Living at Orlando [Day 3]

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life Mar 08 2013 · 62 views

Day 3 of the trip.
 
We took an extended stop this afternoon in St. Augustine. We took a short tour around, and my brother and I spent an hour or so at this old fort thing taking pictures of stuff. Maybe if I ever get ahold of them I can share some on here.
 
Nothing much of interest, although disappointment - we have 3 days for 2 parks, nothing else planned, three days where we are doing nothing and have no lodgings scheduled, and then another three days of travelling. Color me disappointed - not even a water park.
 
2013, you find a way to make everything suck.
 
On the bright side of life, the place we're staying at is pretty nice and spacious. Just wish it was a little closer to Universal.

I EXPLORE THE UNIVERSE!

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZPower, Life, To Disney Mar 06 2013 · 83 views

I'm off to Florida today, and you're very welcome for the extended warning! I will be doing my best to get online each night, so you Mafia folk need not worry, and I will be writing up a series of journals with regards to my experiences at Universal, Legoland (pick a brick at last finally yesh), some chocolate factory, and anything else in Orlando.
 
Now I must teleport away and begin my adventures!

Breaking Windows and Other News

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life, My Little Pony Feb 18 2013 · 114 views

So I broke a window two nights ago, but nothing really happened except that we now have a window with some holes and a lot of cracks. It was actually an accident and I didn't get in trouble, so hurrah! Something actually went right for me in real life!
 
Because to be quite honest, 2013 sucks.
 
2012 was probably the greatest year of my life so far (which isn't saying much because I only remember like ten years or something if that), and it's not just that 2013 can't really measure up, but I dunno... something out there just doesn't want this year to turn out well for me. Every single thing I do seems to end up bad in some form, which isn't doing much for my procrastination troubles.
 
Also, I'd like to say that I really enjoyed the My Little Pony Season 3 finale, and I think there should be more musically oriented episodes.
 
That's all, folks.

The Math I Can Do: 52 Books

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life Feb 13 2013 · 108 views

1 Year = 52 Weeks + 52 Books
 
I decided to attempt the challenge for myself, and am about a third of the way through Tolkien's The Two Towers as we speak. The following novels that I haven't read are on my to-read list this year:
 
-Animal Farm
-The Return of the King (obviously)
-Ender's Game
-The Great Gatsby
[edit]-Les Miserables
 
Which isn't that many, so I'm here to ask you all to throw the 1001 books that you all must combined know of that I can't remember at this specific moment in time, and one by one, I will hunt them all down.
I believe I'm about 10-12 books done so far, which is good. I'm hoping to get a good head start by June, because I won't have time to read anything during the summer and then school in September promises to chain me to a wall and force feed me textbooks.
 
Speaking of school, I was just assigned the task of writing a novella in my Writer's Craft class. >:]
iBrow will win this. I always write my best when I'm forced to write, and I have a rather neat idea in mind. Perhaps I'll even let some of you read it, because I'll need proof readers of course.

Math Makes My Thinker Box Hurt

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life Feb 11 2013 · 88 views

If you get what I'm attempting to reference with that title, splendid!
 
Anyway, the last time I did a math class was over a year ago, and I was never splendid with it in the first place (English is almost literally where I need to dump all of my poor eggs), so it's tough already and we're only still reviewing that class!
 
Imma fail math at some point in my life. .__.

My Eyeballs Burn

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZPower, Life, Film/Shows, My Little Pony, Video Games Feb 10 2013 · 107 views

Now that you have been drawn in by that excellent title, let us move onto the matter at hand, which, while it did involve the use of my eyes, would be rather hard pressed to make them burn.
 
I'd just like to mention that for my occupation as an "eyebrow" (not gonna lie; it feels weird to type it correctly), I have a lot to say sometimes.
But then I remember that right now I have my display name on a character that refused to stop singing and talking when he'd been shot in the chest, so you know, it all works out.
 
