My roommate and I rented both Rush Hour movies this weekend, and that's how I've spent my time. All of it, in fact. (I need some extra to get that homework started). Let me tell you, there's nothing better than a Jackie Chan action movie. Unless you add Chris Tucker in on it. Oddly enough, although I've seen bits of the movies on TV, this was the first time watching them title to title. T'was good. Although I heard the third movie wasn't worth watching... this true? They had a free screening of the third one at my college a couple of months ago, but I missed it 'cause I was studying for finals. (Wait, I have finals coming up this week too!) Hmm.
Anyway, I procrastinate. And the best part is, with my screwed up sleep schedule, you can never tell what timezone I'm in, with or without daylight savings time. I'm posting this one at 5:30. AM!!
Wait, wait, no need to fear. I recognize this one. It's one of my old library topics. Since those topics are immortal, it can't be a zombie.
But, OMG, it's a revival of one of my story topics!!
Indeed, it Chapter 51 of Slizers on Mata-Nui! This epic hasn't seen an update for six months!
Also, it appears that Many Adventures had been with the fifth chapter, full of action, as well as another question.
If that weren't enough, even my new comedy Mata-Nui Elections 08 has been updated. Now you can send in your own questions to the Toa candidates to be answered in a debate.
So you all know what this means. If this blog entry isn't enough to get you to read all my new work, I'm gonna PM you to death until you do. (Or not... but you can never tell)
On the other hand, this has inspired an idea for my very first blog contest that I'll eventually get around to writing up once English is over with. Does that pique any body's interest?
On the other hand, I demand reviews for my newest comedy.. If you have not looked at it yet, you should. If you have reviewed... well, I'm thinking of adding some more too it? Anybody interested in that?
Another blog entry posted with a passing thought. Now where did that thought pass to? Oh, it passed away... it will be missed.
Allow me to express my feelings on school right now.
Now that's an interesting blog entry.
Anyway, a few updates for y'all who actually read my stories.
First of all, I have finally updated Many Adventures with Chapter 4. This is a good idea gone wrong, as with my studies I feel I don't have enough time to get quality chapters out at a decent rate. I'll continue to try and work on it, but I fear that lengthy time intervals between updates will lose reviewers.
Secondly, I've added a new comedy called Mata-Nui Elections 08. I was thinking of doing a similiar comedy four years ago with the last election, but I wasn't sure if I was crossing the line of the "No Politics" rule, and I never got around to writing it anyway because I was lazy. This one may toe the line a couple of times, but I feel it is completely neutral towards any particular party, and just makes fun of the whole process. And if it is breaking any rules... well, I have a full bar of proto so I probably won't have to worry about immediate bannation.
Thirdly, I have reread Slizers on Mata-Nui. That epic will not die, as every time I read it I am always impressed by what I wrote. It was on hold due to a tough chapter, but then I lost a good portion of it when my laptop was stolen. I had a file saved on my home computer, but it's about a year behind because that computer crashed too. So, now I found some inspiration to rewrite my notes and think about where I want this epic to go. I won't promise anything, but a new chapter is being worked on. And, knowing me, once I finish it I'll post it without anything more than a brief grammar check. After all, the story's not about intensive planning ahead, but trying to make stuff I said earlier fit in with what I'm saying now.
So, I have two pieces of work updated. Go read them.
Go on, I'll even give you a few lines.
Go it yet? Okay, a few more lines.
I got Shadow in the Sky!
Okay, I can't help it, I've got to spoil the most awesome thing about the book. Prepare yourselves... THE TOA NUVA COME BACK!!
You're not spoiled? Hmm.
Anyway, amazing book, and a great way to finally start off the year in stories. The beginning was a little spread apart... a lot happens all at once, but it condenses down later into a great read. One battle that I found particularly interesting was one between Icarax and Toa Ignika. I won't spoil it for you, as its also near the end of the story, but it left me grinning. And I can see why Greg liked writing about Mutron so much... he's got quite a role.
I dunno if I got lucky... I now live within walking distance from the largest Barns and Nobles this side of the Mississippi... but I'm glad I grabbed an early copy of this. (Although it's the official release date now, right? Strange.) If you want to follow the story this year, grab the book, A it's as good or better than some of the other Legend books of years past. And one last comment... sorry, Canadians, the $4.99 price for me is still $6.50 for you.
Okay, so the color is actually magenta, and not pink. Whatever, they're pretty close.
Well, the magenta severely clashes with the current brown theme of my avatar and sig right now. Truly horrible. It might've been okay with the usual green avatar or multicolored sigs of my past, but brown? Nope. Worst, even the context of my post is chippier than usual. It's like I'm trying to make myself look like a stereotypical female. I don't know if I was mocking the stereotype (because, after all, it was an article on Clickits and Bionicle) or if I was being genuine there.
Whatever it was, it is one of those posts that I find truly embarrassing later on.
But that's okay, because I have those quite often. (Every other blog entry could even count.) And some good came out of posting in magenta. For one thing, it helped me memorize the tags for colors, which led to me memorizing the tags for URLs, images, fonts, sizes, bold, italic, underline, and other formatting options. Even though the newer formats are a bit more complex, the older ones still work. (I should know, typed in a few already with this blog, and they're working. I hope.) Plus, my crazy colored text led to more than a few gender confusions... although this new evidence may bring into the fact that the actual content of my posts was no better.
Nope, I'm male and all that jazz (the new gender statuses cannot lie, right?) I still like the color magenta, and think it's a much better color to write in rather than stuff like pink, orange, or gold, because it is dark enough to read but bright enough to really stand out. Am I going to go on posting sprees with that color? Only when I change the color scheme in my sig and avatar to something else.
In other news, I am suffering from writers block, both in fan fiction and English essays on the 1950s. I'm going to try to put something together for my newest epic that started and then faltered, but no promises. After all, I have one more midterm next week, and then I get sucked into finals. Goodie. This school stuff never ends, does it?
On another note, I had to write this entire entry up twice when the Internet crashed when I was about to post it. You'll be sure I'll make a copy in Word first this time, as I will not write it a third time.
Or something like that. Strangely, I cannot find that direct quote anywhere, and I don't have the movie or book to directly look at right now, so...
Anyway, I am using the last half of the quote for an English essay about, well, the Hordika in us all. (Except I'm talking about basic shortcomings in human nature, and not necessarily Visorak venom).
The fact that I even thought of using this proves I am way too into this toy theme than is good for me. Now I just need to figure out if I'll flunk the whole assignment straightaway if I actually cite the movie as a source. (Of note, I'm not actually done with the essay yet).
(It's also due in a couple of hours. Great...)
