What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to Social Network Tuesday! Today...I have nothing. Seriously, I have nothing. No one submitted anything! If you have a something you want us to do on a Social Network Tuesday, leave it in the comments here or on any of my other social networks! Anyway, today is Bi Pride Day and apparently it's a holiday to celebrate the bisexuals. I for one am not bisexual and I don't really know anyone who is. But if you know someone who is, give them a pat on the back because today is their day! I mean, it seems to be a big deal. I want to celebrate, but I don't really know how. I mean, I didn't even know it was a holiday until my girlfriend told me. All I know is that you're suppose to wear purple, pink, and blue and I got the blue down (by accident.) But hey, I'll get it right next year. Well, I best be on my way. See you guys tomorrow for Wednesday and everyone have a blessed day! This is BlackStar, logging off.
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to this week's Game Theory, featuring your host BlackStar, along with partners in crime Gatsby and Axum Haslyn!
(Good job on the intro.)
(I agree. You never open a post like that.)
(Is it a crime to try something new every once in a while?)
(No. Not at all. Continue, please.)
(Fine. Maybe I will.) First thing off, before we start, everyone please pay attention to the picture to the left. It has nothing to do with the entire Game Theory, but I like it because it has it do with Lego, which every one loves. I mean look! It's the freaking Legend of Zelda made in a Lego art style! It's awesome!
This is why we let you fanboy over this stuff.
I DO NOT FANBOY!
ANYWAY, this week we'll be analyze a Game Theory that I actually picked out! That's right, me! I picked it out with my own two hands people!
(You didn't pick it out! You've been refusing to give me back my DS for the past week and a half!)
(Shut it before I shut it for you! It was my idea and you two agreed to it.)
(Correction: Gatsby agreed to it. I just needed something to put up for today. Get your facts straight Axum.)
(Can we just get on with it?)
This week's Game Theory was born from the ridiculous flames of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for the Nintendo 3DS and this will possibly be the only time that we have a Mario game related Game Theory without focusing it on the red cap crusader himself!
This time, we'll be orbiting around his younger and disappointingly unrecognized brother Luigi and his major role in his game. For once in Mario's life, Mario can go on an adventure alone with his brother NEEDING TO BE THERE.
(See? This is why I hate Mario. He's a heartless bastard.) More importantly, we'll be focusing on the dream aspect of the game and how they're more then just dreams! And the conclusion may make you rethink Luigi all over again.
So, may we get started?
Yes. Yes we shall.
But first, a quick run down of the game itself. In the game, What was suppose to be a peaceful vacation to an island of dreams, Mario and Luigi must save the island from Bowser (again) and an evil being known only as Antasma who draws his power from the nightmares (which he causes) of the inhabitants. Of course, being the RPG of a a game that it is, Mario and Luigi must fight through waves and waves of enemies using attacks that they NEVER USED BEFORE such as...
A majority of the gameplay is inside of the dreams of Luigi. These dreams are a sandbox kind of game in a way. The worlds her dreams of are full of endless possibility, where all of Luigi's wildest dreams can literally come alive.
And BAM! This is where the Game Theory fully begins to light the candle of our interest! Shall we explain? Or better yet me?
You see, there is an area in Luigi's dream world known as DREAM'S DEEP where all of Luigi's inner desires and intentions are expressed to the player. Phrases like "Wait Big Bro!" and "Don't forget me!" can be heard. This is Luigi wanting his brother to succeed.
Think about it. When you lose a battle, you're revived to give it a second chance. An easier chance if you will. He wants you to win, so he is manipulating the game for you to win. He's breaking the forth wall!
Yes! And to think that we all doubted him before. Of course, we've only scraped the surface of this theory because it holds a darker meaning. A much darker meaning then that.
And what exactly is that meaning? Well...We'll have to save it because we are outta time people! So, see you next week to see the end of this theory and I will see you tomorrow for Social Network Tuesday! This is BlackStar, logging off!
This is Gatsby, wishing you all a fine afternoon.
And this is Axum. Peace Mother F**kers!
