Adventure Time

Do me a favour?
If you haven't watched every episode of this, do it now. NOW
If you haven't seen the least two episodes of AT, DO NOT READ THIS. Please. Even if you have no intention of watching it. Because you really should. So if you haven't, leave this blog. I'm serious. I will be angry if I find out you read this without watching the episodes

Now, AT (can't be bothered writing out full title) ranks second best on my favourite shows list, right after Avatar. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE IT IS MATHING AWESOME

It has humour- and more so than any show I've watched before. DAMN, this show is funny. It also has a good plot. Based on a post apocalyptic world after a nuclear war. But light hearted, not serious
This is also one of the few shows that has good music made by the show. But what makes a show a EXTREMELY good show? That it can make you feel for the characters, which is especially hard in a comedy based show. ATLA and AT are the only two shows that come to mind that can do this for me.
So, now for the last two episodes of AT. I'm not going to explain the show as a whole, because if you haven't watched it you shouldn't be here.

First- Remember Me


This, my friends, is a quality episode. Maybe my favourite, maybe not, but it's up there let me tell you.
It starts off with Ice King singing "Daddy, Why Did You Eat My Fries?" (quite a good song). It's been on the mind of many a AT fan how Ice King knows Marceline's song, which has only been heard by Finn, Jake, Marce and Marce's dad. But anyway, he was singing it and he wants Marce to make him a song that will help him with the princesses. So he goes there and gets Marce all upset.
This, my friends, is where is gets brilliant.
Marce reveals that she actually likes Ice King, because after the war, when everyone was dead, they were the only two left. Ice King used to be human (anyone who's watched Holly Jolly secrets should know) and wrote down how Marce needed him, but his crown was changing him into a creature that is the Ice King.
I never do things justice explaining them, but damn, it was touching. Marce as a kid and Ice King as a human giving her a toy to make her feel better made me smile sadly (especially as this is the toy Marce said she loved the most ever before her ex sold it to a witch). But the way Marce sings makes me sad. She has a beautiful voice, and quite honestly makes me feel for her with every song she sings.
It was an excellent episode.

This, along with that episode What Was Missing are some of the best episodes in the show, because the songs very just make you feel sad, and are very good.

Now, on to the last epiosde of season 4. The Lich

The Lich is the villian of Ooo, the most powerful being ever. Finn bet him once, and unknowing to the characters, the Lich posessed a snail and didn't die.
The ep starts with Finn having a dream about him, Billy, a bear, Billy's girl and the snail all in Billy's cave. Finn is laughing at a TV, Billy's girl and the bear are playing, Billy is laughing with them and the snail is reading the Enchiridion. Billy frowns at the snail. It shows Finn is laughing at the image of the Cosmic Owl. Then the Enchiridion glows. It shows the shadow of the snail grow into something big. Billy looks frightened, attempts to run and the shadow gets him. Finn wakes up. Jake says that Finn has a premonition dream. They go see Billy, who seems fine, and he asks them if they want to help defeat the Lich. They agree.
The then gather all the princesses crown gems. After they collect all but one, they take a break. Jake, who is carrying the gems, asks how many more and Billy holds up one finger, not saying anything.
Finn goes into Billy's bag, trying to find food. Finn finds the Enchiridion, and asks Billy how he got it. Billy says he found it in the mouth of a bear. The bear Finn originally gave the Enchiridion to a while back. The book explains that the Enchiridion can open a dimensional portal when it has all the gems, and Billy says he'll push the Lich through there.
Finally, the last gem. Princess Bubblegum's. Finn burst into her room and without explaining tries to take the gem off, saying he needed it. Princess Bubblegum, who was carrying scissors at the time, slices Finn's cheek. After a moment where they were both stunned, she said it was an accident. Finn hisses and tears the gem out of her crown. When he leaves, she runs after him. Billy, who's outside, tells Finn to hurry up. Finn puts the last gem in the book, and it starts to glow. When Bubblegum sees Billy, she yells it's not Billy. Finn runs towards Billy. The Candy Kingdom's Gumball Guardians says "Lich Alert" and blasts Billy. Half of Billy's face is blown off, showing that he is the Lich. Also explaining why he didn't talk to Jake (Bubblegum previously stated that the Lich can't talk to anyone holding any of the gems)
Finn says the Lich 'messed Billy up' meaning he killed him. Finn smashes to book with his knee, but the Lich just smiles. When the book breaks, the dimensional portal opens. The Lich walks through. Jake grabs the Lich and tries to stop him, and Finn grabs Jake to stop him sliding into the portal. They both go into the portal.
It then goes to a scene with Finn having a nose, black eyes and a mechanical arm and Jake a regular non magic dog sitting outside next to a tree. The Other Finn's mom calls out to Finn, and Finn, in similar sounding but different voice asks Jake what he's done this time. They both go into the house.

