Spotify Users! Pacific Moon Records Playlist

Hey folks!

This goes out to those that are big on using Spotify. A few months ago, I created a playlist and shared it on my Facebook and on my Twitter feed. It contains music that is included in some of the albums sold at Epcot’s Japan gift shop, and they are under the label Pacific Moon Records.

So I recently updated it, and I thought it wouldn’t hurt to share it with you guys. :)

Pacific Moon Records Playlist on Spotify

Hope you all enjoy! :D It was actually fun making this playlist. I’ll have to think on doing a couple more. We shall see what happens.

Other than that, I’ll have my orientation with Busch Gardens this weekend. Hoping for the best!

Have a great weekend, everyone! :D

SonicHomeboy’s Vlog: First Video of 2015 + Update

It’s been a long time coming! So here it is! A video blog from yours truly! lol

Gosh, I should seriously do more of these. That way I’m not stuttering and pausing like crazy. I apologize for the length, but there’s a lot to summarize during my time at Disney World. =P

Also, I found out that I can only stick to one seasonal job since the two I described were under the same company. So I’ll be sticking with Busch Gardens since it’s much closer to where I’m currently living now.

Anyway, thanks for looking! Hope you guys are doing well. :) What’s been going on lately with you all?

Until next time, Eddie the Wolf signing off. ^^

Christmas Wishlist 2014

Hey all!

It’s that time of year again! =D Hope you guys have been working at being good this year! lol

Still, this is the time of year when we can all get together and have a wonderful time. Yes, there seems to be a lot of negativity that is outweighing the positive lately, but I think we should all try to take a step back and be thankful with what we have. Even though this year has had many bumps along the way with the passing of my grandfathers, I feel that this year was a bit better than last year particularly being a part of the Disney College Program. :)

As this year comes to a close, I kind of have an idea on what I want to try to accomplish for the new year. That will all be shared in another blog.

With Christmas coming around the corner, I have come up with yet another wishlist. lol Now I don’t expect anyone to get me anything/everything. It’s a wishlist for a reason. This is just to show what my general tastes but mostly all in good fun. :) So here it is!

-Qatsi trilogy, Criterion collection (Blu-ray)

-PS4 bundle with GTA V and The Last of Us

-gift cards to Nintendo eShop, PSN, Steam, and/or Amazon

-Ratchet & Clank Collection (PS3)

-Ni No Kuni (PS3)

-The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition (Blu-ray)

-Gone Girl soundtrack (CD)

-iPod around 120GB

-Gargoyles Season 2, Vol. 2

-Borderlands 2 soundtrack

-Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS)

-Coldplay’s Ghosts (CD)

-Blacksad graphic novel (ask me about it just in case)

-Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (3DS)

And there you have it. :) If you guys do wish to give me something, gift cards are always fine. I may not have something to give in return, but we shall see what happens. *nods*

With that, I can’t think of anything else to share at this time.

Have a safe and Merry Christmas, guys!

Mystery Skulls’ “Ghost”? Yesterday’s News.

Yes, you heard right! As much as that animated video of the song is cool, there is another one that I think is far better than it. And here it is!

Pretty cool, huh? :) Seriously, this video deserves as much views as the “Ghosts” has. Seeing this made me think back on some of my favorite animated movies that blended 2D animation with 3D visuals, and that’s something I can get behind on.

After seeing that, I did some research on the video’s director, Juanjo Guardino, and it turns out that he’s a former Disney animator and graphic novel artist of Blacksad. I may just as well check out that graphic novel since it does have anthropomorphic characters. =P

While I may have your attention, it’s time that I did an update. There hasn’t been a lot happening since I last wrote my last update. I wasn’t able to get to draw a Castlevania-related picture, and that’s okay. I’ll have an opportunity to get to the idea. :) Speaking of Castlevania, I did manage to finish Symphony of the Night a week before Halloween. And just like the drawing idea, I’ll have opportunities to get to the other Castlevania games I had hopes in playing last month.

Symphony of the Night was loads of fun playing for the very first time. I’ve always been a fan of the Metroidvania-style of games, and this was a blast! Yes, I did have my frustrations with the game during the second half as the enemies got tougher, and it became very unforgiving to some extent. Even Alucard moved too slow for my liking. Yes, I know I could have used his sidestep to go fast, but that would have been silly and repetitive to have done so. Despite all that, this was a very solid game. :) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night earns an 8 out of 10 in my book.

The 3DS has been occupying my gaming time as of late. If it isn’t checking Streetpasses for mini-games, it’s mixing it up with Pokemon X, Tomodachi Life, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Now I know I shouldn’t be playing all these games at once, but I’m having a lot of fun with my new handheld. XD Besides those games, I also have Shinobi and Dead or Alive Dimensions.

To all you 3DS users, any recommendations you all might have? Be sure to explain why you think I should look into them as well. :)

Now that I think on it, I did actually do an inked piece that I’m rather proud of. I consider it a mixture of a belated Inkober and Halloween picture. If you read its description, you’ll see why it’s also considered a Halloween picture. =P

Animal Gunwarriors No. 58 – Eddie

And now we move onto movies that I’ve seen of late. There are two I can recall seeing since the last time I updated. They happen to be John Wick and Big Hero 6.

