The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is reporting that Southington, Connecticut, will not be holding their gathering were they asked people to bring video games, DVD’s, and other formats of entertainment to be trashed and possibly destroy by inceneration.
In a press conference covered by gaming site Polygon, group members did not say whether those logistical details included the multitudes of gamers across the nation who were hatching plans to turn in bargain bin or unwanted games in exchange for $25 entertainment vouchers, which were to be donated by a member of the local Chamber of Commerce. Spokesman Dick Fortunato said that the actual destruction of games was rendered unnecessary because SouthingtonSOS had already accomplished its main goal:
We succeeded in our program. Our mission was to create strong awareness in Southington for parents and families and citizens and children. And we accomplished that. Our other objective was to promote discussion of violent video games and media with children and with the families at the home. And we’ve accomplished that in spades.
Whatever the reasons why I’m just glad it was cancelled. Whenever I hear about a burning of anything it stirs ill feelings in me personally and harkens back to eras that I don’t want to see revisited.
The Char Auris that was debuted last year as a custom vehicle may now come to market. Toyota is looking the bring the Char Auris hatchback to market this year and is doing an additional Gundam crossover by saying it is the product of Toyota teaming up with Zeonic Company, which is a fictional Gundam company from the series. I have to admit it looks kind of cool.
This weeks AMV Spotlight is on YouTuber “dragonchic721”. This is an older AMV and centers around Superman. This individual took clips from the series Justice League and edited them to the song “Go the Distance” performed by Michael Bolton. I know it is a slower song and it is from a Disney movie, but the AMV is well edited and the lyrics really fit the images as they are advancing through the video. The opening is my most favorite part with the instrumental and seeing the Justice League Tower and then Superman flying around the edge at the crescendo, very nicely done. I enjoyed the AMV and thought it should get some additional looks from people. You can look up the AMV on YouTube under “Justice League – Superman – Go the Distance” or check it out below:
