Me & My Muse – Day 2396: A Fish…

What do you get when you cross The Little Mermaid with Pinocchio? You get Ponyo, the next classic written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

The high today is going to be 31 degrees and the silver lining will be seeing this movie tonight.

To those of you who like Miyazaki movies, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse: I love that movie, too. I can’t wait until tonight!

Me & My Muse – Day 2395: An Airplane…

Have you ever wanted to fly?  Those of us with the freedom to can.  With the freedom to fly, you can soar into the heavens, achieving whatever dream you want to achieve.

But suppose you can’t fly.  You try to, but can’t.  Your feet are glued to the ground.  There is no way that you can defeat the laws of gravity.  You know that you can’t fly, but why?  You are nearsighted.  Nearsighted of all the dreams that are before you.  Nearsighted of all the dreams that are around you and above you.  You want to fly, but how do you fly?

An idea springs into your head.  You may not be able to fly, but you can give others the ability to fly.  So you make it a dream to design the best “flying machines” in the world.  Flying machines that will give all the ability to fly and touch their dreams in the heavens.  You work on these machines really hard and are praised for your accomplishments.  You may not be able to fly, but somebody notices you in the distance.  They utter a profound declaration that blows over your eyes like the wind at the highest altitudes.  To you, you may not have been flying but in reality you were flying the whole time.  You were flying without even realizing it.  And when this realization hits you, your eyes become awash with tears.  You flew.   You touched the heavens.  You made their dreams possible.  All thanks to your “flying machines”.

If you haven’t guessed by now, this is a setup for tonight’s anime movie.  The Wind Rises,  another classic written and Directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

 

Muse:  The Wind Rises?  It’s pretty good, having seen it last year…

I know.  I like how it turned out.

Muse:  I also like how it’s a historical movie. It follows the life of Jiro Horikoshi, designer of the Mitsubishi A5M fighter aircraft and its successor, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, both used for the Empire of Japan during World War II.

With that, the movie takes place during the early 20th century.  It’s another historical movie, like Steamboy.

Anyway, I think we’re done talking about the movie.

Muse:  Done talking about the movie? Alright.  I’m going to read now.  Let me know when it comes on, as I want to see it with you!

I certainly will.  Don’t worry.

Today’s high is going 35 degrees and the silver lining is seeing The Wind Rises later tonight.

To those of you who love to fly, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  With all his talk about flying, I’m creating my own special aircraft.  There.  Time to test it out!  This is going to be fun!  Now boarding Muse Airlines…

Me & My Muse – Day 2394: An Invention…

We may be in the age of technology, but go back 150 years.  Things were a lot different back then.  This was the age of the Industrial Revolution.  The age of steam powered engines.  Back then, it was the age of steam.

In Russian Alaska, the ultimate fuel for steam powered engines was discovered.  A pure mineral water capable of producing a copious amount of steam.  This steam was harnessed by Edward Steam, and placed into one of his inventions.  A steam ball capable of storing very large amounts of pressurized steam.

As you may guess, this is in anticipation for tonight’s anime movie.  Steamboy, a timeless classic written and directed by Katsuhiro Otomo.

 

Muse:  Steamboy?  I like that movie, too!  That Scarlett is kind of like that Muse that I used to possess a couple years ago.  I like her character, since she gets better later in the movie.

I know.  I now need to get ready for work.

Muse:  I’ll let you do that.  Time for some dusting!

 

That’s it.  Work this day and watch Steamboy tonight.

Today’s high is going to be 35 degrees and the silver lining is watching Steamboy tonight.

To those of you who like steampunk movies, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I can’t wait until tonight!  The music is good in this one, too…

Me & My Muse – Day 2393: A City…

Not just any city, but the city of Metropolis, where the mighty building called the Ziggurat is being constructed.  When finished, it will be the greatest marvel mankind has ever achieved.  It will challenge the heavens and will pave the way for a glorious future.  A future where man’s influence of power knows no limits.

 

Actually, this is in anticipation for the first movie of Anime Movie Night.  For seven nights, I will be watching an anime movie.  The first one is Metropolis, a movie written by Katsuhiro Otomo and directed by Rintaro.

 

Muse:  Metropolis?  I love that movie!  I am…who?

Yes.  I also like Tima in the movie.  Well, I have some business to attend to.  I will be going to church and having breakfast with my grandparents.  After that, I will be go home and the movie will begin.

Muse:  I’ll let you do that.  Time to get ready!

 

That’s about today in a nutshell.  Go to church and have breakfast with my grandparents.  And, of course, watch Metropolis tonight.

Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is watching Metropolis tonight.

To those of you who love anime movies, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I especially like the ending song.  I can’t stop loving you, I’ve made up my mind…

Me & My Muse – Day 2392: Saturday Solitude

So far, this Saturday has been quite peaceful.  All is quiet at my new abode.  I had my breakfast and I’m all ready to go for the day.

