so I dropped off the face of the earth for two or three months. my bad. had some personal stuff to deal with, and I won't bore you with the details. but I'm back, more or less. I realize I left some people hanging (and also totally ditched my FA duties - oops), but I'm gonna do my best to get back into the swing of things. I wouldn't expect a ton of activity, but you can PM me if you want and I'll probably answer. and we'll see about getting some old projects rolling again. happy autumn.
so I realized I made seven whole blog posts in 2015, and I am well on my way to breaking that record in 2016 because I have posted zero posts and it's already April. sorry guys I know you expect so much more of me. I thought it might be fun to do something with this blog though. you know, because it's here and all, so why not, right? I used to hold name-changing contests which were fun, but now that I'm an FA I'm not allowed to change my name, so that's out. (take a moment to weep, dear re
If you want to discuss The Force Awakens, please be mindful of others. Put WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD at the top of your post and wrap your spoilers in seventeen sets of spoiler tags. This is one of the most anticipated films of all time (quite possibly the most anticipated), and not everyone will have the chance to see it this weekend. Please don't ruin this once-in-a-lifetime experience for other people. Even quasi-ambiguous statements like "Wow, plot twist!" or "Hmm, the acting was sub-par,"
yo fam you should really go enter BZP's first annual Secret Santa. It's gonna be lots of fun and who knows? You might even get a gift from me! What kind of gift? Definitely not a slapstick comedy where you and Tahu discover the true meaning of Christmas together. Where'd you even get that idea?
Just a quick note to say that I finally beat FTL. I've put so much time into this game that it truly feels like a milestone in my life. I will now go on to more productive things. (protip: cloaking is OP. took me long enough to figure it out)
Hey guys. Long time no blogging. Hopefully I'll start reversing that trend. (if only I knew what to blog about!) Anyway, I've got a new project in the works. Those of you who know me or have seen me around know that I'm mostly into writing, either in the BZPRPG or in the Library (albeit infrequently). This time, however, I've decided to try something completely new, something completely outside my comfort zone. I've been working on it for some time, but I didn't want to share anything until I
I'm moving away to attend university this fall. It's a weird feeling to look around and realize that the life I'm living right now will disappear at a certain point in time. Three weeks from now, to be exact. I've always known I'd leave home eventually, but putting a specific date to that concept is definitely a little spooky. I've already found a place just a few minutes off campus, and I'll start packing this week. It's neat. So to all of you who have already gone through the process of

Some of you youngsters might not remember the good old days when I held a name change contest every month and a half, but all y'all vets will remember just fine, I'm sure. Such were the days of names like "kjanfijfaoisfjasfiseyruado," "Nukaya is Awesome," and "Delicious Chocolate Milk." Well, guess what? We're back! That's right: you lucky kids will get the honour and joy of watching me parade a silly name -that one of you submitted!- around BZPower until December. All you've gotta do is pos
So I was at Starbucks the other night, buying a bag of coffee beans. There’s a line, but it’s only three people long, so I’m like “no big deal” and wait with my coffee. It quickly becomes obvious that these three people ahead of me are friends and hanging out at Starbucks. The first two order their drinks loudly, but they’re pretty ordinary. Then the third guy steps up to the plate. "WHY’S YOUR MEDIUM CALLED GRANDE?" he says in this smug, condescendingly hipster voice. "GRANDE IS ITALIAN FOR
Bionicle (stylized as BIONICLE) was a line of contraction toys created by the Lego Group marketed primarily for 5-to-16-year-olds. Originally a sub-theme of Lego's Technic series, the line was initially launched in early 2001 in Europe andAustralia and the following summer in North America and over the following decade became one of the Lego Groups's biggest-selling properties. The theme's concept is based on two earlier Lego themes that featured characters based onclassical elements and incorpo
Do you ever have one of those days where something really just gets up in your face and grinds your gears? Uhh, bad wording: I bet you're all picturing that Peter Griffin meme that pops up every few weeks on Facebook like a pimple on my news feed. I'll try again: you ever have one of those days where something rubs you the wrong way and you just about burst like a broken fire hydrant? Yeah, me too. (I usually do better with the metaphors, jsyk) Those who know me are aware that I don't get
MY LITTLE PONY HAS ONLY GIRL PONIES WHAT IS THIS MEN ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. ALSO THE LEGO MOVIE DOESN'T NEED MORE WOMEN; IT HAS ENOUGH. If you agree with this, go read this post. If you don't agree with this, then good job! Go read this post instead. If you're confused, go read this post. If none of the above apply to you, then this post is the one for you. #tylerbomaye
