RE:It's evaluation time!
Much thanks Raidra for the last minute edit and review. Now I'm going to have to wait for my sister and this other editor on Facebook to send me a review.
RE2:It's evaluation time!
I'm probably not going to wait for my sister and that other editor's response since they seem rather busy, especially my sister since she has a lot of bureaucratic paperwork to do. The typos you mentioned have been corrected and all I need to do now is wait until the final proof had been approved from Createspace. I still haven't decided if I'm going to have an e-book version of this story though, because that would mean I would have to delete the only public version of this which is on Creepypasta, and that seems rather harsh considering the critiques and positive views about this work. I really don't know, maybe I'll put it up in Trollpasta where my other deleted work is.

The title of this message is a reference to a moment in a cartoon based on Goldilocks and The Three Bears. There was a video made by Saberspark that talks about the Somebody Toucha My Spaghet meme and goes much more in-depth than I care to right now.
While animated films may not get a lot of respect from The Oscars, that doesn't stop animation studios from making great films that I bet will be loved and remembered for years to come, as opposed to most Oscar winners that will be forgotten within a year or two. #SnubTheOscars #VoteWithYourRemote
If I were making an Oscar bait film, I would make a film about people making a film for The Riggy awards (a parody of The Oscar awards) and do everything to make it as Riggy-baity as possible, which they think will guarentee them a Riggy award. By the time the awards roll around, they end up losing to an even more Riggy-baity film called Good Ol' Hollywood, which glorifies the hell out of Hollywood. I bet the Riggy award film will win and the people voting for the film won't see that the film is making fun of them as well as The Oscars in general.
At first, I thought the word "comedienne" was a spelling error until I looked it up on Google and found out that it meant "a female comedian". I'll be honest with you. I've never heard anyone else use this word before when referring to a female comedian.

RE: Story Draft
My sister just returned a review of The Basement of Doom. Here's a quote--"Just read it, liked it better than the flying mouse. There were some parts I didn’t follow and got lost, and some characters I felt would have been better to develop a little more, but you can do that in the next book I guess. Also, I would avoid stereotypical offensive language and use less adjectives and adverbs. Show rather than tell, make the reader part of the action, not removed, unless that was what you’re going for. "Your main characters have seemed really self-centered so far too. Maybe have them be concerned with people other than themselves. Just a thought. Otherwise, liked it better than Treasure Hunters too. Artwork is my favorite so far! "I think I liked the story pace and interaction more in Treasure Hunters, but I think introspective stories are more your jam, as they say. Just need to work on developing the characters, personality, backstory, who and what matters to them, fears, loves, etc." Mmpratt99 deviantart (talk) 05:04, February 4, 2018 (UTC)

Patrick from Spongebob: Somebody keeps stealing my ideas!
But in all seriousness though, it's an idea that hasn't been done all that much before so if you look at it that way, I think people could still bring something new to the table when using this idea for their story.
Also, guess who's just been showcased by Etherbot? That's right! Doom Vroom! Actually, I was the one who was showcased rather recently. From what I've seen, it isn't as long of a showcase compared to some of Ether's other showcases but I think that's because I haven't published a lot of horror stories as well as stories in general. Since my college classes have started up again, I haven't had much time to work on my stories, though I have set a deadline for the fourth episode of Pokemon: Johto Quest, which will roll around in April or May of this year.
I've watched a few spoiler-free reviews of Mother! because I wasn't sure if I wanted to see it or not and from what I've seen, it seemed like it was a really good psychological horror film. After watching the Honest Trailer and reading the Wikipedia article for it, I'm quite reluctant to check it out. Speaking of the Honest Trailer, it was downright hilarious! I think one of the best bits is where the Epic Voice Guy tells someone to move that bus and when the stock image of a bus is moved, crazy stuff from the movie is shown and Epic Voice guy asks to have the stock image of a bus moved back and it actually moves back to its original spot. After I did some research, I found out that "move that bus" is a reference to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I'm not going to lie though, what the director of the film said was really dumb! I'm not even sure what they're trying to say. I mean, some of my favorite content creators may have said some stupid stuff in the past but I could at least understand what they were trying to say.
I'm not sure if I told you this but my talk page is ready to be archived.
Doug Walker (a.k.a The Nostalgia Critic) did an editorial on American Beauty almost three years ago. In the editorial, he tries to examine the film and figure out if it still holds up today. The editorial less than ten minutes long so you won't have to worry about not having enough time to see it should you choose to check it out.
When I was younger, the word "actress" was used a lot more often than it is today and while I think its used has been gradually phased out over the years, it's still used every now and then today.
Reply to "Actor Cheers on Eagles on Plane. Only One Guy Cheers Back" Message
I just discovered this really cute video called The Magikarp Song. It's basically a love song about this girl whose heart was won by a Magikarp. One of the ideas I had for Johto Quest was having Emily pick Magikarp from the prize counter at Peggy's Place arcade in Goldenrod City. The guy at the counter would be confused by her choice, as Magikarp is often seen as a weak Pokemon. Emily says she is sure of her choice and the guy gets a ball containing Magikarp. The Magikarp is released from the ball and it flops around on the counter for a little bit as Emily stares at it and says, "It's so floppy." The guy asks if she wants it but before he can finish what he's saying, Emily interrupts him and yells, "Shut up and take my Thrillbux! (The currency used at Peggy's Place)" She then takes the Magikarp and runs around the place, showing it to other people and saying, "Look! I got a Magikarp!" Unsurprisingly, a lot of people (including kids her own age) are weirded out by this. I'm not sure if I'll use this idea in episode five or not but we'll have to wait and see.
I've never heard of that particular glitch until now. Personally, I think they should've kept it and uped the power boosting effect to twenty or thirty percent. Though, one of the evolution induing trade items called the Metal Coat boosts the power of Steel type moves by twenty percent and induces evolution in Onix when held during trade.
Sometimes when you look at a character article on a certain wiki, you may notice that some of them list a character's blood type, like this one on Red from Pokemon Adventures and this one on Chun-Li from Street Fighter (Warning: Autoplay video is on the page I linked you to here for some reason.) Now for a while, I had no idea why nineties fighting games and manga mentioned the character's blood type. But after reading this article on BBC, I found out that in Japan, blood type is believed to determine someone's temperment and personality. According to the article, type As are sensitive perfectionists and good team players, but over-anxious. Type Os are curious and generous but stubborn. ABs are arty but mysterious and unpredictable, and type Bs are cheerful but eccentric, individualistic and selfish.
Congratulations? Well, I think I may have gotten possom of the month.

In the scene where Emily interacts with the guy at the prize counter, I could have Emily ask him if she can see the female Nidoran and the guy gets a custom made Poke Ball from under the counter. The guy releases the Nidoran from the ball and Emily and the Nidoran stare at each other for a few seconds. The Nidoran then jumps off of the counter and runs towards Eddy, who is pulling on a rope tied to a small basket filled with RageCandyBars. The Nidoran will then rub its nose against Eddy's nose and jump into Eddy's wool. It will then pop out of it and pop back in like the moles in a Whack a Mole game.
Emily finds the Nidoran's actions cute and turns to the guy at the counter and yells, "Shut up and take my Thrillbux!" and holds out the Thrillbux in front of her. The guy asks if she's sure about that and says that the male Nidoran might be a better choice, as he says it can breed with other Pokemon, even after it evolves, unlike its female counterpart. Before he can finish his sentence, Emily grunts as she shoves the Thrillbux in his face and the guy gives her the empty custom made Poke Ball. She then takes out a marker and writes "NI" (which stands for Nina) on the front of the ball and returns Nina to her ball.
So after the whole "Suicide Forest" incident, Logan Paul has once again gotten himself into hot water. This time, he made a video where he tazers dead rats for fun and uploaded it to YouTube. Yup. I couldn't make this up if I tried. To me, this proves that he has learned nothing from the Suicide Forest controversy and that his somewhat flimsy attempts to redeem himself (i.e Making that Be Here Tomorrow video, Donating 1 million dollars to American Suicide Prevention organizations, etc) didn't mean shit.
So yesterday, I decided to go onto The Lost Media Wiki (which is something I haven't done in a while) and found an article about this show called Mary Kay and Johnny. From what I've read, it's considered to be the first American sitcom on national television and aired from 1947 to 1950. Much like how Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were a real life couple that played a fictional couple on televsion, the stars of Mary Kay and Johnny were also a real life couple.

Reply to "Ready Player Bun" Message
In March, a film adaptation of this book called Ready Player One is coming out and is going to be directed by Steven Spielburg. From what I've researched, this is Ernest Cline's (the author of the novel) debut novel that got published when he was thirty nine years old. People seem to be rather split about this book for the most part. Some people either really love it and say it's a love letter to 80's pop culture as well as geek culture and others really hate it and criticise it for its one dimensional characters, over reliance on "tell don't show", and how the story seems to treat the 1980's as the greatest generation in the history of mankind. That is, if Goodreads is anything to go by. There are also a couple of people out there who think the story is just okay like David Popovich a.k.a The Bookworm.
I agree. I'm a big animal lover as well but even I can't get behind PETA. Penn and Teller's Bullshit made an entire episode about the organization and it pretty much sums up my thoughts on PETA.
So just the other day, I was listening to this soundtrack called Selections from Disney's Orchestra Collection, Vol. 2 and it has some really good orchestral covers of classic Disney songs. However, the best track in the collection is the second to last one. Don't worry. I won't spoil what it is though.

Reply to "Pun. James Pun" Message
I think John Hughes movies also had a huge impact on 1980's culture. I mean think about it. Some of his most well known and beloved work, such as the National Lampoon movies, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and Weird Science, came out in the 1980's and to this day, people still quote and make parodies or pay homages to these films, especially The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off. So my guess is that instead of having references to Speilburg films, the movie will have references to John Hughes movies.
I find it interesting that Speilburg doesn't want to have references to his films in the Ready Player One film, even though he's its director. I mean, given how Ready Player One is essentially filled to the brim with references to 1980's culture and he's been a part of so many influential 80's films, it would be very easy to include references to his own films. Instead, he decides to omit them. This to me shows that he's capable of not flaunting his ego, even when an opportunity to do so is given to him on a silver platter, unlike certain people *cough* Logan Paul and Trump *cough*.
So after one of his tweets got to a thousand retweets, The Dom decided to finally review Fifty Shades Darker, as was promised in the tweet. Like his videos on Fifty Shades of Grey, he will be making three seperate videos on Fifty Sahdes Darker. The first video will explain the plot of the book (which you can see here), the second video will be the review of the book, and the third video will be the Lost in Adaptation episode comapring the book to the film. As of this message, the other two videos aren't out yet but when they are released, I'll let you know as soon as I can.
I recently watched this video called "Why I Hate Your Name (Kimi no Na wa)" and the guy in the video explains why he doesn't care for this film in a calm and mature way. Your Name is a very popular and well recieved anime film that was released in 2016 in Japan and 2017 in the US.
e-Book Situation--It's Come to This
- ( I'm afraid I'm going to have to get the The Basement of Doom work deleted. I just asked Draft2Dital about their policy on publishing and I got this response. I quote--"We only added Amazon in November 2017, and that is part of the guidelines they have written into their contract when we signed up with them. If we fail to notice a book is already posted online we get a rather terse rejection back letting us know they won't be accepting the listing as they find it freely available online and have no way to be certain who owns the actual copyrights.
Here is one such example, although I have redacted the book being rejected:
We’re contacting you regarding the following book(s): [BookTitle] by (AUTHOR) (ID:ASIN Number) During our review, we found content inside that is freely available on the web. We don't accept books that have such content as copyrights cannot be ascertained. As a result, we won’t be selling your book(s) on Amazon. Content can be found at wattpad.com. The above was a book rejected by Amazon for being available on Wattpad. Amazon allows you to post excerpts on your blog, or via marketing sites, but posting the entire book online at wattpad or any other site causes them to question the copyrights and they will decline to publish.
There are too many scammers out there that find these books and publish them as their own works. We close at least a dozen accounts a day from scammers who do this on the regular as a way of selling ebooks (rather than writing their own) and wattpad is one of their preferred sites to steal from. I'ts very easy to copy/paste out of wattpad into a word doc and then call it your own original work.
You may have luck submitting your listings directly, but books that are posted online won't be submitted through our service."
- ( Welcome. Yeah, I really wish things were different. I could of just stuck with having a regular book but I really need to get this story out to a wider audience.
Mortis Media the narrator contacted me. He saw I made a sequel to All Too Human, and he wants me to finish the final part of the All Too Human Trilogy so he can make a video dedicated to reading them!

Looking back, I think I got a little too carried away when I included that celebrity pot shot in my last message. On a sidenote, here's this video of a parrot playing peekaboo with a cameraman.
When I was little, I used to love reading Peter Rabbit. I think I might've seen an animated movie adaptation of it as well but I don't remember the exact version. I've read about the new live action movie and I recall hearing about how there was some outrage regarding a scene in which the main character mocks the villain for having an allergy to food. The filmmakers apologized about the whole thing. No matter what your stance is on the situation, I think we can all agree that the movie is still kind of bad.
Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?
Yea. I'm kind of surprised it got any attention at all, but it looks like I'll be working the next month to get it done for him. I have to make it perfect though. His audience is rather large and I wouldn't want to give him sub-part content to work with. This whole working with narrators is pretty new to me.

So this may sound a bit controversial but I don't think Song of The South is as racist as some people make it out to be. So one of the main complaints against this movie seems to be that it portays slavery in a positive light. Well, for me, Song of The South doesn't take place during slavery. If you look at the type of clothing that the women wear in the film, it seems to have a striking resembalance to 1870's fashion. The clothing the field hands wear also resembles clothing that sharecroppers would wear. Also, in the film, Uncle Remus is able to leave the plantation he lives at whenever he wants without having to seek the owner's permission. Based on these clues, it's implied that the film takes place during Reconstruction, a time where slavery was no longer a thing. Now while Reconstruction had its own fair share of problems, it doesn't make sense to to me to accuse a film of portraying slavery as positive when the film doesn't even take place in a time where slavery was a thing.
Another complaint against this film seems to be that Uncle Remous is a racist caricature. To some extent, I kind of agree. I mean, the way Remous speaks does seem to be pretty stereotypical. However, aside from that, I don't really think this complaint is legit. Now Song of The South came out in 1946 and during this time, a lot of black characters (not all but a lot) were potrayed as loud, over the top, in your face, lazy, and/or really dumb, as seen in things like Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarves, Scrub Me Mama with a Boogie Beat, All This and Rabbit Stew, and some of the earlier Tom and Jerry cartoons. But Uncle Remous is the opposite of that. He's quiet, laidback, happy, optimistic, and very smart. So if anything, Uncle Remous is actually BREAKING the stereotype of his day. Also, on a side note, the guy who played Uncle Remous (James Baskett), was given an Honorary Academy Award, making him the first black male performer to receive an Oscar.
Also, while Disney never released Song of The South on home video in the U.S, this doesn't automatically mean they did it because they thought it was a racist film. Why? Well, they made a ride based on the film (Splash Mountain) and I believe several characters from the film (specifically B'rer Rabbit, B'rer Fox, and B'rer Bear) have appeared in several other pieces of Disney media such as Kinect Disneyland Adventures and The House of Mouse TV series. The Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah song has also been included on several Disney sing a long videos. If the reason for not releasing the movie in the U.S was really because of racism, there would be no Splash Mountain, the appearances of the animated Song of The South characters would be confined to just the movie and nothing else, and Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah wouldn't be featured on any of their sing a long videos. Sorry to babble on like that but I felt like I really needed to get that off my chest.
In regards to the episode of Jessie, I think the rest of the characters mocking the one kid with allergies could've actually worked. So at first, the characters, except Jessie, mock the allergy kid (who I think was called Stewart) and is seen as a overdramatic coward. However, as the episode goes on and the characters continue to mock him until he eventually snaps and eats something he's allergic to just to shut them up. After he does so, his allergies are triggered and the actual symptoms of an allergic reaction are shown on-screen. The characters, especially the kids, are terrified by what's going on and Jessie calms the kids before calling 911. As she is on the phone with 911, the operator asks if Stewart has an epi-pen. Jessie says he does and rushes to retrieve it. As per the operator's instructions, she injects Stewart with the epi-pen and they paramedics eventually arrive on scene. Thankfully, Stewart is alive and recovering in the hospital. The other characters visit him and apologize for their actions and the kids give him gifts like Get Well cards and whatnot. One of the kids also gives him a big bag of gluten-free pretzels (I'm not sure what Stewart's other allergies were except the gluten).

Alternate Title Message: Really Playa One?
So whenever I go to a thrift store, Walmart, or the now rarely seen video store, I like to buy DVDs that are a little unconventional and strange. A long time ago, I bought two similar yet different DVDs at two different times. One of these DVDs was called 270 Classic Cartoons and I got it from Walmart when I was vacationing in Cape Cod back in 2014. The other was called 180 Classic Cartoons and I bought back in the summer of 2016 from my local MovieStop, which was having a Going Out of Buisness sale at the time. Now both of these DVDs contain a large collection of Public Domain cartoons that were made before the 1960's or 70's and are spread out over the span of two or three disks. Now some of the cartoon series that these collections include are Popeye, Fleisher Superman, a few Betty Boop cartoons, and even Felix the Cat. However, the collections also contain some more obscure stuff like this anime-esque adaptation of Snow White and a few episodes from The Three Stooges animated series (yes, this is a real thing). Now because a certain amount of the cartoons are from a time where certain things weren't considered as offensive, both the back of the box and in the logos montage you see before the main menu have a disclaimer that's a bit similar to the one you've described except this one didn't have Whoopi Goldberg narrating it.
I found this interesting article today about how Studio Ghibli stood up to Harvey Weinstien with a samurai sword. Yes you read that right! Studio Ghibli had the balls to go up against Harvey Motherfucking Weinstien! I would tell you more about it but I think the article does a better job explaining it than I ever could.
I remember reading about the whole "Flash Mountian" thing on one of the articles I read about Splash Mountian. I think there was even a Simpsons episode where one of the characters takes part in the phenomenon.
There is one major plot hole I discovered while thinking about Ready Player One. Okay so Ready Player One takes place in a version of Earth that has been in the midst of an energy crisis due to the depletion of fossil fuels. Well if that's the case, how the hell is a thing like the OASIS able to be constantly powered without an issue? I mean, the thing uses visors and gloves so you could argue it might be portable and therefore doesn't need to constantly suck up electricity from the wall. However, even if it's portable, it would most likely use a rechargable battery that occasionally needs to be plugged into the wall for a certain amount of time in order to obtain a full charge.
Crossing my fingers these can live up to the original.
I don't know if you want to read the 2nd and third part of All Too Human, but just in case I'll link them to you since I've released them.

Reply to "Disney: Be Prepaaaaaaaaared--- To Have The Villain Song Removed"
So last week, my desktop computer stopped working. I was browsing Twitter when I suddenly got the Blue Screen of Death. I told my dad about it and he said to unplug my computer but then my brother came in and told me to unplug it after the physical memory dump process finished. After my dad and brother had some back and forth, I just unplugged my computer before it finished dumping the physical memory. Well, when I went to turn it back on, the screen was blank and my computer started beeping loudly a few times. What's strange about this is that I only got the computer in April of 2016 so it wasn't like it was on its last legs or anything.
I don't think it had gotten a virus or something because when I ran the last deep scan on it with my Anti-Virus software last Tuesday, it didn't pick up anything unusual. My mom's old laptop had the same problem and when she brought it to a computer store, they said that the problem was caused by a crapped out motherboard (though not in that exact way). Also, when I looked through the holed opening in the back of my computer, I noticed that it was a bit dusty and had some cobwebs on some of the parts. In other words, I think the problem was caused by a crapped out motherboard and an excessive amount of dust and cobwebs. I'm hoping that someone will take it to the computer store and have a professional look at it. I'm hoping that the memory is still good because I have a lot of stuff on there that I wasn't able to back up before hand.
"The one cartoon I didn't like from the DVD was a cartoon about some guy going on a vacation and having a bad time. It was probably shorter than the average SpongeBob episode, but my gosh, it was so mind-numbingly boring that it seemed to go on forever." The premise for the cartoon sounds like it could've had a lot of potential to be really funny with the right talent behind it. I mean, if this premise was given to the writers of a show like Animaniacs, they could've made it work. For example, the episode could be about The Warner Siblings working at a hotel or something and this guest starts treating them badly like maybe he starts making unreasonable requests and/or berates them excessively. Then, during the guy's stay, The Warner Siblings could give him a taste of his own medicine in their own wacky ways.

I recently found this video called 21 Times "The Golden Girls" Were Straight-Up Savage. Don't worry! It's not a poorly made countdown video. It's just a compilation of various clips from the show. To be honest, I got just as much satisfaction out of this near ten minute video as I would've gotten from watching a full episode. I think what makes this show work is the timing, the talent from the actors, and the delivery.
When I was in second or third grade, my class was working on an assignment about what kind of games we would want to add to the Winter Olympics. The thing I chose for the assignment was snowball fights. Well, guess what? It turns out that the Japan Snow Battle Federation wants to make snowball fights an Olympic sport. From what I understand, the Winter Olympics don't seem to get as much attention as the Summer Olympics at least in the United States anyway so maybe adding Snowball Fights to the Winter Olympics might get more people to watch it.

So Netfilx released their live action adaptation of Full Metal Alchemist and it's not very good. I would explain why but I think Mother's Basement did a much better job than I ever could, especially since I'm not very knowledgeable about F.M.A in the first place. The only good thing the film has going for it is that Lust is just as beautiful as she was in the anime. In other words, there is literally no reason to watch this film over the actual anime series.
Good news! Coco won Best Animated Feature! Woo! Suck it Boss Baby film! While I don't fully forgive The Oscars due to the snubbing A Silent Voice, I'm at least happy that another really good animated feature won. Also, I think I predicted that this film would win a while ago because Disney almost always wins Best Animated Feature.

Yeah I noticed that O.G Full House has had its fair share of bad acting from children, espeically from Nicky and Alex (the blonde twins who people say were played by the same kids who played Zack and Cody when in actuality, Nicky and Alex were played by a different set of kids).

Goodreads has listings for fiction and non-fiction books from what I understand. For example, if you're looking for non-fiction works like Zoobooks for example, they got it. The listings give you information about the book and also have reviews and a list of places you can buy them. Here's the Goodreads page for A Silent Voice Volume One as an example of what I'm talking about.
While I understand that different countries have different standards for what's considered acceptable to show in a kid's show, the rice ball/jelly doughnut thing in Pokemon still makes no sense. Like, why not let Brock call it a rice ball? I mean, the words "rice ball" aren't considered offensive in the states nor do they have any religious meaning behind them so what gives? Also, why not just edit it out the rice ball in the episode and replace it with an actual jelly doughnut if that's what you're going to have Brock call it? They replaced a rice ball with a goddamn sandwich in another dubbed episode of Pokemon so I know they're capable of reanimating stuff. Ugh!
So about a week ago, the Crash Course YouTube channel put out a video titled "Lost in Translation: Crash Course Film Criticism #7". I meant to tell you about it earlier but I forgot. Anyway, this series isn't hosted by John or Hank Green but I still checked it out because Lost in Translation is one of my favorite films of all time along with the Disney animated Alice in Wonderland film. From what I've seen, it's pretty interesting for the most part as the host talks about different themes that this movie has. However, at the end, it gets kind of weird. Not good. Not bad. Just weird.
If I made a commercial for the 2017 Ghost in The Shell movie, it would probably go a little something like this:
(Announcer: If you loved Scarlett Johanson's ass in Lost in Translation [shows the ScarJo panty shot from Lost in Translation], then you'll love her ass in... Ghost in The Shell! [shows a shot of ScarJo's ass from the Ghost in The Shell movie] Shoving her butt into the camera in March of 2017.)

