Hello faithful readers of the greatest blog in this universe.
I am here to inform you of something I have been obsessed with for a long time. Robots.

Robots have been a deep passion of mine and I have always wanted to do something with them. Recently my passion has re-emerged for 2 reasons. Reason 1 is that for my recent birthday, I received a book on electronics and how to make them. It's a really basic book that really lays out a firm foundation on how electronics work. Reason 2 is that I recently watched the movie Real Steel. This movie was surprisingly good for a g-rated movie and also had a key aspect that me and many other geeks quite enjoy. Robot fighting.

...mmmm sweet metallic death
As I grew up i watched hours upon hours of robot wars; a televised robot fighting competition. I always watched and wished that someday I would  be able to join a competition like that. Possibly that day is not very far away and you guys will see me enter a robot into one of the very many competitions out there like the Combots competition.

I have more than a small attraction to the A.I field, and would love to be able to work there, advancing robotics in any way, until an I,Robot like advancement is made possible(minus the whole, killing and scariness, :p).

As an aside, Real Steel was really quite a good movie, so as long as you don't mind seeing a robot punch a bull in the face, or other Doomsday like people getting their robots processing unit smashed in, you will like it. There is also an endearing father-son bonding element that happens as the story progresses and Hugh Jackman makes a nice anti-hero. For those who have no idea what i'm talking about, a trailer can be found below this post. So goodbye and for my robo-friends out there,

I had originally planned on making a post talking about comics, but something very important has come up. BLIZZCON. For those who don't know what blizzcon is, it is a convention where blizzard(Diablo, WoW, Starcraft) presents what is to come in the next year. Diablo 3 looked amazing, and Heart of the swarm looked good too. Here is where I get angry. World of Warcraft is going to be having a new expansion. The Mists of Pandaria. The abomination, yes abomination, that is this expansion is great. Below is the trailer. I will continue my rant afterwards.
Ok, so... seriously right? Pandaren have been an in-house joke at Blizzard, but come on, to seriously put this in the game that people pay good money for. I almost wonder if Kung-fu Panda approached Blizzard and asked to include them. But seriously, that aside, Pandaria is this beautiful asia-like continent. WAIT!?BEAUTIFUL?, how can this be? Didn't Deathwing come and break the world, how is it Pandaria has escaped untouched. I feel like this will just alienate all the die-hard players(like myself) who have been playing since Vanilla, and they will buy it because of the level cap, but hate it. On a final note to Blizzard. Why make a race that can be Horde or Alliance. That is ridiculous to me. Give this Panda to the Alliance and give the Horde something good. FOR THE HORDE!

For those who were not able to watch blizzcon, below i present the crowning moment of the convention. 
The Diablo 3 trailer.

Woot, can't wait!

WHAt!? Already another one?

Well, I didn't want to leave you people with just an intro, so, my very first real post!(exciting). This post will be dedicated to my recent supreme obsession. Warhammer 40k. I've been playing for about a year but have only had my own army for a bit over a month. This was the game I had been wanting my whole life and just never knew about. I have a Dark Eldar army, so if you know what they are, you know what kind of person I am haha, and if you don't well, you will be able to figure that out with the aid of wikipedia(or Lexicanum) or by reading my future blogs. This is pretty much a table-top war. It is an incredibly fun, multi-faceted expensive( wallet cries sometimes) hobby. I am lucky enough to live in a city with a bunch of hobby shops as well as an amazing Sci-Fi and fantasy club at my College. Well, this has kind of been essentially me, going, OMG I love it!, but I feel that it is a great hobby but it isn't for everyone, it isn't cheap, and it sucks up pretty much most of your free time. So for people that are in short supply of these things, I suggest getting a sugar daddy(or mommy) and having them get it for you because it is just that great.

So, I am off to go and stare at my miniatures and fantasize about the ultimate carnage they will leave in their path as they gut the Imperium.


Hey everyone,
Well, I was convinced by some people that I should make a blog about stuff I like and about me. So... TA DA! This is pretty much going to me talking about things I like, the way I feel about them and how I want to get more into them. I will also attempt to write as often as possible.

I recently got into Warhammer 40k, Comics, and other things like that. I never had any really geeky friends growing up, so I never really had the chance to introduce myself to the beautiful world that is out there. The friends I did have were primarily into Video Games where my deepest passions also lie. I have a dream that one day I will collect all the video gaming systems out there, including many arcade machines, because I find retro-gaming to be inexhaustibly fun. I have very strong views on video games and the consoles that play them. I also grew up watching all those amazing DC and Marvel cartoons while growing up and to this day have a love for Spider-Man and the X-Men, as well as Batman. Anyways that pretty much my introduction to my blog hope you don't hate it and well... enjoy.
