Can you use cure, mummy?

Or don’t get hit next time?


With Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn being released just a short while ago, I have some what got back into playing a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) on a casual scale and as per normal I pick a healer as I prefer them over the others.

After playing the first few dungeons with little no problems and making a few in-game friends within the nice community that the Moogle server has to offer – I started to pick up again something that I learnt in Final Fantasy XI: that the healer seems to be the “mother” of the overall group.

Losing sight

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.

Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you.

Political Correctness has made us racist

I am sure everyone has heard of the term “political correctness” but if you have not it is basically a term used for all the bullshit people say you must do when really no really gives a shit. I am sure you have noticed in the media you will always hear people call a “different coloured” skin person a “African American” although the person may actually have been born in Europe but hey, political correctness means we must apply a Government approved label to everyone.

So while we have our African-American what do you think we call “white coloured people” these days?

Caucasian, British, Irish, American or well whatever said person comes from is normally the answer. Think back for a few minutes when you last filled in a Government issued form, applied for a job or hell even ordered something online today you will always see a bit where it asks about skin colour and yes really you do on Government forms. Quite a funny logic when you see those forms are to “help” the person reading it to make a choice so they are not racist because having to allow X amount of people who apply to something have to be “non-white” is not racist at all.

… so we survived Doomsday 2012

... so we survived

If you are reading this then you have access to the World Wide Web so listen up. We are the last few of the human race that has survived just like the Mayan said would happen. As you know either a black hole, the Sun blew up, Planet X hit us, zombies has returned, Jesus is here or the Internet isn’t working and civilization is on the edge of dying completely.

So the first thing you got to remember is to find a place to stay. Remember the most important thing to find is to get access to the World Wide Web so you can post online that you survived. The second thing is to want to make sure you take as many photos as you can of any weapons, any food caches you have online so people know it is safe to come to you.

Comments are a pointless relic

Does anyone even care?

Does anyone even care?

As one of the millions of bloggers I have always wished for people to comment and get involved in a discussion but like a few other bloggers the discussion that relates to the things I write about is being discussed on another website and not my own and again like other bloggers I have tried to get them involved on here.

The more I think about this the more I come to the understanding that comments on most blogs is actually pointless for a few reasons. The first is simple – most people when they create a blog they are expecting to create a community when people will discuss on the subject. That is fine for some blogs but a blog like mine people visit to enjoy the content and then go on about their lives and if they enjoyed the content then more often than not they will post it on a forum somewhere they often visit and discuss it with “like-minded people” to them.

Happy Hanukkah!

Yes, I am aware there was no actual article today. I was meant to write one but I completely forgot or to be actually honest, I was lazy to do so.

So Happy Hanukkah. For those that wish to learn more about Hanukkah, there is a good article on Snat’s Blog Archive: Hanukkah – The Festival of Lights.

I hope everyone has a good Hanukkah and I will be back in the New Year with new rants, new reviews, new PHP tutorials. I will however be uploading the final parts of Final Fantasy VI Advance (excluding Dragon’s Den etc) and one more Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure and if you are lucky I may do a end of year special video but I doubt it will be with Popmanw this time.
