Star Wars Celebration VI - The Condensed Version

Star Wars Celebration VI was just fantastic.  It's perfect for any Star Wars fan (except the poor kind), and it's a really good primer for going to something like Comic-Con.  I say that because you really have to pick and choose what you want to do, and you have to sacrifice some things for other things.  For example, I had to sacrifice some really interesting fan panels to go to panels that involved the guests.  And even then I had to sacrifice some of those for other guests!  So I'm just gonna go through the list I made of things I did at the con, and I'll have pics at the end to share!  Want an explanation on something more thoroughly?  Just ask!  I'd rather recap in podcast form, but unless I have a co-host, I think it would sound kinda lame.  Here we go:

Shane Helms is THE MAN!

I just want to let everyone know (as if you really needed further proof) that Shane Helms is THE MAN!  I don't know what happened, but I ordered a Vertebreaker shirt back in March, and it still hadn't arrived as of last week.  I sent THE MAN a friendly e-mail just asking about it, as I assume that his operation is run by himself and a few others at most.  I know he's been through a bit the last couple months, with a new kid on the way among some other things, so I was really just curious as to what was up more so than upset about this matter at all.  I come back from vacation and check my mail today to get a package.  I opened it up and found this.

That's right, not only the t-shirt, but a PERSONALLY autographed 8X10 from THE MAN himself!  This was totally unnecessary and I am extremely thankful!  I might have been lethargic from the weekend trip, but this certainly perked me right up!

So extreme thanks go out to Shane Helms.  Keep healing up, and if LLUSA ever comes around Tampa or Orlando, you can bet your ass I'll be there!

Double Jump!

Double Jump!

Been a tad bit busy the last couple of weeks.  Hell, I'm still busy, but I don't want to hold off much longer.  Also the server I'm working on for class is down, so I've gotta do something productive, right?  It helps that there was no Naruto one week and then no One Piece this week.  I'll still pick two winners though, one for each week.

Also, in some semi-anime related news, I'll be at Supercon in Miami all weekend, hopefully having a good time.  Come say hi and junk!

Also, another Gantz to end it this week.

Weekly Jump Off 21

Week 21!

For once I read these about a week ago.  I'm going to try to go quickly because school and Suda51 games are really eating my time up this week.  I generally want to stay short anyway, because you should really read these comics yourself!

Gantz as well this week.  I should be doing "better" things right now...  Proofreading is also still for chumps this week!

Weekly Jump Off 20

Week 20!

So it looks like we're a month shy of being halfway done with this year of manga.  That's really the only thing special I could come up with for the twentieth edition.  Although I might have an announcement of some going-on coming up.  Haven't decided yet.

No proofreading again, as I should be in bed.  In fact, I welcome the grammar police!

Weekly Jump Off 19

Week 19!

Alright.  Gonna try a slightly new (well, probably old, and the way I used to do it.  I don't remember.) format.  I'm probably still going to write these at the 11th hour, knowing me, but I'm going to actually read them first only writing the most basic of points  Then I'll write what I remember and only go back to pick up some details.  This way they'll be shorter, and actually the parts worth remembering, right?  I still plan on going through the end of the year.  We need an ultimate champion!

Not a terrible week, but I've seen better.  Also, more Gantz, and screw proofreading this time, I'm tired.

Week 18!

Is this week more than just a pretty face?  Well we've got a lot of action this week; that's a plus.  But who is the actioniest?

Weekly Jump Off 17

Week 17!

Or is it 18?   Nah, 17.  I'm not counting Golden Week.  This week was really kind of meh, so I'm expecting good things next week.  Well there was one good thing at least...  and I think I say the word creepy in two different sections.  For different reasons, I assure you.

Also.... another new Gantz.

Weekly Jump Off - Golden Week

Golden Week!

It was Golden Week last week, so that means no Jump.   So for once I'm not technically slacking!  Hooray!

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Weekly Jump Off 16

Week 16!

Whew... talk about being late.  It's Tuesday night and I'm just catching up... in other words, new chapters start tomorrow.  Heck, some spoiler raws are probably already out.  I've just had too many musical adventures this week I guess.

And.... another new Gantz.  Sporadic.

Week 15!

I should be doing a project, but this felt better...

Another decent week.  Mostly backstory for all of them, except Reborn.

Also, it's about time, new Gantz.

Weekly Jump Off 14

Week 14!

This week was overall better than the last few.  Not really for the action, but some cool plot points.  Nothing groundbreaking, but some cool stuff none the less

Also, D.Gray-man!

Weekly Jump Off 13

Week 13!  Friday the 13th is this week as well... totally didn't plan that.

No One Piece this week, which honestly probably gives one of the others a chance to catch up a little.  I think these comics have been in a bit of a dry spell though.  Not that the stories are bad; I'm enjoying them and all.  Just nothing has put me on the edge of my seat that much these last couple of weeks.

Also, if I remember to read it, we see what the hell Link was up to in D.Gray-man next week.

Weekly Jump Off 12

Week 12!

Or should I say Week 13?  Nah, I'll do last week's now and hopefully this week's soon.  I'm gonna blame Archer this time, not myself.  Also my usual reading site is on the fritz, and my backup site's domain expired last week.  So let's hope I don't delay any further.

Weekly Jump Off 11

Week 11!

I really need to keep up with these releases better. There was a new Reborn! last week after all.  I'll read it, and if it is spectacular enough, I will change my decision.  It'd have to be pretty good to beat SUPER Franky though, and I'm not holding my breath.  Also, Gantz!

