Video Games
Recently, I have been watching a lot of episodes of Game Center CX, and as a result, I've found myself playing a lot of old video games. While I was playing a game a few days ago, I came up with an idea for a nice little challenge for myself: try to beat 50 retro games by the end of 2008.

I haven't made a new entry in a while... What's been keeping me busy? School and the activity pictured above: fansubbing. Yup, even though I don't know much Japanese, I...

While browsing around 2ch, I noticed some threads talking about AKB48's new show, AKB 1ji 59fun. To be specific, the thread titles I saw looked like this:

AKB 1ji 59fun 2.4%>>>>>>>>>Idoling!!! Nikki 1.0%>[email protected] 0.8%

Now that AKB48, Idoling!!!, and Morning Musume all have variety shows, people...

I haven't made a league night post in a very long time, so let me first catch up on what's been going on with my bowling activities. The last time I made a league night post was last...

Man... I wish J-Pop acts had the singing talent and ability to remember lines that these K-Pop people have.

We're well into 2008, so I thought I'd make most of my first blog post of the new year about the end of 2007. :D

I got some nice Christmas presents in 2007. This was the first year where I...

"So, I saw Yukorin on TV today..." is not something I ever planned on saying, but it's true.

Last month, the 2007 JPBA/PBA Dydo Japan Cup took place in Tokyo. It's a...

Idoling!!! Downloads

I found a Mediafire page with some Idoling!!! files for download. Right now, it has some episodes of their show and both of their singles. I have a good feeling that we'll soon see more files uploaded on this site.


Yeah, it's mine....

PC Upgrade

I've decided to give my old 3 GHz Pentium 4 machine an overhaul. Recently, I've been seeing more and more videos encoded in MPEG-4 AVC, so I have been playing with it a lot. I like to encode a lot of videos just to test different settings and formats. I'm always searching for a good balance between quality and file size. I've encoded a few...

Saturday Otakon Report!

Posted by Silverbolt, 02 September 2007 · 202 views
Saturday started nice and early for me... Around 7 AM, that is. I don't know if it was excitement or the fact that we were planning to leave at 9 AM, but by 7:00, I was wide awake. I spent a little time surfing the Internet in the morning, but the rest of the time was devoted to getting ready for Otakon. After washing up, eating breakfast, getting...

Friday Otakon Report!

Posted by Silverbolt, 30 July 2007 · 344 views
Over a week after the end of the convention, I've finally gotten around to writing a report about my trip to Otakon. I'm sorry it took me so long to write one. I needed quite a few days to settle down after the weekend, and then I had a bunch of other things to do, like catch up on Idoling!!! episodes and clean up the digital mess that...

AAA at Otakon... Part 2

Posted by Silverbolt, 20 July 2007 · 239 views
Well, the day's finally here. It's the first day of Otakon, and AAA's concert is scheduled for 7:00 PM. After seeing the schedule and noticing that the autograph sessions are on Saturday and Sunday, I had to ask my cousin if he could take me on Saturday, too. Luckily, he said that was OK. I owe him big time. Thank you so much, Ray! :(

It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been meaning to make a post about some new things that I've bought, but I always push it off. Now, they're not really new anymore, but I decided to make a post about them anyway.

First off is my new bowling ball, a Brunswick Vapor...
