Pinkie’s Birthday Q&A Part 2 (Anniversary Week Day 3)


Hello again Island Guests and welcome to the second part of my anniversary  Q&A. Check out the first part if you haven’t right here or read if after the questions of today! There is no particular order and I scrambled them  the order to be a mix of blogging , personal or  silly questions so you can ready them in any order you want! Most of these are Celestial Sparkles Questions now..but she just asked a really nice mix of balanced questions!  Only the other intro makes more sense if you read it first! With that being said back to your questions. 

Celestial Sparkles Asked

How did you get into anime?

Pinkie Answered:

I wrote a post about that here which tells you my origin story exactly.  The short version, I tried to be a normie for quite a while in my life until people began to bully and shun me despite my efforts to be normal. Due to people quiting my project group and leaving me without their work I got drafted in another college-work-group and those guys happend to be big anime lovers who talked about nothing else and made a business plan centered about it.  I had to learn what it was and it just re-fueled the geek inside me. While I was already fully being shunned I just embraced it this time and ran with it, even got a internship in it and then I was unleashed.. for the deeper story once more you can click here.
Celestial Sparkles Also asked to name 5 things I liked about the 90’s of which I made an even longer post, you can find that post here !

Lita Kino Asked

If you ran your own blog camp what would it look like?

Pinkie Answered:

Is that like a camp to teach people blogging or a camp for bloggers to hang out with each other? I strongly believe people should find their own voice and that is only reached by making mistakes and experimentation so an educational camp would be more less completely focused on finding yourself.  Where in the morning I’ll make you write something about a topic none of you feel comfortable with.. like the alchemy allegories of Pokémon or describing yourself as a fruit monkey including an outfit made of a protein.Then in the afternoon a free writing assignment. Comparing the piece you wrote in the morning and afternoon should have a clear winner! If you read this blog most likely you are a hobby blogger, I’d focus a plan on setting aside ambition as that can easily stifle creativity and makes you unable to discover your voice. Having ambition is fine but it should not be a starting point! First find yourself as a writer, find your voice and style and only then tweak it to appeal more widely. It’s like how a voice actor has to discover what they can do. You find your sound first then can learn to adapt and modify..if you just pretend to be Mark Hamill’s Joker while you can’t actually pull it off you’ll damage your vocal cords and be uit of the business. Writing to me is like that too! Let’s have fun and support each other, so maybe some team building exercises would be part of the course as well.


My real camp would not be educational at all though. It would just be people in a hotel..because.. in the woods we’d have very bad wifi…or at least a camp with wifi. We share breakfast and write a post together like all our laptops in the same hall. Maybe even for each others blogs to like get that team spirit going and for the rest of the day I’d think up silly games that represents us as bloggers. You know like physical games.


Stuff like giant Scrabble where two teams play scrabble but the tiles are made out of big foam mats like the stuff they make pool noodles off..  big enough so two people have to carry it.  You really have to work as a team to make some words. Or maybe Thesaurus Hangman.  Where you ask for a letter and make a word.. but only can answer it with a synonym. Let’s also not forget  the WordPress Block Editor game.. where you try to rebuild a sample of for example a castle with your own old school wooden playing blocks!  But since it’s WordPress one Block is Super Oily.. the other is super glued to another so you can only place it when you placed some other. One block is not an actual block but a  piece of paper.. so you have to find the block that doesn’t below and tape the shape to it.  Which reflects our struggles of dealing with WordPress.

Amazing prices can be won with Spam post bingo . You get a bingo card with 9 objects on it. Like Sneakers, A Slot Machine, A pot of pills and of course money. A random blogger is summoned forth to open their site and check their spam folder..whatever the top post is trying to make you buy or sign up to.. is a hit on your bingo card. And these are just a few of the amazing games I will set up for you all at camp Pinkie… there also will be booze and pink cupcakes…someone please make the cupcakes.

Celestial Sparkles asked

Write A list of books you’ll like to read this year
!

Pinkie Answered:

Okay here goes are you ready?  ……


That is all!  I am not a big book reader anymore, I like blogs and sometimes I pick up a manga and heck I might even pick up a book but I am not someone who plans this. I do like browsing cute bookstores like Livraria Lello in Porto
Portugal and sometimes a book tells me it wants go go home with me and then I do take it and read it. Yet it is all impulse! So no lists! I don’t even have an order for my video game movies I just pick something at whim.

King Coconut The Holy Mailman asked

What game would you like to review but currently can’t get your hands on?

Pinkie Answered:

I bet you’d be really upset if my only answer was Boonga Boonga!  That definitely IS one of them though. I have a thing for weird games, horror games cute games and retro games.  Boonga Boonga defiantly is the first. It’s a arcade game where you spank people, like the tax collector or your mother in law.  Not that i am really into spanking I’d just really love to review that game. Under that same banner I’d love to review Pepsiman and Cho Aniki for PS-One.. but I don’t have a PS-One let alone know if those games are region locked! So there are some games I really like to review but can’t.

A little more attainable are Pokémon Mystery Dungeon DX  and Link’s Awakening on Switch. I’d love to review those two but they are a bit expensive since they are in essence just remakes, I love how they look but they are quite pricey for what they are .. I’m afraid I’d score them poorly just for their price-tag. So for that reason I am waiting for them to go on sale.  In the Steam Department there is Dragon Ball Z Kakarot that is in a same vein as those earlier two. I am sure it will be a pretty amazing game but not worth the bucks! Also not sure if my Laptop Would run it.  This also goes for a couple of horror games like Plague: Tale of Innocence, Song of Horror and mostly Call of Cthulhu. There is not THAT much I want on Steam and having my money locked into Steam usually sucks and I end up buying something I don’t really care for so I am weary to buy these.

Celestial Sparkles also asked

What is your favourite Music Track and Band

Pinkie Answered:

I am not very big on music let alone bands.. I like video game music and instrumental stuff but true good music for me is not the music on it’s own amazing music to me is something that amplifies another experience. Like the Ducktales  Moon theme being the song of my childhood, due to me beating that game and that stage being my Magnum Opus of gaming back then!   Another good example of a music piece I love is This Is Me, from the Greatest Showman. While on its own its own it is impressive and resonates with me being LBGT+  as well as my general outtake on live to just be me.. it resonates as strongly with me as it does because it’s one of the last good memories I have with my father before he began to pull away and condemn his former family. Yet it is also a song that makes me realise that is okay, I would not want to change just so my father would like me more.. this is who I am I tried often enough in the past to change it so if he can’t deal with that.. to bad This is Me.

This also applies to smaller memories for examples one of my favourite tracks ever is Kyrary Pamyu Pamyu’s  Harajuku Iyahoi. The first time I listend to it/saw it was when a important friend moved away ..after she left a good friend at the alter  because she fell in love with another guy. I still cared for her.. and I talked to her.. she  never expected it to happen but she realised while she could make my friend happy she would not be if she stayed. I was afraid I would lose her in my life but one day she invited us to her new house and we had a fun night with pizza, talking and watching music.. when this music began to play I knew we would still be friends for some reason. I met her through writing and she sent me to my first con for her blog,where Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Ponponpon was the big thing..meanwhile she realised  I was sociable and she invited me over.. so that song to me became like a symbol of us becoming friends and Harajuku Iyahoi of us staying friends. And well there is also the amazing video!

Scott Asked

I know that you’re new to anime, what other types of media (besides bad movies) do you watch?

Pinkie Answered:

Well new is a big word, I have just seen significantly less than most of you. I’ve been watching anime for maybe 8 to 10 years but do to having a less supportive platform a good chuck of it I did not clock THAT many flight hours. I watch a lot of other stuff, like adult cartoons! I am madly in love with Hazbin Hotel but also stuff like Futurama.  Would you believe it I also watch some good movies! I am actually quite a big movie buff. I am a big fan of horror which mostly means bad movies but there are a few gems out there.  I also am a big fan of movies like Catch Me if You Can. I watch a lot of movies, some horrible .. like that Lion King Remake.. or Cats..or Troll 2 and Rubber, some good, I don’t like war movies though or most time piece movies.  I also love Sentai Shows and used to like those supernatural shows like Buffy IZombie , Charmed, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Winnona Earp stuff like that.. just not recently. I have fallen a bit out of love with the 45 minute/ 60 minute episode format shows. I need that time to watch 3,5 hour tabletop games on Youtube!

I follow a handful of Pokétubers on YouTube and Twitch and I really love card openings or Dragon Ball Gatcha Videos. I totally Adore the analysis videos of Totally Not Mark on Dragon Ball and One Piece and I like to watch Kizuna Ai play video games as well ProJared who really plays ot my sense of nostalgia, despite all the accusations and all. Masoko X’s story telling really inspires me ..but besides those I don’t follow a lot of other YouTubers.. There is Chris Stuckmann I watch for movie reviews, I do like the Completionist as well. I HATE those extremely shouty YouTubers like Pewdiepie, Filthy Frank or those who speak in memes or laugh at their own jokes all the time. I want to see a person. The only one who can scream is Ai-Chan because she is adorable.

Celestial Sparkle asked

What is your best Childhood Memory
?

Pinkie Answered:

One memory I have I am particularly fond of is playing Nintendo 64 with my baby sister. We would play smash where I’d pick Kirby and she’d pick Pikachu ..facing of on the Star Fox ship not sure how the stage was called on N64 cause it’s in space and not on the planet the stage is named for.  We would play some skitch usually travel related.. Kirby would be traveling on the same ship as Pikachu and be a annoyingly talkative passenger, wanting to make Friends.. Pikachu meanwhile just came from a long hard pokébattle so he is super annoyed when a pink baby asks him .. they eventually get in a fight and face of.. We wrote a lot of versions of that story and act it out as if they were action figures. We’d play for hours the journey taking them to other stages as they fought on!  It all had a bit of a slapsticky feel but it was amazing! It was just great fun and it was the one game I could win my sister would not smack me for winning.So that’s a plus!

