Just another day

In response to Daily Prompt.

I cannot say that I have a favourite daily ritual. But my favourite part of the day are usually evenings when I can sit down to my laptop and read/write/watch anything I want and I don’t have anything else to do anymore as all I had to do is at this point usually already done.

I enjoy just sitting and writing or watching anime. It varies what I do, but it usually involves FF. net in some way. It usually also involves anilinkz.com as it is my main sourse of anime. They have a lot of it there and I think it is the biggest archive of anime on the internet since the era of phoanime.com, which I believe no longer exists.

However, now that I think about all I’ve written, I think there is another “kinda-sorta-ritual” that I enjoy. And that is when my mother is using my laptop to play Taptiles as I’m the only one in the family with windows 8. And during this time, I either draw or read a book. Right now I have a really good one – The Man with the Golden Torc written by Simon R. Green. I love his books, but my favourite series from him is the Night Side, however, this is just my translation of the name of the series. I’m too lazy to research it and I also think it is useless to write it in czech as noone would understand it anyway.

So, these are the “sorta kinda rituals” that I do daily or almost daily. And I enjoy them.

See ya!

Rainy photos

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved rain. And today, after some time, it finally rains! So I decided to snap a few pictures. I admit, there are only three, but I think they are good. And to be honest, here where I live, there isn’t much to snap photos of. I will probably have to start taking my camera with me wherever I go and snap everything good I see. Might be a good idea, don’t you think?

Well, it doesn’t really matter right now. So, without further ado, here are the photos. Also, for bigger version, click on the pictures.

Finished dragon

Hi,

I know you’ve seen this dragon before, but! He was missing a wing. And I only realized that after I published the post. So, then I went back to it and added the missing wing. I admit I’m not the best at drawing wings, but I really like this picture.

And I hope you like it as well, at least a little bit. And even if you don’t like it, it would make me happy, if you left a comment.

See ya!

Chemistry Chemistry

beakers1In response to the daily prompt challenge on wordpress.

A few years ago, I saw a musical based on The Prince of Tennis anime. Well, actually, it is a series of musicals, but only the first three or so have english subs. So I only watched the Dream Lives that don’t really need the subs. The thing is, the first one had subs.

Also, there was this moment, they show embarassing pictures of the tennis club members. Well, Inui does and then they show Inui’s. And he’s makin an Inui Juice. And it overflowes. And then there’s Kikumaru Eiji. And he says: “Chemistry, Chemistry.”

That itself isn’t that funny, but in the context, it is. And sometimes, I just remember it and I just have to laugh. Not many poeple would understannd this. Not even after watching the musical, which would require to watch the anime first, or at least read about it, but that doesn’t matter.

It cheers me up and that is what matters, don’t you agree?

See ya!

Upside down

I just thought about something. I was looking at the subtitle of my page and decided to elaborate on it. But, first of all, in order for it to make any sense, you need to understand that I’m a big, big yaoi fan. Yaoi basically means gay. Not porn, definitely not porn, but gay themed with a story. The more english term would be slash.

So, now that you know that, let me explain one more thing. I hate the Bible! No, wait, let me explain. I do hate the Bible, and I hate the idea of one God up there somwhere. And the whole idea of christianity. But! I don’t hate people who are christian. I just don’t like it when they push their believes on me. I will never be a christian. Therefore, the idea of an ideal paradise-like heaven seems really funny to me.

And now for the main part. The part where I explain the “upside dosn” thing. Well, we’re not really exchanging the positions of anything. At least not litarary. You see, I have a very distinct idea of Hell. There are no “shaitans” there (don’t laugh! That’s what the dictionary said!). There are only sexy demons there. Mainly males, of course. This is how the Hell should look like. At least that is the Hell my imagination created.

Now, how the hell does this Hell come into it. Well, that’s easy. We simply switch the roles of Hell and heaven. And yes, heaven with small h – intentional! So, waht do we get? We get sexy demons who are the good guys and a manipulative old bastard of a god that might seem to want the best for everyone at first, but in the end, he’s just a power-hungry morron that wants to rule the world.

Think Dumbledore, but more… Omniscent? Yeah, that’s it, I guess.

Okay, so I think I completely lost my original idea by now. I mean, I was interrupted by mom in the middle of writing this! And she wanted a first aid band! Such a stupid thing to lose my idea over…

I think it was supposed to mock christianity, but in the end, I don’t really want to mock them, I don’t mind them having their believes. I just want to be left out of it. I don’t want them to push their believes on me. I will never be a regular visitor of a church. Unless we talk those old and hunted ones that are half abandoned at the edge of a forrest and surrounded by a creepy graveyard.

