With all this time....

 As a proud nerdette, comic books has weasled itself into my fandom.  I've been reading comics on and off since I was a little girl. At the time, Manga and Novels just seemed to hold more of my attention. Don't get me wrong, I totally grew up watching any DC/Marvel animated movie I could get my hands on. I didn't jump into the comics craze until last year with my ex. We spent every Wednesday scouring the local comic shop, and I enjoyed every minute of it, I honestly thank whoever's on top everyday, that when we broke up that she didn't ruin my love of comics. Since Alex and I are going on a camping trip this labor day weekend, and like a real camping trip, away from all types of civilization, he keeps telling me to watch out for bears. So since, we're going to be very far from electricity, I decided to revisit my comic collection (I'm 6 months behind buying + at least a year actually reading them) and pull out the ones that I need to catch up on so I can read them while I'm away. Enjoy a small dive into my Comic habit. Hopefully, by the end of this trip I will be able to start back to collecting and just start automatically reading them! Who cares if I was literally a year late in picking up my favorite titles? I read faster than the average bear ya know.

Stay Nerdy,

Honest to Blog: Police Shootings

 This title is special. Honest to Blog only occurs when something else occurs at the same time that makes me absolutely furious. This blog will cover two main topics. Blatant Racism + its deathly outcomes (Baseless Police shootings). These events make me ashamed to be an american. No, today america DOES NOT deserve to be capitalized. Disclaimer: I don't hate white people. I honestly don't. I enjoy them just like any culture should be able to enjoy another. They learn, they observe, and as long as you aren't being disrespectful, you participate. I have never been a fan of gun ownership. I've never been a fan of guns in general. I've always thought they were quite cowardly, Being able to take someone out from a distance, and if they didn't want you to know, you never would. Whatever happened to the days of handling violent differences with a sword battle? I wasn't alive, but I feel like I would have preferred this type of dueling. I'm not saying that guns should be taken away. I'm simply saying that they are weapons. If you need a class to conceal and carry, then you need a psych evaluation. I wonder how many people/police officers have had one of those before claiming their badge or new gun? I'm a firm believer in "it's the user" because it really is. Guns are just weapons. They need a human counterpart to pull the trigger. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. My issue is, if people are randomly running around killing other people, for nothing at all. Turning away, wearing a hood, not following ludicrous demands, then why are we STILL GIVING THEM GUNS?
 The stuff going on in Ferguson is literally causing me to see red, and it irks me that we are only now being given the "police officers" name that shot him, and another thing, he shot a man, in cold blood, point blank range multiple times and then LEFT his body in the street for several hours! Why is he on paid administrative leave?!?! The ancient Greeks + Romans used to do that; leave bodies in the street or drag them around the town square when they wanted to embarrass and bring shame upon the family of whom the remains belonged too. Is that what Officer Wilson was going for? One of the really big things people are "going" for now, is that we (black community) deserve this as punishment for black on Black crime...Even if that was the case, how DOES THIS APPLY? This is not black on Black crime, this is a white police officer shooting a black man at point blank range for no reason at all. Just because as a community, as a people were "aren't together as one" does not give white police officers the right to around shooting dead unarmed innocent civilians. It does not make it O.K. to eradicate us. They have no issue with white on white crime, I see no police officers shooting white civilians down and leaving them in the street for hours, We are not the only group of people that do bad things. However, we ARE the only group of people being shot dead in the street like animals, or being left for dead on the side of the road, and that my friends is BLATANT RACISM.
 Even if that police officer felt that he was in the right and that he didn't do anything wrong, Why is there so much cover up and turmoil in Ferguson? Why are reporters and Alderman's being arrested for nothing (unlawful assembly my ass!) Why is tear gas being used on innocent civilians, and just being strewn carelessly down streets and alleys? If he felt he hadn't done wrong, and that he was in the clear, why was he in hiding? Why was the Ferguson Police Department, keeping him a secret, away on PAID administrative leave?? People who say Racism is dead, really need to wake up and smell the fucking coffee. It's not dead, it never left, it just crept into our books, our television, our news. It just got smarter, sneakier, shadier, hiding in our job applications, our housing applications, our school textbooks. CNN, Which used to host actual news, has just become a better paid Fox. Had the audacity to hold a debate over which word was worse: The N-word or "Cracker"? HOW ABOUT THE ONE YOU CAN"T FUCKING POST ON THE AIR?!?!?!?!?! Why is that even news, why did someone spend time putting it on the air? Because again it just shows that news, is just a racist podium.
 I'm unsure what to do about this situation. I'm so excited that I've found my soulmate, and it makes me feel even better that he's not a racist hick. You should see the way people look at us when we're out. Like I'm a dog that he's walking, it makes me so sick. It really destroys my faith in humanity, it's definitely why I've been a homebody lately, I just meet so many people who feel like they can just talk to me and others any kind of way and they can't! I was taught to treat evil with kindness, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. People don't really work like that anymore. Honestly, I'm not too sure how to handle it. So I write about it, and I bring awareness, and I move on, because that's all a person can really do. If enough of us do it, we can bring about change.

