The Best Kirby Merchandise in 2021

Kirby Fighters 2 came out recently (see: 3+ months ago), and while it’s not my thing at all, it did remind me that there hasn’t been a memorable, mainline Kirby game since 2016’s Planet Robobot for the Nintendo 3DS. And that got me thinking about how much Kirby shit I bought in 2020 despite not enjoying a single entry in the series in almost 5 years. Hell, I even wrote an article for this very site about how getting a Kirby Banpresto box in the mail felt like ingesting serotonin. The obsession didn’t stop there either. For months, I mulled over whether I should buy the Kirby Art & Style Collection while it was on sale (it still is, for the record).

But, you see, Kirby isn’t really about the gameplay, or even the games. It’s about an adorable alien puffball from a place called Planet Popstar who’s just doing

Best Tips for Winning Tic Tac Toe

There are no infallible techniques to win tic tac toe. Although, there are some little tricks that will increase your chances of coming out victorious every time, or almost. Keep in mind that this puzzle game is above all a game of mathematics and probability!

But things get a little tricky when you are the second to play tic tac toe. 

Always Bet on the Center Box

If you are the first to play tic tac toe, you have every chance of winning unless you make a big mistake. Always put your first O or X at the center box. It is the most strategic box of the grid because it allows you … Read More

Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo Attacks Harry Styles Over ‘Gender Bending’ Fashion

Harry Styles fans have mocked Fox News host Raymond Arroyo after he criticized the singer’s “ridiculous” fashion choices.

Sitting in for regular host Laura Ingraham on The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday, Arroyo singled out the British pop star for not exclusively dressing in traditional menswear clothing.

The Fox News host made the remarks in a 21-second-long section he called “we want none of in 2021.”

“Harry Styles please stick to Armani menswear or at least pants. The gender bending wardrobe is not edgy or artistic,” he said. “You look ridiculous and you’re not breaking any new ground—David Bowie did this decades before you were even conceived. And the pearls were a really bad luck.”

A clip of the segment has been watched more than 800,000 times on Twitter after it was posted by one Harry Styles fan.

Styles has been praised as a flag-bearer for gender-fluid fashion since stepping away

Mayor Kirk Caldwell dedicates 2 new art pieces on display at Thomas Square for a year

Two new pieces of contemporary artwork by local artists on display at Thomas Square are just the first of a new program to feature Hawaii artists.

The two site-specific works — “Ho‘okumu — Moana (The Source — The Deep Ocean),” by Bernice Akamine, and “16 Cube Truss (About Building Systems),” by Sean Connelly — were commissioned by the city at a cost of about $35,000.

The new “Art at Thomas Square program” is intended to enhance the visitor experience at the park while engaging the public with thought-provoking artwork. The two new pieces will be on view along the South Beretania Street side of the square for one year and then rotate with other works by local artists.

“Art at Thomas Square is part of a vision we had for this historic park,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell in a news release last week, four days before he turned
