So It's Been One of *those* days

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 12, 2015, 5:39 PM


Apparently Mercury popped out of retrograde yesterday morning, which could explain some of the issues that I have been having with my work laptop as well as my personal laptop of late.

This morning I ran a full system scan of my personal laptop and found out that I had some rather nasty drive issues. Taking care of that took me a good chunk of an hour or so.

Opening my work laptop this morning revealed that it had suffered from the blue screen of death when I put it to sleep last night, and that it had been on in this manner *all* night. Managed to get it started, but the system scanner software I use kept crashing when I tried to start it.

Finally got both work laptop and personal laptop back in proper working shape after dinner tonight, so that's all good.

And some really good things happened today too.

*my paycheck arrived earlier than I had anticipated, so I have money in my accounts. Woohoo
*My friend :iconlove-in-belle: extended my premium membership. Yay!! Thank you homegirl.
*I made blueberry pancakes for dinner, and we had those with new maple syrup.
*AJ and I discovered the playful side of my cat, and that she has a favorite toy - a catnip banana. There is a video of my kitty being playful on my Facebook page.

Soooo...


What if Rose Quartz was a member of royalty back on the Gem home world? What if Garnet was one of her bodyguards, and Pearl was a lady in waiting? What if they heard of the gems doing something horrible to the Earth, and instead of going along with the rest of their people, they transported to Earth, destroyed the homeworld warp, and decided to live there?

What if, out of all of the gem "parasites" created in the Kindergarten, Amethyst was the only one who was sympathetic to the plight of Rose, Garnet, and Amethyst?

Well, that was unexpected...

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 3, 2015, 12:38 PM
So, two big things happened this weekend that affected a couple of my fandoms.

The first was the unexpected passing of Monty Oum, who, as many know, is the creative mind behind 'RWBY'. Late last week I read that he was sick, and that a crowdfunding event had been started. Yesterday I saw a post on Crunchyroll's Facebook page regarding Monty passing away late Sunday. Monty, you will be missed. Also, I have no idea what this means for the third season of RWBY, or for Red Vs. Blue, or any of the other series and projects he was working on.

Second involved Ricardo Medina JR, who played Cole, the red ranger, on 'Power Rangers Wildforce' and how he stabbed and killed someone with a sword. I've seen this blow up all over the facebook feeds for Jason David Frank, Austin St. John, and Steve Cardenas, all of whom played the red ranger at one point or another. Ho-Lee-crapcakes.


On a different note, this is for my friends and watchers who are fans of Steven Universe. Specifically, how the creators have added in little bits of video game trivia to the various episodes.

For example -

*In 'Alone Together', the kid who is DJing the rave is using an original GameBoy, a GameBoy color, and an original Gameboy Advance to mix his tunes. Funny thing - I own the exact same Gameboy Advance, which is a color called Fuchsia Ice.

*In several episodes we see either a Gamecube or a Nintendo 64 system in Steven's bedroom.

*In 'Future Sight', and previously in 'Steven the Swordsman' we have seen Steven's figurine collection. One figure resembles Sonic the Hedgehog. Another looks like Stoneman from the 'Megaman' series. A third figure looks like Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII

*In 'Steven the Swordsman', we see the Cloud Strife figure skewered in a manner similar to... well, is it really a spoiler if I mention the end of disc 1 of FFVII? C'mon people, the game came out almost 18 years ago. Who doesn't know what happens at the end of disc 1?

There are probably a *TON* more little Easter eggs that I haven't mentioned or remember seeing. I'm fairly certain there is something inside the giant bird in the 'Giant Woman' episode. If you have seen any that I may have missed, let me know because I would *love* to have a reason to rewatch some of the earlier episodes.

Peace out.

It's about "Thieving Duelist". Specifically a certain part in there. I want there to be a confrontation between Yugi and Sapphire during his whole coma period in a dream. Not sure how to execute the Duel, though.

*ponders and strokes imaginary beard while cranking the deconstructed remix of Ke$ha's 'Blow'*

There needs to be fog. Lots of fog. Maybe some dramatic lighting and silhouettes. And a lot of echo.

Yugi could be illuminated in a spotlight across a vast expanse of darkness, and Sapphire could be approaching through the fog, her footsteps echoing throughout the vastness of whatever chamber they are in (possibly somewhere in Yugi's mind).

She stops when she spots him, and calls out to him, her voice booming and echoing.

Not sure if you're having her speak to young Yugi or Yami Yugi, but this may affect how you proceed with beginning the battle.

For young Yugi, Sapphy could coax him into dueling, as their friends may be in trouble and they really need Yugi back on his feet and lending a hand.

From there have lights flare on around the duo, revealing a dueling arena with nightmarish adornments in shades of deep / blood red.

Hopefully that will help and not be too far from what you're thinking.
