Of Batman, Jokers, and Plagiarists
I don't mind! It makes me feel useful, if I am being fully honest XD
Sweet! Looking forward to it. Oh, I need to go check out part 3 of your blog! I've had a few duties since before it was posted and hadn't had the time to look it over. Talk to you later then, good night. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 02:10, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
- Anytime :) How old would you say your computer is and what operating system does it run? The newer the computer and the older the game that you try to run, the less likely the game is to work. I know my copy of Star Wars: Tie Fighter which came out in 94 or 95, will not run on my 2009 Windows 7 laptop without me downloading a few things off the internet.
- That reminds me a little bit of the old "Where is Carmen San Diego" game that I used to play in 4th grade. You'd go around collecting clues and would apprehend the bad guy after you followed them. Sounds like a really neat game. The modern day Batman games need more detective elements added to them; they tend to just focus on his fighting abilities which isn't all that Batman is about.
- Ew, those eat bugs XD
- I'm in the process of reading the 3rd part of the weapons blog, but I'm super tired and have been away all day, so it'll be tomorrow before I can finish reading it (wanna not accidentally skip over things when I read it. I really like to take time and appreciate things like that). Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 06:42, February 17, 2016 (UTC)
- It's super unfortunate and is why I don't want to change operating systems if I can avoid it. A lot of the older games have uniqueness and charm to them that the newer ones don't because companies could take more risks back then due to the lower development costs. Now it costs $100 million (give or take a bit) to make a video game.
- I would really like a video game that allowed me to gather clues and try to guess where certain villains would strike next (such as the Riddler). I wouldn't mind being put in some death traps and having to figure out how to escape them similar to how "Nightshade" for the NES did it.
- That's funny. It's that sort of attention to detail and character that really adds to things like that.
- I have never seen a Venus Fly Trap in person :( My favorite thing that is sort of like them are Praying Manti. I love those little buggers! They were fun to find and keep as pets. They wouldn't eat anything that was dead, I had to master hitting flies hard enough with the flyswatter to knock them dizzy, but not kill them, so that I could put them in the cage to be hunted. Venus Fly Traps are so cool though! I'm pretty jealous that I haven't got to have one XD That's really neat. That sort of plant is so animal-like that I probably wouldn't have thought off pruning its dead heads, so good job! I'm glad it lived through it and grew new ones :)
- As for those people that copied your stories... I'm going to tell them "I am a friend of Raidra, the author, and she has told me that she wishes to be credited in her stories: <insert link to article's edit history>, so would you be so kind as to credit her at the end of the story?" How does that sound to you? Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 07:12, February 18, 2016 (UTC)
- I honestly wouldn't know where to look. The only store I know of in my town and the immediate surrounding area that sells plants is Walmart and they'd never carry anything as awesome as that. Unfortunately I had to release it because of the approaching winter due to the lack of flies that'd bring. Haha and I'll imagine that it's praying before its meal XD No problem! Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 07:03, February 19, 2016 (UTC)
- Ebay and Amazon are the only two places I ever buy anything from online. Amazon messes up a bit, but they always make it right, whereas Ebay has always done right by me (I always look at a user's feedback before I'll bid). I wouldn't trust a plant to be delivered by mail because so many things can go wrong though. Maybe one of these days I'll get lucky and find one in a store or something XD
- That's sad. I was wondering how long they tended to live for. Heh. Oh, I'm writing a sort of samurai story (alternate universe type thing) and I'm using your blogs for ideas on the weapons, so thank you for making the blog :D I'm pretty bummed out by the lack of responses that they got. I thought it was a really interesting subject that would have generated a lot of discussion. I'm looking over types of curiasses and things like that; I'm going to have a female protagonist named Ikari who is mockingly called Icky on occasion. Buckle up!

I think I might have Kristy call her friend and explain what had happened. I flipped a coin, played eenie meeny miney moe, and came to the conclusion that the parents would think it was something serious like a loose dog or other animal with rabies or something.
One of my other major fears are Plauge Doctors. The ones that wear a wide brim hat, long robes, and a mask that resembles a bird. There are a lot of factors that make them scary to me like how their faces look like skulls and how they look when put in certain light.
Reply to "Memento?" Message
I was going to get back to you last night but I fell asleep watching an ASMR video. If you don't know what that is, allow me to explain. ASMR is a euphoric experience characterized by a static-like tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine, precipitating relaxation. There are many ASMR videos that act as this relaxing roleplay sort of thing. For example, there are ASMR videos about someone reading a bed time story, getting a massage, etc. When I watch these kinds of videos, I fall asleep very easily. When I wake up I can barely hold anything like my tablet or phone.
Regarding the pasta, what do you mean by "viewing Kristy's fears as misplaced, but real." I'm trying to picture this in my head but I'm confused. Other than that, I'm find. I might resume work on the pasta today but with all this talk of ASMR, I want to go back to sleep.

I added another part to chapter 11 but I'm not sure where I should place it or if I even want to use it. Should I place it after this part:
"The episode had shifted to a scene where the police were investigating Kristy's house. Several officers were shown to be thoroughly examining the kitchen for potential clues to lead them to whoever or whatever caused the damage." Or wait until a later part in the chapter?
This is what I wrote:
"Kristy and her parents were being interviewed when they heard a knock at the door. Kristy's father moved slowly towards the door and barely opened it. He saw that it was a boy around Kristy's age. "Hi there, sir." the boy said, "I saw a couple of police cars outside of your house and I came by to see if Kristy was okay. Is it alright if I come in?" At first, Kristy's dad harshly refused and slammed the door. However, Kristy recognized the boy as Hotaka based on his voice and told her dad that's who she met earlier. Kristy's father quickly opened the door and said, "Wait! You're Kristy's friend? Well, if that's the case, I suppose you could stay for a bit."
Hotaka made his way up the steps and was escorted into the house by Kristy's father. "Eh... Sorry about the whole 'slamming the door in your face thing' back there pal." Said Kristy's father."
I basically started with this for the time being: "Kristy and her parents were sitting in the living room until a police officer came over and told them about what he and the others have learned."
Other than that, I'm stuck like a fly on fly paper.
RE: Short Hoggers
Okay, you take care too.
Reply to "Segment in The Middle" message
Okay. Maybe something like this email in-between those parts:
"The officer cleared his throat and began to explain what happened based on the clues presented. "Well I've got some good news and bad news for you. The good news is that we were able to identify the animal tracks. They appear to be from some sort of fox. The bad news is that the fox might've had rabies since they usually come out at night. We'll have to get animal control involved if we're ever going to have a chance of catching it."
That's what I started on so far.
When I watch TV and become extremely relaxed, I fall asleep without noticing and sometimes when this happens, I have a dream where I'm watching TV but can't mute the audio. And in some dreams, I'm a snail.

So before I show you what I did for the pasta, I came across this.. thing in a YouTube video I was watching:
It almost made me cry looking at it.
Here's what I have for the pasta:
"The episode had shifted to a scene where the police were investigating Kristy's house. Several officers were shown to be thoroughly examining the kitchen for potential clues to lead them to whoever or whatever caused the damage.

Kristy and her parents were just about to be interviewed when they heard a knock at the door. Kristy's father moved slowly towards the door and barely opened it.

Reply to "Jorge" message
Yes! I watched that same video last night! Morso along with what I can only describe is a blanket bird, are friggin horrifying. I got extremely paranoid and afriad that one of those two was in my room hiding somewhere. I'm actually subbed to Jorge since he does seem to make intreuging content and even collaborates with other users such as ThatCreepyReading and ScareTheater. I think Jorge was the one who introduced me to those users and I'm also subbed to their content.
So... Do you think Kristy's father had a believable reaction when he refused Hotaka entry into the house at first? I'm starting to think of where the plot will go after that scene. Hmmm.... Maybe I'll find out tomorrow.
That's true, but don't jinx it! I ended up going with the Jian for Ikari (even though everything else is Japanese-based at the moment. Just going to have a mish-mash universe type thing that goes on). That'll be neat. I'll be sure to check it out when you post it! Thanks again, it is appreciated :D Buckle up!

- Oh hey, a fellow ex-community college student XD Ah, how I miss those days. I'm really considering going back and trying to get a second degree since there isn't much that I can do with my first one. Ugh, people like that are why it is important for artists to pick and choose who to accept feedback from and who not to; it's really a shame.
- That's pretty funny to me because China doesn't care for Japan all that much to my understanding (though limited it may be). Japan laid a bunch of the groundwork for their country by "borrowing" and modifying a few things from China, such as their written language. There might be some cutlasses in it as well though, so it might end up as this weird melting pot of interconnected influences XD LOL, I hope so.

I mostly kept to myself during my second year as all my friends either dropped out or moved on and my social anxiety had kicked into full swing at that point.
- Hooray, dark humor :D That's cool. I wish I had me some books like that. The best I have in terms of something historical is 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces'. Huh, that'd definitely cover it.

He loves going to the Star Wars conventions and he always takes the questions he is asked in stride (and usually answers humorously). Here's some Star Wars trading cards that he has signed which really showcase his sense of humor . Haha, I'm glad that I've never seen The Holiday Special.

- It is somewhat likely that the writer or some of the writers weren't familiar with the Batman source material. There are cases where writers hope onto projects and write about things that they have no real idea about or history with because at the end of the day it is a paycheck. Any good writer would do some research though. However, some of it could also have been studio/director meddling. I know the director of Batman and Robin/Batman Forever is a really eccentric man who they should not have let near the Batman franchise (putting nipples on the Batsuit was his idea for example *shudders*).
- Oh, I hope you are feeling better now. Heh, haven't seen Mythbusters in quiet some time. I really like the show. Actually, this season is going to be the show's last and then it is going to end. I'm surprised that the show went on for as long as it did though because from what I've heard Adam and Jamie actually dislike each other, but are able to stay professional on the set due to having a degree of respect for each other. It's sad actually, because they should get along so well. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 06:12, February 27, 2016 (UTC)
- Oh yeah! I read about that script. I think he wanted Superman to have a black suit and Ben Affleck was his first choice for playing him too, if my brain isn't leading me astray. I found it:  Superman Lives. Ha, he probably wanted giant robot spiders to be his signature in films. *Imagines Peters getting tasked with making a serious romance film and a giant robotic spider appearing midway through it*
- Yeah, but at least they got to crack all the myths that they wanted to and the show had a nice run. Ghost Busters! Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 19:47, February 28, 2016 (UTC)
- I used to think that Superman script was really stupid, but now I sort of like it. It'd severely gimp Superman and make him have to deal with things in a different way, therefore making a fairly unique story. Plants Versus Arachnids! In other news, I am looking into buying a microphone and how to edit files, so that I may start narrating my own Creepypastas on YouTube.

