Women in video games are incredibly sexualised. I loved Lara Croft when I was young, and she has grown with me throughout my life. When I was a child I did not notice her DD breasts and preposterous proportions— I saw a strong, independent bad- ass who I could look up to, a woman who wasn’t a ‘damsel in distress’.
Lara Croft may have broken the mould concerning women in video games, but she still conformed to the idea of a perfect woman. Men wanted to be in control of Lara and some claimed they wanted to take care of her. Women wanted to be her because of how strong she was and she had the ‘perfect body’. The majority of female characters in video games have big breasts, impossible waist sizes and outfits that are highly impractical when climbing up a mountain or getting into fights…

Can never be too prepared?
N.B. Just for fun!
‘They’re coming, and they’re coming fast…well, actually, they’re slowly shambling at a relentless pace, lusting after your flesh, blood, and brains with a mindless zeal. If Science Fiction and Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that we’re only one super virus, unleashed plague, or designer drug away from the Zombie Apocalypse!’ (via cbstructures.com)
Do you believe in Zombies? Are you worried that you are not going to be able to survive an attack? Do you know what to do to protect yourself? What will you do? Hide indoors and hope they don’t come for you?
If you have ever fretted over this matter and want to ensure that you are ready for the Zombie Apocalypse, all you need is a barn or garage, a big shopping trip to the supermarket, and something to protect yourself (we take no responsibility for what you choose to do with this…

Well Most of you Know I am a fan of Wings….Most of the Summer I goto every Bar I can find that serves Wings and after visiting some places on fire island I made the slide over today to Buffalo Wild Wings In Bay Shore, NY in the South Shore Mall. Now let me tell you looking at it from inside the mall is very deceiving as it looks so small, until you enter the main entrance out front and see how truly big it is.
When I entered I was Seated and had a Remarkably CUTE waitress named Amelia who basically Popped my Buffalo Cherry so to speak. Yes this was my first time and she was Gentle, Describing all the beer’s on tap and all the specials and such I found it hard to keep my eyes off her beautiful face.
So I ordered the Lunch Special Traditional Wings with Honey BBQ Sauce and a root beer, all the while fascinated by Amelia’s Smile.
I have to say the meal was delicious and the Wings were NOT spicy as you expect wings to be on Long Island but they definitely were Delicious. The Only Down side was Finishing and having to say goodbye to this Adorably Cute Girl if I was younger I would definitely have had to ask her out. But I will admit I tried to flirt with her and failed….
So if your ever in the Mood for Delicious Wings and find yourself near Bay Shore,NY, Head on over to the Mall and into Buffalo Wild Wings, Ask for Amelia and Enjoy the Most Delicious Wings in the Area.
All is Quiet, The Costumes are put away (for some), The Celebrities back to their private lives and the Fan’s Dispersed….
Im talking about NYCC Oct 13, 2012 as we Paid for our membership today after erroneously being Denied press access by the convention for no reason (that’s another story soon to be on Public News so we can’t discuss it yet..YET)
But I digress and this is about my 1 Day Experience at NYCC Jacob Javits Center and its a No holds barred Review with comments from myself as well as Overheard from a few hundred people…
We arrived at 8:30Am at Jacob Javits, Entered the green Doors and were put down in the basement warehouse for the Queue where we waited from 8:30am to 9:45am and then they allowed us up into the show floor which we reached at 10am. Now I myself understand about how new york has Union Rules but for the life Of me And 30 others we can’t understand why they can not open the show floor say 1 hour earlier, say 9am and then have their panels at 10am, this would give vendor’s and extra hour of sales, it would also make the fans happier cause now they can shop and then hit all their panels. It seemed to be alot of what people were talking about in the Queue and on the selling floor. We even spoke to 8 vendors and 2 artists from Artist alley who were all for it.
Time for First Panel of day : Lost Girl Which was scheduled 10:45-12:00 I believe but werent let in until 11am same time as the Guests but it was a fantastic Panel with Zoe, Rick and of Course the awesome Ksenia Solo. I left when they announced they were cutting the panel short and went to buy the Season 1 Dvd and Autograph ticket.
Then Off to buy a $70 ticket for Autograph and Photo of the Amazing G4 Star and Playmate Sara Underwood, Ran to Another Panel which was closed after 30 mins of starting (something New?) Back up to show Floor To wait online for Sara and were Pleased at how great she was. I felt a little bad for her publicist Jared tho as Javits Security Had started bugging him to either disperse the crowd in Aisle or else..(my words). In years past it was Javits security Job to keep aisle clear so people can walk and not stop in middle of aisle but, guess they did not have anymore than 3 security members working the con. Then Ran to Get a Wrist Band for Jessica Chobot, Ran to Cosplay Contest we ran and only 2 people Showed up…, Visited the “I Never Rest” Friend of ours Alexia Anastasio and Mina, Bill Plympton, Kevin Sean Michaels and then back to the Lost girl line to hang around for the autographs. For those who do not know it is a 2 hour wait online for autographs…I felt bad for the cast because they were late due to security again being MIA and squeezed into a tiny booth to sign for their fans…I wonder if Ksenia Bought any shoes and what video Game Zoe was thinking of playing or if Rick was contemplating a new song…But anyway after Lost girl I Ran to Jessica Chobot Line and saw how long it was so went to dinner downstairs in food court for a Hour. Came back Line didn’t budge and was second to last one. Once getting to Jessica She was such a sweetheart chatting and posing with me for a photo and autograph (only seems G4 stars do that)…Then I decided to walk around a bit and talk to people of their thoughts and take pictures…also we noticed the only press around were tv camera crews. Now we will be posting ours shortly but first we want to Show off one of our Special Correspondent’s of NYCC 2012 Jessica Fisher and here is her link to her photo’s with her permission…
