That's no Moon, that's West Edmonton Mall!

Hello my awesome readers!
Yesterday, I visited the West Edmonton Mall for the first time!
I went out with my school, and my group looked through the whole store, though we weren't allowed to go to the pool. The one thing I forgot when I left home early that morning, was (of course) my wallet. I've been looking for a sombrero, for obvious reasons :P and I was hoping West Ed would be the one place that would have them. Of course, there were no sombreros, but I don't mind to much, since I forgot my cash :P I did hang out with some epic friends, and we had a blast!
So, have any of my awesome readers been to WEM? What did you think of it? What was your favorite thing about it? Post in the comments! :D I love hearing from my followers!
Keep being awesome! I'm going to go work on a Crysis 2 video now!

Dude's Top Video Games

Hello my awesome readers!
Here is my top 10 video games list! :D
10 will be my favorite, so I hope you enjoy :D
1. Monster Hunter Tri on Wii is pretty good.
2. Red Steal 2 on Wii was another good Wii game.
3. The Force Unleashed. Great game, but it should be longer.
4. Infamous. I love this game! I really enjoy how you move through the world using Parkour.
5. COD Modern Warfare 2. It's got pretty fun missions for the main story, and a cool special ops co op mode.
6. COD Black Ops. fun moments in the missions, like driving a motorcycle, flying a helicopter, and a few other things. Online is pretty good, though I liked the perks in Modern Warfare 2 better.
7. COD World at War. I love old guns, and there are some good missions. Also, online is pretty good.
8. Crysis 2. Amazing! Much better in the strategy area, compared to COD. Cool suit powers, and some fairly good guns. Not as many weapons as in COD, but I think the extra suit powers and strategy make up for any lost fire power. It's not all about run and gun anyway right?
9. Minecraft is really fun :P
10. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood! An amazing game! I love how you move through Rome using Parkour! the Parkour techniques are more fun than in Infamous. Some really cool weapons make combat very diverse, because stringing combos together can result in some amazing take downs. You could dispatch an enemy with a swing of your sword, then shoot an enemy before he can get close, with your hidden gun. Destroy all of Leonardo's War Machines (spoiler alert!) and you get the Parachute! You can jump off any building, and glide safely to the ground, and if a guard is nearby, you can drop from the sky and take him out quickly.
There is also online game play, very fun, but I'll show, rather than tell, because it's kind of easier that way :P
Hope you enjoyed my top 10 list! :D I kind of added some mini reviews of each game, so I hope you found that helpful for when you are looking into getting any new games.
Keep being awesome! :D

Christmas Card :D

Hello my awesome readers! The Dude got a Christmas card! :D
I'm also supposed to pass it on, so here it is :D hope you all enjoy.
Thank you for this card Alyianna :D

Twas the month before Christmas 
  
  
                                When all through our land,       
Not a Christian was praying       
Nor taking a stand.       
Why the PC Police had taken away       
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.      
 The children were told by their schools not to sing       
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.       
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say       
December 25th is just a ' Holiday'.       
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit      
 Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!       
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod       
Something was changing, something quite odd!       
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa       
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.       
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down       
At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.      
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears       
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.       Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty      
 Are words that were used to intimidate me.       
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen       
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!       
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter       
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.       
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith      
 Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace       
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded       
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.      
 So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'       Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.       
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say       
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,       
not Happy Holiday!       

Please, all Christians join together and       
wish everyone you meet       
MERRY CHRISTMAS       
Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!       
If you agree please post this on your blog, if not, simply ignore.

What Up With That Dude?

Hello my awesome readers!
I was planning on telling you all what's been going on lately in a vlog, but I haven't had the time. So, I'll just tell you in this post.
I just moved recently! :O I'm still in Awesomeland, but I'm slightly farther North. It was really crazy while moving, and I was unable to post most of the time (For obvious reasons. For example, the computer was in a box.) and was super tired almost every day. I spent my mornings packing boxes in a huge trailer, then drove out to the new house and unloaded them again. They say practice makes perfect, so I guess I'm now really good at carrying heavy objects. Some friends helped us pack, which was awesome! Because without them, it would have taken even longer. So, a special thanks to M15 and John Doe!
After the move was over, I was uber exhausted, and for those of you who don't know, Uber is a measurement that defines something really big :P
We spent several weeks with the walls lined with boxes, because we were testing firearms and wanted to sound proof the place... not really. We can see the walls again and I have to say that this house is really epic! I was able to put our old tv in my new room, then I hooked my PS3 up! :D now I can make gaming videos more easily because of the set up. Look forward to some gaming vids everyone :D and tell me if there are any particular games you'd like me to play.
Here are a list of the games I have for PS3
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Crysis 2
Force Unleashed (already did one but if you want more, post in the comments)
COD Modern Warfare 2
COD World at War
COD Black Ops
Infamous (also have done a couple on this one, but comment if you want to see more)
I think that's all of them lol.
And more news!
I went to an epic Youth Group a couple weeks ago! We went to the drop in center and served food to the homeless people. It is a very great thing to do, and I would encourage you to try it. We need to let the world know that we care, and helping those in need is a great first step. I also am going to another one this Sunday. This time, there are going to be games held at the place, and a discussion after (I think).
So after all that, I hope I've made it up to my awesome readers for being away so long.
I've missed posting and reading your comments, so I'm for sure going to get back in the groove!
Keep being awesome! :D
I'm That Dude, and I'll possibly make a vlog soon. I'm thinking of doing them on weekends when I have the most time.

Day 3: Trailers From My Fav. Movies

I'm posting this one a day early in case I don't have time to do it tomorrow.


Toy Story 3
You will NOT believe what I've been through tonight.

Anne of Green Gables
HOW DARE YOU!!!

The Lion King
Where is Scar?!? *sobs*

Mulan

Mulan II

Tangled
I had a dream...once. (If the trailer makes the movie look dumb and silly to you, don't get fooled! If not, awesome! :D)

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Prince Caspian
I just LOVE how trailers mix up scenes and make them look like they go together. Tricks me every time (before I watch the movie, that is). :P

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
My favourite Narnia trailer. :)

The Fellowship of the Ring
If you want him, come and claim him!!!

The Two Towers
My Precioussss...they stole it from us, the thieves! And we...wants it...

The Return of the King
A day may come when the courage of men fails. When we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship...but it is not this day. This day, we FIGHT!

If you have noticed that these movies are mixed up (according to my ranking of favourites), it's for all of you, who haven't watched the first movies in the series...chronological order. Stay tuned for more!

Remembering

Hello my awesome readers!
The Dude is back!
I'm sorry I haven't been posting in a while, but when my old nemesis shows up, I must prepare for battle. By, "old nemesis" I mean Math, and by, "Prepare for battle" I mean hide :P
So, since it is Remembrance Day, I thought I'd do a special post.
I hope everyone takes some time today to remember the brave men and women, who fought, and are fighting to keep us safe.
Sometimes, it is easy to forget what a big sacrifice they make, and sometimes we do not pay them the respect due.
In the words of John Rambo, "To win a war, you have to become a war.". So don't treat today like a holiday. Like a day away from school. Treat it as a day to remember, and to mourn those who gave their lives in defense of freedom.
Keep being awesome.
Lest we forget...

Day 2: My Fav. Characters From My Fav. Movies

Favourite Characters:
Toy Story 3
My favourite character would probably have to be Woody. :)

Favourite secondary character: Barbie :)

Anne of Green Gables
Definitely Anne! :)

Favourite secondary character: Gilbert

The Lion King
You may be shocked to hear this...but my favourite character is Scar. He's my favourite Disney villain. :P

Favourite secondary character: Simba (though he's actually the main character, but what I mean by "secondary" is secondary in my opinion :P)

Mulan II
I think I would have to say Mushu here. :)

Favourite secondary characters: Mulan, those three army guys, and the three princesses LOL

Mulan
Definitely Mushu!

