IT IS YOUR DESTINY...2!

4 min read
So I thought I'd take a stab at this for D2

Question 1: Favourite planet
Nessus. Titan seems cool but pretty small, though I'm sure it'll be expanded when Eris picks a fight with Savathun for us...:p

Question 2: Favourite person to talk to in the Tower and the Reef
I'm adding the other locales, and hands down it's FAILSAFE!

Question 3: Favourite Class(Hunter, Titan or Warlock)
I like the new utility Warlocks have for activities like Raid with the Rifts.  I enjoy being a Hunter, but feel they kinda got left behind.  Locks have rifts, and Titans now have a friggin MULTI-fist of Havoc!

Question 4: Favourite Race (Human, Exo or Awoken)
I still want to learn the history of the Exo


Question 5: Favourite subclass (Bladedancer, Strike and etc.)
Hunter - Nightstalker  
Warlock - Stormcaller
Titan - Sunbreaker

Question 6: Favourite mission
...THE FEELS in the opening missions of the D2 campaign!!!

Question 7: Favourite music in a mission
The last room before the boss in the Pyramydion is BEYOND EPIC.  Eris needs to throw her rock at whoever decided NOT to put it on the OST album

Question 8: Favourite boss fight
Ghaul was...not as epic as it could have been. And I HATE that sneaky f*#%$er in the Exodus aft.  I'd say Savuthun's song is my fave

Question 9: Favourite Strike
See above

Question 10: Completed any Raid
Made it to Calus but we couldn't quite pull it off yet

Question 11: Favourite primary type(Handcannon, Scout and etc.)
Scout...or auto rifle with the War Rig

Question 12: Favourite special type
Well, these questions will have to be changed around a bit with the new weapons system.  I'm not keen on SMG's except the exotic one.  As a general rule, I use whatever to complement my primary (IE, primary scout, secondary auto).  The Number and Uriel's Gift are MEAN in PVP.

Question 13: Favourite heavy type(Machine gun, Rockets and etc)
Generally situatuonal - sniper or Shotty/sword for long or close range.

Question 14: Favourite Exotic Primary
Sweet Business paired with the War Rig is AMAZING.  Vigilance Wing otherwise

Question 15: Favourite Exotic Secondary
Sunshot, ever since the Beta!

Question 16: Favourite Exotic Heavy
I'm really not a huge fan of the Wardcliff Coil, though instakilling a mission boss by knocking him off a ledge was freakin sweet.  Merciless for me.

Question 17: Favourite enemy race
I'm enjoying the Hive in this game, look forward to more content with them

Question 18: Least favourite enemy type
Friggin insta-shielding HOBGOBLINS!

Question 19: Pro-Crucible or Anti-Crucible
Fuck the Trials of the Nine, other than that it's okay.

Question 20: Favourite Tower Faction(Dead Orbit, Future war cult and etc.)
...the one I agree with most is FWC.  IMO, you can't run from the Darkness forever (D.O.) and rebuilding the golden age needs to wait until we're not facing imminent extinction (N.M.).  Too bad their color scheme is bleh. (Verbatim from first time doing this)

Question 21: Favourite DLC so far
N/A

Question 22: Do you want space battles
I didn't think about it as much till TTKs opening cinema...now, YES!

Question 23: Current piece of equipped exotic armor
Hunter - Orpheus Rig
Lock - Crown of Tempests
Titan - War Rig

Question 24: Favourite Exotic Weapon of all time
Gonna give it to Sunshot

Question 25: Favourite Exotic Armor of all time
The only reason I feel Hunters weren't COMPLETELY crapped on is the ORPHEUS RIG, it's AMAZING!!!

Question 26: Favourite Element(Void, Solar, Arc)
Void.

Question 27: Favourite Class Item(Bond, mark, cloak)
...nothing is really jumping out at me, and I've yet to find a Titan Mark I REALLY like...

Question 28: When you got the game
Release morning, bay-be!

