First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

At last, after five years of long waiting for an event I thought would never come, it has finally happened! Last night was the most epic night of my life, the most epic of all the concerts I've been to. Lordi was amazing beyond words and that makes the entire wait worth it. At last I can check off the top item on my bucket list.

So, how was it? I went out of my way to prepare for this concert, even if it meant getting ready and eating early so that nothing would come up to distract me, and that's what I always seem to do when I attend concerts that are general admission for everyone.

We arrived at The Opera House at a reasonable time and surprisingly there was no lineup except a few people hanging outside the doors, so we stood near them chatting for hours until it was time for all VIP attendees to go inside. While most people went for the merchandise stand, I bolted straight for the stage, propped myself up in front center against the railing. I did not budge for the rest of …

Migration Time!

Attention everyone!

Might as well get it out now, to make sure to write this down, bookmark, whatever it is you like to do.

After a lot of long hard thinking, I decided it really is time for a change. It's been a good six years here and I will never forget it.

I'm not going to get straight into the details, but I am now officially moving this blog to a new home on Wordpress.

I know, I know, I once wrote earlier how I was going to continue to thrive here no matter what happened, but that was years ago and people change their minds.

So, if you're here, please go to this link:

That is where I will be writing, rambling, reviewing, and dreaming from now on!

I'll keep this public for at least a month to give any remaining readers the time to follow.

So this is not goodbye, I'm simply just moving. Everything is still there, and a few things are still under construction by me on the new website and I am not always fixing it up becaus…

Stars Zone Into a Symphony of Water - Music of January 2019

Welcome to another edition of monthly music and the first monthly music post of 2019!

Some songs I chose this month were really related to new interests I've developed, or memories of older ones. So let's get to it.

5. Kendrick Lamar, SZA - All The Stars



What could have possibly possessed me to choose a song with rap in it? I don't particularly like the genre, frankly I find it annoying, especially in high school, but on occasion there might be a song that I might think actually sounds good. This is a good one.

I first heard it when I watched Black Panther last year. I had heard so many good things about that  movie, how there were so many strong black characters, especially the women. My chance to watch the movie came by surprise. My mom and I were on our flight back home from Punta Cana last year and just as we were ascending, one of the attendants announced on the intercom that Black Panther would be the featured film for the duration of our flight. I think about half of…

Computers Are A Girl's Best Friend

Forget diamonds!

After long period of thinking, planning, saving, and waiting, my first custom PC build, Teletraan I is complete at last.


Behold my new build. I had just got home from work when I found out Canada Computers called me to inform it was ready. With that being communicated, my folks and I drove down the following day to pick my baby up. I spent the afternoon plugging in Teletraan I and making sure everything worked.

After that, I was getting everything installed, just the essentials I use on a regular basis like Office, Steam and Origin for my games, VLC for watching movies/series, iTunes for my music, etc.

So, I'll tell you a little about the specs. I'll be honest, when I first made my list and brought them to CC, I was dead set on those particular specs, but when some weren't available, changes were made and either way, I'm happy because those changes still ended up meeting my needs.

The CPU Intel i7 8700, I believe that's what it was. I wanted a more…

Dropped from Shopping

I told myself I wasn't going to buy anything, not until I had paid the full fee for Teletraan I (which is now in progress of building yippee!), but sometimes I make exceptions.

My mom and Madeline, (my brother's girlfriend, who I consider a friend now) decided we needed to go shopping just for the hell of it. So there went my promise.


We started at L'occitane which is the only beauty store with expensive products that I can splurge on, and not feel bad afterwards. It's because of the quality really. I've been shopping there for years and was never disappointed with the results. All I needed was a cream and shower oil refill, but that quickly turned into double the free gifts and my desire for pure shea butter that won't be as messy to apply like cuticle oil. Almond is my favorite collection and I really want that Terre de Lumiere EDT but not until there's free space on my vanity since it's packed with my current perfumes!


I have a new love for scented can…

Much Needed Rest

So, today was great. I really wanted to get out and do something fun instead of coping myself up in my room studying my pharmacy stuff from nearly 8 - 4 straight. A typical off-day for me between work days. 

My dad was talking about going skiing at Glen Eden with my brother and uncle. He never asked me if I wanted to come but instead, I volunteered immediately. No matter what massive licensing exam you have coming up in your career that you're studying for, a luau day never hurts. 

Even though I don't ski on a regular basis, I can go after several years of inactivity and I still slay the slopes! 

That felt great, I'm sure to get a good night's sleep now.

Come Away From The Crowd With Me

Just what I need on a day that turned out to be very busy!

It's time for me to write about another Lordi dream, because I have to write about every single one that I have.

This one is a little weird and I thought it was going to go on forever. It started when a friend and I were talking on the phone and he reminded me that we had to meet at 10pm for Lordi's concert at an arena. Most headlines go on at 9 or 10 but it still seemed really late. He then said he had to go because he was getting swamped with patients at his workplace who wanted Botox injections.

Mind you, I don't actually have a friend who does that for living, maybe the reason this was mentioned was because I was reviewing some pharmacology notes earlier this week and covered Botox in one chapter! This friend whoever he is, doesn't exist and possessed no resemblance to any of my current friends who are male.

Now, ever had one of those dreams where you are actually in bed and sometimes you think you're a…

The Neutral Zone

You've seen me use this term before to describe my place in a conflict or a fandom. I used to take sides when I was younger, but now I am officially done with doing that.

The following reasons for that is, I'm just done dealing with people who don't understand me, I've had to deal with people who use their age and experience as an act to show superiority, I've faced harassment for being positive and encouraging others to do the same, and I've got too many things in my life outside of that to be concerned about what's right and wrong.

I'm going to use fandoms that I've been part of for years to support my choice. To be clear, when I say these three reasons are for me leaving a fandom, it doesn't mean I'm going to stop buying merchandise or watching the movies/playing the games. It's not about that. It's about the people. You take a look at it in person and we're all one big happy family, but online, it's war. One wrong choice …
