TIME TO FIGHT SOME GHOSTS


A new fighter for Pokken Tournament has been announced!

Posted Image

If type immunity comes into play then this is a very broken fighter we are looking at. They probably won't, of course...though Gengar could still be broken who knows.

Personally I'm hoping the game gets representatives for each Generation and type, but it'll be awhile before we'll know about that. I'm just really excited, I want to play this game.

On Post Counts

Posted by V-N in Blog., Apr 26 2015 · 74 views

Man, it is amazing looking at some people's post counts. I have been a member here for eight years and only just cracked 2500. I cannot fathom how some people are almost at 20,000 (with one person already past that, almost clearing it by my entire post count!)

However, we must remember that there is one known rank which these super-posters have not achieved! And so, I challenge them to achieve this rank!

And I'm closer to it than they are. Get cracking, guys! :P

...

hey I'm trying to feel good about myself okay.



this is definitely not an attempted plot to get a higher post count than everyone

From: 2015 BIONICLE Episodes Compilation

Posted by Pereki in A Rather Uninteresting Blog, Apr 26 2015 · 41 views

Now that all the episodes for 1HY2015 are out, I've compiled all nine episodes into a single video, cutting out all of the unnecessary repetition. Came out to about twelve and a half minutes. I did the best I could with the audio transitions, but it ends up a tad awkward in places - there was really only so much I could do. In any case, enjoy!

Obnoxious Text

Posted by You Have 24 Hours in You Have 24 Hours, Apr 26 2015 · 66 views

What's the most obnoxious/annoying/irritating way of displaying text you can come up with?

THIS IS REALLY OBNOXIOUS

See how hard to read that is? Now add in alternating caps lIkE tHiS or, to me, even worse: Capitalising The Start Of Every Word. Give it some rainbow text too. Perhaps random bolding, italics, and underlining for good measure. Ooh! Align it differently each line. Line 1, right-aligned. Line 2, left-aligned. Line 3,right-aligned again. Line 4, centred! And if that wasn't enough, add in random subscripting and superscripting. I don't think such text would be complete without some random emotes thrown in. Then we have the most beautiful horrifying text to ever exist. So horrifying, in fact, that if you were to lay your eyes on it, they would hop out of your eyesockets and fly away as they suddenly sprout wings out of horror, seeking a new body, one not tarnished by the sight of horrifying text.

And we're off again!

Heh, it's spring now

Was that clip reused from Fall Weather Friends?

They haven't been together very long

She will always look silly with those wings. No matter what

Rainbow Dash doesn't already know this?

Sleep is for the weak

LOL

Yes, please

I cannot stand those angry faces they make

Hot cider? Sounds a little nasty

Who's on first?

Let's see if this song is any good.. I think it's the fourth?

Eeeeeh

Yep, another not so good song. At least it's not as bad as the other ones we've had

I'm guessing that picture is some sort of reference?

The Rainbow Factory!

Oh, that's cool. The jar had a lightning bolt in it

That's one way to do it

How'd they all get there?

loooool

So.. That's it?

Oh

Didn't MA Larson say something was supposed to happen in this episode?

Here's the quote: "There's something in tomorrow's ep that I told Hasbro I'd take full responsibility for. So, in advance, it is entirely my fault. #MeaCulpa" So what happened? Or are they just overhyping an episode again?

Uh.. Okay. Not sure if I liked this one better than last week's episode, since I can barely even remember what I thought of it. I guess this one will get a 5.2/10

How Do You Make An Avengers?

Posted by Ta-metru_defender in TMD's Creatively Named Blog, Apr 25 2015 · 76 views

Essays, Not Rants! 162: How Do You Make An Avengers?

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out here in the States in a few days, which makes me realize that we now live in a time where time can be measured in Avengers movies. Which makes me think about three years ago when I was eagerly waiting for the first one to come out.