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to the Thursday...thing. Sorry I wasn't on for the past few days. (I seriously need something to talk about on Tuesday and Wednesday. Any ideas?) Anyway, seeing that the schedule changed (because of me), I have decided to rant on Thursdays about various topics. (Again, any ideas? Leave it in the comments please :3.) Today, I'll be talking about something that is effecting millions of children world wide. That's right! STUDY HABITS. More like school in general. It's a new school year, and everyone is doing their best to get through school. But it's not only taking a toll on the students, but on the parents as well. There are parents that are ever so supportive of their child(ren) and want them to succeed, and that's a good thing! But then there are the parents who go COMPLETELY OVERBOARD WITH SCHOOL WORK. Allow me to explain a bit. You see, I have a younger sibling who just entered the first grade and her teacher gave her a copy of two hundred words that my sibling should be able to read by the end of the school year. Like, the entire year. Enough time to learn two hundred words. Keep that in mind. Now then, my sister brings the list home and my mother reads it over and helps them out. My sibling wrote down ten words, because that's what they were studying that week. But NO. Mother made her write out ALL 200 OF THEM. Oh, and spell them too.
Now, when studying, the parent is suppose to positively motivate the student to do better. Like "Yay you got it right!" or "Well, you didn't spell it right. But we'll work on it, okay?". Then there's MOTHER, whose more like "Spell the word right or we'll be here all night until you do so!" I, being the annoyingly passive person I am, couldn't even stop this, and I feel bad about that. MOTHER was literally striking FEAR into my younger sibling, with threats of making her stand in one spot for nearly an hour, spelling words. There was even one time when MOTHER said that she would beat my younger sibling if they didn't stop crying. Okay, first off, my sibling was crying because my mother was saying some very hurtful things. Of course they're going to cry more because of that THREAT hanging over their head now. It's insane. See,
WHEN I HELP THEM STUDY, IT'S LIKE THIS
See what I mean? Seriously, people need to calm the heck down just a bit! The school year just started, but no where down the line does it have to become THIS SERIOUS OF A THING. I'm just saying, let your kids study, but allow some free time as well. That's all I have to say to you, because its your mind and I can't change how messed up it is already. I'll see you guys tomorrow. This is BlackStar, logging off!
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to this week's GAME THEORY! I am here with my co-host of a brother Gatsby, who has volunteered to help out with mind trip!
Against my will of course. You did threaten to burn my copy of Mockingjay.
I know. But I care!
Anyway, this week we will be doing the famous theory floating around Lavender Town Syndrome.
Yes! Much speculation has been floating around this since the 1990's and Gatsby and I are brave enough to test, analyze, and review our findings!
And you might be wondering where Axum is at this moment. Well, he's out at the moment. He's busy helping us with another Game Theory that we will be doing next week!
Apologizes for not post a Game Theory last week. We were very busy with this one. But hey, we're done with it now!
Indeed. Now then, let's get started, shall we?
So, let me provide a bit of light on this theory, shall we? On February 27, 1996, Nintendo release the first three Pokemon games in Japan. These three games are known today as "The First Three", seeing that they kicked off the Pokemon series as a whole. These three games were still in there somewhat beta stages when they were released. Pokemon Red, Green, and Blue skyrocketed in sales within the first week of their release.
Of course, seeing that it was still partially in the beta version, there were still a few problems. The one problem in particular that we'll be focusing on Lavender Town and the music with it.
Yes. Lavender Town, named probably after the lavender hue the town has (due to the limited color pallet the Game Boy Color back then), has a very peculiar theme to it when you enter the town. It's not the song, but the frequency within the song itself that has stir this big pot of mystery!
The main theme, now known by just "Lavender Town Song" is a song of binaural beats. This is when (and you need headphones to hear this, which was the only way to hear the music back then when using the Game Boy Color) the left ear and the right ear hear two different beats playing, thus causing your brain to combine them into one song. But the frequency of the song is what is quite strange about it.
The song was said to bring headaches, nausea, and even suicidal and homicidal thoughts to the children and young teens playing this game! Rumors have it that over 200 people committed suicide in the first month of the games' release and even more were hospitalized.
And due to my brother's stubbornness and him endlessly begging for me to help, this is where we came in to test this ourselves.
