Why I support Charlton Athletic

Charlton Athletic

I like to propose a toast with my glass of J2O to my team, Charlton Athletic Football Club, who were founded 110 years ago on this very day.

When it comes to answering questions you would think that my most asked question would revolve around my autism and how I cope, etc, etc. However, my most asked question, since I was young has actually been, “why do you support Charlton?”

People are often baffled by the fact that I support Charlton, as I live in the North of England and Charlton is a London based club.

As it’s one of my most asked questions I will take this opportunity to explain why I support them. =)

*

I started off as a Manchester United supporter. My reason for supporting Man Utd is rather silly but true. Back then, my Dad had big curly hair, the exact replica of Bryan May. I thought wild bushy hair was masculine and cool. At that time I came across a player called Karel Poborsky, he’s a Czech Republican international who played for Manchester United. It was at that moment that I became a Man Utd supporter… all because of Karel Poborsky and his hair. XD

Inevitably, I stopped supporting the Red Devils as soon as Poborsky left them. Haha.

For a good while I never had an interest in any particular club but one name did stand out, “Charlton Athletic.” I first learned that name in my brother’s Subbuteo set. For some reason, I was really taken by that name. I remember seeing them on the Gillette Soccer Saturday updates when they lost to Ipswich and I was surprisingly disappointed. I didn’t know how but I memorised the badge, the name, and the kit colour.

The Play-Offs Semi-Finals were on and Charlton managed to win their match and progressed to the Play-Offs Final. I found myself beaming that they won their match, but it never really registered why. All of my strange feelings and affection towards Charlton came to fruition when they played against Sunderland in the Play-Offs Final 1998.

During that match I found myself cheering for Charlton all the way. I would cry and run upstairs to my room every time Sunderland scored and would run back down if Charlton equalised. I cheered for Charlton much louder than I ever did for Man Utd. They were genuine and honest cheers too. I cheered loudest when Sasa Ilic saved that Penalty from that Penalty Shoot-out.

It was at that moment that I realised that I was a Charlton supporter.

*

I suppose I haven’t really answered my own question. Why do I support Charlton? I’m not sure why, I just do. However, when I had my epiphany and discovered the Charlton fan in myself I learned that my Mum supported Charlton, my Uncle supported Charlton and my Granddad supported Charlton. So, if I were to give an answer I would say that it’s in the family blood. =)

One of the best moments of my life did involve Charlton Athletic as I was actually their mascot in one of their away games. Their company as a whole is friendly and I can vouch for their greatness as I have been involved with their players and staff personally, if only for a brief spell. I was slightly gutted that I never got to meet Alan Curbishley and Clive Mendonca, but I was still pleased that I got to meet all the players and staff like Chrissy Powell, Keith Peacock and Mark Kinsella.

Being a Charlton mascot was definitely a supreme moment and it’s a moment that will never go away. =D

There’s no doubt in my mind that I will still get asked this question time and time again, but I don’t mind as the answer is daft but humorous. =)

Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma Episode Nine Thoughts

Erina Endcard

I really do like Hinako, she’s very cute. Even though she has a fearsome reputation she acts very relaxed and sweet. I do think her moral dropped after Soma took away her Kaki-no-Tane. It was all for a good cause though as he served her that very same tea snack as part of a dish. I can’t describe it but he sort of coated the fish with the Kaki-no-Tane chips. I also really like the fact how Hinako is voiced by Mamiko Noto. I just know when a character is being voiced by Mamiko as she has that distinctive voice about her. I get drawn into her voice and characters every time. =)

Hinako summed up Soma perfectly in that he’s very creative despite time running against him. She looked pretty as a mermaid but I did crack up laughing when the man behind her had a meat-type head. I’m not really sure how else to describe it except that I thought it was funny. XD

I unexpectedly started to like Takumi in this episode. I pictured him to be an arrogant lad but I think he’s probably more awkward then arrogant. It was especially funny when he made that dramatic speech about next time he sees Soma it will be in a Shokugeki battle… only to find out that they would sit next to each other on the bus!  I guess all the long he just needed a rival and a friend who he can relate with. One thing for sure, Takumi and Soma will definitely respect each other from now on.

