Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new topic! Every Other Saturday, I will be searching for some random tropes, and describing them in a spoiler-free way. In case you didn’t know, a trope can be defined as an expression or overused cliche found in movies and other media. TV Tropes.org categorizes thousands of these expressions and cliches throughout the world of media. This ranges from certain character quirks, to the series as a whole. I find it to be quite enjoyable, and I hope you guys will too. Now, let’s begin!
Depraved Kids’ Show Host: This trope deals with the stereotypical “Kiddie Show” host. They always appear to be happy, and love making little kids smile. Unfortunately, this is all a disguise, and backstage is where they let their true colors shine. They can be addicted to drugs, have lecherous behavior, be sex offenders, swear enough to make sailors transform into prudes, and makes everybody’s life around him a “living hell”. This trope is frequently found in The Simpsons with Krusty the Clown. Krusty can be found backstage yelling at everyone, and seems to be addicted to everything. It can also be found with Pierre from Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job. Pierre loves to dance with kids, and seems to be fascinated with the audience’s dads.
Technology Porn: This trope is used in almost every Science Fiction film ever created. The trope occurs whenever a sequence in media goes into great depth showing the inner workings of gadgets and other mechanical tools. This trope always appears in the Iron Man films when Tony Stark “suits up”. It also can be found in numerous parts of 2001: A Space Odyssey. One of my favorite examples of this trope is the use of it in Blade Runner.
Warning! This Will Make You Hungry!! Food Porn: This trope is pretty self-explanitory, but can be divided into two definitions. The first is food that’s usually used to symbolize something suggestive. The second is food that’s portrayed in such a manner that the audience salivates and experiences lust as if they were watching porn. I adore this trope, and I always am eager to see what people think of next. One of my favorite examples of this trope is in the film, Chef.Chef’s use of food is so important in the movie, that it actually becomes a main plot point. Then, we get to its use in Anime, and I can’t think of a better example than Shokugeki No Soma (Food Wars). This Anime was created by a Hentai artist, and the use of food in the series applies to both definitions. People literally have “Foodgasms” so intense that their clothes will occasionally rip off! The food in this show is so jaw-dropping, that even the most simple dishes, like scrambled eggs look like it should be framed in the Louvre! As an added bonus, Japanese chef Yuki Morisaki, adds real recipes from the series that you can replicate in each Manga volume!
Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crazy cards. Now, let’s duel!
An Unfortunate Report Type: Trap/Normal Appearance: A tattered series of graphs and designs surrounded by three candles. Effect: Your opponent conducts their next Battle Phase twice.
This card is next to useless, and it is a huge detriment to whoever plays it. The only way I can see this card being used is to make your opponent hurt themselves in the battle.
Balloon Lizard Type: Reptile/Effect 4 Stars Attribute: Earth ATK/500 DEF/1900 Appearance: A large, green, lizard with a huge inflated stomach. Effect: Put 1 counter on this card during each of your Standby Phases. When this card is destroyed, inflict damage to the controller of the card that destroyed it equal to the number of counters X 400.
This ultra-bizarre card has a very good effect. For starters, it has very high defense, and if you can keep it on the field for long enough it can easily win you the duel. Unfortunately, due to a bunch of counters, this card won’t see a lot of play.
Danny Don’t You Know by Ninja Sex Party From the album “Cool Patrol” (to be released on August 17th, 2018) Genres: Comedy rock, Electronic, Synthpop.
Ninja Sex Party are a comedic music duo consisting of Game Grump, Danny “Sexbang” Avidan and Theoretic Physicist, Brian Wecht. They are known for creating some of the best and most catchy comedic music on the internet. The music video for this song features Finn Wolfhard, the voice of Mike Wheeler from Stranger Things. It also is probably my favorite NSP song with “6969” coming in second. The song is an epic retelling of Dan’s life story. It starts with him as a child, and gradually progresses to adulthood. The song is filled with charm, and the ending will give you chills! I highly recommend this piece to absolutely everyone, and I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.
