New Cd!–nami Tamaki!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 20 2006 · 34 views
My Life Is Awesome
So, I got a new CD today. The artist is Nami Tamaki, CD title Greeting. The CD is great. One of the best CD’s I’ve purchased. Here, I’ll post some lyrics:

Song 1: Eternal Voices
Sukitooru soraeto sotto teo nobashinagara
Kizutsuita Kimochi ima tokasukara
Sukoshizutsu jikanga kitto tsutsunde kureruyo
Kono koeo sarau yooni uketotte


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Heh, heh, got you, didn’t I? You’re going: Huh, what the hec is CF posting?
A: Well, why don’t you google her? Or read on. Or both.
Nami Tamaki is a Japanese singer. J-pop, as the music is called. I’m in Anime club at my school (DJO), and am really getting into this stuff. Anime, Manga, J-pop. This is my first J-pop CD, but I just might get some more. But at a club meeting we listened to J-pop and I really liked it. I finally was able to get a CD, and this is really good. The problem was that some CDs cost $20 and there are only 5 songs on it. This was $17 and had 13 songs–a full CD!

So, check out some J-pop and see what you think
Or perhaps you already have a bunch of J-pop. Well, your suggestions are always appreciated and welcome. I would love to find another great artist. But I’m leaning toward J-pop and not J-rock.

Blue Squirrel Attack!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 13 2006 · 82 views
My Life Is Awesome
So, you're having fun in your word-based RPG, discussing how to get around this whatever you're doing at the time, and suddenly a noob comes out of nowhere and types:

Blue Squirrel Attack!

Chaos! You grab for your sword as everyone else does too to deflect this swarm of thousands of thousands of blue squirrels.
And then the RPG master comes in and deletes and bans the new member.
-------------------------------------
I recently heard about this, and it sounds hilarious. Apparently, a scout in my Boy Scout troop (875) started this type-based RPG (Roachy) and my troop is having a blast with it. Then one day, someone posts the "Blue Squirrel Attack" and hilarity and chaos ensues. Someone started this, and it's gone to other RPG's as well. Apparently it's anoying and can get you banned from the RPG. But to me, a non RPGer, it sounds really funny.

Anyone heard of this?

Today

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 12 2006 · 37 views
My Life Is Awesome
Wow, this is an uninteresting day. Maybe it'd be more interesting if I knew of one person (other than omi) that was going to Brickfest. Brickfest...you know, since you've been reading my blog everyday you'll know how excited I am and comitted to it I am. Brickfest, the Washington DC Lego convention going on the last weekend in August. Brickfest, where there will be tons of MOCs shown off of various themes, my favorites being Space, StarWars, Bionicle, Mecha, Darkroom...

so, read a couple of entries from before to get more details.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

So nothing really happening today. I mowed a lawn, played Chip's Challenge on my computer, and got a haircut.
The highlight of my day is that I found out I'll get the chance to hang out with my two best friends tonight: Lewa and Tahu. (J/K) tongue.gif OK, they aren't even built, I'll be hanging out with two real people. I borrowed Final Fantacy VII: Advent Children yesterday from Blockbuster, so I'll be bringing that along. It's an awsome Anime movie that everyone should see (but it is PG-13).

I'm thinking about my BBCC 38 entry (scroll down). If it doesn't get into the finals, then I'll change the white to green, give him hands/fists, a awsome staff, perhaps a Kanohi, and bring him to Brickfest for display. Hehe, loophole, even if I don't win, he still goes to Brickfest!

And on a final note, please make a comment about the quote of the day. Whether you like it or not, and maybe give a couple you'd like to see appear someday.

Well, I'm doing really well in the polls. 1 vote! Yay!
I'm up against a nice looking dragon. Sadly the Poll or his entry pic don't say what he does. I'm guessing flap his wings, so I think my pincers can just snap them off of him and that will be the end of that.

vote for entry one here!
please



oh, well, I can handle it, being 16 and all, I understand it. But I finally enter something good in my 2nd BBC and I don't even get too high.

Well, look at it this way. There is still a chance that it can get to Brickfest! All I have to do is bring it for display! Haha, loophole, even if it isn't up for running.

So, Vote for Ambidextrous!

