We've Moved!

Well, I've moved anyways. New blog:

Complete with 90% more of my childish whims, rants, and all around craziness.
Much more craziness.

Trust me.

Meeting authors is awesome? Psht, YEAH!

So I got to meet Ally Carter a couple weeks ago at a book fair- highlight of October, by the way. She's so nice!!!

And I was wondering, to any might-be readers out there- any authors you desperately want to meet? Maybe you have multiples, maybe not at all. I wanna know!

And if you're a wanna-be author, such as yours trully, whats the thing that frustrates you most about book fairs?  Is it that the authors don't take you seriously? Or that you just don't like any of what they've written?

Feedback, anyone? =P

Houston, we have....Animation in America?

Wait, no we don't.

It's true. Animation in America (Try saying that five times fast!) is beginning to go down the drain. With countries like Japan (I mean, come on, who can compete with that stuff?) taking over the market, American animation of any kind is taking a backseat to liveaction.

Maybe it's time to learn a lesson or two from another country film-wise.

Our animation has begun to suck. You heard me.

I mean, ever since Mulan (I am proud to have been alive for the release of that movie) traditional animation has been terrible. (We aren't counting computer animation, since that's kinda taking off.) I mean, what happened to The Lion King? Ever since the 90s, Disney has once again entered the dark ages of animation. (They've entered them before- the Black Cauldron wasn't the biggest hit on the block ya know.)

And the Princess and the Frog? From what I've heard, it was a joke: a lame, sad joke. I'll make that judgement when I get the chance to finally see it. Anyone know where I can find it online?

And channels like Cartoon Network? Not even worthy of the name. What happened to Toon Disney?! Seriously, Disney XD? For skaters? Disney, you've got to be kidding me! Skaters wouldn't be found NEAR that network in the first place? (Then you commited a cardinal sin and bought Naruto Shippuden. I don't even LIKE that anime and I'm mad at you.)

The littlest Jonas brother needs to stay away from voice acting. FAR away. Don't ruin it for the rest of the REAL otakus!

Ok, this rant has gotten a little off-track. All in all, Hollywood, make a good animated movie. Because right now, your target group must be A LOT smaller than you think.

I'm back!!!!

And I have a new layout! (Thanks!!!) How's that for unashamed, unpaid advertising? Not to shabby, eh?

I know it's not my normal style for a blog, but I figured I'd try something new- plus I really like it!

So I've been working on other blogs as well, so I've been just a liiiittle busy. To see my awesomesauce design compiling (That should so be a job title.) go to (Which you can now FOLLOW! WOOT! What a concept.) and The latter is not my own blog, it is my mother's. She's selling really awesomely cute craft supplies, so check it out! Not that she's blogged anything yet- just set up the layout this morning! So yeah, go check it out anyways!

The Austin Teen Book Fair is coming up soon, and you wouldn't BELIEVE how excited I am. Why? The list of authors just changed.

ALLY CARTER IS GOING! I repeat: ALLY CARTER! Author of Heist Society...only the BEST teen book EVER! (Because Artemis Fowl really isn't meant for teenagers- it's meant for middle school boys. What does that say about my personality? Hmm...)

And I got the book for another author (Catherine Jinks) who's going, which looks evilly awesome. (Evil Genius- no, that's literally the title.)

And I have to finished the manga I borrowed from my friend. And the Harry Potter book I'm borrowing from another friend. With that, we've realized that THIS author has to go do a lot of reading from OTHER authors. Awesome...books. Maybe I have an addiction, maybe I don't. Heh.

Talk to y'all soon!

Yeah, it's that time of high school.

Stupid scholarships! I keep having to apply for you! Why?!

Oh well, I'm having to quit Nanowrimo this year. Crapola. STUPID JUNIOR YEAR! Lordy, why can't it end before it starts?

Back to watching Design Star! =)

Long time no talk.

So yeah, I've been busy. Writing has taken a bit of a back burner on the stove, sadly.

Not as much as blogging.

I lack inspiation? I guess.

School is about to start, my life is about to go null n' void. BAH. I'm going to get more organized. I swear. I also owe one person swaps on inkpop. Darn.

Sorry for the short post, this is just me, complaining about what a fear my busy life will become. I SHALL LIVE THOUGH! Junior year will not kill me.

Do we have any scifi fans out there?

Do we have any scifi fans out there?

Anyone? Anyone at all?

If so, tune in to the Syfy channel at 8:00 Central, because we have WAREHOUSE 13 coming back on!

Second season, and we finally get to find out what happened to Arty! And what happens to the framed Claudia. And how Myka and Pete defeat MacPhearson!

So, my fellow avid scifi junkies, I expect to see you there. ;)
