Devil May Cry Bitter Tears Of Fucking Disappointment

Published on Sep 17th, 2010 by

New Devil May Cry announced. Well, just DmC at the moment. Ninja Theory. Something something, emo Dante. I’m not going to explain this in detail because Lauren has already done so.¬†If you’re somehow out of the loop, and want to get an idea of just what the hell I’m talking about, go read her post. I am going to embed the same video a little way down though, as I’ll be referring to it.

Anyway, I was linked to over there as having a theory on this new DmC game, so I thought ‘why not share that theory on this blog’. So I’m going to. It’s not a particularly in-depth theory, nor is it one I’m suggesting is likely correct (we just don’t know at this stage, part of me is hoping it’s a total series reboot, I see no harm in this), but it’s a possibility. The hints are there. Maybe.

This blog is my attempt at some kind of mini-rebellion, and I kind of like it. Posting random shit is quite cathartic. I can understand the appeal. I’ve kept blogs before, of course, even as far back as when Livejournal was still socially acceptable, but I’m at least making an effort to be coherent this time round.

Of course, I’m not saying anything¬†contentious or inflammatory, even if sometimes I’d like to. I’ve never been a very confrontational person. It’s not that I don’t have conviction about things, it’s just that for the most part airing one’s disillusionment on the internet is like screaming at a rock concert; nobody really cares because they’re screaming too. Nothing shocks people any more, and it’s very hard to make a stand against anything because of this. Also; perceptions are very hard to shatter, no matter how much you might attempt to break them, and you’ll still be labeled as X or Y because people want you to be X or Y, because of who you work for or who your friends are or what you look like or who you like to fuck. Sometimes people want to be Z, or 3, or purple but they can’t because nobody’s really interested, and maybe the only available options are X or Y anyway.

I have another blog too, but we don’t talk about that

Pretty Famous In Michigan is dead. The blog served me well, to an extent, by which I mean barely at all. This was, of course, my fault for rarely updating it but right now I feel that’s besides the point. It was time for a change; something more sedate, more professional, a nice portfolio piece that summarised who I am and what I’m about. Pretty Famous In Michigan started life as part of the ‘One A Day’ network, originally set up by Andy Kelly in which a bunch of bloggers would post one entry a day, every day for 365 days. As you can see from PFIM, I lasted about a week before I started breaking the rules (accidentally, I might add, I was never aware of these rules) and eventually stopped altogether. Sure, I updated sporadically after that, but it was mostly nonsense and a fresh start was needed. So here we are.
