Twilight Sparkle = Harry Potter?

Nov. 11th, 2012 | 04:01 pm

First off, let me say that I don't really follow any discussions on forums. So if this is already been discussed and debated I apologize. This is just my reaction to it.The recent episode of "my Little pony: friendship is magic" Dropped some large hints that Twilight Sparkle has some big destiny ahead of her that we have not been informed of yet.
I have suspected this ever since the flashback in "Cutie Mark Chronicles" where she went Avatar-state in trying to do some magic. But today, I was re-watching the Canterlot wedding episode. Something in it struck me that had not occurred to me before.
Why does a unicorn have a princess for her babysitter? Did Cadence need extra money for pizza?
Bearing that in mind, look at the dialogue between cadence and young twilight. 

Young Twilight Sparkle: I am so lucky to have you as my foalsitter!
Young Cadance: I'm the one who's lucky, Twilight.
Young Twilight Sparkle: [scoffs] You're a princess. I'm just a regular old unicorn.
Young Cadance: You are anything but a regular old unicorn.


You see?! THEY KNEW!! Possibly from her birth, they've known that twilight was something special. They have been watching out for her. And they are guiding her towards some big destiny.

Why Facebook?

Apr. 18th, 2012 | 03:51 pm
location: Work
music: Whatever's playing on the loudspeakers

Anyone who follows this journal might ask why I haven't updated it in years. The simple answer is I started a Facebook account and don't have the dedication to maintain more than one social networking site. But why choose Facebook over Livejournal?

Well, it's true to say that my normal mode of short entries and links fits Facebook better than LJ. It's true that more people I know have FB accounts. But the real reason is the names. Honestly, I just have too hard a time remembering everyone's Livejournal aliases. I can usually keep track of who's account I'm looking at, but if they mention in their journal that they met with so-and-so yesterday, I have to wrack my brain: "Do I know so-and-so?"

So, my apologies to those who use LJ over FB. I'll try to stop in and read what's going on with you as I remember to.

Hey, remember me?

Well if you don't I understand it's been... kind of a while since I was on here. Heck I haven't even read other people's journal posts in months so if you're waiting for my reply to a life-altering epiphany you posted... oops?

Anyway, most of you know I was in a production of Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale." It was awesome! I haven't had that kind of fun in a long time. Not to say it all went swimingly. Most notably was the Sunday matinee performance where I bent down to pick up a baby and my pants split wide open! Luckly I was wearing a long coat in that scene so the audience couldn't tell and that was the last scene before intermission so a quick sewing job and a lot of duck tape later and I was set to go!

Saturday night was the last night and also the cast party. Only thing I'm going to mention about that was the Shakespeare Mad-libs. The crew had gone around that day collecting nouns, verbs and adjectives. Then those of us who had long monologues in the play were given our speeches to do one more time... only now slightly altered.

I'd like to say that the free time of not being in a show will make me better about keeping up to date on this site, but I doubt it. ^_^;;

So, until I log in again or (more likely) I see you in person...

Just one of those dumb internet things I came across.  It's hilarious in a weird way.
 Small warning:  it does have a loud music track that will draw attention if you're surfing on company time. ^_~

 Narwhals!!

Amusing stuff...

And... here's one reason I don't watch the show:
 

That's all for now.  Oh, my birthday's coming up this weekend.  Probably should do something about that. Hmmm....

 This is just a random thing I came across. A poem written by stand-up comic Demetri Martin. 

Dammit I’m mad.
Evil is a deed as I live.
God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
In my halo of a mired rum tin.
I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
Be still if I fill its ebb.
Ew, a spider… eh?
We sleep. Oh no!
Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
Both, one… my names are in it.
Murder? I’m a fool.
A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash.
A Goddam level I lived at.
On mail let it in. I’m it.
Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
“Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
Evil is a deed as I live.
Dammit I’m mad.


Do you see the brilliance of it? 
Hint: Try reading it backwards!

