O-New: Weekend Review

July is just around the corner. No, I don’t mean ‘in a week’ or ‘in two days’, I mean in approximately one hour it will be July in London. And now that’s a problem for us here at O-New because things happen on July, including Canada Day, Flare’s Birthday, and a whole host of other things which rhyme with Day including Olé, Nikkei, Essay, and Weigh. Yes, those four items do add up to O-NEW which is the topic of our discussion today: another weekend review.

Review on, i.e. view again»

Seeing Seattle’s Seas

In a pitiful attempt to introduce new scheduled posts à la Musical Mondays, it’s time to pitifully attempt to schedule new introduction posts with a new tag: Vendredis de Vacances! Which means ‘Fridays of Vacation’ in French, which I had to make in french to keep its alliterative qualities, for no weekday begins with a ‘V’. Anyhow, these posts will have me talk about my ~marvelous adventures~ in being an overbearing first-world snob and wasting money on frivolous tours.

So. Yep. Seattle. Again.

It’s a vacation post. Expect pretty pictures. Prepare for letdown. (HINT: The link in the above paragraph actually contains PRETTY PICTURES!!) Death of my life, it’s my character to only take ugly pictures

Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa 29 [Completed]

Anyways, before we move on to the actual post, let’s talk about Google while you wait for me to post this. I lost access to my Gmail account because it was accessed ‘from a suspicious location’. I think that was me testing out Tor to see if it worked, but now, I have NO WAY of verifying that it’s my account!!! Seeing as a) I don’t have a mobile phone and b) Even if I did, I didn’t fill out the mobile phone number thing (seeing as I, well, don’t have one). Back in the good ol’ days, they’d just call your landline. Hahaha, I guess I didn’t fill out that field either.

I understand that calling by phone is more secure than sending a password to an email, but… this is just bringing my Internet and real lives together TOO CLOSE. I need like, some PRIVACY here. What with the fiasco over Google+’s use of real names and the non-fiasco of recording the entire WORLD in Google Maps, I fear that Google may soon be going too far – restricting the greatest tenet of the Internet itself, anonymity.

Fuck, my brother’s going to work for Google in two months. brb kicking him

(Meanwhile, english teacher:

“hmmm lets go on my students blog”

“wow very nice content, twelve-thousand word posts”

“…about foreign cartoons”)

ST&RS 21

Man, so I just spent the past six hours running through all the manga that I DIDN’T READ since I haven’t read manga for like, eight weeks. Why does EVERY MANGA have to end on a cliffhanger this week?! Reborn’s cliffhanger of ‘what the hell is happening’, One Piece’s cliffhanger of ‘what the hell is happening’, Beelzebub’s non-cliffhanger of nothing happening, Kaminomi’s actual cliffhanger of ‘what the hell is Keima going to do’, Bakuman’s actual actual cliffhanger of ‘how the heck is this manga not going to end with Mashiro and Takagi tearfully resigning from their jobs due to fan rage, hate, and attempted murder attempts’, and of course, Bleach’s non-cliffhanger of, ‘Wait, THIS IS BLEACH’S FUCKING FINAL ARC FUCK YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!’ Goddammit Bleach, Bleach should’ve ended like, ten thousand chapters ago.

I didn’t even start TOUCHING children because I’m not a lolicon, and I didn’t even start TOUCHING the non-Jump manga yet because there’s SO MUCH MANGA that I haven’t read, and besides, I’d better finish reading these Jump manga before Red Hawk Scanlations pulls off all its manga becomes of DMCA compla-whoops, they’ve already done that.

Anyways-!! Expecting a ST&RS 21 post? Well, YOU’VE GOT IT! Have fun, do whatever you want with it, I have no more fucks to give out, and even if I had I’m not that nice of a guy to give out things for free.

ああああ~ I’d like so much to stay at home and sleep and put あs in my hair but I can’t because 1) I cut my hair 2) I can’t sleep 3) I wouldn’t like so much to stay at home and sleep and put あs in my hair.

Btooom! Manga Quarterly Review 3

Seems it’s American Thanksgiving /and/ Google’s also reduced the damages of their recent change by adding a new ‘display density’ function. But, I LIVE IN CANADA AND THANKSGIVING IS GONE, and I DON’T TRUST GOOGLE ANYMORE AFTER THAT STUPID, STUPID CHANGE IN THE FIRST PLACE!

My face this week:

With a goatee :(»

I Am a Piano [Completed]

[Announcement: YouTube has a new ‘license’ thingy – you can adjust your license to be a CC-BY license while uploading / editing your videos, which allows other people to rip off your work for free and with full legal powers! However, you can only do this to things that are /entirely/ yours – e.g. I don’t think you can mark a performance of a dead person’s composition as something that can be shared. Too bad.]