That Random Editor asked

What Challenges do You face as a Blogger?

Pinkie Answered:

Mostly the romanticised image of being a content creator. We all see Guy X get an amazing amount of likes, health communities with everyone having their own Subreddit these days, the whole going viral idea. It makes the world of blogging seem much larger than it actually is. It’s easy to see a big blogger and think “I can do that” because the numbers we get on WordPress pale in comparison to things that are so common to us like Instagram, Twitter and even YouTube.  Because we so oftenly see influencers gain a million followers it’s easy to classify numbers like 1000 as small. It creates a titled view of the world by exposure of sorts. Being a creator means people following you .. so people liking you right? I am cool now?!
Yet then you notice.. another creator like you having 10x the likes.. and suddenly you feel super unliked!



Keeping your blog being about you despite these expectations is one of the hardest things I had to face. Stuff like measuring likes, ..because we see it on YouTube, gathering as many followers as we can because we do it on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can warp blogging into something that it’s not. It is just so easy to fall for this because without effort we can know exactly how big everyone’s page is. WordPress, Twitter, YouTube.. they all display the number of followers and likes.. easy for the world to see and compare .. and for someone who had to fight to be noticed most of their lives.. that can be a bit of a curse. I’ts great that I have 300+ people following me but that other blog might grow faster..or that one blog with less followers gets more likes, it is easy to feed insecurities in this system. Then there is the marketing content! The following syndrome Exposure to so many articles on HOW to write a blog.. who structurally tell you not to be to personal.. not to tell your real opinion but a bit of a watered down version.. word counts etc.. it all is there for us to get lost in. Then we can also easily end up as copies of those we aspire to be. There is only one Karandi..so people wanting to imitate that style will oftenly just come of as a “lesser version” I will not be a professional and with that comes a different set of rules, but this is a set of rules that is written nowhere, no one tells you how to be yourself how to make blogging fun for you.. that you have to discover and it’s easy to get disheartened before then..because all around you .. you see signals to be different.

Tsubaki Kuro asked

What would you call a great day?

Pinkie Answered:

If I expect a day to be a certain way ahead of time it can only be disappointing or living up to my expectations now can it?! If I can get through the day without needing my pacemaker it’s already a good day! Achieving some of the things that stumble on my path definitely help. My life is kinda like one of those clicker mobile games.. you know you tab on computer and a timer goes down as your character writes her blog and when she is done a lot of collectables spawn which you swipe over to collect. It’s quite easy to beat a level with one star.. and that means i progress which already is great! If I expect to get three stars the game suddenly becomes a lot more frustrating.

Just take a look out on the internet, expectations are what is souring our world big time. We expect the newest Pokémon to look like Breath of the Wild and when it’s not it sucks! A great day could be anything!  Sometimes all it needs is a great piece of chocolat another day I win a unicorn at the fair. So as long as I have HP left that’s all I ask of a day.

Mallow Asked

Have you thought about doing a YouTube or A podcast and who would you guest be?

Pinkie Answered:

I don’t voice very well, I twitch a lot so a wired headset is trouble, I don’t have a strong voice either so it’s really taxing to speak long so a podcast is out. Even when I DM I am fairly soft spoken, which works in real life but not really for recording. YouTube I tried to do with a friend with me being a writer and editor and they being my  voice talent but that was a mess.  Maybe in the further future I will try again.. but well it’s really hard to do my style without getting a COPPA-Law issue..cause you know I am all about pink and unicorns! While I am not a blog for kids, or would be a YouTube for kids with my style.. I think it’s really easy to get flagged!

If I can’t do it the way I want it I am not going to do it. As for a guest all of you would be welcome of course. To me your are as important as voice actors or animators or YouTubers. We are all just people trying to keep that hobby alive and maybe earn a buck or two with it if possible at all. Though I would squee if I can get Matthew Mercer on my show.. or Laura Bailey or Sam Riegel. Basically anyone of the Critical Role cast.. Not because they are gods but because I really want to thank them what they did for me. Speaking of which.. thank all of you for reading again!

Celestial Sparkles asked

Choose a Word for this year and explain why!

Pinkie Answered:

I am going to answer this for my year of blogging and not for 2020 because I feel you mean my year of blogging. I’d choose Metamorphosis as word. Not only does it resonate with the Sentai culture I rediscovered this year, it also describes my blogging journey very well. From a small blog with two visitors to one where I get like a solid 100 views per day.  I also changed from A wanna be YouTuber who settled for a blog to someone who rediscovered her passion for blogging and who now is genuinely having fun with what she does. I changed from writing for an audience I thought that was out there.. to writing for an audience I think I had to writing for me. Like from caterpillar to pupa to butterfly.  From fleeing from reality I moved onto making this blog a part of my reality. From escape to healing. It had multiple incarnations to reflect that and now after on year I am quite content with what it has become! Like as if it has grown up! Yay! This was such a good final question! Thanks Celestial!

And just like that! My questions are done!
If I forgot your Question.. I probably made a Twitter mistake ! Feel free to ask about it in the comments! Tomorrow is the actual anniversary date of my first post! Rather than do something insightful I decide to give a little gift away! Another one will be on Sunday!
What you can win on both days will be a secret for now..but Tomorrow’s gift will be a rather personal one.. while Sunday we conclude with a bigger one! I am already excited!
See you then!

Pinkie’s Birthday Q&A Part 1 (Anniversary Week Day 2)

*Insert Party Horn Sound Effect Here*  Dear Island Guests! It’s my Blogs Anniversary week! And since most of you know me as my avatar, I guess It’s Pinkie’s Birthday as well… PARTAY!..  Why week and not day?!  Well It took me a few days to build this blog so I am unsure about it’s actual birthday.. plus everyone does a day! I am weird.. so I do a week! I plan to be the mad-hatter the geeky  blogging community you know! Anyway apparently a Q&A is a thing to do for your b-day! So here it is!  Let’s get on with the questions! There were a lot more than I expected so now there are two posts!

Nabe-Chan asked

How did you come up with your blog’s theme? That’s some Amazing dedication to create custom images for each blog post you do!

Pinkie Answered:

 Alliteration is key! While this blog originally started out as Pinkie’s Pokemon I needed something new that also had a P in it’s name that oozed positivity. As I really wanted my blog to be a haven where everyone can come and relax! Apparently another blogger who was named Pinky also known as Pink-Chan and not Pinkie (we are not the same person) had a website named Pinky’s Palace and I actually started a blog once named Pinkie’s Palace.. but I forgot the login for that! So I could not delete that and use my unicorn princess theme I used for that one. So Pinkie’s Paradise it became! The Multifaceted Ocelot Coconut helped me brainstorm.  A holiday is a place where you can relax no matter where you come from or what you do .. so it worked!

That being said , yes the custom images do take a fair bit of my time but since I am sick at home, unable to work I got enough time on my hands to manage this. I have a lot of fun making these images.  Plenty Images I make small tweaks too people don’t see or references only a single person but hey most of the time I think they are pretty neat for someone who cuts everything out with the mouse on her couch or a touchpad! I would love to work neater but I lack the set up to be accurate enough. I might not be the strongest writer in this place but this way I feel I can really put my own stamp and branding on a post regardless. So there is that.

Irina-Senpai Asked


Do you have a 2020 Blog Goal?

Pinkie Answered:

I originally aimed to have 300 followers by the end of the year, I felt like 300 followers in two years would be great. I already did that. I wanted to reach 300 posts at least (like write every other day back from when 2020 started)  and I am like 9 posts or so away from that, so unless my hand gets chopped off and I have to learn how to work with a prosthetic that will be done by next week.  There is one goal that I want to reach and that is an average like rate of around 20 posts.  Lots of people who follow me are marketing blogs so with the 20 likes I could measure like a “loyalty”  thing.. but honestly I am close to that either so wether i am making it or not I am actually already quite satisfied with where I have come. 

I mostly just want to have fun with my blog, I could readjust my blog goals but I think I would rather watch and see how much I move past my expectations.. that feels more rewarding than maybe scaling my desired number of followers up to 500! I won now! Why would I risk losing. I might want to do a collab this year, but I am shy to ask people..but one might be in the works even just need to work out some ideas. I would love to find a co-writer at one point.. just for a sense of community but that is actually more a 2021 goal to be fair.  So no real goals anymore, wishes sure.. dreams always but I had my goals! So I will take the W , and just leave it at that.

Mallow Asked

Would You eat a Raw Chili?

Pinkie Answered:

Well maybe not a Ghost pepper or a California Reaper but anything up until 100,000 Scoville I’d eat without a bet or a dare. For a drink or two I’d move up to 325.000 Scoville (A Madame Jeanette.. which I love with Peanut Butter) I’d be willing to go up to about a Chocolate Habanero which looks delicious and measures up to about 577,000 scoville. I bet that will speed up my metabolism real nicely and ruin my appetite! But I’d need a fair bet to be convinced into doing that!

Tsubuaki Kuro asked

What is Your Favourite Food?

Pinkie Answered: 

Probably Sushi, specifically I am super addicted to Spicy Tuna Maki and Salmon or Tuna Rainbow Rolls. In fairness there are foods I liked better like some food I had in a two star restaurant. Like lacquered eel with sea bass marinated with a Yanthé (which is a local Yoghurt culture)  creme asian herbs apple, chives, soy and some other ingredients, I had Foie Gras and Caviar.. which are all really nice but exclusive! My favourite food is something I should be able to indulge in whenever I want and for my Spicy Tuna Maki I just need to cross my street.

Takuto Asked

What’s one thing you’d like to  do to branch out further in the future?

