Kony 2012?

Danny gives his take on Kony 2012 from what he’s read and seen in his limited research.

Stop at nothing? Sure, I’m doing nothing, therefore I shall stop. In more seriousness, there should be no debate about the fact that child soldiering and prostitution is an atrocity. As a result, Kony must be brought to justice, more specifically, the International Criminal Court in The Hague. However, in order for you to not think that I am a maniac as you read the rest of this post, you’re going to have to watch this excerpt from this week’s 10 O’Clock Live featuring the hilarious (sometimes disgustingly funny) Charlie Brooker talking about Kony 2012. And, of course, duh, if you haven’t actually seen the ACTUAL Kony 2012 video, here it is. It is nearly half an hour long, so make sure you set aside enough time to watch it and have enough sustenance for the duration, there are no commercial breaks.

Have you watched the videos? No? Okay, it’s not like I’m doing anything else, I have all the time in the world to wait, this post stays this way regardless if you’ve watched the videos or not. It’s just a block of text, it can wait till you’re finished. Or you can just ignore the links and just read what I have to say, be intrigued or disgusted by what I say, and then you will click on the links. Either way, just make sure you watch them.

I’m not going to be telling you to join the movement. In fact, I’m not going to tell you to do anything. That’s your prerogative. If you decide to help the cause and bring Kony to justice, great! If not, well, cool! I’m not going to tell you why Kony is bad and therefore needs to be stopped, that’s pretty well covered by the video and other Kony Movement members. I’m here to tell you why we should take a step back and look at what’s really going on. Continue reading

Assassin’s Creed III Reveal Trailer!!!

For better or for worse, the Assassin’s Creed series has left the medieval era for good. It has now taken up a new location altogether: Colonial America. Gone are the sprawling cities where you can climb buildings and jump across rooftops (although we might get some through very old New York or Boston?). These are the days of tree climbing and jumping from branch to branch like a monkey! Continue reading

A Study in Sherlock

Danny tackles an upcoming CBS TV show. He doesn’t like where it’s going and he’s going to explain why.

This may not be common knowledge to the rest of the world, but I am a closet Anglophile. I like to think of myself as a person who sees the best of both of the centers of the English speaking world (Australia doesn’t count, apart from beautiful women and extremely dangerous fauna, they don’t really have anything). Being an American (some would say a bit too patriotically), I tend to see all things American through rose-tinted glasses. However, there is one thing that I outright REFUSE to stand by and that is a new upcoming TV series by CBS called ‘Elementary.’

Having not seen the pilot yet, I can’t truly judge it, but I still will, because that’s what I do. A quick summary of Elementary is that it puts the stories of Sherlock Holmes in the modern day, New York City, to be exact. It is said to star Jonny Lee Miller of Trainspotting and Eli Stone fame in the all important role of Sherlock and for the venerable Doctor Watson? Wait for it… Lucy Liu. Yes, Lucy Liu of Ally Mcbeal and Charlie’s Angels remake fame. They made Doctor Watson a woman. I just can’t imagine why that is.

NO!

So… Into the Abyss that is the Internet! … Properly!

Hello World!

Yes, very cheesy. I have decided to use the default title that WordPress gives bloggers when they first start a blog as a way to start my very first post. It is also correct to realize that this is in fact, my first blog.

For those of you who know who I am, it would seem like an oddity to you. For those of you who don’t. Hello! My name is Danny Vittore and I am a contributor to CRACKED, Game Breakers and the Author of Back the F*CK Up! which you can pre-order on Amazon right now! As one can infer, I have a reasonable presence on the internet. Also, don’t worry, I won’t be constantly plugging my work like this (but seriously, buy it, it has pretty pictures AND color AND reasonably funny writing by me!), but I thought I should, for once.

Well, it’s getting late where I am so I’m going to call it a day on my first blog post. I’ll try to update this with my many musings on many subjects and whatever else I feel is worthy to go on a blog. Please be patient, I am a college student, I have many obligations that are not related to the internet.

Well, at least that’s what I like to tell myself.

Till next time! Toodles!
