ANOTHER Dataclysm? This is getting ridiculous...

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Oct 31 2013 · 168 views
dataclysm, archives, comedies
So...yeah. For those of you who haven't heard, the archives are now officially lost forever from the forums. Now, this would be a mild annoyance were it not for the fact that many, MANY archive topics, including all of my comedies, had lost the majority of their posts several months prior to this, giving me no warning whatsoever. For those of you who are not writers, you have no idea how devastating this is, and is enough to make me nearly want to give up on comedies forever. (Not that I haven't already more or less...but that's another story :P )
 
Luckily, I managed to save a very small amount of archive content, both via Google Archives (which saved me during the last Dataclysm as well), and what little I'd saved as Word documents on my computer and hadn't deleted. However, Pokerahi, Pohatu Puppet Pals, and Ga-Metru School Musical 2 have nothing, or almost nothing, saved whatsoever. The rest of the stuff has varying levels of content available that I will begin reposting chapter by chapter starting today. I also have plans to backup all of my comedy writings, both old and new, to the Lewa0111 wiki and/or a blog to avoid something like this happening again.
 
(Also, I'm not dead. In case you were wondering.)

MASSIVE apology to all of my critics and fans!

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Oct 08 2012 · 264 views
apology, schedule, comedies and 2 more...
Well. I think I'm out of excuses. I've been gone for months with nary a peep as to my whereabouts. (Is that how you spell it? I don't know.)

What's been happening, you may ask? Well, sort of a weird combination of business, distraction, and just being lazy. Last June, Gabriella and I both graduated from the college where we went together, and I moved back home, where I spent most of the summer looking for jobs as well as applying for graduate school. This kept me pretty busy for those few months. Then, toward the end of August, I got a part-time offer for work and started working there, which keeps me busy Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for the most part. This was where the laziness came in. I was so busy those three days that all the other stuff I like to do (reading, watching movies, playing video games, etc.) started becoming higher priority for me on the off days when I didn't get to do them, so BZPower sort of fell off the wayside. In addition, I just simply forgot about it. A lot.

Long story short, I have no idea where my schedule might lead me next, but for now, it's fairly regular. I may not have as much time as I'd like to do all the things that I'd like, but I'll try not to forget about BZP again. I updated Hack Wars with a new (fairly long) chapter, and on Wednesday I'll try to have a new TNI or AM! chapter (depending on which comes next in the crossover) up. Hopefully it'll stay more regular from now on, and I'll try to stick as close to the schedule from the last blog entry as I can (though Tuesdays and Thursdays are now out for obvious reasons, and Friday's chapter may have to get moved to Saturday). My apologies once again and here's hoping it actually works out this time!

Updated Comedy Schedule

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Feb 13 2012 · 154 views
lewa0111, comedy, schedule, tni and 3 more...
Again, I apologize for the recent hiatus. Quite honestly, it was just one thing after another, and I had very little time to come back to BZP. Now that that's over, though, I hope to get back to a regular comedy writing schedule on a weekly basis. It will be as follows:

The Nuva Inn: every other day (Ask Matau! "off days)
Ask Matau!: every other day (TNI "off days")
BZ-Nui Hack Wars: Wednesdays and Saturdays
Mata Nova: Mondays and Fridays

Once Mata Nova and/or BZ-Nui Hack Wars is finished (whichever happens first), I will begin reposting Quest for the Comedy Jokes of Power next. The script comedies will continue to be updated indefinitely, though there may be a slip on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which are the busiest days for me in real life, so occasionally I may not have time to update then. If that happens, the schedule will continue as normal.

Thanks to all my fans for continuing to read, promote, and reply to my comedies! You guys (and girls) all rock!

More Apologies And Some Good News

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Dec 14 2011 · 124 views
hiatus, lewa0111, finals and 1 more...
Ah, the life of a college senior is a busy one indeed.

This week and last week have been full of final exams for me, and as such, lots of studying, which is why I haven't been able to find time to update my comedies (or anything else, for that matter) for a while. I'm really sorry about that, but honestly, there really wasn't much I could do about it. Tomorrow (Thursday) is my last final, though, so expect lots of updates tomorrow and in subsequent days!

A forewarning: I will not have any access to the Internet from the 23rd to the 2ndish. Our family will be going to visit relatives for the holidays, and they live in the middle of nowhere with no wi-fi access anywhere. But other than that, I should get back to updating regularly for the most part. Just thought I'd let you all know!

:mirunu: Lewa0111 Nuva :mirunu:

P.S. Also, expect another holiday special sometime just before I leave for the holidays!

My Apologies, Everyone!

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Nov 23 2011 · 87 views
apology, hiatus, no internet
Well, I have to apologize to you all. I know the last several days have had no new updates of TNI, Ask Matau!, BZ-Nui Hack Wars, or Mata Nova. However, I actually have a very good reason for that, and it is the fact that the internet connection in my room has been down since Friday. I posted one new chapter of TNI in the interim at a library computer, but other than that I haven't had access to BZPower whatsoever.

As for the lack of Ask Matau! updates, this was intentional on my part. Since Ask Matau! was originally started later than TNI in the old forums, events that are cocurrent between the two (such as the crossover saga or the appearance of Joe the Coffee Rahkshi :wakeup2: ) don't line up properly if I had continued to update both at the same time. So TNI is getting updated more often in order to make some of these things line up. But don't worry, Matau will be back soon to answer your questions, viruses, spam, and other random things!