Favourite secondary character: Mulan

Tangled
FLYNN!!!! (They just can't get my nose right!)

Favourite secondary character: Rapunzel

Prince Caspian
Lucy

Favourite secondary characters: Edmund and Susan (and maybe Caspian)

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Edmund!!! (Why isn't he my fav. in PC? He doesn't do as much...)

Secondary favourite: Lucy

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Lucy...I think. I'm not sure though, whether I like Edmund or Lucy better. It's just probably too long since I watched the movies...time to watch them again! :P

Secondary favourites: Eustace and Reepicheep

The Two Towers
Frodo

Secondary favourites: Sam and (don't be shocked) Gollum

The Fellowship of the Ring
Frodo

Secondary favourites: Arwen and Sam

The Return of the King
Frodo

Secondary favourites: Sam and Pippin

Favourite Villains:
Toy Story 3
I don't have a favourite villian. I don't like Lotso at all...

Anne of Green Gables
There isn't really any villains in Anne of Green Gables...unless you count Josie Pye. LOL She isn't too bad...

The Lion King
Scar!!! (obviously) Who is my favourite villain in any movie (not just Disney). (I also like the hyenas, especially the one that laughs all the time (the one that has its tongue sticking out in the pic :P)

Mulan II
I don't have any favourite villains here...

Mulan
Shan Yu isn't too bad... :P

Tangled
I HATE that old woman, who pretends to be Rapunzel's mother!

Prince Caspian
Miraz isn't too bad. :P

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
The White Witch is pretty good (she's actually evil but you know what I mean :D), but she's way better in the BBC movie (who is shown in this picture).

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
As I said above about the White Witch...

The Two Towers
SARUMAN! :D He's pretty good for a villian...

The Fellowship of the Ring
Saruman here, too. (I DO NOT like Sauron, obviously.)

The Return of the King
Maybe Saruman...but the Mouth of Sauron has SUCH a winning smile that is beckoning to me to choose him. :D (Alright Mouth of Sauron you can win...now DIE with that knowledge! *Aragorn chops off the Mouth's head*)

Stay tuned for more! :)

Day 1: My Top 10 Favourite Movies

Well, the Dudess is back (finally)! I just got this idea last night...I am going to do a list of my Top 10 Favourite Movies! If any of you noticed the "Day 1" in the title, you might be wondering...how long do these "days" go on? And what are they about? These "day" posts will be more about these favourite movies - my favourite characters in these movies, favourite scenes, etc. How long will these "days" go on? I honestly don't know! :P

So now I will start, going backwards up to 1!

10. The Lion King
Why? I think it's probably a mixture of Disney, adventure, and Scar. :P

9. Mulan II
Why? I don't like it as much as Mulan. It's a little bit of what my parents call "fluff," if you know what I mean.

8. Mulan
Why? It's filled with adventure, it has elements like LOTR (don't believe me? Watch Eomer's Bootcamp on YouTube), and it's Disney. :P

7. Tangled
Why? Actually, I don't have really any explanation...unless Flynn and LOTS of hair and adventure can be an explanation. :P

6. Prince Caspian
Why? I like it the least of the Narnia movies, but it's still pretty good!

5. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Why? I like the Voyage of the Dawn Treader better for its epic scenes, but TLWW has a really epic battle scene! I was surprised to find something so epic in Narnia, actually. :)

4. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
My reason was stated in the last one..and because Narnia can never be as good as LOTR. :)

3. The Two Towers
Why do I like it the least? I'm not sure. Maybe because it's in the middle of two movies...

2. The Fellowship of the Ring
Why? I could never explain why. :P

1. The Return of the King
And the top one is...ROTK! Why do I like it the best? No other movie can give me such awesome creepy thrills (like in Shelob's lair) and it has TWO beautiful/sad scenes. *sniff* Does anybody have some tissues?

