I DIDN'T FORGET

Merry Christmas, all!

There, I posted it while it's still Christmas. I wanted to make a proper post today about what I got and gave for Chrismtas but I was distracted playing Super Smash Bros. all day. Lol.

2013 has been hastily glued back together!

I'm done fixing all of my entries from 2013! (unless there's something I missed...) Just five more years' worth of entries (and then community entries and such...) to go! :D

Also, I got Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Friday! Thanks, pathvain_aelien! :)
You know what's even nerdier and niche-ier than writing an entire entry about a hypothetical Super Smash Bros. moveset for the guide to a video game manual?

Writing TWO entries about a moveset for the guide to a game manual, of course! :P


I wrote that first entry about Mary O. & Yamamura's made-up moveset shortly before the E3 reveal of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and since then I've thought of some updates to make to it based on what was revealed about the actual game... enough that I'm gonna have to bore everyone with another entry about it so I don't have to keep getting distracted thinking about the idea! Since the actual game comes out this week, now seems like the right time. :)


In the unlikely event that you're interested in reading this entry but haven't read the first one yet, I'd recommend reading that one first. Because in this entry I mostly only describe the changes I made, without repeating anything I decided to leave unchanged.

Mary-O.-Fanboying-Induced Ramble #56081239465125265012623, under the cut for the convenience of anyone not as obsessed with SSB or Mary O. as I amCollapse )
It's December now? GOOD!! Because at least there's one New Year's meme I can get out of the way now, six days before I get too distracted playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to remember to do it. :)



Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2018. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

January 2018

I think there's a glitch in my copy of Windows 7. It says today's date is "1/1/2018". I thought the year 2018 didn't exist - didn't the world end in 2017?

February 2018

YES! I'm FINALLY done fixing all of my entries in 2007-2010! (Hopefully...)

March 2018

It's Friday already and not Tuesday or Wednesday... but at least this is still the most regular feature I've had in my journal since the weekly Garfield Randomizer comics in 2009!

(This, of course, is about my weekly Miiverse backup entries... which of course did not remain a regular feature for long...)

April 2018

https://www.mariowiki.com/Mary_O._and_Yamamura:_The_Movie

May 2018

So I found this two-part YouTube video called "500 Characters I Want In Smash Bros. Switch"...

June 2018

About time I posted some more of these. Once again, I meant to post them last week...

July 2018

- On June 14 or 15 or so I saw The Incredibles 2, then saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom a week or two later! I liked both :)

August 2018

It took four days (more than that if you count the time I spent putting it off), but I'm finally done fixing one of my longest and most cringeworthy entries ever! :D

September 2018

Well... it's September 4. So Sunday was the first anniversary of the day I was finally motivated - by a glitch LJ had for about three weeks where a lot of images were suddenly broken in entries - to finally get around to fixing the broken images AND everything else I wanted to fix in my entries on both LJ and DW.

October 2018

WARNING: I am extremely depressed and therefore this entry is going to make no sense whatsoever because I am physically incapable of wording an opinion very well when I am depressed.

November 2018

pathvain_aelien stayed at my apartment for a while; in that time we watched the How To Train Your Dragon TV show! (Specifically, the third of the three shows there were. P_A, what was the third show called again? Dragons: Race to the Edge.) We made it to season 4. :) Have any of you watched it?

December 2018

It's December now? GOOD!! Because at least there's one New Year's meme I can get out of the way now, six days before I get too distracted playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to remember to do it. :)

DID THIS REALLY HAPPEN??

YES!!!!

I'm FINALLY up to 944 entries fixed!!!!!



Yeah, that doesn't sound like a major milestone, but when you consider that entries 929-935 and 937-944 are all really long entries with lots of links to previous entries and comments by me - some of which were very cringeworthy or in upsetting threads - and so I had to skim through ALL of those entries again to change the LJ links to their DW counterparts when possible/necessary and decide what tags needed to be added... getting through all that IS a pretty significant milestone!! :D


How long have I been working on fixing just that set of entries?

*reads through my entries from this year until I figure out when that was*

September 4. In over two months, I only fixed sixteen entries...


