Screw You, Crime!

Annette and I went to see the new Harry Potter movie tonight – it was pretty good, a lot darker than the last, which was nice. Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman acted circles aound everyone else. The kid who plays Harry Potter is actually a pretty crap actor, especially when compared with whoever is playing Ron and Hermione, and certainly when he has to share a screen with Oldman and Rickman. But still, I’m looking forward to the next couple of movies.

On another note, quite some time ago I spent many hours playing a game called Everquest, which was fun, until it got really old really fast – I was just grinding out the same old camp, kill, level, camp, kill, level crap. So I kinda swore off MMRPG games for a while. I was expecting not to buy another one until Blizzard released World of Warcraft. And only then because Blizzard have never made a game I haven’t enjoyed. But today I purchaed City of Heroes, a superhero MMRPG. And it’s TOTALLY EXCELLENT. I’m currently playing a fire-based blaster archetype called “The Amazing Flambe” on the Infinity server. I’m up to level 7, and climbing. It’s fun, different, the quests are handled well, the unique dungeon (Diablo style) is great, and the character powers/skills (and uniform!) design is unsurpassed. It’s awesome. I shall be spending a great deal of time playing it.

I should really go to sleep now, but….I ask you, does EVIL sleep? Does CRIME sleep?! No!

I shall not sleep while there’s crime to put and end to! Away!



P.S. Any advice on pithy saying to utter before, during, or after combat would be useful. Like, say, “The weed of crime bears bitter fruit!” and “I’m here to serve a big slice of justice pie!” or “OMG WTF U SUX!” … okay, not that last one. But something like the others would be great. Please, suggestions will be welcomed.


  1. I have to say, Emma Thompson was pretty brilliant as well, even if what she was best at was not being Emma Thompson.

  2. Sayings

    How about:

    Crime is the marshmallow, I am the “The Amazing Flambe”, prepare to be toasted.

  3. ooh, city of heroes.

    Must resisit MMRPG until we get a decent connetion.

    Then I shall be Unsanity Clause, by day a mild mannered lawyer, by night a man in a red suit with a big sack bringing lumps of coal…

    …wait that’s stupid. 🙂

  4. Behold the effect of my Amazing Apathy Ray! …..what do you mean ‘whatever’… …look it’s the only superpower I’ve got…
