Recognizing Voice Actors.
Really, recognizing voice actors?
Yes, recognizing voice actors, I don’t know why but I find a bit of joy when I can compare character’s voices to later find out that they share the same voice actor. Two examples on this:
On the Adventure Time episode “Everything’s Jake” there are 3 characters that Jake meets throughout the story, Goose, The Mayor and Dr. Erik Adamkinson, that sound pretty similar to Phillip J. Fry, Zapp Brannigan and Professor Farmsworth from Futurama, that’s because they were all voice by the same person, Billy West, which I think is pretty cool considering that Bender and Jake are both voiced by John DiMaggio.
Nolan North and Steve Blum worked together innumerous times, they’ve had very iconic roles over the years and are two of my favorites voice actors, If I had to pick 2 franchises they’ve worked together and their characters in them, I’d pick Call of Duty Zombies’ Dr. Edward Richtofen and Tank Dempsey.
The first video game console I’ve ever owned.
I can’t remember what year I got it as a Christmas gift, but the console I got was a Gemini X Game, a Brazilian Famicom Clone, it looked like a Sony Discman with Sega Genesis/Mega Drive inspired controllers, a Famicom cartridge slot and strangely enough, a light gun that kinda looks like a Walther PPK, James Bond’s weapon of choice.
Little me was too dumb to understand that this console was a clone, but even if I did, I wouldn’t care, It was my first console, I was very excited to play it and I had a lot of fun doing so.
I can’t remember all of the games that were available on the cartridges and the system, so with the help of Google I found out some of the games I’ve played on it: Track & Field, Duck Hunt, F-1 Race, Lunar Pool, Hogan’s Alley, Contra, Jackal, Soccer, Spider-Man Return of the Sinister Six, Battle City.
The reason I’m avoiding Facebook recently.
Brazil is a country that is very divided when it comes to politics, some people lean more to the left while others lean more to the right, that’s natural people do have different opinions on different things, I will respect both sides of the coin regardless.
Talking about politics is important so you can grow up as a person and help the society you live do so as well, as long as your political view isn’t your only personality trait everything should be fine, which leads me to why I’m avoiding Facebook, political posts.
Sharing something on Facebook is kinda like a one way conversation, you just press a button to display something on your timeline and show it to other people in their News Feed, and that’s about it, unless you’re a famous person or a page you won’t get a lot of attention, apply that to politics and things will get a bit annoying.
You’re saying this because you don’t agree with their opinion…
Not really, sometimes I may agree with their point of view, my problem is the fact that Facebook doesn’t have a filter to simply block the kinds of post you don’t want to see on your News Feed , I’d rather just see what my friends are up to instead of blocking every page that posts political content because of something my friends shared.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to “throw shit” on my friends because of their point of view, you can post whatever you want on your timeline, If I don’t want to see certain content is my problem not yours, Facebook could at least help it’s users to block specific subjects they would rather not see, if you’re somehow insulted because of this post I’m sorry.
Anyway that wraps things up for today, I’ve made a possible thumbnail for future Random Thoughts, it’s probably not the final version though.