It looks like everyone in the Polar Star gang managed to survive by one day… for now. Now all the students have to serve 50 servings each to the muscular athletes. I felt sorry for Yuuki as she was looking forward to relax but now she can’t. The way she mellowed in despair was pretty funny to watch. It does seem rather unfair on all the students that they have to prepare all those dishes straightaway when they came back from a stern test. It’s amazing how quickly Soma prepared those 50 dishes. I hope Ikumi and Megumi and the rest of the Polar Star Gang manage to make those 50 dishes just in time.

Soma and Erina humming to the ending song was pretty fun to watch. Soma’s humming and dancing was really funny watch whilst Erina’s humming was relaxing to watch. I didn’t think they would bump into each other any time soon. I wonder what’s going to happen next. I’d imagine Erina is just going to give Soma a lot of verbal abuse. Haha.

FA Cup Trophy

It’s the FA Cup Final today and I’m really looking forward to it. As I understand it if Villa win the cup, they play in the Europa League next season, if Arsenal win, Southampton play in the Europa League next season.

Either way I do feel sorry for the English teams who play in the Europa League as it must be gruelling for them to play on a Thursday and a Sunday. Look what happened to Everton. They finished at the bottom half of the table. I get the feeling that the same could happen with Southampton. They had a fantastic season last season but if they play in the Europa League next season then I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t do as well as they did this season. Having said all that, they played above expectations this season and just ran out of steam near the end. I’m very pleased for them. =)

Anyway- my FA Cup prediction.

It’s going to be Arsenal 3-1 Aston Villa. I think Arsenal will just nudge Villa out but I don’t think they’ll keep a clean sheet. Let the fun times roll. =)

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Five Thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

First things first, congratulations to Chelsea on being the Champions of the Premier League. I think it was very well deserved. Now, back on the subject at hand.

The beginning was hilarious and cute when Hestia was crying, to the point when she was causing a flood on the table. Haha. It looks like she and Miach are on friendly terms. I wonder if this connection between Hestia and Miach is the reason that Bell was able to speak to Miach, another God, on friendly terms. She certainly made it no secret that she likes Bell. Good for her. I do fear for Bell though as there are going to be plenty of females gunning to be his girlfriend.

How nice, Hestia managed to get a date with Bell, and it was Bell who initiated it no less. He’s earned enough cash to take Hestia out to dinner. That plan was somewhat thwarted when Hestia’s fellow goddesses followed her to check out her “new man.” Haha. I really did enjoy Hestia and Bell running and hiding from Hestia’s friends. It was like watching a whimsical slapstick comedy. It all ended on a rather romantic note when Hestia and Bell stopped at the top floor of some building and looked out to the night and lights. They didn’t get to eat out at lunch but I still think it was cute as they spent time together.

Demeter is rather dashing. I almost mistook her for Freya. It was pretty funny how Demeter and co literally knocked Hestia out of the way to get to Bell. They were all treating him like a little puppy. I bet Hestia wished she wouldn’t have said anything to her friends now. She actually looks nice with her hair down but I still think she’s most charming with pigtails.

That weird pink breath that Hestia and Bell exhaled was rather unique.

I did raise my eyebrows in suspicion when Bell was reading that book. It was like he was talking to his subconscious or was talking to an evil person that took shape of him. I felt like this book had its own personality and it was trying to manipulate Bell. It was as if Bell was reading a Dark Art’s Magic book. It turns out, it was a Grimoire and once he read it, the book became useless. Whoops! Silly Bell. However, this did him good as he learnt a new move which required no chant. Firebolt. I do think he partially learned this when Lili fired her own fire beam towards that little bunny, saving Bell.

It was pretty humorous when Bell went into the dungeon and started to shoot Firebolts from his hands to the monsters. He literally just shot it one after the other to the point where he passed out. Haha. Hurray, Aiz made her appearance with Riveria, but this time she spoke. By the way Aiz and Riveria described Bell as a “kid” makes me think that they are both older than 20. It seems like most anime characters are considered “kids” if they are under the age of 20.

