Comments malfunction?

Hello everyone. Now this is a bit of an unusual post, but I have a question and a  request at the same time. As of this morning I have been experiencing problems with  giving comments on posts that I enjoyed reading. At first I thought it was just going into a moderation status, but the comments just seem to disappear into thin air. On some posts I even tried multiple times to place a comment, but every time it just vanishes after I press sent. So, my question is: ” Is anyone else experiencing these problems? “. So far I have succeeded on placing exactly one comment for a post for the entire day, which is seriously getting annoying.

The request I have is could you perhaps check your spamfilters if maybe any comments from me got lost in there? I certainly haven’t commented on every post from today, but I did do so on quite a few. I’m really sorry to be bothering you with this, but if there is one thing I like about blogging it is interacting with everyone. I have no idea what exactly is going on here, or if it’s maybe an error on the WordPress servers or something like that. Whatever it is, it is really annoying. Thanks in advance for checking, and of course let me know in the comments section (if that works that is), if maybe you have ever had a problem similar to this and if there is a solution for it.

Special Features Presents: Embracing the End of life as we know it.

A few weeks ago Karandi from 100wordanime held a contest to celebrate the fact that she had started her Facebook page for her blog. The price for this would be a post written by her on any topic the winner would like. To my big surprise I recieved a message from her telling me that I had won the price! 😀 Now I think most of you already know her as she is I think without a doubt one of the most active bloggers of us all. Pretty much everywhere that I look she manages to give a reaction to posts by other blogs, and also writes a ton of stuff every day for her own blog. She also is one of the kindest persons amongst us, always giving a nice response and needless to say I have the utmost respect for her. It was a great honor to have won this contest, and I asked her to write a post about one of my favorite topics, the post apocalyptic genre. She has made a terrific post for it, the result of which you can find below. All words below are written by her, so if you have yet to discover her wonderful blog, please head over there and subscribe now. I certainly have enjoyed this post, and because it can’t be said enough: thank you very much Karandi for this great price.

Embracing the End of Life as we know it.

This post is for Raistlin who won the 100 Word Anime on Facebook launch competition. Thanks as always Raistlin for your support and for the great topic.
What is the appeal of post-apocalyptic stories? Really, they are set after the end of civilisation as we know it so you could almost assume that any story worth telling was already done and finished. Why not go back and talk about that mutating virus, that war, those final days before the asteroid hit or before the aliens conquered humanity and wiped out everything else?
Well, because that’s hardly the end of the story.
As Ian Malcolm put it in Jurassic Park (or at least the script writers did): life finds a way.
The end of the world is fun and all and watching people try to survive the cataclysm can certainly be good for a few laughs, tears and gasps of surprise, but the more meaningful story, or at least I’ve always found, is in what happens next. What are the next steps for those who don’t disappear in a blaze of glory or have their candle snuffed out?

image

As usual, anime has a plethora of examples to draw upon when thinking about any particular genre. And while I was very tempted to make this an Evangelion post when Raistlin first gave me the topic, I resisted temptation because I still haven’t actually gotten around to writing my review of that anime, and ultimately Evangelion is about an absolute refusal to embrace an unpleasant reality and about the many ways people escape or fight against a grim reality.
So where did I look instead?
I actually had to start with Trigun. While not set on Earth, the story takes place after humans for whatever reason have left Earth to colonise another planet, but due to a particular individual they end up crashing onto a desert planet where survival is quite the feat even before you throw in a certain lawless lifestyle. Despite this, and despite some clearly villainous characters, the main cast of Trigun are decidedly optimistic in their outlook on life. Sure, survival is hard, but while the overall situation can’t change, small steps can be taken each day to secure survival and to help others.
It’s really impossible to watch Trigun and not be infected by Vash’s positive outlook. He isn’t some young and naive child clinging to a dream or an illusion to escape the daily grind. He knows how bad things are and he even knows he is actually responsible for some of the issues, and yet he’ll still flash most people that cheeky smile of his and hit them with “Love and Peace”.

image

No. 6 is another anime where a main character lives in a world that has been essentially destroyed and the only survivors are in the numbered cities. Privileges are quite restricted and as a child, owing to his intelligence, Shion was on track for a very good life. However, one act of compassion, helping a run-away child, had both Shion and his mother face hardships.
Now, in some stories this would be where the main character became bitter and twisted and would vow revenge against the regime, but Shion is mostly accepting of the situation. He continues to act in a way that doesn’t damage his personal integrity, while finding ways to compromise within the frame of the law. Ultimately his hand is forced and he does go into hiding and finds himself at odds with the city, but even then most of his actions are to save the city rather than to see it brought low.
Both of these characters demonstrate strength and perseverance in the face of inequality and injustice. They put the lives of others before themselves and they seek, in small ways, to make their worlds just a little bit brighter for those around them.

And for me, this is what I love about post apocalyptic stories. They give the best and worst characteristics that humanity carries with them a chance to shine.
Thanks,
Karandi

Transformers (1986) review

We all know what it’s like: you start a new blog, and are trying to get your bearings and ofcourse people trying to read your stuff. Today I wanted to share a post from a friend of mine who has just started blogging. And seeing as it is a review from one of my favorite cartoon movies (Transformers), and it’s in keeping with this whole nostalgic vibe I seem to have going, I thought I would share this with you all. Feel free to look around at her site, she has a great review for a series of graphic novels that I had never heard about, but that sound truly interesting. And ofcourse if you like her stuff, please subscribe 😀

Transformers-movieposter-west

Even though I am a cartoon addict (well not addict, but I have seen way too many to be considered a “normal” viewer) and having seen Transformers as a youngster, I never saw the actual Transformer movie.

We started rewatching the transformers series (all ordered from Ebay) and when season 2 was finished we popped in the movie (also from Ebay).

Now the fact that te movie takes place in 2005 is hilarious, as its already a decade past that date and there are still no transformers in our world….(actually its not hilarious, its sad… boring world).

The movie is a complete bundle of sadness in itself. I do not mean that as the movie is bad, on the contrary the movie is great! But almost all the autobots die. ALMOST ALL OF THEM! Even Optimus Prime bites the dust. I can I enjoy this film when not one of…

Blog Update

Maybe a few of you have noticed, but the past few days I have been a little bit less active on my own blog, and commenting on posts from your blogs. Now, no worries, my blog is not going to shut down or anything like that. I have just been a bit busier than usual, (and a bit more stressful lol), as these are the final days before my three week vacation from work. As such I have a lot of things I need to finish before I can finally go on my break. This does mean that in the upcoming days I will in all likelyhood miss out on a few posts from you, for which I apologise in advance. The good news is that after the upcoming weekend I will have a lot more time on my hands. So I thought I would share some things that will be coming up in the next few weeks.

Upcoming Reviews

Movies

image

I have seen quite a number of movies that I haven’t been able to write a review for yet. As you have come to expect from me, these movies are all from very different genres. Reviews that will be coming up are: Kong:Skull Island, The Wailing, Lethal Weapon 2, A Company Man, War for the Planet of the Apes, Don’t Breathe to name but a few.

Anime

imageI am really running behind on watching anime, something I hope to catch up with in my upcoming vacation. I am currently in the middle of watching Corpse Princess, which so far has proven itself to be highly entertaining. After that I am really looking forward to Ergo Proxy, and finishing Black Bullet, which is also a very interesting series. You can expect reviews from all these three shows, and probably a few others that I just need to find time for.

Boardgames

imageTwo boardgames that I have been dying to try out, are the ones that are pictured above. Scythe especially has been gathering dust on my shelf for ages now,and hopefully my vacation will turn that around. Salt Lands is one of my newer purchases and looks like awesome fun, especially since it’s setting is in a Mad Max type of wasteland. Hopefully both games will hit the table soon, and when they do you can expect reviews for both of them.

Books and tv series

image

Ofcourse I can’t forget books and tv series here. I am currently reading the art and making of Alien Covenant, a beautifully illustrated book about the latest Alien movie. Speaking of Covenant, the fantasy epic The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever I finally plan to finish in the coming weeks as well. It is a massive 1100 page epic fantasy novel, which has been an amazing read so far. As far as television series go, the Korean drama Bad Guys I have almost finished and it has been a blast. Next on my to watch list is the spinoff series of The Walking Dead: Fear the Walking Dead, that cronicles the beginning of the zombie outbreak. All these and more will be reviewed in the coming weeks.

Final Thoughts

Now, as mentioned the coming days will definitely be very busy. In the weekend I will be hosting an Asian movie festival at my own home for my parents. It is a lot of fun to do, but also will need some planning from my part (that is selecting the movies and buying the food to get us through the weekend lol). And then there is ofcourse my work, which already is stressful to begin with, not only for these final few days. I will try and keep up with your blogs as best I can, but if I miss the occasional post, please do not bite my head off. I hope there are some things in this update that you are looking forward to. As always thank you for reading, and see you at the next post!

Blog Update

Hello everyone. As some of you might have noticed there has been a lack of activity on my part. Both on publishing posts and reading and responding to posts from your own blogs. Well, the reason for this was that I have been quite ill the past few days with a very nasty type of flu. I had little to no energy and have spent most of the time in my bed, not even bothering to watch any movies,anime or tv series. (Yes I know, it’s when that is starting to happen that the alarmbells should go off). Today is the first day that I feel at least a little bit better, so I hope to catch up on all of the posts that I have missed and responding to them in the coming days. This might take me a while, as I still don’t feel quite like my old self, but I promise to get to your posts as soon as I can.

Animecon 2017

image

Next weekend I will be attending the 2017 edition of Animecon. This Dutch event takes place in The Hague, and as the name suggests there will be a lot of Anime to watch. But this con has more things to offer such as a lot of workshops, a gaming room, various Asian forms of food, a dealer room, and a couple of Asian films to watch. Most notably the Korean box office hit Train to Busan will be one of the movies that will be shown there, a film that I have been looking forward to immensely. You can expect a report from this event after that weekend.

Upcoming Reviews

image

As mentioned I am behind with pretty much everything at the moment, so I hope to publish at least one or two reviews the coming days. It all depends on whether or not  this annoying bug, can finally be defeated by my army of soldiers that have been training for this job for years. Yes…right. You can expect the following reviews to hit my blog in the upcoming weeks.

There is this little Animeseries that has been creating quite a buzz the past few months called Yuri on Ice. Maybe you have heard of it. I only have two more episodes to watch, but just to put your minds at ease, I absolutely loved it. The classic 1982 horrormovie The Thing is also up for a review. I will be doing a post for the Legendary Encounters Alien Deck Building Game as well. This one will be written especially for Madame Vintage. If you have yet to discover her absolutely incredible blog, click on the link and subscribe. She is a wonderful and kind hearted soul, who writes truly terrific reviews on movies both classics, and beyond. Something that is a first for my blog is a cooperative post that I have worked on together with Acacia Aurora. I am not going to give away yet what the post will be about or what we have planned, but it was a really fun idea on her part. I have been honored to have been given the chance to get to work on it, and please do click on the link provided to check out her great blog as well.

Other things you can expect to be covered in the upcoming weeks are the anime series Hundred and Kids on the Slope, the Korean drama series Bad Guys and Pinocchio, the movies Deep Star Six, Wonder Woman and the second part of the Resident Evil movie franchise, as well as a book review of the Back to the Future Ultimate Visual History. And ofcourse there will be some other stuff that usually comes up when browsing through Netflix or Crunchyroll. As always thank you for reading, I’m off to join the fight against the flu bug.

Special Features Presents: Action Movies of the 80’s

The other day I was sharing comments with fellow blogger Hermione Flavia from Wildfiremovies . Now before I get into that, I first want to give a big shout out to her blog. If you love movies as much as I do, then one thing you should do is check out her blog and subscribe. She is an award-winning filmmaker and screenwriter, and her movie reviews are seriously topnotch. From classics movies, to action films and horrormovies, there is almost no end to the movies featured on her blog. Not only that, she is also one of the kindest persons you will ever talk to, so really what are you waiting for: press on the link provided above and subscribe.

Now we were talking about how lately we spent a lot of time in the past and feeling nostalgic, and how so many great action movies were made in the 80’s. This is pretty much how the idea for this post came about. Now I have focussed myself only on the non-science fiction action movies of that era. I might at sometime in the future do a follow up for those kind of films, but right now I am simply going to stick to the good old fashioned normal 80’s action flicks. So grab a seat, take a drink and some popcorn, and let us travel back in time to the wonderful 80’s.

Rambo: First Blood (1982)

image

I have seriously lost count on how many times I have seen this briljant action film. Starring Sylvester Stallone as Vietnam veteran John Rambo, this movie is simple in it’s story telling, but incredibly effective. When John returns home to visit an old friend, the local sheriff thinks off him as a drifter, and tries to force him to leave town. It is not long before things escalate into violence, and the small town becomes a warzone. Stallone is absolutely amazing in his role, and the movie eventually spawned three sequels. The original movie is still the best though, featuring terrific action sequences, a dark atmosphere and the brilliant score of Jerry Goldsmith.

Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

image

Beverly Hills Cop is one of the greatest action comedies ever made. Starring Eddie Murphy as the loudmouth cop Axel Foley, the numerous comedy scenes featured in this film, are even now still every bit as funny as back then. Axel is a cop in Detroit, but pursuing a murder case eventually ends up in Beverly Hills. Meeting two local cops, the three of them set out to find out the truth about the murder. Murphy steals the show in the leadrole, and could not have been cast any better. Featuring great action pieces mixed with perfectly timed comedy, this is also one of those movies that will never get old.

Missing in Action (1984)

image

Now for every good movie, there usually also is a bad one. Missing in action is an action movie that is so bad, that it is actually good and fun to watch. Ofcourse cashing in on the succes of Rambo, this movie starred Chuck Norris in the role of James Braddock. Believing that there are still POW’s being held in a prisoner camp in Vietnam, Braddock returns to the jungle to try and free them. The movie is filled with cliches, bad acting and cheesy oneliners. But honestly that is what makes this B-movie so much fun to watch. Chuck would reprise his role two more times in the sequels that followed this one, and those are every bit as bad. Seriously, what is not to love about that?

Commando (1985)

image

Now, not featuring any Schwarzenegger movies in this post would ofcourse be a big mistake. After the enormous succes of Conan and the Terminator, Arnold was definitely on a roll. In Commando he plays the role of John Matrix, a Black Ops Commando who is happily retired and now lives with his daughter (a very young Alyssa Milano). But when his daughter is kidnapped by criminals, John begins his personal war to bring his girl back safely. With an over the top bodycount, and such classic oneliners as ” Don’t disturb my friend, he is DEAD-tired” this is one of Arnold’s best. Yes, the action is completely crazy, and at times completely unrealistic, but man is this movie a lot of fun to watch.

Cobra (1986)

image

Back in the 80’s Schwarzenegger and Stallone were not exactly the best of friends, and both tried to outdo each other with bringing out numerous films. Cobra is a brutal Stallone movie, where he plays the role of the tough as nails cop Marion Cobretti. In this film he has become the protector of a witness, who is being chased by a murderous cult in order to prevent her from testifying. Crime is a disease, and he is the cure was this movie’s tagline, so you pretty much know what to expect. Lots of shooting, chases and fight scenes, make this film a wonderful addition to Stallone’s already impressive action resumé.

Lethal Weapon (1987)

image

This movie is one of my own personal favorites. This fantastic buddy cop movie, eventually resulted in three sequels which were every bit as fun as the original. Mel Gibson plays the role of the completely crazy cop Martin Riggs, who has to partner up with the close to retirement Roger Murtaugh played by Danny Glover. At first they hate each other’s guts, but eventually a close friendship develops, while they are on the hunt for a brutal gang of drug smugglers. With seriously fantastic action sequences combined with great humor, this movie is a roller coaster ride from start to finish. An absolute must see for every action junkie out there.

Bloodsport (1988)

image

This movie pretty much introduced the world to the “Muscles from Brussels”, mister Jean Claude van Damme. This movie has a very simple storyline, where van Damme plays Frank Dux, a martial artist who has set off to compete in a lethal tournament in Hong Kong. The acting is terrible, but you take that for granted as the action choreagraphy for this film’s incredible fight sequences, is the reason why you need to watch this movie. Brutal martial arts fights, with deadly consequences result in a movie that is not for the faint of heart. One of Van Damme’s oldest, but also one of his best movies.

Above the Law (1988)

image

In Above the Law another martial artist is introduced to the world, the man called Steven Seagal. Above the Law (also known as Nico), sees Seagal playing the role of a Vietnam veteran turned cop, that uncovers a sinister CIA conspiracy. Seagal is not known for his acting skills (I at times seriously wondered if this man had any facial expressions, no offense), but his martial arts skills were formidable. Sadly, these days Seagal is but a shadow of his former self, and plays mainly in (very bad) B-movies. Luckily we will always have his classic movies to look back on, and for an introductory film, this one was highly enjoyable.

Die Hard (1988)

image

To not include this movie, would seriously be a sin. One of the best action movies ever made, it made Bruce Willis an action star overnight. In Die Hard he plays police officer John McClane, who accidentally is caught up in a hostage situation during a Christmas party in a huge skyscraper building called Nakatomi Plaza. His wife is amongst the hostages, and McClane take the fight single handedly to the terrorists. Not a good way to spend the holidays. This movie is simply put: brilliant. Great acting, wonderful oneliners, and very imaginative action sequences make this movie a must watch for any movie lover. The sequels that followed were also very enjoyable, except for part 5 which was absolute garbage.

Black Rain (1989)

image

Black Rain is a movie that might not be known by everyone, but is definitely worth checking out. Directed by Ridley Scott (yes, that guy), it stars Michael Douglas in the role of New York City cop Nick Conlin. When he and his partner arrest a Yakuza member, they eventually end up in Japan. It is not long before they get caught up in the dark and criminal underworld of this unfamiliair country. Black Rain is a very dark but fantastic movie, and features a great storyline and incredible tension that is combined with spectacular action sequences. Michael Douglas pretty much never disappoints and also does a more than decent job in this movie.

Final Thoughts

image

And that brings us to the end of this post, which I now realise has become my longest one to date. I know that this list is by no means complete. A lot of other great action movies were made back in the 80’s and maybe one day I will do a follow up to this post. I had a lot of fun writing this, and it was great to revisit a few of these classic films.

And now it is over to you guys and girls. Did any of your favorites make the list? Were any of them missing? Let me know in the comments section below. As always thank you very much for reading, and see you on the next post!

Tag Challenge: Movies in six words

First I want to thank Hermione from Wildfiremovies for tagging me for this challenge. If you are a movielover (like me) you just seriously have to follow her blog.

Not only that, she is a wonderful person to talk to, and always takes her time to respond to your comments, which is seriously cool.

Now the challenge for this tag is to describe movies in six words, no more, and no less, and do it in a creative way.

My movies in six words

  • Aliens: Man versus Aliens, game over man

This was a lot of fun and actually harder to do than I expected. Thank you again Hermione for tagging me! See you all on the next post.

 

Farewell, Carrie Fisher…

I usually don’t make posts like these, but for this one time I will make an exception. I just read the very sad news that Carrie Fisher, who played the role of the iconic Star Wars character of Princes Leia, has died at the age of 60. Apparently this year has not yet taken enough from us.

What to say to news like this. Pretty much everything you say about it, is just not enough. So I am not even going to give it a try. Carrie Fisher will live on in the work she has done, in the hearts and minds of every Star Wars fan. To coin a phrase that pretty much is going to be read in every item you will read about this “The Force will be with her….always”. Nothing seems more appropriate…

Thank you…..

So….it is almost Christmas, and I wanted to take this opportunity to make a kind of different post this time. In short I want to thank you: the people who have been reading my posts, have supported this blog in some way, given me support, in short all of you 😀

 A look back at the past….

image

It has now been a little over six months since I started this blog. My first post was for the Korean dramaseries D-day, and honestly I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I just figured one lazy sunday night, I would browse through the app store and see if there were any apps that allowed you to create your own blog. That is pretty much how I came across WordPress. Eventually (with the help of some all knowing You Tube videos) I created my website, and published my first post.

And now six months later, I am still writing and having a blast. And this is only because of you, the people who spent time at my blog. One of the most fun things about blogging is the incredible amount of wonderful people I have met along the way. I love reading other blogs (honestly there are so many good ones out there, that are seriously awesome), and interacting with people. That for me has been one of the great thing ever since starting this blog.

The future…..

image

So what’s next? The coming year I will continue to write posts, about everything that I have been writing about the past few months. So you can expect more Anime reviews (Psycho Pass, Steins Gate, Moribito are coming up, to name but a few), but also movies, books, boardgames, tv series, etc. With 2017 right around the corner, and so many cool things to look forward to, I hope to make next year even better.

So that brings me back to the beginning: Thank you all very much, for all the time that you have spent reading my posts, writing a response, or hitting the like button. You are all awesome and wonderful people, and without you, this blog would simply not exist. With Christmas coming up in just a day, I hope you will all have a great time. And even if you don’t celebrate it, have some great time off.

Thank you for reading, and see you at the next post! 😀

The Liebster Award

Hello everyone. I have just been nominated for my first ever blog award: The Liebster Award. Thank you so much Matthew for nominating me. If you haven’t already check out his awesome site featuring reviews, thoughts, and basically all kind of supercool stuff about the world of Anime and beyond. It is really worth your time to do so 😀 Now, this being my first award I actually had to Google a bit on how to do this ( don’t laugh please 😂) so if I have made any mistakes please be sure to let me know.

Here are the rules for the Liebster award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and answer the eleven questions they have written for you
  • Nominate 11 people and give them 11 different questions to answer

I am going to answer the same questions that Matthew, Matt-in the Hatt did, so here we go:

What is your favorite game genre?

I used to be a very obsessive and frankly quite scary online gamer. Those days are behind me now however, and these days I am playing oldschool games without a computer. I guess the more common word for it is boardgames. These I play in the sci-fi/fantasy and horrorgenres. My favorite game genre used to be the first person shooter however.

What is your favorite book genre?

That question is a bit tougher to answer, as I do read a lot of books in all kinds of genres. But I guess I do love the sci-fi/horror genre the most. At least I also think that most of my books are in that genre.

What region do you prefer for comics? ( Asia, America, Europe?)

Most of the comics I read are from Marvel. I just love the superhero stories they make, and I honestly prefer their universe to the DC universe. Lately I am slowly building up an appreciation for Japanese Manga as well.

Why did you start blogging? 

I used to write reviews of movies on my Facebook page, but those were usually short posts. One day I decided that wasn’t enough and I just wanted to reach out to more people, or like minded souls if you prefer, to share my thoughts with on movies, tv shows, Anime…in short all the cool stuff. So that’s why I started blogging. I am loving it so far, and am not regretting it for one bit.

What is the trashiest game you played, or book/comic you ever read? 

I had to dig deep for that one, but I think without a doubt that would have to be Onechanbara Bikini Squad, although I think the word trash is almost too kind a word for it 😀

image

Have you ever tried surströmming and if not, how do you think it tastes? Have you ever tried    mämmi ?

Erm, can’t say that I have on both counts. As I don’t like fish, I imagine the first thing tasting pretty awful, and the second pretty awesome, as I like deserts a lot.

What is the most disgusting (tasting, looking and/or smelling) national delicacy you know of  (where you live?)

Thinking long and hard I can’t think of anything that was a National delicacy and that tasted awful. But I never say never, so I will probably come across something that will fill that bill in the future 😂

What is the funniest word you have heard (and if not in English what does it mean?) 

Living in Holland I think pretty much my entire language sounds funny, but if I have to pick a word I would say “poffertje” No there is not a real translation for it, as it is a national dish, but the best description would be a really small and very tasty pancake. If ever in Holland, make sure you eat some 😀

Please share one personal thing about you. Why that one in particular?

Although I sometimes mask it pretty well, I would say I can be a very shy and insecure person sometimes. But I have definitely made steps improving myself, and so I guess I can be proud of that too. So that is why I am sharing it as well😀

In the console war, where do you stand? 

Well….As I have stopped my gaming days I guess I could say nowhere, but having had my most interesting and quite frankly best gaming experiences on X-box, I would say at the side of the X-box 😀

Recounting the questions I am missing number 11, so I think will just make one up:

Which Anime series have you watched that really had you on the edge of your seat? (And if you don’t watch/like Anime, which tv series) 

The best Anime series I have seen all year for me has been Another. It had me hooked from the start and I could not stop watching it until I had finished it. I liked it so much in fact that I am currently reading the novel the series was based on.

Now as for my nominations (and I really hope I am doing this the right way, so I have just added the links to the nominated sites, hopefully everyone who is nominated will get a message 😀)

The 11 nominees

1. Brenda Rochelle’s Neverland

2.Blame Chocolate

3.Experience Film

4. Manga Corner

5. Lunastarz

6.Fujinsei

7. Raulconde001

8. Kdramakisses

9. The Maniacal Book Unicorn

10. Intense mode

11. Reeltime Dublin

Now I am following a lot of blogs, and if it were up to me, you would all get a reward, because I think you are all awesome. I can only choose 11 though, so if your name did not come up, please know that every blog I follow I do so, because I think it is awesome 😀

That’s all for now 😀
