Following New Trends: Tumblr


 New web trends of expressing yourself has gone long ways now. From making blogs, to sharing video, making Vlogs (video Logs), Social networking, Twitter status and etc; I have pretty much experienced and tried these trends. It seems so much what the mainstream online browsers try to follow. I have managed to sort of successful in making videos on Youtube under the name TanukiNinja8; few years back and probably know me from making Anime Reviews on AnimeAfterLifePodcast. Though I didn’t find Twitter very amusing, it just seemed like a single element taken from Facebook, which is the status updates but without the Personal information. I made a blog here, that hopefully one day my archives and thoughts would be recorded for me to look back to. It seems to me that I have lost my sense of Blogging and too shy to Vlog. So I stumble upon a nice Blog site recently told by a friend, called Tumblr.

I was very a well aware that Tumblr exist but didn’t know what it was or anything about it. It seem to me Tumblr is a new way of blogging and re-posting articles without the hassle, with some simple interfaces. I was pretty intrigued and wanted to try it out, well I guess this blog has been always on Hiatus. So I made a Tumblr, that I post of whatever appeal to my interests and I find interesting to show others such as anime, video games and a little bit of myself. So check it out!

Depriving my Online Social Interactivity

Well…. It’s Spring break for some College students and I guess I have some more free time now. It’s been really a long time since I updated my blog and my work, I guess i’m kind of slacking a bit lately. I feel like I don’t have the energy I had since the start of the year, where I was more productive and on top of things. I haven’t really blogged, posted videos, draw, write reviews or broadcasted on JTV. Things have changed over that time…. People ask me “How come you aren’t doing these things no more?” I find it funny since I don’t really get much views on my online profiles or visitors on the blog. But I guess there are some people who want to know me and I’ll guess i’ll reply to that, as they are the viewers and followers.

I have been kind of busy with my life you can say kind of… for one I have been doing schoolwork and studying so I can hopefully transfer to another university. Having morning and night classes give me little time during middle of the day to do each things, whenever I have free days during the week I’m usually asleep. I don’t really know what direction in life i’m heading towards too or what to do in the future? I’ve became also more socially withdrawn as my psychologically development too; I spend most of my free time chatting on Skype sometimes. I really don’t have much friends in the real world and I really devote my friendships online but deriving your real life activities to be on Skype is not what I want it to be no more. I remember the days I use to actually spend my free time on more productive things like my Part time Job, Artwork and my health.

I decided that i’m no longer going to use Skype to be affiliated with these long distanced friendships that I should use it to contact a friend or family member once in awhile. All things should be taken moderately… As for social problems, I have been also experiencing physical problems such as my diet. Eating cafeteria Junk and sitting on the computer isn’t good for my health either. For the past few weeks I’ve been walking in to town and getting a good couple of hours of exercise and seeing some new places. Such as going to cafes and hanging down at bookstores. It really made me feel that there is a beautiful world out there and plenty of things for me ahead of my life to do than wasting the minute of my precious time.

For people who actually wonder what will happen to my videos and reviews, don’t worry I still work on a bit on free time.

Coming up soon! …

Moving on to Blu-Ray

Well I’ve been contemplating this for a long time about the blu-ray format. I know lots of people been uneasy about it since the format wars between HD-DVD and Blu-ray. Considering HD-DVD was a huge failure and didn’t sell well compare to Blu-ray, also big media corporations upscaling their featured motion pictures started taking a swing to Blu-ray. Thus HD-DVD has died and I feel bad for all the people who put their hearts and minds investing on one. Pfft… fanboys are still bitching today about HD-DVD is still there and they don’t want to accept blu-ray as the future format. Oh they don’t look good as HD-DVD, Their too expensive…, too slow, and stuff like they cost twice more than DVDs.

I’ve been pondering so much about it and I decided to give Blu-ray a chance and put my faith in it. I remember when DVD player came out back in the day. My god I didn’t know anything about it at all, I remember they were big, slow and fucking expensive when it first started. People dropped a deuce over it and sticked to VHS. Until it took time and people notice it had better quality, more features and carried lots of memory. Maybe Blu-ray will be the same. Well so far I’ve been watching quite a few Blu-Ray movies and been enjoying them alot; movies such as Ironman, Boondocks Saints, The Kingdom, Fast and the Furious, Street Fighter, Air, and much more. Very significants qualities! The picture is very clean and outstanding! Old movies remastered look perfect in Blu-ray especially! So far Blu-ray players are going down in prices such as around 200 dollars or around 300 if you thinking on buying a PS3 which is gaming console, digital media player and music player. (PS3 are good blu-ray players and there good for the whole family) Not to mentions Blu-ray discs are going down in price too. I’m convinced to buy more Blu-rays from here on. Well I’ll blog more about Blu-ray later so I will come back later on it!

Another Anime Convention missed.

Missed out on the first debut of an anime convention over here. Not gonna say what convention for the sake of protection but yeah.. Forgot to order my ticket a long time ago and it went from a 45 dollar fee to a 60 dollar entrance. Just for 2 days remaining of the convention which usually lasts for a bout 3 days. Bull shit man! That’s my Red Dead Redemption money and my grocery money for upcoming may madness. The only way I’ll pay 60 bucks for an Anime convention if I took a long trip from providence to providence to be there and the budgeting for the whole trip. But this Anime convention right now is next door to my Community College. Sheesh, I guess I miss out on Ohayocon, PortCon, Anime Expo and other shiz. Then again I’ve been to a couple of conventions and there really nothing worth dying to go to in my opinion except just hanging out with friends and some panels. Next year… maybe..

I need a new Broadband IP.

I really hate the service… SO SCREW THEM!

I remember when I first got Broadband with Qwest back in 2005. The service was decently okay but, it was helluva expensive paying over 50 dollars a month for about 1.5-3 mbs connection speed. Well my family took a hiatus from it for about 2 years until we came back when they told us an offer for 7mbs speed cutting our former bill for a lifetime. For once I thought this was going to be a lifetime good price, it was cheaper until they kept sending higher bills and they said there wasn’t going to be a price raise. Now the bills has been skyrocketing about 70 dollars a month what a lousy fee….

The other day the family was moving the modem around the house to set up a new router. When shit has to go down and the modem short circuited. I don’t know what happen we were using a safety multi plug jack, so I had to call Qwest the night after. Telling them that the modem has short circuited and they offer me to rent a new modem for an extra 8 dollars a month or pay 100 with 30 dollars installment for 3 months. Bullshit I told them that I had a previous modem from Qwest that I want to re-connect to their service. I was on the helpline patiently for about an hour with technician telling me to go to my ip menu and connect it. He just repeated that for about an hour straight then he just gave up and put me to a marketplace to buy a new modem. Sometimes I just think I was too retarded for him to handle or he was fed up with me, I wasn’t hostile on the phone or angry.

So my mother bought her new modem and my dad came back and manages to connect the modem from 05 to the internet with our new account….. fucking Ironic bullshit lol….
