I remember as a kid, games like Mortal Kombat, and music from people like Marilyn Manson was influencing kids to want to kill everyone. At least, thats what I was told by some people that had no idea what they were talking about. Mortal Kombat started off as a game with a gimmick, which in turn came out to be really funny. Mainly because of the fatalities, because some of them can have you laughing pretty hard form how over the top it is. Marilyn Manson’s music is meant to shock. That’s kind of it, and much of it is also pretty well written.
I’ve also seen old news reports about rap music encouraging people to join gangs, and shoot cops. When in reality they were talking about they world they were living in. And if you still don’t understand what was being talked about, watch the movie Straight Outta Compton, that should be a nice visual aid. People fear art, or like to promote the fear of it, because it seems to me when people are creative, they are more difficult to control. As seen in the movie Jesus Camp, if you can take the imagination and wonder out of a kid, they are damaged for life.
Lately on Pokemon Go there have been a mass of Dratinis, because I guess some event going on in game. And while catching the swarm around me I came across this, a Dratiti that’s of different color. “Whoa” was my first thought, because I think I found a shiny Pokemon. My first one. Didn’t expect that.
As much as I hear this claim about AR-15’s it makes me think, do you really suck that much? A bunch more kids just got killed at their high school last week, and there are people attacking those poor kids. Seems to me some people think guns are more important then anything else, and all you are going to hear from them is “I’m not giving my guns up” when no one is demanding they should.
Well, here are the photos I got from the day I was there. I would have went over the second day but something came up. It was a nice day out, nice bunch of photos, but the convention seemed a bit smaller this year for some reason. I know there were some others happening that same weekend so I wonder if that had an effect.
