Making voxels with MagicaVoxel and watching unique animations on YouTube have inspired me to want to make animations in the future. So for this edition of "John's Corner," I want to tell you about my animation ambitions. I will even introduce some of the voxel models I've been developing in recent times. If you want to keep up with my creative work, please visit John's Creative Space.

Welcome to the category that is simply about me talking with all of my readers one-on-one! Welcome to...

Johns Corner
JOHN'S CORNER!





--- John's Corner: Creativity ---

I had the creative bug and decided to take advantage of it. Previously, I was never able to develop anything really interesting, nor did I have the drive to continue making material. I have now created a lot of different assets to hopefully one day utilize my assets in art and video. If not making assets, I am developing them. The end goal is just to make material for you to [hopefully] enjoy. I've been using Qubicle Constructor a lot. These days, I am using MagicaVoxel.

There is a sad story in all of this. It was back in the mid-1990s when I aspired to get into computer animation after seeing one cartoon series long ago. Never have I made a proper 3D model of any kind for going on 20 years. Or at least, never made a 3D model of any kind I wasn't proud of. I am now going on making voxel models, which are easy to make once you get the hang of it and once you master making models despite the limitations of voxel models.

To give you somewhat of an idea of my progress in developing my models, let me share with you this picture:

MagicaVoxel sample
^ from: (my Facebook profile page) - One model, four ways. The base model is on the far left, and the other three models were made using the first model as a base. One animation I may plan to make is based on this school setting I created.

You can see from the picture that I created assets resembling a scene at a secondary school. Note the lockers in the background. I created this scene to somewhat resemble a possible scene or a possible project. So you now have an idea of some of the material I've created and may utilize in creative work.



--- Creative Works Plans ---

You read in the previous section about my ambitions to make animations and other material. This sounds like stuff I should be announcing on "John's Creative Space" and not here on "John's Blog Space," but I feel I am communicating to a broader audience with this blog. That's why I link to my "StyleSpace by JBM" blog here on "John's Blog Space." It's all about trying to reach as much of my audience as possible.

Rambling aside, let me share with you material I am working on with the use of my voxel artwork:

• I plan to do some animations. I know how to animate models in Blender using bones and such, but I am not as confident in making models to be animated properly. What I may do is mostly make slideshows with subtitles. I had an interesting plan to try making animations using text-to-speech (TTS) voices. But unless you have some of the more professional-type TTS voices, forget about it. I often try to be cheap. I am not usually wanting proper voice-over talent for my work. Just want to be unique.

• Among the animation ideas, I have mostly thought about various short stories I've created and want to bring to life. In fact, I thought of a story just last night. It was a story of two High School students who have endured depression recently, and all because of one man. I even thought of a bunch of comical animations, but don't know how to express them.

• I have planned to release conceptual voxel models of a game idea. The models created primarily offer a look at a series of posts I plan on releasing to "John's Creative Space" in a unique set of blog posts for that blog. Some posts here on "John's Blog Space" will be deleted and replaced with new versions on "John's Creative Space."

• I want to be careful with the plans for this talking point. I planned on making some animations inspired by various personalities. Some stories and animations I thought of are inspired by people whom I've come across in person and online. There are even certain parodies I've planned. I thought of a project that would tie in more with "StyleSpace by JBM" than with my other blogs because one project involves a fantasy story featuring a set of fictitious fashion bloggers and certain challenges they face. Maybe with some experience and skill, I may go ahead with that project. Besides that project, I even simply had plans to make voxel art of certain bloggers I like and/or respect.


All this and more are in the pipeline for my creative works. Stay tuned to my blogging work to see what I come up with!



--- What I Want My Readers to Know ---

I blog. I prepare art. I may do videos. As much as I love blogging, I try to keep busy in many different ways. So when it seems I am not active in one department, I am either just living life or trying to make something special in the future. You will certainly be in the know when I do create something for you to enjoy. I am certainly happy and hopeful to create something that culminates all of the creative energy and all of the creativity that I have to express. If you've supported my blogging work, I also would appreciate your support with my other works.

LAST CALL! If you want to follow my creative works, please visit my creative works blog:

Hump Day! Welcome to #WaybackWednesday! It's time again I share videos of old stuff among my wonderful people worldwide. Get ready for another batch of classic songs (and other material?) for this Wednesday. I'm taking a lot of you back while some of you may be checking out some material for the first time ever. Either way, you're going back in time.






--- Wayback Wednesday: How it Works ---

Wayback Wednesday on JBS
Welcome to Wayback Wednesday on John's Blog Space!

Most of what I select for "Wayback Wednesday" primarily consists of music videos. Rather than share with fans, I usually share YouTube videos among friends in my Facebook profile. Most of what I share are selections based on a certain group of songs I want to feature. I want to label it as "Wayback Wednesday" for the sake of hashtag usage. The proper person in me knows it is "Way Back Wednesday" rather than "Wayback Wednesday." The main criteria element is that the material must be at least five years old. So as of this blog post, all Wayback Wednesday features material from 2009 or earlier. Nothing from 2010 or later will be featured. All Wayback Wednesday selections go in chronological order from earliest to oldest. So more recent material is featured before going to least recent material. For example, a song from 2003 will be shown followed by a song either from that same year or before 2003.

Here's the quick rundown:
• material that is at least five years old is featured.
• selected material is from more recent to less recent.
• not every selection is music.

This is a sample post:

Wayback Wednesday: (Month Day, Year)

• (song arist - song title, or title) (year) {linked}
(description)


I decide to post just a link to the video rather than slow down the performance of my blog with embedded YouTube videos. Links to some videos may or may not be available all the time. You're basically clicking at your own discretion in this sense.


