But when we expect the Care Bears to literally defeat evil with positive thinking, it may be VERY unwelcome when they discuss Care-A-Lot’s latest fiscal report.
Well, gee. With a title you can plainly see, I wonder what this week’s topic could be about?
Using YOUR tax dollars!
…That’s right! It’s POLITICS! One of the jobs it is acceptable to deride as a wretched hive of scum and villainy, right up there with lawyers and your childhood dentist!
But what do huge
executive decisions have to do with WRITING? Well, let’s take a look, shall we?

On the whole, think of it as Monster Hunter’s bloodthirsty cousin and contrast the two.
The Blood Moon rises. The Hunt begins. The Nightmare never ends. And you, Hunter, are stuck in the middle of it all. With blade, with gun, with blood, slay the Beasts. Slay this Nightmare.
…Alright, now that I’ve gotten the obligatory “talk like a member of the fandom” intro out of the way, I’m here to talk about Bloodborne, which was free during PS Plus’s March rotation.
So here I am

‘Twas the week nearing Christmas, and all ‘cross the blog

In order to welcome this year’s Christmas day
When inspiration struck like a singing weevil
The zealot that bellows “Smite Evil!”

There ARE people like that, no matter how reasonable we try to make the world, because the world is NOT a reasonable place.
Stories are built on conflict.
Conflict is built on things which disagree with each other.
And that thing I disagree with CAN KISS MY-
What do I mean I’m doing it wrong?
…The only people who’ll like that are the people who agree with me?

…Well, I DO want to force my views on a larger audience…

52 weeks. And I’m still at it. There’s no getting rid of me, it seems!
