doggiedynasty: (Super Cry)
Old ladies making old ladies cry

She is my freakin hero...!~

A follow up of a previous entry. When they said "instruction", that's what I was expecting. Turns out she is quite sensitive and cooperative with a "stress relief" method and a positive, free way of thinking.

I can't absorb all the details (will report my heart out here when ready.)< because I'm still so amazed, but there's one thing that really sticks out from the entire program. Each instructor, at the end of the program, gives a final message. This isn't the entire thing, but this is the gist of it: "I love myself .... everyone, please love yourselves as well."

I went crazy.

"What the...?! Why?" Why did she say this?! And all of a sudden?!

It's like I loved her more. No, I was completely touched, maybe abnormally so. I nearly cried like I watched a Disney death scene or the like because I could not believe it. I wanted to bury my face into a chest; apparently hugging is a little outrageous in Japan but I felt that way.

I was shocked and touched because not just what she said was right but because it's was a total coincidence with my recent feelings, and I have trouble following such a message. it was a completely simple message.

For the past two weeks, I was just upset with myself. Even as I type, I still kind of am. Not AS much as before, but still confused. I took time off work and it's like I became more upset admist relaxing (or I was supposed to). I wanted to quit my job too because I couldn't get over the idea that I was where I was now due to being incompetent and poor, and I couldn't brainstorm over how to fix it. I'm ambitious, but am I working to hard for a low wage? Am I caring too much? In fact, I have a notice template saved on word document if I came to the point that I wanted to leave work. So, I had those kind of black thoughts.

I told myself that there can be a light at the end of the tunnel, believe in oneself, etc.

Despite that, I was not self-satisfied. I was still broke, and you can see more in my locked "Doggie story" entries. No need to talk about it again. So why does this still gather above my head to bother me? Because I feel like I'm not sharp enough to find a solution. Is it friends/social interaction? Is it patience?

So when I saw that message, I was unexpectedly filled with emotion. I still thought "how", at the same time, I was deeply touched and surprised. It could've been anyone else who said it, but I was overwhelmed this time.

And for some reason, I felt an underlying dread that something was going to happen to her.

Remember my Writing Meme?

Like I said, I am not confident in my writing that much and I don't like exposing it as this is not a writer blog. Some people tend to create blogs that exclusively contain their writings.

So, why the change now? I thought I should try, take a step. Also, I can't receive constructive crit if I don't throw myself [what I propose] out more to wider eyes. Seriously, I don't promote anything, so little reception that I get usually depends on how popular the fandom is or maybe the story summary.

Another reason is for selfish reasons? Because I have a good feeling about this new "project" that I have in mind.

It's called Uzumaki.

NARUTO fanfic, which I thought I wasn't going to do because the fandom kind of annoys me, but the thought of a re-telling was tugging at my mind too much. Also, the comic seems to be nearing the end? It's at the final battle. So, after a long time reading NARUTO (and being disappointed at some of Part 2's direction), I've decided on this.

More later.

What is going on, 2014?

I mean seriously, the bad luck is accumulating. Or maybe it's my bad mood that's accumulating. It's probably "mood".

I don't think I've been that good since New Years. Sure, I enjoy watching the Kamen Rider series but that's it. I feel overworked for little to none, but so as do a lot of people, but I found myself unable to be positive. And I miss quality TV because I'm gone or busy through most of the day? And I'm still wracking my mind over why I must deal with the stupidity behind my niece.

Of course, there's comedy -- youtube never fails with that. The weather has been pretty good these past few days. However, I'm still prudent at the wheel. Second thought, I felt like a shitty driver.

The roads are mostly clear and plenty of the snow has melted, but maybe there's a lingering effect from the sub-zero chill and the ice and snow? Seems to be the case with my dog, who refuses to stay outside even in the sunshine. Car wouldn't work at one point and I had to get a new tire of course.

Maybe I shouldn't complain. Even on my Friends List, I'm a little unnerved by the entries of those I follow (or who follow me). Sometimes I wonder, "Why can't they be a little more friendly? There's more to things than garbage from family/co-workers."

How to start?

I guess I'll do something I rarely do in the next entry.

[ Green River ]
(SOURCE) (Also nicodouga)
So just recently, Midorikawa Hikaru was heckled by fans on his blog, resulting him in putting his blog on hiatus. Well...I'm pretty annoyed by that of course. oh nonono, you're not an old man! So apparently, a lot of marriage suspicion. Maybe it's a western thing, but I am happy that he is married and I am happy that he is attached to his fans, thus the reason for the blog. He is also very dedicated to his roles such as in the gundam and Super robot wars series.

