BOM Podcast

Posted by Zatth , Jan 06 2015 · 68 views

So if you've been following the BIONICLE: ANP, you might know that, eventually, some other kind of project would spring out of that.

SO HEY THERE'S A PODCAST NOW!
Here/s the link:


I believe that after this, I now have to proceed with my BIONICLE Parody Songs EP, including tracks like "Do You Want To Build a Boxor?", "The Plan", and everyone's favourite, "Some Story That I Used To Know"

i may or may not be joking about all of the above

If You Ever Want To Talk

Posted by Zatth , Dec 30 2014 · 211 views

I admit I'm very privileged. I admit I cannot fully empathize with a lot of you because we haven't had the same life experiences. I know I'm some online person hiding behind a Kanohi Zatth.

But I am here for you. I'm sure everyone else on this site is, but I just want to put it in writing.

There is too much oppression, hatred, and sadness in this world, and nobody deserves that. As an immigrant (and third world kid), chronically ill, mentally depressed, demiromantic 19 year old, I know I can't empathize with everything, but I will listen to anything and everything you ever want to say or think about. I've been trying to change my ways and learn to be a more toleran and open person, and if nothing else, your talking to me about things will open up my eyes and make me want to make a bigger change.

Talking to me might not do much. Whether it's because you've never met me, or don't trust me, I totally get that. But this is, more than anything, an open invitation to talk with me about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. It can be silly, it can be nonsensical, it can be looking for someone to vent to and not want or wait for an answer.

Just remember that there are always those who will love you and will accept who you are, in any and all facets. This is an open invitation to PM me about anything at any time. Y'all are loved, and y'all matter to me.

A Mystery Explored - Chapter 4

I'm shocked and happy that I've been able to stick with this for so long :)

Anywho, here's the new chapter! Again, any comments and criticisms are appreciated and welcome

The Sandman

Posted by Zatth , Dec 24 2014 · 117 views

I'm a big Neil Gaiman fan. But more than anything, I'm a HUGE Sandman fan. I think it revolutionized the graphic novel scene. I credit it with getting me back into an interest in mythology and religion in modern-day literature. I think Dream is such a cool character, and one day that will be my next costume/cosplay.

So naturally I wanted to pay homage.

Two years ago I brought to BrickFair this little fella (and the mosaic):

As soon as that weekend was over, I viciously dismantled the mosaic and got to work on the new one. I've been going at it during this break, and this is how it looks like at the moment:

I hope to have it finished by the time BrickFair VA 2015 rolls around.

Thoughts? Comments? Criticisms? Any are welcome!

LEGOLAND AND HARRY POTTER WHAAAAAAAA

Posted by Zatth , Dec 21 2014 · 132 views

I was hospitalized at NIH a week ago, and while there my mom told me she was thinking of having us go on a vacation as a family to some theme parks in Florida. I was surprised, but super excited.

A week later, and it looks like we're going to Legoland and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Should be fun. Stuck in a car with my sister for 14 hrs might be tough, but I WILL SURVIVE. I'm scared because we're visiting Legoland on the 31st, and I dunno if they'll have Bonkles in stock then. Because it would be unreal to buy my first Gen 2 BIONICLE from Legoland.

I'm excited about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter after reading the entire series for the first time in May (why, you ask? For a class. Yeah, my classes are THAT cool). Since I know what house I'm in I feel more pumped to go and shell out money on unnecessary things. BECAUSE I'M AN ADULT.

Any of y'all who have gone or live there have any tips? Preferably for Harry Potter since we've been to Legoland in California.

The Colbert Report

Posted by Zatth , Dec 19 2014 · 96 views

First off, don't think I'm not grieving about Korra being over, I just haven't seen it yet (I don't want to cry twice in one night).

ANYWHO, I just watched The Colbert Report finale. There were a lot of feels. And don't worry, no political message in this blag entry.

When I moved here five years ago, I came from Venezuela. For those who don't know, during the time that I lived there (2000-2009) I lived through a coup, the Venezuelan government threatening my home country, lack of basic food and medical needs, many of my friends being assaulted and almost murdered. Colombia wasn't much better. Even though I only lived in Colombia for three years, my parents lived through three political candidates being murdered, the newspaper where they both worked being bombed to nothing, and more. My uncle was murdered, my grandfather lost all his land leaving my mom's family almost penniless when she was in her teens. A car exploded a block from where my parents had parked their car. Had they been a block closer to the car, I would've been left an orphan at age three.

What did all this have in common? Not much freedom of speech. In Colombia, my parents being journalists meant that they could be targeted at any moment if they were to delve into investigative journalism. In Venezuela, I saw news stations being brought down, religious and secular places vandalized, and became paranoid of leaving my own house. Just this February, I spend a week not knowing if my friends had died protesting in the riots because the media in Venezuela didn't cover any of what was happening.

Why do I mention all this? I want y'all to be thankful. I have been amazed and grateful to live in a country where someone like Stephen Colbert can have a humorous political show and say things and not be killed or shut down or be forced to flee. I am amazed that a man can have a political caricature for nine years, and can end his show when he wants to.

We had a person like that in Colombia. Jaime Garzón was a comedian who basically had his own Daily Show/Colbert Report hybrid for almost a decade. His life was ended in 1999 by paramilitary forces, not just because he didn't shy away from the truth, but because he engaged in humanitarian efforts. I was four when my parents brought me to the front of our building. I remember waving a small white handkerchief at a black car that passed by the streets of Bogotá that day.

All I'm saying here is to think about that. The freedom of speech that y'all have. That a satirist can end his show by his own will, not by the bullet of an assassin. Don't take these things for granted, because they matter.

With that, I'm off to watch the Korra season finale and cry again.

We're Toast

Posted by Zatth , Dec 12 2014 · 120 views

So a friend of mine who knows very well about my love for puns decided to share a picture of some bread-related puns on my Facebook wall.

Needless to say, another pun-loving friend of mine engaged me in the comments below.

We were toast:
Pablo: 'll have to punder on these jokes, because I was not bread to understand them
Richard: I'm sure that you'll rise to the occasion Pablo.
Pablo: Will I, dough?
Richard: I'm sure you are. You're not one to loaf around.
Pablo: All I'm getting from this is that I knead to get a life
Richard: At the very yeast, you should keep making these puns. I can tell you're pretty good; there isn't a half-baked one among them.
Pablo: Richard, you ain't seen muffin yet.
Richard: I've had way worse, this is a cake walk.
Pablo: Whatever happens, this conversation will be in'grain'ed in my memory for years to come.
Richard: That's for sure, these aren't some simple cookie cutter jokes we're throwing around here.
Pablo: I dunno, it feels like we've spread ourselves too thin. I hope we baguette more of these puns, or else we're toast.
Richard: I don't think we're digging too deep, we've only just scratched the crust!
Pablo: So you're saying we've got puns in a'bun'dance?
Richard: Maybe not that far, but we've got plenty before we need to start scrabbling for crumbs.
Pablo: Then let's keep doughing this!
Richard: I don't know, I don't feel like I'm baking any records here. I may want to call it a night.
Pablo: Yeah, we butter shut this down
Richard: See you next time.
Pablo: ...
And, scene!
