Photos: Motorcycles at Spartanburg Spring Fling

 They had a showing of motorcycles at the Spring Fling festival we went to. We happened to run into my cousin and her family while looking at them. Her son was very upset that they missed the car show which was apparently the day before. Apparently motorcycles aren't "cool enough" or something.

Fact of the Day; Chinese Cuju Soccer

While soccer would be later "invented", Cuju was a extremely similar game invented during the Han Dynasty of China. The word Cuju translates to "kick ball" in modern English.

Things I Like: Mr. Geary (Yoshi's Crafted World)

 One of the last bosses of the game, Mr. Geary is created when Kamek sees Yoshi in the big factory place.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018 Film) Review

 One of my favorite films of the early days of this decade was Wreck-It Ralph. Animated films take a long time to make a sequel, mainly because they want to make sure it doesn't flop before they make all the expensive animation again, and the studio usually wants to do a different project first. Ralph's 2nd movie shouldn't have taken about six years to come out, and for context some kid that watched it before he was a teenager, would have graduated high-school before the sequel came out. Myself, I have forgotten a decent bit of the plot of the original movie, though I still remember the gist of it and the characters.

At Spartanburg's Spring Fling festival, they had a magician guy doing tricks. They were pretty simple tricks though, and not impressive enough to wait too long in the hot sun for. I'll get sunburnt for David Copperfield.
