  1. Morning SSMB,

    Another day another update to my story blog up at 8am PST.

    ...

    It's nice being able to say it, but honestly, I really need to find more to say in these morning greetings. It's sometimes the only time I'm able to interact with SSMB when I'm working on my story blog so it feels like I need to say more. Oh well, for now I guess just good morning everyone.

      I'm not a morning person which is probably why I don't do these greetings. lol

  2. Good morning SSMB.

    I don't think I mentioned it here, but due to my little vacation I took a break from my story blog and have been on hiatus for around three weeks. Well that ends today and my next update will be up at 8am PST over at http://www.sa-b-ers.com. Please check it out and I hope you enjoy (^_^)

  3. It can be so corny and the voice acting is so bad, but there is just so much nostalgia and emotion that this little clip holds for me. CD may be my favorite period and Unleashed my favorite "Modern" game, but SA2 just holds such a special place in my heart. I really do love that game and wish more games had been like it once Iizuka had become the head of Sonic Team.

  4. Well, I'll probably be on again later (not that I expect too many people on overnight) but for now I've got other things I need to tend to so goodnight to everyone heading to bed soon. See you later.

      Night, buddy!

  5. Good evening SSMB.

    Been away for a while cooling my jets as I was definitely letting everything everywhere get under my skin and probably took too much of that out on some people here. Apologies if you were one of the ones that had to deal with me during that little spat of mine.

    Anyway, a two week vacation and time off from writing has left me feeling a bit recharged so I'm kind of back. I say kind of as I still have things I want to focus on that will be eating up my time as I end up returning to work and having next to none to speak of. But I will be kind of in and out more regularly again just trying to keep up with everything goin on around here. Speaking of things going on around here I see one of my Amy threads got some attention again which is kind of weird, so what else did I miss while I was gone?

    Moving on as I wait for an answer to that question, have a piece of art to share again, and it's Sonic themed

    ddble26-b5768195-35c0-481a-8e38-d6625ac7

    And here we are. This was an all-nighter (or all-dayer since nights are my days) that I ended up getting to bed late to finish. I don't really recall what my original intention was with it anymore, but I felt it makes for a great avatar and so now it is. I'll have it up over in my art thread soon enough but I hope everyone enjoys.

    Now I just have to figure out what topics to jump into.

      Nice work!

  6. I really need to get offline right now because apparently attacking people is right if you feel victimized and get in the first word and that just ticks me off to no end right now. Probably my upbringing to be sure but I'm tired of "victims" being able to attack anyone they feel is slighting them and being immune to being made fun of for their overreactions. I've experienced legit racism first hand and I sure as heck can't claim to be a "victim" simply due to the color my skin, which for all extents and purposes alone vilifies me in the eyes of many. What a load of garbage that my skin color makes me a villain and not my actions. This world is so messed up.

      Can you report it to the moderators or report them on whatever site it is on.  I'm sure you can get some help

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @tailsBOOM! The events he's referring to, mostly took place in real life. 

      If I never made that update yesterday, he wouldn't be feeling like this. I feel like it's my fault. I'm so sorry @Sonic Fan J

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      @DanJ86you couldn't have seen it coming.  You don't really seemed to get exposed to that kind of stuff, so I think that it's understandable for you to make this mistake one time.  Knowing you, you won't do it again because you're a very kind and caring person.

    4. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      No need to apologize @DanJ86. I seem to be heading into that time of the month when I go through a depressive episode anyway and was already being set off by a lot of things from home to work and everything in between. I won't dwell on it too much right now though because I don't want you feeling worse about this than you already do. I just wanted to help and made a legitimate mess so you have my apologies for that.

      And @tailsBOOM! I appreciate your concern, but mods can't do anything about in person encounters.

  7. Morning SSMB.

    Today's update for my story blog will be live on schedule (I just need to tend to the links between updates) so all is good there.

    On other matters, sorry @DanJ86 for the long rant on your status update earlier. I didn't mean to go off that badly but I got a little peeved seeing what you were dealing with. Hope everything is getting better for you.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      ...The thing about that is I wouldn't say it was biased, hateful people that "attacked" him.

      It came from other people from this site. I didn't nessessarily include myself at first, but now I'd say those people had a fair reason to call him out.

      I hate to see anybody on here get in trouble, but it can't be helped if what they say is not tolerated here.

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      I personally don't think they said anything wrong. People are too darn obsessed with skin color. it's been 50 years since MLK was assassinated and still no is trying to continue his work and get rid of this mindless segregation. Then trying to police a foreign country which is legitimately ignorant on the matter due to only around 2% of it's population not being native born is getting ridiculous. No less attacking people over it instead of trying to discuss and educate people about why it should be considered wrong.

      I'll admit I'm probably too ignorant about as I was raised in an environment where I should never have to think about, especially since my parent's were extremely worried for the well being of my siblings and I for being mixed as they have seen even greater hatred against mixed people from both sides than they fling at each other. Thing is though, I think everyone should be able to enjoy that type of environment where you just never naturally think about. Unfortunately I know that is also a total fantasy as people are far to set in their ways and both cling to and hate their labels all at the same time. I just feel like leaving someone feeling vilified when they thought there was no harm is taking it way to far. I'm so tired of people fighting over something which should not matter because they put so much importance in it. Kind of a dumb thing to say considering how much I rant and rail about a fictional blue hedgehog and probably makes me sound hypocritical, but at least my passion for the Sonic IP is built around hating people and hating everyone else because of skin color and people long dead who started the whole process. It needs to stop and unfortunately I don't think it ever will and that just leaves me all kinds of ticked off.

    3. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Sorry, but when people create pieces of artwork solely to provoke people into a deliberate negative reaction, like that tweet indicated, then I firmly consider it a waste of talent. No "if"s, "and"s or "but"s about it.

    4. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Sorry Nega, but looking into other tweets suggests the opening tweet is misleading. Apparently other colour veriations exist. 

      Don't know if it's evil to share that. Being Autistic and stupid doesn't help me. 

    5. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Oh, I see. Still, that suggests some of it may still have been drawn just to troll people, which I'd still take issue with.

      It wasn't "evil" of you to share that, but the wording you used to present your opinion in the status didn't exactly help.

      ...Anyway, I'll leave it at that. We can talk more in a PM if need be.

    6. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Please know I didn't blame you, Dan. My comments were on the nature of the situation.

      Someone draws a fun picture, another looks at the picture and misunderstands how colour theory works, and whoops we're all fighting now. I've seen it before, and I did not want it to happen again.

  8. Morning SSMB.

    So asides from my usual self promotion

    Spoiler

    story blog update live at 8am PST

    today I have a weird question.

    Quoting myself from tumblr

    Quote

    Probably going to post this a few places just to get some wider feedback, but anyway, one of the odder things I’ve heard is that Cosmic Eternity is considered by some to be a theme for Amy.

    Now this is kind of an odd thing to me since I’m not particularly good at deciphering the meanings of songs (so bad I got a D on a college paper where i still got an overall a for the class bad) and the song plays to Sonic’s actions juxtaposed against the end credits. So it is kind of weird to see that some people make that correlation. 

    Putting aside my difficulty seeing it for the question itself, to those of you who do, or are good at deciphering the meanings of songs, what does Cosmic Eternity say about Amy? At the most, all i can see is that it would be Sonic encouraging her to do her best but i feel like my simple face value reading is missing something.

     

    Anyway, that's a long enough greeting this morning 😅

    Feeling burnt out after a night of work and hungry since I have to fast for a blood test. Regardless today's update for my story blog goes live at 8am PST on schedule. Please enjoy.

      Well, I see my endocrinologist next week so I'll see how I'm doing then. Hopefully well.

  10. Morning SSMB (kind of silly of me to say now since I'll be getting off soon after being on all night)

    It's Monday morning and that means my story blog will be updating at 8am PST. I hope everyone who checks it out enjoys.

