Stuff

Okay, so, a couple of things.

 

First off, a little more than a month ago, Felicia Day, star and creator of the widely popular web series The Guild, announced that she indeed has plans for a 5th season of my second favorite online show (Red vs Blue comes first)! The upcoming season will begin this summer and hopefully answer some questions raised by last season’s cliff-hanger ending. Felicia Day tells Tubefilter, “Expect more characters, more color more…fast quips! I’m not sure, let me write the season first.”

I don’t really feel like I’m allowed to be excited for this, seeing as how I’m not the biggest comic book nerd, and I hadn’t even heard of Captain America before news of this movie, but since it looks just plain awesome, I decided I’m going to risk the anger of any hardcore Marvel fans. The video above is the first, full-length, Captain America trailer that was released 4 days ago. And holy crap does it look good. Definitely going to be a midnight premier for me.

Captain America comes out July22, 2011.

 

And as an extra tidbit, I decided to share a game called Hex Empire that I’ve been addicted to for years. When I have nothing but a laptop and endless hours of traveling by stuffy car, I whip this out and sink into my own little world of, well, conquering the world! The game is a bit like Risk, but different enough that it can claim that it is its own thing.

Red vs Blue Season 9!

 

ZOMG!!! It’s really happening! Like really for real! The guys at Rooster Teeth confirmed yesterday at their PAX panel that the 9th season of Red vs Blue is officially going to happen. There were a lot of indications, like the RvB PSAs, that season 9 was coming, but I never found anything from Rooster Teeth to confirm it. I was especially worried by how season 8 ended: it was a really nice and emotional finish that could have ended the whole series, as well. I would have been mad if this were the case, because, well, I don’t want to spoil anything, but just trust me, you don’t want it to end that way.

 

With this new season confirmation, Rooster Teeth showed the trailer exclusively during their panel. It was an unfinished product that they want to continue working on before they officially release it to the public on April 1st, Rooster Teeth’s anniversary (this better not be an April Fools joke or I will murder someone). Of course, someone taped the trailer with her(?) video camera (there’s one in every crowd), so you can catch the really low quality and shaky video of the season 9 trailer here (I love how you can hear her crying after they announce it). Rooster Teeth probably won’t like their work in progress on YouTube, so better watch it fast before it’s removed! According to the trailer, the new season starts this summer! Best summer vacation ever!

 

What is the deal with these shaky cameras, anyway? How hard is it to hold a light weight object in the air for 5 minutes? Some people hold it like they’ve just drank ten 2-liter bottles of Mountain Dew after inhaling a box of caffeine pills! The earthquakes are in Japan, guys, come on!

Just What Do They Do All Day?!

No, this post is not about Congress…

 

I recently recalled a conversation I had with my friend Diandra a while ago about non-nerds. She was sleeping over at my house and we had just spent numerous hours on my couch watching anime. I don’t remember who brought it up first, but we began to wonder what normal people do at sleepovers (this is a completely innocent conversation, so I don’t want to see any dirty comments about what you wish you could do with your friends at “sleepovers”). I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to a sleepover and didn’t do something geeky. We  have ventured a little from anime and gravitated toward video games—always doing something nerd-related. After we finally decide to go to bed, we stay up even later talking about plans for future gaming or our opinions on the latest Rooster Teeth video.

 

Non-nerds probably make up for the lack of something interesting to discuss by going to the theater or bowling. But when they’re at home, and they’ve already watched their gag-inducing chick-flick or repetitive football game, just what do they do for the rest of the night? Talk about whose boyfriend said what for hours and hours? That must be awful! Just how much is there to say, anyway?! There’s got to be more they do with their time! Or have I put too much faith in the human race?

 

Maybe this is why I have trouble talking to people. I don’t know how to start a conversation without, “So did you hear about that new Dead Island trailer?”
