Anime Thoughts... Wonder Egg Priority Episode 4: Colorful Girls

Wonder Egg Priority

Hey there. This is the first post of a new series that you'll find on Metallman's Reverie... Anime Thoughts... You see, I watch a lot of anime. As a matter of fact, I named a few days of the week by the anime that is scheduled to come out that day. Like... Tuesday is Wonder Egg Priority day. Wednesday? Re: Zero day. Sunday? Attack on Titan day. And there are a lot more. But anyways, I figure that writing a post on what I just watched would be a good idea. Now... because I am writing about about the latest episode, there will be spoilers. If you haven't watched the episode that I am about to write about, go watch it and then come back here because I am going to write as if my audience has already watched the episode. I'll mention a topic and then I"ll give me thoughts. So first up, the anime series Wonder Egg Priority Episode 4. Let's dig right in.

Thoughts On... Talentless Nana

Talentless Nana Anime
Hey there. I'm a huge anime fan. Some might even say I'm an otaku type person (like the posts on my Otaku Box don't give it away. lol) so I watch a lot of anime. I'm been thinking of continuing my Thoughts On... series based on anime series that I recently watched. I originally thought of doing per episode but that's just going to be too much and because the Fall anime season just ended, I figured that this would be the best time to give thoughts on an anime series where the season just ended. So for the revival of Thoughts On... series, let's talk about the Talentless Nana. But before I do, let's get some technicalities out of the way. This post will contain spoilers for the Talentless Nana anime series (Fall anime season 2020) so I suggest you catch the series before you read the rest of this post. You have been warned, friends! Here are my thoughts on... Talentless Nana.

Resurrecting the Thoughts On... Series

Anime to watch
Must see anime!

Hey there. I do quite a bit of TV watching and reading. Err... I mean, I watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga. lol There is just so much good stuff in the anime world right now that it has been pretty hard to keep up with it all. But there are a few series that I just cannot miss. Shows like Re: Zero, Rent-A-Girlfriend, and Sword Art Online: War of the Underworld are must watch for me. And let's not forget the manga that I'm currently following as well. We're talking Tower of God, Kaguya-Sama: Love is War, My Hero Academia to name a few. Because I'm always checking something out, I figure that this is the perfect opportunity to bring back my Thoughts On... series.

Thoughts on... Oculus

Hey there.  I love horror flicks.  I am intrigued by the supernatural.  I think that Amy Pond, er... Karen Gillan, is awesome.  So when I find out that there is film out there that combines all three, I just had to check it out!  In a nutshell, Oculus is a film about a mirror and some spooky stuff that goes around because of it.  Brother and sister, Tim and Kaylie, vow to destroy it once and for all.  But can they get it done before the mirror does its spooky stuff on them???  Story doesn't sound original, but it does look intriguing, so when I found the film at my local Redbox, I couldn't resist.  I haven't done a Thoughts on post in a while so let's just lay out the ground rules before I get into it.  THIS IS NOT A REVIEW.  This is merely some thoughts and observations that I made while watching the film.  Also, I will speak candidly of the film so there will be spoilers.  If you haven't seen it, go see it now and then come back and check out this post.  Now, my thoughts on... Oculus.

Thoughts On... Thor! The Goddess of Thunder!

Thor
Introducing Thor!  The GODDESS of Thunder!
Hey there.  Comics are filled with stories made of extreme fantasy.  We have super heroes and we have super villains.  We have parallel worlds and we have alternate universes.  Throughout comic book history, heroes have died and resurrected and died again many times over.  But you know what has never happened?  At least not that I know of?  A well known character changing gender!  That's right!  We've had alternate female heroes that mirrored their masculine counterparts (Power Girl, Bat Girl, etc.) in comics but Marvel is really changing the comic book universe by having the almighty Thor be a woman in the comics!  Here are my thoughts on... Thor the Goddess of Thunder.

Thoughts on... The Purge

The Purge Movie Poster
Hey there. What would you do if any and all crime was legal for 12 hours?  Would you lock down at home?  Would you go out and loot, steal, and kill to your heart's content?  If allowing all crime to be legal for 12 hours will guarantee you that there will be NO crime for the rest of the year, will your moral compass accept "The Purge?"  When I first heard of this movie, I thought that the concept of it was intriguing.  Sometime in future America, for 12 full hours, all crime is legal.  There will be no cops, no medical personel.  Every man, woman, and child for themselves.  This, my friends, is The Purge.  By allowing the citizens to participate in The Purge, crime during the rest of the year is practically non existant.  I caught this movie last weekend and I must say that I definitely have some thoughts on it, but first, a warning:  SPOILERS AHEAD!!!  Go catch the movie, and then come back and let's have a discussion, friends!  Now, my thoughts on... The Purge.

Sorry I Have Been MIA

Need to post!  Gotta podcast!  Need to post!  Gotta podcast!
Hey there.  Sorry I've been MIA recently.  I've been so caught up with work and working out that I haven't been able to carve the time to write something up and I feel completely horrible for not writing.  That's a good sign, right?  lol  No worries though.  I'm back.  I'm done with being missing and I need to get back into the swing of things and decided that a quick, "what's up", post will do it.  So what's going down?  Let's find out!

