    Well it's Election Eve, and I just want to give my final thoughts before it's (hopefully) all over tomorrow evening.

    I have to say this has been one of the most remarkable and unpredictable elections I've lived through. Everything from Trump's rise, to the debates, the e-mail scandal, pussy-gate, and so on has lead to many twists and turns here. Personally, I think this is one election that won't be forgotten for a long time and one that is to be written for the history books and is also ripe to be analyzed by historians years down the road.

    I'm nervouscited about the results tomorrow and can only hope there's a positive path forward after this.

    Personally, I don't think this will have much of an impact for these reasons:

    -Many early votes have already been cast and most people have made up their minds already. If this will sway anyone, it'll be those who were thinking about voting third party or the last few remaining people who are sitting on the fence.The main problem for Clinton is lower enthusiasm for her voting block who may decide to stay home instead.
    -Most people are tired of the election in general and want it to be over. Let's not forget, there's currently the World Series going on along with both college and pro football happening this weekend which has great interest of the public.
    -Everyone already knows about Clinton's e-mail problem already. I must have heard of collective "groan!" when the subject came up yet again. Keep in mind Clinton has been under the microscope for years and managed to come out of it alive.
    With all that being said, I'm expecting one more shoe to drop regarding Trump sometime next week, because every time the spotlight turns on Clinton, he manages to either say something, do something, or something bad about him comes out that turns the spotlight right back on him. Remember, there's still 10 days left. This is not over.

    Edit: As if this whole thing couldn't get anymore crazier, the Justice Department warned Comey that his letter to congress wasn't consistent with the department's policy.

    The one thing that truly stood out from this debate, the one thing that will be the talk of this week's Sunday talk shows, the one thing that Trump has truly said that destroyed himself is that he may not accept the results of the election.

    Let's think about this for a moment: a major party's nominee has just said on a debate stage that he is willing to question this country's democratic process by stating he may not accept the election results. This has never happened before and it's a truly scary thing to hear.

    I've warmed up to the art style as well and personally like how Ash is much more expressive in this new series! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the premiere!

    Here's a running list of Republicans who are either with criticising Trump or calling on him to drop out. When your entire party is running away from you, you know you dun goofed.

    I've seen lots of shit go down throughout various elections in my lifetime, but this is one of the top ones that really takes the cake in my view.

    Thoughts on today's episode:
    Now that was a great episode! I certainly was not expecting to see some more exploration of the background of the Apple family. Big Mac had so many great moments and personally after Brotherhooves Social, this is the best episode featuring him to date! I also loved the interaction between the young Applejack and Big Mac!
    I also want to point out how simply awful Applejack is about lying. It's amazing how no one caught on it early given how over the top they were.
    One last thing I want to point out is how fantastic the characterization of Filthy Rich is. I'm glad they didn't give him the stereotypically rich guy kind of personality. On a side note, Spoiled Milk? What a name to have!

    Same! Personally, that one was my favorite of the shorts released so far. At least we're getting something while waiting for the hiatus to end.

    As if things couldn't get any worse for Trump, The New ,York Attorney General ordered the Trump foundation to stop fundraising in the state. October only just started and already shit has hit the fan!

    Boy that was some debate between Trump and Clinton. In my opinion, Trump was doing fine for the first 30 minutes, and then it went downhill from there. I think his "Being Smart" in regards to not paying taxes and "That's businesses" in regards to people losing jobs comments is going to cost him in the polls and it's going to be interesting to see how the polls shift post-debate considering they were tightening beforehand.

    I just finished watching that hour long 2 parter and I have to agree, it was fantastic and there's been some good stuff coming out of this anime lately sans what happened in the league finals. Personally, I think this has been the best the Pokemon anime has been in a long time and I really hope it continues this way even if I dislike the visuals of the Sun and Moon arc.

    My Dad called me moments ago about the news and I'm really bummed about it. I loved him in Willy Wonka as it's one of my favorite movies. I'm going watch it when I get home tonight in tribute. RIP, Gene Wilder.

    What. A. Day!
    i can't even begin to describe he incredible SoS was! You guys truly have outdone yourselves and it was so great see to everyone there again! Getting the opportunity to play Sonic Mania was a real treat and from what I've played of it, I'm really looking forward to it now and can't wait to get the full game when it comes out!
     Getting to meet both Mr. Naka and Iizuka was the highlight of my day (I'm still laughing at how Mr. Naka wrote the title of "Pope" in his autograph) and I also got the chance to meet both Mike Pollock and Crush 40 as well. Speaking of Crush 40, they gave an amazing concert towards the end of SoS! 
    Thank you so much to all the crew wh out this together! I'm glad to have been able t attend and if there's another SoS in the future, I'll be sure to come back again!

    I thInk Snowden's reaction sums it up perfectly. Honestly, I'm not surprised the FBI Dieector made it this call. It shows exactly how biased the justice system is towards the rich and famous.

    We now have our first look at the new Samurai Jack!
    Also a little more info from this tweet which translates to
    "10 episodes conceived as a five-hour film. More dark. More adult. It will close the story."
    With a preview image like that, it looks we're definitely in for a more dark series than the original!