Pinkie Answered:

I would love to get some people on my team for example. Like I am all over the place in terms of content but I would love to work with a guy or a gal who’d make additional content for the blog.. for example one who writes about games, one about movies etc. I’d assign them all all a handle based on a colour like me.. so like Violetta, Noir,  Weiss,  Verde, Azura, Crimson.. stuff like that. The more the merrier! As my health is is right now I can not voice.. which really hampers my options a bit in anything that is non-written content.  So my expansion would be more in the community direction.

If I had some “Paradise Staff” I’d maybe open a Discord, where people can play Pokémon Showdown against the staff or heck Mario Party for all I care.. or Cards Against Humanity, though I fell out of love with that one,  I prefer game Use Your Words nowadays it can be a much cleaner and whittier kind of fun..Scribbleio is fun as well.. with custom words of course. You know.. something more in the togetherness term of things.. but far future stuff for now!
I’d also like to do stuff like Jeopardy but again.. I’d need a team and for that I need to grow.. so we are probably talking years here!

Megan Marie Asked

If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go?

Pinkie Answered

While the universe is a vast place, I think I’d be bored out of my mind if I’d go to the planet Laligurans (yes that is an actual planet name) I’d get pretty lonely if I traveled to Cruinlagh (also an actual planet) so if there was any place I could go, I’d go to the Pokémon Café in Tokyo to enjoy a Mew’s Fluffy Marshmallow Drink or a Gengar’s Berry drink as well as indulge in the food! I mean I could clearly go anywhere in the galaxy so clearly I have the cash! So Tokyo would be unsafe and I’d try every dish in the Pokémon café just so I could order every type of pokémon dishware!  I’d probably be very happy settling in there as well. I feel I could really crawl out of my shell there and just go on a Harajuku tour and make friends!  Obviously I’d visit the pokémon center as well . I can squeeze in some Akihabara and .. since traveling to  these planets would take a LOOONG time I bet there is time to go to the Tokyo Kawaii Monster Café and Sanrio Puroland as well.

Onsens and Izakaya would also be visited. Probably a few suitcase vendors to to carry all the figurines I would buy. A shinto temple, the pokémon café again, Tokyo Disneyland, Pokémon Café again… that red eiffel tower thing.. of course after climbing I need lunch… I’d want to visit that big gundam and the Hibiki (whiskey) distillery for good measure.

This also answered Celestial Sparkles Question:  Name A Few Placed You’d visit in Japan

Tsubaki Kuro also asked

What is your favourite Anime?

Pinkie Answered:

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the way I experienced that.. with friends and the energy in a room was unforgettable to me, this is my jam anyway but to me it was much more than an anime it was an actual experience! An experience I will never forget.

Pix and Lita  Asked

What Have you enjoyed most about blogging over the last year? (What was the best thing about blogging for you)

Pinkie Answered

I really love the community I have found and people to interact with! However I was not prepared on how finite it is! People vanish, contacts get lost and I had a bit of trouble knowing what to expect. It took me a while but I have now found my place I think.. I love making contacts to this day! I am beginning to know a few of you and beginning to chat more and more with people as well! It’s not fully where I want it yet but it is super close to being my favourite thing still! There is one thing  that I actually enjoyed more than you guys!  I know that must mean I really love it right? 

That thing honestly is my life. When I started blogging friends were moving away, dad was ignoring me because his new girlfriend wants him to be with his new family not with his old,  I wasn’t feeling too physically or mentally healthy  (still that is a thing but hey I improved). I needed people around me and my life was being led.  Now I lead my life! My blogging allows me to explore movies , anime and games I would have not otherwise..because I felt eager to experience stuff because I loved writing about it so much! My hobby boosting other hobbies. I felt burned out on games and anime before and blogging has given me a new outtake! I can talk about them with people again. My real life friends really have different tastes than me and some that did not move away really do not like talking a lot. My taste is a bit brighter than theirs so I never could really talk about what I liked and only discuss things like Goblin Slayer.. which I don’t like. Blogging put the joy of experiencing content back!

Celestial Sparkles Asked

Tell us A little something about yourself as a cat?

Pinkie Answered:


Hmm I am more of a dog person but I will try. I’d probably be one of those really awkward cats that like sticks to furniture and gets stuck on there. You know like one of those sticky toy people you throw at your window and who then slowly fall down. That would be me as a cat basically. I’d not be a very hunty cat.. though I wouldn’t like to be petted all the time either.. gotta have me time. I’d probably be a picky eater as well. Like dry mix is not something that would agree with me very well. Like as a human I have trouble with bread. Despite needing some alone time I still would want some affection as well and I’d come and sit with  you when you watch movies. I’d totally leave you alone when your behind your pc though I know how annoying that is!  I’d also hog my toys! My playtime not yours.. you do not take my mouse away from me!

This also answers Tsubaki’s Questions : Dogs or Cats… the real answer is Duck by the way!

Tsubaki Kuro also asked

Who is Your Husbando or Waifu?

Pinkie answered:

 Ciel Phantomhive would be my Husbando. He would not need affection, I just get some money , he gets people off his back for not being married and I will not blow all his cash like an insane shopaholic. I’d offer conversation and companionship when he needs it and I would be totally okay with him crossdressing all the time. A marriage of convenience since I am not into guys!

My search for a Waifu ended in failure, I had a few candidates and realistically Sayaka Saeki  from Bloom into you would be an ideal partner for me to settle down with, I like how she is strong and convinced in her ways and I respect her a lot more than the two main characters. She is super pretty as well . There is a tranquility in her eyes I find mesmerizing. Like she looks like the type who can except my demi-sexual nature and would be content with just curling up to me with her book! While I shout at my Switch playing Mario Party or Shiny hunting in Pokémon…perhaps not Mario Party I would definitely hit Sayaka in the head..she’d take it though.. he is a bit used to getting flung around.. i’d feel bad though! Perhaps I should just download Yu-Gi-Oh on there! 

Winst0lf Portal Asked

Do you ever get hit with writer’s block? If so, how do you get through it?

Pinkie Answered:

Not really no! I do on occasion get stuck on a topic but my blog has 6 main pillars: Movies, Games, My Life, Pokémon, Fiction and Anime. If I hit a bump with one of them I just move on to the next topic usually in the afternoon and in the evening I either watch/play or do something about the topic I had failed earlier so I get inspired to write for it the next day.  I try to stay away from high flying content nowadays so no more Alchemy Allegories in Pokémon or  an Analogy of the line-work in this anime and what it could mean.  I write about my experience sometimes there is some depth in it.. sometimes it’s  trashing a bad movie to the ground. 

Fiction is the saving grace for me.. there is always something I can write about that, always some random fantasy. Pokémon Top 5’s are also super easy to do…for about 6 more weeks.. then we will begin need to do something new.. though I might even take people through the entire National Dex one evolution line at a time if I have too. I do not really pose standards to my work anymore, I am a hobby blogger I write because I like writing. Like a kid playing a piano I just wanna have fun. If others have fun with that post as well.. great..if not..I had fun still. When a work doesn’t have to be good the pressure is a lot lower and the chance of blocking is much much lower. I do believe that true art is created on accident and not on purpose.  It might never happen.. but doesn’t matter .. had fun!.

Celestial Sparkles asked

Describe your Unicorns Special Magic

Pinkie Answered:

Well okay so I have 8 unicorns, divided in four pairings.
My oldest unicorns are Yuni and Cohn.  Yuni is a pink somewhat proud unicorn with a bit of arrogance she is very smart. She has the power to give me other thoughts and give me advice.   Cohn is a derpy green male unicorn.. whose stupidity and silliness always make me smile. It has the power to take bad memories away if I hug it hard!

Then we have my tiny triplets. Tiny , Hoaws and Fwen.
They are my dream triplets.. their white skin is shared across the three. But then we have a pink hoof and maned one.. that would be Fwen.. the same but in purple is Hoaws and Tiny has blue details.   Tiny helps me keeps bad dreams away, Hoaws helps me fall asleep soundly and Fwen is good for having pleasant dreams.

Then we have the luck duo. Wan-Hoan and Monospyke Wan is a soft pink with a rainbow main and Spyke is a very vaguely purple but almost white with the same rainbow motive and purple elements. Wan takes away bad luck and Spyke gives good luck! I mostly use Wan since I am not that active but I love them both!

The Final one is Scabbers the Budget Unicorn.. I got him for like 90 cents! He has scales and can change colour from purple to silver.. his magic power is that he is super cool to hug even in warm weather!

Phew.. big question! I am not out of questions yet so I think I will spread this Q&A over two days!  Come back tomorrow for the second part! Sayonoodles! That is Portmanteau of Sayonara and Toodles! Thursday I will do something nice as well! Sunday too! You know the entire week will be great! Stay tuned for that!

Random Talks Again! The Random Topic Generator Part 2

On Wednesdays we always talk a little about me, blogging or things related to online mental health! Since I am super happy right now, I feel like an airy look in my life and mind! What better way to do that.. than random! So I found a new random topic generator on the internet and asked myself some questions! For those willing to partake I used , this random topic generator.. now let’s get started.

Most of my real life friends live here! There is Bean who is my bestie and Bear who is her boyfriend! Those are the people I hang out with the most and go out for spontaneous drinks and nights out! Then there is also my Dragon Ball Pal and the guy living in the same building as me! He plays D&D with us so that is always fun! Having a group to play D&D with would actually thus be my favorite thing… but Bean and Bear do other fun things with me as well. Bean and I go out for lunches and sometimes meet our loud friends as well! Who do not D&D unless it stands for Drink & Drink some more!  This Thursdays my D&D friend and me will finally see each other in person again, at least some of us well! So I am happy about that! I missed them so much!

Disclaimer: Not my Actual Table! I wish I had awesome stuff like that!

