Thus it begins

Posted by Fear the Fikou! in The Fikou Web, Sep 30 2016 · 12 views

So it begins. I deleted the prior data, and started up the game.

Named my character Vox for obvious reasons, and since the trainer id ended in a 0 I was able to choose the starter of my choice.
Posted Image
I've always been a Cyndaquil man. Still am. This one's stats seem heavily infavor of speed.

Also looking for name suggestions for future pokemon, since I will be nicknaming all pokemon. Heck, if you want a pokemon named after you, I will also use display names if wanted.
*Imagines hijinks like this occurring*

The story of Brickcon

Snapchat, Brickcon

Well hey there!

Brickcon is this weeked, and myself and a few other BZP folks will be there!

Brickfair was great, and I had a lot of fun taking pictures and snapchatting the event to the people who follow me, and as such, I'm going to be snapping a good chunk of Brickcon and adding it to my story. Follow me and watch my story, starting tomorrow!

(The look of "oh God why would I do this")

This is an unofficial me-only thing, not an official BZP endorsed thing, so be wary that there may be language and other assorted things some of you might not be comfortable with.

Hottest/Cutuest/GenerallyMostAttractive Accent

Posted by Jean Valjean in Kraggh's Works ♫♪, Sep 29 2016 · 37 views

:kaukau: People seem to have a thing for accents. Especially the French accent. Why is it that the French accent is considered the most alluring and romantic accent anyway? I don't see it. Sorry French people, I just don't buy into the hype.

I'll tell you where it's at. I made a joke about Canadians and their accents recently, but I legit love the Canadian accent. It's especially sexy when it comes from an ENFP. I also really like the Irish accent. You combine the two, and you get Colm Wilkinson, who is Irish-Canadian. It's no coincidence that he's the sexiest man alive (That's my opinion and it should be yours too. If you disagree with me, you should be ashamed of yourself.).

I have a Midwestern accent, though, and it's always nice to talk to a fellow Midwesterner, especially if they're ESTJ. Long live the ESTJs, the most superior personality type.

Anyway, what accents do you find hot/cute/generallyreallyattractive?

Throwback Thursday

Posted by Bird Mom Pahrak in Mt. Coronet, Sep 29 2016 · 33 views

We had some down time at work right before I was about to leave so we were just talking. Random stuff, no real direction, and somehow the conversation ended up on dinosaurs, which ones we thought were kinda cool and that sort of thing. And someone mentioned a liopleurodon.

And I was like, “Huh. You know, I’ve only heard that name in one context before. That’s a memory I’m not really sure I want to relive.”

The conversation continued in that vein until I left, neither of us directly referring to the thing we both agreed we didn’t need to remember, but we both knew.

We both knew.

Not to mention that right before that, another coworker had said “pew pew” in response to my saying “laser-focused”. (She was the one who offered “throwback Thursday” as an explanation.) So it is possible I’m entering into some time distortion where decade-old memes come back to haunt me. That could be dangerous…but then again, I know that Rick Astley would be on my side in that fight. He would never let me down.

Side note, typing that title makes me think Throwbot Thursday should be a thing. Maybe.

Viva Las Pegasus/Every Little Thing She Does

After almost three weeks, I'm ready to conquer this episode

Yes, it is

lol

That chuckle tho

They say that almost every time they have go somewhere

What are those things?

This is so old.. They've learned all these friendship lessons, but every time they see an old enemy they still hold the same grudge. I guess they haven't figured out how to get over things. I guess you can only keep doing the same thing for so long

Ten minutes left..

It amazes me that this show still has such a huge following

I'm sure we all know what's coming

I don't know why, but this episode makes me feel like playing Bioshock

Done. Never looking back. 2.8/10

Every Little Thing She Does

Twilight and Twilight 3.0

Is that the dumb rock?

What if they missed?

What if she uses all this training and knowledge to overthrow Twilight?

I figured he'd know what that means

lol

Uh oh

Jaws?

Because they're stupid

Wow, she's dense

Yay, I'm all caught up. 4/10

UPDATE! Updates are updating whilst I update updated updates. Update.

Posted by Lewa0111 Nuva in Of Bionicle, Comedy, and Assorted Other Things, Sep 29 2016 · 19 views
update, lewa0111, tni, ask matau

First things first: TNI has a new chapter, so go check that out. Ask Matau! to follow soon (assuming enough questions roll in), and come Halloween, the Holiday Series will be starting back up! Already got a few nice ideas in mind.

As for my personal life and busy-ness, I'm still quite busy with graduate school but try to find time to write here and there. Hopefully things stabilize soon, but you never know. Adulting is hard!

On my other BIONICLE projects, Sad Sad Lewa is still waiting for more players but I haven't forgotten it completely. Only two people have responded to my big comedy project announcement, but if I get more (especially animators/artists, we're really short on those) we'll be able to decide on a theme and get moving. I personally like the idea of an animated/voice-acted version of Ask Matau! right now (as it would be much easier to translate into video than TNI) but we'll see. Might also make it completely brand-new. Who knows?

Still trying to re-format the QFTCJP cache I found online, but it's slow going. Looks like it includes most of the 2001 saga (about 15 chapters) but nothing past that. I'll definitely be posting something when that gets finished! I may be on less frequently than before, but I'm not gone completely. BZP will always be important!

