What a way to start off the new year! The symbolism behind rewriting a ST&RS post for New Year’s is that at O-New, the new year’s going to bring upon us the same fate as ST&RS: a slow, painful death from neglect, disinterest, and creative stagnation!
Here’s a picture of Shirafune farting.
The symbolism is that I’m an old fart»
No, this isn’t a post on Another anime. I haven’t watched Another anime. I haven’t watched any anime this season but Mouretsu Pirates, and I hadn’t watched any anime last season but Mouretsu Pirates and Black★Rock Shooter (TV). Yeah. Gotta work on my priorities a bit.
But for now, here’s a post celebrating me inching one year closer to my inevitable death. Congratulations, I’m now older than 26.3% of the world’s population and 18.2% of Canada’s population.
I know that I’ve never shown my face online before, but just this once, I’ll show you guys what I look like in real life:
Yes, I am black. Yes, I am naked. Yes, this is the only post for today because I’m an egotistical bastard. Yes, you can look at yesterday’s post which actually contains three new posts (in links) for you to read. Yes, I’m going to sleep.
P.S. No, I’m not black.
Valentine’s Day? I don’t know such a thing! Everyone’s all like ‘Happy Violin-Tynes Day’, ‘Bro, you must be sad being forever alone but you deserve it because you spend your time writing articles about foreign cartoons instead of socializing’, ‘Hey M-m-m-mushy… I have something to say to you… I-I-I THINK YOU’RE A STUPID NERD AND YOU SHOULD DIE. THE END. P.S. GET A LIFE YOU LOSER.’ today and I really hate it all.
Why the well should we celebrate Violin-Tynes Day? Violins don’t even have tynes. Cellos have a tyne at the bottom to hold them in place. Violas have a tyne at the somewhere to sometimes the something. Violins don’t have any tynes at all.
Not only are violas warmer, fuller, richer, manlier, cuter, greater, and generally and specifically awesomer than violins in every aspect possible, but violins are less awesome than violas both generally and specifically in every possible respect.
Therefore, I hereby declare today ‘Viola-Tynes Day’. Not ‘Viola-Tyne’s Day’ (for today is not the Day the Viola-Tyne possesses), nor ‘Viola-Tynes’ Day’ (for today is not the Day the Viola-Tynes possess), but simply ‘Viola-Tynes Day’ – the Day of the Viola-Tynes.
And it’s not a happy day, either. >:|
Go wish @Bitzeralisis (yes, I know the link points to a Touhou RP account, deal with it) luck. He’s actually trying to do something Viola-Tynes related for Viola-Tynes Day. Not Violin-Tynes Day. Get it right, folks! Follow good examples! Don’t follow me! Except on Twitter! Actually, don’t follow me on Twitter either, all I do is shout and spoil and snake and slurp and [insert five-letter verbs beginning with an ‘s’ here].
P.S. don’t listen to flare he always lies like the flare he is. what a flare. i think he is a potato in reality and in the skies.
P.P.S. don’t look at the tags list they always lie like the tags they are. what tags. i think they are potatoes in reality and in the skies.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Though, not really. Even though I feel 20x better than I did yesterday after yesterday (a good night’s sleep always does the trick), it seems that the FUTURE OF ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADING ANIME is bleak.
What I’m trying to say is, my Bodacious Space Pirates post is finally finished. This matters because this post had no content, and I’m not going to be making a post for the next two days because I’m too busy being Chinese. Sorry about that.
tl;dr: Happy Chinese New Year!!
P.S. ‘i exclaimed, ‘i claim that two exclamation marks claim exclamations more exclaiming!!’,’ they claimed
P.P.S. Yes, I realize this is being published on Chinese New Year at 00:00 PST, instead of on Chinese New Year at 00:00 CST. Deal with it.
P.P.P.S. In searching for what China’s time zone’s acronym was (it’s CST, by the way – China Standard Time), I stumbled upon an odd fact – a small country in the Pacific, Samoa, changed its time zone just 22 (or is it 23?) days ago. How did they change it? It wasn’t Daylight Savings Time, or hopping over one time zone or anything like that. No; Samoa leapt right across the International Date Line, skipping December 30st, 2011 and going straight from December 29th into December 31st, and a day later becoming the first country in the entire world to experience the New Year, and all future New Years unless they decide to leap back across the Date Line again. Because they have leapt across the Date Line before; in July 4th, 1892, Samoans (including the Samoan girl who) leapt through time to the American side and celebrated Independence Day twice. But now, 119 years later, Samoan is back again on the same date as the Australians. This is relevant because this post is about the Chinese New Year, which the Samoans were the first to celebrate. However, because Samoa operates on Daylight Savings Time (while Tokelau, also in Samoa’s time zone, doesn’t), during the Southern winter, Samoa starts days one hour behind Tokelau. But since all New Years take place during the Southern summer, Samoans are the first to celebrate all New Years, along with Tokelauans. What I’m saying is, happy Chinese New Year!