It’s important to look at just how sharply The Avengers affected the current blockbuster landscape. The idea of a bunch of characters from separate films coming together in one movie was a very novel idea, outside of maybe Alien vs Predator. Now, ever since The Avengers made approximately all the money, DC’s been working fast as they can to establish their pantheon of superheroes. Amazing Spider-Man 2 spent much of its time trying to set up as many plot points for there to be a variety of spin offs. There’s even been an attempt to revive Universal’s horror movies with the intention of having Dracula, et al team up. Ever since The Avengers proved that it works, there’s been a big push to establish these so-called shared universes.

Of course, that’s missing that one of the things that made The Avengers work was that it wasn’t rushed. Marvel Studios spent five movies and four years building up their characters and their world. By the time The Avengers came out, audiences were at the very least aware of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America through good old pop-cultural osmosis. That done, they still took time to set up each character — including lesser known characters like Black Widow.

Furthermore, Marvel Studios hired a writer/director with a reputation for being able to handle ensemble casts. Joss Whedon’s only other movie at the time, Serenity, was able to reestablish the crew of the titular ship for people who both had and hadn’t seen the show. He had a similar task in The Avengers: establish six heroes, their boss, a couple minor characters, and a villain while also weaving together a coherent plot. The Avengers worked, due in no small part to Whedon’s writing.

The other thing about the shared universe concept is that it’s different from your typical movie production. There are grand story arcs that each film has to navigate around and fit in alongside. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is being run more like a television show than a typical movie series. Kevin Feige, executive producer on all Marvel Studios films, is effectively the showrunner of the series. He’s come up with the big ideas and found writers and directors to do each ‘episode.’ Once again, getting Joss Whedon onboard for the first two Avengers films made sense, most of his experience has been within the constraints of television. The Dark World was directed by someone who’d worked on Game of Thrones, and the Russo brothers, who did The Winter Soldier, directed for Arrested Development and Community. It’s also the Russo brothers who’ll be directing Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, showing again Feige’s predisposition to those used to working in television. But this is still a novel form of filmmaking, and it’s one that Marvel’s making work.

I’m as excited to see Age of Ultron as I was to see The Avengers three years ago. Of course, I’m approaching this movie from a different perspective than I did the last year. And I don’t just mean someone who now actually reads comics, either. I’ve spent the greater part of the last three years at university studying storytelling and narrative. All this to say, I’m really impressed with how Marvel’s been handling their universe. It takes a lot of work and there are a host of missteps they could have taken.

So come Thursday evening I’ll be sitting in an IMAX theater in Kips Bay. I want the movie to be good, because I want to see Marvel keep expanding their movie world. That and I can’t wait for the Captain Marvel movie.

Bonkles 2K15 - Episode 9

That was more than a little creepy. Summer villains confirmed for creepy ancient (possibly Toa) zombies?

What if the LoSS was guarding the city to make sure they didn't get out? :o (Nice job breaking it, heroes.)

Brickfair

Posted by Dina Saruyama in Scrimmy Bingus and the Crungy Spingus, Apr 25 2015 · 170 views

So I'm probably going to regret thinking about this in the morning when I'm fairly less sleep-deprived and bold but I guess I'm actually considering attending Brickfair VA this year??? I've never been there before and the idea of planning my own trip as an adult is daunting but I guess this is something I'm seriously considering?

Right now, the biggest obstacle is travel. Living in Minnesota pretty much means being halfway across the country from everything, and that includes Brickfair. Traveling halfway across the country is expensive. An airplane flight costs pretty much my current monthly budget, and buses are over half still. (Plus I was recently warned away from Greyhound buses for being a little unreliable.) If push comes to shove, though, I could try supplementing my usual budget with some money from art commissions, and cutting back on some spending in other areas. So transportation is a maybe, depending on budget.

idk. I should probably make up my mind on this soon, since hotel room things are probably best hashed out sooner rather than later. This entry is kind of thinking aloud and also kind of letting people know that this is a thing I'm considering? (If my presence worries you, know that I'm much quieter in real life :P)

I guess that's pretty much it for this entry??? I guess it's a lot of words for "I'm maybe thinking of going to BFVA kind of". So yeah.

