Animegraphy 2013 – This Is Why I Love Anime

This is why I love anime, it brings across so many emotions you are bound to connect with one, and it gets you going, your blood pumping, your adrenaline rushing, and you immerse yourself in it, and its never enough. This year I managed to catch up with a lot of Anime but to the end of 2013 I fell back again, now I’m back at it again and this Youtube video says a lot.

TMNT – 2014 – Trailer

Another TMNT Movie! I’m honestly happy that they keep bringing back the best of the 80s & 90s to the theater, and this TMNT looks o be bad ass. The best part of the movie is that it’s rebooted by Michael Bay so you know its going to be an action packed movie, but to my surprise Megan Fox is playing April O’Neil even though she had a fall out with Michael Bay from Transformers. But it looks really cool and TMNT guys look amazing, more bad ass then ever before. The movie will debut on August 2014 and I will be watching it.

DevinSuperTramp – Dubai in 4K

It looks like that Devin caught someone’s eye in Dubai and they brought Team SuperTramp to Dubai, and now Devin and his team are bringing it to you in 4K Resolution. Not the usual action packed DevinSuperTramp video but still a very cool video!

Zain 4G / LTE Rant

ZainLTE2

It seems I wasn’t the only one noticing that as of the last few months my Zain LTE Router is no where near what it used to be.

People may say that 4G does it for them, its good for quick browsing and going through normal internet usage, but not heavy duty lifting, not major downloading or gaming what so ever.

Below is the full comment of Tenthfire that really broke down all the issues I was facing as well as details that I honestly didn’t delve into.

I am very disappointed with Zain LTE this year with their approach on their internet. If you check the highway their advertisement was “extremely fast speed and good for gaming” or some similar words.

This year Zain LTE decided to buy cheaper routers compared to last year. These new routers are extremely worse than because that their range is 2/4 compared to the one 1 year ago. The router malfunctions more and the chip is much worse than before. I have to say that 0 tests were made on the router.

I will try not to go into details, but if you play League of Legends, Dota, WOW, Diablo, etc do not get this router as it is extremely unstable.
Last year being one of the first people to have Zain LTE in the country with the modem + 80GB limit (now increased to 300G in 2014) I will tell you my experience.
Usually my ping in gaming is 180-1000. Mostly 180-400 which is extremely unplayable and you get frustrated.

I managed to figure an IP that had a more stable ping than others and managed to configure my router with minimum traffic and to get IP, getting 130-140 ping.
On 2014 they changed router and chip and also programmed their servers in an extremely poor way where it rejected people with old routers / chips. This caused a massive amount of disconnection and customer service have no way of helping you. The people on customer service have no idea how internet work or what the basics of latency are.

Anyways on 2014 I got a new contract hoping that their internet will get better. They increased the limit from 80GB–> 300GB which is amazing.
Zain LTE, however, after a few months starting in March decided to cancel 3G service , so now all cell phones are forced to get 4G LTE.
There is an increased pressure on 4G LTE and the server is extremely over used. The speed went around 3GB / slower per 4 months.
I am sad to say that now the speed of Zain LTE at 3.14.2014 with tests is 5-12 GB/ second on download and less than 10GB in upload from the normal standard which was 40GB+.
IF you buy a normal DSL your ping / internet will be more stable and faster.
I have done some tests on certain IP : 149.147.19.119 37.37.162.104 37.36.132.137 31.203.192.129 37.203.192.129 37.39.173.140 188.236.211.62 188.236.37.152
and many more.

I also made a list of the problems Zain 4G LTE service is having from 2014 (especially Feb and March):
1. Assigning two people the same “IP ” (usually when several computers connect to a router they are given different “IP”).
This is bad, because if that person with the same “IP” downloads something your speed will get slower and if you’re gaming you will lag.
2. Disables Youtube Comments and enables Safety Mode.
This is an extremely annoying problem only seem from their filter / internet problem. Youtube loads extremely slow as well and a lot of problems.
3. Unable to browser specific websites from an “error” which can be solved by turning off your router for 30 seconds – 2 minutes.
This gets annoying when I have to close my router to access sites like XXX website because the router is “stuck” and it happens a lot. Sometimes it gets me an error while going on google. This is only with their service. I have tried normal DSL and other internet services which are much better.
4. As I said before their router radius is extremely low and signal level affects ping.
Radius is usually 0.5 floorX 0.80 floor (LXW) meaning it is worse than any other types.
5. Router shutdowns if you download 3 things simultaneously.
Lets say I download 3 from Itunes 3GB each I can crush my router and their server. It will build up some level of “clog” on that IP address that it will be slow. You will need to change your IP address.

Their simple network structure is sad and if I was to rate it from 1-10 I would give it 0.
I do not recommend this internet for any person who wants a stable network or for gaming. I do not recommend 4G LTE from any company as it is extremely unstable and fails to bring minimum international standards. Calling this network 4G LTE is a simple joke.
This is only 1/5 of the server problems I see. If I was to include more problems on their server and networks it would be extremely cruel.

