As for the late Jack Krovokin…
His ‘Death Machine’ just ran out of luck!

Dashboard Updates!

Published October 27, 2011 by ladyserenity92

Recently I’ve been checking my ‘dashboard’ for new trends to talk about. Two of the most favorite are about my children’s story: “Obon: Day of the Dead” and about South Korean actor/singer Rain. I have some bittersweet news to tell you about.

First the bitterness.

Rain has ‘retired’ from the entrainment business to focus on his military service. Rain gave his final picture (haircut and uniform) before deploying for duty. The 20-something year old performer has said that this is a sacrifice he must make for the sake of not only his country, but the world and his fans. Rain man’s training will be 21 months of hard work. As a military personnel, the former performer will get no special treatment.

I wish the best for Rain in making a sacrifice for his country.

Obon Odori

I wish that answer was easy. I have been delaying so many of my stories. Obon is the Japanese version of ‘Halloween’. I’ve been to an Obon festival hosted by the Japanese association here in Charlotte. The problem is that my story takes place on western Halloween. Obon takes place in the summer. It’s a very complex story. The best I can do is research and try my best to make amends.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Manhwa for Americans

Published October 23, 2011 by ladyserenity92

Last name first, First name last!

Comics(graphic novels) are recession-proof.

As South Korea becomes more open toward the US, Americans are getting a ‘taste’ of Korean Manhwa.

Koreans are the top consumers of graphic novels.

Manhwa is slowly catching on as Japanese manga and anime are on the decline.

On rare occasions, manhwa and manga art can be combined together to make a fairly new genre.

Graphic designers can be as creative in experimenting many art forms for their art.

Korean anime is also creeping back on shop selves like ‘Doggie Poo’ and ‘My Girl Mai’.

Christian-themed anime and comics are not as rare in South Korea, but are ‘sleepers’.

South Korean Christians outnumbering Buddhist and others non-Christians might be one of the reasons why Christian-comics are hard to sell.

“Saint Marie”  by Korean-Catholic Yang Yeo-Jin and Choi Kyung-ah’s ‘Snow Drop’ were one of top sellers in the Christain-themed Korean market.

The books overseas never sold and went out of print after the comic-boom ended in the late decade of 2009.

It’s not clear how will South Korean Manhwa will be picked up.

Only time will tell if Americans and Korean-Americans will fully embrace Korean Manhwa with their graphic novel collection.

On their bookshelves or eReaders.

Technique

Published October 22, 2011 by ladyserenity92

If you want to learn a technique that will skyrocket your website search engine ranking straight to the top, here’s one thing that will make you popular…

Just be you.

That’s all.

Jealous people hate you because they don’t know you.

And jealous people only like you when you bleed.

That what haters want you to succeed in. Your demise.

How I wished Jamey Rodemeyer would live to see his victory.

Although he was gay, he had a cheerleading mod of girls that loved him for his spirit.

Before  Jamey  hanged himself, he left a message to the world on the IGBP website(It Gets Better.)

The world gets better everyday; don’t let those bullies defeat you.

I’ve never met Jamey, but I’ve heard good things about him.

Jamey’s gone; but his message lives on the website.

I have a message for Jamey’s bullies: Your hell is just the beginning. You will know what you did for killing Jamey. Murderers never sleep. The only sleep they’ll pray for is death.

Thanks to my blog, Jamey can rest now!

14-years old. Such a waste.

Go for broke.

Thanks to Dan Savage for giving me ‘extra’ help for Halloween.
