Yesteryday was BZPower's 15th, and my 9th as a member :D

Crazy how time flies! I'm very grateful for BZPower and all you cool people and for the fact that, against all odds, Bionicle is still in my life all these years later -- all is as it should be ^_^

EVO 2016

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Jul 15 2016 · 0 views

Oops a semi-related tangent: I've never really gotten into fighting games, and I'm quite horrible at them, but my closest friends are all really good at them and have always played them when we hang out. I finally decided to buy myself a quality fightstick so I can learn to play and get as good as they are so I contribute to the fun and not just get passed the gamepad every now and then out of pity for a friendly but pathetic 30 second beatdown before they resumed their rounds. Honestly, fighting games are so incredibly complex and can teach so many useful skills and philosophies that go far beyond gaming, and that's really cool and with all the studying I've been doing I now have a much greater appreciation for them.

Anyways, the real point of this blog entry is:

My bestest friend in the whole wide world, who is the most proficient and passionate about fighting games in the group, flew in to Las Vegas for EVO and is going to be participating in tournaments for Smash, Pokken, and most importantly of all Street Fighter V. I'm so excited for him and I'm just so happy that my best friend is living his dream and following his heart and I really think he's got it in him to get far. Do you ever get so happy for your friends who you love so much that it's like the most important thing in the world? I'm so hyped up. SO IF YOU'RE GONNA BE WATCHING EVO, ROOT FOR MY BOY!!!! I mean you won't know who he is BUT AS LONG AS YOU REMEMBER THIS ENTRY THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH! JUST SEND OUT THOSE GOOD VIBES!

SO EXCITING!! Does anyone else love fighting games, or enjoy watching EVO, or LOVE THEIR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTING THEM IN THEIR PURSUITS? Please share your stories c:

It's been almost 10 years, I'm totally free to start quoting Portal again, yeah? :P

Little bit of a catch-up from basically all of 2016..

I've been super duper busy being a human bean out there in the world, schoolin' and workin', messing up terribly and learning from my mistakes but also trying new things and finding a lot of good out there in the world. I'm entering my final year of college, so I've begun working on my thesis film this summer! What a doozy this project is gonna be. Contrary to everything I thought I knew about myself, it ended up not being about robots, or space, or magical robots in space (though it was a pretty close call!).

I forget how strict the blog guidelines are about the whole no religion/politics on BZP rule, so I'll be very broad about it. I've been getting much more involved in my religious community, and being more active in LGBTQ+ spaces and events. Last week I officially came out about my LGBTQ+ identity to everyone on facebook, so that's been big and very liberating. Recent tragedies that we've all heard about over the past few days, weeks, and months have been very hard on me, and slowly pushing me to be more vocal and active for the people and things I love.

I just got back from a big 5-6 week trip, so I'm finally going to be able to get back into my groove at home and get things done in the coming months! Looking forward to catching up on all the 2016 Bionicle stuff that I've completely missed out on, and hopefully pick up a few sets! :D All I've been able to do this year is watch Journey to One on Netflix and briefly skim the BZP Front Page news every week, and quickly peek into the blogs every now and again. I'm happy to see this place hasn't fallen apart without me :P I'd really like to get back to making fan content for Bionicle again, it's been far too long; it's such a passionate thing for me, I don't know how I forget about it most of the time but get so excited when I remember it again. Tohkann's animations from many years ago really inspired me as a kid, and now he's at it again, so I'm going to work on trying to find the time to relax and make fun Bionicle stuff while working on my film c:

Hopefully I'll be active on BZP again and find the time to get back into the swing of things here. I've missed you all while I was away, I really have! Hope everyone is doing well! :)

What Happens Now

Posted by Pomegranate , Dec 14 2015 · 176 views

It's almost 2016, the 2016 bonkle sets will come out soon....

will all the 2015 sets be gone and impossible to get my hands on now? I only have three of the Toa and two Protectors, this is unacceptable but I don't have spare cash right this moment to get 'em (and I just detest having to order things online for some reason, it just bugs me; I much prefer to waltz into a store and find what I need and go through the whole process).

How does this stuff usually go? I'm mainly worried about the official LEGO Stores and their Bionicle 2015 stock when the 2016 sets pop in.

This is very important, I can't go another year without the full Toa team, it's criminal (although worst case scenario I'll get Kopaka, Pohatu, and Onua as Uniters and honestly that wouldn't be the worst compromise because they do look fantastic, but then they'll outshine the RGB Toa D: )

LEGO Doctor Who set!

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Dec 01 2015 · 217 views

It came out today and I am both impatient and unstoppable, so I took a detour between classes and scooped it up! Kinda shocked that it's like $70 USD, makes me wonder why they even considered how 'child-friendly' it is at such a price point, but honestly I've been out of touch with LEGO's price dynamics for like a decade so I have no idea what's reasonable anymore.

Can't wait to crack it open and build it, but I will say right away that the box is gorgeous and very nicely made. That's my, uh, review. Nice box. 10/10 :P

ALSO 'HEAVEN SENT' IS PROBABLY ONE OF IF NOT THE BEST EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO EVER OH MY GOD IM STILL NOT OVER IT I'VE WATCHED LIKE A DOZEN TIMES ALREADY AND IT STILL GIVES ME GOOSEBUMPS

EDIT: I can't believe I went through all the trouble I did before making this post to prepare a photo of the set and never actual put it in

LEGO Dimensions Expansions came out today...

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Nov 03 2015 · 195 views

And I am an impatient sucker, I went straight to the LEGO Store and picked this up :D

I don't even have the game yet, I'm just excited to get the figure c:

I'm gonna spring for Portal next for my brother.

Undergoing a difficult breakup right now so this was my little spirit lifting treat for myself.

New York Comic Con / Oh hey there

Posted by Pomegranate , Sep 19 2015 · 247 views

So far I only have Rebecca Sugar to look forward to, and that's gonna be super exciting! But what else is happening?

Does anyone know if LEGO has any plans to show up at this one? Perhaps something Bionicle will be involved? It was truly the highlight of NYCC for me last year, I think, so it's gonna feel really empty without Bionicle this time 'round.


Also if anyone else is going let me know!! :D

ALSO! Whoops, looks like I more or less vanished from BZP for the last few months or so. My bad! Busy, busy, busy. Traveled all up the US West Coast, was a camp counselor, got busy with school and work, lots of stuff going on. I'm gonna try to pop in more often, I did check up on the blogs regularly even if I wasn't logging in ^^

More like Happy Birthday BZ-Me

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! Jul 20 2015 · 170 views

14 years of BZP! And coincidentally, today makes the 8th anniversary of my registration! :D

I'm in awe that this is technically the second year I've been on BZP for more than half its life. Y'all are just great, it's really incredible looking back on all those years of Bionicle and BZPower and finding myself sitting here today, Bionicle alive and well again and BZPower still here for all of us. Life is really wonderful sometimes. Y'all are wonderful too <3

I'm a big kid now

Posted by Pomegranate , in 2014 Onwards! May 04 2015 · 264 views

In the last week I have: printed business cards, gone to a big networking event to hand out those business cards, got a short but exciting summer job/glorified volunteer opportunity through the event, made a website and portfolio and social networking/media accounts (all with my full name in the urls! I'm so glad my name is ridiculous), made a demo reel, wrote up a resume, sent that resume with a cover letter to an internship I might get because it turns out I have connections there, aaaaaaand seemingly passed all my finals and officially finished my second year of college.

Now I can finally play with plastic construction toys :P
