      Evenin' fellow nerds and nerdettes! So after a long delay I finally decided on something worth posting and sharing. By the way I just watched RWBY Episode 3 and whoa..... RWBY is totally something else. And something else that is totally awesome!


      So coming back to this community, I still find that there are still awesome and amazing people on here as there was a decade ago. There is still the same warmth and welcome that originally was part of this forum and I'm happy to come back to it. It's so funny coming back here because a few of the people I know on this site that are no longer here I chat with time to time on my Facebook and there's still that friendship and bond.


      So currently to follow up how my pursuit of the US Navy is going, it's still going, a couple of hiccups but still running after it! I will post when I am officially sworn in as well.

      I did find one picture from one of my LARPs I feel explains the last few years of my life, my Fiddler Villager! My constant struggle in life to get to the next level as well as communing every day with The Almighty. If I had to make a couple of brief explanations what is the goal of the Torah, its that God is One and love your neighbor as you would yourself. And that's one thing I've learned to do and to master my best every day for as long as I am here.

      Until then, Have a good day and shalom.

      Hey guys and gals, so this is a blog I've been wrestling to write and to find the words for it I find it very difficult for me to write. But honestly if anyone follows my Zaren 2.0 cosplay page on Facebook then you know what I've been up to. But for the sake of time and words I wanted to repost this here.

      Hey guys and gals. It's been a bit of a while since I wrote or posted anything but just wanted to touch base with you who just know me through cosplay and such.

      So recently I've been faced with a few things in my life and I'm at the point of my life where I guess when you are climbing towards your late 20s you evaluate your life and the decisions you've made. And truthfully while I am proud of everything I've done my personal goals, dreams and future job have yet to be obtained. Ten years ago when I was just graduating high school I wanted to join the US Army but my parents stopped me from doing it, and also the US was in Iraq and trying to maintain stability in that region. Political opinion aside, I decided not to join, I didn't want to be killed in action but not joining was a decision that has haunted me since then. Until recently.....

      So the picture I posted is the emblem for the United States Navy, and I have decided to enlist again! I have more of a drive now to further myself then I did ten years ago and I know what I want more so than before but where I currently live I'm extremely limited in terms of employment and my career pursuits, South Florida is my home but it's time for me to move on.

      I will continue to cosplay when I can and I'm not sure if I want to be in the Navy Reserves or go full deployment, to be honest I would like to see Japan so -cross my fingers-

      To the cosplay friends I've made over the years, if we've known each others for years or months, or a few days or even just met online, thank you for helping me be a better me and Zaren 2.0 is just an extension of myself. I know it won't be easy to join but to me at the end of it all I know it damn well will be and when I'm older I can enjoy a lot more for my commitment.

      Until then!

      -Zaren 2.0, Famicom_Mike

    • What's a Famicom?

      3 years ago

      Famicom_Mike

      So this is probably my first real journal entry or blog in a while and someone asked me in a message what is a Famicom. Well essentially what we in the United States call the NES or Nintendo Entertainment System Japan released the original Nintendo Famicom a few years prior to the release of the NES in America. Basically the original Famicom to some people that see it at first and myself think it looks like a Mattel toy but all things considered with what Nintendo did to remodel it and package it with ROB the Robot and even call the carts back then video game paks and even taking into consideration the Video Game Crash of 1983 in America where anything video game was shunned by retailers at the time, the video game market would have been drastically different if Nintendo didn't go down the route they did.

      So to be honest I don't have a Famicom system yet, I do have an original NES complete in box as part of my collection but truthfully I don't use it, I did do a pin swap on it but even the audio output on an original just doesn't do it for me. I will get one one day soon and if anything I have a Retron unit that plays my Super Nintendo and NES games, oh and Super Famicom games too! I do have a 3rd party clone console that plays all of my 5 Famicom games at the current moment but one day I'll get something more substancial lol.

      With that said, to me the Famicom was Nintendo's first real console and did a lot of great things we don't know about! Hopefully with their new leadership we can see the Nintendo of today be awesome once again!

    • Here to stay for good this time around!

      3 years ago

      Well hello Rooster Teeth Community! It's been quite a long time since my last blog! To be honest looking back at my last blog from like almost a year ago I was scared to come back on here as silly as it sounds. A web forum and site of all things you ask? Well you know how change can be intimidating, that's what happened.