At least hopefully from now on I'll start getting to feel like I'm making progress and it's not completely hopeless! :D

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! If it's not Thanksgiving where you live, then have a good day. :)
Sign number whatever that I am obsessed with Enya:

The only reason I didn't change Siri's accent on my iPhone for the longest time even though I knew it is possible to is because Irish was not an option. Now that I noticed that the newest iPhone update finally added Irish Siri (hey, that's a palindrome!), that made my day. :D

EDIT: ...okay, if my friend is right, apparently it wasn't new and was already available but was harder to find for some reason until now. I guess I still have a lot to learn about smartphones. :P

Whatever the case, I'm ecstatic now because Irish Siri exists. :)

Whoa

I was the SECOND person to vote in Super Mario Wiki's new poll!

Sadly, I think this has less to do with me having really good timing and more to do with me habitually typing the URLs of this and a few other wikis into the address bar multiple times a day to procrastinate when I know there's probably not anything new. :P

(In case you're seeing this long after the fact, the poll itself was "Which Super Smash Bros. Ultimate newcomer are you looking forward to the most?" I picked Piranha Plant. Which makes me the FIRST person to pick Piranha Plant in this poll.)

Broken images... AGAIN...

Yesterday I saw that images and videos were randomly broken on some of my LJ entries, again. :(

I put in a support request about it and was instructed to link to some examples of entries with broken images/videos, so I decided to compile a bunch of images/videos (some that were in my earlier entries, some not) into one entry so I'd only have to link to one.

cut for lengthCollapse )

...All the images and videos in my journal are showing up today, apparently. Oh well, at least I have an entry like this in case there's a similar glitch in the future. :)

Three more random updates

pathvain_aelien stayed at my apartment for a while; in that time we watched the How To Train Your Dragon TV show! (Specifically, the third of the three shows there were. P_A, what was the third show called again? Dragons: Race to the Edge.) We made it to season 4. :) Have any of you watched it?

----

It's no secret that I've fallen really far behind on my plan to backup some of my Miiverse posts on LJ/DW once a week. So I have an idea of how to get on a regular schedule that I'll have more motivation to stick to: start posting them once every two weeks instead of one, and act as if this had been my schedule all along starting from my first Miiverse backup entry - meaning the second Miiverse backup entry is now retroactively considered to be posted a week early (being one week after the first rather than two), the third one is retroactively considered to be two weeks early (being two weeks after the first instead of four), and so on.

As I've posted 23 Miiverse backup entries so far, that means the next one would get posted 23×2=46 weeks after the first, which would be the week of... December 12? So this means I'm now "still" caught up! :)

Do me a favor. The next time I consider doing some sort of regular feature on LJ or DW that requires me to upload new images or post entries with images in them once a week, please remind me about this and try to convince me to bring it down to once every two weeks...

----

Finally, now that the last Super Smash Bros. Direct is out, I'll give you another taste of just how weird it is in the mind of Matt1993:

- When I first saw a screenshot of Kirby's Peach copy ability in Super Smash Bros. Melee (when I was 9), I somehow didn't realize that was Peach's crown - my mind jumped to the conclusion that King Bob-omb from Super Mario 64 was playable and either that was his pink alternate costume or Kirby's King Bob-omb copy ability.
- I made up an entire moveset for Mary O. & Yamamura from Super Mario Maker and posted it earlier this year. (And I've brought up the idea even earlier than that - see the music tag on that April Fools entry.)
- And somehow, despite all of that, I still at no point expected a Piranha Plant to be a playable character.

Also, why is it that so many Super Smash Bros. fans hate each other over who's playable or different opinions about who they want to playable?

This got rant-ier than the rest of the entry. Long story short: I like Piranha Plant and other unexpected SSB characters more than most of the Internet seems toCollapse )


*Why couldn't this song have existed when MY world came to an end? It would have been so appropriate for that!

Quick update

Today (well, yesterday because it's 1:09 AM) was my first anniversary as a direct employee at work! :)

I was going to post some other things I'd been meaning to mention, but now this is the one that's on my mind the most so I'm gonna briefly post about just this one so I can kinda get it off my chest:

Just now I discovered that TWO YouTube channels I'd at some point seen a couple of videos of, liked those videos, and wanted to watch more of eventually have ended recently... one (Etika) is actually GONE now, and the other (cobanermani456) is still there but no new videos will be made, apparently because of a controversy that spiraled out of something that sounds a lot like mistakes I have made in the past...

THIS IS FREAKING ME OUT NOW. Just like earlier this year when I found out that THREE webcomics I wanted to read were gone now.

