a) I'm a sophomore? I skipped a grade.
b) Though AP Lang is a junior class, I am a year ahead in English and 2 in Math, so I am taking AP Lang and AP Calculus AB.

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist can come from anywhere."

-Anton Ego/Peter O'Toole (1932-2013)

Oh my, We had this concert at our school. If you know what "discombobulate" mean, then you know that my ears rang after the concert. (ITS STILL HURTS)

anyways, the concert was for new band equipment, the teachers rock n' roll, but they cut it (which made us go BOOO!). the school's band played good, plus we had a special guest.

now, All i need to worry about is family day...

Pokemon TCG rants of the month

During a tournamet last week, I was playing my league leader. She drew her last card in her deck, then an RDL comes out of freaking nowhere like a freaking ninja and murders my Reshiram EX for her last 3 prizes..... AND DONKS ME OUT OF TOP CUT!!!!
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

I plan on trading my bottom half in the future.

Ragepulling a non-FA Mewtwo EX (Used to be an $80 card) to find out that the price dropped $35...
WHYYYYYYYYYYY!

Winning against the #1 junior in rockville in Cities(Who is also my friend) and then losing to a person playing a theme deck in the same Cities.....
It made me look like an idiot.

It made me look like an idiot.

At a pre-release a few weeks ago, my league leader's brother pulled a non FA Mewtwo EX, and sold it for $75.
He then pulled a FA one the next week, at the one I went to, and sold it for $65.
There was a girl at that one too that pulled on, and sold it for $80.
Oh eBay, you troll us too much.

I sold an Arceus set (all types, 4 EX's) for $25, and $5 shipping. That made me happy.

I plan on making a water type deck running vanilluse. 60+ for one water, two colorless is nice.
Not to mention it's Ability.

Today at league, this 7th grader comes in for the first time, and buys a Team Rocket shirt, dogtag, and pin.
He's gonna go somewhere, trust me ;D

I really want to go to the state tournament in March. That way I can get some Champion Points, and maybe in the near future, get invited to Worlds, like this 7th grader at my league.

My league leader runs pretty much all of the DS tournaments on the west coast. He's getting to go to the Regional one in California, for free. Just because he does the DS tournaments. He also does the Washington one, and of course, Oregon.

Let me put it this way; Oregon's the best state when it comes to Pokemon, hands down.
We've broken records for the biggest tournaments here, and let me tell you, they're huge.

It somewhat intertwined with the original movie. I watched it in 3D, it was impressive, but not the BEST 3D I've ever seen. (Terminator 3D in Orlando Studios Wink ) I liked it.
I'd say more about the movie, but I'd give it all away.

You know watching YuGiOh 5D in Japanese dub makes the anime 10x cooler! The Japanese version is more dramatic exicting fun and better music! English dub does suck tho =\. I mean, English voice is just corny tbh. Thank Goodness for internet. I like it all now but Zexal is just disappointing. A storyline full of little kids in middle school. But the reason I keep watching it is because Kaito is badass, I still want to find out his background tho. Wish he was the main char. . . .

Click here for the most classic thread on WBO of all time. Enjoy!

Strive for greatness.

That's how I feel about most english dubs. there are some english dubs like cowboy bebop and samurai champloo that keeps faithful to the style of the anime. anime geared towards for kids and teens tend to have bad voice acting in tthe ears of older anime fans. funimation has its mix of good and bad dubs, so you can't really hate on them that much.

I'm running a simple Feraligatr/Feraligatr Prime and Vanilluxe deck. I just need to buy a few energies to finish it, then test it next week.
Found my old Legend deck, thankfully. It had four sets of legends in it.
I also gotta EV train a team for tournaments.

I have a Team Rocket shirt, dogtag, and pin. I just need some Team Rocket dice, and maybe a hat too...
Oh, all are made and sold by my league leader. He also has a nice button up shirt that's black and red, and has a big black R on the back, a little sewn black R on the front, and under it, it says Visitor.
I want one like that, but it costs like $60 all together.

I've been much less active the last 3 or so days, idk if you guys noticed. Anyway, I was busy at a seminar learning music in its entirety. And I did and it was probably the single most amazing experience of my entire life.

If you ever wanted/failed/tried/succeeded at music, guys, even considered touching an instrument one day ever, I'm telling you, go to this seminar if it ever comes near you, no matter WHAT your skill level, no matter how little sense it makes, honestly, the less you know the less there is to UN-LEARN: http://www.understandingmusicseminar.com.au/

I went to this three day seminar, no idea how to read music, no idea what a circle of fifths was supposed to be, no idea how to work out scales or chords. Most of it was cleared up in a few minutes once the guy (Duncan Lorien) had explained that we have to stop trying to make sense of one of the most ridiculous systems on Earth.

No matter what your skill level, I'm not even advertising here, I get nothing if one of you goes to this seminar other than the message you'd send me afterwards to say "thanks th!nk i can play Bach after 3 days" (aint kidding, I played a little Bach yesterday), which is plenty.

It's so hard to try and explain just how amazing this seminar is, three days and I GET EVERYTHING EVER. Like, don't miss out, it's life-changing stuff.

My only regret is that I was too sceptical to go last year. Every word on that feedback page is true, and it's worth every cent you will pay (and Perth is like, the most expensive seminar they run because everything here costs double).

This Duncan Lorien guy is basically the "mystical music-teaching fairy". I swear, no mere mortal could teach me to read music in under a day, given I'd tried for 2.5 months and then given up.

It's so hard to explain without you guys having been there without sounding like a shill, but just DON'T miss the chance, ever. He travels the world doing this stuff 8 months out of the year, so odds are he'll end up somewhere near you.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

If the iPhone had a screencap feature where you could take video of what's on the screen, it'd be really cool. I'm about to download the Pokemon Yellow app, and it'd be fun to do a Let's Play/walkthrough of it that way.
Too bad it's not actually Pokemon Yellow.
