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
watashi no kyarutaipu wa terrible da»
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.

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:
- May the Fourth
- How I’ve Only Watched the First Episode of Star Wars
- Dropbox Contests
- Cinco de Mayo
- Birthday Presents
- How I’m Not a Nerd Because I Don’t Play Video Games
- How I Learned to Love the Aniblog Tourney
- Flower Pictures
- Your Face
- Outdoor Track Meets
- 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»
Watch out!! It’s a post about GANGSTA, GREEK FOOD, and GOOGLE today (and NOT a pedo bear by madoka how MANY PEOPLE search for pedo bear EVERY SINGLE DAY and get to this stupid fucking blog… I got 1.4 MILLION impressions for my blog by people searching pedo bear in the last WEEK. why, society?! why?)! :o
Yes, I realize, it’s strange – after all, with Daylight Savings Time started, I now have an extra hour every day to post, but.. nope? That’s because I decided to eat Greek food. The end. Updates later tomorrow. Or below. Click that more link».
I guess these students can really SPARE some time to STRIKE, because that’s what they’re doing in this stereotypical rainy Vancouver afternoon.
Want to know what I’m talking about? CBC has an article here. Really, just search up ‘British Columbia student walkout’ and you’ll find hundreds of articles on it. However, after my five minutes of sleuthing, CBC’s article seems to be the most unbiased.
As a student in the BC public school system that has witnessed th-oh fuck I can’t type formally, here, let’s inject some much-needed CAPITALISM
I am a STUDENT in BC. Many of my fellow students WALKED OUT of school TODAY at 2:00, two hours before THIS POST was posted. Unfortunately, I did not, even though I just sat around and did NOTHING in my final block, and I would’ve been more productive SKIPPING school and WRITING this post at HOME instead. However, I did not SKIP school, and neither did I go to the PROTEST.
Because I’ve done my RESEARCH, and I don’t BELIEVE in this protest.
What is the protest saying?
The ORGANIZERS say it’s to encourage mutual RESPECT between the government and the TEACHERS. Yet, that’s not what the STUDENTS are thinking. They’re thinking that it’s to promote EDUCATION by paying teachers MORE and easing class composition ISSUES. That’s not the point of THIS protest; that’s the point of the TEACHERS’ protest.
We’re already PAST the point of bargaining. Teachers are striking to make a POINT, not because they actually BELIEVE that the government will give them a pay raise this year. No, everybody (except the STUDENTS) know that the strike is going to FADE AWAY, the BCTF’s going to accept NET-ZERO, and not even government’s Bill 22 (which will STRIP teachers of their RIGHT to STRIKE) will pass. In effect, it’ll end in an IMPASSE, with both parties WARILY agreeing to a contract that NOBODY WANTS.
And nothing can change this, anymore. Not even a PROTEST. My English teacher once said that protesting is useless; the important part is creating a SOLUTION. Yet, currently, she’s PROTESTING, and her solution? “Give us more money!”
Towards the actual issue, I’m AMBIVALENT. Both sides have COHERENT arguments and UNDERSTANDABLE reasons for what they’re doing. Yet, neither side is willing to RESPECT the other side. I cannot approve of EITHER. You guys know I’m telling the truth, because I always tell the truth on O-New. Besides, we’re a pretty OPINIONATED blog, and we’re NOT AFRAID to show that we HATE J.C. STAFF, a position that has alienated me from FLARE, that other blogger on O-New who never blogs. So, we have no reason to HIDE our opinions, and when we SAY we’re neutral, we MEAN that I’m neutral. Yes, I’m too lazy to replace all the ‘we’s in those sentences with ‘I’s. Maybe you can help me do that, and be my ears and ‘I’s. Ha ha ha.
At least, the teachers, by striking for three days from Monday to Wednesday, leave me with an effective five-day-weekend, extending my science fair project (which was originally due Monday) that I haven’t started’s deadline by five days. Furthermore, after a final Thursday and Friday of school next week, it’ll be a two-week-long Spring Break… =3=
In summary: I don’t have a better POST to POST today. This alliteration should sum things up pretty CONCISELY:
Currently, crazy Canadian countrymen cannot co-operatively compromise.
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.
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»
So, I’m going on vacation to some vacation-place for the next three days. Thus, all the posts in the next three days have already been written in advance, and they’re only of anime that’s already aired as of today – after all, I CAN’T WATCH ANIME BEFORE IT AIRS SORRY
Nobody likes me»

(It’s not about this.)
