  1. Yeah, I love Bionicle and all, but ten years of obscure canonizations after the end of the story has been frustrating to keep up with. And yeah, I hope Greg lands on his feet. He has brought joy to many people and deserves some for himself.
  2. So let me start my story like any old man with an anecdote that doesn't really go anywhere. I was trawling through my old blog entries trying to find out when I got Pokemon Diamond. I'm playing Brilliant Diamond and I wanted to see if I wrote down anything about my initial playthrough of the game. Turns out, 17 year old me did not see that as something worth recording. Instead I seemed to be a little full of myself. A lot of the blog entries from that time are about my own fame and power on BZP, which in the hindsight of old age looks a bit sad and pathetic. Yeah, I definitely played it up a bit for laughs, but I have to confess that there was a bit of truth behind that. It's hard when you're seventeen and you have all these hopes and aspirations. At school, you're just a regular person, but on the internet, hey, you just make some funny Flash videos and write some silly movie parodies and suddenly you're someone special. Of course it would go to your head, you're still a kid. What do you know about power or fame? How could you possibly use those things responsibly? I wasn't even that powerful or famous. Imagine if I were a real celebrity! Yowza... For the most part, I guess I was well-liked. Certainly if I go onto Bionicle Discord communities, people tell me they have fond memories of some of the things I've done. So maybe I'm overthinking it, maybe this is just the imposter syndrome that we all have to face in adulthood. And things could absolutely be worse. You hear all sorts of stories about people who use their power and influence to abuse and control vulnerable people. I definitely never did anything like that. I just made some blog posts that aged poorly. I don't think I'm a bad person now or that I was a bad person before, I just think it's interesting how my values shifted as I got older. Right now I am 31. I run my own business where I give children speech therapy. “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” That's my new aim in life: to help make other people feel good, not just myself. My power and influence speaks for itself, I don't have to brag about it on the internet, even as a joke. Thank you for reading this. I hope you managed to grow beyond the person you were at seventeen too.

    Come on, guys. The site works just fine. https://i.imgur.com/DyOMfol.png
  4. Mmmm... lava-roasted crab...
  5. Me still want cookies
  6. Me only sign if me get cookies
  7. It makes me happy that people are still making such amazing art for the series. Also if this is what fans can do 20 years after the original, imagine how great Gen 3 might look someday.


    You've gotta get yourself one of those Halloween Bulbasaur things
  9. Also please ignore Hydraxon and Maxilos because even though they are obviously wearing masks, sometimes it's hard to think up new powers for them
  10. Like so many others this year, I won't be with my family this Christmas because of the pandemic. I don't visit often, but you guys are still like an estranged family to me. So merry Christmas everybody.
  11. Okay you’re definitely a Christmas witch. Someone get me an inquisitor.
  12. As well-known storyline expert, I can see you've made the classic mistake of making Matau appear right handed when it is well-established in multiple sources of canon that he is left handed. Don't you remember the book BIONICLE: The Legend of Destiny, Comic #728: The Rise of Tiribomba, or the storyline-driven online game Brakas-Shooter 6000? I thought this was a Bionicle fansite, not amateur hour. Otherwise, everything else looks pretty accurate.
  13. I've been staring at this for five minutes and I still can't understand how you got it in there. Are you sure you aren't a witch? We have ways of finding out, you know.
  14. That's got to be the best pirate I've ever seen.

    The End

    See you for Gen 3, amigo!
  16. What is better: to be born good or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?
  17. No Dexit Reversal, no peace!
  18. Weren't they made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lego Sytstem? They should've been System sets! This is the real controversy...
  19. Don't chicken out now, you really have to commit to this. That means chopping off your hands and inserting these babies at the wrist. Truly then will you be a Toa.

    What an engaging blog entry

    Review: Wildfire

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I really like your theory! I once envisioned a bit of a sequel where Tridax steps in at the last minute and pulls Takua into the prime universe as part of his plan to create an army of Shadow Takanuva. Takua then escapes and gets to examine a world without war and explore what it is to be a survivor. Realistically this will never be written because I just don't have the free time I did in high school.
  22. Fascinating read. 20 years later and I'm still learning stuff. People inside the Mata Nui robot? Kaita switching names? The reason they stopped calling it "biodermis"? Just wild.
