My name is James, I'm an artist and design graduate living in Ireland.

Presently 22 years old, among other things I love art, video/computer games, books, comics, films and TV series, a mountain of other nerdy things, collect pokemon cards and revere science above all else. My hobbies include doing art, reading, going to the gym, playing computer games and collecting pokemon cards.

Concerning myself in slightly more detail, I like many things…as, I'm told, do most people. I'm extremely fond of fiction, primarily science fiction and fantasy, with Doctor Who and The Lord of the Rings being my two favourite examples of both of those, although Steven Moffat is currently doing his best to thoroughly destroy the former. Chief among my interests is Pokemon, which is probably my most favorite thing ever, having been with it from the beginning and having a frightfully large pokemon trading card collection. Few things have brought me as much joy as Pokemon has over the years.

My other serious interests are science, in particular the areas of biology, natural history, evolution, zoology and nuclear power, which I am very,very much in favour of, especially the aim to achieve commercial fusion power since that would be a godsend for the environment. These subjects have always fascinated me more than anything else. In addition to this I have always adored art, particularly illustration and even more specifically, concept art, the likes of which is done for movies and video games, and hope one day to get a job related to this…I really, really hope.

I get constant headaches and am easily infuriated by the simplest of things, so in a sense I suppose I'm like some sort of crossbreed of Donald Duck and a Psyduck.

I started this blog as an experiment, a tentative foray into being sociable…but on the internet so I don't actually have to be sociable in person because that is very scary.

I mainly post stuff relating to Pokemon, Feminism, Science and Art, but also a ton of other random shit from time to time just because I feel like it, and by 'from time to time' I of course mean, 'very often'.

Now for the super mature and important details:

My favourite pokemon are Donphan, Nidorino, Nidoking, Steelix, Psyduck and Cloyster

My favourite super-heroes are (in this order): Superman and Spider-Man (tied in first place), Captain Marvel (the 'Shazam!' one), Captain America and Wonder Woman

My favourite super-villains are Carnage, Venom, Magneto and Doctor Octopus

My favorite non-super hero/super-villain characters are: Dr. Cortex, Crash Bandicoot, Dingodile, Dr. Eggman, Godzilla, Kroenen, Darth Vader, DCI Gene Hunt, Goku, The Daleks, Zim, Dr. Nefarious and Captain Quark

My favourite TV series are Doctor Who, Futurama, Pokemon, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Adventure Time, Elementary, Invader Zim, Blackadder, Breaking Bad, Life on Mars (the proper one not the American one), House and Ultimate Spider-Man

My favourite films are Godzilla (2014), Spirited Away, Star Wars Episodes I - VI, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Kung-Fu-Panda movies, The Croods, Monsters University, Man of Steel and Captain America: The First Avenger (there are many more but those are the main ones)

My favorite books are The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games trilogy and the Harry Potter series, as well as tons of science books

My favourite toy is Lego

My Favourite computer games are the Pokemon gameboy/colour/advance/DS and 3DS RPGs, Lego Racers (the original one not the second one), Minecraft, The Ratchet and Clank series, Fallout 3, The Bioshock series, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and V: Skyrim, several of the Sonic the Hedgehog games, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and (most of) the Crash Bandicoot series, specifically, the first three games (especially 2), Crash Bash and Crash Twinsanity. Don't even talk to me about the horrendous new ones…

And that's about it! :D

[Please Watch/Listen & Signal Boost] Man Arrested While Picking Up His Kids: ‘The Problem Is I’m Black’ | The Atlantic 

If you’ve never experienced arbitrary harassment or brutality at the hands of a police officer, or seen law enforcement act in a way that defies credulity and common sense, it can be hard to believe people who tell stories of inexplicable persecution. As I noted in “Video Killed Trust in Police Officers,” the dawn of cheap recording technology has exposed an ugly side of U.S. law enforcement that a majority of people in middle-class neighborhoods never would’ve seen otherwise. 

Today, what’s most disheartening isn’t that so many Americans still reflexively doubt stories of police harassment, as awful as it is whenever real victims are ignored. What vexes me most is police officers caught acting badly on camera who suffer no consequences and are defended by the police agencies that employ them. 

The latest example of abusive, atrocious police work posted to YouTube comes from St. Paul, Minnesota, where a black father, Chris Lollie, reportedly got off work at Cossetta, an upscale Italian eatery, walked to the downtown building that houses New Horizon Academy, where he was to to pick up his kids, and killed the ten minutes until they’d be released sitting down on a chair in a skyway between buildings. Those details come from the Minneapolis City Pageswhere commenters describe the area he inhabited as a public thoroughfare between commercial buildings. If you’re 27 and black with dreadlocks, sometimes you’re waiting to pick up your kids and someone calls the cops to get rid of you. The police report indicates a call about “an uncooperative male refusing to leave,” which makes it sound as though someone else first asked him to vacate where he was; another press report says that he was sitting in a chair in a public area when a security guard approached and told him to leave as the area was reserved for employees. The Minnesota Star Tribune visited the seating area and reported that ”there was no signage in the area indicating that it was reserved for employees.” 

So a man waiting to pick up his kids from school sits for a few minutes in a seating area where he reasonably thinks he has a right to be, private security asks him to leave, he thinks they’re harassing him because he’s black, and they call police. This is where the video begins, and that conflict is already over. The man is walking away from it and toward the nearby school where he is to pick up his kids.

So problem solved? It could have been.

Instead, this happened: [See Video Above]

What the video shows is a man who is politely but firmly telling a police officer that she has no right to ask him for identification, because he hasn’t done anything wrong or broken any laws, and is present in the building to pick up his kids. “What’s the problem?” he asks at one point, and answers his own question: “The problem is I’m black.” We can’t see inside the heads of the people who called the police or the officers who showed up, but that seems like a highly relevant factor–it certainly wasn’t unreasonable for him to reach that conclusion. 

His story about getting his kids wasn’t merely plausible, given the man’s age and the fact that there was a school right there–it was a story the female police officer shown at the beginning of the video or the male officer shown later could easily confirm. 

Lollie is also absolutely correct that no law required him to show an ID to police officers. As Flex Your Rights explains, “Police can never compel you to identify yourself without reasonable suspicion to believe you’re involved in illegal activity,” and while 24 states have passed “stop and identify” statutes “requiring citizens to reveal their identity when officers have reasonable suspicion to believe criminal activity may be taking place,” Minnesota isn’t one of those states.

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

The problem here is that these squealing man-children, so desperate to keep women out of their precious games, want it both ways. They want gaming to be taken seriously as a culture and art form, while at the same time throwing an unbelievable tantrum when subjected to serious criticism. This is ludicrous and immature on so many levels. Gaming isn’t for you, anymore. Gaming is for everyone. Everyone gets to have their say, to make their criticism, and gaming doesn’t need you to defend it.

The only thing left for these people to do is put their toys back in the pram and huddle together as the tide rises against them, until they wake up in five year’s time and realise that Assassin’s Creed 7 was actually a pretty good game, even though they had to waste three precious seconds flicking the gender over to ‘male’ on the character creation screen so they can feel comfortable again. Change is inevitable, especially when half of the freaking gamers in the country are women and actually want to play some games that don’t treat them like disposable trash.

So, here’s another change for you: if you really think feminism, or women, are destroying games, or that LGBT people and LGBT relationships have no place in games, or that games in any way belong to you or are “under attack” from political correctness or “social justice warriors”: please leave this website. I don’t want your clicks, I don’t want your hits, I don’t want your traffic. Leave now and please don’t come back.
