I mean this in all seriousness: Between this and the "bronies" thing, can someone explain to me when being a hip, cool guy or whatever you'd call it became all about liking things that 5-8 year olds like, despite being an adult man in your 20s (later? earlier?)? I absolutely don't get it. I don't even get it enough to judge it. It's just incomprehensible.

Jeremy, do you have a sensible hair-cut?

This world is too grey. I am surprised anyone prefers reading about the rise and fall of stocks to pitting Squirtle against Charmander, frankly. That is the real mystery.

Another awesomely close battle. Chandelure is a force of nature...
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Yes. It's hot where I live, so long hair is like wearing a feverish cat on your head at all times.

Another reason I detest my ancient enemy: the sun.

Thank you for the amusing image!

How do you guys like Ferris' commentary? I think he's pretty enjoyable.

I absolutely don't get it. I don't even get it enough to judge it. It's just incomprehensible.

Dzheremi,

Being interested in childish things has always been the honest purview of the nerd, the accidental oddball, and the geek.

However, with the advent of "Indie" crowds, it became cool to awkwardly dredge up even the most childish nostalgia in the name of "spontaneity" or romance; perhaps in an attempt to re-create some of the emotional pleasures of childhood to compensate for the drifting malaise of their adult lives (or just to impress chicks who feed off of that stuff).

When the latest wave of 21st century hipsterdom emerged, it swallowed up the Indie crowd and with it, the awkward dredging was assimilated.

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Hmm. Alright. Just curious. It would appear I'm not too much older than some of you (I'll be 30 in ~2 months), but I must've missed this development. But I also don't like/know indie music, so if it's something that happened specifically to those people then I guess it makes sense I don't get it. Have fun attracting self-consciously 'quirky' girls, I guess. :D

That I fear is a somewhat accurate however benign analysis. The more precise critique is more terrible.

I would suggest Wes Anderson's horrifying film Moonrise Kingdom as the distillation par excellence of the move toward "sincerity" as the critical text of this cultural tendency, which is not just limited to hipsterism and its bastard offspring like bronies.

Jeremy, in short, you should fear Starlight Sparkle more than any Islamist.

Not competitive but still:

my recent Leaf Green postgame team:


my recent Crystal postgame team:

(Psyduck being available early in the grass is so awesome)

my current Emerald pre-Steven team:

(Linoone being a slave)

After beating Steven I'd like to start a Platinum run with a team more-less consisting of:
Torterra
Staraptor
Luxray
Golduck / Floatzel
Houndoom
Gallade

If anyone wants to have a match I am sometimes at Smogon simulator random battles.

Out of the 4 I've played I find it the worst. It was easy to navigate, it had Pokemons of various types quite early in the game (unlike Kanto or Johto that had good water types in the 2nd half of the game or Sinnoh that had no fire types at all), it had very good Pokemon designs mostly and some of them very good tacticallywise but something lacked.

And too much water.
