I actually enjoyed your poem this week Blippy. I could actually understand it without the translation too, which probably makes a difference in how you perceive it.
I might write a poem in Dutch some time.

Jan 29, 2012Black and white he sees the worldPosted in: Personal Writing
One is evil, one is good
Inside his apartment building
Everything is understood
Rose-coloured glasses they don everyday
All is pretty much the same
Bright and gay they walk the streets
Where everybody has a name
She shows me photographs in sepia
Love is where it ought to be
Nostalgic and romantic
Where life does not go on for me
And I too often drown myself
In a thousand different colours
I seem to think it is a good idea
To see just how I want to see
And so I do not know
If it is for me to say
That I'm afraid you see the world
In simply black and grey
Jan 11, 2012I can't help reading Allergies to myself in a bitter, raspy voicePosted in: Personal Writing
I had a really hard time choosing, but went with Birdshot and The Question to the Answer in the end. I didn't like the former at first and I think it could have used some improvement in outline, but it grew on me. The flow of the latter just felt really right.
Cypher, The Construction of Our Lady and Allergies were all good as well and all deserve an honourable mention as far as I'm concerned.
I enjoyed Mood Ring. A tribute to John Cage was clever, but it's not the kind of thing I vote for, personally. I respect it from an art perspective, but I don't think it's poetry in the literary sense.
Jan 10, 2012Yanni; Unless it's some well-concealed metaphor, I'd say it's about a book burning. The "book" referred to in the first line might be the Bible, as it might be the only book spared. The last three lines seem to imply it's kind of a universal book burning where literally all sorts of books are being burned (except for maybe the Bible), just for the sake of burning stuff.Posted in: Personal Writing
Jan 9, 2012Ah damnit, I had totally not realized another week had gone by?Posted in: Personal Writing
I'll just put down here that I really liked Zelderex' Hellions, with honourable mentions to Dams do not last forever and Strings. Sanitizer and A citrusy fluid weren't bad either. Lots of good ones this week.
I really liked the feeling of Hellions, and it also had the ind of pace I can really appreciate now and then. The first stanza got me.
Jan 1, 2012From the first stanza, I knew that Hilltop was about. The last line confirmed it, but also kinda killed it for me. I've made that kind of mistake myself before, more than once, and I usually need someone else to point it out to me.Posted in: Personal Writing
Overall I think this was kind of a weak week. Meh.
Dec 27, 2011The only little sparrow in a flock of thousands morePosted in: Personal Writing
Not lonely, but the only one
that knows the fight is not yet won
The only little bird that knows
how it feels in the belows
The only one that in its short life in the skies
has ever paid the prize
of looking down
Dec 27, 2011If you look at all the legendary dragons, you got the Elder Dragons, the Primevals, the Bladewings, the Kamigawa spirit dragons (which were all pretty neutral), Niv-Mizzet (I wouldn't call him good), the Planar Chaos Primevals (no storyline relevance), Scion of the Ur-Dragon (same; probably not really a personality), Karrthus and Malfegor (both "evil"), and finally.. Skittles.Posted in: Speculation
So.. yeah. Niv-Mizzet and the Kamigawa ones are the only ones who aren't really evil or chaotic I guess. Still just neutral.
Dec 26, 2011Yea, I know Arcades Sabboth once saved the world from Nicol Bolas in a fan-made spin-off webcomic, so he was kinda "good" there, but I don't think he was a nice person in the canon.Posted in: Speculation
By the way, Yosei was a "good" dragon in the story. I think he was actually kinda neutral, but he did fight against the other spirits after being summoned by Konda, which I don't actually know if that's a good thing. Also Konda was actually kinda evil, or well maybe not truly evil but at least he was the bad guy.. so yeah you figure it out.

As I just said.Quote from coffIt was my understanding that Crucius the Mad from Alara was a Sphinx PW.
Can you elaborate, because I have no idea what you're trying to say.Quote from TyphronShe wasn't. The Alara planeswalkers were...well, the Alara planeswalkers. Characters like Crucius drove home that planeswalkers were/are beings that can travel between planes freely.
Crucius is a male Sphinx from Alara, and he's a planeswalker. It says so in Test of Metal.
Dec 25, 2011I think "most non-evil, I think" is probably the best description, as we don't really know anything about his personality or motives, right? But isn't he also confirmed to be very dead?Posted in: Speculation
On both, correct me if I'm wrong.