So, Aiz wanted to make it up to Bell, and that came in the form of the head-lap pillow. That’s quite possibly the sweetest atonement I have ever seen. It seems like Aiz healed his exhaustion too. I think I saw her blush a little. Oh my. The funniest moment came when Bell realised who she was and literally rolled forward away from her. I wonder if he did that all the way to the dungeon entrance. That would be pretty darn funny if he did. XD

Bell really wasted his opportunity there. He could have got into a conversation with his hero but instead rolled away. XD

I learned as well that those of the Soma Familiar don’t actually worship their god, but worship the wine. It still doesn’t explain why they’re money grabbers though. Is it so that they can continue to produce top quality wine? I still don’t really know why those guys are materialistic but I was correct with my previous assumption that Lili wouldn’t keep her money. It really did seem like her fellow comrades took the money from her by force. That really is a shame but hopefully we’ll get more questions answered in the next episode.

I was happy when Aiz made an appearance but I was equally as happy when Syr made a small cameo as well. Bell admitted that she was cute, which was nice, but he also admitted that her cuteness wouldn’t work as a trick. Haha. Still, I don’t think Syr would mind too much, being called cute by a guy she likes must be rewarding. 😉

Hestisa, Bell and Aiz

Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma Episode Three Thoughts

Food Wars Shokugeki no Soma

I really do like Megumi. She is very sweet girl who lacks a lot of confidence and self-esteem. She went to the Tootsuki Culinary Academy to make her family proud only to end up failing upon her first exam. Haha. Her shocked expressions are cute and endearing. I’m just really pleased that she was able to pass Roland Chapelle’s test along with Soma.

I’m impressed with how quickly Soma adapts to the situation. Some of the current students appear to be out to get him. All except for Megumi, who until now, has simply just been trying to avoid him rather than degrade him. However, Soma didn’t feel sorry for himself he just got on with it. It turns out that his additional recipe, the honey, made that beef extra delicious. Megumi’s extravagant visualisation was quite… funny. I kind of knew at that point that she was going to be covered in honey. I didn’t anticipate that there were going to be little Somas, disguised as bees, pouring honey on her. Haha.

Those mean students eventually got their come-uppance. I’m really pleased about that. It makes Soma and Megumi’s victory that much sweeter. The best part of all is that Soma didn’t retaliate or care about the other students who tried to mess with his cooking. All he cared about was his own dish and working together with Megumi. I think that’s a very good attitude to have.

Soma is still showing his crazy quirks by force feeding Megumi squids glazed in honey… it reminds me of that line General Melchett spoke in the last episode of Blackadder Goes Forth.[1] Haha. Poor, poor Megumi… mind you, it might be naïve of me to feel sorry for her. She probably secretly liked it, just like Mayumi did when Soma force fed her that weird girl. Haha.

I think Erina is being somewhat in denial. I think she secretly likes Soma’s cooking but her pride is preventing her from being true to her own feelings. Her resentment towards Soma is probably going to grow deeper for the next couple of episodes. The sheer name of him makes her go bananas, and in a most humorous way. Haha. Soma doesn’t appear to care about being disliked or resented. Either that or he’s too much of a scatterbrain to even notice. Haha.

I don’t think Soma will take Erina’s spot as the number one chef at the academy just yet. He still has a long way to go and he probably needs to overcome many odds before that happens.

I wonder what Erina’s grandfather’s relationship is with Soma. Do they have a link that we don’t know about yet? It seems that he is the only one who is behind Soma being at this academy. I think that’s really cool as he clearly doesn’t care about Soma’s status in life. Being lowbrow or highbrow is completely irrelevant as long as the student can cook delicious food, and Soma has proven that. Soma’s dad is quite famous so perhaps Erina’s granddad knows him personally? Thus, that is why he is lenient with Soma and giving him a chance when everyone else isn’t.

I felt that this episode ended much too fast… that’s how much I enjoyed this episode. =)

FA Cup Trophy

I started watching Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches episode one not so long ago. I think its ok so far and there were some humorous moments in it and I will probably watch more. I don’t have any particular enthusiasm to write a separate blog about episode one so I just thought I’d mention it here. =)

Monster Musume Volume 6 came at my house last night. I’ve not had the chance to read any of it yet as I’ve had a busy day watching The Premier League games and the FA Cup Semi-Final between Arsenal and Reading. I feel sorry for Federeci for letting in the goal like that. He looked completely devastated and hopefully it won’t become a stigma in years to come.