Reply to "Planet of The Monkeys" message
I started to take your advice and I revised that part a bit. Here:
"Kristy and her parents were just about to be interviewed when they heard a knock at the door. Kristy's father moved slowly towards the door and barely opened it. He saw that it was a boy around Kristy's age. "Hi there, sir." the boy said, "I saw a couple of police cars outside of your house and I came by to see if Kristy was okay. Is it alright if I come in?" At first, Kristy's dad harshly refused and growled, "Look buddy! I don't know how you got my daughter's name, but I want you off of my property now!" The boy was taken aback by what Kristy's father said and found himself unable to move, thinking he'd get beaten up badly by the father if he did so. However, Kristy recognized the boy as Hotaka based on his voice and told her dad that's who she met earlier. Kristy's father gasped and hastily said, "Wait! You're Kristy's friend?" He took a deep breath and continued with what he had to say. "I'm so...Sorry. Look, if you want to visit Kristy, you're more than welcome to do so." Hotaka started to calm down and was escorted into the house by Kristy's father. "Eh... Sorry about that whole mess back there, pal." Said Kristy's father."
I think after this part, the officer might question Hotaka and ask him if he saw anything unusual in the neighborhood.
Reply to "Monkey Trio from Pokemon?" Message
What are these three monkeys you talk about? Are they the fire, water, and grass type monkey pokemon from the Pokemon games? The grass type one is called Pansage, The fire one is called Pansear, and the water on is called Panpour. Their designs are really adorable but their evolutions... not so much. Theyir designs looks laughable since they all look like they all have bad haircuts. The trio is a fire, water, and grass type trio. That wouldn't be so bad... if we didn't get a trio like that in every single main series pokemon game. If the trio was a dark, psychic, and fighting type trio, I might've liked them a lot more but as is, they aren't the worst pokemon out there.
As for the pasta, I'm thinking the policeman could interview Hotaka and when Hotaka tells him what he and Kristy were doing before the incident happened (telling the legend of the samurai girl), the police officer will become scared, implying that telling the samurai girl legend outloud may have caused the incident and will cause further incidents with each one being worse than the last.

I would've delivered my previous message earlier but last night, I was out like a light.
So out of all the monkey like Pokemon, my favorite has to be Mankey. I think this is because it combines certain traits from two of my favorite animals. It has the snout of a pig and a monkey's overall design.
Reply to "Stine" message
Sorry to hear you're having eye strain issues. Have you tried looking for blue light filters? They have mobile apps and maybe computer programs for blue light filtering. I think it may help cut down on eye strain. I use it all the time when I'm using my tablet at night.
From what I understand, the series is based on an R.L Stine book called The Nightmare Room which I haven't read. Since I haven't read the book, I don't compare the episodes to the stories they were based on. Instead, I like to judge them as standalone episodes. Stine is not directly involved in the writing process of these episodes though.
I have a whole list of favorite Pokemon but my top favorite has to be Cyndaquil. It's so adorable yet badass (I mean it practically has X-ray vision to see out of its always closed eyes). It is just as good as the Charmander line!
It seems that every time I shower, I feel really sleepy afterwards. It's like warm air meets cold wetness and creates steam in the form of this sleepy feeling. Odd huh?
Reply to "Glasses" message
You wear glasses? Maybe you said something about that before but honestly I don't remember. I sometimes get eyestrain if I'm under bright light for I think more than a half hour. I never thought about wearing glasses to help with eyestrain, mostly because I have 20/20 vision.
Raichu is an excellent Pokemon! I remember in the original Gen 1 games where there was a man in the Cinnabar City laboratory and if you traded a Raichu for his Electrode, he says that the Raichu evolved. This was due to a translation error from the original Japanese games where you traded a Kadabra for another Pokemon. This was fixed in the remakes. I used to think Raichu had another form. Was there ever a mega Raichu? Speaking of that, there are new Pokemon games that have just leaked called Sun and Moon! (a whole stadium of people blows all their kazoos at once). I bet the third game will be called... Um... Eclipse? What's the third thing with the sun and Moon duo? I don't know.
Tomorrow, I'm going to see a play of Little Women. Never really read the book so I'm going to in for a surprise I bet!
I Got an Idea
Here's what I got... Classic Literature... With Pokemon! Let's see what you and I come up with on that front!
Reply to "Goddamit! Not Another Zubat" message
Last night, I had a terrible nightmare. But I was awake though. I had thoughts of the disturbing puppets from Sesame Street 2.0 called Peppermint Park and Ratafak Plachta and I felt their presence in the room I was sleeping in last night (I was staying over my mother's house last night because my dad couldn't drive me home from my art class since he felt really sick). I had to constantly inspect every single area of the room to make sure those creatures weren't hiding and planning on doing God knows what to me when I let my guard down. These characters were made for kids! Why? How? What? Why? When I woke up this morning, I felt extremely dizzy. I couldn't walk in a straight line and I kept running into the wall. I had to wake up earlier than usual to go to the play so that's probably why I felt that way.
As for the Little Women play, it was really well done! I won't spoil too much but basically one of the death scenes is handled with such subtlety that I didn't catch on to it at first.
Well I decided to go back and watch a favorite Pokemon anime episode (The one with Sabrina). I watched it so many times that I will now see her in my dreams. She's pretty scary even to this day (you can factor in my fear of eye contact as one of the reasons why I find her scary).
Reply to "Sabrina" message
Well the good news is that last night, Sabrina didn't appear in my dreams. I feel so exhausted right now that getting a good night's rest shouldn't be an issue. Except that I think I'm so tired, that the tired o meter rolled back to negative zero. Unless Ratafak comes in and makes it even worse. People say that Mr. Mime is a scary Pokémon. But to be honest, I find him to be kind of cute. Maybe it's because I'm not afraid of clowns or something.
I don't mind the amount of Eeveelutions currently because you have so many different options to choose from and if you need a spot to be filled on your team, there's an eeveelution for almost every type.

Happy Leap Day to you! I found this really cute gif celebrating leap day! Here: https://www.google.com/logos/doodles/2016/leap-year-2016-5690429188079616-hp.gif
As for the Eeveelutions, I think if they were to use shards (Sun Shard, Moon Shard, Grass Shard, Ice Shard, etc) to get the Eeveelutions besides Flareon, Vaporeon, and Jolteon, it would make things a lot easier. Scyther is also one of my favorite Pokemon because of its design and rarity.
I slept until 1pm today. I sometimes do that when I'm really caught up in a dream.
Reply to "Day of Leaping and Squeaking" message
I guess I like Mr. Mime because of his chubby appearance. I find chubby things to be cute for some reason. Maybe because I feel like they might squeak like a rubber ducky if you poke or squeeze them. And we all know you can't go wrong with a rubber ducky! Mime Jr. is also adorable. I even had a Mime Jr. figurine as a kid.
Last night, my dream was something else. I dreamed that I was back in public school and I was in a class and I was extremely angry. People kept talking and crowding around me and I threw things and said things like "Okay I got the blue books! Now will you shut the hell up!?" And "Fuck off". I swear a lot more when I'm angry. Don't know why. I was then in my friend's house and on their desk was a brochure for an operating system with the years 1993 and 2006 on them. In the middle of a brochure was a picture of Sabrina from Pokemon in a white Team Rocket outfit. I also remember there was a clock that was 1 hour ahead. For example, I looked at the clock and it said 3:00pm when it was really 2pm. Time is weird in dreams, huh? Do they too enforce Daylight Savings Time?
Today I went to one of my state libraries for a homeschooling event (It was an event where you learn about a country, this time it was Iceland, through potluck lunches sampling the country's cuisine and presentations of various subjects related to the country) and in the library, they had a rack full of VHS tapes for $0.50 each. Guess what I found? Labyrinth starring David Bowie! My dad has a VCR at his house so I might bring it over there when I go back to his house.
As for the streak, I use this wiki whenever I get a moment. Sometimes I can keep up a streak and other times not whether it be business or time zone issues (Damn you 12 hour Eastern Standard Time systemmmmmmm!!!!!!!!) I'm going to try and work on my pasta again since I've been a bit busy lately. I think the fear of eye contact thing may be hereditary because one of my brother's former teachers said he too was not a fan of eye contact.
Random and Not Random
Thank you, you too! I was actually due on Leap Day, but I was born a few days beforehand (so I'd be six now, I believe, if I had stuck to my due date). Ha! I do, I'm actually on day 59, but this time it is just kind of whatever. I'm not caring about it now that I've missed it the first time. It's pretty neat to have been active for all but one day from my signing up here. Yeah, I actually have the programs that I need on my desktop because my friend who sold me it is a YouTuber. I'm just getting kind of bored and am not having any luck landing a job (I want to be productive somehow, though not necessarily in a money making sort of way). Whenever I die, I want to go to the grave knowing that I did a lot of different (and possibly even somewhat unique) things, so that would go toward that a bit, I guess. I hope I don't come across as bleak because that's not my intent, I mean that in as casual a way as possible XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 07:56, March 1, 2016 (UTC)

- That'd be awesome. If you do make an inspirations page, then be sure to let me know!
- I've only had it twice and I haven't had it since 2014, so I believe I am in the clear. I'm convinced that it was brought on due to a lack of sleep as there was a period where I found it really hard to sleep and it wasn't uncommon for me to go 48 hours without sleep. Sometimes when I would fall asleep, I'd dream that I was stocking shelves at Walmart (dreaming of doing my job) and it was very unpleasant/boring. I don't dream of that anymore or still work at Walmart, thankfully.
- I bet. Dreams are super strange in nature to begin with and when you have sleep disorders kicking in... I'm sorry to hear that :( I wish good dreams upon you. I usually either don't dream or have nightmares. I tend to die in my nightmares, but I always snap awake before I actually die in the nightmares (so I dream of situations that would kill me in the dreams, I guess?) and I always feel like I'm falling when I snap awake from it. It's discomforting to be sure. I do find it odd about how I usually dream of dying, since I'm not bothered by the thought of my own death (others dying/potentially dying does bother me, but I rarely dream of that).

