My Thoughts on the Matter

Posted by Velox , in Other Aug 22 2013 · 1,003 views

Top ten celebrity character crushes (which has basically just become "favorite characters" because I'm not sure I'd say I have crushes for all of them)--both for male and female.
 
Female:
 
  • Fantine (Anne Hathaway)--Les Misérables

    Posted Image

     
  • Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic)--Castle

    Posted Image

     
  • Parker (Beth Riesgraf)--Leverage (honorable mention to her brief appearance in Criminal Minds as Dr. Maeve Donovan as that side story was adorable [edit: er, not the end of it, but the character in general], as well as Maxine from NCIS, because her character was adorable there, too)

    Posted Image

     
  • Young Cosette (Isabelle Allen)--Les Misérables (the exception to this list, as she's obviously not a crush. But her character is still adorable and deserves to be listed)

    Posted Image

     
  • Hermione Granger (Emma Watson [<3])--Harry Potter

    Posted Image

     
  • Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders)--How I Met Your Mother (honorable mention to Maria Hill, from The Avengers)

    Posted Image

     
  • Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)--Game of Thrones

    Posted Image

     
  • Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightly)--Pirates of the Caribbean

    Posted Image

     
  • Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), and Amy Pond (Karen Gillan)--Doctor Who (I can't really decide which is my favorite, and I love them all, so).

    Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

     
  • Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack), Lois Lane (Erica Durance), and Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk)--Smallville (I seem to go through phases with them, and depending on the episode/season, I'll like one more than the other. I'm also almost positive that my mind is just blanking on more female crushes, and so these probably wouldn't be on the list at all if I could remember who I'm forgetting)

    Posted Image


    EDIT:

     
  • Buttercup (Robin Wright)--The Princess Bride (cannot believe I forgot her D: )

    Posted Image
 
 
Male (doing top 15 because there's no way I could choose just 10 D: ):
 
  • Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion)--Castle (honorable mention to Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly, and basically any other character Fillion has played)

    Posted Image

     
  • Hoot (Eric Bana)--Black Hawk Down

    Posted Image

     
  • The Doctor (David Tennant)--Doctor Who

    Posted Image

     
  • Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale)--The Dark Knight Trilogy

    Posted Image

  • Bob Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg)--Shooter (honorable mention to Dignam from The Departed)

    Posted Image

     
  • John Watson/Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman)--Sherlock/The Hobbit

    Posted Image

     
  • George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart)--It's a Wonderful Life

    Posted Image

     
  • Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson)--Taken (also anything Liam Neeson is in, because of his voice; honorable mention specifically to Ra's al Ghul)

    Posted Image

     
  • Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris)--How I Met Your Mother

    Posted Image

     
  • Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln)--The Walking Dead

New Computer

Posted by Velox , in Other Jul 18 2013 · 401 views

So my old laptop died, and it looked like trying to fix it would cost a fairly good amount, plus I needed a new laptop anyway, so my dad decided he'd get me a new one. Ended up being able to get this:
 
Posted Image
 
Acer Aspire Ultrabook M5-581T-6405
 
Really, really happy with it. Ended up costing ~$100 less too because it was a display model. I was originally planning on actually waiting 7-10 days for them to ship one to a nearby store (as no one had it in stock), but when visiting my local BestBuy they found out that a store ~45 minutes from my house had this last one, so me and my dad drove up and got it. 
 
Windows 8 is taking a little getting used to, but I'm still loving the computer so far--so much better than my old laptop, fairly thin and lightweight, fast, backlit keyboard, etc. (and it has a DVD player ^^) I wanted this one specifically because a friend from school has an older version and completely loves it, plus I had seen her laptop before and used it. And for just the basic stuff that I'm using it for, it's definitely nice. 
 
Hopefully going to be able to recover all of my files...if not, at the very least I had a few of my main things (mostly large writing projects) saved onto Dropbox, so I still have those, plus I backed up my computer a few months ago, which means I'll only lose some recent things if I'm not able to recover them.