So, I guess that the point of this is to say – Believe in wahtever you want, but don’t force others to believe in the same thing, if they don’t want to.

Please, I would be interested in hearing what you think. I would like to know what you believe in, if anything. And if any of you are obsessesd with slash, do tell!

~See ya.

League of Angels

Okay,

before I get sidetracked with “blogging 101: Zero to Hero“, I should probably get this post out of the way, or I might forget. And that would be bad.

So, I wanted to tell you about this one game. It’s called League of Angels. And it is a massive multiplayer online game. Basically, you create your account, you can do this through your google account or facebook and two more. I got my account through google, if I’m not mistaken. But that is not important.

You can pick one of four available characters. Well, technically speaking, it’s two characters that have a male and a female version. If you know me, you know, that I prefer to play as a male character, so it was no wonder I picked a male mage character (Later on, I started on another server and picked the other one). The other character is a knight.

One notable thing about this game is the beautifully drawn characters. Be it the hero or the angels or even the enemies.

The point of this game is to help the angels or something. I confess that I don’t read all the crap they spout. I just play.

This game has many different features. Let’s take a look at some of them:

Guardian Angel:

The first one is an angel that is a sort of guardian. In this game, you can unlock many different ones. The best one is Victoriana, but to get her, you have to be very good and participate in all the tournaments and her icon is really more of a prize for like… The best player on the server or so. The second best is Nyssa and you can get her from the arena shop (more about that later). It costs a lot, but if you save your arena tokens, it is possible. The angels fight alongside you and can deal massive damage to your enemies.

Title:

You can obtain different titles throughout the game. It takes time, but they are worth it. The higher title, the better angel you can unlock. And the better title, the better the bonusses. Like health.

Forge:

I will not go into detail about forge. It is similar in almost every game – basically, upgrade your gear and make it more powerfull. Or you can socket gems that boost your stats.

Party:

In this game, you can recruit heroes that will fight together with you. The higher level, the better heroes you can recruit and the more can fight with you at the same time.

Arena:

Fight against the other players and win arena tokens that you can use in arena shop to buy angel icons and other usefull items.

Mount and upgrading heroes:

There is, of course a mount in this game. You can glamour him, but most of the glamours are very hard to obtain. The basic one takes a hundred days of loop quests (daily quests). And only if it oges well. Sometimes, you just aren’t able to finish all of them

Then, there are many different ways to upgrade your party. There is standard upgrade using bless stones, training using soulstones, elemental upgrade and runes. And your main character can upgrade his emblem. But only if you’re in a guld.

Guild:

Usefull, if you want to have a high emblem. The emblem boosts your stats and quite a lot. But it takes a lot of donations to the guild to get guild tokens and exchange them for the material required to upgrade emblems.

And this is the only thing I do in guild. Of course, there are events that let the guilds fight against each other. And many other things. But this is, I thnk, the most important one. And all you need for it is a one-man-guild.

victoriana-1

There is many other features, but it would take too much time to describe them all. Though I just have to mention the Tidal Pool, where you have to catch fish for gold and mainly soulstone. It is great and you obtain more with a higher level pool. Each caught fish adds to the pool’s experience.

And it is one of the things you just have to try out.

Also, this game does not require that much time. And it is pretty! I mean, come on! Though I don’t want to force anyone. Because, even if I do like this game, games are time consuming and should be played with care and certainly not the whole day.

Still, if I caught your interest, go and give it a try. The registration link is somwhere at the top, where I’ve written the game’s name. It leads straight to the registration. I did this to make it easier for you, if you think of playing. And if you do, come and play on server 63 or 138. On server 63, you can find me as Azrael and on server 138 I’m known as Kain. 

 

Okay, I would also like to know what you think of the game, so leave a comment behind. :)

Ramble ramble…

Hi,

I just wanted to rant for a bit. It’s just… I go to blog.cz and i see all the new posts made by people and I realize that I’m not posting anything. And then I just go and wonder if I should go back to blogging on blog.cz. But then I tell myself that no, I made my decision and I should stick with it.

It’s just… I really want to write, but sometimes, I just don’t know what about. And it gets on my nerves!

Or for example now! I want to start writing about a book I almost finished, but then I tell myself, that I should just write it in czech, because I do’t know half of the names in original… The book is translated to czech, you see…

So… Bad me! For not writing… I should really do something about it.

Maybe I will write about a game that recently I find myself playing a lot.

I should, shouldn’t I?

Okay, I really should stop rambling and get to it.

~See ya.
