Of the sky and it's rim.

Picture the scene:

Surrounded on all sides you draw your enchanted long sword from it's scabbard, eying up the four bandits surrounding you for their greatest threat. You decide it's the guy with the big axe. As a side thought, you notice he's wearing a very nice Elven helm which would not only improve the defence your head recieves, but look bloody great on you.

You charge forwards, swinging your sword with all your might, taking the strongest bandit from life with one swing, though taking a blow from behind as you do. Deftly dodging another blow, you kill a second bandit as you step to the side. 

Turning to place the final two bandits in front of yourself, you hear a gutteral, bone chilling cry. It came from far too close for your personal comfort. You slowly raise your gaze, just in time to see a 40 foot long beast drop from the sky behind you, picking up one of the bandits, rising high to the sky and dropping the unfortunate luggage to the ground.

You stare in awe at the dragon, though you feel your leather greaves cling to the inside of your leg in an uncomfortably telling way. The final bandit, having gathered his wits and fled, has left you to face the dragon alone. You tighten your grip on your sword, and call upon the power you were born with. You are Dovahkiin, and you have the power of the dragons.

So, that's basically how my brain works these days. There's a game coming out on the 11th of November, and it looks incredibly good. The Elderscrolls V: Skyrim, it's called. It's the follow on from a series that's done very well for itself in the world of video games. The previous two games, Morrowind and Oblivion, have both won game of the year, and countless other awards in various fields.

They create whole worlds for you to get lost in, making anything possible. Well, I say anything, my characters always seem to have a bladder of steel, but there's some places you just don't want to go. But indeed, they are created with the rule of be who you want to be, and go do whatever you want to do. There's a main quest, but if you don't want to do the main quest, no pressure, go massacre everyone in that town over there instead. You won't be able to buy anything from the shops anymore, but hey, everything is free now.

But aye. Skyrim comes out in November, I'll be buying it. I'll be ignoring my girlfriend just to play it. Expect a whiny blog in November about how she dumped me.

For more information on Skyrim, or if you click around, the whole Elderscrolls universe I give you which is the most comprehensive wiki I have ever seen.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!
