Fortnite with Chris 6/27/2020

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Fortnite has this huge update because there's a new season and I asked my friends what I should play and I guess they must not like me because they told me to play Zelda II.

I can't be the only one thinking that Link's getting a happy ending there. Anyway I'm running around the two towns in the beginning area I run into a guy that says this.

 What's that about? Must have been something they missed or maybe it's a joke? I don't know.

So when I go into a cave I can almost see nothing because to be able to see enemies in a cave you need a candle. Okay that makes sense but where the heck is Parapa Palace? I can't go anywhere else but the caves unless I'm missing something. So I did struggle though two caves so far and I got items but none of them were the candle. I think I see a palace in the game but I can't get there without the hammer! I'm really lost on what I'm supposed to do in this game.

Re-Animator (1985) movie review

Re-Animator is a fun campy film from the mid '80s that's a loose adaptation of some stories H.P. Lovecraft wrote for a magazine. The best thing about this film is they play around with a lot of ideas like what if we bring a person back to life and they keep bringing it up a notch like when they brought Dr. Hill back to life after his head was severed from his body to bringing his body back to life without his head. I really enjoyed just seeing the insanity of what was happening in the film escalate. I really like the practical effects in this film, with the only bad one I can remember was that cat that West brought back to life because the cat didn't look real at all.

This is a fun film but not great. I'm not watching it anytime soon but I might take a look at it again in October. I was able to see it for free on Hulu and if you can I'd recommend it. 7/10.

Protests would not be this widespread if Americans were taken care of

Right now we're seeing mass protests around the country with a couple of people looting and destroying property. I'll say people shouldn't be violent but at the end of the day you have to do what you have to do. I'm not here to say any that is necessary but instead could have been prevented by our government.

Despite the fake inflated numbers we see from The DOW Jones our economy is crashing and we're going to see greater unemployment numbers during this pandemic than what we had during The Great Depression in the 1930s. There were several ideas on how to combat this in the hope that this pandemic would only last a few months, we'd flatten the curve and even with some precautionary measures being taken like people continuing to socially distance most people would be able to go back to work. The most biggest idea was implementing a Universal Basic Income during this pandemic so even if someone lost their job or was temporally laid off they can continue to feed their family and not worry about having to get sick. Doing that would have really helped the businesses that did go bankrupt in the last few months because people would have had some type of income to spend. Sadly our government isn't beholden to the people but rather to their pay masters like Boeing.

Our government gave trillions to corporations and gave The American People scraps of a one time payment of $1,000 if you didn't make too much money which is funny because if you're a person who makes too much money you get nothing but all these companies get most of the money because they can afford to buy off a congressmen off. The fact we're in a pandemic in which we just had over 100,000 Americans died from and all these protests are happening but the numbers for the stock markets have been going up show the people at Wall Street know they're going to be taken care of. It doesn't matter that a lot of people live paycheck to paycheck Congress had to make sure to help out their pay masters first.

With these protests we're seeing the blow back to all of that corruption in Washington DC. I'm not saying that no protests would be happening right now but you wouldn't see it on this scale. If people felt like the government was there for them and on their side you wouldn't see people rioting on the streets. Lets face the fact that every one in five people are unemployed right now and Congress did little to nothing to help them out. If we were doing UBI and giving people $2,000 a month do you think we'd see any of the looting, property damage and rioting? Of course we wouldn't because even though we'd still be in the middle of a pandemic they would still have a source of income and they're not going to stand up against something that allows them to feed themselves and their families.

Police acting like thugs isn't going to solve anything

Last week police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota killed George Floyd after he was put under arrest for using a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. After that incident mass protests began to erupt all over the country. At this point many people have been pushed to the edge as we see mass unemployment and probably many people suffering from cabin fever from the pandemic leading to some riots and looting. I'll say nobody should be violent for no reason unless you have to protect yourself, your rights and freedoms then you have to do what you have to do. Sadly what we are seeing from many cops around this country just like with George Floyd they are taking things too far and it makes me think they either don't understand how we got here or they don't care. Acting like thugs and attacking people indiscriminately isn't going to solve anything and only throw gas onto the flame.
