Another Leave of Absence Due to Bleh

So what sucks is I thought I was all better and healing up just fine, and come to find out that life throws ya a curve ball and says “Too bad!” It seems like there is the strong potential for more surgery (nothing serious) on the horizon which depending on what happens may put me worse for wear than I am right now, which is unfortunate. Here’s hoping it doesn’t and makes my recovery more speedy! Coupling onto the fact that I may have carpal tunnel, my blogging time has been sufficiently cut down to size unfortunately. My year of wanting to do collaborations and do more stuff on this blog is slowly slipping away from me.

I do plan on attempting the 5 posts for my 100 follower celebration before I am put more out, but time seems to be escaping me a bit. They shall be done, but it may unfortunately take longer than was stated. February is the shortest month after all!

All that said, I will try to be reading people’s posts and commenting when I can. I may not be up for making long posts, but my long rambling comments shall not be silenced! I will try to make as much as I am still able to in the hopes that there is no need for surgery and I can focus more on my circulation problems. I don’t know when the necessity of another break will occur, just so people don’t think I dropped off the edge of the blogverse (like usual it was bound to happen again, things were going too well after all) I decided to make this post.

It’s all good and hopefully when I know I have a clean bill of health I can start doing all the things I wanted to do this year. Mainly get back to my Hunt for the Great Antagonist series of posts since it has been a while since the last one. Also those pesky best of lists that always take me far too long to decide on primarily because you constantly think to yourself “Have I watched enough?!”

On that note though I just thought it be best to let people know I shall be putting this on hold for a bit (even though I should have put this out a bit before now). When I am able to I am going to be doing a lot more, but for now I will have to yet again bid adieu for a bit. Also don’t forget to have yourselves a great day!

100 Follower Commemoration Post – A Heartfelt Thank You and One Apology (Also A few Posts I am Making for the Occasion)

So here it is the mountaintop! It seems nice up here until you realize all the other mountaintops to climb. It has taken me a while to get here, but finally after some hard work and determination I managed to trick 100 people follow me! HAHA YOU FOOLS! Little do you know that my plot has now been put into motion with this many souls now in my possession! The end of the world is nigh!

made_abyss-20170813-figure03

Alright, all jokes aside I don’t know how to express my gratitude for the people who follow me. I appreciate all those who decide to look at what I write. I don’t care if a post gets 1 or 100 views in its life time so long as someone looks at it I will feel eternally grateful. For you to follow me because you liked what I wrote, now that is something just a bit more.

Another Update Post – Slight Hiatus Bedridden during Exams

So I have unfortunately dropped off the face of the blogsphere for a bit. With some unfortunate luck I have went from writing papers to writing even more papers. That wouldn’t be a problem if I wasn’t also recovering from minor surgery. Yes I am fine, it honestly isn’t anything but it will make things impossible for me while working on my assignments and resting. Medication can certainly put a damper on things.

So what does this mean for the blog moving forward? Well I will be back at some point in the near future. I have planned out two new antagonists to dissect both involving minus and despair (hint hint wink wink). I will also be finishing my Mario Party Celebration as well. These unfortunately though have no set date to when I will in fact be able to put them up as I may need to go back to surgery if something is wrong (I seriously hope there isn’t that would be a downer XD).

I want everyone who reads my posts to know that I am thankful for every time you even look at them. Even if you don’t like or comment I still appreciate you at least looking at what I wrote. To those who like and comment however I cannot thank you enough for your support over my resurgence of this blog after randomly making it on a whim and turning it into something. I have enjoyed commenting, I try to do it as much as I can (but I get ahead of myself. I am my own worst enemy). I look forward to reading and commenting on your stuff in the future. Just thank you for all that you have done for the community, for other bloggers, for just being great people and for brightening up my day when reading and thinking about your posts. To which I will return to doing or may still be able to do a tiny bit while resting!

If I don’t post by Christmas, I’ll wish you a merry Christmas right now and may all your wishes comes true. Remember to dream big, to enjoy life and have fun with everything you do. Always remain happy and smiling and I’ll be back before you know it to be that random guy who talks about stuff! Smiles for all!

Oh and don’t forget!

HAVE YOURSELF A FANTASTIC DAY!

Unique Blogger Award Nomination – This Time it’s Prompt!

I have completed this within a month! At the very least it was around a month in my mind. Here I shall answer questions from the gracious people who gave me awards to answer from. It may always take me a while to release these when I receive them but mark my words that I will always try my best to answer those that are brought to my attention! So amidst the Mario Party marathon of top 10s here is a little nugget of personality thanks to these two great people. I cannot thank them enough for the nomination.

 

Unique Blogger Award Rules!

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

 

Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime (drunkenanimeblog) 

1. What post was your favorite to write and why?

Well there is one I am writing right now that I am deeply enjoying looking at deeper into an antagonist that I enjoy. It will be released on a later date but of the posts I have already made so far I would have to say the Tucker and Dale vs Evil post I made since it was tweeted about on Twitter by the official page of the film and also on its facebook. That certainly got me a bit teary eyed to see.

