Personal Pokémon post

A week ago, I finally bought Pokémon Heart Gold. As I really wanted to start my adventure with a shiny starter, I softresetted. A lot. And without a success, so today, I told my girlfriend we can start playing, even without a shiny (She was bugging me the whole week that she wants to play and doesn't care about shinies but oh well, a week didn't hurt her :D). She pickud up a Chikorita, however, Chikorita didn't have a good nature, so I softresetted (again) for a good natured female Chikorita. Some 10 soft resets later, we ended up having a shiny Totodile! Now, the adventure can truly begin!

Tim Burton's Frankenweenie Teaser Trailer

Frankenweenie is remake of Burton's 1984 short film. It's inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, however instead of being about a doctor and his monster, it's about a small boy, Victor, who brings his deceased pet dog, Sparky, back to life. The movie is set for release on October 5, 2012 and you can watch the trailer below. (By the way, the animation seems to be done much in the same way as Burton's short film from 1982, Vincent. The main characters also seem to be pretty similar. You know what, just watch Vincent here and make your own opinion :D.)
