Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

Another cartoon that I liked that was more geared towards girls was She-Ra: The Princess of Power. It was basically He-Man but for girls and, like many cartoons of the 8o's, a half hour commercial for toys. Tell you what though, I'll put bought of them up here so there won't be any fight -- but I'm putting She-Ra first. ^-^



Interesting fact. I used to have a lot of He-Man toys actually, (Remember, I was born a boy and I actually had all the Rambo toys too.) And when She-Ra came out I totally wanted her. My parents where kind of reluctant at first since it was considered a girl toy. But I convinced them by saying I wanted her because she was He-Man's sister. Although with hind sight, I think I had ulterior motives for wanting it. *grins*

Until then this is me signing off.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

So you might of noticed that a lot of the cartoons I've put up since now have been more for boys. Or rather cartoons that boys would be more interested in considering the subjects of the shows. But being a geeky Tgirl, you have to realize that most of the stuff that is interesting for boys are also interesting to me. That being said, I did like some cartoons that had more of a girl audience in mind.

And one of them that I think was very much influence on me being a Tgirl was Jem. No I'm not saying that she looked like a transvestite... even though she dressed very much outrageously. But I did like all of the stuff that she was wearing in the show and I also was very jealous of that -- I kept thinking; 'Why won't I be able to wear those beautiful dresses.' Little did I know at that time that it was actually possible. ^-^ So without further ado, I present to you the intro to Jem.


See what I mean. This girl was awesome.

Until then this is me signing off.

Camera Get!!!

Hey all,

So last month was my birthday. I went to visit my parents since it was also the long Easter week-end. They got a camera. Not a super high end one. Just a normal one, but it does have 10 megapixels or something like that. ( I'm not one that knows much about cameras. ) Still, this is a pretty cool gift-- that along with J's gifts of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Stephen King's book On Writing. ( Yeah, the other day I started writing something and she thought it would be a good gift to give me. ) I'm quite happy about the camera though since I didn't have any of my own.

I know what you're thinking. A transvestite without a camera, that's unheard of. Sadly it exited in the form of me. I guess I never got around to buying one. To busy to use my money to buy games and movies and make up and clothes -- not necessarily in that order though. ^-^

J was very happy that I got the camera. She actually turned into a veritable Kid Kodak that same week-end. But she's mostly happy that we'll get to document... well me. And with the new computer that has a burner on it now, we'll be able to store those photos on discs. Before that the only camera I had was a little Xbox 360 web cam. Of course it doesn't cut it anymore. And the pictures I did have of myself were lost when my older PC crashed. That really suxxored.

Anyway, this was a long way to get at this.

These are pictures of me we took just yesterday and I'm actually quite pleased with the results despite the fact that I'm sans make up. I don't know if there will be much of these in the future -- the 'without make up' kind. But there should be more pictures period. ^-^

Until then this is me signing off.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

Ok so again I missed a couple of saturdays, but you all know what that means though. Yes more then one videos. ^-^ Lucky you. However there's a twist to this though. See it will all be the same show, but different versions of it. ( Japanese, english, etc. ) Dragonball Z probably is one of the most influential Anime that was ever created. You've all at least heard of it for sure if you've never seen it. I'll admit right away it's not for everyone, but like Tezuka sama's Tetsuwan Atomu/Astroboy, Dragonball had fans around the world.

Japanese Opening 1

Japanese Opening 2

Japanese Opening 3 ( For the 20th anniversary of the show. )

English Opening ( Sorry couldn't find a better quality with that song. )

German Opening 2

French Opening

Spanish Opening

Ok I think this should cover it. ^-^ ( That and you might not even be albe to read this right now since there might be to many videos on my page. O_o )

Until then this is me signing off.

Portal 2 Get

Hey all,

So I got my grubby little mites on Portal 2 last Sunday. I have to say, this game is pure genius -- although I have to admit that it's pretty short. That being said, I still didn't try the multiplayer game which is apparently very good from what I heard.

If you've played the first Portal you pretty much know what to expect, but if you don't, let me explain it in a fairly simple way. This game is basically a 'first person puzzler' -- a first person shooter in which your goal is not to shoot stuff -- or people -- but to solve puzzles. Your gun shoots portals, a blue and an orange one. These portals allow you to enter one and exit the other -- if you enter the blue you'll exit the orange and vice versa. This is basically the core mechanics of the game.

Now it may sound ridiculous, and rightly so if you shoot one portal next to the other, but when you have to cross a gap that you can't go around or jump over, then the portal gun becomes extremely handy. All you need to do is shoot one portal on your side of the gap and the other on the opposite side and voilĂ , you've got a way across. This sounds extremely simple at first -- or maybe super complicated -- but the farther you go in the game, the harder the puzzles become as you need the portals to pass objects, lasers, light bridges and other stuff through them.

The second game starts off... I don't know how many years after the first one, but you still play as Chell only this time you wake up in what seems to be a cheap motel room. You then meet Wheatley, an unsure A.I. core that moves around a ceiling track. He brings you back to the testing facilities of Aperture Science to help you escape -- although how Chell was brought back to those facilities is beyond me. It turns out that the cheap motel room is actually an Aperture prison/suspended animation room.

Once you get at the facilities, you realize that years have gone by since the last time you were there. The testing chamber have decayed and also vegetation has been growing in them for quite some time. Wheatley helps you along your path to freedom but tells you that the only way to escape is through 'her' room. And because of a fsck up on his part, GLaDOS is once again awake. She then takes you and puts you back into the testing chambers just like good old times. I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to spoil it for you guys.

Once again, I must commend Valve on the writing because the sequel makes sense. It doesn't make perfect sense, but it's believable enough for me to get sucked in. The chatter that GLaDOS and Wheatley -- and also other voices -- offers is anything but boring. It also serves to give you insight as to what was going on and what happened to Aperture Science.

The graphics are amazing. Valve really put everything they could into this game. At the same time though, the super awesome graphics leads me to a miner grippe that I have about the game. Loading times/screens, something that wasn't in the first game -- or very little depending on what format you were playing. Portal seamlessly ran from the beginning to the end without any pause for loading. Portal 2 not only has loading screens between each test chambers, but sometimes during the heat of the moment, the loading screen pops up and breaks the momentum. Like I said thought, it's a miner grippe.

I'm dying to try the multiplayer now. Problem is though, I don't want to play with a totally random fscktard on Xbox Live. It would be better to play with someone I know. But I guess I'll make a little sacrifice just to be able to try it. I may fall on someone completely awesome though. In the multiplayer game, you play as either Atlas or P-body. Two robots that GLaDOS created after Chell escapes in the main game. So in essence, it's kinda like a sequel to the single player story. You run around with your friend trying to figure out the puzzles that were created for these two robots. Apparently, some puzzles require simultaneous actions. I will keep you posted if I ever try it.

All in all, I think Portal 2 will probably be the first game that I reviewed on any blog that will receive the highest note. I give this game the perfect score of 5 thumbs up despite it's miner flaws. I suggest you pick up this game. You'll thank me later.

Until then this is me signing off.