That is right! After we have tested it on people and listened to it ourselves, the results are quite surprising!
(Axum? What the heck are you doing here?)
(I refuse to be your lab rat anymore!)
Yes. But to be honest, only Axum is the one who listened to the song.
ANYWAY, we've had SO many people listen to the song (as well as Rayden's girlfriend) listen to the song and their feedback was ever so helpful!
Yeah. We test on a wide range of people, ages 5 to 19 and most of them reported NO SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL. They were completely normal in the end.
Then there were people who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines have sent feedback saying that their headaches have either lessened to a few times a day to barely once a week or that they've gone away entirely. It' actually a surprising scientific discovery that we may have made.
Yes! Although it is very odd and annoying, the song itself helps in a huge way!
Yeah it does! Thus, making this theory just a myth.
More of an innocent bedtime story to be precise. Something to scare the children.
Well, I guess that's all for now then. Of course, we will be testing this theory further within the oncoming weeks, so we might do a update in the future.
Might? More like "sure as hell" we will.
Yeah. We have more people to test this on, but we'll be greatly narrowing down the test subjects by a lot, so we'll see what happens.
Until then, This is BlackStar, logging off!
This is Gatsby, wishing you all a fine afternoon.
And this is Axum, saying Peace Mother f***ers!
WARNING: This anime has some amounts of sexual and adult content. Viewers under the age of...let's say 13 are advised not to read this post.
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to the all new BlackStar FRIDAY Anime Review! It's pretty good that I moved the review to Friday then having it on Thursdays, seeing that this would be a good way to end the weekend. Also, I'll be doing this SOLO today, so don't expect anyone just popping in. Anyways, this week, I'll be doing an anime so very strange and complicated that I'll have to split it into two parts in order to fully analyze it. I have to kinda fully explain the anime, so expect spoilers!
This week, I will be review Nazo No Kanojo X, also known as Mysterious Girlfriend X. This is a Slice Of Life Anime with a good amount of romance, but in it's own unique way. Let's just get started, shall we?
Now then, the two see each other every day for about a week, but never really interact until the day the most disturbing thing ever happens. One day, after Tsubaki forgot a textbook, he goes back to his classroom only to find Urabe asleep at her desk. She wakes her up and she leaves, leaving a small pool of her drool on her desk. This is where the show gets, well...
YEAH....and, unbelievably, this is where the story actually starts to gain plot and structure. You see, this was the same moment that Tsubaki fell in love with Urabe, and then there's the drool factor, which is important to the plot as well as ALL OF THE CHARACTERS AS A WHOLE.
So, three days after tasting said "drool", Tsubaki becomes very sick and has to stay home, but this type of sickness goes on for two weeks and starts to get worse and worse each passing day. Finally Urabe comes over (claiming to bring him homework) to explain everything to Urabe. Apparently, she knows that he fell in love with her, for she had fallen in love with him. Urabe claims that the first day she saw him, a voice whispered in her ear and said that he was going to be her first "sexual partner"...
SO, pretty much, Tsubaki, by tasting her drool, formed a bond between the two. If he doesn't have a (somewhat) daily dose of it, he'll undergo withdrawal symptoms. Not regular ones either. More like If he doesn't have it, his body start to have a fever and start to overheat until he eventually DIES. It's not a stroll through the park for Urabe either. If she doesn't give him her drool, it starts to build up like and over boiling pot and starts spewing out. And (I get this from the Uncut Japanese version) if it continues like this, she'll eventually overfill and won't be able to release enough out, causing her to burst like a drool filled water balloon. It's pretty much a life or death type of situation. It's come close to happening once in the anime already.
No drool equals one burning from the inside out while the other one literally explodes like an overstuffed Barbie Doll. Now, why does this happen? Is it some kind of scientific thing or magic?
NOBODY KNOWS! 8D
We are literally never told throughout the entire length of the series. Not a single explanation. NONE. AT. ALL.
But around episode 7 of the anime, the relationship starts to actually take a turn for the better. That is, until another girl walks into Tsubaki's life that makes him have to choose his own feelings. But hey, we'll have to save that for next time!