*HEAVY SIGH*
Now that that's off my chest,
I will get back to regular programming.
Stay Nerdy + Positive,

Youtube is ALIVE! IT's ALIVE!!!

 For Fridays post,
  I decided to include a link to a now functioning YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!!! It's been exactly one year since my last upload, and I just have to say it feels really good to be back! I'm trying to do one video a week, which will probably be uploaded on Fridays. Right now, there is a new intro vid, because the other one was a year old, and the video of me getting my first tattoo!

August's Wishlist

I'm moving back into the direction of personal style posts, and I'm so excited, but until I actually have daylight to take photos of myself in actual clothes, I've been prowling the interwebs reading various fashion blogs, that I hadn't even heard of before! Which in turn drew me to a whole bunch of online shops with super cute stuff that I hadn't found yet, which created this wishlist. To make a long story short (*too late*) I've put together a couple of outfit pieces that my wardrobe is missing terribly. All items are from Storenvy, Rose Wholesale and Dresslilly, all website I drool over constantly. I'm becoming really partial to satchels, so the two on the side *both from storenvy* Are at the top of my to buy list. 

New Fashion blogs I've been reading:
-In the frow
-Architect's Wardrobe (originally word Addict)

Until Next Time!

Makeup haul: You still do that?

Hey lovelies,
 So it turns out I'm a real girl after all! I went out with my doll Layla, the other day, and after delicious breakfast at Ihop, we headed to the nearest mall and walked around for bit. We stopped into Sephora, and magic was made. My birthday passed recently, I've been so busy that I didn't really do too much about it and I haven't even gotten a chance to blog about it, life just keeps moving on without me. Since I've been a member of Sephora rewards since Freshman year in college, every year for my birthday they give me a small gift. Lay and I walked around that store for a good half an hour at least! It had been so long since I'd even looked at makeup, that I went a little swatch crazy. I wish I had taken a picture of my hand before I washed it, I looked like a kid that had gotten into her mothers makeup drawer.
  I don't know if it is the oncoming weather change, but this particular time, I was so partial to purples!! Seriously, I wanted to pick up two purple lipsticks, a purple mascara, it was starting to get ridiculous. Unfortunately they were out of Coven, from Kat Von D. I was so partial to this color, that when they told me they were out, for five seconds, I contemplated buying the tester. But then I thought, ew, that's gross. But the color was so pretty, I seriously contemplated the thought... That's scary. So Instead, I picked up a darker purple lipstick from Sephora's Line, and Barcelona from Buxom. I'm a huge fan of Buxom's products. Like they are always the greatest quality for the best price, and for the longest time, I was a snob, and didn't wear anyone's mascara but Buxoms, it was that freaking amazing. I'm also just a sucker for really great packaging, if the box it comes in is eye pleasing, I might pick it up, even if another product is better, or it's not something I need, you can see how this gets me in trouble later.
 I'll be posted a youtube video later showing you swatches and all that great jazz. Yeah, I said Youtube, I've brushes off the cobwebs, gotten my hair done, and now that I've FINALLY got a replacement camera, it's on like Donkey Kong. You're going to be hearing from me so often, you'll actually start to ignore me because you need a break. (Don't ignore me, I love your attention lovelies!)

Until next Time!

