Blogarithm Contest #9 Winner!

Posted by Sumiki , in Sumiki's Dad, Contests, BZPower, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Dec 15 2014 · 83 views

Posted Image


After struggling mightily to cull excellent entries down to a lone winner, Sumiki's Dad has chosen Portalfig as the winner of Blogarithm Contest #9: Vakama Eats Spam‽

Portalfig will be featured in The Adventures of Sumiki's Dad 2: Vakama Eats Spam, to be posted shortly in the Comedies forum. In addition, Portalfig will receive a signed copy of The Adventures of Sumiki's Dad saga upon its completion—signed, of course, by Sumiki's Dad himself.

Dallior08 and Pohatu: Master of Stone came in second and third places, respectively. As witness to the judging process, I assure you that the decision was difficult and not taken lightly.

Blogarithm Contest #9: Vakama Eats Spam‽

Posted by Sumiki , in Sumiki's Dad, Contests, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Dec 12 2014 · 304 views

Posted Image


As many of you know, my comedy The Adventures of Sumiki's Dad concluded after eight thrilling chapters, and work has begun on the second installment in the series. The Adventures of Sumiki's Dad 2: Vakama Eats Spam is coming soon to the Comedies forum. So what better way to celebrate than a contest?

New characters will complete Team Farm Animals in an exciting romp through the BIONICLE Universe. One of these new characters will be the winner of this contest.

Your job: Post, in this entry, your reason why Vakama would eat spam, preferably in the style of Sumiki's Dad. Sumiki's Dad himself will judge the entries.

You have until Sunday, December 14th at 11:59 PM Eastern to enter, and only one entry is allowed per member.

(If you appeared in The Adventures of Sumiki's Dad, you are still free to enter.)

Blogarithm Contest #8: The Great Vine Challenge!

BrickFair is nearly upon us, and for the fourth consecutive year I will be attending.

Last year, Zatth, Xaeraz, and I went around the convention making all sorts of six-second videos on Vine. We had no shortage of ideas and I'm certain that this year will be no different - especially with Takuma Nuva in the mix.

In addition to our regular fare of insanity, the promise of a custom Vine was presented as a prize in the recent crowdfunding campaign. But that's not all that I have in mind.

So I present to the good members of BZPower a challenge: come up with an idea for a Vine we can make at BrickFair. As long as it follows BZP rules, BrickFair rules, and the law, we can make it.

Since BrickFair is nearly here, the entry period will run until 11:59 Eastern time on July 30th. Polling will be on the 31st, and then the winners will have their ideas filmed the following days.

BLOGARITHM CONTEST #7 - POLL!

Posted by Sumiki , in twiggy, Contests, BZPower Jan 19 2014 · 200 views

Posted Image

 

It's time for the poll.
 
Vote for up to THREE explanations of the nature of my status updates. Vote in the comments. You can only vote once.
 
Voting will end on January 19th ​at 11:59 PM Eastern. A tiebreaker, if necessary, will be held the following day.

 




- - - - - - - - - -

Entry 1: You have invented a new form of musical notation, which uses syllables to represent notes. Your status updates are in reality short piano pieces.




-


Entry 2: Written on paper strips are the words. You pull them out of a hat, or several.




-


Entry 3: You ate a Q-fruit from my garden to gain Qtopian powers.




-


Entry 4: Sumiki channels the amazing powers of Vezon, Deadpool, Murdock, and The Mentalist to select the exact and precise words and word order needed. 




-


Entry 5: You get them from commercials. Likely, you take every 3rd, 5th or 8th word spoken in the commercial, or something similar. If it was Lhik, it'd obviously be every 13th, not sure what it'd be for you. It's also possible you exclude brand names and the like.




-


Entry 6: Clearly farm animals communicate these phrases to you in your dreams.