Or is it…»
SCHOOL IS OVER, DEAL WITH IT BITCHES
ALSO LOOK MY TAG LIST IS LONGER THAN MY POST
Yep, 17 days of vacation over from a visit to Historich. I’ll be breaking the post into two main parts, one of (gasp) the first half of my vacation and the second of (gasp) the second half of my vacation, since one post would be too image-heavy and I WANT TO UPLOAD ALL OF THESE IMAGES (really, both posts are more picture dumps than actual posts)! Unfortunately, I forgot which half came first, as I’m writing this post AT SEPTEMBER 5TH, A DAY BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS. I don’t even REMEMBER what I did because I LOST THE DOUBLE-SIDED SHEET OF PAPER I TOOK ALL MY NOTES ON :|
Wait, back up a bit.
And now I’m gone for three weeks.
Don’t read on»
The thesaurus is a wonderful thing.
100 MB left of space on my hard drive (no externals); I wonder how long I’ll last ;_;
ENDNOTE: How long has it been since I used the filler tag? Gosh…
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~
EDIT: As of something like 7 hours before this post is/was/will be published, I have returned home. YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH. It’s also ta last scheduled post, so… YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH. Below is still ta unedited, raw lol-make-7-posts-on-Friday version :P
From danbooru (NSFW ads) – I did not draw this (how could I?!)
Ta final on vacation post, or so I hope.
If this post-time is correct, in approximately 3 or so hours I’ll be awake and headed ta school. I’m also probably back from wherever I went, which means I’ll have some three-four-odd days of forums/Google “1000+ new articles” Reader ta go through, but…
well, I’d say ‘but at least ta vacation was fun!’ but it /probably/ wasn’t. So, I’ll say ‘at least I got 16 hours of sleep a day!’ or something like that. :V If I get less sleep than usual then this vacation sucks.
*getting confused by writing past tense on future events because this’ll be published in ta future, but currently writing in ta past*
Anyways, I’ll be going ta school.
AN ENTIRELY NEW SCHOOL FULL OF EVIL VAMPIRES AND DEMONS AND CENTIPEDES. AND CHALK-THROWING TEACHERS. BUT NO ASTHMATIC LIBRARIANS ;_;
Thankfully, houraiguy’s coming with me so I have
a meatshield er cannon fodder because TA BEST DEFENCE IS A PERFECT OFFENCE. AND CHALK CAN’T PIERCE THROUGH HUMAN MEATSHIELDS. Or cannon fodder.
In other (somewhat link-like, cause ya know I can’t just write a post without any links) news, Duke Nukem is ACTUALLY BEING DEVELOPED. Having started development a whopping THIRTEEN years ago (FOUR years longer than Inception has!), it’s been recently announced that it’s continuing again. Thousands of articles are exploding over ta net right now, so I can’t really just link to one; instead, I’ll link ta none (but this comic) and tell ya guys just ta search for ‘Duke Nukem Forever’.
After all this hype and wait, it better not disappoint.
So, with that, I’m back; and hopefully, I’ll manage ta wade through ta 20-odd post drafts we have stored currently and actually, finally, do something.
Cause it’s ta last few days of Summer, my family’s going away ta a FARAWAY LAND or something.
Since nobody else posts here anymore besides me, I’ve got ta schedule several posts for ta weekend.
On that note: there’ll be posts, maybe like one video a post, two posts a day, for ta weekend. I won’t add much in terms of content, but… :V
I /hope/ I’ll have fun but I probably won’t, so.. :/
Pics and other obvious stuff when I come back though.
So for now, so long and farewell; once I’m back, school’ll have started.
;_; I can’t say HAR HAR HAR ta ya Americans anymore…
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.
…One excel file.
Basically, for my blogroll, I’m only going to put up the sites I’ve O-REW’d. Thus, I’ve put the other sites in an Excel file and will take them out after they’re OREW-D… that way, I can make adding links much less of a pain >_>
…Er, I don’t have much to say now… I don’t have any links either as I haven’t been active in basically anything…
Oh yes. My dad went to China for a business trip, which should’ve meant computer tiem + 1 hour for me, but unfortunately my mom’s taking a vacation during the same week. :<
Thankfully that means I’ll actually work on my project that’s due on Tuesday that I haven’t started yet.