I'm not so much a fan of the episodes that came out after the first movie though. I feel that's where it started to go down hill. I loved the episode where they are trying to make Manray into a good person and Patrick won't accept the wallet that he dropped because he keeps insisting to Manray that it isn't his wallet. Later on when he's carrying a box and keeps dropping it on Manray's foot he is asked what is in the box by a very angry Manray to which Patrick replies "my wallets".
- I am also a fan of the imagination box episode. "I think you're going to have to saw off my arms." "I can't." "Why?" "I already sawed off my own." Later on you can hear a chopper and someone from the chopper saying "Help is on the way! We've brought saws!" Really dark humor, can't believe they got away with it XD
- That's good. That must've been a gigantic puzzle. It's been years since I've put together a puzzle, but I always had fun doing it. I would have enjoyed it even more if the picture on the front had been covered up and I didn't know what I was putting together, but alas they cannot do that because no one would know what kind of puzzle they were buying. Ow!
- Lol. I'm unfamiliar with it, because I haven't seen any of the episodes in the last two or three seasons. Their specials were always good though. I liked the one where Squidward played Santa Clause and gave away everything he had so that Spongebob wouldn't be upset XD Yeah, and Squidward ripped it up :(
- The final episode of Mythbusters aired last night. I came across it by complete chance and it was good. They didn't bust any myths, they just blew things up and destroyed their props in the most creative of ways. They also aired a special episode after it where they all reminisced which was pretty good. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 17:33, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
- Lol XD Old Nick was truly amazing (although I suspect that I may secretly be suffering from a Nostalgia Attack). I don't remember that particular show, but I do remember 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' pretty well.
- I missed that special, but that must have been a good thing. The last special I remember seeing was the one where they went to Atlantis (speaking of, hopefully I can get my Atlantis creepypasta off the ground, or rather under it). Haha, 'Suds'. "A lollipop? Hey doc, I think I'm sick too." Oh gosh, the worm episode! "What if we take Bikini Bottom and move it someplace else?" and then the worm ends up landing on it after they move it XD
- I don't remember that, but in my defense I was probably busy watching Nick JR. (or Thomas the Tank Engine) rather than Nick proper. I vaguely recall something about a clown and a microwave which freaked me out on that show :| Oh, the plant-human hybrids! Yeah, that was disturbing. I actually own that episode on VHS. There's been rumors for a couple of years now that Cartoon Network might bring back Courage, that show was warped!
- I've actually never watched the X-Files even though I hear it was great, well, minus both endings to it. I feel like "It's BIG, SCARY, and PINK!" "Oh, like Patrick's belly button?" was one such line in the episode, but my mind might have just made it up.
- Sometimes a show having the plug pulled on it before its time can be a good thing as it prevents the show from becoming mediocre. It's still super sad either way though. Two and a Half Men immediately comes to mind when I think of a show that ran for too long and had a horrible ending. The novel title is most encouraging XD In all seriousness, I do like countdown lists.Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 05:59, March 8, 2016 (UTC)
- I don't remember those :( I remember Little Bill, Franklin, and Blue's Clues (also the Nick JR. host, Face). I think X-Files was meant to be a full fledged series when they brought it back, but things didn't work out for one reason or another and so the cancelled it. Ah, it's been a while since I last saw that episode, but gosh was it memorable :D
- At the risk of getting killed by angry fans, I'd say that The Big Bang Theory is another show that has run on for too long (ironically has the same director as Two and a Half Men did). I feel like Two and a Half Men could have ended on a satisfying note as bringing back Charlie made things interesting, but they killed it all to make a jab at Charlie Sheen, regardless of whether or not he may have deserved it. It sounds like it is worth checking out, but I don't know when I'll get the chance as I've already spent $100 this month, so no more purchases until the next or if I manage to get a job before then :| Oh geez, Bryan Cranston is super dedicated! You know, it's really easy to never realize that people are risking life and limb so that we can be entertained and a lot of them are stunt doubles that never even get recognition, what amazing people.

I was looking at that EBay link for the Doughboy (there's actually a food in Rhode Island called that) toy and it's kind of creepy. It states at you with its unblinking eyes like that damn Elf on The Shelf thing. Did you ever have that in your house growing up? But then again, The Staypuff Doughboy Lad looks kind of derpy.
I added a new part to my pasta: "When the two made it to the living room, another officer who seemed to have tree trunks for arms and legs had walked over to Hotaka and opened up her dark blue notebook to a clean page. She got down on one knee and placed the notebook on it as if it were a little desk. She fished out a badge from her pocket and held it up to where Hotaka could see it clearly. She then introduced herself as Officer Sugimoto and asked for his last name. Hotaka gladly gave it to her and she immediately began writing his name in her notebook. Sugimoto looked at Hotaka for a few moments before saying, "Do you mind if you come with me to a separate room? Don't worry! You aren't in trouble. All I need you to do is answer a few questions, okay?"
I know in America that police need to identify themselves before doing anything with anybody. However, in Japan, I'm not sure if that's the case. I've been trying to find information on it but I've had no luck. So for the next scene, Sugimoto asks Hotaka a few questions in one of the bedrooms. The scene may play out like this: "Hotaka and Sugimoto made their way up to the second floor of the house and decided that the master bedroom at the end of the hallway would be the most quiet and private room to conduct their interview. The two had split up and wheeled over a couple of office chairs from both sides of the room. As soon as the got settled, the interview had began. 'So you're Kristy's friend from what I understand. Is that correct?' Sugimoto asked in a stern voice as she looked at him with a fixed gaze. Hotaka nodded and she immediately started jotting down notes. She took a deep breath and proceeded to ask the next question. 'When was the last time you saw Kristy and what were you two doing?' Hotaka stroked his chin and stared at the ceiling for a moment. He then looked at Sugimoto again and said, 'I think it was around 13:00 and I was at my house telling her stories and---' Before he could finish, Sugimoto quickly interjected with 'What kind of stories?' Hotaka glared at her and sighed. 'Well... If you must know... I was telling her about the samurai girl legend.' Sugimoto's eyes had opened wide and her pupils quickly shrunk. Her breathing came to a halt and she was unable to move. She eventually packed up her notebook and slowly backed out of the room as she peered at Hotaka. She carefully unlocked the door and opened it one inch at a time. When she distanced herself enough from Hotaka, she booked it down the hallway and flew down the stairway and at that moment, her breathing had matched the pace of her speeding heartbeat."
I also had this idea for a video game:
"Feever Dreem Game
This game has gameplay similar to LSD: Dream Emulator except for a few elements. For one thing, there is a bit more story to the game. You play as a child who is left home alone while their mother is out buying medicine to combat the fever the child has. To pass the time, the child wanders around the house looking for something to do. The game implements a thermometer system. It starts at 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit and if it reaches the maximum of 125.5 degrees, the child passes out and it's game over. If you go to warm places, like the outside of the house, the attic, and the sauna, the temperature rises more quickly than usual. If you go to places like the pool room, the basement, and the fridge, the temperature goes down quicker than usual. If you go to neither of the two types of places, your temperature will gradually rise. As your temperature rises, weird things start to happen. For example, the camera focus will start to pulse meaning that the screen will start to sharpen and soften. The song "It's a Small World" will be sung in Japanese and will play faintly in the background. The walls will start to sweat and mucus will start to form inside of the house. As the thermometer reaches 120 degrees, The child's breathing will become faster as a beeping sound from an unseen life support machine will become audible. If you're in the upstairs part of the house, you'll hear what is implied to be your mother's voice and as you travel closer to the sound, the voice starts to become deeper and by the time you reach the ground floor of the house, the voice will turn into a low growl.
If you travel down to the basement and you stay down there long enough, even if your temperature is at 99.5 degrees, you'll see a couple of shadows. One resembles a Gengar and replaces your shadow and follows you and the other travels slowly inside and along the floors and you need to watch your step or else it will swallow you up. If you don't escape from the basement quick enough, the Gengar will chomp down on your leg and drain you of not only your bodily fluids, but it will destroy your bone marrow and muscle. The only thing it leaves is hollow skin that seemed as though it's shedded snake skin. Because these creatures are shadows, any method you try to use to fight back will be useless. When the Gengar starts to let out a frothy growl, that's the cue to run."
I'm giving you a lot to read, huh?

I never really thought about that. I don't think I'll include that in the game if I decide to make it. The kid probably wouldn't be able to reach it due to their short stature.
I just saw the new GhostBusters trailer and I wanted to shoot my TV. Then I realized I had no gun. OK I'm confused. The trailer implied it was a sequel yet the title is the same as the original. So which is it? If it's the latter, why not put a god damn 3 in the title?! The concept also feels like this is just taking the ghostbusters characters and gender flipping them. Biggest problem I have with this trailer is that if you're going to to have a female ghostbusting team, why not put Jennine in there?! I'm not the biggest fan of Ghostbusters, but even I can see that this trailer is an insult!
Here's my idea for a ghostbusters film: It's 30 Years Later. The original ghostbusting team has retired. Because Jennine has worked with them for so long and thus knows a thing or two about ghostbusting, the original team has put her in charge of recruiting and training members of a future team on the ins and outs of ghostbusting through field work and whatnot. As the film progresses, the team becomes less reliant on Jennine and can eventually do entire missions on their own.
This idea can allow a lot of room for character development and interesting interactions between Jennine and the team.

So you know the phrase "Fight fire with fire"? It doesn't work in a literal sense, especially if you put cold things on cold skin.
"If you consume poison, it's bound to disagree with you sooner or later." ~ Alice from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
So I saw a play of Alice in Wonderland today. I thought it was pretty good. There was some modern humor and changes made. For example, instead of the Queen challenging Alice to croquette, she challenges her to a game if Simon Says, which lead to some fast paced and intense action scenes. The Queen was also a ton of fun to watch. It was a more musical adaptation and everyone had an American accent (Because it was performed by mostly young kids). I thought the Cheshire Cat becoming the main narrator was a cool idea since he can evaporate and appear anywhere he wanted so I thought they went hand in hand. For the modern humor, it was mostly references such as the Law and Order "Dun Dun" sound for the transition to the trial scene, an entire musical number with the Zipadee Doo Da song playing, and the caterpillar even utters the phrase "Asta La Vista".
As for Ghostbusters, the film isn't supposed to be a sequel rather the trailer makes it seem like it's going to be that. However, it's actually supposed to be either a remake or a reboot (My bet is that it's going to be a reboot since it says this is a new team in the trailer). So in other words, it's not a sequel.

