A few times, earlier this year, the guys said things that made me angry. A few moments later, violent storms ripped through the east, dumping tons of rain on all of them. In a bid to end this heat wave, they have been doing all manner of things to try and get me to send the rain, but it just hasn’t worked yet. Perhaps I need to do an anger dance or something.

In Other News: dancing like Carlton isn’t cheap but it is worth it, Konami says sorry and Nintendo still has a place in today’s gaming market.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy avoiding kissing while driving.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      Huehuehue

      • Dutch Matrix

        That cat is dead. Or blind. Or both!

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          I react the same way when someone is trying to interact with me while I’m playing The Witcher 3.

          • Dutch Matrix

            Man, that is so me listening to James Spader as Ultron.

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            You said it. That guy was the perfect voice for Ultron.

          • Dutch Matrix

            You know what nails it for me though? When the twins tell the story of the bombing of their village. The way Ultron LISTENS to them. I have never seen that level of facial involvement from a robot. That scene alone makes Age of Utlron worthy of a few re-watches…

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            I really did enjoy that move more than I thought I would.

          • Dutch Matrix

            My first screening of it was proper meh. My eyes cannot handle 3d so well. But in plain ole 2d on my TV it is my movie of the year so far. (Yeah. I know. I am not writing reviews for that snobbish site themovies.co.za anytime soon…)

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            Haha.
            Definitely one of my top action movies this year, if not the top one so far (I have only watched a handful, to be fair).
            Still have to watch Antman though.

          • Brady miaau

            What movie is this?

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Avengers: Age of Ultron

        • Brady miaau

          No, sometimes they get like that when they are focused on a single object, probably moving. I have observed that, although this is an extreme case.

          Cats sometimes focus on the goal to the exclusion of the immediate surrounding, hence sometimes not making the landing or the jump or whatever. Cuteness!

  • Grand Admiral Chief

    Masehare now I’m lus for some waffles!

    • Dutch Matrix

      Haresewaffles now I’m lus for some Ma. (Whoops. The CoD player in me escaped. Again. Sorry. ANd no. Not referring to your seriously off limits Ma… Promise!)

  • Commander JJ of the Normandy

    That is one sexy header

    • Dutch Matrix
      • Commander JJ of the Normandy

        No. No it’s not.

        • Dutch Matrix

          Sis! You make my sister cry!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I was thinking much the same. Different words perhaps, but the same sentiment.

        • Grand Admiral Chief

          Dude looks like a lady

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Anyone planning on using the M1 past or near Grayston Drive… DON’T!!!!

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      This is crazy. Shocking.
      There are very strict building regulations in place to avoid things like this.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Yes there are… obviously they weren’t followed 😛

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          That’s the problem, I think.
          Sad really.

    • Brady miaau

      I was very close to having to drive home after a meeting in JHB CBD at around the time it fell.

      Lucky it was cancelled.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Glad to hear it.