I'll also be posting a new one-post Thanksgiving special tomorrow, so look for that!

New Updates And Stuff!

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Nov 10 2011 · 89 views
comedy updates, mata nova and 1 more...
Well, I've finally gotten back on my normal schedule, with both TNI and Ask Matau! updated today. I will probably be writing Ask Matau! chapters every other day or so, since I realized that the "crossover" saga between the two comedies would not line up properly otherwise. So if Ask Matau! doesn't get updated occasionally (like yesterday) but TNI does, that's probably why.

Also, the first new comedy I've written in quite some time, Mata Nova, is finally here! Again, whether or not you've seen the original show "Terra Nova" doesn't matter, the comedy should still be very accessible to those who haven't seen it. It will be a bit less random and more serious than some of my other works (think BZ-Nui Hack Wars style), and it will be updated once a week at least. Be sure to let me know what you think!

BZ-Nui Hack Wars will continue to be reposted at a rate of one chapter a day, at least on my end, since Gabriella doesn't have as much time as I do to go on BZP each day. Once that's done, it will be updated less frequently but still on a weekly basis.

Comedy Updates

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Nov 01 2011 · 114 views
comedies, lewa0111, updates and 1 more...
Just to let you all know, I will unfortunately not have any time to update my comedies from Thursday to Sunday of this week, owing to the fact that I will be on a volunteer trip for college with no reliable internet access or time to sit down and rewrite a new chapter until then. Gabriella will be able to post the next BZ-Nui Hack Wars chapter, however, and I should be back to the normal schedule on Sunday evening with a new update of both TNI and Ask Matau!

Also, I apologize for there not being an update of anything tonight, but I have a big exam tomorrow morning and I really needed the time to study. However, to make up for this lack of updates, in addition to my normal schedule, I have also decided to begin writing the first chapter of "Mata Nova," the Terra Nova spoof comedy that I hinted at in my earlier blog post. Chapters of this should be updated every Monday, so as to stay far enough behind the show that I don't accidentally give any major spoilers away.

In addition, BZ-Nui Hack Wars is beginning to approach the last of its reposted chapters, and once that's done, it will start being updated twice a week!

New Prose Comedy?

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Oct 26 2011 · 171 views
comedy idea, mata nova, prose and 1 more...
So lately I've started watching the new sci-fi show, "Terra Nova," and I've been really impressed so far. Sure, there have only been four episodes so far (and new ones come out every other week), but what I've seen has been awesome. And then earlier today it occurred to me that the basic premise behind the show would be pretty easy/fun to make into a BIONICLE spoof, and since actual episodes come out so sporadically anyway, it would be easy enough to keep updated, similar to Pohatu Puppet Pals. I'm not sure yet if I will actually write this comedy or possibly wait a little while, but here's my general idea and concept I've started considering.

"Terra Nova" is a show about humans in the future discovering a time portal to the Cretaceous period, and sending people through it to start a new colony on the other side in a more primitive, less industrialized setting. So, my idea is, what if an accident involving Vezon and his Olmak caused a dimensional/temporal rift to appear, letting Spherus Magna inhabitants go through and end up back on the island of Mata Nui pre-cleansing? They could then start a colony including Glatorian/Agori as well as the MU inhabitants we've come to know and love, and have hilarious adventures with Rahi and other craziness as a vaguely defined spoof of the show's episodes. Since the show isn't already a comedy, it would be easier to spoof than if it was already funny to begin with. I also would write the comedy in such a way that it would make sense and be funny even to those who haven't seen the show, since it's relatively new and not all that well-known yet.

But we'll see. The comedy will tentatively be titled "Mata Nova." First, I've got to get through my midterm week...

Thoughts?

And The Winner Is...

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Oct 25 2011 · 176 views
voting, winner, comedies and 1 more...
Well, it's Monday. (Okay, technically Tuesday, but whatever, I don't have free time during the day!)

So you know what that means...as promised, the results of the voting contest! Our winner is none other than..."The BZ-Nui Hack Wars." It got an overwhelming number of votes, more than twice the number of the runner-up, the "Ga-Metru School Musical" series, with 2 votes. "Comedicle" got a single vote, and none at all for Pokerahi.

So, as promised, I'll begin reposting BZ-Nui Hack Wars on the new forums beginning tonight, with one chapter per day until I am caught up to where it was before the forum migration. After that, updates will be twice a week, probably every Wednesday and Saturday. TNI and Ask Matau! will continue to be posted regularly, once per day.

Thanks to all who voted!

Update Situation

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva , Oct 23 2011 · 110 views
comedies, updates, lewa0111 and 2 more...
Just wanted to take this opportunity to apologize for the sporadic updates the last two days or so and explain my planned update schedule.

Unfortunately, due to my having two exams to study for tomorrow, there will not be any updates tonight of either TNI or Ask Matau!. Even though I'm just rewriting old chapters, they still take quite a while to write (believe it or not) and I simply don't have time. However, I will try to update both of them once a day regularly again starting tomorrow night.

Speaking of tomorrow, tomorrow night is day I will count votes and begin reposting (verbatim) one of my prose comedies. Since that will be just a straight-up repost and not a rewrite, there shouldn't be any problem with updating that once per day until it gets caught up. After that, my goal will be to continue updating the two script comedies once a day and the prose comedy twice a week.

P.S. Thanks to everyone who sent in questions for Ask Matau! so far. Your questions will be appearing in the next few chapters, so thanks!
