The Lounge of the Adventurer – lots of randomness with sprinkles made of comedy and a filling of our finest quality spite

daniel hawking vs. the infinite opinionation

Posted on: 14 August 2010

So, I went to see Scott Pilgrim. This will not be a blog post that describes the movie in all minute detail. Instead, I will ask you a variety of questions.

1.) Do you enjoy having fun?
2.) Are you willing to take a leap of faith and take a look at this movie while it’s still in a theatre, in order to get the best possible experience? It’s difficult/impossible to replicate the feel of seeing something on a big screen, which I’ve personally been learning.
3.) Do you enjoy video games?
4.) Do you enjoy comic books?
5.) Do you enjoy a bit of a love story? I mean, just a sprinkle. It’s not all about the love story.
6.) Michael Cera is in this movie. Okay. I guess I’m lucky that I basically don’t care for any actor. Does anyone else happen to enjoy movies without paying attention to the actors?
7.) Yes, it’s full of videogame hipster bullshit. It doesn’t take itself seriously. Is that okay with you? It realises that it’s a combination of a love letter and a parody.
8.) Do you possess any nostalgia for the past at all?
9.) Do you enjoy the Zelda series?
10.) Do you enjoy having fun?

I will now link some blog entries that are basically “Scott Pilgrim vs. the Common Populace”

Long story short: Give Scott Pilgrim a shot. Yes, there are elements where I am disappointed. Yes, there are scenes where I wish they would have done something else. Yes, it’s partially because I read the comics.

Really, if you want my actual opinion, read volumes 1 and 5 of the series. 1 sets the light-hearted tone, and 5 gives you the real meat and what the story’s about in proper.

My name is Daniel Hawking.

There are three fractions that make up this persona.

One of which is sealed closed via the physical realm of the world. One of which is unlocked via the medium known as the Internet. One of which is standing tall, watching over the wondrous horizon in front of him.

Of the first, this is the one most who have met me see, the one shunned, the one unappreciated, the one treated as entertainment instead of a colleague, the one shunted off to the side.

Of the second, only a select few have been able to meet. Coherency and truthful thoughts are the hallmarks of those knowing this fraction, as are trust and belief. Most of the dearest friends know of this section.

Of the third...? Revival of the finest order, as the phoenix of a prince rises from his own ashes. The adventurer, a traveler.

Regardless of fates, this is who I am now.

Daniel Hawking. Prince of Aralonia.

One of many.

A representative of Aralonia.

Together, the collective mindset of a nation.