Movies That Could Have Made The List
 
Anne of Green Gables and Toy Story 3

Why didn't they go on? It's just seemed to happen that way. I'm not sure if I even put the bottom ones in the correct order or if they should have even be there. But you get the idea. Tomorrow (hopefully) I will do a post on my favourite characters (and villians) from each movie. :D

School's Tough, But I'm Tougher! Blog Review: Scribbles of a Catholic Teen

Hello my awesome readers!
I'm very sorry I haven't posted in so long, but I have a perfectly good reason.
School started a few weeks back, and ever since I've been very busy. But now, as I'm eating a pizza pocket, I finally have a little time to write something!
Here is my blog review of my awesome authors blog, Scribbles of a Catholic Teen!
Now, if your looking for a blog that has interesting facts about music, animals, and Elijah Wood (like, a lot :P I'm just kidding), then this is a blog for you! Alyianna, also writes about events in her days, such as chilling  with her friends, days out with the family, and even different recipes. Her latest posts on animals have been very interesting, because I enjoy learning facts about nature and the creatures that live in it. One can also learn a little about Catholics, and also some excellent tips on strengthening one's relationship with God. I would encourage anyone to stop by her blog and check it out. Also, for any Taylor Swift fans, Alyianna has posted many songs by the artist, so if you Taylor Swift music, go ahead and check out her blog.
An excellent blog! I give it a good 9.95 out of 10!
Please check out her blog and I hope you enjoyed my review :D
Keep being awesome everyone!
I'm That Dude, and I'll be back later with a possible vlog!

Crysis 2 is Comparison to COD

Hello my awesome readers!
Well I just got Crysis 2 fairly recently and it is amazing!
Ok, I usually play COD but after playing Crysis 2 I've been given an awesome surprise.
Now, COD is fun, but I wish there was more strategy in it. Crysis 2 is a game that is built on strategy!
You are given a tactical visor (I call them binoculars :P) which gives you info on the area. For example, it highlights ammo boxes, weapons that are lying on the ground and tactical points such as an observation point, or a flanking position. It also helps you spot the enemy and you can highlight them on your map. I hadn't used this ability very much in the beginning but, I've started now and I've rarely been detected because of it.
The only time your stealthy in COD is when you have to be. The rest of it is just run and gun.
But, in Crysis (I'll just call it that. You know it's 2) you have many abilities in your nano suit.
Stealth is my favorite. You have the ability to activate your cloak, so as to sneak by your enemy or silently take him out (not to dinner I mean make him sleep with the fishes). Now you may wonder, well that sounds cheap :P the fact is it isn't. The game makes your cloak so that the enemy can spot you if you get to close. Also, it drains power very fast while moving, so you won't be able to just run past everyone in the game undetected. No, you have to plan which abilities to use for the situation. Also, when you fire your weapon while cloaked, it makes you visible and drains your power almost completely, forcing you to find cover and recharge.
I rarely use this ability, but now I'm being forced to since I'm infiltrating the alien hive.
Armor, is the ability to strengthen your suit against damage. It helps you take less fall damage when dropping from heights is the only option. I personally have gotten my share of running and gunning from COD so I do lean towards stealth. Armor does have it's uses. For example, I had to fight a heavily armored alien and he had a pretty big gun.
There are also several other abilities that fall under Power. Such abilities include, sprinting, and sliding, though I think there will be more since I haven't finished the game.
COD has some fun missions that include, flying a helicopter in Black Ops, infiltrating an arctic base in a blizzard in Modern Warfare 2, and driving a tank in World at War.
None of the COD games I've played have had any real strategy, unfortunately, and I've finally gotten what I was looking for in Crysis.
Just a while ago I was playing and I scoped out an area full of aliens. I tagged each one and made my way down from my vantage point and began flanking them. First, I took one out silently. He had been standing a fair way from his comrades so he was easy pickings. One of them suspected something was wrong and came to investigate. I waited until he had gone behind one of the barricade that had been set up to help defend the area and took him out with no trouble.
Now, you don't see that kind of game play in COD at all. Once the game decides the enemy has seen you, the enemy has seen you for the rest of the mission.
In Crysis, you cloak and make your escape and then either come back and finish the enemy once they think you are gone, or, you can simply continue on your mission.
The way you look at situations in Crysis is what really lets me enjoy the game. I like games that have action, but I like it when there is a balance of gunfights and strategy.
The online is good as well. It is a challenge since everyone has the cloak ability, but it is still fun. Of course, the online is more COD styled but with your normal nano suit abilities, it really changes the way combat goes.
The game modes are mostly the same idea as COD game modes so I don't really need to go into that.
The perks are close to the same as some COD but there are several that apply to the nano suit only. For example, faster transition in and out of cloak.
Over all, I have to say I'm liking Crysis better than COD, but I have to say COD has slightly better online. There are more weapons and weapon attachments in COD there is more variety in COD online. Also, it's easier to find matches online in COD since Crysis is moderately new and fewer people seem to be online.
I still really like COD but, I think I like Crysis more.
Thanks for reading my Crysis 2 review and comparison to COD!
Hope you enjoyed reading and got the info you were looking for if you were interested in the game.
Keep doing what you do best, which is being awesome!

