Transit Advertisements

You know those advertisements in public transit vehicles? They're awesome. Seriously. Try taking some time to read them once in awhile.

When it comes to everyone's safety, we don't miss a thing.

Someone was sitting under this sign.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 2

I went to watch Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 2 with the same crew as last week. It seems no matter how many times I re-watch sad moments in a movie, I tear up.

I emptied out half of the new tissue pack I had with me. Looking forward to Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 3 when it's out (hopefully in Cineplex theatres again).

March Toronto Anime Comic Cons

So I just realized that Hoobystar changed the name of "March Toronto Anime Con" into "March Toronto Comic Con." It must have something to do with the copyright issues and claims they had with Wizard World's Toronto ComiCon back in March 2011. I guess the December Toronto Anime Con's name is changed to Toronto Comic Con from now on too.

Canada Blooms 2013

I was volunteering for Canada Blooms yesterday, and it was fabulous. I got to meet many adorable and amazing peoplein the volunteer room. I must thank you all for putting up with me! :P

On another note, the show had many beautiful displays and interesting content on display. I even got to see greenwalls and solar technology on display!

This year's Canada Blooms is held with the National Home Show. You can still check out the show until March 24, 2013.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 1

A few hours ago, I had the opportunity to watch Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 1 on the big screen. Being in a theater full of otaku was fun, except the part where some many people wouldn't stop talking during the movie. There was even one guy who I thought was recording the movie, but after I told him he shouldn't be recording it, he stated that he wasn't. I checked his phone screen--he wasn't recording but taking pictures instead. Really, man. Can you not take screenshots while watching the movie on your computer? I assure you, the quality of your pictures would be much better.

What was nice was not only all the feelings I had while watching the movie, but being able to meet with friends I haven't met in awhile and friends that I wasn't expecting to meet. I even have a message to one of you friends:

Dear bro from the Madoka movie,

I remember your face from YAMA, but I don't remember your name. You should have reminded me your name, because now all I have to call you by is "nurse-man." I'm not apologizing for calling you nurse-man, because the name sounds heroic to me and you being a male nurse is awesome and inspiring.



What was impressive about the Madoka theater showing is that Cineplex gave out free posters to the first few online ticket buyers AND the first 5 people in line for the movie. The man who received the first poster announced that he was in line for 2 hours before the movie. That's dedication there.

Squirrels could take over the world 10

There was something moving on the side of an apartment across from Seneca College. I took a closer look at it.

Guess what it was? A squirrel.

March Toronto Comic Con 2013

Sunday at March Toronto Comic Con 2013, and there was line up after line up. Pretty exciting business happening there. Oie Lin and I first lined up to get our tickets, then lined up in this super long line into the dealers room, and noticed that there were lines everywhere!

It's official: Toronto's major conventions have become A-class. There were many times in the dealers room where we couldn't move between aisles well. The only way to leave an aisle was to push people or be pushed by people. An S-class convention would be when you're immobilized by crowds and it's like being in a sea of people. You don't get to choose where you go; you move with the flow of people.

Luckily, there was enough space to take pictures. Pictures~

Where can I get nifty outfits like those?

A well thought out and fun game of pipedream: Pipe Trouble!.

What I like about this convention: body pillows.

Body pillows EVERYWHERE!

There were more body pillows around, but I didn't take a picture of them. :P

Also, Daleks. They got their own corner with the Doctor Who Society.

Giant Dalek!!

Doctor Who paper cut out~

Across from the Daleks is the Star Wars photoshoot lane. A whole row of Star Wars backgrounds, stormtroopers, and astromech droids.

I was at a DVD booth when a girl picked up a Princess Jellyfish DVD and suggested it to her friends. I was all "yeah, you should totally watch it! You'll get many nosebleeds from... the cuteness." (I don't know what I was thinking at that time.) The girl who was suggesting the series to her friends agreed with me, but then it felt sort of awkward. I didn't know what to do or say after that, so I inched away from the darling group of girls...

Upon exiting the convention, we were greeted by a Madoka Magica poster. *w*

There was also Gandolf on our way to front street.~

Looking good there, bro.

At the end of the day, I had a pretty small loot.

Happy Birthday, Man

A bunch of friends and I had this amazing plan to surprise a friend with a body pillow on his birthday. The thing is, he is not the type of person who would want a body pillow for whatever reason. That is why we decided to get a body pillow of his favourite character of all time: Princess Daisy from the Mario Series!

In the end, we couldn't find one... so we made one.

With the help of skilled friends, I designed the image. A copy of the image was then painted onto two fabrics in a sort-of-standard size of a body pillow with fabric paint. (I forgot what size I made them.) One of my accomplices provided the stuffing.

To keep the large gift a surprise, we didn't stuff the pillow until after we arrived at the meeting place (which was a restaurant). The pillow was stuffed under the table and handed to the birthday boy right there.

Best awkward birthday moment ever!

I was hoping I could make the pillow look professionally made, but alas, I am but a novice.