Depending on traffic and other considerations, I may start this as a common feature of my blog. Having said all of this... let's begin!



--- Wayback Wednesday: Selections ---

Here are the songs I've selected for this Wednesday. Click on the links to view the YouTube videos associated with the individual songs.

If you like to comment, feel free to let me know which songs you like from this list I selected.


Wayback Wednesday: October 15, 2014

Jordin Sparks - One Step at a Time (2008)
Some time after Hurricane Ike hit the Houston area back in 2008, I wanted to get a music CD for when power would be restored to my house. What I did was pick up Jordin Sparks' debut album- a self-titled one. My favorite song of hers is this one- "One Step at a Time." Why do I love it? Listen for yourself.


Kings of Leon - Use Somebody (2008)
Here is a very cool song for you rock fans. I once heard this song as a fabulous trance remix. You, however, can listen to this as a great rock track from the previous decade.


Gym Class Heroes - Clothes Off! (2007)
Not sure what MTV award show I was watching, but when I heard this song by these guys, I was sold on how awesome the Gym Class Heroes are. They have a unique blend of hip-hop with a little bit of rock thrown in. These guys are from New York... but upstate New York. These guys are Fueled by Ramen and are all kinds of awesome. Have a listen to this one!


Lucas Prata - And She Said... (2006)
That's what she said! :) I'm giving you a double shot of Mr. Lucas Prata. This first song is a classic of his. It is surely a catchy number from him. What did she say? Enjoy this song here.


Lucas Prata - Never Be Alone (2004)
The other Lucas Prata song I selected is this one which was released two years before the classic "And She Said..." I am not sure if I could have found this song in any better quality, but I ended up picking this video to showcase this song.


X-Ecutioners and Linkin Park - It's Goin' Down (2002)
The X-Ecutioners are responsible for taking certain rock-type songs and giving them a nice electronic dance music remixes. Are you a Linkin Park fan? They are not your average rockers. They are very diverse in their styles. I personally respect Linkin Park. Listen to this fine joint.


M2M - Don't Say You Love Me (1999)
If classic '90s pop-rock is what you want, meet M2M. This song was featured in the soundtrack to "Pokémon: The First Movie" in 1999. You can enjoy this one even if you aren't a Pokémon fan. When looking for this song, I tried to find the best-quality version of this song. Here is a YouTube tip- the most-viewed version of some song doesn't always mean it's the best version. So enjoy listening to this version I found for you. Sweet vocals and fun music make this a total joy to listen to.


S Club 7 - S Club Party (1999)
Here is a feel-good song for you all. Why feel good? Because there's no party quite like an S Club Party. If you're feeling down, maybe this song will get you feeling good.


A*Teens - Dancing Queen (1999)
Ready for some more fun? I got it courtesy of the A*Teens. This is a modern (at its time) version of ABBA's classic "Dancing Queen" song from the 1970s performed by this Swedish group.


Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses and Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses (Country Version) (1997)
Let me be honest. I first heard of this song from a MIDI file I listened to long ago. It was one of the most beautifully-done songs I've heard. There was a time I heard the actual song. I included the original version and the country version. You know what? If you listen to this song and start to cry, it's natural because this song is just beautiful with beautiful lyrics. Anyhow... please enjoy this one! You have either no soul or no appreciation of music if you don't love this song in any way.


Crush - Jellyhead (1996)
I remember this dance piece back around 1997 or 1998 or so. It was one of many dance-type songs I've heard on 104.1 KRBE here in Houston back then. This song is a '90s dance classic to me. Never heard this song before? If not, get to know Crush by checking this song out.


D' Angelo - Brown Sugar (1994)
Let's delve into the realm of R&B with a hot joint from D' Angelo. Smooth vocals and sweet beats are what you can expect in this one. Go ahead- groove to this one.


Jeffrey Osborne - On the Wings of Love (1982)
This song is beautiful to listen to as it is sung handsomely by Jeffrey Osborne. I wasn't born when this song was released in 1982. Trust me- this song is beautiful. Listen to it and enjoy.


Abba - Dancing Queen (1976)
You probably didn't think I'd leave this post without mentioning the classic "Dancing Queen" now, did you? This is the original before the A*Teens rendition. It's still a fun song performed greatly. Old school loving coming your way!


"First NES Commercial" (BONUS VIDEO!)
Did you know that on October 15, 1985; the Nintendo Entertainment System was first sold in the United States? Happy birthday, NES! This is a bonus video for you NES lovers.


This concludes another "Wayback Wednesday" post of mine.





I hope you enjoyed this selection of old songs. Subscribe and Follow my blog(s) if you enjoy my online work. I enjoyed finding these songs for you all. Thanks for checking out my posts! Have a great day/night and thank you for reading!

(UPDATED: October 15, 2014)

Welcome to #WaybackWednesday! Usually in social media, we have "Throwback Thursday" where we share memories of the past. There is also "Wayback Wednesday." As I share videos of old stuff among my Facebook friends and family on Wednesdays, I will experiment with making my selection of songs for "Wayback Wednesday" in my blog. I may try this again another Wednesday; I may not. Either way, I am always looking for new ways to engage my audience and bring traffic to my blog. So thank you for taking part in this experiment.


About the Label: Wayback Wednesday

Currently, it is an experiment. "Wayback Wednesday" is something I do on Wednesdays in my Facebook profile where I share old material to my friends, mostly in the form of YouTube videos, and mostly music videos. I try to feature different material every Wednesday to interest my friends. It was only recently I experimented featuring these "Wayback Wednesday" posts in my blog as opposed to just my Facebook profile page.

Depending on traffic and attention, this may become a regular feature to my blog that I will try to contribute to every Wednesday. If unsuccessful, I'll just go back to doing this for fun in my Facebook profile page. This is just an experiment as of this post.


LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S):

For this post, allow me to pick out some material for you all to enjoy. Here are the songs I've selected for this Wednesday. Click on the links to view the YouTube videos associated with the individual songs.

If you like to comment, feel free to let me know which songs you like from this list I selected.


Wayback Wednesday: October 8, 2014

Justice - D.A.N.C.E. (2007)
This has always been a fun song with a nice vibe to it. Feel free to have a listen to this song and enjoy the cool vibes offered by this song.


Crystal Kay - Hard to Say (2002)
Crystal Kay is what some would call "Blackanese" or "Blasian." These are terms given to Afro-Asian people. She is Black but with some Korean blood. Anyhow, Crystal Kay is a great Japanese pop star. This was about the first song of hers I heard. This is Crystal Kay with "Hard to Say."


MISIA - Everything (2001)
This is my all-time favorite song from JPOP song from the amazing Misaki Ito, better known as MISIA. This song lasts almost seven minutes, and just about each minute is wonderful. So go ahead- enjoy this beautiful song! :)


Utada Hikaru - Can You Keep a Secret? (2001)
Utada Hikaru- also nicknamed "Hikki"- was one of the first JPOP stars I enjoyed listening music to. She was born in New York City and is actually four days younger than me. There were very few songs of hers I disliked. This is the first real song of hers I heard and liked. Can you keep a secret?


PPK - Resurrection (2001)
Time to please you trance fans now. This is a classic from PPK called Resurrection. Enjoy, mates!


BT - Never Gonna Come Back Down (1999)
For a song simply to be called as "Never Gonna Come Back Down" is surely a song to infuse some motivation. BT made it. This one is a classic tune from 1999. Enjoy this one!


Mariah Carey ft. Ol Dirty Bastard (1995)
Me and Mariah. We go back like babies and pacifiers. Ol' Dirty Dog no liar. Keep your fantasy hot like fire. JUMP JUMP! Here is a tune from Mariah Carey called "Fantasy." While the song itself is good, it was better with Ol' Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan. Ol' Dirty Bastard- which is not one of my nicknames or any accurate description of me- was perhaps the most charismatic and most engaging member of one of hip-hop's all-time greatest groups. So with this song, enjoy the combination of Mariah and ODB.


Jumpin Jack Boy - WANDS (1993)
A rock song called "Jumpin Jack Boy" obviously will not stir any excitement among most circles. This song is actually quite cool. WANDS is one of the coolest J-ROCK bands ever. Enjoy the melodic coolness of this song.


Whitney Houston - I Have Nothing (1992)
The late Whitney Houston has had a number of great songs. Some of which, I've focused in Wayback Wednesday posts on Facebook. This song is a lovely and powerful song. If you haven't heard of "I Have Nothing," go ahead and give this one a listen.


Bobby Brown - Humpin' Around (1992)
It's Wednesday. It's Hump Day. Some people call Wednesday "Hump Day." So to that cause, why I don't offer you some Bobby Brown? 'Cause ain't nobody humpin' around!


Lionel Richie - All Night Long (1983)
Get ready for this jungle-style song released in 1983. It is a wonderful song with a nice sort of vibe to it. This song was used in a Mountain Dew commercial years ago. Lionel Richie is ready to go all night long. Are you?


Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing (1982)
My mother told me about the dark fate Marvin Gaye suffered. Can you imagine your own father disliking you? So much so... to the point of a father killing his son? It's terrible. When it comes to Marvin Gaye, this is one of Marvin Gaye's finer songs. Come get some sexual healing from the great Marvin Gaye himself with "Sexual Healing."


Roupa Nova - Tema da Vitoria (1981)
The winner of the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix is played "Tema da Vitoria." This song was first released in 1981. This is a wonderful tune to listen to. Enjoy this one.


Bee Gees - How Deep is Your Love (1977)
The Bee Gees are up next. Smooth vocals and lovely instrumentals are what you can enjoy with this song. This is a fabulous song. Enjoy it to the fullest.


Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive (1977)
Finally, more Bee Gees. This time, get ready for a positive piece of music here, because it's all about stayin' alive, man! 1977 love coming your way. Where were you back then?


That concludes the first time I did a "Wayback Wednesday" post outside of Facebook.





Again, depending on a number of factors, I may continue make this a regular piece of my blogging work, or I may abandon doing a blog post altogether on this. Let me know what you think about these old songs. Thank you for reading!

Friday, September 26, 2014

Nobody ever wants to feel like just another entity. No one wants to ever feel replaceable. Feeling like just another [whatever] makes some people feel unloved and disrespected. I always try to tell people personally online how much I appreciate knowing and following them. If there are people whom I love and respect in any capacity, I want to show I am not just another random soul. That's why I sometimes want to tell certain people in blogging and elsewhere in social media how much I am appreciative of others. I don't want to feel like just another person. I prefer feeling like I (hopefully) have provided some kind of positive impact on someone's life. Some people- like celebrities- are used to getting so much support from fans, and they usually don't try to individually show their appreciation to fans. Then sometimes, there are famous online personalities that either do or don't individually respond to others right away. Regardless, the feeling of knowing your presence means something to someone is always assuring and admired.

Here is another blog post which hopefully will help you feel better about yourself if you feel like just another useless or random soul to others.





--- Just Another... ---

Let's set the mood.

just another
^ Do you ever feel like you are just someone inferior, rather than being someone important or special? Feeling like just another nobody can make anyone feel disrespected and not appreciated.


Here are some nuances of feeling like just another...

Just Another... Among Peers.

Feeling like just another person among peers makes you simply seem like you offer no value or incentive with your presence or your work. You are basically someone who feels shoved to the side rather than someone even moderately appreciated.


