Worlds Colide

I have a lot of hobbies. Gaming is just one of the many endeavors I enjoy pursuing, and easily in the top five of all my favorite activities. Also high up on the list of things I am interested in, is politics. So, it may not surprise you that I’ve been keeping an ear out about this whole SOPA (official) /PIPA (official) thing. As much as my two hobbies may thrill me on their own (I’ve listened to every GOP debate, half streaming while I killed dragons in Skyrim), I had an amazing laugh at the awesome combination of the two today.

Apparently, one of our U.S. congressmen (by the name of Jared Polis) plays League of Legends, and after seeing the “Help us Stop SOPA” thread on the forums, he decided to respond. Beyond it being a great moment of helpful reinforcements from those behind the lines, he agreed to continue checking in on the thread. Which then lead to this AMAZING troll FROM the representative TO a player.

I almost laughed my balls off. If the nerds of Colorado don’t get together to reelect this man, they are doing themselves a disservice.

As a last message, go here, to help stop these bills from passing.

 

Much a’Do…

FTCOn the governments part that is. By now, you’ve probably read about the recent FTC announcment in regards to bloggers and how swag is compensation. You’ve probably already browsed through some initial reactions. One blogger even did some investigative type follow-up research (essentially, I just consolidated all the various links from a couple blogs into one handy spot for you).

Essentially, the FTC is up in arms and concern over bloggers, yes, people like me who write, blather, and verbally fumble around in the dark massiveness that is the internet, might be enticing consumers to products with secret agendas and illicit gains. Yes, free swag, also known as review copies, is causing the diabolical geniuses of the blog’o’sphere (God, I hate that phrase) to use our amateur skills to dupe the benign masses into a purchase.

Request from House Minority

This will be one of my rare, and few forays into a post outside the typical purview of gaming. I try to not to get overly political here at times, it’s not what you guys come here for, and not what the focus of this blog is. This however is one of those instances that I feel I really needed to put into words what my thoughts were.

Drama, we have it

Comedy TragedyI’ve been on the fence whether to write about this particular in-guild/alliance situation that happened recently. I have a lot of personal opinions on the matter, and there’s a lot of stuff that people would rather I not put out in the world for anyone to read about. That said, I’ve never been one to pull back when I’ve had stuff to say, and the fact that I’ve been hesitant in this situation surprises me. With all of that said, I’m going to go ahead and put it all on the table, it will need to be a big table, so feel free to skip this sit down if you don’t want bleeding eyeballs.
