The Language of the whispering wind lends me a handful of beautiful words;

borrowed and borrowed, I am indebted to the air that has sewn together my poetry.

But is it just to rely on the coming storm to make my emotions flow onto paper?

Without the hurricane my thoughts are limited,

and the stanzas from my mind are dull.

The eye of my poems do not lie within the eye of the hurricane.

I find my perfect outlet in the calamitous wall,

where the wind whispers louder than the shouts of my strongest thoughts.

I knew the man went through the dangers of dark land to save the princess.

I knew the hedgehog came to to the Death Egg to stop evil.

It was no lie.

They were real; I believed they were real; I could feel that they were real.

A man did confront Bowser,

A hedgehog did face Robotnik.

Somewhere a plumber became a hero,

Somehow a blue blur became a legend.

They fought desperate battles and defined determination.

I saw the man pound his way through blocks,

I saw the hedgehog cruise through the green hills.

And for it they gained my admiration —

so that now I seek to make my own storyline.

(Channel: MegaSonic) No one watches my good videos on youtube. Maybe I just don’t know how to tag/promote them, but when less well developed videos have over a 100,000 views and better ones have less than 1,000 the question becomes, “why?” I believe my yu yu hakusho video (about 900) is worthy of more views than the castle in the sky video (over 100,000). However, either no one has an interest in the former, or it just doesn’t come up in searches. Most of my videos are rated fairly high, but the traffic is sometimes slow. I really expected more people to watch my Dr. Martin Luther King Jr video, my Mononoke Hime video, and my sonic the hedgehog videos. In fact, since my castle in the sky video was one of the first I put up, I expected almost everything else to do at least as well as that one. I personally, really enjoy my blog introduction video, but that is rarely viewed. I also like my streets of rage videos, especially the most recent one. I don’t really care too mch for the political videos I made. They make a statement, but the quality is not so great. When I make anime music videos, or game music videos I make them the same way I write poetry. That is kinda strange, but it works for me. I’ll be trying something fairly different soon, probably some health tips videos. please watch my videos, and say what you think. The tags list out everthing covered in my videos. http://www.youtube.com/user/MegaSonic

Yeah, yeah. I like to write poetry. I don’t write very often but this is fairly old and since the blog is new it might be stacked with poetry for a while. Anyway, this is based on some Sega Genesis games. See if you can guess the titles, it shouldn’t be too hard. Look at the tags for the answers. Every line but two has a corresponding game.

There is a shout in the night

“all your base are belong to us”

an ‘echo’ reaches the depths of the ocean

The force of thunder rages outside

and the sound of bass drums barrel like a calling for evil as a contraption approaches

A Dark Force is behind the mayhem,

the streets are filled with rage,

it is time to escape.

For some reason, I have recently had the urge to write poems based on anime. I warn you, sometimes I have no idea what I am writing. I also don’t know if what I write is any good, so do tell me the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is entitled Gundam Seeds.

Seeds of human plants,

embryos to embody no such personhood

Fear the dawn of the Matrix,

for science is deemed our god Here,

we are but a fraud,

machines made to be the flesh of purged souls

And though war marks the horizon,

we continue to instill the same goals.
