Can I have link to the admin questions podcast, please? If it's on youtube, I'd prefer that.
It'll be released in a couple weeks!
Oh, ok. I'll wait till then, when it comes out! Thanks!
So awesome that you enjoy sci-fi. I like anything that can potentially expand my imagination, which is why I'm such a huge fan of Final Fantasy, Zelda, Stargate, and etc.
I am glad to hear from you in Nayru, Ezlo.
You usually have so many interesting things to say.
I am sorry, it has been a while since I have spoken to you here.
I know that you have been kind to post things on my page and elsewhere, and I have either said little or nothing.
I am not ignoring you, Ezlo, as you are one of my favorite people to talk with since you are so interesting.
Not to find excuse, but I have been sick, and then when I think I am passed it, I feel sick again.
Not certain what is wrong but I feel congested and am having a somewhat difficult time breathing.
If I do not soon get better I might have to be seen at the hospital.
At any rate, I promise I have not been ignoring you; on top of feeling sick, it is also difficult to find the right things to say at times.
I just got a notification that you enabled a disabled post of mine. The post is disabled for a reason and it contains sensitive information that a community mafia game is based on so other users aren't supposed to see it yet and it is supposedly to automatically upload at the start of a specific time. Just wanted to mention it since it got enabled and I disabled it again.
Yeah, sorry. "Disabled" posts get put in our approval queue because Burning Board is terrible, and I didn't see anything wrong with it and so assumed it was caught by our spam filters by mistake. I won't touch it again!
Oh! That makes sense. No problem. It is completely understandable. Thanks.
No skipping school!
Also, how have you been?
Recently, from what you have written in Nayru, you sound as though life is treating you well.
I am glad for you, Ezlo.
I hope things will carry on for you that way.
What have you been doing, other than skipping school?
Stay is school and be COOL!
Hi, Tead! I just skipped one class today so I could dedicate an extra hour to practicing for my Japanese presentation tomorrow. It was actually a very good decision, I think. Don't worry; I'll attend that class again on Thursday!
Life is treating me alright! My Japanese class is really turning up the heat this semester as far as all these major assignments, but I'm hanging in there, somehow! Other than that, I'm dealing with graduate school preparations and my senior capstone project. And playing lots of Dynasty Warriors in the middle of all that! And producing the ZUCast!
How have you been lately?
Omg, your usertitle thing is so cute!
Thanks! Let's Snuggle Forever is Mimikyu's creepy, exclusive Z-Move. It's really cute because it's about snuggling, but then..."Forever"...!
And that makes it even better!
Have you ever heard of Arndt Pekurinen?
A Finnish pacifist illegally executed by the military for his absolute refusal to carry arms during the Winter War.
He died for his beliefs. There may not be good ways to die, but that's not a bad one, as these things go.
That's a lovely sentiment, and I admire his beliefs, but it's not comforting to me that he died for it. :/
I'm reading your TV show entry about the afterrealms right now, but I just wanted to quickly say that Sanctuary and Amanda Tapping are awesome. She's one of my favorite characters in Stargate, also.
Amanda Tapping is amazing! Sanctuary was such an awesome show, and I was pissed when SyFy axed it. I mean, sure, I guess that ending works as a series finale, but it's kind of anticlimactic. Ugh. (I was even angrier about SGU. That was left completely unresolved.)
Nice to meet another Sanctuary fan! Most people I mention it to haven't heard of it lol. And Sam Carter has always been my favorite Stargate character, even though I have more in common with Daniel Jackson!
The ending to SGU was BULLCRAP!!! And Origins sure as heck didn't give the series closure! *sigh*
Every time Sanctuary came on I'd be like "idk what this is, sooo" then I saw Amanda and was like "OMG IT'S SAMANTHA CARTER!" lol
Daniel is my favorite character in SG btw haha
And even though Sanctuary was great and the ending was ok, I was kinda bummed out it got cancelled too. Same with Firefly. And TerraNova. And all the other awesome shows that should've continued. *sighs again*
Firefly is my #1 Show That Should Not Have Been Canceled. Sure, the Serenity movie was outstanding, but that universe was made for the TV format, and FOX totally screwed Joss Whedon over with that show. They treated him and his cast and crew so poorly with that broadcast schedule that it was almost like they were treating them like children. I hate FOX on so many levels, but the way they handled Firefly still ticks me off to this day.
Hello. *waves hand*
Greetings! Welcome to ZU!
Togepi is the happiest!
Roses are red
Violets are more of a purple-ish color in my opinion but for the sake of this poem let's call them blue
If you were a Lvl. 12 Metapod
I'd level you up so you can evolve, and I'd always choose you!
Thank you so much, Winnie! I'm kind of elated, especially after the related strife I experienced last week!
I'm officially adulting!
How do you feel about the Ferengi episodes? Besides Profit and Lace, that's obviously terrible.
I find the Ferengi obnoxious and basically representative of everything I hate about capitalism (though obviously a hyperbolic representation). Some of the episodes are fun, but most of them are bleh, as far as I can remember. I have a soft-ish spot for later-series Quark and his family. Wallace Shawn is simultaneously both the best and the worst casting decision for a recurring character in DS9 lol; his portrayal of the Grand Nagus is suuuuuper whiny and annoying. But at the same time...it's Wallace Shawn as a Ferengi!
