"Bound by your imagination..."


Posted by Eric on Monday, May 04th, 2009 in Enlightenment / Quotes

There is a video I’d like to share with you. It may be a lot to take in at first, but watch it a couple times. It’s 10 minutes, so if you watched it 3 times (get ready for the best made-up word of the month) you’d've sat through that lame episode of primetime TV you just watched. At least use your eyes to take in something enlightening, even if you don’t necessarily agree right now...

"Parents who use videogames as a babysitter shouldn’t have sex to begin with."


Posted by Eric on Wednesday, September 03rd, 2008 in Gaming Life / Quotes

The game industry has long awaited a major face like Perrin Kaplan to say something like that. For an ex-vice president of Nintendo, a line like that is a pretty huge thing. I’ve been saying that parents are to blame for kids playing violent games for years. I would expect nothing less than a standing ovation at a conference where this is even muttered under someone’s breath.

Things are a lot different than when I was growing up. Obviously you’ll hear every generation say that, but when it comes to video games there just isn’t any excuse. Cars will change, music will evolve, movies will get less intelligent and entertaining as Hollywood continues fund super smash hits like Disaster Movie, and video games...well...they’ll continue to get more real. People freak out at the sight of games like GTA or Gears of War, saying they’re too violent for our society, blah blah blah. The truth is, they’re right. When our society consists of uneducated and ignorant parents who use these crazy $400 contraptions to keep their kids out of their hair while they watch reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond and laugh it up with their fabulous friends about their fabulous lives, you can expect kids to grow up corrupted. Anyone who can’t see that by now should be shot point blank in the pupil with a Dethklok t-shirt cannon. Man that’d be brutal!

"I would encourage people who want to be creative to invite miserable circumstances."

Nicholas Gurewitch of The Perry Bible Fellowship is one talented individual. His online comic strip is apparently record-breaking. How or what records were broken I have no idea, but only because I haven’t done any research.

"I would encourage people who want to be creative to invite miserable circumstances. If you cram that brain into a dangerous situation, it will work your butt off." ~Nicholas Gurewitch

"When things are not as they seem, life is real."


Posted by Eric on Friday, May 16th, 2008 in Quotes

I’ve come to admire many of the shows on [adultswim.com] lately. The particular quote above is from a show called Assy McGee, where the main character is the lower half of a beer guzzler guy’s bod who happens to be a detective. Like many other shows on the latter half of Cartoon Network’s schedule, many characters other than the main seem to be OK with the fact that this character is, in fact, just an ass, and in more ways than one. Here’s a clip:
