Cordozar Cometh

I just woke up from an extended nap. Tell me if this doesn't sound like an odd dream...

I was considerably younger and at my Grandparents' house. For some reason they were putting up famous people in their guest rooms, but none were staying there at the time. For some reason my wife was there at the house also. She is looking at the walls which have pictures of the famous people as they were staying at the house. She gets to one picture and says "He was here? I wonder if he'll swing by again.". Sure enough, I hear a low rumble of a loud car coming down the street. I go to the front door to see the car and I don't see anything. Just then, what can only be described as Bruce Willis's Honda Civic from Pulp Fiction crashes through the front of the house where i'd just been standing. The door flies open and who should step out...

Snoop Dogg.

He gets out of the car and says "I need to work on my car. Wasn't this a Jiffy Lube?" and leaves a pitcher of what I can only imagine is Kool Aid (based on his entrance) on the table. He gets back in his car, puts on these aviator goggles and a scarf, and says "I'll be back tomorrow.".

That's pretty much how it ended.

Thoughts? I haven't had a crazy dream, or really any dream i've been able to remember when I woke up, in a long time. What does it mean? O_o


Here it comes...

My vacation is in the past now. Bummer. There is so much stuff on the horizon for me, so I will be going back to my 3/4 or 4/5 week uploading schedule. So after my next video, there will be a one week break between that and my next video.

The bulk of my week is consumed by my full time job, my full time college schedule (didn't I graduate already...?), my wife, making videos, and playing Gran Turismo 5. Whatever else...just happens.

I'll be sure to continue my mid-week blog. Even if I don't have much to say...i'm sure i'll be able to talk about Gokaiger pretty regularly once that begins.

Until next time...


P.S. I've update my 1:18 Scale Model Car page. See if you can spot the bitchin' new editions...


Vacation! Some Tokusatsu speak at long last

I'm on vacation from work this week. I was planning on making a bunch of new videos with my new-found freedom, but that has pretty much fallen through. I'm very tired of work and just need my rest I suppose. Next week, i'll be running in top gear until May once again...so I need the rest.

I will, however, be making videos of two of my latest Autoart scale models. A few weeks back I received my Porsche 959 in white and just a few minutes ago I received my Nissan Skyline 2000 Turbo RS-X (R30) in, you guessed it, white. If you want to check out a full list of scale models that I own, click on the 1/18 Scale Model link in the right column, or just click here.

Speaking of pages, I plan on adding more pages. I'm in the midst of typing up a Gran Turismo 5 page where I pick apart a game that took five years for them to make, and less than two months for me to *nearly* complete. I'm at 86% currently. So, ha!

I will be creating some Tokusatsu pages and I will be blogging more about Sentai shows when the opportunity presents itself. To hell with it...I have some time...here goes some random thoughts.

Goseiger: I haven't watched since episode 12. I also saw a clip where Gosei Knight showed up and the rest of the team was covered in poop or something. I'm simply not interested in the show. It struggled from the beginning and felt like an orgy of successful gimmicks from previous shows. No thanks, i'll pass. I don't feel the same great fan reaction that shows like Shinkenger had, either. It feels like filler until the 35th Anniversary show debuts.

Dairanger: It may not be my favorite Sentai series, but it's up there. I've seen it the most aswell. It has insane replay value that no other Sentai series has. So why do I mention it? I have just finished watching it straight through once again. This must be the sixth time i've watched the show. I really love the fight title screens they started doing during the teen episodes. Too bad it didn't last too long.

Kamen Rider OOO: Much like everything since Ryuki, I have no interest in the show. I haven't seen a single episode. I have nothing good or bad to say about it. I just wish people would stop telling me that I need to be watching it. What passes as a Kamen Rider show is a far cry from what I watched as a kid. This new format for Rider shows has nothing for me. So please please PLEASE stop telling what I should be watching. It's not for me.

Gokaiger: I get a lot of messages on Youtube asking for my thoughts on Gokaiger. I can't comment on the show too much (other than I hate the pirate theme) so I will talk a little bit about the toy pictures that have been released. I will be going through this series as cheaply as possible. I noticed that there are a lot of re-issued mecha (that I won't be buying). I guess that's cool. I've already owned all of them once...so there is no need to buy them again. The rest of the toys, nothing has really caught my eye. Shinkenger and Go-onger are the only two series in quite some time to have cool toylines.

Yeah, so I finally have something to say about Tokusatsu in this blog. I really haven't had anything to say due to my lack of viewership. Maybe next time i'll talk about Kakuranger or something. Right?

Anyway, my mp3 player has some battery life in it now. I'm off to shovel snow.



Podcasting? Me? Help!

I'm thinking about starting up a new project. Since I tend to be a person who really enjoys his privacy, this one is quite a doozy.

A little back story...

I *love* when I get bursts of creative energy. I work in a job where I used to have free reign over pretty much everything I did. Years later i'm doing the same work, but I really need to stick with a tight program (when people are watching...). The best thing to happen to me creatively has to be my Youtube channel. I love making videos so much that I even started up a second channel (CCDBZ99) and broadened my horizons on my main channel to include pop culture reviews (Honda ASIMO, Segata Sanshiro, Pepsiman, etc.) as well as the thing that has really been honing my photographic skill, my 1:18 scale car model reviews.

Since last October-ish I feel that I have been in a rut. I really, really need to try something new. The first step was to bring this blog to life. I registered this account god knows how long ago and am finally getting around to using it. The next step...


...I might try micropodcasting. This goes against everything i've built up over the years. I don't like talking in real life, or online. I might be the lone PSN hold-out that doesn't own a microphone. I think I need to atleast try my shot at making some kind of audio Q and A type thing to get started. I'll be taking some time in the future to put a script together and whatnot.

On the otherhand, I feel that not revealing my voice really strengthens what I do with my reviews. Hmmm.

It's still up in the air. I figure...if i'm going to take a chance, it might as well be something that won't leave me maimed or otherwise disfigured.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice?


P.S. No, i'm not going to reveal my face.
P.S.2 Don't be afraid to tell me I should've been doing this for awhile.
P.S.3 Don't be afraid to tell me to take this idea out back and shoot it in the head.
P.S.4 Twitter @CCLemon99


Wasted space no more!

I have decided to finally put this space to use. It's about time! I have been threatening hinting at my return to blogging for quite some time now.

Since my previous blog at *sigh* Myspace has been pretty much abandoned, i've pretty much taken to Twitter with all my ranting and raving. Recently, however, I noticed that exactly almost 87% of my tweets have been about Gran Turismo 5. This does not bode well for my followers (I imagine). So... I have decided that I need to split forms and get myself blogging again. Even if nobody reads this, I will be able to get what I have to say off of my chest.

Expect a lot of talk about Tokusatsu, Cars, my videos (and channel for that matter), and while I still have thumbs Gran Turismo 5. I have a lot to say about all of them. Sometimes 140 characters isn't enough dammit!

Let's see how this goes...
