Ooh, I am shaking!
So, I was prepared to write a long essay going off on recent developments, which I will get into in a sec, but then after some time to get myself together I came to the conclusion – I don’t give a tick!
And so, I have decided to write only half the essay (Hahaha).
This is not a normal post so if you don’t want to get involved in moral-killing shenanigans, don’t read. If you are thinking of reading, just know that there is going to be some very colourful language. You’ve been warned!
Alright guys, this is not funny! Who hacked My YouTube Channel! Come on, confess! I just wanna talk! I promise!
This is all a dream, isn’t it!?! I mean where the hell are all these views coming from?! Just…just look up there! I don’t even have 10000 subscribers yet I have those many views?!
Na-uh, I ain’t having this Granny’s Peach Tea!
Seriously though, thank you all who have contributed to the clicks! Thank you to those that have spread the word! Sure I don’t have the subs (not that I demand any, I only do what I like and if others happen to like it all the better! You won’t see me asking people to subscribe or like a video because I think it should be up to them! If they like it they will leave a like, if they like you they will subscribe)
Anyway thank you so very much!
I guess I have to reward the views but getting back to making videos, not that I have been slacking off!
Anyway, good day to you all, I know I am having a great one!
OMFG you all! I have just had the greatest two days ever, especially today. So much so that I am 100% sure I have used up all my luck for the week. Time to stay indoors until Friday….
Oh yeah, a quick explanation, I am actually in Japan right now, that’s right, I’m saying goodbye to 2017 (what a shit year) in style. More on the trip later but something happened today, something so fateful I still can’t believe it.
I shook hands with Idols!!! And not just any Idols but the latest hotness that is =LOVE!
Like….I’m still freaking out right now hours later!
There I was, planning on having a simple day out to the park, visiting Shrines, you know, nothing major. But the moment I reached the park off Ueno Station and saw that infamous statue of Takamori Saigo (a guy walking a dog wearing a fox mask) I knew I was in for a ride.
If you’ve been here you understand my meaning. Among the many things here there is also an open stage. One I’m sure you’ve seen at least once if you’re into Idols. I think TGS actually performed here too.
Anyway I just decided to drop by, thinking it would probably be closed but looking and behold! =LOVE were actually holding a handshake event there! I instantly went into panic mode! Bringing out my Japonnaise I understood that I could just buy a CD at the entrance and get in.
Once inside I had my priorities. I asked if Risa-chan was there. Yes she was. Lane 2. I queued up. Asked about a performance while waiting. Found out it happened before the handshakes. No biggie, sugar is too high to care. Sadly found out no photos are allowed. Screw that shit! I thought =LOVE were different! I see guys posting pics on twitter!
Anyway line is moving. I am during mind yoga practicing what I’m gonna say! “Merry Christmas. It’s a miracle that we have met. I’m so happy. Do your best”
Yeah, don’t think that’s what I said. I did say them to the other two girls with her but when I got to Risa-chan, I was a train wreak! And she was the least Fisher of them. The others squeezed my hands so hard and would not let go when I was being pushed on except her.
Oh yeah, the others were Saito Nagisa and Oba Hana. That Nagisa is so fearless! She looked me straight in the eye, hers burning, hand so strongly holding mine that I instantly understood! That Hana was also almost as intense!
Meanwhile Risa-chan was so delicate I instantly fell in love again! Seriously, I now know exactly what the fuss is all about. The fuss of the Handshakes of course!
I was also shocked, stupidly, at how big the girls actually are. I thought they would be tiny fairies but they are normal size which shooketh me.
And slightly going back in time to yesterday, I paid a visit to Akihabara. You know exactly why I went there! Anyway I got to have lunch at the Cafe, Yukirin and Mayuyu were not on the day’s menu so I had some Saho pasta. Got to request a PV to be played (you know which) but that is not important! What is important is that Yukirin and Sakura were the Santas on display.
The fact that I am alive of course is the sign that I do not mean they were there in person. Their huge banners were up is what I mean, them I’ve Santa costumes.
Seriously, having too much fun do gotta run but… What a day!
Oh yeah, not washing these hands for two days! Fuck Christmas!
The urge to get this was so string that I could not think of waiting for an online order to arrive so I walked into the local shop to get it. This of course means it cost me a small fortune, almost twice that which I could have gotten it on ebay for but sometimes sacrifices have to be made.