2012 in Review

Posted by Velox , in BZPower, Other, Life Jan 05 2013 · 437 views

So 2012 was an amazing year. Most probably the best year I’ve had yet. I’ve made some mistakes, I’ve done some stupid things, I haven’t done quite as much writing or reading as I would’ve liked, and there’s been a few other small downtimes, but overall it was amazing. So, let’s break down the categories (I considered separating them like Nuile did, but I figured why not just put them all in one entry…maybe that was a mistake =P): 
 
Writing ~ I’ve made amazing progress with my writing this year. Previously it was rare that I write – a short story, maybe two, a year and otherwise that’s about it. This year that has grown exponentially. Starting in around June, John (55555), Micah (Kakaru), and I, along with many others, started doing nightly “Write-Offs” where we’d write about a theme for 15 minutes and then comment on each other’s works. While we took a long break (like, 5 or 6 months =P), recently John and I have started doing them nightly again, and it’s amazing. They’re not my best writing, but just writing almost every night is something that I truly love and am thankful for.
 
Perhaps my biggest writing achievement this year was 30,000 words for NaNoWriMo (I meant to write an entry on that, but I guess I forgot…). No, I didn’t quite make it to the 50k, but considering how little I had been writing in previous years, and how this is the first year I’ve written (while also juggling the first semester of college), and how I’ve never written a single story longer than 1.5k, this has been a huge step for me. Writing this much in one month about one single story is just awesome. I’m still surprised I was able to do this much, and I look forward to getting the full 50k next year.
 
What I wrote was an espionage and psychological thriller. My old, 2010 short story “Hope” is actually the prologue for it. I definitely had a lot of fun writing and planning this, and I hope to finish it soon, as I’m only about half-way done with it. I’ll probably write another entry sometime just about this and other writing, but since I’m covering a lot in this entry I should probably leave it at that.
 
I’ve also written four poems this year – the first poems I have written since freshman year of high school. While they were for my creative writing class, I’m still fairly pleased with them and look forward to writing more poetry next semester, as I’ll be taken a poetry class (same professor, too, so that’s cool – I really liked him). Additionally, I’ve written several short stories in 2012, two of which are over 2,000 words – longer than any short story I’ve written before 2012 – as well as several over 1,000 words. These are both big steps for me as, again, I really hadn’t been writing much and it was hard for me to write long stories. Now this year I’ve written several. I may do another blog entry some time specifically about my character Detective Calvin Duster and the stories I have planned for him and the stories I have written.
 
But all in all, it’s been a great year writing-wise. I still haven’t written as much as I would have liked, but that’s what 2013 is for, and I’ve written more this year than I have in all other years combined, so for that, I am happy.

In total, let’s see. I’ve written roughly…7? short stories, half of a novel, parts of two different Serials, 4 poems, and over 50 flash fiction pieces. 2011? I didn’t write a single short story, apparently. I must have written something, but nothing that I thought was good enough to post online.  Wow, that’s bad.
 
Reading ~ I’ve written several blog entries on books in 2012, so I don’t think I need to do that again. I’ll just link to my Best Books of 2012 and leave it at that. This is the second year that I’ve read more than a-book-a-week, and I’ve read many great books. I hope to continue my book-a-week streak for 2013 as well.
 
Blogging ~ So this year I started blogging for the first time (off of BZP), mostly for my write-offs. It’s been a great experience and I’ve met some awesome people. I just plan on blogging even more this year.
 
Movies ~ Wow, so 2012 has been a great year for movies. I’ve watched more movies in theatre this year than quite possibly my whole life combined, haha – I don’t go to the theatre often. The Hunger Games was enjoyable, and it’s been fun ranting about it and the book to various people. Seeing the Avengers at BricksCascade with the awesome people there was really fun. Then of course The Dark Knight Rises over summer was completely amazing and one of my favorite movies. I saw The Bourne Legacy with a friend, and enjoyed that. I really like Jeremy Renner, and it wasn’t a bad sequel to the Bourne Trilogy. The last two movies I saw were The Hobbit and Les Miserables, both of which were completely amazing. I hope to write a review of and ramble for both, but for now I’ll just leave it at saying they were amazing.
 
TV Shows ~ I’ve discovered several new TV shows this year. Namely, Castle, The Walking Dead, and Justified. All are amazing shows, and Castle is definitely one of my top 5 all-time favorite shows and is amazing, and Katie and Aimee are awesome for nagging me enough to finally start watching it.
 
Music ~ I’ve found a variety of new music this year. Most importantly, ThePianoGuys. These guys are amazing, and definitely my favorite band/music group. Many thanks to Will (Tolkien) for introducing them to me. Then Katie (Ezorov) has shown me some awesome bands as well, name Eisley, the Hunger Games soundtrack, and Adele’s Skyfall song, among other things. I’ve started listening to more of the Beatles and finally got their #1 Hits CD, and I’ve also started listening to Billy Joel, thanks to Grant-Sud. And lastly, I’ve started listening to soundtracks a lot more this year – Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, etc., as well as other classical stuff like Handel’s Messiagh, etc. Really amazing stuff. I have of course listened to other things new-to-me this year, be these are all some of my favorite groups and songs, now.
 