      Let's go back 10 years ago, I joined this site with an old user name and it was BornAssassin, I was really an angry person who held grudges and carried them for stupid reasons and looking back I was stupid. (I was young and naive, I didn't know any better, lol) But then in the last few years with stuff happening all around me something else clicked, I picked up my Super Nintendo and my Xbox 360 at the time and started playing again! True I go to conventions and cosplay but I also like to collect games as well, and if I wasn't a gamer I wouldn't be on this site! Red vs Blue, RWBY and all of Rooster Teeth's shows always made me happy and so does gaming, it doesn't matter for me if it is on something as old as an Atari 2600, something obscure to some or a collector piece like the Sega Game Gear or even modern stuff (as of right now like the Wii U and Xbox One) or even selecting from a giant library like the Playstation 2, I know who I am and will always be!

      The name Famicom_Mike to me represents two things, obviously Mike and Michael being my name and since Nintendo will always be my favorite gaming platform and their first console ever was the Nintendo Famicom or NES or Nintendo Entertainment System Rooster Teeth and Nintendo will always be a part of me that no one can strip me of, their not just companies that make content, they make me smile.

      Glad and happy to be back, there will be more I want to say as time goes on, I just wanted to say hello again Rooster Teeth, I missed you.

      -Famicom_Mike, formerly BornAssassin

    • Coming back to an old home!

      Hello guys and gals who are still around! As I write this its probably been at least 2 years since I made any sort of journal post and all I have to say is just.... wow. In December I will have been a member on this site for 10 years, a decade really and honestly I look at some of the photos I have posted, some of the blogs I have written myself and some have made me laugh and some have made me ashamed. The internet has grown in light years in the last 10 years, AIM Instant Messenger was still relevant and a thing, Facebook was still being developed by Mark Zuckerberg in Harvard and even Myspace was still growing.

      But anyways I just wanted to say I'm still here, I'm still alive and doing well, I'm going back to college for my Bachelor's in Business Entrepreneurship and a lot of really awesome changes in my life are coming.


      Another heads up I am also on Facebook and Instagram, feel free to follow me and chat with me on there as well!

      lol, well it's not a question of right or wrong, good or bad. It's just a different angle. I still have all my best friends on my watch list, so it's not like you people are forgotten or put away. I'm still keeping an eye on you. :)

    • C16H14N2O

      8 years ago

      I'm keeping my friends list blank... doing something different. I have you on watch so I'll see if you post anything. I'm just going to go with my list being blank for a change. I'd rather have a blank list (with friends) than to have a large list and I have to sift through to find real friends. :)

      That would be fun, like a con road trip ^^
      I'm thinking of a camping road trip. It would be less expensive than a con road trip. Haha. But still, I'd have to wait a while before I can afford it. :3

    • pgw_chaos FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      9 years ago

      Ah that is too bad. I have not given much thought about next years cons. But Megacon is on the list. It was pretty fun when I was there last.

    • pgw_chaos FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      9 years ago

      Yeah I must of missed you, I didn't see anyone walking around with the Israeli Flag. I am going to AFO as my next con. (I am guessing that what you meant by Megacon).

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeah, there's a lot of this country I have to see still. :3

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeah, I think it would definitely be awesome to go to a Cali Con again. It would pretty much have to be SDCC. I'm trying to think of when would be a good time to go... Probably not for the next two summers. :( Curse my moving out and trying to be independent! >:(

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Dang, you're right. Sorry, my head is all tired and stuff. Full time job, man. :(

      I'll have to see about getting to CA again, funds are tight :\ I think if I go for a con it will probably be Comic Con since my friends are all in San Diego and go to CC anyway... :3

    • Sarge806

      Hmmmm. I have a terrible memory. Is that the one on the east coast? :<

      Well in defending themselves they also ended up killing civilians too; however this is because their enemies are cowards and hind behind them. Bit it is something to make the world hate them. Truth is Israel's enemies don't care about the Palestinians, they are only tools to make the Israels look bad.

      Very cool video, Israel does do good work around the world. But the world just looked at the bad stuff they do.

      How's it going man? Just checking up on ya.

      Nah, they're pretty well organised, though I'm disappointed that some are missing. :(

    • Sarge806

      Site's in Japanese but it isn't hard to navigate through. They changed it since I last saw it.

      Blaaah.... you want ME to find the link in my photo album? D: But I'm lazy!

    • Sarge806

      Thanks! :)

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeah, I heard that too. Something about how they are running out of room in SD...

      It's not a DA artist, I just found their site on the internet. There are photos in my album, and the web address is in the description for the Raichu one.

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Cool cool :) Though it probably won't be for a long long time. I have to save up stuff too... and convince Tony to come to CA with me... lol.

      Eh, I think that's a coincidence. It looks more like me. hehehe.

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      And yes I do have that cowlick. :P

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Based on the many many gajinka I found, I would be this Porygon-Z girl. Her hair looks similar to mine, except red.

      Porygon-Z.png

      Heehee.

