I've been meaning to say his for a while, but, does anyone have any thoughts on Toei's apparent obsession with the name "Kaoru"? Off the top of my head I can think of three Kaorus (Kuuga, Agito, Shinken) and one kind-of Kaoru (Magi) which is kind of... a strange pattern, don't you think?

In one of my classes I have two Kaorus, one girl and one boy, and the boy wants to be a detective.

And, I'm bored, so have a meme. Which I'm sure you'll all give me a fandom for.

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom.

Happy New Year!
Happy January Birthdays!

Yay, Kobe! When I get back to my house, I am planning on making an actual post of all the stuff I did and stuff. You know, stuff. But, for right now...

So I was going to go places today, but then it turned out my clock stopped and subsequently didn't wake me up in time to catch the train. And then it was all cloudy all day. And then one horrible thing after the next happened on the internet. GEEZ.

Let me get the thing that's making me seethe right now off my chest:

Dear people who are tired of complaints of feminism in sentai,

I do not care if your squee is harshed, or if your escapism isn't quite so escapist, or if your oh-so intellectual self feels that someone is interrogating the text from the wrong perspective. I don't care if you don't see it, or if you feel that because we can't change it it doesn't matter if we complain, or if you asked your Japanese friend and she said she didn't think there was anything unusual. I particularly don't care if you are not interested in furthering discussion about paradigms and media that are harmful to women for any number of misogynist reasons. Trying to silence discussion when someone honestly expresses their feelings that something is making them uncomfortable is despicable.

No love,

And then, a meme I'm sure I'll get no requests for. OH WELL.

Inspired by Doctor Who's "Turn Left:" Pick one of my stories and tell me a point in the tale that you'd change. Something tiny (e.g. "and then Fay chose silver glitter instead of gold") or big (e.g. "and then Rose was arrested instead of Jack") and I'll tell you how that one difference would have altered the course of the entire story.

And I remember how to type. THE CROWD GOES WILD.

Happy August Birthdays! And also July... Sorry, July.

In Kyoto. Or, as my mother says, Kyoooooto. Got kind of rained out, but the ting is, my parents don't actually care. I don't know if we're going to get to Nara, though... And Nara wa shika de yuumei desu!

(Actually, speaking of flashbacks to Japanese 300, my mother LOVES Asahi Super Dry.)

No, but, uh, still love Kyoto. They said "Ookini" to us at the restaurants today and I was ridiculously happy.

I am also seriously digging the new Kamisen mini album. It's (only?) 6 songs, but each one is COMPLETELY different and it's really awesome. I wasn't going to buy it because, you know, Kamisen, but I'm glad I did.

Oh, right. Meme.

Ask me my fannish Top Five [whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

Uh, also, why has no one written Houka/Yamazaki-san? They would be adorable together, and Kai does heartlessly ditch her to muck about in fur coats. Not to mention, the only thing more hilarious than Houka would be Houka never leaving to get married because she is a lesbian. No, think about it. EDIT: I LIE! IT EXISTS. I am going to read it and leave [ profile] nomadskye a long comment probably involving an apology.


Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you something about the story that didn't make it onto the page.

Okay, it's kind of getting ridiculous that I haven't posted this and it's the 6th, particularly because I began it in December. orz

It's just, I've been busy *having friends*. Everyone came over to my house on New Years and we played board games and it was awesome. And then I made special soup for new years with NOODLES and we ate mochi. And then we had a Guitar Hero party and watched Dark Knight. And I watched Kouhaku and fell in love with Hikawa Kiyoshi all over again, and watched Countdown and made a kabillion gifs. ...I'll save all the stuff I watched for my next entry.

I was reading an essay involving Batman when I came upon this:

Bruce Wayne is a Prince. He is the scion of a family that has lived for generations right outside of Gotham City in Wayne Manor. The Waynes have always been wealthy and influential, raised with a sense of noblesse oblige.

(If you do not understand, please go watch Kamen Rider Kabuto and then read this again.)

I never did the year in review meme~! 4th Annual! Yes, let's! )

I finished Chinese! As long as I didn't tank the final (which I don't think I did) I got an A! I finished making that agedashi toufu. Unfortunately, I didn't finish *eating* it. Leftovers, anyone? I finished Kaitou St. Tail, but the end was kind of anti-climatic. I also finished

So I thought to myself, you know, it would be nice to finish all of 2008's prompts in 2008. I have four left I'm *going to write* ([ profile] estirose, [ profile] anzupeach, [ profile] mariko_azrael, [ profile] beckerbell, wait for me~~!), three other prompts from when people gave me more than one, and two stupid, stupid ideas. And a partridge in a pear tree. Which is exactly the same as the number of days left in the year. ...Hmm...

I also watched the Giragira finale. And can I just say: wagatomo kaGAmi had a picture of Tokyo Tower behind him and I laughed. Other than that, I'm not sure I have any thoughts. I *really* not in a writing mood~

This was, like, *totally* going to be a post, I promise. It just, uh... Well.

