AKA National Novel Writing Month. It's a program where you have the entire month of November to write a 50,000 word novel. Some get picked up, most don't. It's a big challenge. I joined, and I encourage you to as well!

2 Things

1st, my friend has started a blog about HIS life. It's not as cool as mine, but whatever. Link.

My review of all my favorite web comics.

Awkward Zombie
This is a comedy done via video games, and it is hilarious. Many times she replaces the main character with herself, Katie. Her art is good, and her writing is funny. Not much to say with this one. 9/10

I...really don't know how to describe this. It's like a comedic-dramatic-fantasy-racing comic. Yeah. Basically, Heaven is a LITERAL bureaucracy, and one angel there is high as my friend with a blog, and misfiles two people's shit. He gets kicked down to Earth until further notice for being high (NOT for misfiling, he hid the files so no one knows.), and finds the results of his mistake. Ash's file was moved from boy to girl, making everyone but him/her think he/she had always been a girl, and actually being one. Two pages of Emily's file were hidden, making her two years younger with the same reality-altering effects. Now they're pissed and won't stop until he gets their lives back to normal. Won't spoil beyond that, good writing and art, and I love the characters. 8/10.

Sorcery 101
Easy as hell to describe. It's a comedy/drama fantasy about a guy learning magic from a werewolf while teaching high school. It's funny, well drawn, and the characters are incredibly memorable, especially Seth. An underlooked series, it easily deserves a 8/10.

I can only use the writers own words to describe this: "A webcomic of Romance, Sarcasm, Math, and Language." A very humble description for a great comic. Basically a joke a day newspaper strip, but made by the biggest nerd/geek hybrid I've ever seen. A percentage of the jokes go over EVERYONE'S head, so don't worry when you see one you don't get. However, if you actually read my blog, you'll get a large amount too. Hilarious, and made of win. 9.5/10

Brawl in the Family
 This is a lot like XKCD, except replace nerd and geek jokes with Nintendo jokes. This is really only for Nintendo fans, as all of the jokes are aimed in that area. As a HUGE 'tendo dork, I laugh consistently at it. The multi-part stories are always great, and it is general a wonderful experience. 9/10

El Goonish Shive
Ah, now this one is special. It was the first webcomic I ever read, my favorite by far, and the hardest to explain. It's weird. REALLY WEIRD. And there's no explanation I can give that will make any sense. All I can say is this for those starting: A)The art improves over time. A LOT. B)While it sometimes gets really serious, it always returns to comedy soon thereafter. It isn't a fantastic webcomic. The art starts of terrible, there are plot holes abound, and for those in a certain mindset, the characters suck. So why do I love it so? 2 reasons. 1)It makes me laugh. A lot. Nothing has ever made me laugh at times as much as this does. 2)I love the characters. Tedd and Nanase and Susan and Sarah and...everyone. So I must give two ratings. QUALITY=8/10. LOVE=10/10 Laters.

New Things Coming Tomarrow

Basically the reason I haven't posted in 2 months requires merely 1 word: college. Seriously, who know that it required work? So I really haven't been doing much, geek wise. Plowing through A Feast for Crows, finished Doctor Who New, starting Torchwood, then Doctor Who Old. Reading some interesting fanfiction, webcomics, and blogs. So really, I've just been too lazy to post. So sue me. Oh, and just in case some future projects actually happen, this blog is in no universe with anything I do. So if you see a vlog or something with me as a character, that is me playing a character. Sorry, but this blog is and always will be OOC. No being hijacked by proxies or anything. So tomorrow, a very large post coming, hopefully one someone actually likes. Another reason I find it hard to post is that it seems no one reads this but me and my friends. But then I realized, "Fuck it. It feels good to type this shit out." So...yeah. Laters.

Rink Rats Review

Another review of a fanfiction, though this time with much less vitriol. Have you ever seen a 80's or early 90's sports movie? Well imagine one done with Roller Derby, and the characters of Avatar the Last Airbender. I'll wait a second for your brains to stop frying from awesomeness.

Good? Cool. Done by hoshizora, this fic is made of epic win. the characters are all adapted well, and no one is horribly OOC. It's the story of Sokka, who works at his father's skate shop, falling head-over-heels in love with the head of a local roller derby team, Suki. It follows his attempts to woo her by hanging out with their derby team. It is really funny, incredibly cool, and overall well done. My only gripe is that it is only half-done, with a trailer for the next half, which should have come out a year ago. So basically, it's dead. Still, it is well worth a read, and I highly recommend it to all. Link, and laters.

First post of many-The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

I have been looking forward to this movie for years now, and I cannot explain in words the amount of joy this film brings me. Want a plot synopsis? Too bad. Watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, seasons 1 and 2, then this. And yes, I still like the second season. Go bitch about Endless Eight somewhere else. I L-O-V-E this movie. No explanations needed. This is the geekiest, nerdiest, heart-wrenching, tension-filled film I've ever seen. Watch it when and where you can, it is worth your money. If you're wondering why I'm not telling you why to see this, it's because I don't want to give a second of it away beforehand. Laters.
