Sunrise

Well, I'm off, there's no map for this lit up path
But there'll always be ups and down
I've got a hunch that I'll be free

I feel like you're always smiling by my side

They're waiting for us, at the end of the waves
At the end of the clouds
I'm looking for the prisms of sunlight
That slip through the gaps in my fingers

The soft, tender feeling you gave me
It's telepathy, it's magic
I feel it even without words

Wrapped in a warm dream, a wind blowing in my heart

It's an endlessly long way to the end of that wind
The end of the stars
I felt like I thought I could hear you
Saying 'flare up, run!' somewhere

They're waiting for us, at the end of the waves
At the end of the clouds
I'm looking for the prisms of sunlight
That slip through the gaps in my fingers

It's an endlessly long way to the end of that wind
The end of the stars
I felt like I thought I could hear you
Saying 'flare up, run!' somewhere

The waves are blue, the clouds are high
The wind is fragrant, the stars shine
My voice echoes way off into the distance
I smile, you do too

Good night, 2011!

What's Yet to Come

So 2012 looks promising... Meh, that's what I said about this year and 2009, wasn't it? I'm not even gonna bother to make a list of what's coming because it's probably better that way. Let's just hope for good things to come our way and leave it at that.

Merry Christmas!

As I said earlier, I would get to showing the three Magi cards of my creation, this time as they would appear in OCG/TCG form. And as you can see, like the Aesir and the Sacred Beasts before them, they have been toned down quite a bit. They have different Attributes and are all Spellcaster-Type monsters. You can see my previous post on them for comparison if you'd like. Again, the deviantART user ryben-d36hnch gets all the credit for the images I used for the cards, as I found them on the user's account. Also, I strongly believe this should not be considered sacrilegious because the wise men in the Christmas story are part of what Christmas is all about - the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. Amen.

Merry Christmas!

I So Don't Get This. Enough, People.

Look here, I know well enough that love and flings are present in just about any form of fiction one way or another, maybe not, but as far as the Disney Junior show Little Einsteins goes, I have to say these crazy Internet users have gone too far. Current entries on Wikipedia pages are now claiming that the characters Leo and June have crushes on each other and I'm afraid I'm not convinced. Similar claims also mention Leo is the leader of the Little Einsteins. Okay, sure. That's not a bad thing to list if Leo has shown leadership skills. I wouldn't know because I haven't seen the show myself, just various clips here and there. But I seriously think Wikipedia editors should draw the line at the prospect of Leo and June having crushes on each other. Little Einsteins is not that kind of show at all, so if there's any flings, they should be saved for a full Disney film. Now, unless any of you users out there can prove me wrong on this, which I seriously doubt you will, as far as I'm concerned I'm dissing this would-be "couple". Good day.

The Creator of All

Recognize this card? The Creator of Light is the one who defeated Zorc the Dark One in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series after King Atem remembered his name at long last. When the three Egyptian Gods merge together, they form this, The Creator God of Light, Horakhty. And now, at long last, there exists an actual card of this literally unstoppable force in the OCG. And like the Egyptian God reprints, it is autographed by Kazuki Takahashi himself. What makes this card unstoppable is that not only is it an Instant Win card, causing the player who Summoned it to win a Duel, but its Summon cannot be negated, so there's no way to stop this Instant Win condition! However, it requires that all three of the Egyptian Gods to be sacrificed in order to be Special Summoned from the hand (and no cheap tricks because they have to be the original printed names of the gods), so it could easily be considered the hardest monster to summon in the history of the card game. But there may be a few tricks that can help, such as swarming the field in order to make summoning the Egyptian Gods a little easier. Still, with this card making a release, it's gotta be a major breakthrough at most. And the best part is, it still looks to be a legit card!