Just Another... Among Classmates and the Workplace.

Every student in a class is important. At least... for teachers and places who seriously care about everyone getting a quality education and treated with respect. A workplace will have its hodgepodge of people who'll get along and those who can't get along. No student or employee wants to feel like he/she is just another expendable and replaceable entity. Some may not be special or wanted, but the opportunity for someone to take a school or business to the next level obviously wants to feel special and not feel like another worthless soul.


Just Another... Among Sports Teams.

Team chemistry in sports is crucial to success. Nobody wants to feel divided in a sports environment. A team that doesn't feel like each individual player isn't any real contributor to a team's success ends up feeling like just another athlete that could be better utilized.


Just Another... in Relationships.

Feeling like just another person rather than someone special can be damaging and demoralizing. If one feels someone can do better than the person he/she is with, that person should devote his/her entire energy towards someone he/she can love with his/her heart rather than be with someone who doesn't suit that person.

An even more worthless feeling is dating someone or being with someone simply for romantic or sexual pleasure, then letting them go. You think being with someone who doesn't appreciate you is bad enough? Try simply being someone's temporary love toy. Or as we say, "wham, bam, thank you ma'am." I've heard in countless daytime talk shows of women being one night stands. You know- be with someone and move on. Being loved by someone makes one feel like just another


Just Another... in Families.

How would you like to feel like you're just another person... among your own family? This can lead to absolute worthlessness if your own family treats you like you're just another insignificant person. Either you have to have done something completely unforgivable or have family members who simply hate you to ever feel like you are just another member of the family rather than someone very special. Your family should be a voice of support and love. If you feel like just another family member within your family, you feel worthless and unimportant. And among families, this can be seriously depressing.


Just Another... Among Fans.

I don't have a lot of people who actively comment to my material online. But for the loyal ones who do read and post comments, I am thankful. I am thankful for the fans I do have and those who do admire my work. I may not respond to everyone, but I feel great knowing my work does mean something to others. Maybe I'll have superstar status and have all kinds of fans on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere. I still want to assure my loyal and respectful audience that their support is very much appreciated.


Just Another... When Trying to Impress Someone.

When I interact with some people I respect online, I sometimes feel like I am disregarded or disrespected. Sort of like when I blogged about unrequited love, there are times when I feel like I am not appreciated or that my attempts to show kindness don't mean anything. Sometimes you may try to be kind to someone and maybe not even realize if someone honestly dislikes you. The feeling of being just another person who likes someone or something in some way is the feeling expressed here. At least it feels good knowing someone honest and loyal cares.


Through the feeling of being just another person in others' lives, it makes you wonder two things: (1) what exactly do I mean to someone? (2) Are there things I could change about myself to where I feel a bit more important or a bit more respected to someone?



--- Just Another: Feeling Better About Yourself ---

If you feel like you are just another insignificant soul, either you can do more to feel more important, or you need to surround yourself with people who care more about you than the ones you are around at present. Feeling like just another person with no charm or appeal just makes you feel worthless in the eyes of others. Don't forget to believe in yourself regardless of what anyone may think about you. How can others believe in you if you don't believe in yourself?

The most important thing in all of this is in being able to remain strong and to feel loved. Any sort of thought that makes you feel less than you really are just cheapens your worth to others. Maybe you can change to where you may be better respected among others. If that doesn't work, then you just don't have too many other alternatives.



--- Just Another: To All of my Loyal Readers and Fans... ---

I just want you to know that you all are NEVER just another bunch of people who randomly visit my blog. Your cooperation and involvement with me and my work are appreciated every day, all year. You are NEVER just another soul that visits my work- especially if you are a loyal and honest visitor to my blogs and my other online work. So don't ever feel bad, unloved, or not appreciated.





Time for discussion. Here goes...

Have you ever felt like just another insignificant or unimportant entity? If so, how do you deal with such conditions and being around people who don't care as much? How would you help someone who may be dealing with a situation like this?

These life issue topics can really be tough to blog about. However, I feel I must discuss these matters so I can help people feel better about themselves. I care more about helping people than getting views with topics such as this. Anyhow, I hope you found some use for this blog post. I hope you Subscribe and Follow to keep up with my work.

Rainy days can either be relaxing or depressing. Some people just want to stay home and be lazy when its wet. Some find rain to be relaxing. Any way you take rainy days, everyone has a different sort of take on days that get anywhere from misty to total washout. Rainy days depress some people because such days are so dull and bring down peoples' productivity. To counteract this, some people even devote certain rainy days to fun in-home entertainment, like watching movies or playing board games. On the other hand, some people embrace rainy weather by doing things ranging from playing in the rain to even (among the fashion community) do fashion pictures and posts while it is raining.

The certain mood to rainy days can range from days where there are sprinkles or drizzle to flooding rain days. Some days are just rainy, and some others can be rainy with storms. These sorts of things can screw with your mind if rainy days really affect your thinking. I personally admit that I do tend to be less productive and less like staying awake on rainy days. Everyone takes rainy days differently and in different ways. Weather does play a psychological edge often times.

Whether a day is a dry one or a wet one, it's still a day of the week and still a day of your life. Try to make the most of each day regardless of what the weather is like. Creative types will find ways to make rainy days more productive and more interesting. If that means staying home and reading your favorite book(s) or watching your favorite movie(s), so be it. You still try and make the most of each day even if you loathe rainy days. So remain strong if rainy days bring you down.





This was a mostly casual blog post- no research or anything to try to make something high-quality and detailed. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and maybe found something to discuss in regards to this. Speaking of discussion, here is my question to you all who want to discuss this topic a bit more...

How do you handle rainy days?

Every day is a sunny/fair day when you visit my blog(s). Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you have a great day/night and that you'll return to this blog of mine for more blogging madness from yours truly.