I just watched the Zooks video again and it's just as funny as the first time I saw it. I also watched a few more videos by the person (which I haven't done in a while) who made the Zooks video and I think they were just as funny.
So the Ready Player One movie is going to be coming out in a couple of weeks from now. A little while ago, there were posters made for the film that pay tribute to several movie such as Back to The Future, The Goonies, The Matrix, Blade Runner, and Beetlejuice. Apparently, Warner Brothers is taking credit for them if the article I linked you to is anything to go by. If that's the case, that's kind of strange because they only look slightly better than something that was made by an amatur photoshop artist who only had an almost non-existant budget to work with. I know it sounds kind of harsh but these are posters that are coming from Warner Brothers, one of the biggest movie studios in the United States, so I kind of expected them to look a little better than this. I also found this tweet that has a video of a guy making fun of Ready Player One in song form.
There was an episode of the Goosebumps TV Series called Say Cheese and Die where Ryan Gosling (the guy from La La Land) played either the main character or one of the other characters. The late Annette Funicello was once a Mouseketeers on the original Mikey Mouse Club. In The All-New Mickey Mouse Club show, which first aired back in 1989, a lot of the Mouseketeers, such as Tony Lucca, Chasen Hampton, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Nikki DeLoach, Keri Russell, and Ryan Gosling, on this show would eventually gain international stardom.

Some of my favorite movie posters include this one for Young Frankenstein, this possibly fan made poster for Lost in Translation, this poster for a film called The Rocketeer, and this one for the 50th Anniversary of Fantasia. If people like a movie poster enough or they think it's of good enough quality, they will want to buy a movie industry sized version and hang it on their wall.
In the trailer for Ready Player One, I also noticed a moment that shows Tracer from Overwatch and my girl Chun-Li side by side. The screenshot is slightly blurry but I think you can still see the characters just fine. In the screenshot, you'll notice that while Tracer's face looks decent, Chun-Li's face looks really silly and I don't think that was the intention. Also, here's an excerpt from Ready Player One.
Now one of my favorite films of all time next to the 1951 Alice in Wonderland film is Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I bring this up because, like Ready Player One, this film is filled to the brim with Disney and Warner Brother's references and cameos and whatnot. However, what makes Roger Rabbit work is that the live action and animation is blended beautifully together and it feels like the animated characters are really in the real life enviroments if that makes sense. Also, none of the plot points (as far as I remember) were heavily dependent on specific things from Disney or Warner Brothers and was instead based around tropes of the golden age of animation. Not only that but they also managed to include adult humor without having it come off as cringy and the villian (Judge Doom) manages to be both funny and scary at the same time.
"That made me take issue with the premise of the film. Those posters say, "Fight for a better reality." How? You're just playing video games. It would be one thing if his main goal were to find the secret egg so he could get money to improve his community, or if he did a lot of activism/charity work and then played video games, but from what I've seen he just really likes video games. There's creating a relatable hero and then there's creating...what do you call this? Since he's the hero, we can trust he'll use the secret egg company money to help others, but still, we're supposed to be rooting for someone who just wants to play video games all the time."
I'm hoping that the film version of RPO will add some meat to the story because in my opinion, the book seems rather lacking in terms of depth and whatnot. For example, in the book, a lot of the characters, especially the main ones, are as cardboard as you can get. Wade is your typical nerd that's overweight and not good with girls, Art3mis is Wade's thicc (curvy) spunky love interest who's really a thin person in real life and nothing else, Aech (or as I like to call them Eck) was a muscly white man except for that one chapter where they were a black female lesbian before turning back into a man, and the two Japanese characters (Daito and Shoto) are just... Japanese otaku hermits and nothing else. Now as you might already know, I'm a huge character person and some of my favorite story genres are Coming-of-Age and Slice of Life that heavily focus on the characters. While I don't need to know every single little detail about every single character to find them well written and/or interesting, I do expect a bit more depth than this story provides. Also, since this story doesn't seem to have that much going for it, the least it can do is provide us interesting and somewhat complex characters for us to get invested in.
Here's this video about why printers and ink cartridges suck. That is all.

So last night, I watched an episode of this show called World's Strictest Parents. The basic premise of the show goes like this according to Wikipedia. Two unruly teenagers are sent to live with a strict host family either locally or abroad for a week in an attempt to change their attitudes, outlooks, and behaviours in general. During the week they receive an impact letter from their real parents with a list of issues they should try to resolve. In the episode I watched, the two teens (a boy named Wesley and a girl named Tamsin) were staying with this same sex couple in New Jersey for a week. By the end of the week, Tamsin was still having emotional problems so instead of sending her back at the end of the week, the same sex couple decided to let Tamsin stay with them for a little while longer. Now World's Strictest Parents is a "reality" show, which tend to be staged most of the time, though I'm not sure if that was the case with this episode or the show in general. Regardless, this moment right here managed to be a tearjerker for me and I think it's because the couple throughout the episode are strict but fair, kind, and calm as well.
I also think it's because in this show, some of the members of the host families the teens stay with can be really nasty. For example, there was an episode where two teens are sent to India and the father of the host family unjustly flew off the handle and got physical with the teen who looked like Rufio from Hook. I mean, I know the girl wasn't acting that much better but still. I'll just link you to the clip from TrendCrave's video about the strictest parents of what I'm talking about because I'm not sure if you'd want to watch an entire episode with that jerk father guy.
Normally I'm not a fan of prank videos but I recently found this video where a few members of this class at this university sing an epic song about an engineering exam to the tune of Gangsta's Paradise. They even bring in a mini orchestra at one point.
I'll be honest. Unlike the 50 Shades series, I can understand the appeal of Ready Player One. The pacing of the book is brisk and one could see the book as so over the top and dumb that it's awesome much like an Arnold Schwarzenegger film such as Commando. But at least with those Arnold Schwarzenegger films, they didn't overly rely on pop cultural references to other things to be so dumb they're awesome movies. Also, at one point in the marketing for the Ready Player One film, it was touted as (and I'm not kidding here) "Ernest Cline's Holy Grail of Pop Culture" with no hint of sarcasm whatsoever.
Thank you very much, Miss Raidra.
I see you've obtained one as well. Congratulations to you too.

So a new Honest Trailers video came out yesterday and this time, it focuses on every Wes Anderson movie. I gotta say, it's one of the funniest ones yet. Speaking of Wes Anderson, I can't wait to see The Isle of Dogs movie. It's basically a stop motion film much like Fantastic Mr. Fox but that's all I know about it since I don't want to expose myself to spoilers and whatnot.
After Jarod Leto's take on The Joker failed to impress audiences, he decides to abandon that getup and travel back to 1950's Japan and become the whitest Yakuza member in the history of the country in 2018's The Outsider! It's a film made for Netflix and from what I've been hearing about it, it has been getting negative reception so far. From what I understand, it's often been criticised for having a super underdeveloped and cliched main character played by Leto himself, painfully slow pacing, and that it feels like several other much better movies cobbled together.
Have you ever wanted to see the Someone Toucha My Spaghett meme combined with The Gorillas? No? Well you got it anyway.
Now I will present you with a random excerpt and I want you to guess if it's from Ready Player One or if it was made up by me. Okay. Here's the excerpt:
"I made a big entrance onto the battlefield in my super ultra cool flying DeLorean that I decked out with the Ghostbusters Logo, an artificially intellegent computer named KITT, a matching Knight Rider scanner above the DeLorean's grill, some weird component that let the DeLorean go through solid matter, and personalized plates that read Ecto-88 (that's the plate number from Ghostbusters). I then turned the radio all the way up and the Magnum P.I theme, Rush's Tom Sawyer, and The Facts of Life theme started blaring at the same time. Suddenly, the four old ladies (Dorothy, Blance, Rose, and Sophia) from The Golden Girls (one of Halliday's favorite situational comedies which was about old ladies living together in Florida) appeared and hung off of the sides of the DeLorean as the fired their proton packs (that's the weapon the Ghostbusters use to capture and defeat ghosts) at hordes of enemies."
The Holy Grail comment appears at about 1:25 in the video. I thought I included the time in the video link but I guess I must've given you one without a set time.

