Neoscream's Life, 23rd to 29th of August

Welcome to the new weekly post, "Neoscream's Life". This will be replace both the "Blaire and friends" and the "Wii Fit" posts, also standard blog announcements will hopefully be posted here too. This will be more like a dairy then anything, but leaving out or altering an odd it to protect myself or friends.

Normally on a Monday I am working (11am to 5pm), but on Sunday I was called up by work. They wanted me to swop days off with another staff member. I agreed and ended up getting Monday off instead of Tuesday, which ended up becoming a very good thing as it ended up being a busy day. First off, after reading some posts on the Cosplay Deviant forums, I decided to take some pictures of my old Games Workshop stuff that I still have. However, after getting all the stuff and setting to all up. I found out that the batteries in my camera were dead and I could not find any fresh ones around the house. So sadly I had to give up on that idea and pack things up. Luckily, not long after giving up, Blaire came on to MFC. Everyone had missed her and she was busy in group and true private the first time she was on. Damn it, I missed her first ever shower show because it was a true private. After the true private she went off to get something to eat. During that time I watch an episode of One Piece. Blaire came back about half an hour later, but this time on Skype. We chatted on Skype for a while on Skype until she went off for a very quick nap. We talked about several things like the shower show and her travel plans (or the lake of them). She came back onto MFC about half an hour later after going for a nap and she was smoking. Knowing her I bet I know what is. She stayed on for a while and I got on finishing the last ever "Blaire and Friends" post. She when into a group or private show (cannot remember which) after a while and then she left MFC. We chatted for a little bit and I warned her about a little problem she was having. She already knew about it, but she did not know that it was that bad. When she left, I watched a bit more One Piece and then headed down stairs to do some Wii Fit. Sadly about half way into the twenty minute jog, I started to feel and be sick, more acidy water with bits than normal vomit. I manage to push on to finish the jog. I went up to have a bath to see to that would settle the stomach. It was settling it a little bit, but after being in the bath for almost half an hour my dad came home from work and he started mourning about not putting Wii stuff away. So I had to finish my bath strait away and go back down stairs to put the stuff away. The sickly feeling came back to full strength doing this, but luckily the watery vomit had stopped. According to my mum when she got home, there was the 24 hour vomiting bug going around. Great. I was ok while setting down, but as soon as I stood up the sickly feeling came back. I posted up the last “Blaire and friends” and watched a bit more anime before heading to bed. Oh and I have been forgetting to say, my internet was work much fast them it had been the whole of last week, but that would not last.
Blaire on Monday, sadly there are no good pictures of
Blaire from Tuesday

As I swopped shifts, with another staff member I had work on Tuesday (11am to 5pm).  I somehow manage to fit a lot of things in the morning before leaving for work. OK, two things really, but they are long things. First Blaire came on-line of MFC. She first had a hot group show and then someone took her to a private show when she had a shower. This time it was not a true private show. WOW. She was wear a bikini top only, however sadly or luckily (depending on how you look at it) she was miss judging the height of the camera when she lifted her legs up to wash them. After the shower we chatted for a minute or two on PMs and then she left. I headed down stairs to measure and weigh myself as it was that time again, which the result are in the last Wii Fit post. I did about 20 minutes of Wii Fit be for getting wash and leaving for work. While travelling to and from work and during my lunch break I wrote the Wii Fit post and started the introduction to this post. When I got home after work, I headed strait upstage to set up the laptop so it was buffering the next episode of One Piece. I was planning on head back down stairs to do some more Wii Fit as I had only manage to do 20 minutes so far. However as the site loaded up, I heard the front door opening. It was my dad so the idea of getting more training in on the Wii Fit went down the drain. I ended up watching some stuff online and start putting to gather the model list post. I was planning to finish it and post both it and the Wii Fit post on my blog but then after posting the Model List a little too early, my internet crapped up and I could not do anything online. I tried rebooting both the router and laptop, but nothing worked, so I want to bed very pissed off leaving the router unplugged. Oh and while working on the model list I realised why ZoeySmartz has not been online.
My Router

