How to make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Posted in All Blogs with tags , , , , on October 12, 2008 by Mao

I’m so fuckingly dyingly frustratingly fucking HUNGRY. And my tummy can use a good ol’ Grilled Cheese Sandwich :D

But guess what?
No I can’t!
Coz I don’t have any bread, nor cheese.

LULZ!

But I can feast my eyes on pictures right?

Equally as evil as Jailbaits

Equally as evil as Jail-baits

So to feed on my fantasy, I’m making a step-by-step on…

HOW TO MAKE A GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH

You will need…
2 pieces of bread
CHEESE, any kind and as much as you want
Butter
and a Pan.

1. Start your fire! (reeelight mah fiiiire!~)
2. Put butter on pan.
3. As it starts to melt swirl it around your pan.
4. Put one slice of bread into the pool of butter.
5. It should look fucking good.
6. Put cheese on top.
7. As the cheese starts to melt, put the second piece of bread on top of cheese.
8. Once the buttered-side of bread is nice and brown, Flip it!
9. Do the same for other side.
10. If you want to, you can re-butter your pan.
11. If you think both sides are well done, use a spatula and squeeze the toast down.
12. Stop fire.
13. Slide it onto plate, and leave it to cool a little.

13. is especially important! If not followed properly, this misson can end in a naaasty way.

Yes, this is what melted cheese can do to you (from personal experience). And with a burnt hand, you will most likely be rushing to a hospital, thus no Grilled Cheese Toast for you! :[

14. Once you have let it cool down for 20 seconds (you don’t want it completely cold, as you’ll not be able to achieve the stringy cheese effect), slice it diagonally.

I repeat, DIAGONALLY!
Or else you’ll unlock the 6th door of Hell, with side-affects of meteor shower or an apocalypse.

15. You are done!

FUUUUCK, I seriously need GCS D:

Stay tuned for my very useful, intelyjent and awesome how-to for Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich!

Nightwing #149

Posted in All Blogs, Comics, Nightwing with tags , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2008 by Mao

As expected, this issue was A-MAZING!

The basic plot (and spoiler) is that Nightwing fights against all of Batman’s famous rogues gallery, which were created by Scarecrow’s fear serum. The fear serum was injected in prior issue, which was coated on a bullet Two-Face used to shoot at poor Nightwing :(
… lots of drama-lama,… Nightwing’s too late to save Carol; who gets shot by Two-Face.

rofl.

Nightwing fails once again.
PHAIL!

Anyway, this issue had tons of Kill Bill-esque ultra violence.
Which I thought was pretty damn cool :]

But I didn’t really dig the art too much.
I’ve seen better, and it should’ve defiantly been better since it’s an amazing issue.

I’m trying my very hardest to get her into American Comics, because that’ll mean she’s buy tons of TPBs! … which I’ll get to read :]

On with the post…

… maybe,… just maybe, he should leave the jokes to Joker.
There’s a link with the death of Jason Todd, which gives this issue another brownie point.

Ahhh~, and this issue’s pretty touching too :'[ Because of the serum, Nightwing’s seeing things, and in one of his delusions he sees his parents falling. But Nightwing saves them in a nick of time, and says…

[I’m sorry I can’t be butt-fucked to scan this…]

“Is this my mom and dad holding tight to me? No. Of course not. But it sure feels good to be together again even if it’s only a figment of my imagination”

Baaaaaw D:
I bet he’s gonna get hooked to drugs after this.

And yea, Carol gets owned.

blah blah blah,,,
After Two-Face, Harvey, found out she died, he goes on a bitch-fit and shouts that Nightwing was supposed to save her from his alter ego.

… :/
Didn’t like the ending of the issue too much. It continues onto #150 of Nightwing’s crossover with Batman R.I.P., which might I add that there’s barely any links with thus far.

*****

omg guys, I just wanted to add; Thanks for viewing my blog! :D
On 2nd October I had my highest view of 210, which motivates me to keep on mindless-blogging! And the awesome thing is that I enjoy doing this, so yay for me (and maybe you) xD

<3~!

The moment of relief; Nightwing!

Posted in All Blogs, Nightwing with tags , , , , on October 1, 2008 by Mao

It has been rumoured that Nightwing was getting cancelled after #150!

Only recently picking up his series, as it was the right timing to join the bandwagon!, I was pretty bummed.

But yea, a sigh or relief after seeing the cover of #151

Anywayyy,
Checkit!

Nightwing has saved New York City from Two-Face, but that doesn’t mean that he’s saved himself – or that Two-Face is through with him. Nightwing will be forced to confront the madman in Arkham Asylum then face dire changes to his personal life as he deals with the aftereffects of “Batman R.I.P.” and makes the ultimate leap!

