I’m heading off to Seattle again. Expect pictures when I return. Until then, az will run the show!! Have fun. Here’s a picture of my face, sighing because I’m sick. Of you.
Have some much needed backstory, in one paragraph.
Back-click for story»
The problem with serializing monthly is that you have to do so many recap-ing statements, which don’t actually help recap because I don’t know what’s happening at all.
So, here’s a recap. Is this what’s happening?
Nicolas and Worrick are hired by Daniel Monroe to fight against the Corsica family, when SUDDENLY, DOUG appears. Doug works for the PAUL KLEE club, a club that focuses on all glee clubs, and Nicolas fights against him. Meanwhile, a suspicious black-haired person called Ginger is being suspicious, black-haired, and not red-haired in the background…
Gangsta used to be cool and fresh, but somehow, after introducing all of these conflicting families and mercenary guilds, it just seems like a lame knock-off of Black Lagoon or maybe even Hitman Reborn. There’s nothing making Gangsta better than any of those series.
The whole backstory of the MYSTERIOUS TEENAGER (who is obviously Nicolas) seems rather cliché, but I hope Gangsta will transform that into something that’s, uh, good. NO THESAURUS HOW HAVE YOU FAILED ME YOU ARE A DINOSAUR
tl;dr: I said I was going off to vacation two posts ago but I was lying. NOW I’m going off to vacation. There’ll be regularly scheduled posts while I’m gone, though. Just don’t expect them to be good. I don’t think anybody’s ever expected my posts to be good. ┐(‘～`；)┌
So, December 28th is Editorial Day.
…I’m being pulled out to vacation for a while before school starts, so there won’t be any posts for a while.
There’s my editorial. I hope flomu_ likes it :>
P.S. houraiguy will cover for me
P.P.S. Here’s the last Ben-To rapview.
And now I’m gone for three weeks.
Don’t read on»
I have a project due on Tuesday that I haven’t started.
It was assigned before Winter Break.
=3= wish me luck?
Questions and Answers»
Alternative title: America is boring as hell.
Yep, I’m back from my vacation.
Of the time of writing this post, there is about, oh, I don’t know, ONE DAY of 2010 left. I don’t know if many of you know, but Ichigos is having another composition contest. If you’ll remember (you won’t, there was nobody reading then), one of my earliest compositions was prompted by an Ichigos contest (which, I subsequently received 2nd place – also known as last, because only two people entered).
Unfortunately, there are far more competitors this time, and the monetary prizes are no small talk either. And I have one day to submit something.
One day. That’s basically five hours. Why am I still writing this post? I don’t know, I’ll do nothing but compose tomorrow. Why did I read that epic mahjong manga? Which, if I may mention, is awesome? When JAPANESE ROBOTS fight HITLER in MAHJONG on the MOON, I think it’s PRETTY AWESOME. GEORGE BUSH’s power level is OVER EIGHT THOUSAND too (a normal person’s power level is seven, not seven thousand). Of course, that’s nothing to HITLER’s power level of THIRTY TWO THOUSAND.
In other real-world news, Comiket 79 has hit once again, obvious from the flood of Comiket music, PVs, and more hitting the internet (and the many cries of anguished line-waiters). It’s ending tomorrow, too.
Heh, you’d expect me to write some New Year’s post soon, so I won’t keep this any longer. I’m too lazy to even slap any pictures on here. On that note, I’ll delay (once more, once more) the Winter anime preview to next year. Sigh, vacation just seems to pass so quickly (or I wasted half of it in America doing NOTHING AT ALL).
Anyways, back to the title of this post: Twilight.
It does not suck.
What? You didn’t see that?
TWILIGHT DOES NOT SUCK.
As far as I can tell, there is no blatant exhibition of horrible, unpaced writing; no ill-developed main character; no drastically unrealistic plot. Twilight is, for a book, pretty good – you can read it without stopping, given the time necessary. The writing is many times better than even the grammar of many people who claim to have read it; indeed, this is not a book written by a teenager. It’s written by an adult, a very capable adult, whose intelligence vastly surpasses that of many individuals in society.
Book-wise, it’s decent. No – it’s good.
Of course, with the exception of how “Edward’s perfect eyes looked at me from his perfect face as perfect mucus dripped out of his perfect nose.”
Novel-wise, it’s a FUCKING MASTERPIECE. This Stephanie Meyer person is SO SMART THAT ALBERT EINSTEIN WOULD LOOK AT HER AND SHIT BRICKS.
Firstly, let’s look at Bella’s character.
Huh? Character? Where’s that? Bella’s well-developed, sure; but only after the plot kicks in. Before that, EVERYTHING about her can be applied to like EVERYBODY in the world – or at least everybody’s conceptions of themselves. Sure, basically nobody’s smart, but most stupid people think they’re smart, and thus can step into Bella’s shoes.