Bbcc#38: Ambidextrous

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 10 2006 · 41 views
LEGO
Ambidextrous: Adjective: Able to use the left and right hands equally well

this MOC is named so because he can use each leg equally well. Basically he doesn't have a front or back, left of right of his waist. He doesn't need to turn his legs, just his free-turning body and walk off in that direction.
His function is that his claws snap together when "trigger" is pulled. (and he can use each claw equally well)

So, here he is!

Re-pimp'd

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 09 2006 · 45 views
LEGO
so I've redone/repimp'd my blog. It's stayin like this and I hope ya like it, yo!
And scroll down a bit. There's a special vending maching just waiting for your money.
So, I hope you'll like it, and I hope you stick around a while before going to the other sites I've linked.
And thank you to Omi and Tohru for their ideas with their blogs. They are inspriations for this.

And on another note, here's another Brickfest Promo. Please go. It's a blast. Scroll down to get some details. Or click on the Lego button. Either way, it's awsome; and the MOCs that Lego builders make from all over the country. Adults. And these are pretty awsome cause some of them work for Lego.
Go to Brickshelf.com to figure it all out. Infact, if you've been wanting a vacation to Washington, DC, now's the time to go! (or rather brickfest weekend)

so, yeah, later.

check it out. Links to places of mine in my blog or anywhere else. perhaps I'll put up a theme later, but I like it this way.
And I'm even advertising for some of my favorite blogs. be sure to check them out once you're through with mine. Omi and T-Hybrid did a pretty good job on their stuff. And I just like their blogs. And I met Chriskopaka back when he was Bionicle Master the Mighty.
Credit goes to Omi, T-H and anyone else with them for starting this. (And T-H put in a bouncer). So I hope you all can get into this for a customized blog!

cheers!

Pimpin' My Blog

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 02 2006 · 33 views
LEGO
So I'm online today doing my normal BZP stuff and I decide I'll take Omicron's challenge to pimp my blog.
So to kill time waiting for the web pages to load up (stupid dial up) I start to make banners for this.
I'll be putting up pictures up for different links. Each pic will lead somewhere special, either in the blog or on the web.

Here is one banner I made for the Lego catagory of my blog:
IPB Image

so the challenge is to make your blog unique, with a style that isn't normal.
And, yes, this seems to be a new fad.

-CF patriot.gif

PS: If anyone is wondering why it isnt' pimp'd yet, it's because I'm still making banners.

Big Zamor; Matoro; Brutaka!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jul 28 2006 · 29 views
LEGO
So, I went to the Lego store yesterday. The one near me, most likely not you. It is in Tyson’s Corner Center Mall, Virginia, USA, Milky Way Galaxy, this universe. PM me if you live close by.

There I bought Toa Matoro, Brutaka, some Magnetic bricks, a Darth Vader Keychain, some peice bags, and some magnetic bricks. The two Bionicle sets are totally awesome! Perhaps I’ll post my own review on them...

So, at the Lego store, there is a bunch of Bionicle displays. And around all of these are big glass cases of zamor spheres. But not the little green plastic marbles, but big, four inch diameter foam, plastic coated balls, in green and dark green. So I immediately start juggling them, then talk to the guy at the counter:
Me: how much they are
Him: They aren’t for sale
Me: then why do you have so many?
*I forgot to mention there were more than 350 of these*
Him: that’s what Lego said. We can’t really sell them.
Me: blink.gif But you have so many!
Him: Sorry
Me: You could probably sell them for about $2.50 each!
Him: yeah.
Me: And Lego needs the money.
Him: well...

After that we get into a conversation about Lego’s money. Apparently they aren’t doing so bad financially wise. And Bionicle isn’t the biggest seller, it’s pretty much rounded out with everything.

Oh, and more good news: Lego has extended their contract with Star Wars! It was going to expire in 2007, but now it's still going 'til at least 2011! I hope they make some new sets, and maybe some stuff from the books. Lego would do fine with an expanded universe series.

Also, he is a member of WAMALUG, (WAshington Metro Area Lego User’s Group). He had a display of his latest work, just for the Lego store. It’s this factory, empty, (I guess night) and there is this janitor cleaning up. Behind him is this orange spider thing creeping up from under the grates. Really funny, but I didn’t bring a camera.

