The Future of Marko Man

So as you may or may not know, I am going to reboot the entire Marko Man series from beginning to end, completing erasing its original continuity to create a mythology that will be official in every sense of the word. Technically, this would be the fourth time I’ve ever done this, but this time, I’m sure that I have a winning formula. I’ve been writing with these characters and in this style for years, and ultimately, I’m ready to bring Marko Man and company to the big dance.

Unfortunately for some of that company, they won’t make it; many characters have been cut from the final roster. In terms of heroes, most of the big names made it, and those who are missing will likely not surprise you if you even remember them. However, a number of epic villains from both the past and the present have been removed, either because of the nature of the villain or the fact that they don’t fit the mold of how I’m trying to tell the story anymore. Some of the villains may have references to them or may return in a smaller fashion, but there are some interesting foes that are gone, and in some cases, replaced.

The action will be toned down a bit (not decreased, toned down). Early Marko man stories had a heavy DBZ influence, but just like DBZ to DBGT, the more power that was available to the characters, the more ridiculous the action was. Now obviously, I was able to compensate where DBGT didn’t, but still, I’m toning it down, and it’ll be for the better. In the end, you will actually give a damn about the fights because they’ll be more about skills and match ups rather than who’s the most powerful, and that should make the fights much more memorable.

Marko Man  had originally discovered his powers in the 4th grade. In the latest reboot, he will discover them in the 10th grade. I changed this for two reasons: 1) a better chronology between the stories and 2) better writing overall. I was reading 4th grade Marko Man, and I don’t think I’ll be able to maintain that voice without lol’ing at my own writing.

A number of characters can and will be relocated. If you’re a character in the stories and you didn’t live in Rosedale, chances are you might be living in Rosedale. If you went to a high school that wasn’t Edison or Jamaica, you just might be snatching up a diploma from one of those schools. I might even be removing Jamaica High School from the list of schools where the heroes come from! Why? Writer’s convenience, that’s all.

Writer’s convenience is te reason a lot of these changes are being made, actually. When I was writing them before, I made certain things “accurate,” since characters were literally based on friends and what not, but the Marko Man series isn’t a drawn out biography or a memoir. It’s a series of super hero fiction books. The only real “non-convenience” in a sense is limiting power, as it’s easy to just separate warriors via power levels, but I’m amped for the challenge of thinking up the action based on skills and stats, strengths and weaknesses, and I’m sure that it’ll make for a much more interesting story.

Finally, how many books to expect? Well that… I’ll keep to myself. The number that I have in my head is “weird” to say the least, and it’s subject to change anyway, since I am a creative genius and might come up with a phenomenal idea on the fly…

PS: I’m definitely going to start writing the books sometime this year. I just have no idea when they’ll be available for the public.

PPS: I’ll try not to tease about the books via this blog… but I can’t make promises.

Logic vs. Risk

So in general, it's always a risk to go against logic.

But have you ever thought that maybe it's a risk to go with logic?

A few days ago, I'm chilling with the boys, and we go to an AppleBees, and we meet this waitress named Mandy. Now I was kinda feeling her, and I think she was kinda feeling me. Unfortunately for me, I'm totally aware that I am in no condition to maintain a healthy relationship, so outside of the minor flirting that seems to naturally be going on, I make no further moves. We leave with smiles on our faces, and that was that.

The rest of the day? Random and Phenomenal.

Two days later, my heart is upset. Mandy is on my mind, regardless of the fact that I'm in no condition to support a relationship. Sure I could have "befriended" her and whatnot, but come on... I'm done with that friend zone shit. Undoubtedly, I'll get over it in some way, shape, or form. Still... maybe I should have made a move...

Moral of this story: Everything is a risk, even the non-risky stuff.

Rebecca Black Sucks

It's really that simple.

I'm not posting the video here because it already has too many millions too many views.

No skill. No great sound. No value to the world at all.

But apparently, it's making millions of dollars.

Do I have to really dumb myself down to make millions of dollars, or can I stand up against the odds, maintain my intelligence, and make a solid living?

Or maybe the Illuminati does exist, and Rebecca Black is simply another Illuminati pawn............

Ignorance: The Final Frontier (for some)

Sup peoples! I had a beautiful weekend, nothing special, just simple and beautiful.

And at the very, very end of the weekend, I was showed the following video...

Now at first, I was thinking to myself, "Here we go again." It's a sad day when black people have to act ignorant and prove all the given stereotypes true. However, at the end of the day, the white lady that started this is just as ignorant. I'm not sure why she was upset at them eating... maybe she thinks that eating on a train is illegal or something. Well it isn't.

