Confessions and stories from a Rockapella groupie wannabe

sigh
i_heart_rocka
I don't really have anything to post right now. since this past weekend was a holiday weekend I thought I would post some blurbs but for some reason I just didn't have the energy or stamina for it

so as a tribute to Roger Moore, here is his cover of Talk to the Animals from his episode of the muppet show (which was actually the last one that aired) because this was the only thing of his I had watched



alright alright I sat through Live and Let Die ONCE. But that was because I was on a Beatles kick back then, oh yeah and nothing was played over the credits because they preferred to show ads for whatever show was coming up next instead....but I'm not sure they even play the themes in the end credits

oh yeah and Nick knows that his channel has gone past 5,000 subs but it doesn't look like he'll upload anything, is he too busy or did Sepamo scare him off?

Once Upon a Spoiler
i_heart_rocka
Okay Last one I promise #OnceUponATimeFinale


And They All Lived Happily Ever AfterCollapse )

welp, I'm in trouble
i_heart_rocka
not at work, not with my parents, not any social media wise, remember at the end of 2015 when I listed all the National Geographic Worlds I had that had the Carmen Comics? well apparently it has gotten some attention from at least one person on youtube, and the admin of the Double Trouble fan group (same person? need proof)

well anyway the person behind that group has begged me to find a way to share it, but I don't have a working scanner, in fact mine stopped working years ago. I could use my smart phone but that thing is three years old and I probably need better lighting.

they said they would make me the fan of the month if I posted more and well as you can see I'm not the avid Photographer I should be

well today is tvlubber's birthday, and I was so hoping there would have been a carmen upload today because he usually uploads something on his birthday, I don't know if he's waiting til the weekend or until he reaches 5,000 subs on youtube, I wish he wouldn't make me wait because, I am sick right now, too sick to go to my volunteer shift, (but hopfully well enough to go back to work tomorrow) I wish my cold would only last ten seconds only (like in the office sketch)

god I wish I had a blizzard machine delivered to my house

I want my tonsils yanked out more than ever

*loud elephant noise*
i_heart_rocka
What?!

OH ALRIGHT I'LL ADDRESS IT ALREADY

I'm sure most of you have heard that a reboot of a certain franchise (that I am obsessed with) that many 90s kids want to see get rebooted is getting it done. And you would probably think I would be jumping for joy right now

to be honest I'm not

*gasps*

yeah recently I realized that considering how bad some reboots are I think I would be willing to live without a Carmen Sandiego movie or reboot or something or other. And I had been kind of happy coming to terms with that just living with episodes I haven't seen. hey it would be new to me

Now before you all ask any questions I'm going to make a few things clear, I don't hate the choice for the voice actress they chose, however she is going to have major shoes to fill because the last person that voiced her is an EGOT recipient, and the new voice has a Golden Globe award and I don't hate the premise it sounds like we could get some answers

though during the weekend I asked a friend of mine to help me find a downloader and I immediately downloaded Beach Blanket Bye Bye on to my compute, with successful results. However I have discovered uh oh I better removed everything from the downloads file afterward this is gonna eat up space in my computer...but then I found out that it's not premiering until 2019, so yeah I kind of feel dumb but I'm sure it'll be worth it, because now that I know how to turn off the ad-on I can turn it on whenever there's a new upload.

also it's going to be on netflix.....which I don't have, well if I'm sure I'll find a way to see it if I wish to

Still it kind of begs the question, why could it have been hidden temple instead? I don't want to lose them before I see them all

Oh yeah I want to make things perfectly clear.....what happens in the reboot will not repeat NOT be considering Canon in my fics

UPLOAD ALERT
i_heart_rocka
Well this is certainly a treat, I had a pretty stressful day at work and this is what I come home to.....A NEW SEASON 4 EPISODE

trust me, you'll like this word on the street, seriously the look on Scott's face when Shark El goes after Greg

you know rose_of_pollux it's a shame that you quit doing Carmen gifs because the WOTS is a totally gifable moment so is the chase