And I can’t WAIT till I get my hands on #149 tomorrow; Nightwing vs. all of Batman’s famous rogues! Fucking screwed, but should be uber fun to read!
I’m soooo excited for it, it’s almost schoopid. But can’t help it!
You can download the sneak-peak, but I’m not going too! :D You know why?  Coz I want it to be a surprise! ^_^

I seriously hope it doesn’t turnout crap, and rock-bottom my expectation.

Over and out.

Electric Guitars

Posted in All Blogs, Life with tags , , , , on September 27, 2008 by Mao

Dude, I’m so psyched about getting an Electric Guitar! … which I will in (hopefully) 2 months time. x]
I was planning on picking up an acoustic guitar during the Summer, but it never happened. Makes sense to get an instrument played by your favourite music genres yanno?

I used to find heavy metal music pretty average, nothing too wow about it. Sometimes they all sounded the same. But recently I finally understand why people appreciates it so much!
Fucking amazing guitar riffs! Just shreddin’ it at mad speed, flipping mesmerizing.

I’m planning on getting a Fender Starcaster (& it’s starter package xD), coz I heard it’ a good beginner elec. guitar.

Not the best looking, but as long as it can get me started :)

Lemme point out that I’m absolutely clueless about guitars.
I’ll do my homework before I get one of course.

One of my worst fears after buying the guitar, is not being butt-fucked to play it!
The last instrument I played was the flute… which I quit 2 years ago after playing it for 5 years. Why? Because I wasn’t interested anymore. But with the electric guitar I can play metal, as well as alternative, punk and rock! Yay-ness :D

… but whenever I lose interest, I’m planning on watching this guy’s video,

He’s self taught, wtf!

Just fucking amazing.

I want to be as good as him one day! And play that song too (Are you dead yet? – CoB) xD
I also wanna be able to play Hand of Blood by BFMV and A7X’s Beast and the Harlot. Or whatever song that has mad uber faster riffs. But I’ll probably have to start slow… like Nirvana or something, lol. Hopefully it’s easy as it sounds o.o

It suddenly hit me like a bus… A double-decker bus!

Posted in All Blogs, Life with tags , , , , , , on September 24, 2008 by Mao

My best-friend moved to Canada during the Summer. We didn’t get to say our goodbyes because she found out when she was there, for what she thought was a two-way ticket trip.

It was a lazy Summer afternoon in Hong Kong. I was glazing at the TV screen, at a movie I think… about three brothers on a road trip in india. The phone rang. I rolled off the couch. I got to the phone (which was only 3ft away xD;;) after it’s 4th ring.

“Hello~? =_=;;”
“Hi Mao, it’s Jodi”
“Oh em gee, Hi Jodi! :D How’s Summer there?”
“It’s cool it’s cool… uh- I’m… – staying here.”
“huh?”
“The school here accepted me, so I’m staying here”

I was gonna miss her. Like fuck. But I wasn’t as emotional as I though I’d be. Maybe because I knew beforehand that she applied to a school there? I don’t know.

I was secretly hoping that she wouldn’t get accepted to the new school. I didn’t want things around me to change. And after all, she was my best-friend! But then moving might’ve been the best thing for her education, since the new diploma we were starting wasn’t suited for her.

I was also secretly hoping that she would get accepted. Maybe it was time for a change? Open my eyes to the other people at school, because we were like milk and cereal, we were always together. She might’ve been like a safety blanket for me.

The new school year started on the 21st August, everyone got their GCSE results back. During our exams we were planning when to open it; in school, on the cab or at home. But she wasn’t there when the time came.

Anyway, I’m doing great at school. The first day was awkward because Jodi wasn’t there, but I had my other friends around me. :) But sometimes during the lull I would think to myself “It would be so much fun if Jodi was around…”

I do love my friends! But you see, they aren’t on the same wave-length as me. Not like Jodi. We’d discuss about Internet-celebs, hair, cosplay, our “history”, sex stuff etc. But most of my friends don’t get it, aren’t interested or grossed out.
Jodi and I dressup in these awesome clothes, and walked around the city. We make these stupid videos and post ’em on Youtube. We take the most amazingest sticker pictures!

We got our lips pierced together.
She was my refuge when I got kicked out from my home.
I dyed my hair for the first time at her place.
We cried like little bitches together xD
We went to councelling together.
We gave people mean nicknames.
She made me open-minded, or what other people may mistake as “constant hornyness”
And we both love cheese :)

Just now I suddenly realized I won’t be able to do those awesome things anymore.

So who was driving this double-decker bus that hit me?

Fucking hell, Youtube! That’s right, Youtube!
I went on to my Youtube favourites, and just watched the videos we made coz I was bored.