– Obvious points to her gender are not defined (a.k.a. she’s probably not a girl)
– Tries to fit in at school, but doesn’t work (a.k.a. too stupid to look past society)
– Not popular at school (a.k.a. she wants to do drugs and waste her teenage life)
– Thinks she’s smart (a.k.a. uses man-made tests to gauge her intelligence)
– May be skinny, may be fat – it’s never pointed out in the book, but she doesn’t want to walk two miles to school. So she drives there. Every day. Two miles. 3.2 kilometres. (a.k.a. typical American – fat, rich, and lovin’ it)
– Hates dancing (a.k.a. fat)
…and the like.
Anyways, in summary, all her bad qualities are ones everyone thinks they have (can’t dance, unpopular, etc.), and all her good qualities are qualities people think they have (smart, etc.) – her other good qualities are qualities that come out in the book, so any stupid teenage girl can dream about finding that she tastes good to a vampire, etc.
Meyer is a MASTER of manipulation. She’s a genius! Completely and utterly so.
A genius that would do anything for money, even write a book like this.
But, this makes sense.
This is the difference between the true, literary genius, Kuroneko, and the completely worthless, spoiled, lazy, and opportunative genius, Kirino.
Kuroneko’d write something purely because it’s good. Kirino would write something purely because it sells.
Of course, not everything that sells is written by a genius like Meyer (who we know is a genius, because of her masterfully twisted words). In Kirino’s case, I take back my words – she’s just an idiot who likes little sisters. Luck and intelligence – money comes later.
She could’ve done something with her life. Not write a book like this, but actually create a piece of literature. Something that actually has meaning. Her vocabulary and education are up to the task. But no – she just chose to go the path of the devil, leading to riches in life, and hell in death.
In fact, according to this dedication, her sister, Emily, practically forced her to finish Twilight (“Without her, this book may still have been unfinished”). A genius cannot create if forced to. She came up with Twilight instead.
Ah, the beauty of twilight. As a novel, brilliant. As a book, good.
500 pages is a lot, you know?
So as a piece of literature, I was afraid that the owner of the book would have caught me ripping it to shreds. There was no content whatsoever.
(except for that one part where Edward’s perfect eyes looked at me from his perfect face as perfect mucus dripped out of his perfect nose, that was very contentful)
I’m on vacation for an indefinite period of time.
:| The only way I can make this even a little bit fun is if I forget every single thing I still need to do on the internet.
So I’ll do just that.
I’ve scheduled posts (or will be) for the duration of my trip; so have nice lives~
So, as you can tell from the title, it’s Yuchoy’s birthday today. Let’s do what pretty much everybody else in the world does, sing a short song that he most likely doesn’t care the least bit about.
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Your mom made me cake,
Happy Birthday to you
Yeah… While I was at his house his mom gave me cake, it was burger cake. It looked nice and all that but I couldn’t eat it. The buns were vanilla cake or something, the lettuce was real lettuce. The cheese was disgusting, pieces of mango, then the worst of all, the patty. Just pure chocolate.
Anyways, he’s going to see the movie RED which is about old people kicking young people’s butts. One examples of this would be sniping a missile as it heads towards him and then havung the missile explode in mid-air. After that, he’s going to Boston to eat pizza.
So yeah, give him a little happy birthday today by commenting, email, envelope mail or screaming it at the sky.
Oh yeah, just a note, I won’t be posting again till 2011. Cyah for now
Yeah, all that overdramaticness probably wasn’t necessary, cause now the computer’s been upgraded to a WINDOORS SEVEN and is probably 10 times faster.
Unfortunately, my family found out I had 20 GB of animu on my drive, though I’m still not sure whether they thought those were just games…
So, yeah, I’m back. It’ll take me a while to get used to this, so I’ll be extremely disactive in a bunch of places, but regular posting’ll continue.
Note where this is categorized.
Alright, it’s been settled.
All three desktop computers are dead.
The first one, something like a decade or so old, is in an unending repetitive loop of resets. It’s not like it can run anything anymore, anyways…
The second one’s fan is broken. I suppose it still works, but the fan’s sound makes it… unusable. We got it for free, so it’s not like we’re losing anything, is it? :P
The final one’s /very/ new, only about three years old; yet, suddenly, that died as well.
…Which means I won’t be active anywhere anymore.
Keep up the blog while I’m gone, k?
Have nice lives.
“…Kaguya. Your computer’s dead.”
Yeah, this post has little to do with the title, as really, my head is quite intact (and the bleeding has stopped!! ;).
