Why I love Hiro Mashima

Other manga artists: “Oh, no new chapter this week guys. Sorry for not giving you a heads up last week, I just feel like taking a little break.”

Hiro Mashima: “Hey guys! TWO CHAPTERS NEXT WEEK! Why? I dunno. I was bored and decided to do extra work while simultaneously playing video games (the man ACTUALLY does this). And guess what?! Also a special little omake chapter, and all with color covers and inserts! Again, why? Really. No reason. You know what? Next next week has two chapters too! Four chapters for everyone!”

Hiro Mashima/Fairy Tail fans: 

Please don’t ever stop making manga Mashima sensei!

Rearranged my super small work area at home.

I’m rocking a HP DV7 laptop and a custom built dual iCore7 behemoth housed in an Antec 900 case.

The laptop is sitting on a Cooler Master’s best fan, the SF 19 which glows in several different colors, I keep it red to stick with my other CM gear.

The two mice in the pictures are also Cooler Master products, two of their best mice in the Storm series. The keyboard is a SteelSeries, which also glows different colors..again I chose red.

I love technology.


I got to review a laptop cooler for

The design is effective, simple and sleek, taking up so little room that it stays with my laptop at all times. I mention in the video below that I planned to use the device while playing League of Legends to test out the limits of its cooling capacity in combination with a throw blanket, increased computing needs and my psychotic rise in temperature from attacking first and thinking later. It worked swimmingly.


Golshifteh Farahani as Eowyn Ewunia, of the House of Phraates—a noblewoman and Bow-wife of Rohas, niece of the late King Tiridâta and sister to King Eamad. She spent much of her youth caring for her ailing uncle, yearning for an opportunity to prove herself in battle. Her longing drove her to disguise herself as a man and accompany the Rohatim to Minas Tirith, where she won great acclaim at the Battle of Pelennor Fields by slaying the Witch-King with the aid of Meriada Brandybuck. Recovering from her injuries in Gondor’s Houses of Healing, she met Faraleth, the Steward of Gondor, and the two were married soon after. They settled in Ithilien after the War of the Ring.
