So… today was meant to be the day of coursework…. However, this ended up taking a rather severe blow…. I was meant to do a bit of DT, do a lot of Media…. and if I was up to it, which I’m not, some Art…. Problems with all 3…. Dt, I don’t have my 3 designs, so I can’t compare them to the specs out of memory…. Media, I have NO idea which ‘The Orphanage’ Trailer I needed to work on…. So if I go with the wrong one… it could be bad… maybe…. Then Art… well… I have a bunch of stuff to do… like…. well, I need to take a load of pictures which I will do soon…. at least whilst the light is still good and natural, I think I also need to do some tonal studies and some artist research. I’m not sure if I need to do both of the last two…. but I think it was going to be one…. at the very least…. The small bits of Art are meant in for Tuesday… then I need to get more done for Thursday….

Well, whilst on the theme of art…. LOOKIE!!!!

So.... What do ya think?

So.... What do ya think?

So for Art I had to do some work on other Cultures… what better thing to do other than Ulquiorra? I did it all in black pen… a black pen that was breaking every few seconds….. my current main idea… is somewhat comic book based… and I hope it comes out as well as I can imagine it…. the main problem I have come to at the moment is:

A: Filling space in the bottom panel

B: Doing a tonal panel in anime style WITHIN the time limit…

Currently… I really need to get some pictures… of me TT.TT Which no one likes… specifically… pictures of me… in the wind…. hair blowing in the wind…. just ONE part…. I dunno how I am gonna do that…. I’ll get my sister to do it… or something….¬† I need to finish this Blog quickly before the sun sets….

What else? Media…. This is beginning to suck…. We have nearly finished our thing… when I say that… I mean, we I have done our poster:

The poster would be here had I actually saved it in a JPEG or any other picture format….

I, ended up making the most of it and supervising the rest…. The problem is, these sheets we are given, make it sound like the work we did was all even… whilst Ellie hasn’t done a thing… shown in a little comic I made… but I can’t scan it in because my mum has been on the computer ALL WEEK!!!! I could take a photo… however, that wouldn’t work…. because you can’t see any of the text….

DT! What fun! At the beginning of the week my product was doing awesome back flips of justice and sex…. I had some awesome rings… I had painted my rings…. I had then stuck one half of the rings down…. THEN! SOME DOUCHE decided to steal one… meaning Miss Thompson made another, it isn’t the same size as the others… OR the same shade of blue… this is more of a… purple… and there is also glue EVERYWHERE now…. Still behind on my coursework… actually… I’m not THAT far behind… I just need to do… like 2 sheets, REDO my entire Plan… or at least finish it… then I have like 5.3 – 6.3 to do… which really require me to finish my actual project… however, at this rate… I wont be taking it home ’till after The Easter Holidays… so…. I am gonna have to bring in a bunch of DVDs (Bleach FMA….) and stuff to fill the spaces… it is gonna have to be a day that I don’t have many books… Wednesday…. that day… I only have my DT folder… every other day I have either Art or French to crush things….

The sun is quickly diminishing…. uh… the overall week has been okay… Tuesday had the dreaded Maths Mock… My revision had literally been on the day… but I was in a sleepy state when I did it…. I thought it went balls up…. it did… I only got 98 marks… for an A you need 98…. so…. I actually NEED to revise… which means, the weekend after Prom… I am going to have to revise… and ONLY revise… maybe play some maple in the afternoon/evening if I am bored, to GPQ or if there is 2x exp…. or if my brother is at work so I can play some Disgaea 2…. Then there is all that time staring into the distance… maybe I will have Bleach Season 2 by then (I would hope so) so I can watch that whilst revising… and season 1….

Speaking of Bleach! Bleach Chapter 351 was a big let down… there was no plot development… it showed some awesome Ichigo bits… and gave me a theory which I will post in a second with a giant POSSIBLE SPOILER heading…. I had been looking forward to Bleach Chapter 351 ALL week… However, Bleach Episode 107…. was quite cool. Ichinose turned out to be alive… but not anymore as he went spiralling¬† off into the distance spuming blood everywhere, Karyia revealed his bount (Which is FUGLY) and yet… with two episodes left to the series… Ichigo and Karyira STILL haven’t started to properly fight… like the sort of fight that you get to see… there was a small bit that got spoken over by Toushiro or someone…. so… as if they were watching, but they weren’t….