Since I want to enjoy myself today, I’m going to cut this one short.  You should enjoy yourself, too.   Check back tomorrow for another wonderful morsel of bloggy goodness!

Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is having a Saturday off to enjoy.

To those of you who are enjoying this Saturday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I’m enjoying this Saturday, too!  And tomorrow, the anime movies begin.  I can’t wait to watch them with you!  Time to continue reading my book…

Me & My Muse – Day 2391: Friday Finale

Having finished work for the day, I am now ready to relax.  It’s Friday afternoon and my brother’s all moved in.  He hasn’t come home yet, but he should later on.

With the weekend underway, what should I do?

 

Muse:  I know what I’m going to do!  Take over Hyrule!  HA HA HA HA HA!!!

Dark Muse, or should I say Zalassa!  I know that you’re in her!  Get out of her, now!

Muse:  Why don’t you make me?  I’m up for the challenge against a puny man!

*Muse flashes and instantly transforms Hyrule into a gray land shrouded in darkness*

Muse:  And that is only a fraction of my power!  Getting rid of you should be easy!

So this is how it happened, huh?  In the future, every hero of that era is defeated.  During the Second Calamity, the very last hero is slain.  So this is how it starts?

Muse:  How else would it start?  The king wants all heroes eliminated, including you!

???:  That is right!

Muse:  Ganondorf!  King!  I was about to take care of…

Ganondorf:  Enough!  Zalassa, you can come out of her now!  I want the Muse imprisoned!

Zalassa:  That will not be necessary, your highness.  As you can see, I control all of her wisdom as long as I possess her.  If I leave, she could retain her powers…

Ganondorf:  Very well, but do remember that you are the extension of my power!  To fully control her wisdom, I will need you to return to me.

Zalassa:  Let’s not forget that puny hero.  We need his courage for the Triforce to appear!

Ganondorf:  That hero will be but a distant memory blotted out from time.  Just like all the other heroes that I have done away with.  Just wait.  Wisdom, Power, and Courage are all gathered together.  Behold!  The very last moments of this era of Hyrule!

Zalassa:  Before you bring an end, my king, I will do what you wish.  I will return to you!

*Zalassa enters Ganondorf and begins flashing brightly*

Ganondorf:  What…Huh?  What are you doing to meee…?

*Ganondorf continues to flash, and his face morphs into the face of a woman*

Zalassa:  Yessssssss…He fell for it…

*Zalassa continues flashing, transforming into gigantic beast with dragon wings and fangs*

I’ve heard and seen enough.  Zalassa, you are going down!

Zala:  WEAKLING…ZALASSSSSA IS NO MORE.  FEAR ZALA, THE DEMON QUEEN!

So our pig demon is now a dragon demon?  You’re nothing more than a copycat of Ganon…

Zala:  HISSSSSSSS…GANON IS A WEAK PATHETIC FOOL!  HIS FORM IS MINDLESSSS…MY FORM UTILIZES WHAT HE LACKED…WISSSSDOM!

So what?  We get a female Ganon that’s more intelligent.  I’m tired of your stupid and arrogant speeches.  You no longer have any power.  One Privilege…

*Zala flashes, causing the One Privilege to come out of me and into her in a powerful flash*

Zala:  ENGAGE?  HISSSSSS!!!  I NOW HAVE ALL THREE: WISDOM, COURAGE, AND POWER!  NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW! FAREWELL, LAST HERO…

*Zala flashes, destroying me in a blast of powerful energy*

*everything goes to black*

 

Huh…Ughnn…Where am I?

*glances around area to see a golden landscape covered in golden light*

The Creator:  You are in the Sacred Realm.  I brought you here after Zala killed you.

So am I alive?

The Creator: You are very much alive.  I breathed life back into you.  Now, listen to me.  I am going to give you a powerful sword that is going to vanquish Zala, no matter what she does to you.  Her powers will not be able to stand up to such a privileged weapon.

*a powerful flashing sword descends from the sky, wrapped in golden light*

A gold sword?  What is this sword of legend?

The Creator:  Behold…I bestow upon you the Legendary One Sword.  It has the power of the One Privilege, but no ordinary one.  This One Privilege is my own making, and it has the blessing of the Triforce and Hylia’s too…

*holds sword and brandishes it*

I can feel the power flowing through my body.  Zala will fall in one strike.  I will not swing twice.

The Creator:  One swing is more than enough.  Now go!  You are the very last hero that can save Hyrule!

