The Newness (September 15, 2001)
Usually, I try to keep it light up in here, but there's no way I can just gloss over what happened this week. I want to give my support to all those who have been hurt by the terrorist attack that took place in New York and in Washington D.C. Big up to all the firefighters, rescue crews, police, just anyone who is helping out in anyway possible. There's not a lot that I can say that others haven't said already, so I'll just finish up by saying this: WE AIN'T GOIN' OUT LIKE THAT. Those punk-@#$es behind are this is gonna get theirs. And you know this...
On a lighter note, I finally got a CD burner. Whoopie.
SNK v.s. Capcom 2 Alert!!! (it's gonna stay here)
The webmaster at that cool, cool site, Street Fighter Legends, has started an online petition to make sure that SNK vs Capcom for the Dreamcast makes it to the United States and Europe. See, so far, we may not get to play the 2-D goodness for ourselves. That ain't right! Sign the petition, don't use a fake name/address, and be a patriot! It doesn't take that long at all and remember, if this succeeds, it'll be a victory for 2-D games in general. FIGHT THE POWER!!! Remember:" If something is yours by right, then fight for it or shut up." (I can't remember who said that originally) Just click the banner below and read for the petition on the front screen.
I'll redo this on a later note.
And now...FROM THE TOP OF THE DOME:
I'm kinda proud heaing about how people all over the country are doing what they can do help out and show support. I say "kinda" proud because there are some jack@#$es out there being foul. Like who? Like the gas station down the street that upped the price of gas to $4.00 a gallon on the night of the attack. Like you ****heads that are attacking other Americans just because their Arab-Americans. That ain't right. Not one bit. It' like during World War II, a lot of Japanese Americans were put through hell because of paranoia and prejudice. They were harassed, attacked, and put into camps to be watched over like criminals. That was foul. This is just as foul. As a young Black man, I've spent everyday since age 15 being looked at like a gang member or a car-jacker. I'm sure many other Black and Latino people know what I'm talking about. So stop attacking innocent people. That's how this all started in the first place...
|Finally finished the artwork for Ax Battler. The full clip is "Sans Mullet", so chill.|
|This is for my art site, but I wanted you to see it. It's Beast from the X-Men, who also appeared in quite a few X-Men games (including X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse) and was cool as heck in the 90's X-Men cartoon. As far as I know, he's not in the "dude-totally-extreme" X-Men Evolution cartoon starring "Picco-rine."|
|Check out the art sent in by the mysterious Stephani Rolento, a young artist who sent some art of, who else, Final Fight boss Rolento!!!|
|Bomberman fans know this as a provider of more exploding goodness. Here, it will soon be in the main menu as an alert to new or updated items.|
|Radd Spencer's Card. The first of what will be... what, a dozen? Half a dozen? We'll see...|
