TRON LEGACY is a 6 (Yes, I am being nice.)


In all honesty the new Tron Legacy movie is a 4. But Daft Punk gives it that plus 1.5 rating boost and the fact that it is TRON gives it a plus .5 Oldskool rating boost as well.
As for the story, Wait have you seen the original Tron movie right? O.K. well that didn't make any sense either. So let's just skip it all together. (^.^)/ So to sum things up and keep it short, had this movie just been about the light cycles and light planes battles and it would have been 1,000,000 times better. Oh and the vehicle sticks were the coolest things in the movie by far! I really expected more visually from Hollywood and Disney. But the 3D aspect of this movie along with swarm of flicks is garbage to say the least or as Jeff Bridges put it, "It was really messing with my Zen man."

DJ Shadow - Midnight In A Perfect World



Usually, Youtube comments are complete and total shit but SupaDuck0 got it so right this time:

"This video is brilliant, but for me, it'll always be second to listening to it walking around or riding a bus, cos as good as the video is, the music is too good to have its mood captured on film."

OTAKOOL 7 Research

Originally, I was looking for a track to put on the next up-in-coming OTAKOOL mix. So I youtube-ed one of my favorite Chill-Out Artist Iain Bellamy and I found this great CG character walk-thru demo through video by JADENEindia. Graphically, for a one person job (I believe) this is fantastic. The song choice and the atmosphere of the environment compliment each other very well. I wish that it loaded a bit more smoothly at times though and I don't think there is enough emphasis on the character and the character's emotions. Then there are a couple of blatantly bad camera angle choices in my opinion but one very good thing about these CG demos is that nothing is final. The artist could go back and move the cameras around again and re-render the project. But overall, THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO I HAVE EVER SEEN FOR THIS SONG!

Head Of The State - Baracka Flacka Flames



I don't live in America now. But sometimes, I really have to sit back and wonder. "WTF?! is America doin' yo'?!" Especially when videos like this popping up! This video is so damn funny and so wrong at the same time. It's ridiculous. My stomach muscles are so tight from laughing!

Musically, the beat is lava hot and the energy behind it is off the scales. Lyrically, "I brought you change Nigga?! What the Fuck you thinking Nigga?!" Even for a spoof video, that's a tight hook. "Where you at? Where's yo' trap? You ain't hood nigga?!" For a brag rap or diss line that bar is solid as hell. So you gotta give Waka Flacka his props for the original song - Hard In The Paint. But this Head of State video has a higher level of production and it's so visually absurd that you gotta tell someone else.

DEEP 6 Tournament (Japanese Wrasslin'!)



This past weekend I was asked to take some pictures at my friend's judo tournament and it was a very interesting shoot to say the least. This wasn't my first sporting event shoot but it was my first shoot at a jujitsu tournament. The venue was a small gym / ring located near a small lumber yard near Shin-Kiba station in Chiba. The picture above is my favorite shot! As you can see, the gym/ring itself was super dark and we were asked not use flash photography, so I had to set my camera at the highest ISO and hope for the best. Below are a couple of shots from the event! But the one above just says it all!

Well what do you do when you have over 1,000 pictures on your HD?! Well I don't know about you but I make music videos out of them bad boys and then slap 'em up on Youtube & Facebook FTW!

Earlier this year, I took around 1,000 plus photos during FRXIII. I posted some the best ones on FACEBOOK for people tag themselves in leaving me with hundreds of photos left over. But a couple of days ago, I was listening to "We're Fly" by Tonya Morgan and the line "If they ain't known', Well then we show'em!" just stuck with me. The chorus lines explains Final Round very well. We are bunch of grass root gamers. Who do it for the love and grind every time!

Do We Still Need Tokyo Game Show? - By Calibur

Another year and the Tokyo Game Show has come and gone. I got to be there from dawn till dusk on Thursday and Saturday. One day for the press and one day for the public. Press days are always great with the short lines and general professionalism from all involved, but there is something to be said about public days, especially this year where you have TGS sharing its event with Tougeki, the largest video game tournament in Japan. Oh yeah, and cosplayers, hot and unhook, show up on public days too. Despite all the fun that I had general reception to the regular attendees I talked to was “meh.” Is that a bad sign of things to come for the Tokyo Game Show event?