I know I've been talking about Ready Player One way too much and this may be the last time I bring it up until the movie comes out but I recently watched this video that just tears RPO a new one. I don't agree with everything the presenter says, like I don't really understand how the book is attacking women, but other than that, he did a real good job.
Yup! You got it right! The excerpt was not from the book, though if it was, it would probably fit in there perfectly. Also, I was scrolling througha page on Goodreads that had various quotes/excerpts from RPO and came across this particular quote that's presumably said by Wade:
“I was watching a collection of vintage '80s cereal commercials when I paused to wonder why cereal manufacturers no longer included toy prizes inside every box. It was a tragedy, in my opinion. Another sign that civilization was going straight down the tubes.”
So I actually did some research and found this article that answers Wade's question as to why there's no prizes in cereal boxes anymore. Basically, according to the article, kids today are growing up with more technology like gaming consoles, computers, and smartphones and whatnot. Because of this, they might be more interested in something like a code for an online game rather than a cheap plastic toy that will break in a day or two. Also, online games seem to be less expensive to make than plastic toys and last way longer.
Lol! That trailer was funny as hell. I love how it incorporates a lot of actual Wes Anderson tropes and uses them to create a plausible looking trailer that seems like it could be for an actual Wes Anderson film that also satirizes his work at the same time if that makes sense.
It seems that Isle of Dogs is getting a wide release. I looked on the website for one of my local movie theatres and it's not coming to that specific theatre until April 13, which is strange because Wikipedia said it was coming out today in the United States, though that might only apply to certain theatres.
I'll be honest. I'm not a big fan of online advertising because to me, nobody seems to get it right. Sometimes the ads are either placed in areas like the middle of an article which can be distracting, other times you get those really loud and obnoxious autoplay ads that play even when you don't click on them, and other times there are so many ads on a site, that the site itself is practically unusable. Oh and if you click an ad accidentally or click on an ad that looks like it's part of the actual website, then there's a chance your device could get a virus. This is why I never browse the web without something like Ublock Origin.

Ah okay. I apologize. I must've misremembered or misunderstood what he said. My bad lol.
So I recently finished reading a two and a half chapter long preview for the first Percy Jackson book on Google Books and I enjoyed what I read so far. For one thing, while the book is aimed at a younger audience, specifically preteens, I never felt that the book talked down to its audience. Since I've only read the first two and a half chapters, I don't really have anything else to say. However, I'm thinking of saving some money to buy the full book on Amazon some time in the future. I've seen a few listings for the book on Amazon that set the price of the book at under ten dollars if you buy it used, which is what I'm most likely going to do.
Speaking of Percy Jackson, I've seen a few videos about their movie adaptations, including the Lost in Adaptation episodes The Dom did on The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters, and it's hard to believe just how badly the movies butcher the source material. WARNING! The L.I.A episodes have spoilers for the books in them. The only good thing about the movies is how they handled Grover, one of Percy's friends from Yancy Academy. In the books, Grover is a timid young man who has trouble standing up for himself and may come off as a bit whiny at times. In the movies, Grover is a confident black guy who falls into the "Black Best Friend/Comic Relief" archetype a bit. Despite this, his performance is a lot of fun to watch and he's easily the best part of the movies. If you see a one point out of ten or a one star review for the films, Grover is most likely the reason the films got that one point/star.
Here's a fun fact about me. I own a lot of books. Despite this, I don't own a proper bookshelf to display them on at both my mom and dad's house. At my mom's house, some of my books are in a box under my bed and others are stored on tiny shelves on these tall night stand things. At my dad's house, I only have a few books kept there and most if not all of them are on top of my printer that I almost never use. I'm not upset about it. I just find the whole thing kind of funny if I'm being honest. I'd like to get one for either my birthday or Christmas but I'm not sure if that will happen.
"Another sign that civilization was going straight down the tubes." ~ Wade Watts: Undercover Stereotypical Elderly Man. Throughout history, various people have claimed that various things were going to be the downfall of society. However, when you really think about, how many times has somebody made a claim like "X is going to be the downfall of society," and was proven right? Because from what I understand, that has never happened in the history of mankind. Ever.
Shapeshifting Party Entertainers actually sounds like a neat idea for a series. Maybe they could be mastering their skills as the series goes on. Like, when the series starts out, they can only shapeshift if they have an image of the thing they want to turn into and even when they do, it comes out looking like those Ditto-esque transformations. But as the series progresses, they start to rely on the images less and less and they are able to shapeshift into more realistic looking things.
Reply to "Percy Jackson Deserves Better!" Message
Fair point. I guess that the phrase has been used so many times for seemingly harmless things like video games, that it's a little hard to take seriously, even when it's used for something that's a tiny bit more reasonable like, "The lack of quality education will be the downfall of society."
So yesterday, I picked up a copy of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone at the local thrift store for about one dollar. It's a little worn from use but it's not falling apart easily so I think I got a good deal there.
I've actually been looking at what libraries the book is avaliable at in my state and it seems like a lot of them carry it, though I'm not sure which libraries have the book currently on the shelves and which ones have loaned out their copies.
From what I understand, there are more Percy Jackson books in the main series besides Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters. For example, book three is called The Titan's Curse, book four is called The Battle of the Labyrinth, and book five is called The Last Olympian. However, only Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters were adapted into movies. I think the Percy Jackson book series should be given another chance to be adapted because I do feel like it could rival the success of the Harry Potter film series if put in the right hands. I think one of the biggest problems of the Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters film adaptations is that it seems like the film makers aren't interested in telling the author's story and made countless changes to the story, regardless if they made sense or not. Because of this, I think that if the Percy Jackson series were to get adapted again, I think it would be a good idea to either bring the original author on board or bring people on board who have a good amount of knowledge about the series and care about it deeply.
In the Goosebumps book "Attack of the Mutant", the villian called The Masked Mutant had the ability to turn into anything as long as it was solid. If he turned into anything liquidy, it would be game over for him. So while I do think a series about shapeshifters could incorporate battles between... well... shapeshifters... there would need to be some kind of limit on their powers.

I have some bad news. The HeintzVO YouTube channel (the one who made the really awesome Catcher in The Rye audiobook) has been terminated for copyright infringement. The claims are most likely false and made by some large company who has nothing better to do. UGH!
So yesterday, I went to see Coco at my local theater and one of the best parts was that they didn't play that 25 minute "short" Olaf film. Also, the film is steeped heavily in Mexican culture but I still think that you can enjoy it, even if you aren't that knowledgeable on the culture. Also, it seems like the film has a lot of fun with this fact. It was a bit predictable at times but it wasn't enough to ruin the film for me. That's all I'm going to say about it because if I said anything else about it, I'd be dipping into spoiler territory.
Well, it's here. The Ready Player One movie is out. From what I've read, it's only slightly better than the book. The actors try their best to bring charm to what are essentially cardboard cutout characters, which makes them a bit more tolerable, and there are visual gags to replace some of the pop culture references that weren't included in the movie. It also seems to be more tounge in cheek than the book. Though the movie still has problems such as the overeliance on pop cultural references and the scarcity of character development. In other words, the source material is so bad, even Speilburg couldn't make it into something great.