-


Entry 7: They are all simply part of an algorithm, one so powerful and so intricate, that if coded correctly could ultimately destroy the very infrastructure of this world, which would let Sumiki's roam the earth wreaking havoc wherever they go. Eventually, with Sumiki Prime (the head Sumiki) as their leader, the Sumiki's would rule the world with enmity and violence using farm animals as tools of war. For him to finish these algorithms would essentially foreshadow the dark and merciless future the Sumiki's have planned for us. That is an incredibly scary thought. I pray that the algorithm will never be completed; otherwise, we are doomed.




-


Entry 8: Surprisingly, it is a simple process that forms highly philosophical messages. Sumiki first takes the first and last notes of a piece by any famous composer (though he is partial at the moment to Chopin), and then converts their tones into a corresponding human pheromone. He then exposes test groups of 400 individuals to this pheromone and records their moods. These moods each have differing corresponding number values on a very special spreadsheet. Sumiki adds these values together and then counts backwards through the Oxford English Dictionary. This is how he obtains the so-called "odd words" in his status updates, so called by those ignorant souls who view his profile with empty minds. He then uses a trained blindfolded Orangutan to pick a book in the Congressional Library and a trained blindfolded spider monkey to pick a page in the book. Sumiki then replaces nouns, verbs and adjectives in that sentence with ones he chose using his pheromone method to convey cryptic snippets of wisdom from his great mind.




-


Entry 9: They are just random. You try to fool us with a well laid plan. But I see through it. Pure randomness meant to distract us from something far more... less random, as it is clearly a plot of deception designed to ensnare our attention. I applaud your efforts, but you have failed.




-


Entry 10: Mere mortals cannot comprehend the mental processes of Sumiki because of their fourth dimensional nature.




-

Entry 11: Sumiki listens to Broadway play soundtracks and chooses the 42nd word of the first song over 7 minutes. Repeating this process, he gathers enough words to modify sentences from ancient aramaic texts into wise sayings for the modern age.

BLOGARITHM CONTEST #7: The Wisdom of Sumiki

Posted by Sumiki , in twiggy, Sumiki's Dad, Contests, BZPower Jan 14 2014 · 667 views

Posted Image


Some of you may be wondering about me and my sanity due to my various profile updates, which have, as of late, been getting around outside BZP. There's now a Wisdom of Sumiki tumblr and twitter. (I cannot take credit for the operation of either of those accounts.) I also feel as if my activity on here has waned a bit, and I'd like to take a step towards rectifying it. Thus, I decided that it's time for another Blogarithm Contest.

Let's talk about my status updates for a minute - specifically, what's behind them. I'm a simple man, and I like simple, ludicrous status updates. What originally started out as a mashup of whatever surrealist things I came across has taken on a mind of its own.

So let's pretend that these aren't snippets of wisdom that mere mortals are unable to comprehend. Realistically or not, let's assume that there's a pattern here. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is theorize on the nature of my status updates. In other words, tell me how you think I derive them.

You have until January 15th at 11:59 PM Eastern to post your theories in the comments section, and you're allowed to submit up to three entries. After the polls, the winner will be announced on January 19th. The winner will receive a prize.

A very last-minute entry to the Titans vs. Monsters contest. To my knowledge this is the only System-Based Creations entry ... which could prove to be interesting once the votin' time rolls 'round.

If you learn one thing in life, learn this:

You should never, ever question why demons would possess a soda.

just a heads up - Cthulhu would probably eradicate mankind before bringing back Bionicle

so yeah, all I'm saying is, please think twice about this okay

nothing gets democracy flowing like erratic capitalizatION

[the NSA] couldn't say no when I offered them an ostrich farm in exchange

Sumiki -- nice try but we all know Toa Mata Nui stuffs its bra




You have a great understanding of history, but don't forget, war, murder and other poor decisions are also huge characteristics.

Also a long line of really great hats.

Shhh, I'm trying to focus on the negative to justify my dislike of history.

have we mentioned hats

To be fair, I am the one responsible for the invention of Mafia in the 1320s by seventeen bored italians locked in a mine shaft.

It's a long story.