This short, 8-page story is about a piano.

This post is longer than the manga»

Hourou Musuko and Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica 11

[Announcement: HOLY SHIT, LOOK AT HOW MANY VIEWS I SUDDENLY GOT. I think for some reason our YuChoy’s Pedo Bear post, which was actually just an image, which was actually /ripped/ off of someone else (I don’t condone this), got to the top of Google’s Image Search, and a swarm of ‘pedo bear’ searching people decided to click on it. A LOT. It’s like, holy shit what?]

Eh, since they were both so recently released, I figured I would write about both of them in this post.

O-REW 4: Romaji.org

(Links at the bottom)

Unfortunately, Google Translate only works with moonrunes, that we can’t understand, can’t write, can’t copy, can’t see, can’t hear, can’t eat, and can’t smell if it were in a bathroom three feet away from us.

Thus, I offer the new, and improved, solution to all your Japanese needs that doesn’t require things that you can’t smell if it were in a bathroom three feet away from you!

This post isn’t about bathrooms, I swear»

O-REW 3: Google Translate

To foster multiculturalism, all elements of this site are transferred from numerous diverse languages, such as Polish, Azerbaijani, Yiddish, and Swahili.

After a long delay, the fourth edition of O-New’s Review of Entertaining Websites is finally out – but this time, instead of entertainment, we’re looking to functionality.

Have you ever had to translate something?


Google Translate saves your preferences, so when you open it next time, it’ll have the same translate from- and to- languages.

With a hefty database of fifty-six languages, every major language is included (and a few minor ones too).

What’s more, it loads quite fast; no ads, no subscriptions, and…


What’s more, Google Translate has its built in ‘instant’ function, so now you can search INSTANTLY, because hitting the enter key takes too much work for some of us.

Is this a filler post? Maybe so.

But remember – whenever you need something to translate, you should always use, GOOGLE TRANSLATE.


An Organizational Voyage 6

…So for some reason, I’m watching too much anime  (or enough that I still can’t get organized)..

I’ll follow through with my previous plan except with only one episode of anime a day, and also focus on my test (that I got 44.5% on last time >_<;). In other words, I’ll be pretty busy this week..

Also, I’ll also register for the myriad of forums I have in my backup tabs, just because registering earlier gives moar ossimness.

Links then:


^ So this guy didn’t hold open the elevator door, so he got beaten with.. a pan of pasta. What a waste of pasta.


^ …An amazingly addictive game… 3D tetris O_o (though in reality it’s just normal tetris with a continuous side instead of walls)


^ …Apparently Fox News doesn’t like people who take content off the web, and call that “illegal”, but they’re doing it themselves..


^ Google changed their look, as of yesterday; I’m sure you guys noticed…


^ …Older article about the testing that happened…


^ …What would happen if mario was made in 2010… though the graphics would suck more, too :P


HAHAHAHA, first off, someone actually got to my site through google! Search “acronym O_O tweet” and I think I’m the… 5th result..? Anyways, when you try it, it might not work; google changes too often and stuff.

Anyways, yes, I have downloaded Mabinogi! …Unfortunately, since #SuicideSaturday is coming up and the weekend + Monday is with it, I won’t be able to play until Tuesday. Also, as I still don’t know which server is better (groups of people keep on telling me to go to another server). The choices I have right now are Alexina (which I’m currently on) and Ruairi (which I can make a new char on)… Just email, tweet, shout, or comment on what server you’re on if you’re playing.

Oh, and it happens that I had a Nexon ID (Mushyrulez), however, I lost the password to it.. so I made a new account and is now Mushz :D (this is why you don’t quit Maplestory and the such for 3 years without changing your password to a current one)…

Also, it seems that there’s already a http://onewdesign.com/; I had no idea of this, when I searched Onew on google, a year ago, all I got was this Korean singer guy or something. BUT THEMMIT WE ARE GOING TO PWN THEM SO THAT THIS BLOG WILL BE TEH ONLY ENTRY AND THEN THAT SITE CAN LIEK BECOME A SPAM SITE AND STUFF [/rant]

Alright, links for today (and yesterday):


^ people hate people who hate pluto; hate mail from… young people XP


^ Oh yay, capitalism. Basically, how to get more revenue in social games. You can read the link -_-


^ Hmm… ePad.

Yeah, not many links at all; sorry folks D:


^ just to make myself feel awesomer, CANADa HAZ THE MoST GOlD AND 3RD MOST OVERaLL TAKE ThAT OTHER COUNtRIES >:D