1:61 2:59 3:57 4:24 5:46

Let me tell you how my season went- winter 2017 edition
i_heart_rocka
I am still happily working, in fact for the past couple of days my supervisor put me in charge of the library, and I figured out how to do a couple of things for myself, like how to do loans and returns, everything was find even though I had a little accident back in february that involved my office chair and me leaning bac

and what else oh yeah I have developed a taste for the Bad Kitty books, they are really a laugh riot, I don't know what makes me laugh for Kitty's tantrums or Uncle Murray

well my favourite radio station changed format suddenly 100.5 no longer plays Lite music, now they play 90's and beyond, I prefer to remember the 90's for the crap that was on my screen rather than the crap that was on my radio, even though I do have some positive memories of the music from the 2000s I can do it without over hearing Britney Spears or rap. Right now I have been playing musical stations, trying to figure out which one would be the best one for me

also

well what can I say about the jets, they were so desperate back in January that they brought Ondrej Pavelec back from the moose, and you know what? he proved that he still had it, the person that is our usual goalie is a nightmare, neither of our goalies are up to snuff. But then Pavey got his knee injured and now he's done for the season, and essentially with the jets, personally I would like him to sign on for one more year or at least retire as a jet, if not he should play with Calgary. As I post this there are 5 Canadian teams in playoff position right now and unfortunately the jets aren't one of them

and in more depressing news

I said goodbye to my game consoles and games, I went with my dad to sell them to a place where I usually would kill time before my waso appointments.

is anyone else surprised that Once is getting a musical episode? I'm more surprised that they are not going with Alan Menken to do the music for the episode considering his track record with Disney. Personally I kind of feel that the series should end soon, I don't know how much longer they are going to keep it going, now they want to potentially reboot the series while it is still airing come season 7? ehhh, speaking of musicals


Live action Beauty and the Beast was awesome, loved every second of it, I didn't want to leave the theater. I liked the new songs, I liked how they expanded it a little, and I really liked Josh Gad's performance of Lefou

well that's all I can think of at the moment

Did I mention that Scott liked my post on facebook #4DownOneToGO

#SavePBS

work report
i_heart_rocka
oh man should I Do this because spring is only two weeks away

well today it was nice enough to open my window, and I also went out for a walk, it's a shame that there's going to be yet another winter storm coming on Tuesday


whoa that was rude, apparently ads can pop up on you even while you are writing

recently I have realized that I need to put more tunes on my MP3 player because those bus rides I've been using my mp3 player more often lately as a result of the bus rides, so I did that.

and my binge watch starts next week and still no new uploads not even a repeat. I don't want to beg Jonathan for one.

so small update
i_heart_rocka
I really want to write but I need to get ticked off enough, something needs to aggravate me

anyway I finished up Alien Tales, the ending was rather disappointing but while playing I might have gathered some fan fic fuel, except it would revolve around Thelma when she's complaining that nothing ever happens to her

it's actually been getting warmer lately and I couldn't be happier because I can walk around with a lighter jacket

though I think I may have noticed a snag in my Alien Tales Challenge, what if some of the books are out of print?

needed to post something
i_heart_rocka
maybe I shouldn't keep my eyes on the friends post because I know at least one person hasn't posted anything in over a month even though she has said that she's busy

anyway I've earned my first paycheque today and I'll be going on my first business trip on Thursday with my supervisor (we're buying books for the library)

and lately since I had been playing Alien tales on Play Dos Games (and a little Carmen in between) I've been thinking about starting something called the Alien Tales challenge, where I would challenge people to read the books that were used in the game, and I mean read the entire books not just the excerpts, however if you have already read any of the books that are listed there, you won't have to read it, which means if I took the challenge I wouldn't have to read Charlotte's Web (because face it everyone's read Charlotte's web) and Hatchet (5th grade)

the game has made me want to read Anastasia Krupnik who I am starting to think may have been a pre-cursor to Daria Morgendorfer

did I mention that my phone is driving me crazy? everytime I use the facebook app the phone restarts itself, well I've had it, I'm taking it in today

Why haven't I done this sooner?
i_heart_rocka
so tomorrow I start my very first salaried job, and the last couple of weeks has been kind of my workerlerette party

today I have noticed that a game I had wanted to play so badly has made it onto the archives.org but there's just one problem, it won't play on the site it offers a download link which I reluctantly did, and then the disc maker opened up and said to insert a blank disc which I did get (we have a buttload of blank dvds downstairs) and I did that, it was successful but I couldn't use it in my mom's computer because it's newer, and my laptop is getting older (and the disk drive won't co-operate) and there's so much crap in the way where the XP is.....so I decided to risk getting injured and tried it on the XP and you know what?




