Blogging is Hard!

Arthifis' Place

Hello everyone and welcome to our place! 😀

I think I’ve talked about this subject many times… Blogging in general, my experience with blogging, when I don’t feel that good when it comes to blogging. But, I think I never addressed this! 😀

I love blogging! I really do, it’s one of those things I can see myself doing forever! That’s why I’m trying to go pro. However, Blogging is not easy! Like, not at all! XD So, I though to myself, why not write a post about this? And here we are! Take in mind though, some of the things I’ll address may make more sense to people who also are trying to go pro versus people who just do it as a hobby.

blogging going pro I googled Anime Pro Gif and this is what appeared

Idris Elba to Face Off Against Dwayne Johnson in ‘Fast and Furious’ Spinoff

Idris Elba is a very versatile man, he is undoubtably a very talented actor, he is reportedly in final talks to potray the villain in the upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off movie Hobbs and Shaw. this film stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in their Fast and Furious character roles , Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. The two began as rivals but began to team up in Fate of the Furious.

Variety reported that Idrils will play the antagonist who forces the duo to work together. The script was put together by series architect Chris Morgan, and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is set to direct. It’s slated to release on July 26, 2019.

Idris Elba gained notoriety playing roles such as heroic Heimdall in Thor: Ragnorok and Avengers: Infinity War, The Dark Tower and Pacific Rim, Elba has had some villainous turns too. He recently played the villain in Star Trek Beyond and voiced Shere Khan in the live-action The Jungle Book. He’s also been rumored to be under consideration to play the iconic character James Bond.

Universal has been looking for a way to put Dwayne Johnson in a starring role spin-off, given the popularity of his character. Fate of the Furious set up a natural vehicle for this to finally happen, given the buddy-cop chemistry with Statham.

WE ARE GEEKS OF COLOR

In case one did not know, there is a Fast and Furious spinoff film in the works. Spinoffs seem to be popular in the industry right now with upcoming releases like Sony’s Venom and Paramount’s Bumblebee. Dwayne Johnson, who probably has the best streak of being consistently on a theater screen throughout the year from all of Hollywood, will be leading the spinoff with the same charisma that helped revitalize the franchise years ago. He will reprise the role of special agent Luke Hobbs and joining him will be Jason Statham reprising the role of criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw.

Titled Hobbs and Shaw, the film will focus on the two foes joining forces yet again (first seen in The Fate of the Furious) to stop some threat. That is literally all that was known about the film until now. Variety has just broken the news on who will be…

5 Expensive Video Games You May Own

5 expensive video games you may own written by Rebecca Geizura (Game Over Box)

 

5. Tooth Protectors (Atari 2600) $450

 

Tooth Protectors was one of the first video games to sponsor a company.  Johnson and Johnson released this game by mail order only.  You play as the Tooth Protector and must save the teeth from the snake.  To do this, you must stop the snake from shooting breadcrumbs.  If the teeth get take too much damage, you can clean them with a toothbrush.

In this role-playing game, players control a boy who must travel around the world map and advancing the plot.  The side quests and strategic elements make this game one of the most expensive games for the original Playstation. A new factory sealed game may sell for around $300!

3. Musha (Sega Genesis) $300

(Melbourne Console Reproductions)

Musha is one of the few good quality shooting games on the Sega Genesis.  This was a very popular game in Japan, but it never caught on in the United States.  It was also never released in Europe making it a very sought-after game.

 

2. Shantae (Gameboy Color) $320

 

 

Shantae
(gamelife)

This semi-rare game is highly underrated.  Shantae is a platform adventure game that features a half-genie half-girl named Shantae as she travels to defeat an evil lady pirate. The game was released in 2002 shortly after the release of the newer, more powerful Gameboy Advance.

 

1. Earthbound (SNES) $200

 

EARTHBOUND
(eBay) 

 

Earthbound has come to be known as one of the most legendary Japanese RPGs ever created.  The real-world setting and sense of humor make this game so popular today.  The main character Ness can even be seen in many Super Smash Bros games for various Nintendo consoles.  The lack of interest upon release led to a game that was under manufactured.  If you have this game sealed in the box, you could sell it for around $2,000!

(5) NJT| Punro: At the moment I’m on Boruto becuase of the Naruto fangirl inside me. And if the first episodes were a little boring the last ones are better.
