Welcome my sweet little geeks! A few days ago I had a bit of a breakdown. Bad luck had gotten me down. Following Pokémon spoilers I did not want to follow to get something to write about felt wrong as well. I want to have my happy place where I can freely ramble about whatever is on my mind, on whatever geeky topic I want. My paradise! Since I like some community feeling at the very least, you are welcome to join me here. Don’t mind the webadress, it will change once I buy a new domain.
Such a lovely place
As you can see my resort is still amazingly pink, a happy little place with a nice pink sunset, lovely beach and those weird Tiki things are a lot less annoying than the ones in Crash Bandicoot. The blog will be a safe space, a haven, a resort. I want to be able to be me, but I realised it needed to be the complete me. Every geeky little bit of it. So this is why I chose the theme of paradise, in the non intrusive non cloudlike matter.. because that version..well it might not be for everyone. Who doesn’t like a tropical island resort?! So that is what we will stick with. Does this means I have completely changed? No! There will always be the pinkness and even pokémon will still be a big part of this blog. Just not every day, that was just to much Pokémon.The poké-poop got everywhere and trust me it’s nothing like Digimon Poop. I love the franchise very much , more than anything even but I also wanted to get excited about others things. We still have the poképool , but paradise also has a movie theatre, a bar where we can discuss things we have experienced and much more. Paradise also has a lot more rooms for all sorts of geeky people to stay! Fun for everyone and even more fun for me!
The Cocktail Menu
So what do we offer in my tropical resort? Well we have a much wider variety of content cocktails which you can come in a bunch if different flavors as well. Reviews, rambles, rants and much more. They are all served under the geeky umbrella with a funny straw and some refreshing voice ice cubes. For now I serve five different flavors. Let me talk a bit about them.
I am quite fond of movies, I love going to the cinema and finding obscure movies to watch. I am mostly a horror-buff but I do enjoy a good animated or superhero movie as well. As long as it doesn’t feature dubbed over real animals or Eddie Murphy, I am good. (Can you guess what my least favorite movie in the world is?) From time to time I will serve you this content which can be recognised by the featured image, that shows a movie reel and a duck! Why a duck? I love ducks! Mostly horror ducks, I even like talking once.. when they are not voiced by Eddie Murphy.. did he ever voice a duck?! He shouldn’t! The Movieto will mostly contain reviews,but sometimes I might talk about a cinematic trend or universe as well. Expect some rage as well because I can be quite picky when it comes to movies. I do not believe we should forgive .. because ‘It’s a movie’ or ‘It’s the Disney Mindset’ or the worst one ‘Little children don’t know any better’ No I demand my entertainment to be at least somewhat thought out! Most of the time!
Pokémon I mostly love for the games, but wouldn’t you know it that I play other games as wel! ‘NANI’ Yes other games! Nothing fancy or so, but it’s something! So I do like to talk about these kinds of things as well. Mostly reviews again, but also more reflective pieces about what I think is wrong with our current game culture and some news I like can be found inside these cocktails. I am not much of a modern gamer though so I will mostly be viewing the classics, remake or original, I love the classic games right up until the gamecube age. After that, well the Wii wasn’t a very nice console if you have difficulty console to have if your motorically challenged so I went with an X-box 360.. it had the same colour! While I own about 70 games on xbox 360, none of them had THAT magic. So yeah expect a lot of retro-fashioned gaming stuff. Yay! It will be delightful! I got so many plans for this already. You can recognise this cocktail by the controller logo and the Owlbear! Why the Owlbear? Because it’s an owlbear!
