Reasons Never to WriteYou’ll want someone exotic and marry a Romanian. He’ll tell you to dye your hair and you’ll do it, then make chewing on its multicolored strands a habit. You’ll kiss him once and say he tastes like wine. Wine, no? he’ll say with a grin. Only gentlemen drink wine. Leave him because you won’t like cliches.
You’ll find a shadow behind a counter (because that’s the only way to describe him). You’ll watch him clashing silverware around in drawers like cold piles of bones, and he’ll give you a free slice of key-lime pie and say it’s the best in the state. You’ll lick up its tanginess on the prongs of your fork and decide that it’s definitely not, but you won't pull away from his eyes that remind you of your favorite crayon. Then he’ll look you up and down and say, another? You’ll decide to love him because anyone worth loving is worth a free slice of key-lime pie. You’ll make him kiss you even whe

Art, Criticism, Suppression, and SpongeBob
Lately, the series SpongeBob SquarePants has been rather lackluster. It suffered from massive seasonal rot, and resulted in a Family Guy-esque tendency to overindulge itself on disturbing content and character derailment. Although, I have heard that Season 9 shows signs of improvement. I’ll have to check that out at some point. That said, there are quite a few episodes I missed due to that loss of interest. One of them came to my attention as it was reviewed by TheMysteriousMrEnter (or Mr. John Enter) as part of a list of episodes that showcased Patrick Star’s derailment from a lovable oaf into a thoughtless ass. This episode, entitled “The Googly Artiste”, reminded me a lot of an earlier episode, “Artist Unknown”. From there, I started to take a look at how both episodes relate to a trio of themes: what art is, how criticism comes into play, and how artistic capabilities are suppressed. It is interesting where a review can take you, is
LOK: The Ultimatum Review
Hello everyone. Well, after last week’s exciting episode, does today’s episode manage to keep that momentum going? Let’s find out in this review!
What I Liked
It was pretty cool seeing Mako and Bolin’s family once again, but the surprising stand out role here was Yin, their grandmother. She had several surprisingly funny but also emotional moments.
For the funny, the first standout is when she meets Korra and Asami. I admit, it was strange that she initially didn’t seem to think much of Korra – an admittedly paranoid worry came to mind, if you know what I mean...- butshe seemed to quickly get over that, and it led to a hilariously awkward moment with them three and Mako. Kinda nice to see the creators making fun of their past...well, ‘dabbling’ into romance.
Oh, and let’s not forget her last scene. Everyone’s runs off to do something important, but Yin? ‘I’m

OH, SCRAP YOU, CN, YOU KILLED THE TITANS!
THIS SHOW SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!
Written by Tohokari-Steel)
Steel sighed in irritation before looking up, “Once upon a time, there was a show called Teen Titans. Along with Spider-Man, this was the thing that helped shape my view on superheroes. I only saw most of the first two seasons, but they had comedy, drama, memorable characters, and some really memorable stories. So, I went into a bit of a funk when I heard that it ended, in the words of T.S. Elliot, not with a bang, but w
SithVamp Reviews: Death to Smoochy
(Dedicated to Robin Williams (1951-2014))
Welcome to another episode of SithVamp Reviews… We’ve all been shocked by the recent death of the awesome and talented actor Robin Williams. It’s a really great loss to all of us. He was such an amazing guy: he could be funny and serious, and he starred in many movies, like Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, Jumanji, Aladdin, Good Will Hunting and the live-action Popeye musical. Today, I’m gonna pay a tribute to Mr. Williams by reviewing one of his movies: a movie I personally like, but everyone else seems to hate: Death to Smoochy.
Death to Smoochy came out in 2002. It was directed by Danny DeVito, who also plays in the film. Anyway, one of the movie’s main characters is Randolph Smiley, aka Rainbow Randolph, played by Robin Williams. Randy is a successful, but greedy kids’ show host, much like Krusty the Clown from the Simpsons. One night, Randy sits in a restaurant, when two people walk in and they ask
Action: Action RPing is probably the most basic of the styles. Normally denoted as *text* or -text-, action is generally done in the first person but can vary between RP’ers. Action RPs are often really minimal and straight forward.

My Thoughts on Transformers Beast Wars
I began to watch another Transformers cartoon series: Beast Wars. This show is kind of a continuation of the G1 series, and it takes place centuries after the Autobot-Decepticon Wars. The Autobots and the Decepticons are now both extinct, they are now replaced with the Maximals (descendants of the Autobots) and the Predacons (descendants of the Decepticons). Both the Maximals and the Predacons crash-land into a primitive planet (probably prehistoric Earth), which is full of Energon crystals, and because of the high Energon content of the planet, the Transformers can only stay in their robot modes for a limited amount of time.
The first Maximals to crash into the planet are Optimus Primal (Beast mode: Gorilla), Cheetor, whose probably the youngest Maximal, (Beast mode: Cheetah), Rattrap, the wise-ass, (Beast mode: Rat), Rhinox, the medic/inventor (Beast mode: Rhino) and Dinobot, the hotheaded one (Beast mode: Velociraptor). The latter was formerly a Predacon. However, as the show goes o
The Giver: Movie Review
The Giver: Movie Review
Based off a children’s book of the same name (when the young adult genre of novels did not yet exist), “The Giver” is about a society that has done away with memories of the past, emotions, and color to keep people from feeling hate, jealousy, and envy. Jonas (played by Brenton Thwaites: Oculus, The Signal, Maleficent) has become old enough to be assigned to a job in the community, but he doesn’t seem to fit for any job specifically. He is given the job Receiver of Memories. He is given all the memories of the past from the previous Receiver of Memories: the Giver (played by Jeff Bridges: True Grit, King Kong (1976), The Big Lebowski, Iron Man) and all the emotions so that he can help guide the community with his knowledge of the past. But Jonas realizes that the people of the community is missing out on all the good emotions and doing terrible things for the good of “sameness”.
