27Shoot, its that time of the year again where for unknown reasons random people start saying 'Happy Birthday' to me. Yes it is true, I am another year closer to death (Ry is really optimistic sometimes isnt he?). WELL its all good, I mean I just wanna take a minute to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, today has been quite pleasant actually. Received many gifts from fellow Ryceballs, some nice messages, and I did a little Livestream that I think people quite enjoyed and had a good laugh. All going well so far. So yes, 27 years down, what a life! Well since today is my special day, I have decided to take you guys for a ride in the Life of Ry journey, what was Ry doing 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?!

Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 yearsOk, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with him and introduced Tomoo to me. I was shaking.. I was sweating.. I didn't know whether I should shake his hands or high 5 or hug or what... At the end I chose to bow, well thats what Japanese do right? So I bowed, I remember bowing and felt stupid after. IreallyhadnoideahowtogreetpeopleandIstilldon't.

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe hPS4 vs Xbox One who wins?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTSWhy hello there! You all might have been wondering about my recent poll about voice acting.THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, obviously, I will tell you.
I'm kinda bored of looping animations and I wanted to experiment more with short animations that actually end for once with a replay button. But I like shorts that have sounds, music, voices, all that good stuff in a movie. So what I'm thinking, I'm going to get me some voices! How do I do that? well, First of all, I'll have some try-outs for some of my characters and such. Best voice gets to be picked as the character! However, I won't have you choose which character, for it's going to be harder to try and act it out as them, so what I'm going to do is to have you try your best with voice acting, and I'll put you under the character that suits your voice the best!
How will I know? Simple, I'll have a list of lines for you to say, and in a tone, try to speak it. Some lines will be only for males, females, and some lines for both genders. I won't say how or what

I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

FML. The Super Mario Galaxy StoryYou guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention.

This story happened a few years ago.FML. The Super Mario Galaxy Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out
Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future. The desert was hot as hell by the way, don't really recommend it, what my soul was doing there is beyond me.Back from Rysolation2 years ago in Personal More Like This

So the thing is... I haven't drawn a Jazz gijinka yet. I've had one in mind, but I haven't drawn it.
Now, what I would like, would be for you guys to draw what you think the newi Jazz gijinka would look like (It doesn't have to be that great, just a sketch would be fine as long as I can make it out).
The winning gijinka will be drawn by me to fit the style of the other gijinka pictures that I have done, and any time that particular gijinka would be used, I would feature the artist who came up with the original design.
To make this fair, I will make some kind of group judgement with a few people, so the final decision won't be from just me.
There is no fixed deadline as of now, but when there are enough entries,
Apologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox SuspensionAs you may know, a few days ago Nintendo suspended 3DS's swapnote/letterbox (Depending on which country your from) system, due to users exchanging offensive material. What Letterbox is? its a software that allows you to write letters or draw doodles or attach pictures and send it to your friends. Its a great little fun software, I always liked Letterbox, I use it a lot to draw funny pictures of pikachu and top hats to friends. And... also for.. umm...... *deep breath 1 2 3* Ok.

Hi its me your somtimes friendly neighbourhood Ry-Man. Ok I've been playing Injustice: Dogs Among Us :I. And kinda in a superhero mood at the moment, especially after playing the story of Injustice.. and without spoiling too much, pretty much the story starts off with Superman being tricked into killing Lois and their unborn child, which in turn changed Superman into killing his enemies and eventually turning into an asshole. I like how it shows that even heroes can have a dark side to them. This got me thinking... what if I had super powers? Would I use it to help others or just benefit myself? Would I use it for good or evil? Will my believe be the same as most people in the world? Or different from everyone? (Which would in turn make me a villain). Am I asking myself too many questions and worry that I might one day turn into a crazy woman with 20 cats? HMMMMM I WONDER!
