Dumping and dumpee.

What a strange day.
Well, another strange day, on top of my past 2 strange days. I recently broke up with my girlfriend, and I've been trying to move on, and Iknow she's found it difficult to do just that. I've tried to take a distance to her, but she's not been taking it well. And I guess I can't blame her. This whole break-up has been a bit of an unusual one for me though. My normal tendency is to cut all contact with the ex, but this time, I didn't feel like that's what I needed to do. Also because I didn't want to. I still care alot for her, but I don't wish to be together with her anymore. Not right now at least. Maybe it'll change down the road - to one or the other side - but right now I know what's right for me - and that's being on my own.
Today, she sent me a text, saying she was going to try and move on. And said goodbye. Normally, I'd be over the clouds. But I'm not. I want to be friends with her, but because I view her as my ex, it's difficult to be "just friends" with her, as long as she wants to discuss everything we did when we were together. That's one of the main reasons for breaking up with her in the first place - the fighting. I think she doesn't understand I need some time to get my head back into the swing of things. As long as she's been trying maintain things the way they were, it pushed me away, because it was not how I wanted it to be.

The amount of different feelings that I've had to deal with over the past few weeks have been.. overwhelming. 2 days ago, there was a conflict with a friend, yesterday that was sorted. Now this thing with my ex today.. The lidt goes on. I'm not trying to get you to pity me, just letting you in on my thoughts.
It hurt, but I guess it's time to move onwards and upwards.



On a different front, I have just over a month left before schools out for good, and that means i can get started with my own business! I'm going to start a little prop-webshop. I'll start small, and hopefully it'll come off the ground sooner rather than later. My list of materials is pricey, but i hope to purchase everything I need at the beginning of next month. Means I can get started, and hopefully have my first few pulls ready within a few days. I need to know what people would be interested in though. I think I'll have to start in small scale, with belts and small props like that. I'll be buying urethane though, so i should be able to make some face masks! I have a few in mind I really want to do, but I'll keep that as a surprise for now. Need to get some face casts done first though!

Until next time, stay positive!

To David Yost

Dear David Yost,

First off, I'm not really sure where to start. Finding out you were going to attend Power Morphicon 2012, was one of the main reasons I wanted to attend this year. Sadly, funds could not support it either, but that's why I sincerely hope you will be able to make it to the next one in two years time.

Now, onto my reason for writing this open letter to you.

We should really start at the beginning for me: I first saw you as the Blue ranger at age 6, and was immediately attracted to the "nerdy'ness" your character, Billy, possessed. He was a help for me personally, through most of primary and secondary (Junior High) school, as I never felt quite in with the in-crowd. Or many years I felt alone, and like I didn't fit in, in any way whatsoever, but when I came home, I could enjoy the adventures of the rangers (on something as old school as VHS!). What I want to say with this is simply, thank you! For being there for me, as well as SO many others, when we felt down.
When I heard No Pink Spandex had done an interview with you 2 years ago, I had to watch it. I didn't know where you'd been for all these years, apart from a few random wikipedia articles.

My heart broke for you, and I was frankly shocked by what you had been through, on set as well as in your private life.
I'm not personally gay, but I have friends who are, and I don't see them as any less of a human, than myself. The fact that you stood by who you were, even during those times where being homosexual was more of an issue for some, than it is today, fills my heart with hope. I'm not sure how to express this properly, but you are an inspiration, to me personally, always have been, and always will be. I hope you continue to do what you believe in your heart is right, and just keep being morphin'!

Your fan from Denmark,

Oliver Mansfield

Strage world

As of late, I have been look deeply into what most call conspiracy theories. No, not the moon landing. This s**t goes way beyond that.
If you can't be bothered to listen to me, go to www.thrivemovement.com and you'll get everything served on a silver platter. It'll probably make more sense than what I say anyway.
Okay. Basically, our world is not as good as I thought it was. "WHOA, big surprise there, huh buddy?". Yeah. I know. But whipe your mind, and try not to think too much about what I'm saying.
I've cited this from the webpage I linked to above.

"Until recently, the controllers have been quite successful at insulting the idea that there might actually be conspiracies going on. “Conspiracy theorists... wackos...paranoid nut cases.” It has been made socially unacceptable to challenge big lies that we are told, because someone might make fun of us. But “conspiracy THEORY” has been turning into “conspiracy ANALYSIS” and finally into conspiracy FACT. When President George Bush Sr. got busted for covertly selling arms to the Contras, his administration was convicted of ...Conspiracy. When the AMA tried to shut down the emergence of Chiropractic, they were found guilty of...Conspiracy."

Just a few examples. If you want more, go to: http://www.thrivemovement.com/the_problem-gda

Basically, there are a lot of issues in this world. I'm going to be so bold to say, it's largely due to the introduction of money, as a trade system.
However, I believe it's simply an outdated system, that has had it's day. Don't believe me? Look at the finacial sector. Can we agree it's all going haywire? And it's not going to stop. It's going to get worse, until the people of the world realisze that money is not our future.

Something i've been thinking is the following: If you could be ANYTHING you wanted to in the world,without having to think about the paycheck, what would you chose? I have a theory that, no matter what people think or believe, I think the choices in regards to career, would be as diverse, as human individuals. Think about it. How many friends have you got, that want to be the same thing? If you ask your friends what they truely would like to become, not based on money, you'd have very odd jobs appearing. And that's a good thing.

On a different note, do you remember in recent years, "the machines" have been taking our jobs away, causing massive unemployment. Well, true. They have been taking the hard labour work away from us. Now, think about a world where all the hard labour, that no one wanted to do, was done by machines?  To be honest, I think this would actually solve the equation. I know you'll probably disagree, say that "what about the people who dont want to do anything?". Well, I agree. There will be. But having experienced doing nothing productive for 2 years, I will guaranty you, that whoever says they dont want to do anything at all, will change their minds pretty soon.

What I'm trying to say is, why live in a world full of hate, bitterness, and cold hard cash, when you can replace all this with love and kindness?

Mr. Blue Sky

Sun is.. Okay, it was shining, but the sky is blue now. Well, it's been more than a week since I last wrote an update from Planet-Oli. Oast week has had it's ups and downs. Today I went to a "open house" arrangement, which consists of different educations one can begin. Sign-Technician caught my eye. Basically, you design and produce signs for anything from restaurants, to supermarkets, private institutions, cars.. Anything you can think of. I'm a bit of a nut for customizing things of any kind, so I think it could be kinda my thing.
My uncle knows a guy who does it for a living, so maybe I'll get an apprenticeship there.


At the moment I'm beyond poor (I have £5($10)) in my account, so I feel a bit stuck with everything. Louise is off to watch Batman Live (again :P ) tonight, so what to do this evening. I received the 'R' for my next cosplay project, so perhaps, if I'm bored, I could look into different fabrics. I need some red (a very specific shade) with a cubic pattern placed across it, but tilted 45 degrees. If you have seen anything like it, don't hesitate to let me know!


I'm in a neutral mood today. Not feeling any of the fandoms right now. Kinda strange, as I'm usually influenced into one of my 3 main fandoms, on a daily basis, be it Power Rangers, Batman or Doctor Who. 
I arranged to see an old friend of mine next Friday, to watch all 3 Transformers movies, but then my cousin called and invited us to his birthday.. It's kind of annoying calling 6 days prior to something like that, when people usually make plans several weeks before a given date. So that kinda pissed me off. On the other side, it means I'll be in Kalundborg Friday evening, so I could jump off at Thomas' instead of going up there Saturday as intended. Then go home Saturday or Sunday morning, or something. I'll have a chat to him about it. 


Right now, I'm listening to some music, and waiting for someone interesting to come on line. What to do though.. Play Batman: Arkham City? Not feeling like it tonight. Re-decorate? Could do. But I'd need materials. Damn it. 


I think that's it for now. Adios!

Allon-sy!

I'm off to the dark and mysterious foreign land, known as Jutland, tomorrow morning. Ahead of me is a 4 hour train ride though. But I should live.

I had a short shift at work today, and shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit I dislike my boss. It's as if he's PMS'ing 11 months of the year, and lightens up at christmas, 'cause his boyfriend gives him sum. Stupid pathetic little man.

I read my girlfriends updated blog last night, and was frankly quite surprised/very happy to see some of the stuff she wrote about me ^^
She's a little.. shy? of being public about the whole girlfriend/boyfriend thing. Well, not shy, but thinks it's gross when other people snog each other into the ground. Which is fair enough. And partly why I was surprised with her blog.
I better tell you something about her. She's geeky. And awesome. There.
Lol, no, she's really great in every way possible. We have a lot of similar interests, and I just love seeing her happy. Thankfully, she's not difficult to please (yeah, go on with the sexual jokes then :P ). We haven't known each other for that long, but I'm more than sure she's a keeper. I care a lot for her already!
Actually, she's so geeky, our first kiss was during the Batman Live show in Copenhagen (HELL YES!). Just thought I'd brag about that! 8D

Anywho. I best be off to bed, so I can't sleep on the train tomor... Wait, what? Damnit. I need to pack my PSP! Or some comics.. Decisions decisions..

