Meeting random Giantbomb fans on the streets

Yesterday I was in Leeds hanging out with some friends, we hand all done a little bit of shopping for Christmas and were heading home and a random guy comes up to me and says "Giantbomb" and points at my luchadeer tee. I say yes we then exchange a few words about the site, then we go on are-own ways. It was very random, but kinda cool.

So I was wondering if more GiantBombers had meet other fans randomly on the streets?

The End of the World is Not so Bad.

I have made a quick little video as I wait to film more of my Clock Tower 3 Lets Play.

If the sight of a mushroom cloud bring a smile to your face I hope this video will too. The music is We Will All Go Together When We Go by Tom Lehrer.

Hope this dose not count as youtube spam as this is a video I made.

WALL-E and the Ants of Doom

(this is a copy of my live journal post)

So this post was going to be just about how awesome WALL-E was, but oh no now I have more to tell you.

I will start with the other thing.

Ok, so I work at a school as a gardener; so I weed water and the like. So I am just going about doing my job and listening to a new J-Pop band I like, so what to you think I see......well about 1000 flying ants....some flying some coming out of the floor and the damn walls. So I run away and then find more....I run again.....guess what I find...yeah more ants.

So that was a fun day also the fact that it was a very hot fucking day did not help my mood.

Well on to better things namely WALL-E.

So I got to see this film thinking it is going to be a fun little romp in space with robots...it was but so much more. Ok I will start with before WALL-E, so we have this short about a magician and his bunny, I will not say what happens if anyone has not seen it, all I will say is it's very cute and funny.

That is a lot like WALL-E, so many moments of that are funny and cute. Something I like a lot was the fact they used a few thing from outer Sci-fi films....Auto = HAL 9000.

So yeah loved it, everyone go see it now,

The Link to the Gaming Gods

And low the day foretold in the the gaming bible had came to pass, the savour and redeemer of gaming was born in to form of a smiling bomb. A shrine was built to him by disciples of the game in the for of a website called Giant Bomb. This was a place of Holy Power and Awesome.

Well that is how I think  this all happen I maybe wrong, but  I don't think so.
