Spooky Halloween Stories: Let’s Write A Story While Giving Blood!


(first of three spooky Halloween stories I have written that I will publish on here.)

Let’s Write a Story While Donating Blood!

I gave blood on October 31, 2012, and because I was giving double red blood cells, it took quite a while, so I wrote this story on my leg while a pint of blood was taken away from my body and I became increasingly light-headed.

This is a picture of what the original transcription looked like:

 

Jason’s chainsaw entered Frank killing him instantly. But what about the blood itself? The body? What were the reactions within Frank himself?

***

Osmosis Jones was having a nice day. He was about to go to the liver and celebrate Frank’s birthday with the FPD, but he stopped over by his apartment to go grab some enzymes. A few chemical reactions couldn’t hurt anything, he thought….

Then he saw Drix’s photo.

“Oh Drix!” he cried. Drix had been lost 3 years ago during a battle with the ferocious Meningitis. He sacrificed himself to destroy the very last virus and end their scourge in the City of Frank forever. Ozzy just wished he was the one…

Oh Drix… Oh Drix…

But… he shouldn’t have been thinking of such things. Tonight was a night for celebration, not mourning! He was sure he was going to have a splendid time down in the liver.

Or was he?

***

At the party, Ozzy met quite a few of his old friends that he hadn’t seen much of since he retired from the force last year.  He did see that one girl that he dated back after the first movie, and even though they had broken up long ago, it was still nice to see her.

The sheriff was still the same, disgruntled old man that he always was, and he didn’t show any signs of shutting down his career any time soon. Nobody would have had it any other way, either.

That was when the chainsaw hit.

Nobody could have possibly expected something so gruesome, so vile—how could they expect something like this?!

Blood cells from the head began rushing into the brain, flooding it and destroying the entire organ. The mayor and his secretaries attempted to evacuate. They were not able to; they were all killed by the rush of their brethren.

The entire brain was eventually wiped out as the whirling blades of the chainsaw entered it. The entire head would eventually be sliced in half, but none of the FPD had any idea what had actually gone on; how could they have? All they understood was that the brain had shut down contact with the rest of the City of Frank.

All power was lost as a result. It was almost impossible to see, it was so dark. It was absolutely frigid. But these were not the worst of problems after the brain’s destruction. There were no new nutrients being created in Frank anymore; there was no food left.

What would happen? How would the citizens of Frank survive without any food? Nobody knew.

Ozzy went to the slums almost every day, handing out every scrap that he could to the women and children, but the supply was diminishing rapidly. There would eventually stop being any, a fact that most everyone was well aware.

Wars broke out, with dozens of factions fighting over the few remaining resources on Frank. Some resorted to cannibalism, even. It was too much for some people; autocytosis was a common option among those.

None of it mattered, Osmosis Jones realized near the end; it became obvious what had happened. Frank had died, just like Drix.

And soon, so too would he.

Star Wars x Disney: What Could Happen From All This


Everyone’s heard the news; Disney bought Lucasfilm. And Star Wars Episode VII is coming out in 2015. Rather than go on a stereotypical fanboy rant about how the Original Trilogy was the only good thing to ever come out of Star Wars and now it’s just the bane of existence, I’ll focus on the positives and the possibilities that stem from this acquisition.

 

#1: How Awesome Can Episode VII Be?

I’m having a hard time deciding how Episode VII is going to go, considering how few details there are. Will it be an all-new story that contradicts the entire Expanded Universe? Will it be an adaptation? Or will it take place in the Legacy or KOTOR eras to flesh out a new portion of the mythos?

I think I’m all for adaptation. Heir to the Empire or Dark Empire or even Jedi Academy Trilogy (or a combination of all 3) would be the best bet for a solid story, but all of the actors are now pretty old; Mark Hammil’s what, 56 or 57? But skipping to a later story like New Jedi Order wouldn’t work, because most viewers would be very confused about where all these new Jedi came from after Episode VI ended.

