Horror movie idea??

I can’t really watch horror movies or shows or whatever media (I absolutely do not want to give myself nightmares) thus I am super unfamiliar with most of the horror stories out there. But my scumbag brain likes to imagine things. I don’t know if something like this exists (and this is not a ‘please recommend me similar horror movies’ post, thank you!!!), but I just had some inspiration for a horror movie plot:

Why hiatus from Twitter?

I posted a lengthy thread on Twitter about taking an indefinite hiatus from it and here I’ll just combine the whole thing together instead of reading separate tweets.

How to input fractions in Microsoft Word

Lately, I’m doing freelance work helping to produce questions for a tuition center. I learned new things in Microsoft Words as I went along until yesterday, I was stumped trying to convert 3/10 into a proper fraction in-line instead of in its separate little equation block.

Updated (6 August 2019):
So… I actually found how to make the little equation block to display inline. It’s in the drop-down menu option, “Change to Inline”.

This is so much easier than the other method below, but I’m going to leave that in for when equation blocks can’t work.

As always, a bit of Googling saved me from further headache. I found the solution initially from a youtube video but this blog post ‘Mathematical Formulas in Microsoft Word‘ is a bit more detailed

The gist of it is to use equation fields, but hitting Ctrl + F9 and typing { eq \f (a,b) } , substituting a and b for whatever numbers or text of the fraction. Then right-click on the whole bracketed text (which should have a gray background now) and select ‘Toggle Field Codes‘ and it should convert itself.

The video shows it in action and the blog post have way more things than just fractions. This post of mine essentially is my note to self, because I have a feeling I may need to check back here again several times

PS. My Microsoft Words is 2016 version, but it seems to work for other versions too, older or newer.

Vocaloid : Blessed Messiah and the Tower of AI

Original version (without English sub):
【ボカロ10人】祝福のメシアとアイの塔【オリジナルMV】/【VOCALOID 10】『Blessed Messiah and the Tower of AI』【Original MV】

I fell in love with this song from Hitoshizuku × Yama△, with Suzunosuke‘s lovely artwork. They are the same team who did the Synchronicity series, which I love so much, so I knew I’m getting into something good. I just didn’t know how much of a feel trip this one would be. ;_; Consider yourself warned.

I also want to gush about how beautiful this video is. The 3D modeled animation and 2D art worked together so well. Watching this team’s works is always such an experience.

2018 Remake of “The End of Hatsune Miku”

Also known as “Disappearance of Hatsune Miku” (of which I have posted about its English lyrics long ago), a famous Vocaloid song of extremely high singing speed has reached its 10th anniversary!!

The remake version is a little different although the melody is mostly the same, and I’m still not sure how well I like it. Reading the lyrics still make me tear up a bit. ;_;

The song’s creator [email protected] posted this remake version on his official Youtube channel where he has posted several other remakes and a lot of his newer creations, do check them out~!

Getting rid of pesky Photoshop registration pop-up

How to Stop the Registration From Showing on Startup in Photoshop CS2

I had to reinstall my Photoshop after upgrading to Windows 10 (yes, I succumbed to it finally) and again, had to deal with the registration form that kept popping up. Luckily I remembered this article and managed to vanquish it a second time, muahaha! Bye bye, irritating pop-up!

Cute kitty marching band video to cheer anyone up

I first spotted a tumblr-capture of this video from The Adult Side of Tumblr.‘s video and found myself smiling from the first kitty to the last.

I suspect I’ll come back to this post to watch the video again when I’m feeling down in the future. 🙂

Thoughts on Bleach and Fairy Tail manga latest happenings

After Naruto manga ended, I haven’t been checking the major manga titles for a while. So when I got caught in a reading mood these few days, I read some summaries to find out where Bleach and Fairy Tail has gotten to.

I am totally not surprised to find that Bleach is still nowhere near the end of its current (final?) arc, and that the Soul King has finally finally appeared. Pleased to learn that Fairy Tail’s Tartaros Arc had ended but a little mixed that there’s another arc to wait through. But that bombshell dropped at the end of Tartaros Arc… holy mother of Gaia, it changes so many things. And Gray’s new look is kinda cool, haha.

All in all, looking forward to more Fairy Tail growth, not so much for yet another new batch of enemies and ambiguous alignments. And Bleach… just end please, really.

I’m not sure if it’s because I changed the permalink structure or because of the way I swap the live site with the test site, but I seemed to have lost the data on how much Facebook shares or likes that my posts have. @[email protected]

Oh well… they were nice to look at but what’s gone is gone.

Dancing Queens by Martini

Saw this video when I went to watch a movie at one of the Cathay Theatre recently, and something about it really touched me deeply. I’m not even sure what exactly about it keeps making me tear up, but I don’t think I’ll be able to forget this video for a long time.

The departure of three great men

35_08-10-2013_5392

First, the man who became the face of Star Trek’s Spock for decades, Leonard Nimoy. Then, Sir Terry Pratchett who created a whole fantasy Discworld for fans of all ages. And last, the founding father of a tiny nation that bloomed impossibly in just 50 years, Lee Kuan Yew, who passed away today.

These past 30 days have not been good to us. We lost three brilliant men who each made history in their different areas of influence. And two of such influence featured greatly in my own life.

I came into contact with Sir Terry Pratchett’s books at a low point of my life. His sharp wit and unique brand of humor pulled me out of the darkness I let myself fell into then, and continued to cheer me up immensely since. So much so that I indulged in a bit of retail therapy and bought as much of the Discworld series that I can find, and sank my mind into the whimsical fantasy world that Sir Terry Pratchett constructed. In a sense, he saved my sanity for a while there. May his writing live on forever in his place, and bring cheer to generations more.

Mr Lee Kuan Yew is the first Prime Minister of Singapore, and together with his ministers then, were responsible for transforming what was just a small island colony into a 1st world country. And that miracle of a nation, Singapore, is my home. It is Mr Lee’s vision and more than 50 years of his life that made us into the safe and secure country that is beautiful and prosperous today. And today, we lost this giant of a man.

It is a small consolation that all three of them have lived full long lives, and they have more than earned their rest. May they be in a better place, reunited with the loved ones who have gone on ahead of them. Rest in peace.

Luo TianYi (洛天依) sings Fujoshi’s Theory of Love

Thanks to viewing the Dragon Nest China server’s news about DWC Championship 2013, I learned about one of the Chinese vocaloid Luo TianYi (洛天依). At first I wasn’t very interested, but lately I went searching for her songs on a whim.

And while this is not the first song I found that I really liked, it definitely is one of the most memorable. Afterall, I AM a fujoshi. 😛

PS. The person who uploaded and translated the video/song named the song Rotten Girl’s Theory of Love, but I went with the term Fujoshi’s Theory of Love.

PPS. Warning, if you are not a fan of Boys’ Love or Yaoi, this song will likely make no sense at all to you. And google those terms at your own’s risk/