What the Dude's Been Doin'

Hello my awesome readers!
Sorry I haven't posted much lately. I was doing battle with one of my few enemies. The cold lol.
So, now that I'm back, I think I'll tell you all what I think of the things that go on in this big o'l world.
Well, as the title says, I'll tell you a bit about what I've been up to. I finally got back into my work out routine! I feel great after lifting weights and doing my other exorcises, and I just gotta give a shout out to everyone. Physical health contributes so much to mental health! I mean, it's sad that so many people are shying away from physical activity. Now, I play video games. I'm not gonna hide that fact. But, video games can suck you in and you never get outside. The same goes for the internet and other electronics. What we need is balance. Actually, we need less balance, because we really should get out more than staying in. We need to enjoy what God gave us. And he gave us the world but, also our bodies. There is so much we are capable of. If you have seen people practicing Parkour, you have seen a fraction of what our bodies are meant to do. Most traceurs never reach their full potential, and these are the guys jumping from insane heights and leaping across rooftops. I am a traceur and I am giving you this advice. Find something, some kind of activity that you enjoy, and commit to it. Add it to the list of things to-do. Because the feeling of accomplishment is so rewarding and it gives you a way to express your self. Writing blog posts is fun for me, and I love that you enjoy my posts. In the future I may even post a Parkour practice session. You've seen my high drop. I've practiced landing and rolling for a long time to be able to make that video for you, my awesome readers and viewers. Also, coming soon, I'll possibly review some of the blogs that I'm following. 
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it.
Keep being awesome!

There Will Be A Day... (Part 2)


So what will that day be like...when the world ends?


Matthew 24 
And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty. 


[28] "Wheresoever"... The coming of Christ shall be sudden, and manifest to all the world, like lightning: and wheresoever he shall come, thither shall all mankind be gathered to him, as eagles are gathered about a dead body.


[29] "The stars"... Or flaming meteors resembling stars.


[30] "The sign"... The cross of Christ.


And he shall send his angels with a trumpet, and a great voice: and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the farthest parts of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them...So you also, when you shall see all these things, know ye that it is nigh, even at the doors.


And what will it be like in Heaven? All wrongs will come to right, and we will all be perfectly happy because we will be with our Creator. Our bodies, made perfect, will join our souls. So that means if you are missing an arm or leg, you will have it in Heaven.

How wonderful will it be? I can only imagine.

There Will Be A Day... (Part 1)

There will be a day when the world ends. We will be judged by our Creator, and our sins will be there for everyone to see. (I'll do a post sometime more on this subject, but not right now).

When will the world end? The honest answer is that God only knows! What about when scientists or other people predict that the world will end? Should we panick and quickly make our last confession? The answer is...no.


Matthew 24

And when he was sitting on mount Olivet, the disciples came to him privately, saying: Tell us when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the consummation of the world? And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you: For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ: and they will seduce many.

And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places: Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows...

Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand. 


