Blackout at the mall today

I went to see TRON with my two friends at the mall today.  It was raining since yesterday, but it wasn't raining cats and dogs so I thought it wouldn't be that bad.  So, got to the theater just in time to see the last half of the previews.  Movie was going and then, at the part where Sam hacks into the company building (at the beginning) and BLACK OUT!  Movie came back on a bit later but with no sound.  So we were watching about 20 minutes without sound.  Then they said that they would start the movie over again.  They got the sound working again.  Then we got the part where Sam is with the 4 girls that were giving him a new wardobe.  Black out again.  Then they said that they were evacuting the theater and giving us free tickets. 

So we walked out and saw that half the mall had suffered a stroke cause half the mall didn't have electricity while the other half did.  Decided to go home afterwards.  Turns out parts of the city around the mall had lost electricity as well.

I hate Research Reports!

Never ever gonna sign up for a class that has a research report again if I can help it!  Anyway, I am almost done with stupid assignment.  Just one more section to go through and then to do the Reference page and then read it once more to make sure everything sounds right and I'm done!

I can't wait until this school quarter is over and I can sleep in my comfortable bed and blanket and not worry about anything!  Did I mention that I also have a midterm tomorrow as well as another paper and report due on Tuesday?  The paper is easy, I'm just lazy to type it up.  It's about my emotional reaction to two plays that I've seen this quarter.  The report due is a Physics report which I will start on when I finish my emotion paper.  As for the midterm, I'm repeating the class due to getting a C- so I'm not all that worried about it.  I'm just worried about naming compounds the systematic way since I kinda suck at it.

And then it's Thanksgiving break!  Mash potatoes and ham....mmmmmmm...yummy....!  Then finally, it's the last week of school and the week following that is Finals week.  I wished the CSU system had a dead weak to allow us to study like the UC systems does...

Anywho, I can't believe that I'm posting! XP

Everyone in the US, have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!

Around the corner

Thanksgiving is around the corner, which in turns means for us Quarterly college students that Finals is also around the corner.  So here I am typing this post instead of finishing my 10 page Toxicolgy report to turn in next week for extra credit.  Just kidding, I'm really multitasking.  I'm halfway done with my paper so I can procastinate a little.

Anyway, I just saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 this morning.  Apparently, Kranz (a middle school) thought it is appropriate to allow it's students to skip school to go on a field trip to see Harry Potter.  While it's entertaining, I don't think Harry Potter has anything to do with a school curriculum.  Anyway, it was a good movie.  They chose a good spot to stop as well.  I can't wait to see the final fight!

Capcom's Ustream of SDCC

First, I would like to say "Thank you to Capcom" for ustreaming their booth at this year's San Diego Comic Con.  Even though I'm tired of seeing MvC3 fighting matches (but I would still like to play it even I suck), I had a blast watching the Ustream.  Congrats to all the winners of the tournaments, winners of ustream contests (which unfortunately, I didn't win anything, but that's ok, I still had a blast), and those that went and got what they wanted (Niitsuma's autograph, Inafune's autograph, etc).

I would like to give a shout out to Joveth (aka jgonzo) and Shawn (aka Snow) for being our host, John D for his awesomeness, Vince, Emily, the girl that was with her (forgot your name, sorries), Megaran, Bear McCreary, Capcom Europe's guy (your name eludes me as well, sorry) and Stan Press (astrograming) for chilling with us and answering our questions etc, Seth, Marn, and Justin for commentating matches, and finally, all the producers/directors/writers (Niitsuma, Ono, Inafune, Ito, Takumi,Takeshita, Eshiro, and Kobayashi) for for taking their time to come to SDCC and do an interview with Capcom-Unity and signing that awesome board that some Unity member won or will win.  Also, to Niitsuma-san, you were awesome.  Your interview was great.  You did like what? An interview each day? XD

There were a lot of memorable moments on the ustream, but my favorite was when Stan was taking requests for saying "XXXX" in his Russian accent.  After semi-spamming my comment, Stan finally said, "Since ShadowNeko has been spamming this for a while...It's over 9000!!!"  My nephew and I (I was up in San Jose for the time being) burst in laughter.  It was just soooo funny.  SNOW WHY DIDN'T YOU RECORD THAT HOUR?!! XD  Anyway, that part made up for not winning anything. =D

A big thanks to the mods that kept in piece.

Oh and I saw a recently made friend (from E3) give a shout out to my nephew and his friend.  Hi Gerald!  Another good thing also came from the chat room.  I met Mono626, who just happened to live in the same city I currently live in. =D

Anyway, I had blast.  Thanks for setting up the Ustream Capcom! <3  And I hope you guys come to next year's San Diego Comic Con cause I'm planning to attend.  See ya!

I found this while browsing the Power Rangers Shinkenger thread over at HJU and thought I post it here.

I think it's very nicely done.  (Damn timestamp....)

E3 2010 day 1 summary

E3 2010 has come and gone.  I like to take this opportunity to gave a shout out to Capcom, who held a contest for E3 3 day badges, THANK YOU!  I LOVE CAPCOM!

