So there's a lot on my mind for this week so I figure I'll just use this place to rant and let loose.
First and foremost, how is everyone enjoying the blog so far? I know we only premiered it last night but I put a lot of work into it and was hoping for some astronomical amount of people to come rushing in. Maybe I set the bar too high? I don't really know, but I am grateful for the people who have come to visit so far. Also, please comment! Don't be shy! I think this whole thing comes from the fact that my pride has been crushed a little bit cause of the whole "Tsu never tops anything" thing that people are bringing up again. I don't see myself as a good player but come on... :/
I'm currently wrapping up the finishing touches on this week's "Teach Me Professor Tsu Kiyo Me"
for Bandai's Naruto CCG Forums. The subject this week is a history lesson that I'm sure most of you will enjoy, and if ya don't... well I'll be sure to have something for you next time I see you. Honestly, it takes a lot of time to come up with something compelling that people are going to want to read and even longer to put it to paper, proofread it, and then reread it again just to make sure it still sounds interesting. My father always told me the mark of a great writer is in the rewriting, and I always remember that whenever I sit down to write. Compared to him, I don't really think I'm all that great and I guess this is what it feels like to be in that position of "Big Shoes to Fill." I just hope you will all keep supporting me. Please don't forget, you can always drop me comments, criticism, and suggestions at
I write it that way so that webcrawlers and such can't get my email address and start spamming me. For those of you who don't believe they exist, they do. If a small company in Pennsylvania has software that can strip all the text off a website and deposit it into different locations automatically, you best believe the big guys got far worse.
Also, lets not forget that this Friday "Set 16: Broken Promises" drops into local hobby shops for all you good little boys and girls. Even better than that, most places are doing the usual launch event tournaments where everyone gets a ton of packs and gets all giddy at opening the new set together. Really, those are a lot of fun even though from a competitive standpoint they're awful because luck is a huge factor. Who cares! FUN! Good luck to all of you in your pack pulls and boxes this weekend.
I want to start a foil School Girl Sakura fund. Seriously. I want like... 999 of those things. I wonder if the community could actually make this happen. We could call it "The Nine Drive" where people could send me their Sakuras and I could chronicle my progress on this website and post the pictures. And when its all done, maybe I'll put them all in top loaders and topple them all over like Domnioes...and of course video record it and put it up for your enjoyment.
Speaking of video recording, I know my two fellow blogmates are extremely camera shy and they're not going to come out and say it but... how do you guys feel about us starting a Youtube channel to tie in with this blog? The videos will obviously be posted here as well but you can also check them out there. If you think this, or anything else I covered today, is a good idea, email us or leave a comment below.