We don't know when the world is going to end - but it is cetainly not going to be when scientists say it is going to be...because then we would know when the world would end, contradicting my first statement. :P

Thank you Alyianna for listing me in your award!

Alyianna is an epic friend! She is my first author and has done an awesome job! Always awesome to talk to, Alyianna is a very kind and fun person and, I'm glad I can call her a friend.
Cyby! Cyby if your reading this you is epic! Cyby is an awesome friend! Always there for you, Cyby is reliable and a funny dude lol thanks for your help in the tennis vlog man!
M15 the unseen! He has been in the tennis video for about one second but he's an epic dude! He may not have agreed to be in the video... but he is very good at laser tag (I'm better but he's very close :P)

I think I'm supposed to say what a friend is in this as well so here goes.
A friend is an awesome person that hangs out with you after surgery instead of ditching you for ice cream, doesn't try and bribe you to hang out, is loyal and won't leave you stranded on an island, and does all the other stuff friends do :P
Thanks to my friends!
Keep being awesome!

Changed my Name

Finally remembered how lol 
I changed it for pretty much the same reason as the Dudess.
Anyway, coming soon, Infamous video review!
Star Wars Vlog (not sure what on yet)
And, I answer the questions I got from my awesome readers! (probably in a vlog)

Changing My Blogging Name

Dudess here. 

Just thought I'd let you all know that I'm going to be changing my blogging name in a day or two. I will no longer be alaw (for privacy reasons), but Alyianna.

Why? Well, let me tell you a little story. Last year in Grade 10, I started (for the second or third time) a LOTR RPG. I didn't have much hope because it never went very far and got abandoned for the more popular FAIR RPG (I'm not going to go into detail about that one). But last year, I was surprised! FAIR was abandoned and my LOTR RPG was the only RPG to be played the whole year! I played Frodo, a few others, and my beautiful made-up character - Alyianna.

Her story? Her mother, an elf, and her father, a man, supposedly died when she was a baby. Elrond found her somewhere and adopted her. Alyianna grew up with Arwen and Aragorn. When Arwen left to live with her grandmother, and Alyianna had more time with just her and Aragorn, she developed a crush on him. Then Arwen came back to Rivendell and she and Aragorn fell in love. Alyianna was heartbroken - until she met Legolas. And then, on the way with Legolas and some other troops to help Osgiliath, she starts finding signs that lead her to believe that perhaps her parents are still alive...

Perhaps someday I will write a fan-fiction for this story. But even if I do not, Alyianna will still live on in my heart.

The Return of the Dude

Hello my awesome readers!!!
I'm back from camp and I'm looking forward start posting again :D
Thanks to the Dudess for keeping the blog alive and posting some very interesting posts :D
I had an awesome week! Two good friends that I made last year were there again so, we chilled and had an awesome time! My cabin built an awesome shelter and we stayed in it two nights in a row. We all went river bobbing, boating, and we also went on the high ropes and made fires for cooking a meal. I love Foothills camp! It is a great christian summer camp and, next year I'll probably go there as a counsellor!
On the way home I had two coffees and a coke (because we stayed up really late the last day.) and that was a bad idea lol I just crashed and I'm tired again and it barely woke me up at all. It managed to raise my heart rate but that's about all.
Looking forward to working on more posts! I need rest though so I'll probably get started tomorrow!
So, keep being awesome!
And thanks again to the Dudess!

The Media & Boys

The media can change how you think. For example, sex is everywhere in the media...making lots of teens interested in sex, and thinking it's a good thing.

Another example - a few months ago, I got introduced to Taylor Swift. That was around when I started getting interested in boys (coincidence?). :P I'm that kind of person, who doesn't get influenced too much by the media (because I don't watch TV much, etc. and how my parents trained me). I tossed some of Taylor Swift's song ideas and took on some about the boy I'd like to meet (to be my boyfriend, future husband, etc.).


I want to see sparks fly when he smiles. :)


If I run outside crying after an argument, I want him to come after me.

He'll say forever and for always, and mean it.

He'll always "say no" to other girls.