Question 29: What was your favourite part about the game
I marked out when I saw the screens documenting my past history and acheivements, especially ones I'd done with my friends and not LFG randos

Question 30: Will you play Destiny for the next 10 years
We're in Year...4, now?  I know that D2 is in a drought, but I'm not jumping ship anytime soon

It is our DESTINY!

5 min read
Picked up from dulcamarra.deviantart.com

Question 1: Favourite planet
Venus...it looks awesome, and to be honest seeing it the first time made me feel kind of sad that barring some major jump in technology/visit from aliens, I'll never live to see humanity spread out among the stars.

Question 2: Favourite person to talk to in the Tower and the Reef
Eris Morn, especially during the Festival of the Lost.  She's like the "grumpy cat" of the Vanguard :D

Question 3: Favourite Class(Hunter, Titan or Warlock)
Tough one.  Have to have love for my original class, the Hunter.  Titans seem to be IMO the best balanced...great jumping AND able to really wreck shite.

Question 4: Favourite Race (Human, Exo or Awoken)
Awoken and Exo are cool because of their mystery.  For a while I ran around in full VoG armor as my Exo Titan, hoping to freak out other people that think the two races are related...:p

Question 5: Favourite subclass (Bladedancer, Strike and etc.)
Stormcaller...Unlimited POWERRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

Question 6: Favourite mission
Scourge of Winter.  The only thing better than kicking a Kell in the bollocks is doing it in his own throne room!

Question 7: Favourite music in a mission
"End of the Line" from the Sepiks strike, and the aforementioned Scourge of Winter mission.  The first time it refers to YOU, as you're trapped by waves of enemies.  The second time, it refers to the Kell you're going to assassinate!

Question 8: Favourite boss fight
As an Xbox player, I'm finally enjoying both the Undying Mind and the Psion Flayers. 


Question 9: Favourite Strike
Shield Brothers.  "They brought a tank to a gun fight!" 

Question 10: Completed any Raid

I've done Crota's End and Vault of Glass...sadly not done King's Fall yet.

Question 11: Favourite primary type(Handcannon, Scout and etc.)
I really love Handcannons, but Scouts are really all around more versatile IMO. 

Question 12: Favourite special type(Sniper, shotguns and etc)
I suck at sniping, especially at PVP.  Fusion rifles don't do it for me.  I really love shotguns, but as I found out while trying to solo last week's Nightfall (Dust Palace), it sucks to NEED a sniper and not have one on you. :p

Question 13: Favourite heavy type(Machine gun, Rockets and etc)
SWORD.

Question 14: Favourite Exotic Primary

I came to LOVE Bad Juju while needing to get void kills as a Hunter and Solar kills as a Titan for the sword quest in TTK. 

Question 15: Favourite Exotic Secondary
Invective!  It's like a special ammo synth that can blow enemies' heads off.

Question 16: Favourite Exotic Heavy
All hail the fallen king, the GJALLAHORN!

Question 17: Favourite enemy race
May be a cop-out, but the Taken.  So many different powers.  Taken Vandal:  "Oh hell, Guardians!  Quick, pop the bubble, POP THE BUBBLE!"

Question 18: Least favourite enemy type

...though Taken Psions are PAINS IN THE ASS with their constant replicating!

Question 19: Pro-Crucible or Anti-Crucible
I...enjoy it.  But I don't really like HAVING to do it for certain quests.  And, fuck Trials of Osiris.

Question 20: Favourite Tower Faction(Dead Orbit, Future war cult and etc.)
...the one I agree with most is FWC.  IMO, you can't run from the Darkness forever (D.O.) and rebuilding the golden age needs to wait until we're not facing imminent extinction (N.M.).  Too bad their color scheme is bleh. ;)

Question 21: Favourite DLC so far
The Taken King really ramped it up in the "story" department big-time.

Question 22: Do you want space battles
I didn't think about it as much till TTKs opening cinema...now, YES!

Question 23: Current piece of equipped exotic armor
Um....nothing on Hunter (SRL gear)
...nor Titan.
OR my Warlock ATM!  :o  I've got on my highest Light gear for decoding engrams ATM.  With the neato high light SRL gear, I've been deleting some of my Y1 exotics that have been upgraded with Y2 versions to make room...

