"The Simpsons" Eye Thing

Dec 26, 2012

Simpsons Family Photo
I noticed something while watching The Simpsons. Only the immediate Simpson family (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie & the Dog) has eyes that are touching, and almost every character on the show has their eyes apart. What's up with that? Is it a status thing? Because the five main character are more important and everyone else is expendable? Take a look...

No examine this picture, aside from the few Homer doubles (and Homer's mother), every character has eyes with a space between them.

Any idea why the eyes are done in this way? Is the there a story behind this?

I remember a few years back, during a film documenting "The Simpsons" success around the world, the argument was brought up saying the eyes of Simpsons characters resemble that of a woman's chest, mainly the eyes being likened to breasts. 

Could the eyes of characters on The Simpsons have aided in the success of this television franchise? And if so, was it intentional or just a very fortunate mistake?

ShellCore Command

Dec 20, 2012

ShellCore Command Ep1 is strategy-defense science-fiction adventure type game. The plot is, you start off will a little green ship fighting for an army of other green ships/buildings, against the infected red ships/building. Throughout the game you need to play through the story and make your ship stronger. You get stronger by adding more parts to your ship. They don't need to go in any particular order, place or logic. If the piece is available, stick it on. The more you add the bigger you get and heavier you get, thus becoming a bigger target and slower, but heck you can add more engines to make you go fast. Different weapons like bullets, missiles and lazer beams and fun and a good idea to mix them up.

If you ship gets damaged you will heal, if parts of your ship get blown off, all is not lost, because you can go to an allied mechanic and get your ship reset to your last custom build, that means full health/armor/energy/equipment.

All in all, it's a pretty fun game. After a while you stop caring about what your ship looks like and just want to tack on as many parts as you can and get back into the action. The game can be rather short, especially if you play like a pirate (explained below) but temporary fun is better than no fun at all.

Play like a Pirate

So I figured out how to be a hulking doom machine in this game, typically your supposed to earn money from missions then buy parts. But common, that takes too long. Being a Pirate is when you destroy enemy ships quickely and tow the scavaged parts back to your garage and add them onto your ship. So to be a pirate all you need to do is choose a section of space with an abundance of enemies that is right beside a safe zone (so you can get back to the garage fast), just fly around shooting up the red ships until one of them drop an item, tow it back to the garage and place it onto your ship.
And presto.
Do that a could of times and you've effectively doubled the power of your ship, without spending a cent (or in this case a credit).

Paladog Game Review

Dec 14, 2012

Who's a good dog? You are… well, most of the time.

When you put a bunch of cute, fluffy, little woodland creatures against a ravenous horde of the undead, it's safe to say that we all know who will win that fight. Well, most of the time. With Paladog!, the latest defense game for the iPhone, it turns out that the fuzzy wuzzies have some pretty substantial teeth and they're not afraid to take a bite out of the Soulless Legions of Evil.

The game takes place on a future Earth, one where humanity has been wiped out by angry gods. As a result, fuzzy animals have evolved into the dominant species on the planet and have lived in peace for quite some time. However, the forces of darkness finally decide to rise up and wipe everybody out. A hero arises in the form of Paladog, a heroic Scottish Terrier that leads his animal brethren in the war against all that's evil.

The basic idea with the game is that it's a mix of real-time strategy and defense games. The main "Wipe Out" play mode requires players wait for resources (food, in this case) to accumulate so they can build units to attack the enemy fortress on the map. For players, there's no fortress to defend, but they'll automatically lose a level is Paladog is killed. Because the hero can move around a map, do special attacks, and bestow special abilities to troops within his aura field, players will want to keep him involved in every battle, but they also need to keep him safe from enemy attacks.

There are three other mission types that pop up during the campaign: "Escort", "Destiny", and "Battlefield." Escort is exactly what it sounds like: a unit has to be protected by player units while it inches across the map. Destiny, meanwhile, has a conveyor belt that feeds players with a supply of spells and units that are put into play, the general goal being to survive until the level's timer runs out.

Battlefield levels, meanwhile, are the most RTS-like of the bunch. Paladog sits in a corner of the map as a commanding officer and players place advancing units in one of five different rows to combat the advancing enemies. Rows are captured when a unit manages to make it all the way across the screen, and a level is won when a majority of the rows are captured.

Progress in the game is slow going. Unlocking new units costs an increasingly large amount of gold and further upgrades carry an ever-growing price tag. While this is normal going with such games, the cost for new units is pretty hefty. Meanwhile, enemy armies have an ever-growing variety of character types to throw at player forces. As a result it quickly becomes necessary to replay earlier levels multiple times just to build up enough gold to keep on unlocking units in order to beat new ones. That's really a bit frustrating when there are over 100 levels to play through.

Visually, the game is pretty adorable. The character designs are clever and cute (one of my favorites was a walking TV amidst the forces of evil), and individual units are animated really nicely. The levels, too, look great. There are a total of five different territories in the game (with 24 levels per territory), and each has a different theme that's reflected in the levels. The soundtrack is also appropriately epic, but there's no option to play music from the iPhone's library in the game.

Paladog! is cute and charming, but it quickly wears out its welcome because if forces you to replay levels way too many times if you want to keep advancing. There's a lot to do in the game, but the fact that players have to repeat their battles if they want to succeed wears down on its lasting appeal, especially when there's so much content to play through.

Snowpeople are attacking suburban towns along the eastern seaboard. They have been reported as been extremely hostile, even incidents of the snow people turning on each other for not being cruel enough. Our weapons seem to be powerless against these creatures, out only hope is a snow-dog that has the power within him to melt the snow soldiers in their tracks.

Dear NHL

Dear NHL,
While you and the players are fighting over who gets what percentage of the fans hard earned $$ we the fans are going to find other ways to spend our hard earned $$ when you finally come to a compromise and start the season we will have a lockout of our own. We pay you $10-$20 just to park near your arenas, we pay you $35-$200 to sit in your arenas, we pay $8-$10 per beer in your arenas, we pay $8-$10 for a chincy slice of pizza or a stupid pretzel in your arenas. We wait in long lines for all of this and never argue when you raise the prices every year. We show our loyalty year in year out and you continually show your lack of loyalty yet again!!! So how about we boycott your product for a while and see what you have to fight about then! Sincerely one angry fan!!!! *COPY & PASTE IF YOU AGREE

Don't yell at your kids!

Twist on Classic Anti-Smoking Financial Argument

Lady: Do you smoke?

Guy: Yes I do.

Lady: How many packs a day?

Guy: 3 packs.

Lady: How much per pack?

Guy: $10.00 per pack.

Lady: And how long have you been smoking?

Guy: 15 years

Lady: So 1 pack is $10.00 and you have been smoking 3 packs a day which puts your spending per month at $900. In 1 year, it would have been $10,800. Correct?

Guy: Correct.

Lady: If 1 year you spend $10,800, not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending total at $162,000. Correct?

Guy: Correct.

Lady: Do you know if you hadn’t smoke, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you could have by now bought a Ferrari?

Guy: Oh. Do you smoke?

Lady: No.

Guy: Then where’s your fucking Ferrari?