I think the problem is that we know what is now going to happen… Ulquiorra is gonna get completely destroyed… Ichigo has no human conscious at the moment… Orihime is going to get scared and worried… then Ichigo’s mask will break… Orihime will freak out because Ichigo is now very scary… Ichigo may have hurt Uryruu or someone during the battle… or Ichigo got too crazy so people are going to be fighting him instead… he will end up badly hurting Orihime or Rukia… his mask will break… he will fall to the floor… all deep and emotional and stuff…. (That is my prediction)

Or! Orihime is going to protect Ulquiorra from Ichigo’s Cero…. then the above is gonna happen and stuff….


I have recently played a bit more Tales of Symphonia… 2 player with my sister… who sucks at the game… never playing with her again…. Today I played a bit more Final Fantasy IX and I must be nearing the end…. I think I’m on disc 3 of 4…. and normally the 4th disc is the final Dungeon and all the things you can do to get final weapons and stuff….

Not sure what else to say… I’m going to go take some pictures (I have no idea what of) whilst the sun is out, then I’m going to try and get my Media done… I need to get that done BEFORE 7:30… the 2x exp starts at 8:00 (I think) and I need to get there early to get a map… plus I need to bathe… so I’ll be in a towel most of the 2x exp….

Let me leave you with this god among men…

Uh, here is the media comic I was talking about….

Left to Right - Ellie, Me (Chris) and Cheyenne

Left to Right - Ellie, Me (Chris) and Cheyenne


Is this my first long blog in like what? 2 weeks? oopsies…. Well I could write a long list of lame arse excuses…. So I will:

  • I had exams. Yes, I had two exams, but that is hardly an excuse mostly because I did no revision for them.
  • Maplestory. Yeah, Maplestory released something new…. that rocks so I am leveling a lot… which only happens like… once in every 4 years… the last time this happened… was when I first joined the game…..
  • I was too lazy. Whenever I did get round to just internet browsing, I would think about writing a new blog post, but I would always think that there would be too much to write… Ironically, the more I put it off, the more I have to write about. Yet I can still miss out about all of it and just cram it all down.

I shall start with, my exams. Yes, I had two exams (as about… two thirds of my readers know (the other third being Kevin or Sean)), these were science exams. Overall I could give it some thumbs up, but I still have that slight bit of doubt in my head that comes from overall doing 1 hour of revision for the two of them. There isn’t really more to say about them….

Where next? I’m not ACTUALLY sure…. Spluh, gaming…. Okay, Maplestory… supermega woo and blah blah blah. Moving on, Disgaea 2…. is still super awesome and I still slightly wet myself at the opening sequence… It will be another week until I can get another go on it…. But… I can wait…. Maybe I should just melt down the CD and inject it straight into my veins…. I hope we get Disgaea on DS…. Like Japan have… Mostly because my Disgaea disc isn’t read anymore…. and I was near the end… I just didn’t realise how sexy making towers is…. Towers of about…. 10 people…. with a french frog on top…. I swear for the last week, I’ve had some kind of thought on my head to put a video on…. but I’ve completely forgotten…. in fact, I might not have…. Maybe it is because I am tired.

Speaking of tired, tomorrow my Grandparents are going to come to my house and be annoying…. Just by being old people, that snore, and make odd noises…. and mean I can hear the TV through the entire house….. But that is what laptops are for. Also, come Sunday, I’m going to stay up all night just to see what effect it has on my school work. Also to see if anyone notices these so called “bags under the eyes” which I can only assume come from not sleeping for 24 hours or more….