I can imagine it would be a ride that was so awesome, it would make you jump out of your seat and shout "Fuck Yeah" with your teeth clentched. It would also make your testicles/ovaries explode at the same time.
The play from what I understand is loosely based on the 1951 Walt Disney Film, the one with Kathrine Boemont as Alice and Ed Wynn as the best goddamn motherfucking Mad Hatter ever! If you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland. It's one of those "Jr" plays which means it's tailored for younger kids to help them understand the material easier. The story of Alice in Wonderland is one of those stories that's built for animation. Yeah you can do it in live action but if you want the best results, animating it is the best way to go since you can do a lot more with it in terms of effects that would be much harder to do with live action.
So speaking of Alice, there's a new film coming out called "Alice's Through The Looking Glass" or something like that. It's a sequel to the 2010 Tim Burton movie "Alice in Wonderland", which I hate with a fucking passion! I'll make whole review on it later but basically it tricks you into thinking you're getting the original Alice in Wonderland story when in reality it's almost nothing like that. That's the same issue I have with this new movie. It's almost nothing like the Looking Glass book. If you're not going to give us the original story, don't have the movie share the same name as the original story!!! Gaaahhhh!!!! *breaks keyboard*
Reply to "Ed Wynns Again!" Message
So here's my review of Tim Butron's Alice in Wonderland:
1. The design of the Cheshire Cat is pretty cool. Its appearance resembles the look of the cat in the book and the evaporating effects are well done.
1. The title doesn't fit with the plot of the movie. Okay so the title of this film is "Alice in Wonderland". This is also the title of the 1951 animated feature starring Kathrine Boemont as Alice. The title of the original book is very similar as well (Actual Title: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland). So with that said, you expect that this movie is going to tell the story of well... Alice in Wonderland!! However, when you actually watch the movie, it's about a grown up Alice returning to Wonderland which is now a war torn wasteland and she is the chosen one that will slay the Jabberwocky voiced by Christopher Lee (RIP you deserved better). Yes the same world that has cake that makes you grow as tall as Godzilla is now a world of war. If you're going to go that out of your way to make this movie almost nothing like the original story, why have it share a near identical title to the original story? It's just false advertising. Why not call it something like "The Return of Alice" or "War Torn Wonderland"? At least it will let people know it's doing its own thing. But even then...
2. The plot is beyond clichéd. Like I said before, this is one of those "Chosen one saves the world" stories. It pulls all the stops like having the questionable and vague prophecy, somebody thinking it's a dream, you know... The whole kit and caboodle. If you seen a story like this, you've seen this movie. If you wanted to do the chosen one story, why not make it a movie that parodies "Chosen One" story tropes and have the zaniness of Wonderland help out the comedy? I mean if your goal is to make this movie as different as possible then I don't think playing the chosen one story straight is going to help!
3. The main character herself. I'm going to say this right now. I... Hate... This... Version... Of... Alice! She barely has any emotion in this movie. Because of this, she's just as interesting to watch as paint drying. I hear she's supposed to be an avatar character you know someone who people can project themselves onto. Well I'm sorry but that doesn't excuse her being a boring as fuck character! In fact, she's so boring, that I'm convinced that the person who plays Alice in this film is Kevin Costner dressed up as her. For me, characters are a very important aspect of storytelling because if the characters are not very good, then chances are I'm not going to be too interested in following them throughout the course of their story. This is why I prefer the Boemont version of Alice. For one thing, she has a wide range of emotions. She got bored, curious, angry, sad, scared, happy, confused basically running the whole gambit. When she's allowed to to have emotions, it's interesting to see her reactions to each situation that's put in front of her.
Boemont also does a wonderful job of reciting the dialogue from the book and putting a lot of emotion into each word she utters. Because of this, it's quite easy for the audience to get invested. For example, after Alice has gone through so much trouble to get out of Wonderland, there's a scene in a forest where she breaks down and cries which I find to be a heartbreaking scene because you actually see the amount of stress she was put under before this scene. Now I know what you're thinking. "But in the Burton movie, she's an adult so therefore having these range of emotions would be out of place." Um... No! You can have her be an adult and still be interesting. Maybe she's struggling with being an adult because she is scared of letting go of Wonderland because she is not sure if she should even let go of it. She runs around all over the place, draws pictures all over the walls (Especially ones of Wonderland), has trouble taking things seriously, and barely has any regard for personal space. In shirt, her sanity is suffering and she basically acts too much like a child. When she returns to wonderland, she sees that it is in ruin because the Queen has become more logical (Which should've happened in the actual movie) and thus wants everything that is not logical removed from the land. So it's up to Alice to defeat the Queen and learn that it's OK to hold onto Wonderland and still act as an adult. Basically she can be a child at heart but an adult in her mind.
Overall, what should've been like bread and butter turned out to be like dead skunk and dog shit. If Burton were to tell the story of Alice in Wonderland and put his own dark and zany style on it, this would've been one of the best adaptations of the Alice story ever made, maybe even surpassing the 1951 Boemont version. Maybe Burton will remake this film in that style but for now here's my rating: 0.1/11

Based on the review I sent, you can probably tell I'm a die hard fan of Alice in Wonderland. I even had the 1951 Disney film on VHS (which of course came in a clamshell VHS case) when I was younger. I could talk for days about Alice in Wonderland which I'll do right now! *24 hours later* God dammit... my throat is sore! UUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!
I've been dying to play the American Mcgee games but I forget which consoles they're for. I have as follows: A Gameboy Advanced, A Gameboy Advanced SP, A Wii, An Xbox 360, Xbox One, Gamecube, Playstation 2, Nintendo 64, and an Original Xbox. I heard there was a PC version of it but my PC sucks major ballsacks in terms of performance (It's old enough to be in the second grade). I got my current PC when I was 10 years old! I've seen some of the designs of the characters, enviroments, etc and they all look rather great. I could see someone like Wednsday from The Addams Family (Remember that show? There was even a cartoon series of the show!) making a game like this. If that was the backstory, I'd imitate Fry from Futurama and be all like "Shut Up and Take My Money!" I think this game is one of the things that inspired the Creepypasta called Down the Rabbit Hole. That's one of my all time favorite pastas by the way!
So I don't know if I told you this or not but there's something called Alice in Wonderland syndrome. Well basically, it's a disorienting neurological condition that affects human perception. In other words, The affects are a lot like the main character in the Lewis Carroll story. Things get very large or small and their own bodies appear to change size. I think it could make for a very interesting Creepypasta. I remember it being one of the possible mental disorders that the protagonist in my Haunting Hour pasta could have. But I think I'm going to leave the mentally unstable thing up for interpretation. As I'm writing this, there's a glitch in the message editor where the blinking cursor line is not showing up. I can still tyoe which is good. Maybe it's only happening on my end since I did go on some website that froze up my browser for a bit.

I'd say for one of Alice in Wonderland inspired Pokemon could be one for the March Hare. The Pokemon could start out as a cute, clean, cuddly and happy bunny but as the Pokemon evolves, it's fur becomes more messed up, its starts to lose its sanity, and by the final form, it has become bigger and has lost all of its sanity. I'm thinking of a Cheshire Cat Pokemon that's a psychic and dark type.
As for AIWS, I think it's also called "Todd's Syndrome" and/or "Lilliputian Hallucinations" though I'm not sure if those were the names that came before the Lewis Carroll book.
I finally found a way to bridge the gap between the new part of the pasta and the other parts:
"When the two made it to the living room, they had sat down on the couch and another officer who seemed to have tree trunks for arms and legs had walked over to Hotaka and opened up her dark blue notebook to a clean page.

That's awful, good to hear that it's not as bad as it could have been though. I didn't pay him a whole lot of attention because he wasn't making sense XD I am glad that he's improved too, it was just a waste.
I didn't know that they actually went through with the marriage. I had figured it was just another hook to keep viewers interested and then they were going to break up for the umpteenth time, lol. Yeah, it's just going for the sake of going. I don't mind waiting on things, I'm fairly patient (at least to a degree). I always try to figure for tax before I buy something, but it does get kind of hard since they keep raising the tax rate. My tax rate is at 9% right now (I hate my hometown soooo very much).
That would be the worst. It's really crazy how they put themselves out there and do the things that they do. No greater pressure than knowing that a mess up could lead to death or paralyzation.

- I definitely would have got that wrong too. I seem to recall Charlie Sheen calling his two girlfriends/wives goddesses. Yeah, they did it to "save our hospital" which is really beyond saving. If I had a dying family member I'd drive them to the city over, because they are so incompetent. My best friend's dad was having a stroke and his mom took him to the hospital emergency room and it was four hours before they did anything (he's really messed up now too). She told them that they were worthless and she could have drove him to the hospital the city over which would have took 20 to 30 minutes. I have another friend who had a grandparent die after the same hospital gave them pills for no reason. Speaking of that hospital, they haven't paid their electric bill in over three years which is why they've raised the taxes, twice, in an attempt to save it. My town is run by idiots, they spent nearly a million dollars (I think it was $750,000 or $800,000) renovating the golf course (and I think it was just the water system). For reference, my town is small enough that you could drive all the way across it -horizontally and vertically- in ten minutes (8000 Population).

I heard about the death-trap house, they owner ended up triggering one of the traps by accident because he was so angry and it slipped his mind (and I think his mind slipped from him).

- Taking the door off and using it as a shield is brilliant! I wish people in films would slow down and think things through after triggering the first death trap, like in Saw II, it'd make things more believable and better. I feel like I've talked with you about the video game Nightshade before, but it was a vigilante hero video game and whenever your healthbar ran out you'd wake up in a death trap and had to figure out how to escape it or you got a game over (the fifth trap was a freeze ray which is inescapable). You might look over some of the death traps for inspiration in the future because they were really neat. If interested in Nightshade then scroll down to the post by Vroom Vroom for more info: http://forum.bioware.com/topic/540877-video-games-that-you-think-should-be-made/
- It'd be more terrifying to have someone that is smart and does everything right still end up dead, rather than someone who isn't bright and makes the audience go "Oh, come on!" now that I think about it XD Unfortunately, I think the rights to the series are split between a few individuals and Nintendo; not sure though. If you want to, but it sounds like a lot of work. I'd definitely read it!
- That's funny! Silly Riddler should have known that Batman would have solved it if he had tried to.
- Now I'm remembering the 'Kentucky Fried Rat' Urban Legend.

I've always wanted to recreate the ice cube prank, but it'd probably go horribly wrong.

For the next part in the story, you know after the cop runs away, should it just cut to the next scene or should there be a part where Hotaka gives a reaction? I forgot to ask after I sent my last message. I'm just afraid I'm making this story longer than it needs to be. But then again, maybe not.
Anyway, today is my dad's birthday and I'm going to celebrate it with him at this really great eatary called Vino's later today.

I won't spoil much if you haven't seen it already but basically the movie was really great at balancing out the funny and serious moments. Even the opening and especially the ending credits were well done. Animated Deadpool is cute.
At the cinema I went to, the narrator guy from Honest Trailers was in ads for this cinema club card that would allow you to get free tickets, snacks, and all sorts of other neat stuff. I thought he was going to be in the movie. SPOILERZ: He wasn't.

So the birthday party was great! I got to eat some delicious Buffalo chicken and fries and afterwards I had some double or triple chocolate cake. The cake was some of the best I ever ate! There was about 8 other people who attended the party and the place was kind of busy tonight.
If you want to play Gameboy games on your PC, search for a PC Gameboy emulator like Virtual Boy Advance and for the game search Pokemon (Gold, Silver, or Crystal) ROM. I use my Android device more often for emulation but PC emulation is still good.
As for the story, I'm thinking that if I just have the episode go to the next scene, it might be jarring to the reader. But at the same time, it could make for some good foreshadowing.

I'm glad you liked the emulation tip I gave you. I'm also glad you are having fun with the Alicemon project. I was going to look at the image you sent me tonight but I watched this asmr video to preview a tiny portion of it but ended up watching the whole thing and I fell asleep (I tried to resist temptation of sleep but I konked out in the last 5 minutes! Ugh!) I just woke up not that long ago but I can barely hold anything, including my tablet, to type.
How about this for Hotaka's reaction? This thing here: "As soon as Sugimoto reached the bottom of the stairs, Hotaka sat stiff in his chair as he stared through the open door for a few moments before shutting his eyes tightly and slightly shaking his head back and forth. After that, he immediately opened his eyes and continued to stare through the open door."

