgersI today got a phone call from the Indian digital arts institute in Bombay, they were eager to get me rejoin the left out course. They have called me often in the recent past, after I stopped attending classes without a notice. I joined that course in summer 2012, when I was in deep friendship with Petra. Prior to joining that course I had thought that was the best life offers, having a girl friend to chat to, I was content and developing myself casually in 3d art. My 3d skills were mediocre and I used to make feeble small, simpler designs. Still I was relatively more virgin in mind and at peace. I did not expect anything more or beyond from Petra or my life, I had no aim where I was heading, but always had heaps of digital art tutorials to learn from, and an ever looming dream of someday finishing all the course material I had in my simple singularity and silent life.2 Burgers13 hours ago in Letters More Like This

Body Image - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed Eating disorders horrify me. When my sister was younger (honestly, I still feel this way) I feared she would become anorexic or bulimic. I know that there is a lot of pressure to look this impossible way. I think Photoshop is a wonderful tool that is horribly abused in modern society. We don't need to hide that extra weight. Verily, for example shows that women look great without this faking it. Sure, culture prefers skinnier than necessary, instead of accepting people for what their healthy weight is. Some people are naturally going to be heavier than others. It sucks, but that's how it is. No reason to go enforcing that image on anyone else.Body Image - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed1 hour ago in Editorial More Like This

Perceiving anything but freedomAbout a week ago a Mandela tribute sculpture was unveiled: stainless steel Ray Ban Wayfarer glasses titled “Perceiving Freedom”.Perceiving anything but freedom12 hours ago in Editorial More Like This
A few days after that, these massive glasses ignited the grass it lies on because physics did its thing of refracting light through the lens. Quite honestly, it should have just burnt down.
The sculpture is strategically positioned on the Sea Point promenade to have a direct view to Robben Island, where Mandela spent most of his 27 year imprisonment. The sculpture was inspired by a picture of Mandela wearing the famous frames, and intends to inspire South Africans to have a clear view on freedom as Mandela did. This sculpture not only fails to achieve this intended purpose, but trivialises what Mandela’s message.
In Tom Eaton’s post for TimesLIVE, he provides a much needed context on the inspiration photo. This photo was taken o

Aerosmith Rocks Review:
Welcome to my very first album review, and we're going off with a great start with one of my personal favorite albums of all time, Aerosmith Rocks. Back then at 1976, rock music was the cat's meow and rock bands were actually hard-core, even the band I am going to review... Aerosmith, because how much I fuckin' love this album, I have the CD, original and 180-gram vinyl editions and maybe I would like to get the cassette, but enough talk, let's start.
Track 1: Back in the Saddle:
Nice, wild tune to kick your ass to the very start. It has a speical charm I like in it..... Steven Tyler's screeching of "I'm Back", the guitar which is actually a Fender Bass VI that sounds growly just fits the tune epically! It was a radio highlight and damn it was worth it! 10/10
Track 2: Last Child:
We start to slow down, but we're not stopping just yet! Last Child is one hell of a funky song, not only it's an awesome song with catchy lyr
