Frozen 2 is Seriously Not Ok and we All Should be Outraged

When I sat down to watch Frozen 2 with my girlfriend, I expected a fun, interesting and musical adventure. What I did not expect was an unscientific, uneducated advert for homeopathic pseudoscience.But first of all, what is homeopathy? It's a kind of alternate medicine which claims that by diluting natural substances in water over and … Continue reading Frozen 2 is Seriously Not Ok and we All Should be Outraged

Animal Crossing Still Needs to Fix This!

I really love animal crossing as a game franchise, and I have played it for far too long than I would like to admit. But there has always been one thing incredibly frustrating for me which I have to put with for to long, and it's time to speak out. The most infuriating thing about … Continue reading Animal Crossing Still Needs to Fix This!

我学中文一年了,我的中文怎么样?

我学中文学了一年了,现在我的中文怎么样?对我来说我的中文还是非常差,但是我的进步很快。我今年用了很多时间学听力和阅读。因为我很少学口语和写作,所以我的听力和阅读能力比写作和口语好。我还没考HSK4是因为新冠病毒,我要是去考试肯定会通过。 如果我很少说中文,很少写汉字,我怎么学习?看电影,看电视剧, 看书。现在我一边写中文一边听有声小说,叫“查理和巧克力工厂” 因为我的中文水平不错,所以我可以看各种中国的娱乐节目和书,但是我并不是都明白。这是我学习的方法。看电影的时候,如果我不明白,我就查那个我不知道的词的意思。我不会去试图记住这个词,只是想明白我现在看的句子。因为翻译很快,我可以享受中国电影,所以学习不会让我感觉太烦。 学习的开始最难了,因为每个词你都不知道,所以你必须要学基础的词。可是一但你学完基础的词和语法你可以更多享受学习。我看过 ‘Well intended love’, ‘Accidently in Love’ and ‘Take my brother away’  (这个电视剧在Netflix上所以不知道中文名)都比学基础的东西有有意思,而且有用。 虽然这些节目很有意思,但是看它们还是让我累了。大部分的中国电视剧都是45分钟。因为我有工作,工作以后难以看45分钟的电视剧,所以我用‘LINGQ’看书。 你想要学中文的话,我最推荐看书。首先书很方便。你有5分钟或者5个小时的话都可以看书。不用看完45分钟的节目,你在想看的时候可以随便看书。中文口语是中文的一部分。书里不仅有中文口语,还有比较复杂的句子,描述的句子很多。还有,看书很慢,如果你想,就可以花时间让你明白每一个句子! 现在我的方法不是每天试图记住很多生词。我就是享受用中文接触各种的有意思的中国的视频和书。虽然我没有试图记住词,但是我还渐渐学会了新的词。你看书的时候会看到同一个词很多次,因为你看过这个词很多次,你自然会记住那个词。多有意思和好玩的方法! 我自信有一天可以说流利的中文。在我达到那个水平之前,我打算继续享受学习中文!   谢谢你们来看我的博客文章!如果你有学习的建议请告诉我! 我差不多每年发一个中文博客文章,如果人们喜欢的话,我可以发更多的文章!谢谢!

Thoughts On Monty Python’s Infamous, Insensitive Crucifixion Scene

The controversy of Monty Python's The Life of Brian has mostly passed, and that's because the message of their film was not intended to be controversial. As John Cleese and Michael Palin say in their debate about the nature of the film, it is by no means intended to debunk Christ. It is far too … Continue reading Thoughts On Monty Python’s Infamous, Insensitive Crucifixion Scene

Why I hope Yahweh is Not Real – Comments, Thoughts, and Responses

Obviously I released a post titled "God is not real" and there was a heck of a lot of discussion! You can find my initial argument here. However to summarise it, I don't want any God to exist, because as a minimum, any religion being correct would result in 72% of the population having eternal … Continue reading Why I hope Yahweh is Not Real – Comments, Thoughts, and Responses

I Like These Scenes In Drama A Lot – And I Still Dislike Superlative Questions the Most!

See the kind of joke in the title? Yeah that kind of thing is my favourite.

Introductions Count For Characters, Please Use Better Writing!

If you introduce a character to be a certain way, then if they suddenly change in the next episode for seemingly no reason then it's kind of clear that there was an error with the characters introduction as they seemingly give off the wrong impression. The character like this for me was Chu Yun from … Continue reading Introductions Count For Characters, Please Use Better Writing!

This Has To Be The Most Messed Up Start To A Relationship In Asian Drama!

Netflix has a certain drama called "Well-Intended Love" and if I'm being completely honest, "Well-Intended" are the only really good ways to describe it. Because although it's fine now, and smooth sailing, it wasn't always like that. Let me tell you the story of how these couples came to be. A person called Ling was … Continue reading This Has To Be The Most Messed Up Start To A Relationship In Asian Drama!

To Download or To Stream…To Pirate or To Buy… What To Do? Yeah… What To Do?

Should you stream or download? It's a question asked surprisingly a lot yet I don't personally think there should be much of a debate. Surely it's stream right? Like why bother downloading when it's freely available right there? I might see it like this. Streaming is more convenient, whereas downloading (and we all know we're … Continue reading To Download or To Stream…To Pirate or To Buy… What To Do? Yeah… What To Do?

My Worst Asian Drama Experience Was With “The Handmaiden”

I cannot really talk about the worst Asian Drama's I've seen, because I've honestly seen so little bad that I don't want to talk about it, because it would be unfair on the thing I was talking about. So instead how about we talk about some really, really bad viewing experiences. So enter the handmaiden, … Continue reading My Worst Asian Drama Experience Was With “The Handmaiden”

Why I Avoid Live Action Adaptations From Anime And Manga – Using Liar Game As An Example

Before I even got into Asian Drama's I was a fan of this manga called Liar Game, and thought it would be interesting if there was an anime adaptation of it.

How To Use Memrise Effectively – Or How I Learned Three Hundred and Four Words in Three Weeks (at least)

I don't know if 304 words sounds like a lot for three weeks, after-all 14-15 words a day sounds doable. However I must also specify that this was alongside a lot of grammar study and hanzi memorisation. As well as that, this only accounts for words used by memrise, I didn't actually use it very … Continue reading How To Use Memrise Effectively – Or How I Learned Three Hundred and Four Words in Three Weeks (at least)

“I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

"Confessions" is a manga written by Fukumoto Noboyuki but drawn by another person who draws with a different art style. Fukumoto's art style is iconic and excellent however I can only assume that it was to create a different tone that he switched artist. Which to be honest was a good choice. Confessions opens with … Continue reading “I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

Why Talking About Halloween Spooky Scary Bullshit is Important to Me

A lot of people sigh at things like I'm doing such as only talking about horror for a whole month of the year, it means 1/12 of my months are horror related when there are so many other genre's to dedicate a month to.
