On another wrestling note, seen plenty of wrasslin' shirts both on locals and tourists, mainly some form of Bullet Club one or Kenny Omega. To be fair, that might just be because I recognise them.

Now I gotta go sleep though, it's midnight here and getting up early to go on the Bullet Train.

Being right next to Korakuen Hall helps. Tokyo Dome is near Suidobashi, where pretty much every wrestling related store in Tokyo has been located. There's barely anything left these days but if you're at the Tokyo Dome you're very close to the NJPW store. Also Toukoudan which is the largest wrestling store left in Tokyo.

Went to Japan last year and I miss it so. Can't wait to go back.

I'm gonna shoot: Jim Sterling sucked for a lot of the later portion of his Destructoid run.

But as Jim himself became more popular and more of a personality he turned into a caricature of himself, started getting really clickbaity, and would put really stupid shit like 30 second MS Paint pictures on the front page and call it an article. He basically reset himself when he went full independent with The Jimquisition and his content is 100x better as a result.

Post Sterling Destructoid is weird because the site seems to lack any kind of identity, and when someone tries to go edgy-hipster and try to be Neo Sterling *cough* Steve Hansen *cough* it comes off so fucking try-hard. Plus a few years back the site made a really hard push to suddenly become super PC after GamerGate became a thing, which I can totally admire, but I almost think they pushed too hard with it and some of their changes were stupid. I think it was partially because Niero was trying to sell the site and couldn't find a buyer.

I don't know, everytime someone I know goes "You have to check out this Jimquisition" he still seems like a caricature. Just not my thing I guess. I feel like I don't really care about "video game personalities" anymore.

He's still a caricature but this time he's a caricature who, mostly, still remains on point. Destructoid Sterling was way less tolerable by comparison. And since he was the chief reviews guy it meant he got almost all of the big game releases

I'm likely to platinum Gravity Rush 2 and I just got Ratchet and Clank which is a blast. Otherwise, projects around the house and dirty yard work will take up my time.

God dang it, don't mention household chores and yard work.

God dang it, Gravy.

But depending on what's going down -- you never know with these wildcard children -- I hope to beat The Witcher III DLC -- yeeeaaah! And then maybe start some other game. Maybe rewatch some Twin Peaks. Maybe even watch Eraserhead or Blue Velvet or something, why not?! It's been a while!

Destructoid Sterling was also a raging Gamergate level misogynist. I'm still blocked on twitter for calling him out on it back in that time.

How he managed to grow out of it and change still impresses me.

Well that's heartening. Not him changing, specifically, but knowing that sometimes people get better. That's always nice to see.

I still want the receipts on that first part, though.

Here's an article about him talking about it himself. It's great to see him change rather than doubling down on it like TB, with that said I still think the whole being cool with TB thing hurts his position a little.

Nice man, I am looking at used grills that are a few years old. I got a few emails going back and forth but I am hoping to get the price dropped a bit and pick it up this weekend. Really wanna make my chicken, steak, etc etc etc

I've seen some of the videos WWE has done on her training, she seems like a super, super athlete. Which makes me remember they really lack for any kind of spectacular high flying female, like Neville or someone is for the men. Lots of them do ranas or a moonsault but there's none that make high flying their thing.
There's no reason they can't.

That is true. Sarah Stock does have a lucha background. The question is there a women on the Indie's that is flyer like Neville?