Tough Love

It's hard to be an older sibling when the little one gets all the attention. And that's exactly what happens to poor Cera in The Land Before Time XII: Great Day of the Flyers. It seems her family problems span over the course of two movies, so she must have been suffering. First, Tria came into the picture, and then she and Topps, Cera's father, became mates and had an egg. When Tricia finally hatches, she gets much of her family's love and attention, as Cera had worried. There was a similar back story in a Simpsons episode in which a flashback scene shows Bart getting jealous of all the attention his newborn sister Lisa gets from his parents. But one thing changes all that for both instances. Both Tricia and Lisa speak their first words, which happen to be the names of their older siblings. Lisa toddled into Bart's room and says her first word, "Bart", right to him. After Cera saves Tricia from falling to her almost certain death, she says her first word, "Cera" (pronounced as "Cewa" because she's still a baby) to her, much to the excitement of Cera and her parents. Nothing special in this post here. Just a little something to share some family love and point some interesting similarities. Actually, I haven't found a synopsis on The Land Before Time XII: Great Day of the Flyers anywhere on the Internet yet, not even Wikipedia. What gives? Will I have to see that movie myself?

Animatic

videoMy own hard work pays off yet again, this time with an animatic, my first one! It features my trademark original character, Bow the Cat, interacting with a door, as the school assignment stated that a student's original character must interact with a door during this animation sequence. The music used in this video is not mine, so I'm bringing along a disclaimer with this post. All credit and copyrights regarding the music goes to respective owners, creators, and composers. Let's see if you users can guess the two music tracks I picked out for this video.

One-Sided Love, One-Sided Episode

Just as I expected, nothing special between Phineas and Isabella at all, even in the second Christmas episode. What did you fans expect anyway? Like I said, the movie had its chance and blew it completely, so there's no hope at all. Maybe Isabella should give up, like she could have in "Summer Belongs To You". There's no way. But that's not the point of this post, so let me get on topic before I lose track of things. The real deal is that the episode is somehow already up on iTunes as a single episode instead of a paired episode! Now that is something unique and has never been done before on the Phineas and Ferb selection on iTunes. But again, I'm still wondering here... what's going on?

We Three Kings of Yu-Gi-Oh! Are

In light of the holiday season for 2011, I have decided to introduce from my creations on Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker (although YuGiCo is good for making Xyz cards, Card Maker is still good for a few things such as custom sub-types), three new equivalents of the Egyptian Gods, the Sacred Beasts, and the Aesir - behold, the three Magi (Wise Gods)! I should not think this is inappropriate nor sacrilegious for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I didn't come up with these images, some user from deviantART known as ryben-d36hnch did. So the images belong to that user, not me. Secondly, if the game starts naming cards for sources outside of Japan, such as Norse mythology, then anyone could have come up with this. Also, you might notice that the cards I made up are in fact the Epoch monsters I mentioned back at the beginning of the year. As I said before, Epoch Monsters are formed by sending Epoch Material Monsters from either the field or hand to the Graveyard, so they are easier to summon than Synchro and Xyz monsters. However, to maintain tradition of sacrificing three monsters from the field to summon a God card, the three Magi can only be Epoch Summoned using monsters on the field, not the hand. And these are just cards as they would appear in an anime series, seeing as the Aesir did not keep their Divine-Beast-Type nor their Divine attribute when they became trading cards. The same will go for the Magi, but I'll get to that some other time.

A Third Phineas and Ferb Christmas

Well, fans, this is it. Today's the day that the second Phineas and Ferb Christmas special airs on television. It may be only 15 minutes in length as opposed to the original 45-minute special, but we're still looking at some good stuff as usual. And remember, please don't expect anything regarding Isabella and Phineas, even during her song. I certainly won't. Speaking of, what's with those dance scenes from "Ferb Latin"? Why are users on about that pairing just because they were seen dancing during that episode and the "Ferb Latin" song? Not only does it really not compare to them dancing in "Summer Belongs To You", but it's nothing new, so it's nothing special really. Anyways, enjoy the upcoming special!