This world can be a sad world to live in. A lot of things in life and society make it seem as if you can't do anything anymore. Or at least... do without fear of the unknown. These feelings help make life unenjoyable to some people. Negative influences are overexposed, often leaving us forget or neglect the positive life has to offer. This leaves us feeling like life can't be enjoyed as much as it could be. I am not going to solve all of the world's problems with just one blog post or a video. What I CAN do, however, is offer this blog post to hopefully share some thoughts and offer something that I think will be of help and of positivity. That is what I hope to do with this blog post.

As someone who has experienced moments of weakness, I am not providing this information as any sort of of professional at handling depression. The reason why I am providing this post and this advice is to help others who may not be as happy or content help feel better. I especially have put full effort in trying to provide something very useful and positive. The thoughts expressed stem from personal thoughts and even personal experiences.

Having said all of this, I hope you enjoy this post. Now let's begin.





--- A Happier World? ---

Ever wish there was something you wish you could change? What about something you could either change or influence change? Everyone has at least something they wish they could change about the world or how we live in life and society. For me, this relates to trying to have control over lots of things that lead us to feeling down. You won't have full control of your life. You are even going to worry over things you have no control over. However, there are a number of things that can help you feel happier and more in control than with a lot of other things.


Effects of Negativity.

What happens when it seems as if all you are truly exposed to is negativity? Among other things, you give into such negativity to where it takes over your life. You begin to lose interest in doing things you love. Some things that make you happy sometimes don't work as effectively when you're down. You sometimes may try to find anything to help bring happiness and harmony into your life, and those measures may not even work often times.

Negativity can lead to many disparaging things. Among others- depression, hopelessness, low self-esteem, anti-social behavior, health ailments, etc. So many different negative influences bring us down. Some of these negative influences can even be self-inflicted. These can involve things within our control or outside of our control. The important thing to remember from the latter part of the last sentence is that you have to be ready to deal with and accept certain things even if you can't control them. Regardless, a lot of things really rack our brains in trying to maintain happiness.

--- What a Happier World Entails ---

Here are elements to help produce some positivity...


Appreciation.

Another element of social media is in being appreciated by others. Often when I visit blogs or comment, I usually wonder if I am appreciated or welcomed. I sometimes don't want to feel like I am just another anonymous figure posting comments to blog posts and other things. It feels good knowing you are appreciated by others. I know a lot of people will say in their blogs that they appreciate comments and views, but I want to personally let certain entities know I personally enjoy their work. If I feel like I am not appreciated when I visit someone's material, I almost seem like just another talking head or (even worse)... a stalker, at least, according to the party(-ies) in question. Doesn't it feel good knowing you are appreciated for your work rather than be disrespected or feel like you are unwelcome?


Encouragement.

When someone praises you for what you do, it helps you to do better and be better. As someone who mostly follows fashion blogs, you can imagine what it is like when someone praises one for their looks rather than make all sorts of insults and destructive criticism. Being encouraged allows you to remain positive and helps you stay focused and confident. When I offered compliments to certain individuals on how they look, some people even tell me that they feel encouraged or motivated to keep posting outfits and pictures. It was my honest kindness helping others feel better and feel encouraged.


Uplifting Spirits.

People sometimes just need a lift. It is tough to do tasks or live life if you feel down all the time. So people need their spirits uplifted in weak times. Sometimes, people have already had such high spirits, all to have their spirits broken because of some incident or series of incidents. For example, think of a sports team that loses a game on a last minute score by the other team. If we can uplift other peoples' spirits, they can feel better about themselves and feel loved even when things go wrong. I certainly feel great knowing I've positively impacted someone's life.


Knowing People Care.

There ARE people out there who care about others. There ARE still people with great hearts doing great things for people. Chivalry isn't dead. I think what gets a lot of people is that we don't really care about other people caring (or attempting to care) about us because of a certain lack of trust. It is true that you can't trust everybody. Likewise, it is at least nice to know someone cares about you and has your best interests in mind. I don't think you should rely on people, but it does feel wonderful knowing somebody cares about you. Be thankful if someone does care about you and for you.


These are among many different things to help people feel better and happier. When people feel better and when there is lots of positive to look to, people live better and feel better. Surroundings and other factors sometimes allow us to not feel as confident or as happy as we could be.



--- Inspiration for this Post ---

Really, I've been thinking about a lot of things in my life and in the lives of others. A terrible thing is that we all have certain aspects of life that really just bring us to shame and make us feel sad. Some things just really make us feel like we live in a sad world with no possible way to improve our positive mood. I certainly can't help make the world a better place, nor am I able to work miracles. However, I can still make some sort of contributions either to myself or to others to help make life happier for myself and others.

Some people basically need certain things to be happy about. Not everyone is willing to share a laugh or truly feel positive each day. What CAN be done is maybe find ways we can make our society and our world a happier place. It is tough to feel happy when things in your life bring you down so much. Some people sort of wait for something positive to come along to draw happiness into one's life. Some others attempt certain things just to try to make something happy happen.

Whatever the case, I think there are too many things that break us down rather than keep us up. I am not making excuses or anything- it's the truth. Some people just have certain tough times or certain feelings which make us feel depressed and unable to enjoy what good there is in the world.



--- A Happier World: Final Thoughts ---

The world we live in can be a hodgepodge of things that bring us down and make us unable to enjoy life. Whether self-inflicted or brought on by countless influences within and outside of our control, life isn't enjoyable when we are surrounded by so many negative things. We sometimes bring unhappiness on ourselves in having certain feelings that prevent us from feeling our best and feeling happy. Whatever the case, there are too many negative influences that bring us to unhappiness. It is really unfortunate that there aren't enough influences to help us fell happier about ourselves, the lives we live, the people we are around, our own health conditions, and countless other things. If we can find ways to help bring happiness into the world and have it outweigh the negative burdens we life with, this world can be a happier place. Feeling happy inside and out even with countless negative influences within and outside is the key here.