Dark Souls shtuff

Posted by Voxumo in The Fikou Web, Apr 23 2015 · 58 views

So I recently completed my initial playthrough of Dark Souls, 170 hours later, and after messing around with some invaders I decided to create a secondary character.

You see my initial character is somewhat of a Int build, with varying bits of strength and dexterity. I like being able to wear these heavy**** armors and able to take hits, but still able to use my magic. Like currently for him I'm using an Enchanted Scythe +5, able to deal 600 damage, Logan's catalyst and a Black Knight Shield +5. Armor Wise I'm typically using the Black Knight +5 set, though sometimes I change it out with bits of Black Iron set. Overall I'm somewhat satisfied with this build. Oh and the current SL is 144

However for this new character I'm thinking pure strength/dex build. I'm typically not one who likes this type of combat, but I figured I'd give it a try. I want the character to be able to use light armor, so I'm probably going to be using the Thief set, since it offers decent defenses for a light armor, and it's weight is good. Though I'm also going to be putting alot of levels into Endurance, because boy will this character need to be dodging alot.


So yeah, just thought I'd share this.

So I've been compiling some information, and I think I've stumbled upon something big.
  • Even for someone working at a Lego design shop, Swert has an inexplicably extensive access to Bohrok-Kal parts
  • Swert recently acquired a WMKK
  • Swert is obsessed with the Nuva Cube
  • Swert's OC's element is Gravity
  • Swert is a known associate of the voice of Gahdok
  • Swert himself is the voice of Tahnok
Quite obviously the Swert you know is none other than Swert-Kal!

WAKE UP, MAHIPLE!

To Charleston!

Posted by Nescent in Nervous Place, Apr 22 2015 · 61 views
Life, Travel

On May 15th I may be making the 8-hour trip to Charleston, SC, to see my oldest brother graduate from his military training, and after visiting for a couple of days I'll be returning with my belongings (PC & speakers & Midi keyboard & other things that I've missed dearly). I mean it's probably going to happen, it just depends on the condition of my parent's car. So I'm really amped right now and just wanted to share with someone!

One or two or none of you may have noticed that my activity around these parts has dropped almost entirely over the past month or two. I still frequent BZP and the blogs every day, and hopefully this place flares up around August when the skull gang is unleashed, so I'll feel compelled to participate in discussion again.

I had a dream this morning about Bionicle sets. Next year's wave had been released, consisting of underwater-adapted Toa that looked pretty much identical to the Mahri, except in the new oddly-shaped boxes. There were also Turaga, and I collected them all. The interesting part of the dream was that I was underwater, in this magnificent dark blue sea filled with wreckage that had been inhabited by friendly mer-people. It was one of those dreams where I spent the day wishing that it wasn't a dream...it was just so cozy.

I am also rewatching Lost again. I think this is my third time watching the show. Every time I rewatch it, I discover new stuff that makes me giddy and excited. Little things, like Kate's toy airplane. It was in safety deposit box #815!

A few days ago I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I'm ashamed to admit that it is the first book I've read in over a year, but it reminded me that I love reading, and since then I've also read Ender's Game, and have some more HP books in the mail. I think I'll give The Wheel of Time a shot in the near future. I know little about it, but I've heard some outstanding reviews.

Oh and my little brother bought a bass guitar. For at least 4 hours a day (but usually longer) I have to listen to him struggle to strum the same four melodies over and over and over and over...it's quite agitating.

That's about it. A little general update, for anyone interested.

Radio, DJ, College

So I agreed to Dj a morning show for our college radio station, 91.7 KEOL. Partially because I like doing it, partially because I enjoy early mornings when I actually get up, and partially because they desperately needed someone to fill a morning slot.

still haven't gotten the passcode I need to actually get into the building...Hm...

but hey! if you want to tune in, we've got an online stream at eou.edu/KEOL. my slot is 6-8 A.M Pacific Time on Thursdays. And bonus points (and cookies!) if you can name another BZP member who has DJed at KEOL. Yes, there is at least one...

I plan on playing a lot of christian/80s/musicals. Maybe not in that order. And a weather report. And some news, maybe.