Sorry about your headache. I didn't even know you had one until now. (hug) The other thing in the Alice in Wonderland play I forgot to mention was that they used cookies instead of mushrooms for the consumables that Alice would have in Wonderland. I don't know why this is. Maybe they were planning on using actual food for the play and one of the actors had mushroom allergies (My dad has allergies to mushrooms if you must know) or maybe they thought the kids in the play were making too many "Mushrooms are Drugs! Zomg!" Jokes.
I've been a bit obsessed with sleep lately. Sometimes, I just want to literally sleep an entire day away. Has anyone ever done a story about a person who is addicted to sleep? I guess I like sleep because of all the weird dreams I have (I need to start writing in my dream journal again).
I will add in the part I sent in my previous message but I'm not sure if it will be tonight though since my body clock is all messed up due to Daylight Savings Time where I have to set the clock an hour ahead. Ugh! Why does America still do that? Here, I'll make up my own Daylight savings time related thing. In spring, spring back 2 hours. In fall, don't change the clock. There! Sleep problem solved!
Thanks for letting me know. I'll be looking forward to your feedback when you do get the time. Thanks as always!

Oh c'mon! I eat whipped cream out of a giant mushroom and take a surreal and scary boat ride with that guy from The Producers to work everyday. You know, the usual routine. (Note: I don't actually have a work to go to.)
Anyway, I talked to Doom for the first time in ages! He said that when the first episode of the Pokemon fan fiction is finished, he'd be more than happy to look at it. I also told about and showed him the progress I made in my Haunting Hour Pasta. No response on that front from him yet.
So in my fan fiction, I'm up to the part where Emily is getting dressed to head to Basswood City to pick up medicine for Albert. Here's what I have so far for the dressing part:
"When she got up there, Emily opened up one of the lower drawers of her bureau and pulled out a pair of black shorts with thick red lines running down both sides of it. She then walked over to her closet and jumped up to grab a short sleeved purple shirt off of the hanger. She wandered around her room for a bit until she found her golden locket with a silver Arceus on the front, lying on the desk. Since the chain was large enough to pull over her head, she wasted no time putting it on and immediately dashed over to the spot where she put her clothes. There, Emily carelessly threw her pajamas on the bed the moment she took them off and slipped on the other clothes with ease. Emily had almost gone downstairs before a lightbulb went off in her head. She peered down at her feet and saw that her blue and yellow sneakers weren't there! Realizing this, Emily scrambled back into her room and found out that they were hiding underneath her bed. She ran over to her closet and leaped as high as she could to grab an empty coat hanger. As soon as she landed, Emily went back to her bed and hastily dragged the sneakers out from underneath the bed. The moment she got the sneakers out, she laced them up faster than someone could say "Woah!"
As soon as her clothing situation was squared away, Emily swiped her bag off of the floor and sprinted down the stairs and into the living room so fast, that she almost crashed into the front door."
If you need the full episode, I can send it to you via Pastebin if that will help.
For the nose bleeding situation, when I get a nose bleed it's usually when I wake up in the morning. If I pinch my nose for a certain amount of time, the bleeding stops. My brother gets nosebleeds when the room temperature is too damn high or he sometimes gets them for no clear reason.
You wanna know something strange? Sometimes, when I watch TV, I end up falling asleep. When this happens, the dreams I have involve me not being able to adjust the volume or mute the program I'm watching even though I'm hitting the buttons on the remote that would allow me to do so. When I wake up from unexpected naps, my hear beats really fast and I can sometimes hear it without needing to put my hand on it. Is that normal or is it a sign of some hidden medical problem?
Reply to "Giovanni" message
My brother tilts his head back whenever he has a bloddy nose. He gets bloddy noses a lot more often then I do. I think this has to do with the fact that when he sneezes, he does it more than 5 times in one sneezing session. He shares this trait with my dad.
So I'm part of this survey program called "iSay" that's been conducted by Brown University since I was in 6th grade. I got a call from someone who works with the survey program from their personal cell number and they told me that as they were looking at a survey I took from 9... Freaking... Months... Ago, they found something concerning and they're setting me up to talk to somebody about it tomorrow. OK well if it was sooo concerning why did you wait 9 months later to tell me about it? Ugh! I think their "Concern" is that I don't go to public school even though I've been homeschooled since 2014. I've been answering "homeschool" for what school I attend. They have no homeschooling option so I put "homeschooling" under the other box. Yet for that survey 9 months ago, the home schooling option was problematic. Though they never really told me what the concern was specifically. I'm afraid that they might try to send unnecessary services to me or might try and take me away from my home. Have you ever heard of the Troubled Teen Industry? If not, click or tap this sentence for more information.
I'm extremely scared right now! The information I sent you is something you'd see in a horror story. Unfortunately, it's very real! (tight hug) I already told Doom about this and I might be overreacting to the entire situation but I'm honestly not sure how I should react.
Reply to "Behave Yourself" message
The strange thing about this whole situation is that iSay has never called me. Like... Ever. Also, for the past 9 months, there hasn't been any neglect or abuse that has been so bad to the point where removal from the home would be warranted from what I remember. On their surveys, there is no "I'm currently/formerly Homeschooled" option under questions regarding schooling so ever since 2014, I've been putting "Homeschooling" in the "Other" box regarding schooling.
Though, given that they called me about a survey I took 9 months ago because they were concerned without any additional information about it and how the person called me using their personal cell phone number and how they usually don't look over their data too much, this makes me very suspicious of this whole situation but I'll do my best and be as calm as possible. The person who called me said I'm not in trouble but that still doesn't help shed light on the situation. If they say something ridiculous, I'm still going to call them out on it.
Reply to "Next Time on Azu's Point" message
Yeah those reasons still upset me but I'm glad I didn't need to go into "Table Flipping Mad" mode on the person I talked to today otherwise it would've gotten out of hand and I'd end up destroying a part of my house.
I also uploaded a new Haunting Hour review today. I made a blog post about it that includes the link to the review if you're interested in checking it out.
Reply to "The Azu Show" message
Oh my god! I love The Amanda Show! I think it's really awesome and has managed to make me giggle every now and then. Too bad Amanda Bynes went kookoo for Cocoa Puffs a long time ago! Why do you think child actors almost always turn out to be like this? The only one I've seen who turned out okay was Mara Wilson (That little black haired chick from Mrs. Doubtfire and Matilda) I think it could make a good base for a horror story.
So there are a pair of new Pokemon games called Sun and Moon. For new Pokemon, I'd like to see a new giraffe Pokemon. Yes I know Girafarig is already a giraffe Pokemon but I'm thinking this new giraffe Pokemon could be something along the lines of this:
The little one in this picture is called an Okapi. The middle species is said to be extinct. I'm thinking that this Pokemon's type (the whole evolutionary line I mean) could be Electric and Grass. Electric because of the giraffe's horns resembling poles that forms what I call a "Bolt Bridge" in the middle of them. The grass typing would be due to its natural habitat being on the plains and it bring an herbivore. Giraffes are one of my favorite animals by the way.
I'd also like to see the return of the game corner with a few changes made to it. Here are the changes that would be made:
1. Instead of making the game corner resemble a casino, make it resemble an arcade like Dave and Buster's for example.
2. Add more variety of mini games. Instead of having slots and maybe roulette, how about include games like ski ball, table hockey, water shooting, whack a mole, etc? When you base your game corner on an arcade, there are an endless amount of possibilities for games you can come up with for games.
3. For the things you earn when you play the games, change the coins to tickets. For the coin case, change it to a "Ticket Tin" and increase the capacity from 9,999 to 20,000. With the tickets, you can exchange them for Pokemon you can't get legitimately in the games, TMs, miscellaneous trinkets like a Smoke Ball or Miricle Seed, clothing items if trainer customization is in these games, and even items for secret bases should they choose to include that feature.
With these tips, you can still keep the idea of the game corner alive and strive for the E or E10+ rating Game Freak wants to maintain in these games (Because gambling in games raises the rating of said game for some reason. Case in point, the 3DS re releases of the generation 1 Pokemon games that were in the UK or someplace that uses the PEGI system has the games rated as 12+ due to the presence of the game corner. Yes that's right folks, according to PEGI, you must be 12 or older to play as a 10 year old. Jim Carrey: Sssssssmokin!!)
As for your story, OMG HOW DARE THEY REMOVE IT?! THEY MUST BE BURNED AT THE STEAK! FOR THEY ARE THE WITCHES OF THE SLENDERMAN!!!!!! (Yeah he has some of those now). In all seriousness, it's not the worst thing I've read and I find it to be kind of funny. Speaking of Irish legends, I might use that as a topic I might talk about at my next Passport Project with my homeschooling group since the country we're learning about this month is Ireland. Yes... We're learning about Ireland in March. Coincidence? I think not!
Comics and Karasburg
I just like to save what I have because I'll never know when I might need it. While I do buy quite a bit, I tend to get things that are on sale and I know will entertain or last a long time. In regards to winning the lottery, there is no way I could blow over a million (excluding a lifetime worth of bills/taxes), there just isn't. There is the whole investment angle, but why? I wouldn't need more and as for a house and car, I'd just stick with something that is the size I need and that works. Oh, I think Netflix had that Documentary on it at one point and I had nearly watched it, but chose to watch one about Wal-Mart's bad practices instead. Lol, I used to have an Attack of the Killer Tomatoes video game for the NES XD
I read through it without reading your writer's commentary first and I understood most of it really well (with exception to not having background knowledge on a few characters). You are really good at drawing objects and I am jealous of that. I also liked your character designs (the faces, specifically), they were really cute. Furthermore, I couldn't help but admire how consistent they looked throughout; that's something I can never manage. It was interesting because you hardly ever get to see heroes struggle with emotions or have some sort of handicap in the comics and you give your characters things like Anomia. Great job and thank you for sharing. Also, hurray, you have a town :)
- You play as a boy/teenager who goes around jumping on and avoiding Killer Tomatoes. I never completed the game because it was hard and got stolen from my grandparents' basement (along with most of my NES games). I'd use them (tomatoes) to make a killer pizza.
- Nah, you don't sound pretentious, but most of those terms did go over my head :) Yeah, they should make superheroes debilitated and have them overcome/deal with their disabilities in each issue (I was going to make a joke about making Batman blind, but then Marvel would probably accuse DC of ripping off Daredevil).
- I could settle for the killer robots; you don't see that every day. That's really neat! I try to research things before writing, so I don't really have any instances like that (I feel like there was one, but I can't remember it). Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 18:11, March 20, 2016 (UTC)
- It was a blood relative and I have reason to believe that it was my aunt (she stole a lot of things that were "hers" years later when my grandpa died, so that just reinforces it in my mind). Disregarding that, one of the big tip-offs to it having been her is that their were two copies of Super Mario Bros 3, mine and her son's, the one that didn't work (which had her son's name on it) was the one that was left behind which is likely something she'd know. While one could argue that it was one of my cousins, I am the youngest child by four years and none of them had any interest in the NES games or hardly visited my grandparents at the point the games were stolen (and likely sold). Luckily Nightshade and Space Shuttle Simulator (my favorites) were left behind along with around 15 others.
- I vaguely remember Bird Man and Space Ghost, I really loved those shows back in the day.
- Lol, Kryptonic Acid. That should definitely have killed him even when ignoring how ridiculous its creation was. Even smart people have their bad days XD You should totally make a comic where someone declares "Well, it’s certainly not a solid, you goof!”
- Ugh, thieves. I'm sorry that happened, it's the worst when irreplaceable stuff is stolen. Stealing is the third highest offense that one could commit against another person in my books. I can understand envy and wanting what other people has, but geez. It's so disrespectful and awful, people just need to learn to do without if they can't earn/afford it until they can.
- That'd be awesome! No, I tend to watch a few clips every now and then, but find the show hit and miss. What you just told me is a hit XD
- I took some art classes in high school (drawing, painting, pottery) and an online one in college where I just parroted back what I read in the books and gave opinions using the definitions, but none of the terminology ever really stuck with me. I was always more interested in making art, rather than how people tried to classify art as, you know? I think a lot of it has to do with me being the loner type that goes off and does their own thing. I remember back when I was making a sculpture of an alien who had fought in a battle and I wanted to give it a gun and the art teacher said no when she saw the gun that I argued and argued, "Just let me do my own thing. The rule is stupid and overly sensitive." Needless to say I lost and wasn't even allowed to give it a sword. I've actually still got the sculpture and have it sitting a top my dresser, but man do I wish it had a gun. I guess I'd fall under the surrealism category.
- That's awful and really sad :(
- Speaking of disarming the sculpture, I actually removed the arm that was to be its gun arm and painted it like it had been cut off (yellow and red so it looked like it was done so with heat), so the sculpture ended up being more violent than it would have if I had just been allowed to give it the gun, lol. I can't because it wouldn't match since I had put the figure in a kiln at the school. I did get a last laugh of sorts though. I ended up making another alien and I gave this one sword arms (incredibly pointy arms) with the implication being that it had cut off the other alien's hand. Unfortunately, the first sculpture was heating in the kiln so I couldn't check how big it was and the scaling is off between the two by probably 3 or 4 inches, if not more.
- Yep, sword arms alien is smaller and that's true XD I'll look into posting pictures of them with my terrible webcam if you are interested. Haha, the bigger dogs are usually gentle giants. I've actually seen an instance where a bigger dog was friends with a smaller dog and came to help them when it thought its small friend was in trouble (unfortunately, they thought I was the threat in that instance because dogs dislike UPS couriers).
- I remember that! I miss Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry. Foghorn Leghorn was my favorite because he was just so funny and ignorant, but he never let that stop him XD
- Dogs are really really really smart and have a lot of personality to them (at least on average).
- Have you seen Batman v Superman yet? I've heard very mixed things about it, though I'm honestly not expecting a lot out of it just because I already knew that they were going to cram a lot of characters into the film (big no no). I've heard that Ben Affleck is actually a really good Batman, which is surprising to me. But then again, Michael Keaton got a lot of backlash and outcry when he was announced to be playing Batman and he ended up being the best one in film (in my opinion). The Suicide Squad movie looks interesting though! I'm hoping that they do Harley Quinn and Deadshot right. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 16:15, March 25, 2016 (UTC)
- I have fairly small interest in it myself just because I expect it to be terrible. That's neat, I didn't know that they got Adam West on the show. Adam is the best, he owns two Meese (mooses) and they are named Moose Wayne and Martha Wayne; no joke. I haven't seen that movie, but it sounds neat. Yeah, Keaton definitely has good range.
- So it'll be good :P Awesome, please let me know when you do. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 19:05, March 26, 2016 (UTC)
That was dark and good. I found it sort of funny and really poetic that Fox said that capital punishment is wrong and that only god can decide one's fate and in the next panel we discover that Boa had died of a seizure; hmmm. It's a shame that some of the pages are fading :( I'm glad that they are still readable though. Thank you for sharing the comics with me :)
Sorry that it is taking me so long to reply, there's some family stuff going on that I don't want to talk about on an open chat. Hopefully things resolve favorably soon. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 18:34, March 27, 2016 (UTC)
Reply to "Ebert's Concerned!" Message
Speaking of Ebert, he along with Siskel reviewed a movie called "North" (1994) starring Elijah Wood and Ebert described it as quote "This movie is the worst movie we've ever reviewed in the 19 years we've been doing this show!" The Nostalgia Critic did a whole review of the movie which I don't know if you watched or not. Here's the link to it anyway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lKG1r1Gslg
I'm actually trying to get into game development and whatnot. I need to get in some practice first with using programs for this sort of thing. There are online courses for this where I am but they cost $100 for the entire class which is a six week course. I got great ideas but I need to learn how to make those ideas come to life first.