Having a more positive life and having more positive influences can help us live and feel better. Too much negative leads to many poor things- depression, low self-esteem, health ailments, pessimism, hopelessness, and the like. Even people who seem normal and happy may have lingering issues that help prevent them from completely feeling happy.

If even to make yourself a better person, do whatever you can to try to work with people to help them feel better. I feel being able to help one person feel better is enough to spark a movement of helping people feel better about themselves and offer happiness. If we can help some people feel happier about themselves or do things to help make life better for others, it will help make the world a happier place regardless of the various issues that plague our world. We can make the world a happier place and live happier lives if we work to make things happen rather than pile on more doom and gloom. Take it from someone whom has had multiple episodes of depression- we need to do whatever it takes to help others feel happy. Sometimes, making others feel happy makes yourself feel happy- you certainly want this if you yourself are experiencing some sort of unhappiness or feel like times can be much better.

Negative influences can be internal or external. They can stem from things within our control or outside out of our control. They can be things we can prevent or things forced onto us. No matter what negative influences there are, we still need to remain as happy and as hopeful as possible to prevent lives spiraling out of control to where there is no chance of recovery. So go ahead- let's try to make life and times happier for others, and let's try to reduce the many negative elements that bring down our society and our world.


A Music Video Influence.

All I got to say is... it may be tough, not every day is a great one. At least from one person, here is a message to take to heart- don't worry, be happy!


^ "Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy"


Best wishes to all of you with all of your various situations.





Get ready to sound off. Here's the discussion:

Do we live in a negative world? Is it possible to reverse the negatives that impact our lives and our world? Of what importance is being and feeling happy to you? Is it possible we can make the world a happier place and our society a happier society?

Bowling can be quite fun to partake in. You never know what will happen as you try to knock down 10 pins in a frame of bowling. It can be fun no matter what. So for this casual blog post, I'll share thoughts on the sport of bowling. I am no ace in the sport or anything, but I have done some bowling before and want to share this with my wonderful worldwide audience.

NOTE: When I did my research for this blog post, Wikipedia made mention of two different kinds of bowling- pin bowling and target bowling. This post refers to pin bowling, and especially the traditional ten-pin bowling.





--- Bowling at a Glance ---

Let's set the mood! Here is a little bowling video to get you excited about this topic:


^ "Crazy Bowling Shot"

Now for some commentary on bowling.


Brief History.

(Information in this section was taken from Wikipedia)

The sport of Ten-Pin bowling dates back to more than 3,000 or 5,000 years ago; and more modern bowling dates back to about 1840 with the first ten-pin bowling alley built in New York City. Bowling equipment was proudly served by the Brunswick Corporation starting in 1914 to help enhance the sport. Just like golf, this was a sport brought over to the United States from Europe, and it stemmed from the German nine-pin game of Kegeln.


Who Bowls?

Bowling today happens in a number of different bowling alleys and is enjoyed by people ranging from casual bowlers up to professional bowlers. You have families and circles of friends playing bowling at bowling alleys, and you even have the professionals- like in the PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) who are among the very best in the profession. I have even seen TV highlights of collegiate bowling at times. The sport is played by males and females, and they range from individual bowlers to bowling teams.


Technique.

Though the sport is enjoyed by a range of people with a range of abilities, there is actual technique involved in being a great bowler. You don't just roll the ball down the lane and hope to knock down all of the pins. The strategy begins as you try to line up your shot. Much like a race car driver has to envision the next turn of a race track when running laps around the track (I had to get a racing reference in!), a bowler has to envision how he/she is going to knock down all the pins in one frame of bowling. The bowler has to give a good amount of force swinging the ball and rolling the ball down the lane. The ball can go straight ahead or even have a curved trajectory to try to knock down all the pins. And of course, you want to make sure to knock down the pins while making sure not to let the ball fall into the out of bounds area- the good old gutter balls.


(Some) Terminology.

A traditional game of bowling is done in ten frames. Frames in bowling are like innings in baseball. You get two chances to knock down all ten pins in a frame. In the tenth frame, you can get three attempts to knock down all ten pins. If one is successful at knocking down all ten pins in one bowl, you get a strike. Bowling three or more strikes in succession earns you a turkey. If unsuccessful in knocking down all ten pins in one bowl but take out the missed pins in the bottom half of the frame, you earn a spare. The greatest feat any bowler can accomplish is the Perfect Game- a score of 300. How do you do that? Knock down all ten pins... in all ten frames. It has been done before, but it is rare. Bowling a perfect game is as great of an accomplishment in bowling as pitching a perfect game (or even a no-hitter) in baseball.


Bowling Style.

Show some style when at the bowling lanes. Here are a few things to note:

bowling ball
^ from: www.amazon.com - If you really want to be unique, why not have your own special bowling balls?

Most bowling balls are very smooth and shiny. Some others are more rubberized. Not all bowling balls are created equal. Find a type that best suits you and your skill level if you want your own custom bowling balls.


bowling shoes
^ from: www.amazon.com - Bowling shoes. Men's bowling shoes, in this case.

For those of you who read my fashion blog "StyleSpace by JBM," I may discuss bowling fashion in that blog to compliment this discussion here.

The most important bit of fashion regarding bowling is in bowling shoes. You need sufficient traction on the wood floors as you try to line up your shot. Bowling shoes are low-heel oxfords that give you the needed traction as you bowl. They are available for males and females in various styles. You rent a pair of bowling shoes to go bowling in (or you can bring your own, of course). Just find a pair that suits the shoe size you normally wear.