ANYTHING I LIKE CAN BE TAKEN DOWN AT ANY MOMENT. THERE IS NO LONGER ANY REASON NOT TO PANIC.
I don’t or even know how to make get do that I’m you it either so way you don’t want me to hang around out for a while because and I’m sorry gonna was a the day that you were gonna we last was a thing movie but I’m you sure you don’t know want

(This is a LJ/DW meme I thought of a while back and am finally doing - I got on DreamWidth on my phone and pressed the autocomplete keys randomly for a while to see what would come up. If you check LJ or DW on a device with autocomplete keys, do the same in the comments and see what comes up! 😃)
*gives in anyway*

Dear Displate,

No, I do NOT want a picture of Bowsette for my wall. Not with red hair, not with blonde hair, not with black hair, not with really really really really dark blue hair, not with green eggs and hair. I only clicked on it so I could use the fact that you have such a picture available ALREADY to prove a point about how this meme has gone WAY too far already and will probably take over the entire Internet once New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is released. SO STOP SHOWING ME THAT AD ON EVERY PAGE I GO TO.

Sincerely,
matt1993

LIVEJOURNAL IS DOWN

LIVEJOURNAL IS DOWN NOW. NO. NO. NO. NOW ABOUT A THIRD OF MY ENTRIES ON DW ARE GOING TO BE MESSED UP FOREVER!!!!


...okay, so it MIGHT just be a temporary outage, but the fact that I can't get on LJ from either IE or Chrome right now is making me panic anyway.

EDIT: It's back. I think.
About time I posted another one of these. If I'd stuck to my intended schedule of posting my Miiverse backup entries once a week, this would've been posted between June 24 and 30, 2018.

I'll get caught up someday...

At least I can prove I'm still capable of posting entries that don't mention the Quidd drama!... wait a minute... DANG IT! :P

For my birthday I got (along with other games and things) money to get NSLU from the eShop, so I'm gonna do that now… If I'm not back in an hour, send a not-being-distracted-by-Miiverse after me XD

4 2

(I wonder what I was doing if it took me three whole days after my birthday to post this. Probably playing Kid Icarus: Uprising - I got that for the same birthday, but didn't get to post about it on Miiverse for a while because there were no 3DS game communities back then except for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Also, I think this is the only time I posted about a game that was out by then, but that I didn't have yet. I may be wrong though.)

Got NSLU and liking it so far! I wish there were an official in-story explanation of why Mario's not there, though, if only so there wouldn't be fan speculation... But I'm liking the game :)

1 2

(That's how you know that this post predates Game Theory's "Mario is Mental" video - I'm annoyed by some other Mario-related fan speculation enough to post a mini-rant about it.

Also, like the next few, this ended up in the NSMBU community instead of NSLU because for whatever reason, New Super Luigi U didn't give me nearly as many opportunities to post from in-game, which was the only way to post in the NSLU community at all.)

Why is it that this is the first time I've gotten asked to post to Miiverse in NSLU?

(Again, this is my first AND last post in the NSLU community. I think we continued playing New Super Luigi U for a while after this, but not long enough for us to get around to 100% completing it unlike with NSMBU. I should finish that someday. This was also my last Miiverse post of 2013 - it would be about 5 or 6 months [139 days, to be exact] until I finally started posting again, setting another new record for my longest hiatus.)

2018 LJ/DW Comment Stats!

It's the 11th anniversary of my LJ! And since I'm lucky enough that a) I still have my old Vista laptop with me, b) it still works so I could copy the LJ Comment Stats Wizard onto my current laptop, and c) the wizard still works on this laptop, that means...

It's once again time for LJ/DW comment stats! :)

Like last year, I manually edited the comment stats to include DW comments that are not also on LJ, even moving those of you who've commented a lot on my DW further up in the rankings or adding you to it if you weren't in the rankings otherwise. :)

My comment count is a fraction (and, by extension, so is the grand total) because I couldn't decide if this LJ comment and this DW comment should count as one or two comments (since all the other times when I manually posted the same comment on both the LJ and DW versions of an entry around the same time, I counted each LJ/DW comment pair as only one comment, but these two aren't exactly the same...), so I made this pair count as 1½ comments.

DREAMWIDTH IS DOWN NOW. NOW I CAN'T FIX ANYTHING ON THERE.

GRR...


This is one of the reasons why I still like LJ better.

I'll have to remember to manually cross-post this to DW when it's back up. IF THAT EVER HAPPENS.

EDIT: Well, that was faster than I expected! But I still like LJ better.

Progress?