Adios until next time!

A worksome day..

Good Morning Vietna.. Oh, wrong radio show.

Today consisted of work, work, mother and boyfriend fighting, training, and cat hurling on floor. Yay!
Well, not that much. I must admit, I feel like I'm getting my ass handed to me everytime I have training. And by a girl!! Okay, I don't care about the fact that it's a girl. Everything just hurts like hell. Is it the same for anyone else? I suppose I could keep it to myself, but I've always been rather verbal, and it kinda comes out as if I have no pain threshold. Which sucks.

I'm beginning to feel this is more of a diary, than anything else. Alright then.
I'm currently listening to the score from the "Green Lantern" movie. It's okay, but James Newton Howard is WAY better with Hanz Zimmer. No offence to the guy or his fans.
Work kinda sucked too. Wasn't much to do, and I got a bollocking from my boss for being honest. I'm sorry, but how does that work again?
Humans.

My coach said, again today, that I should move out. I'm really considering it, but the first issue is money. In this world, no one gets anywhere without money =( Also, I would really not mind moving in with my girlfriend. I love her a lot, despite having only been with her for a short while. The other issue is her, living so far away. My mum's supportive of whatever I do, but she would prefer for me to stay on the island, much like my friends. I can see this from most point of views, and I'm therefor kinda in a dilemma. I guess part of me wishes she would like to move over here. Or, say fuck it, and move far away. LA, far away. Okay, California far away. So much sun, beaches, friends, awesome awesomeness, etc.

Why can't one just study Super Hero?
On that subject, I've been looking into different kind of "heroic" jobs. Fire brigade, the police force.. I feel I'm too vulnerable for those things though. Which pretty much goes against the whole super hero thing. Being powerful and all.

Today, I found out what Genki (japanese) means: Soul! That's just all kinds of funny, considering we have a local Danish convention called "GenkiCon". It really has nothing to do with that. At least in my opinion. About that, I was invited to be a cosplay judge! I'm really looking forward to it! It's also an honour to be asked, as it kind of implies I know a lot about it. We'll see how it goes though. Perhaps I disagree completely with the other judges. In any case, it'll be an experience, and I get to judge, while sitting in cosplay! Total win.

I recently got a hold of a dual screen wallpaper, of our beloved mother Earth. Everytime I 'windowsbutton-D" it, I can't help but get amazed at how beautiful she is. It puts thoughts into my head though, regarding how we treat our only home. At the current rate, things will look like they do in the tv-show "Terra Nova". It takes place in 2149, and the human race has more or less raped the planet for all its resources. It's a scary thought, and, at the rate it's going, true. If this concerns you, my dear reader, too, watch the movie "Home". An A-M-A-Z-I-N-G watch!

After I got home from work today, I started watching some gameplay of Robin, in Arkham City. It makes me want to train more with the han-bo at Ninja. We did do a bit of bo(staff) training today, but I just prefer that half-sized little guy. It also reminds me I need to somehow get a hold or an aluminum pole for that Robin costume.
I also thought about getting materials together, with the girl friend, so we could start sculpting, molding and casting our own masks, prosthetics, etc. It'll save us a lot of money in the long run, instead of having to commission others to do it. My inner creative soul wants to get that stuff done!

Wow, that was a lot. My thoughts have been all over the place today.
'til next time!

Free Wheelin'

Good evening!
Today's been a rather sunny day, with good company, and.. tyre-changing!
I should really keep this random weird stuff at a minimal..

Anywho. Yesterday I purchased a urethane 'R' for a future cosplay. I bet you'll never guess who it is? Okay, you guessed it. Of course it's Robin. Am I predictable? Probably, but who cares 8D
I have a few ideas, as to how to make this costume. First of all, I have a feeling it'll be super comfortable, as he seems to be wearing a type of trouser and not super slimming *cough cough* spandex pants, like the rest of the bats. Also, there's some really awesome looking padding in the ab- and chest area, which will be rather interesting I bet. His boots will be a challenge, but a good one. Also, if you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, check this out: http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z48/Red-Space-Ranger/Robin%20Arkham%20City/Batman_Arkham-City_Series-1_Robin.jpg

I think I might do a lot of the suit myself this time around. I don't really have the reference I need yet, but I'm sure I'll get that in time. Hopefully, but making a lot of parts myself, I can save some money, and not spend a ton, like I usually do..

I feel like writing more, but I think that's it for today. Cheerio!