[ Resolution ]
Last year, I didn't consider it. In fact, I very very rarely consider resolutions, but I've decided on something that I think I can accomplish.

Read three or four novels before the end of the year. I don't know if that is an appropriate number.

Last week, I've purchased novel YUKIKAZE! (Official Site. FAF stands for Faery Air Force) Thoughts on it some other time, but I like it so far? Even thought I've read that there are some pretty bad mistranslations. I can't get far just yet, since I still have my Crichton book to finish.

[ Videos / Sailor Moon ]
I'm posting it because the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary is totally heating up with merchandise and con guests, and this video is just so touching. You don't have to agree with English dubbing, I'm just posting this here because...well, it's a story and I can't help but appreciate what Susan Roman did. Even if it's a dub, there's fans of it. In other words, those who were touched by Sailor Moon even if it's a different form.

Also, I'm reminded of the stories about She-Ra and Thundercats. Maybe Susan's "gun" bit was a bit extreme? ^-^;

Also, Sailor Jupiter happens to be my fave out of the inner Sailor Warriors (the original five or is it six?).

VanossGaming. Funny stuff. They look like a bunch of gamers that are easily humored and playful.

Prank. LOL.
doggiedynasty: (The Ban Stare)

My week starts rough and ends rough. I had an ugly 'hate dream", which I didn't want to agree on, and my Sunday started rocky. Now I wonder about myself, and if my dream reflects myself. Or didn't I say before that dreams are mostly negative?

I almost didn't want to go anywhere.

Anyways...back to the title.

America is, apparently. And Britain isn't happy.

I'm sure most of us dislike war for obvious reasons, and either inside or stated openly, we have conflicting reasons over why we should go or why we should not go. First I thought, I agreed with what John Kerry said Liberals liberals, Lib-tards, whiners, dumbass, huah huah huah with "speaking to us [the people of the nation] for an answer" at the start of the announcement. I couldn't hear everything because I was in my car on a short break, listening to the radio.

Did America, and myself as an American, wanted payback for 9/11? Yes. Do I dislike violence? Yes. Do I like self-defense? Yes. Do I like to see innocent children and medical personnel get killed? NO! A one-track mind. Even in Hetalia (Axis Powers ヘタリア), America is portrayed with a "justice loving" stereotype. There's also a ton of other Japanese manga/anime and games; one that sticks out in my memory the most is my bro GALFORD from Samurai Showdown (Samurai Spirits) series! =D

But the question is: Why help Syria? Is America the Superman of the world?
And what would our image be if we did nothing?


More tipping politics scale. No idea why I was rambling about mentality )

I am not denying anything. I guess someone has to do it. Right needs to punch the Left radicals and Left needs to the punch the Right radicals. Wouldn't call it "news".

With that said, 50 years ago, MLK made his "I have a dream" speech.

I'm putting up a photo of Kaze Tachinu because:
1.) Airplane!
2.) Hirokoshi Jiro looking cool
3.) It's flat out cool
4.) Miyazaki Hayao's passion and pacifist beliefs
5.) I want to watch it

So Miyazaki is getting criticized for worshiping Hirokoshi as a hero. The movie is a tribute to the warplane engineer, his dream, and his struggle during the Depression and 1930s earthquake. Miyazaki spoke against the Prime Minister and his idea to revise the Renunciation of War of Japan's Constitution. Miyazaki was also against "re-writing the truth" (aka: reading only what we choose to know).

Banning of "Barefoot Gen" in children schools

I can't say anymore until I watch the movie. But, since Hiro was willingly building warplanes responsible for the historical incidents that make Japanese and Koreans alike sensitive, what is Miyazaki's view? What am I missing? Is it just Hiro's desire? No matter what his Zero fighter did?

Vehicles are flexible and don't have to be built as weapons. Even though, I TOO think that fighter planes are pretty darn cool. They maximum the effectiveness of aerodynamics, and look pretty sexy while flying.

Also, Miyazaki is retiring? Naaaaah, you wouldn't do that would you?

Which reminds me, I am writing a fictional story about a pilot who loves flying. He graduated from Officer's training and eventually became a fighter pilot, because he was inspired to love fighter planes. After a match against a rival, he mention that non-simulated air combat will be the test he needs to further pursing his flying craft. Before that, he questioned why America went to war and what did it mean to "be an American"?
doggiedynasty: (Busy and Books)
I'm a bit embarrassed by this, but found a writing meme from [ profile] chaosmindfuck. I was bored, so I thought to myself, "Could I possibly do this?"

