Nexon's misogyny is no game

On its corporate site Nexon claims that “We are a global Entertainment Company providing differentiated and high-quality games.”

Quite frankly, after the sacking of one of their voice actresses for wearing a t-shirt stating, “GIRLS Do Not Need A Prince”, I think that the corporate profile should be amended to read that they “provide high-quality games and high-level misogyny”.

Apparently, the -- and I use this term loosely -- "gentlemen” in Korea complained and the company fired her instead of doing the correct and honorable thing of telling those that complained to go stick their heads down the toilet, wait an hour and then flush. But no, the company upheld misogyny.



The t-shirt slogan is correct. GIRLS really don’t need that prince, they should receive respect and equality.

But let’s take this a bit further and grind the heel in...

In a Psychology Today article, “Why Women Are The Superior Gender,” Clifford N Lazarus PhD states that “it is theoretically possible for women to reproduce without any male genetic contribution (i.e. sperm), while it is impossible for men to procreate without women.” [parthenogenesis - reproduction without fertilization]

It was announced in 2004 that sperm has been made from human bone marrow, so it has been speculated that it is beginning to look like, if a woman chose to do this, sperm from her bone marrow could be used to fertilize another woman’s egg. How viable these sperm are is not yet known - they look like sperm but do they contain the necessary genetic material? Time will tell. But, just think...if the hurdles can be scientifically overcome, the relevance of men could be reduced to at best their entertainment value (if any).

Hey, maybe Nexon could create a game whose highest scorer actually scored from time to time.

======

And as a side:

If you child is playing one of Nexon's games through its mobile games or online portals do a bit of site blocking until the company gets it head out of it corporate ass. Here is a partial list:

Atlantic Online
Combat Arms
Dragon Nest
Dirty Bomb
First Assualt
Law Breakers
Mabinogi
MapleStory
Riders of Icarus
Vindicates
Dungeon & Fighter
DomiNations
MapleStory Pocket

If you would like to see a full list of their game titles:

Maybe a letter to some of their partners like Lego Mobile, Warner Bros asking why they support this mindset might be a good idea too.

I got two quilts back from friend Cheryl yesterday. Ready to bind. I even found where I had stashed the binding I made for them. :)

It is such a bummer that I have to be out and about early this morning. It is dog rabies clinic in my burb and I’m working it. I would just love to have the time to reply to this one in length:

Republicans will not air February debate on NBC
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-34683871

Must admit that at first I could hardly sit at my desk for laughing. These people are all running for the highest elected position in the US and they can’t answer a few questions on issues that concern all of us? Oh please, is this a juvenile playground stomp you feet tantrum? Partly, but I get the feeling that they don’t have answers to the very important questions about the issues in this upcoming election and are trying to cover up their stupidity and lack of substance.

Shameful!

Have a good one! Gotta go give shots to dogs.

I worked a bit on a home improvement project on Sunday. I open a new tube of Liquid Nails and thought I had pierced the membrane. When it was not advancing out of the tube I gave it a good squeeze and ended up having to wash my hair. LOL! Any who, got that done and have to wait a bit and then on to the next phase of the project.

More of the second rectangle quilt.

September 15th

I’ve been quiet for a while now. Needless to say, life goes on. :)

It took a while for my hands to heal so I have just finally finished off three projects that will be winging their way to the quilter soon - just found a box for them. Here are pics of the tops with the backings they will be paired with.







All scrap quilts. Just trying to get the scrap pile under control.

While my hands were doing their thing I was able to knit. I had made myself a version of the Lehe shawl which did not stay with me. It was sent to keep a friend warm during chemo. I have also been working on a new project which I hope to turn into a pattern. I have to get the body pieces blocked and then work on the collar/hood. Yes, of course there is a pair of socks on the go in the travel bag. :)

It has been an interesting summer and I will admit I got nothing done in the garden this year. Geraniums were potted up and two hibiscus have found a home out there. They have given us non-stop bloom.

Have a good one!

A Lot of fun - Only Two Days Left

August 4th - There are only two days left to order the story bundle. Don't miss out!

Literary fantasy: nine books, name your price!
By Keith Brooke and infinity plus
Available for a limited time only, your chance to set your own price for a set of nine fantasy books, including a World Fantasy Award-winner and three exclusive ebooks available only here.