It is Wednesday, meaning it is my long shift at time (12pm to 9pm). I plugged the router back in and my internet was running, but at a very, very slow speed so I did not bovver to watch anything online. I manage to finish the model list and post the last “Wii Fit” post.  Sadly my dad was off work so I was not able to do any Wii Fit as my dad was off. The internet did slowly get better but it was still slow. I e-mailed Blaire to let her know about the internet problems veer my Blackberry. When I got to work I realised I forgot my bag. That was very odd of me as it is normally second natcher to me. Many times when I leave the house when I do not need the the bag I have to stop myself from grabbing it. After work, my internet had not improved at all. I ran internet speed test and found my internet speed was 160Kbps. I text my mates to let them know how bad my internet was.  Both Simon and Darren ageed that it was terrorble but Richard thought it was normal. As I carried on webbing, in got slower and slower until there was barely any internet. I tried the internet on my mum’s Notebook and the broadband speed on a test was 48Kbps. So I gave up and called it a night.  Moments after I went to bed I received an e-mail back from Blaire letting me know that she had received it.
Wii Sports Resort

Then it was Thursday, a day off. The internet was barely running. Did I manage to fight for an episode of One Piece, it took all of the morning and lunch time to get the epidose (25 minitue long at max and in standard def). I tried calling BT to see if there is a fault in the line. However, I could not do it on the line I was testing and the number did not work on my mobile. I tried phoning my mum to ask her to do the test for her work line. However because of staff problems, one of them walked out, she was too under staff to help. As the internet had totally stoped, I decided to disconnect the whole lot and give up. I went off to have a bath. After cooling down I decided to reconnect the router. When I got to the router I found that it had fallen off the place I put it. I reconnected everything and found the internet was work again, slow but working. During all of this, I did try to use my Wii, but found that the rechargeable battery was dead so I plugged it into charge and did a little bit of Wii Sports Resort. I suck at basketball. Also I worked on the Heroclix post. I get in contact with Richard about borrowing his extra router to see it my problem was the router. After all of that I cooked dinner and then after dinner headed off to Heroclix. When I get back home at about 11pm, the internet was still working luckily. It ended up being a long day and I did not get to bed until 1am.

Wii Fit Table
On Friday morning, the internet was still working and picking up speed as well. There was still not sign of Blaire on MFC, Skype or Twitter. I headed down stairs to go and do some Wii Fit. I first measured my waist and found I lost another 1cm, however when I went to turn on the Wii Board I found that the battery never changed. Great, not. I decided to take out the battery and charge it outside the Wii Board than in it. Luckily I have done the table now as you should be able to see. I had work at 11am to 4pm like a normal. It was very busy and ended up doing a job that meant to be a three person job by myself and when I did get help it was from a jark that kept insalting me about my speed. I am a Dyspraxia doing the job of three peolpe, what do you expect. It is like shalting at a blind person for not seeing something. It is not like he does not know about my Dyspraxia, I have explained things to him half a dozen times. Than the person in charge (the jark) left two or three hour earlier than he should of and there was no one to take over the drive thru, I ended up not getting a lunch brake.  When I got home, I clapsed in front of my laptop. I was too tiered to see if the Wii board's battery was charged enough to use. The big Cosplay Deviants announcement was not up of the site let. As it was about five day since Blaire last Twitter, I sent her an e-mail to see what was happening. Later during the evering, Noel came online on MFC and the video of the live recording of DeviantCast came on as well. The big announcement was in it.  Cosplay Deviants will now be doing two updates a week, Wednesday and Saturday. Wednesday is new Deviant day when Saturday is new set from existing Deviants. After watching the video I headed to bed.
Starbucks Coffee

It was Saturday, the start of the weekend.  My dad was off work again so I could not do any Wii Fit. Head off to coffee before work to meet up with my mates like I always do. Normally these days it is me, Richard and Darren manly with Jake at times too. This week Darren was away in Yarmouth and there was no sign of Jake, forgot to ask Richard why Jake did not come. We arranged to meant up to deal with the routers. I had work from 12pm to 5pm. Later is the day when Richard came over we had problems setting up his router, but after a while we managed to set it up. However, later in the evening, his router lost connection to the internet and I had to swap back to my one. So it looks like the problems are not from the router. Other than that there was nothing else to really report. 

