The Life and Times vol. 8: No Clever Title

Hello. No clever titles this time, no pointless banter before I begin. For once, I'd be Ryan, and just Ryan. No fifthStitch jovial undertones, just me speaking my heart out.

Because after a long struggle of trying to hold everything in, I've got a lot to speak out.

Imagination's Creations: Little Sister Syringe Day 1

Hello avid readers of my blog (if you exist)! Welcome to a new blog series I'd like to call Imagination's Creations, where I indulge one of my many many hobbies: model building. Before I proceed though, let me just say, I'm not really a professional or whatever when it comes to building models and other craftsy artsy things; in fact, prior to what I'm about to show you, it's been a couple of years since I last built something out of scratch (as opposed to, say, building a model kit). However, and not that I'm bragging, but friends tell me that I might have some aptitude in prop building, and it's been something I've been wanting to get into anyway, so might as well run with it!

Nothing ventured nothing gained right (is it obvious that this aphorism is slowly becoming one of my favorites)?

The Life and Times vol. 7: End of an era

That's right folks, two Life and Times in the span of a month! Or maybe a week, I can't really remember (of course, I could have just looked at the timestamps but nooo... Too lazy...). Anyways, why the sudden urge to present you guys with another awesome edition of The Life and Times?

Simple. The end of an era has arrived. The End of Eternity has begun.

Reflections: Good Friday

[The following post, I know, might be quite controversial for some. I don't mean to spark any debates, leave those to apologists, but I still felt compelled to share this message with you here. If you don't agree, then I ask for your respect, but if you do, then all I simply ask for is your time to read. Thank you.]

Something to write about: Google Chrome as music player?

Okay, so maybe I'm the only one who hasn't really noticed yet, but darn is the Google Chrome Webstore filled with awesomeness. Okay okay, I'm probably exaggerating, and the webstore is probably more like a blatant rip-off of Apple's Appstore, but still, it's pretty nifty to be able to play music on your browser while playing some mini games and researching the chords to the most recent Mandy Moore hit I See The Light (uhh, yeah, I think I may have enjoyed Tangle a little too much, hehe).

Like I won't be able to do this with my browser anyway. But meh.

The Life and Times vol. 5

Hey! It's volume 5!

So what do I have to say? Well, nothing much, just felt like updating this blog. I've been reading my older blog posts though, particularly my very first. It felt nostalgic of course, but the beauty in reading blogs like this is seeing how much I've changed over the years (two years? maybe less, but hey, its still more than one so it deserves to be plural) (and yes, I still put parenthetical side comments, guess some things don't change). Call me sick, but I really get a kick at temporal time travel; putting myself in my shoes back when I first wrote something.

Something to Write About: Ball-jointed what now?

I was asking around what accessories came with the S.H.Figuarts Emperor Kiva, and Murakami Night was gracious enough to link me to this site. It was in Japanese, so given the option to translate, translate I did. Now, I dunno if this was meant to be like this or if the translator failed, but it did make me do a double take.

Be sure to click the image to zoom in. You could say this is an if you see it, you'd shit bricks, but instead of shitting you'd be laughing like crazy and instead of bricks... I dunno, carbon dioxide maybe? What kind of gas do you expel anyway when you laugh? And no, not methane, I meant from the front end.


For the uninitiated, yes, collecting figures like these is a hobby of mine. I make comics out of them, in case you don't know yet, and I'm planning to include this particular figure right here. I know you can't see the figure much, but if you'd Google S.H.Figuarts Emperor Kiva, you'd see how golden majestic this dude is (and no, no image, go and Google, it builds character).

Anyway, that's all for that. Hope that got some laughs outta you. Sure got some outta me, haha.