Thoughts On... the Xbox One

Introducing... the Xbox One!
Hey there.  It's here!  The big unveiling of the next gen Xbox console.  It's not Xbox Durango, it's not Xbox Infinity.  It's Xbox One!  I'm sure many of you reading this have already checked some, if not all of the 2 hour presentation earlier today.  I'm not going to get into the specifics.  There are plenty of websites with people way smarter than me that will break down the Xbox One specs for you.  I'm an average Joe that loves games.  I have some curiosities about the Xbox One and I have a few thoughts that came to mind while checking out the presentation.  So here are my thoughts on the Xbox One reveal.

Thoughts On... The 2012 - 2013 Los Angeles Lakers Season

# 7 Lakers vs # 2 Spurs!  NBA Playoffs!  I love this game!
Hey there.  I'm a huge sports fan.  I strongly support the Los Angeles area teams but really, I'm just a fan of the sport.  Whether it be basketball, football, hockey, or baseball, I'll support the local teams because I just love the thrill of competition.  For as long as I can remember, I have been a Lakers fan.  I've seen them win with Magic Johnson, I've seen them win with Kobe and Shaq, I've seen them miss the playoffs, I've seen thm steal Pau Gasol from the Grizzlies, and I've seen them assemble this "super team" of Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard.  This season was to be season where the Lakers steam rolled through the NBA.  The season where the Lakers play the unstoppable force going up against the NBA.  Last night, the Lakers made the NBA playoffs... as the 7th seed.  It's been a tumultuous season for the Lakers.  Mostly frustrating, partly exhilirating, all with a touch of Hollywood drama.  Here are my thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers 2012 - 2013 NBA season.

A New Series! What I'm Playing...

Ugh!  Get off me, zombies!!!
Hey there.  I'm going to start a new series.  I don't think I've started a new one since my "Thoughts on..." series.  I've gotten much positive feedback on that series and I'm extremely grateful.  So now, I bring you guys my, "What I'm Playing..."  series.  This series is NOT a review and will be different from my Thoughts On series.  See... here's the thing...  I play a lot of video games.  Being a blogger, I tell myself that I will post my thoughts on it when I have a moment.  That moment comes and goes and the blog post is never started.  Before I know what happened, I'm already 4 games ahead of what I planned on writing about and feel overwhelmed and ultimately... none of the games get their own post.

Thoughts on... Pester (XBLA Game) by Flump Studios

Hey there.  Our good friends over at Flump Studios are at it again and have released another GREAT XBLA game!  Super Killer Hornet (SKH) was pretty cool and now they have released Pester, another great shooter that takes me back to the days of Gradius and Galaga.  Pester is currently available at the Xbox Live Marketplace for a mere 80 MS!  Before we get into the game itself, I want to give a little info on Flump Studios.  Flump Studios is an up and coming small indie game developer and they are based in the UK.  They have been working on games for about a year now and have developed a few mobile games before their SKH release on Xbox Live Arcade. Pester is their second game into the marketplace and I believe they are already working on thier next title.  I respect all game developers but it's something about the indie titles that I feel more drawn too.  I feel as if they are living their dream and it's pretty cool to see thier hard work finally pay off.  That's a big reason why I enjoyed Indie Game: The Movie... but that's for another post.  Now... my thoughts on....  Pester!

Thoughts On... Wreck it Ralph

Hey there.  Wreck it Ralph is right up my alley.  It's a movie paying homage to retro video games and somewhere in all of the video game character cameos, there is a feel good story of a bad guy wanting more than just being well... a bad guy.  When I first saw the trailer for this film, I just had to see it.  Being a gamer that was raised off of the retro games, it immediately grabbed my attention.  Seeing familiar faces from games past was not only nostalgic but also brought back fond memories of my youth.  If you haven't had the chance to catch this film, go do it before you will have to wait for the Wreck it Ralph DVD/Blu Ray release.  WARNING!  SPOILERS BELOW!  Now, here are my thoughts on... Wreck it Ralph.

Thoughts On... The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 2 - Sick

Hey there.  Last week's episode was pretty cool and this week's was even better.  If you are not watching AMC's The Walking Dead then you must not like great television entertainment.  lol  Anyways, the third season started with plenty of excitement and this episode definitely continued down that trend.  We finally got a glimpse of another group and we find out what ends up happening to Herschel.  If you haven't seen this episode, step away and check it out.  There will be SPOILERS in this post.  Now here are my thoughts on...  The Walking Dead S3: E2 - Sick.