Having said that though my city is a pretty terrible place, there is a lot of crime , including murder, drug trade and of course violence and whole lot of intolerance which does not really match with a Kawaii Pink Girl like me! So I am looking to move away to greener pastures. Not that the pastures aren’t green here, the chemical plant I look at when I watch out my windows leaks chemicals so often  that not only the pastures are green.. they are fluorescent too! Cows don’t just say moo they say Kaijmoo. Cowzilla! Of course I am kidding here…..about the cows and the grass only is slightly glow in the dark. The chemical plant does have a lot of leaks of fires though so .. to better places in the future!

My backyard


That really depends! Would I know my life span?! Say if I know I have at least 10 to 20 years left I’d say yes! If it’s a gamble and I can drop dead right here and right now then my answer would be no. I do not believe that the key to happiness is longevity I believe the key to happiness is doing what you want to do. Being rich or famous would open a lot of doors and allow me to do a lot of stuff I can not do otherwise! If I was rich  I would probably eat so much great food, drink amazing wines, travel to the weirdest places that my lifespan would be reduced by ten years already. So it does sound like a sweet deal, I just don’t want to be rich and not be able to use it. That is a sin in my opinion. Sure people can donate to a cause they’d think I like but I could have a lot of fun with a lot of money! One of my dreams is to visit the pokémon café in Tokyo and to visit Japan in general. With my current income that is never going to happen at least not if my health doesn’t improve, I do not see a short term way of getting out of that.  So if I was guaranteed some years of life left to spend the money and have fun.. I’d do it.

The mileage on this image is insane!

We always say that life is the greatest good, but life just like money isn’t all that amazing if nothing happens with it. I have seen my grandfather waste away in an old folks home his dementia claiming the last memories of us. Covid set him free, but if I can prevent even one year of that I’ll happily die a little bit earlier.  Health care staff is constantly given less time with you and less and less people are wanting to train for it as the management keeps cutting away at the budgets to make everything work by the time I get old enough to be taken care for, there will just be a pit of sand with some cloth to keep the worst of the sun away and we will tended by a hunchback named Igor.. whom they have cloned from Florence Nightingale’s DNA. Just making it human enough not to give it human rights and wages. So yeah I will trade Igor in!  I think I can live more in a year without limitations than in 50 with normal limits. I can experience joy until the day I die and even if it’s sooner I’ll die with a big wide smile on my face. Still I would not waste it! So if I can drop dead right here right now I’d not choose the option because I do not want to hurt people! However if people know I died with a huge smirk on my face I think that is solace enough to risk that!

Now this is a weird question… I like it!  Saying I take you Rachel while you are  taking Emily as your lawfully wedded wife is probably a stupid thing to do on your wedding. F.R.I.E.N.D.S was such a wise show like that! Yet I do not think  that is what this question is about. I think it means more like stuff like “we should see other people” or “You are not of my preferred sex when it comes to engaging in the physical act of love’.   Maybe something like “Sweety did you make sure to turn the oven off when we left”  when your partner has trouble with that sort of thing.  There is plenty of jokes to make here with obvious ones like “sweety that dress makes you look fat’  or “Well guys she is wearing white but I can assure you…she’s now pure..whassssuuup!’ I mean lets be honest here there is a lot you should not say at the wedding. “That gift your parents gave us is horrible” ,  “Did you see Stephanie caught be bouquet? Like that’s ever going to happen.. unless she marries Ronald Mc-D am I right?’ Honey “I slept with a bridesmaid”.. ..”Oh Me Too”. You are getting comedy gold here everyone!


But let’s assume real people are not cartoon characters  or roles of Sean William Scott or Katherine Heigl. Let’s assume we are all well spoken people with at least a semi functional brain. That would change everything. If there are things you can not say at your wedding then, you are marrying the wrong person. If your spouse to be or their family would ruin your day based on something you say, things are not  well in your family. If I am ever gonna get married I sure as heck do not want to say I do!  I also do not really want a wedding dress… well maybe a fake on that I can rip off for shock value to reveal a magical girl outfit underneath! I would stare at my partner and go take a pose! While I speech! “I am the pretty guardian of Love and Friendship in a Sailor Suit! Sailor Pinkie! In the name of Love I will marry you! I would like my partner to look shocked and then she’d take out a makeup mirror and yell Pretty Cure, Smile Charge! Ripping of her dress to reveal a magical girl outfit. Then we’d hold hands slide the ring on each others finger and yell ! Pink Thunder! Yellow Thunder! (or whatever her colour would be) Pretty Moon! Married To! And then each others name! Then a fake as a sort of fake beam effect it rains tiny plushies and ribbons, tossed by the bridesmaids onto the isle!  If someone expects me to be normal at my own wedding.. clearly they would not know me!

Oof thats a heavy one. Do I believe in God? The short answer is no, I do not believe in God, Allah, Yahweh , Lord Xenu, Eywa or the Flying Spaghetti monster. Even Todd Howard might be fake. On paper I am an atheist as I do not believe in a divine being. I think subconsciously a lot of people feel that way. If we look at sci-fi for example we often see that sci-fi writes dabbling in the concept of theology project other divine beings upon the galaxy. As if they should have another god. Yet god as a creator should be shared amongst the galaxy. As in.. in Star Trek they encounter “god” several times depending on times. A sentient being judging if I lived my life right is also a super depressing thought. I can only go to heaven or paradise if I put myself last? That’s not how things work! Who is a force to judge over my life while not having lived it? The fact that my live can be invalidated by a single opinion makes no sense to me.  Sure it’s an all knowing opinion yada yada yada except it’s not! I should live the way I want.. not an incorporeal flying buffalo head with a ginger wig and gag goggles or not a guy floating on a cloud going hmmm Soka!  If my friends have some awesome memories of me and will remember me with a smile.. I lived a good life! Because that is what I want to achieve!

The DnD eye guy and pink ninja woman are still there.. they would just cry which moots my point!

I however would not say I believe in nothing… no I believe in order and chaos. Balance, I’d almost call myself a Jedaii (a Force user before the Dark and Light side split). Things happen for a reason and that is not always quantifiable there is a bigger order, a bigger rulebook out there, it’s not a sentient rulebook and most certainly not a DM but it influences us all. Miracles like mothers finding strength beyond their limits to save their children the way everyone’s, the fact that all our upper and under arms have a 1.61803398875 difference ratio , the fact that bees are segregated in that exact same ratio, these are the proof to me that there is an order out there a force keeping everything together. Sometimes it gets a bit lost.. so it’s almost algorithmic like YouTube, a force that can adjust and a force that we can influence. Our thoughts , our postivity…our Karma as it were shape it bring some order in the chaos.. but it is mostly just a set of rules still. Beyond us to understand…again like the YouTube algorithm.

I believe that for me there is no god, but that balance can be controlled to an end. If you are happy and you exert it it’s more likely positive things happen to you. If you are in a negative mindset, bad things are more likely to happen to you. By believing you can do something without a doubt in your mind you can break your limits.. point and case the mother lifting a heavy object to save her baby again. Your belief must be absolute but this works for a god as well. If you believe in god..like believe without a shadow of a doubt god is real to you. If you believe god whispered you the right answer to the test.. then maybe you did. We can explain it with a chemical process in the brain trigger something or whatever ..but who cares. I hear my plushies talk to me.. it’s not something that can be measured but if they go Ganbatte, to cheer my on I still feel inspired.. that inspiration IS real. No matter if I deluded myself into doing it or I actually pick up sound waves from another realm, it doesn’t change the fact that I got inspired..by my plushies. Their motivating me is real. Much more than a concept of god for me ever could!

 Yet God is stronger because he is shared among so many people that it is even easier to pick something up! If your fate wavers others can help you steel your mind..strengthen those thoughts.. No one will tell me.. yes Pinkie your plushies really talk back. Our brains are super powerful, something can be so vividly imagined if we belief in it hard enough. Research shows that if we play a video game and get invested enough our brain treats it virtually the same as going on an actual adventure.. that makes that adventure real right? I think god would be the same .This to me also explains the existence of ghosts. A ghost is not a manifestation of a dead person but the memory of said person by a living person. They belief they remember and they think of them so much that it’s almost tangible to see.. like reading a really good book or an amazing description of food where you can basically taste it. So do I also believe people can see god! So I do believe in him? No .. but he is real… just not to me personally.

To me god is just.. that thing!

By the time I am writing this, which is about a week and a half-ish from when this is going to be posted, I learned the word portmanteau from Irina, I had no idea but it sounds pretty. I guess I have created a few in my blogging history as well. I also learned that this topic generator was less amazing as the one before! This one asked some really basic questions! The religion one I made a post off before but it is so long ago I could revisit it. I tried to find another but the next one and i am generated was “do you believe in the afterlife” and then “do you believe in ghosts”.. clearly the order ..or Karma wanted me to explain my answer on that question so I guess Karma must think I am right ..which makes little sense because then it would be sentient and my entire thing goes to waste but still.The biggest lesson I learned though  is that sometimes a small gesture is good enough to forgive a major thing. 

I saw my friend Lauren this week who has treated me a bit poorly in the past. She treated me a bit how Fumi gets treated by Yasuko in Sweet Blue Flower. She wants to be normal so bad that she kinda “prayed the gay away”  on herself. She stopped our relation because it would not be white picket fences and 1.5 children.After that she hooked up with a male friend of mine, a closet geek, better job also likes to keep up the pretense of being your average guy. I kept the friendship with her alive as I hoped she would one day realise there is more in the world than being mundane. She increasingly drifted towards adhering to the standard and constantly critisised me for finding my own way..usually behind my back though which I had to hear from others. I kept the friendship up though because I really cared for her However fairly recently we had a major fight. Another friend asked us if we could delay a meal for 15 minutes so they could join and she refused stating that “6 o clock is the normal time”  It’s the time she eats at home and if she eats 15 minutes later she’ll have to go to sleep 15 minutes late as well.. cause of her schedule.. normal people don’t eat at 6:15 they eat at 6 so, so should we. A friend who can’t even spare 15 minutes for a friend is not a good friend at all so I timed her out for a bit.. quite mad with everything festering up. 

