So, I was talking with a really close friends of mine about our past, more youthful obsessions. Her's ("hers"?) was Pokemon. Mine was Bionicle. Now, we're both major bookworms. She said that she considered reading the books in elementary, and decided against it. Then, she asked me what they were about. After about half a second of deliberation, I said that it's "like Zoroastrianism, but with robots, supernatural powers, and a religion-thing".
There it is, folks'. Bionicle in a nutshell.
Yes, I've returned. I've returned from the crypt.
Not much has happened... Life is good... What's happened since I've been gone? Bionicle has been cancelled. Who didn't see that coming? They sped up the storyline in '06, the books stopped selling well, they cancelled a year of story in '08, and they have a massive reboot in '09? If that doesn't indicate poor sales, I don't know what does.
Other than that? Well... Omi's been banned. That's pretty much all I can come up with
First off, I know that's not a word.
First time I've posted or written a blog entry or posted in a while, but I've got to say, this thing with GregF is absolutely pathetic. I mean, he decides to leave because you bunch of kids pester him and just do things utterly stupid, and yet you try to MAKE him come back? I'd expect better.
Check out these two topics.
Now, if he decided to leave because of feeling pressured, do you honestly think trying to pressure him into coming back will help
So, you all know how I was working on the Bionicle Media Center.
Those same among you probably know that it's development has ground to a halt.
Well, even fewer of you know that I am a paid graphics and web designer.
Here are a few examples of my work.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm ambitious. I.Hate.It.
There is always something to move onto, no matter what I've accomplished. If I find something I wish to do, my other accomplishments seem trivial to me. IT SUCKS.
And now, when I'm a member of an active software company made up of others my age, who are very similar to me in these characteristics, attempt to do something that we can't do. Why? Money. And thus, age.
The shackles of age have followed me in eve
Okay, so some of you (my peepoles! ) know that I'm really busy. Busy with a making a portfolio and website for an architectural firm. Well, to start, we've agreed on $50 per sheet. They have more than 20, possibly 40. AND, I'm making them a website for $15 per hour. Epic, no?
I also got my savings and checking (paypal purposes only XD) accounts set up for online banking today, as I do work with people in other states and countries, it is the best way for them to pay me. I had no idea how muc
Okay, this is like stamp collecting, but even more trivial. jk
So, I now have a green ruru and trans-yellow Kaukau coming in from Denmark!
Czar shipped his, and the ones from New Zealand should be arriving this week. I'm also chatting with Czar about trading for his blue Matatu.
Well first off, I vectorized Flanders for fun.
Also, the new Macbooks, Macbook Pros, and especially the new Cinema Displays SUCK. They are ugly. Whoever thought of Aluminum, black, and gloss and got drunk on it should be shot. Even is it was Ives.
Czar shipped the kaukau today, and I have a reserved Yellow Kaukau waiting for me over in the UK.

This happened after my great-grandmother's funeral as well. I couldn't sleep well. For over a month. Not sleeping well, as in falling asleep after 4:20 AM. That happened last night. Wish me luck tonight... It's 1:12 AM :'(
Actual exchanges between pilots and control towers
Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!"
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"
Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees."
TWA 2341: "Center, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?"
Tower: "Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 72
Okay. This is epic. Very epic.
With all the free time on my hands, I decided to try and code some things which I havn't messed with before.
For instance, a media center.
The flash episodes (with working scripts), the ghost animations, vahki animations, and whatever games I can get working. This will be epic.
btw, yes, I do have working 2002-2003 episodes, which are not protected.

Okay. I normally try not to complain about the sets, but I can't resist here.
I hate them.
Well, thats a bit strong.
I dislike them.
First off, they have a strange Knights Kingdom feel to them which I dislike.
Also, once again, to a large extent, they are clones!
The small sets are pretty much just re-colors of the avatoran (entry on the conjugation of prefix+matoran coming soon ), and the canister sets use the inika skeleto
