Last year i posted a story on mixital. it was about Jon Pertwee teaching at Coal Hill School. I finally uploaded it onto this site. Read it there ------> Getting the best of all worlds
Holy Moses! It's now July! The year has gone fast. Semester at uni is over. Hopefully grades will be ok. The latest series of Doctor Who is finished too. It was a good series. I liked the Monks trilogy the most. Extremis was superb! Also was happy to see the return of Alpha Centauri <3 <3 <3 If you like Alpha Centauri too then check out some of my fan fiction that features Alpha! Link
Life has been interesting. Today I went to Muriwai. I think I may have posted pictures from there before (back in 2014). There is a gannet colony. They're cool birds that migrate between New Zealand and Australia. Amazing achievement. Last night Dame Jane Goodall did a talk here in Auckland. She was incredible! Funny, thought-provoking and a wonderful human being. Also went to Eden Park last month to watch the Blues defeat the British and Irish Lions.
and a reminder now that my twitter is now @kereru_kade :)
I haven't posted since October. Wow! Time flies. Sorry 'bout that. Been busy. So semester ended last year. Did exam, then worked a lot in a shop over the summer. Then the new semester starts, still working four days a week and trying to keep up with four post-grad papers. It's crazy! Haven't had much time to watch Doctor Who or worship the holy recipe book. Let's see if I can describe how life has been in the last half year.
Grades for last semster were B+, B+, A- & A. Ima happy with that. The day after my only exam there was a wrestling show here featuring some stars of New Japan and ROH. I got to meet Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks and Dalton Castle!!!!!! Incredible. Best match was Omega/Bucks V Okada/RPG Vice. Then came work. Lotsa shifts over christmas, then understaffed in the New Year meant too many shifts :( But I still had time to have great adventures with friends. Went to several different waterfalls. Hunua Falls were pretty cool. And great times at the beach.
Also had time to go to a cricket match. New Zealand V Australia. NZ's batting was ok. A satisfactory total, but shouldn't have been good enough. But then we took lots of Aussie wickets. So it looked like the heroic NZers were going to win. But then Stoinis the Aussie batting magnificently, and got the convicts so close to victory. But fortunately NZ was able to get the win :D
Then uni restarted. Assignments assignments assignments. The worst of it is over, i think. Just three weeks to go. Workload over the next three weeks isn't too intense. And we got a new staff member at work so will be having less hours there.
And you may have noticed @SabalomG isn't tweeting on twitter anymore. I've switched to @kereru_kade and made it more sciencey. Anyway, here's some pics from the last few months:
It's been a while since my last post. Saw it and noticed that i mentioned writing a mediocre literature review thing for one of my papers. It got 70%!! So it wasn't too bad. Well below class average, but at least it's a B! The semester is over, and am busy studying for one exam. And last week I got to meet some cool people!
On Friday the All Blacks did a signing session here in Auckland. I got there nice and early to get a good spot in the line. Unfortunately they were operating a system where people who had bought something from that particular shop got a card which put them in a special line that went first. So I was standing there in a line that wasn't moving for most of the time :( Fortunately, the people running the signing decided that those of us who had been waiting in the non-special line had been waiting the whole time so they let us through too. The All Blacks signing were Kieran Read (captain, 2013 world rugby player of the year and two time Rugby World Cup winner), Israel Dagg (Rugby World Cup winner) and Malakai Fekitoa (in the squad that won the rugby world cup in 2015). Here's a photo of the signatures from Read and Dagg:
and that's not all. On the weekend the big geek event of the year happened in Auckland (Armageddon). I went along on Saturday. Christopher Lloyd (Doc Emmett Brown) was there. He was late to his photo session so everybody was standing in line for half an hour before he turned up. But it was worth it. I got to shake his hand. Twice! He said "thanks for coming." I wished him a happy birthday but i don't think he heard me. Then I went and lined up for a photo with James and Oliver Phelps, who are better known as the Weasley Twins!!! They were friendly. Next up was Brutus the Barber Beefcake. He even brought along those shears for the photo. So I have a cool photo where I'm partly holding that! I think I shook his hand too. I got his autograph later in the day.
After that, it was a bit of a break, then I got a photo with Karen Fukuhara who played Katana in Suicide Squad. She looks so different without that mask. She was friendly too. At one of the stalls was Bad Luck Fale (the Underboss) who was promoting a wrestling show that's happening in Auckland in November. Just google sakura events to find out about it!! I got a photo and his autograph too. He was friendly too, and he even did the too sweet finger-sign!! I also got a signature from Nichelle Nichols, who was Uhura in Star Trek. She was lovely. She said I had a wonderful name.
