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.

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 Voltex , in Life, My Little Pony Nov 21 2012 · 113 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 Voltex , in BZPower, Video Games, Life, BZP Library Nov 15 2012 · 223 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.

Tahu vs. Tahu 2

SHOCKER:

it's not going to be called Tahu vs. Tahu 2

because...

That is a stupid title

and also because...

It has nothing to do with the comedy that is being written

But I mean, why am I saying this here? Not like you people listen to stuff I say. YOU'RE ALL LYING TO ME, WHYYYYYY?! :U

A Bit of Trivia About Me

Posted by Voltex , in Life Sep 27 2012 · 128 views

If you go on Google and search "ibrowvoltex", every single result on the first page is me! :D

That said, there's some stupid google site that I didn't even know they gave me. Stupid Google connected-ness. >.>

EDITEDITEDIT

I looked through the total of four pages - aside from only two results that were in some asian dialect I couldn't understand, every single result was relating to me (thanks Zakaro, your banner turned up several times). Guess I'm 100% unique on the internet! Woot woot!

Those of You With the Photoshop Skills

Posted by Voltex , in Life Sep 21 2012 · 127 views

If you are having them and willing to aid me in creating a logo, could you comment here/pm me if you want to help?
Mostly I just need you to crop something and turn it mostly transparent, two things I am horrendous at. And by horrendous, I mean I can't crop Bionicle or Hero Factory because I am just terrible that way.

Photoshop CS6

Posted by Voltex , in Life Sep 15 2012 · 83 views

I just downloaded the 30 day trial last night, to see if I like it more than Photoshop Elements (sort of guaranteed already, considering you can open layer sets).

Question is: will I want to upgrade to CS6 permanently once the month is up?

Embarrassing Is When...

Posted by Voltex , in Life Aug 30 2012 · 152 views

You're out doing a paper route, having a great time because it's early evening and just beginning to get dark, the weather is wonderful, and you know you'll be getting rid of the route in two weeks.

Then some eleven or twelve year old girl takes one good look at you, decides you're cute, and decides to follow you for 20 minutes, eventually asking you out to some club or something that you've never heard of after living in this town for three years.

iBrow On: Voltex

Posted by Voltex , in Life, BZPower Aug 27 2012 · 132 views

I've been asked where "Voltex" came from. What it is, how I came up with it, why do I use it, and so forth. So here's a short blog entry detailing it.

I was recently away for a month at a Leader in Training program at a camp I go to. At this camp, each LIT and staff member is given a special "camp name", one that nobody has ever -or will ever- have. It has to do with legacy, and leaving your mark. That said, "Voltex" is mine.

I am a storyteller, as should be evident by my rank title. I also ran a session on storytelling while I was there, and so they related me to Shakespeare. From Shakespeare they went to Benvolio from Romeo & Juliet, which I shortened to Volio. However, Volio doesn't quite have the ring to it I was looking for.

I worked with some friends, shifting the letters around, and came to Vortex. It wasa perfect, but unfortunately someone had already taken the name. I went cheap and shortened it to Tex, working in a Red vs. Blue reference, but to no avail- Tex was taken as well.

I pondered for a day and then decided to combine Volio and Vortex- that's how I got Voltex.

And there you have it.