What does this entry mean? Well to be honest, I don't know. An eyebrow just talks sometimes because it wishes to be heard. (Actually it's more because the eyebrow wishes to speak and does not care if he is heard or not).
 
What I need right now is some Team Fortress 2.
 
I'll get it in about... hmm... six, seven, maybe eight or nine months! Yeeaah. B-) 
It's cooool, folks.
 
Also I heard that a certain Twilight Sparkle was becoming a winged unicorn and that people were upset. I think that's cool too folks. B-) 
 
I'm outta here! There be other power business in the bionicle zone to attend to!
 
IBROOOOOW... AWAAAAAAAAY!

Gold Wii Remote

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life Jan 20 2013 · 151 views

Does anyone have one that they'd be willing to sell? The one that came in that Skyward Sword bundle pack. If you do, just comment below and I can shoot you a pm.
 
Or, alternatively, if anyone has seen one online that hasn't been put up for 200 dollars (I saw one going for 66, but didn't have time to go for it), that'd be cool too.

International Bacon

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life Dec 19 2012 · 104 views

The IB program. I'm 100% honest when I tell you I never fail to spell the second word incorrectly. And right now I'm too tired to look it up. >.<
Why I'm blogging about this I don't know, but I'm currently editing a ten minute video that isn't even regular course work for my religion teacher, and then I need to type up around 800 words by Friday in ways that must be done over several weeks.
 
Suffice it to say I've chopped internet time in half and I'm still falling behind. Ugh.
 
That said, enough breaks! I've already spent more than my designated 30 seconds on here!

It'll Kill the Computer

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Life, My Little Pony Nov 21 2012 · 111 views

But I'm going to attempt to download skype and steam onto the desktop this weekend so chatting can occur during the much-smaller amount of time I'm online.

That said, for those of you I've played TF2 or L4D2 with... don't expect that at all. If I so much as think about downloading either of them to this computer, it'll have the electronical equivalent of a heart attack.


Also, I watched "Too Many Pinkie Pies" today... I can give more thoughts tomorrow if you all want them, but suffice it to say for now that I considered it a faaaaar better episode than the premiere. I plan to watch that Trixie episode from Season 1 this weekend so that I can truly understand the depths of the awesome during the episode next week! =D

On more pony news (good grief), it's been a year since I first watched "Sonic Rainboom", give or take a few days. Thank you BZP for getting me into it and thanks to those who suggested Sonic Rainboom as the starting point.

Important Notice

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZPower, Video Games, Life, BZP Library Nov 15 2012 · 214 views

So it turns out I have a 70-something grade in a subject I absolutely need a 90-something in (English... bloody fantastic) so as of the moment this blog entry is posted, I am killing all internet ties for the time being until each of my marks are above an 85. What does this mean?

For the Ambage:
  • I will be unable to participate in any of the weekend write-offs until further notice. As a secondary note, do not expect me in the chats until this point arrives as well.
  • If I find the time I might still enter the flash fiction contests, but it is no guarantee.

For those of you that read my Comedies:
  • I will still update them. As of right now I am delaying the release of Vultraz Anniversary as I have yet to begin writing it, and I will not have time to write until further notice. However, thanks to my forward planning, when I remove my laptop from the equation I have a memory stick with all of the files regarding everything Tahu vs. Tahu, Dark Unto Days, and The Afterwords. Release will continue as normal.
  • The promos for The Afterwords will continue to be released. These too are on the memory stick.
  • I WILL still have the time necessary to run the Comedies Critics Club, as well as function as one of the leaders of the CF.
For those of you I do stuff with outside of BZP (Bzcraft, anything Steam):
  • I will be 100% gone from everything off of BZP until further notice. This means I will not be playing Minecraft, TF2, L4D2, GTA IV, Portal 2, etc. You will be unable to chat with me unless I activate steam on my desktop - and even if I do that, there will still be no games.
For those of you just here:
  • This blog will (most likely) be updated far less frequently. If you feel the need to talk to me about something for whatever odd reasons you have, send a pm.
Anyway, that's that. See you all in... whenever.