Yet she came in here with a smile and a bar of chocolate she gifted me and she just said in the most sincere way that she really missed me.  Suddenly everything else did not matter.. and I had missed her as well. I almost hugged her! But Distancing rules so no hugging. Still I felt lighter as a cloud after that, sure we are drifting apart because I am becoming stronger in me being unique and she deeply beliefs she will be happy from being the perfectly average woman and if that makes her happy she should pursue it. I am not sure we can be friends forever, I might become something that holds her back in being as normal as she wants to be.. and I am not going to give up myself so she can be normal..because she would not do so for me either…and that is fine.  For now I know I have a friend, whom I love. The friendship isn’t as easy as others, it’s not perfect but it is something I missed and something I will enjoy sharing with her for as long as we are capable.  Grudges are stupid and as long as you gain something from a friendship and not from a grudge.. even the littlest hand reach can be enough to rekindle a bond. I’ll just hate the anime character instead!

Now that was long enough , I am hope you learned something new about me! Next time I will try to look for a bit more of a whimsical topic generator! Yet this was something on its own accord?!Anyway! I got some chocolate to eat! Sayonoodles! That is a portmanteau  of Sayonara and Toodles!

<In two weeks my Blog will turn 1 so on the Wednesday of my Blogs Birthday..and Pinkie’s Birthday in a sense..I will be holding a Q&A so feel free to leave me some Q&A Questions in the comments or poke me on twitter!> Sayonoodles once more!

Pink with Sunburn from All the Sunshine: The Sunshine Blogger Award

In these times, it’s good to have a little ray of sunshine! Luckily I live on a fictional tropical island and withdrawn in my delusions the world is still a happy place! It has become an even happier place now that I have been nominated again for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I just hope I do not get a sunburn! This is like my fourth or fifth run.. so that is a lot of sun!

I made the logo pinkish! Just so you can recognise it was that time I was defiant!

Like always we begin with the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog so that other people can visit them
  • Answer the 11 questions put to you by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 bloggers of your choosing and provide them with a new set of 11 questions to answer
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts
  • List the rules and display The Sunshine Blogger Award logo within your post or on your blog site

This time I had the big brain not to thank the amazing  blogger who nominated me yet before I state the rules! See now it looks like I am following the rules more! Even though I am gonna break at least one again! Anyway the person who nominated me was no one less than the Otaku Author.. as you might have suspected from the section header title thing.. I really need a better word for those. Lyn has been such an active and amazing member of our community! I actually wanted to tag him for my latest tag The Totally Tomodachi Award.. but I knew Anime and Fan Fiction whom I nominated would tag him if she’d participate and as such I figured he’d be tagged anway!  Why?! Because he is such an amazing support of the blogosphere!

I also said this before but his seasonal review to me are along side Crow the best example of how I think such a review should be! The format they work in best.. done in the best way! So if you are even remotely into seasonal anime.. or if you want to check out what anime you need to watch this season Lyn’s is one of the best places you can be! Though I do doubt this is news to anyone here! Thanks Lyn for nominating me .. here are my answers to your questions and if anyone needs directions to his site! You can click right here!
NB Apparently I missed the post when it first came out it only gave me a tag warning like two weeks ago! Weird Huh! So sorry for doing this so late! I thought i was early!

Q: If you could see one anime again for the first time, what would it be and why?


A: School Live, Explaining why would ruin this wonderful anime experience, If you havend seen Gakkou Gurashi yet..don’t look it up..just watch the first five episodes of this super cute school show! I had.. but rewatching it as is would not have the same impact. This anime had me laughing and crying and feel me sick to my stomach. To relive that moment that Megu-Nee is asked to hold the radio is one of the most powerful moments I ever experienced in anime and to live that again  would be nothing less than amazing. Such a wonderful idea that anime was and definatly amongst my favorites. Surely  one that would be worth seeing for the first time again. I am so certain of this answer that I think this is actually the right answer and someone somewhere might come give me a cash prize!

Q: If you had to teach a class on one thing, what would you teach?


A: I am not a good teacher the workshop I gave at a dutch anime convention showed me that. I am way to wooden and frantic for that. So  I am not sure if it counts as I feel this is more something I’d coach, but I want people to stand by themselves more. You don’t need to strive for that Picket White fence, the 2.1 children (though I do approve of the .1 ) and a pet named Jim-Bob-Johnson. You need to do you! Whatever that means how much it may deviate from the standard, you need to do you. You can’t be happy if you are not yourself.. you’d only make the self imposed lie happy!  I lost it all when I realised I never had been myself.. that I always lied!  When I was broken down so hard that there was nothing left of me but my core I realised this.. and I realised how hard it is to shake of that compulsion so rather than teach I’d coach people to maxmise themselves and limit the social standard. Don’t live a lie as a decent person in the eyes of others, make sure you try to be happy! If being good to others makes you happy all the better! But you matter too!

Q: If you could be any supernatural creature, what would you be and why?


A: A Malkavian Vampire, my health is something that troubles me so I would not say no to immortality! Any form of vampirism  is welcome but my favorite kind would be that of a Malkavian. These vampires are very much known for their insanity but are they truly insane or do they see through the lies we have imposed for ourselves, do they see the world pure? Their mind trick abilities would really suit my persona and walking around as a Haruyuki  Girl while being a Malkavian seems perfectly valid! Odd cosplays and talking with plushies also seems very much in line!

In my opinion Malkavians aren’t really “mad” they just shed off the concept of what we call words. “Male, Female, Black, White, Good, Evil” it all means nothing to a these ethereal creatures of the night! They see you for who you really are. Lies are tangible to them, disguises mean nothing they always see you for who you are. If you woman born in a man’s body they will call you a woman if you literally wear a mask of a more handsome person they will mention the beauty underneath. There is no hiding from their truth it is absolute and I do feel  that would make the world so much more comprehensible. No more false signs of goodwill , no more hate as a cry for attention we all see it as it is..clear. I would not mind living forever if I could see the world like that. Plus being called duckling by sexy club owners is a great boon to that as well.

Q: If you had a time machine, would go back in time or into the future?

A: That depends on whether or not I can make a return trip, if I can alter the timeline or more like Stein’s Gate move through timelines.  If time doesn’t “change” the world I live in but places me in an alternate one I would go nowhere. I would sell it for so much cash that I could buy everything I had ever dreamed off for the rest of my days. Time traveling is always a gamble and If I can’t change anything.. the future improving is but a gamble.. who knows I might end up in a destroyed world. 

I keep using this image I made once!

If time can be altered and my existence could be erased I would not sell it. I do not trust people enough to spare me. If the time machine offers a one way trip  I would sell everything I have.. cash out.. buy something that will increase in value and go to the future.  Maybe I can be cured of my stuff there! There is a lot more anime to watch and games to play. Chances of me finding a girl to love are better in the future than in the past. Plus think about how cheap I get games for my Switch after they became super dated!

If it’s a return trip though I’d go to the past.  The recent past.. I would steal the idea of Pokémon and pitch it to Nintendo taking along my original copy of Pokémon Blue. After that they would see how awesome the game is and I would own the franchise! I’d be the pokémon company.. I would travel back to my time so I could enjoy the benefits I have reaped for myself and still enjoy the newer games in my sort of prime! I’d be able to eat for free in the Pokémon Café  and I’d definitely would be able to obtain a Mew’s Fluffy Marshmallow Drink.

This one I actually found on google when I searched for the drink!

Q: If you could add a word to the dictionary what would you add and what would it mean?

A: Transverbum
noun

  1. A person who has left behind the limits of language and words. They understand that objects , animals and fellow humans do not need to be clustered within standard definitions.  They use words to amplify rather than confine.
  2. An exemplary person of wisdom, someone who understands they can never quantify someone or something completely

verb

To Transveribe, Transveribed, Transveribing

  1. To realise something can not be completely described with words:
    Though the person before me could be described as a middle aged male in a dress, I decided to Transveribe and experience this person rather than trying to describe them.

Q: If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?

A: I am going to assume we are talking about a real skill here, not anime powers.. if it is though.. Mind Magic…

As a real skill to instantly learn i’d doubt between programming which could lead me to build a much more awesome website but honestly, voice acting.  Programming seems useful but not fun  and If I can voice act I could bring this blog onto Youtube. Due to my unfortunate situation my voice is very weak and ugly. By gaining the skills for full voice control and voice acting I could probably find my way around this! I’d instantly learn so it would probably break my limitations so .. yay! It would also seem like something very fun to do and allow me to gain many awesome experiences.

Q: If extraterrestrials landed on earth and offered to take you with them, would you go

A: Yes, while I do have plenty of friends here that I would miss , I feel like I would love an adventure like that. I would have a few conditions though. I would want to bring my consoles and have a way to run them so I at least have some memory of Earth, take a few plushies with me and I’d prefer not to be turned into an energy based creature. Though all these things would be open for debate. I would not mind to live as energy that much if I at least keep my individuality. I would like to be able to choose my colour though.

Earth has recently disappointed me hard, every day I feel like a little bit of me dies seeing the state of the world. Both sides of the spectrum do to be honest. Individuality is being quashed and we just keep labeling ourselves. While I do think we make progress I also think we are losing ourselves along the way! If I would have a way to escape I would.

Q: If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?