Adapting Legacy or KOTOR era stories would be really cool too, and would barely need any of the old actors in any instance, but moviegoers would be more resistant to an entirely new cast and setting than anything. And we all know where this resistance leads (annoying whining about how Star Wars is ruined forever).

Fanboy outcry towards ignoring the EU and going forwards with Episode VII would be large, but not nearly as large, since the EU fandom is much, much smaller than the rest of the Star Wars fandom.

Whatever the outcome, I’m sure that I’ll see it opening night, and I’m sure it will be good. The franchise desperately needs some good media attention!

 

#2: What Can Disney Do With Star Wars?

 

 

Disney likely won’t try and put too much force into the creative focus of any part of Star Wars; as long as it makes money. This is just like what it did with Marvel. People shouldn’t freak out too much about what they could potentially do to ruin the series forever. Remember, this exact same thing happened with Marvel, almost exactly 3 years ago. And look what happened to it:

If anything, Disney can provide the spark that will bring Star Wars back as the blockbuster franchise it hasn’t truly been since 2005. With its nearly unlimited budget, maybe we can actually see the Star Wars Live-Action TV show in the next few years! It airing alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. would probably destroy television, and help bring back actual TV shows on TV, instead of just reality shows and family sitcoms. (Now I’m getting geek visions of all the other shows could come out in the next 5 years that would destroy television; Star Trek by J.J. Abrams, the new Muppets show, among others. )

 

#3: Crossovers?

I know, I know. This is silly. But now that Disney owns Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm….

 

What about Kingdom Hearts 3? Development on the game is just about to start after Final Fantasy Versus XIII releases (okay so not just about to start… more like, start in a couple years….), and with all these insane acquisitions  plus the fact that it will inevitably end up being a next-gen game, could make for more worlds than ever before. Don’t act like you would hate an X-Men World or a Star Wars World or a Toy Story World. Nobody could hate that.

 

What do you think? Comment below; you can even rage about how ruined Star Wars will be if you want.

 

Why Vance Astro Should Be in the Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Film


Let’s just put this on the table where we can see it. Vance Astro is so cool you have no idea.

History:

In the original comics, he was the first person to fly into space out of our solar system, headed towards some planet that could have life on it, Alpha Centauri. And it takes a thousand years to reach it. When he finally gets out, it’s past the year 3000, and there’s a bunch of people and aliens waiting for him; technology had advanced past lightspeed levels in the time since he went in, and now he couldn’t even survive in the atmosphere without a suit, or else his body would oxidize.

Then the Badoon alien dudes attack all the planets in the solar system, take over Earth, and kill most everyone on Jupiter, Pluto, Beta Centauri, where entirely new species of genetically-altered humans lived. Now Vance Astro and his 3 companions, the crystalline dude Martinex, giant dude Charlie-27, and blue dude Yondu Udonta, who were all now orphans in the galaxy. They team up to guard the galaxy from evil…. especially the Badoon jerks. There’s also Starhawk, who is a weird time travel-type guy.

Anyway, Vance Astro eventually gets Captain America’s own shield, has cool mutant powers where he can make psychokinetic blasts and blow stuff up with his mind. The fact he’s like Space Captain America is already reason enough for him to be in the movie, as it would help normal moviegoers connect the movie as a Marvel one, and not just a spacey movie.

Plus, he was on the modern Guardians of the Galaxy team near the end of its run. It’s not like it’s a stretch to add him!

 

I would also be ecstatic to see the other members of the original Guardians of the Galaxy team make their way into the movie, though I doubt that’ll happen. Still… A person can dream.

Venom Movie; Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios Crossover; Fox/Marvel Studios Crossover?


Source: http://www.craveonline.com/film/articles/190183-exclusive-spider-man-producers-tease-venom-storyline-avengers-crossover

The Venom solo movie was greenlighted a few years back, and it seems that they are finally actually beginning to produce it! They’re making it as a side-movie to The Amazing Spider-Man, and the two series could cross over much like Marvel Studios’s movies.

