My Apathy Towards American Politics

Anyone who really knows and understands me realizes that I don’t talk about politics that much. The biggest reason is that I simply don’t care. American politics have been in shambles for a while now mostly because of the way it’s become a theater of spectacle rather than something that has changed lives for the better. The convoluted rhetoric and levels of machinations are so deep that you eventually grow weary of all the lies within lies. It beats you down to the point where you feel like a dust particle just floating around while these powerful winds blow you in conflicting directions.

Yahoo Sold Off to Verizon and What It Means

Marissa Mayer arguably did her job when she finally found a willing buyer for Yahoo in Verizon. Already, Yahoo had been tossing assets overboard in trying to make themselves attractive. Even the few strategic buys like tumblr proved fruitless over time in an effort to stay independently afloat. Thus, the real exit strategy in a market like this one is the buyout. But considering that the end price tag was $4.83 billion, one must ask if this was worth it?

World of Warcraft: Unsubbed and Ecstatic!

I ended up getting sick again over this weekend and didn’t finish up a few pre-pre-patch items on my agenda yesterday. I was sad knowing that the game was going to nerf a bunch of gold making outlets from Garrison missions. But I had been reading notes and general forum complaints periodically just to keep up to date with anything major. Decided to login just to see if there was anything worth checking out. Pretty much the moment I got in, I lost all desire to play.

World of Warcraft: The Pointlessness in Class (Re-)Design

Since being a player of World of Warcraft from Wrath of the Lich King, I became accustomed to the idea of how Blizzard will revamp classes each expansion. It’s natural in any RPG where as characters increase in power, so do the way they behave. In an expansion, that would mean adding abilities to show that growth. However, the way Blizzard has handled class changes is absolutely befuddling and extremely frustrating to the point where you really have to wonder where people’s heads are in making these decisions.

X-Men: Why The Movie Franchise is Failing

Although I haven’t seen the new X-Men movie yet, I don’t have an incredible desire at this point. From most reviews, it’s pretty much a meh movie. I wasn’t impressed with most of the cast choices when they were on the previous year’s Comic Con panel (Jubilee and Cyclops by far were the worst). But for the most part as long as Bryan Singer is in charge, I feel that this movie will continue to strike out as nothing more than a popcorn flick and a failure as a franchise in the hearts of X-Men fans.

Game of Thrones: What Will Euron Greyjoy’s Role be in Season 7?

In season 6, Euron Greyjoy made a pretty quick, but critical impact upon arriving, slaying his brother Balon and later claiming the Iron Islands for himself. As his niece and nephew flee to join Daenerys’ forces, Euron instructs the rest of the Iron Born to construct him a fleet of a thousand ships. From that point, his story ends in the season, leaving him in a peculiar place. What will he do in season 7?
