Gaming: More Than Just Fun!
Ever since gaming burst onto the scene a couple of decades ago, many of us have been hooked on the industry and are now treating it as our main form of entertainment. However, gaming wouldn’t have been able to be as successful as it is today with the revolutionary changes that it has shown during this period and made it the beast that it is today, with many industry experts even saying that it could take over the film industry in years to come. One of the main reasons why gaming became the powerhouse that it is today is because we were able to game from the comfort of our own homes, and online with our friends and family. So with these innovative gaming platform created by brilliant minds, enjoy every game with your friends and family and even engage to your fans! Make gaming your source of funds with these new inventions here!
One of my favorite change from the gaming industry that changed the industry forever was the idea of moving away from wires and creating a wireless gaming zone. This has been done in multiple different ways including controllers, mouse and keyboard all being wireless now, and we could even now access wireless headsets which could work through Bluetooth to allow us to listen to audio from the game and our friends and family wirelessly.
Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You could ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theater. Playing video games also improves not just the skills taught in the game, but learning capabilities more generally. Why do you play games anyway? Get relief, enjoy and have fun together with these newly created gaming platform where exceptional gaming experience awaits you!

SUBLIME CINEMA #372 - THE SOUND OF METAL
What a beautiful film, told so directly, with so many powerful performances that it’s almost impossible to decide who is ‘best’ here, although Riz Ahmed has become an actor who is impossible to ignore. His turn in the Night Of was very good, but here he is great. And this film is so intriguing in how the filmmakers use sound to portray the process of gradually going deaf, without exposition or unnecessary storylines - I have not seen another film that gets into the subject with such frankness. A big chunk of this movie is spent in quietude, and it took turns that I did not expect.
I ended up watching it twice in a row, and I’m the better for it.

Mindy Kaling’s Velma Will Be East Asian and White People Are NOT Okay
Tom Ascheim, president of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics, revealed new details about the upcoming series. “Mindy Kaling project called Velma because she was excited to reimagine what Scooby-Doo would be like if Velma were of East Asian descent and lived in a different world. And in that version, which is going on HBO Max first, there’s no dog and no van but we have our 4 key characters through a different lens and I think it’s great. Allowing our creators to play with our IP is super powerful.”
Naturally, news of the historically white Velma being East Asian rankled a certain racist subset of internet trolls who lose their damn minds every time a white cartoon character becomes a person of color. For that matter, this isn’t the first time Velma has been played by a person of Asian descent. Singer Hayley Kiyoko portrayed Velma in the made for TV movies Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.

Matilda Alice Powles (13 May 1864 – 16 September 1952) was an English music hall performer. She adopted the stage name Vesta Tilley and became one of the best-known male impersonators of her era. Her career lasted from 1869 until 1920. Starting in provincial theatres with her father as manager, she performed her first season in London in 1874. She typically performed as a dandy or fop, also playing other roles. She found additional success as a principal boy in pantomime.
By the 1890s, Tilley was England's highest earning woman. She was also a star in the vaudeville circuit in the United States, touring a total of six times. She married Walter de Frece, a theatre impresario who became her new manager and songwriter. At a Royal Command Performance in 1912, she scandalised Queen Mary because she was wearing trousers. During the First World War she was known as "England’s greatest recruiting sergeant" since she sang patriotic songs dressed in khaki fatigues like a soldier and promoted enlistment drives.
Becoming Lady de Frece in 1919, she decided to retire and made a year-long farewell tour from which all profits went to children's hospitals. Her last performance was in 1920 at the Coliseum Theatre, London. She then supported her husband when he became a Member of Parliament and later retired with him to Monte Carlo. She died in 1952 on a visit to London and is buried at Putney Vale Cemetery. Her life story was commemorated in the 1957 film After the Ball in which she was portrayed by Pat Kirkwood.

unhinged YouTube channels to quench all your thirst for chaotic sciences stuff
TheBackyardScientist- pretty straight forward, a lot of ridiculous what if videos as in “what if we filled a pool with molten lava or dry-ice, electrifying sand etc. pretty chaotic, they destroy A LOT of fish-tanks in their processes
Styropyro- You like fire? you like LASERS? You like literal death-rays build from stuff you can buy from e-bay? Also sometimes there is completely unhinged science recipes (like making rocketfuel from sugar and stump remover) taking from late 19th-early 20th century DIY science books that make the anarchist cookbook look kind of lame
Michael Reeves- Fun weird robotics and coding, robots build from household items and whatever you can salvage anywhere, not as informative as the others mentioned but very fun and unhinged, also coding tutorials
JLservideos- cool gadgets and build inspired by pop-culture like Superhero movies, fairly in-depth explanations on the building process, still easily digestible, wall climbing shoes, taser gloves and human flying drones are just a few of the very cool projects
The Thought Emporium- The closets thing to a RL mad scientist YouTube has to offer, straight up bioengineering at some points, very bio focused in general, manipulating viruses, growing synthetic flesh and silk, and using human neurons to build a computer
Sexy Cyborg- Machine coding and 3d printing, hiding cool gadgets in everyday objects, building automated bartenders etc. self build anti-surveillance tech

When you realize who you live for, and who’s important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I’m gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it – and I lived it for me.
People think, because we're young, we aren't complex, but that's not true. We deal with life and love and broken hearts in the same way a woman a few years older might.

I wish we lived in a world where the "faith-based" genre of books, film, and television explored more than one faith.