Nothing there at all about being unable to eat on the subway. So it looks like her ass whooping was... deserved. Still, there's no reason that these adults (the ones involved, not the ones watching and waiting for the fight) couldn't diffuse the situation for it got this way, but nope. Ignorance prevails. The white lady is ignorant for thinking that eating on the train is illegal, and she's ignorant for saying that only animals eat on the train because I've never actually seen an animal swipe a Metro Card to get into a subway. Of course, the two young black ladies are ignorant for the result. There is no reason that this had to be continued the way it was (personally, I would have insulted the lady for the whole ride, I mean between my food and her weight, there's TONS of material, pun intended).

And then, there's little gem of a video.

I lol'd.
This guy... he's so real. I subscribed to him because of his realness.

Nintendo 3DS, Mario Sports Mix, And Casual Gaming

Nintendo 3DS

So I was hyped when I randomly visited Nintendo World and saw that they had 3DS's on display. The hype soon ran away when I saw the games that were being displayed.

Pilotwings: Never cared for Pilotwings, though I hear good things about the series.
Some Submarine game: First impressions last a lifetime, right? Well, I didn't like it's first impression.
Nintendogs 3D: No
Lego Star Wars: The game I spent the most time on, which was, maybe 3 minutes.

I didn't like the selection of games that Nintendo World had available. I was hoping to see Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition, Dead or Alive: Whatever the Subtitle is, MGS3: Snake Eater, or Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time 3D. Hell, I'm willing to bet that the Kid Icarus game would have been better than the shit available, as it's claimed to play like a Star Fox game, and I'm all for Star Fox.

The 3D effect was slightly disappointing, however. For whatever reason, I expected it to pop out, but instead in expands in, kinda like those optical illusion books you see nothing but a silly pattern but after you focus a bit you see a real image. That's essentially what the 3DS does, presents games via this optical illusion... while things move. And this is probably why people catch headaches, because I don't think the human eye is designed to handle that.

Super Mario Sports Mix

I also played this game on the Wii. Highly disappointing, definitely NOT worth the $50 to get it. I only played basketball and dodge ball, but that's all I needed to figure out that this game was trash. The games are devastatingly easy; even its hardest settings won't present much of a challenge. The games are also stiff as hell, so it's not like you're having that much fun against said easy computers. Basketball isn't as fluid as it could and should be, the passing controls are awkward, and the gimmicks only serve to frustrate you, since you know, game's easy anyway. Dodge ball is just as stiff, with similarly awkward passing controls.

Overall, this game is like Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics without the fun and without half its roster (Nintendo characters only). It also has fewer events, and those events aren't even deep, challenging, or fun. Pointless game is pointless. Don't bother with it.

Nintendo and Casual Gaming

Why has Nintendo forsaken gamers and sticks with making its trash ton of casual games?
That's the wrong question to ask. The question is...
Why did gamers forsaken Nintendo in exchange for "hardcore" games?

It was the real gamers that abandoned the Nintendo Game Cube, which was still putting out solid gamers for gamers of all kinds, but with XBox and PS2 being marketed as game systems for grown ups while Game Cube fell short as a "kids' system," gamers have no one to blame but themselves for the path Nintendo has decided to choose.

R.I.P. F-Zero. That franchise is too difficult for Nintendo's target demographic, and even if it returns, it probably won't be the same...

Future Projects, March Edition

The Future is Never Bleak When You're a Winner...

Seems like I have a barrage of projects about me...

  • I just started this awesome blog that the rest of the world doesn't seem to know about yet.
  • The SCW website is coming rather soon. (and I'm totally integrating this blog with it.)
  • It's getting warm, so that day that I get to go out and clear my mind to start the Marko Man series will come around.
  • I will probably release a Sonic 2 rom hack known as Sonic 2 Turbo, and depending on how life works, there may be room to make additional mods other than speed.
  • I still have a game that I want to work on from scratch, but I swear that won't ever get done cause I still don't have a cause for it.
  • And then of course, there's the god awful job search... only now, with a renewed vision of winning in my eyes.
I still gotta post my thoughts on the 3DS and Mario Sports Mix. I also wanna make a post about FaceBook's biggest flaws. All in due time.

Video(s) of the Day!

People don't realize how many of the people in the game are about as nice as a bully until a legend dies... RIP Nate Dogg.

Furthermore, deaths of celebrities don't seem to hit me as hard as they seem (or as i perceive them) to hit the rest of the world.

