My Yu-Gi-Oh! August/September 2022 banlist predictions

Well, here we are again in banlist season. It’s certainly been a while since I’ve done one of these hasn’t it? Last time I talked about Yu-Gi-Oh! on here was during Pank-Kids Adventurer format – a format which I’m pretty sure is now considered to be one of the worst of all time. Yeah, I certainly don’t miss Destiny Hero – Destroyer Pheonix Enforcer being in every deck, that’s for sure. I’m happy to say...

Maya Deren - Meshes of the Afternoon painting

Meshes of the Afternoon – a very serious analysis

So here’s the second part of my Maya Deren film analyses that I wrote back in college. I remember this one being significantly more of a pain in the ass to write than the one for At Land, going through countless rewrites before I was at-all satisfied with it.

At Land – A very serious analysis

Here’s a little story for ya: back in 2017, I briefly became fascinated with the works of American experimental filmmaker Maya Deren.

I can’t remember what...

Yu-Gi-Oh! sucks right now

It’s around this time where I would be doing my Yu-Gi-Oh! banlist predictions, as the Forbidden/Limited is due to be updated “a few months from now”. However, the current format is so apocalyptically shit that I’ve decided a new approach is required. Instead, I’m going to perform a dissection on this Frankenstein’s monster that is the Yu-Gi-Oh! 2022 format. Perhaps I’ll even conduct a frontal lobotomy on Burst Of Destiny and The Grand Creators, so...

The Yu-Gi-Oh! February banlist aftermath

The banlist is finally here and I speak on behalf of everyone when I say “thank fuck for that!” When I did my predictions back in December, I really underestimated how long this format would actually go on for. The October banlist feels like a lifetime ago, so I think at this point we’re all sick of being Protos-locked for the millionth time in a row. Luckily this time around, a lot of very significant...