This isn't the best episode, okay? But the cliffhanger is making me nervous. It is a good episode, don't get me wrong. I liked it a lot. Don't confuse me

Anyway, I just had to get those two episodes off my chest. Now people who shouldn't read this will comment, and I'll still be waiting for season 5 of Adventure Time

EDIT: I discovered Season 5 starts November 12th. Three weeks

Can't... Pick... Topic... Title

Welcome mortals, so my humble abode.
I'm in pain
Last week I had hurt the right side of my neck, It still hurts, but a lot less. Or maybe it's the same, but the pain in the left side of my neck is drowning it out.
Yep, my left is hurtinmg now. Going from my neck to shoulder to back. PAIN. Well, at least I can move this one.
Oh, guess what else? I may have broken my finger. It's swollen and was bleeding and has a bruise on it, which is a sign to me that it may not be broken. I dunno. Guess we'll find out.

I've started cricket again. I cannot do anything but field for my life, but anyway. Mt batting skills are improving somewhat.


Watch Pewdiepie play it. It's right up there with my favourite Pewdiepie games like Walking Dead and To The Moon. And of course Slender.


Okay, I've run out of things to say, and typing is painful because sometimes I forget about the finger and use it for a letter

Peace out!

God... Help... Me

Is it wrong to complain about me when there are people in far worse pain? Maybe, but I'm going to do it anyway

My neck is literally killing me. I say literally because I can actually feel my soul die, piece by piece, from the pain. I can even move my right shoulder without wincing and freezing for a few minutes while my neck feels like it's breaking. And forget about turning my head in any direction. Or standing. Or picking anything heavy up. Or stretching. Or sneezing (and I have one heck of a cold). Or not being in pain, I can forget about that.

It's my damn bag. I gauretee you it's heavier than any other bag of yours.
Last year I had to bring all my school books back in the one day. This was before I had a laptop, so there were a lot of books, thick big books. My bag can sometimes be heavier than that.
How is it possible, you ask? Well, I have to give all the credit to this damn laptop.
A student once dropped his laptop and laptop bag on his toes, and broke at least two. I haven't met a student in my year level who has the same shoulder strap on their laptop bag as they did at the start of the year. They keep breaking. The thing-
Oh, I just saw a raven in my window.
... Shut up
The thing that breaks is the metal bit that connects the strap to the bag. First time I broke that I got a new strap and tried to pull the metal bit apart, just to see if it would break like the last one. It was brand new, never used before. It lasted a week. Only one metal bit broke, so I tried to pull apart the other one in anger. I couldn't do it. I connected it to my bag and lifted it up. I could see it being pulled apart, though it didn't break. I'm sure it would've if a kept it on longer.
So, if it's so strong I can't break it (and believe me, no to brag, but I can be pretty strong when I want to) how does it keep breaking? THE LAPTOP!
It puts a strain on the strap and metal bit, so it breaks. Can you imagine how it's putting a strain on me? I used to use the shoulder strap, but when my second broke I didn't bother getting a new one because my shoulder ached like mad. This was 5 months ago. My shoulder still hurts.
So there are little hand straps on it to carry it. I use those. After a few minutes of carrying it like that my hand's red and I have to switch hands, which can be awkward if I'm carrying books as well. The laptop by itself is heavy. The bag as well is painfully heavy. One of my teachers said it was heavy because it was shock proof. And he wasn't joking. I've seen the bags being thrown around like mad-
It's raining
-and the laptops haven't gotten any damage to them from that.
So every day I carry this laptop and laptop bag back from school to home. I have to bring other books as well.
Ever since the start of the year, when I started bring that laptop home, my neck and shoulders have been worse than ever. Halfway through May I had to go to the doctor's after I couldn't move my neck. At least that faded back to normal pain.
My year level's laptop is heavier than any other year level. These laptop's are not only preowned and heavy, but the worse quality. Other people have their own laptop, including the people who preowned them, so I'm one of the few who carry it home every day.
I'm not trying to complain. I'm glad I have a laptop. I just wish it was one of the other ones other year levels get.

