Looks like this blog is basically dead. There were already issues with the theme I was using not working correctly anymore, and now that Wordpress has updated their editor, it's pretty much broken. The old entries are still showing up correctly, so all the content is still there, but you can no longer embed Youtube videos with a free account, and I also can't get the picture uploads to work anymore, possibly because they're using some dumb script that won't work in Chrome.
I'll check back in on it in a few weeks to see if they've fixed it, but it's not looking good. And since my Youtube channel gets way more attention anyway, it's not really a tough decision.
Dang, that's a shame that Wordpress is so janky. A bummer to see another photo and writing blog go away, even though I'm sure Youtube is more efficient and effective for you. I guess I'm just outdated in my general dislike of video reviews (mostly due to the over-hyper sensationalist personas that most youtube people seem to adopt; your tone is great!) Like Leon I'm happy to watch your videos though.

Okay, that may have been a bit of a premature hissy fit. As it turns out, the majority of the issues were fixed by logging out and back in, and I was able to put together the Zero Grizis Dark Form review more or less as intended, just without the Youtube embed.
Things are still super janky, but it's reasonably workable, so I guess I'll still be updating the blog, just, you know, with gritted teeth and rolling my eyes a lot.
Here's the new post, but it doesn't really contain anything I haven't already said on Youtube or posted here, i.e. the pictures. Thanks for the kind words, guys, I'm pretty emotionally attached to the stuff that's accumulated over the years on the blog, and it's nice to hear it's appreciated.

Did another NJR review. I actually bought this one because I'm thinking about selling my HMM BL Leon, so i was checking prices on eBay and stumbled across the NJR version at a somewhat reasonable price, and, well, you know.
