New updates today. Yay.

So, one year ago was the big blackout. I remember exactly what I was doing at the time. I was updating this weblog, as a matter of fact, and just about to post before the power went out. Now everyone’s all like “It could happen again! Oh no!“. News flash: Who cares? It was a freak accident and didn’t have anything to do with our gluttonous consumption of power. If it happens again, then it happens. It’s not like we can do anything about it. And it’s seriously unlikely that anything was going to happen now just because it’s the one year anniversary. I know a way to save power: Turn off the freakin’ TV when annoying news people talk about this junk!

But I’m sure the major issue that is affecting everyone today is this.

Yu-Gi-Oh: The Movie!

I’m not a fan, I haven’t seen it, and I doubt I will any time soon, but I have read some of the reviews. It has the dubious honor of getting a perfect 0% score on Rotten Needless to say, all of the “reviews” are by disinterested adults. Well, you know what? Any parent who takes their child to the freakin’ Yu-Gi-Oh movie, knowing ahead of time that they’re going to hate it, deserves to have a terrible time for not taking an active interest in their children’s hobbies. I feel no sympathy for them. The reason why I bring this up is because it reminds me a lot of a similar situation that happened at around this time in the year 1986, with “Transformers: The Movie“. All of the reviews slagged that movie. Did that matter to anyone? No! It was for the fans, and only the fans understood what it was all about. And we loved it. And you know what else? 18 years later, we still do! The very same thing could happen to the Yu-Gi-Oh movie. Time will tell, but I wouldn’t doubt it. I doubt that it’ll make a lot of money, but much like Transformers it may just wind up a “classic” it its own way, despite the opinions of some boring adults.

But, Pokemon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back, now that was an awesome movie!