 

What’s interesting, however, is that the producer of the Spider-Man films, Avi Arad, mentioned that, if a deal went through between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, Spider-Man could easily end up in a future Avengers movie. Does that mean all of Sony’s newest movies could crossover with the Marvel Cinematic Universe? I sure hope so! Sony currently owns the rights to Ghost Rider, as well; that series is pretty crazy, to say the least; would Marvel Studios even WANT to add that in as well? I know I do; Nic Cage in Avengers 3 would be incredible.

 

Another recent interview was with a producer of the X-Men films: http://www.craveonline.com/film/interviews/197371-the-ultimate-love-story-an-interview-with-richard-donner-and-laura-shuler-donner

She says that she would love it if the X-Men/Fantastic Four (if a reboot is ever made) and Marvel Studios universes collided at some point. But with X-Men: Days of Future Past (essentially X-Men 4), The Wolverine, and Deadpool all coming out in the next 2 or 3 years, the X-Men universe is pretty cohesive on its own (albeit with quite a few plot holes between movies and the horrible X-Men 3 to deal with); would it even be feasible to mesh the two universes together? I personally don’t think so, but Hugh Jackman cameoing in a Marvel Studios film would be amazing.

 

What do you think?

 

2012-2015: Movies I’m Looking Forward To


There are a bunch of movies that are coming out that I want to see! I will detail them below, in order of release, and why I think they might be awesome. And if I remember, I’ll make an update a few months from now, adding new ones and commenting on how the movies actually turned out, if I saw them.

2012

October 26:

  • Cloud Atlas- It hasn’t gotten very good reviews, but I am a huge fan of time travel, alternate universes, generational gaps, and stuff like that. I’m thinking that I may enjoy it much more than critics, if only for that.

November 2 (My birthday!):

Wreck it Ralph- This is a given. Any video game fan ever will want to see this movie, and I am almost certain that it will live up to the hype. There’s a football game that night, so I won’t be able to see it on my actual birthday, but I will definitely see it as soon as I can on Saturday.

The Man with the Iron Fist: This movie looks like it’ll have some of the best fight scenes out of any movie for the rest of the year, and the soundtrack is already out (http://soultemplemusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-man-with-the-iron-fists-deluxe-ultra-pak) and is great.

November 9 (I will be in New York City this entire weekend, so I won’t be able to see any of these until later):

  • Skyfall: A new freakin’ James Bond movie! Can’t wait. I was impressed by Quantum of Solace, unlike some people, and I have high hopes for this one.
  • Lincoln: The trailer gave me chill bumps. Oh man this movie is going to be perfect. And oh man this movie is probably going to flop at the box office but win Best Picture.

November 21:

  • Rise of the Guardians: This movie will either be amazing and win Best Animated Picture or flop and be yet another forgotten Dreamworks film. I am hoping for the former, as it looks awesome.
  • Red Dawn: There’s no way this movie will be good, but it has Chris Hemsworth and freaking Josh Peck. I will definitely at least see this at the cheap theater.
  • Life of Pi: I saw the 5-minute preview for this movie before Prometheus back in June and this is definitely going to be one of those movies. The 3D is probably going to be amazing, too. (I am a fan of 3D movies when they are not terrible conversions, which basically means like two films a year, and then a couple good conversions like Avengers)

November 30:

Universal Solider: Day of Reckoning- Universal Soldier is back! Let’s see if this thing ends up being a decent action flick, because I love the premise. (Fun Fact: I always get this and Full Spectrum Warrior, a game by Pandemic Studios, mixed up.)

and luckily, there’s a break in December, with relatively few movies coming out for most of the month. This will mean that I can see maybe even most of these in theaters!

December 14:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey- I don’t have to explain this.

December 25:

Django Unchained- A western movie plus a 70s Blaxploitation flick, directed by Quinten Tarantino, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson. I can find nothing to not be excited about in this.