How they can solve most problems:
1-Fix network stability ( I believe a multi-million dollar company can figure out how to do this).
2-Do not overload yourself with people when your network is extremely weak.
3-Offer certain configuration for gamers.
4-Fix disconnection problems.
5-Find a better engineer for your routers and their components.
6-Do more testing on your routers before buying them from China.

Street Fighter – Gouken – Mixed Media Statue

Street-Fighter-Gouken-Strong-Fist-Edition-Statue

Now this is just one of the coolest statues that I have seen from Mixed Media Statues, and if you are a fan of Street Fighter then you will know who this is. Gouken the master and mentor of Ryu & Ken and the older brother of Akuma. To me he is just a bad ass in Street Fighter and I always enjoy when they made an animated show, but always wanted more of him in it. It seems I’m not the only fan of Gouken, it seems the team from PopCultureShock love him too that they made this 16.5 inch Polystone model of him, and I love the way he looks, of course I preordered it as I want him part of the collection. I like the quality of work done by PopCultureShock, I have a few of their pieces but no where to display it.

Ken and Ryu’s martial art Master is finally here ! We are proud to present Street Fighter’s sensei supreme as a 1:4 scale polystone mixed media masterpiece. Like his Street Fighter brethren, this statue features amazing hi-fi sculpting, capturing every muscle, vein and fold of clothing as if he stepped right from the game itself. This collectible features a certificate of authenticity.

“Concentrate not on destroying your foe, but on attaining your own victory.” Gouken is the marital arts Master who trained Ryu and Ken, as well as his elder brother and former training partner, Akuma.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Anchorman21

With the 70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.

Anchorman22

If you even like Will Ferrel you will love this movie, from beginning to end I couldn’t stop laughing, I can never get enough of Will Ferrel movies but this one had the perfect cast to support him and make this one hell of a movie. Ron Burgendy shined in Anchorman 2, I thought Anchorman was hilarious that it couldn’t be funnier, but they topped it off with this one. I loved the character played by Steve Carrel, he perfected it, I could feel a bit of Michael Scott from the Office coming through with him in that suit. The best part is the insanely ridiculous battle scene at the end, just the amount of famous people who were in it was enough, you could tell that people joined in because they were enjoying themselves making this movie, if you haven’t seen it then watch it.

RYNO Motors – Fun With One Wheel

Ryno1

Ryno2

This reminds me of the Segway for some reason, when it came out everyone went crazy that it was revolutionary, self balancing made it very cool and they made other versions of offroading and slightly more aggressive. Now this is another self balancing machine but this time around on one tire only so you lean forward and back to move but leaning sideways too will be a different feel.

The specifications aren’t that compelling for me it only goes up to 10 mph and gets about 10 miles per charge, when I was expecting it to be more thrilling based on the way that it looks. Its more like a personal transportation machine around a city or local area, its not meant for highways or high speed areas. For $5500 this is a revolutionary machine, but a novelty item that you must really want to justify the price. I am really curious to try this out, I wouldn’t buy it but I wouldn’t mind renting it to tour a place abroad.

Popcorn Time – Basically Netflix For Free

PopcornTime

Popcorn time has the same feel to it as Netflix and works relatively smoothly, streaming most of the movies you would like to see. But unlike Netflix it runs on the BitTorrent network so its pulling movies from unknown sources with no traceback to you. Popcorn Time has beta builds which run on Windows, Mac, & Linux, and the best part is that it very user friendly & has an intuitive user interface.

The service was killed off a little while back even though technically they didn’t store any movies, but as it was an open source program someone else picked up the mantle and brought Popcorn Time back to life.

“The YTS team will now be picking up the Popcorn Time project and continuing on like previously,” a developer told TorrentFreak. “We are in a better position copyright wise as for us, because it’s build on our API. It’s as if we have built another interface to our website.” Whether or not this new version of Popcorn Time will last longer than the original remains to be seen, but the team sounds confident it can keep things running. “It’s our vision at YTS that we see through projects like these and that just because they create a little stir in the public, it doesn’t mean they are shut down,” a YTS dev said.

The Raid 2 – Trailer – Action Redifined!

The First Movie I loved, this one just seems liked they took action movies to another level, you can’t resist the tempo of the action, can’t wait to see this one too.

I Frankenstein

IFrankenstein1

Frankenstein’s creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.

IFrankenstein2

I was extremely looking forward to this, I loved the original Underworld, it was seriously bad ass and this looked to be like one hell of a movie, and I am fan of Erin Eckhart he was in a few movies that I really liked The Dark Knight, Olympus Has Fallen, Battle Los Angeles, Thank You for Smoking. This had an interesting start and things were developing then the bad guy of the movie turned out to be the bad guy from Underworld, the story took twists and turns where it didn’t make sense what so ever. It was an interesting fantasy type movie, and they were trying to bring the Frankenstein story to this age, but it just didn’t make sense. Erin Eckhart is a good actor but he needs help choosing scripts, he has had a few hits and misses, this was a miss for sure. It got a one out of five because it has Eric Eckhart and the Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker from Chuck).