I forgot to mention this in my last message but there's actually a Creepypasta that features a giraffe puppet called Mr. Tartar from well... Mr. Tartar. Here's a reading of the story if you're interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6Goi8C_7TQ
I didn't know they sold Geoffrey Giraffe plushies. Do they still sell them or is that toyline discontinued? Because I'd like to have my very own giraffe to hug.
So I recently watch 75% of the Pokemon Origins special (This special is a lot closer to the Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow games and its storyline). It was spectacular. I loved everything about it. The voice acting, animation, and the battles were like riding a wild tiger through a speeding tornado in a hurricane. Hell, even the music was fantastic! However, The special is only 4 parts long and while I would've liked to see an entire part like the first part where we see Red battle Brock, I understand why they skipped over the other leaders like Misty and Lt. Surge as they're only mentioned at the beginning of part 2. It's stuff like this that makes me wish it was a full series like the actual Pokemon anime since it would fix problems like this.
I actually remember watching a few episodes of Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Teen Nick a long time ago. I also watched the animated series when I was younger. I have yet to see Clarissa. Hannibal: Tell me about the lambs, Clarissa! I heard that both of the Sabrina series were based on an Archie comic of the same name. The comic might've also been the inspiration for Sabrina's name from Pokemon, who is my favorite gym leader because of the anime incarnation. I have a thing for witchcraft and the idea of psychic phenomena.
The movie North is based on a book that has its synopsis as its title for whatever reason. The movie is a collection of the most over the top stereotypes ever. Like for example, the movie thinks all Texans dress like cowboys, eat every type of meat ever in one meal, and have musical numbers that are in tune of the Bonanza theme. Who wrote that part? A Yankee? Ugh! There's also a part where North is in Hawaii and the governor of the state (who is adopting North along with his wife) who says onto him: "Hawaii is a lush and fertile land. We only have one barren area on our islands. Unfortunately it's... Mrs. Ho." What the hell is up with that line? Then later in the Hawaii segment, the governor unveils a billboard where it shows an octopus pulling on North's bathing suit and showing his crack. The reason for this sign is because the governor wants to attract visitors to the state. In today's PC world for a film like this to get made let alone for kids is really astounding! Let Elijah Woods' nether regions haunt your dreams tonight!
Reply to "North went South" message
I think the Pokemon Origins special came out before X and Y hence the advertisment for mega evolution towards the end of the special. So that would be around 2013 or so. I'm not sure if that would be consideredn "new" to you. Regardless, it's still a really great special that I'd really like to see be made into a full series. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE NINTENDO OR GAME FREAK OR WHO'S EVER IN CHARGE OF THAT STUFF!!
I like the idea that North had. It's basically this kid who has these shitty parents and he basically divorces them and searches the world for better ones. It could make for a really emotional and heartwarming story. Maybe you could focus on just how painful it is for North being ignored can be despite being a seemingly nice and talented person. How about not making the people who want to adopt him just stereotypes of various cultures? How about significantly reducing the amount of humor and only add it in every once in awhile?

I started playing Pokemon Heartgold today. Since DS emulation is in its infancy, the emulator is a bit laggy but other than that that, the game is really fun. I would play the game on a real DS but I lost mine a long time ago. My current team is a level 16 Quilava named Donny and a level 16 HootHoot named Nelson. I grinded a lot in the beginning of my adventure if you couldn't tell.
I'm having Snaketounge look at my pasta again and I'm not sure what is going to happen in chapter 12. I got writer's block... Again! Ugh! Either that or I'm trying to juggle too many projects at once. I got the Pokemon fan fiction, this pasta, my homeschool work, and the Haunting Hour reviews.
People say that using electronics at night can keep you up but I find that when I use electronics at night, they make me feel sleepy. I also have a blue light filter for the device's screen via a special app. I often use my tablet at night if you wanted to know. Perhaps I'm the only person in the world who gets sleepier the more I use electronics at night.
Reply to "Friggin Emulators! How Do They Work?" Message
Since the generation two Pokemon games are on game boy colour, you will need a GBC emulator. Here is a link that will list a few examples of them: http://www.emuparadise.mobi/Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Emulators/11
To play the game, you first need to download a ROM. Click this link and go to the download section:
Once you download the file, you'll have to extract it with a program like WinZip. When you extract the file, find the file with a ".gbc" file extension. Grab it and drag it to your desktop if using a desktop OS like windows, Open your GBC emulator and go to "Open ROM" and go to desktop or where ever you put the file, double click it and boom! You're playing the game! If you're using an emulator on a mobile OS like Android or iOS, extract the file with EasyUnrar or similar programs until you see a file with a ".gbc" extension. Unlike with the desktop OS, just go to your emulator program if you're using a mobile device, find the folder the rom is in, tap it and boom! You're done!
I hope my instructions were clear enough for you. If not, let me know.
Tomorrow, I'm going to this trampoline park with some of the graduating class from the homeschooling group. There's a trampoline park near my house though there's another one in the state that's further away and that's the one I'm going to go to. The event is from 12pm to 3pm and since my dad had surgery today, he's not sure if he's going to be able to pick me up. I'm staying over at my mom's house tonight since I got back from an art class at around 6pm and she didn't want to do anymore driving today.
So good news! The Haunting Hour Review is going to be up tomorrow! Yaaay! I think this is a schedule that's going to work though I'll have to wait and see.
I recently watched a blameitonjorge video today. It was his Top 20 Disney Urban Legends Rumoured to Be True. I love the It's a Small World piano cover that plays in the background of the video. The song gives me an idea for a video game. Here's the premise:
"Sometime in Florida, the swampy areas become polluted by various chemicals from human water treatment facilities. The chemicals not only cause the gators and crocs who live in these swamps to grow twice or in some cases five times their size, but it makes them able to live outside of water for extremely long periods of time and causes them to be more aggressive. They attack the people of Florida and soon, the state becomes overtaken by the reptilian beasts. Eventually the state becomes abandoned with the exception of two people. These people are two best friends named Jeanine and Alex who were university students studying chemical engineering before the Gatorocolypse. Since everyone either left or got eaten by the gators and crocs, it's up to them to fight off the crocs and gators and clean up the swamps, hopefully stopping the Gatorocolypse!"
One of the locations that could be in this game is an apocalyptic Disney World and that Small World piano mix could play in the background. The other thing that could be in the game is in the opening sequence during a montage explaining what's happening in Florida, JonTron can appear in like a video or something and it could play like this: "This is going to be an exciting episode because today... We're going to Florida! *Shows clip of mutant gators and crocs attacking people* On second thought... Let's not go to Florida!" The other idea I had was that, depending on the area you travel to in Florida, the crocs and gators can be different colours, sizes, and even have different facial features.
Request For Critique
I have two stories in Writer's Workshop that I would like some honest feedback about and I wondering if you would care to take a look at these.
Yes, please do.
Reply to "Tounge and Cheek" message
I think the gators and crocs could have the sunglasses in the areas where the sunlight is the harshest in Florida. I could have another scene in the opening where it cuts to news stations talking about the Gatorpocolypse. For example, one scene will show a Fox News like channel with a person saying "Quite frankly, I think the democrats are to blame for this whole 'Gatorpocolypse' thing." There will be a static transition after that scene to a scene on a more liberal news network where they're all like "Personawwy. I think those waskely wepubwicans awe to bwame." Then the static transition will cut to a moderate news network with a guy sitting there in silence for a moment before grabbing a plushie of Gummy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, showing a model of Florida with some 3D buildings and going "RAWR GATORZ!!" While waving the plusie all over the model and destroying the buildings with it.
So I got a new Haunting Hour review up today: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:TheAzumangaDaiohFan/New_Haunting_Hour_Review!_(Episode_31)_3/25/16
It surprisingly still has no comments on it, even after I uploaded it at around 4pm today. I think the last blog post I did got comments at a faster rate if I'm not mistaken.
The Nostalgia Critic did a review of an animated version of The King and I made by the people who wrote the totally obscure song "Silver and Gold." The film he reviewed wasn't all that great. Even the Getting to Know You song was badly executed because the focused on stuff that should be in the background and didn't focus on the things that should be in the background. We also don't get to know most of the characters in the movie. YAAAAAAAAAAAY!
Reply to "Where To Put the Song?" message
You could put the "Whistle a Happy Tune" song over clips of multiple explosions or the baptism scene from The Godfather where people are getting shot up. I think it would make for good comedy.
I replied to your comment on my recent blog post about the new review. I'm conflicted as to whether or not I should throw in more clues into the Pokepasta to let the audience know what's going on. On the one hand, if I leave the extra clues out, it adds a lot of mystery and ambiguity and lets the audience draw their own conclusions as to what's happening. On the other hand, throwing a few more clues will give the audience a better picture of what's going on but may suck out some of the mystery that could make it great.
Yeah, plot twists make everything better (but only if they make sense). One thing that I really love about Fate/Zero is the scale of the plot twists and how imaginative they are. Speaking of the Fate series, Fate Stay/Night Heaven's Feel is getting 3 movies and Fate Extra is getting an animation, maybe even a series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88XINGg0WWM (I can't read Japanese beyond a couple of characters, so I don't know what it is saying).
That'd make for a good story and it'd show that Fox's faith in Boa was rewarded which makes him not risk coming across as preachy on believing that capital punishment is wrong.
Thanks. I'm just having a hard time concentrating on things (especially writing), because when I'm not occupied my mind loops back to thinking about my family problem. Ah, don't worry about it, I'm going to earn it fair and square, besides that'd be pointsgaming. Thank you, though. Me too. I appreciate it. Buckle up!

