Isaiah 49:1 (NIV and NKJV)

NIV – The Servant of the Lord

Listen to me, you islands;
    hear this, you distant nations:
Before I was born the Lord called me;
    from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.

NKJV – The Servant, the Light to the Gentiles

“Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
And take heed, you peoples from afar!
The Lord has called Me from the womb;
From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.

See the source image

Update: 6/30

In a tweet made by IGN, game developers Toys For Bob confirmed that the new Crash 4 game will not have micro-transactions. The pre-order dlc skins will be included in all digital version of the game.

Remember the big game announcement of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time? Well I got some interesting news that will either make you want to spend early for fall or might discourage you. According to IGN, Crash Bandicoot 4 is going to have a total of 100+ levels based on an email from GameStop. If you thought the other Crash games was short in levels, this game is going to keep you entertained until Christmas or early 2021. It also appears in the news that this game might have in-game purchases based at the Microsoft store. It’s unknown what kind of in-game content this game will have, but this is not the first time Crash has DLC. In the N.Sane trilogy, players can download the scrapped levels for Crash 1 and Crash Warped. In Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, players can buy Wumpa coins and buy cosmetics like karts and skins.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is going to be released for PS4 and Xbox One on October 2nd, 2020.

However, despite the conflicts of the world, we also shouldn’t let these topics prevent us from socializing our peers. This is can be frustrating to deal with especially if your favorite celebrities and voice actors expresses their beliefs to their fans. Unfortunately, this voice actor decided that focusing on political opinions was more important than a fan and their kindness.

When it was informed that Mr. Sarcasm has created a fan made mug featuring all the characters of Drummond’s characters, he was ecstatic to share his work to Drummond and wanted to give it to him. Drummond was very happy to see it posted online; however, things turned from happiness to heartbreaking when Drummond decided to browse at Mr. Sarcasm’s Twitter page. Drummond stated he will not accept this fan made coffee mug gift because of the inappropriate tweets found in Mr. Sarcasm’s tweets.

Drummond uses three hashtag tweets telling this fan about Black Lives Matter, believe in women and trying to get President Trump out of office. According to Bounding into Comics, Drummond believes that Mr. Sarcasm beliefs are diffrent than his opinions and he deems them as inappropriate. It is also believed that since Mr. Sarcasm supports voice Vic Mignogna, former Funimation voice actor who voiced Broly.