All in all it was a fantastic couple of days!
Another weekend is over :( Another day working in a shop. One customer spoke like a young Frank Spencer. Another tried to put a can of bourbon in his pants. Colleague caught him and kicked him out of the shop. Not literally kicked him, just metaphorically. Another intense week of uni coming up. Gotta finish a review this week. It's to do with reproductive competition in primates. I thought I'd struggle with it, but I've made good progress. I'll easily reach the word limit. It may be shit, but at least it won't be shit AND short.
Oh, and this evening I wrote a short story. It features Alpha Centauri! She's now the President of the Galactic Federation. Wow! The Federation is under attack. Here's the link!
Hello sexy people! Hello to all the unsexy people too. I wrote another story!! It's called Songbird and it features Garr. I hope you like it
A couple of weeks ago WWE did a show in New Zealand!! Brock didn't come, but I thought it was ok to use Suplex City as the title of this post anyway. Here's how I described the evening on the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book Discussion Forum:
"It began with Apollo Crews defeating Sheamus in an ok match. The crowd chanted you look stupid. Sheamus said New Zealand (said he didn't come all the way to NZ to get insulted) so we cheered that. Then Strowman took on one of the Usos. Meh. New Day then took on Gallows and Anderson. It was Kofi and Xavier. I was sad, as i wanted to hear Big E say oooooooooh Auckland...... . but then, in hte middle of the match oooooooooooooooooh Auckland rang out, and Big E was on the entrance ramp. It distracted Anderson, which got the New Day the victory!! Big E couldn't climb the steps, so must be still suffering from ringpostitis. But still good of him to come down to NZ.
Jericho was next. I completely marked out when i heard his music. Everybody did. He cut a wonderful heel promo. But then Finn appeared, and we cheered him too. These two put on a great match. Crowd chanted this is awesome. It really was awesome. Rusev V Titus was a nothing match. Then we had Cena V AJ Styles. I bought a P1 shirt! Both got a great welcome. Crowd was split, but more went for Cena. Everybody was excited to see him. He's the biggest name, and even those that don't like him are excited to see him wrestle. What a change from a few years ago with the you can't wrestle chants and the supposed five moves of doom. These two put on the match of the night. Probably the best match I've seen live. There was another this is awesome chant. Lil' Naitch' was reffing and got knocked down, so the rest of the Club came out and attacked, but Cena got the victory.
Sasha defended her title against Charlotte. Everybody was woo-ing. My friend didn't know where the woo came from It was an ok match. I guess Y2J/Balor and Cena/Styles went on too long so it took time away from this match. Same with the next one - Kevin Owens V Sami Zayn. These two matches could have torn the house down but they didn't have enough time. Zayn and Owens still went pretty good. Rollins V Reigns was the main event, and it went better than i thought it did. crowd chanted this is awesome again, but that was an exaggeration. It was good, but not good enough for a chant.
All in all, a fantastic evening! Really enjoyed it."
In further NZ wrestling news, New Japan are doing a show here in November, and NXT are here in December.
And Doctor Who news? what is there to report? The new series is still half a year away. The Jon Pertwee thread on gallibase is pretty quiet. I dunno. I did another short story - Don't Stop Believin'. And here are some photos from the WWE live event:
Sorry for not posting for ages, though y'all probably didn't even notice. Maybe you were happy that I stopped posting my drivel. But I've written another story. Curse of the Piwakawaka.
Piwakawaka is the te reo Maori name for fantail. It's also a lot of fun to say. So I had to incorporate it into a title. What else has Comrade Kaled been up to? Not much. Survived another semester of university (good~ish grades, so can't complain). Went to watch the All Blacks beat Wales last month too. Here's a picture from that glorious evening. It's of All Blacks winger Waisake Naholo scoring a try
If you are after more crazy fan-fiction, then I recommend that you head over to the fiction section of the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book Discussion Forum. In it, popular prevert Ribs has written a few stellar stories over the last couple of months
Sorry for not posting much lately. I've decided to do a photo of my rather small pop vinyls collection. It includes C3PO, Rey, Obi Wan and BB-8 from Star Wars, River Song and a Weeping Angel from Doctor Who, and Ric Flair the greatest pro wrestler of all time. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Missy is not an example of transphobia.
Thank you :)
This year is going quickly. Since last posting, I've only done one story: The Short Story Featuring Admiral Ackbar. It's been available on gallifrey base for a couple of weeks, as well as this site if you had tried looking for it, but now I'm mentioning it so you definitely know it exists. Also, if you find the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book thread on gallifrey base you can see a picture of Suthers' shit on a plate. The Mad Astronomer gave it a fancy title but don't be fooled! Interestingly, Suthers the Astronomer has featured in some short stories on here. The Evil Astronomer was his first appearance, and he returned in the Evil Astronomer Returns. Both are part of the Super Sleuth series.