The Poké Colada
Not everything has to change, so a large chunk of this blog still will be dedicated to my beloved subject of pokémon. Expect the usual suspects in terms of content as well. Trainer profiles, Top 5’s , pokemon reviews, and even my OWLS post this month will be about Pokémon.. to an extend. Everything you used to get from me will be there but of course for the next good while we will put a big focus on Pokémon Sword and Shield. Discussing my journey through the game, reviewing the anime, discussing some of the awesome new pokémon I find and me fawning over Galarian Ponyta. Like I mentioned earlier I decided not to get into the leaks to let some sense of wonder still exists which fills me with joy and it seems more me. Which made me feel like I made the right choice not to JUST blog about pokémon. As much as I had to tell about them, looking into every little bit of news.. just made me lose the childlike sense of awe when I figured new things out at my own pace. I am very much looking forward to this cocktail myself. Woop woop! You can recognise this cocktail by the highlighted image with pokéball and chibi Sylveon! It’s still my favorite pokémon..but now has a competitor. Expect a cage match for my love, somewhere in the new game’s release.
The Anime Spritz
By now those who know their liquor must realise that these images of drinks have nothing to do with what’s in the glass, for one .. none of these cocktails are originally pink secondly they are all in the wrong glass with the wrong garnish…hey I do not drink that much! I just like fruity colourful drinks and it’s a paradise theme. Besides a game, a movie buff and poké-freak I am also a bit of a Weeaboo, I like other anime as well. I like a lot of cutesy stuff but mostly into the weird and over the top thingies. I’ve outgrown basic Shounen a bit , even though I still enjoy viewing some good old Dragon Ball or even My Hero Academia. While I love cutesy stuff one of the animes I’ve never been able to stomach is Lucky Star, it is potentially one of my most hated series.. I just can’t get into it no matter how hard I try. I tend to dislike a lot of the more popular things, while recognising their quality, Code Geass for example I also very much dislike even if I liked Euphemia , I never felt these character were ‘human’ or something. So the reviews I will put out might be significantly different from what you see around I bet I will not just talk be doing reviews though, I will also analyse characters, maybe put them in a pokémon match against each other to see who will win. You can take a girl out of the pokéball but you can’t take the pokéball out of this girl..that would be offensive.I needed a logo to represent anime..which was a lot harder than the other four.. so I chose the icon most anime fans will tie in with anime itself.. the crunchyroll symbol.. then I made it pink because everything is better in pink. There is a unicorn in there as well because they make everything more magical! Hopefully my content as well.
The fifth and final sort of content will be my most personal content, stuff that really is about me. This can be very broad and is basically a cheap trick to talk about anything I want when I want. My favorite board game .. says something about me.. so I can place it hear. If I want to talk about cards against humanity instead , I will just review it under the guise of a very fun play session I experienced. From my dreams to my past , from my greatest moments to my biggest fails it all will be discussed under the banner of this cocktail. It’s geeky lifestyle mixed with otherwise uncategorizable brainfarts. So when this cocktail shows up you are always in for a surprise. I can not promise you a Martin-Me every week because this cocktail is best written when inspired and I can never tell when that sentiment hits. Feel free to ask me personal questions in the comments if you want this subject to pop up more! Then I will answer those for you in a new post! Yay! Arrangements!. The logo is a cute twin tailed geeky girl and our little pet companion is a d20, for those who do not know what a d20 is.. it’s a 20 sided dice… and YES that is a pet! Dices have feelings too! If you do not agree go play D&D you’ll know what I am talking about!
Plenty of flavour
So as you can see we will go all in with the new luxurious resort theme. Join the other guests at the resort and get a free imaginary cookie and a lei garland as well. If I get enough of a community we might even open up a pool bar! Pinkie’s Pool Bar does sound kinda need… *swagger-walking-animation* So thematically we should be good. Of course our review system will be themed towards the tropics as well. Pinkie does not grade based on numbers because that makes it to easy for people to attack me about it… ‘She only gave Dr Stone a 6’ instead I will use some very ambiguous flavors for my reviews. I think they speak for themselves.. and wouldn’t you say.. they are super cute!
So with this new direction I would like you to take seat at our imaginary pool, or run around in our arcade or even go take a walk on our beach and just enjoy yourself. You are in a place of like minded spirits, let’s enjoy ourselves together, no matter who you are, where your from or what flaws you have. As long as you are a geek, this can be your haven. Welcome to Paradise.