      I'm not sure which Pokemon I would be... I haven't watched enough of the show to get to know their personalities and stuff. :3

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      I think I like this guy better (maybe because it'e better drawn, hehe). It's from the same people/person who made the Bellossom one I showed you... there are a LOT of them :)

      Typhlosion.png

      He's a BAMF.

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Totally made it up. Of course you can use it ;)

      Hahahahaha!! OH GOD. That's hot dirty.

      I had to look that up to figure out what it meant. How did we get on that subject again? Poke-cosplay?
      If I were to a gajinka I would be Bellossom, based on this costume:

      Bellossom.png

      :)

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Lol, I see. Sort of epic, but really offensive. Offensepic.

      That would be cute. Though I do love seeing new character designs :>

      LOL man Fay.

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeah... Haha

      Haha, wow you were there?

      Yeah, I was a bit confused. She is cute though.
      I wish they used her character design for HG/SS; they used the same character for the guy... Though Lyra's design is really cute too.

      Haha, when I cosplay Pokemon I do Team Aqua Grunt. Chick version. Cynthia cosplay in the works.... May do Lyra's since I'm making the bag this summer... ;)
      I thought of crossplaying as a male gym leader but Cynthia is so much secksier. >:D

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeahhh, I dunno. He didn't RFR me so he's not blocked, but if he keeps messaging me he's gonna get a "Look, pal......." kind of response...

      Hahahahaha!! Holy shit. They're "heiling" Seaking? o__O Oh, 4chan.

      Suicune? Wait. The female character's name..... it wasn't Suicune was it? I really don't remember.
      And yeah, boys are stinky. Loljk I'm actually playing as a boy right now through SS to mix things up. :3

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      ;)
      Some random guy just messaged me saying "Hey what's going on, how have you been, what's new?" like we're old friends or something. IMO, obvious attempt to disguise a RFR. Respond or ignore? :P

      Yeah, that's what I heard/read. It seems awesome, though Acen sounds like a watered down version. There was a rave at Acen too, along with a lot of the stuff mentioned... but no Japanese band concert. THAT, would be awesome.
      What Fuck Yeah Seaking thing?! o__O

      As in the main character of Crystal Version? I wish they'd make a Crystal remake. That came up in The Thread a while back and the consensus is it probably won't happen :( They didn't make a Yellow remake with LG/FR and Gen 5 is just around the corner. They're also incorporating the special Suicune story from Crystal into HG/SS. /shrug

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Had to block another one today. I'm up to 22. Hahaha

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Yeah, they're alright. Nowhere near as amazing as San Diego Comic Con though. But like I said, it's the best I've got at the moment :(

      Going to Otakon would be bad ass. I looked it up on Wikipedia and it looks really awesome. Want but can not afford.

      Lyra? That's a cute name. I think her character design is my favourite of all the Pokemon main characters. I love her floppy hat. :3

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Haha, that would be awesome. Did I mention I'm making the girl's bag from HG/SS soon? Like, buying the fabric this May while in LA. >:D Maybe I shouuuulldddd.... MAKE HER OUTFIT OMG.
      Then I would have a weekend of Pokemon cosplays too!!! Cynthia, HG/SS girl, Team Aqua. OMG.

      I only went to one con here in the midwest. It was, understandably, much smaller and not as awesome as San Diego. But, it was good for some fun and sightseeing. Oh, and the costumes weren't nearly as epic or as good caliber as in SD. But now I'm just being nit-picky. :P

      I really wish I went to Anime Milwaukee. Little Kuriboh was there. Man, if I met LK I would give him SUCH a huge hug. :D

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Haha, we don't know at the moment. I'm not a gym leader so I don't have to worry about them! Haha, oh, and my BF isn't one either. We're both Elite 4. Lawls.
      We haven't actually discussed what we'd make them out of yet. Something like Fimo clay might be the easiest. Metal would get expensive and requires tools.

      .............

      BRB. BUYING FIMO, MAKING ALL BADGES for myself lawls

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      Haha, well we're not sure how we're going to set up the battles but it might be all in one go, like a tourney against all us trainers. And those who are going as gym leaders are going make badges to hand out! :)

      Definitely! I meant a Pokemon team to pwn noobs. :)

      Hahaha, that would be OMG awesome. Make sure you prepare a competitive team! <3

    • Sarge806

      Oh god. At least two years from this summer. I so poor.

    • Sarge806

      You should go to Comic Con when we do the group cosplay ;)

    • Sarge806

      9 years ago

      I went to Comic Con in San Diego, and Anime Central (Acen) in Chicago. I was going to go to Anime Milwaukee but .....well.... Pokemon HG/SS was coming out that weekend and I had it preordered. Also, that was the beginning of my spring break. :'3

      I have a few costumes and they need a bit of tweaking before I show up at a con again...
