I've been really inactive on this site lately. I haven't even visited for a couple of months. Now it's December, and that's weird. It feels weird, but I guess that's just life. I got Pokemon Sun. I've been playing it. It's fun. It's been ages since I played a Pokemon game from the beginning, and it was a lot of fun. Helps that I think it was probably the best story the series has had thus far. Whole thing was really good. Enjoyed it a lot. Mechanically there's a lot of mixed feelings about thi
It's August 1, which means I've been on this website for 8 years! That's a lot of years. I've been on this site for more than half the time it's been around now, and that is Weird. It's weird! But hey, now I get Ackar's disembodied head. Cool stuff. Anyway, that aside, today is a significant day for other reasons. 3DS related reasons. My circle pad has been....actually, I'm just gonna paste what I wrote about this on another site. So a while ago. Don't even remember when, it was...a while
Have spent the past hour or so trying to make sense of the Lego shop website. Nothing works! VIP wise, for me, anyway. It's just a friggin mess. I can actually only log in in the first place by clicking links in my email, for starters...and I am pretty sure I already put in all my info here a while ago. Years ago. Because I've ordered from them before. I mean yeah I haven't made a purchase from the Lego shop since March last year or something but this is no reason for it to flip out at me. It wa
So recently for no real reason I can identify I started thinking about the old unfinished Chima minifigure collection that is unfinished, because, I never finished it. Guess I got too into KR by the time the 2015 spring wave came around. Anyway I started thinking "hey maybe i should finish that" so I made a few orders here and there. Just got the latest package, with Mungus (and a second Bulkar) so I finally have all the characters. All 82 of these jerks. (technically it is only 81 but I li
So Homestuck's ending in 10 days. So that's pretty weird. I mean, it's weird, right? It's pretty weird. It's gonna end on its 7th birthday. Seven years is a pretty long time for a comic to last, even if a couple of those have been pretty empty. I've only been following it for about 5 and a half years, even if a couple of those have been pretty empty, but that's still a lot. Like, that's a lot. That's gonna be weird. In two weeks I'm gonna be able to say "oh yeah, Homestuck ended on Wednesda
If you are a person, chances are your answer is "What the heck is a Kamen Rider" BUT NO MATTER. I'M SUPER PUMPED. While Kamen Rider Amazon wasn't the best Kamen Rider of 1975, it probably was the best of 1974. Maybe. Ok, I haven't seen X fully so I'm not actually qualified to make the call, but still. I am qualified to say: Amazon is awesome. And while the original actor may not be returning, the fact that we're getting a new series with new Amazons sounds kind of amazing. That the staff beh
I watched a bunch of anime this year. Between being busy with school, busy with work, and busy wasting my time on other things, I somehow found the time to watch way too many other silly things. I think I've watched more things this year than any other. So I thought I'd look back on this year of...watching things. Currently my anime watching list looks like this, since I just finished two series and we're in between seasons. Princess Tutu (pretty great so far, btw) and both the first and
I've been seeing a bunch of these ads from Best Buy lately. This whole "winning the holidays" thing just strikes me as disgustingly misanthropic. And I don't even really care for Christmas all that much. It's just. Pretty bad commercials.
Lots of deals going on right now. Not too many of them really grab my attention. But, I have ordered a few things I've been meaning to for a while...ordered the Complete Calvin & Hobbes (plus one lonely tokyo ghoul) last night, taking advantage of B&N's 30% off deal, so that's cool. Calvin and Hobbes is cool. TRU has some alright deals on video games...considered getting Omega Ruby since they had it discounted by 10 bucks, but I don't really see myself using my 3DS much ever since its co
So I'm in the last stretch of my cultural anthropology course. We're covering patterns of gift-giving in non-western societies and whatnot, including Polynesia, which is of course interesting. I'm reading Mauss's The Gift for this part of the course. (It's about gifts). So I'm carrying along, reading, when all of The Sudden tahutahu THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING
That's a lie, I'm literally always watching anime. Apparently. My mal is telling me this: Which is crazy. Apparently over the last few years I've racked up 50 days worth of anime watching? Like, that's a lot? I could probably have spent a lot of that time more productively. Or at least the one I spent watching Bleach. I guess. All that cartoon watching probably explains how inactive I've been around here lately. That and the fact that I no longer give a single flying flip about the reboot
It's a good day, because Kamen Rider Ryuki Survive's Contract Monster, Dragranzer's S.H. Figuarts has been announced! And that probably doesn't mean much to anybody, but basically: it's a big old dragon! It's cool! It turns into a bike! It's awesome. It looks so good. I need it. It will cost two eyes and a few legs, but it is of no consequence. I must own this thing. I love the Contract Monsters from Ryuki, and this is going to be the first one released in...three years almost? Last one was in
Name change, coming back to my default after something like a year. Now with brand new Armored Rider Baron duds, because he is My Favorite. I'll probably change up my avatars more often now...probably sticking with a Kamen Rider theme though.
I'm taking my first fully online course this semester. I'm taking two. I took a hybrid part-online-part-live course last semester and that didn't...go so hot. But so far these haven't been too bad. I'm only going to university 3 days of the week, so I generally have time to work on the online stuff, but man, work piles up fast. This stuff is neverending. My first year in university I had a pretty...let's call it "lax" approach to my classes. Pretty much never did any of the assigned readings, di
Today was my first exam of the semester, it was for my intro to cultural anthropology class. The class, readings, and exam are pretty involved, so I kinda spent the previous week doing some serious studying and reading (and stressing) a lot. But since there was so much to cover I still spent yesterday and most of last night busy preparing but even then I didn't even really feel ready. I got less than three hours of sleep. But. So, you know how sometimes teachers will give students sample tests
My eye came in the mail today. It's a pretty decent eye. It even has my face, look. Well it's more like Newton's face. But that's whose ghost I am. So. My first foray into the rabbit hole that is Kamen Rider roleplay toys. I like the eyes, so I'm buying some eyes. They don't really do much though. Too bad the lame spooky ghost belt doesn't come out until next month. Still, it's a cool eye.
So I'm coming back to watching Soul Eater Not! after more than a year and apparently people are still angry because it turns out Soul Eater Not! is...not Soul Eater. It's like, in the title. I don't get people sometimes. Or most times.
Yesterday I had the first surgery of my life. It was a septoplasty to correct some respiratory problems I've had for a while due to a deviated nasal septum. It's a pretty minor and simple procedure so it didn't take very long, and the recovery period should be pretty short. Still, it was my first. I had always wondered what the deal was with hospital gowns, ivs, anesthesia. I guess I know now what the deal with that stuff is. It sure is stuff. Some rather interesting new experiences here. An
My current obsession with Kamen Rider is still going strong. My Ryuki figuarts collection keeps growing and it's looking better all the time. I currently have them displayed by color so my Ryuki riders are forming a big old rainbow. (Except for Zolda because he didn't fit. Some day.) I have a Gai and Imperer coming, and I just put in an order for Magnugiga and Alternatve Zero, so really the only stuff I have left are Knight, Odin, and Tiger. And Alternative. And the Survives. So...still a bit.
