What Makes Me Happy: Tokusatsu

I have been a tokusatsu fan since I was a child watching Power Rangers, and even now as an adult watching Super Sentai and Kamen Rider, I keep being impressed by the fight scenes,

compelling characters(well, compelling for a kids show where spandex-clad actors fight people in rubber suits),

and just plain WEIRDNESS… that covers the genre.

It’s cheesy, but it’s a cheesiness I love. Ah, before I forget… the giant robots.

Thank you all, and remember: It’s Morphing Time!


When you lost most of your homework because of Blackboard

This exact thing happened to me yesterday. There I was, about to finish a long thought out mini-essay for another class. Just when I was about to send it in, it turns out that Blackboard had logged off my account due to inactivity. I had taken a small break to get my thoughts going, but I kept track on how long I was gone for. And to make it worse, I didn’t have a saved copy anywhere, and two hours of work went down the drain. Learning experience, I guess… but I’m not getting those hours back. Needless to say, I’m keeping Microsoft Word open for anything I write.
