S & T Review 6

S&T Contest #2 Review: "The Hermit Kantai"   Here's a little gem from the Mata Nui category, Alex W.'s "The Hermit Kantai".   The story is brief, but rich in descriptive and peppered with vocabulary-stretching words such as "gelid," "hyperborean," and "supplicated." I especially liked the author's choice of Kantai--the hermit from MNOG2, who helped Hahli hone her balancing skills.   One day, Kantai hears screams echoing over the snow. He hurries to the village to discover it's being att

The Internet Survival Guide...it's Necessary.

The Internet Survival Guide A step-by-step guide on posting an entry in your blog or sending a message when you're being hunted by wolves, your food is all gone, tax collectors have taken all your money, your house blew away in a tornado, your belongings were taken away and sold in an attempt to pay off your vast credit card debt, the only clothes you own in the world are the ones on your back, all your friends have moved to Australia, your TV broke ten years ago, and you no longer have interne

Goodbye...again...

I'm being hunted by wolves. My food is all gone. Tax collectors took all my money. My house blew away in a tornado. My belongings were taken away and sold in an attempt to pay off my vast credit card debt. The only clothes I own in the world are the ones on my back. All my friends moved to Australia. My TV broke ten years ago. I no longer have internet connection.   But I've got all the cucumbers I can carry.     Turakii

For Those Who Can't Remember

Macku: Toa of Bubbles found a list of all the "dead dates" for each of the forums. Since neither of us can remember when which topic dies where and why, I'm just going to stick this in here. I'm also going to make a contect block out of it.   ---   Topic Life in Days   Q&A- generally none, as the topics are closed too fast Contest Voting forum - none BZP Library- generally none BS01- generally none   Sets- 20 Collectibles- 20 BBC- 20 Artwork I- 20 Artwork II- 20 Artwork

How To Post A Topic

How to Post a Topic in Seven Easy Steps.   (Kids, don't try this at forum.)     1. Think up a good topic. For example, "I like Bionicle," "I can fly," "this is a topic," or "look what my foot can do!"   2. Hit "new topic."   3. Type your main sentence in the title box.   4. Now, the sub-title. Put in "close if dupe." It makes the Moderators happy.   5. Type "title says all" in the post box. Make sure you use bad spelling, so everyone realizes you're an expert at forum-speak.   6. Hit "p

Neo Backbend!

If no one has seen it in my banner, my Art Contest 12 entry is up:   Here's the link.   I have something else I was going to put in here, but I was going to test it on someone first, so I'll just leave you with this memorable picture:     I was bored.     Turakii

Arrr!

Yep, we've got a new name. It's probably very temporary, but I thought we might have a bit of change. (To random person) Arr, walk the plank!   To celebrate, here is a special little Short Story I (and LarryBoy) whipped up this morning:   ----   He was strangling. Choking. Dying.   Kopaka didn't know what word to use. When you're on your knees in the snow, hands clasped to your neck-axle, while you struggle to draw a bit of breath, it doesn't matter what you call it.   He fell over sidewa

Who Wants To Hear A Dumb Joke? And Checker Update!

I moved the last entry down. You have to hear this joke Traku made up!   "Why did the poor baker steal the muffins and sell them on eBay?"   "He kneaded the dough."   And then we both laughed like lunatics.   ---   Quantum-Phasically Charged Traku just beat me in checkers for the second time in a row.   He got all my pieces.   I got none.   Boy, that was a quick game. In the last game, I actually captured one piece. We've decided the first to get three out of five wins. The winner plays

Close If Cucumber

Well, today I'm going to blog about...     Oops! A cucumber!   Entry locked.   ...   ...   ...   Just kidding. Like Traku, I've always wanted to say that.   I know this entry is low on content. I'll write a better one later, if I think up something better.     Turakii   EDIT: Better entry!   What do you guys think of this picture?         Turakii

S & T Story Review 5

S&T Contest #2 Review: "Nuparu"   We really enjoyed recarT ehT's action-filled Mata Nui entry, "Nuparu".   Nuparu is mining along with the other Onu-Matoran. He notices a broken lift, but before he can do anything about it, the miners are attacked by a massive subterranean worm! Nuparu's heroic friend, Tehuti, hurries back to help Turaga Whenua. Everyone scrambles toward the lift. But the lift is broken! Can Nuparu get it fixed in time to save himself and the others from the worm?   Read

Goodbyeeee.....