Etc. etc. etc..... 

In other words, he'll be there for me. Always. 

All You Need Is Love?



I'm sure most of you have either heard this song or seen this phrase on a T-Shirt. Our society seems to be obsessed with love - except, it's not really love. It's lust.

Some people say that the Catholic Church is obsessed with how She says sex before marriage is a bad thing. In fact, it's the other way around. Our society is obsessed with sex.

Just look around - it's everywhere. I can't go to Walmart without seeing magazines like "____ got dumped by ____", "_____ cheated on ______", and "______ had sex with _____." I can't watch a video on YouTube without seeing someone brag in the comments: "I lost my virginity to this song!"

Everyone loves each other - then why are so many girls heart broken? Why didn't their "loving" parents tell them that sex before marriage is wrong? Why did their boyfriends tell them that they loved them, used them for sex, and then dumped them? Why did all their friends say they were trying to help them by convincing them that they should have an abortion, which broken their hearts even more?

Love? I don't think so.

About Me (the Dudess)

Well, hello, again. I'm back to show you all I'm still alive here!

I decided I would copy Gimli and do an "About Me" post.

My two favourite subjects are The Lord of the Rings and the computer. LOTR is the best book/movie ever...so I love it. (Okay, that sounded kind of lame, but whatever, it never hurts to be lame sometimes [not a broken leg, lame, the other meaning :P]) Computer? I love to blog, check my email, make movies, and work on my book. Soon, I'm going to start learning html so I can put my two fav things together and make a LOTR fan website! :D

I Shall Return!

Hello my readers! Actually, I guess I should be saying good bye. Tomorrow, I'm heading to a summer camp! :D gonna have a blast so, I'll see you all in a week!
Dudess! Keep the blog alive while I'm gone! :)
Hope you all enjoyed my Parkour drop and I may even post some other techniques I know.
Thanks for reading my blogs and watching my vlogs everyone!
Keep doing what you do best which, is being awesome!

C4cow's Drop of Doom

Hello my readers! Here is the Parkour video I promised!
This is a very high drop and I'm just glad I practiced the landing and rolls so much. One of the scariest moments in my life. In this video I risk my limbs for your entertainment :D (only because I was 99.9 % sure I could do it :P)
Don't try this at home (unless you do Parkour as well and if your ready)
Hope you enjoy it and, please tell me any other suggestions in the comments.
Thanks for watching.

About Me (The Dude)

Hey readers! I thought I'd tell you a little  bit about myself (hopefully you don't fall asleep).
I love Parkour! It is one of my passions in life. Practicing it is a great experience because it pushes you to your limits and, if you keep with it, your limits will increase! I feel great after a day of urban exploring and it works all the muscles in the body. I feel recharged after pushing myself to the limit of my abilities and I'm still learning new things! If your thinking of trying a type of exorcise then, I suggest Parkour.
Archery is an awesome pass time as well. I've spent hours practicing and perfecting my technique. So many hours that, almost all my arrows are broken :( I have to buy some new ones very soon.
Survival in the elements! Always a challenge but so worth doing. One time, my friends and I went up into the mountains (not on the mountains but next to them) and built shelters to stay the night. I won a prize for best shelter because the next year, mine was still standing and the most preserved :D I came in third in fire starting lol Still, I love the outdoors and, I wish I could go with my friends this Friday because, they are going to stay out in the mountains (again, next to them) for two days. One match. One potato. So sad I can't join them :(
Hmmm, what else is there? Well, I also enjoy long walks on the beach, lying under the stars and talking about the great mysteries in life, and of course romantic candle lit dinners. But, since this isn't my Eharmony profile (not that I have one) I'll just rephrase that so it says, " I love chilling with friends, on the beach, in the malls, and talking about yesterday's stupid weather."
So, my awesome readers! What do you think of this post? Comment and please tell me what you want in my blog and I'll make it happen! Star Wars Vlog coming soon! And a Parkour jump of awesome! (from my garage roof which is a fairly good height)
Thanks for reading!