Question 24: Favourite Exotic Weapon of all time

Icebreaker was the SHIZ, especially if you're into soloing things.  In Y1 I had one on each char (Xurned my first then kept two drops).

Question 25: Favourite Exotic Armor of all time
Knucklehead radar...so handy in so many situations.

Question 26: Favourite Element(Void, Solar, Arc)
Void.

Question 27: Favourite Class Item(Bond, mark, cloak)
All of the preorder premium class items were cool, but ESPECIALLY the Titan's - you actually have the Hammer of Sol strapped to your side!  I'm really disappointed we can't upgrade them to Year 2 values....

Question 28: When you got the game
Probably about 3 months after release.

Question 29: What was your favourite part about the game
Fooling around online with my friends...getting REKT by the whatchamacallit of Crota in the dark room on the way to the Skywatch, one guy having to go AFK in the Summoning Pits strike, but riding his Sparrow all the way down to Phogoth's room and smacking the sum'bitch right in the face with it when he returned...:D :D :D

Question 30: Will you play Destiny for the next 10 years
Possibly.  I'm liking the increasing focus on story.  I'm not thrilled with all the "time gate" stuff (Sleeper Simulant, NTTE).  I freakin LOVE SRL.  Overall I think things are looking good!

Thoughts on Jessica Jones (Netflix)

4 min read
****SPOOOILERS, DAMMIT!!!  For Jessica Jones (thank you Captain Obvious), and, uh...1984. ****

*Most importantly, someone PLEASE explain to me why Pam is apparently going to jail for what I, Jessica, and most any court could see was SELF-DEFENSE?  And why Jeri went all super-bitch at about the same time, even channeling Kilgrave of all people in absolving herself of responsibility for her ex's death???  ...Though I was hoping it might lead in to a Matt Murdock cameo.  Still I haz teh CONFUUUSED!

*...anyone else read "1984?"  My emotions were kind of similar after finishing both works.  Jessica makes out better than poor Winston, but to me it was more like she "survives" at best rather than "wins."  At the end of the day, Kilgrave is STILL just a myth to most people as best I can tell.  The number of people he's ruined is probably staggering, and without ever being able to PROVE what Kilgrave could do....they're still screwed.

*I'm so pissed at myself for....it's not even a SPOILER really, but reading that "Simpson" was actually "Nuke."  I can imagine how friggin' hard I would have marked out not knowing that, being the rare viewer who LOVES "Born Again" but is too dumb to connect the dots, hearing the iconic words...."GIVE ME A RED."

*It seems like they're reeeally stretching what constitutes a "super hero career."  Saving one little girl from being hit by a cab (albeit in a costume, of sorts :D ) and stumbling across one guy at random and saving him from more of an ass-kicking than he's already gotten?  Unless the show implies that Jess had been doing the vigilante thing for a bit longer and just chose to show this one unlucky night.

*Got no Daredevil or even Matt, but Claire was awesome.  Even MORE awesome considering that unlike in the comics where she is ACTUALLY a Doctor, Claire really is a "Night NURSE."  And a very resourceful one to be able to take care of Luke as she did.

*I was wondering why the heck people weren't mentioning the events of Age of Ultron, especially with the anti-"gifted" vibe in some eps....apparently the series is set before AoU in the Canon.

*Luke was awesome, I loved how he handled himself in the bar fight, definitely a more disciplined fighter as opposed to Jessica's brawling style.  And telling the guy who just tried (and epically failed) to cut his throat that he was drunk, he didn't see what he thought he saw.  I really, REALLY want to see some of the camaraderie between him and Iron Fist (and hopefully Daredevil and Spidey) that I saw in the Bendis/Maleev run in the Daredevil comics.

*David Tennant plays Kilgrave very well.  To put it mildly, he is a VERY BAD man!  I admit to being disappointed that IN THE END (after certain "enhancements" that they didn't go all out with the purple skin.  Hell, we have people in REAL LIFE with gray/blue skin after ingesting too much colloidal silver, and wait'll you see what Kilgrave shoots into himself....

