On weekdays, Fisherman Andrew commutes to Route 12. He brings a lawn chair, a good fishing rod, and parks himself down at the docks for eight hours in the same spot. It’s a ritual of sorts, taught to him by his father, who learned it from his father. They all believe that it’s the perfect place to catch the most scrumptious Magikarp. Don’t you dare get on Andrew’s bad side, because his trio of level 24 Magikarp will splash, splash, splash those swayed leather shoes of yours a new one.

Pocket protectors have often been considered as nerdy or geeky. How many people stuff pens in their chest pocket to justify this ink-defending accessory? After the third tide-to-go resistant stain, I’d stop holstering pens near my nipple all together. This would make room for the infinitely cooler Pocket Monster Pocket Protectors (Pokémon is a portmanteau created from smashing “pocket” and “monster” together). Cradling a Squirtle or a Bulbasaur in your collard shirt pocket is the nerd equivalent of a Chihuahua nestled within a fashionista’s oversized purse. This shirt let’s you live this intangible fantasy.

Game Review – HarmoKnight

Stripped of the singing and dancing, Glee’s high school dramatics are simple. Trite even. It revels in discussing social issues – like homophobia and, just recently, Chris Brown – to varying degrees of success. But that’s not the point. Other than the requisite Brittany quips and Sue Sylvester’s bullying, people are tuning in to hear their beloved characters sing “Call Me Maybe.”

Starting a game of Pokémon is like going to an animal shelter. Before entering, you’ve decided that you’re going to get an orange kitty. It’s what you’ve always wanted. Once inside, surrounded by adorable animals that crave your affection, that initial desire wavers. “Well” you murmur as you rub the cutest two-year-old cat’s fluffy tummy, “maybe I can get two!” Pokémon refuses this change of mind. You select one and only one, and you’ll never get the other two.

Picking which “Poketryoshka” shirt to buy is a little easier. Since I already have a Charmander shirt, it’s a toss up between Squirtle and Bulbasaur. And if you can’t decide, don’t. Buy all three!

*Update: They added Squirtle! Yippee!

The world of Pokémon and Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are are pretty similar. Although Ash lives in a land filled with creatures, whereas Max only imagines it, they both go through wondrous power fantasies as they garner the affection of mysterious monsters. Ash becomes the Pokémon Champion after defeating the Elite Four. Max intimidates the scary beasts into becoming their king. If Max’s imaginative romp was more like that of Ash’s, I doubt a warm supper would lure me out. It’s okay for people, not just pokémon, to eat Rare Candies, right?

Geometry proofs. World War II discussions. Dodgeball. These would’ve been a lot more fun if these game characters were your teachers.

I hope to make a new video blog once a week. Given time they might even be adequate! My eyes in the screenshot make me look…uhhh…yeah. Trivia question: which Pokémon makes that sound at the end of the video?