Hi~ First things first, about 'The Duel': I lolled at the descriptive line for Wayne Bruce that called him "the bat man". It's also heartwarming how open they are with each other about some of their mannerisms (having weapons at their bedsides and admitting to being figure out on stuff). The duel itself was fun! I enjoyed the level of strategy that both combatants applied to it and how they kept thinking one step ahead of each other (so both were basically thinking 20 steps - not that much, but still - ahead of what was actually happening at any given time). It was a good read, but then, hero vs hero stuff is almost always awesome.
How have you been? I hope things have been okay for you and your family. I, myself, have been busy working even longer shifts and job hunting; no luck on that front. I started writing again yesterday and I believe it was for the first time of the year DX Other than that things are same-ish, but its gotten rather grating. You know, things not changing at all in a discernible positive direction. Things could be worse though.
- Haha. I've been working a lot, and between problems with my insurance company (who decided they made a mistake and had been charging me too little and needed to up it to $480 a month) and either my bank or work misplacing funds (seriously, I'm missing between $700 and $1200. I need to go back through my bills to find out how much exactly) that should be going to me, collapsing into a pizza doesn't seem like a bad choice in the slightest. I am sorry to hear about your mom having a rough time again, but I am really glad that she has a lot of people to support her!
- On the brighter side of things, I have been taking a free punctuation and grammar class on Coursea in an attempt to get better at comma and semicolon placement. I've been acing all of my quizzes so far, so here's hoping that I have really improved and that my writing will be all the better for it. With all of this funding nonsense, I think I am just going to go back to college to major in English in the hopes of being able to break into the field and do some freelance work; maybe even will eventually work my way into authorship. There isn't any work to be had where I am at, or at least none that I can get into that I like, so this seems like my best option now. I often feel like I'm in a terrible soap opera, "What new development will plague our beloved Vroom next week? Stay tuned!" XD I just have to break out of that and then things will be better~ Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 00:08, April 5, 2018 (UTC)
- I looked into it and it just turned out that the billing period for a couple of things (like insurance) transitioned into a different month than I had realized; therefore, everything was correct. I guess I was just expecting something else bad to happen and was looking for fault where there wasn't any. I wonder how often things happen like they do in that Urban Legend?
- I just hope that I am actually using the proper grammar and am not doing things wrong/more wrong, lol.
- There is only one thing that so many transitions could mean: "By gum, there's my supposed-to- be dead niece! That means she's the murderer!"
- I'm interested, but it'll take me a while to be able to get back to you on it.

So apparently, one of the songs from Disney's Mulan called "I'll Make a Man Out of You" has an entire Wikipedia page dedicated to it. Well that's something I didn't expect to exist. Not only that but I'll Make a Man Out of You is also the name of a World War One recruiting song.
The last time I went to Washington D.C was during Spring Break of 2012 and even then I didn't attend the Cherry Blossom festival and I haven't been back to D.C since. In other words, I haven't attended any Cherry Blossom Festivals in my life. I should've clarified that in my last message. Whoops!
There's one Disney remake that I hear is better than the original. That film is none other than the 2016 version of Pete's Dragon. From what I've read, it seems to improve the issues of the original film while at the same time doing its own thing. I'd like to see the movie whenever I get the chance.
Have you ever heard of this channel called NHK Blends? It's basically a channel where they do covers of American songs in a Japanese style.

So I have a question related to piracy. Let's say someone uploads a full version of something like a movie or song to the internet but the piece of media in question is considered to be lost and there isn't any other documented copies in the world. Let's also say that the uploader of this hypothetical piece isn't making any money off of it or claiming it as their own work. Would that be considered piracy or would that be an exception to the rule?
Speaking of Lost Media, did you know that there's a partially lost anime series of Little Women? It was basically a television series that came out in 1981 and was an adaptation of a book called Little Women, which was originally published from 1868 to 1869. The book is about four hundred and forty nine pages long if Goodreads is anything to go by and the first Fifty Shades of Grey book is about five hundred and fourteen pages long according to Google. Why do I mention the page count of these two books? Because even though Little Women is shorter than Fifty Shades by about sixty five pages, you get a lot more story and character development from the former than you do the latter. Boy I really went off on a tangent there, didn't I?
So there's this movie coming out called Book Club and it stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steamedhams, oh I'm sorry Steenburgen. Guess what plays a part in the plot? That's right! Fifty Shades of Grey! Its role in the film, as far as I can tell, is that it kicks off the plot of the film from the information I was able to find.
Hello Raidra, I hope you're doing well and I also hope that your mother doing okay! Do you possibly have any leftover Easter candy? I was thinking you could make it into a milkshake, or possibly put it with some ice cream, maybe even a cake perhaps? Nevertheless, I hope everything is going great with you and your mother !

So on Friday, I watched Jesus Christ Superstar Live that was stored on the DVR at my mom's house. For the most part, I thought it was pretty good. The people playing the villians and the costumes for them were easily the best part of the show. The guy playing Judas was pretty good too. But he'll never top Carl Anderson (the guy who played Judas in the 1973 version of J.C.S) who I think is the best Judas ever. However, the live audience just couldn't stop cheering and at times, it made it hard to hear what the performers were saying. If I'm being honest, I don't think any other rendition will match up to the '73 version. For me, it's just a perfect version. It has a perfect cast, perfectly executed soundtrack, perfect performances, etc. Don't think my words speak loud enough? Well here's a few songs, such as Heaven on Their Minds, What's the Buzz, This Jesus Must Die, and Simon Zealotes, that show off this rendition's awesomeness.
Yeah I can't believe it was a real movie either. It seems like a live action version of one of those fake movie trailers you'd see on a show like The Simpsons, Family Guy or South Park. Also, out of all the books they could've chose for the characters to read and kick off the plot, why 50 Shades of Grey? Is it because the target demographic for the book is middle aged ladies who want tame porn? Will this be part of the 50 Shades Cinematic Universe where we find out that 50 Shades of Grey was written by Anna Steele in this movie and is therefore a sequel to Fifty Shades Freed?
I'm not sure if you know this but there's a fourth and fifth Fifty Shades book called Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian and Grey: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian. If you couldn't tell already, these are basically the Fifty Shades books told from Christian's perspective. However, these books, especially the former, have been heavily criticised for being too similar to the O.G Fifty Shades books. The best way I can describe these books is that they feel like beat for beat retellings of the original books except that the main character is a goddamn psychopathic billionare who never paid attention in his BDSM 101 College class instead of a bland as a tofu and styrofoam sandwich on white bread college student. Now telling a familiar story from a different character's perspective has a lot of potential to be interesting and even unique if done right. But as you can tell, that's not what we get from the "50 Shades but It's Christian Grey Making Steamed Hams" series.

At the end of the credits for the Book Club movie, there should be a scene where Anna Steele is dressed like Nick Fury and goes up to the book club crew and says, "I'm putting together a team and I want you ladies to join" and one of the book club members will be like "What's it called?" and Anna Fury is like "The Avengeneers" and then another book club member will be like "What's our mission?" and Anna Fury will respond with "Kill. Christian. Grey!" and then when one of the other members of the book club asks why, she says "Because he's doing the same thing that he did to me to another girl". Then the scene will end.
The only way a live action Dora film would work is if it was just one long episode of the show that was under two hours long and made the animal characters animated with Roger Rabbit esque quality. When I was little, I wasn't really a fan of Dora. I mean I didn't hate the show or anything but it just wasn't something I was too crazy for.
"The talk about different perspectives reminded me of a story years ago about a book which was a retelling of Gone with the Wind told from the perspective of a slave." I can just imagine the person who wrote the book going to publish it and someone stopping them and saying, "Don't publish that book! You'll be commiting Copyright Infringement if you do!" and then the person who wrote the book being like, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn".
Hi ! I'm sorry to hear your mother is still having health issues, I hope she continues to make a great recovery! I actually have heard of the Magic shell, it's pretty nice to put over ice cream and have it get a nice outer shell, if they have a strawberry variety, I may try that one! I do hope your mother keep doing better, I'm glad to hear that you're doing okay as well ! Luigifan100 22:33, April 26, 2018 (UTC)