I'm embarrassed because I don't talk about what I write; least, not on this blog. ON THIS BLOG, I talk about what I read, and that I do attempt to write, but nothing too specific. I often worry over my grammar and get discouraged by others. Chaos seems to be very fascinated about fanfiction and shares links to many. I, on the other hand, don't write anywhere on Livejournal or social networking sites.

Anyone can write, but my views on fanfiction can be ambivalent. I am impressed by works which show that a fan is in tune with what he/she enjoys. He/she knew what he viewed from pre-made content and can deliver it into another story.

On the other hand, fanfiction can make me a bit upset. Like, I can't believe what I see from those who like the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I dislike bad characterization. It doesn't have to be perfect, but writing a story is always an attempt.

Eh...I'm rambling.

This meme may be boring.

I was wondering if I should even blog about this because I am a naive person when it comes to societal functions. If I did, it'd be political and I'd be called named such as "thug supporter" and "libtard" (whatever that means).

CNN:George Zimmerman found not guilty of murder in Trayvon Martin's death

The above video, and a talk with a co-worker, made me wonder. My mother said, "it's all in the evidence".

I don't like racial prejudice. Frankly, it's quite simple to call bullshit "prejudice"
, or it's quite simple to accuse Zimmerman of using prejudice because of what he said on the phone. Plus, he should have not have gotten out of the car.

I don't agree with this final judgement, so I wonder what everyone was thinking.

Aside from this, babysitting is making me grouchy. The munchkin has a big mouth.

I haven't blogged in a while so maybe everything looks a bit messy. I can't read either. (u.u;)

I came across this story, and remembered when I talked about mental scars. Maybe I should show this story to my mom too.

There once was a little girl who had a bad temper.

There once was a little girl who had a bad temper. Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the girl didn't lose her temper at all. She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold her temper. The days passed and the young girl was finally able to tell her mother that all the nails were gone. The mother took her daughter by the hand and led her to the fence.

She said, "You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one."

You can put a knife in a person and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say "I'm sorry", the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.

Those last paragraphs.

Where are they...

Mentioned here, I was looking for that story about the brave little boy. I found it.

LINK: Jason Smith, Kansas City Boy Who Saved Brother During Double Homicide, honored by police.

;_; Good kid. "I didn't want him to go through the same situation."

The police department in Kansas City, Missouri held an awards ceremony Thursday to honor Jason Smith, a 10-year-old boy who saved his brother's life during a horrible home break-in that left his mother and grandmother dead, Fox 4 News Kansas City reports.

Smith is the only person not employed by the police department to receive their prestigious life-saving award, which they bestowed in honor of his bravery and quick-thinking last summer on July 28.

Smith's ordeal started around 1:30 a.m. that morning, when he and his 2-year-old brother Zion were asleep with their grandmother. That's when Rufus Young, their mother's ex-boyfriend, burst into the house with a gun, KCTV reports.

Young shot the boys' grandmother while she was holding Zion in her arms, and then turned to find their mother, 36-year-old Naushay Riley. The boys' uncle Robert Hauer explained what happened next.

Should he get such an award? Or maybe I should ask, would you have done the same thing?

The comments expresses it enough: MY HEART OVERFLOWS.

Taylor Sauer knew facebooking while driving was a bad idea.

The 18-year-old college student said so in her last status update: "I can't discuss this now. Driving and facebooking is not safe! Haha."

At the time, Sauer was driving 80 mph from the Utah State University campus in Logan to visit her folks in Caldwell, Idaho, and was passing the time on the four-hour drive by messaging her friend about the Denver Broncos, according to

Moments after her last update, she crashed her car into a tanker truck that was going 15 mph up a hill and was killed instantly....

Another year is here, for Ban and me.

And I still never posted a single photo of me on the net, much to the annoyance of some people.

Today is also WRIGHT BROTHERS DAY! When Orville and Wilbur set the record for having the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight with their airplane. What a honor. Surely, it's just a coincidence that I like planes as much as I do.

December's an interesting month. Winter starts (U.S), but also my youngest sister's b-day was on the 7th, there's also Christmas, and my dog's b-day is 12/23 (Met her Jan 2001 ;) EDIT: Jan 2000.). Also, I can remember the attack of Pearl Harbor easily, but just saying it was "ten days ago from today" ~.~; Which happened 70 years ago!