I knew Arsenal would beat Reading and reach the final, but who will join them? Will it be Liverpool or Aston Villa? I think Villa are going to give it a real good goal but will come up short. I think the score will be 2-1 to Liverpool.

Thanks for Reading. =)

The Acting World: Autobiography Play (Part Two)

cropped-ryans-world-border-2.jpg

  1. DECISION

Right! I’m now going to do this Autobio play starring as myself, but… what on earth do I do? How do I execute this piece? How do I act it? How do I direct it? What parts of my life are most significant and what might people be interested in? Do I do live or film or a mixture of both?

I discussed the key parts of my life with my co-director Mr P as well as my family. After much discussion we decided that my life before Uni was the way to go. Obviously, people at Uni only knew me as I was then. They had no idea about my life prior to the Uni course.

At that point I had a rough idea how I was going to perform this piece. I decided to make this mostly live theatre but to include multimedia and film. I felt that I could express my thoughts live but portray certain aspects on film. To me that was the most practical and sensible solution. Realistically speaking, I don’t think there was any way I could have done it. Mr Ian came up with great artistic ideas but I needed to do what I was comfortable with. Well… everything I was doing at that point was far from comfortable! Haha.

I decided what scenes I was going to film, what characters to use and who I would ask to play those parts.

With the cast chosen I then had to think about which scenes I would film and which I would perform live.

  1. OVER-ACTING

In the first two weeks I did find it difficult to play my character. I learned that I kept holding back when I was rehearsing so I decided to stop rehearsing altogether, choosing to act and improvise when I was being filmed.

I did this one scene where I was playing with my biro trains and Thomas trains where I would scream and get upset if my brother tried to join in the fun. I think I was ok but I wasn’t natural… I was extremely uncomfortable and I think because of this I started to over-act. It’s not easy when you’re 22 and you’re trying to act as you did when you were 4.

Acting as my younger self playing with my trains was probably the most difficult part of the whole performance. The scene wasn’t really done right. I couldn’t rehearse it as it was a challenge to keep it up. If I was going to do this then I had to do it in one take. My family members watched my scene back and they felt that I wasn’t being natural either. They watched me grow up so they could remember how I acted and behaved.

With much reluctance but being sensible, I decided that I should do this scene again, but in a more natural setting…I chose to do this, for the second time, at my sister’s house.

  1. EPIPHANY

There was a period where my confidence was low. I did start to doubt myself and my capabilities of being able to pull this off. Could I do it? I needed an inspiration from somewhere…

My university is actually based in a college. The correct term of studying that I did was Foundation Degree. Basically, you do two years of university work at a college but you do the final third year at an actual university. The third year is only optional though. I decided to take a look at my local university, with the thought of carrying on the third year, to obtain my full degree. It sounded ideal to me at that time. So, I went along to the open day and spoke to one of the course tutors with my Mum. We explained to her about my individual needs and what my strengths and needs were.

Her reaction to everything that we said was quite peculiar. She pulled a lot of funny faces and she especially made a quirky face when I said that I don’t understand generalisation. From that moment she started to discourage me from the course as she didn’t think I could handle it. There were going to be many social gatherings and she didn’t think that I could adapt enough to meet the course requirements. I was rather speechless at that moment…

I was a bit shocked on how quickly she discouraged me, and even went so far to suggest a writing course as no social interaction was required. Haha… I decided from that moment that I was not going to go on that course as the tutor didn’t seem open-minded and she did not understand people like me. Even if I did join the course I think I would have dropped out because of her. I was unimpressed with her attitude, and to be honest, I was unimpressed with the SLD facilities that that particular university had to offer.

After I spoke about my thoughts to my family and I had the chance for all this to sink in…a fire started to ignite in my stomach. I started to get annoyed that someone would pre-judge me and my capabilities without even getting the time to know me first. There have been people in my life who have doubted my capabilities, and I was always determined to prove those people wrong.