In one episode of Drake and Josh (one of my favorite shows of all time), Drake, Josh, and some other recurring characters get stuck in Drake and Josh's house due to a heavy rainstorm. In the episode, one of the characters called Crazy Steve, is watching Dora The Explorer on the crankable TV. As he watches it, he yells at Dora and criticises her for failing to find a bananna tree that was not that far from her. At one point, he says "You call yourself an Explora?" which isn't included in this clip unfortunatly. Also, excuse the potato-like quality of the Crazy Steve clip but it was the best quality version of the scene I could find.
My brother and I are planning on seeing Avengers: Infinite War tomorrow since he has the day off from work and doesn't have anything else to do. After not being too thrilled with the Black Panther movie, I'm hoping that Infinite War will be better.
So Hank Azaria (the voice of Apu from The Simpsons) recently stepped down from voicing the character. There's a lot of context behing this and I think PieGuyRulz does a great job explaining it and the controversy surrounding Apu in his review of The Simpsons episode "No Good Read Goes Unpunished". Here's my take on the controversy.
When you really take a look at the cast of characters in The Simpsons, most if not all of them are in some form or another are stereotype or caricatures. The best examples I can think of are Groundskeeper Willie, Cletus, Bumblebee Man, and Comic Book Guy. Yet the only character who is getting called out for being a stereotype or caricature is Apu. To me, it's absolutely ridiculous and unfair! Like why does Apu get thrown under the bus while every other character gets off Scott Free? Well it might have something to do with the fact that a short documentary was made by this guy who doesn't like Apu called The Problem With Apu that came out back in November of 2017 and how The Simpsons responded to it in the No Good Read episode. Now I don't have a problem with the guy not liking the character. What I do take issue with is the arguments used to back up his opinion and how he barely attempts to give the people who disagree with his stance a chance to make their case.
Yesterday, I was able to organize the bookshelf I got a couple or so weeks ago and put some of the books I own on it. When I get more free time, I'll pull out some of my other books that are on another shelf in my room and put them on the new bookshelf, though I'm not sure how many of them will fit on the shelves.
I'm not exactly sure what show this clip is from but it's friggin' hilarious.
Aw man, not soda pop! Haha, thanks Raidra. It's been too long. I have indeed been promoted. Huzzah!

So I saw Avengers: Infinite War on Friday and it was awesome. It had a great balance of wonderful action, brilliantly written humor, and even a couple of emotional moments. Without giving too much away, the ending was a bit weird but other than that, I really enjoyed it and I think it was much better than the Black Panther movie.
Oh crap! Did I forget to add a link to the last sentence of my last message? Well the clip that was supposed to be included was a clip from this What Would You Do-esque show where two little kids are making stuff for the troops. Suddenly, this college aged man comes up to them with an ice cream truck and asks if they would like free ice cream. The kids go with him and the man offers to give them a tour of the truck. They both get in though the girl is a little hesitant. After the tour is over, the girl tells the boy, "Dallas, we don't know him. Stranger Danger." The camera cuts to Dallas who nows has ice cream in his hands. He then says, "Ice cream." After that, the girl says, "You're in big trouble." and Dallas holds the ice cream up to the girl and responds with, "Wanna bite?"
I'm sorry to hear about your mom. (gives Raidra a hug) Don't worry about getting back to me soon and take all the time you need.
I'm sorry for your loss
Hello, I saw your message and I wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about the loss of your mother. Take all the time you need as your mother was a great woman, she would want you to take care of yourself. Though you already know it, your mother loved you very much and she will always watch over you. If you would like to talk, I'm available to do so whenever you'd like. Please take care of yourself, I hope you have a blessed day as well. Luigifan100 03:18, May 1, 2018 (UTC)
RE: A Sad Update
Hello, I just saw your message. I am truly sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Please accept my deepest condolence. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss.
You're welcome Raidra, it's what friends are for, to be there during times of need. I also enjoy Reese's cups, as well as all chocolate, please take care of yourself and your brother. I hope that you and your family take it easy Raidra. Your mother's kindness will live on in the hearts of those she touched and that will never go away. I also hope you have a blessed day as well, thank you for the kind words. Luigifan100 04:04, May 4, 2018 (UTC)

So good news! Next week will be my last week of college classes until the fall! Yay! That means that I'll be free for the summer and have more time to work on stuff.
Speaking of that Speilburg video game movie, Adam from YourMovieSucks.ORG made a whole review about it and the review pretty sums up my thoughts on the movie.
Hello Raidra, I'm also blessed to have such a great friend like you. It makes me sad to know that other people like to troll or be hurtful to others, it doesn't make any sense to me. I'm glad they provided Reese's cups, chocolate is always good for every occasion, it's helpful for times when life is full of sorrow. As I said previously, your mother will never be forgotten, she'll be the star that guides your or your brother whenever you feel lost. Please have a blessed day. Luigifan100 04:18, May 8, 2018 (UTC)
My deepest sympathy to you and your family
I am deeply saddened to learn that you've lost your mother. I know there are no words that can really dispell the grief at this time, so I will simply offer you my support. I too lost my mother back in 2004, and I know just how devestating this type of pain can be. If there is anything at all I can do to be of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.

So I found a clip from the nineteenth episode of season twenty eight of The Simpsons where Mr. Burns visits Yale and discovers that it has been taken over by overly offended students. What's interesting about this clip is that Mr. Burns is the most sympathetic character here, even though he's supposed to be a cartoony villian. Also, given the recent Apu controversy, I think this clip is more relevent than ever.
I have some good news! I finished all of the work I had to do for college this week so now I'm off for the summer. My next set of college classes start in the fall but that's a ways off from now.
While browsing the internet, I came across this funny sketch from a show called Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job that airs/aired on Adult Swim. When I was about nine or ten years old, I had a TV in my bedroom at my dad's house and late at night, I'd watch whatever was on Adult Swim. Sometimes, I'd stay up long enough to see that "The Dawn is Your Enemy" bumper that signaled the switch from Adult Swim to Cartoon Network.
I found this excellent orchestral cover of the song "Feed The Birds" from Mary Poppins.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Laughed at how ridiculous poor Pingu's face looked as he stared at that abomination when I first drew it.
Polly the Parrot Monster
You say it looks ridiculous, and perhaps it does, but imagine running into a real-life Polly.
I am very sorry for your loss and I am really sorry that I wasn't there for you when it happened. -hugs- I'm at a loss of words right now, but gosh, I hope you are doing okay. Please continue to take care of yourself. I'm wishing you all the best~
Happy birthday to you as well!

This summer, there's supposed to be a new rainforest exhibit opening at my local zoo. They didn't specify which month it would be open but my guess is that it might open sometime around late June to early July given how far along they are into the construction of the building.
So there's this movie coming out soon called Crazy Rich Asians and it's based on a book that shares the same name. Supposedly, the film has an all Asian cast, which apparently has gotten some controversy that will take me way too long to explain so for now, here's a link to some information about it. While I'm not sure how the film will turn out, I decided to search for a preview of the book to see if it would be something I'd get into. Well, after reading the entire preview, I was not impressed.
So from what I understand, this book is told from the perspective of five different characters (including Rachel Chu, Nicholas Young, Eleanor Young, Astrid Teo, and Edison Cheng) and the perspective seems to change from chapter to chapter. For example, in one chapter, we'll be in the head of Rachel and then in the next chapter, we'll be in Nick's head. My issue with this is that even though it says who's head we're in at the start of the chapter, it can still get kind of difficult to keep track of which character we're following after a while. Because of this, instead of thinking about how well written he story is or how likable and interesting the characters were as I was reading, I was constantly asking, "Who am I following right now?" Speaking of the characters, I found most of them to be one dimensional and uninteresting except for maybe Astrid.
Recently, I've been playing Fallout: New Vegas and while roaming the Mojave Wasteland, I sometimes turn on the radio and tune it to the Mojave Music Radio station. My favorite song from this station is Big Iron by Marty Robbins.