2013

TBA:

  • Riddick: I always liked the Riddick series, especially Pitch Black. I actually didn’t even know that they had started filming the sequel yet, and apparently it’s already in post-production. That’s always good to hear.

February 14:

  • A Good Day to Die Hard- What better way to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day than a good helping of Die Hard?

March 1:

  • Jack the Giant Slayer- Could be good, though the delay concerns me, if it really was just for the special effects or not.

March 8:

  • Oz: The Great and Powerful- We’ll see about this one. I haven’t even seen a trailer yet.

March 29:

  • GI Joe: Retaliation- I know full and well how silly this movie is going to be, and I know full and well that I’m going to enjoy every second of it.

April 12:

  • Oblivion- Somewhat-Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi with Morgan Freeman and…. Tom Cruise…. As long as this isn’t some sort of allegory for Scientology, I think it might be pretty good. The City-in-the-clouds concept has always intrigued me, probably because of my rabid Star Wars fanboyism as a kid.

May 3:

  • Iron Man 3- The trailer just came out, and oh wow it looks amazing. But there is this very slight fear of mine that it could suck, and whoever made the trailer was simply very clever at editing. But this is one of those “Emotional Hero’s Journey” type stories, so it’s likely to actually be good, as long as they don’t take out the trademark Iron Man humor completely. I am not a fan of the Iron Patriot being in the movie, though. Nobody deserves to wear that suit besides Norman Osborn. The character makes the suit, not the other way around. I have confidence that it will be done well, though.

May 10:

  • The Great Gatsby- The book was dull, but it was a very good story. If the movie is done well, then it’ll help a whole new generation learn about how the American Dream is kind of stupid.

May 17:

  • Star Trek: Into Darkness- Star Trek 2 booyeah! The first film was one of the best movies of 2009, and I’ve been hyping the sequel ever since. The reboot series really seems to get it right, where much of Star Trek bores me, outside of The Next Generation. It being so much like Star Wars can’t hurt at all.

June 7:

  • After Earth- I have tepid interest in this film. On one hand, it has the Smith family and a bunch of sci-fi. On the other hand, it’s an M. Night Shyamalan movie…. We’ll see.

June 14:

  • The Man of Steel- Zack Snyder + Christopher Nolan + Superman = this could easily be a Best Picture contender, though people don’t seem to be incredibly hyped for it.

June 21:

  • World War Z- You know what? There haven’t been very many actual zombie movies lately (I am not even considering you, Resident Evil 5. There were like what, 50  zombies in that entire thing?). Strange, considering the craze in all other media, with Left 4 Dead and Walking Dead and stuff.  I dunno how this movie will play out, but it needs to be good to ensure the survival of the zombie genre, because we all know how close to dying it is. /sarcasm
  • Monsters University- C’mon, Pixar! You made a solid string of amazing movies from Ratatouille to Toy Story 3, and while Brave was good, it wasn’t Pixar Good. Make this a sequel worthy of being Pixar Good!

June 28:

Kick-Ass 2: It’s going to be good. Don’t worry. (Fun Fact: I am a Mark Millar Fan. I may be somewhat biased.)

July 3:

  • Lone Ranger- I feel like I’m being way too optimistic when I’m even considering this one to be good, but there’s always a chance that this isn’t another John Carter. And by that I mean it’s going to flop, because the target audience probably hasn’t even HEARD of the Lone Ranger.
  • Despicable Me 2: I can’t lie. The first one was a very good movie, and this may very well be just as good.

July 12:

  • Pacific Rim- Is this what happened to that Godzilla movie that Legendary Pictures was making at one time? No idea, but it has Kaiju, Mechas, and it reminds me of Battleship just enough that I’ll probably want to see it even if it’s bad, in hopes that it is just as corny as Battleship itself.

July 19:

  • RIPD- I am always optimistic about comic book adaptations, and though I don’t know very much at all about this besdies the premise, it does have some star power (Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon), so maybe it’ll hold up.

