To all EU citizens on this page, there's currently a survey on whether or not having summer/winter time is a good thing or not... It's only up until tomorrow, so I thought I'd tell folks...

Summer has rolled around again - as one can see with the awful sunny and hot weather it's got outside, yuck - and as I do every year, I am preparing for a new project...

This year's winner of the fandom lottery (picking one gets more and more difficult) is... *drumroll*...

The X-Men!

Now, the only problem is, I can't decide on just one quote, meaning, I might need some help... What's your favourite inspirational (or uncomfortably true) X-Men quote?

Thanks in advance for your help... :)

Fandom Discussion - The Secret Garden / Ready Player One
« on: April 09, 2018, 08:58:29 PM »
So today I went to an almost empty movie theatre to see Ready Player One (which has only been out over here for three days, so an empty movie theatre is really not a good sign). I don't understand this though, as I thought the movie was great... :)

First of all, I have not read the book, so I am not part of the original fan-base. However, from what I have heard, the book is quite controversial. I cannot speak for movie-book loyalty here (I also have never written a movie rewiew before, but seeing that empty movie theatre just made me want to defend it/ tell people how great it was)...

So, without much further ado, let's try this thing...

The movie starts right off with the 80s references, playing Van Halen's "Jump", which of course already kind of won the movie for me, as I love that song and then "jumps" almost right in with the action. There is a bit of exposition monologuing going on, but I expected that to happen... The pace picks up really quickly after that though, with a car race, which I would love to watch again in slow motion, as the images were just zooming past so quickly and everything seemed to happen all at once. The scene did a great job introducing the characters though, as well as parts of the risks and downsides of playing in the OASIS.

I'd like to not give away too much of the plot, so I'll just say that there are tons of fun and well placed easter eggs throughout this movie about a hunt for an easter egg. I think it is quite amazing that they managed to put in so many of them in there, as the licencing for all of those can't have been cheap.

The soundtrack of course is another win (although it might not be, if you ablsolutely hated the 80s, but I'm writing this and I love them, so I'm winning this...).

Basically, if you like Sci-fi and don't hate the pop-cultural stuff that was created in the 80s, you should definitely check out this movie, as I said before, I enjoyed the hell out of this movie, it was fun, the action was great and the soundtrack, well, let's just say "Staying Alive" is glorious...

Anyways, this concludes my ramblings... If you've already seen the movie, I'd love to discuss it and chat, so let me know what you thought of it... :)

The Exile’s Lament

I am running for my life,
I am running to survive,
And I hope I find a haven,
In the universe ahead.

I remember the bombs
When they rained from the sky,
And I’m leaving behind,
Where forever you will lie.


I remember the fires,
They devoured the land,
For the heat has been rising,
Through man’s own hand.


I remember the poison,
In the water and air,
And the governments were certain,
That their war was fair.


I remember diseases,
They ravaged the towns,
Driving young and old,
Six feet under the grounds.


I remember the hunger,
When the food got rare,
For the fields and the meadows,
Had a long time been bare.


I remember the water,
It rose with the heat,
Drowning all those who were left,
And flooding every street.


I’m the last of my kind,
My ship sails into space,
For I can’t stay any longer,
I must leave this place.


Global warming and wars,
Brought disaster and dread,
While we stood there in denial,
And now the Earth is dead.


Now without any aim,
I’m without a place to be,
I can never return,
For the Earth has exiled me.

I am a murderer. My hands are covered in the blood of thousands. A thousand tales that will never be told, a thousand words that will forever remain unwritten, a thousand songs that will always remain unsung. They are dead before my eyes. It was I who destroyed them. It was me. I am their murderer.

My hands are stained to show my horrendous deed. The staind are everywhere. They are covering the pages in front of me, dripping off the desk and seeping into the fabric of my clothes.And I know what I have to do. If only, I would stop putting it off so many times:

I have got to buy a new pen.

Mine has been leaking ink for the past six months. It's getting ridiculous now. There is ink everywhere and it's a waste of paper and tissues and my patience is waining. This needs to stop. I have spilt my entire cartridge again. And the precious ink is lost forever now.

The royal-blue blood of stories, the marine-blue blood of life, the midnight-blue blood of everything I held onto in times of grief and I have spilt it. All those stories I might have written, I now watch seeping into my notebook. I will not write them now. I cannot write them now. I have to get a new pen first.

I know it's not Halloween, but there's a moon outside my window that is looking at me very menacingly, so I just felt like writing this...


Through the window shining bright,
Gleams the moon into the night.
And with torment, pain and ache,
An ancient curse keeps me awake.

Howling, cursing at the moon,
Wishing it was over soon,
Every full moon is the same,
On each one I curse my name.

Pills and potions can't help me,
From this pain I can't be free.
Blooded red is my demise,
When the dreaded moons arise.

On such nights I toss and turn,
When did I this torment earn?
And on mornings I do fear,
I have done some damage here.

I do wonder what I've done,
That warrants what I have become.
Why the Gods do punish me,
I will never truely see.

Understanding is not all,
The rising full moons still do call.
And so I'll howl and curse all night,
At a full moon shining bright.

Hi everyone... I'm... well, someone, but I'm still trying to find out who that is exactly... Will let you know when I find out (although that might take a while...) I'm not sure if I can contribute a lot to the gaming sector of this page, since the only computer game I've been any good at up to this point has been Skyrim (although I think I'm moderately good at it by this point), but I'll try to learn...  :)
I do a lot of writing in my spare time, mostly along the lines of poetry or fairy tales, with occasional dabbles in other genres... And I have what you might consider a slightly unhealthy obsession with a bunch of things, among which are Shakespeare, Greek mythology, Star Wars, Harry Potter, ASOIAF and Doctor Who and I'm pretty sure those are only half of them...
I've always wanted to be a witch, so I also do a lot of dabbling in healing potions, herbs and traditional medicine and I've done some readings on poisons, but I'm not planning on ever using those, I just feel that knowledge is always something that it is better to have than to lack and you never know what you might use it for...
Hope you all have a great start into 2018... :)