It took four days (more than that if you count the time I spent putting it off), but I'm finally done fixing one of my longest and most cringeworthy entries ever! :D

Now I just have 449 to go... I hope there aren't many more that are as long as that one. Off the top of my head I can already think of 18 more entries that are going to take a while to fix. :(

I'm glad most of my entries aren't that long... I couldn't bear the thought of it taking another 4×449=1,796 days to fix all my entries. By July 5, 2023 (1,796 days from now) everyone probably will have left both LJ and DW and moved to a third website, and all my work would be for nothing. And every webcomic I ever read would be gone by then. :(
SOMEONE on here sure has been falling behind on his promise to archive a few more of his Miiverse posts on LJ and DW every-- oh wait, that someone is me, isn't it... :P

If I'd been on schedule, this entry would've been posted between June 17 and 23, 2018. It's kind of hard to motivate myself to post these sometimes because I have to write the DW version of the entry, have that automatically be cross-posted to LJ, and then edit the LJ version to use the LJ copies of all the images (community icons, handwritten posts, tiny icons like the one for Yeahs, etc.)...

Hopefully it'll become easier now, though... Recently I made a little program where I can write the LJ and DW versions of an entry simultaneously, where I type into one text box and the program copies it into separate text boxes for LJ and DW; it copies text into both text boxes until it gets to a "▌" character (meaning everything until the next "▐" or "█" should be on LJ only), a "▐" character (meaning everything until the next "▌" or "█" should be on DW only), or a "█" character (meaning everything until the next "▌" or "▐" should be on both). For instance, the last word in this sentence is different on here from what it is on DreamWidth. The use of left/right half block characters makes sense to me because I typically put LJ-related tabs on the left side of my screen and DW-related tabs on the right so I can tell them apart. :)

(Though this one still took a while. Maybe I need to modify my program to add shortcuts specifically to make these Miiverse backup posts easier by making it so that if I type ☺Y☻ or ☺SSB4☻ or ☺:O☻, for instance, it'll be replaced with the Yeahs icon or the SSB4 community icon or my Mii's shocked expression, complete with it being the LJ version on LJ and the DW version on DW?)

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U Community
Matt 06/17/2013 10:54 PM



5 10

(In addition to my first Miiverse post in over a month, this was also my first one in the Super Smash Bros. series community. The backup Nintendo sent me incorrectly says these are in the Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U community, but that was the community created after the game was released, which I never posted in because by then I'd already become sick of Miiverse; the SSB series community was created after the Villager, Mega Man, and Wii Fit Trainer reveals at E3 and existed until the game was released.

Oh boy, I remember the SSB community...Collapse )

Two more things to point out: This had the second-most comments of any of my posts on Miiverse - surpassed only by that surprisingly popular "unlikely vine, likely vine" one - and was my first Miiverse post to end up having more comments than Yeahs.)

Yoshi's Fruit Cart

Apparently there's a trend of drawing stuff in Fruit Cart. At first I thought "pointless but might as well try it" but when I started I thought "It's harder than it looks…so THAT'S why they do it!"

(That's supposed to be my Mii. I don't know why I merely said that there was a trend of people drawing "stuff" in Yoshi's Fruit Cart if the only pictures I remember anyone drawing in that game were of their Miis. I don't think my drawing turned out well... I found it hard enough to draw my Mii as it was, and then to try and do so with a single connected line...)

Note that I did play the last three on the list, but not as often because they are multiplayer-only - and in multiplayer modes there's less opportunities to take a break to make Miiverse posts.)

Finally beat the Mini Mountaineer challenge! But if getting a gold medal for it is required to unlock anything, it still might as well be "Prove the Riemann hypothesis without touching the ground" :(

0 0

(And this was my last post in the New Super Mario Bros. U community, excluding posts about New Super Luigi U - and my only post in that community to be about Challenge Mode instead of the main adventure. Makes sense since I'd already gotten all 5 stars in the main adventure.

This was probably also my most obscure joke throughout my entire history on Miiverse, too... if you don't know what the Riemann hypothesis is, all you need to know to understand my joke is that it's a certain mathy thing that is probably true, but so difficult to definitively prove that so far no one has been able to do so. I guess I was hoping that people would at least know that, but I was wrong. This is about the only reason I know what it is, in fact.

Back to NSMBU... I still don't think I've 100% completed all of the challenges in Challenge Mode - I'm pretty sure there's still some I haven't beaten, with gold medals or otherwise.

Which New Super Mario Bros. U levels did I post about the most?

cut for length againCollapse )


This excludes New Super Luigi U levels and cases where I can't deduce exactly which level I was playing.)

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