Everything suddenly soaked into me. Dawned upon me. I felt my windpipes tighten, chest rising, and a heavy sigh was the answer.

I feel like sucha bad person.

We lost contact. I know her e-mail and all that jazz, but we don’t talk anymore. I sent her an e-mail, but no reply. I’m not on msn when she is because of time zone. We seriously haven’t talked to each other for a whole month!

Last time I talked to her she said she’s coming back next Spring. I seriously can’t wait! I hope she comes back earlier tho, maybe like for Christmas.

I’m doing a Chloe Sullivan!

Yes, I joined my school’s journalism group for their online magazine!

And guess what? I get to do whatever I want; blogging or podcast. Blogging fer sho!

Much to my geekery, my first article if on American (Superhero) Comics! and my very hard attempt to try getting more people reading it. :)

Please feel free to point out at gramatical mistakes, or rephrase some sentences.
(it’s not published yet)

American Comics,
… not just for fat men with orange-stained Cheetos fingers.

Let’s face it, most of you will stereotype American comic book readers as either obese or skinny guys, who live in their mother’s basement and are 40 year old virgins. But after the recent flood of movie adaptations of comic books, the younger generations are now more familiar with superheroes such as; Ironman, Hulk, Batman, Hellboy etc.

What about those heroes still stuck in monthly issues?

Most non-comic book readers are still unfamiliar with characters that are considered as major characters by readers, such as Nightwing. Don’t know Nightwing? He’s Dick Grayson. Still doesn’t ring a bell? He’s the first of Batman’s protégés! Right now, Batman’s up to Robin number three.

What got me interested in comic books, namely DC Comics, was the in-depth character history. American comics are more like soap operas, and don’t have a concrete storyline, so it has all the time in the world for characterization.

Let’s use Dick Grayson as an example. People who have read Detective Comics since the 1940s would know him since he was Robin: wearing green-scaled underwear and fighting crime with Batman while shouting “Goly Gee Batman!” But since then he has “grown-up”, picked up a new superhero identity, found his own city to protect, and now leads a team. He also has his own monthly issue series!

If you’re a manga (Japanese comic book) reader, you know what I mean when stories just drag on and never reaches the conclusion! Annoying innit? This never happens in American comic books, because of the reason I mentioned above: it’s like The Bold and the Beautiful, without the whole load of drama, abortion and your husband coming back alive three years later after what you thought was a fatal snake bite while he was on an expedition in Africa. Furthermore, I bet you’ve wished for a crossover between two different manga titles, just for the sake of wanting to seem them team-up. Well, this happens quite often in American comic books! There are many crossovers within the institutions, as well as out of the institution, for example Justice Society of America (JSA) and DC vs. Marvel.

*****

Maybe superheroes comics aren’t your cup of tea, but don’t let that stop you from reading them.

You like chick-flicks? Try the new series called Spiderman Loves Mary Jane, which is basically about MJ and her high school life. Juggling around school, friends and her relationship with Spidey.

Dear female readers… find yourself your favourite hot superhero, and I guarantee you that you’ll enjoy reading comic book a lot more!

If you’re looking for a superhero comic not as dramatic as Superman, try Runaways. It’s about six teenagers (who thought they had a pretty average life), finding out their parents are super villains, and runs away from home. During their adventure each individual either finds out about their hidden powers, what they really are, or obtain these awesome power gloves that can blast fire. But since they are teenagers, there’re tons of dramas! I’m sure manga readers will love this series, since the art-style is greatly influenced by manga.

And no, they don’t have eyes half the size of their heads.

How about something waaay more realistic? Then checkout Marvel’s recent title called Kick-Ass. It’s rated mature for violence, but I’m sure Year 11+ can handle it. It’s basically about a high school comic-geek becoming a vigilante. But it’s not your average success story. He gets severely beaten up by gangs and gets into a whole load of trouble.

Want something with more flare and Tarantino-esque? Grab a copy of Young Liars! It’s institution is Vertigo (which goes under DC Comics’ umbrella) because of it’s rating. So much like Tarantino’s movie, I can only recommended it to mature readers or Upper school students. But it’s an amazing read, and I can go as far as saying it’s one of the best series I’ve read.

*****

I’m sure you’re wondering where you can purchase these comics. If you’re looking for trade paperbacks (TPB), which are basically 6/7 issues put together, you should be able to find/order it at any bookstore. But beware, major cooperates are out to rape your wallets! They will most likely charge $20 more than the original price.

This is when the dingy little comic book stores’ awesomeness comes in!They don’t charge any additional price, and you can order TPBs too. But the fallback is that the stores are really hard to find, and super tiny. So far I’ve only found two stores, which happens to be in the same building…

Sugar Street is right behind Windsor House, the building with Toys R Us.
