Happy Birthday, Little Bro.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Aug 18 2008 · 19 views
Life
Hi, friends. As the entry title say, today is my little brother's birthday today and I thought I should make an entry about it in case you all want to wish him a happy birthday. I know it is sort of early here to be making this entry, but I thought it be easier for me to just get it up now around 12:00 AM EST, so I won't have to worried about anything coming up later in the day.

Some unrelated news to this, I think I may have take a break from here again, expected this time longer than one day as I realize this place has been distracting from getting work done on my summer reading. It isn't that I want to go really as I much preferred being around here, so I can be sure that I don't miss much with Bionicle Kingdoms RPG. But I know it is for the best as I needed to focus on my last book as I should of had it done by now, if I wasn't so worried about Bionicle Kingdoms.

Oh, well. I am sure if I do follow through with this break, hopefully I won't miss much in the RPG. At least, I hope I don't miss much as Metru Nui has been quite active lately, but I am sure VF could handle any problems that may show up there. And maybe this break could be a good thing too for the RPG as it could help me come back with a fresh mind to think of new ideas or help make connections to one already made. After all, I am still thinking through on what types of side effects the character, Gxwuly, will have from healing process used on her by living stone creatures in the Archives.

Well, that's all the news, that I have for today. Thanks for dropping on by. And if you wish to wish my brother a happy birthday, feel free to post here. I'll be sure to tell him your replies. *waves to audience as he ends the entry*

I Don't Grok.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Aug 12 2008 · 35 views
Life
Well, I just finished the book, 'Stranger in a Strange Land', and as the title say I don't grok it.

For those that hadn't read the book and don't know what grok means, it is basically a fictional Martian Word in the book that in simple terms means to understand something completely. Book-wise though it has been describe by main character(Human raise as a Martian through childhood) to mean: to drink or rather to understand so much that you become one with thing, you are trying to understand.

Anyway, I personally found the book to be interesting, but it did talk too much about religions for my tastes. After all, I expected when I got the book, it would be about a sort of superhuman from Mars trying to keep the world or universe safe instead it was about a human raise as a Martian, who is brought to Earth to learn about his true people. So, yeah, it wasn't what I expected, but it was a good story and did make me think as it brought up many interesting topics.

Beside that news, I like to ask you all for a favor. Could you all keep my grandmother in your thoughts or prayers? She has recently been having kidneys problems for the past few days and I have been worried about her. Some good news though, I have heard from my brother that she has brought home sometime yesterday, so chances are it may not as serious as I think it. Nonetheless I be grateful that you keep her in your thoughts still and thank you, if you do.

Update On Jmj's Life...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Aug 03 2008 · 14 views
Life
Hey, Bzpers. I just thought that I give you all ahead up on things that happening in my life currently. To start off, I think I may needed to take a few days off from Bzpower to work on my two Summer Reading books that I'll need to get done before the end of this month.

So far, I have been able to read about 200 pages of the book, 'Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein' with about 238 pages to go and once I am finish, I'll have to fill in the Graphic Organizer about the book. Then I got start reading 'The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald,' which only 100 pages or so meaning it won't take long and the only trouble with that one would be writing the essay on the book. That's basically why I am thinking about taking a break from here, so I can those books out of the way.

In other news, my father, after taking my sister out driving, told me today that he wants me to study the Driver's ED book as he wants me to take the test for it eventually. I am surprised by this mainly because my mother told me that I couldn't learn to drive until I had a job, so I expected for most part that I wouldn't learn to drive until I am 18 like my sister did sometime ago.

I am personally unsure on how to feel about this news though. But its not like I don't want to drive, it just I feel it is adding up more to the pile of work that I have to do during my Junior year of High School. I mean I got plenty of other things to study for like the SAT, which I'll take in March. Then there is the PSSA that I take before my Spring Break, I believe. Its a lot of stuff to focus on and as I may have no Math class this year, I will have to keep my brain update on things that I learn in Math for those tests.

And I can't help but feel nervous about all this stuff as I don't want to do bad in either of them. So, yeah, I am not sure if learning to drive would be a bad thing or good thing for me. That's really all that been happening lately, thanks for listening.

The Result Of Jmj's Boredom

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Jul 26 2008 · 19 views
Random
So, I was editing my profile today and I decide to do something different as I was sort of bored, so this result from that boredom:

*Toa Canisters fly on by*
...

This is Emperor Carapar speaking...Your local Toa heroes had fled the city for obvious selfish reasons, but they left me in charge to keep you all in line.

So, said hello to the Carapar Empire. We hope you enjoy your stay as you won't be leaving ever. *crack a simile...screams from below are heard*

Now now, ladies. There is no need to scream about my handsome appearance. I know I am beautiful and I'll sign all the autographs, you want.

*eerie silent*

Is it just me or am I talking to myself? I mean I could of swore a second ago, I had an audience of thousand Matoran looking up to me from the arena at the Coliseum.

Now the city of Metru Nui looks like a ghost town as if the Matoran just boarded up on to boats and left. Its strange too that all the boats in Ga-Metru harbor are gone. Hmm...They are probably unrelated.

I am sure there still Matoran here, after all they are needed for the grand design of universe. Beings like me are just there to keep order to the universe. Speaking of order, I should probably order lunch from my head chef downstairs.

*click intercom system button on throne*
EC: Hey, Chef. Mind getting me a Tren Krom sandwich? I like one of his tentacles would be prefer. I just love the taste of his tentacles. I guess it because it reminds me of life in the sea, not that I like being a sea creature that is. So, how about that sandwich?

*long silent...broken by a rough tired fill voice*
Chef: What was that, sire? *yawn* I was sleeping down here, since the Matoran were gathering for your announcement.

