Random Tag Journal

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 9, 2014, 10:25 AM
Danbuster's Journal


.: Random Facts & Questions :.

I got tagged by both :iconjublenarris: and :iconmrneedlemouse00:
I may as well do them both together to save time… :XD:

The rules are:
:bulletred: You must post these rules.
:bulletred: Each person must post 5 things about themselves in their journal.
:bulletred: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create five new questions for the people you tag to answer
:bulletred: You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
:bulletred: Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
:bulletred: No tag backs
:bulletred: No stuff in the tagging section about “you’re tagged if you’re reading this” You legitimately have to tag 10 people!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Random Facts:
Ah well, might as well get the stuff about me out of the way first.

:bulletblue: I love animals and have even read about some of my favourite European wildlife members in textbooks… some of them, I can even quote their Latin names (e.g. golden eagle = aquila chrysaetos; otter = lutra lutra; etc)
:bulletblue: I have mild traits of Aspergers. Despite being academically brilliant, my communication skills are weak and I can tend to put my foot in it by saying to wrong thing at the wrong times… ^^;
:bulletblue: I should really be doing something useful instead of writing random facts about myself… like working on my children’s book project about Boaz the harvest mouse.
:bulletblue: I daydream a lot… at this moment, I was just drifting off with thinking over possible future story-ideas… but I’m not saying what yet! ;p
:bulletblue: I am NOT very good at talking about myself in these challenges… :hmm:

-----------------------------------------------------------

The Questions:
Here are the questions :iconjublenarris: asked me!

1)
  Do you prefer Cartoons or Anime?
:bulletpurple: Well, since I don’t watch anime at all, that would be cartoons… ;p


2)
What is/are your favourite character(s) of all time?
:bulletpurple: Hmmm, probably too many to name, but here’s a few anyway (aside from my own characters, of course)… *long breath* …Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, Dr Eggman, Rayman, Lara Croft, Asterix, Obelix, Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Taz, Sylvester, Moley, Ratty, Badger, Chief Weasel, Matthias, Mattimeo, Cluny the Scourge, Basil Stag Hare, Martin the Warrior, Gonff the Mousethief… *wheezes and breathes again* …to name but a few.


3)
Favourite book/movie?
:bulletpurple: Again, a tough call… from books, I still like the Chronicles of Narnia, some of the Redwall stories, Lord of the Rings and parts of the Bible.

From movies, I like Pirates of the Caribbean, Wreck-It Ralph, Ratatouille, Puss in Boots… and again Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia.

4) Do you prefer drawing or writing?
:bulletpurple: I like drawing – anyway, they say a picture paints a thousand words. ;)

Of course, some of my bigger projects do require me to write about them in rough first, so writing also applies to a lesser degree…


5)
If you could have any kind of pet, what would it be?
:bulletpurple: Well, if realistically feasible, I wouldn’t mind taking on a well-trained (and tame-natured) ferret. :aww:

Of course, if ANYTHING AT ALL was possible, I may even veer into the mythological area and get myself a friendly gryphon like Thoronraw… :giggle:


6)
If you could go anywhere in the world/universe, where would you go?
:bulletpurple: Hmmm, getting into the realms of fantasy I’m sure, but I’d love to visit Redwall Abbey! :D


7)
What is your Astrology sign?
:bulletpurple: I’m not really sure, since I don’t believe in all this fortune-telling crap… though I think it might be Capricorn the Goat. That’s nothing to do with why I’ve been growing a goatee lately, though! :XD:

-----------------------------------------------------------

Here are the questions :iconmrneedlemouse00: asked me!

1) What is your favourite type of weather season?
:bulletgreen: I should say late-Spring/early-Summer myself, at a time of year when – in an ideal world – the weather’s nice and warm, but not too cold and not sweltering-hot either. Too bad this is NOT an ideal world… :hmm:

2)
How do you view the videogames of today?
:bulletgreen: Well, we’ve certainly come a long way from the old days of “Ping Pong” :XD:
On a personal level, my gaming career started with the Amstrad CPC. My favourite game on that used to be Sorcery Plus, which was an early sort of puzzle-adventure game where you aided “the last sorcerer remaining free” in his quest to free his colleagues and defeat the evil Necromancer… (See, it even had you pitted against an actual antagonist! This was a first for me back then)
This longplay (part 1/3) might give you a better idea: www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBBrKc…
:bulletgreen: Moving on from the Amstrad (when, after a time, the floppy-disk reader went wrong and would no longer run anything) I had a Sega Master System II for some years. This was when I got into Sonic the Hedgehog. Bit of a step up in graphics there, even if it was only 8Kb memory. At the time, it looked great – not to mention, there were so many more games to play and new characters to play with (including Asterix and Mickey Mouse).
:bulletgreen: Of course, once I got a PC, I moved on even further – I got into even better games… like Little Big Adventure, Tomb Raider, Sonic Heroes. Even more options were opened up when I got hold of Steam Apps…
:bulletgreen: In the present, in addition to Steam, there’s also the games I’ve got on the Nintendo Wii and 3DS… lately, I’ve really been getting into Mario and the Legend of Zelda – and the standard of gaming these days has come on streets ahead of the 4-bit retro games of yesteryear, with many of our favourite heroes having progressed from flat 16-colour sprites to fully-rendered 3D characters… in many cases, even their personalities have grown more 3D, not just their physical appearance! So, what would you call that… 4D!?

3)
How would you describe yourself?
:bulletgreen: Well, I already had to answer the requirement of “five random facts” – what more can I say? ^^;
I try to be friendly and polite, helpful and supportive to my friends… and committed to work on whatever project I really want to finish at the time… but also easily distracted by trivial things…

4)
What is your favourite drink?
:bulletgreen: Ah, a short answer – 7Up :D

5)
Which gaming series has the worst fandom in your opinion?
:bulletgreen: Guess that would be Sonic the Hedgehog? Of course, I’m not talking about all the committed fans who attended Summer of Sonic for the past few years and made the event worthwhile – I’m referring to all those whiny little brats who complained when Sonic first found his voice (Ryan Drummond), made an outcry when Jason Griffiths later took over (They changed it, now it sucks!), cried when Roger Craig Smith stepped in a few years ago, not to mention caused riots in the streets because the latest games weren’t “retro” enough… or were too “retro” and therefore STILL sucked… and that’s not to mention burning down the town halls over the design tweaks over the years to the characters’ physical appearances.
Ok, maybe the bit about riots in the streets and burned town halls is a slight exaggeration, but seriously – there’s just no pleasing some people! Apparently, there's a number of people who even actually hate their new Sonic Boom designs, but I think they look rather cool – especially Tails’ new goggles and utility belt!

And the questions you have to answer:

After a busy week, what is your idea of a weekend well spent?
2) If you’re a fan of my own characters, who’s your favourite?
3) What are your hobbies and pastimes?
4) Have you any favourite videogames? Please tell me something about it...
5) What would your ideal job/career be for the future?

Have fun! :D

Hello, this is Jacob.  In case you've forgotten; I used to have a sonic-furry-whatever-crap fan character called Raiden/Raidon (it was blue with a mechanical arm).  I've found some artwork (and an animation) where you've tagged my real first and surname to them.

Please may you removed said tags from them?  Thank you :)