      Noon (It's exactly 12 PM for me)

  11. I just posted a ridiculous wall of text in the Sonic movie and wonder why since I know it is very unlikely to be read no less responded to. What was I thinking I wonder 🤔

  12. Morning SSMB.

    The weekend is nearly here but first one last update for my story blog this week up at 8am PST. Other than that, I really need this weekend to recover. Ended up leaving work last night only an hour into my shift because I was so angry that I just couldn't work safe or without an extreme desire to destroy everything in reach. I knew I was irritable going to work but I can't think of ever being that angry before and there was nothing that should have set me off that much. Regardless I really was too angry to work safely and it honestly frightens me. Good thing I have some vacation time coming up in about two weeks because I obviously need it.

      Morning,  I'm sorry to hear about last night, and hope today goes better

    New day and new update for my story blog. To those who check it out I hope you enjoy.

    On the matter of E3, though I still need to sit down and watch the press conferences, there just isn't anything motivating me to go back and do so. I don't know if I'm tired, bored, disinterested, cynical, or some combination of the above. Regardless I just can't motivate myself to care. Oh well, hopefully everyone else is having decent luck finding stuff they can look forward to and enjoy.

    I'm still churning out updates for my story blog but I'm also trying to get back into studying Japanese again. It's been so long that it amazes me how much I forgot while simultaneously how familiar it all is. Hopefully I got my schedule figured out so I can do both and still have some time to relax and have fun. Too much work makes me a very miserable person 😅

  17. In a bad mood this morning. Either the power cord on my laptop is goin bad or the port for it. I can't tell unfortunately as I have to rotate the head in the socket to get it to connect. trying to find support online but that is proving abysmally difficult. For anyone who might know it's an HP Envy x360 Convertible 15m-bp1xx.

    Meanwhile, today's update for my story blog is live so please check it out.

  23. Morning SSMB.

    Popping in a little earlier than normal as today's update for my story blog is ready to go up at 8am PST.

    On other maters that I currently find to be more important, I find myself worrying about @Failinhearts. I haven't had a chance to comment myself on how he's feeling unappreciated here as I know I'm no good at expressing my appreciation one way or the other, but he's been nothing but kind, understanding, and supportive of my entire time here at SSMB. He's helped me through a couple of my depressive episodes and considering how those go for me his help is pretty much akin to saving my life and bad as I am at expressing gratitude I am definitely appreciative.

    I also know that I am far from the only one here whose life has been made better by @Failinhearts. Though I don't partake I know his roleplay has given numerous users here a place of escape and belonging His movie reviews are always a pleasure to see and even when he dislikes something his ability to see the positive in it is inspiring. That ability to see the silver lining no matter how obscured I also know has been a huge help to many others who like myself suffer from depression as @Failinhearts has been able to pull them back up out of the darkness.

    I don't know about everyone else here at SSMB but it physically hurts me to know that @Failinhearts feels unappreciated here with all that he has contributed to this community an a larger scale down to a more personal level. I may not as I've said before be any good at demonstrating gratitude and appreciation, but @Failinhearts is honestly the first person I feel I can call a friend since I was in grade school and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who feels that way.

    I don't know how to express it @Failinhearts, and now that I'm working overnight full-time just getting on here to say hi has grown more difficult, but I definitely appreciate you and am grateful for all of your advice, kindness, and just willingness to listen to my problems. You're a great guy and I hope somehow, someway, we at SSMB who have had the pleasure of engaging with you and being recipient of your kindness, wit, and positivity can show you how much we care. You're a great guy @Failinhearts and you deserve to know that. Sorry for failing to better articulate it but I'm just no good at it so I hope at least that my emotions somehow carry through my words how much I appreciate everything you do for me and everyone else here at SSMB.

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Morning!

      Thank you so, so much! This really does being a tear to my eye.

      I'm so glad I can help bring joy and inspiration to your life, even in the darkest of times. I promise to keep striving for people like you!

    2. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Morning man!   Thankfully Failin's feeling better!

  24. Morning SSMB.

    Writing for my story blog is proceeding apace so today's update will go live at 8am PST like it should. I also, as long as my health insurance call doesn't take too long, should have time to watch yesterday's episode of One Punch Man and maybe squeeze in a Japanese lesson on Rosetta Stone. It's kind of funny how much my time has become a premium since going full time 😅