I ask for your help in something you could care less about.

Jan. 24th, 2009 | 08:30 pm

Please bare with me, silly as it seems on the surface I do think this is important.

I am a fan of the Nickelodeon television series Avatar:The Last Airbender. Probably few of you are. For those who have never heard of it, it is a fantasy story telling of a world at war and a young hero, the latest in a series of incarnated "Avatars" tasked to keep the world in balance. For a so-called "kids" show, it had a surprisingly rich depth of characterization and good storytelling. Not to mention fantastic detail in the art.

Below are a few examples all taken from here:


A little less than a year ago it was announced that there would be a live-action movie version of this series directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Fan reaction was not completely positive.

I, personally, had already abandoned hope of it being any good. Yet even I was aghast when, a few weeks ago, the casting of the main characters was announced.

Every single one of main characters is cast as a caucasian!

Now tell me, looking at the pictures above, if you think that is appropriate for this story.

At first, I simply rolled my eyes and dismissed it as Hollywood idiocy. But a recent blog post by Derek Kirk Kim opened my eyes to exactly how wrong this was.

imagine if someone had made a “fantasy” movie in which the entire world was built around African culture. Everyone is wearing ancient African clothes, African hats, eating traditional African food, writing in an African language, living in African homes, all encompassed in an African landscape...
...but everyone is white.
How offensive, insulting, and disrespectful would that be toward Africans and African Americans?


There's is a pervasive tendency for Asian American's to be marginalized. Not being seen as "on the front lines" of the race problems in this country, they tend to be forgotten. Why do we allow this?

So I'm asking if you could be bothered to step up and say "no" to this. It may or may not be too late to change things in this film, but maybe we can prevent any further "whitewashing."

See how you can help here.

Divine Glossophobia

Jan. 22nd, 2009 | 12:09 pm

I know God's supposed to be omnipotent, but do you really think that means he can do anything? I mean, George Carlin used to talk about kids at his Sunday School class asking the priest all the trick questions; "Hey, if God is all-powerful does that mean he can make a rock so big that he, himself, can't lift it? Hey! We got 'im now! Ha!"

But those kind of logical gotchas aside, I think there is evidence of one inability that God possesses. Not saying it's beyond his power, just pointing out that he doesn't seem to do it.

Public Speaking.

Hey, I don't fault him. Lots of people - intelligent and eloquent - just don't do well talking in front of large groups of people. And God seems to be one of them. All the records I know of where God speaks directly (not sending angels or heavenly hosts) it's just to one person: Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed. They then go out and do the talking.

I'm sure it's something that God's worked on. I can just picture him an Moses up at the top of Mt. Sinai.

Moses: Ok, God, I've brought all the Children of Israel here out of Egypt. Now's the time for you to make your will and presence known to all.
God: All of them? Wow. That.... that's a lot of people.
Moses: You alright there, God?
God: Y-yeah. Fine. No problem. Just gotta... just going over a few things. *ahem*
[long pause]
Moses: You know, if this is going to be a while, we could send out for more manna.
God: Just don't rush me OK?!
Moses: Ok! Ok! Just sayin' ...
[another long pause]
Moses: You know what I do? I try to picture the audience naked.
God: I'm omniscient. I see them naked anyway.
Moses: Ah.
[yet another long pause]
Moses: Hey, um... would you like me to do it?
God: Would you?!
Moses: I mean, I don't think it'll quite have the same effect...
God: No, no! You'll be great!
Moses: *sigh* Fine. Can I see your lecture notes?
*THUMP* *THUMP*
Moses: Stone tablets?! You couldn't have used index cards?

The Evil of Red Pandas

Jan. 12th, 2009 | 07:50 pm

I have no idea what this is. It appears to be a Japanese game show where a woman is supposed to share a small room with two Red Pandas. Stranger things I've seen, but still... this is just so... CUTE!!!