Fate/Stay Night
And lastly in was Sunday. Normally the end of the weekend, however it will be a bank holiday on Monday, so the weekend was longer. In was my day off again and I had a ton of things to do with my mum. We had off to Maplin first to get a new filter for the phone line, some AA batteries for my camera and a new power cable for the laptop. Then we headed off to PC World to get some bits for her Notebook. When we got back I then helped her with a bit of tidying. With all the running around I did not have time to do any Wii Fit before my dad got home from work. Richard phone about going out to listen to a random band, but as no one else was coming I that I was feeling tired I decided to not go and have a early night. I managed to watch someone to the anime demo DVDs I get with Neo Magazine from MVM. All were nice but as I have ago to watch already I will only continual with one of the three shows, Fate/Stay Night as I have heard a lot of good things about this show. Also I was really beginning to worry about Blaire, she had been Twittering all week and she never replied to the mail I sent her on Friday, so I sent her another one. OK, she is a big girl and can look after herself, plus it is normal for her to disappear for long periods of time, but it does not stop me from worrying about her. Oh forgetting to say that the internet was working fine now.
World's Finest (Batman and Superman) Duo Figure

Now do I have any plans next week, not really. I will so if Richard and Darren are going to Simon’s thing on Saturday and if they are I would been going to that, but over than that there is nothing really planned at the moment. Wow, writing all of this out really that’s a lot of time. I have however decided not to split the Heroclix and DreamClix post apart for the time being. But if Heroclix does not happen for some reason I will do a DreamClix post instead. Also just learnt that that my internet line speed is 256Kbps. What the hell! I pay for up to 8Mbps speed and only getting a max of ¼Mbps. That is total crap. It explains a lot.  Well I best call it a night. Until next time, enjoy.

Watch, Listen and Read for the week 23rd to 29th August

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed

Welcome to another “Watch, Listen and Read” post. Due to internet problems mid work, I was not able to do much watching then. However my watching system is slowly slowing down One Piece so that other shows can be watched.
On Monday I watched episode 11 of Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, episodes 106 to 109 of One Piece, episode 6 of Code Geass, episodes 3 to 5 of Transformers: Victory and this week’s The Gadget Show. Also pre-ordered Mobile Suite Gundam 00 season two volume one and the last volume of Code Geass arrived in the post. Hippy.
On Tuesday I watched episodes 110 to 112 of One Piece and two Gadget Show web clips (Golf Gadgets and Sporting Challenge).
On Wednesday I did not watch anything due to a long shift at work and internet problems.
On Thursday I watched two Gadget Show web clip (MonoTracker and Top 4 Water Pistols) and episode 113 of One Piece.
On Saturday I watched three Gadget Show web clips (Body And Mind Challenge part onetwo and three), episode 12 of Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, episode 36 of Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ and episode 10 of Dragon Ball Kai.
On Sunday I watched episodes 114 and 115 of One Piece, episodes 6 to 8 of Transformers: Victory, episode 13 of Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, episode 7 of Code Geass, two Gadget Show web clips (Sunglasses Reviewed and Dallas Tests the Fast Jet Luge), episode 22 of Fullmetal Alchemist, episode 1 of Rozen Maiden, episode 1 of Fate/Stay Night, episode 1 of Romeo X Juliet and episode 2 of Turn A Gundam.
The first episode Rozen MaidenFate/Stay Night and Romeo X Juliet were from a preview DVD. Rozen Maiden was nice, but not something I would go out to buy. Fate/Stay Night looks good and I heard that it is a great show so I am planning on getting the first volume. And lastly Romeo X Juliet was an interesting take on the Romeo and Juliet story, however with the amount of show on my watch list it this not intresting enough to continual watching it at the moment.

This week's opening is Ichirin no Hana by High and Mighty Color. This was the third Bleach opening. I was planning on doing Pride, a track done by the same band for Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny. But I could only find one copy on YouTube of the opening version and the video and audio time was badly off sink.

Heroclix, 26th August, Evil Bash

First of let me start off with this statement, this will be the 100th post on “Neoscream’s Log”. Hippy. 100 and still going. There are some major changes coming next week if you have not been reading but do not worry the Heroclix post is still going. However I am currently thinking of giving Dream Clix its own post from next week. This week’s post is massive one, four pages long on word before adding pictures. So by time you add the other teams, what happen and Heroclix news it will most likely be at least a whopping four or five pages long.