My neck is feeling slightly better. I won't try try turning my head or standing, because I know that will bring that pain back.

Oh, and by the way, for those of you who care about my writing... Ah, I'll tell you later

Adios amigos, and keep smiling!

Well. Just one hole in the ground. OH MY GOD! A second one!

Yes. A decision was made.
First off, sorry for being a little stressed. I'll explain why in a minute. But I kinda got a little stressed when I said I couldn't watch the vids, and the most common answer was to find a way to watch them. I'm a very short fuse. I punched my friend in the stomach over him mispronouncing a word.
What? I have violent tendencies. Don't try and change me. You might get killed.

So, why I was so stressed. Regular reason would be because I had a decision to make. But you probably wouldn't understand. I have a inability to make personal decisions sometimes. Not just I find it difficult...
Once I thought for 45 minutes whether to have soup or bacon and eggs for dinner. In the end my mum just made me a toasted sandwich. I waited another three minutes to deiced if I should put sauce on it.
I'm better than I used to be, I'll give me that. When I was little I used to break down if I had to make a decision.
It's not always. Most of the time I can decide to do this, or do that. But when it's personal, and both choices are something I want, I have a really problem in choosing. I once walked around my house for three days carrying a pile of books because I didn't know which one I wanted to read first, and if I had to leave my room I took them with me in the hope the decision would just come to me. In three days I couldn't read three books (before I had the laptop, I just read every minute I wasn't eating, at school, talking or sleeping)
There's probably some medical name for inability to make decisions, or extreme difficulty to make decisions. Whatever.
All I know at the moment is that I'm getting extremely tired of typing decisions.

Now, for some news on the more political side. In other words, the darker side.
I've never been one for politics. I know which party I like and that's about it.
For those of you in Australia, you would have probably have heard about Julia Gillard's 50 minute vent in parliament. For those out of the wonderful land of Aus-
Julia Gilard is our Prime Minister. Following me so far? She's the first female Prime Minister in Australia, and between you me and the popsicle stick, she's been getting so much crap. Honestly, some people are so sexist. It's amazing how many of them work in politics.
So anyway, Tony Abbott (or is it Abott? I always forget) says something to the Prime Minister which was completely out of order in my opinion. I don't quite remember what he said, but I remember not liking it. So Julia Gilard stands up, and vents her anger.
Recently, a radio host said that Julia Gilard's late father died of shame because of his daughter. Naturally, this caused a commotion. Personally, I would have broken the man's arm. Julia just responded with a dignified silence, ignoring the radio host's phone calls and saying little on the subject.
I think Abott (or Abbott?) said the government was dying of shame, which clearly related to the earlier comment. Julia Gilard got angry, as any person would, and said that the government wasn't dying in shame, her father didn't die of shame, and she was tired of the sexist remarks she was getting from the opposition. It was impressive, in my opinion.
Yes, I support Labour (Julia Gilard's party). Maybe it's because I remember the last Liberal leader (Liberal being the opposition) and it didn't go well, maybe because I argee with Labour's plans and disagree with Liberal's, or maybe it's because if Liberal win the next election, my mother will most likely lose her job from government job cuts.
Whatever the reason, I think that Julia Gilard is a much better leader.

Now, to end of this post with no apparent fixed topic, I give you the miracle of Google Images

I need ya opinion

Okay, I have to make a decision, and it's very likely I'll have to make it before I can see your opinions, but on the off chance I do get to see these beforehand, I'd like your help.
On Friday, I have to do one of two things
One- Go with my uncle to Mida Mida (or is it Mita Mita...?) for a fishing weekend. We're leaving on the Friday because it is a four hour drive. I'd love to go, and in normal situations I'd go without thinking. However...
Two- Stay at school. Period 5 and 6, the last two of the day, there is a media presentation where all the media classes have their movies shown. For media, we had to make our movies. There are three media classes, and most of my friends are in one of those classes (none in mine- go figure). I'd love to see their videos, because I hear quite a few are really good. This is the only chance I'll get to watch them.
I'd hate to disappoint my uncle, who's been looking for a date for this fishing trip for a while, and who's very enthusiastic about going. I'd also hate to miss the once in a lifetime opertunity to see these videos.
So I need to choose one. Either leave on the Friday (can't leave after school, before you ask) or stay on the Friday. I know there'll be other times to go on the fishing trip, but my uncle doesn't always have the time, and this might be the only time to go for a long time. Maybe it's not. I don't know.
So help me out here guys