- Watchmojo (you can find them on YouTube) has some pretty good top 10 lists and I think they've done one on plot twists that "made no sense and ruined the entire film". The symbols are technically letters, but they are so confusing. It doesn't help that there are three written Japanese languages and that they tend to blend the alphabet from two of them (sometimes even all three) together in writing.
- I was going to ask if one of them faked their death, but you answered it XD Fresh start or to bide time to cause more trouble? Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 17:10, March 29, 2016 (UTC)
- One of these days I'll get them all nailed down into my brain (ouch). It feels like I've chosen the hardest language to learn, even though English is supposedly harder. Can you believe that the Japanese have to learn English in addition to the three written Japanese languages? They are really smart, I tell you! I'm planning on buying some language books that way I can be better taught. That's a real neat way for Naruto to have done and handled that. It just goes to show how difficult translating things can be and how things sometimes can't translate (though the team did find a very creative and intelligent alternative solution to the problem).
- I meant that as more of a rhetorical question XD That's neat though, not many stories have villains that come over to the good side (if they do, they usually die in that issue for shock value and feels). It makes sense though, because people can change beliefs. I love that show and I'm glad it is back :D
- I took French class and we never really did anything like that. One class we got to watch Ratatouille (spelling?) and that was it. I was quite bothered by the fact that we started the movie and never finished it or even watched it during a second class period. My french class also only had four people in it (that's counting me) XD
- It's so awful! I get it, it's easy shock factor and "makes them pay for what they've done". However, it would be much more interesting to see how they adapt and attempt to atone for what they've done as well as to watch them deal with the consequences. Buckle up!

- Yeah (not like much I was taught in Middle School onward stuck anyway). That'd bug me, nut not with A Christmas Story because I dislike that film. I actually used to love it, but the networks, particularly TBS, air it way too much each year that it becomes an annoyance (it takes up time slots in which something else could be aired). They made a sequel to that with different actors to play the characters because it was made a long time after the original which I saw last Christmas and thought was okay. It was fun having four people, since I was already friends with two of the three others and made friends with the third. I miss having that class and being able to goof around with them at the teacher's expense XD
- I had no idea there was merchandise (beyond the films) for it. It make sense given how popular it is though. That's really interesting to me, I'm a fan of knowing special effects in movies. That's actually why I pre-ordered the Star Wars 7 Blu Ray from Target, because it has interviews and behind the scenes stuff (retailer) exclusive to it. That is a really specific set of knowledge to have XD Was your dad a science teacher or a scientist?
- Wow, you have definitely put a lot of time into it (not only in regards to drawing, but to have such an in-depth idea). I'm glad you had fun making the outfits! Vermilion Bird is my favorite, just pops out at me.
- Oh, I believe I've seen leg lamps for sale before as gag gifts, but I never attributed them to the film for some reason. I'd like to shoot a low budge $10,000 film some day, but I have no idea what the script would be, other than cheap and hopefully entertaining XD Maybe adding heat? You could just seek to flood the town with molasses and then have your ccharacters make their moves: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Molasses_Flood
- That's neat. I bet you were well-behaved at school XD It probably would have been super awkward to get in trouble at school in your case. Aw, that's cute. My dad usually helped me with my math too.
- I don't remember if I did or not, but I went back and looked. I approve! That costume looks really sleek because of the design and color. Throwing arrows? Man, I'm bad with the regular ones. Judge's Pens sound really interesting, and deadly even.
- Lol, I can't wait! I'm sensing fierceness is a key theme here :P Maybe you don't know that you know what your talking about, so you know, but you don't exactly know?
- Ah, gotcha. Reminds me of that idiot farmer who decided to burn his field last week in 40-50 MPH winds and caused a big fire which is still going (thankfully it hasn't travelled into any towns, though it has destroyed some houses and has been going on for a little over a week.) Last week, the day after it started I was over at a friends house and my friend got a text from one of his friends who lived a city over and she asked him if it was smokey outside. We both went outside and sure enough it was smokey to the point that visibility was really bad and the air smelt like soot. To put things into perspective, the origin point of the fire started a state over and I live about 50 minutes away from the state line. The smoke was only visible and smellable at my location for a few hours and hasn't been since that day. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 04:33, April 3, 2016 (UTC)
- I was most of the time, but sometimes I wasn't because I was the class clown until around 16. Everyone pretty much outgrew my material after that and I just sort of fell out of touch with everyone and started focusing on writing and solo type stuff. I wouldn't know, I nev... I only watch those sometimes...
- Chemicals are really weird, but I've found that a lot of the mushy stuff (molasses is liquid-like right?) reacts to heat often by turning gaseous. I could be completely mistaken though, I haven't done Chemistry stuff in 7 years and I wasn't that great at it to begin with (I wasn't terrible either). LOL Just have shtick in the film to where someone says "He doesn't know that he knows what he's talking about, so he knows, but don't exactly know." after the referenced person goes on a long tangent about a monster/killer/threat.
- Better to have it and not need it, rather than to need it and not have it, especially when it comes to weapons when dealing with evil. Haha, Colin and Ryan are my two favorites.
- Fires are fun, but not when they destroy the neighborhood. Back when I lived with some friends, we used to have bonfires in our backyard all the time. We never burned down anything, but we did come fairly close to burning down our house once. We got the bright idea to pile a bunch of wood (and a broken chair) really high up and then the fire melted out one of the bottom pieces of wood which caused the rest of the flaming wood to fall on the grass. That day we discovered our hose didn't work, so we ended up just beating up the fire with unlit pieces of wood, it was hilarious to watch. Oh dear, now you probably think I'm a psychopath XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 21:13, April 4, 2016 (UTC)

Music video sounds like as good a guess as any in regards to geishas hitting a fire with instruments. Big Gulp JR! I liked it! I did feel that the wall (how it was colored) made some of the objects a bit hard to see on a couple of scenes, but it was minor and didn't hamper my enjoyment. I'd read a page and then read your details about that page and I understood everything and got most of the references (I figured Barry was referencing a Flash-like character since Barry is the name of one of the Flashes).

