First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

Image
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 …

Bound Until It Hatches

I got home late at 1am after spending time at Wonderland's annual Halloween Haunt; however it turns out we spent more time on the rides than walking through scary mazes. I should really consider going back to Screemers at the CNE instead but it doesn't have coasters like Wonderland does and I caught a glimpse of Yukon Striker's construction. They've built the first hill with its drop so far and what's funny is every time I'm there, Klockwerks is one of the first rides I get on but instead I rode it last on my way out!

Anyway, after it took a while for me to fall asleep, I had this dream that part of our house; mainly the backyard was destroyed by a tornado. It started when I was called downstairs that a tornado was spotted in the park. I ran down into the basement and curled up in the closet far from the windows; if a tornado actually struck here that would be the exact place I'd hide.

When it was over, I went back upstairs to see the destruction and the dr…

Educated and Spun Starstruck

I wrote back in February how I had this crazy dream that Sabaton was playing at the gym of my elementary school. What a shock, this dream last night was just like that, only better! I've had like what, eight dreams about them since becoming a fan and I've written about all of them that I can remember. Some of those dreams, the band themselves didn't actually appear, but I still count it as a Sabaton dream because it could involve something like me singing one of their songs as I fly through the stratosphere or something!

So, this dream I think is meant to take place months after the events of the previous dream that was in that particular gym. Sabaton announced they were returning to the school to perform and I was thrilled once again showing up in full gear. This time no faculty tried to stop me from getting in when the roadies said I was allowed to attend.



I skipped to the front of the stage and not only were there parents and children there but some people leaning again…

Is Turkey All You Can See?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone; well, just for me and those who are also in Canada too!



I haven't blogged in a whole week, but for some reason it feels like forever even though I've had quiet periods longer than this before.

I've been really busy the past week as my Jurisprudence exam is a month away. I started studying for it mid-August and have already covered everything that should be on the test. Now, I'm just reviewing and also squeezing review of general pharmacy stuff for the bigger certification exam I have to write which I would like to try in April. This Wednesday I'm starting another internship, but this one's different than the ones I've done earlier this year, those were for school, this so I can get licensed.

I mean, for most professions you take your licensing exams right after you graduate; like say you want be a nurse or paramedic. But, for pharmacists and technicians you have get the process started yourself. Might be ideal to do it soon whil…

117 Battles Of Poisous Autumn Twilight - Music Of September 2018

Image
Finally, a title that makes sense! Isn't it wonderful? I was totally worn out yesterday due to being up late on Saturday at my cousin's wedding reception so here I am now writing this a day late.

This month feels totally random as I picked what I heard most rather than anything related to what was going on in my life. The songs of this month are also listed in random order and what is number one doesn't really necessarily reflect what I was listening to the most this time.

I was hoping that September would be the month where things would turn around and at the very last minute, they did. Now I'm glad I'll be busy again because, to be honest, I've been sitting at home too much the past three months!

5. Neil Davidge - 117



Starting with this epic track from Halo 4's ODST. I don't believe I've done any Halo music yet and it's been forever since I've written about the franchise due to my withdrawal from it. That's only because, as you know, I …

Things To Add To The Chaotic Universe

Image
If you've known me since tenth grade, you're certainly aware that that was the year I was obsessed with Chaotic: the Danish trading card game that eventually became a huge success here in North America with a TV show on Teletoon and it became the first trading card game to have an online platform where you could play and trade online. Each card had a code you would enter on the website to upload cards. Though I never did this myself, I was still a big fan as I watched the whole animated series and collected the cards which I keep in a binder.



I wondered for years why the franchise suddenly came to a halt: the cards were no longer in production and the third season was never finished. After immense research, I learned that 4Kids Entertainment that made a deal with the original creator wanted to obtain full rights. A lawsuit was filed, 4Kids lost and Chaotic was officially discontinued. At least, well that's what I remember hearing from this video:



Now, the only mementos I h…

What is Your Name, Chillin In The Corner

Well well well, look what time it is, it's time for another Sabaton dream! I wish I could have these at least every week because they really lift my spirits when times are tough.

I seem to be quite well-known now for writing anything related to them, such as random dreams but hey you know it's one of my favourite subjects and it's a plus that these types of articles get a lot of reads.

I've been having a lot of Sabaton dreams in the past few years and the last few were coincidentally close to a particular event related to the band. My last Sabaton dream was just a month before I was going to see them again in March and the one before that was just a few days before Joakim's birthday and since he happened to be a musician that I have a thing for, yeah you can see where that plays.



But I don't think it's just due to the fact that something is coming up related to the band. Studies have shown that dreaming about famous people you like shows that you are seekin…

Video Game Series I Would Like To Try

Image
Everyone knows I'm a proud gamer. I've played on many different on consoles and now I mainly play PC. My taste in video games has been expanding ever since.

I used to be very picky at the beginning like I only wanted to play games associated with movies and TV shows that I liked, and certain franchises by Nintendo. Then my taste expanded to Xbox games such as their exclusives, then to BioWare's two most successful series, and indie games on places like Steam. The list goes on, but I am itching for more. Video games are my main source of escaping reality for a few hours, so I would like to highlight in this post, a few game series that I am strongly considering pursuing.

1. Dark Souls




A dark fantasy game praised/criticized for its exceptional difficulty. I don't know much about it other than it's hard and stresses the importance of learning from every death you suffer. I have friends who play as does my brother. They have told me some of the basics such as gaining so…