We also get into a conversation about Brickfest, and he’s going to be there. Yay! Two years ago I saw his work of this cathedral. But what made this church stand out was that there were statues/saints lining it, like a real cathedral. But these saints were all grey minifigs! Pants, shirt, arms, hands, head, headgear, everything. Some had beards like the Dumbledor and other wizards. Some had spears. But remember: They were all grey!

So, my experience was great there today. And I wore my BZPower shirt I made just an hour before. I’m going to wear it to BF this year. Of course I’ll post pictures after my vacation this weekend.

Brickfest 2006

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jul 26 2006 · 50 views
LEGO
Yay! I'm going to Brickfest 2006!

I'm entering in THIS MOC, to start. I'm working towards putting in my Fused Piraka, and a minifig sized lawn mower.

Anyway, Brickfest is a big event that happens in Virginia, USA, Earth, Milky Way Galaxy; August 25, 26, 27, standard Earth timing. This year it is at the Sheraton Premier Hotel in Tysons Virginia. Visiting hours are on Saturday (26) and Sunday (27) from 12-4, PM. $10 for both days, $7 for one day. There is a ton of rooms for every theme. The Bionicle Room is organized this year by BZP's Omicron! It should be great. But that's not all. There is a Mecha room, Space, Star Wars, Town, Train, Castle, Mindstrom, FLL, and the newest: Dark Room.

The Dark Room is a room that has its lights out. Then black lights are fitted in. The MOCs on display are planned for this, and contain transparent/luscent peices. This makes the MOCs glow eerily. This years theme is water/ocean/sea, etc...

So, I hope to see you there!

Happy Birthday Hapori Tohu!

Ah, BZPower. Home sweet home. My home in my home, or at school or a friend's house or the library.
My point is, we all love it here. And because of that love, BZP is still up and running today. I love it enough to renew my premier membership each year. And I keep my posts spam-free, and be nice to everybody. I also see others doing the same.
In hopes that nonpremiers are reading this,
QUOTE
I want you to become premier today!

[Hapori Tohu/Uncle Sam pointing finger at you]

Aparently BZP has it's history right after Bionicle started. The original site merged with others in the years to follow. And the result is what we have today.

I came to BZPower over 3 years ago. It was totally awsome.
Now, here I am blogging away. All because of BZP

Because of BZP, I have learned to type better, write better, MOC better, surf the web better, and more. It is such an awesome place. Without BZP, either I would be going crazy about not knowing all I know now about Bionicle and upcoming info, I might have lost my interset in Lego. And then where would I be? This is pretty much my life.

I've also met other BZPers:
RC-1136
BionicleMasterTheMighty
Kofan
Skwidjm
Omicron
Binkmeiser
TotalNut
BionicleRex

So, here's to another great year of Bionicle and BZPower

Rodney: Day 6

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jul 14 2006 · 47 views
Camping/Outdoors
Friday

Sailing: Great sailing weather today! Had a blast, stayed warm, and made it to lunch on time!
The rest of that day was in preparing for that night campfire's skit: The Sledg-O-Matic!

Sledge-O-Matic:
basicly, I'm the annoncer that gets the crowd all rialed up, and a stronger guy of the troop slams down this big wooden hammer (about 10 inches in radius diameter) onto various foods. More on this later, I plan to have another blog on this. But it was really fun, and my shirt got sooo messy with tomato guts, slaw dressing, and watermelon!

Another good skit:
narrator describes a bird walking around in its habitat: The Medicrin. then a hunter appears, takes aim, fires, and...The medicrin dodges it!
The hunter goes back home for the night.
Next morning, he comes back with a bazooka. He tries it out on a rabit, the first thing he sees. It doesn't hit. So the hunter goes home after not seeing the Medicrin.
The next morning, he comes back, sees the Medicrin, and fires. The Medicrin does some crazy Matrix move and dodges the bazookas missile. The hunter goes home.
The hunter then goes to Loon-Depot, and uses the loon as bait. He digs a hole, places the loon inside of it, and hides behind the bushes. The medicrin come buy, but doesn't go for the bait, because it doesn't quite like the loon by itself. The hunter goes back home, with only the loon.
Then the hunter remembers something his old hunting partner told him "A loon with sugar..." So the Hunter stuff the loon with sugar, because everybody likes sugar, and stuffs some more, and stuffs some more, until that loon was full.
The next morning, the hunter places the loon, with sugar, in the hole. The Medicrin comes buy, jumps in the hole, and enjoys the sugar loon. The hunter goes to the hole, and (using the sledge-o-matic he borrowed from my skit) knocks out the Medicrin. The hunter goes home happy with the Medicrin.