*gets teleported to the future, to a gloomy Hyrule covered in thick purple smoke*

I remember this place.  This was where the Second Calamity took place…

Zala:  HISSSS…YOU AGAIN?  HOW DID YOU COME BACK?!!  SSSSSSSSSSSS!!!  EVERY LASSSST HERO IS GONE, EXCEPT FOR YOU!  I WILL DESSSSSTROY YOU AS BEFORE! SSSSSSS!!!  I AM THE CALAMITY ZALA!!!!

Well then, “Calamity Zala”, prepare for a new Calamity…My Calamity!

*raises sword skyward, causing a powerful pillar of light to flow downward into it, like a waterfall*

It’s time you meet the fate of those villains who are defeated by heroes that herald happy endings!  Farewell, Calamity Zala!

*waves brightly flashing sword at Calamity Zala*

*Calamity Zala vanishes and another form appears*

Let me guess…I killed the Windblight form…Three more blights, I guess…

*strikes Waterblight Zala, Fireblight Zala, and Thunderblight Zala, killing each blight in one hit*

Now for you true form. Begone!!!

*strikes Calamity Zala, making her vanish once again*

Let me guess…You’re going to transform into your Dark Beast form…

*appears in vast field, with a gigantic dark beast form of Zala roaming around*

This is it.  Hyrule is getting all of its heroes back.  You, and every incarnation of you will be put to rest.  One Sword, ENGAGE!

*blasts powerful beam out of One Sword, causing a deep wound to penetrate Dark Beast Zala*

Zala:  NO…IT CANNOT BE!!! I LOST…BUT THE KING WILL LIVE ON.  AS LONG AS THERE IS DARKNESS IN THE HEARTS OF OTHERS…HE…WILL…ENDURE…AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Zala flashes and vanishes, in an explosive beam of light*

Now I need the Triforce to put this right…

*raises one sword into the air*

Triforce, come forth!

*Triforce descends out of the sky, in a beam of golden light*

Now, I have to lay my hands on the Triforce and it will grant my wish.  Restore peace to Hyrule and revive every fallen hero in history.  Triforce, grant my wish!

*Triforce flashes, and fills the land with a blinding golden light*

Whoa…I’m getting sleepy…

“Kyle!”

Huh?

Muse!

Muse:  You have been asleep for quite some time.  You did it.  The Triforce heard your wish.  You ended both Great Calamities and brought peace back to Hyrule…

And I see Hyrule Castle, with no purple smoke!  No malice anywhere!

Dark Muse:  That’s right!  Tee hee!

You caused quite a bit of trouble as Zalassa…

Dark Muse:  *sigh*  I know…But it was part of the transformation!  I’m now a tween Lolita girl that loves to collect bugs!  Tee hee!  If you have any bugs, bring them to me!

I’ll keep that in mind…Agitha…

Muse:  I think that Ganondorf corrupted her transformation with his power.  After all, the Triforce did appear on her hand, didn’t it?

Dark Muse:  It did!  But there’s no Triforce now.  Tee hee…

Well, with another happy ending, I’m going to enjoy the rest of my day.

Muse:  So will I.  I’m going to find Impa.  Come and visit me, okay?

Certainly.  Are you ready for a bunch of movies?

Muse:  Anime movie week, right!  I am!

Dark Muse:  So am I!  I would love to be part of the action!  Tee hee!

Okay.  I visit you both later and you, Miss Parasol Lolita, I won’t about the bugs.  See you later!

*teleports back to reality*

I will now enjoy what’s left of the day.

Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is the weekend finally being here.

To those of you who are excited about the weekend, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  It’s nice that Hyrule is safe again!

Impa:  It is.  There is peace again.  Hopefully this peace will last a long time…Eek!  A ladybug!

Dark Muse:  Another one?  Hooray!  I have another guest that I can invite to the ball!  All it needs is a mate.  Mr. Ladybug, where are you?  I have plenty of bug friends in my insect kingdom for you to meet!  Come out, come out!  Cute little Ladybug.  I want to hug you to pieces!

Me & My Muse – Day 2390: Welcome Brother!

Having finished work early today, I am now in the midst of moving my brother in to my new place.  I have been moving some furniture and some other odds and ends.  Mainly our couch, his computer desk, and his bed.

My grandma also has some dinner for us and my parents.  We’ll be going over there to get it.  After that, I’ll be enjoying the first evening with my brother.  So welcome home, brother!

Today’s high is going to be 34 degrees and the silver lining is my brother finally moving in to my place (now our place).

To those of you who have ever helped someone move in, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I can totally relate to your moving in!  When my sister moved in, I had to help her with all the things that she had to move.  Overall, it was a pretty easy move…Tee hee…That reminds me.  I have not see her in a while…

 

Meanwhile…

 

Zalassa:  So she misses me?  Don’t worry.  You will see me very soon.  The king will have the Triforce very soon!  HA HA HA HA HA…