Reply to "Easter Grass" message
I think I might've had something similar to the grass when I was a kid though I'm not sure. I've heard of edible paper though and I remember seeing an ad for it in a Disney Adventures magazine. That magazine went defunct in 2007 though I'm not sure why. I think I still have a few issues of said magazine lying around somewhere. These magazines were my brothers when he was a kid.
So someone had commented on my latest blog about the pokepasta and suggested a few changes be implemented. I did just that and this is the result: http://pastebin.com/15iGUNAf
What you said about living in the Marvel Universe reminds me of Drowzee for some reason. In some of its Pokédex entries it says:
"If your nose becomes itchy while you are sleeping, it's a sure sign that one of these Pokémon is standing above your pillow and trying to eat you dream through your nostrils."
Reply to "Spoopy Pokedex" message
I kind of like the spooky Pokedex entries. I'm hard to scare! C'mon scare me! (Morsso and Ratafak show up simultaneously and do some stuff which is unintentionally scary) Aaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! Can we get Pokemon based on those characters? In fact, can we get a whole horror themed Pokemon game? I would love that. It would be a very atmospheric game where the player will get stalked by one of these two characters depending on what gender the player is. For example, if the player is male, they will be stalked by Morsso. If the player is female, they will be stalked by Ratafak. If the player picks neither male or female, they can play as Ratafak or Morsso. They could be the same gender as the player character and could disguise themselves as Pokemon.
So I noticed you read the revised version of my Pokepasta and I'm glad to hear that you liked it. I really want to submit it to spin-off appeal but I'm afraid it might get rejected. I'll go over the story one more time to see if it needs anymore tweaking.
Reply to "Gotta Eat Em All!" Message
Oh my god. The Pokemon Mac and Cheese brings me back all the way to when I was 4 or 5. I used to have Mac and cheese all the time. It was my favorite childhood meal and I remember going to this campground with my family's camper. We had a sink and oven in our camper and one of the meals I ate over at the camp was Pokemon Mac and Cheese. I also brought either my Gameboy Advanced or Gameboy Advanced SP with me on the trip and played Pokemon Crystal. Great! Now I have the urge to look up Mac and cheese recipes on the internet. Also, why does auto correct think I'm referring to Apple when I say Mac? Yes tablet, I like to eat overly priced machinery covered in cheese!
So I got a message back from Doom who said he read my Pokemon pasta. I was really surprised when he said this: "It looked good though I wish I knew what type of Pokemon she turned into." Hmm... Let's see... A Pokemon with orange skin, sea green eyes, and a flame at the end of its tail. Could it be a Sandshrew?! Tune in tomorrow to find out! Same Poke time! Same Pokechannel! (Spoilers!! It's a Charmander :P)
I finished writing a new Haunting Hour but it won't be uploaded til next Friday. If you want, I can send you a pastebin link to preview the review. I was watching this and I burst into laughter the very second it started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70OT3UZbhHs
Sorry I didn't get this to you earlier, I had some trouble with my internet since my tablet's battery was low. That hasn't happened before though.
Reply to "Ego Filled Tablet" message
So pastebin removed my pasta and I don't know why. I updated the link to the story on my blogpost about it. Hopefully that shouldn't happen again. I never set an expiration date for it nor did I delete the post on pastebin. Weird huh? I've never had that happen to me before. I posted the pasta a few times. One was the starting pasta. The next one was showing the improvements for the pasta but was glitching and not showing the improvements for some reason. The third one was the charm though!
I want to turn off auto correct but if I do, I'll have to go back and correct mistakes which takes more time to do and slows me down. Ugh! It's like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. Uuuuugh! I can't win with it!
I can't believe how funny the Pokemon Abridged series is! I first heard of it in Linkara's Pokemon Reburst video when he played a clip that went "I wonder what Pokemon it is" in certain parts of the video. I'm not sure which episode that's from though. I admit, I was never too fond of Ash as the protagonist of the anime, even as a kid. I guess this is because I never related to the character. If you ask me, I think Misty would've been my pick for the anime's protagonist since me and her have a lot more in common and because of this, I have a much better emotional connection to her and want to root for her all the way through the series. For Pikachu, here's what I propose.
On Misty's adventure, as she is setting up camp for the night, she overhears a conversation not too far away and decides to check it out. When she gets over there, she sees a little boy with a Pikachu. The boy says to the Pikachu: "Well Peter, it looks like this is where we... Um... (sigh)... Part ways." At first, Peter doesn't understand him. Then the boy clarifies that Peter can't live with him anymore because his father said he didn't have the proper EVs, which makes Peter hug the boy's leg. The boy tells Peter that he still can't be with him anymore and Peter hugs the leg tighter and starts to cry. Then, Misty sighs loudly which gets her discovered by the boy. Peter stops hugging his leg and gets on all fours, starts to growl, and flurries of small sparks light up its cheeks. Misty then emerges from the bushes and the boy breaths a sigh of relief that it wasn't his father watching in the bushes. Misty then goes into a tirade about how bad of a father the boy has which leads to him lashing out at Misty, saying how there's nothing he can do to convince his father otherwise as he is a stubborn man. While this is happening, Peter's head constantly switches from the boy's side to Misty's side and its breathing becomes more rapid and loud until eventually shocks both the boy and Misty. Peter then runs away into the bushes and starts to loudly sob. The boy and Misty eventually find Peter and the boy picks him up and starts petting him to calm him down. The boy then says: "Peter, if I give you something that's very important to me, will you promise to take care of it?" Peter then looks up at the boy and nods. The boy puts Peter down and takes something out of his pocket. It turns out be a Light Ball which he thinks is a special type of Pokeball along with a photo of him and Peter. Then, Peter turns around and looks up at Misty. Misty says that she isn't really good with electric Pokemon as she is a water type trainer and refuses to take Peter. However, Peter keeps looking at her until Misty finally gives in and decided to take Peter under her wing. Peter runs to the boy and gives him one last heartfelt hug before jumping into Misty's arms.
I think this idea could allow Misty to develop her character and allow her to expand her Pokemon training skills by learning how to work with more than one type, which is unusual given that most gym leaders only use one type. This can also be a very good way of giving the audience to care about this Pikachu named Peter and would allow Peter to have a lot more personality.
Reply to "April Fools" message
Funny thing. As I was writing that part, I had the exact same idea going through my head. Did you happen to read my mind through the internet? That would be mind blowing if that were the case.
So I submitted my Pokepasta to spin-off appeal and to sum up, I struck out. The main problems with the story were that it felt rushed, had an anticlimactic ending, and needed more story and emotion behind it. In other words, the vague angle completely backfired. I had an idea to fix this however. As the protagonist is running away from the room, they gave flashbacks as to what had happened and when they get to the bathroom, all the flashbacks comeback all at once and everything comes full circle. Here's a sample of what I mean:
"As I made my way down the hallway, a thought had suddenly popped into my head. In this thought, there were two women and one man surrounding a peach coloured steel table with wheels that was placed in front of what looked like an ivory doughnut with beige colouring around the middle of it. Two of the women that surrounded the table were wearing paper white lab coats that went down to their knees. They each held a clipboard in their hand and they seemed to be jotting something down. The man that surrounded the table wore a Red Sox T-shirt and black jeans and seemed to be looking down at the table. On the table, I saw a little girl who had casts covering both her arms and legs. Her eyes were light green with a little bit of brown in the middle and they stared upward at the ceiling. "Are you sure this is going to help me daddy?" The girl said. "I hope so, sweetie. Otherwise, I don't know what else to do." Said her father as he gently clenched her hand.
Before I was able to figure out what happened next, I suddenly found myself inches away from a dark blue door with a black bar running through the middle of it. I leaped up and hit the black bar with all of my might. To my surprise, I had enough strength to open the door just wide enough for me to get through."
The good news is that I got my feet wet and now I know how to make the story even better.

I think the flashback idea is going to work best for this story. I think the next flashback will have the father and one of the women argue about the procedure. The woman will say that she's not comfortable with doing it seeing as how the girl is a bit young for it. The father will say that he promised that his daughter would get stong and healthy bones and he's wants his promise fufilled. While the two are arguing, the other woman will start the procedure so the girl wouldn't have to witness anymore of the arguing as she and the little girl are clearly bothered by it.
Reply to "Everything Leads to The Producers!!!" message
Regarding the procedure, that's a good question. I guess it could be a side effect of not doing the procedure properly (i.e Starting the machine or procedure at an incorrect time before every componant is inspected for defects). I'm not too sure how I can implement that explanation into the story but I'll look at my story again to check.
When I had my dream last night, I was doing some research on Japan and watching this video called "5 Scariest Insane Real World Cults" by a user called CreepsMcPasta.
I guess the two things just combined in my dreams for whatever reason. I think I might just go to spin off appeal again and present the re re worked story to them since the story never actually got deleted off of the wiki.
Elvis and Comics
Yeah, that was what I meant. I hope you don't take that as a complaint though, it didn't bother me and is way better than what I could do. I'm really jealous of your ability to draw fingers (they were perfect in the Super Creature snapping his fingers panel), mine always look broken or deformed XD
I don't actually care for music much, but I do like Elvis. I actually have an Elvis CD floating around somewhere. There was this one small restaurant-chain that used to have jukeboxes at every booth and I'd always beg my mom for quarters so we could listen to Elvis while we ate XD Jailhouse Rock is my favorite of his.

- Believe it or not, I've never actually seen Lilo and Stitch, though I do remember when the film came out. Disregarding the Marvel and Star Wars films, the last Disney movie I saw was Monster's INC. No particular reason for it mind you, it is just how things have worked out (I've been meaning to see Toy Story 3, though the fact that they are making a 4th one has somewhat dampened my enthusiasm for it).
- Him having PTSD makes sense and the issue hinted at it. I noticed a couple of scenes where Flying Fox seemed really shaken after being poisoned and when dealing with Specter. You did a great job with foreshadowing it! Thank goodness he managed to hold himself together during the crisis.

I also regret using gloss paint on the red one (wanted to try something new). There's some details that don't show up well in the picture, like the blue one has a belly button and a red cape. The red one has eyes, but I didn't paint them in, so they look invisible; it's also tripod-legged. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Reply to "Late Reply" message
Sorry I didn't reply to you sooner but Ive been caught up in some other projects like my presentation for my homeschool Passport Project on Japan. I've been trying to compile facts about Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of Pokemon. I have some facts collected but I'm trying to include more in my presentation and arranging the facts is a bit tough for me since I want to focus on Pokemon just as much as Satoshi himself in my presentation. I'm going to dress up like Erika from the Pokemon games since she represents traditional Japanese beauty which seemlessly ties into the theme of Japan. She's also one of my favorite gym leaders. She's so beautiful that there's an old man outside her gym who comments on the beautiful women in her gym (presumably including herself). Then in generation 4, the old man went to Perverts Anonymous and recognized that there's more to woman than just their sexy bodies. What a lovely story arc. Seriously, can we get a story focused around that character? Because I'd think he'd make an interesting protagonist.
As for your story, I completely forgot about it until now. I'll look at it when I get the chance. Sorry I forgot about it but I do remember the title very vividly. I'm still trying to get over my writer's block for my R.L Stine Pasta. Maybe I'll send you what I have so far and you can write what's going to happen in Chapter 12. Yes, the writer's block has forced me to resort to that.
Glad to be back. Hope all is well with you. Happy two-weeks-late Easter and one-week-late April Fool's. Oh, and three-weeks-late St. Patrick's Day. And a really late Happy Groundhog's Day.

Reply to "The Death of Yogi" message
When I read the line about Berra's death, I thought it read "It was interesting this morning that Yogi Berra died". I thought he died today and because of this, I thought that our little talk about him yesterday contributed to his death. Then that would allow Rod Serling to come back to life and make another Twilight Zone series.
I never really thought about listening to music while I read the pasta. I guess because I thought it had to be a certain type of music (i.e instrumental that used mostly nature's sounds as instruments) so that way it didn't distract you from reading or something. Back in public school, specifically high school, we were sometimes allowed to listen to music but it had to be instrumental because they said Science dictated that reading while listening to vocal filled music hindered your reading comprehension. I've always doubted the claim since I could listen to AC/DC and have no issues with understanding what I'm reading.
Dementia makes people spell words at random? I had no idea about that part of it. I always think of it as being delusional or forgetting who they were or something like that.
As for Yogi's inspiration, I watched Yogi Bear cartoons all the time as a kid and I never got an Art Carney/Honeymooners vibe from him. I attribute that more to The Flinstones from their concept. Then again, I never heard of Art Carney as a kid but I've heard of The Honeymooners from a Family Guy skit about the show. It was in FG's episode on the FCC I think.
Yeah, I probably should've just allowed comments, but I didn't want to make anyone feel like they had to say something. That sucks about the headaches; perhaps an Allmark card will cheer you up ; ) We need to make Allmark a household name. Slogan: "Are you a nihilist? Are you completely apathetic about what happens to those around you? If the whole world caught on fire tomorrow, would you simply sleep through it? If so, then we just may have the card for you!"
