New Name Yay! New blog title!

Felt it was time for a change, and finally I think I found a name for this blog that I can be satisfied with. Heck one could even say there is the possibility for a theme.

Fikou everywhere!

Posted by Voxumo , in Mocs, Bionicle stuff Oct 21 2014 · 88 views

You know it is nice when you see yourself or something you did help inspire someone else. Recently I was googling fikou, for some reason I can't remember, and I came across this page. In it someone mentions how they went to Brickfair NE and they happened to see two of my Voya nui fikou mocs I sent through bzpower for the Le-wahi display. Apparently it inspired them enough to actually build their own.

Call me simple or something else, but it is just nice to see random people appreciate such a simple moc. I mean those two are nothing fancy.

So yeah, that made brightened my day when I saw that.

(And really, who doesn't love fikou? Their so bloody adorable)

Mask of Time?

Posted by Voxumo , in Bionicle stuff Oct 09 2014 · 135 views

I wonder how many people noticed the mask of time made an appearance in the trailer video lego released for bionicle 2015. When Makuta and Ekimo are shaking hands, in the upper left corner you will notice clouds that resemble a certain mask.

Voxumo in History

Posted by Voxumo , in Random stuff Sep 09 2014 · 81 views

You know, sometimes it can be scary, or it can be interesting, when you search your name or nicknames on the internet. Recently I decided I would search my nickname, Voxumo, using google and I came upon this.

You will notice i highlighted the two instances of the word voxumo. After trying to translate parts of it, it turned out to be Italian and the instances where voxumo is used is referring to a city or town. It is written as though author is telling someone about how a beheading took place in the city/town of voxumo.

The actual translation is something like this

Paolo di s anni, figlio di paolo saniuro, fu decapito nella citta di voxumo. Ma la forella Marta, come fi puo dire, che haueffe collo, e pur l'hebbe per effer recilo, di vn' anno decollata nella medefima citta di voxumo.
Translation
Paul's year-old son paolo saniuro, was beheaded in the town of voxumo. But Forella Marta, as fi can say that haueffe neck, and even the Hebbe for effer recilo, vn of 'year took off in the fame city voxumo.

Some words were apparently unable to be translated as you can tell, but still it is interesting to see the context in which it was used. The book in which I found this can be found here, and the actual title of the book, which was published in 1653 translates to The East India business subject to the Gospel. It should be noted that trying to find a place called Voxumo, turns up no results.

So all in all, it is neat what you discover about a name one the internet sometimes, afterall I had no idea about this when i started using the name Voxumo.

Vahi, Swert, Makuta, Bionicle
Makutafest Vahi Well I recently got Swert's Vahi in the mail last tuesday, and after some building I can say it is officially together. The Entry image shows it's comparison in size with the regular set vahi.

I want to say thanks to swert again for creating such an awesome piece of bionicle memorable, and being willing to part with it.

I did infact attempt to wear it, and now i remember why no images of myself exist, except this one now.

Anticipation

Bionifight, Voltex
You know recently I have been thinking about a certain game that was hosted a while ago, bionifight. I don't know what has spurred this sudden excitement but I am really looking forward to Voltex's sequel to his Award-winning Bionifight Ultimate game.

Perhaps I am just suffering from withdrawals?

Nostalgia: Digimon world

Posted by Voxumo , in Gaming, Life and many other things Jun 12 2014 · 107 views

Nostalgia: Digimon world It was sometime in 2001, I was 8 and recently gotten a new game for my Playstation; Digimon World. It would become the first game I was mad at.
 
While I sincerely enjoyed this game I will always remember the frustration I had with it. I could never bloody figure out to transform/evolve/etc my digimon's form. See apparently my mother bought the game pre-owned and it never came with it's instructions. Given that at the time we didn't have a computer I could just look it up on the web, nor would i likely had even known how to given I was only 8 and had never worked a computer ever. So alot of my game experience was spent having my digimon die and be reborn... again and again and again. Now somehow I was able to get it past the baby stage and to the rookie stage... but beyond that never and even then i am not really sure how i did it. I think my mind was assuming it was like pokemon where do a certain amount of stuff/training and it will evolve naturally. 
 
To this day I wish I could find the game and just play it so that i could finally know what the heck I was doing. I did spend alot of the game fishing though. I could fish up a storm! But ask me to battle.... well I was not your man.
 
OOH! And for the longest time I could not freakin remember the title of the game. Only today did i rediscover it by searching 'Digimon games for the playstation 1'. So at least now I can reference it instead of looking like a complete cool dude. Still look like a partial one but at least not a complete one.
 
So yeah that brought up some nostalgia. First bad experience with a video game.
 
*ponders* I still don't know what happened to that game

Clumsy Cat

Posted by Voxumo , in Life and many other things May 27 2014 · 194 views

Clumsy Cat So not more than 5 minutes ago my cat, gir, was laying on the edge of my bed sleeping peacefully. Apparently he decides to wake up and stretch while rolling over. Long story short he managed to roll right over the edge, though there was a brief moment where he clung to the sheet with wide eyes before falling to the ground... I have never laughed so hard at my cat. Then when he gets back up he still has this dazed kind of look on his face.
 
Mind you this the first time he has ever been that clumsy in four years

One Of My Favorite Poems

FIRE AND ICE
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I thinkI know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
And would suffice.
