What I'd like is a day where I can honestly say it was a good day, around 90% happy, 10% indifferent and 0% sad, rather than have a day that has some really great moments but they're only fleeting in what seems to be the general malaise of the whole day. A truly happy day, that's what I'd like, not a boring day, not a sad day, not a mixed day. Bleh, I'm so tired. Also not be such a downer all the time? Well this isn't helping, you COOL DUDE.
So I was looking at Xaeraz's entry about scary fandoms, particularly what dotcom was talking about how the word "Homestucks" is the worst thing ever, and it got me thinking. They're all pretty dumb, aren't they? Bronies, Trekkies, I can't think of any more. But all those names for different fandoms are pretty silly. And if there was one for us BIONICLE fans (past and present), it would be so unbelievably stupid. So yeah, an observation. I guess BZPers would count, but that's pretty silly too.
In all honesty, I was hoping the boards would still be down so I didn't have to do this today, just have a little reprieve, OH WELL. Anyway, that was all pretty random. Much like this!

Seriously, did every band from the 60s-80s have to make a cover of the Batman theme or something? Was it a codified law or was it just some weird music-comic convention? Will you stay tuned to find out? WHOP
ANZAC Day, went to the dawn service for the first time. Lovely service. Thoughts go out to all Australian and New Zealand soldiers, past and present, those who suffered and died for our way of life today. Lest we forget.
So, I'm interested in getting that R2-D2 model, because, you know, it's awesome. But LEGO has got some serious problems with pricing these days. Well, it always has, but current economic conditions have exacerbated it, I feel. Currently, our dollar is more valuable than the US dollar, and has been for well over a year (close to two?). This is after a long history of being less valuable, because obvious the US used to be going quite well. That meant that LEGO sets always seemed more expensive,

1) Sick as a sick person, which is particularly bad because I've got work to do this week and I don't have the energy to do it. Lame. 2) Apparently I won a contest on BZP? OK, that's pretty sweet. And hilarious. 3) Oh cod, canon.
Don't know how I feel about this Friday 13th so far. Also everything in that last entry from two days ago is ridiculous. Oh well.

Go check it out and you will most definitely NOT be disappointed if you do because OMG it is actually so amazing for REALZ yes!
You know what I'm talking about. It's...*drum roll* MAXILOS COSPLAY TIME!!! Yes! It's everyone's favourite game show! Inspired by this comment from an hour or so ago, the idea is to see how many iterations of Maxilos's face using various 'popular' 'culture' we can come up with. Suggestions are crucial. Everyone receives a life time's supply of "What in Mata Nui's name is this?" Cosplays so far:

So, best typo I've seen in a long time. Looking at a transcript of conversation between two people, one from a 'richer' suburb and one from from a 'poorer' suburb. This is while following an audio recording of the conversation as well. At this point, the one from the 'richer' suburb asks are there many ethnics in [poorer suburb]? And the other one says "I don't think there are many ethnics around this way." Keep in mind this is Tasmania, which is clearly more anglo-saxon than any other Australia
You guys stoke my ego too much some times, but it makes me feel all fuzzy inside so thank you. As for this member, hopefully I won't stuff up this letter like I did last time.

Don't think this really warrants a topic, but here you go. "Came up with this the other day, a keyboard that Matoran terminals might use. Generally based off QWERTY keyboards, but, well, yeah, lots of modifications and change of style. Went with Hexagons over Circles because it's easier. I'm sure some keyboard technicians would have a fit over the placement of keys, but I don't care. I'm sure if Matoran had it this way they'd have got used to it by now. The extra keys on the bottom lef
A few things first. For some reason haven't listened to punk music in a while, really enjoying it today. What it lacks in musicianship, it certainly makes up for it in energy and fun. You should listen too, punks. And not the dumb Green Day stuff. That stuff's pathetic. Moved down to Hobart 11 years ago today, and it was a Friday then too. Woot. Isn't it nice when you finally bury the hatchet with someone you haven't talked to in a while for reasons? Yeah. Uni is a pain as usual. Anyway, her
So I brought my Toa Ignika set out of storage for the first time, it's now currently (and proudly) my only BIONICLE set on display. I put all my sets away around a year and a bit ago, so it's good to see at least one back in the light of day. Also he looks kinda epic. As alluded to in that comic from a couple of days ago, I actually am in love with him. And by actually I mean not actually. Isn't it frustrating when people use such absolute terms like 'literally' and 'actually' when they clearl
I'm almost completely certain I've talked about this sort of thing in the past, probably all I ever talk about (not really), but I'm currently deep in this situation and it's doing my head in after only three lectures. But anyway, so you know the people that talk in class all the time, they've GOT to say something just about everything, a comment for every point? And isn't it funny how most of those comments are when they're not just completely wrong (both in terms of accuracy and decency), t

Hey guys, remember that time in 2008 when my old account had the Ignika Spinny before it was even revealed? How hilarious was that? Well, today would have been the REAL day I should have received it. I've been a part of this community for seven years now, and I'm glad I'm still around here. Thanks guys and girls for making this a great place! And I'll sure be sticking around, probably. Also only realised for the first time Pi Day was the day I joined. Heh. Happy Pi Day too I guess! As is c
Some things I'm trying out. Knowing you guys are BIONICLE fans, I think you may enjoy it. At the moment really just a remix/re-imagining of the Matoran theme. Will be longer, more interesting, and not just a remix/re-imagining when I'm done with it. If I ever finish it. [temporarily removed until I reupload elsewhere]
So I didn't bother with the entries I thought of. Because I was 'busy'. Maybe if I feel inspired I'll talk about the issues at a later date.
