New Years Pyro Mizzet

Reviving the NerdyLoft YouTube channel in 2020, hoping to put out more videos on a regular basis. Starting off with at least 1 per week and see where it goes. Would be awesome to spend more time on the channel and post a few videos a week. With a full-time job it will be difficult, but really want to commit to it in 2020. Starting off with some budget pyro mizzet on restricted standard event in MTG arena. Follow NerdyLoft on Mixer – Check out the website (being revamped) –

New YouTube Channel Trailer!

Hi All, to get a better idea of the content to expect on my YouTube channel I’ve put together a new trailer which showcases some of my content. While I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to post new videos on a regular basis, I am trying to set some time aside a few times each month to produce new videos and hopefully grow from there.

Thanks to all of my existing subscribers on the channel for your comments and support and hope to speak to more of you again soon!

I Am Legend Re-Watch – Multiple Endings

iamlegendI Am Legend is an interesting film (reminds me a lot of the game ‘The last of us’), and follows the main character Robert Neville (Will Smith) a survivor in New York City after a virus outbreak with symptoms similar to ‘vampirism’. Much of the story is devoted to Neville’s struggles to understand the plague that has infected everyone around him, and the film details the progress of his discoveries.

I originally saw this film back in 2007 when it released but recently watched it again on Netflix and felt that the ending is a bit of a disappointment. ***Spoiler*** He blows himself up to allow Anna/Ethan to escape his house with the “cure” to the disease. It would have been great to see Robert go with Anna/Ethan to the colony and see how the cure is utilized. This is “almost” explored in the alternate ending to the film but unfortunately this falls short also but the alternate ending is most definitely superior to the the original.

Searching around on YouTube I was able to find the alternate ending where Neville doesn’t sacrifice himself. Whilst they hide in his lab the infected raid it and the alpha male makes the shape of a butterfly on the lab glass. Neville realises that he is referring to the female Neville has captured (with her butterfly tattoo) he takes her out to the alpha male and takes the cure out of the females veins. They then show signs of love and compassion for one another, leaving Neville realising that, infact, the infected are not mindless killing machines but have developed a community of their own and have still got traces of their humanity.The film ends with Neville, Anna and Ethan driving off to find the colony with Anna recording a message over the radio for other survivors.

I think is pretty cool the film has multiple endings but would have a great if this alternate ending was actually part of the original film. There has been some discussion online about rumors of a sequel, let’s hope if we do see a second film it explores the survivor colony’s a bit more and how Neville’s cure was used.

Overall a great film.

DC Comics Batman Hush TPB (2002-2003) Jeph Loeb|Jim Lee|Scott Williams

2013-05-16 20.49.33A few weeks ago I picked up the “Batman Hush” trade paper back which collects the Hush comic book story arc from the Batman monthly series in 2002-2003. It is written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Jim Lee. Jim Lee is no doubt one of my favourite comic book artists of all time and must be many people’s favourites. He is a master and really a legend in the industry. The book is also inked by Scott Williams and additional colouring by Alex Sinclair. If there was ever a dream team assembled to create one amazing comic book it is these guys.

The story depicts a mysterious stalker called Hush, who seems intent on sabotaging Batman from afar, and it includes a large number of guest appearances by Batman villains. It also emphasizes the romantic feelings between Batman and Catwoman.

I wanted to share a few of my favourite parts of the book with you:
