I will take a break from the Forum for a bit. Right now, i am way too much into personal stuff, playing games mostly and i just don't feel like coming to this place right now.
I don't know how long i be gone. MIght be one day, or one month. I need to see about that.
SSSSSSSSSee you around guyssssssss.
This is a show that recently came through my mind and that i haven't seen in almost 2 decades.
Starship Sagittarius (in japan called Uchusen Sagittarius) was a sci-fi anime that aired in 1986-1987 for 77 episodes.
The series depicts the adventures of four astronauts who travel through space and visit many planets. On each planet they have an adventure. Each adventure seems to have a sort of morality, like the importance of friendship or about the state of the enviroment.
It had alot of humor in it, but it also dealt with very mature themes at some points. like war, the dangers of nuclear wars, protection of the enviroment, slavery, alcoholism, etc. This all sounds very serious but it*s done in a way that kids can still watch this.
I just recently found the japanese dub with subtitles on it on Youtube with all 77 episodes. It's a very interesting show to say the least.
During the last 2 years i always tried to be the best guy that i could be and i always try to help anyone out if they have any sort of problems. But then there are these episodes that i have from time to time, where i feel like that nobody appreciates me and then i feel totally different.
I sometimes have a feelng that i could just stand up and feel angry, because i feel like the whole world has turned against me and that the whole world is talking badly behind my back. And then there are other moments, where i have the same thoughts and i just feel a very deep depression inside me and i am afraid that i could lose everything that i hold dear, or maybe these people never liked me in the first place.
I really work hard to get rid of these feelings and i really improve myself. But then they come back and i feel i screwed up everything that i have accomplished. I then wish that someone comes to me, saying how much i mean to them and what not. It's a really terrible feeling.
I know that i should always trust my friends, but it's not always easy to battle with these inner demons.
This is incredibly impressive. Theantilove from Deviantart has plotted out the locations of each location of every disney and pixar movie. Of course, the map is missing some movies that came out in the last few years, but it's amazing nonethenless.
Little Mermaid: Caribbean Although the author and original story are Danish, the wildlife is clearly tropical. There is simply no way to have that type of flora and fauna anywhere near Denmark. It is very reasonable that The Little Mermaid movie could take place on the Danish colony, now known as the US Virgin Islands.(thanks so /u/theflyingbarney) Another big clue is the fact that in the beginning of the movie the storm is referred to as a "Hurricane." Something Europeans knew very little about. (thanks to /u/Cheesecakejedi) Brother Bear: Northern Canada, Alaska. The people in the movie are cast as Inuits, who inhabit both northern Canada and Alaska. Meet the Robinsons: US/Canada. Lewis mentions being from Canada but the tone of the family seems like they are American. Bambi: Northern US/Canada. Though originally a German story, the collection of animals clearly indicates North American wildlife. [from the bambi wiki] ""Disney took the liberty of changing Bambi's species into a white-tailed deer from his original species of roe deer, since roe deer do not inhabit the United States, and the white-tailed deer is more familiar to Americans."" Fox and the Hound: Northern US/Canada Although the feel of the movie definitely seems Appalachian, there are simply no Grizzly Bears in Appalachia, which would put the movie more north. Chicken Little: US Generally Midwestern American feel (corn fields are present) but no specifics given Home on the Range: Western US The movie takes place on a cattle ranch with several noticeable arch formations shown throughout. Lady and the Tramp: North Eastern US Small town America feel. Shown celebrating Fourth of July. A song sung in the beginning of the squeal puts the movie in New England. A Bug's Life: Texas/Mexico Border Due to the rainy season present in the movie and flight the grasshoppers take to summer in Mexico puts the movie close to the New Mexico/Texas southern border. Icabod Crane: Sleepy Hollow Explicitly stated Oliver and Company: New York City, US Explicitly stated Pocahontas: Virginia, US Explicitly stated Incredibles: Midwest/Chicago, US My logic for The Incredibles is based mainly on the design of the city. The city definitely does not have a West Coast or Midwestern feel, and my top two choices where either Chicago or NYC. I went with Chicago based on the following comparisons: The elevated trains: The Incredibles vs Chicago Where it is true that NYC has elevated trains, Chicago is much more well known for them and the style of the ones in The Incredibles reflects the Chicago style. The streets: The Incredibles vs Chicago Again, a definite Chicago feel, Chicago has a much more industrial feel to the city streets. City Profile/Water Front: The