The Rise of Fall

Alternative Title: The Fall of Summer
(I’ll probably use that next year)

Talk about oxymorons!

I spent half an hour searching for two good pictures related to Fall. It’s interesting, people who draw people and faces well generally don’t care about the background, and people who draw backgrounds well generally aren’t that good at drawing faces.

I guess this is just an extension of my back to school post, so let’s extend from that post regarding strings.

I DIDN’T GET COOKING

I’M STUCK IN STRINGS

now twenty years of my life will be spent learning to string

TWENTY YEARS

;_;

In Chinese school, I didn’t notice this at all before, but the people in my class are more weeaboo than I. They talk not only about random anime and manga that everybody else seems to know about, but freely discuss niche voice actors and actresses, visual novels, and light novels that I haven’t even /heard/ of before. Now, I fancy myself as a person who’s spent a good year and a half watching anime and hearing about a lot of different anime, but I have not heard of any one of the titles they’re talking about, and apparently all of them have watched all of them. Seriously, I watch like an episode of anime a day (most days, I don’t even watch anime…), and these people, they have to have watched like two hours of anime a day or something. Where do they find the time…

;_;

I guess this is also an extension of my two year anniversary post, so let’s extend from that post regarding unique posts.

HAHAHAHAHA YEAH RIGHT

Did I say I was going to write non-episodic posts?

HAHAHA EPISODIC POSTS TAKE THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME

EXPECT ME TO BLOG FIVE ANIME SERIES AND TWO MANGA SERIES THIS SEASON

Because that’s all I have time for…

;_;

I guess this is also an extension to last year’s summer goals post, so let’s extend from that post regarding goals.

I DID NOTHING THIS SUMMER.

Apart from learning Dvorak, I literally did nothing at all. Nothing besides blog and watch anime and shit and eat because it’s hard to shit without eating. I’ll definitely follow less anime this season – it doesn’t look that good, either…

In completely unrelated news, I frequently type whay on twitter, and want you guys to know whay is.

It’s pretty obvious that it’s why + what, but there are many, many uses for the word whay, which I shall proceed to list in list form (please list-en):

1. What is (this, that, it, there, etc.): Person A: ‘Look at this!’ Person B: ‘Whay!’ (What is it!) / Person A: ‘Hey, look over there!’ Person B: ‘Whay?’ (What is there?)
2. Why is (this, that, it, etc.): Person A: ‘A particle is travelling faster than light!’ Person B: ‘Whay!’ (Why is it!) / Person A: ‘Look, it’s a baseball glove!’ Person B: ‘Whay there?’ (Why is it there?)
3. What is (this/that) and why is (this/that) happening: Person A: ‘You got a F on your test!’ Person B: ‘Whay!’ (What did I get and why did I get it!) ? Person A: ‘It just crashed!’ Person B: ‘Whay?’ (What is it, and why did it crash?)
4. What is (this, that, it) and how: Person A: ‘That saucer’s hovering above the air!’ Person B: ‘Whay is it hovering!’ (What is it, and how is it hovering!) Person A: ‘This machine can make hamburgers twice as fast as your mom.’ Person B: ‘Whay does it do it?’ (What is it, and how does it do it?)
5. A misspelling of what: Person A: ‘You’re a donkey.’ Person B: ‘Whay? What* sorry my finger slipped on the t/y key’

In case you haven’t noticed, the pictures in this post are from the moon festival (or mid-Autumn festival if you want to be an Englishman). I don’t know if that night was when the moon seems largest, but the moon was pretty large and I was pretty an observer on Earth. That said, I’m not actually pretty, because I’m just cool, not pretty cool.

In conclusion, I’ll conclude this post with a sentence and a quote. First, the sentence: apparently buses in Vancouver now have an extra automated voice that says ‘Please give the courtesy seats to those who need it.’ which is pretty scary because the automated voice sounds like a robot, even though you could simply record somebody saying that sentence naturally and then play it on the bus.

Finally, the quote: ‘

P.S. 777 words, except the word count is different among different word counters :|

  1. Ordinarily, this comment would illustrate another important use of “What”, oops, typo, I mean “Whay”, but I am too tired to comprehend the semantics of the damn thing, In other news, despite being busy with school, you still write more posts than me, and despite being cool, you aren’t a super, cool, good looking, man from distant planet like me. oh well, also, fall seems to have a pretty good line up, it shall be fun.

    P.S:- Your solution to the Chinese School Problem: “I don’t watch those anime, they are too mainstream”, “Oh, then what do you watch?”, “I’d tell you, but you probably haven’t heard of them”. Then walk out, calculator in hand, and Chinese hair partition on head.

  2. :( The thing is since I basically know all (i.e. the titles of 15% of) mainstream anime, all the anime they’re talking about is non-mainstream.

    Talk about Chinese hipsters.
