I've been slacking, but I have a new video

Yep, I've been slacking, but for good cause. I've been extremely busy with school and work and have had to take a break from editing and posting videos for a while, but regardless, I have a new video for anyone who cares. It's a video of me trying to shut the haters up but the haters prove right and I prove I am an awful Starcraft II player. Regardless, check out my youtube channel for the video, it should be live by 9pm eastern standard time. I'll update this blog with an embedded video once it finishes uploading and I wake up, other than that, I'm off to bed. Update: Here's the embed

Diablo III Beta Gameplay Video is Up....First of Many

So I got in on the Diablo III Beta finally, and I managed to get it installed, with alot of computer savvy I might add. The launcher and setup file were kinda buggy, but I worked through it using every trick in the book. The video is short, but there are more to come. Right now I'm working through a Demon Hunter, I'll add more videos in the near future. Enjoy!!!!!! Oh, and look forward to seeing some Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta gameplay vids soon, the NDA was lifted and I have access again this coming Saturday, I'll try to post later that night if I'm not too busy!!

We think too much and feel too little...

In light of the recent actions being taken against the protester's involved in the Occupy movement, I would like to share with you what is, in my opinion, one of the greatest moments in cinematic history.

Released in 1940, The Great Dictator, written, directed, produced and starred in by Charlie Chaplin, this film was released as a satirical commentary on Fascism, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party as well as the current state of affairs in Europe in general. The following is transcript of the speech given by one of Chaplin's characters towards the end of the film. In my mind, this is one of the most incredible pieces of movie history. This resonates with me so greatly and applies now just as much as it did in 1940. Enjoy while you read, and give the movie a watch if you get a chance!

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair".

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish. . .

Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written: "The kingdom of God is within man" Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, the people.

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let's use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age and security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!

. . .

Look up! Look up! The clouds are lifting, the sun is breaking through. We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world. A kind new world where men will rise above their hate and brutality.

The soul of man has been given wings, and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow, into the light of hope, into the future, that glorious future that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up. Look up.