Incredibles vs Chicago I think this one speaks for itself. Parks/Foliage: The Incredibles vs Chicago . In response to the Emeryville idea. The city is referenced twice: 1. The street names are real Emeryville street names 2. When Hellen activates the GPS in Bob's suit the GPS zooms in on the San Fran area. So it's impossible for it to be both his home town and where Syndrome's secret hideout it. Especially given the long plane ride they must take to get there. Toy Story: Small Ohio town The idea here was to place the Toy Story movies near Chagrin Fall, Ohio which is the popular theory for where they are located. It is based on the idea that it is the home town of Lee Unkrich(co-director of several Toy Story movies), and there is a Go Tigers sticker in Andy's room. (The mascot for Unkrich's high school.) The weather is also consistent with Ohio in that they get a heavy blanket of snow at/around Christmas. Bolt: Hollywood Explicitly stated Cars: Arizona, US Radiator Springs is found on Route 66, significantly East of Los Angeles, which would put it somewhere in Arizona. Lilo and Stitch: Hawaii, US Explicitly stated Princess and the Frog: New Orleans, US Explicitly stated The Rescuers: New Orleans/ Bayou, US Explicitly stated Dumbo: Florida, US Where he is "born" and a bulk of the movie takes place SOUTH AMERICA Emperor's New Groove: Peru Explicitly stated Up: Venezuela Explicitly stated Three Caballeros: Mexico, Brazil and Argentina Explicitly stated
EUROPE Robin Hood: England Explicitly stated The Great Mouse Detective: London, England Explicitly stated Sword and the Stone: England Explicitly stated Winnie the Pooh: England Although the real life bear that Winnie the Pooh is based on is from Canada, the books are actually set in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, England. Alice in Wonderland: England Although never explicitly stated in the movie, the writer was Englishman Lewis Carroll. The Adventures of Mr. Toad: England Explicitly stated Black Cauldron: Mythological Wales The author, Lloyd Alexander, was inspired by Welsh mythology. 101 Dalmatians: London, England Explicitly stated Peter Pan: London, England Explicitly stated Cars 2: England The last and big part of the movie is set in England. Brave: Scotland Explicitly stated Snow White: Germany The movie is not explicit enough to definitively decide its location, so the original work of the Brothers Grimm puts it in Germany. Sleeping Beauty: France This movie is based on the Charles Perrault version of this story, there is an abundance of fleur de lis, and the French national anthem is played to announce the arrival of Princess Aruroa. (thanks to /u/DrRegularAffection) Pinocchio: Italy An Italian story and they are near mountains by the sea. Tangled: Germany The movie is not explicit enough to definitively decide its location, so the original work of the Brothers Grimm puts it in Germany. Cinderella: France When they revamped It's A Small World, Cinderella was placed in France (next to the Cancan dancers and Eiffel Tower) with Jacques and Gus. Video Relevant @ 2:35. Also, one of the new Mickey shorts takes place in France and at one point we see Cinderella. (thanks to /u/rustylime) Hunchback of Notre Dame: Paris Explicitly stated Beauty and the Beast: France Explicitly stated Aristocats: France Explicitly stated Ratatouille: Paris, France Explicitly stated Hercules: Greece Explicitly stated Atlantis: Mediterranean The movie never explicitly states where the Atlantis they are heading for is. The best approximation would be the more historically proposed location which would be in the Mediterranean Sea. A common misconception with this location is that it should be Iceland; however Iceland is the location of the Shepard's Journal, not Atlantis itself. Frozen: Norway The presence of Norwegian architecture, art and landscapes (namely mountains and fjords) put in the movie in Norway.
AFRICA Tarzan: Nigeria/Gabon Although never explicitly stated, due to the wildlife and the proximity to the coast, the movie would have to take place in either Nigeria or Gabon. Lion King: Kenya/Tanzania The location of Mt Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti are located here.
ASIA Jungle Book: India Explicitly stated Mulan: China Explicitly stated Aladdin: Saudi Arabia/Iran Explicitly stated
AUSTRALIA Rescuers Down Under: Australia Explicitly stated Finding Nemo: Great Barrier Reef Explicitly stated
OTHER Dinosaur: Pangea Treasure Planet: Alternate Universe Wreck-It Ralph: Cyberspace Although the arcade has a location in the real world, the characters live in cyberspace, which is an alternate universe to ours. Monsters Inc.: Alternate Universe Wall-E: Future Earth/Space
I always get the question by other big disney fans, who always ask me "what is the better motto for life: Bear Necessities or Hakuna Matata?" I think people go at it the wrong way, because here is what i always answer:
"it depends on what economic system your are living under. With communism, all you need is the bare necessities, because that's what you are getting from the goverment. But Hakuna Matata, you will always run into alot of hardship under capitalism, because you might not make alot of money, so it's like whatever, no worries."
So yeah, that is that. Just looking too much into the messages of movies from my childhood again.
I gotta admit that i am sometimes very flattered when someone comes up to me and says: "Hey, that OC looks awesome and very original." Or if someone wants to roleplay with me, so we both can have a good time. I like the fact that i get this attention and it also gave me a bit more confidence in myself, when it comes to showing off my interest in hypnosis and snakes and a few other stuff.
But there are a few people out there (which i out of respect won't mention) that go a bit too far with it, that take the roleplaying a bit too seriously and take it to certain areas, that i don't want to go into. I am not saying that i don't want to have anything to do with them. I am just saying that these people should consider that behind my ponysona, is a 27 year old man, who dosen't play a character 24/7 and also has other things on his mind.
TL;DR it's great that you are interested in me. But don't go too far with it. I am sure we can become good friends then.
You know guys, it's really incredible. We just received our main goal in our Making Christmas Merrier donation drive of 3000 US Dollars and the year ends in 20 days. When it started, i was a bit skepitical, since it came so fast, but i was really proven wrong.
But then i realized why this is all happening. It's Christmas Time.
It's the one time when we all act a little nicer. We smile a little easier. We share a little more. For a couple of days we are the people we always hoped we would be. It's really a miracle because it happens every Christmas. And if you waste that miracle, you're gonna burn for it. I know.
You have to do something. You have to take a chance and get involved. There are people that don't have enough to eat and who are cold. You can go and greet these people. Take an old blanket out to them or make a sandwich and say, "Here." And if you give, then it can happen, the miracle can happen to you. Not just the poor and hungry, Everybody's gotta have this miracle! It can happen tonight for you all! If you believe in this pure thing, the miracle will happen and you'll want it again tomorrow! You won't say, "Christmas is once a year and it's a fraud." It's not! It can happen every day! You've just got to want that feeling! You'll want it every day! It can happen to you! I believe in it now. I believe it's gonna happen to me, now. It's a good feeling. It's better than I've felt in a long time.
Have a Merry Christmas. Everybody.
RD: Hehe...s-stop it Mesme. T-That tickles.
Me: Hehe, it's over soon. if you behave, you'll get a nice lollipop in the end.
RD: S-Stop Patronizing me...
Just a silly idea i had. Yes, i am turning 27 in 9 days. Yes, i obviously play doctor with my plushies. No, i don't have any regret, eventhough i probably should.
Hello, i am Dr. Messsssme. I cure all of your sicknesssssses, from little knee scrapesssssss, very annoying flusssssss, or if you jussssssst come for a routine checkup. Come to me and you get a Lollipop at the end.
So yeah, i also have some interest in Medicine, so Mesme also is a Doctor from time to time.
Thank you to Crecious for this wonderful pic.

After this season, which in my opinion was the second weakest season (third one is the weakest) i have come to the conclusion, that there is not alot of things left for me, that really keeps me hooked, because our main characters, most of the time this season, didn't had that much progress and some of the best episodes in this season, where actually about side characters.
Let's look at some of the good episodes this season:
The Crystaling Gauntlet of Fire No Second Prances A heartswarming tail The Times they are a changeling Dungeons & Discords Buckball Season The Fault in our Cutie Marks To where and back again
With these episodes, i see a very strange trend here. Our Main Characters, are not the main protagonists in here. They are all replaced by side characters, like Big Mac, Maud, Thorax, Spike (he is a side character for me and always will be) Discord, Starlight Glimmer (she was handled like a side character) etc. While the Mane 6, the characters which where build up tb care the most about, are stepping aside.
It's not only that, but the ones that do actually feature the mane characters as the focus, are actually kinda bad.
Let's look at those episodes:
Newbie Dash Applejacks day off The Cart before the Ponies 28 Pranks Later
I am not saying all are bad. Saddle row review was probably the best episode of this season. But you also have episodes Flutter Brutter, which just made me just made me shake my head.
