Just found out about these yesterday and wanted to share 'em with you guys. A number of web-speech initials (TMI, FYI, and LOL are some of them) are being added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Also being added are the heart emoticon (<3 or ♥) and the words "Hentai" and "Smack Talk", both of which would've been on there years ago in my view.

More of my opinion on this

 
I'm very fine with both "Hentai and "Smack Talk" being on there, but I'm not so sure if those web abbreviates should be on any dictionary after the thought of them taking over everyone's full vocabulary and using 'em as everyday speech in real life. I also wonder how much hentai the OED staff had seen, even though this looks like they only discovered the stuff last month. Then again, this is one of the questions that's better off not being answered after all...

 Yeah, it's surprising at a time like this, but allow me to at least give you some news that isn't so depressing.

(Note: This is the first of the "This Is NO Bull/Bluff" Blogs, where I have some news that relates to this site's theme & have some choice questions about the topic.This first one's for AV, CV and Screened.)
Earlier this week, it was confirmed that a K-Drama version of Hana-Kimi (AKA “For You In Full Blossom”) based on the manga will be produced by SME and soon and will be most likely known as "Beautiful You". There is also a possibility of some Korean stars will be present, but none are announced as of this post.

Question In Mind (for all)

How do you normally feel about your favorite comic/manga series being adapted into a TV show or movie?
Author's Opinion: It depends on the series, though. If It happened to be a series I'm familiar with, then I will most likely see the movie/show unless I notice that something wrong's in the picture, which I've experienced three times too many. I will look forward to this despite already being on Episode 10 or 11 of the J-Drama (which is funny as hell on my book). I'm wondering on your opinions on this as well, dear readers.

 Happy First Anniversary of Whiskey media to me! <3
 Happy First Anniversary of Whiskey media to me! <3
 
My Whiskey Media Anniversary was really on November 30th, but I'll celebrate it today, anyway. It's been over a full year since I joined the very first Whiskey Site which was Anime Vice for me. I was a Wiki addict back there, but I later joined the forums for that site, which also greatly improved my charisma over time. I later joined all the other sites one day when I learned of the other Whiskey Sites on their corporate page. Even though I haven't been at Tested often, I had fun on all the sites especially back at Giant Bomb, Screened and Comic Vine because hardly anything dull ever happens on those sites whether it's the Wiki or the Fourms, but I give my thanks to everyone for being so fun. 
Merry (early) Christmas, BH.

Apparently, I witnessed an advertisement above this site's banner and on the side, too (the latter's only when I'm on the boards). Plus I also noticed another quest set which meant to be on all of the sites, but I only seem to see that one here on Anime Vice (I checked my other Whiskey Media accounts and they're not there). I'd give a bit of detail, but that might be huge trouble 'cause I think that set's still in the works. I wonder if anyone else is seeing this too whether they were using both Firefox and Internet Explorer like me, but I might be wrong.
 
UPDATE!: The "Stalker Status" set's officially released and I just found some glitches to it. For example, one of them's in color on my "Incomplete" quest list. The ads are still here though.

Sorry this took so long, all! and if you're wondering, I'm reffering to my real self (Bladering's my nickname outside of the AV and CV RPG boards [and my real name inside of them] if you haven't read my last blog). Right now, I'm still getting used to Atlanta but things feel a lot more different than any of my birthdays back in KC alone (even though I don't feel old at all). I already visited Stone Mountain Park and it's was good, but I'm willing to see more attractions later on like the Georgia Aquarium
     
Well, that's it for now, and don't worry, I'll blog more often XD.