During this period… I will probably level at least once on Maplestory (and by then catch up with Rob of Awesome) I will hopefully play a lot of FF IX and get a lot of pictures drawn. Heck, I might even get out that old dusty thing called “Latest idea that wont last” but it would be better if I could get the Ben-checked version of it back…. I need to start coming up with ideas for chapters… and ways of making it longer…. at least 200 pages, maybe even 300. The worst thing is, I plan on making it a Trilogy due to the way the 1st will end and then also the way the 2nd will end. Even then, I think the 3rd is going to end on a bad note…. but the third I only have the ending planned out in my head. The one I am currently doing, I’ve gotten a lot more characters planned out, I think I’ve gotten…. 2 more chapters planned, a twist in the plot and the ending…. oh… and another chapter…. so that gives an extra 5 chapters to my story… making it 7…. if anything… I need to get it to 10… at the very very least… I think the 2nd would be longer because that will split into lots of smaller stories as the characters trek through this area. I mean currently, it is really just following one person…. the main Character…. OH! 8th chapter thought of… I need to write these down or something….. I’m now really trying hard to think of some more chapters…. Oh, duh…. How could I forget about that chapter, 9th… Hmmm I think I have a 10th…. but that could merge into the 9th…. I might have to talk it over with Ben, probably in Physics…

Onward to school. Currently, Drama is getting better, my ideas are FINALLY being listened to, it would also seem that left to our own devices, everyone sucks… and the second Miss Archer comes in it goes from floating heads talking to a full FMV. My butt hurts by the way….

Art, I thought I knew what I was doing, but that changed when this lesson I really did sweet eff aye all lesson agian… French is as worrying as ever. Maths is as I-want-to-stab-Nathan-in-the-dumb-face as always. Media is a bit iffy… DT, is somewhat better…. I’ve just realised how far behind I am…. as well as the lack of time I have… I need to mark my wood up a bit more… but currently… I need a straight edge to draw from… A daytum edge if you will, haw hee haw hee haw….. Science, I got completely lost in Chemistry (first) for I have no idea what we are meant to be researching. I’ve got the rough gist of the Dynamic Equilibrium…. or at least the Equilibrium bit, not sure what makes one type so Dynamic… I get that on either side there shouldn’t be anything added or taken away… as with EVERY chemical reaction… or everything in general when turning one thing to another… well in an ideal world where nothing is lost via boiling or is stuck to the items used to transfer. It might help if Andy didn’t fall behind a lot of the time due to the fact that he has to make his work bloody Calligraphy! I wouldn’t dare like to think how he is going to cope with Uni life when it is writing very quick sprawled notes and then copy to neat later… but then, I hope I still care as little as I do know about Andy in the future….. He seems to have gotten a big bowl of hate recently as well….

The new French assistant lady… is REALLY MEAN! She is sooo rude… I didn’t understand something very well, so I struggled and she then went “NO, Listen to my question (French here) now (French here).” After more struggling she went, “(French here) is what is YOUR name, so (more french here) is….” She was soo mean and had to pick me first so I had no idea what she was asking…

Table-tennis is over!!!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!! Although, I was getting a little bit bored… although, I would hate to think what I am going to have to do now…. it is still too cold to do anything outside….

In other news, I recently discovered that I could move music from my MP3 ONTO my computer… meaning, I know have lots more music from my brother’s computer on mine… AT LAST. So I have a lot of Rage Against the Machine (blocked on the school computers (LOL)), R.E.M (not R.A.M (Relative Atomic Mass (Or Random Access Memory)), Arcade Fire and Air Traffic, oh and some more Franz Ferdinand. I just need to put some of the Queens of the Stone Age stuff I don’t have, some of the Feeder, the one Album of Muse I never got round to putting on my computer… I think the odd song hither and dither…. that is all I can really think of.

Well, with my butt having NO feeling AT ALL I shall cut this short…. see you some other time… maybe tomorrow… maybe Saturday… Most likely Sunday….

And the superstars sucked into the supermassive (Oooh, You set my soul alight)

So yeah, I’ve decided to do some sort of opening on a song thing…. At random choosing!!!!!!!!!!! OR to be more precise… whatever I’m listening to that was catchy or if it is slightly relevant… in which I think I might change the lyrics slightly (like with that last one)… Wait… I think I shall have a barth before it is too late…. Then I can rant and rave about Drama, school, internet…. and such like things….

Well, I’m back and in a VERY cold towel….. But pleh….

