Intro to Mecha Galaxy:In the year 3299, mankind has been spacefaring for some time, to the point that permanent colonies on other worlds are no longer merely speculation and have been a fixture in our lives for many generations. What really helped kickoff the exploration of deep space though was neither the privatization of space programs in industrialized nations nor the development of nationalized space programs in industrializing ones but the discovery of certain relics of extraterrestrial origin which among other things, during the technological singularity brought about a method of achieving faster than light travel. We've gone and settled other solar systems and been from one end of the galaxy to the other. As we go out further though, exploring other galaxies and edging closer and closer to the supposed edge of our universe, stranger and stranger things are becoming facts of everyday life. Humanity on the whole is still rather a wasteful lot and the mining and cultivati
Advanced Iron Man#3:European Vacation... of Death!
Narration box: Tony Stark was a genius engineer who cured his own cancer using nanotechnology to rewrite his personal genetic code, altering his cell structure to become the fusion of man and machine known as Iron Man. That's just the tip of the iceberg though. Things for Tony have gone out of the frying pan and into the fire as he finds his company, Stark Industries, being made the target of a number of industrial sabotage attacks. Recently, at the behest of a mysterious yet familiar benefactor who Tony discovered to be his lost older brother Arno, Tony as Iron Man must investigate a series of attacks on the Italian "smart sportscar" factories of Arno and Cecilia Fabbrica that have been committed by the man turned technological monster calling itself MODOK.
It is night time. The crime scene has been cordoned off by la polizia. Tony transforms into Iron Man in an alleyway and steps over the caution tape to examin
Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2:Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2: The Coming of Kaluu.
[Narration box]: Reality as most of us know it is not the full and true reality. It is but a sliver of full on actual reality. What sets our reality true and distinct for us does not necessarily all hold true in other such planes [Show Shuma-Gorath's eye squinting]. Yet, these different realities do interact in ways that are complex. They also influence one another in ways that for the most part it would be better not to trouble yourself with. Those who did trouble themselves with it were regarded by a fearful outside as shamans, wizards, witches and sorcerers. Anytime you had whole societies that embraced this occult knowledge their own disaster usually loomed... entire "lost civilizations" have been born and died several times over yet have faded to obscurity from most history books. All that remains of those forgotten ages are a few intensely troubling occult artifacts. Talismans and o
Advanced Dr. Strange #1:Page 1:
Outside the private practice (unit A) on 177 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village an antique social calling card was picked up from the mailbox by a certain Dr. Strange.
Mordo,... the name struck a bell with Dr. Stephen Strange. Narration box: Years ago, before the old professor died, no wait, was yes, murdered by the very same name that came to mind right now. Before... back when Stephen was a medical student they had been academic rivals. He was getting licensed at a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada. They both were. Back then though the classmate's name was Karl. Stephen: If Baron Mordo or to be more accurate someone for him had mailed this note to the Sanctum Sanctorum then I doubt it could portend anything good.
Dr. Strange: "Wong, see that my remaining appointments from today's schedule are cleared and lock the doors. It would appear my old nemesis is again up to something."
Advanced Dr. Strange Premise:Stephen Strange is a moderately successful private practice psychotherapist, albeit one who for the past few years has been plagued by recurrent dreams. At first he tried to equate it to confabulation but they have gone on for so long that now he is starting to feel that perhaps they have a meaning. These dreams it turns out are actually calling him to accept the mantle of Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.
A somewhat complex man, Stephen also has to put behind him his past in Las Vegas. As a young man to pay his way through medical school (one which is a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada) Stephen worked as a stage magician in the shady performer Quentin Beck (The man who would later be known as Mysterio)'s magic show. Later Beck was caught using crime to fund his act. The resort he and Strange performed at was owned by the Maggia, so to distance themselves from him, they fired Quentin. Disgraced from the entertainment community and no longer able t

Narration Box that is shown to be J.A.R.V.I.S.: "Accessing internal memory logs. Tony Stark was a troubled engineer with drug addictions who found his health failing due to cancer... he resorted to performing an experimental procedure on himself in order to fix that but found himself transformed into the costumed hero people have taken to calling Iron Man. Lately things have been tumultuous for Stark Industries. In the midst of sabotage and espionage from Hammer and a high pressure deal with the Fujikawa group, stock prices have been both up and down quite a bit." Tony: "J.A.R.V.I.S.?! Are you podcasting that? What did I tell you about secret identities?" J.A.R.V.I.S.: "No sir! I'm sorry sir. Very good sir."

