Dagnam It, Marvel

Posted by Zatth , Oct 28 2014 · 125 views

I'm supposed to be writing an essay. How do I concentrate when you've announced movies like Black Panther and Captain Marvel (FINALLY some more representation on superhero movies), the extended trailer for Age of Ultron, the Agent Carter trailer, the rest of the movies, and the FREAKING INFINITY WARS TEASER?

More than one hype train...

NANOWRIMO WHADDUP

Posted by Zatth , Oct 27 2014 · 103 views

So yeah, I'll try and do it this year. I won when I was 16, but every year after that I've gotten sick every November, and never been able to win again.

UNTIL NOW (i hope).

I have an idea of the novel, and since our next tournament is in Peoria, Illinois, I will have a 14-hour drive to plan characters, plot, and whatnot. I've also been forcing myself to read a lot this past month (I've blazed through The Ocean At The End of the Lane, Carrie, On Writing, Fear No Evil, Hyperbole And A Half, The Ressurectionist, and hopefully The Best American Non Required Reading of 2014), as well as been writing a bit every day. Add me on NaNoWriMo, I'm Zatth (surprise surprise), and I want buddies to write alongside.

Oh, also life is good. Tournament season has been good, updated my major to become a Language Arts for Education teacher, been keeping up with Korra, Doctor Who, and AHS:Freakshow, and been doing better in class.

SO NANOWRIMO, HERE WE GO

NYCC and BIONICLE returning

Posted by Zatth , Oct 09 2014 · 194 views

The panel was wonderful. The BIONICE team has kept us fans in mind, but also prepared for the new fans and context. I agree with (pretty much) all of their decisions on BIONICLE 2015.

We also got to play and keep pieces from the sets. TLG is wonderful and I was so blessed to be invited by BZP and LEGO and to have this opportunity.

Got to chill with other BZPers, and met the remaining cast of TTV. They are awesome and wonderful and boss.

Finally, on the topic of Barnacles:
Whether you like that it's a reboot or not, whether you like the building style or not, you should know one thing:
Every time I passed by the BIONICLE booth, there were little children entranced by the video, awed by the Mask of Creation, amazed by the pictures and sets. That was us seven, ten, fourteen years ago. This is the new generation that will get to experience BIONICLE.

Oftentimes it's important for a reboot. If Doctor Who hadn't done it, we couldn't have gotten as much into it. If Star Trek hadn't had TNG, it would've been tough for the fans to get back into it. And hey, maybe BIONICLE 2015 is connected to the Mataverse, maybe not. The important back is that it's returned. But more importantly, the team is aware of us. They took the history of the sets, of the story, of the fans in consideration.
Criticizing BIONICLE 2015 is alright, criticism and discussion are crucial. But also remember that The LEGO Group is here for us. And this community is strong, y'all.

Get excited.

Pre-NYCC

Posted by Zatth , Oct 08 2014 · 80 views

Travel was ok, and am now staying at my big's apartment. So very excited for tomorrow, and can't thank TLG and BZP enough for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

NOW, ON TO TOMORROW! (Or today, technically).

Life, The Universe, and Everything.

Posted by Zatth , Oct 07 2014 · 105 views

Life's being life.

As in that things are happening. Got to finish The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell and loved it, I'm getting ready for NaNoWriMo (want to win it a second time), am DMing a D&D game with some friends, got to build a life-sized model of K9 and dress as Ten alongside it (here be an example),

am competing with the Forensics Team with two topics I love, and am getting so excited for NYCC and just to spend time in NYC with other BZPers and school/college friends.

In terms of some bad (or less than stellar stuff), I haven't been getting much sleep. I also have had some medical scares that aren't always fun. Have a bad grade in Science, and have to do Selective Withdrawal on Arabic 250 (don't get me wrong, I love the language, but over the past year and a half I haven't had the chance to really study and understand it, and I can't afford to have my GPA suffer).

But hopefully with one less class and more time to sleep/do homework, things will get back on track. There's good and bad patches in life, and I think I'm exiting a bad one and heading to a better one.

ANYWHO, this was me just rambling on. NOW I PREPARE FOR NYCC!

Also, I am making another thing: stay tuned, because in about two to three days you should be seeing a picture of it (you'll enjoy it much more if you're a Doctor Who/arts & crafts fan)

that can hide how much I loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie or the sets.
Here's my review of Starblaster Showdown, and props to you if you find all the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 references.