A: It depends of your concept of age, if we mean physical age I would love to be forever 21. Looking old enough to get at least some respect and looking young enough to have some fun.. it just gives me so much options to live my eternal live. I would also like be the ideal model and mascotte for the forever 21 stores, who do have a lot of cute and nice clothes.. which I would probably be able to endorse to get cheaply!  You see I AM forever 21. Problem is I don’t really take photo’s really well so I might look akward

If it means  giving up what I have learned though.. and have my mental age regress back too. I’d rather stay the age I was now! I feel like I am wise enough to be happy and young enough to not have to much physical limits. I dont look completely as pretty and cute as I want to.. and some Lolita fashion now would be really wasted on me …so 21 would be better.. but I would not give up my knowledge or my lessons it made me who I am and not even immortality is worth giving that up.

Q: What would the title of your autobiography be?

A:  That time I got to live on forever  in my own pink autobiography!

When in doubt give it a light novel title. It depicts who I am as a person. Geek, Pink and to long winded! It would also prompt people to buy my book I think. By reading this book you could keep me alive. People would love to save that sentiment and be the heroes that keep me alive. Passing this book along, advising it to their friends, with each new person i live on longer.. become part of people’s life as my ideas and persona get captured in this book. Etched on the souls of everyone who reads it and even takes one of my few advice thnings . It would look one of those old leather bound books with a pink cover and some white ornaments and other than that just the title. Yet really faded you might see my eyes and my smile as well!

Q : What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

A: My best piece of advice was actually given to me by myself, I had a non visited dutch anime blog when I saw a girl writing for a game magazine founding her own anime blog and looking for members. I did not not feel good enough but I literally talked to myself. This is something you should do, stop being afraid..it’s okay to reach out to the world. I was so anxious and scared of rejection before so I was afraid she would call me an idiot who should not even try blogging. Instead I got to write for her, we became great friends and my life has became so much better. I found a group that accepted I was a geek , they introduced me to DnD , anime conventions , gaming together. Without them I would not be here today..without them..I’d honestly do not think I’d have the mental fortitude to live until now! Without them I would have never discovered my true self.

Without reaching out, I would be afloat in a sea of nothingness, of denial , hiding who I am trying to pretend to be normal. Without her I would have been unhappy probably even dead given what happend. So my best advice is to reach out to people like you, they won’t eat you and while contact can be scary.. most of the time it takes anxiety away in the long run. Never think you are not worthy do something..it’s advise I do need to take myself again, but for here never think your comment doesn’t matter or that you have nothing to add! I’d love to here your voices! Even if I act a bit wooden and nervous at times! I will do my best I welcome everyone’s thoughts and friendship just like my dear friend accept mine that day 6,5 years ago.

Q: The zombie apocalypse is coming, who are the three anime characters you want on your team?

A: Maple from Bofuri to lead my defence, that basically already is enough for us to be safe but I would pair her up with John Wick, I know he isn’t exactly an anime character but I feel like he has the qualities to be one.. I guess Spike Spiegel as his anime counterpart.. or Maybe Alucard, I’d really prefer John though.. you know he’s kinda breathtaking.  As my melee fighter I would choose the Bludgeon Angel Dokuro. Not only do I think she would do really well in a fight with Excalibogg, she could also say Pipirupirupirupipirupi (google docs corrected that spelling for me) and bring me back to life after I have been horribly eaten.
That way I’d have a tank to defend me.. a long ranged gunner and a melee fighter that is also a healer!   I could be the bard and I am sure we would be right as rain!

I based these nominations on the people interaction with me lately! Be it retweeting, commenting, etc! Why?! Because that way I can easily do all the linky stuff super easy and of course these people are super awesome!

Mari from Starting Life At Zero
whose brave posts really made my personal world less dark.
WinstOlf who shared a lot of my tweets at WinstOlf Portal
Celestial Sparkles from How Anime Stuff works. Who really is active around my website lately which I greatly appreciate!
Mallow or Roki Bloop from Secluded observations, whose names spelling I had to check 27 times despite him retweeting almost everything in support! Such an amazing person!
Summer Foovay from Foovay’s Cauldron whom I have come to consider as my Blogging Bestie, and who finished all tags I gave her..so she needs more!
Ospreyshire or Curtis from Iridium Eye whom while we cleary differ quite a bit has always been there and willing to talk about all sorts of things both high and low brow! I love meeting people like him!
Lina from Tiny Ugly Animal whose name I see pop up more and more on my blog and who can use a challenge to combine with the 30 day of anime challenge! Mwuhahahaha.
That K person or was it C figure? I do not know anymore! Who really came trough with some encouraging words lately which in part reminded me of a lesson I mentioned in this post!
Solarayo from Ace Asunder. They quickly became very active here! I am very happy to see them around! So they deserve a nomination!
Naja from Blerdy Otome whose zeal and passion I always appreciate and who really is a super OWL. Where I had times I doubted if I should continue OWLS Naja’s posts always make me feel that I am in the right place there!
Selina from a Blog with A Little Bit of Everything who may struggle a bit with the anime and geek questions because I am not sure if she is a geek that watches anime. So whenever it says anime she can read Cartoons/tv series and when it says Geek..she can read crafter. Unless of course she knows more about that than I know..it’s up to her!

PS: If you have not been nominated you can earn yourself a nomination by answering this difficult and personal question in the comments! Only if you are worthy you will know:
What is my favorite colour?!








Too Many People Think I am Real Neat: My Final Real Neat Blog Tag

So I have been nominated for the Real Neat Blogger award again! Banzai! This time by the geek girl I based nominated on the random word of Equinox! That is right Joy tagged me right back! At the beginning of the year 2020 I started with a tag week! Right after I finished it the Iridium Eye also nominated me  one of these so guess what I am combining these again! So I think these are my fourth and fifth nominations? I guess I am pretty neat! Yay

Warning: Pinke is a Buzzkill!

I am breaking the chain with this tag however. Normally we display rules , ask new questions and nominate others, however most people I know went around multiple times. Like four or more! I think this is a good place to call it quits! It is a great tag but maybe it should rest for a bit.. at least untill we gain some new bloggers or if I discover some. Untill then I will break the chain. If you really want to do this tag still. Pick any 7 questions of the ones asked to me or check out my old post and nominate yourself!

Joy’s Questions:

(Cick the Good Bot Cocktail to visit Joy)

Question 1: Coffee. Tea. Vodka or pick a legal Inhalant.

I’m Dutch so my options of legal inhalants are a bit wider than that of most people. Yet when I tried to inhale my first attempt of weed I actually set my sigaret on fire,. Using a water bottle I had attempted to make a bong to make it a bit easier on me.. which was a tip I got. You make a hole into a bottle filled with a bit of water let the bottle fill with smoke and inhale trough the bottle cap. However with burning paper setting the little bottle on fire I quickly got covered in melting plastic and those fumes .. though making me lightheaded did not give me much joy. I also burned myself a lot on tea and on Coffee so I guess my answer would have to be Vodka, though I do prefer Hibiki Japanese Whiskey as my absolute favorite, the softer flavor or the swedish Absolut Wodka can be nice from time to time… and their bottles also look neat.

Question 2: Favorite Season: Summer Winter Spring oR Fall

My blog is set on a fictional tropical island! I am pretty sure it that already telegraphs which season is my favorite. I am definitely a summer girl. People wear more colourful outfits, the heat is really nice for my tense body and muscles and I can wander my streets in daylight for a long time without the fear of encountering creeps as the streets are so lively no one really bothers you. Going out swimming with my friends is really nice as well and I love the japanese melon game..though of course I have hurt myself when playing that.

Question 3: Even if Music is not your Thing  what song is currently on top of your playlist

I feel that this question is directed very straight forward towards me. I actually do not have a playlist. So I will show you the last two songs I listened to. Why two? Because one was on my phone and one was on my laptop! I am unsure which one I watched last!

(It makes sense that I watched this)
(This one is a bit weirder though)

Question 4:  You are suddenly named queen of the world. What do you do?

First of all I would not abdict my throne to Joy! I am to selfish for that. Secondly I would check if I am on a ship. If I am on a ship when I become queen of the world I would get the frick off that thing. If I actually become queen of the world I would first quit twitter. That isn’t going to give much positive feedback.  My first act as a queen would be to ensure my wealth, I have lived in moderate poverty for long enough and if I get a lucky break I make sure as Bad Devil Emoji Place, that I am not wasting it.

Then I would continue my quest to make the world a more positive place. I’d put a small fee on posting complaints online. For example if you do not like the new game , you’ll have to pay to burn it to the ground. Being positive will get you credits you can use to redeem cute little prices. Joy can make the program for that! So instead of writing “the new Warcraft sucks” people can rejoice together how good the orginal one was and earn credits to get like a free humble bundle .. or a cute plushie of your queen. Queen Pinkie.. taxing negativity…but  free health insurance!

Question 5: Imagine you have the ability to learn anything what do you learn?

Is the ability finite? If so I would like to learn the ability to learn anything. Omniscience is a great power to have and it would make me wealthy. I could make my own cure, I could use the power to improve the life of so many. I would totally go for it. Again I would not just do it out of the kindness of my heart.. even though I want the world to improve I want myself to improve as well. If we are talking about straight up skills or knowledge though, Japanese would be a serious contender, but I would love to be the only person in the world who understands how the youtube algorithm works even more. I would be close to godly! That is even better than being a queen.

Question 6: What is your favorite or least favorite moment in life thus far?

Well my least favorite moment would definitely be when I . kinda , died?  My heart has issues at times and this one time it got really bad while shopping. I was gone for a bit but luckily I returned. I only vaguely remember the whole incident but at one point there was this awareness that hit me… which was very humbling and frightening. In a way it felt almost like drowning. I felt like a current was dragging me away when I tried fighting it.

My favorite moment in life is a harder one but I guess I would have to say my first big anime convention that I visited in a non blogger capacity. Before than I actually got an internship (unpaid)  to blog and I visited a few conventions to promote japanese credit cards. The first convention I went to in full free time we rented his beautifull AirBnB and it was just an amazing time balancing the con with a few parties at the house and just having a swell time with friends I shared a passion with. Which was by then still a new experience for me.. I could be me and I had trouble to be that before.

