Scientific Progress Goes "Boink"


Philmont Practice

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 14 2006 · 70 views
So, today I went on a practice hike for Philmont, BSA's section of the Rocky Mountains that is used for some serious hiking.

Today, we walked a bit with our big backpacks, getting the feel of them. We cooked some Ramen to get a feel for the camp stoves (even though we had our own lunches). We also set up our tents, because that's important to try out.

Nothing too exciting, but fun.

Anyone been to Philmont?

Ark Angel

My Life Is Awesome
Well, I just got a new Alex Rider book: Ark Angel. It's been out for a while, but I haven't been able to get it until now. But better news: I waited for a better deal, and got 25% off the hardcover!

I'm up to chapter 5, and Anthony Horowitz is doing a good job on keeping the suspense and all. Alex isn't working for MI6 now, but is out by himself with no help. (I bet MI6 will come in later)

So, I can't say much about the book yet, but the Alex Rider series is one of my favorites.

It all started out with Stormbreaker, and a short summary can be read in a previous blog about the movie.

Anime, Anime, Anime!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 13 2006 · 59 views
So I got some Manga today, and am so excited that I decided to use this opprotunity to introduce the new category of Anime. (Including Manga, J-pop, and Japanese culture)

The manga I got today were:
DNAngle 3
Full Metal Alchemist 1
Neon Genesis Evangelion 1

So I decided to start two series as well as get the next DNAngle I need.
I also like .Hack. That only has three manga to it (and then books).

On the topic of Anime, I am in my High School's Anime Club. We meet every week and usually watch Anime. We should have themed days for Manga, J-pop, and Cosplaying.

Even better news: I'm on the school newspaper and got to write an article on the club! I basically rocked the paper. (it's not out yet, but the club is really excited about it)

so, enjoy the new section. I'm off to read some Manga!

The End

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 13 2006 · 58 views
My Life Is Awesome
Lemony Snicket's 13th book of the Series of Unfortunate Events series came out today, on Friday the 13th. It's titled "The End"
My brother has it, and I'm going to have to figure out a way to read it when he isn't. Last year for book the 12th, I read a chapter a night when he was sleeping. That might work again this year....but he is very possessive/selfish.
Well, it's exciting it's out. Can't wait to read it!

Edit: Just to let anyone what wants to post, I haven't read it yet. Probabaly in about a month (hopefully sooner) I will have read it. (Basically a time period for people reading this in, say, a year. I would have read it by then)

Star Wars!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 13 2006 · 57 views
My Life Is Awesome
I am the founder of Star Wars Club at my high school! My friend and I created it last year and are about to have our first meeting next week!

We watch the movies/extras, discuss the books, play the video games, do trivia, jedi stuff. But a promissing thing we're looking at is having a Lightsaber duel! We plan on having the club in the gym that day with our lightsabers and have a duel! The only obstacle is getting permission to have something like this happen. I don't think the school will easily let us bring in lightsabers.

We also got an article in the school newspaper last year!

We are looking into getting club t-shirts as well. the front would say "Star Wars Club" and the back would say "May the Force be with you, O'Connell Jedi Knights" (the school is O'Connell and the mascot is Knights) It works perfectly!

May the Force Be with You

Holy Zamor! (232 Of Them!)

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 08 2006 · 50 views
So, I was able to get hold of those Zamor on display at Lego Stores. The life size zamor. Omi posted about them and had a good pic.
Omi's entry

Picture that, but 228 of them!
I'll be trading them pretty soon. I first need a trade topic, but I need to figure out what kanohi I want to trade, and I want to have a signed comic as well, which hasn't arrived from GregF yet. (It will come)
So, here is me burried in 228 life sized Zamor. (my brother and sister took 2 each, I had 232)

After seeing the comments (7!) I might want to add something: They were all free!!! Wait, let me do that again:
THEY WERE ALL FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, yeah.

My Life Is Awesome
So on friday, a movie came out that I really want to see. Sadly, I don't see any time in the next two months for me to see said movie.

What is this movie?

Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker

It is about this teenage spy (14 year old Alex Rider), hired by MI6 (Brittish FBI). It is based on Anthony Horowitz's book Stormbreaker, part of the Alex Rider Series.
Here, Alex has to figure out what is wrong with these super-fast computers that are being given away for free. He needs to sneak into the Stormbreaker main plant and snoom around. Cool gadgets, fun characters, adn action/suspence.

I don't know the rating, but my guess it PG. (I think I'd enjoy it more if it was PG13, more action)

So, anyone see the movie and/or read the book(s)?

Organized Sports

something my mom said last night, about me not being in any organized sports...

Since when is MOC building and competitions not an organized sport?

Free Lego Car!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 03 2006 · 55 views
So Brickmaster set came today!
I'll do a review on it later, just because I can. (It has, say, 20 pieces)
Anyway, I have a pic!

IPB Image

I'm calling it "Wipe-out Wizard" because whenever I send it zooming across the floor, it ends up flipping over.

It has some sweet pieces in it I'd love to use. (except in blue and yellow. Oh well, I might find a use)

I'm thinking about making a small space ship out of it, putting a magnetic brick on the bottom, and putting it in my locker.

How do you keep a BZPer in suspense?



Thank You

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 02 2006 · 62 views
Just a quick thank you to ~KDT~.

If you want to know what he did, look around in my blog a bit. Check it out. It's great. And then you'll find his post.

Thanks ~KDT~!

If you don't want to do that, then it was a good idea higlighting this. He did a little artistic work for me. Basically the Bionicle logo (or as I prefere to call it, "The Swirl") filled in all black. None of that silver or shaded stuff.

The Test

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Oct 02 2006 · 37 views
My Life Is Awesome
so, I decided to test out that "draft" button. So here is the test.

If you can read this draft, post so in the reply part. But I think that might not be possible, so post in the testing entry right below.


-CF patriot.gif

Yeah, that was the test. The draft button. (I was able to check out my blog not signed in, and this wasn't visible. So...Pretty much, I guess I can post anything, reminders, half blogs, such, and nobody will see it before it's done! So, yeah. You all were a great help!