The Handheld Mistress: What I've been playing

 So, I've finally gotten a chance to set up the PS3, and I've been playing Bioshock 2 pretty frequently. You all know how I feel about first person shooters, but Bioshock, is like everything I like wrapped into one. It doesn't even give me a headache. I do wish that the hacking mechanism was a little more difficult, a little more like solving a puzzle. Other than that it's perfect! I've even started to learn how to move around smoothly without running into things, and my aim is getting better!
 What is up with those little girls? They are so adorable , and so terrible scary at the same time. Why do they carry around a huge syringe draining corpses of their Adam? When I was that age, I couldn't even look at a dead body, and here she is dragging me all over "utopia" sucking corpses dry. What was I doing with my life back then? I could have been a video game character. I feel like I am too "soft" to be playing video games like this. They gave me the option to harvest or save the girl. I actually attempted to harvest the girl once, and she screamed and cried, and I had to look away, and then I went on a little further and the game froze!      That was enough to let me know never to do that again!
  I've really been enjoying this game, I play it every time I've got a free segment! It really surprises me how much I am actually enjoying a first person shooter?! It was always just in that list of genre's I wouldn't have been interested in or games that I just instantly skipped over. The past year really has opened me up to things, I wouldn't have necessarily tried before. It's showed me that I should be more open to the video games that are out now, but I'm sorry, Sport's games, that I don't get to interact with  I.E. (Jumping around like an idiot swinging my controller in the air like it's a tennis racket.) Then I won't be interested.  It's been challenging trying to learn how to play, but the most difficult thing that I've come across so far is the battle between Delta (me) and Big Sister (The knocked out character to the side.) She was jumping around all over the place, like freaking spider-man. It was really irking me, so I set her ass ablaze and then she was a lot easier to take down, thankfully, even though I saved the girl, she still gave me enough Adam, to be able to buy the ability to use incinerate (The ability to set bitches ablaze.) Another thing I really like about the game is the aesthetics and the background music, it sounds amazing, Like I'm literally rolling around an underwater Chicago, in a flapper's dress enjoying the roaring 20's.

Stay Nerdy!
Until Next Time,

HHM: New Games on the Horizon

I'm back bitches! Buying Video Games, Playing them and Blogging about them! I stopped by Gamestop while traipsing around the mall with my gal Lay, and they were having this HUGE, when I say huge, I really do mean HUGE Summer SALE! I couldn't help myself, honestly I couldn't the prices were so amazing! I only picked up four, so you guys know that my self control was seriously tested that day. I picked up Dragon Age, Bioshock 2, Brink and Arkham Asylum *GOTY* (Because I'm so tired of my sister asking if I finished it yet, so I just went and bought my own copy.)
 I was a little disenheartened that I still couldn't find a copy of Bioshock, the original. I've been looking for it for ages, on the cheap, so I could see if I would like it. I'm trying to expand my range of video games. We all know that first person shooters definitely don't fall in my gaming category. However, I spent all morning playing Bioshock 2 and I'm addicted, like I am seriously enjoying this game. Not enough to go get tatted or anything, but the game is pretty up there. I tried Brink and Dragon Age, but they were hella slow moving, I'll give em a couple more days of play before I make my final decision, but they might be going back. Vulcan Sugar and Spice will be getting a complete makeover soon, and with that comes changes to HHM. All you guys need to know is that this means that HHM is going to be bigger and better than ever! I've been playing some more games for my 3DSXL, I'll write about them later.

Stay Nerdy,

Villains That never quite got their comeuppance. (Spoilers!!!)

You guys all know by now that movies are kind of my thing. You know that I watch all kinds of movies, and you know that I am always up for seeing a new one (An old one I haven't seen) or even going back and watching old favorites! However, there is one big thing about movies that really really irks me. It's when the villain seems to get off super easy. That drives me crazy!! I'm going to highlight a few that still eat at me.

-Veronica Mars The Movie: Even if you haven't seen the television series, they put this character in the movie. I'm of course talking about Madison Sinclair, THE Queen of Bitchiness. The fact that she survived all three seasons of Veronica Mars, to actually show up in the movie, ticks me off, But I took a deep breath and dived into the movie because I knew she was gonna get it! Then when she showed that tape! and then came back at V with a snarky Comment, Oh I was ready for her comeuppance, and then what?! She just gets punched out? No! We made it through 3 seasons of her bitchiness, and we waited 9 years for this movie, only for her to get just punched out?! I don't know about anyone else, but I was expecting her to be knocked up with like 8 children and a no good husband, and struggling to make ends meet. I expected her to have contracted Herpes, and been stuck pining after Lamb for the rest of her pitiful existence. Punching her lights out was not enough... Gia got SHOT! And she was the nice one!