About BLOG and me
I made this blog on Christmas, seven years ago. I am surprised I had it for this long.

I think changing my layout would be nice. May need to fix my Memories, make sure they're in order.

INTERESTS: Did some looking over with my profile's interests. I thought I had too many seiyuu names. For example, while I like Hideo Ishikawa, I rarely speak about him. I think I talk about Takayama Minami (and TWO-MIX) much more than him. I also had game titles such as 'Legend of Dragoon", which I haven't played in years and left the enjoyment way in the past. Also, anime favorites listed. Ton of character names like Piccolo, Samus, Sanosuke Sagara, etc.

I read about crime a lot, and both war and crime documentaries seem to really grab my interest.

2011: More me
Like I said in a previous entry, the start of the year started out peaceful, then I started exerting myself, then everybody got sick around the end of the year. Mother for the past few months has been having health trouble. It's like the dog is more healthier than anyone.

- Shared my Sonic the Hedgehog memories

- I run [ profile] katsuki_masako after some urging (and a dream?). Recently, She's been playing the new Monster Hunter 3G, and she gets lost and keeps burning her meat while cooking.

- I think I've learned how to be more patient, and more accepting about myself. In the future, I want to be more reliable. Maybe be a wife one day.

After many years, and right around midnight too, I once again beat BREATH OF FIRE 3! and its ending theme is just so beautiful. It's called "PURE AGAIN".

In early November, 3-and-a-half-year-old Duncan saved his best friend's life.

Duncan, a boxer, pawed and barked at his owner, Scott Dunn, until the man awoke to find the house full of smoke, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Dunn was able to escape to his truck, but heroic Duncan died in the fire.

We often hear stories of life-saving pets like Duncan, but what compels these faithful animals to perform such heroic acts -- love for their owners or their own survival instincts?

Today, I'll post about MOTHER3 and Sonic, but I have to figure out what game for the latter.

First is MOTHER3. I finished it a month ago.

Time for more memories of twenty-year-old Sonic the Hedgehog. This time, I'm going to talk about the sequel of the first Sonic game, simply called Sonic The Hedgehog 2.

Features such as FANTASTIC music and stages designed to adapt to high speed are kept from the first game, but significant changes that stick out of my mind are the following:
~ The introduction of Miles "Tails" Prower the fox
~ 2 Player Mode
~ With the exception of Metropolis, Sky Chase, Wing Fortress and Death Egg, the acts of the levels are reduced from three to two.
~ New awesome special stages!
~ I think the Spin Dash in introduced
~ Introduction of SUPER SONIC

Tails...would always get bashed. I guess it's because he's slower than Sonic, his A.I is a bit incompetent, and he would mess you up in the special stages sometimes. Also the later games, where he gets a voice over, might have something to do with. But hey, he's immortal! Can't beat that. I don't hate Tails at all, and I like foxes.

In my opinion, if you like Sonic music, the theme for Emerald Hill Zone (the FIRST stage) is a big winner. It's like a start of a new day, a new Sonic game; when the music of Emerald Hill, you're swept into playing enthusiastically because you're expecting a good game and good music.

Sonic 2 had probably the funnest Special Stages; and if not, definately one of my favorite music themes in Sonic Game history. It does get tougher and frustrating in later stages, AND I think I got ALL of the emeralds ONLY once. To get the Chaos Emeralds, you are transported into a Funnel and are supposed to catch a specific amount of rings while dodging bombs.

Special Stage

Doggie TRIVIA:
~ It took me over ten years to beat the whole game because the final boss would give me a lot of trouble.

~ Mystic Cave Zone (6th stage): This stage had a caterpillar like enemy in there that was would stick out the trees to attack you. It used to scare me.

mm, what else can I say?
doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Default)


Ta-Da! My instruction booklets of Sonic 1 and Tales Adventures. Real ones!

Tales Adventures was for Gamegear. Little guy knew how to build stuff. ;)

Time for some music!

Okay, my good memories of Sonic the Hedgehog. I'll take my time and span my thoughts through different entries.

Let's start at the beginning with the first game, Sonic the Hedgehog or simply Sonic 1 for the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive.

I put in the cartridge, turned on the console, then BOOM! Sonic appeared on the screen in pretty 16-bit color waving his finger. When you press start, "GREEN HILL ZONE! 1" slides across the screen and then you were off, running for a couple of seconds, jumping to catch rings, and across the fish-infested bridge. Back then, I don't think there was such a fast-paced game.

