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.

Geeks: at the Speed of Light

Posted in All Blogs, Comics, DC Comic, Marvel, Nightwing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2008 by Mao

I swear,… some comic book geeks are FAST.
Maybe they have a personal Transporter. Maybe a special ability, like Deep Tunnel. Or just maybe some are meta-humans and are speedsters.

I DON’T BLOODY KNOW!

The last two (uno y dos) blog entries I made has me being uberly excited about the release of Nightwing #147.

God, I was SO excited.

In Hong Kong, new comics are released on a Thursday. But on Wednesday a typhoon came and all business were closed. So this week, new comics were released on a Friday.

On Friday night I went to my comic book store. Skipping with awesomeness as I was getting closer. When I get there I found out that Nightwing #147… WAS SOLD OUT!
I was like “oh… it’s okay, I’m chill. I’ll go checkout the other store”
The other place is just two storey down, so I fast walked there not only to find out that it was SOLD OUT as well.

I was/am majorly pissed off.

There are only two comic book stores in Hong Kong, and Nightwing #147 was SOLD OUT at both places. They said they’re gonna re-order, and will be here in 2 weeks.
I’m so tired of waiting.

See, I went to the store at 8pm. Both stores opens at around 3pm. So it 5 hours ALL copies of Nightwing #147 that existed in Hong Kong were sold out. Bloody hell, how is that possible!!!
Maybe I need a higher level of geekiness to have my own teleporter!

TEACH ME HOW TO GRIND FOR MORE EXP PL0X!

ugh…

./rant

But on the awesome side I found The Flash #228, which is a crossover with Nightwing! I have yet to read it x]
I also bought Marvel’s Kick-Ass #3, which I was planning to buy after reading it’s summary on Marvel’s site… And I thought the summary was exaggerated, but gosh, it’s totally AWESOME!

Kick-Ass is about a comic book fan (v. geeky) who decides to dress-up as a superhero to fight crime. But the cool part is that it’s set in this world, so no superheroes exists! And it’s fairly realistic; the main character gets beaten-up shitless and does good deeds to get laid.
Anyway, he gets super interweb famous after he posts a video of himself fighting muggers.

And he gets free boobies!

Kick-Ass #3 ends with him getting beaten up by people who he tries to “set things straight” with. And enter!, a nine year old girl who duel wields katanas! … and she pretty much saves his ass.

Mmm~, gotta love ultra violence!

Even though this was the first issue of Kick-Ass I have picked up, it was easy to catchup and an enjoyable read! VERY enjoyable. So pick up an issue, because you won’t regret it! :)

<3!

…ohohoh, and duuuude! The second store I went to, which isn’t my usual comic book store, gave me a free badge!
It has Lex Luthor on it, and says “VOTE LEX 2000”. I can pin it onto my school bag :3
Hah, I’m so going back there for more freebies!

Now, lets talk about My Favourite Comics.

I started WordPress 3 days ago. I already have 5 blog entries.

But not once have I talked about my favourite Superhero… yet

I will, now.

THE FLASH!

Most under-rated Superhero ever!

Who is he?
The Flash, duh. The Fastest Man Alive. The Scarlet Speedster. MY FAVOURITE SUPERHERO!

Which Flash is my favourite? WALLY WEST OFCOURSE!
I get so hyped everytime I talk about him.
x]

You might think he looks camp in red fullbody spandex, but the man filling the suit is so lovable! I love the family aspect of him! All the speedsters are somehow connected (by blood or not), and he mentors his own kids to become great superheros! He’s one of the most relatable character in the DCU too, as he was a normal kid, and got his power by pure luck & his power is to run REALLY fast (tap into the SpeedForce!).

I can do what Flash does, he just does it better!

… dat ass!
(God, i love Google)


The Flash’s comics are the only single-superhero comic I read, along with Bart’s run as the Flash and Impulse (Impulse… one-word: LOL!) . The rest of my TPBs are basically team superhero comics.
What can I say, i love Flash!

Hmmm… lets talk about him in cartoons. I do enjoy his cocky, arrogant and flirty persona in the Justice League/Unlimited cartoon series. His one-liners are fuckin’ hilarious! Eventhough that’s more down Elongatedman’s department in the comics, DCAU’s Flash is equally as awesome :) ohoh, and Kid Flash in Teen Titans (cartoon series), thought by many fans to be Wally West too, has such a cute boyish-flirty speedster!
And The Flash in The Batman cartoon series? I only watched one episode with him in it. I heard he’s supposed to be Barry Allen? … and The Flash not being voiced by Michael Rosenbaum was slightly awkward :p

If you love The Flash and haven’t watched JLU nor Teen Titans, watch…
Justice League Unlimited – Flash and the Substance
Teen Titans – Lightspeed

… I guarantee you, that you’ll love it!

and just to make it clear… I do love Batman, Nightwing, Arsenal, Superboy, Gambit etc. But the level of my support and fandom for The Flash will always be a notch higher than them.

One thing I enjoy about Marvel…

Posted in All Blogs, Cartoon, Comics, Gambit and Rogue, Marvel, X-men with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2008 by Mao

First thing first, I’m really happy to know that people out there are viewing my blogs! I thought I was talking to myself, and that I was the only one getting the kickout of my ’em. (Yes, I do believe my blogs pretty awesome)
So thanks!

Second thing… if this is the first time you’re reading my blog, you need to know that I root for DC Comic and I don’t… really like… Marvel. >_< Just not liking the fact that there are more people who knows Marvel, compared to DC.
… and the previous blog which i talked about Marvel (Runaways) got the MOST blog views.

UGHHHH, WHY PEOPLE, WHYYYYY????!!!!!!!!! STOP SEARCHING FOR MARVEL TAGS!

If you like Marvel, then give DC Comics a shot. It’s not all about Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Man, I’m such a hypocrite.

and gee, I’m getting off topic.

So, what I really enjoy about Marvel. You herad that right, what I like about Marvel is…

The Rogue and Gambit coupling!
(Click for bigger)

Marvel fans are going to hate me for saying this, but they are the best thing about Marvel! And being a Gambit fangirl they are the HOTTEST COUPLE EVER!

Gambit was my first ever superhero crush! I was a pre-teen (I’m pretty sure I wasn’t even double-digit y/o), crushing on a bad-boy X-men! I grew up watching the old school X-men cartoon on Sunday mornings (Spiderman and His Amazing Friends was on before X-men. And after X-men, Goosebumps was on!), and one of the biggest reasons I watched X-men back then was to catch Gambit in action.

Wait, that might’ve been the only reason. I didn’t really get the storyline anyway… hah… *laughs*

And the cooler thing is, I thought Rogue was the best female character in it! and I also thought the way she talked was cool :) And I still think she’s one of the more attractive super-heroine.

Years go by, and just recently I found out that Gambit and Rogue are an actual couple! I was so ecstatic! And I paraded around reading tons of Rogue/Gambit fanfictions.
But this didn’t neccesarily mean that I would pick up the X-men comics.
I’m happy with reading fanfics.
:)

Match made in Heaven!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Rogue and Gambit are the best superhero couple out there!
:D

<3!

Edit: Checkout this post for more Gambit goodness. :D