-The Mummy: I think I'll make this a two parter. First Part, Benny. Benny Benny Benny, have you no shame? He leaves O'Connell unprotected in the heat of war. He is leading "those damn yanks" into danger that he knows is there, just for cash. (Honestly, there really is more to the world than money. I promise.) Then he joins forces with Imhotep as well! He's a total betrayer, I wouldn't trust him to breathe the same oxygen I do! He might set it on fire or sell it to the highest bidder! Yes, he gets trapped inside a tomb full of treasure, eventually to die by being eaten alive by scarabs. But O'Connell tried to save him! There is only so much compassion I can muster and share. He should have been eaten by the scarabs before he got to the tomb, he shouldn't have even been allowed the pleasure of seeing all of the bounty.

-The Mummy: Part Two. Imhotep, Imhotep,Imhotep. He lasted through the ages didn't he? Two movies, and a cartoon series. Technically, the definition of a mummy, is a dried out corpse, wrapped in bandages, that does not arise from the dead and go on a killing spree. They generally stay in their sarcophagi and go on about their after life business. Why couldn't he do that? I mean the girl that he kept "trying" to bring back was dead, why wouldn't he just die and join her in the afterlife? (Yes, the movie would have only been like a half of a hour if that happened but still. He didn't get what was coming to him either. I am a firm believer of putting out into the universe what you want to get back...BUT sometimes, KARMA TAKES TOO LONG!

-Pokemon: Indigo League: Damian: I don't know if you guys have seen this particular Pokemon episode. This is the one where they discover Charmander chilling out on the rock waiting for his trainer to come back for him. I feel like Damian's attitude is incomprehensible. The whole point of Pokemon, are that there creatures that share the same world as you do, and if you love them and treat them with respect then maybe just maybe they will return that love and respect, and become your incredibly adorable friend, that could potentially kill you if they become too excited. NOT to abuse them until they are FORCED to create a thicker skin in order to win battles. This pathetic excuse of a "trainer" just left his POOR Charmander sitting on a rock, in the RAIN! If the flame on their tail goes out it's lights out and what does Damian do? He LAUGHS. HE FUCKING LAUGHS. Brock should have punched his fucking lights out. I don't give a flipping fuck if Pokemon isn't real and it was just something some guy created, they are living beings, and there is absolutely no room in my reality for their abuse!!! NONE! And yeah, he got set on fire and electrocuted, but in my humble opinion he still hasn't gotten what he deserved, they should have carried his ashes in a bag and set them in the corner of a jail cell for him to rot for the rest of his non-existent life.
(Pokemon, Animal, Human, ABUSE IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE *Topic for a later tangent*)

 *I'm sorry if you guys think I'm crazy or psychotic or whatever, but these characters here, really pissed me off, like to a whole nother planet. They created way too much pain, not to experience it for themselves. Plus this is my opinion (on my blog, sorry not sorry.) *

Until next time!

Opinion: Music of the week.

Hello Lovelies,
 So I guess this opinion thing is going to happen a lot more often then I expected it too. Thank you internet, for giving me the ability to forever be able to blog about something! Today, I shall talk about music that I have discovered this week on youtube.

Flawless Remix/Beyonce+Nicki Minaj: I was a ginormous fan of the original song and her new album. She brought something that hadn't been talked about in "mainstream" before. Women were more than sexual beings for men to use and enjoy. You could come into your own, and be your own woman. You can be independent, you could be whatever you wanted. The piece of Speech/poetry really clenched the song for me. When I heard that there was going to be remix with Nicki Minaj, I ran, and I mean flew to my laptop to go listen to it, and even as a fan of Nicki since before her jump off mix tape days, I am disappointed. They took away literally everything that flawless stood for. I'm sorry but I'm not buying it!

Really Don't Care/Demi + Cher: I love this song! Upbeat, catchy and just all around fun. I love that she shot it at L.A. Pride. People really really need to get over this gay thing. They are just people like you and me. It honestly isn't a big deal. The only thing wrong with them, is that YOU are trying to keep them from having the same rights as I do.