Literary fantasy bundle



The deal:

A purchase of $3 gets you the basic set of five books:

Spotted Lily by Anna Tambour
A Writer’s Life by Eric Brown
Lord of Stone by Keith Brooke
The Far-Enough Window by John Grant (exclusive to this set)
In Springdale Town by Robert Freeman Wexler
Even better, if you pay $12 or higher, you unlock four more titles:

The Ragthorn by Garry Kilworth and Robert Holdstock (winner of the World Fantasy Award, and exclusive to this set)
Facade by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Hairy London by Stephen Palmer
Little Sisters of the Apocalypse by Kit Reed (exclusive to this set)
The background:

When I first started talking with the fine people at StoryBundle about the possibility of putting together a bundle of books from writers associated with infinity plus we ran through a number of possible themes, but the one we kept returning to was Literary Fantasy. An elusive concept, perhaps – what marks ‘literary’ fantasy out from, simply, good fantasy, for starters? – but one that seemed to encompass the kind of books we wanted to offer: fantastical fiction with a sense of the magical and spiritual, written with a literary sensibility, by which we mean fiction with a love of language and an awareness of its place in the literary canon. As you’ll see from the books we’ve gathered together, that definition is deliberately elastic, inclusive rather than exclusive, yet still clear enough to bring a coherence to the set as a whole.

One of the first titles that came to mind for me was Stephen Palmer’s Hairy London, a quite extraordinary picaresque romp across an Edwardian London transformed by an overnight growth of… hair. In the streets, across the rooftops and bridges, submerging the parks. Everywhere. This is literary fantasy crammed full with alternate-historical and cultural references, but also one that never loses sight of the need to entertain.

About as unlike Hairy London as it’s possible to get and still feature here, Kit Reed’s Little Sisters of the Apocalypse is a novel that treads the indistinct boundaries between fantasy, science fiction and realism, as befits an author who describes her work as ‘transgenred’. A hard-hitting and impassioned story of a colony of women whose men have gone away to war and the role a gang of biker nuns plays in confronting the women’s deepest fears.

The appearance of Little Sisters of the Apocalypse in this bundle marks its first – and so far exclusive – appearance in ebook format. John Grant’s The Far-Enough Window is another title making its first ebook appearance, exclusive to this bundle: a classic fairytale that both delights the reader and cleverly challenges the form, from a Hugo- and World Fantasy Award-winning author. The Ragthorn, by Garry Kilworth and the late Robert Holdstock won the World Fantasy Award back in 1992 but, inexplicably, until now has never been published in standalone form – another exclusive first edition for this bundle.

It seems invidious to single out particular titles here from a bundle that manages to be so diverse in theme and approach, so all that remains is to urge you to explore what’s on offer before choosing the price you want to pay for either the core bundle or the entire set. From classic fairytale, ghosts and a deal with the Devil, through strange alternative pasts and presents to those biker nuns, there’s a bit of everything. Call it literary fantasy, or simply good fantasy, or give up labels altogether and simply read on.

A bit more detail:

The bundle is available for a very limited time only, via http://www.storybundle.com/fantasy. It allows easy reading on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindle and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) for all books!

It’s also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to our gift cards – which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle – and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.

Buying this bundle also allows you to give to worthy causes: bundle buyers have a chance to donate a portion of their proceeds to charity. We’re currently featuring Mighty Writers and Girls Write Now.

Late April - the 24th to be exact

It snowed here yesterday and it remains on the cool side. We even started up the wood stove again.

It is cat rabies clinic weekend and a chance to see all of the kittens in the county. :)

Happy Birthday Hubble!

Shame on the state of Arkansas who went the same way Indiana did with its discrimination law. Georgia thought better of drawing attention to itself and quietly did not move their bill forward.

Indiana is putting a women in jail for 41 years because she miscarried. They’re our of their f’in minds in the middle states.

And speaking of being out of his mind Rand Paul decided to jump into the presidential race. This of course, is a man who is anti-woman all the way. He calls himself a Libertarian but quite frankly he has no idea of what the term means. If you don’t either here is the Wiki page that explains it, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism . In short, it is that a person is entitled to live their life anyway they choose. But what the Libertarian party is actually saying by its actions is that you will have the right to live your life like they say it should be lived. No thank you!

It is starting to get MORON dangerous out there

Ted Cruz: Congress Should Strip Federal Courts Of Jurisdiction To Rule On Marriage Equality
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/07/1376154/-Ted-Cruz-Congress-Should-Strip-Federal-Courts-Of-Jurisdiction-To-Rule-On-Marriage-Equality

Over the weekend I finished knitting the Lehe shawl and I wound yarn for the next one - one I have been wanting to do for a while. It is an old victorian pattern and is shaped like an octagon. This is the progress so far, first the start and a bit further along - looks like a mess doesn’t it? Just wait until it is blocked.





Last weekend was also the first time that I felt like I had the energy to do a bit of house work - the cold that we had was awful. You know, for some reason this house just goes to hell and a hand basket if the cleaning schedule is not maintained. I got everything up stairs done except dealing with the cobwebs I found in a corner and one load of laundry.

The crocus, magnolia, forsythia and primroses are blooming and daffodils are up. The hyacinths in the back garden are also up along with the small Golden bells and snowdrops

In even better news the Time Warner Comcast deal is off..

Have a good one!