IT WORKED! now I want to try and download Carmen 3.5 onto a blank disc as well as another game I want to play and I can shut up that nostalgia gaming center of my brain


oh by the way the game I installed was Alien Tales

and it's not working as well as I would hope because it crashes, and on my laptop it suffers the same issue with the old carmen game, no sound when the game is on, and now my laptop disk drive won't close at all

and to make matters worse I couldn't download anything from Macintosh Gardens.

however there is a small victory I can say, I asked Play dos games to add Alien Tales to the site, and they did.

Let Me Tell You How My Year Went
i_heart_rocka
oh man, it's times like this I wish I could drink

news wise it was terrible (what's just as bad is 2016 really went after Rugrats voice actors) but personally, the year was just okay. Considering that I got to work, alot. I just wish I could put the same amount of effort into my fan fiction like I used to

right now the only resolution I am making is that I want to keep the job I was employed for as long as possible

my hopes for the new year is that I survive it, and I wish even more that some more season 4 episodes of Carmen would show up on youtube, and that I hope I can find a way to make my computer faster

Next year I think I might give Star Wars a chance.

Canada is turning 150 hopefully there will be no serious incidents

I'm just happy that 2016 didn't take any close members of my family, or any of my friends, or any of my favourite singing detectives because I wouldn't be able to handle it

Let Me tell you how my season went-Fall 2016 edition
i_heart_rocka
oh god I am not looking forward to this, and I am really not looking forward to writing the Let Me Tell You how my year went. In 12 hours the Calendar will hit the reset button, and in less than two weeks a new chapter in my life will begin


I will admit thought that I actually enjoyed watching Game 7 of the world series (and getting the Cubs fan song stuck in my head......why don't the Jets have their own fan song?)

Even though the second half of my Carmen Binge watch was the longest ever, I still finished it faster than usual, usually I'm done by the middle of December. Oh god I hope someone will upload some season 4 episodes because there's not much left to upload in seasons 1 2 and 5.

God the celebrity deaths this week really hurt. I mean really really hurt and it makes this scene from Charlotte's web more sad and poignant



so I'll talk about more tomorrow when I do the LMTYHMYW

now I have to go watch Sesame Street Celebrates Around the World

so DuckTales Revival
i_heart_rocka
okay this actually makes me want to see the revival even more especially with this unique way of a cast announcement

yes rose_of_pollux that is one of the Doctor's

Upload alert (?)
i_heart_rocka
so while I was checking and seeing if I could locate a replacement for the Cardcaptors episode A Very Strange Intermission, I noticed that someone had uploaded some episodes that were missing from youtube..


I also accidentally discovered this



I have a bad feeling that Rockapella's voices singing voices were sped up when the roaches were singing...but it has to be them here, because the roaches are doing it acapella.

If this is the right one, then I don't have to sit through the movie, it would be so annoying if I sat through the movie trying to hear them but can't tell and end up finding nothing

oh play dos games online I love you
i_heart_rocka
Here's why

http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fplaydosgamesonline.com%2Fodell-down-under.html&h=_AQFTYwzs

I asked for it, and now it's on the site. I noticed that they had put Troggle Trouble Math online and I wondered if they would put Odell Down Under on the site, and they did. I already had enough practice with it because there was a DEMO version on the Yukon Trail disc, but it was on practice mode. I would usually pretend that I was running a seafood restaurant near the great barrier reef, I always pictured the interior to be like the Living Seas (now the Seas with Nemo and Friends)

now if only they would have Math Blaster: In Search of Spot, it would really fit the mood considering that my local station has been playing the Spice Girls version of Christmas Wrapping, and considering I got my first computer when I got that single

UPDATE: They've added MB:ISoS

also, if only they would have Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego CD-Rom edition on the site (the CD-Rom edition of World had the music and I was able to go to Zaire and catch Lady Agatha Wayland)

and of course Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego 1996, which reminds me, since I finished my binge watch last night I have to take out my NGW's and read them. I thought I was going to end up running out of videos before I ran out of Carmen again

sigh
i_heart_rocka
I don't understand how people think they have an excuse to act like a**h**** just because of who they voted for.

since this week is US thanksgiving I felt that I should share what I said I was thankful for from Canadian Thanksgiving last month

I am thankful that despite all the people that have been dying this year that I'm still here, same goes for several Family members

I am thankful that despite all the celebrity deaths this year that our favourite singing detectives are still here

I am thankful that I have a family that puts up with my crap

I am thankful that someone salvaged tvshowkid's Carmen uploads on youtube

I am thankful that we in Winnipeg have an NHL team

and I'm thankful that I'm Canadian.