The Sonic 1 game came with my Genesis when it was first purchased. I can't remember what pulled me in, I must've watched footage of the game in a store. All I know is that after I started playing the first game, both Sonic the Hedeghog and Sega would become icons within my "game life" for years.

Sonic 1 has very simplistic gameplay. You had the start button, D-pad, and three jump buttons. All you had to do was move, pause, and jump. A strength of Sonic 1 was the flow of the speed on a 2-D stage, the game giving you this loose freedom of running so quickly across loops and inclines and the camera following you perfectly. Something was great about that. Another strength IS THE MUSIC of the game, and I don't think music from the Sonic games has waned. Sure, I'm not that big of a rock or pop fan for the comtemporay music of today's Sonic games but some are still entertaining.

Hardest Level was probably Labyrinth Zone, ugh. Or maybe Scrap Brain Zone, which is the last level. Labyrinth had a terrible boss too. I know when I last played Sonic 1 (couple years ago?), these stages gave me the most trouble.

In my opinion, the bad things about Sonic 1:

~ This goes for Sonic series in whole: Drowning and the DROWNING music. Also, water makes you sluggish.
~ Special stages for Chaos Emeralds. You're in a rotating confinement that changes speed. It can give you nausea and it's tough to navigate.
~ Labyrinth Zone's boss
~ Collecting 50 rings in later levels (to get to special stage).
~ Spike pits.
~ Prone to falling in Starlight Zone and Scrap Brain zone

I think I only beat Sonic 1 two or three times with all of the Chaos Emerals.

I'm also very lenient when fighting the last boss.

[ Sonic the Hedgehog Memories ]
Like I mentioned in a previous entry, Sonic the Hedgehog has turned twenty years old last June. I like to share some memories, but I'll do that in the next entry since I need to take care of a few things. When I come back, I'll spill my heart out.

So I'll start with a photo!
My ol' Sonic 3 Gamebook!

I'm also aware of the passing of Kawakami Tomoko (川上 とも子), but didn't want to speak of it. It was difficult. Seeing sorrowful comments, but at the same time endearing comments and tributes, was too much. Her surname's kinda cool: It's like River Superiority. .

Here I go again: Capital Punishment

Had a somewhat busy day today and I'm drowsy from the rain, but it looks like it will heat up to 50 F!

Anyways, something cool...

Through the entire last week, I had been inspired by hope and my Writer's Block stopped momentarily.

Also, once again, I have been surprised by my ability to research and when I push myself to find what I'm interested in. I made myself happy when I find knowledge from different sources connect. When they connect, that means it must be right and I'm following what I read. And!! Ignorance decreases!

Also, I'm nervous about Libya.

So here's one big story for 2011.

HOW scared would you be if you saw a thousand dead birds all over the place?!

What happened?!?
doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (WHAT?!)
This is a big big "Duh" but I'm going to say it, then I can come back and remind myself anytime.

Now I see why I like History so much.

It's nothing but a big web. It is entangled to economics, war, anthropology, evolution/progress, politics, etc. And it must explain why I get enticed by all of those too.

Back then, what were we into? Trade, fighting, absorbing different cultures into our own...conquering, etc. I think I read this everywhere, and it shows how people think. I guess that's what I like: The aspect of People .

Reading Dedication II + Gundam
Forgot to expand on this last entry.

I must be impatient. I feel like if I read a book, it'll take too much time from the day. That thought also comes from my issue with reading sentences or paragrapghs over and over, and trying to remember what I read. I do remember what I read but it's blurry. I have trouble with names, like the names of authors when pointed out for references. For example, "this [author] is a prime example of fantasy writing". Of course, names like Anne Rice and Tolkien are memorable.

I have four books of interest, all over 100 or 200 pages. Neither are novels. Mostly "ABOUT" type of books.

To work on my memory, summarize Mobile Suit Gundam (0079). The first first GUNDAM! Episodes 1 through 5.

Just remember what I watched.

Gundam: Memory Test )

New Ace Combat. It's called "Assault Horizon"!

I don't want to be a downer, but sometimes these news bits are interesting. Where are we headed?

Michigan controversy!

There's also the news about the teen girl suicide, whih also caught my interest. Why? Because bullying is a big deal and has onsequences. It prompts anti-social behaviors. Earlier today, and I don't know if it's the same girl, there was this video about the girl's family being trolled with awful messages (ie: "How's it hanging?")

Thee was also the girl who was beaten into a coma by a kid over a text message.