As last week's Heroclix never happened as I was not well, me stomach was acting up. Last week's game was move to this week. It was 500 points, 3 actions, villains only. On Monday last week I received a text from Darren about new house ruling on feats.
"FEATS THEME TEAM AND HOUSE RULES. After a lot of thought I've decided that feats will be allowed for non generic theme teams only, and a maximum of 30pts will be allowed no matter what the team build is. As an incentive not to use feats, theme teams will have a 1% allowance on team builds ie 300 = 303pts."
My Team
If I had known this week's event before the last event I would of saved Sinestro Corps for this one. Never mind. I ended up going for Sinister Syndicate team.

Dr. Octopus (Secrete Invasion) 69
Kraven (Vet Sinister) 79
Rhino (Exp Sinister) 79
Beetle (Vet Sinister) 78
Hydro Man (Exp Sinister) 57
Mysterio (Vet Ultimates) 68
Electro (Vet Ultimates) 55
=485 points and three re-rolls.

Fearsome Five
The other teams were:

Fearsome Five
Sabbac (Arkham Asylum) 145
Dr. Sivana (Crisis) 111
Mammoth (Crisis) 118
Shimmer (Crisis) 49
Mikron O'Jeneus (Brave and the Bold) 79
=502 points and 2 re-rolls.

Gorilla Grodd (LE Arkham Asylum) 157
Psimon (Crisis) 94
Psycho-Priate (Crisis) 70
The Top (Arkham Asylum) 80
Despero (Arkham Asylum) 88
=489 points and two re-rolls.

Injustice League
The Joker (Arkham Asylum) 97
Lex Luther (Justice League) 161
Henchman (LE Arkham Asylum) 40
Major Disaster (Justice League) 59
Zoom (Arkham Asylum) 130
=487 point and two re-rolls.

The first game I was up ageist the Psychic team. It was close game but I manage to kill enough of my opponent's force to win it. The second game was the Fearsome Five which my whole team was OK before time. The last game was the Injustice League. Sadly the fact that he was mainly stealthers with good range attacker meant meant I had to get up close to his force meaning I had to suffer poison damage from The Joker and later Henchman. I ended up in last procession sadly.
Injustice League

Next week will be 300 points, rookies only, no figure over 99 points. This while be introesting

There has been no new Heroclix over the last two week from the main Heroclix website, but on HCRealm I found a link to a first look review of Web of Spider-Man that revils, two of the LEs, another Venom and Toxin. There are also lots of great pictures of the figures too. My only problem in the set is that there is too many re-paints in the set. The Spider-man on the wall sculpt is used three times in the set (Spider-Man, black suit Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider) as well as a forth LE one (Venom). In fact about six figures have at less one in set (not including LEs) repaint and the two LEs we know of are re prints of these figures too. Oh the link is I still planning to get it if I have the money and can find it

This week's Dream Clicks will be five figures as there was no post last week. They are giant size figure Sentinel, Master Mold, Goku, Money D. Luffy from One Piece and generic One Piece pirate henchman. But first I want to settle the Shonen Jump Heroclix TAs. I will make them mange base than team. Eg. Bleach and Naruto than Soul Reapers and Leaf
Village. Below is a list of series listed on the Shonen Jump website and what the AT does:

  • Beet the Vandel Buster - Do not know as I have not read or seen it.
  • Bleach - Same as X-Men.
  • Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo - I am not touching this.
  • Death Note - Same as Mystics.
  • Dragon Ball - Same as Fantastic Four.
  • Hikaru no Go - It is a manga about the game Go, so not really suitable for Heroclix.
  • Knights of the Zodiac (Saint Seiya) - Do not know as I have not read or seen it.
  • Naruto - Ignore hindering, water, outside walls and outside blocking terrain for move.
  • One Piece - Same as Ultimate X-Men.
  • Rurouni Kenshin - Do not know as I have not read or seen it.
  • Sandland - Do not know as I have not read or seen it.
  • Shaman King - Same as Sinister Syndicate.
  • Slam Dunk - It is a manga about Basketball, so not really suitable for Heroclix.
  • The Prince of Tennis - It is a manga about tennis, so not really suitable for Heroclix.
  • Ultimo - Have not read enough to make that call.
  • Whistle! - It is a manga about football, so not really suitable for Heroclix.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! - Wild Card. OK, it is a manga about a card game these days (not originally), but I have an idea.
  • YuYu Hakusho- Do not know, as I have not read or seen it.

With that almost settled, there is a change I would like to do to a character already done. Kakashi, instead of leap climb he should have stealth.