Personal Life ~ With the help of the people mentioned below and other things in my life, I think I’ve definitely grown as a person this year, specifically in my Faith and beliefs. I can’t really get into the detail, but suffice to say I am extremely thankful for these people and the circumstances that allowed me to become, in my opinion, a better person. I still have a lot of work to do, and unfortunately I have also failed throughout the year many, and I’m not happy with many things that I have done, but I believe that I have gotten stronger and I hope to this year accomplish some personal, private goals that I was not able to accomplish last year, though I did make progress on them in 2012.
 
People ~ I’ve had some amazing relationships with people this past year. I’ve grown close to many, many people that I hadn’t been previously close with or as close with.
 
First and foremost, while we started talking since BrickCon 2011, Katie (Ezorov) and I didn’t really get super close until 2012. She is one of the most amazing people ever, and the best of friends one can have. Talking to her for literally hours a day is just really, really amazing, and she is a super awesome person. I just can’t put into words accurately how amazing she is and how amazing it is being so close to her.
 
Then there’s John (55555), who I’ve been friends with practically since I joined this site. But it seems like this year we became particularly close. Alike in so many ways, and just easy to talk to, he’s been an amazing friend this year and we’ve told each other practically everything. It’s been fun talking about our various struggles and wishes and people that we like, giving advice to each other and whatnot. He’s always there for me and is like a brother.
 
Micah (Kakaru), too, I feel like I’ve gotten a lot closer to this year, probably because I’ve gone to two conventions with him and talked to him a lot on Skype. Micah, as I’m sure is obvious, is an awesome guy (just ask Rob), always willing to talk and help out with things. I’ve also gotten closer to Jason (xccj), rooming with him at two different conventions and going on mini road trips to Seattle – it’s been really fun, and I love how it doesn’t matter if we disagree on politics or religion, we put those aside and just be friends while respecting each other. And everyone, at BCon and BCascade, I’ve had awesome times with and gotten closer to.
 
I think perhaps the biggest jumps I’ve made this year with people (previously rarely ever talking to them, and now talking to them very often and being good friends) would be Caleb (Cederak), Will (Tolkien), and Nate (GSR). I’ve always respected them a lot as writers (Nate less so, but that’s only because he wasn’t even active until like earlier this year, so I had no idea who he was until he entered those short story contests and then he immediately gained my respect =P). Caleb, especially, I’ve gotten really close to, and he’s helped me out a lot with things. Again I love how I can have practically completely opposite viewpoints on politics and religion with both Caleb and Nate, and we’re still great friends, because we don’t let that get in the way. Aimee (Aderia), too, I didn’t really know until this year, and now we’re great friends (and she’s also my Les Mis buddy that I can yell at about awesome Les Mis things any time I want. We’re also Les Mis t-shirt buddies!). And same with Kraggh – we’ve got a lot in common and we can both appreciate Les Mis for the awesomeness that it is.  
 
Although I went to school with her for 4 years, I didn’t really meet my friend Christina until early 2012. She really helped me become a better person and realize that there are other people out there like me (besides John [55555] =P), and since then I’ve grown so much in my Faith. Katie, too, has helped me immensely with my relationship with God, and she’s another person reminding me that there are people who share my views and beliefs. I’ve become a much better person this year, in terms of my beliefs, I think, mostly due to John, Katie, and Christina, and for that I will be forever grateful.
 
And I could seriously ramble on and on and on about all the amazing relationships I’ve had this year, and keep listing more and more people, but I’ll end with just mentioning the members of the Ambage Skype chats. Especially Nuile, who never gave up his writers club idea, and I’m so glad we were able to create the Ambage and how successful it’s been. Literally everyone there is amazing and are awesome friends, and I couldn’t be more grateful for how they have been so influential on my life.
 
 
 
And, well, that’s about it. I know I’ve probably rambled more than people care, but this was a fun entry to write. Here’s to 2013! *raises glass*

Just Voted

Posted by Velox , in Other, Life Nov 06 2012 · 447 views
Romney/Ryan, Election 2012 and 3 more...

