Nendoroid More: Dress Up Pajamas

Originally posted on Kixkillradio:

Isn’t it great spending the night over to your friend’s house, and pass the night just eating, talking or do girly things?

Thinking back of the old days, one of my precious memories is spending the night over at my friend’s house, and talk about silly things, dreams and crushes.

Ever since Good Smile Company released their Nendoroid More: Dress-Up Pajamas, I’ve been planning to make a Pajama Party theme for my nendoroids featuring Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (I Don’t Have Many Friends/ Haganai) characters, Nendoroid Sena Kashiwazaki, Yozora Mikazuki, Kobato Hasegawa and Maria Takayama.

These are just random photos that you would normally see in a girl wearing her pajamas, alone and with friends. Of course, there are other things that I didn’t include, I’ll reserve it in some other time using other nendoroids in my collection.

I decided a dim lighting in most of the photos because…

Bowlsby’s warning is a hollow attempt at slowing progress

Bob Bowlsby’s warnings about the change coming to college athletics are nothing but misdirection. (Kevin Jairaj, USA TODAY Sports)

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby took the occasion of the conference’s football media day to issue a warning about the future of college athletics.

The increasing pressure to better compensate athletes will change everything, he said glumly.

“If you like intercollegiate athletics the way it is, you’re going to hate it going forward,” he said. “There’s a lot of change coming.”

Bold statement.

At best imprecise.

More likely? Unsupported fear-mongering meant to slow the creep of change to a system that has handsomely rewarded Bob Bowlsby and his friends.

FEMALE REF:Cat Conti to call Big 12 games

(It should be noted: Bowlsby has been a voice for positive reform, too, pushing for significant changes to the structure and scope of the NCAA. He’s not always so wrong.)

The change that worries…

Unity #9 (Comics Review)

Originally posted on Shadowhawk's Shade:

Aliens and superheroes is a concept that mixes really well, as some 75 years of comics from the Big 2 has proven. Superhero comics today form the biggest share of the market and with good reason, they are the staple of the form after all. Occasionally creators go the full distance with this, as Valiant Comics has done in recent weeks with its Armor Hunters series, tying together its X-O Manowar and Unity titles, at the least. It has proven to be a good time for Unity in particular, a series that started last year, and with Matt Kindt’s writing and Steven Segovia’s art the overall experience has never been better.

While Armor Hunters deals with all the big moments, Unity has been dealing more with the little things that inform those big moments. This past week’s Unity #9 is proof of that for it doesn’t move along the Armor…

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 21st, 2014

1. Chase Owens (@nwachaseowens)-The former People’s Champ now has a #1 to add to his collection of accolades. It was an INSANE week for the NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion. He travelled up to Canada and came away with a record of 9-0…in ONE week. This is certainly not his first ranking, but it is his first time at #1. He’s having a fantastic year, picking up victories where ever he goes, most often at NWA Smoky Mountain. When we updated the IPR 100 last week, Chase was sitting at #35. A #1 ranking will certainly help his standing. #3 in the online poll with 44 votes.

2. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-Being the ROH World Champion has a lot of advantages, ESPECIALLY when you go 2-0 with two successful title defenses in one weekend. The Unbreakable World Champion went into Cincinnati and…

Robert Downey Jr. on ‘Iron Man 4′: ‘Why give up the belt?’

Are we going to get another Iron Man movie?

Marvel Studios has been unequivocal: Yes, someday. They see Tony Stark as being just as evergreen as James Bond. But the unanswered follow-up is: Will a fourth movie be with Robert Downey Jr., the star who helped launch this entire universe of interlocked superhero films?

Everyone is playing coy on that front, but we may find out more this weekend when Marvel starts filling in the blanks on all those untitled movies that have been dated through 2019.

When EW visited the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we asked Downey point-blank: Does he want to star in an Iron Man 4?

His answer wasn’t so point-blank. In fact, he starts to sound a little like a Magic 8-Ball as he tries to keep it vague. But the answer we gleaned was: Signs point to yes.

‘Arrow’ producer reveals details of season 3′s Big Bad and ‘Flash’ crossover episode

You say you need to know what’s going to happen on this season of Arrow after last season’s absolutely bonkers finale that saw the greatest freighter-based showdown this side of Lost?

EW caught up with Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg—who now has his hands full with The CW’s other new flashy (get it?) superhero show The Flash (now you get it). But since Kreisberg is pulling double duty with the DC Comics heroes, that means he’s got double the scoop to offer.

Perhaps most pressing is the question of which villainous threat Oliver Queen will face this coming season, which picks up six or seven months after the season-two finale. Crime is down and the police aren’t hunting Ollie—but peace never lasts that long in Starling City. Despite last season’s startlingly sinister Slade, this year’s villain will have to up the ante…

I'm still playing with the overall concept of this blog, it's not a news site, you won't find "scoops" or "breaking news" here. (For those I would suggest visiting PWTorch.com) What you will find is a fun take on WWE goings-on, and an angle here and there I think would be fun or beneficial. I have no experience professionally in the business, but as a fan for 20+ years I think I have some good ideas. Let me know what you think!
