My dorky haiku continue

AVphoenixThe Phoenix –
The woman died in flames
And from them she some how rose
Death soon followed her

Death of Bromance
Why must we part ways?
We were all the best of friends.
Now, we are strangers.

My life is so blue
Why can’t it be Green or Gold?
It’s blue but not sad.

Un-wasted funds
Saving up all of your cash-
Why Anime Conventions?
Instead of your life?

That’s All I’ve Got To Say about The Orville!

I just finally watched the episode before last of The Orville… season 2 episode 11.

In this episode, there is a story about a phone in a time capsule, and one of the crew members uses it to make a simulation of the girl who owned the phone. Turns out the girl performs music… and she performs a cover to a song that I was not expecting… below is the full version that isn’t exactly in the show…

That’s All I’ve Got To Say from The Last Unicorn. Wow. I got misty eyed during this!

For comparison, here is the original version.

I Thanos snapped my video games away?

Zelda ocarina of time mangaFor (at least) the second time in my life, I’ve purged myself of most of my video games. Almost all of my GC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, and Wii U games netted me over $170 in Gamestop store credit. True, I put that into gift cards from Subway, Xbox, Steam, and Taco Bell… but it was the right decision.

I would have bought an Amazon gift card, but sadly… Amazon cards can not be bought by store credit. The women behind the counter tried to do it by turning the store credit into a GameStop Gift Card… and still… nothing. So now I can eat and buy a few digital games on PC and Xbox One… which I’m keeping as my Blu Ray player.

Eventually, maybe I will get rid of my NES, SNES, Super Famicom, PSX, PS2, Dreamcast, and Sega Saturn… I swear to god, I got rid of most of my physical games O_O … most being at least 50%…

OH MY GOD! WITHOUT MY copy of The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition, I have no way of playing Ocarina of Time! Oh wait… 3DS… Whew… that was a close one.

twilight princessI’m not happy… not all of the time. My games collect dust in a box in my garage, not even properly displayed so they can peer over my should and judge me for not playing them.

My roommate got rid of all of his games years ago. Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, DS, and a crap ton of PC games that he literally threw away. He also got rid of his DVDs. He too wasn’t happy. He seems happier now.

Tips_Tricks_Volume_IV_Issue_1_1997-01_LFP_USI want to note that GameStop, outside of selling every single game independently, was my best option out of three. I first tried Half Priced Books, who after over an hour and a half told me that all of the games that I brought in, some DVD and Blu Rays that were not open, and a crap ton of magazines and some books would only net me $130. Gamestop would have given me a little under that for just MOST of my games alone. Cash America Pawn? they would have given me $1 for each of my Xbox 360 games, and looked at me weird with my cube collection.

mario kart double dashOH MY GOD I SOLD Mario Kart Double Dash!

It doesn’t matter though… because the friends that I played that game with were from over a decade ago, and re-buying it didn’t re-buy that experience for me.

It was the right time to sell, as each game got me an additional 50% in store credit. I’d have received more if I had subscribed to their magazine, but I would have still had to pay $3 of the store credit to get their magazine for a year. Nope.

Switch_SuperSmashBrosUltimate_illustration_02OH MY GOD! SMASH BROS! Melee, Brawl, and Wii U! What did I do?! NOOOooo… doesn’t matter. I still own my physical consoles, and there are a lot of games downloaded that I can still play… and… ouch.

BUT I WASN’T PLAYING THEM! The idea that I would be a grandfather someday and some kiddo would find my games in a trunk in the attic and become engrossed in them like I once was… I might never have that… so things are fine. They are fine.

I would like to point out that I got the most money for my Gamecube games… still there was a trade bonus. I’m still gaming a little… and there’s some hope for the future.

Married With Children

I really loved Married With Children. I get that in 2019 that the themes of this show are considered ‘controversial,’ but you know what? They were controversial in 1987. *sigh* I could go into a whole essay about why this show was what it was, but I just… *sigh* Is it okay if I just wear a No Ma’am shirt as a cosplay at a convention? Please? Happy Throwback Thursday everyone.

The Blog is 9 years old!

AmazingSpiderGirlThis blog is 9 years old, and has covered/embraced/celebrated many different things from My Little Pony, Cosplay, Comics, Video Games, and more. I do not know the future of this blog or domain name even… I do know that it has been an enjoyable time, and I have had the glorious opportunity through it to interview some cool people and meeting new friends.

Below are 9 pictures from my blog, each from a different year, and 8 of which were created by me.

The Death of the mastermind of 9-11, Cosplay Prom, Art for a friend and her husband, Me with some Poke babes at Coast con, Jupiter and Mercury together to tease one of my friends, Rogue from MagFest, MLP cosplay from the last Nightmare Nights, Skies of Arcadia cosplay from last years MagFest, and the unearthed magazing cover featuring one of my favorites Futaba-Kun change! Mmm…. some interesting and even good times.

20181013_184946Like I said, I do not know the future of this blog. I really want to migrate the content of this blog off of wordpress. I do not like using it’s image menu, as the further back I search for images, the less stable it gets. Also, I’ve reached past 80% of my allotted image space.

Here’s hoping that I can figure out a way to make http://www.netsenshi.com prosper!

Shun day Sunday

Sean Halo broCOLORIt’s Sunday. A useless and boring day that I have failed to protect people from lately… sorry for that? I’ve been busy #kicking and #standing and being barely able to walk to spending WAY too much money recently to walk more comfortably!

So… what should people do on a day where there is no Chick-fil-a to gorge on?

HalocombatevolvedcortanamasterchiefHalo! Yes… this is an easy cop-out answer. Halo: The Master Chief collection has been announced for PC, and apparently Halo Reach is coming along with… so now might be the proper time to refine those skills that at SXSW made it possible to pay the bills… for someone who is not me. I was only ever all right with Halo 3.

khIIIArielandSoraKingdom Hearts III… Okay… so just because Halo has was able to make the jump from Xbox to Xbox 360, that doesn’t mean that we should pick on Square Enix’s Disney baby for skipping from PS2 all the way to near the end of the PS4… right? Really… almost any Kingdom Hearts will do, as there were a ton of sequels that could even be better than this jumbled up non-sense that tried to tie all of the handheld spin offs into something coherent.. on second thought… maybe Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2 is more worth playing at this point.

human flounder 01Work on your fanfiction! Seriously… Kingdom Hearts making a mockery of things people take seriously… such as Winnie The Pooh and the Greek demi-god Hercules, might ensure that Tetsuya Namora is going to go to hell… but not every fan fiction has to be terrible! Or maybe you are more of a fan artist who likes drawing Flounder as a girl so he can kiss all of the boys? No matter what your outlet is, let those creative, yet still derivative, juices flow! Who knows, maybe you will be the next Stephenie Meyer!

GREEN THE EFF UP! Seriously… it might be Sunday, which is the day Christians should be celebrating their lord and savior, but it’s also St. Patrick’s day… so whatever you do…

… dress accordingly.

I, personally, will be celebrating by ignoring my responsibilities, staying inside on what is also the last day of Spring Break, and watching maybe Gangs of New York… and/or Robin Hood Men in Tights… cause IRELAND! UGH!