The only people who doubted me were the people who did not know me. They just judged my capabilities through papers, reports and assessments and probably what they’ve researched about autism on the internet. I wasn’t going to let anyone doubt me ever again. I was going to prove to everyone that I shouldn’t limit my capabilities just because of pre-judgement. I especially was going to prove to everyone and to myself that I shouldn’t limit my capabilities just because I’m Autistic.

I was angry. I was determined. I was motivated.

This was the answer. This was the epiphany that I was looking for. The confidence that I had lost came back and it was stronger than ever before.

And now, back to the Performance.

  1. NEW FOUND CONFIDENCE

I asked the National Certificate group to paint me a wall of a mountain that represents my personal journey. Me and Mr P went to their class and explained what we were looking for. At that moment Mrs V turned to me and said, “Are you going to tell everyone about you?” and I was like “oh my…”

I was so focus on proving a point to my doubters and to myself that I completely forgot that I was going to share with everyone about my Autism. Was this going to be a first time? Initially, I was very hesitant. I’ve never openly told this side of me to anyone, only a close group of people. I knew the National Certificates by their faces but I didn’t know any of them personally. How would they react? I took a deep breath and said, “I am autistic.”

I got a positive response. I was asked a lot of questions regarding Autism and how I cope with autism. It really warmed my heart and boosted my confidence. I even got a round of applauds.

It boosted my morale even more and for the first time in my life I wasn’t afraid to say that I have autism. I became much more open about myself and I generally became chattier with people who I didn’t know very well, which used to be an enormous challenge for me.

  1. FILMING THE SCENES

What was initially daunting turned out to be a lot of fun.

The football guys were wonderful to work with. I explained to them what my condition was and how I cope with it. Coincidentally, they were doing a course about bullying so I was actually called into that class to talk about being different. I never thought I would speak about my autism in front a bunch of strangers! And like the National Certificates, I got a positive response.

The football students acted out their parts very well but I must say that Chris, the tutor, was particularly outstanding. His sister has learning difficulties so I think he was able to relate to my problems to some degree.

I decided to include some of my family/family friends in certain film scenes. They were fun to work with.

The scene I did with Nat and Mr Andy was not very loud on film so I went to Mr M, who is a record producer that I know and a good friend. He had a studio so offered to help with the sound on the film. He was kind enough to help me out so I went over to his house and did the over dubbing. What should have taken a few hours took all night. We worked on it from 4 O’clock in the afternoon until 5 O’clock in the morning! It took me 58 goes to get the speech pattern right! Haha! We experienced all kinds of emotions that night but it was definitely an amazing night and one of the best that I’ve experienced. =)

  1. SHOW TIME

There was a lot that I wanted to talk about as this had been a really good experience. I had a lot of fun with many people during the filming. I decided to only talk about significant parts of the rehearsals and filming and how I over-came problems.

Next time, I will share my thoughts with you about going into the performance, during the performance, and after the performance.

Show time!

Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma Episode Two Thoughts

Food Wars Shokugeki no Soma

I could not stop laughing.

Erina either has a very big imagination or she is just plain crazy. Who else would imagine sitting in a hot spring with a silverback? But, apparently that’s what she envisaged as she was eating something “disgusting.” Haha!

It did look like she was having a pleasant experience when she was eating Soma’s rice with special seasoning. She envisaged angels floating down, tickling her bare skin as her palate was literally going through a heavenly experience. These angels had faces of Soma. Really, I think she wanted to say that Soma’s food was “delicious” but she said that it was “disgusting” as her pride was hurt. I’m not sure what hurt her pride the most. Was it that a “common” person was able to dish up something delicious or did she feel that Soma was looking down on her? Either way, he ended up failing… poor Soma. Well, I say poor Soma but I could not stop laughing. XD

Erina’s reaction upon hearing what Soma was cooking was priceless. Soma’s lack of fear towards Erina was very admirable. It’s a good job that he didn’t care for her strong reputation as “God’s Tongue.” The flashback when she was being breast-fed by her Mum when she was a baby had me laughing hard the most. I’ve never known a baby to critique breast-feeding before… hopefully this will be the last time! Haha!

I did feel a little bit sorry for Soma as the other examinee students were looking down on him, seeing him as an outcast. Erina even saw him out of place to some extent as he is not part of the high-class industry. However, Soma came out on top as everyone else fled the venue out of fear for Erina’s reputation. If I was Soma, I would be pretty darn smug by now.