Thoughts On... The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 - Seed

Hey there.  Who caught the season 3 premier of The Walking Dead last night???  Let me rephrase that...  Who DID NOT watch The Walking Dead last night!?!?!  AMC's insanely popular show finally returned last night with the first episode of the season 3.  The last episode of season 2 ended on such a high note that many fans were curious to see how the show would maintain the high intensity.  Michonne made an appearance, the farm was overrun by zombies, Shane's dead, Lori's preggers, we get a glimpse of the prison, and Rick.... Rick finally asserted himself as the man in charge, proclaiming that this is "no longer a democracy."  If you have yet to see S3:E1 - Seed, of the The Walking Dead, DO NOT CONTINUE.  SPOILERS BELOW.  This is not a recap of the episode.  You can go elsewhere for that.  These are just some observations and thoughts that I had while watching the show.  Now...  here are my thoughts on... Seed.

Thoughts On... LIMBO

Hey there.  I have always been fascinated by PlayDead's Xbox Arcade megahit, LIMBO.  When the demo was released, I immediately downloaded it.  When the price of 1200 MS was announced, I was extremely hesitant in purchasing the game.  Many reviews at the time criticized the "short gameplay" and I really like to get a good bang for my buck.  Today, you can get LIMBO, Trials HD, and Splosion Man for about $20.  I managed to score enough free MS points through the Xbox Reward program so I ended up coughing up the 1200 to download the game.  I know... I know...  Playdead's LIMBO was the talk of the town when it came out and I'm just getting around to it now.  Aside from a few screen shots, I made a conscience effort to stay away from ANYTHING that would spoil the game for me.  Thank goodness, I did.  LIMBO is more than just a game, it is art.  If you haven't had a chance to play the game and plan to, step away now.  Go kill a few hours and play LIMBO and then come back to discuss.  SPOILERS BELOW!  Now, after my first playthrough, here are my thoughts on...  LIMBO.

Google Adsense Account Disabled

Hey there.  When I first started this blog many moons ago, I looked around for ways to earn a few extra bucks from it.  I remember getting my feet wet in programs like ProjectWonderful and CMF ads.  When I learned that it could all be so easy if I just signed up with Google AdSense, I did and it was great.  I remember earning close to $30 my first month and I was pretty excited about that.  I told myself that my blog is still a nobody site and if I were to have better than decent traffic, my Google AdSense earnings would multiply!  Then... just like that, my account was disabled.  WHAT!?!?!?!  I was extremely disappointed.  I appealed but I got nowhere.  And the worst part is that they do not offer you an explanation.  They simply state that they cannot provide any details at this moment.  I do not like that answer.  If there is something wrong, whether it's my fault or not, I would like to know!  How else am I going to fix the problem?  Do I have offensive material on my site?  Did an inappropriate ad display on my site?  Were there invalid clicks?  Tell me what was/is the problem?!?!  I never found out.  Fast forward close to 5 years later and I reapplied for Google AdSense.  After another site review, I was accepted!  Oh happy days are upon us!!!  Then... 2 days later, my account was suspended...  AGAIN!  WHAT!?!  And again, for reasons unknown.  What really upset me this time around, though, was that my site was reviewed and got the OK from Google Adsense a mere 2 days BEFORE being disabled!  If there was something wrong with my site, why would they OK it only to disable it a mere 2 days later???

Thoughts On... the Dallas Cowboys Defeating the New York Giants 24 - 17

Dallas Cowboys 24 - New York Giants 17
Hey there.  Are you ready for some football?!?!  I sure am!  I hate the few months leading up to football season because the only sport that is on TV is baseball.  Even though I played in a softball team for 2 seasons, I just can't watch the sport on TV.  It's just not my cup of tea.  So now that football is back, sports have been reinserted into my life!  I love football and couldn't be more excited that the first game of the season finally kicked off!  So here are my thoughts on the opening game of the 2012- 2013 NFL season between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.

Thoughts On... The Dark Knight Rises

Hey there.  Have you had a chance to see The Dark Knight Rises yet?  If you haven't, what are you waiting for?  The much anticipated finale of the Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan did not disappoint.  Movie premier tickets were sold out months before the movie was released and for good reason.  Batman Begins and The Dark Knight gave us some of the best Batman movies in existence.  Batman Begins portrayed Batman as he is in the comics.  Because Nolan was bold and was willing to make movies that changed the standard of what a Batman movie should be, many fans talked and speculated about how Nolan will end his trilogy.  I've seen The Dark Knight Rises.  If you haven't seen it, go watch it and come back and let me know what you thought of the movie.  THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW!!!  Unless you want me to kill the movie for you, step away.  Now here are my thoughts on... The Dark Knight Rises.

Thoughts On... The Thunder Beating the Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals

Thunder Win Game 1 105 - 94
Hey there.  Tonight the NBA Finals tipped off.  The Oklahoma City Thunder are set off to go against the Miami Heat.  This should have been a Celtics Vs Lakers finals but those two teams bowed out a little earlier than expected.  The Heat outplayed the Celtics in their 7 game series and Thunder took it to the Lakers and took them out.  Anyways, this is not a post about coulda, woulda, shoulda... this is about the Thunder taking game 1 from the Heat and why Miami should worry.  After watching the first game of this series, thoughts came to mind and here they are.  My thoughts on... the Thunder taking out the Heat in game 1 of the NBA Finals.