Some people wear bowling gloves or wrist supports to get a better grip of the ball. Consider getting yourself these items if you want better grip of the ball as you're preparing to bowl frames.

There isn't really much else to discuss regarding bowling fashion except for those who wear special shirts and jackets to look stylish while bowling. You probably want to look at such items if you just want to look cool at the bowling alley or when you're trying to buy items to form your own bowling team.


That's about it in discussing bowling.



--- Bowling: Final Thoughts ---

Bowling is very fun, whether doing going to a bowling alley or even in playing virtual bowling. I still remember playing bowling with Wii Sports or Wii Sports Resort. I usually score in the 170-190 range in my Wii bowling. Bowling is still great fun either playing solo or with others. Go out and enjoy playing this fun sport. Or if you're watching on TV, marvel at the technique and skill bowlers of various skill levels provide. There's just nothing like it.

Sometimes you have it, sometimes you don't. You are sometimes able to effectively do your job or hobby to perfection (or near it), and you sometimes can't. Being in that "zone" is all about performing at a level that makes you a superstar at something. All of us have certain levels we wish we could be at all the time in whatever we do whether as a hobby or a profession. This blog post is all about being in that zone. What is that zone? What qualifies at being at a certain level that we can be satisfied with? A lot of my fellow bloggers could possibly relate to what I am about to discuss in this blog post.

If you're new here, welcome to John's Blog Space! This is my blog about anything and everything. The topics are random (for the most part), but it's randomness that makes sense. Be sure to Subscribe and Follow my blog if you enjoy my work. PLEASE get social with me through social media if you want to show further love of my work. That, will be much appreciated.

Okay, enough small talk. Let's go to work!





--- Being in the "Zone" ---

Let me share a quote with you all before I begin:

"When I'm doing my best is when I'm completely focused... You completely wipe off any thoughts of the future, there's nothing going on in the past, you're just completely locked in on the moment, and there's no thinking, you're zoned in on this moment in time."

-MMA Fighter, Frank Mir

And now a random image...

in the zone
^ from: www.trulycaribbean.net - What happens when you are you "in the zone" doing hobbies or professions? More to come in this blog post!

We all want to do our best at any task given to us or want to take part in. We could be doing anything- taking part in a hobby, performing in our profession(s), competing in athletic and sporting activities, even in being romantic or sexually active with others. The only thing that makes us happy in our work and activities is knowing something is done right and efficiently. Somewhere during the process of participating in a task is a sometimes rare level of performance that makes us more efficient and more effective in completing tasks. This "zone," then, is a special bit of territory that makes us near unbeatable in our work. While we do our best to satisfy the needs and wants of the task at hand, there are certain situations when positive momentum takes us over to where we consistently crank out positive results. These high levels of performance don't last forever, so we have to take advantage of these times and ride that wave as much as we can. Being "in the zone" makes you feel good while also going for longer. If you are in the zone, you feel you can perform harder for longer, and you feel impervious to any and all distractions.

This "zone" is a level of karma or spirit that isn't easily broken by any number of factors. Once you are in the zone, there is nearly no stopping your momentum or your vibe. You also don't want things to ruin being in that zone. Something like this is not anything you can quickly call upon to help you do better. Being "in the zone" is not like picking up an energy drink and being able to quickly draw upon such energy on demand for a time when you really need it. This "zone" can only be reached with momentum or, in some cases, luck.

So that is a look at being in that zone. What about some thoughts on being in this zone? Go to the next section.



--- The Zone: Schools of Thought ---

Here are ways to look at being in the zone, based on what actually qualifies as being in the zone...


Being in the Zone.

Being in the zone means you are performing whatever task you are doing, but you are doing it more efficiently and more confidently than you normally would. It means you are doing something in a way or ways that most people could probably NEVER accomplish if they were doing the same task(s) you're doing. You feel better and more confident about yourself than you normally would. You may even enjoy what you do more than you ever have. This "zone" is more like something that attaches onto your mind and spirit and helps you do something better what you can already do. You can complete certain tasks, but that zone helps you feel even more professional and capable.

That is what it is like when you are in the zone. What about when you are NOT in that zone? Well...


NOT Being in the Zone.

What happens when you are NOT in the "zone?" Where do I start... you get bored, you seem unable to do tasks right, you maybe even give up, you may doubt yourself, you may hate yourself, you are counterproductive... see where I'm going with this? Not being in the zone is a level of performance where (to use runner speak) "hit the wall."


When Being in the "Zone" Spikes.

Earlier in this blog post, I mentioned that being in the zone is not like picking up something on demand to be "in the zone." Reaching this level of performance is something you have to feel and be confident about. At a certain point of being "in the zone," you will spike. You will go from great confidence and belief to returning to a certain level of determination and drive for what you do. Let's face it- unless you are REALLY good, nobody performs at a high level for a long time. Even Cinderella goes from a polarizing princess to being just another average girl. Don't feel bad if you are unable to perform at high levels for longer than what you are probably capable of. Momentum runs out. It is called reality.


You obviously want to perform well at something. Whether or not you reach that "zone" makes you better or worse depending on if you actually have the energy or the drive to do so.



--- In the Zone: Final Thoughts ---

Enjoy being "in the zone" when you are performing certain tasks or taking part in certain activities. Just like there are days when you feel good and times where you feel lazy, being in a certain "zone" allows you to be better than what you are normally capable of. You are not able to perform at the best levels all the time. So when you're in the zone in your activities, you reach a level of zen and harmony where you can perform at your best more efficiently and consistently. You will ultimately spike when being in the zone, so when you "come back down to earth," just remember that you are capable of anything as long as you have the drive and the energy to do so. Take advantage of these moments when you can perform at the highest level... then savor being at even higher than higher levels.