Where to start? The thing that has got me boiled up the most…. This being none other than Drama…. Grrr I am annoyed by drama…. I mean, I have to do a devised piece… I have a crap group…. The group being Lydia, Sarah Harris and Donna… The last two constantly go off into girly chats about hair, or clothes or SOMETHING like that…. Then Lydia, because she goes to some FANCY work shops, thinks she knows everything and is just leading the group… I haven’t really been able to protest about ANYTHING… I mean, I’ve got one idea through… doubt it is really going to do much but…. yeah… What is worse is that she is set with the idea that one of the families in it are SUPER posh…. and when I say super posh… I mean like friends with the queen posh… I mean, they only have enough money to send ONE of their children to boarding school… or at least… that is how I have adapted it…. They are hardly posh… the parents just have a slightly…. upper middle class or maybe just middle class way about them…. Lydia is also set on making the boy snort when laughing… again, he is a normal teenage boy, well about seventeen BUT STILL, I mean, he isn’t going to be THAT FREAKING POMPOUS! I’m going to have to try and BEAT that into someone…. Not to mention Miss Archer didn’t even bother to talk to our group…. Once…. Currently I play, The Father of the main Character, The brother of the main character and then just like, one of the school kids… I was also going to have to play the mother of a friend of the main character… but Lydia decided to take it from me…. Currently… We’ve only gotten characters done… meaning we are NOT going to be prepared in the slightest… Mostly cause Lydia spent sooo much time talking about how the people are going to walk…. and there isn’t going to be THAT much walking I would assume… mostly Injecting… but… that is life…

Next on the punch in the face list… DT… in the lesson I had today… I started off finding out that the piece I had done had been what looking like CHEWED on slightly and then had some dry glue where there wasn’t…. Clio’s had some paint on…. And with mine… it wont push down… I did what the teacher said, I got a G-Clamp, some glue and some scrap bits of wood…. I then put some glue on the area and pressed it down, after the lesson was over…. (double) The glue had dried… I come back this lesson to find out that it had moved back…. Then whilst I was marking my BIG sheet of wood that I am not looking forward to cutting, I think I’ll get Ned to do it, People just saw my wood as part of the floor…. it is now mostly grey in a footprint pattern…. I also think I might’ve got some of the measurements wrong due to the CRAPPY tape measure I keep getting…. Grrrr….

Hmm, where next? I’m not really sure what my Rant on the internet was….. OH! That is right this is where I begin to moan about the crapness of Alfie…. and the falseness of every comment I’ve given him…. Clocks was funny… the drums sucked…. Then we have “A New Challenger Appeared” in the whole SSB Blacked-out Silhouette styley…. This is WORSE than Clocks… the imposter should be stabbed in the kidney with a rusty Geranium…. Then! There is this funny shit by my brother featuring Ralph Churcher (Upper Sixth (good at maths)) where my brother got a lot of clips from Ralph miming to Chop Suey….. Have a look…… So.. that is all that really comes to mind about the world of the internet….

THIS BIT WILL ROCK!!!! This is a First…. “Why?” you ask? “I thought you’ve done everything awesome EVER!” I hear you say…. Oh, ha ha ha…. so silly…. This is a first due to it being a picture… not any ordinary picture… one with THREE count them THREE tones…. Not to mention it is an Action scene instead of the normal Character standing there possibly posing by lifting an arm… This may appear in that thing Ben… But I’m not sure… Just change about the colours and costumes and stuff…. But…. I do know if it will appear or not… you just wont find out till I get it finished…. Well here it is to save space and stuff…. The problem is that feet are still brown stumps from no matter WHAT angle you look at them… I’ll have to get into that and give everyone… Boots… or something… But yeah… I even used a BLUR effect to make it look more WOAH! and shit….

OH! Another thing that was super special slightly famous people thing happened…. Steven Napierski… of Dueling Analogs,
Is having a Baby… I decided to send him a crazy fan letter… this is how it went… with reply…. :

Good luck with the baby!!!! I hope it doesn’t take up TOO much time… Heck, with bedtime stories you could write your own and have colourful pictures with unicorns with snakes for feet which viewed by anyone else would look like you had an acid trip, but only you and your baby would understand the meaning of these colourful pictures and you wouldn’t want to tell ANYONE…. it would be like a secret bond…. I’ve gone off track…. But yeah, Congratulations and Good Luck!

So yeah… more of the awesome sexness and the shits….

Well, that is all that really comes to my mind at this moment in the space time continuim… I’m sure as I try to sleep I will
remember some crap and then kick myself until there is no more…. But, that is for the gods of Asgard to deside….