You guys are awesome

Another epiphany! Knowing my mood swings, this won't last, but I don't mind
My epiphany is- That you guys who actually read my posts are the sort of people I want as my friends. The people I don't nessesarily talk to the most maybe, but you're all kind and funny and just... People I get along with.
I spent a long time sulking that hardly anyone reads my blogs. But now I don't care. Because you people, who comment on nearly all of my posts- You're just awesome.
I wanted other people- I'm not going to bother with names- To read my blogs. But if they don't, they don't. You people who do are the best people, and the people I like.
I won't bother putting my links around for this blog unless I want someone in particular to read it. Cause a comment from you people, who actual read my stuff because you want to, that's a comment I know isn't forced.
So, thanks a heap again for putting up with my nonsense. I'm really going to try for a post once every three days at the least.
For those of you who want to read some of my awesome stories (they're just the essence of awesome) and don't already, here's the link

Thanks Eve and Eddie and Vlaedr and Mist and Thrust and Izz, because you guys read my stuff the most. Vlaedr, I know I haven't been commenting on your stories, and sorry for that, but they're sooo bloody long! I'll get through them someday. And yes Eddie, I read most of your posts. You're a good reveiwer. Thrust, I'll get through yours as well, okay? Izz and Mist, you know I read your posts. Eve, I'd read your posts, but there are a severe lack of them.

Thank you, for wasting your valuble life reading this junk for absolutley no reason. And putting up with my spelling.

Mark of Athena: Full Report

Spoilers will be included. Massive spoilers. I won't be stopping anything.

So, I finished it in seven hours. It would have been quicker, but I had to quickly post that last post on my blog, had to eat dinner, had to set up my back garden, watched a little TV (I'm easily distracted) and talk A LOT
My parents like to talk

So, anyway, Mark of Athena. Good or bad?

Well, I'll start at the beginning. Personally, I don't like a few of the characters in this particular book. Jason, because I just got the feeling he thought he was the leader, and he thought he was better than Percy. Frank, because he acted a little strangely towards Leo. Actually, that's about it.
I really like Percy, he's my favourite character, and Leo is my second favourite, so naturally when two other characters didn't get along with them (at least in my head they didn't. I know Frank and Leo didn't, but Percy and Jason got on surprisingly well) I won't like the other characters.

But enough about me!

From the start the two camps got on surprisingly well. I expected a lot more arguing. The Romans did eventually attack, but still. I expected more less getting on.
But then they seemed to not act as individuals. I know a lot of them would be pissed, but Percy had just saved their camp, and Jason used to be their leader. Surely a few would go 'Hm, maybe we should give them a go?' Whatever.

So Leo, Hazel and Frank. Yes, the book actually had a love triangle. It was obvious Leo was never going to go out with Hazel, especially after he found out Hazel liked him because she used to like his great grandfather and they look almost exactly alike. Now, if you haven't read the books, this would seem very much wrong to you. Hazel was born 60 years ago or something, to clear that up, bit died and was brought back to life in this time.

There was a scene where Jason and Percy fight because they are possessed. Fine by me. Except for the bit after the fight, when they're back to normal, that Jason says he could have killed Percy, and when Percy says he could have killed Jason as well, Jason doesn't believe him.
Percy defended Manhattan against Kronos' army. He fought they titan of light (I forget his name) and the actual king of the titans. Jason went to the titan's base when they weren't home and defeated one titan, the titan of southern stars of something. Very impressive. NOT.
Moving on.

So, I won't spoiler the plot, on second thoughts. The fight between Jason and Percy is pretty early on. Hazel liking Leo's great grandfather is near the end-ish, but honestly, I'm sure anyone who read the previous books could guess it would be something like that. I did. IT WAS OBVIOUS

I liked Annabeth in this book. In a few of the books, I didn't like her that much. She seemed a little selfish to me. But in this one, I actually liked her.

Oh, I will do one spoiler for the end. Someone (not saying who) that knows a lot says Percy is the most powerful demigod they've ever met. I could just imagine Jason's face at that point.
But Jason and Percy got on well. I thought they wouldn't, but they did. It was only near the end I got past my own thoughts of what would happen and liked all the characters.

Mark of Athena was great, absolutely brilliant. Especially the ending. I know HAVE to have the next book.

A few bits and pieces I didn't like, but it was really good.


Mark of Athena

I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'll complete a book review when I'm done. So tonight or early tomorrow. It won't be up if my internet's not working