P.P.P.P.S. In searching for what Samoa’s time zone was (it’s UTC+13:00 in the Southern winter and UTC+14:00 in the Southern summer, by the way), I stumbled upon an odd fact – a small country in the Pacific, Samoa, changed its driving direction just 2 (or is it 3?) years ago. How did they change it? They, uh just did; Samoa leapt right across the lanes, skipping the middle and going straight from the right side of the road into the left side on September 7th, 2009. This is not relevant to anything that is happening currently, may happen in the future, or has happened in the past, including the event itself.
Alright, I’m still on vacation (if I were back home, I’d edit off this sentence, so you know that I’m still on vacation), but that doesn’t stop me from creating obligatory picture-less dull posts celebrating an arbitrary date that signifies it’s been a year since the last time this date came by, which was, surprisingly, exactly a year ago!
Read that post instead, it’s
longer more colourful!
Anyways, because this is an obligatory update, I guess I’ll have to update you guys on how the date has been ‘upped’ from 2011 to 2012! HAHAHAHAHA THAT WAS A JOKE
But seriously, updates:
1. Horizon post not going to come out until I come back from vacation, obviously, as the episode wasn’t released when I went away.
2. NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION: to go to Anime Club more. Seriously, going to Anime Club is like smoking anti-weed – you know it’s good for you, but you just don’t want to go. Wait, it’s good for me…?
3. …I can’t think of anything else.
4. Apocalypse coming in twelve months and twenty-something-odd days! Hurrah!
5. Fall 2011 Mid-season review still not up because I’m still on episode 4 of every show this season…
6. Logically, you wouldn’t expect the Winter 2012 preview to be up either… which is why it’s not up. UNLIKE THE YEAR WHICH IS UP HAHAHAHAHAHA
7. Happy New Years, everybody~!
“After all, I train for three days straight every day!”
Maybe she trained for three days curved»
AX: FUNimation has recently acquired Steindo;Gate…
Hacking to the wait»
[It’s July 1st! Canada Day! The Birthday of Canada, even! Well, at least as a dominion of Britain…]
“How would you like to have a little… fun tonight?”
And then they played Yu-Gi-Oh»
(Shinryaku! Ika Musume Specials [Completed] Rewritten)
Hurr, Canucks game at 6 in 6/6. Nice number, eh.
I swear if each Touhou was assigned a number we’d be celebrating some day like every three days. On average, though. Probably going to have one day with 7 celebrations or something, heh.
Anyway, two or something more weeks till school’s over, and then I can finally reorganize/rewrite all those posts and stuff. Until then, another picture by the same artist. His/her art style’s nice.
Happy Mothers Day.
In essence, this is pretty much a filler.
Also, yuchoy is permanently leaving O-New.
Expect more fillers.
I talked to mushy. There’s the convo.
Mushy: mann my lag is amazigng
Mushy: I should like sell this lag for money as an antique or something
Oh, guess what?
It’s my Birthday, it seems.
But with more cake than her»
[Announcement: Only Rewrote History because… well, check the post time.]
I have a new camera.
As if I’ll show you how good it is»
Try to have a not-so-sad ronery day, everybody.
Hey, at least I’m not making 14 posts leading up to this day ;w;
Oh, link to ZUN realizing there’s too much Touhou.
Seriously, that is all.
EDIT: Actually, no it isn’t.
Today (not in GMT, in PST) happens to be a Palindrome Date, when written as 11/02/2011. This only happens once a year (gosh, that’s so hard to believe!), and only in some years, specifically years in the first and second century of each millennium. Of course, this could technically happen twice a year, and it will, with 11/02/2011 (November 2nd, instead of February 11th), but that’s in another time-format, so…
Also, today is the day of the British Columbia Liberal Party’s vote to select their new leader. Except WHO CARES THEY’RE GONNA DO NOTHING ANYWAYS
Finally, to-month is exactly one year after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, hosted in Vancouver, Canada (not Washington)! Woohoo.
it’s rabbit time.
(images link to danbo, NSFW ads)
It’s the 26th o’er at London there, but it’s still gonna be the 25th in Canadia when this post is published.
I’m hopefully sleeping in bed or something equally entertaining currently; for those of us in less welcoming situations, I do hope you’ll lighten up, for it’s that time of year again.
To those who are living in more comfortable scenarios right now, you have no idea how much I >:|
Once again, have very nice Christmases everyone~!
