Stay Strong Darling One

I waited almost all summer for a special purchase I made, and now it's finally here.

While Lordi is pretty much the event of the year, this might be close to the trinket of the year. There's another thing I've got that it competes against which I will reveal later.

While hooked onto playing Andromeda, I fell in love with Jaal, and the more I pursued him and the relationship deepened, the more I loved him. It was just enough for me to want to have a piece of him with me wherever I went.

I was scrolling through images of his lovely face in mid-June until I came across a custom pendant of his face on Etsy. I placed the order for it in a heartbeat, but then learned from the seller that she would make it for me, and asked me what I wanted for the customization. All I desired was: as long as it looked like Jaal, I would be happy.

It wasn't until the beginning of July; right when I finished the game when she contacted me saying it was finished. When I saw a picture of the completed pendant, it was so adorable, I melted.

Inside I felt desperate to receive it, but when it comes to ordering things online..... especially if you have to coordinate with the seller to get what you want, you have to be as patient as possible, and when it finally arrives, you'll realize it was totally worth the wait.

Then, come August, I was worried the package was lost in the mail (as usual!). There were many times where I would go out just to keep myself distracted. Then, last week, I went to run a short errand. When I returned I saw the truck drive by my house and a tiny package waiting for me on the doorstep. I almost dropped my bags to fetch it. Once I opened it, there it was, the adorable homemade pendant of Jaal's face looking back at me.

I waited so long for it that I wasn't willing to wait to have it around my neck. So, the next day, I immediately went to Michaels to get a chain for it.

"Wherever you go, take me with you."
I have to say I am one hundred percent satisfied with this as a necklace. He looks so adorable on me! If I ever met Jaal's voice actor; Nyasha Hatendi, I would show it to him. But for now, whenever I want Jaal to be with me, I will wear him around my neck, close to my heart.

Rebecca, if you ever see this, once again I thank you for making this lovely pendant for me, you are very talented.

To anybody out there also in love with Jaal, I highly recommend this, you won't regret it. Any nerdy jewelry I find of a universe I love, is worth spending my money on, even more if it's original!



  1. The pendant looks amazing! I'm happy you gave us some info on the creator Rebecca; I know you even tagged her in your Instagram post. I'm sure seeing that pendant around your neck will make a few people want to check her out, and maybe get something of their own! So thank you for that.

    Being patient for a package is difficult, especially when you have to wait for custom work. But it looks like the wait was worth it!

    The necklace really suits him by the way; I like how he falls over your heart. ��

    1. Thank you, yes that is also my intention, and she appreciates me spreading the word. 😊 and Jaal definitely does look close to my heart on this, I prefer that for certain necklaces, especially this and my locket. 💜

Battle Ready for the Third Uprising

WARSAW RISE!!!!! .......and cue the epic riff!

Well, here I am post-gig after Sabaton last night with a sore throat but a happy heart. It felt like only yesterday that I scored a ticket and the gig came up so fast. I had placement to focus on and almost forgot that it was happening until I had more free time. 
I greatly looked forward to seeing them as they are one of those bands holding a special place in my heart, and now, it's my third time. I spent the whole morning and afternoon doing homework, and when I ran out of things to do, I found myself lying around staring at the ceiling waiting until it was close to the time where I could get ready.

Yes it is officially a tradition, I will always wear the complete gear to every Sabaton gig from now on. Fully prepared for battle! Actually, earlier that day I had a nice conversation with whoever runs their Facebook page (probably the webmaster...I think his name is Krister, or maybe it's someone else). I commented saying I was wea…

Sexorcism Era Masks - Detailed Review

As promised, I was going to wait until we received more pictures of Lordi's new look so I could talk about them in a little more detail.

Now, we've got them, and the close-ups look great, so here we go:


Hell on Hooves for sure! OX has definitely been outdone for this era. Some of us are comparing him to Krampus or the devil himself. I love his horns; they kind of have a resemblance to a Qunari and I think these are closer to perfect than ever. The dreadlocks are still there but look even better now that they've got skulls on them. Makes him look like he has pigtails almost!

Making him red this time was a bold move of Mr. Lordi when he was designing the costumes. Now OX truly looks like the Hellbull! The fur is also a staple part of his look, even though he's had it before, I like it more than previous eras. It would be a killer to see him live like this.


Our ancient assassin. I felt like not much about Amen had changed until I got a better look. The shape of the…

Lordi - Sexorcism Track by Track Review

It's time Monstermaniacs, another album released by the band I cherish deeply, I have not done one of these since 2016 and I want to do them more often, because I love what I do.

Lordi's back and just as the way I love them. I remember the first time I saw the title for the album: Sexorcism, along with its track list, I was worried the band was becoming more pornographic. No, they're not actually, Lordi's been doing this all along. What's funny is that in a recent interview on SoundCloud with Mr. Lordi, the album isn't really controversial, that's just the media talking.

But enough of that, I was lucky to have my copy of the CD arrive on the day of release date, so I spent my afternoon listening to it and wow, it was actually better than I expected! So, without any further ado, let's talk about the album track by track.


So, let's start with the title track, I felt like this one served as an appropriate intro with the priest chanting the word…