Road to Wrestlemania

So tonight I had the pleasure of attending a WWE House Show.  I tried to get some of you to go, but you all had mostly legit excuses, so I don't blame you.  I won tickets and a swag bag from a radio station promo so I had 5 extra tickets total; one next to me and 4 halfway up Section 221.  I expected this arena to be the size of the Sun Dome maybe, so I thought the 221's were gonna suck.  However, those who saw my twitpic earlier, can tell that the arena was about the size of a high school gym... so those tickets weren't bad at all.  Luckily, I knew some coworkers that were going, and they graciously allowed me to sit with them two rows down (which you can see in the twitpic), so I wasn't forever alone at this thing.  So, it's a shame you guys had to miss it, but I'll briefly (those who read my other posts know I mean briefly) go over the matches tonight.  Overall it was a good show, and I'm glad I went.  Especially since this is probably the only way I'll ever be on the floor for a WWE show.  I was expecting a little more variety out of the matches, but still, overall not bad.

Weekly Jump 10

Week 10!

So.. for the 10th Anniversary, I've got two chapters this week.  TWO.  The ultimate in laziness for me! (Especially since Mass Effect 3 was my life for the last two weeks)  It's an all out classic brawl between Ninjas and Pirates this week!

Weekly Jump 9

Week 9!

Another chapter of Gantz, and I almost missed Reborn!  Seriously.  It wasn't on the site for a couple of days, and I just happened upon it like 20 minutes ago.  Next week would've been weird if I missed it this week.  Also I break the unprecedented 4-way tie!

Laziness overtakes again, as new chapters are tomorrow, and I've pretty much given up on collages.  BUT!  I'm sticking with this, which was my goal in the first place.

Weekly Jump Off 7

Week 7!

Only 3 chapters this week, so the rest can get a jump on One Piece.  No pics again... as you can tell it's already Monday.  I'd like to make excuses for how busy I am, which I am during the week, but I did play Skyward Sword for like 8 hours this weekend.  A rare treat indeed.  Also I breezed through the new Alan Wake this week... other than the arcade stuff.  But I digress...

Kind of a slow week compared to the last few in my opinion.  Life was busy though, so no thrown together collages this time.

Weekly Jump Off 5

Week 5! 

Bleach is back!  Did it cut the mustard this week?  Also not one, but TWO bonuses:  Gantz and D.Gray-man.

Next week might be a short one again due to the combined duties of organizing my place, work, school, and Megacon!  Maybe I'll see you there.

Weekly Jump Off 4

Week 4! 

Better late than never and pictures are back.  Bleach returns next week... will it mean anything?  Also a new chapter of Gantz has finally surfaced after like a month.  Scroll down to the end for that one.  I even included a video clip, which I try and stay away from unless they're my own.  Not for copyright reasons, but you just never know how long things last on the Youtube.

Weekly Jump Off 3

Week 3! 

Sorry, this one's not gonna have any pictures or any huge summaries.  I am SWAMPED this week.  On top of school work I've been moving into a new apartment this whole week, trying to use almost every free minute I have packing and moving.  It's very taxing, but I wanted to at least score it this week.

Weekly Jump Off 2

Alright... on to Week 2!  There's week was definitely better than last week on the whole.

Bleach is taking a three week break... hopefully so Kubo can think of some better ideas or GTFO.  Or, as a much better idea, continue and finish Zombie Powder (who am I kidding?)  Will it catch up to the rest this year?  Time will tell.

Weekly Jump Off 1

So, I've had this idea for a bit now, since I still faithfully read 4 titles of the Weekly Shonen Jump, and usually talk manga briefly with friends on a semi-weekly basis.  I was going to briefly summarize them (in probably the worst ways possible) and then have a totally baseless contest to say who my "winner" of the week is for whatever reason that I feel fit.  Usually it'll be some badass,  Shonen-type moment that'll push me over the edge.  Maybe my favorite character will get a lot of action that week, who knows!?  I'll also throw in a fancy* collage for each one. And maybe I'll have an overall monthly/yearly winner... something fun.

This can be all up for debate, as well!  I can tell you why you're wrong!  It'll be fun!

I'm also current with Gantz and D.Gray-man, so I might add those as bonus chapters when they come around, as they are more sporadic.  And if I can get enough focus, I'll work on getting current with Toriko and up to Jojolion.  We'll cross that bridge when we get there, though.

But remember one thing before you venture forward... SPOILERS!!!!!

I wish I would never...

Anyone curious how I decided on the name of this blog?  No?  Well, you should take a listen anyway, dammit!  I'm always up for talking Coheed mythology, etc., if I can remember half of it.

This Must Be It... Yet Again

This must be it.
Welcome to the new year.

Look!  I started a new blog.  I'm sure Blogger isn't hip with you young kids now, but it's simple and effective.  I plan to get my own website soon, and I have a few names available that I might want to use, but I'm still deciding on what I want.

The drinks were consumed,
the plants were destroyed,
and the hors d'oeuvres dismantled.

2012 is going to be big for me.  Well, at least January will!  I'm going back to school, moving somewhere (completely on my own), and allegedly moving on up in my career.  Can I juggle all of these things at once and keep my sanity?  Stay tuned and find out.

I'm not smiling
behind this fake veneer.
I am often interrupted
or completely ignored,
but most of all I'm bored.
