    Day 2 - Your Favorite Character

    Its hard to remember all characters from every game ever but recently I remember Jack/Subject Zero from Mass Effect and she really struck a chord with me. I loved how tough she was but if you got close to her you could see the real Jack, the one from before she had to harden herself.

    I love the fact that you find out she loves poetry and writes poetry herself and gets a pet Varren and teaches students to control their biotics. Honestly she isn’t my favorite character ever, I can promise that but she was the first one that popped into my head.

    Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.

    When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.

    The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…

    But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.

    LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK

    We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?

    image

    Did you guess yet?

    image

    If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.

    image

    Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…

    image

    Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    imageHave you guessed it correctly? Have you really?

    image

    Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”

    Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!

    This isn’t even being qeued. This is just being reblogged, because some of you still don’t understand who directed Coraline.

    finally someone put up the whole thing, tragically beautiful

    I know someone will ask, so this is from the movie Watchmen. The entire movie has nothing to do with this scene, really, considering it’s about heroes. But it is a beautiful opener. 

    If you think Watchmen had nothing to do with this scene ‘because it’s about heroes’ then you totally missed the point of the movie.

    PLATINUM SOLO ATTEMPT NUMBER ONE TIME

    I like Soloing Glacier, you can congo line it, and it is hard for them to get line of sight if they are actually following you. [I am guessing you are using the Juggernaut]

    I’ve never tried a platinum though. I kept getting kicked out of my own solos, so I was not keen on trying more than a gold.