I have been diving into my fan fiction again and it's been pretty therapeutic, but right now I'd kill for an episode I haven't seen before especially from season 4

so yeah after I do some internet file clearing I'll post a blurb or something,

again with this 2016?
i_heart_rocka
you don't know when to quit do you?

http://tvline.com/2016/11/11/robert-vaughn-dead-man-from-uncle-died/

okay I am going to be clear about one thing, I am not into Man from Uncle, I will never write fan fiction about Man From U.N.C.L.E (I have enough trouble trying to shoe-in a crossover with Nancy Drew, Inspector Gadget, Mystery Inc pup named scooby doo era, and the Cluefinders, heck I had to change my plans for that Once crossover because I basically struggled to write for Shienna in that situation of waking up in the middle of nowhere, so now I'm giving it to Penelope, or something like that) however since a couple of people I know love the show I felt the need to bring it up

However I will admit that I did see Robert Vaughn in one thing and no it's not Joe's Apartment (I still have no intention of seeing it despite Rockapella providing singing voices to the roaches), Superman 3, see this was during my brief flirtation with the Christopher Reeve era Superman (so much so that I ended up seeing Superman Returns in theaters)

*sends infinity hugs to rose_of_pollux*


first Leonard Cohen, now Robert Vaugn, please I am begging you 2016, stop unless you have plans for someone I really really don't like

So let's see how my birthday went
i_heart_rocka
BORING! but at least it wasn't as boring as my 16th birthday

All I did yesterday was acknowledge some facebook birthday wishes (you know the amazing thing about having strangers for friends on facebook is that some of those people actually can give a crap about you even if they've never met you in person, unfortunately I didn't get any b-day wishes from former members of Rockapella this year. Barry spoiled me last year) and before anyone asks, yes I saw that Zombie Jamboree vid that Sean posted

and went to a Jets game.....HOW COULD THEY HAVE LOST TO AN EVANDER KANE-LESS BUFFALO SABRES!!! and on my birthday no less I'm starting to question if we really won the trade of the decade, I mean sure Stafford and Myers are good players (and the bonus is they love the hell out of Winnipeg, I'm still mad that they sent Pavelec to the Moose, and on the last year of his contract too) the thing is since Kane was injured he couldn't play in yesterday's game, and I was so looking forward to heckling him (why? because he has caused trouble, sure he is a good hockey player but he's a troublemaker.) Oh yeah have I mentioned that I love the Jets draft pick, Laine scored on his first game, and he got a hat trick AGAINST AUSTON MATTHEWS AND THE LEAFS (no Toronto we don't want to trade with you your player scored like four goals in his first game but your team still sucks) Have I said that I am extremely jealous of the Chicago Cubs? it's because they have their own song...and it's catchy too....so not fair, why didn't a fan write something when the team came back?

and I watched Once. And all I have to say is that Hook and Henry better plan a star wars movie night before star wars comes to Storybrooke. I'm not saying it should happen but if the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to Once then I quit. Why couldn't they have dealt with the Hocus Pocus witches in 3A instead of Neverland? because either way they could have gone after Henry

of course my birthday wouldn't be complete without the second of my two Carmen Sandiego binge watches, and it is going to be longer than ever.

What I would like to see next week is that people vote wisely, I don't want to see a serial rapist in the White House. Of course I shouldn't really care because I live in Canada, but I give a crap about what happens to the US


Oh yeah I have not found my phone, I have been forced to use my dad's old smartphone, needless to say I am miserable, it isn't like a Galaxy or an iPhone, not that I would want an iPhone anyway, which means if I wanted to I won't be able to have Elliott as my background

AUGH!
i_heart_rocka
my writer's block is killing me! where is the motivation when I need it most?! I haven't been able to write a thing in weeks

on the other hand, it's nice to wake up to uploads, not to mention having a binge watch to look forward to in 5 days

sigh. I need a job, like badly