*I got kind of a "Punisher" vibe from where the reserved protagonist finds themselves sharing living space with some very "interesting" characters (the Thomas Jane film and the Welcome Back Frank arc it borrowed from*

ETA  *poke poke*  How the heck do I edit this thing???  *Finds button for StashWriter*  Ahhh.  ....I miss the thing that lets you tell what you're eating, drinking, etc.  I wanna tell people about this hippie soda "Zevia" I'm drinking (pretty good, but I'd trade the vegan/non GMO/Gluten free part for a lower price tag, just keep the Stevia....)

CRY FOR JUSTICE

3 min read
                              scream to the heavens by zakuuhxc


^^^^  How I feel....sadly, NOT how I look....

I was a bit bummed out to find no more interest in the Justina Pelletier case here on dA than I did.  In a nutshell from myfoxboston:  "Pelletier was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease years ago – a condition causing muscle pain and weakness. Then, almost a year ago, she was admitted to Children's with the flu.

At the hospital, her parents say a different set of doctors diagnosed her with "somatoform disorder," in short, saying she suffered from a mental illness, not mitochondrial disease, and that her symptoms were psychologically induced. The hospital took her off all of her medications, Lou Pelletier said.

When her parents reportedly disagreed and asked for a second opinion, they lost custody of their daughter. DCF was called in after just four days. The parents haven't had custody since last February."

And recently the State of Massachusetts has been awarded PERMANENT custody of her!  Apparently they got all butthurt over the parents getting upset that they had KIDNAPPED THEIR DAUGHTER and WITHHELD MEDICAL CARE from her!

Unelected, malevolent and/or brainless bureaucrats are a cancer on this country, preying on people like the Pelletiers at will.  And there are so, so many other cases out there that don't "go viral" and justice is NEVER served.  And as the Pelletier case shows, even when a good portion of the country (at least those awake and wise enough not to trust the mainstream media for their news) is calling for their heads, the bureaucrats sometimes still refuse to budge.

SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

People banding together CAN make a difference!!!!  Check out the case of Adrionna Harris, Middle School student.  www.libertynews.com/2014/03/vi…

Stops classmate from cutting himself with razor.  Took the razor and threw it away.  Shitheads at the school suspend her for violating the weapons policy.  Story goes viral, people raise hell, SHITHEADS FORCED TO RELENT!

In a rather local story, a kid was bullied for carrying a "My Little Pony" backpack.  Rather than punish the bullies, the school punished the victim by telling him he couldn't bring the backpack!  The Brony found an unlikely but fierce ally in Glenn Beck, and the school is forced to find a better solution than "blame the victim." www.usatoday.com/story/news/na…

There needs to be a website or something dedicated to helping people spread the word to the world about all manner of incidents where bureaucrats abuse people, bringing the wrath of the country down on the bastards.  There's no guarantee it'll work 100% of the time, but it's been shown to be pretty darn effective.  May as well use the "information age" for something productive...

Ever feel like a relic from another time?

2 min read
Hey, it's one thing to favor a revolver, not be satisfied reading something that isn't on actual PAPER, and using an old non-smartphone.  I can live with being "behind the times" (arguably ;) ) on those counts.

But this Deviation I came across a few days ago really hammered me in the gut.  The message itself is harsh enough, but it was the culmination of a series of experiences I've had that really depressed the fuck out of me....



It's one thing for people to be ignorant of such things because they shun all things politics.  But for people to actively support it???  "For our safety, who cares - what've you got to hide" etc etc.  And the ever-winning, "you're just pissed because a black Democrat got caught doing it!"

In short...our right to privacy disappeared after 9/11...and NO ONE GIVES A FLYING FUCK!  Or at least it seems to me that more people don't give one than do.

The very thought that one day people will consider it perfectly normal to have every activity and communication monitored by some government thug...not because they have a valid NEED to, but because they CAN...

The fact that we're damn close to it NOW....(both the surveillance and the people's apathy)

Makes me wonder why I even bother sometimes.