 

2. Is there a subject you would like to write about but haven’t quite figured out how to do it yet?

Oh definitely a lot of subjects like that, but I would have to say it was the big finale surprise for the end of my 12 Days of Halloween event. It is because I know I will get a lot of flack for it potentially with how I describe the series I will be talking about. Mostly because I don’t really like either of them and hoped more to have a bit of fun at their expense. One is a beloved series by many and to compare it to the other is a risk especially when it is to poke fun at the former. Who knows if I will actually go through with it and maybe tone it down a bit, but that is the one I am still struggling on how I want to do it. To not come off as hateful but merely to have a bit of fun for those who have experienced both or one.

 

3. What was the last random thing that made you happy?

Seeing my friends after a long break away from them. Enjoying good company, good wine, and just enjoying life for a solid evening of drunken marble race watching.

 

Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews

1) What is a genre of anime (or a series if you want) that you haven’t gotten into yet, but you really want to try?

There is no genre of anime I haven’t tried so far. Though of course there are genres I want to experience more thoroughly much like romance (which is not my forte, have you seen me trying to woo someone…it ain’t pretty). Being a hopeless romantic I love romance movies done right, I still adore The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Romance in anime however has bitten me a bit in how I couldn’t attach myself to the struggle or often got frustrated at what was going on. I should attempt more and see the full range anime has to offer.

 

2) What’s a hobby that you do, but not many of your blog followers know about?

A hobby I have that people don’t know yet. I think my biggest thing would be collecting a lot of different items in the entertainment medium and reorganizing them constantly. I am never satisfied for long of how I organize everything I collect and often restructure it every week or so. I surprisingly just enjoy doing it as a little hobby, a weekly routine that spawned from my hobby of collecting films, anime, etc. I mean I enjoy the search in bargain bins and closing sales, but there is something about the reorganization of my collection that puts a smile to my face.

 

3) What’s your favorite style of music?

My problem is I am a variety listener, often never really settling on a specific style. I fall victim to never really attaching myself to the style but rather the need to listen to something while doing something else. A wandering mind can prove most fatal and distracting myself with whichever music is available is a way for me to not get in my own head (much like exams). If I had to choose a style of music I enjoy I would say an orchestrated soundtrack from a video game. There is just something soothing about retreading nostalgia through music that I find amazing and nothing does that better than a good soundtrack.

I am the Worst at doing Awards! (Mystery Blogger & Sunshine Awards)

Yeah I am not timely at all for doing awards. I try to think about the questions far too long and lose track of time and forget to finally answer them. It is the worst feeling and if I have done that…forgive me it was never my intention. This post was finally made because I received 2 unique blogger awards and have decided to answer them this time in a timely fashion (in another post mind you)! I won’t be doing the nomination for the other two as to do nominations for three different awards is a bit overkill…I’m happy to receive blog awards but to be able to respond to them in a timely matter and think of questions to give out to other people and nominations of my own can be a bit difficult. So for these two awards I will unfortunately not be doing my own questions and nominations…I’m very sorry about that. The Unique blogger though I shall try my best to abide by it in its entirety. In the future I will try to be more timely and space it out, but I thought instead of letting these nominations just fade that I would pour my soul into each question! Since these great people have graciously decided to give me a nod. Well as much soul as I have, not sure how much that may be. Either way let’s move onto the questions!

The 12 Days of Halloween…THE REVENGE!

So we are back once again with probably my favourite feature on this blog of mine, the 12 Days of Halloween! Where I watch something distinctly horror focused for the twelve days leading up to the grand event of Halloween where I will do a fun post that I have been planning to do for so long. This event is the one I was looking forward to most this year for the soul fact that I need more horror films to watch.

This year though I want to evolve the way I do things each time, because a sequel needs to up the ante somewhat. Last year I had a bunch of genres, subgenres and film techniques to have a specific topic for a day. This year it is a little bit different, this year I want to tackle other people’s choices! I want you guys to choose the films or shows I will be watching, mainly because I trust you guys to give me stuff that I will enjoy or writhe in pain over.

So I throw this over to you guys! Which films do you want me to see? Whether it be the gory styling of Miike, some classics, some modern flops worth seeing, I want to see it. Animated or live action! Films or television shows (short enough to binge fast)! So just leave up to two films down below and when deciding the line up, if there is not enough nominations then I shall be using everyone’s nominations. If there are more then I shall have to go by person to make sure enough people get a turn then return for others second picks.

I will say though…no Human Centipede. Just straight up…nope, can’t do it. And nothing I have watched and done a post on in this blog.

The nomination period will be going until October 15. So let’s get the games started!

Why do I Enjoy Big Brother?

Now for all my desire to watch movies, anime, and television shows, there has always been one constant in my watching habits every summer and the beginning of a new year. My “obsession” (as some would like to call it) with Big Brother goes full on! While I may not be on the cameras watching them 24/7 or even paying attention to Big Brother After Dark, I have never not once stopped watching the series. Now after finding myself drawn back in for season 19 and that season finally ending last night, something dawned on me. Why am I so caught up in this show to the point where I feel like I am watching a Hockey match for my favourite team or even the Olympics and cheering on Canada?