Regardless, I do have a secret passion for music, and this does give me a chance to tell you that I really hate the mainstream music of the day, especially hip hop. More on this in a future post.

Video of the Day: I Got Love by Nate Dogg

Runner Up: Well, I saw this video a few days ago, and it's still pretty awesome. Do unto others as you would want others to do unto you.

Also, I don't understand why this video is consistently being removed from the Internet... is this a lesson that someone does not want people to learn?

NOT the Video of the Day

Now right off the bat, you might call me biased for hating on the video simply because it's against Charlie Sheen and it's against the principles of Winning. Stop, don't even bother calling me biased because it's more than that. First off, the video itself is rather bad... you can hardly hear it. Now I've been noticing a smart trend of purposely lowering the volume of videos that are obviously gonna get copyright wrecked, but this is his video... learn to make your video louder when shit like this happens if you're gonna vlog.

He also said that he wants to see Charlie Sheen have sex with a "dirty hood rat." I'm black, and I wouldn't have sex with a dirty hood rat. What is wrong with this guy?

Guy obviously loses for saying that he beats off to Berta, Charlie's mom (I forgot her name), and the little boy... it doesn't matter if he was serious or if he was trying to be funny... he failed.

Most important, he, just like the majority of the world, doesn't get it. How do I know he doesn't get it? Well, Sheen said that he has tiger blood in him. Dude asked why not parrot blood or parakeet blood or turtle blood. lolwut. Didn't realize that if one was to make metaphors about winning that parrot blood would work better than tiger blood... I'm just saying.

He does, however, make a good point about one thing. Now, I don't watch the news (since it's filled with nothing with bad news... I think you can make the inference here), but the fact that Charlie Sheen is getting more coverage than the earthquake in Japan is pretty stupid. But hey, that should be expected of the news, now shouldn't it?

And as for Japan... damn man. 8.9 magnitude. And apparently they're still have after shocks with magnitudes of 4-6. It is definitely crazy over there... hopefully everything returns to normal soon, but that's pretty devastating.

Well, that concludes this post... if you're wondering why I wrote sooooo much on the NOT video of the day... well, it's easier to criticize than it is to praise, especially when that which deserves praise speaks for itself.

Coming soon: My thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS + Super Mario Sports Mix for the Wii.

Early Morning Winnings

Daily Winner Forecast: Cloudy with a chance of win.

So I had to wake up early this morning to score a quick win. After the win, I opened up a fortune cookie. It said:

"The longest journey is the journey inwards."

I'd believe it. I think that it's a long road to find the winner within yourself. Everyone (or at least I would like to think that everyone) has a winner inside of them that they need to search for. But for some, finding that winner is harder because of the defeatist attitude that they keep up.

Remember folks, Can't is the cancer of happen. Blink, then be cured. If blinking doesn't work, do that inward soul search.

FaceBook Flaw + 99 Problems

So as I was exploiting FaceBook's latest flaw (I dub thee "Instant Commenting," as all you have to do is press Enter and you can post a comment... huge flaw as you can make pretty much anything you want top news and you spam the hell out of someone's post), a friend put up on this interesting take of 99 Problems.

Have at it:

Furthermore, peep this: 

Amazing, isn't it? And yet somehow, FaceBook wins on a regular basis. What a strange case... I'll have to investigate that one day.

WWWWWinning: The Who What When Where and Why of Winning


Charlie Sheen: Apparently this guy wins everyday, and it seems like the majority of people just don't understand. He opened my eyes though...

Jacko Jack Jackson: One day early this year, guy decided, "They don't win, I win." Sounds like a winning mindset to me.

Me, of course, Mark Wins: I'm tired of acting like I'm not in the top tier of the human race. Time for me to win, baby.

"Convict": Doesn't win at all, actually. He shrinks, suffers concussions, staff infections, and torn ACLs, and overall just gets defeated. Who is this "Convict" guy? Surely, you'll find out soon enough.


Winning: the opposite of losing.
Winning: the total opposite of defeat.

If you lose, you can still be a winner in someone's book, but if you are defeated... well... that's it... back to the drawing board for you, buddy.

What you can expect from this blog: the unexpected.
From poetry and real life stories to opinions on anything, nothing is off limits.
Except defeat.


All. The fucking. Time. Even when I sleep, I win. What the fuck is a nightmare?

I'm winning over here, winning over there.
North to the South to the East to the West.
Mark Wins everywhere.


Short answer: Pfffff, why not?
Slightly longer answer: If I have the choice between being a winner and being defeated, is that even a choice?