For John Wick, it’s one of those shoot-em up movies that isn’t so much about story as it is about how stylish action scenes can be pulled off. Now I enjoyed it for the most part even though it’s just an over-the-top body count movie. Keanu Reeves fits well with the movie’s titular character. Let’s just say that if Hotline Miami were to have been turned into a movie, John Wick would be the result. lol Fans of action movies like Die Hard might find some enjoyment in this. :) And just as the reviews have said, it’s Keanu Reeve’s best action movie since The Matrix. I give it a 3 out of 4 stars.

Finally, we have Big Hero 6, the Disney animated feature of this year. I loved this movie to death. Everything from the diverse cast of characters and rich colors to the movie’s heartwarming moments and Henry Jackman’s score. I want the soundtrack to this movie so much! This movie has become another big superhero surprise next to Guardians of the Galaxy. So when my top movies list of 2014 comes, expect to see this movie bumping The Lego Movie out of its No. 2 spot. XD And now I must do some Rocket Raccoon and Baymax fan art at some point. This movie gets a 4 out of 4 stars.

Speaking of art, Christmas time is approaching, and I don’t know if I’ll have enough time to do the sketches that I would usually do for friends. Last year, I wasn’t able to deliver to all that I wanted to do sketch wise… So I will have to look into a different alternative if I can. I can’t make any promises, but we shall see what will happen. Even if I am unable to do sketches for Christmas, I plan to do fan art of other people’s characters since it’ll give me an excuse to draw their character without having to worry about receiving commissions. lol But as I said, we shall see.

And that does it for now! I apologize if this journal doesn’t flow so well. I mostly want to share this awesome music video. =P

Take care now! A Christmas wishlist will happen once Thanksgiving is out of the way. So be on the lookout for it. :)

This is Eddie the Wolf, and that’s the bottom line!

Leveled Up to 27!

Hey guys!

Well, another birthday has come and gone, and I’m now one year older. Have I gotten any wiser than before? Perhaps some based on some good and bad life experiences. I will say that this has been one of the best birthdays I’ve had. :) For those that don’t know, my birthday was on October 17.

Seeing that I work at Disney World, it would seem obvious that I would want to spend my birthday at one of the parks. Well, I didn’t want to. So, I decided to go to the Tampa Bay area and spent my birthday weekend with a few friends I had met at the con. There wasn’t anything extravagant that happened while I was with them. It was rather relaxing yet fun as we pretty much played video games, ate out at restaurants, traveled to a couple of malls, and went to the beach.

One of my very good friends from the Disney College Program surprised me the day before my birthday with buying me a 3DS. I’m actually loving the system! As of now, I have The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Two Worlds and Pokemon X, making it my very first Pokemon game ever. ^^;

As for art, I did receive two very awesome gift pieces, and here they are!

Lucy Martinez Gift
Jane Hanzawa Gift

Overall, this birthday was fantastic, and I’m glad to have taken the time off of work to celebrate it. :) For those that wished me a happy birthday, thank you. ^^ You guys have no idea how much it means to me. After how this month started, this was a much needed boost.

Art for the Castlevania inspired stuff will come soon! Just need to set aside that time for it. I’m almost done with Symphony of the Night though! Even though I may not get to the other Castlevania games, there will always be another time for them. :)

Thanks for reading and thank you once again for the birthday wishes!

This is Eddie the Wolf, and that’s the bottom line!

Edwin Hulbert, Jr. (1937-2014)

Hey all, once again.

As you’ve read the title, my grandfather passed away at the beginning of this month. I received a text from my mom around 11:30 pm on October 1st. It was 30 minutes after the fact. I struggled to sleep that night as I talked with several of my friends about it and played some Symphony of the Night. I only got four hours of sleep, and then it was off to work. A couple of hours into the shift was when it really hit hard, and I just wasn’t into the spirit of things. It just didn’t seem like six months had gone my when my mom’s dad passed away, and now this.

Before any of this really happened, he hadn’t been in the best of health and was afraid of going to the doctors. It’s unfortunate that he had to go like this though. All I can do is just remember the good times I had with him. The best times were when the family would go to the beach and have breakfast. Thinking about it makes me want to have some of his cooking again preparing the eggs, bagels, and sausages.

But anyway, it’s just going to be a very surreal feeling next time I see the relatives without him there. How does one lose two grandparents in the same year? I don’t know… It is very hard for me to comprehend it, but life does go on.

Whereas my mom’s dad was 83 when he passed away, my dad’s dad was 77. If you were to make a comparison of the two, you would have thought that my mom’s dad looked young compared to my dad’s dad.

He may not have been the perfect person, but he was family through and through. He will be missed, and I know that he isn’t suffering anymore. Both of my grandfathers were great men, and I’m glad to have been with them.