I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want (though I reserve the right to not answer or to answer evasively). Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including me) to ask you anything.

I'm sorry for the two entries so close to each other, but this is a very important question:

And I will get these other short things no one cares about out of the way )

Also, I have my microphone out, so I guess it's a good a time as any to do that voice post meme. Urgh, can't find it, guess I'll have to make it up:

Give me a topic and I will make a "voicepost" about it :D
capncosmo: Clueless (Default)
This meme actually sounds really interesting!

Give me two characters from two different fandoms with which I am familiar, and I will invent a relationship for them.


EDIT: It turns out by this I mean, "write a drabble." Who knew?

Computer situation is... not good. Aside from the known hardware problems, it seems my computer has stopped d/ling trojans, but instead is being slow and randomly closing programs. I think this (unfortunately) must mean I have a virus, but I *can't find it*. I've scanned my computer three times in the past few days, which returns nothing, and I've looked through all my running processes, but I can't find anything unaccounted for/suspicious. URGH. Especially since I originally thought it had to be something ActiveX, so I got rid of all of those I could find and disabled access to IE. *headdesk* I think something may have corrupted explorer, is the only thing I can think of now. Argh.

Spent last night finishing up Go-On, cracking passwords to Japanese fan sites, and then trying not to THROW MY COMPUTER OUT THE WINDOW. (I should seriously just call Dell. Especially since the insulation has ripped on my power cord again...) Consequentially, I only finished half the site I wanted to get through. ALAS. Ah, well, there's plenty of time yet.

I also.... Think I may be skipping Kiva in favor of Gao and 555 for the time being. I just... I'm not sure about following something weekly again. ALSO, excitingly, I saw some Jetman on Veoh, but all the numbers were pretty low, and I have the beginning of Jetman. *shrugs* Also! Need Hurricanger like BURNING. Gah, so much Sentai to watch! This is why I stopped for so long in the first place (-.-;)

But, so, Go-On. Conveniently split to not spoil my friends watching the subs (^^)/

And because no entry is complete without boybands: We were listening to V6 in the car (He agrees with me about "LIGHT IN YOUR HEART", even down to my feeling Ultraman's butt is a *little prominent* at a certain point), and he was like, "Is this actually them on the guitar?" I told him no, and then he said, "One of them should, because then he could get so many more chicks. I mean, come on, lead guitar." Aside from the fact that I think they all probably have more than enough chicks, my mind immediately went to Leader and I laughed.

...I just misread a banner ad as "Because LJ hates you."

I've been wanting to do a meme for a while now... So, here are all the "you-comment-I-respond" memes that appeared on my flist in the last 500 entries. (That would be back to August 25th.) Pick one! Pick all! But don't pick none, because there is nothing sadder than a meme with no answers. Which is why I'm giving you 7 choices.

7 Memes )

In other news, I got a twitter, mostly because I think I will either not use it OR abuse it mercilessly. Experiment GO! If you want to risk you sanity, please feel free (same username b/c I am creative), but. As a sample, first entry will be: I am being driven slowly insane by "Gimmick Game". Or rather, the second entry, as I believe I am obligated to make some kind of first entry first. *shrugs.

YAY for George Takei getting married!

STUPID. I spent so much time figuring out how to get Souta and Domon in the same place time yesterday, and then they didn't even do anything interesting, when what they should have been doing was hitting on girls together. Like in that episode of Sailor Moon where Rei's grandfather "teaches" Yuuichirou how to hit on girls. With about the same rate of success for Domon. And Souta would be all like, "Nah, that's okay," and Domon would be like, "What, are you scared or something? Get over here!" and the Souta would shrug and be like, "Okay, if you really want me to," and then, like, 15 girls would come over and Domon would be all like "TOTALLY UNFAIR I HATE YOU." But then they could bond over fighting a monster, the end, yay! And it wouldn't need to make sense, because it would be them trying to pick up chicks. CURSE MY NEED FOR EARTH LOGIC.

3. Post that to you journal with these instructions.

I turned over my calendar today, and it has tiny mogura teru-teru boozu in the corner. I didn't think this calendar could get any cuter, but I WAS WRONG. (I also upgraded the tissue-trick I learned from the otaku on D no Arashi to index cards, thereby protecting my calendar!!) (It's lucky AND happy, you know.)


Aaand, we're back. Inevitably, I have more to say about Himitsu no Arashi-chan! 7-8 and other sundry Arashi/TOKIO/K8 things )
Hokaben 6 )


Everybody's been doing that wishlist request meme, but I just don't have anything that anyone will ever write me. Or do I? )

In related news, I've been watching the sentai and general toku anonymemes, but I haven't seen any I think I can write yet D: Actually, a lot of people's fic wishlists are that way, too. Of course, I haven't checked yet today....

I got my first forwarded mail yesterday (Saturday?), but it wasn't my package (;_;). Williamsburg Post Office, don't try to deprive me of boybands!!!!1

Also, I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but in approximately 10 months I plan to leave this land for parts unknown. To that end, I'd like to see you RL people once more. So. You know. Let's do something, everybody!