The Sentinel never felled that they were done well as a colossal figure. They seemed to last too long and the states and power dropped too quickly. For a booster generic, giant size would feet the Sentinel a lot better. Say 5 clicks with Flight and Indomitable. It should have a trait called, "Anti-Mutant."
"Anti-Mutant: When making an attack action ageist a figure with the X-Men, Brotherhood or Ultimate X-Men TA or the mutant keyword, Sentinel gains a +1 to both attack and damage."
A special Minion power called something like Enforcers.
"Enforcers: Minion - if there is another unit with the Robot keyword within 8" that has a points value of equal to or greater than this figure. This figure gains a +1 to defence."
Master Mold
Also with powers like Running Shot, Energy Explosion, Invulnerability, Toughness, Energy Shield Deflation, Range Combat Expert and Outwit. Starting states of movement 10, attack 10 or 11, defence 18, damage 3 and range 10 with one or two targets. Ever no TA or S.H.I.E.L.D. TA with keyword Robot.

Next is Master Mold. He should be a colossal event figure like Phoenix, Anti-Monitor and Staro. As this should be an event figure I will not be going into as much detail like other figures. The figure should only have one power level but there should be different numbers of Sentinels that it comes into play with.  There should be a trait like Spear Part and special abilities like Factory and Hive Mind.
"Spear Parts: When a figure with the Robot keyword is KOed place a build token on Master Mold's card."
Kid Goku from Dragon Ball
"Factory: At the end of each turn, place a build token on Master Mold's card. Give Master Mold a power action, remove 5 build tokens and place a (giant figure) Sentinel in base contact of Master Mold."
"Hive Mind: Master Mold has Perplex and the feat Brilliant Tactician."

Now for Goku. This will be kid Goku from Dragon Ball and not adult Goku from Dragon Ball Z/Kai. Let me see, he should have special called Kamehamehe and Great Ape.
"Kamehamhe: Goku can use Range Combat Expert. The Goku uses range combat expert his range is doubled."
"Great Ape: at the beginning of your turn roll a D6. On a result of 5 or 6, replace this character with Great Ape on its orange starting line. Existing action tokens from is character are applied to the replacement Great Ape. If replace, no victory points are awarded for this character and the replacement Great Ape is considered to be the same points cost as Goku for all game effects."
Other powers should be Charge, Flurry, Leap Climb, Toughness, Super Strength, Close Combat Reflexes, Close Combat Expert and maybe Willpower. His starting states should be movement 12, attack 10, defence 17 and damage 4. Range 4 with one target. His attack should have a mid or end dial peak at 11 or 12. He should have the Dragon Ball TA and keywords of Kid, Martial Artist, Dragon Ball Gang, turtle shell school and Saiyan. I try ti remember to do Great Ape next week and well another thing missing here.
Money D. Luffy from One Piece

Next up is Money D. Luffy, his should have two traits called Devil Fruit Powers and Rubber Man that does:
"Devil Fruit Powers: If Luffy is in water terrain, he loses all his powers and any other traits, his movement value becomes halve, his range becomes 0 and he gains Earthbound power."
"Rubber Man: Luffy can use Plasticity. After making a successful close combat attack that deals damage, this character can use force blast as a free action."
Other powers he should have are Leap Climb, Charge, Toughness, Super Senses and Incapacitate. Starting states of movement 10, attack 10, defence 19, damage 3 or 4 and range 6 with one target. The One Piece TA and the keywords Pirate, Straw Hat Crew, teen and Devil Fruit.

Lastly generic Pirate henchmen. Most pirate crews apart from the Straw Hats have henchman. They should have the One Piece TA and the keywords Pirate and maybe ever Warrior or Soldier. A special Minion power trait called Crew:
Black Cat Pirates
"Crew: When we revilling you force, pick a non-generic keyword a friendly figure with the Pirate keyword has. This figure gains that keyword for the game. If there is a friendly figure within 8 of this figure, this figure gains a +1 to attack and toughness."
Other powers should be Leap Climb and Blades. About 3 to 5 clicks of life and starting states of movement 8, attack 8, defence 15 and damage 1. Range 4 with targets 1.

Wow, what a whopper of a post. While that is it for this post. Until next time, enjoy.