UNTIL THEN PEOPLE
And I will see you all tomorrow! This is BlackStar, logging off!

What is up people! BlackStar here! I'm back after about 4 days of unwanted vacation. Sorry about that. Weebly was not working.
Tell it to the straight. Weebly was being a B***H! I mean, you butler got onto his website, but you couldn't! What the hell Weebly?! What! THE! HELL!
Yeah. Axum's a bit cranky today. He hasn't slept in about 2 days. He won't tell me why.
It's none of your business.
Fine! Don't tell me. Anyway, we have a few things to tell you guys about, starting with a new schedule starting Thursday!
Yeah! On Thursday, Gatsby and me will finally have our own day here, being able to talk about whatever we want!
It's Gatsby and I. Seriously brother, you must have your grammar correct.
Says the boy who took two months to pronounce "Victoria" right. You used to say it with a d instead of a T.
Okay. Both of you, STOP IT. Anyway, with that being said, I'll be moving my Anime Reviews to Friday and having THINGS OF THE WEEK on Saturday, see that that is the official "end of the week."
On top of the, brother Rayden here has hired a new team member!
Yeah! She's a friend of mine and a serious Grammar Nazi, so she'll be reading over all of my blogs so that there are no errors in the writing or the facts.
On top of that, all three of us will be doing a rant next Wednesday about Pressure and Comparison. It's not what you're thinking about.
It has a lot to do with school. Yes, it's educational.
Which is why you want to come, isn't it...?
Well, we have to go. I have a video, a story, and tomorrow's blog to work on. Stay tuned for Walter Wednesday tomorrow! I'll see you guys later! This is BlackStar, logging off.
Gatsby, wishing you all a fine evening.
And Axum, saying PEACE MOTHER BUCKERS!
What is up people! BlackStar here! Who's excited that school started today! I am, of course. After being stuck in a hot, steaming house in New York for the past 3 months, I am SO GLAD to be free! I'm doing this blog during my Algebra class. Yeah, I started the 11th grade today and so far, I'm loving it. My Algebra 2 class is pretty easy. I only had ONE ASSIGNMENT. That's it. It was pretty cool. I've got nothing to do, so why not get a blog out of the way? Today is Wednesday, so I'm a bit tired right now. I've survived halfway through this week. Only 179 more days to go! So, anyway, Walter's back! Yes, my dear butler Walter C. Dornez has returned from Florida. Or his is still in Florida... I'm not really sure. I just got a message from him this morning, so I was a bit excited about that. Also, I'll be working on a new ATAP (Anime Telling A Poem) today and that should be done in about two weeks. It's my first ATAP actually. Took a while to come up with that term. Well, that's all I have for now! See you guys tomorrow! (Not the same time of course. I mean, seriously. I have school.) Until then, this is BlackStar, logging off!
For all of you faithful viewers out there, BlackStar has asked me to tell everyone that he will not be returning until next Tuesday for he has been called on a bushiness trip.
What is up people! BlackStar here. Happy Wednesday to all of you! I am happy right now because, well, I can't quite tell you! Anyway, I have another thing to talk about to day. And don't worry, this rant won't be a regular thing. Just something I'm going to do every so often.
Now, let me tell you a story. When I was growing up, I was one of those kids who was always scolded when ever I did something bad. I was always called "A bad kid". Okay, this is where the rant starts. I mean, I am emotionally unbalanced. Being called a bad child really did take a toll on me. I mean, I didn't really believe it, but That's just me.
There are kids out there who's entire lives are changed because of it. It tips the balance withing them of good and evil. I mean, in my perspective, there are no bad children. No bad people per say. We just sometimes we're just good people who make bad choices. That's all it boils down too. I mean, sure. There are people who murder others. And THAT'S A BAD THING. LIKE, A REALLY BAD THING! But they do it for a reason. Usually, it's not for a good reason, but it's a reason! All that I'm trying to say is, stop saying that your children are "Bad Kids". Tell them that they make bad choices, but they're still good kids inside!
Well, see you guys tomorrow for my Thursday Anime Review! This is BlackStar, logging off.