Anyways, recently (on Sunday), both our (my family) 10-year old already-broken-down-like-fifty-times computer broke down (it’s stuck in an infinite recursive cycle of startups now), and our 2-year old really-new how-could-this-break computer broke down – right after I hit ‘Publish’ on the Kaminomi post. Phew.
Anywho, that means I’m using an even crappier computer to type on now, have none of my data (however – everything I have is saved onto dropbox, just too lazy to unpack), none of my passwords (unless I extract them, which takes half an hour which was what I did to get onto WordPress), and really, none of anything.
So, you won’t be seeing any posts from me for a while, nor any forum posts (not that I’ve went on any forums recently), comments (not that I went to google reader recently), and tweets (…well, I suppose I have tweeted recently).
Also, the stupidly stupid thing was that right as I got my password for Chess.com, I timed out on one of my games. I clicked on the game, it even SAID ‘<1 minute left', I clicked 'Submit Move', and then…
OOPS. THIS GAME HAS ALREADY ENDED.
ALL MY LOST GAMES (with the exception of one) IN THAT TOURNAMENT WERE LOST BECAUSE I RAN OUT OF TIME BECAUSE THE BUS WAS TOO FUCKING SLOW WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY HWY HWY WHY HWY YWH HYW HIGHWAY
(that also means all I'm gonna do for the next little while is read manga (can't watch anime though, because stupidly slow d/l speeds, and can't compose either because of no software). Oh, all my school data is sorta gone too. OH WELL)
So like, I obviously fail at dedication, and I haven’t made a post in like a year or something. After much time, I finished all possible games that I would like to play, and exhausted the manga that I actually want to read. Thus, I’m coming back to O-New, (Like for real this time. If you don’t think I will, then just comment cuz I actually need to know if people read this stuff) and for today, Ima posting about something that I actually like, which is BLACK OPS HURRRRRRRRRRR
——IMAGE REMOVED DUE TO FUCKING JERKS NOT LETTING US HOTLINK——–
DO YOU KNOW WHY ITS GONNA BE AWESOME? Cuz you can paint your face to look like the Joker. No actually, it’s because the pre-orders have already exceeded Modern Warfare 2′s record
WHY SO SERIOU- nvm
Obviously, no one cares about campaign or co-op (honestly who buys a FPS just for campaign?) Therefore, it’ll all be on multiplayer.
The one thing about multiplayer this time around are WAGER matches. Wager Matches are four different type of gameplay modes, that involve you cashing in your money (now they use money for stuff) and if you get in the top 3 score, you’ll get more money. The Wager Matches are Gun Game, in which you start with a .44 Magnum, and for every kill, move to the next weapon (in this case, the second weapon after you get a kill would be Dual-Wield Makarovs) all the way to the Ballistic Knife. There is also Sharpshooter, which is everyone has the same weapon for 45 seconds, and then all of them are switched for a new weapon. In addition, every kill you get will get you a new perk, while you lose all of them when you die. Next, there is One in the Chamber, which is the only thing everyone has is a pistol and a knife. Every player starts with one bullet, and once they use it, they mus resort to melee. For every kill you get, you get one bullet. Lastly, there is Sticks and Stones. Your weapon choices are a tomahawk, a ballistic knife, and a explosive crossbow. Have fun.
One thing about Black Ops you have to know are the customization options. Firstly, you can customize your red dot sight reticule to a whole bunch of different ways.
You can also change it to other stuff, like a skull
In addition, you can totally customize your emblem into these completely bizarre…emblems.
Many people suggested putting a sword at a suggestive place on a guy...
In addition, the killstreaks have some pretty awesome editions, like this
WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? (who, who, whowho)
Besides the rabid dogs, (notice the emblem in the top right corner. A billion people suggested putting the sword at…nvm) For killstreaks, you have now a RC car that is armed with an explosive, RC rockets, and more.
Last but not least, we have theater mode. The people at Treyarch are all like “Hurr it’s for watching particle effects.” No, it’s for banning boosters, cuz now you have evidence, what with a camera monitoring everyone’s movement in every single match they play. :D You can stalk people and ban them. 10/10 just for that.
Most people will be following other things than a RC rocket...
Otherwise, that’s Black Ops to you, and remember kids, watch out for scary people online, cuz you never what will…
OMFG WTF BBQ?
There’s a time in your
life weekend, where you get to stop and think.
Last Saturday, I stayed home and so I had a lot of time, just to think.
I asked myself, what were my priorities? Sure, playing games and fooling around on the computer was entertaining but other than that, they had no purpose. Because of this, I’ve decided that I should spend more time improving the quality of some other things I do rather than watching videos or writing posts for this blog.
