New Questions for you!
I’m not going to write new questions or tag people, so I’ll make this post worth reading.

1) Who’s your celebrity crush?
I admire how Leonardo DiCaprio has matured as a person. In more recent films (?), he’s been given extremely suave, gentleman roles. Regardless of his awards (or lack thereof), DiCaprio seems to be humble about it and I love that about him. To me,  it says that you can be great without anyone else’s approval. He looks like a fantastic lover and amazing friend.

2) What’s a fad you jumped on that you wish you hadn’t?
I might lose friendships for this question, but oh well.

As a child, I was lured into Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series. I didn’t start at the very beginning with the NES - throughout my childhood, I played Ocarina of Time > Majora’s Mask > Wind Waker > Twilight Princess. I only ever remember finishing Majora’s Mask & Wind Waker; for the others, I watched my brother play to the ending, or I simply gave up on it.

My friend gave me Phantom Hourglass (DS) and Skyward Sword (Wii) as gifts, but I never even opened the boxes. I wasn’t interested to devote time and sold them back because I needed money for rent. I don’t think I could ever let myself get into another Zelda game because I don’t have the patience to finish their overly hyped game franchise. There, I said it.

3) What’s your favorite season and why?
I like California’s Fall, because Summer is still there, but fades slowly as we transition. Fall can also mean new prime-time television, the start of another school year, for those still studying. With the Fall comes the changing of the leaves; when the lush green turns into an earthy brown. It takes forever for Los Angeles trees to lose their foliage, so we experience Fall from mid-September all the way to early December. It’s nice; not too cold or too hot.

4) What’s something about the opposite sex that you will never understand?
Why is it so hard for you guys to tell me how you feel? You’ll often tell me that some things can’t be explained. All I’d like to understand is where you’re coming from. Some have walked away with unanswered questions. I always want to know, am I someone special, a good friend, or simply a passer-by? If you can tell me what it is and why, I’ll decide to go or stay.

5) What’s the story behind your username?
When I started my first web blog and internet profile, I wanted the username to describe me with my initials. I thought, “Pure (M-word)” would be really cool. At that time, I was into the comic-book based film, Mystery Men (1999). I loved the movie so much and wanted to use it for my own devices. The alias “PureMystery” was like Cinderella’s glass-slipper, it was a perfect fit for me. Over time, the username helped shaped me into the enigma I am today.

6) Are you allergic to anything?
I’m allergic to some of the most delicious foods on the planet: I cannot eat shell-based creatures. This means no Shrimp, no Crab, no Lobster. I can’t walk into the Red Lobster and really enjoy the food that they serve, because if I do, my tongue will get itchy and my throat will swell up like a hot air balloon. I used to eat Shrimp as a child, it was my grandmother’s favorite delicacy. When I had turned 8 years old, we had grilled Shrimps for dinner (among other things) and an hour later I was hurling it all over our couch. That was a sad day for me.

7) Mac or PC?
Mac is extremely popular brand/system and I think it started blooming more so when I was still in high school. I remember there was a group of students who had their own “macbook”/apple-products clique. I thought, “They’re entitled to have laptops, expensive ones at that.” Mind you this is during the early era of macbooks, before they had that sleek silver body. With all of that said, I am a PC person.

8) Best concert you’ve ever been to?
This is a loaded question, I’ve been to a handful of concerts and have stories for each one. I think the BEST concert was the first one I ever attended; ALIVE 2007 - Daft Punk at the Sports Arena. This event was HUGE and much anticipated by me and the friends I went with. It was a massive gathering of people and we stood on the center balcony. I could see everything: Daft Punk’s gigantic pyramid booth, projected screens and ALL of the LED panels that lit up the sweaty dance floor. It was a great experience to dance, sing and get all the energy out of you.

9) What’s your first memory?
Time to dive deep … My earliest memory is in our old Alhambra apartment. I remember sitting with my brothers as Mom made home made clay dough for us to play with. It was very messy and we smeared goo on the glass table. I think Mom was telling us not to eat it because it was just cornstarch and flour. I picture my tiny hands digging into the wet clay.

10) If you could be any anime/television show character who would you be?
Damn, there are so many to choose from. If I were an anime character, I would wanna be Michiko Malandro of “Michiko & Hatchin”. Michiko is a Brazilian BABE (bad ass bitch every day) who escapes prison to find her daughter and long lost baby daddy. Michiko comes close to death a lot throughout that show, but narrowly dodges the scythe each time. She lives a colorful adventure, but at the end of the day wants to have a happy family together as one.

11) What would you consider to be one of your weirdest quirks?
When I listen to music while I walk, I move my arms a lot, because I like to pretend that I’m mixing in a DJ booth or dancing. if you ask me to get down on the dance floor, I won’t get up.

you are noodle..

part of me always will be

Scooby-Doo!: Mystery Incorporated

After finishing that series I kinda question existence altogether.

During the time you were working at Japan Arcade, what was the one thing you liked most about it?

I liked taking care of little things, like design my own marquees, decorate the walls with origami, advertise our twitter account with blue-bird signs. I liked setting things up and saying, “I made that.” My coworkers would often tell people I was in charge of all the signs that go around the place. It made a difference because we’d look at the machines everyday; you’ll be surprised at how putting a little color and effort can go a long way. Thanks for the Question!

would you also draw me If I asked you


Of course

What was the first video game you've ever played?

I had to dive deep into my memories to answer this.

For the longest time, I was always a spectator in my brothers video game activities. I remember watching them play together and with their friends; I’m the youngest in our family, so I didn’t get many opportunities to play with the big boys. I know we went through a few consoles, but I don’t actually remember playing for a long period of time. I’m not even going to count the demo-disc games that my brothers let me try out.

I want to say the first game I got to sit down and play was with my niece. Her dad gave her his Sega Genesis and a few cartridges. She played Sonic the Hedgehog 2 all the time, because the music was cool and it was fast paced. She had the decency to let me be Player 2, AKA Miles. It didn’t feel like I was doing anything, but I contributed to the game and got to play with her.

hope this answers your question. :)

Do you have any crushes?

Hmm. let me answer this in the form of poetry.

I used to have crushes, most of which didn’t end well.
Some boys made me blush like I was under their spell;
A few were very fair and fine, but didn’t fancy me.
Handsome hair and style, seeking another category.
I admire people from great distances indeed,
As you may know, I’m too shy to take the lead.
I’ve fallen for some and dove deeper than need be 
and broke some hearts that reciprocated the feeling.
So to answer your question, Do I have a crush?
I’m not on a quest for one, my affection is hush-hush.

Ask me Anything, I will answer [publicly] with poetry.

Q: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

are YOU getting it? can we be friends & play together?

Glad to see there's a few girls out there playing 3rd strike :}

Thank You for the compliment.

SF3S isn’t the only game I play in the arcade, but I thought I should pick it up because my coworkers and friends treat it like their religion. After awhile I realized that some people refuse to let go, because for them it’s one of the most entertaining titles after all this time. I am nowhere near the best, but I feel the basics are simple enough - know the range of your normals, know how to kara throw; if you can’t parry, block more, etc. I rather not play with the regulars at our arcade in particular, because if you can’t win a round you are nothing to them.

Anyway, Thank You for noticing I play. :)

how do you take a self portrait and not look like yourself? You end up being someone completely different. I’ve been archiving old family photos all day and as soon as I fast forward to the present, I feel I’m looking at another person entirely.