Wii Fit on the 16 to 24 of August

OK, the will be the last Wii Fit post as it is being merged with the new post that is replacing the "Blaire and Friend" post, which might be called "Neoscream's Life" as this post is too short to be a standard post of its own. Last week I forgot to talk about the new Mii's I added. These where a Dark Elf, Brock from Pokemon, Winnie the Poo and the Undertaker from WWE. Also as Blaire is mainly wearing white tops at the moment I had changed her colour from purple to white for now. OK, now on to my Wii fit results. On Wednesday I had lost 2.5cm in the waist and 4lb. OMG. 4lb is a bit too much to lose in three day. Oh well. Sadly on Saturday I could not get onto Wii Fit as my dad was off work so I could not test my weight. Then on Tuesday I lost 0.5cm and 2lb more. A total of 3.5cm=1.5" and 6lb in the space of 15 days. Wow. It is good to see that I am losing it, but it do worry me a little that losing that much weight so fast was a bit unhealthy, until chat to my mum. Sadly I still need to put together a table. Hope to have one ready for the first ever "Neoscream's Life" post next week. Well until my next post, enjoy.

Blaire and Friends Update, 23rd August (The Last One)

Blaire's twitter picture from the 14th of August

Ok it has almost been two weeks since the last "Blaire and Friends" post. I have several extra things I would like to add to this week's post. Them being computer problems update, Cosplay Deviants/MFC news and a bit of major blog news. Ok, so where to being.
On the 13th a member of PC World staff popped into the place I worked and I asked them if they manage to get any wireless cards in yet. They said yes, so after work I headed to PC World to get one and an external DVD drive for my mum’s Notebook as she was planning on getting one during the weekend anyway. Sadly they did not have wireless card in still, the person I asked must have thought I meant the ones for laptops. I decided to pick up the equipment that turns your mains power into a Ethernet cable and connect the main computer to the hub that way. So I now had internet on the main computer, but it was slow.  But then I also noticed Notebook wireless internet was slow too.
Blaire on MFC, Tuesday 17th of August
On the 14th, there was a Tweet from Blaire. She was at a street parade in Zurich.

"Zurich street parade!! Tons of skin here whoo!""

Then on Tuesday, the 17th, she was on MFC. Sadly I only got the last ten minutes as I was downstairs busy on Wii Fit to notice that she was online until the last moment. I barely could hear what she said as the internet connection was so damn slow. However a couple of hours later my laptop came back from its repairs. Hippy. However the internet was still slow on it as well. I realised that it was my internet that was the problem. Great, not. Blaire was on Skype later on that night. We chatted for about 40 minutes. It could of lasted longer but I was too tired to stay up. Oh and also the fuse blow again on the plug for my laptop. Sadly I need to get a new power cable at point in time. Until then, I have to use the power cable for the old laptop.
This is the main picture on Noel's
The next day, there was a Tweet from her saying:

"Whoo 69 follower! Love that number xxx"

Later on that day, I noticed a profile picture pink haired girl on the MFC homepage that I recognised. It was Noel from Cosplay Deviants, as NaughtyNoel. OMG. Chatting to her and looking at her profile, I learnt that she started MFC sometime last month and that at least two other Cosplay Deviants models were on MFC, Nova (HarlequinJ) the head model of Cosplay Deviants and Nana (Nana_theneko). Wow. They just need to drag Quinn on, lol. I also learnt a couple of things about Noel. I know she played WoW (World of Warcraft) but I did not realised that she was that big of a fan. This finally got me posting in the Cosplay Deviants forums, aiming for the 100 post to become a VIP. So far only 20 post as I write this. Noel was also on MFC the next three days as well.
On Friday morning Blaire posted a Tweet saying:

"On the train to Germany!! Freiburg"

Little did anyone know that it would lead to chaos later that day.
Blaire's Twitter Picture on the 21st of August

"I am 100% lost in a tiny town in Germany... The only one where absolutely no one speaks English and it’s getting dark quick... Don't panic!"

Panic, I was worried and then an hour later:

"Update: I'm in the wrong city, I'm supposed to be 3 hours away. No wifi, no shower :( yes breakfast. Where am I?!? Missing home.."

Oh no. Why am I worrying about how unplanned her holiday is.  The next day there was two Tweets updates on what was happening.