I think it's kinda clear for me, that these writers just don't know to do with the main characters anymore. Rainbow Dash is finally a wonderbolt. Rarity has now 3 botiques in Equestria, Fluttershy is not afraid anymore, Twilight Sparkle came into her own, as a Princess and the CMC have their Cutie Mark. What else can you do, when the main goal of this series has been accomplished?
Also, some people will probably say "well, what about Scoots disabled wings for example?" They will never tackle this, because they always have played it safe with serious topics. Scoots wings, the question if Twilight is immortal, AJs supposedly dead parents and also if the Mane 6 will have a love interest. These are all stories that are not for this show to tell.
What i hope for, is that they bring Season 7 to a close, as good as they may can, bring out the Movie, which i hope is a good ending for the show and then a few years down the line create a whole new show, with new main characters that can grow and that we can fall in love again.
If you don't agree, that's fine by me. But i think it's time to close the book, that opened 6 years ago.
Just some little hypnosis and snuggle time, with me and my little baby dragon, Spike. He is very relaxed and comfy now.

(Don't take anything what i say is as FACT. This is merely something i did for fun and to also understand my own character better.)
I am pretty sure, some of you have seen it a dozen times by now, being it through fanart or by writing how Mesme Rize is hypnotizing his friends and others, by using his seductive charms, thick coils and his colorful hypnotic eyes. And for whatever reason he does it (mostly for entertainment purposes) there is always one question in our mind, that keeps plaguing us. How does it work?
It may surprise you to know that our lovable snekpone has an ability many could only dream of obtaining. He has what people refer to as the power of psychokinesis. In simple terms, Mesme Rize can manipulate things with his mind, but only on such a small scale. While he can't make objects levitate in the air, or be able to bend a spoon using his thoughts alone, he has managed to train this ability to produce the invisible waves of energy that can act on a victims mind. However, this is nothing close to the same kind of mind-control power a storybook psychic uses to manipulate people. His power, much to our surprise, is a very rudimentary power. In a hypnotic trance, a person's brainwave is at a lower frequency than someone that is awake. Mesme Rize can manipulate a victim's mind, using the invisible waves he can emit, so that their mind matches a similar frequency as that of someone in a hypnotic trance. How this is done is not completely certain, but there is another part to this power of his. These same waves also bombard the frontal lobe, the part of the brain that deals with emotions, long-term memories and motivational responses. The reason for attacking the frontal lobe will be explained later, but what this means is Mesme Rize cannot hypnotize someone from behind, and must hypnotize them from the front.
You may be wondering how this ability of Mesme Rize is related with his eyes. It would be easy to say that the rings are purely an artistic feature, but then why couldn't Mesme hypnotize (for example) Dark Horse with his eyes closed, or if he was completely still, or possibly asleep? Much about Mesme Rizes eyes are unknown, but what is known is he requires the victim's attention when he tries to use his power. When he has a victim's full attention, they will normally lock their eyes with his eyes, and stay completely focused on Mesme Rize while he uses his psychokinetic powers to attack their mind. The reason for that is simple. he requires eye contact to distract them long enough for his powers to work properly. Without a distraction, his victims may be experiencing a number of emotions that interfere with the snekpones ability to attack their mind. With a distraction, it could allow an opening for him to manipulate their mind long enough for it to be difficult to break away.
During the hypnosis, the victim also experiences many different emotions, that makes them fall more and more into a trance. All (or most of them) are:
-loss of all inhibitions -forgetting of responsibilities, situations, consequences, other people, even yourself sometimes -loss of fear of any kind of danger -complete physical relaxation from body untensing its muscles and going limp -overwhelming feeling of lust and infatuation towards the "master" (deep feeling of complete love for them and trust) -almsot all thoughts going through your mind ending up in "mind blanks" and then no thoughts going through at all. in some cases just 100% mind blank all together like you're in a dreamless sleep -sense of suggestability from overwhelming trust
It's safe to say though, that Mesmes Hypnosis technique is completly harmless, as victims don't have any memory loss once they are out of a trance, or have any sort of brain damage, even after multiple uses. Infact, most of them feel very good, considering their muscles and bones will get a few hours of break and total relaxation, even more then they would get through normal sleep.
So don't be afraid, if you cross paths with Mesme next time. Being in his care for a few hours, might even be an enriching experience.
I wonder how many of you actually remember Ecco the Dolphin? He was a character created by Sega in 1993. He had two great games on the Genesis/Mega Drive and a Dreamcast game i never played.