July 26:

  • The Wolverine- Yeah I know, I know. The chances of this getting higher than a 40% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes are next to none, but Wolverine in Japan is just a really cool concept, and the Silver Samurai is an awesome villain. The less it connects to the rest of the franchise, the better, as not to overload on superheroes in 2013 before the insane amount coming in 2014.

August 2:

  • 300: Rise of an Empire- No Zack Snyder, and nothing to directly adapt like the original, but it could be good. Chances are it’ll be another Wrath of the Titans (or Clash of the Titans for that matter), but meh. I was hoping for Xerxes, myself.
  • Red 2- It’ll be a fun movie. It probably won’t be a runaway success, unless Smurfs 2 and The Wolverine AND 300-2 are all exceptionally horrible, but it could happen.

September 20:

  • Star Wars Episode II 3D- No idea why this is coming out in September instead of February like Star Wars releases usually are, but whatever. Star Wars is cool, though I was disappointed by Phantom Menace 3D for not incorporating any deleted scenes into the movie, even the ones that actually added to the film, or not improving the CGI whatsoever, so that it still looks like a 10-year old movie. I’m assuming there will be no changes to this, either, despite the fact Episode II has some of the coolest deleted scenes in the saga.

October 11:

  • Star Wars Episode III 3D- Like I said already. I’ll see it, but I really wish they did something other than make it 3D, even if the 3D is quite good for a conversion. There’s like, a 10-minute scene they cut out of the beginning just because it made the movie longer. But this is a re-release! They should add in all the cool stuff, even if Shaak Ti dies in the scene when canonically she doesn’t. And Quinlan Vos’s fake death? What about that thing? (that one would have to be cleverly edited into the Order 66 scene though as not to interrupt the score)

November 1:

  • Ender’s Game- There’s a movie of this coming out? Yeah I had no idea either. That’s something to look forward to!

November 8:

  • Thor: The Dark World- Make Mine Marvel. I loved the first Thor; this one better knock it out of the park, cosmic-wise, to prepare audiences for Guardians of the Galaxy, which comes out less than a year later.

December 13:

  • The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug- Once again, I have to say nothing.

2014

TBA:

  • Phineas and Ferb- I’m assuming this’ll be the show’s send-off; there is little chance it’ll be any less awesome than the show itself.
  • Deadpool- I doubt this movie will actually come out in 2014, but if it does, I will be super hyped for it, for obvious reasons.
  • The Flash- Once again, I doubt this will actually release in 2014; the buildup to the Justice League movie isn’t going to be very organized, I don’t think, and Flash and Wonder Woman movies have been in development hell for decades now.
  • Green Lantern 2- The first movie was good fun, except that everyone seemed to hate it. I personally liked it, though if I had seen it when it first came out, I would have hated it since I thought it was going to be a space epic instead of “just” another superhero movie. I think they’ll do better this time.
  • Masters of the Universe- A movie ripe for nostalgia, and just long enough since Conan that everyone will have forgotten about it by the time it comes out.
  • Third Person- Yes it’s a romance movie, but it has 3 separate plots that somehow connect, one of which is between Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde. They had me at Liam Neeson.
  • Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon- Oh, The Rock. How you star in such amazing/horrible movies. I am confident that this will be a greatbad movie as well.

February 7:

  • Need For Speed- Hey look, a video game movie in development that isn’t going to have a release 6 months after it’s announced! That means it could… maybe actually be good? (nah)
  • Lego: The Piece of Resistance- An… actual… Lego movie? Woah. Featuring Batman and Superman… as actual characters? Woah. Already filming? Woah. What is up with this thing.

March 7:

  • Invertigo- Dude crash lands in New York City and creates a vortex where gravity is reversed. This is going to be interesting, hopefully.

