Clever Links

Kate Upton Doesn’t Care About Black People. I'm so glad I was at Rose City Comic Con on 9/11. Watching football with all those patriotic hot takes on Colin Kaepernick would have exploded my brain. I swear if I hear one more person in the media say they support someone's right to protest just not during the national anthem I'm going to plotz.

Did you know NFL players weren't even on the field for the national anthem until 2009 when the department of defense started sending the NFL bags of cash to stage patriotic displays before games. Hear that right wingers, your patriotism is a government conspiracy.

What Made Cartridge Games So Clever. Your average NES or Atari 2600 cartridges weren't all that special but once the SNES rolled into town game makers were putting all sorts of things on the cartridge from extra graphics processors to extra memory. It's really quite clever.

Pictures from 2016 Rose City Comic Con. There was lots of good cosplay at RCCC, I only got a handful of pictures so we'll just go with this gallery from Edward Mitchell. I really need to get a better camera, and not just a better phone. Camera phones can take really nice pictures given the right lighting and circumstances but nothing beats an actual camera. Panasonic and Sony both make a DSLRs that's aren't enormous, maybe that will be my Christmas gift to myself this year.

Back to the cosplay, I went to the big cosplay contest they had at RCCC which was the first time I had ever been to one. It was fun but I was a bit underwhelmed. There were a few really great costumes, but I felt like I had seen nicer costumes just walking the floor earlier that day. Also the categories were a bit off. People with really elaborate costumes that have obviously been doing this a long time were grouped in with people who had only spend a few hours on theirs. It didn't seem very fair. Maybe next year I'll have to go to the one ECCC does and see how they do it.

How long does it take games to be cheap on Steam? The quick answer is most games will be 50% off after 180 days. That's not too bad. However if you want to wait for those big 75% off sales you're looking at waiting almost a year. So look for me to pick up Fallout 4 in another 6 or 7 months.