The moral of the story is this: A loon full of sugar helps the Medicrin go down


Up next: The Sledge-O-Matic!

Rodney: Day 5

Thursday

Sailing: We actually got out into the water today, and sailed! The only problem was that we sailed with the wind to start, so we had a bit of trouble getting back because we had to go against the wind. Our boat ended up getting filled with water somehow, and we basically couldn’t get back. So...we got towed back via motor boat!
And we get back to shore about 15 minutes after program was scheduled to end, then we have to help others get their boats back on shore, (hey, a Scout is Helpful!). By now, we are all freezing blue (literally) because we’re all wet and it’s a cold day. We finally get to start heading back to main camp, and lunch has already started. Luckily, the mess hall is in line with the sailing base, so we just have to follow the road. I get right before seconds start to be announced. I start to eat my ham and cheese sandwich, and realize that some warm soup would help heat me up. I go into the kitchen to get some, and they are all out. So I go back, eat up, and figure I’m warming up nicely already.

Campwide games were rescheduled to Tuesday because of the Fourth, so it’s free time! And what do I do in that free time? I do the Mile Swim! Starting right after dinner, we all rush up to the pool to be the first in line. Not that it matters. About an hour later, I’m out, and have to go to the bathroom really bad. Relieved, I then head off with my brother to the trading post to get a slice of pizza. But, the trading post is closed. This is usually to encourage people to go to campwide games, and they didn’t change the timing because of the move. Ah, well, there might be some food back in camp. (Infact, there was!)

There was a campfire for my troop that night, and probably the best part was when someone read out of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Anyone heard of it? Anyway, it’s about this Flying Spaghetti Monster, or FSM for short, who created the world and is basically a god. He made a firmament, because he was tired from flying and he couldn’t tread water for long. But he decided that “firmament” didn’t sound to good, and when pirates say “firmament ho” didn’t sound too good either. So he renamed it “land.” In this land he made a volcano that spewed forth beer. He took a sip and went to bed. The next morning, he woke up with a hangover, and made some more land forgetting yesterday’s actions. And I’ll leave it at that and let you go to your library and find out the hilarity for yourself.

Rodney: Days 3&4

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jul 12 2006 · 46 views
Camping/Outdoors
On Tuesday, nothing big in sailing. There wasn’t any wind, so we couldn’t get out.
The afternoon wasn’t much either, just hanging around camp.

After lunch and dinner, the camp staff circle the dinning hall and we all sing a song. Sometimes they are fun, or not.
So this day, we sung “Old McDonald Had a Farm.” 1 third of the hall were the pigs, one third the cows, and one third (my third) the ducks. So, we start off, on animal at a time, chorus, then another animal and the other one, chorus, and then the ducks, then the other animals. But, the fun thing about doing this at camp with a bunch of boys is that it gets really competitive. People stand on chairs or sit on people’s shoulders and everybody is yelling, trying to be louder than the others. So on the second go-round, my group started shouting “quack, quack” after we sung, the same chanting for the Mighty Ducks movies. In the end, we were declared the winners and were told we cold leave first!

And since it was the Fourth of July on Tuesday, we had big campwide games. Tug-of-wars, relay races, getting soaked with water balloons. The best part was when the camp filled up, say, eight rain gutters with icecream, handed out spoons, and said “have at it!”

Wednesday
Low winds again today, so nothing in sailing. But that wasn’t the down side of the day. The down side was having to get up early to take the first-years showering. And not having to take the first-years showering either. The getting up early part.
And it rained alot today.

At summer camp, this is the time when my troop elects a new Senior Patrol Leader–the leader of our troop. I was up for the running, and almost won. I got second place last year, I later learned, and thought I had it in the bag for this year. But I lost. I was doing well though, answering all the questions with real feeling, saying what I thought they wanted to hear (J/K).
But the guy that won made me his AssistantSPL.

And that was wednesday at Camp Rodney