EC: I ask for a Tren Krom sandwich, chef. I want it all. And I want it now. *cheesy song starts up and end a few seconds later* Well, is it done?

Chef: Huh? What you say, sire? I was asleep again. It sounded like you may rip off a commercial song though, which is strange and sort impossible to have happen here as television don't exist here. So, I must of dream it.

EC: *sigh* Listen to me, chef. I don't like to repeat myself and its bad enough I had said it twice and you didn't hear. I want a Tren Krom sandwich...Got that?

Chef: Yeah, I heard you now. So, you want his head in a bun or on bread?

EC: I want one of his tentacle, chef. Not head. Heads don't taste good, trust me...I know. *flashback to scene in which Carapar attend to eat the head of Takea, only to spit it out* And I prefer bread for my sandwich, although a bun would be fine too considering they are basically the same thing, just made differently by the way in which the wheat is form to make it.

Chef: Ah. So, you want a Mask of Shadows sandwich with a side of tentancles?

EC: Do you have bad hearing or something? I didn't asked for a Mask of Shadows sandwich with a side of tentacles. I asked for Tren Krom's tentacle sandwich. And what is with you in giving me meals with heads in them? Do I look like a head eater to you?

Chef: Ah, I understand, sire. Your sandwich will be done in a hour or so.

*hour goes by, but still no meal*
EC: Where is it, chef? I am getting impatient with you and if I don't see it soon, you're fired!

Chef: *snores*

*connection to randomness is lost at this point*

That was basically it. I probably could write more, but it probably go on and on until it became just too boring to read. I am probably going to remove it from my profile as it isn't really about my interests. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the randomness of it.

Does Anyone Here Have Any Of The Summer Sets?

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Jul 23 2008 · 65 views
Lego/Bionicle
Just wondering as I like to hear people's opinions on the new sets, so I can help myself decide on what sets that I will get.

I personally like the look of Takanuva 2008, so I'll probably will get him. And the vehicles also look pretty cool, although Lewa's vehicle is a lot of money and if I go for him, I won't be able to get any other sets really.

Thusly, I thought I check out your opinions and this entry was born. Now if you would be so kind and tell me your opinions on them, I greatly appreciate it, thank you.

Why So Serious?

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Jul 20 2008 · 31 views
Discussions/Opinions
Hey, guys. As most of people, who saw the Dark Knight, can guess, I saw it last Friday. It was an okay movie in my opinion.

I personally thought because I didn't see the previous movie and I was more into seeing Hancock than the Dark Knight. But I end up seeing the Dark Knight instead of Hancock, which I could avoid if I had spoken up in time to my father that I want to see that movie. Oh, well. At least, going to AMC to see movies like that is free for my family, considering my father has work part-time there for years; so chances are I could see Hancock, if it is still in theaters, the next time that he need to be called in.

Anyway, not that I want to repeated what many others here have said, but I thought that actor, Heath Ledger, did a very good job as the Joker of the film and it is very sad that this was his last film before his death. I personally thought the Batman in this movie wasn't really the main focus in it, rather it more like the Joker was as he stole the spotlight throughout the movie. I like pretty much every scene that the Joker was in and I found the ending of the movie to be alright.

That's really all that I thought of it. Just thought that I should let you all know. By the way, happy belated birthday, Bzpower.

I Can't Believe I Almost Forgot This...its Been Three Years Here After All.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Jul 18 2008 · 23 views
Bzpower
Today is the anniversary of me joining here. So, I had now officially been here for three years and I had gotten the awesome three year spinner mask, the Huna. smile.gif

It been a nice three years here and I hope to stay here for many more years to come. And I find it to be a little ironic that I join two days before Bzpower's anniversary. I guess when I joined, I didn't know that or maybe I did and decide to join two days before it, so I remember both dates easier. Probably not as I remember trying like everyday back in July 2005 on joining here, but I never got the message in my E-Mail that confirmed my joining during my attends.

Eventually it was on this fatefully day that I borrow one of my Father's E-mail addresses and it work. So, here I am now still on this site with only a few differences from my 2005 self such as having a different E-Mail address this time instead of my Father's, doing better with my writing skills(Although I still make plenty of mistakes in things that I am trying to write, but I never said I was perfect.), older and wiser, and a premier member until sometime in August, this year.

Well, that's my news of the day. I wish it was more interesting for my visitors to read about, but its pretty much a fact in my life that I live a really boring life most of time, which you guys wouldn't want to hear about. If I am feeling up to it, I may make a drawing to celebrate my anniversary and link it here. Although it sort of hot out today and my fan will make drawing somewhat hard as it will blow the paper as I tried to draw on it.

The Long Overdue Entry About Appiled Engnieering Technology Camp...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , Jul 15 2008 · 41 views
Life
Hey, visitors. It been quite sometime since I update this and since I already have the pictures of the mouse robot, I build in AET Camp; I thought I'll show it.

As I also made a video of the mouse in motion to show that it works, I also have remix of that video including the pictures with it, so that you just need to click one link to get to it. Notably I didn't take much time to put music or any sound in the video, so turning your speakers on won't be need, unless you want to hear the sounds of gears or my fan going on near the begin. Anyway, the link to the video/sideshow is below.



Yes, I know I stink at painting. But at least, I try to paint the shell of the mouse. And yes, I know it didn't really move that fast, but I think that may of been because of the carpet. So, that is one of things, we built during the one week of the camp. I must say it was a fun program to be in and I hope the class next school year is just as fun. Below is a picture of the incomplete Beetle robot that I am working on trying to get its front legs on.
