If you haven't noticed, I'm not one to do memes but I liked this one so I figured "What the hell". It's called honesty meme. Here are the instructions:

Step 1: Post this into your LJ publicly.
Step 2: Others will reply anonymously  about what they really think of you. (So yeah, this is your chance to say what you want. or any criticism about what I'm doing so far. I can think of 3 personal criticisms so I don't mind yours. I know I'm not perfect and I'm trying to improve and fix my mistakes as I go along.)
Step 3: Cry, because this meme is so brutal, and it hurts. (Nah, I think I'll be ok.  XD Hey, if you ask for honesty don't bitch when it's given to you)

As for update: I'm reworking the whole audio commentary. I give up and I'm going to put it on blip so I can't have it as is since it will be my official recap of chapter 6. And while it's not the worst chapter I have read in my life (considering I read  "The Twilight Saga" and Magic Study among many other bad books) it really brought a new level of suck I was not prepared for. I also have to figure out how blip works so I would say Evermore will be posted Monday-Tuesdayish. Also, for those who care, I'll post The host tomorrow.

Ok, I read Evermore chapter 6 last night because it wasn't that big and that book is truly an easy read and it just pissed me off. I kept thinking I should just burn it somewhere and be done with that. It made me so mad I actually recorded myself ranting because honestly WTF?! It's not the worst chapter I have ever read, but it took me by surprise how quickly this descended from this sucks to hfdlskhflqshfakshn with me. So I was going to post it in that cool player thing I showed you some posts before, but I can't and I don't know if it is because of size or format but I can't so I'm going to have to put a picture in and make it a "video" but I don't want that because I can't put it in youtube. This thing is not short at all and I can't splice it.

So here's the question, does anybody know an WMA to mp3 converter? I checked on google, but the ones I found came with problems to the people who downloaded them before. If not I may have to look for that old blip account I made or make a new one, but since it's not a real video I would rather not do that.

In which two idiots get lost in the desert and almost die.


What do you mean repetition doesn't compensate for showing in a story? )

In which we have a lunch scene with Haven and Miles just being wonderful.


I am Shaolina and I have a problem... )


shaolina: (Default)

In which Haven has a fit over the possibility of Damen not show, then he just shows up and substitutes characterization with uber hotness.

I can honestly say I can't remember ever reading a chapter where 90% of the lines revolved around the hotness of one character. )

So I have a habit of buying writing magazines with contests inside, publishers and agents looking for new writers and how to format to submit but I don't actually use all this info. So I decided to anybody interested to give info on contests and things like that. If you are interested in anything of the sort tell me the genre of your novel so I can look for something for you. Poetry is also accepted.

In which Ever gives of exposition of her current living arrangements and relationship with her sister without actually showing us.

I felt like testing this audio streaming plug to see if it works in livejournal. The song is Para volver amar (to love again ) by Kany Garcia.

Wow, it actually works. XD I love this Windows live writer program. It doesn't make livejournal screw up like when I copy paste a spork from Word, it can also embed audio, pics and videos with ease and makes tables. Although the movie maker program sucks and sound recorder just makes me miss my mac even more.

In which Wanderer travels the desert and finds a deserted house.


Guess this week's special theme )


shaolina: (Default)
What happens to somebody who walks under the heavy rain for 3 hours straight, taking refuge in offices with A/C and steps on puddles and gets extra showers from passing cars. All of that ending in a bus with an A/C that would have frozen a desert.  >_<

Sorry for breaking my schedule. I just got a nasty cold dealing with my university and picking up my siblings. I hate getting sick. If only I could get a genie I would wish... well, for nothing actually. Heaven knows what the asshole would do to mess with me. Well, unless it's a Disney genie.

I'm working on several little projects and one of them is the translation of this comic:

Well, more like translation/recap since I could get in trouble if I translate the whole thing. It'll be similar to my Haou Airen spork, but without me hating on it. XD (I'll post next week the schedule for this project if anybody cares. I'm waiting for school to start so I can come up with a schedule)

Anyway, as I was working I decided to make some icons out of the panels I was doing. These are based on the first 5 pages of the comic.

In which the love interest appears and everyone wants to hump him. Are you surprised?


All aboard the cashcow!  )

"What? Evermore? Weren't you going to do House of Night and where's part 2 of The host?!"

Well gentle reader the answer to that is yes starting next week and I said I would post it tomorrow, didn't I? Somebody just linked me to the excerpt of this series and I just couldn't help myself. To be honest I needed this. This gives me the same feelings Bree Tanner gave me. It's bad guys, no lie, but I was laughing as I read on. I could so do a dramatic reading of this book and I can't hate things that make me laugh.

Tiny MST here )

I won't post The host spork until monday, sorry for the delay. Still, I just came up with something (well, technically I did a week ago, but I finally wrote it down)

The Bree Tanner drinking game:


Because let’s face it, the only two ways to enjoy this novella is either take the lulz road (Diego is gay for Riley and Bree’s too stupid to notice, etc.) or the get drunk road. Now I warn you, this one may lead to alcohol poisoning or plenty of potty emergencies if playing with juice or water. Just putting that out there! The game goes as follows 

Take a shot every time:


1) Diego talks about Riley in a “loving” and trusting way.

2) Bree says she doesn’t get what’s going on.

Double if it’s after a logic chain that tells her she should run away.

            Take an extra one if she says “Oh I wish Diego were here so I could understand what’s going on” or a variant at the end of that.

            Chug if it prompts her to ask “Where is Diego?” (This doesn’t apply to every “Where’s Diego?” just the ones that come out of Bree “not getting what’s going on.” If you drink for every “Where’s Diego?” make sure to leave a suicide note.)

3) Meyer tries to be cool and street. (Trust me, you need this shot)

       Double if it involves ninjas or bad spelling.

4) Bree acts as a coward even though she described herself as a god at the start of the book.

            Double if it involves cowering behind Fred.

5) For ever Eclipse canon rape that happens. (Like the fact Bree “tells” Edward everything but it’s never mentioned or Esme wanting to save Bree unlike in the actual book where it’s Carlisle only who wants to save Bree).

6)  Bree praises the Cullens.
             Double if she goes on about how awesome Bella is for hanging with vamps.

7)  Bree describes somebody as immature.

8)  Riley's tactical genius and leadership skills doesn't show at all.

9) For every random murder scene that gets ignored later on, even though the ammounts of people they eat should have the police in a frenzy.

             Double when they kill more than five people.
             Double if the way they hide evidence is retarded. (Explosions are not subtle and will prove inconsistent when investigating the scene)

10) And finally, take a shot whenever Bree comments on how much she loves Diego.
            Chug if it is followed by a comment along the lines of "I wonder if he would choose me over Riley". Because that kind of denial needs plenty of it.


XD Huh, I actually enjoyed doing that. Maybe I should come up with one for The host.

Here are some of my Lunar 2 icons. Take if you like any of them.

Sorry guys, but I'm super busy again. I couldn't do the whole thing in one sitting. But hey, something is something.

In this chapter Wanderer and Melanie go shopping and head out to the desert. Yeah, that's pretty much it. 

Here are the facts )