top 10 MLP: FIM episodes everyone hates but I like
10. The Show Stoppers/Hearts and Hooves Day
Why everyone else hates it: It shows how really stupid and obnoxious the CMC are.
Why I like it: As me being a not-hater of the CMC, their screwing up in those episodes was tolerable for me. Besides, them making mistakes was an important plot point for the CMC's character so that they could learn their lessons in the end.
9. Just For Sidekicks/Games Ponies Play
Why everyone else hates it: The plots were boring and uncreative, plus Just For Sidekicks was cruel to Spike.
Why I like it: I can agree that Spike got some unfair treatment in JFS, but I even if they're not episodes I'd watch again, the plots where mildly entertaining with its fair share of humorous moments, plus the introduction to some interesting characters like Ms. Peachbottom and Ms. Harshwhinny. Also, the idea of having two episodes that take place in the exact same event played back-to-back was bit of an original thing that I'd never thought I'd see
Deep Cliff #45 One Piece
Anime Review: One Piece
Hello and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff, where I listen to questions and bring you in depth answers. Today I’m doing another anime…and as you all know it’s an anime that I really like. One Piece is by far one of the best anime I’ve seen. So, if I like it so much, why am I going to do a review on it? Well…for a simple reason: It’s very underrated and underappreciated. One Piece is considered one of the “Big 5” anime…the 5 anime that are long lasting series anime with a huge following (the others being Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Bleach, and Full Metal Alchemist). However, many anime fans often say that they don’t like One Piece and for many different reasons. So the reason I’m doing this review is to do three things
1.) I want to talk about the anime and what I think is great about it.
2.) Point out some of the common arguments against it and see if they are solid.
3.) Give a definitive analy

Pirate!England X Pirate!Tomboy!Reader part 1Readers point of view
My name is (YN). My captains name is Sinbad. I'm part of the crew that none the Kamara also for stealing many things but, the thing that makes me special is that I'm a girl and I can still a great pirate. When I first met Sanbad I was just 16 year old. But normal thief in the city one of the wonders for many years since both my parents are legendary thiefs.
People would think that I would change, maybe I would be different. Well they were wrong. I was running away from the couple of guys who I stole some money from. You know the same old same old, thiefs gets money, then gets chased by a couple guys with big swords. It was basically a regular routine for me I was surprised that they haven't caught me yet. Not that I wanted to be caught. Anywho I ran into Sanbad while I was running away from the two guys with the big swords. At the time I had a small boat, it could fit like three people on it, and food and water.
And for so
SDW #7: 'Love me!' 'No thanks!' - Part 2IV. Fighting Others To Stay On Top (Ensures You Become Universally Hated)
Now we're entering irredeemable territory.
There are kind-but-misguided people who focus all of their time worrying about their number of views, friends, favorites, or accomplishments. These people may have stress issues over their work and wish to be noticed more, but they're kind people.
There are shy people who don't worry about the numbers, but worry about finding people who like them. They're hard to get close to, but if you play your cards right, they'll let you in. If something goes wrong, it may be hard to reconcile with them, but it's not impossible: because you understand them, you can clear up the misunderstanding and resume being friends.
There are also the people who worry about numbers and what people think of them, and these troubled individuals believe in "star power": that the more work they get done, the more people will like them. I already covered this in Star Power
The ISIS ProblemOkay, I admit it: Up until a few days ago, I was one-hundred percent in favor of airstrikes on ISIS. Seeing that black-and-white gunsight footage of precision guided munitions striking their gun trucks and supply depots filled me with the kind of satisfaction that can only be found in watching people you don't like get blown up. I could swear I even had a brief moment of (god forbid!) patriotic pride.
It's not like it was hard, after having seen videos of them executing civilians and prisoners of war, killing journalists who had their hands bound behind their backs, seeing headline after headline telling of broad swaths of new territory captured by the group. It's clear that ISIS is no ordinary terrorist group or militia; it's a well-organized, well-armed, and highly motivated military force with a clear objective in mind. And one that has made specific threats concerning their desire to kill Americans.
As I watched President Obama deliver a speech detailing his long-overdue strategy t

Skunk Reviews - Sonic.exe
Ready for Round One?
Sonic.exe...what can I say about it that hasn't already been said by other critics, Internet commentators, and creepypasta enthusiasts? It's an extremely problematic attempt at some kind of Lovecraftian horror, racking up numerous horror genre clichés and crafting an overall unimaginative narrative. The protagonist is unnervingly blasé about the fate of his alleged friend, and pretty much serves as a non-distinguishable everyman who's really too damn stupid to live. It sounds pretty bad just from this description, but what's the real stinker of this mess? We'll get to that.
I'll admit, when I first came across Sonic.exe last year, I was a bit disturbed by it. This was primarily because of two things: seeing my absolute favorite character, Tails, being forced to get violently murdered (not to say that I was happy about seeing Knuckles die, either), and because I’ve always been a bit disturbed by monsters with red eyes staring dir
