Racing the Mind

Random thoughts I decide to blog about.

  1. Great job with April Fools, Bulbagarden!

    by , 2nd April 2012 at 11:03 PM (Racing the Mind)
    I just want to take the time to thank the staff for a joke well done. It was actually fun to talk about other fandoms like that, and i saw some interesting discussions form in the time I was able to see them during a busy day. I loved the 1998 throwback last year, too.

    How was it possible to switch the current forums over to the fake format? Is it archived anywhere?

  2. A linguistic thing that's bugging me

    by , 31st March 2012 at 12:33 PM (Racing the Mind)
    Does anybody realize that the euphemisms for fainting and death, PASS AWAY and PASS OUT, sound practically the same? Take a look at these two sentences:

    "My father passed out from cancer last week."
    "I pass away every time I see blood."

    Don't they sound the same?! Talking about someone "passing" has major double meanings (especially if it's drinking related). When I hear about someone passing away, I think "they fainted?", ...

  4. Some Pokemon writer/ dubber must really like The Sandman

    by , 19th March 2012 at 09:54 PM (Racing the Mind)
    I just finished reading the first volume of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and noticed a lot of names and concepts mentioned in Pokemon.

    Two characters are named Cynthia and Lucien (albeit spelled differently). Cynthia happens to be blonde and wears black.

    There's also mention of a dreamworld and one of the titular character's special items is a powerful ruby.

    Just food for thought. I don't know if this is a coincidence, but Cynthia and Lucien happened to ...

  5. My first Bulbaversary!

    by , 6th March 2012 at 01:07 PM (Racing the Mind)
    Yup, I joined the forum on the US release day for BW... But I wasn't able to post immediately because the server was down due to a "Team Plasma attack". I actually didn't make my first post for a while.

    I really can't believe it's been a year. I'm still really glad I got back into the Pokemon franchise for good after losing most interest from 2001 until 2010.

    At the turn of the last decade, I was a member of several Pokemon forums that have since mostly gone ...
