  1. [size="1"][B]Journal of Hedryn Darrell, December 20, 2007[/B] I'm so tired. Well, some interesting things have happened in the last few weeks. We barely survived a mass attack by the Zombies. We had maintained almost complete quietude outside, never wanting to attract too many to our location. Long story short, a few girls completely lost it and started screaming to God to save us. Before we could quiet them, we had zombies masses. Attracted by the zombies on the move, more came. Amazing how about 15 seconds of screaming could spell our downfall - at least, that's what it
  2. [size="1"] [[//real life. Sorry everyone, my internet has been down for the past two days. Gah, look at all I missed! I'll try to catch up.] [B] Journal of Hedryn Darrell October 20th.[/B] I wasn't wrong. I was right. And it's a good thing I've been training so hard. Because it looks like it's the apocalypse. Please God, keep my friends, my family, and I safe. I know we can get through this. We'll just need a [i]lot[/i] of divine help, Okay? More later, I just can't talk now.

  3. [size="1"][B]Journal of Hedryn Darrell September 22, 2007 [/B] Has it really been this long since I've written? I honestly can't believe it, almost a month. Christ (sorry God!), I never thought it possible. I've got good excuses. For one thing, school is amazing. Columbia, on eof the most reknowned schools in possibly the world. My classmates are literally from all corners of the Earth, and the professors are the best in their fields. It's amazing. And the crowd is great too. I've already got an amazing group of friends who I know I'll be sticking with for the whole four years. I'm taking k
  4. [SIZE="1"]Journal of Hedryn Darrell August 26th, 2007 [I]Christmas break of '98 just flipped me upside down, one coast now to the other, followin' the sound. Headed west to get the best of what we all knew then...[/I] Yellowcard - Rock Star Land. Though Key was on his way to California to start Yellowcard's career when he wrote this song, it completely understand the emotion of this song as I sit on the train, looking out at the blinding landscape, on my way to New York City to start my college career. At least Xander's with me, I'd hate to be thrown into NYC without anyone I could c
  5. [size="1"][COLOR="black"][COLOR="black"][B]Name: [/B]Hedryn Darrell [B]Age: [/B]17 [B]Gender:[/B] Male. [B]Body:[/B] African American, 6 feet tall, lean and fairly strong, but not particularly athletic. Hair kept short, but not shaped (aka "shape up" lines in the front or back). Brown, often described as intelligent, and serious eyes. 160 pounds. Usual clothing style leans more towards that of the typical caucasian teenage male than that of the stereotypical African-American. Long, somewhat loose jeans, and a fitted tee, black 3" cloth wristband and rubber cause-wristbands on right arm, sil
  6. [SIZE=1]I was also shocked to see Dir en Grey on the list with popular rock/metal bands American bands. I had only heard of them from my anime/japanese-enthused Otaku friends, and I had tried to listen to their music once, out of mild curiosity. Don't think I made it thirty seconds in. Interesting indeed, I can only wonder what the American fans think.[/SIZE]
  7. [SIZE=1]This is...hilarious. A leaving member made a borderline incoherent post, and everyone has completely forgotten the original topic to actually pay attention, talking on and on about their shoes. And I find it infectious as well. Shouldn't someone go ahead and make a topic about the shoes so that this thread may die in peace, since BlueEyedAngel seems to have fled the scene and there is no debate with only one side. Honestly...hilarious. Personally, I find Vans to be an [B]excellent[/B] brand of shoes, that are still holding up after a year of wear and tear. However, due
  8. [SIZE=1]Hm. This debate is now so far ranging, I'll just focus my debate on what facets particularly reach out to me. [QUOTE]I prefer the company of people of my own race. This does not mean that I have no friends of other races, it merely means that I am more comfortable amongst my own kinsmen.[/QUOTE] Your stereotypes very much annoy me, BlueEyedAngel. Your kinsmen, or peers, are not defined by their race. This type of nepotistic, essentially facist viewpoint was a favorite of Hitler's. Your kinsmen [I]should be[/I] defined by a range of common interests and personality, wh
  9. [SIZE=1]Rather be, because if I realize I am unwanted company, I can and would just leave the situation, or try to fix it somehow. Having unwanted company is simply annoying. Personally I really can't stand it. Would you rather work outside in the blazing sun and burning weather for 3 hours? or Work inside doing monotonous paperwork for five?[/SIZE]
  10. [SIZE=1]Pagan has a point. Yes, myspace and otakuboards are different, but there are many young, naive kids on here as well. Now, I've never seen anyone give out more than their A/S/L on OB, and honestly, how many 16 year old "Alex" or "John"s are living in a given state or even city? The problem with myspace is that it has pictures, schools, and generally, enough information to [i]find[/i] the person, if some pedophile were so driven. Hopefully no innocent newbie would give out enough personal information on OB for someone to pinpoint them, like on myspace. However, people really s
  11. [SIZE=1]I posted in this topic earlier, but now my most recent purchase is Angels and Airwaves - We Don't Need to Whisper. To be honest, this is one of the best CD's I've ever heard, which by the way, says very little considering my very small musical experience. Regardless, I have never heard more captivating melodies than these. A combination of the synthy + vocals + modern rock, brilliant lyrics. I've listened to this CD more than any other in the few weeks I've had it, and I can't believe that I'm not sick of every song on it yet. Their music is awe-inspiring. ~Ryo[/size]
  12. [SIZE=1]Angels and Airwaves, as my more nerdy friends would say, is "teh uber swag". From the first time I heard "The Adventure" I was completely hooked. I listened to all the songs I could find on their site (I don't do that pirate thing). What got me was, the four songs I listened to were all perfectly fine. I rush to get their CD, We Don't Need to Whisper, and what do I see? Parental Advisory? Deus ex machina! What's up with that? Needless to say I was annoyed, because sadly, I'm underage (though not by much), and if I asked my parents..wouldn't be fun. Can anyone tell me [I]why[/I] it
  13. [SIZE=1]Busch Gardens. Water Ride. Fifty Degrees. Yeah. Momentary lapse of judgement, I got too caught up in the moment and went along with my friends. I made a personal promise to never, ever lose my judgement or get too caught up in being with friends to do something stupid. Though it was harmless - and miserable afterwards - who knows when it could be more serious next time? As for the suicide, that's kinda creepy. Glad you decided you didn't want to die. ~Ryo[/SIZE]
  14. [SIZE=1]I recently bought four CDs: The Fray - How to Save a Life: Soaring vocals and brilliant lyrics make this CD for me. I love the tracks "Over my Head", "All at Once", and "Trust Me". Quite nice, I'm glad I found out about this band. I don't think there's any song I honestly don't like. All American Rejects - All American Rejects: Yeah, I'm making up for lost time, I only got into contemporary music recently. Gotta love "Swing, Swing" and "The Last Song" which I had been listening to on the official site. I was pleasantly surprised that all the rest of the songs on the CD were q
  15. [SIZE=1]Pachelbel's Canon is definetly high on my list, and I definetly like Moonlight Sonata too. But the less classical side is more interesting, and if we're speaking in terms of beautiful, it would probably be [I]The Song Of Mana[/I]. Such melody. Oh, there's so many other beautiful songs. "Pure Snow" and especially "Wishing for an Eternal Sky" are also very high on my list. There are others, but to try to order them would be a horrid task. And Tyler, you sound like a hardcore band geek. Awesomeness! I play Clarinet and some very basic piano, so it's all good. I would love to pla