Also concerning all the other people talking about dwarves, I'm thinking they don't really want to bring dwarves back to MtG to keep the flavour different from D&D. Goblins kinda hold the spot of the red tribe in MtG. But in D&D, they need a lot of different "good" races because they're the heroes..
Damn I'm just realizing that might be why we haven't seen Viashino in a while either (Then again they did bring "halflings" to MtG, blegh)
Well as I said, flavour is different. I like MtG dwarves though. We'll see if they ever some back.
There is one, just not a card. His name is Crucius the Mad and he "appears" in Test of Metal.
I think most dragons in MtG are evil or just chaotic. Maybe not Arcades Sabboth? But I honestly don't remember the Elder-Dragon story.
Dec 22, 2011I've been sitting here alonePosted in: Personal Writing
sometimes in company
sometimes a cup of coffee
sometimes a cup of tea
I've been sitting here all day
all afternoon, so far
without a cigarette
not even a cigar
I'm writing this, I know
I'm doing something, sure
I'm reading and I'm listening
and I'm thinking something more
and now it's gone
my mind so empty
the images flowing
throughout it all
the blood red leaves
of the Japanese maple
the soft brown coffee
the pitch blackbird
the sickly greens
and softer yellows
a small blue tit
a pinkish jay
I've been looking at these books
at the covers, that is
my pinkie's asleep
there is something I missed
There is something I should do
should be doing all along
and now I know what it is
Now I know what's been wrong
and then it's gone
from reality right now
from reality today
the withering hortensias
I shiver as I hear
a giraffe in the corner
a breathing in my ear
the unlit candle
the undrawn curtains
the windows away
And then I realize that the day is almost gone
Tomorrow I can try again and maybe, just maybe..
get something done

Jun 23, 2009I have always thought "Iris" to be one of the most beautiful names there is.Posted in: Zaph Blog
I always thought that if I would ever have a daughter, I'd name her Iris, and this isn't stopping me.. I just wish that if that happens, both girls could one day meet each other.. in this world that is...
Jun 23, 2009It's something in her brain, that's the stupid thing.Posted in: Zaph Blog
Something she apparently had from her birth and snapped last weekend.
She didn't pass her exams yet, she had to resit one.
Maybe the stress did it.
Maybe if she had passed her exams in one stroke..
I haven't given up yet.. I'm still praying and others with me...
Dec 16, 2008Haha, I'm not really a hygiene freak myself (although I have periods in which I decide to brush my teeth more often because the dentists say one should do so, and then I gradually start doing it less and less again.. I just realized that has recently happened so I should start again. Also my dentist isn't hot.. or female for that matter. (There I go with my stories in parenthesis again)), I'm just a person that has random thoughts or theories now and then and decided to write it down for once. I have these silly things going on in my head more often but never wrote it down beforePosted in: Zaph Blog
I think I'll do it more often and see if people like it
Sep 4, 2008Well, not much people know or realize it. It's that I'm not like "Hi I'm Floris and I'm not shaking hands 'cause I'm probably allergic to you" when I introduce myself. Overall, it isn't considered to be that interesting.Posted in: Zaph Blog
But a friend called me Mr. Allergic or something once..
Sep 3, 2008I haven't Unfortunately I don't know anybody who has.Posted in: Zaph Blog
This whole thing went through my "allergy-specialist" (it's called an "allergoloog" in Dutch, which could be loosely translated to "alergylogist"), the things she told me about it must've come from experiences with previous patients.
It's not like it's a whole new thing though, it's been there for some time and it's not some dubious alternative medicine thing, so don't worry
May 7, 2008Whoa, it's so hot to see all of those togetherPosted in: spiderboy4 Blog
Well, I'm also going to use this opportunity to tell you I'm really glad to run the shop with you
Hmm.. maybe I should post something in my blog too someday...