Even less remember that there was a Sega CD version of the original Ecco the Dolphin game. It's pretty much the same game. But what sets it apart is an amazing soundtrack, that takes full use of it's CD based technology at that time and is probably one of the most underrated soundtracks, of the 16-bit era.
Here it is:
(I might step on some people with my opinion. But i don't write this to hurt anybody. In the end, it's just my opinion.)
There have been a number of many people, who demonized the Rio olympics for being held in a country with corruption, a poor society and the infamous zika virus, to the point that they simply don't want to watch these olympics.
First of all, i want to make clear, that this is not what i am here to talk about. I always tried to not bring in politics into international sports events, because in my opinion they shouldn't belong in there.
The Olympics for me, is more then just a mere sports event. It is THE Sports Event. Athletes from all around the World, come to one place, to compete in a friendly competition. It dosen't matter where they come from. It dosen't matter what religion they are part of and it dosen't matter what political believes they have. All they care about is the sport and to give their best.
I think especially in times like these, where everybody is paranoid about death and terrorism being behind every corner, it is a great sign of peace and trust, for these athletes from all different cultures, to be all living in one place for almost 3 weeks. Be it Americans and Russians, South Koreans and North Koreans, or even Israelis and Palestinians.
Some might call it cheesy, but i am a firm believer in the olympic spirit. Olympians don't get alot of money for competing, compared to Football/Soccer, Tennis, or Golf Tournaments, which puts the focus on the sport and the glory even more and i think this is a good sign.
As i am writing this, i am watching synchronized diving and i am amazed by these great athletes. And i continue to have lots of fun.
I know it's kind of a random blog and some might not be interested. But, you guessed it, i do it anyway.
I always thought that the Wii U is a good system to fill your retro needs, because the Virtual Console has some of the best game of all time and some cult classics as downloadable titles

It's been awhile since i made one of these, but this time i thought i make something a bit more therapeutic. This is for everybody, that might suffer depression and feel very alone.
Try to give yourself a few minutes of relaxation and listen to it. Making you realize you're not really alone.
After literally nothing for 2 months, i decided to continue my little marathon of Beyond Belief. This time though, after our season 2 marathon went for too long, i decided to break the season into 2 parts. When the second part comes, i can not tell.
Anyway, the marathon starts tomorrow at 7 PM CET or 1 PM EST in the Lamia Pit: http://equestria.tv/r/The_Hypno_Channel
See you there.
Okay, before i say anything here in this blog, i need to make something clear. This is not a bashing blog against Zootopia. This is more or less a blog about my personal feelings about Disney and the possible direction Disney is going in the future.
For the people who know me, they know i've been a big Disney fan, ever since i knew what to do with a VCR (3 years old.) I pretty much watched all the classic movies back then and everytime i watch these movies, i get a sense of warmness from them. Most of these worlds where so colorful and had so many wonderful characters and you can pretty much lose yourself in these worlds and i can still do it, eventhough i am 26 Years old.
Now, today, at the time where i wrote this blog, i just came back from watching Zootopia. I heard alot of good things about it, but i never really cared to look up any sort of information for it. But i kinda feel like that this is not a movie for me and i think most classic disney fans out there are of the same opinion (just speculation of course.)
First off, it's not a movie i can lose myself in, because it's pretty much the real world and i don't feel any sense of wonder from it. I can go out and pretty much see the same thing. Second of all, this movie is way too political for me. It's mostly about racial differences. When i wanna watch a disney movie, i don't really care about that. Politics are not part of my disney fantasies.
I actually wanted to write a review about this movie, before i watched this movie. But i feel like this would be very unfair. I would've said it's okay, but then people would probably say otherwise and defend the hell out of this movie (who am i kidding, people will probably still come and defend it.) I will say that i liked the relationship between nick and Judy, but this movie just lacked the atmosphere for me, to really get invested into their relationship.
Now, as i recently heard, the movie actually made a billion dollars and seems to be one of the best reviewed movies this year. What does this say about Disney and their direction in the future? Will they make more movies like this? Can i still hope for another classic disney movie, that is based on a book? Or is the disney i know gone now?
If the disney i know is dead, i will just take it with a heavy heart and leave the party, because i don't wanna rant about the "good ol times" year after year. People apparently love Zootopia and that's okay. I don't wanna spit in their soup, as long as they don't spit in mine.
If anybody asked me, to choose between going hunting criminals with Judy and Nick, or to go into the cave of wonders with Aladdin, i think i pick the latter one.