I am not a photography person or anything like that but I do not regret getting this! The camera is too advanced and intimidating but I am getting a hand of it. reading all i can about DSLR cameras and photography to get the most out of it later on but for now, I walked out into my backyard and snapped some nature pics.
Needless to say, even not being into photography, my mind was blown at the results. Just thinking of what I could do when I learn what all these things mean (ISO, AF, exposure, etc, etc) has me all giddy!
All this just so I could take better pics of my SWAG! Eh, what can I say, Yuri Nation problems ^^
Ah, in case anyone is wondering, that camera photo was taken with my S8. Looks good but zoom in and you will see the difference between a real camera and a
fake phone camera! Who knows, maybe soon it won’t be scanning but photo-taking of the mags and all that.
…Is It’s Own Reward!
Time for a confession dearest Readers! Today I have cried more than I have ever cried watching a movie in a long time! That movie is of course ‘Logan’. This is the final time we will ever get to see Hugh Jackman play this wonderful character, hell, I think even Mr Stewart!
The very first movie I watched in cinemas was 2000’s X-men! Since then I have watched every movie because of Wolverine. If there are others too who grew up with these characters then I warn you before hand if you have not watched this movie yet. Take some tissues with you! Do not be embarrassed when you break down while watching this movie! Everyone who is not new to these characters (and even those who are) will not even put up a fight! You are all going to cry your eyes out!
Why old fans, well, for me I was not crying because of what I was seeing on the screen but rather what the consequences and implications of what was being said and shown is what made me completely break down!
If you are only into this now, you will not appreciate Professor X and Wolverine’s relationship. You will not understand what they are feeling in the events of this movie. You will not fully grasp their inner conflict or the hidden meanings in their words they exchange!
For example, the moment that hit me the most was during a certain scene when the WTF moment happened and we finally saw what the evil organisation’s ‘success’ experiment was that saw them give orders to terminate the kids. What will make most, especially the new ones cry is not why I was crying. It was the implied and the unfortunate!
Okay, this is a spoiler so stop here if you do not want to know.
When Xavier died, it was not his death that broke me but rather what he implied just before the ‘success’ killed him and then the fact after. I never read the books so I had no idea but we find out (it is implied) that Professor X is the one that killed off all the mutants. Yeah, let that sink in your brains! If you are attached to these characters as I am then you think of all those people that Xavier cared for, all those people that believed in him, loved him and he snuffed them all out just like that!
Like, what even…
Logan survived obviously because of his abilities and physicality.
So all this time they have been surviving while Logan tried to both protect Xavier and the world because his brain was now a weapon of mass destruction! Seriously, when Professor X lost control I was truly terrified. They showed off his un-surpassed abilities perfectly.
And all this time he did not know what he had done. Both is own mind and the medicine that Logan had been giving him made him forget and prevent him from remembering what he had done because, man, can you imagine what he had done if he had remembered?
But he did remember, and just as he was confession to Logan, just as they were about to get that respite especially Logan, who had to live with this secret all by himself, the truth being spoken would have saved them both at least a handful of trauma but guess what happened…Xavier was talking to the wrong Logan. It was another clone of his and just as Xavier had finished his confession that would have been able to surely give Logan some much needed peace, he took three adamantium claws to the chest!
So Logan still doesn’t know that Charles knows. He did not get to hear his confession and Charles did not get to lift that burden off his last pupil. They were robbed off that! But at least Charles did not die thinking that Logan was the one to kill him. That would have been completely savage!
To close up, it was not that Charles died that made me cry but the fact that he had killed all of the mutants off, the fact that Logan knew and was saving him from finding out. The fact that Logan knew and he still cared for the Professor so much. The fact that they were robbed of the chance to leave this heavy burden aside between them.
And this is just one example!
So yeah, I cried so much I was wiping my face in the cinema like I was six or something. This movie was so good. So good that it totally failed at what it went out to do! That is that it was supposed to let go of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine but now I want him even more than I have ever wanted him! Looks like this is it for me! Without him I have no more interest in this universe.
God, this is just like Idol graduation! I mean the man has been playing the character for 17 years!!!! I should give him some slack. But hey, five more fans will take my place when I leave as they follow these new Gens but for me Hugh is Wolverine, Famke is Jean, Patrick is Professor X, Ian is Magneto, Halle is Storm, Anna is Rogue, James is Cyclops! These are my X-men and if this really is Wolverine’s last stand, then I am done too.
Thank you Fox, you got me into action movies with your first X-men movie but without Hugh, I have no business being here either, so, goodbye. We had a nice ride together, you and I!
