Hey all

My girlfriend and I just adopted a 6-month old puppy from a local rescue! She's an awesome Border Collie/Sheltie/Goldie/Whatever mix. We spent a long time figuring out what to name her, and then I started watching an older Unprofessional Friday that I'd missed.

She was passively listening, and out of nowhere threw out "... Rorie."

We both basically instantly fell in love with it, so now our dog is named Rory (short for Aurora), and it's thanks to the GB crew =) And don't worry, Rorie - she will be properly pet.

Age of Ultron

3/5, I guess. I thought the pacing was awful; but the pure action scenes were super well done. The post-credits scene was really offputting, though.

I hadn't looked at this article since the day it was posted, and it still makes me sad.

Rest in peace, good friend - I'll always remember how much you helped me through the hard times <3

I played in a bunch; but my favourite was the Quake 3 TNT. I won a few rounds (I can't remember what my username was, maybe Bassman2112) which felt awesome =)

Played in a few Trackmania, BF3, and TF2

I picked up a PS4 at launch; but I'm mainly a PC guy. Here are my feelings.

I feel that the PS4 was a good investment; but I don't often use it for games other than local multiplayer (niddhogg, puyo puyo tetris, et cetera). It has become a way to watch Netflix, Plex, Crunchyroll, et cetera on our couch with the possibility for games as well. When games I'm excited for like Uncharted 4 come out, then I'll definitely play the exclusives there; but, as mentioned in the header, I mainly use PC to play my games.

As for the Xbone - it seems fine; but I am personally not interested in any of the exclusives (sunset overdrive looks okay, and forza is a cool series; but still, not going to drop 400 bucks on another console for those). We also don't have cable, so a lot of the TV functionality would go unused. The kinect seems interesting, but it's not really something I'm overly interested in. I feel like Microsoft has done a lot to get back into the console game; but I can't justify having two systems that I won't be using too often.

The WiiU seems great - I will probably pick one of those up in the near future.

Here is a link to the Rooster Teeth article (site is down at the time of posting).

Though my relationship with Rooster Teeth has been inconsistent over the last few years, I'm really sad to see Monty pass. He was a huge asset to the team there, and created some really fantastic works. I hope all the best for his family <3

2014 was similar for me. I had watched a lot of anime in years past, but for the 5 or 6 years prior to '14, I had completely fallen off.

WIthin the past year, I've watched about 35 full seasons + several movies. I'm glad to see we have some in common (Higurashi, Madoka, Steins;Gate, Attack on Titan, Paprika, et cetera) =)

Anyways, I'll refrain from typing up a big ol' rambling "anime is rad" post, and instead say "high five, duder."

DTP's Z2 for me. I didn't listen to a ton of metal this year, but that album was spectacular. "Earth" is a really fantastic song from that album.

Completely dependent on what you want to study =) If you're looking for a post-secondary school, do some research into schools & teachers you'd really want to study with. Maybe you'll end up finding that one of the most interesting programs is actually in Japan or Canada or something ^^