Well… I fell behind on my posting, possibly because I’ve gotten like 14 views in like the past 3 days and not a single view. However, I shall try and remember some stuff.
First off, today was Remembrance Day. We got our 2 minutes of silence in PE after a good ol’ game of B-Ball in which I had NO idea what I was doing… The rest of the day was pretty sub par…. Joints in Biology and learning that my clicking all my bones *does just that* is two things:
1) Perfectly good
2) Very bad
RS meant that we got our “punishment” which was… wait for it, it is worse than torture… GROUP WORK! We even got to choose our groups… How DARE she? In our groups, we got to make some form of poster like thing which talked about war… The one that I mostly did and Nick helped with (Albert was just the craftsman) had “PEACE” on the left in green with “GOOD” in blue under it and on the other side we had “WAR” in yellow and “BAD” in orange. Between the “PEACE” and “GOOD” we had an orange square saying “is” and same for the opposite…. I then made some kind of square quickly, and scribbled something about how war can be caused by many things as can peace, then decorated it then slammed it down. Along the bottom on another piece of orange was, “We cannot have PEACE without there being WAR” and then that was about all of it…. I got most of this done…. John Ridd just sat there.

Monday… not much happened as far as I can remember, stuff happened in DT and then there is still TOO much work to do for like Thursday AND Wednesday… got like one bit of art done….

SUNDAY! Instead of doing any work, I ended up colouring in another picture of mine. Which you can find on the last link that I posted it in the other one. Not only that I have FINALLY played Gears of War 2! It was FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! My brother and I started out on Horde mode and then we got to like wave 7 (which was hard with only two of us…). I think it would be MUCH easier if we had like 3 people…. so if one end (we found a bit with a door on one side and an opening on the other) got too crowded then the spare could go and help…. It works out in my head…. We then played a bit of story and just met up with some CRAZY cow-dude. He is very Texan…. and calls his big Vechile “Betty” Or something… then it was 10:30pm…. so we stopped…

So yeah, really hungry right now… and after dinner (which is soon) I will get some art done (a bit more) then try and get some DT…. THEN if I am lucky, I will be able to get my Drama (well some of it) done…. Wednesday will be me, trying to get all my Drama and final bit of Art (depending on how much I got done). I might do it….


Today being Sunday and the last day of Half-Term, I decided to make sure I didn’t do too much gaming… such as Maplestory and Tales of Symphonia. This was because I was meant to get some homework done. Unfortunately, I got side tracked so now I have a lot art to do…. Homework is REALLY far down on my list of stuff to do:

1) Gaming

2) Checking for updates on my RSS feeds and the like

3) Socialising

4) Homework

So you can see the problem I am in with this whole homework thing. However, I MIGHT be able to get one drawing done this afternoon…. *looks out the window* okay, later this evening…. I might also be able to finish another one by guessing how the tones work by getting one quick glance at what I’m drawing then running up the stairs and procrast- draw it.

Ben is probably thinking I stole his idea with this but to him I say, “Boo Hoo! I want to be able to say Gentiles!”. For those of you that don’t know (so no one) I had by previous blog on Gamespot where you couldn’t really say things like gentiles or even class! So I went with this…. the RSS feed also works….

Across the week I have: Gotten my Crossbowman to level 70 (at last!) on Maplestory. It only took my under four years, when some can do it in like one month maybe two…. I’ve watched CRAP loads of anime. Mostly consisting of Bleach English Dubs and now i’m on a weekly thing with that, One Piece Funimation English Dub…. I need to wait for the next bunch come out (if ever), Devil May Cry : The animated Series. This kinda ROCKS! It has a cool start up tune which I downloaded…. and it is cool because it has Dante in it being cool and funny… he likes Strawberry Sundays…. I have SEARCHED and SEARCHED for English dubs of Elemental Gelade but I can’t find ANY i just come to websites which say they have it then it turns out they are Veoh Videos and those have all been removed…. grrrr….. Oh i’ve also been listening to a lot of Lemon Demon…. I still need that new album…. I also started writing a bit more of Chapter Two….

Oh, Ben, I’m still waiting for that Chapter one work…. HINT HINT…. and that picture….