This is How we Do/Katy Perry: I just feel like Katy is at that stage where she can do and sing about what she wants because she's pretty well known. Many celebrities get this way, and they just have a ridiculous funny album that people listen to when they're sad. I feel like this is one of those songs, also I don't honestly really know what I watched... Did I really just see an animated twerking strawberry ice cream cone?

Anything Goes/Lady Gaga+Tony Bennett: I am biased. I absolutely love Anything Goes, Even though lately, Lady Gaga's music and I haven't really seen eye to eye. I really enjoyed the rendition she did of the title song! Super Jazzy, And her musical talent really shows through, no bubble dresses, no meat heels, just her, short blonde hair, powerful lungs and a beautiful voice. Just as it should be.


P.s. Now back to your regularly scheduled Programming.

My opinion: Trap Music

 Just a thought. Trap *gangsta* rappers are supposed to hard because they sell/sold drugs and that they run/are running their block/neighborhood right? That's something about this "new rap" that I don't really get... How are we supposed to be scared of you, if you are in the "studio making music" instead of defending your territory? What are you going to do rap me away, if wanna battle for your turf? Not only does your new single consist of like eight words, but they you go and put out songs like The remake Shell Shock, and you expect me to be scared of you? My fluffy octopus pillow is harder than you. Get over yourselves, it honestly is NOT that serious. Oh and just to ruffle your feathers? Gym Class Heroes version was WAY BETTER.

*sigh*
Now that's off my chest back to your regular scheduled programming.

Rants: Transformers: Age of Extinction (SPOILERS!!!!!)

I have a few qualms about this movie. Alex and I went to go watch it last night, and it was nice since we hadn't been to the movies in a while. We even got popcorn. Here's my list.

-Why do we not know the name of the only woman with any backbone in the entire movie?! The asian woman, who was in charge of the Chinese KSI factory, Why did they not bother to tell us her name? This frustrated me pretty badly during the entire movie! This is the fourth installment, Why have none of the leading women been LEADERS?! C'mon Transformers, women are watching you as well, and you are letting us down, hella hardcore! Megan Fox. Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Nicola Peltz. FAIL.  In case you were wondering her name is Su Yueming, and she kicked ass in this movie. As far as female lead goes, she takes the cake.

-Tessa's uselessness. She is the female lead. Yes her father is strict,
yes her father is poor, so is a lot of dads. Get over yourself! From
 the beginning something about that girl got on my nerves, but when
 things came down to the wire, and she was just being a whining useless brat, oooh, that irked me like no other!  You are standing on Tightrope anchors to get to safety! WHY ARE YOU CRAWLING BACKWARD?!?! It's not like the ship is SAFER then the building, the building with no human hungry animal bots that want to eat you! Then she couldn't even follow simple
orders, ugh she just really pissed me off. None of the female leads in the transformer series are of any use. NONE of them. That is so disheartening.

-The Realtor. Why did she have to be soo ghetto? As a woman of color, I am SO TIRED of hollywood portraying us this way. There are SO many different types of people in the world, so why are we being portrayed in only two ways. I was really super hoping that she was working with the transformers, or that her car was a transformer. But then she never pops up again!


-The Dino Bots. Just how long did Lockdown have them caged? If they literally came as dinosaurs roamed, and then were caught by lockdown. Optimus set them free, but where would they go? Would they take up space at the creation museum? Alex says they'd get re-scanned and then live among us, but if they are really that OLD, do they even have the ability/technology to re-scan into a new form? If so, they were pretty uncivilized, so would they just eat people, as cars? Who would teach them how to blend in??? I think it was kind of irresponsible for Optimus to just let them out like that.. But maybe that's just me. 

-The CIA's Pr DepartmentHow in the WORLD is the CIA gonna clean up Cemetery Wind's mess? Like it was probably a little feesable when they were in texas, but once they moved to China, that shit hit the fan, How in the world are they gonna cover that up? How in the world are they going to fix it? I mean I know  its China and the government over there pretty much covers up everything, but seriously... They destroyed an entire bridge and was dropping Metal Vehicles from giant space ships, There is not enough WOOL in the WORLD. If I worked in that department, I would have Definitely put in my two weeks. The guy responsible has a pot sized hole in his chest, he's not going to be held responsible, or even be able to explain it.

 Overall this movie gets 2 out of 10. It could have been better in every way shape and form. Come better hollywood, we pay your bills, at least stop feeding us shit.

