Live Action: Pokémon Apokélypse



Here a somewhat dated trailer I found of a live action Pokemon film. Although we might not see it coming to full length format anytime soon, this is a good idea to approach the more real world aspects of it. Growing up when Pokemon was at it's prime, I would like to see a darker story line to a fan favorite. Similar in approach to how they did Transformers.

When Street Fighter Meets Pokemon...

I just came across this new user created game that has been circulating across the internet for the past month. Those of you who grew up on Pokemon and never left Street fighter will be very pleased. "Turn-based battles and tiny sprites are for children. Those who grew up on Pokémon and are now a little more, well, grown up, deserve something more violent." This shows how interactive pokemon battles would be. Reminds me of how revolutionary kindgom hearts was for the Final Fantasy lovers. Getting rid of the turn based battles and have active combat. For more info, look below.

Man vs. Nature: the Roles they play in Sex and Gender Identity

what role anatomy has in “defining” gender and/or sex. What about gender identity?
Anatomy, to humans, plays a big role in defining a gender or sex. Just like everything else considered in society. Life is about passing certain tests. You can’t pass the test of being a woman if you have a penis. Yet when gender and sex are3 concerned, it is not black and white. Everything cannot be based off of appearance. That has been apparent when women that are born sterile and men that develop breasts arouse. Does that make them less of a man? Or do the guidelines of being a man or woman change. I recall, seeing information about the “Anti-Sissy” Boy Therapy (AC360.com). A young boy was forced by his parents to undergo intense gender conformation treatment. Ultimately, the boy felt like he wasn’t who he was forced to be, and that society didn’t accept who he naturally was, so he committed suicide.
The topics of gender and sex are more than skin deep. They are hormones, chromosomes; it is a combination of factors that make up our overall existence. A good example is a very macho man who is attracted to men, and a very sissy man who is attracted to only women. The dynamics are so complex that humans have a hard time understanding it and relating to it.
From an anatomical aspect, in men, “the testes secrete androgens” and in women “ovaries secrete estrogens”. What if a man has a condition to cause him to secrete little to no androgens…Then that is going to affect how he looks and acts in the future. With the focus on disorders, whether they are physical or mental, considering sex and gender have to be up in the air.
I recall from the movie in class, a man didn’t feel like he was a man, so he had “work done” to make his outside appearance match how he saw himself. He described as a little boy wanting to wear his sister’s clothes, putting on makeup, and jewelry. One can argue that when kids are younger they are gullible to their environment. If you are always around women, you will have tendencies to do the same things women do. It ultimately becomes a fantasy because the mandates that separate men and women in society view it as taboo. The problem would be whether people can separate the reality from the fantasy. On the other hand, does that mean that he is now a “she”, or is he just “confused”, a “freak”, “transformer”, etc.
When considering what is female. If a guy likes to dress up and wear makeup, is he more female than a tom boy? Especially if a post op male and a natural born female are concerned. I feel that society, which has a lot of influence from tradition and religion, has setup guidelines that every male and female are expected to comply with. This is so that they are deemed normal citizen. We are expected to see things as black and white when they are supposed to be a multitude of colors. “Biology [Nature] likes variation, Society hates it.”

DMC Reboot: New face to a familiar character

After watching the two latest trailers for DMC: Devil May Cry (seen below), I have become more of a fan.  At first, I felt like there was no way a new Dante could ever replace the old.  Why would Capcom allow that? But after looking at the previews they gave us, I grew more fond of the idea. "Dante needed to be Different." And now i see where they are going with it. We've seen a more comical and flashy approach to Dante that captures his free will and youth, but It takes away from the demonic setting of the story.  With the new approach, Capcom is clearly trying to unlock more potential out of the franchise by taking a grittier, darker route.  Of course you can't leave out the multitude of weapons and endless combos.  There are very few times where you want the wierd emo kids from school to actually look and act the part (doing what they do best), in this is one of those times.




"Anti-Sissy" Therapy still relevant today?

There has been an ongoing battle in regards to changing potential gay young boys into socially acceptable young men.  Western society does not accept homosexuality, or anything along those lines. That is a fact. That branches off in to pop culture, politics, religion, etc.  The average American does not see themselves as "gay-bashers" but they also do not think of them in the light of day as well. The question is, what defines a man? If a man veers away from the stereotype society puts on them, is it up to society to repair them? Are they less of a man?

Take a look at theses videos below and let me know how you think:

The Rise of "Reality" Sites...Do we really need them? Or does your life just suck?

Over the years, certain websites have became widely know for what their title's might say.  For example, {fmylife.com} has been gaining popularity by giving people the opportunity to  post the most awkward and embarrassing things that they have experienced on a daily basis.  This is probably one of the better benefits of technology because not only does it provide people with comic relief  in times of stress {"Damn, that sucks for them"}, but it also give people comfort.  There's no better feeling than to know that you are not alone, and that there are people in the world, no matter where they are, that are going through the same things you are going through. The best thing is to find those site and check them out. Feel free to post ones that you have come across:
