[Insert Title Here] – A Discussion on Creative Bankruptcy

We’ve All Been There

You Know the feeling where you don’t know what to write about despite the seemingly infinite amount of things you could be writing about? That’s me right now. Today I’ll be talking about feeling creatively spent, even when you still have plenty of ideas. Sorry for the lack of reviews on my part lately too, I guess I just have a lot of discussion lately. With that, let’s get to it. Continue reading “[Insert Title Here] – A Discussion on Creative Bankruptcy”

Reading, Writing & Awards – Trying to Keep up (but Failing)

Last Week I Saw a Tweet

In case you don’t know what tweet I’m talking about, take a second and look at it here. Arthifis explains that he is having a hard time keeping up with reading everyone’s posts. I can totally relate. Around the same time I was thinking of writing an article addressing why I haven’t been reading as much as I used to as well as responding to the (many) blog award nominations I receive. Seeing how this is an issue we probably all face, or will at some point, let’s have ourselves a discussion on the topic.

Watching Anime on Amazon – Any Good?

Now That Strike is Gone…

As many of you already know, Amazon has gotten rid of their additional pay wall for anime and everything has reverted back to Prime members. That’s great news for me, Strike was something just riddled with problems. I’m not here to complain about that though, instead I’ll be talking about my thoughts on their streaming service and if it may be something you might want to use.

Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds

Doing Something a bit Different

Today I felt like talking about my desktop backgrounds and my thought process behind how and why I choose the ones I have. This article is a good way to get to know me some more and an opportunity for folks to share some cool images with each other. This isn’t really meant to be in-depth or anything, just for fun. I know this is something fairly atypical of me but I hope you’ll indulge me a bit and enjoy 🙂  Continue reading “Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds”

The First (and Last) Creator Showcase – December 2017

Hello Everybody!

At the start of the month you may remember that I started up a thing called the Creator Showcase. The idea was for people to promote and share content they had created from the month prior for people who may have missed it and to reach a wider audience. Then at the start of the next month I would share some of the submissions (and yes I did read all of them). First of all, let me thank everybody who participated. Unfortunately, I just do not have the energy to properly continue the series and the engagement was not at the minimal threshold to keep it about for moving forward. With that, here is the first (and last) creator showcase from December 2017. Continue reading “The First (and Last) Creator Showcase – December 2017”

One Lovely Blog & Five Flaming Hotties

What Will My Grandma Think?

No seriously, she reads these. What will she think with a title like that? I’ve been nominated once again for a blog award. Thanks to Nesha for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. In addition, Nesha also tagged me in the Five Flaming Hotties game. Raistlin0903 also tagged me in the Five Flaming Hotties game awhile back but I didn’t actually get around to making a post (though I did give him a rushed list on his blog). I’ll be tackling the One Lovely Blog Award first and then the Hotties. Continue reading “One Lovely Blog & Five Flaming Hotties”

Just Something About LynLyn Nominated Me For The Unique Blogger Award

Wow, Haven’t Done a Blogger Chain in a LONG Time!

This time I’ve been nominated for The Unique Blogger Award by Lyn over at Just Something About LynLyn. She’s super amazing and you should definitely check out both her site and post for this chain as well! Lyn covers all sorts of stuff from Korean drama, anime, manga, and books. Thanks again for the nomination! 🙂

The Rules:

#1 – Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.

#2 – Answer the questions.

#3 – In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.

#4 – Ask them 3 questions

Lyn’s Questions

1. If you could create a national holiday, what would it be and why?

This is a tricky question. I really have no idea. Maybe something to do with honoring exemplary media such as films, TV, books, etc… That would be cool. No clue what to call that though.

2. Do you listen to Kpop? Who is your favorite artist and why?

I listen to a wide variety of music, which does include Kpop. Unfortunately, I don’t really have a favorite artist because it isn’t something that I listen to a lot and don’t really know any artists. Sorry my answer is so boring haha.

3. What’s your current song obsession?

Ah, this one is easier! Lately, I have been finding this song to be quite enjoyable:

I heard this song through my “Discover Weekly” playlist. It always has such interesting music but this is the one I’ve enjoyed most recently. ‘The Willow Maid’ tells a story and has that Celtic sound that I tend to enjoy. A bit on the longer side but if you like this sort of thing that isn’t a bad thing.

My Nominees:

I never really know who’s been nominated for these things or not so sorry for any repeats if there are any.

I know it’s not a lot but the other people who came to mind I know for sure were nominated recently.

My Questions:

  1. What’s your favorite board game and why?
  2. Which horror anime is your go-to pick for Halloween?
  3. What trope do you think is most overused in anime?

Thanks again Lyn for the nomination and I hope everybody has fun with this 🙂

Enjoy This Joke – AKA The Backup Plan

I Wasn’t Feeling Well Yesterday

Originally today’s post was supposed to be about Usagi Drop, Barakamon, and Sweetness & Lightning, but I just couldn’t focus much on writing. I want to do justice to this article so it’s pushed back until Friday. I would have had it done in advance last week, but the Holiday weekend threw my scheduling off a bit and life happened. So instead, enjoy this story that is also a joke. Little update at the end too.

Spam Saga – Ch.2 A Christmas Story: Lee & Larry Learn the TRUE Meaning of Christmas and How to Make Millions with JUST a Click of a Button!

It’s a Christmas Special… in August?

Forward:  Click here to read chapter one. This series is based on a conversation I had regarding spam comments. Rather than delete them like a sane person, I read them and turn them into weird(er) stories. Today’s chapter is inspired by these bizarre “Lee and Larry” comments I receive. They are always about God and the proper way to worship. The views and ideas expressed in these are not necessarily my own.

Previously in Spam Saga…

I sent my bank account information to a Saudi-Arabian Prince so I could claim my fortune. While I waited for the paperwork to process, he began to tell me the 100% true story about a God-fearing American family that was completely and utterly average in every way. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the paperwork so I’ve since had to send him my SSID. While we wait for that mess to get sorted out, he offered up a story about the family we had heard little about in the previous chapter.

I gladly accepted his generous offer.

Spam Saga – Ch.1 The Adventures Begin: Inspired by a Conversation I had with Apprentice Mages Lounge; a Totally “Legit” Story of UNBELIEVABLE Proportions!!!

Our Story Begins Like Any Other…

Forward:  Derek (Apprentice Mages Lounge) and I were talking on Twitter awhile back about spam comments when I had the idea to share some of the weirder/funnier ones as tweets. Well forget that idea! Writing a story from them seems way better. Everything written is based off of spam comments. In some cases, I’ll even directly quote them. The views expressed in this are not necessarily my own, and again, it’s based off of real spam comments that I receive. Not sure how long this will last but I’ll do this as long as I keep getting spam and have ideas for it.