Stay nerdy Sugars,

Gamer Famelle: Mariko of Gamer Wife

 Gamer Famelle is back and with a whole new host of kick-ass gaming women!! Today, it is a huge pleasure for me to be featuring Mariko of GamerWife. One of THE most professional gaming blogs, on my to read list! Without further ado, lets get this segment on the road!

Displaying Geek With a Gun - Big.pngGF: Favorite Console? DS/XBOX/PS/PC?

MM: The PS3 was the first console I owned as an adult, so I'd have to say I'm a PS girl, but still do most of my gaming on my PC or my tablet.


GF: Favorite Game character role model?

MM: FemShep! She's the ultimate female superhero because
 being female for her is completely incidental. She's the first 
character I really identified with and put myself into.

GF: If you could be any game character who would you be and why?

MM: Oddly enough, probably Joker from Mass Effect because he gets to fly the Normandy and I'm kind of a space ship nerd.

GF: If you had to live inside a video game which one would you choose and why?

MM: Little Big Planet, because everything is so fun and happy and positive. Or Mass Effect, because space.

GF: Did you come across any videogame Soundtracks that just spoke to you?

MM: Even though I can't play the game myself (I just don't have the reflexes) I was playing the soundtrack for Hotline Miami on a loop for about 2 months straight! It's so pulsing and spooky, perfect for concentrating at work.

GF: How long have you been gaming?

MM: That's kind of a tough question for me because while I did play NES as a kid I kind of put gaming aside for a long time until I moved to Montreal and suddenly found myself working in the industry and playing games every day for my job. I guess if we're going by when I started gaming consistently, then maybe 6 years? But if we go from when games first entered my life, then it's probably closer to 25 years (yes, I am that old).

GF: What was your first game/console?

MM: Super Mario Bros. on the NES, although Bubble Bobble and Dr. Mario were more my games.

GF: Do you share gaming with your significant other/Children?

MM: YES! I would definitely attribute a lot of my love for games now to my husband Rick. He's the main gameplayer in our household and we're always looking for games we can play together. We just started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic together while he's away on business and it's been a great way for us to spend time together when we're on opposite sides of the continent.

GF: What Video Game Crossovers are you wishing were real?

MM: I saw an illustration mashing up Fez and Katamari Damacy that made me really excited, but I think that game would break my brain.

GF: Any Games that you've been obsessing over but haven't bought yet?

MM: Actually, between me and Rick we probably have all the games I've ever wanted to play. lol The hard part is finding time to play the all.

GF: If your house was on fire and you had to take three things related to gaming what would you choose and why?

MM: The video game character beadsprites that we used as table markers at our wedding, because they remind me of our big day; my Samus at the Farmer's Market print because it cheers me up; and our PS4 because it gives me movies and TV and games.

You can check out Mariko at her various internet hangouts:

Until next time Stay Nerdy,

The worst movie ever:Doom Asylum

  Everyone knows that I love movies. All kinds of movies, comedies, animated movies, and especially scary movies! I absolutely adore scary movies, ones that actually do a good job of scaring me, and then ones that don't do the greatest job. One of those movies would be Doom Asylum, an 1987 Marx original. My dad and I have this thing, we like to watch really bad scary movies and laugh ourselves silly. I've written about a few of the ones we'd happened to come across before, but even we couldn't anticipate coming across this gem.
  Doom Asylum follows eight teenagers as they trespass upon a deserted asylum with a horrible legend! Ten years ago, a couple in the love were heading on vacation and were involved in a terrible car crash, which ended up in the death of the wife and the man in pretty bad condition to be sent to the morgue. Wherein, he was skinned, even though he was still alive. He killed the coroner and assistant and then went on to kill all passerby, in hopes of bringing his beloved back to life.
  Apart from the HIDEOUS eighties fashion, yellow and white plaid board shorts anyone? The acting was some of the worst I'd seen in my entire life, even worse then me and my sisters debut in the haunted mansion, (thankfully no one ever will see.) It was an entire laugh fest. The movie only lasted an hour and eighteen minutes and we laughed for everyone of them.
  In great eightie's fashion, The only black people ended up together and Dead. There was a blonde in a horrible swimsuit, and I honestly could write all day, but it wouldn't do it justice, you just have to watch it.



Please Please, I'm begging you, As soon as you see enough talk to me in the comments.

Keep it Nerdy Gang,
