[Sailor Moon Crystal] Episode 8

Screenshot 2014-10-18 08.50.02

After two snorefest episodes, Sailor Moon Crystal comes back to smack you in the face with the awesomeness that was present in other ones. As a fan, I am allowed to dislike episodes. I am allowed to voice my displeasure. If I say I dislike something, I’m not getting swayed. Unless if it’s in the case of Homestuck where I based my opinion of it off the rotten apples of the fandom. [EVERY FANDOM HAS THEM, DON'T EVEN FUCKING GO THERE. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT EXCUSING THEIR SHITTY BEHAVIOR.] I have since learned that you cannot do that. Experience something for yourself before you form an opinion of it. As such, I now enjoy the damn comic, but we’re not about Homestuck now…

TL;DR: I can hate episodes, do not defend the episode. I’m still going to hate it. Got it? Good.

If this is the first time you’re actually tuning in to Sailor Moon, I’d recommend you to pass this blog post by because I’m about to drop a giant truth bomb that involves some of the characters. Don’t like spoilers? RUN. THE. FUCK. AWAY. NOW. But in the same vein, if you watched the episode, you MAY be able to put two and two together by some of the dialog exchanged.

And just as aside, if you noticed, I don’t screen cap the entire episode. I leave a huge chunk of it out. Because I want people to actually watch the episode rather me doing all the work for you. :PP

Hate to break it to you QB, but there’s a lot more. Unfortunately, you won’t be around to see those.

Truth bomb time: No she’s not.

Cue Usagi’s “OH NO, SHE’S HOT.” moment. If you don’t support Bisexual Usagi, please get off my blog. Kidding, really. Everybody’s allowed to have their own opinions of a character. [SO MUCH ABOUT OPINIONS TODAY, KITTY!]

Nope.

Mr. Who Has Legs For Days, you stop that. You stop looking hot in your glasses. STOP IT. UGH. /glassesfetish

Luna, you failed as a mom. Usagi’s talking to boys already.

But Artie saves the day and says that you in fact, did not fail. Now let’s frick and create Diana.

Too much of a spoiler? Oh well.

Until next time!!

[UNBOXING] Love With Food October 2014

OH HEY. It’s an unboxing video! I figured I would jump on the bandwagon and record my own unboxing videos now. They seemed like to be a ton of fun. [and it honestly was!] I was a little nervous though because I hardly post public YouTube videos, but I figured what the hell! Let’s have fun with it.

For this unboxing video, I tore into the Love With Food October 2014 “Monster Mash” box and overall, I am happy with the selection. The lowdown with Love with Food is that it’s a snack subscription box that gives back! For every box you receive, a meal gets donated to a needy child. You can learn more about the company’s goal here.

Love With Food snacks are free of all the “crap” [high fructose corn syrup, GMOs, artificial colors/flavors, etc.] and there’s also a Gluten-Free box available for those with allergy or sensitivity to gluten.

You can learn about the different boxes here.

I received a free Tasting Box from Arielle‘s referral link and the Tasting Box gives you about 8 snacks to try for $10 a month [plus $2 shipping in some areas.] One meal will go to a child. The bigger Deluxe box gives you more snacks and two meals are donated to a child.

If you don’t have time / don’t feel like listening / watching me make a complete arse of myself, here’s the box in photographic glory:

My @lovewithfood box is here! Can't wait to crack it open. Stay tuned. Unboxing video tomorrow! #lovewithfood

I won’t be doing reviews of the products here, but I will be posting them on the LWF website! :D

To try your own Love With Food box for free [with possible $2 shipping..], feel free to click this here link or poke the banner in my sidebar.

Legal Jargon: All thoughts and opinions are my own. Love With Food did not monetarily compensate nor ask me for this blog post. I have done it of my accord with the box I received free from being referred.

 

[Sailor Moon Crystal] Episode 7

So here we are with Part 2 of last week‘s episode. A lot of people were expecting this to be Minako’s episode BUT Mr. Who Has Legs For Days is special and gets two episodes for his identity [because you know, Usagi has the entire series..]

While this episode was a little better than last week’s, it didn’t get exciting until the end. There were some pretty funny parts though. I’ll get into those in a bit.