"Thanks for all the love! Woke up to a beautiful sunset..brand new day:) hmm where will it lead me?"
Blaire's first Twitter Picture on the 22nd of August

"Almost back to the swiss border! Somehow did it with no help from the Germans, except a free sprite bought with I found on the ground"

Then there was two more tweets from her on Sunday:

And that was it. The other Smartz girls or Deviants were not on when I was online and free, so I never chatted to them. Sorry, take that back, I did try chat to SuzySmartz on Tuesday however she was busy. Blaire was on both MFC and Skype on Monday for several hours, but I will cover that another day.
Blaire's Second Twitter Picture on the 22nd of August 
Now for the site news, I have decided to make this the last "Blaire and Friends" post. However it will be replaced with a post about what has been happening it my life which will include chatting with Blaire, the other Smartz girls and Noel, but they will not be the mean focus of the post or include tweets, unless they were important. It will be weekly, when I have not decided, I currently thinking Tuesdays, but it will not be this one. I will be posting a new model list soon as well, maybe tomorrow. Well until the next post, enjoy.

Watch, Listen and Read for the week 16th to 22nd August

Full Metal Panic
Ok,ok, it has been a week since the last post. Sorry about that.  Blaire has only been on MFC once when I have been around and as Heroclix did not happen this week as I was not feeling well, there has not been anything to post. There is one bit of news but I will most likely leave that until the next “Blaire and Friends” post. Luckily I can post two picuters this week. Hippy. One of the reason why is that I did some changes to my watching system. Over the week I manage to finish Transformers: (Super-God) Masterforce and moved onto Transformers: Victory. Also about a dozen mangas were dumped too because the site I read them from, One Manga has removed all their mange. All but two of them were not out I english and one of the two that were out in english is quite hard to find.
On Monday I watched episode 137 of the dubbed version of Naruto, episode 94 of One Piece and this week’s episode of the Gadget Show.
On Tuesday I watched episode 4 of Full Metal Panic, episode 9 of Love Hina, episodes 95 to 98 of One Piece and episodes 32 to 34 and commentary for episode 27 of Transformers: Masterforce. Ordered the final volume (6) of Chobits as MVM’s license has ran out which will mean it would of became hard to find.
Yu- Gi-Oh! 5D's
On Wednesday I watched episode 99 of One Piece and a Gadget Show web clip (MyVu Crystal).
On Thursday I watched five Gadget Show web clips (Nikon D60, Node Explorer, Noise Ninja, Pure Highway DAB Radio and Ricoh G600), episode 100 of One Piece, episode 138 of the dubbed version of Naruto, episode 4 of the original Bubblegum Crisis series, episodes 35 to 38 of Transformers: Masterforce, episode 9 for Dragon Ball Kai and listened to episode 241 of Anime Pulse.
On Friday I watched five Gadget Show web clips (Samsung GX-20, Sony Ericsson W890, The Foam Factory, A007 Watch Mobile and A Day in the Life of a Researcher), episodes 39 to 42 of Transformers: Masterforce which finishes off the show, episode 101 of One Piece, episode 213 of the subtitles version of Bleach (is this the worst filler arc ever?) and episode 8 of the writers of Robot Chicken play DnD. The final volume of Chobits has arrived it the post as well.
On Saturday I watched four Gadget Show web clip (A Day in the Life of a Soundman, Behind the Scences of the Wild Challenge, JVC GZ-MG 330 review and Football Challenge), episodes 139 to 141 of the dubbed version of Naruto, episode 43 of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's, episode 21 of Chobits and listened to episode 242 and 243 of Anime Pulse.
On Sunday I watched episodes 102 to 105, the third movie and the "Dream Soccer King" special of One Piece, episodes 1 and 2 of Transformers: Victory and episode 35 of Mobile Suite Gundam ZZ.
I have see the version one list of anime coming this Autumn Season, starting October. Iron Man is on the list again and there is a new preview video for it. The style has changed a lot since the original trailer and pictures.  The major chance is that Tony Stark looks like Tony Stark we know. Also there is season two of To Aru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index). Other than them this is nothing else that grabs me as must watch. But there is one show that is worth noting, Pokemon: Best Wishes, the fourteenth season of Pokemon.  It will cover the Pokemon: Black and White adventures of the main protagonist Ash Ketchum (yes he is still in it unlike first rumoured) in the new region of Isshu.
This week's opening is from Transformers: Victory. Well that is it for this week. Until next time, enjoy.