There, now that that's settle, Onward! Defosted Tuna Team! (XD, hint Star Ocean 3)

I had a couple of friends that attended as well.  And we had a BLAST!  Interesting story, at the Capcom booth, they decided to rig the MvC3 game to get a t-shirt, since the winner of 5 rounds gets MvC 3 shirt.  And they did it.  (Note, I wasn't involved.)

Day 1
The first booth I went to was none other than Capcom.  One because I wanted to meet and thank them, and two I was at West Hall and the booth was stationed right at the entrance.  I played some Dead Rising 2 and MvC 3.  There was a live zombie from Dead Rising 2 there as well.  Needless to say, I couldn't figure out how to switch characters in MvC3 (it was a fight stick), but that's ok.  I'm not that good with fighting games anyway.  I decided to skip Nintendo for the day since the line was super long for the 3DS and headed to the Sony booth.  I played some Killzone 3, and let's just say I also suck at that as well.  But I got a t-shirt for playing.  And it was made by American Apparel too! =]  I wondered around West Hall, got this huge bag from this Chinese booth and the Nyko bag as well.  My friend Quoc and I went to play this guitar and drum game that escaped my mind right now and we got a shirt for that.

Afterward, we wondered into South Hall and wondered around playing the games.  At Square Enix, I tried out Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and the Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light.  Both were good.  We also meet Tomonobu Itagaki (pic at right) at the SEGA Booth. =] The Mafia II line was short; however, it took forever.  This one guy crashed the system and they resetted it and he played again.  The guy that played the game before Quoc must have did something to the right analog stick (360) cause whe Quoc played, he couldn't control the camera. XD We went walking around and ended up at Disney's booth.  Got a pic taken at Toy Story 3.  Quoc played TRON while I watch this guy do a painting.  We walked around a little bit more, played some more demos, and by then it was already 5ish pm.  We got tired and went outside to sit down.

Pictures are uploaded onto Photobucket

I'm kinda lazy right now to add comments to them, but you can read the comments that I've added on Facebook.  Just search ShadowNeko003.

Day 2 summary will come later.

E3 2010

Capcom is having a party tonight; however, I feel the joy of being born in the Fall.  (aka I'm a few months short of 21.)  But anyway, I can't wait until tomorrow!  THANK YOU CAPCOM!!!

So I was having a bad day with drinks today. 

This morning I place my jamba juice on top of my car as I was getting my keys out of my pocket, the drink fell down and some of it spilled on my jacket.  Then when I get to school, I saw that the fall had made a dent in the cup and now it was leaking.  So I had to go get another cup at the coffee shop in school.

Fast forward to 4pm.  I brought a soda with the money in my pocket.  I then realized that I left my wallet in my car, so I had to go down 2 flights of stairs, grab my wallet, and then head to class.  When I got to class, I opened my soda, and all the foam went out.  I was having a bad day with drinks.  So, I cleaned up the mess and then class begun.

After class was over, I went home.  I checked my email...and to my surprise, something amazing happened!  What happened?  I'm not gonna tell you yet (unless you're one of the people that I already told, don't tell anyone until I confirm it) but I will reveal what the surprise was in due time.  All I can say was that I've never gone to this event before (there's a hint, an event that I've never ever been to) and that I wasn't expecting (meaning that I was absolutely sure that I wouldn't be chosen, and I even stated it in my submission, I guess I got super lucky that I made post # XXX or that they thought I should go, but whatever).  I was totally shaking when I read email.  I was like "OMFG!"  I sent a reply right away.

Now, I GONNA STUDY MY ASS OFF to pass my class and go to side event.

According to USGS website, a major earthquake occurred at 3:40:41 PM (PDT) on Sunday, April 4, 2010.
The magnitude 7.2 event occurred 26 km (16 miles) SW of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California, Mexico.
The hypocentral depth is 10 km ( 6 miles).

I was at the dinner table study and some what procrastinating.  Then I felt it.  At first, I was like "Is the vase (on the table) moving?" After staying still and staring at the vase for a few seconds,  I immediately knew it was an earthquake.  Nothing major happened where I live (LA county)

Twilight Graphic Novel

I’m a some what Twi fan, not a crazy fan, but just a simple person that read the series and thought that Kristen needs more acting classes. I don’t like all the crazy hype and crazy stories that happened because of Twilight. Those people should get a life. Twilight is NOT perfect! It is the opposite of perfect, but heck, I think it was a somewhat decent read. There are other books that are WAY better than Twilight. (And I’ve read other books from classics like To Kill a Mockingbird to the Kenyon’s Dark Hunters series to Feehan’s Dark series to Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series to Anthony’s Xanth series, etc).

I just finished reading the graphic novel (cover left) a few hours ago. I like this version more than the book. It was simple, straight to the point, and I didn’t have to listen to Bella’s over thinking. For those that are wondering, it runs from the beginning to the screen where Edward runs with Bella on his back in the meadow. On the artist’s note, really good artwork.

Yes, I’d rather see Harry Potter turned into a graphic novel. But I have to say this, I’d rather had Twilight than the High School Musical graphic novel.

To those that trash Kim, get a clue. It’s a job that food on the table. In this economy, you’d be grateful to have a job.