The first day of the event was pretty quite. Not many people there at
all, which is fantastic for trying out awesome games like Vanquish



and MvC3



but the energy really wasn’t there and neither were the big announcements. Cool game trailers and news were leaked out later in the week which I think is a good idea if you want to have people attend everyday, but it still left the first day feeling flat. I
guess I should add that it was pouring rain that Thursday so making the hike to the game show early would have ranked somewhere between staying-in-bed and going-to-work-at-a-job-you-hate. Low attendance on Thursday would surprise no one who looked out the window that day.

Saturday was when the craziness started. The Tougeki game tournament was gearing up and you had a pretty sizable group of people who wouldn’t have usually flown in for TGS in the crowd. Players from all over the world who have had no contact with Japan get to be bombarded with all the stereotypes they’ve always had; Video monitors, latex wearing hot Asian chicks, chibi characters, cosplayers and the mobs with the cameras who follow them.

That brings me to my next point. What is TGS now? Obviously, it’s supposed to be an expo displaying hot new games, applications, and technology on the horizon, but thanks to inexpensive digital media like downloadable demos and Youtube news doesn’t pack the punch it used to. Anyone who is interested enough to go to TGS already has a way to get previews for what they are really interested in. Games are the last thing on the list because you can do it at anytime but taking photos of girls and guys (mostly girls) wearing your favorite cult anime/videogame costume is something that can be only done at special times and places and there is a huge subculture of amateur photographers who fill TGS for this reason alone.

These little perks are what’s going to keep the Tokyo Game Show relevant in the future. Side events like Tougeki and fancy dress get-togethers can serve like a trojan horse to bring a knowledgeable audience in and give developers a chance to show off their stuff first hand so their products can make an impact the way they are really supposed to. If they expand on these side events like I’m recommending than you could have a situation where the Tokyo Game Show videogames are just an after thought the same way actual music on MTV is. Either way, all of these concerns will be gone when the next generation of consoles come out. The Playstation 4’s and the XBO720 whatevers are going to have both the press and the public both drooling over the next big thing, and when those consoles make their debut, the sideshows of TGS are going to be on the back burner the way I think they are supposed to be. At least that year.

Soul Infusion (The Eatin' Was Good Son!)

Popular Rating 9.2/10! The promoters of this event did a fantastic job, the dance floor was on fire, the DJ's/Singers definitely put it down and the cooks. . . . THE COOKS KILLED IT! Anytime, you can drink, dance and eat Soul Food to your heart's content in Japan is a good damn day. The downside, I found the venue to be a bit small,l especially on the patio. But the food wasn't out there. . . So whatever. LOL!

In conclusion, if you are in Tokyo and you get invited to a SOUL INFUSION Party, you betta try to put yo' ankles in it!

Rabbit Sticker in Roppongi


I have been hunting these stickers for about 3 year now! So now, I just gonna blog about it!

So there is some dood or doodette posting these crazy rabbit stickers all over Tokyo. So every time I see one, I try to take a picture of it. All and all, I have had a blast collecting them and this is the first red one I've seen. I know this seems kinda nerdy but It's kinda like a real life video game for me.

This one is on a mail box near the police station on the walk towards Roppongi Hills.

Damn, I love this shit!

2010 Tokyo Game Show (Meh)



Honestly, all I did yesterday was play MVC3. (Which was my one and only true goal.) The game looks fantastic but it plays nothing like MVC2. Which isn't a bad thing, it's just different. The button layout threw me way off but reminded me of TVC. Also, I had no idea that you needed to hold the button down to switch out characters. I will get some more MVC3 in today while hoping and praying that CAPCOM will let us play with Tron Bonne!

After all that, I'm gonna play some Vanquish. Which is a very stylish looking Lost Planet / Gears of War type game on CRACK made by Prism who are responsible for that gem known as Bayonetta.

So besides those 2 games, that's about it. Nothing else caught my eye except the women. (Thank heaven for them.)

Seriously, If you didn't get a chance to make it to 8-4's Pre-TGS Party @ VANITY. BUDDY, IT SUCKS TO BE YOU. VANITY was an extremely plush venue and the boozes and viddles were on the house (For a limited time). In short, 8-4 threw one helluva of party with a great musical assist by DJ MILKY D to network and get your international video game swag on. So if you ever decide to throw a Video Game Industry Party in Tokyo, YOU NEED TO TALK TO THE CATZ AT 8-4!