It looks like the elderly gent at the end took a bit of Soma’s food and liked it. Even if Erina has failed him, it looks like he is going to over-ride her decision. A wise choice, I must say, as Erina was not really being impartial. =)

I’m anticipating a love and hate relationship between Soma and Erina, mostly on Erina’s part. Perhaps she is going to be a tsundere and loves Soma’s food but won’t be honest about it. It looks like Soma’s dad is really going places and is now a top chef in a restaurant based in New York. I wonder where Soma’s mum is. Given Soma’s Dad’s speech, I do wonder if she’s no longer around.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Two Thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

This was a great episode. =D This episode focuses on chapters 4 and 5 of the Light Novel.

Freya has finally made her appearance. Well, technically I guess it can be argued that she actually made her debut in episode one but you only see her eyes. She is a beauty but so far she is probably the prettiest anime lady that comes at the top of my dislike list. Haha. XD

I’m slightly gutted that the anime didn’t expand on the full conversation between Freya and Loki from the LN.[1] I really enjoyed their interaction as Aiz is just casually standing behind Loki. It can’t always be helped as sometimes it’s not possible to adapt every little thing that has happened from the original story. Eina’s scenes were omitted as well and I feel that her appearance was quite significant in the original story. However, in the scheme of things, they’re not the most important parts of the story so I can see why Eina’s part was cut from that scene.^^/

However, the scenes that were adapted were the ones that I wanted to see the most. I especially liked the part when Aiz is casually looking down at the crowd and then spotted Bell. They didn’t seem to show what Aiz was thinking, but that’s probably a good thing. It leaves me room to speculate what’s going through her mind, even though I have an idea of what she’s thinking. =D

Loki is funny to watch and is much more eccentric then I originally perceived her. I thought her reactions were funny, particularly when she was left to pay the bill at that dine place. Her squabble with Hestia was just as funny and I can’t decide who came out on top. I would say that it’s a draw as Loki beats Hestia in height and Hestia beats Loki in the bust department. Haha. I thought she was going to be evil with a name like Loki, but I was wrong. It’s just her eyes that look evil. Haha.

Syr is such a lovely girl and was impeccably cute when she was acting innocent in front of Bell. Bell wanted to refuse her lunchbox offer but he just couldn’t say no to her. She also told that Mia lass to forgive Bell. I don’t think Syr made a lunchbox for herself though. I think she actually made it for Bell and Bell alone. I’m glad things ended amicably in the end between Bell and the workers at the Mistress of Abundance. Mia even gave Bell some wisdom advice. I thought that was cool as she was acting like a Mum or Aunt. Something tells me that Bell is going to become a regular customer at that bar. 😉

I was most looking forward to the part where Hestia and Bell join in the festiveness of the MonsterPhillia. I originally pictured the scene being set at night as I assumed that it was going to be like a Japanese type festival. However, I think it was better that it was set in midday. Bell feeding Hestia a crepe was pretty cute, and he certainly went red in the face. Haha. Hestia looked jealous as soon as she learned that Bell is looking for a girl. Her jealous pouts are really cute to watch. It was especially funny when she was slapping his back after she was levelling him up. It was a nice moment when Bell promised her that he was never going to leave her.

It was very sweet of Hestia to go out of her own way and prostrating for days on ends for Bell’s sake. I think that prostrating pose is actually called “Dogeza.” That basically means you kneel down to appeal strongly for a favour or to strongly apologise for something.  If that is the correct term then it makes sense why Hestia was doing that. It seems that Hestia looks up to Hephaistos, and it isn’t because she’s small. Haha.

The ending was a tearjerker. Bell locked her up behind some random bars so they could protect her from that huge ape. If you look at it another way, it can also be a symbolism. That is the symbolism of not being able to do anything as she is trapped.  It’s really cool that Bell is going to take a stand and fight that big ape. It wouldn’t surprise me if that Silverback was stronger than the Minotaur that Bell encountered previously. As Hestia is his family and she’s a damsel in distress he was able to move despite feeling fear.

DanMachi is really good so far and I’m pleased with how it’s been animated. Roll on next week. =)