Woke up, ate breakfast, went to my morning Econ class, did an hour workshop for my English class, Voted for Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan (and all the other things I could vote for -- I looked at each measure/candidate extensively last night before choosing which way I would vote). And I am wearing my Les Miserables T-shirt. A great day. ^_^



If you live in the US, and are legally able to, go vote! Go do it. Take advantage of this great Right we have and go vote. And don't just vote for the President/VP -- vote for your State and County Measures. Vote for the other office candidates. Those matter too, and you should take advantage of this amazing Right -- this great honor that we have as American citizens to vote. Use this ability, this Right, this honor. And go vote.

Love, Relationships and 3 more...
53 Things to do Before a First Kiss, by Kraggh

Honestly, that is one of the most awesome things I have read on BZPower. I've always thought that many relationships today are flawed, and the intentions that people have are...well, I guess, wrong. Now I'm not sure that I agree that all of these should be/need to be done before a first kiss, because I feel like that's something that you need to just kind of "let it come" when the time is right.

I don't think of this so much as a "to-do list" or "bucket list", but rather, just a list of amazingly cute couple things that would be simply awesome to do. Because I think the focus should be on each other, on doing things like this (pure, innocent things) together -- the relationship should be about your thoughts, intentions, and attitudes toward one another. I definitely think that all of these things should be done at some point (or, rather, that it would be incredibly awesome if they were done at some point), but again not in a way of checking off things as you do them, but just things to do that would keep the relationship pure and focused on each other. Basically I just feel like this is a list that would be incredibly awesome to do -- not that everything would, necessarily, be done, but that I wish all of these things could be done, even before a first kiss.

This really leads into my thoughts on love and true love -- things that I think are really, really misunderstood in society today. I mean, honestly, if you can do all of this, before even a kiss, that means something. I'm not saying this all needs to be done before a first kiss, but the intention should be there -- that you're not so much concerned about kissing, etc., but more just concerned about each other, and the purity of the relationship. I honestly can't think of any reason not to do any of these...if you're bad at singing (like I am), so what? That's just what makes this list so awesome, that a lot of these things you would be making a fool of yourself, but done with the right person and that's something extremely beautiful.

I've started to write a blog entry on true love and relationships, etc., probably at least half a dozen times now, but every time I do I end up straying into religion or something else not appropriate for BZPower. I still want to some time, though...who knows. But honestly, this is just an amazingly beautiful blog entry and awesome thing.

What are you doing at 11am?

Posted by Velox , in Other, Literature Sep 21 2012 · 343 views

If the answer is not "having second breakfast" then unfortunately your answer is wrong. Join in!! Take part! In honor of the 75th anniversary of the publication of the Hobbit, people are dedicating 11am to a "second breakfast" to celebrate Hobbit-style!

Happy Tolkien Week, everyone! And enjoy that food!

In Memoriam

Posted by Velox , in Other, Life Sep 11 2012 · 192 views
9/11, We Remember and 2 more...

~ :: Posted Image :: ~


9/11 has always been one of my favorite days of the year. Not because I am necessarily happy, but because of the attitude and the respect that people show (hopefully) on this day. It's a day of remembrance, a day of prayer, a day of memory, a day of sadness, a day of reflection, a day of respect, a day of honor, a day of fervor, a day of comforting, a day of charity, a day of love. A day to remind us of what happened, to honor those who suffered and died that day. A day to remind us to honor those that work each and every day, even to the point of sometimes giving up their lives, in order to try and protect the United States of America. This day reminds us that we must show love. To the families, to the people, to those who fight for freedom, to politicians who work to keep us safe even when we might disagree with them on other things, to those who give their lives, to those who cannot be with us today, to the people of the United States of America, and to the people of the world. Today is a day of love. It is also a day of remembrance, sadness, but also of hope and strength. Hope that a tragedy like this will never happen again. Strength that we are resolved, that nothing will break our spirit.

I'd like to thank everyone that has posted about this day, on BZPower or otherwise. I'd like to thank those that have said a prayer today in honor and remembrance of this. I believe this is one of the most important days of the year, because it is a day to remind us. Remind us of love, of those lost, of those fighting, of simply everyone. To remind us that peace is what we all need to strive for. I have seen many beautiful posts about today, and it honestly warms my heart to see that people care as I do. I'd like to end by sharing one of my favorite posts I have seen today:

Karen and I wanted to take a moment to honor those who lost their lives and whose lives were changed forever on September 11, 2001. We were all changed that day, but there are many who gave so much - many who paid the ultimate price - fighting for freedom on that day and the days that followed. We honor them today.

