Regarding Bionicle's Supposed Return

Posted by Ballom , Jul 02 2014 · 322 views
Throwing this in a blog entry because B6 just closed the topic. Regarding this: I would be greatly more inclined (read: still not inclined in the slightest) to believe the claims of the topic if the name Bionicle were actually spelled correctly in the title.

Edit: On further sources of information, Ballom updates the status of the rumors to ... plausible. News at eleven.



I made a MOC!

I also posted another two things that I made for my eighth anniversary here. Only one of them is in the thumbnail, so check out the topic for the other and larger shinier pictures!

BBCC History

Posted by Ballom , Jun 17 2014 · 193 views
So I was just thinking about past BBCCs on BZP, and I ended up digging up an old version of the topic on the Wayback Machine. That nostalgia, man. Too bad the list isn't complete, and a lot of MOCs aren't archived, leaving many dead links. Still, good to look back on.

That got me thinking about how currently BZP doesn't have a history topic for the new forums and the contests we've had here. Someone should compile the list of results for those contests. Given that I have some free time, I was thinking that I might try. If I get all of this put together, hopefully a staff member would be willing to post it as a new pinned topic. I suppose Tufi would be the person to contact about that?

Anyway, food for thought. It would be nice to have a history topic in the BBC forum again.



Only Mostly Dead

Posted by Ballom , Jun 10 2014 · 115 views
*Blow away cobwebs*
Well, that school college-type thing kind of wrapped itself up for a bit, and I thought I'd visit good old BZP, and see how things are going around here. I wonder when I last blogged, I think to myself. Twice in the last year, apparently. TWICE. A good indicator of my activity level on BZP recently: abysmally low. Let's try to fix that, then!
Sooo, yep. I'm making an effort to actually do stuff on BZP this summer. Although I have a job later, that shouldn't be too much of an impediment. And I have really been meaning to MOC more, and blog more, and finish that story in Epics which I haven't posted in since October 2012. (Nudge nudge, wink wink. A review or two never hurts motivation to continue.  ;)) The new BBC Contest should be fun to enter too.
So I'm really actually back this time! I promise! I'm only partly kinda dead, sometimes. Maybe.
In other news, I've still been playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (after a full year, still at it, as G rank is long), along with just finishing up Kirby Triple Deluxe, and continuing Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze now that I have access to my Wii U again. There's also Wind Waker HD and Pokemon X/Y that I still need to finish someday, but for now the others are winning out.


Cancelling the A-MOC-alypse, Starting Epic Topics

Posted by Ballom , Aug 05 2013 · 131 views
Hello again, folks! I know I promised to be on BZPower more, but I sadly have been busy with various things related to school for the last month. However, I have been busy MOCing and writing, and so now I bring some new updates on various topics! :D

First of all, after watching Star Trek into Darkness, I saw a slew of new summer movies over the next few weeks, the most awesome of which was Pacific Rim. That movie, in all its brawling, Super Robot Wars-esque Jaegers vs. Kaiju glory, got me thinking about an appropriate entry for the Titans and Monsters Contest, which led to my latest creation, Vermillion Tempest! Inspired by the likes of Gipsy Danger, it's sure to strike fear into the hearts of pint-sized Kaiju everywhere, and as Stacker Pentecost so memorably said, "bring the fight to them!"

Of course I have been busy with other MOCs too. There's the Hummaera I built for BBC #65, which I am proud to say is roosting in Virginia right now at Brickfair. And then there's a little blue robot I made, the Tactically Corpulent Drone, which is so chubby and cute you just want to scream. :wub:

Finally, after Hahli Husky graciously gave us permission to repost old stories in the Epics forum, I have reposted the first epic in my Terra Nui Trilogy, The Power Within. It's not my most refined or best piece of fan-fiction, but it got me started here on BZPower, and I'm still proud that I finished it and became a better writer in composing its sequels. But it's back for your viewing pleasure, along with a review topic for the entire trilogy, which can be accessed here. I'll be posting a chapter a day, I expect, so stay tuned!

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
