 When my soul opened up to music... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous

For the first half of my life, I couldn't relate to music at all. Every Christmas my siblings would get huge stereos, cassette players, cd changers, etc. My face would turn green with envy when I watched them tear away the wrapping paper and get something big and fantastic!

One Christmas around the time that I was twelve, I had had enough. I threw a fit...

"How come I never get a stereo?! Why does everyone else get one?!"

My mother stopped me in my tracks with just one question.

"What do you listen to?"

"I... ... ... ... don't know." Just like that, in that one second, the ugly green beast let out a dying roar as he dissipated into nothingness. I don't listen to music. It's strange how it takes one question to end something that's been building up for years. With that thought, I packed away 'music' as something that would never touch my soul. Years would pass...

Until AQUA's "Barbie Girl". I remember there was a huge deal about AQUA being sued because of their song. It was everywhere! I took the time to listen to the song to find out what the big deal was. I found myself... oddly... enjoying it. The beats, the vocals, the peppiness. I was compelled enough that I bought the album to hear what the rest of the songs were like. I think I still have the album somewhere...

That's what put me on the path to discover Dance/Electronica/Trance/Etc. I can't explain it... The beats, the vocals, the... I don't know... It was like music had finally found a hidden entrance to enter my soul and make me feel alive! - If I could be cheesy for a moment. hehe.

I still remember the surprised look on my parents' face when I asked for a cd player for Christmas. They were hesitant but finally went ahead and bought me my very first stereo with a 5 cd changer on top. Needless to say, I played so much music on that thing that it broke in less than a year...

I guess I'll take this moment to say... Thanks AQUA. image

 Pink Thanksgiving Cactus (Permalink)
Topic: Pictures

A picture of my pink Thanksgiving Cactus.

This site is absolutely awesome in telling you how to tell what kind yours is. As you can tell in the photo, the pointed leaves indicate that this is of a Thanksgiving Cactus even though they're mostly marketed as Christmas Cactus. To get your hands on an actual Christmas Cactus may be tough as you have to rely on friends or family who have had a plant that is decades old before it was all hybridized to the current plants sold in stores today.

 You are... Blue Dragon! (Permalink)
Topic: Quizzes

I've been trying to think about what to blog for today. I found a neat little widget for Presidental Results but unfortunately it doesn't work in this blog. I suppose something non-election might be better to blog about though. It's been hashed to heck and back anyhow... hehe. I'll take a lighter route and post a quiz result instead, which surprises me that it matches a dragon color that I like. That rarely happens.

What Dragon Spirit Resides In You?

Blue Dragon. You have the spirit of a Blue Dragon, you are in simple words unsure. You know you can do things, but do not apply yourself. You often hang out with friends, or other people, but go along with whatever they do. You don't like to interfere, you fear your abilities. You feel alone, but feel it's better that way.You at times feel at war within yourself, you see your problem, but feel surround by your own layers to do anything about it. You are very loyal to your friends, most of them you have never met (internet friends, games, etc.) And have a love for art, helps you through tough times and lets you express yourself, where words fail.

 Anime and the likes... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
I'm not really fond of anime but there's been some shows and movies that have really been fascinating. I never heard of "Adult Swim" on Cartoon Network until a friend told me to switch channels so that I could watch "Case Closed" because he knew I liked Sherlock Holmes. I watched a few episodes and I was hooked.

I started watching InuYasha that came on before Case Closed but when Adult Swim dumped CC, I found that I wasn't interested in InuYasha at all. I was just watching the show only because it was on before CC.

He also got me to watch FullMetal Alchemist. Wow. That was an awesome series. He then encouraged me to watch some movies. Whisper of the Heart, The Cat Returns, Porco Rosso, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, etc...

I really enjoyed them. The stories were nice and all. Then I was encouraged to make that scary step into the endless series... You know, having to watch 7 or 8 DVDs. Oy. I did finally cave and watched.... Last Exile! I finished the final (7th) DVD a few days ago. The first two DVDs were boring but the story was unfolding and I thought it was pretty neat during it all.

Now I'm wondering if I oughta make a leap and pick another series to watch. Hmm...

 Hey! Can I get some peace and quiet here, eh?? (Permalink)

The temperature is still warm around here despite the fact that we've had one freeze that bit the leaves of the tropicals. Bugs, frogs, and lizards are still very much active though.

 30 days of entries? (Permalink)
Ever heard of NaBloPoMo? It means "National Blog Posting Month". I heard about it from a friend and checked it out. I thought it was basically creating a profile and linking it to this blog just for the heck of it but I think I have to actually post there. Eh. Well, I don't see myself succeeding with this though. 30 straight days of random entries? Hm! Let's see what I can post for today before midnight...

There's also Bald Mountain Castle that was updated as well

 Favorite Candy to get on Halloween (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Halloween is tomorrow night! Unfortunately, I'm way too old to go running around in a costume. I suppose I could pretend to be a GIANT with little Jack dangling off my shoulder but I imagine most people will refuse to pass out the candy. *smirks*

My favorite would have to be chocolate. Chocolates of any kind. Hershey kisses, Tootsie rolls, Peanut butter cups, M&Ms, etc.

My least favorites are hard candies such as lollipops and whatnot. Even Tootsie Pops fell under this category.

The candy that I absolutely loathed with a passion and were often tossed out because no one would eat them: black licorice or black jelly beans! Ugh.

 A Random Page (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Deep within the woods of the Sythian Forrest lays the hidden grimoire of Gem Bluestone. Years and years of experiments and spell attempts are jotted in ink upon the decaying pages. The last pair of eyes to have seen this book were Maaginen's before it was closed away from any and all.

Don't go looking for this book. You'll get more than you ever bargained for.

 Do not feed the ogre! (Permalink)
Topic: Active Worlds
Do not feed the ogre!

Active Worlds added a scale feature so that you can alter the size and shape of objects. I played with it some and created this poor Ogre who's looking for something to eat!