Eleven years later, we still vividly remember the heroism and courage of those who fought back against the terrorists. That day was a dark day for our country, but demonstrated what is great about America: Nothing can break the spirit of our great country.

Today we honor those who sacrificed on the planes, in the World Trade Center towers, in the Pentagon, on a field in Pennsylvania, our intelligence communities, and of course, the men and women in uniform who fight for our freedoms.

We will never forget.

-Rick Santorum



Please remember. Please do not forget. And may God Bless America.

Nook Tablet

Posted by Velox , in Other, Life, Literature Jul 29 2012 · 247 views

Heh, been a while.


Anyway, one of my birthday presents was a Nook Tablet. Gotta say, I'm definitely loving it. It's going to be very useful when I go to college this fall, as I'll be able to download a lot (most likely) of my textbooks, so I can just carry around my slick Nook instead of a bunch of books. Not to mention it's really awesome for if I ever want to read outside of my house -- waiting rooms, plane trips, car trips, etc. Of course, the problem is that I buy most of my books at a used bookstore where they're between $1-5, usually $1, and on the Nook, they're often more than that. =/ Oh well. I've already downloaded a couple of my favorite books, plus a handful of cheap and/or free ones.

Unfortunately, there are a couple of slight things about the Nook -- I can't seem to post on BZPower (I click on the add reply box, and the keyboard won't come up -- still looking into that, though), and there aren't Skype/AIM apps. I can, however, use websites for that, so it's fine, just not as neat. And a couple other things, but they're all minor. Otherwise, the Nook Tablet is extremely awesome. It will especially be handy as a calendar -- I need to keep better track of things that I need to do/appointments/etc. I have/etc., and this will definitely come in handy. Very much so.

But of course this is just going to make me add to my reading list. I seriously have so many books I want to read -- a lot of which I already have in normal book-format. I have nine books that I want to read "next," and then (literally) hundreds of others I want to read after that. Currently I'm re-reading the Hobbit, which is amazing (I don't remember much from the last time I read it, as it was a long time ago). Man, I am so excited for that movie! I'm not sure it'll be able to top TDKR, but I'm sure it'll come close.

I also got the Les Misérables 10th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack for my birthday, which is also very amazing (my personal favorite version, mostly because of Colm Wilkinson and Philip Quast). Speaking of music, I've started buying CDs again. I've never been that much of a music and/or CD person, but now that I have my license (oh yeah, I passed my test with flying colors after starting to drive for the firs time two weeks earlier. Forgot to mention that here. Driving is fun!) and a car that I can use whenever I want (and no iPod jack), I've started using CDs more. I recently bought Oh! Gravity and Vice Verses Deluxe Edition, by Switchfoot, which are both awesome, and that technically completes my Switchfoot collection because the only CD I'm missing is Hello Hurricane, but a live version of that comes with the VV Deluxe. The other bands I am trying to get CDs for are: Matt Maher, Owl City, The Fray, Lifehouse, Coldplay, Eisley, Rise Against (although I have 4 of their albums, just not in CD format), Yiruma, and Linkin Park, among others (those are my first priority). That bookstore I mentioned also sells a few CDs for $5 (where I got Oh!G), so I should be able to get a lot of those there.

All right, I think that's enough rambling for now. Look at that, I actually (very slightly) rambled for once. I should try to use this more, maybe.

So I Just Realized

...I don't use this blog much. =/ And my subtitle even says "ramblings" yet there aren't many of those here. Whoops. Mainly that's because the things I rant/ramble about most are either political or religious, so can't be posted here. But I'm sure I could find some things to rant about here.


Like today for example. Except it's not going to be much of a rant, as I'm far too excited. The Dark Knight Rises tomorrow!!! I honestly cannot even put into words how excited I am without being entirely newbish, so I shall refrain. But...yeah. 7PM showing tomorrow, IMAX. So psyched. Today I had a Batman marathon, watching Batman Begins and The Dark Knight with Katie (Ezorov), Micah (Kakaru), and Micah's girlfriend, Ashley. And then watching every trailer I could find (there's also like...7 or 8 TV trailers) of TDKR. Just all that is making me unable to contain my excitement. =P I should've bought tickets for tonight at midnight...

I'll probably do a longer life and/or ranting entry later, but for now...TDKR tomorrow! It is going to be an amazing, amazing film.