Speaking of Amazon Trail, Brutalmoose did a review of Amazon Trail II back in 2015 and the game has a Jaguar that vaugely sounds like James Earl Jones for some reason. He also made an episode of BrutalFoods, which is a cooking show type series, where he tries different recipes from this Ramen cook book, like a Ramen Noodle Taco. The recipies were written by Cathy Mitchell, who is famous for something called Dump Dinners, though the Ramen recipies seem like something a poor college student would come up with.
So people are currently debating about what word is said in this audio clip. Even though the guy is clearly saying, "Laurel", some people think he's saying "Yanny". But, how you get the word "Yanny" out of "Laurel"? I mean, the recording is crystal clear and doesn't have a lot of background noise like static that might distort what's said.
I'd like to think that Crazy Rich Asians gets better in the later chapters but I get the feeling that might not actually be the case. Also, I forgot to mention this in my last message but because the book revolves around five different characters, it make the book feel unfocused and all over the place.
For the film adaptation, I think they should only focus on Rachel and Nick to make things seem more focused and easier to follow along. The trailer for the film came out last month and implies that they might do something like this but trailers aren't always reliable when it comes to telling/showing you what you'll get in the full movie.
So far, there hasn't been that much information about the new Pokemon game that hasn't been confirmed by Nintendo aside from the fact that it will be on the Switch. As much as I'd like to see Gorochu in the new Pokemon game, I won't treat rumors or speculation as absolute truth unless they have been officialy confirmed to be true by a company like Nintendo. Now don't get me wrong. I don't mind people speculating or making predictions about upcoming games and whatnot. But when the makers of the speculations/predictions act like their speculations/predictions are fact and will absolutely happen without a shadow of a doubt, even if they have little to no reliable information to back them up (which you're thankfully not doing), then that's when I have a problem with it.

Yup! That's the one! He's made more Brutalfoods episodes since the Banana Roll Salad video like this one where he makes Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes, the one where he makes Hearty Pizza Dip, and the one where he makes Popcorn Penguins.
Bananas are a great source of potassium and make great additions to things like Banana Splits, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Smoothies, and so on. But don't put them in a taco! Not everything works in taco form. The only unconventional thing I'd probably use in a taco is spaghetti. Speaking of Spaghetti, did you know that Spaghetti Tacos have their own Wikipedia page?
So I've come up with ideas for one of those "X but It's Y" type of videos. One of these ideas is Home Alone 2 But It's Only the Tim Curry Scenes and the other is Home Alone 2 But It's Just Marv Getting Hit With a Brick for Ten Minutes.

Hihihi, I'm surprised by how the tropical storm is acting up nationwide, it's pretty scary! The weather here has been full of rain for the past 1-2 weeks so at least the grass and flowers are all green! I enjoy all types of chocolate, especially slightly melted chocolate! For Pokemon Y, you picked a great game, if it's your first Pokemon game, it's possibly one of the best ones to start out the series since it involves a few new mechanics/gimmicks, but nothing that would be too overwhelming. If it's not your first Pokemon game, you picked a super game regardless, it's great for beginners or veterans. How was your day today? Eat any amazing chocolate treats?

When I was about five years old, I went to Disney World with my family and one of the rides we went on was called "Living with The Land". The first part of the ride with the thunder and lightning really scared me because my sensory issues were really bad back then.
In Japan, there is a thing called "Curry Bread" that's basically a deep fried hollowed out piece of dough with curry stuffed inside it. I've never had one myself, but it sounds pretty good. I'd replace the hollowed out bread in the bean and bacon bread recipe with a hollowed out ham.
So recently, the official Pokemon Twitter account has released a trailer for games titled Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. From what I understand, these are spinoff games that are marketed towards people who like playing Pokemon Go and that a real main series game for the Switch will be coming some time in 2019.
Not that long ago, the tenant who was living in the upstairs apartment at my mom's house has moved out and my brother has moved from the basement of her house to that apartment. He most if not all of his stuff with him, including the Xbox One so now there's no video game console down there. Now I've been thinking about getting a Switch for a long time and now that there's no video game console in the basement, I figured that I'd get a Switch for Christmas or something to put down there since the basement is going to become my new room once my brother is done unpacking everything.
For me, the reason why the brick scene is so funny is because Home Alone is famous for its complex traps and for the sequel, you'd think that the first "trap" they would show would be something like that. But instead, the first actual trap in Home Alone 2 is just Kevin throwing bricks at Marv.

I just thought of this but I think I've figured out a way to fix one of the major issues of the Crazy Rich Asians book. In the book, it shifts between a few characters such as Rachel, Nick, and Astrid. Even though their name is at the beginning of each chapter, it still gets confusing as to who the focus is after a while. So, my solution to this problem would be to give the chapters their own distinct font style depeneding on which character is being focused on. For example, the Rachel chapters could have the Times New Roman font, the Nick chapters could have the Broadway font, and the Astrid chapters could have another style font that isn't Comics Sans because, let's face it, who likes that font anyway? Though I'm not sure how well this idea would work out in a published novel.
Recently, the ROM for the demo for Pokemon Gold and Silver has been found and examined and a lot of its data has been posted onto the internet. The most notable piece of data is the Pokemon that were found in this demo. While some of them made it to the final version, others were cut. For example, my favorite Pokemon that got cut was this fire bear named Honōguma and its evolutions. Also, Farfetched has an evolution in this demo and I really wish they would've kept it in the final game. Also, Ditto got an evolution in this demo. Supposedly, Ditto would evolve into this form when it holds a Metal Coat, though whether it needs to level up or get traded to trigger the evolution while its holding the item is unclear.
In Pokemon Yellow, Professor Oak intended on giving the player an Eevee as a starter since all of the other ones got taken. However, the player's rival shows up and steals the Eevee. Because of this, Oak gives the player the only other starter he had left, which was a Pikachu. So my guess is that Pokemon: Let's Go Eevee takes place in a parallel universe where the player in Pokemon Yellow got the Eevee and the rival got the Pikachu, though this is just speculation so take it with a grain of salt.

I wanted to get this message out sooner but I've been quite busy. The other day I was cleaning out the shelves of the nightstands in my room and the stuff under my bed and going through their contents to see what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to give away. Because the previous tenant has recently moved out, my brother has moved into this little apartment that's on the top floor of my mom's house so I'm getting ready to move into his old room, hence why I've been doing a little "spring cleaning" lately.
Speaking of cleaning, one of the things I found that was under my bed was a box full of CDs and computer games and whatnot. The most surprising thing I discovered was a cassette tape of the soundtrack for Pokemon: The First Movie that was in near perfect condition! However, it seems as though the tape needs to be rewound since all of the tape is on the right reel. I can send you some pictures of it if you like.
So a guy named Folding Ideas made a video called "A Lukewarm Defence of Fifty Shades of Grey (The Movie)". It's a very in-depth video about the first Fifty Shades movie. In fact, it's so in-depth, it goes on for about an hour and five minutes. Despite the title, it's not a pro-Fifty Shades video.
Last night, I started and completed a very basic Nuzlocke challenge on Pokemon Yellow. Since it was my first ever Nuzlocke, I didn't include too many rules besides the core ones (i.e A fainted Pokemon is considered dead and you must release it, you may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area and none else, etc) along with a couple of optional rules such as you must fight or catch every wild Pokemon you encouter and nicknaming every Pokemon you catch. Despite this, I didn't lose any mon's along the way and I think it was because of the first optional rule. You see, for most of the game, my Pokemon were overpowered from how much experience points they got along the way and were able to defeat anything in their path with ease. I could've gotten rid of the first optional rule at some point in my playthrough but I didn't think it was a good idea since I thought that might be seen as cheap. I'm going to start a Nuzlocke of Pokemon Crystal soon, though I'll have to figure out the rules for it first.
