I've come to the realization I am going to miss using this blog. Yes, I know I could stop being stingy with my money and donate to BZP in exchange for continued blogging access, but BZP has gotten my money before (don't say I'm not generous), but I feel personally like my usage of the site needs to be a lot higher in order to get the most bang for my buck. All I want to do is blog, though, and chat with you all about my thoughts on BIONICLE, life, pears, and the universe. I offer my Vahi that
A new exo-planet approximately 1400 light-years away has been found circling a star just like ours, in approximately the same distance from it as Earth is from Sol, and is not that much bigger than our planet (Surface gravity might be around 2g, so twice that of Earth's). Distance is not an issue. I'm packing my bags now to head over to this world and stake my claim on the planet for the eventual interstellar wars that will break out amongst the various planet-kingdoms that will spread out throu
Like a genie freed from his lamp, the premier perks activation for the week of BZP's anniversary have allowed me to come forth and blog once again! Perhaps this shall be a more fruitful week than last year's, but you never know! What if I have nothing useful to write about? What if I suddenly fall off the face of the Internet this week? Such are the worries that keep strong, basement-dwelling men and women awake at night. This first entry is just a re-introduction, I suppose. Tonight, I plan t
I AM IRON MAN!!! From the song, not the movie; anyway, looks like it is that special time of the year they let us crazies come out and play with the Blog machine. I haven't participated in the last few years (thanks, work), but here I am now, on a whim, deciding to share some thoughts with all you whippersnappers. I joined BZP a long time ago. July 28th, 2003, to be exact. This was shortly after I got my first email address, and I was only 14 years old. I'm 25 now, and soon to be 26. That me
The new chapter of BORNICLE: Origins of the Toga was posted recently. Check it out if you want. Part Four should be up relatively soon, but it depends on my availability and how nice the server is.
Thanks again to all of you that actually still read or review that comedy. Methinks it has seen better days, but I feel as if I make one reader happy, I have succeeded in my literary pursuit.
Remember "troutwar" links? I sort of do, since I went so far as to mention it in my comedy, "BORNICLE." I think they were links people put in their sigs that led to bad pages or (in most cases) a silly picture of a trout. They caught the link-clicker off guard. If I a misremembering, somebody please rectify my crumbling memories.
Well, that's it for the retrospective. I was reminded of it while re-reading sections of "BORNICLE." I hope everyone is having a good day on BZPower and in real life
You're going to love this.
NEW TRON: Legacy Trailer (released 7/22/10)
December 17 cannot come fast enough! I envy those people at Comic-con right now who are virtually immersed in all things "TRON" right now.
UPDATE: It appears that previous link was a temporary one for a promotion's sake. I've added a new one that should work. Big ups to Waffles for catching that.
So I'm typing this while on my lunch break at work. See how much I care about you guys and girls?
Anyway, in my quest to make this blog just as peevishly annoying as those of the "regulars" on BZP, I've added some obnoxious content blogs to distract you from my writing, which has now been unduly crunched. I know you love it.
I stared for a long time at BORNICLE last night. I think I will update it soon because all the nice replies posted afterward without a single person whining about wher
As an addendum to my previous post: I request a star rating for my blog while it's temporarily active. I don't care if you want to give me one star or five. I'll take either fame or infamy. It's just a blog.
Go back to your lemonade,
Betcha' didn't see this one coming!
I decided to be fun and update my blog for no reason other than because I can.
I'm sure you are all brimming with questions for me. So I will answer them for now. Better get your own questions or comments in while you can. Chances are that I won't be able to update this blog again until next year (And by then, I might be dead, for all you know, so no time like the present).
Q: Where have you been?
A: College, dude! Actually, it isn't all it's
The server is really killing my blogging game here on BZPower. I had a nice entry written up a few days ago to post here, but since the server decided to lag, I lost all of it. Naturally, I lost the desire to retype the entry, so all my fellow readers get is what I am writing now.
But in short, yes, I have come back from Pittsburgh and CMU. I made a lot of new friends and strengthened some old friendships. Much fun was had, and now I am back in my dreary home. I start school next week, and wi
Like the title says, I am still in Pittsburgh. I am not posting any BORNICLE chapters until mid-August, though I have established no particular date yet.
I was walking in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood and one store had a huge display of kids' Lego creations. They were all either Star Wars, Harry Potter, or Bionicle-themed. The Bionicle MOCs were absolutely pathetic, but I found creative humor in each. The best one had to be two models named "The Sidoracks [sic] Are Talking." It was basicall
Well well well. I lost Art Contest 11. Surprise surprise. It goes to show that the age of accurate-to-set drawings has yet to come.
In happier news, I am in Pittsburgh, living on the awesome CMU campus preparing for college life. So far, the activities have been pretty crazy. A hypnotist of sorts came the first night and guessed many people's locker combinations and names. I thought it was all rigged, until he picked people that I knew personally would not pretend to go along with a charlatan
When not passing his time on BZPower writing BORNICLE, posting unheeded wisdom, or losing Artwork and LGD forum contests, the person who you are familiar with as Bionicle Guru leads a wholly dissimilar life. Many would never guess as to his BZP membership, much less his interest in Bionicle. But anyway, did you know that: He likes to play tennis, and though he is only a veritable noob at the spot (we are talking not even a full year's experience), is getting better all the time. He likes a wide
This is the third time I have become a Premier Member of BZPower, and the benefits only get better and better. It does upset me that I never earned my proto points from good deeds on the forums; only by monetary payment have I allowed myself to appear as an "Outstanding BZP Citizen." So kids, there is a lesson in that. Do not let appearances deceive you. Just because someone seems cool, honest, "outstanding," or smart on the Internet does not indicate IN THE LEAST that they are truly like that.
