Aspects of the Pedagogue



my friend’s dog was sick and couldn’t get up so they were gonna put him down and as his final supper they got him a big mac and when the dog smelled it he shot up and ate it in one bite and lived for three more years

Carry a Klefki with you 

One of the weirdest creatures introduced in XY, Klefki, which is a dang set of keys, is something real world people — not just Pokemon people — can put in their pockets now.

Tony Sarkees (maker of the Ace Attorney and Tiny Cartridge 3DS XL cases) put up this Klefki keyring on Etsy earlier today. Unsurprisingly, someone’s already bought it — I mean, it’s got immunity to Poison and Dragon, come on. No way that was going to stay in stock for long.

BUY Pokemon X and Y, upcoming games

I always have to laugh when a new round starts in the olympics and after the first athlete has their turn the commentators insist on saying they are “currently in first place,” as if that means much of anything when the other athletes are an entire round behind them.

Especially when followed up by the hilariously condescending “but that will change.”

Steve Kloves: You have that moment where Hermione says “That’s barbaric”

I think this is actually what frustrates me most about the Harry Potter books.  It’s clear that she knew exactly what was most interesting about the wizarding world and yet she chose to interpret it in the least interesting way she possibly could: with an Ultimate Evil.  Imagine how much greater those books would have been if there was more focus on, for instance, the house elves’ predicament, or how wizards are destroying the magical environment, or the casual dehumanization of Muggles, or what the Ministry of Magic actually does on a daily basis and how corruption within the ministry gums up the whole system. What’s interesting about that world is, just as Rowling says, how it is cruel and flawed and imperfect despite their ability to physically solve virtually any problem.  And, more importantly, that good people can fight against those imperfections but that they are complex and persistent and ultimately an integral part of any human society.  And she drops hints of those sorts of problems throughout the series, but the basic plot of the series doesn’t hold up to this theme very well.  If you strip the story down to basics, it really looks like an extremely typical Evil Arises->Fight the Evil->Defeat the Evil->Live Happily Ever After story, and that plot structure has always fundamentally ignored the messiness of real life.  I understand that this is, at the end of the day, a book for children, but do we really need to keep underestimating them like this?  I was (and still am) a huge fantasy fan and as a child I gobbled Harry Potter up with a spoon, but I also adored more nuanced books by authors like Diana Wynne Jones, Garth Nix, and Terry Pratchett, and now that I’m an adult those are the books that really still matter to me.

I don’t really get immersed in horror I said

It’s hard for me to suspend my disbelief I said

I don’t think horror games would affect me that much I said

I never realized how different it would be to actually “play” the character in a horror story.

I couldn’t even get through the opening scene of Bioshock.

I’m just sitting there mumbling “P. P. WHERE’S THE P KEY…!”

When I took AP Chemistry and AP Physics in high school none of the computers I was using had a version of Word with the equation editor and for that I deserve a MEDAL.