Question 7 Billionaire Yusaku Maezawa invites you as one of the observers to ride on his 2023 chartered SpaceX Starship trip around the moon (seemingly actually going to happen) and it’s it’s basically a once in a lifetime opportunity… do you go? Why/why not?

)

I would probably pass. First of all even though I am a Blogger, I would not consider myself an artist. So I would have to be that special single woman he can take to share the experience with. While I am not above flirting with a billionaire to be better off maybe, he is to young. I would ruin to much of his life with false pretences. Like for a year or five .. I can live with that.. but more? That is a no go. I do not like children and he has three. Plus he is a he.. so nothing could ever happen.

As for the whole moon experience.. meh.. Space travel seems uncomfy and I can experience zero gravity here. I see the moon pass by often enough so passing by the moon kinda seems redundant.  I would not appreciate it as much as other people would. Space is empty, the moon is just a rock, we all glorify it on mass but that´s a bit medieval thinking in my opinion.If I want to make a trip around a dead rock I might just visit Wales at least there is food there.

Bonus Question : One dark night, in the middle of the day, two dead boys got up to play. Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other. Two deaf policeman heard the noise, came to rescue two dead boys… and if you don’t believe my lie, it’s true… ask the blind man he saw it too! So… where were you and what is your spurious alibi?

Let’s see .. since it is a dark night for me and in the middle of the day the two boy got up I most certainly was in another time zone! Which already is an alibi itself. Since deaf people cant hear clearly deaf is an Acronym for Dutch Electronic Arts Festival, so I assume they were guards.Since I am Dutch I must have been traveling or I would be in the same time zone. Since it’s dark for me and mid day for them it would have to be at least 8 hours later.. Japan is in that time zone so I am most likely there. Later would put me in New Guinea  and I have no interest in that.To be able to shoot each other after drawing the swords the boys must have been using the combination lefaucheux pinfire revolver and sword.

If being dead did not give it away yet, being able to face each other while back to back must mean the boys are zombies. Being able to spin their head on their undead necks. The gun sword is a french creation meaning the zombies most likely came from there! Clearly the blind man used to be able to see..but after this happend he lost his sight. Making me believe the zombie boys attacked his eyes. Therefore he is now blind..but still saw.. indicating the zombies are hostile to humans. So where was I? In Japan fleeing this zombie apocalypse thing that is going on my my home region.

(Zombies that are CHILDEREN? EEw hard pass!)

Irridium Eye’s Questions:

Click the Iridium Eye (It’s silver not gold) cocktail to visit their blog!

Question 1: What is one obscure movie or anime that you know of that you wish was more popular. 

None really. I think obscurity usually stems from being catered to a more defined demographic.  While what is popular should be more available to everyone. Either the message of those movies and anime would have to be generalised or it would not gain popularity for the right reasons.  Wolf Children the anime movie may deserve more love.. but meh, I do not think the taste of others is needed to validate my tastes and most gems I like for being that one of thing. I do not need a sequel so I do not mind being alone in my love.

Question 2: The Iridium Eye is very vocal about film plagiarism issues. Like Inception Stealing from Paprika or the Lion King plagiarizing Kimba the White Lion. What Original film, tv series or anime would you not want to see ripped off at all costs.

While I very much get this stance I do not have an issue with it as much Inception is generally not made for the crowd that watches Paprika most of us have only known about Kimba because of the Lion King. So I do think  there is a risk in never being ripped of at all. I like Kimba better and Paprika wins over inception for me.. but most likely I would not have watched them without being aware.

Is it okay to not be original? No .. but the truth will get out and people can see what truly inspired you. We can see Inception as a lesser Paprika.. or a Lion King as the shameless rip off. That is punishment enough. plagiarism helped me discover gems and unmask fakers. My tastes are pretty generic.. bright colours, magical girls, CGDCT. In this day and age I see so much things being used in various forms I am not sure where the original comes from. Mostly when Hollywood does an orginal idea now it is competly overhyped and kinda feels snobbish to me.

Question 3: Who is the most underrated composer in your opinion

Hiroshige Tonomura plain and simple! Why? Because he made this! This man made my childhood!

Question 4: Which Country would you like to see some cinema from that is not your homeland

Well after the Oscars Korea might be a good pick. I am not a big fan of dutch cinema. It’s very explicit, lots of naked and lots of focus on sexual relationships in every genre of movie. We are the horney teenagers of the movie industrie.Famous foreign flicks are often too gimmicky for me though. To heavy handed. Famous movies that aren’t english are oftenly all sucm metaphorical mazes or idealogical sinkholes I feel like I am in bible school. So perhaps just a bollywood movie! Don’t get me wrong those art pieces are nice to watch from time to time and can truly touch me, but they will never be my favorite films. So maybe something from India! That will be a good time!

Question 5: What is your biggest issue with the current Hollywood scene.

The negativity surrounding it. Like with games, the movie crowd is more focussed on seeing what sticks. We all know how bad Cats is, we all had major tantrums over Star Wars and sonics looks. We are being treated like we own the films and have a say in what should and should not be. These movie makers have their visions but we need avengers style humor in everything, we need representation for everyone. We need to see ideas rehashed we like. Movies should be written by it’s makes not by their test audience. If something is bad we do not need cinemasins to point it out or Nostalgia Critic to try and be funny about it. Let’s focus on what is good rather than rewriting Hollywood with hate.

The Razzie goes to us! Demanding that we get what we want! No creativity!

Question 6: Finish this Idea (Name of the progatnis here) would be the most interesting hero ever if…?

Ash Ketchum would have been the most interesting hero if he ever grew up.  I really had trouble with this question. Which hero could I change for the better in the eyes of everyone. While I have written several what if’s in my past I do not think I could raise a hero to new heights. Luke Skywalker meant so much to many people because of how he was written, to improve on him feels pretentious. So I am sticking to a development we basically all could get behind. To those who grew up with Gen 1 Pokémon Ash was kind of our peer.  Our age give or take and if he had aged alongside us during this journey.. at our rate it might have made the pokemon anime something truely unique. Ash winning the Aolan league would have been much bigger.

(If only)

Question 7: What none actor should try voice acting what role should they take.

These days it’s kind of hard to find a celebrity that doesn’t  do it all. Do we count youtubers who voice on their channels? I would for that reason exclude all those epic trailer voice peoples. Lately I  have been watching videos of bassist Davie504. The way he says EPIC, SLAP, Call the Police, you have small Pee Pee.. makes me think he would be good in a funny fighting game as the “fight” “Finish him” kind of guy.

I could also see  Jaiden from Jaiden Animations do some snarky girl main character of a cartoon like Angela Anaconda. Her videos have that quality to it and it would be fun to see her play something that is really not her.

Now I apologise for being the buzzkill that ends the tag here but again if you really wish to do these tag still, just go ahead! Pick any questions from this list or from my old post which you can find here!

A Sunny Sunday: The Sunshine Blogger Award

It’s finally time! About a week ago we we nominated for the Sunshine Blogger award. With lots of social stuff I had to attend as some really sore muscles throughout the entire week it took me seven whole days to get to this.  Once more I would like to thank A Girl and her Anime for the nomination. I have handed the questions to reporter Pinkie Cherryblossom who will hold a short interview.

Thank you Pinkie! Amelia  from A Girl And Her Anime came up with these questions so mad props to her! Would you kindly visit her blog? Since I said “Would you Kindly?”  it means you all are going to have to do it! She writes some pretty insightful stuff as well as some fun reviews. She seems like an amazing person that deserves more followers. Then again she might be an alien mastermind coming to earth trying to charm way to an otaku army, you never know. Yet what are the chances that two of those happen to have the exact same idea and even follow each others blog. So nevermind that I am sure she is awesome! Moving on!

The Sunshine Blogger award has some rules which I will post near the end. I’d say most of you by now have seen these post before now anyway so I am sure you know. Let’s get down to these questions Pinkie if you please take a seat I will ask us the questions Amelia came up with. Even though she tagged 11 bloggers the first question she came up with seems to be made JUST for us! So thank you for that one!
Question number one is…..!

If you were a Pokémon, what sort of Pokémon would you be?

I wish I could say I was a Sylveon..It’s all about love and that is really big for me, and with a lot of pink and cute ribbons it is totally my style. It’s a bit of my spirit animal. However my friends always call me Pancham, because it’s a Panda. It has become a meme on how pure my mind is, I never understand sex jokes, I never get inuendo and I am honestly not all that interested in the physical stuff to a point of not at all. To my friends amusement I always seem to miss any lewd moments as well. If we are watching an anime, the moment I get up there will be a risque scene, when I get back the scene is over.  When two friends are making out.. I get distracted by a butterfly passing outside and completely miss it. One night a friend was joking and asking ‘What if Pinkie does see something lewd? Will the universe explode?’ He wanted to put something on his tv but at that exact moment the batteries of his remote control were drained. That’s when I became the ultimate Panda. So my Pokémon would have to reflect that as well. I really do feel like I would be a fairy-type though so lets say I am a regional form Pancham that is a Fairy-Psychic type (A nice counter part to the dark-fightingy type, pangoro grows into)  also to reflect I really like Kawaii stuff but also to play mind games with people.I would have pixilate as an ability.. because I’d love to make normal stuff cute and I could still show my love throughout the move Return that way!
That is a move that deals more damage if the Pokémon loves it’s trainer a lot. If I like you well enough I will fight super hard for you, so it seems like a great fit.

Do  you play video games? If so what have you been playing recently?

