Just letting you know that new galleries go up on my main website regularly (three went up today). Unfortunately there is no html for the galleries that I use on Wordpress. So I won't be able to post them here. Sorry about that. I will post a link however when they come up.

I have a lot of tattoos and they are just building. For now I am just going to use this post to hold them as I get them. I will eventually post individually about any meanings/situations/etc around them. Also many of these are old photos, I will update them with new photos this week.

It has been awhile since Jello and I have gone out other than maybe to a movie, so we decided to see the live tour of Welcome to Night Vale.

We started by going to Panera first and splitting an Asiago Steak Sandwich (Jello loves Panera), we then drove to the Neptune and waited in line for about an hour and a half. Finally we got to sit and watch “Murder Mystery Theater” episode (pretty sure that is the episode name) from Welcome to Night Vale.

It was a LOT of fun, the show was great, but let’s be honest I would be happy if Jello and I just sat in the car and spent time together.

We went down to Phoenix Arizona in March 2017 for Wolsey's surgical consultation. If you want to read the brief post about the trip go here, if you want to read about the doctor's appointment/transition surgery go here.

Still can't do better than the Nazis, mysterious films, alternate worlds and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa.

It's the next season of the same world. We pick up almost immediately where we left off, having met the Man in the High Castle, the Nazi conspiracy and the drive to make a H-Bomb by the Japanese.

I can't talk very much about the plot itself if you haven't seen it. It does ratchet up the intrigue, who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. There is more of a focus inside New York (the Reich) and Mr. Tagomi opens up a totally new storyline that comes together at the end of the season.

It humanizes all the main characters, including  Obergruppenführer John Smith, and Inspector Kids. It doesn't make what they do ok, so no apologism for their behavior, but it does show you why they do the things they do. Like all people, even villains, they are the hero of their own story.

This season was a little different, I found I didn't like Juliana or Fink as much. Not acting or the writing. They were great, but their storylines took them into places I didn't like and their character's twists and turns made me not like the characters themselves as much.

Pros: Once again, great acting, immersive sets, an compelling story and I love Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Mr. Tagomi. I liked him last season, but he clicked with me a lot (well so did John Smith, but Mr. Tagomi took it away).

 Cons: Once again, I don't think there is an overall con, but because there are so many roles you will probably hate someone... I still can't stand Joe Blake, not the fault of the actor, he is good, just don't like the character, this season he whines an awful lot and I just can't stand it.

Hands down a great show, I still can't recommend it more.

Youtube LP Playlist: Assassin's Creed Unity
Systems: PS4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Assassin's Creed Unity is the 2014 release of Assassin's Creed.

The game starts with you playing a nameless "initiate who is a player of "Helix" a gaming device produced by Abstergo that allows access to many different genetic memories.

You begin play by watching some backstory with the Templar de Molay and then forward to 1776 as Arno Dorian, a nobleman's son (and Assassin). Your father is killed and you are adopted in by a Templar Grand Master and his daughter Elise. The story skips ahead and you are seeking revenge for the death of your adoptive father and you are estranged from Elise. The story is about your seeking out who killed your adoptive father and seek revenge while you join the Brotherhood.

The story itself is nothing to write home about. I don't want to go into details and spoil any possible surprises (not that I found most of them actual surprises). The missions themselves based on the story were lacking in any real depth and were fairly repetitive. I know I shouldn't compare it to ACIV Black Flag (my favorite in the series) but it isn't even close.

The story about you "the player" when you surface out of Arno's memories is even more blasé, no meat, no outside interactions, just additional "in machine" machines with those in the brotherhood talking to you via audio. Definitely not a lot of story.

The controls themselves were just as horrible as they ever were. The fighting is unwieldy, but they did make the free-running a bit easier so that is something.

For character building they broke your abilities up into some weird leveling system even more in depth then Black Flag.It became a frustrating exercise to try and raise up yourself to do things you could do out of the gate in the prior games. The worst part is Ubisoft went even more overboard with the collectables. It was bad enough that I quit collecting less than halfway through. It just is a cheap way to say your game takes longer than it really does.

Oh, and they push the multiplayer even more. However, it was so bad I didn't even really touch it so I can't say anything more than I hated it.

Pros: The free-running is a bit better (I did get hung up on things more), and it is what you expect, more Creed.
Cons: The leveling system and flag/item collection has to stop. It is just getting worse.
