(Aurebesh, the alphabet used in the Star Wars universe, or at least one of them)
After a few months of futile resistance and a 'Oh, I'll just go for the free trial' which was a blatant lie to myself, I did break down and get Disney+. It was mostly because I was peer pressured into wanting to see the Mandalorian. Then, you know how it goes, before I realize, I'd made my way through the Star Wars prequels, then all of The Clone Wars. Yes, I'm the Disney+ equivalent of all the people jumping o
That I have a Bionicle hobby isn't common knowledge in my social spheres, but I let slip to my old college roommate that it Bionicle was kind of one of those formative childhood things for me (mostly the books), and she thought it was great, and sent me this mug a few weeks ago! It was one of those things where I didn't want to mess it up by using it, so I kept pens in it just in case. Except that backfired one of the pens got a leak, which I thankfully was able to clean up. So, beverages from n
So, over the past few years (about 3?), I've had the privilege of being able to travel to a few different countries. Mostly for academics. I started collecting the different bills, because, as a United States resident with a mostly monochromatic currency scheme, the other colors and sizes of foreign currency is one of my favorite things ever. Also, sorry, the coins photographed really terribly, but I realized too late.

A student's copy of a term syllabus for class at the Ga-Metru School of Arts and Society.
Nokama is one of those professors who doesn't understand that students have other classes to manage besides hers. But on the plus side, she's very faithful to her posted office hours.

In Remembrance - an Obituary by Aft
Great Furnace maintenance worker, Buon, was welcomed through the Gates of Artakha on the fourth of this month. If there was any Ta-Matoran who earned a rest in paradise, it was Buon.
He was known throughout the district for his unsinkable spirit and dependable work ethic. Many a Matoran, from any district, were privileged to call him a close friend and brother. Buon also was working on a degree from the Ga-Metru School of Synthetic Scienc
A subjective glimpse into happenings in the Silent Metru as the Civil War escalates.

Kopeke sighed and placed the stone tablet with young Ehrye’s untidy scrawl onto the ‘reject’ stack on his desk. The excitable Ko-Matoran wrote almost as well as a Le-Matoran airship assembly worker who worked too long with the lighter-than-air gas that filled zeppeli
Popular Le-Matoran advice columnist, Sanso, replies to a concerned citizen.
Even though I’m an quick-running Ussal messenger with a High-Flyer level commute badge, I’ve heard whisper-talk that soon the Smelters will close all borders to their affiliated metrus, bar-none. What’s the point of having earned a High-Flyer badge if I can’t get into Ga-Metru to see the beautiful [name redacted] again? Any advice-help?
The first of a small series of flash fiction to augment my current epic, setting some groundwork for how the Matoran Civil War is going to be portrayed. Not meant to be chronological. Also, a bit of a bother, as these don't merit a short story, don't fit into the review topic, which I'm using as a reference section, and I don't want them interrupting flow in the story topic. So blog it up, right?
Fun and totally legit fact: the newspaper in Po-Metru is called The 'Po-'st.
Re-reading old Bionicle Adventure books, only just noticed this (screenshot of text courtesy of the Biological Chronicle project, thanks and awesome project).
I definitely chuckled when I realized it was (probably?) a pun, but also kinda got stuck on it. This is a pun, right? Does it break a fourth wall of sorts? am I dense for only just noticing it after more than a decade since reading/watching this dialogue multiple times? It's also just funnier the more I think about it. Anyways, I
Recently moved back home for a season, and one of the greatest joys is spending time with my parents' dog, Dakota. We've been working hard at going for a walk every day before work, which is good for both of us. He keeps me very accountable, and is uncannily good at guilt-tripping. While splicing the video together, he was kind of upset at me, like "Why are you sitting around watching videos of me when I'm literally right here. Play with me!"
Here's a picture of his guilt-tripping p