In Auckland we have a few cool nature areas. One is called Shakespear. It's a regional park less than an hour north of the city. In it you can see Kereru, which are our native wood pigeons. They're cool. Here's a picture I took of one of these brilliant birds
I've begun this posting with a pretty picture. It's a waterfall!! It's here in Auckland, in a place called Karekare. Now in this update I've uploaded a few stories. They were previously available over on the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book Discussion Forum but now I've uploaded them here for those of you who don't frequent that site. My favourite one is Heart, which features Sabalom Glitz and Mel Bush trying to save the Earth from Space Stalin. You may have noticed that former WWE wrestler Chris Benoit featured in the Funeral. Now, Broken Faith resolves his storyline. Don't Look Back in Anger features the fate of Jimmy Savile, whilst Aussie Eggs is a Sexy Voord short story which introduces us to Virat who is her new assistant.
And what about the exciting Doctor Who news? Chris Chibnall will take over from Steven Moffat as the executive producer. I liked Ste-Mo's reign, but it will be interesting to see a new take on the show. I really enjoyed Dinosaurs on a Spaceship so I have high hopes for this new era. If you like dinosaurs too, check out All Black Dinosaur - it features a dinosaur playing rugby!
The year is almost over :( But the good news is that another year is about to commence. Awesome!! We get another year!! We're so lucky.
I've written two more stories. You may have seen them on the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book Discussion Forum. If you've never been to that site you should. It's full of stuff which are totes amazeballs. Regan the Elephant takes place in one of Barbara's history classes. Hope y'all are ok with a bit of Aotearoa history. And Mein Kampf is a short piece about Adolf Hitler. If you enjoy these stories, feel free to browse the rest of my fan fiction - just click HERE. And a blog post wouldn't be complete without a beautiful New Zealand photograph or two. Happy New Year :)
I've written two new stories. The first is Bang Bang. You may have read it on the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book Discussion Forum. It's a short tale, and it guest stars Nick Briggs. The other story is The Streak, and is ideal for anyone who likes pro wrestling. It may even be suitable for those who don't like wrestling. Best to read it to find out. Or not. It's probably terrible.
My previous blog post mentioned that Mr Capaldi was doing a talk here in Auckland. It was awesome! He was funny, sincere and brilliant. It concluded with Peter reading an extended version of his jawdropping speech from the Zygon Invasion.
I wrote a new story. It's called There's an App For That. It features the War Doctor (and a small portion of the Time War) as well as the Tenth Doctor!!! It's Amazing! Additionally if you pop into The Official Word you can see that Paul Cornell has further validated our claims that the Jon Pertwee Recipe Book is canon!
And tonight, the current Dr Who Peter Capaldi will do a talk here in Auckland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jonah Lomu, one of the finest rugby players of all time (and by all accounts a great human too) has passed away :( :( :( :(
Last month I wrote a thrilling adventure about Meat Stack (for someone reason he's also called Colony Sarff) getting killed by Ronda Rousey. It's available here Meat Stack Explores the TARDIS.
Well this evening, I wrote a sequel to it. It's called the Funeral. It explains a few things within the Whoniverse. I hope you enjoy it.
I haven't transferred the original Rousey story onto here yet, but if you have an account on Gallifrey Base you can read it http://gallifreybase.com/forum/showthread.php?t=218422
Anything else happen recently? The All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup!! They kicked ass! The Wallabies (especially Kepu) were constantly using grubby cheap shots and were forever infringing at the breakdown, but at the end of the day their arms were just too short to BOX WITH GOD!
When they came back, there was a big welcome home. I had no exams that day and some time before the next one, so I decided to go along to clap and just show appreciation. I arrived a couple of hours early to get a decent view, so standing in the same spot for several hours hurt my legs, but it was worth it to see the champions return home and metaphorically say thank you for representing our country so magnificently. And if you watch WWE Raw this week, you may have heard JBL compare Seth Rollins to Richie McCaw (just before the main event) in that he leads the greatest team on earth. Richie is the All Blacks captain. That's him speaking in the third photo. He's so brilliant even the WWE recognises him.
And what else? A couple of weeks ago there was the big New Zealand pop culture convention (Armageddon). I guess its similar to comicon. I met Richard Franklin (Captain Yates), Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) and Jake the Snake Roberts. There was live wrestling there too, and I think Bushwhacker Luke was watching it as well.