Usagi wakes up and starts doing the math to figure out Tuxedo Mask’s citizen identity and when she does she’s like OMG. WHY?!?

The episode goes on with Mamoru explaining that his parents died when they got into a car accident and he was the sole survivor of a car careening off a cliff. Because of the injuries he sustained during the accident, it caused him to lose all his memory and he’s not even sure if he’s Chiba Mamoru.

Mr. Legs Who Go On For Days. I found this amusing as hell.

CREEPER ANIME DUDE. Everybody knows when a dude is drawn in this way he’s being creepy as hell….

And it just gets funnier as it goes on. Oh, Usagi…

The only one tipped off by the shady DVD store was Rei, it went completely over everyone’s heads. I’m surprised that they didn’t include something with Rei telling them about it but instead had Sailor V doing it….huh.

The last inner senshi gets a bit of screen time by kicking ass and taking names as she should. Next week is her full episode and I’m excited! These past two episodes have been “MEH!” and I’m hoping with Minako’s episode it starts getting interesting again.

Until next time!

[YGM] ThinkGeek

It’s been some time since I did a YOU’VE GOT MAIL! post and that’s because I’ve mostly been getting things that fall under the review category. I was originally scheduled to receive this order today, but UPS surprised me and said that they were in my area and would be delivering yesterday! Woot woot. An early package is always appreciated, right?

This was the first time I actually ordered from ThinkGeek and was very happy with that decision. I usually just window shop because they got some awesome awesome products.

The shipping box is rather geeky with robots and the company logo on the top flaps, telling you to “join in and geek out!” Geeking out is fun, right? Right. On the inside flaps is the ThinkGeek [mascot?] monkey’s face. Inside the box ThinkGeek has your ordered products [obviously.] packing slip and a coupon for your next order. The coupon I got expires at the end of the month and highly doubt I’m going to use it that fast.

There was a Twitter update printed on the packslip which amused me [and sadly, the actual username doesn't exist. I tried.]

My collection of FunkoPOP! vinyl figurines begins…

2014-10-03 14.16.41

I also ordered myself the Plants vs Zombies Singing Sunflower and she informs me that there are zombies on my lawn and that we in fact, do not want them there…

Here’s a video of my friend singing to me! :D

This order wouldn’t have been possible without the giveaway hosted by Mama Needs Mana, so thank you so much Neri! :D

 

Hello, October!

I cannot believe that September up and left us so quickly. I suppose time flies when you’re having fun doing the 30 Days of Lists challenge, I suppose! :D You may have noticed I changed my social media buttons. Hopefully it makes it a bit easier to figure what button goes to what profile. Feel free to follow me on any platform you wish. :3 I purchased them from IntricateElephant on Etsy if one was curious.

I have a few exciting things happening in October:

  • Love With Food October Box – I got a chance to do a trial run of the Love With Food snack subscription box thanks to Arielle [Watch her YT Channel dudes, she's amazing.] and my first box arrives some time in the next two weeks. I am excited! Love With Food sends you 8-10 organic snacks and in turn donates a meal to a needy child. I’ll be talking about that more once the box comes in [and might do my first-ever UNBOXING VIDEO.] I’ve set up a badge on my sidebar if you want to try it out and get your first box free! :D
  • ThinkGeek Giveaway Win! – Yesterday I won a ThinkGeek GC from Mama Needs Mana, so naturally I went shopping. Stay tuned for the haul. ;33
  • New Jersey Devils Hockey Regular Season – October 9th starts the regular season of my favorite sport EVER. I also have tickets for the October 24th game, so expect a blog post like March’s game.
  • Final Fantasy XIII’s PC Release – I pre-ordered this as soon as Steam allowed. I am fully ready to have my feelings destroyed once again and take a shitload of screenshots of Fang because I have zero shame. It also releases on the 9th.
  • Halloween! – The one day a year being a cosplayer isn’t half bad because being in costume isn’t weird this day. I’m not sure if I have Trick or Treat duty with my niece and nephew again this year, but if I do I will probably cosplay Nepeta without the paint.

I think that’s all the fun stuff going on, but if I think of anything else I’ll add it later. The not-so fun stuff going on this month is lab work, but hey, it’s a step towards getting myself on anti-anxiety meds so I’ll suck up getting stabbed in the arm.
