Prologue

SETH!!!!”
The silence of the house replied to my un-ladylike shout.
“SETH! You f***ing MORON!”
No reply.
Cautiously I stepped in to Seth’s dark lounge. Everything was dark. When I got used to the dark, shadows of the scattered debris on the floor, along with the presence of the second hand sofa, made themselves slightly visible. Seth’s lounge was very tiny but as messy as a rubbish dump. There was only a long three seater couch, a small, broken television and a small ornament rack which had his keys, a photo of me and last night’s dinner on it. Seth was a slob.
I turned toward the door and searched for the light switch. I found it and switched it on but the light didn’t flicker on. Either bulb wasn’t working or he had forgotten to pay the bills. The latter seemed more possible. Sighing, I turned back to the lounge. Only then I noticed a bigger figure on the lounge. Anxiously, I crept closer. Yep, it was Seth, sleeping when he was supposed to pick me up for our date.
I found a candle and a matchbox on the table that held the keys and photos. In it’s light I saw Seth properly for the first time in the last two weeks.
Ohhh…he slept like a baby. Golden blonde hair tousled unkemptly under a handsome face that, even in sleep, showed his wild side. He was hugging the rugged cushion to himself and looked absolutely cute and at peace. The exact reason for my rage.
I put my hands on his shoulders and shook him as hard as I could.
“WAKE UP!” I shouted.
He jerked awake like someone had punched him on the face (something I barely restrained to do). Baby blue eyes widened as he saw me. For a second he looked confused. Then he sat up, grinning ear to ear.
“Hey, Shweet Shiya!” he exclaimed, removing my hands from his shoulder and standing up as I straightened up. “Why are you dressed up? Headed to a party?”
I had to clench my fists to stop it flinging toward him to beat him up.
“No”, I said, through gritted teeth. “I’m waiting…”
He looked up from trying to straighten out his very messy hair. “Waiting for what?”
That did it.

The Halloween Post

If that’s a bit of a handful for ya you’ll find some easier things too. If you want you can just enjoy the picture and move on =D.

Now that's what I call talent. And awesomeness.

Would you like a groom with that?

Who said you need a head to bowl?

Here are a couple of short, ‘scary’ and ‘true’ stories I found on the internet. (If you’re planning on that headless bride costume, you should read the first short story… you can tell people a whole story behind the headlessness!)

There’s a bridge called “Covert’s Crossing” or “Covert’s Bridge” up in New Castle. A young couple had gotten married on Halloween. Around midnight, they were riding in a horse drawn carriage across the bridge at the same time a car was. The bridge was only one lane, so by the time they saw each other it was too late. Story has it that they crashed and the hubcap of the car flew off, decapitating the bride. The police never found her head or the body of the groom. Its been said that if you sit on the bridge on Halloween night around midnight, you can see the headless bride standing on some rocks in the river. They don’t know if she is looking for her head or her lost love.

Here’s one I heard on the radio from a woman who told her story about seeing a ghost, which is scary: A few years ago, the woman and her family had just moved to a new house somewhere in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. One night, her baby son was crying so she got out of bed and went to see him. Suddenly, the baby stopped crying. The woman knew that he must have fallen asleep so she went back to bed. A few hours later, the baby cried again, so she got up and went over to check again. As she opened the door to her son’s room, she saw a boy, about 6 or 7 years old, calming the baby down. When he saw the woman, he disappeared. The woman was shocked and later told her neighbours what happened. The neighbours already knew about the ghost and told her that there was a boy who died from an illness, about 80 years ago, and was buried under the exact place where her baby son’s room is.

Happy Halloween everyone!!


Holiday in Exile…

THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!!!

I know this is a bit of a late reaction but i havent had time to do much on this blog. it’s been work work and getting over the depression that comes with the start of term…

now that i’m talking about school and holidays…did you guys know that holiday is YASUMI in Japanese and school holiday is GAKKO NO YASUMI…pretty interesting, aye???? Those are permenantly learned words from my jap class. yes, gasp all you want, i take japanese Poutyit’s not a big deal and not a such horrid subject. there are positives things about the subject…i don’t get why so many people dislike it. sometimes it’s just so annoying that people do that, judge something without knowing the full detail about it. that brings me to one thing i find very irritating…when people go to great lengths to dislike and say something is really bad and they have never actually done, watched or been in that situation before. Prejudiced much?

anyway, the other reason (apart from whining about school starting and judgmental humans) i came on and wrote this post was because i wanted you guys to check this out…

Robots

14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)

If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Devastator’s hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.

The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.

All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles

Devastator’s parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.

If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.

Disk space

TF1 took 20 Terabytes of disk space. Trans2 took 145 Terabytes. Seven times bigger!

145 terabytes would fill 35,000 DVDs. Stacked one on top of the other without storage cases, they would be 145 feet tall.

Rendering times

If you rendered the entire movie on a modern home PC, you would have had to start the renders 16,000 years ago (when cave paintings like the Hall of Bulls were being made) to finish for this year’s premiere!

A single imax shot in the movie (df250) would have taken almost 3 years to render on a top of the line home PC running nonstop.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

Imax

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Imax frames take about 6 times longer than anamorphic to render.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

ILM screen time

ILM Screen Time is about 51 minutes.

Devastator

Devastator is as tall as a 10 story building.

Devastator has more than 10 times the number of individual parts found in an average car.

Laid out end to end, Devastator’s parts would be almost 14 miles long.

Devastator totals

Number of geom pieces: 52632

The total number of polygons: 11,716,127

The total length of all pieces: 73090 feet

The total length of all pieces: 13.84 miles

A bit of brain sore, that lot of facts. But hope you learned something! And once again, i would like to point out Transformers ROCK!!!

PS: Me and Alisha are gonna update the STORIES AND MORE page. So check it out and comment because these are stories we’ve written and it’s important to us that we get opinions in order to fix them up and improve. Thank you!  Rolllol, i think if i really smiled like that i would break my face and end up with a permenant grin…just like the joker!!!