March 28:

  • Noah- There hasn’t been one of these type movies since Passion of the Christ! Hopefully this will be an epic of… Biblical proportions. /booyeah

April 4-

  • Captain America: The Winter Solider- The Winter Solider story arc was amazing in the comics, and I fully expect it to be even better on film. And apprently The Falcon’s in it; whether it’s the normal or more-realistic Ultimate version, I don’t even know THEY know yet.

April 11:

  • Stretch Armstrong- …
  • Why the HELL does this exist, and why do I want to see it so much?

April 25:

  • Robopocalypse- Steven Spielberg + Robot Apocalypse. This means it might be awesome.

May 2:

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2- Oh boy, this better be good. I am fully expecting a 2-part trilogy with the 2nd and 3rd movies, both of them about Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin, and if there is anything less than that, I will be so disappointed.

May 16:

  • Godzilla- Hey, didn’t this come out in 2013? Yeah there’s no way this can be better than Pacific Rim, but hey, it’s Godzilla.

May 23:

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes- Rise was a great movie; if the remake series continues all the way through the original timeline in chronological order (unlike the original series, which jumped around a bit sort of), I’m sure it’ll get pretty confusing, but it’ll be awesome nonetheless.

May 30:

  • The Good Dinosaur- An upcoming Disney movie about dinosaurs, if the meteor never hit. Interesting premise.

June 20:

  • How to Train Your Dragon 2- The animated series is very… ehh, but the original movie was good fun, and this will probably follow that trend.

July 18:

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past- If it includes Cable somehow so that he can be in Deadpool or Deadpool 2, I am sold. Otherwise, it could be good, but it could also suck. We’ll see.
  • Hobbit: There and Back Again- ‘Nuff Said. Though I am certain about one thing; one of these two movies is going to get moved back or forward. Two juggernauts at once usually never works out well, at least for all the other movies in the next 3 weeks.

August 1:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy- Please include Vance Astro. That’s all that matters. Vance Astrooooooooo

After that:

  • Avatar 2: In Space! oh wait. Underwater!
  • Hulk 2: Can Mark Ruffalo stand on his own as The Hulk? I don’t know. Apparently following Planet Hulk, even though Hulk in Avengers was incredibly likeable compared to any other incarnation ever. The only way I see it happening is if he is accidentally stranded at the end of Avengers 2 while they are in space or something.
  • Angry Birds: If Angry Birds is even relevant in 2015, I will definitely see this just to see how this is even possible.
  • Avengers 2 and Justice League- DC of course planned this on purpose, but 2015 will be the showdown of the titans. Almost literally, if Justice League follows the New 52’s opening story arc and uses Darkseid. Apparently, Justice League will use Green Lantern, The Flash, and Man of Steel, but it can’t just reboot Batman for money, less than 5 years later. That’s be horrid. Unless Blake is the new Batman. Then it’s cool…… I guess…….
  • Ant-Man: Edgar Wright, you are amazing, and you need to make more amazing things faster. I’m disappointed this has become a Phase 3 movie instead of having 3 Marvel Studios movies in 2014 (along with the 3 other Marvel movies set for 2014, and the 2 DC ones…. ok so maybe delaying it was good….), but it’s going to be so so good.

That was really long and took several hours. I feel like I just went through the future, from next week all the way to 3 years from now. |_|

Distanced: An Audio Drama


Distanced: An Audio Drama cover art

http://thedude3445.bandcamp.com/album/distanced-an-audio-drama

This is one of the Short Story Writing Adventure Marathon stories that I’ve been putting off making for the longest time. What I have learned from making this Audio Drama is that random fiction generators + improvisation make for really stupid stories.

But anyway, download this album and get a bunch of pictures, including drawings I made when I was 7, .docx files of many other SSWAM stories, and 3 bonus songs (one of which is visible to non-downloaders already, though). It is free and you should download it.