Well will not cheese this one and say I have been playing Pokémon Let’s Go, Pokémon Snap and Pokémon Ultra Sun… I do but those are all like stuff I normally talk in this blog about. What I have been playing most recently is Ducktales Remastered. Ducks are some of my favorite animals. When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? She sighed and just put on Disney. Ducktales was one of the first TV shows I ever loved. To this day I have fuzzy memories and I ADORE the 2017 remake. Because I was a total dojikko (a clumsy girl)   when I was young, because it would turn out there was something wrong with, I never really liked playing outside. It would always end up with me falling from or into something. If that didn’t happen I would get stuck somewhere. It was stressful. So my parents decided to buy me a NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) with Super Mario Bros 3 and Ducktales as starting games. Mario 3 was nice, but I was in love with Ducktales. It was Shovel Knight, 25 years before Shovel Knight and it was the game that turned me into a gamer. Like a lot of games it has gotten a remake that I played with a friend once (at their place) but now it is being pulled of the market and going away for ever. So shout out to Kurtis for gifting me this one!

What is your favorite colour: Any particular reason why it’s your favorite?

Pinkie’s favorite colour is pink! I bet you didn’t see that one coming if you have ever been to my blog. Pink has a deeper meaning to me though then just being cute. I never grew up very girly, due to my faulty build the other girls and I grew apart, as my lack of grace resulted in me not really liking the stuff they liked and feeling happier with a controller in my hand. I could exert an amount of control over my actions in games I lacked in real life.  So I became a bit of a tomboy/loner/geek with teenage mutant ninja turtle shirts and the likes in an attempt to at least belong somewhere.. like being that girl that is one of the guys but who was never accepted as one either and a lot of bullying ensued .. mostly because I moved so weirdly . Itt took me many years to find that out and just around the time I was finally becoming me around when I was 22. I started to experiment with pink clothes. Around that same time I got very sick, my muscle issues seemed to tax my heart now as well. We didn’t exactly know what was wrong so I had to visit a lot of hospitals At the time I had a pink pyjama and pink bathrobes . In the hospital it’s not that hard for you to feel like just a number or patient X. I wasn’t at one ward each time I was at different places so it even felt more like that. It very much looked like there wasn’t going to be a future for me at all at that time which resulted in a bit of an existential crisis that I would die and no one would remember, that I would be a person that is truly gone straight away. Yet I got a bit better, a medicine was found that helped me greatly.  Doctors a lot more positive began to refer to me by my super pink look, calling me Pinkie. I developed a persona alongside it as a coping mechanism which turned out to be much closer to my actual core self.. but not as afraid and held back by the bullying i received in the past. It represented my repressed self, my true self and ever since that time I connect pink to the strength to be me the freedom to be me.

What is your favorite thing to do during summer?

Sorry about the long answers before this one! Amelia sure picked her questions neatly! There was a lot of stuff to tell.  My favorite thing to do during summer is stroll around on a boulevard on the late evening, the sun warming my muscles, the feeling of a vaction you can have while strolling through a place where everything seems to move just a tiny bit slower than it normally would, seeing that bit of heat distortion way ahead towards your destination. Just by the look of the sky being able to tell that tomorrow is going to be another great day The freedom and the level of comfort are great. Shall I go out with some friends for a drink? Shall I buy that cute purse in the window tomorrow. I love all those things , but that toasty summer stroll where everything is still possible is my favorite moment.

Ghibli is obviously very popular , but what movie do you think is the most overrated?

Honestly? I think all of them are at least a bit overrated. I do like them quite a lot but I do find some of them a bit overly artsy as well. They might impress me more than your average film, they might have the stronger messages behind them but I for one prefer to be entertained .
The Wind rises i saw in a premiere for example. With messages what we should not let technology pass us by and creative choices like having all engines be made by voice effects to make them sound more warm and personal is great. I sit there and nod my head going! Good Show that is impressive. When I watch the second Gurren Laggan movie I am not thinking , wow that’s impressive or  that is such a clever allegory. No when I watch that movie I am shouting at my screen. “WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE” , extending my hand to help Giga drill break and in their first movie, when Simon and Kamina Gatai for the first time I am like kicking the floor in a giddy excitement. Ghibli can make me laugh, and it can make me cry but it can never take me on a real roller coaster of emotions. They feel like the Louvre museum of anime. Mad respect to the Louvre.. but when I am in Paris I much rather go to Disneyland

If you could travel back in time, when you travel and why?

Tokyo 1991. The Gameboy has just come out and Satoshi Tajiri will soon talk to Miyamoto about developing the link cable, during which they would talk about transferring insects. A concept that would  lead to development of Pokémon. I plan to go there and steal their pitch! So I can own the Pokémon IP, of course I would still entrust Game Freak with the idea after, but think of all the money I would have and I would be the princess or queen even of Pokémon. Sure I could help the world by altering a historic event but that’s boring!  I am going to be honest, I’d rather be rich than a hero, I deserve some good times as well.

As a the new leader of a country, what is the first law you introduce?

This is a hard one, I could spout some idealistic nonsense that is never going to happen anyway like ‘everyone’ is forced to love each other but this is not enforceable and it would  kill individuality if it works. No I would instead create the ‘my opinion’ law . It’s a harsh one as it would forbid any form of social influencing media from phrasing their opinions as facts.
‘People who can’t play Tracer should be shot … would be an illegal titel for your post. ‘I think people who can’t play Tracer should be shot’  would be fine. A lot of negativity in this world comes from big youtubers saying something is bad, convincing people their is only one correct opinion, if creates conflict and division. When we forbid people to claim their opinions as factual and make them say that this is only their opinion, it is much harsher to cause harm to anyone.  Don’t believe in a non-binary gender system? Saying “there is only males and females is hurtful’ hearing ‘In my opinion gender IS binary’ might be disappointing but is never hurtful. Both offender and offensee can realise there are two sides to this coin. We can learn to respect each others opinions because they are forced to be spoken out as such. A single opinion never has the power to change you, you can however choose to heed the opinion. So gone with the Count Dankula’s in this world and goodbye to “you are stupid and should die”  In my nation you’ll read “I think you are stupid and should die instead’ It already stings less, and over time maybe we can fix this weird ass Political Correct purgatory we are creating for ourselves.  and actually start being ourselves rather than our newly invented emblem or classical stereotype. If we know our enemies are just giving their opinon, we can hug them better.

Have you been reading anything lately?

I’ve been reading the Pokémon Adventures Manga as well as a bit of Is This A Zombie?It’s been a while since I read an actual good book. I’ve been trying to read Dan Brown’s origin but I don’t have a lot of positive things to say about that one. I’ve also been reading the D&D 5th GM manual and player handbook a lot! Those are technically books.  Finally I have been reading all of your blogs, they are all amazing, yours is even a little better than that of my others readers but that is a secret between us two okay?

Tell us about your favourite film

I actually have two. My regular answer to what my favorite movie is would be.  Catch me if you can.   I love the story of the young con-artist pretending to be a pilot, lawyer and doctor. Dicaprio portrays Frank Abagnale perfectly.  Tom Hanks playing the FBI agent who is after him is done exceptionally well, I root for both sides I watch the movie. It’s such a compelling story with a great soundtrack, stellar acting and basically anything a girl can wish for in a good movie. It’s definitely my favorite good movie and if you haven’t seen it yet you should definitely check it out.

My REAL favourite movie however would have to be Tommy Wisseau’s the room. The BEST worst movie ever. It is such a cringeworthy watch each time, yet it has become so much more than just a film to me.  I crossplayed Wiseau, I met people because of the movie, I went to special theaters, I carry plastic spoons when I see it. Whenever I see a small dog I go “hi doggie” even if I actually speak dutch. It gave us jokes inside our group of friends. We are even considering organising “tommy con’ It will not be an actual convention, it will just be fans of the movie gathering in a park.. dressed in a suit, tossing american footballs around. For those who don’t know what the Room is? The Room tells the story about Johny, and all American man (with a bit of an accent) who gets cheated on by his wife when his promotion falls trough. There are some other plothooks like a mother in law with cancer, which is never addressed, a  young boys issues with drugs, which isn’t really addressed or rounded out, characters appearing and vanishing from thin air… and random people who don’t live there having sex on the couch. There is a lot of spoons hidden in the movie as well as well as tossing the football. it is atrociously bad and almost unwatchable and I love every minute of my own.. and the friends I watch it with suffering.  James Franco made a movie about how bad this movie is called the disaster artist and that one was just as great.  All the stories surrounding The Room, make it something greater.

Put your music on shuffle. What are the first three songs to play?

My father was a musician and he always tried to force his music onto me, I never rebelled much as a teen, but I kinda rebelled to music in general,. Now I mostly listen weeaboo music or geek music. I never play any pop music or anything.  So I will just share the last tracks I listened trough videos.   

And one bonus song! Because it started playing right after and I felt bad in leaving this one off!

If you were to suggest an anime I had to watch, what would you recommend?

Way too known to be a proper suggestion would be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, it’s my favorite anime ever by a landslide. A giga drill breaker caused landslide, that one is just so friggin amazing I have to actively try not to soil myself in excitement. However because it’s that amazing I think everyone in the world already knows about it and follow the Gospel of Kamina and Simon so the thing I am gonna recommend is…..
Selector Infected Wixoss.

A slightly more obscure 2014 anime about cute girls battling with cards to get their wish granted.  If you win 3 card battles you get your wish granted, if you lose 3 you’ll lose your wish forever as well as the little buddy that dwells inside your main card.Yet no one knows the true and dark secrets about this card battle game. The anime starts out incredibly slow but once the story starts rolling you have an extremely dark story that brings Madoka and Yu-gi-oh together  in a grim tale. Do not expect a happily ever after when you start this one because this goes in the shadows, this isn’t cute girls playing a children’s card game… this is some serious doodoo. The characters are nice and though nothing to special they work and you pelted with a million of them . If you like Madoka, and if you like to a slower moving story filled with intrigue and mystery, with the pay off mostly in the later half of the series, then this is a series  you should watch.
