Girls of the Wild's Wallpaper 2

Subject: Girls of the Wild's
Date: January 24, 2012
Format: JPEG
Size: 1280 x 800 || 1024 x 768 || 1600 x 1200
1600 x 1000

Here's another wallpaper made from copy and pasting. This one was actually finished right after the first one. A friend of mine suggested displaying the images of the girls in a dynamic form where every other image is higher than the ones next to them or with their images in a staircase-like arrangement. I'll being trying out their suggestions when I get more images and time to work on it.

Girls of the Wild's Wallpaper 1

Urk. I wanted a wallpaper of this webtoon, so I copied and pasted a few images together. Some parts of the images I copied and pasted had odd pixels in it. I tried to fix it, but it would look even more awkward. I didn't want to spend too much time on it either. If I don't get complaints about making a wallpaper for fan purposes, then I may receive complaints about the quality of the image. I'm still sharing it though. If I went searching for wallpapers of Girls of the Wild's, I'm sure someone else will be searching for one too.

Scheduled 2012 Con Time

I feel like I'm missing out on many of Toronto's anime and comic-related events. There are so many of them!

It turns out there was a mini convention in Waterloo this last weekend. It's called Emiko's Mini Convention. Website: I didn't even know about it until today. The programming looks neat.

Here is a short list of major events I plan to go this year:

Toronto Comic Con and Toronto Anime Con will be held on March 10 - 11 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The entry fee for one day is $20. I will be going on the Sunday. Hopefully it's not as crowded as a Saturday would be. I may miss out on some great cosplays though.

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) will be held on May 5 - 6 at the Toronto Reference Library. Entry fee: free! Seeing how TCAF garnered some attention via the web and certain news outlets last year, it may be even more crowded there this year. I'll be running around the library during Sunday morning or whenever there's a sub-event I want to go to. Autograph sessions, FTW! I'm definitely looking forward to this event.

Anime North is on May 25 - 27 at the Toronto Congress Center. I'll be hanging out around the area on the days my friends plan to go. Will be wearing a disguise to this event.

Fan Expo Toronto will be held on August 23rd to the 26 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. I'm hoping to go on the Thursday, Friday, or Sunday. I still haven't decided. I know the ticket's going to cost more than a good filling lunch. I like the variety of genres this convention covers.

That's all I have for now. In other news, Happy lunar new year!

Anime North 2012: Registration

Anime North is implementing their attendance cap this year. Being the cheap anime fan I am, I plan to help a fellow con-goer by not registering this year and simply hang out around the convention's free zones. Free zones are where the convention staff and volunteers don't check for convention badges to access an area. This means that access to certain panels and events will be restricted.

What I will do when I'm there? Bother the con-goers, as usual.

"May I take your picture?"

As for Toronto Comic Con and Toronto Anime Con on March 10 and 11, I'll have to wait and review my workload. Chances are, I'm not attending. I'm a bit pressured to attend though, since I missed last December's Toronto Anime Con.

Geocities is still alive?

I thought they died. I had a Yahoo! Geocities site before a blogger and the site is still there. I just can't access it anymore:

At least I left it looking simple. I want to remove it because I feel somewhat embarrassed by its contents. I guess I should accept the fact that it'll be there for... ever?

Re-use It: Bread Clips

My mother recently sent me an email on neat ways to reuse some commonly disposed items like egg cartons and small boxes. Bread clips were among the list of disposed items.

If you're living in the Greater Toronto Area and you frequently buy milk and bread by the bag, you may find yourself throwing out one or two bread clips on a weekly basis. Bread clips are the small plastic tags that are used to close milk and bread bags and provide an expiration date. The expiration date would be on one side while the other side is blank.

The email my mother sent me suggested reusing old bread clips as a label for power cords and plugs. After collecting a few bread clips, I tagged power plugs connected power strips around the house. Thanks to the blank side of the bread clip, I could label the tags with the name of the electric device and their corresponding power cord.

So don't throw out your bread tags! They're really helpful.

It is now 2012

Before I go on about how much I'm looking forward to this new year in this coming week, I will list three winter break highlights from last year (which was less than 2 weeks ago).

1. Cleaning my room

I like to clean my room because the stuff I encounter in my room all carry memories. I hide many of my old stuff in boxes and drawers, so I rarely see them. While cleaning dust in my room and making space for a new bookshelf, I found a whole stack of Shonen Jump and Shojo Beat magazines. There was also a small Beyblade and sample PC games CDs. I'm never throwing these things out.

2. Fat pigeon in TTC's Bathurst station

I was in TTC's Bathurst station with a friend and saw a big pigeon. Big pigeon is big.

3. Lego Pokémon

Who's that pokémon?

I know there are Pokémon Lego sets, but I find using normal Lego to make Pokémon much more exciting. My family and I visited the Lego store at Fairview mall on boxing day and bought [literally] a cup of Lego. I got to make a bulbasaur, an ivysaur, and a lapras.

Thanks to the holidays, I found old and new things to do. I plan to finish an old story I've been working on for the past few years and I was introduced to Yugioh star-shipping. I also want to try out this excel-sheet-based landscape pollution modelling activity I found in an old environment workbook, Learning Landscape Ecology.
