a year and a half since my last blog post

hey?   I don't really know what to write, just figured I should write something... I guess I moved out to the city a year ago on my own and work in a recording studio now so that's some life updates. and my band's working on a new EP and a second album. oh also I missed my 13th anniversary of being a member of this site... 2004 feels like a lifetime ago   and that's all I got! bye for who knows how long until I remember to post another one haha

My band's first album is finally out!

Hola BZPower, long time no see. I've been keeping pretty busy with work and stuff, but more importantly I've been slowly chipping away at the creation process for my band's debut album over the past 9 months! It's been a long time coming, some days I didn't think it'd ever be ready, but I finished it and here it is.   I wrote every song on the album with the exception of one, which I co-wrote with a good friend who is not in the band. All the musicians volunteered their time and energy to learn

Some music for you

Hey there BZP! It's me, Xinlo, the guy who stopped being active on here for quite a few months and finally decided to show up again!         But yeah only reason for that was I just finished up my third and final year in music college, so this is the first opportunity I've really had to do much else besides study and write music. Anyway, the purpose of this entry is to inform anyone who might be interested that I've compiled an EP that includes all the full* songs I wrote and recorded during my

Top 6 Albums Of 2015

well 2015 is officially over (thanks) and as I do every year, I'll list out my favourite musical offerings from the year. This year was a strange one, as many of my favourite bands released really solid records that I liked but never really got hooked on for some reason. I attribute it to my mental state through most of the year and not to the albums themselves though so with that in mind, here be the list:   1. Hand. Cannot. Erase. - Steven Wilson     I've been a fan of Porcupine Tree for a co

that time of year again

Well hello again bzpower. been a little while since i had much of anything to say in this here blog of mine, but seeing as it was my 11th anniversary on this site two days ago, and my birthday three days before that, it seems I have some stuff to blog about finally!   So yeah firstly 11 years on this site, and seeing as I'm now 21 that's officially over half my life. crazy.   As for my birthday, well... it was probably the best birthday I've had possibly ever. I've made a lot of friends this yea

Xinlo Music

hey so I realized I've talked about my times in music college a little here, but I've never actually posted anything that I've done there. I don't know if anyone will be interested in it, but I've got A WEBSITE that has 5 songs up on it (mostly finished, minus some tweaks I want to make), all of which I wrote and played and produced. The styles range from doom metal to pop rock to new age/trance to prog rock, so hopefully one of them might be to your liking. I'd appreciate any feedback you may h

The Toa's Hideout

There's a site out there called The Toa's Hideout (or tTH for short) that maybe some of you remember? It was started by a few BZP members way back in the day. It did pretty well and I somehow managed to become staff. Eventually, after many incarnations, tTH3 happened and it was pretty successful. we got that site running right as BZP had its famous 6-month downtime, and a whole bunch of wandering BZPers found us and it was great.   After a few years and bionicle's demise, we closed it down and p

update on life and such

Hey there bzp. long time no see. figured I'd just pop in and throw a little update for fun since it's going around.   A lot has happened in the last few months since I last posted in this blog, so I'll split it into two categories:   The Good Stuff:   -Saw Avengers. Loved it (aside from bad opening CGI) -managed to collect all the 2015 BIONICE so far -made a lot of awesome friends at college this year, hung out with a lot of people and generally improved my social anxiety situation -graduated mu

korra take 2

I'm -still- having a hard time believing that it actually happened. that finale is all I've been able to think about the last few days between the ending and the fact that it's actually over. I was actually starting to stress out about what the creators would have to say, which route they'd take - but yet again I was relieved with the messages they posted. Good series, good world, good people.   Farewell to the coolest animated show since its predecessor.

Well Jeez

Just had my 20th birthday last week and 3 days later my 10th BZP anniversary, and I totally forgot. I've officially been on this site for half of my life. Wow.   Also I get a nice new tohu spinny, pretty thrilled about that.

my family is destroying itself right now due to the insensitive and unexplainable actions of one member and this is going to be the worst christmas vacation ever if it continues the way things are going right now   I don't even want to be at home. i want to just leave town for a few months and get away and live my life without worrying about some huge fight happening every night

Me

since the only pic of me on here is like three and a half years old I thought I'd post an updated one (also because I thought my hair looked awesome today)

A good day for mail

early birthday gift from my parents. cost about $45, amazingly, for all the roboriders save Boss, two Tahus, Onua, Pohatu, Tahu Nuva, Onua Nuva and Lewa Nuva. Of course I already have multiples of the bionicle sets, this was mostly for the roboriders, but I never had onua or tahu's canisters and all the sets came with their promo material (posters, ad books) which I had long ago misplaced. So yay for that!

Star Wars

Would anyone be able to steer me in the direction of a cool Star Wars DVD box set? I like my DVD collection to look nice and coherent with box sets rather than individual DVDs but all I can ever find for Star Wars is blu-ray. Anyone have one they'd recommend or know of a good one to get?

on the Doctor Who finale

so I got fed up with the show (after being a loyal viewer since series 2) after The Caretaker and haven't seen any episodes since. Ryuujin says the finale's looking to be great, so I thought I'd get everyone's opinion: is it worth catching up on the show to see the finale? Or should I just watch the finale and forget the 4 episodes I missed? or should I just not care at all?   you decide!

Star Trek Movies

I made an art

this is like the first time I've drawn in over a year so I could use some feedback. here or in the topic, doesn't really matter, but many thanks either way!   click for picture of Gali   TOPIC   so yeah she's supposed to be swimming but the scanner cut off her feet so it looks like she's just walking with her hand out in the air for no reason.

brought all my sets out from storage

so yeah my room's really small now and I have nowhere to put all my bionicles, so I packed them up when we moved here and they've been in storage for almost 2 years...   with the return of bionicle I was feeling all nostalgic and had to bring them out, even if they have to go back in a few days.   anyway here's some pictures of my collection as it looks at the moment (this is still only slightly more than half, there's all the larger sets in the long box I didn't take out and all the disassemble

ok NOW I can post my thoughts

these new sets look really awesome and I'm buying them all. I still have some gripes (gali's mask is still too evil looking for me but I am disliking it less with time, pohatu's feet boomerangs seem like an afterthought, onua's hulkness isn't doing it for me and neither is kopaka's bulk. I always saw him as being lean and mean... but oh well.) but overall I am very excited. I'm actually loving lewa so muc which is weird 'causehis mask is probably the furthest from the original but yeah.   also t

BIONICE

So yeah I haven't made an entry about them yet, so because of today's thingy, I will pass judgement.   Edit: Remember not to discuss leaked images. -Wind-   ...right. judgement redacted until whenever