On Preordering Video Games

Posted by ~Shockwave~ in The Aurora's Edge, Sep 27 2016 · 76 views

I don't understand the justifications my friends come up with for continually doing this. I was playing Destiny with my friend and one of his friends and he mentioned that he almost finished paying off his pre-order for GOW4. When I asked him what he would do if that was a bad decision and it was a dud. He nonchalantly said he would trade it in. When I mentioned waiting for reviews, his freind, in a defensive, sort of offended tone stated reviews don't matter and you should decide for yourself weather you like it.

I mean, that's fine, I guess, but I think you should at least wait to see that the game isn't broken.

My friend also defended the AC game that launched a few years ago, stating that it was a new console and they didn't know how to work with it. One would wonder why they where willing to release the game and block reviews until after release. No, they knew exactly what they where doing.

And we wonder why we get so many broken games....

Today I Accomplished Something I Never Thought I Would

Today I Accomplished Something I Never Thought I Would Yeah, I completed Viewtiful Joe on Ultra V-Rated. Probably the most difficult gaming accomplishment I have under my belt. I guess living in college with a bunch of other gamers drove me to be better.

Zootopia

Posted by Bfahome in You're attacked by a Repair Nektann, Sep 26 2016 · 62 views

Finally got around to seeing it a couple of days ago. And then again yesterday. And then again tonight.

(My Netflix trial runs out today, so had to get a few viewings in while I could.)

I'd looked up the story a while ago because I was kinda eh on whether or not I'd end up seeing it, so I mean it didn't exactly blow my mind in that respect, but even so the plot is intriguing. And pretty much everything about it was great, especially the character animation and voice work.

Only significant complaint would be the big obligatory pop song. I don't think the lyrics are that great.

Would recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it, though, especially if you already have Netflix or are going to get it.

Letting Different People Be Different

Posted by Ta-metru_defender in TMD's Creatively Named Blog, Sep 24 2016 · 113 views

Essays, Not Rants! 236: Letting People Be Different

One of the many (many, many) things I love about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is that the hunky guy Rebecca is pining for is an Asian guy (named Josh, but that parts not important right now). It’s incredibly refreshing — when was the last time you saw an Asian male as a romantic lead, let alone an object of sexual desire by a white woman in fiction? But that leads me to another one of the things I love about the show: it’s not a big deal. No one cares that Josh’s Asian. Even when Rebecca has Thanksgiving with him and his Filipino family, there’s none of that usual other-ing that happens when you see character entering into a space that’s foreign to them. That’s also great.

But part-and-parcel of Josh’s Asian-ness being a non-issue is that he gets to take on a character archetype Asians never get to have — he’s a bro! He’s an idiot. A lovable idiot, yes, but an idiot still. Why’s this matter? ‘cuz when you have an Asian guy in fiction, chances on he’s going to be the smart guy or the dork or, y’know, both. There’s a very specific space in fiction that Asian characters are allowed to inhabit, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend throws that to the wind. It goes on: a middle-aged man is bisexual, the professional psychiatrist is a black woman, the underachieving stoner next door is a brown girl.

I saw The Magnificent Seven this week (#AsianCowboy) and though it’s a flawed movie, it’s still terrifically entertaining and, on another level, absolutely wonderful. The latter of which I’m blaming on how it handles its diverse cast. Race is hardly touched on in the film, which, y’know it doesn’t have to. But instead every member of the titular seven gets to be a rough-and-tumble jerk of a cowboy. Billy Rocks the #AsianCowboy goes toe-to-toe with the Mexican and Chris Pratt, while Red Harvest the Native American makes fun of their food. Every character gets to give as good as they get. There’s no token minority put on a pedestal, everyone has an edge.

Which applies to the action bits too; everyone gets to have their cool bits, with Billy Rocks winning a shootout and throwing knives while saving Ethan Hawke. He’s not the Asian journeyman on a mission, he’s a cowboy (with a knife speciality). Again, this is an Asian character in a role usually off-limits to people that look like him (or, well, me) getting to do things associated with the role that usually doesn’t happen. This doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with, say, Shanghai Noon, where Jackie Chan plays an Imperial Guard on a mission in the old west who’s more martial artist than cowboy. The problem comes when every single narrative about an Asian in that time period is that narrative. So getting to see an Asian character be the quintessential American cowboy — dude, that’s dope.

When Alan Yang won an Emmy for an episode of Master of None, he gave a great speech pointing out how despite there being the same number of Italian- and Asia-Americans in the US. the former group has some of the most celebrated stories in fiction, while Asians have, well, Long Duk Dong of Sixteen Candles. The narrative of Asian-ness is shockingly limited, despite how long they/we’ve been a part of Western culture. In other words: the roles Asians are allowed in fiction is usually one of a handful of archetypes. Diversity and inclusion means changing that, means letting Asians be the dumb bro or the deadly cowboy, means letting the lead of a tv show about being in your 30’s be an Indian guy, it means letting you ragtag band of space rebels have Asian actors, it means making your superhero a first-generation Pakistani immigrant or a half-Asian kid. Let different people be a part of different narratives.

Of course, this is a selfish want — I wanna see more people who look like me in fiction doing everything. But then, don’t you wanna see more people who look like yourself in fiction?

Going to Niagara Falls this week, I ain't ever been there so I look forward to it. Thankfully I don't need to drive any of the way there so I can just binge read Steel Ball Run and mass watch the Battletoads race during the 9 hour trip.
