Game Break

     My sister took back her computer, so I haven't been able to post for a while, except for yesterday, but I had that set ahead of time. :P  While I haven't had internet I've been playing "Golden Sun: Dark Dawn" on the Nintendo DS. I got stuck, so I decided to take a break and use my sister's laptop while she's out of town. Here's a game trailer, if you're wondering what the game I'm playing looks like.

    
Oh, and Happy Earth Day!!!

Robin Hood

     My brother and I watched the "Robin Hood" movie with Russel Crowe. Robin Hood is my all time favorite historical figure, and I love how this movie portrays a different version of his story than what has been done in the past. When we first started the movie we were thinking that it had a certain scene in it, but when it didn't we were a little disappointed. But then I realized that the scene was from "Prince Of Persia" and felt kind of silly, considering I've seen "Prince Of Persia" so many times.
     Here's the clip that we thought was in "Robin Hood."
^_^  Heeheehee I know I've said this before, but I love this movie.

     Here's a music video for "Robin Hood."


     Here is an artwork that is apparently based off of a video game that I really want to play now called "Fate/Extra."

Arrested Development

     It's been 7 years since the show "Arrested Development" ended. Sheesh, I can't believe it's been that long. I'm really excited, because, in May, Netflix is going to be adding 15 new episodes to the show. I'm not sure exactly how it's going to be, since it has been seven years since the show ended, but never-the-less I'm looking forward to the new episodes. Here's a video showing a bunch of clips from the show.


and now a message from the law offices of Bob Loblaw...

Hahaha, whenever my brother and I see a law commercial or billboard, we always say "Bob Loblaw."

Battlefriends

     I've never watched "Battlestar Galactica," but I'm a big fan of "Friends." After watching this video, I'm considering giving "Battlestar Galactica" a try.

Book Review; "Cinder"

     A while back I promised to write a book review of "Cinder," by Marissa Meyer.  I really wish I hadn't. I hate giving reviews, and I'm not very good at it. But since I promised, I'll give it a shot.


    "Cinder" is about a cyborg girl named Cinder who lives in a society that thinks of cyborgs as less-than-human. The story takes place in a future setting and Cinder lives in what is known as New Beijing, so the book has a lot of asian elements to it, which I love. Cinder's only friends are her younger step-sister and a very funny robot named Iko. To earn her keep, Cinder works as a mechanic for robots and gadgets and what-not, which is how she meets Prince Charming Kai. I liked the prince right away, mainly because his name is the name I picked out as a kid as what I would name my son if I ever had one. Kai's father, the Emperor, has a plague that has been, well, plaguing the world. I don't want to give too much away, but I will tell you that there is a crazy lunar Queen with freaky mind-powers who wants to marry the prince, there is a ball, but no glass slipper. Not even a glass foot, which had me really disappointed. But all-in-all it was a great book and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
     There are a couple more books that I have read, but I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to give a review of them. I guess it depends on how horribly you guys react to this review.  ^_^


Yay!

Posting two days in a row! WOOOOOO!
     The new season of Doctor Who started, and I am so excited. Especially since David Tennant and Billie Piper are supposed to guest star in the show's 50th anniversary episode. Here's a video of the current Doctor, Matt Smith, and his new companion, Clara.

Such a good video.

Art Attack 4-7-13

     I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever have good internet again. Apparently my house is in a spot where no one provides internet. Except AT&T, but they said they can't unless someone in my area either moves, or gets rid of their internet. So I'm stuck with my neighbor's wi-fi for now. I discovered that if I steal my little sister's laptop and sit on the side of my house that's as close to my neighbor as possible, I can get internet a little more than I was with my computer. So hopefully I'll be able to post a little more, unless my sister decides to take her laptop back. :P
     Now on with the Art Attack! I'm not sure what today's theme is, maybe I'll decide after I put up a few pictures. Nope, nevermind, I decided. Today's theme is going to be paper art.

Paper Wings by Jake-Of-Spades 


     Wow, I'm gonna need me some cardboard, glue, and lots and lots of paper.

Getting My Mind To Work by ciomaria
     Hahaha I think I'd need a whole team of tiny paper people to get my mind to work.

Paper Dress by angelicetherreality
     Wow, such a beautiful paper dress. I would love to wear this, you know, if it wasn't rainy, or windy.

"Long" Quilling by paperJin
      This was made from a technique called, "quilling." I have no idea how it's done, but after seeing this I think I should learn.

     That will be all for today. Sorry for the infrequent posts, I'm hoping it will be fixed some time soon.

A Portrait In Pink

     So yesterday I ran out of books. It was okay since I have my sister here for the week while she is on vacation. So we watched some T.V. and a movie. But today she was playing video games and I had nothing to do. I haven't drawn anything in a really long time and I've never been good at drawing people. So of course I drew a portrait of my sister. In pink. I was going to save it until the Art Attack after I get internet, but I'm actually quite proud of it, so I'm showing you now. ☺

      I don't have a scanner so I had to just take a picture. Pink is my sister's favorite color, so I did her picture in pink, orchid, magenta, mahogany, and peach. When I gave it to her she was ecstatic, not just because it was in pink, but because I put her freckles and little moles on it. Hahaha, she's such a silly girl. My sister is a huge mystery fan, so I named the picture, "A Portrait In Pink." Now to see if anyone gets it. :P

  [Update: If anyone did get it, they didn't comment on it. I named it "A Portrait In Pink" because the very first episode of BBC Sherlock is called "A Study In Pink." ☺]
