I had wanted to write this blog quite some time ago. Oni-Con took place in the last week of October. And my entire reason for wanting to be down there was solely to see the Earthbound Papas. Well, who are they? Quite simply, this is the most recent band headed by lead keyboardist, Nobuo Uematsu, Read the Rest…

The Art of Subtitling

marzgurl | Apr 28 2011 | Comments  5 

Yes, it’s that time again. Time for me to come off as some kind of pretentious tool who thinks she knows better than the people who produce or subtitle works of visual media. Well, all I can really say is that it’s not my intention to try and force anyone who enjoys subtitling to change Read the Rest…

It’s true. Today’s my birthday. And I have enough birthday memories to last a good long while. But here’s a couple that might make sense to a few of you readers out there. Everything about Final Fantasy IX as a game speaks directly to me as a fan of the game (and of what the Read the Rest…

I mentioned on my Twitter account recently that my birthday is coming up (January 27th). I guess upon mentioning that, a few people wanted to know if there was anything they could do for my birthday. I received a few E-mails, actually, asking if I had a PayPal account they could donate to. Heh, always Read the Rest…

I Should Have Gone To Chicago

Tonight is the TGWTG Charity Drive for the Ronald McDonald House of Chicago. I was not at this drive. However, I was at least asked to participate. Unfortunately, I had to turn it down. Because, where did I have to be on this same night? Atlanta. I regret this very much now. Let’s jump back Read the Rest…

I’m Not Worthy!

This is a topic that I’ve been thinking about for quite some time now, but it is currently fresh in my mind and is magnified by the fact that I am here at YuleCon this weekend and have experienced it even more so. I typically think that I’m just the Average Joe who just got Read the Rest…

Back from lots of trip stuff

I hadn’t updated with the last bit of my Japan trip due to the fact that the last hostel for the last night in Tokyo didn’t have wi-fi for my laptop to connect to. Now, about a week later, I am finally home. I think it would be quite a bit difficult for me to Read the Rest…

Yesterday morning, the Japanese lady who had been staying with us since we got here had to leave. But she stopped to wake me up to give me a gift of some blueberry candy, and cold compress sheets for my feet! How thoughtful of her! And then she left. I wanted to tell her not Read the Rest…

Ow, my ankle!

Seems me and walking a whole bunch don’t get along too well. Every night, my feet have hurt pretty immensely. But yesterday I started to notice that my ankle had begun to swell. It didn’t really hurt much, so I let it go for a while. We walked to tons of temples. Two in particular Read the Rest…

Welcome to Kyoto

We left the hostel in Tokyo at about 9 AM yesterday morning. The only problem with that was that our Shinkansen didn’t arrive until 2 PM. We got to the station at something like 11 AM, and I asked the guy at the station if our tickets were okay, and he looked at me like Read the Rest…