I’m only going to be posting stuff weekly on Thursdays now. Hopefully, the quality of my piano, homework and swimming will improve now that I spend less time on the computer.
DAVE DAVE DAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE DAVVVVVE DAVEEEEEE D-D-D-D-D-DAVE BREAKER D-D-D-D-D-D-D-DOMBO DREAKER
So yes, I have internet connection while on vacation! I can post! I can be up to date on my one-person video subscriptions[EDIT: Not enough internet to actually do this.]! AND DAAAAAVE
>-Actual O-NEG Begins Here
Inquisitive Dave is a game. Games are this.* ID (cue Koishi danmaku and Freudian quotes) is about a person named Dave. He presumably goes around SAVING THE WORLDDDD-DAVE DAVE DAVE RAVE.
[Some people may notice at this point that I feel all rave-y today RAVE ON DAVE
ID uses the mouse FOR ONLY ONE PURPOSE. This is to regain focus on the Adoozy Falsh control thingamajigger if focus is lost. Otherwise, use WASD/<^>v ** and SPACE AND THE GALAAAAAXYBAR/Enter.
List1: Things Dave Can Do
Dave can JUMP.*** Press W or ^.
Dave can MOVE UPUPDOWNDOWNLEFTRIGHTLEFTRIGHTBASELECTSTART****
Dave can SAVE THE WORLD 
List2: Things Fatal To Dave
- Water: DAVE CAN’T SWIMMMM- blub
- Guns: DAVE HAS NO BULLET TIME
- Crocodiles: ITS SOOPER EFFEKTIV
- Antlions: The ones from Tremors.
- Poisonous-To-Dave Berries: They’re deadly POISON! ALSO ADDICTIVE OR SOMETHING!
- The End Of The World: 2012
- Wizard (EVIL): Shoots an Electric Zap. See Electric Zap.
- Electric Zap: See WIZARD
>–Back To The O-NEG Here
ID: This is like a Point-And-Click game (It’s a Falsh game, remember? KONGREGATE FTW), except without the use of the SACRED MOUSE. And with sarcastic comments.
List3: Sarcastic Quotes From ID:*****
- “It’s a puddle. You’d better hurry up and escape soon because there’s a dripping up in the ceiling; the water level could reach a whole foot in the next millenia or two.”
- (Outside of prison, talking to prison guard for your cell) “Go away. I’m guarding the prisoner.” (You are the prisoner :/)
- “It’s some of that Awesomade. Didn’t they stop making that after that kid’s eyes fell out?”
- (Intro) Dave: “If only there was some sort of guiding player to make decisions for me!”
Thus we see that ID has a sense of humour. ID does seem to have an awful amount of walking back and forth, but the humour is very well implemented (Thus we see ID is more like a humour romp than a game~). The FINAL BOSS is also pretty creatively made (HINT: CAMPING RAVE RAVE RAVE).
By the way, you haven’t learned anything from reading this post. Hurrrrm. Also, the link is here.
FINAL REVIEW: 8.9/10
*Or at least Super Mario Galaxy 2 is that.
***So can Greg~.
****He can’t actually move down w/out gravity. He can’t move selectstartba either :/
*****Not direct quotes.
Ahahaha….I’m back….wtf? >_> Damn I thought Mushy would Nurarihyon and HoTD while I was gone. Anyways, back from Disneyland…hopefully this post gets oevr 900 views? :P
I’ve deleted all stupid posts. >:(
I’m not sure whether or not the YuChoy one is true.
But argh can’t you guys have any semblance of organization :<
awesomebananadancer will not be posting until like August 6th due to an exam.
yuchoy will not be posting till an undefined period of time as right now, he is in California.
Houraiguy will also probably not be posting until mid-August due to vacation leave.
awesomebananadancer will not be posting until like August 6th due to an exam.
Well, I’ve recruited someone… yay!
It was really really hard to choose who to pick, because there were just SO MANY applications…
It took FOREVER even just to LOOK at every single one of them…!
…Er, actually there were only 2 applications :X
Anyways, the new poster is someone I know from real life, so I dunno what to call him on the interwebz (this is why people should just use one username for everything >:O)…
…I guess he’ll write his introductions, hopefully on time and all that.
In the meantime, I’ll be spending all my time focusing on my final project and chinese exam (#SuicideSaturday); hopefully I’ll be back next Sunday, at the latest…
I’ll have some aniposts out after Tuesday though :D (hopefully)…
In a side note, this is officially my 100th post (not counting system posts, it’d be something like 105 if you counted them though :/)…!
So I guess I’m leaving with a bang.
^ Arrange of Deaf to all but the song; it’s much slower :D
^ オリエンタルダークフライト remix…? Gets sorta repetitive after a while but still interesting…!