Instant Consequence: A Short Tale by Thedude3445


(Kind of just wrote this in a couple minutes on some note cards. I just wanted to make a piece of fiction of any sort that is under the same name as my amazing song (http://datastuck.bandcamp.com/track/instant-consequence))

 

Instant Consequence

A Short Tale by Thedude3445

Mumford & Sons blasted through the small speakers of the alarm clock, and Vriska Serket woke up on the floor of her bedroom, apparently having tumbled off of her bed in her slumber. Her groggy eyes slowly began opening themselves, despite her best efforts to prevent it.

Ugh, morning already?

She had been dreaming such a fun dream; life felt dreary compared to the blissful Alternian moons of her subconscious. What good was life, anyway, when the best part of the day was the time when you weren’t even awake?
Nevertheless, Vriska sat up and stretched her arms. A yawn came out of her mouth. Finally, she punched her alarm clock and silenced Mr. Mumford for good. Or at least until tomorrow morning. What a nice man. Always timely.
Scratching her butt, she looked around her disorderly room. The one office chair was propped against the door, done so in the hope that it would block her younger brother from barging in and stealing her CDs while she slept, something that seemed to have not been successful anyway, as there were discs scattered all over the floor, and several of the best Slipknot albums were missing completely.
The desk itself was covered in a black-and-white mess of her unfinished homework assignments, many of which were already late or due today. Ignoring that, Vriska gazed up at her wall, with the many pictures nailed to it. The beautiful eyes of Skrillex looked down on her in poster form, making Vriska feel completely at ease.
Finally, she spotted the items of her desire; some dirty clothes strewn across the floor on in one corner that she could pick up and wear to class. Vriska knew she needed to do her laundry, but there were more important things to do during the day. Honestly, she didn’t really even care that much how unclean her outfits were at this point.
Getting ready was her number one priority at the moment. In said bathroom, Vriska was able to secure a toothbrush for dental hygiene, and a brush to tame her wild hair, apparently possessed by a demon over the course of the night, by the way it looked now.
Even so, she looked into the mirror and stared into the the face that appeared. It stared back.
I am so beautiful.
Vriska was going to make the most out of this day no matter what anybody else thought or did. She was going to make it awesome.

 

(Anyway, you are going to like a few upcoming posts of mine. A comic review or two maybe, and an overview of my homecoming week costumes. I may review Super Mario 3D Land as well, and I could post a story or two….. maybe.)

 

 

Chocolate Soda?


 

I found this. I just had to try it and see what the heck a chocolate soda tasted like. Especially one that is apparently a diet drink. I assume there’s some diet program that tells you to drink this so you won’t eat a bunch of sweets, but who cares. I want to drink this thing.

Pouring it… The smell is very… uhh… chocolatey.

Here goes nothing……

 

 

It actually ended up being not that bad. Like… It has this extraordinarily odd taste. Carbonated, diet chocolate soda would probably have to be odd. Once you get past the weird carbonation/chocolate combination, it actually starts tasting pretty good, and doesn’t even have a bad aftertaste. Thing is, at least with me, I can only drink a little bit at a time. I start to get a headache after drinking it…. Which is obviously a gigantic turnoff to this drink and I can’t even explain why this is. Maybe it’s just me.

Regardless of that, I would recommend everyone try it just to see what it’s like. It’s definitely the most unique soda I’ve tasted in a while.

 

Deep Fried Reese’s Cups


Deep Fried Reese’s Cups.

I usually don’t “re-blog” things on this, but this is the greatest food I have ever dreamed about in my entire life. I want to make these so bad right now.

I made a poorly-drawn bee


image

Thing about time is that you never seem to have it when you need it, but when you have a lot of it you can never find anything useful to do. Like drawing this picture of a bee. Most nights I would have homework to do, and I would need to study or play my horn. Today, instead of catching up on my to-do list of writing, I decided to draw this bee. I regret it now, but regretting something just takes up even more time that I don’t have now that it’s time for me to go to sleep. See how this works? “Gotta make you understand.” -Rick Astley, famous song-scribe (Kudos to the actual poorly drawn bees guy at http://poorlydrawnbees.com/)
