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 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.

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…

On gatekeeping in the anime community

Thoughts That Move

Recently, anime YouTuber The Anime Man tweeted a sentiment that rubbed some people the wrong way…

Before you say “but it’s a joke,” well duh. Yes, this is framed in context of the ever-popular “pics or it didn’t happen” meme. Further, bagging on the elitism of “real anime fans” tracking every series they watch on websites like MyAnimeList and its contemporaries is in itself a running gag to many. But why is this? It’s simple: this is an attitude that is staunchly held by many who see anime fandom as an exclusive club, and The Anime Man’s tweet plays directly into that mentality. It may be intended as a joke but its sentiment of gatekeeping is real and requires discourse.

Alonzo Rodriguez criminal Anime Expo shooting suspect beware

Hello, fanbase as you know, I use this wordpress blog as an outlet for my obsessive entertainment passions’ and hobbies but now this time we need to use this page for Justice, a dangerous man who goes by the name Alonzo Rodriguez has been notified by the LAPD due to scary death threats in the form of a school shooting within Los, Angeles’s annual anime convention Anime Expo, 2018, get this man caught ladies and gentlemen.

 

Alonzo Rodriguez
Warning Alonzo Rodriguez the Anime Expo 2018 shooting suspect , if you see this man do not approach him call 911 and go

 

 

Screenshots of the text conversation were originally shared on Facebook by recipient Robert Kampfy Grubbs but were then removed by the social media website. Facebook user Karen Huynh then shared the screenshots on June 8 where it was picked up by other social media accounts and distributed widely.

In the text messages, Rodriguez allegedly writes, “These cons are due for a high school shooting, by a high school kidd [sic]. I’m working on a case at the moment. Shit u [sic] not.”

Due to the threat and Rodriguez’s proximity to California conventions, concerned parties contacted Anime Expo’s Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA) to bring awareness to the situation. Anime News Network reached out to SPJA for comment. SPJA stated:

 

 

The Investigation Report

The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation and everyone involved with Anime Expo take all threats of any nature very seriously and will always elevate them to the proper authorities to investigate.

When we were made aware of the potential threat implied online, we promptly alerted local law enforcement. They have and will continue to take appropriate actions in accordance with their procedures.

Just as in 2017, we are working with security teams and local law enforcement, including K9 teams and traffic control officers, to maintain the safety of our event. Additionally, as previously announced, we are utilizing RFID badges for AX this year and will have security checks at each entrance. We encourage attendees to check our mobile app and maps to get familiarized with the various designated entrances.

All attendees must have their prop weapons checked prior to entering the event area at the weapon check booths located outdoors prior to entering the event area. We encourage all attendees to notify staff of any suspicious activities, in accordance with the “see something, say something” campaign.

For 27 years, we have been proud of our commitment to providing the attendees of Anime Expo a safe and fun environment to enjoy their passion of Japanese pop culture. And, we know this will continue as Anime Expo evolves and grows.

 

Anime News Network reached out multiple times to the Los Angeles Police’s Media Relations and Major Crime Division via phone and e-mail to confirm what actions are being taken to ensure AX attendee’s safety and what, if any, actions were taken regarding Rodriguez. Those requests were not answered by press time.

According to Grubbs, this threat is not the first Rodriguez has made. Grubbs stated that he met Rodriguez in 2012, and believes that his temperament is tied to failed romantic relationships and that he engages in “bizarre behavior” in order to obtain attention. Grubbs added that Rodriguez has bragged about his ability to defend himself and is confrontational to others.

According to Grubbs, Rodriguez brought a knife to Anime Conji, a convention in San Diego, and “put the staff under duress” during the event. Anime News Network has reached out to Anime Conji staff to verify this event but has not received a response by press time.

About Insane Robots
Initially created as a tabletop prototype with a pile of old business cards, the developers at Playniac have pulled from both physical and digital design processes to create a card battling game that captures what players love most about the genre and removing the elements they hate; namely expensive card expansions, time-consuming customization, farming, and an ever-rising bar that excludes players who don’t purchase more cards.

This laser focus freed Playniac to create the perfectly designed battle deck. With only 22 tokens, it is easy to learn and manage, yet full of unexpected turns and strategic depth. Not to be confused with a collectible card game (CCG), Insane Robots is card battling… HACKED!

Insane Robots finds players leading a robot rebellion through randomly generated survival arenas. Full of fiendish card battles, it’s FTL meets Battle Royale in a card game. Overthrow the malevolent robot despot, The Kernel. Save robotkind in an epic 15+ hour single-player campaign full of peril and twists, as a decaying robot dystopia is revealed.

Master the battle deck and develop strategies in super-accessible local, online and single-player robotic skirmishes. Deploy HACKS and GLITCHES in the heat of battle and use your wits to terminate the competition. Battle with over 46 deliciously diverse robots in five hostile environments. Augment devious droids to grow more powerful and trade cutting, robotic insults with opponents along the way.

What Power Rangers Fans Want To See In The Film

WE ARE GEEKS OF COLOR

By: Joseph Opoku (@SCORPZ0001)

With the news of the Power Rangers 2017 movie being distributed by Lionsgate coming out March 24th, I feel like fans should have their own say in what they expect to see in the upcoming film. Power Rangers is a long time childhood franchise, many 90s kids have not let go of this amazing TV show, I have been watching Power Rangers since Mighty Morphin and I enjoyed other seasons’ as well such as Ninja storm, Wildforce, Dino Thunder, Dino Super Charge and many others.

power-rangers-2017-movie-costumes-photo.jpeg

In my opinion, the film needs to feature scenes where there are many unmorphed fights against the puddies. This would eventually lead to their morphing sequence. This scene should also include badass rock music. Similar to the Dino Thunder unmorphed battle original soundtrack. The unmorphed fights make us believe that the five new actors: Dacre Montgomery, R.J Cycler, Noami Scott, Ludi Lin…

Erased and Ignored: Dick Grayson’s Rromani Identity Comes to Light

Nightwing is my favourite superhero and his heritage is important keep Dick Grayson Romani they should highlight his heritage in the upcoming Titans TV series and future Nightwing movie

The Nerds of Color

Last week, Warner Brothers announced the addition of a solo Nightwing film with LEGO Batman director Chris Mckay to their DC film slate. The news sent fans into an excited tizzy and resulted in a slew of potential fan-chosen actors who could play the title role.

It’s been almost 20 years since Dick Grayson last appeared on the big screen in Batman and Robin as portrayed by Chris O’Donnell. Previous actors who have played Dick Grayson — or the Robin character — have been Douglas Croft, Johnny Duncan, and Burt Ward. There have also been two television shows, The Graysons and Titans, that were meant to feature Dick Grayson as the central character. Both, unfortunately, were scraped by their respective networks.

So there’s been a lot of fan interest in a Nightwing/Dick Grayson-centric media property for a long while. Now with Warner Bros. making it official, fans are eagerly…

Himouto! Umaru-chan School Uniform Cosplay

So cool literally

Wretched and Divine

Umaru is from the anime, Himouto! Umaru-chan. I’ve cosplayed as her before, but not in her school uniform. You can see my cosplay of her off-mode self here.

I thank two of my closest friends for these photos. They were patient and withstood the cold. It makes me happy that my cosplays have improved a lot, compared to my earlier work. It’s increasingly becoming more “easy” and the photos are turning out better with very minimal editing. There are more photos of this cosplay, but I will be posting them on my cosplay Instagram account.