--- In the Zone: BONUS Final Thoughts! ---

There is kind of a special reason why I created this blog post for reasons other than trying to motivate and inspire my readers/visitors. Recently, I have become active again- wanting to make more posts for my "John's Creative Space" blog including 3D models and music. I am also trying to return to YouTube with more video content. I mostly have been drawing energy to try to fuel a comeback to a lot of my creative work. Most of the reason why I didn't blog so much this past month was because I was trying to boost my creative energy. Among other things, I recently have gotten back into making voxel models, and I even learned how to rig models in Blender. I am currently learning and trying to make animations with Blender.

Right now, the ups and downs of my own creative energy is at a high again. So I created this blog post to not only announce trying to be more creative and share more content, but also to help other people maybe get inspired and motivated. I feel better about myself knowing I can help other people feel better about themselves. Consider this post something to ponder about as you go through life. I hope I'm able to inspire you and maybe get you going as well after you've read my post here.





This post is over. So let me ask for you discussion's sake:

What does being "in the zone" mean to you? How do you feel you perform when you reach such a level of performance?

I hope you liked it and could take something away from it- as I always hope I can do for all of you. Thank you for visiting my blog as well as for reading!

Everyone needs a support system to help deal with a number of issues in our lives. Some have a strong support system, others do not. Some loners are their own support system. Regardless, it is always nice to know other people care about us to where they lend their support to us. Having such a support system helps all of us better be able to handle various aspects of life and certain tasks and endeavors.

Before I go any further, let me share with you a quote I found online to demonstrate how special it is to have a support system:

"My friends and family are my support system. They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear and they are there for me in the good and bad times. Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what's keeping my head above the water."

-Kelly Clarkson

Let's continue.


--- Support Systems ---

How about a random image to set the tone here?

support system
^ from: forestyouthworkersnetwork.org.uk - You know you can succeed and solve problems, but we sometimes need a support system to help ensure and assure we can succeed and solve problems.

Not everyone believes in having a support system. Many just think if they are on their own that they have only themselves to blame for not accomplishing a task or doing something right. Think of the classic test of falling over backwards and having someone catch you. Not having a support system, you'd fall hard on your back and feel the pain. A person who catches you in your fall or something soft supporting the fall is that support system. The support system is there to help you in the event of an emergency or to help you towards recovery from failure.

Whoever or whatever serves as your support system, be thankful and blessed you have such support. You want to succeed. Others want you to succeed. Why don't you and others get together and make magic happen? Yeah. Let's work with you to help you to succeed. You know you can succeed; all that needs to be done is to help ENSURE you succeed. That is where having a support system can help. The ones in your support system can do everything from point you in the correct direction and even ward off all the enablers and hazards that provide counterproductive measures.

No matter what, there is hope for you no matter what problems or issues you may face. Look to your support system to help ensure that you meet your goals and solve your problems. You can handle all of these issues on your own, but life is better and more enjoyable knowing there are others who have your best interests in mind and want you to succeed in life. So don't take support systems for granted- just be thankful there are people and things to help you succeed and solve your problems.





That concludes this brief blog post. Discussion time...

Do you have a support system? Are you part of a support system for someone else? Of what importance do you think support systems are?

I initially intended to post something regarding some fairly interesting news as to why I haven't been blogging too much lately. However, I decided to make this blog post just to kick off August 2014. I'm doing fine. I may discuss what's been going on with me lately in a "John's Corner" post. Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed this blog post, and I also hope you've found it useful (as I intended to make it). Thank you for reading!

In 1986, the Republic of Hungary unveiled the Hungaroring. It is the premier motor racing circuit in Hungary. This circuit is situated in a city about 11 miles (17.70 kilometers) away from beautiful Budapest in the city of Mogyoród, Hungary. This blog post is a look at the Hungaroring. I am pleased to welcome all of my racing fans worldwide to "John's Blog Space."


BEFORE I BEGIN...

Did you know that prior to this blog post, that I have not done a proper blog post on any race track since June 20, 2012? The last race track I blogged about was Moscow Raceway. So this is a category I have neglected for over two years! The last time I made mention to a race track was with Circuit of the Americas on November 20, 2012.

If you are from Hungary, I'd like to offer you a special hello and welcome to "John's Blog Space!"





--- Hungaroring ---

Let's take a look at this fine Hungarian motor racing circuit.

Hungaroring
^ from: www.allf1.info (links to image source) - The Hungaroring hosts a number of events ranging from national series to international racing series. The F1 Hungarian Grand Prix (or Magyar Nagydíj) is the signature race around the Hungaroring each year since the track's inception in 1986.

What I love most about this track is primarily the views of beautiful Budapest from some of the camera views. The track itself is one that I think has a great rhythm and character to it. This track measures 2.722 miles (4.381 kilometers) in length and has 14 turns. There is a chicane after Turn 3 primarily for motorcycle racing around the Hungaroring. It is one of few race tracks on today's Formula 1 World Championship schedule in which the circuit situated in a natural bowl.

The Hungaroring is a rather tricky circuit to navigate. There is plenty of character to it. It has a pretty good rhythm to this track you must establish as you try to lay down consistent laps or to try to properly treat each section. The trickiest sections to me are the first corner and the entire section going from Turn 5 to Turn 11.


Lap Record.

As of the date of this initial blog post, the lap record around Hungaroring was set by Michael Schumacher racing for Scuderia Ferrari in 2002. He posted a time of 1:16.207 around Hungaroring in 2002.


Video Lap.

Want to know what it is like to go around the Hungaroring? Check this out:

This is a greatly competitive old-school race track. I hope you enjoyed this one.
