We are about half way through Steampunk month, with lots of fun things happening to me on a personal level as well! There were quite a few awesome blogs out there as well so let’s just give in! And of course I hope you all had a great week my dear Island Guests.
With only one downer of an episode the week of anime was very , very good! My least favourite view was Slime.. and had the next episode been as poor as the last two ones, I would have dropped the series right before the end.. but luckily in next weeks review we can expect quite a bit more positivity! My favourite watch this week was Cowboy Bebop, while there were two other star fruits this week.. one was questionable… but the evaluation will remain standing. The other was briljant as well so all in all! It was amazing! Want to find out which ones? Check out what I watched!
Digimon Adventure- Episode 14 – The King of Insects Clash
Samurai Flamenco – Episode 21 – Teaching Love
That Time I reincarnated as a Slime – Episode 20 – Yuuki Kagurazaka
Revolutionary Girl Utena – Episode 2- From Whom The Rose Smiles
Hikaru no Go – Episode 25 – Fear and Impatience
Natsume Book of Friends – Episode 5 – Heart Coloured Ticket
Cowboy Bebop – Episode 5 – Ballad of Fallen Angels
Pinkie’s Other Posts
Some of the staff are working on their projects for Steampunk month, others have become entangled in a web of responsibilities and of course amazing games to play! So I mostly helmed paradise by myself again this week. So what was I up too?!
Well I created my Own Pokémon Steampunk game!
Then I played a Blimp that went into space!
I watched a bad movie but really really enjoyed it!
And in a Blog Tag I told how my Paradise works and asked Steampunk questions
Camp Coconut Updates
The trip to Amsterdam prevented me from taking a proper look at Patreon instead of Kofi, so no progress has been made there. The Coconuts have been rather quiet and are probably hibernating for a bit until after christmas which is fine and perfectly understandable! I would also want to have a little spending money left for Christmas gifts! For those wanting to answer the question, do Coconuts wear masks?! No! They don’t have lungs so they can’t catch the disease! Coconuts for those who don’t know are my Kofi supporters.. they get a pokémonish style coconut that has a bit of lore.. and each time they donate .. a little event happens to them in these new updates! This is a new feature though so some Coconuts might not even know yet!
Posts that Impressed Pinkie
It is time to talk about the works of others again! I try to find some inspiring blogs but also good gossip.. Did you know this blogger returned from absence! Did you know this blogger is doing a big project?! Community stuff as well! Of course if you have a post that you really want me to recommend in this post feel free to reach out! After all I want to stimulate community interaction!
Celestial Sparkles Returned to blogging and I like her style a lot! I think starting today.. she will make 12 little posts of anime up untill the 25th.. I might be wrong about the starting date! Yet it is something to really look forward to! After all she might be my favourite pony!
Mari is doing incredible essays on some of the story arcs surrounding characters in Fire Emblems Three houses! While I try to just glance over them and avoid spoilers I can not be helped and I am drawn in by her choice of characters. This post was no exception! There is some really amazing art in this post for you to see as well so if you are a fire emblem fan click on the picture!
Fred is always a great blogger! Yet when Fred talks about rockets and spaceship things, his posts become quite magical! I normally imagine a wise sage version of Grey Fullbuster when he talks. .but when he talks about rockets.. I imagine a young boy, sitting in front of those 60’s style pastel tinted tube tv’s! Eating his cereal naked, while stars of joy twinkle in his eyes! I imagine not much would have changed! Just his size! And no I don’t mean this disrespectful or anything! I admire that being himself trait.. so I love how I see a “pure” part of him in these posts . He also knows a lot about that stuff so to offer you something that is not just gaming and anime related.. have some tech!
I am not a big manga reader, usually I browse Alyssa’s website mostly for the cute cover art and to read her stories about new ideas and I smile.. but sometimes a cover pops up and I think I need to read that.. usually if covers are 30% pink it will do that! After reading her review I am more eager to actually read this one! Okay.. it technically was posted on Sunday last week.. but I write these ahead of time so Sunday posts always get missed!
Pinkie Away From Keyboard
So real life has been a bit slow for me, except of course for my trip to Amsterdam. So yeah the rest of the week I have been mostly doing me and resting, some cleaning, putting up some christmas decorations, self reflection and a lot of long showers .. and plenty of migraines. So that also means I did not get a lot of blogging done unfortunately. I experienced a lack of inspiration for the really creative stuff, so I have mostly been trying to pick up some games again. I started to play Temtem, a bit again.. though only very minimally. I dropped Dishonored as I just could not get into the game and currently I am trying a really hard Steampunk RPG game..I can’t leave the starting area yet.
Now for Amsterdam, I will spare you all the med talk! A friend of mine tagged along and we booked a hotel close to the hospital. A test run for later.. if I need to go there more and have early appointments.. I am trying out some cheaper hotels near and this one was pretty nice. It had an all you can eat restaurant, with a cocktail bar (though with restricted serving times due to covid banning alcohol after 8 pm). We ate at the restaurant for the first time in like 4 months or so .. so it was nice to experience and be spoiled a bit. However the hotel was a bit understaffed so there was a lot of stress on the kitchen! That showed on the plate. The food was nice.. but there was so much delay.. and some things were cold or out of stock and so on! Shame.. .but all in all it was a nice experience still! Breakfast was included as well and was quite cute! Normally you have a breakfast buffet.. but it isn’t covid proof so now we just had lots of stuff brought to our table and more of us being spoiled! I really liked that!
So the day afterwards we went to do some fun stuff in Amsterdam.. to combine the bitter and the sweet a bit. Since my friend is a huge horror buff we went to the Dungeon of Amsterdam. It is a museum based on the formula of the tower of London.. it tells the horror stories of Amsterdam’s history.. like seeing ghost stories from our trading seafaring days, visiting bars from Amsterdam’s victorian age, where you get tricked into servitude. Or stand on trial for interactive witch courts. It’s an interactive theater museum experience and that it is pretty darn fun! Then my friend wanted to go for a bit of shopping, so we visited a few pop culture stores. I almost got a Hello Kitty Face Mask.. but I imagined it would be really annoying to have that bow in front of my eye! So I then went to a Manga store and got really tempted to buy some Love Live Mystery bag.. but none had big items so I passed! I don’t need 23 buttons! On my way I got in a small fight , (not really physical) with a hooker! I stopped in front of her window to look at my map and she got out and began pushing me aside and I panicked and slapped her hand away. She then began being verbal.. and I already said sorry for blocking her from sight.. when she got needlessly verbal I got annoyed and poked back! That would have looked cuter with a Hello Kitty mask!
So Steampunk week is a bit shaky for the next week. I tried to make a Pokémon post but I did not have a strong idea, so I am more than likely skipping the Pokémon post this week! Luckily I have all the anime content to fall back on! I might post it later that week! But expect my non anime content to be a bit more near the end of next week! Two projects fell through for me so I need a bit more content experience! I wanted to do Dishonor but the game doesn’t do anything for me! I don’t find it bad.. I am kind of entertained by it.. but not really. I just have nothing to tell about it or no drive to really play it! That will not result in an interesting bit of text! So let’s hope I can make a new character in Arcanum I can progress with!
And that’s the week! Do you have any great plans for next week?! How was THIS week?! Let me know in the comments! Oh and have a great next week of course… Now for the most important question to my readers! If you ever find yourself lost in Amsterdam and bullied by a lady of the oldest profession in the world?! How would you respond! Let me know! I was about to kick her in the heels and run if she got more viscous.. but I would probably be billed!
