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 http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Skyrim which is the most comprehensive wiki I have ever seen.

Enjoy.

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-Lawson, send it

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement
