Wallpapers Taking A While

Sorry we're taking so long with the big wallpaper site update. It's harder than the other ones for a few reasons:

(1) Wallpaper submissions are the most complicated part of the site
(2) We want to get rid of the resolution requirement altogether, but that requires a change in how thumbnails are generated
(3) We want to increase the size requirement from 2 MB to 4 MB per wallpaper
(4) We want to add a few new resolutions

We'll plug through it, though.

Ace Attorney Review Coming Soon

I'm going to post my full thoughts on the Ace Attorney live action movie in our newsletter, which will go out this week.

The short version:

  • It's weird as heck, maybe the weirdest movie I've ever seen, which gives it value
  • It's too long and the plot is too complicated
  • It's much darker than the video games
  • The fan service/references/and cosplay make it good pick for Ace Attorney fans (I recommend replaying the first game before watching)
  • As a fan of weird movies and Ace Attorney I'm happy I saw it, despite the flaws. I'd only recommend it to people who either want to see a completely weird/absurd/"WTF" movie or people who love Ace Attorney.

Ace Attorney Movie Madness

I just bought my ticket to see a screening of the Ace Attorney live action movie on July 15th. It's directed by Takashi Miike, a famous, gore-loving Japanese director, so it should be interesting.

Who here plays with perler beads? I've been making video game sprites out of them. It requires a tremendous amount of patience and time but the results are pretty rad.

New Orleans Rocks

I just got back from a nice trip to New Orleans. Awesome city for adults to visit!
