CANADA DAY and Flare’s Birthday

Hey everybody. Guess what day it is.

THAT’S RIGHT, it’s CANADA DAY, the 145th ANNIVERSARY of the DAY that CANADA became a country under the British Empire! It also happens to be several months after the 30th ANNIVERSARY of the DAY that CANADA didn’t have to ask the British Parliament every single time we wanted to change the constitution! OK, I admit, the latter sounds less impressive but until then Canada wasn’t really a sovereign state! Now, we still sorta belong to the Commonwealth but we can do whatever we want!

Similarly, O-New can do whatever we want as well: except we CAN’T because only I can do whatever I want, and I’m an egotistical bastard that won’t let you guys do whatever you want.

As recompense, let’s all wish Flare a not-too-sad birthday in his little country of Bulgaria while the rest of CANADA celebrates and drinks maple syrup by the gallon.

P.S. It’s actually not his birthday in Canada yet. Bulgaria is just ahead of Canada in time, but you know what they say, the slower the country, the faster the… uh… I don’t know what they say.

BUT WAIT! That’s not all! Did you expect this post to only be about CANADA DAY and Flare’s Birthday? No! It’s about something else that also rhymes with day: O-New’s posting schedule…ay. Schedulay. Schedulé?

Since it is now officially SUMMER VACATION (because, Spanish shock, it’s JULY THE FIRST!!!)… O-New will be blogging…

TEN POSTS A WEEK! :O :O :O

We’ll be blogging two posts on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and one post on every other day. Why? Because we have so much crap to say (and so many more people to say it)! Why? Because we want to lose subscribers who don’t want to see so much crap in their mailbox. Why? Because we posted twice a day last last summer and that was a great fiasco! Why? I… don’t know…

P.P.S. It’s actually summer vacation in Canada already. Canada is just ahead of summer in time, but you know what they say, summer vacation’s only as long as you want it to be. Uh… that’s not what they say.


May the Fourth Be With You

Yes, I know. The pun doesn’t even make sense, because y’know, it’s actually May 6th right now and I’m lying to you guys about this post date. But guess what, O-New TRANSCENDS time and space, and I can post bad puns ANYWHERE, ANYTIME I want to. DEAL WITH IT

In this post which is not about anime nor manga and is instead about the life of the most boring person to ever walk the earth, I will talk about:

  1. May the Fourth
  2. How I’ve Only Watched the First Episode of Star Wars
  3. Dropbox Contests
  4. Cinco de Mayo
  5. Birthday Presents
  6. How I’m Not a Nerd Because I Don’t Play Video Games
  7. How I Learned to Love the Aniblog Tourney
  8. Flower Pictures
  9. Your Face
  10. Outdoor Track Meets
  11. Your Mother’s Face

Rest assured, I will touch upon every single one of those topics, and in that order!!

Yes, I will also touch your mother’s face»


Obligatory New Years Update

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~!


Half-Priced Lunch-Boxing Day

It’s a pun. Get it?

Cause it’s Boxing Day and I’m off to shop, so there won’t be a proper post for today. The Half-Priced Lunch Box part is because I’ll be posting the Ben-To final post tomorrow. Look forward to it~

P.S. Ben-To is actually about Half-Priced Dinner-Boxes…


Merry Christmas: Twelve Days of Comments

Y’know, I never understood why people used colons in post titles. I was originally going to make something punny around ‘comment’ and ‘christmas’ having the same first letter, but I guess my brain blanked out so I had to write a boring coloned title instead. You can call me Colonel Title if you want.

This is a Christmas post because, at the date of this post being published, it is Christmas in London, Portugal, and Morocco – the only countries which matter.

BUT TO EVERYBODY WEST OF EUROPE, IT IS NOT CHRISTMAS YET

You have NO IDEA HOW MANY TIMES

I HAVE SAID TO PEOPLE

THAT IT IS NOT CHRISTMAS YET

…Except, now it is.

Winter solstice is over. Autumn is over.

It is now Winter.

Merry Christmas, everybody.

BUT IT IS NOT NEW YEARS YET»


FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM

It’s like this, but school’s over for the Winter Holidays (capitalized because you can’t have Christmas without capitalism).

Here’s my 2011 Fall Anime Second Thoughts post, finally finished after three-quarters of ten-thousand words of effort. totally not worth it

Here’s O-REW 7: Not Always Right. For those who’ve forgotten/don’t care about what an O-REW is, it’s basically when I o-REVIEW (get it, ahahahaha so funny) a site so that I can put it in my Links page. Yes, I actually have one.

Both of these articles were not finished on the dates they were published, but now they are! So read them! I’ll probably start posting two posts a day during this break, because I really need to catch up with all the posts that I didn’t post.

Exciting CHESS BATTLE commentary after the break.

This is the break»