Ah, well, that's the point of the Ferengi, isn't it? They represent everything wrong with capitalism. I like some of the actual episodes, though—they're not necessarily Star Trek's finest hours, but they're comfortable to watch. Business as Usual is probably the best one, and that has only one other Ferengi.
It's been about 5 years since I last saw any of them, so I'll have to come back with a more recent opinion when I see some of them now!
Are you just going to run straight through the series?
Probably! I mean, I usually prefer to go in order anyway, but it's a little more important in DS9, given the various story arcs.
I missed your B-day... darn...
Well, here's a life-size Blue Pig Ganon statue. *gives present*
lol That's quite a gift! Thanks!
Happy (late) birthday, Ezlo! I hope it was incredible!
Thanks, Twi! It was not incredible, but it could have been twelve times worse, so I can't complain!
It's Eden's birthday? Hope it was good one, and the rest of it is too!
It is! It really is! It's been a pretty decent one, though not much has happened outside the ordinary. Luckily, it's been a fairly low-key day!
Good to here, Mimikyu!
Happy birthday!!! I hope it's awesome.
Thanks, Realm! Can't exactly say it's been awesome, but I've had far worse birthdays, so I'm not complaining!
Happy birthdaaaaay Ezlo ^_^
Thaaaaaaaank you, Froyo! ^w^
HAH I remembered today was your birthday.
Happy birthday! I hope you have a wonderful one!
Yay! Thank you!
How is you?
Thanks, Tead! I is quite well! How is you?
Happy birthday, Ezlo! (*^▽^*)
Thanks, Ciel/Luffy/Aria! ^_^
Happy Birthday once more Ezlo! I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with Togepi's and other cute Pokemon!
Thanks so much, Tru! I welcome any and all Pokémon except Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo X, Barbaracle, and Zygarde 50% Form!
Mimikyu! The pokemon that is both adorable and incredibly disturbing.
Ezlo how’s it going?!
Hi, Winnie the Dinnie! It's going rather well! How've you been?
Pretty good! Haven’t seen you around as much, anything new and exciting going on? Maybe I haven’t been on as much though so it could just be me haha
I've been around quite a bit, but I haven't posted quite as much in recent days.
I helped staff my school's anime convention this weekend, which was an incredible experience, even more so than last year! That's probably the biggest thing in my life at the moment. How about you? Anything cool happening on your end?
That's so cool! Any animes you've gotten into lately? I recently started Fairy Tale and found out there's almost 300 episodes!
I started the second (full) season of The Seven Deadly Sins a few weeks ago, but I quickly lost interest after they incorporated the stereotypical anime dialogue about semantics in the form of "power level" breakdowns. That stuff drives me up a wall; I much prefer show to tell. Other than that, I really haven't watched much anime in a rather long time. I was in the middle of the first Naruto series about a year ago. And I'm in the middle of rewatching Ouran High School Host Club, Death Note, and Dragon Ball (original) after I got them on DVD. I was also early on in DBZ a couple years ago, but I dropped that because I found it to be moody, endless-fight-scene trash compared to its fun, light-hearted predecessor. I did see the film Your Name. at the convention yesterday, and that was delightful! Tugged at the heartstrings.
I watched Fairy Tail a while ago. Really fun series if you're into fantasy and magic. Doesn't go overboard with action sequences and has a cast of really interesting characters. I finished watching the first series, which ends abruptly in the middle of a story arc, which boggles my mind to this day, and I haven't gotten back into it since, unfortunately. But it's definitely worth sticking through because most of the arcs build on each other...and also Happy is in it!
Will you marry me?
Buy me a non-alcoholic drink first.
*pours you some refreshing ice-cold lemonade in a Pokemon-themed glass that has Pichu on it eating a donut*
I'm yours lol.
Lol then let us go: to see the world beyond!
I have a feeling that we'll get the release date for Animal Crossing tomorrow and everything will be right with the universe.
I'm so hyped I could cry.
YOU GOT MY FRIGGIN' HOPES UP! *weeps very noisily*
What exactly... I haven't seen the Direct.
Are you... telling me ... there was NO ANIMAL CROSSING NEWS?!
No no no no no NOPE that can't be it.
Nope. I'll save you the delayed grief and tell you that now. There's some interesting stuff in there, but the AC stuff is literally the only reason I fast-forwarded my way through most of that video. No Pokémon, either, but that was a longer shot.
OKAY! The Link's Awakening remake. All is forgiven.
Congrats on your win Ezlo! You deserve it!
Aww, thanks, Winnie! You, too!
When the next Writing Contest starts I'm going to tag every active writer I know of in a PM and try to get the ball rolling.
The Writing Contest is so awesome, I wish more people would get involved.
Don't worry; I tend to get most of the submissions in the final week. I've already gotten a second one, so this contest will proceed no matter what.
Yay! Thanks again for doing the contest. It's my favorite social activity on ZU.
Aww, that's so cool! Happy to be of service!