Today my brother and I were kidnapped by aliens and are even now being taken to the planet Xalax, never to be seen again. So far we've had brief stops on Gallifrey, Raxacoricofallapatorius, Naboo, Marus, Tattooine, Sarum, Brekkekelatabaasta, and the non-planet Pluto. We were going to visit Skaros and Alderaan, too, but the pilot couldn't seem to find them on his charts.   It's been the best experience of my life.     Duke Duke: Turakii, sometimes I haven't the slightest clue what you're talki

S & T Story Review 4

Time for another S&T Contest review! Macku: Toa of Bubbles and I are still doing the ones that didn't make it past the first round of voting.   Here's today's, our first from the Metru Nui category:   RahagaRed's 411-word "Rahaga on Metru Nui" offers a distinctive twist on the Metru Nui theme. The Visorak attack Metru Nui; the Rahaga and Keetongu defend; but the resolution comes from a interesting and unanticipated angle. This is a great story that makes perfect sense. You're sure to en

Aerobics And Tricks...they're Not Just For Kids!

*Sniffle.* Poor Larry has been kidnapped by Traku's minions (which are currently under my power, by the way). They're threatening to chop his head off if I don't give them back to Traku---though how they would manage that, I don't know. Cucumbers don't exactly have heads.   But anyways, I can't give them back because they're not in my room. They're in Traku's. And I'm not allowed to enter his room. Which makes this hard, because I have to give them back.   But this is all off-topic. Anyways,

Turakii! From Yesteryear...to Today

Today is my one-year anniversary, aka Vahi Day. That means I have been a member of the Wonderful World of BZP for one year. Exactly one year.   So, I'm going to use this entry to clear up some misunderstandings, reveal some secrets, and completely embarrass myself. What a way to spend your one-year anniversary...   Okay, first things first.

S & T Story Review 3

Our next highlighted story is from Mata Nui. It's a favorite of mine, although it unfortunately didn't make it out of the preliminaries. Everyone, get ready for DudeNuva's The Height of His Life!   The story begins with Le-Koro enjoying a temporary peace between Nui-Rama attacks. But the Rama suddenly strike again, catching the Matoran by surprise and collapsing part of the village.   The Matoran are frantic to keep the Rama away, for fear the giant, repulsive insects might knock down the res

Eep!

Goodness gracious!     I'll just fell over backwards and stare at the ceiling now...     Duke Duke: Right.   Well, I'm pleased to accept this award, even though I haven't any idea what it is!     Turakii: Right.   Anyways, just a real fast screenshot of yesterday's messages. I'll make a real entry later.     Good grief...     Turakii

S & T Story Review 2

S&T Contest #2 Review: "Craving For Destiny"   Staying with the Voya Nui theme, the next story we'd like to highlight is Gali_toa_of_the_sea's "Craving For Destiny."   The story begins with Dalu performing her daily chores--mainly, searching for food and water. A nice picture of the bleakness of life on Voya Nui. She notices clouds over the sea, but Velika warns in his obscure way that it may not be the drought-ending rain everyone's been hoping for. Dalu bets her breakfast that the rain w

Whoohoo! It's Larryboy!

The mail truck just came five minutes ago and dropped off an Amazon package and I opened it and it was LarryBoy and the Bad Apple it came two days early WHOOHOO!       *Hyper-ventilates and falls to the floor in ecstasy.* So I'm going to watch it as soon as I finish my chores and schoolwork! Go LarryBoy! Whoo!     Turakii   P.S. Oh yeah, and Bob and Larry Sing the 70's arrived, too---but I'll write more about that later. LarryBoy has arrived!

The Story Of Onions

Long ago, millions of years ago---in caveman times, in fact---a man had an onion. Now, this was no ordinary onion. It was a special onion, with super powers. (But exactly what they were, no one remembers. That part of the legend was never legendized.)   The man and his onion friend went everywhere together. They were the best of friends and appeared on the cover of many caveman magazines. World-famous, they traveled everywhere, giving speeches and signing autographs.   One day, after a long da

S&T Contest #2 Review: "Kazi Verses the Meteors"   If you read through the S&T 2 contest entries, then you know there were so many great stories, it was hard to vote for just one. Because of this, Macku: Toa of Bubbles and I have decided to dedicate some of my blog entries to highlighting a few of our favorite stories. We're going to start with the ones that didn't make it beyond the preliminary voting, and the very first one is Darkwatch's (formerly Raziel: Keyblade Master) "Kazi Vers

'da Poor Cucumber

Larry's hiding today, but I can't imagine why.   Mom was preparing lunch, like she always does about one o' clock. She began by laying out the ingredients, as usual, while Larry watched:         Then Mom began slicing:           By the time she was done, Larry looked positively shocked.           He's still in Mom's vase.         He insists cucumbers are very good to have in vases with silk flowers, and says he's not coming out for a day or two.   So I guess I get the blog to
