So, I'm still trying to get back into the hang of this "posting regularly" thing. I'm not quite sure I've mastered it yet, but hey, anything more than one post every 3 months is progress for me. :B I was actually going to post yesterday as well, but I wasn't feeling so good and also I had to work on my final for my Fairy Tales and Gender class (a retelling of The Snow Queen with lesbians, woooo). But I am done with that now (the draft, anyway), and also I'm planning to start something that will hopefully get me posting a lot more from now on! But before I can tell you that story, I have to tell you this story.

this story is the Anime Boston con report btw )

Wow that was horrendously long. Kudos to you if you read all of it. Anyway, here is that thing I was talking about that will hopefully revolutionize my posting habits (i.e., make them existent)! :D



{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


I know I don't normally do stuff like this, but I saw [livejournal.com profile] burningqueen doing it and I was inspired. :D My topic is going to be 100 of my fandoms. It would probably sound better as something like "100 fandoms I am or have been in", but I never really leave a fandom, just kind of drift away from it for a while (which is what led me to think of the topic in the first place). I'm going to be posting them in alphabetical order, and I wanted to get the first one up tonight, but we'll see how much energy I have after writing this big long post. But if this works out, prepare yourselves for a whole lot more entries from me. I think you're going to like them. c:

They don't tell you how hard it is to get back into posting on Livejournal after month-long hiatuses (hiatūs?). They should, but they don't. And the fact that I have things like Tumblr, Gaia, Lang-8, Sims, and, of course, schoolwork to take my mind away from it doesn't help matters.

If it makes you feel any better, my life hasn't been all that interesting. I've been in school, studying basically the same things I was studying last year. I'm now a linguistics minor in addition to a Japanese major, so there's that. Also, there is the fact that I will be studying abroad in Japan next year. Which, ngl, is pretty awesome. :D

I haven't really gotten into any new fandoms either. Except ASoIaF/Game of Thrones and Gankutsuou, which both happened this summer... yeesh, it's been that long. (e: OH WAIT I FORGOT LYCHEE LIGHT CLUB wow I suck. Yeah, Lychee Light Club too. Also that reminds me to say hello to my new f!s friending meme friends [livejournal.com profile] astrokittie and [livejournal.com profile] tasogare_n_hime. Hi! c:) I haven't left any of my old fandoms either, and I just got bit bad by the Baccano! bug so if I start posting regularly on here again it will probably involve a lot of squeeing about that show. Just like old times. :D

Which I suppose is as good a segue as any. I'd originally planned to make a post a couple weeks ago to tell y'all to go vote in [livejournal.com profile] animetournament, but then I never did and by now we're down to the top 12 and my boy Jacuzzi got knocked out of the running so it's a bit late to make any exhortations to that effect. You can still vote though if you want to. :B No, the main reason for my post right now is this: who all is going to Anime Boston? Because I know some of you live around here or at least make it here for cons, and let's face it, we need to meet up. The really cool thing is I'll be cohosting a panel this year ("How Is This Con Different From All Other Cons? An Otaku Passover"), so if you want to stop by and say hi, I will be the one up there who doesn't have facial hair. Or if you just see me around the con, I'll probably be cosplaying Graham Specter all three days, and if you don't know who that is, look for the giant wrench. :B

So there is that, and also, I guess, what is going on in your lives even if you are not going to AB. I HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO END LJ POSTS

Ughh, I'm sorry for falling behind again guys. I have been not terribly smart lately and it is not fun. :c On the bright side, I did friend some particularly awesome people in the f!s friending meme. Hi there, [livejournal.com profile] baka_tenshi, [livejournal.com profile] judo_creature, [livejournal.com profile] kyoto_idol, [livejournal.com profile] margerydaw_s2, [livejournal.com profile] necro_staff, [livejournal.com profile] retraux, [livejournal.com profile] skaiasthelimit, [livejournal.com profile] tari_silmarwen, [livejournal.com profile] technophile, and [livejournal.com profile] theditz! Enjoy your stay. :D

Now a beliefs quiz that I took! Beliefs quiz results under the cut. :B )

Aww yiss this quiz knows me so well. :D

...I guess I should stop putting off catching up on the song meme, huh.

DAY 17: A song that makes you want to dance. )

DAY 18: A song you love but rarely listen to. )

DAY 19: The first song alphabetically in your iPod/iTunes. )

DAY 20: The last song alphabetically in your iPod/iTunes. )
vethica: (Default)
Wow, dang I missed a lot of days. I was planning on catching up on Thursday, but Anime Boston ate my entire weekend. Whoops. AB was pretty spectacular, though. I had a lot of fun. Will hopefully post a con report within the next couple weeks. :D Also Passover ends in a few hours and classes end in a few days so I am feeling pretty okay right now. Just have to get through these last couple homeworks and then finals. Yosh~

I also started watching Madoka today. Yes, finally. It is good so far, but would probably be better if I did not know so many spoilers. :( Still, I like it. The characters seem pretty cool and I love the art style and I want Madoka's house. Kyubey's voice is annoying though.

*deep breath*

DAY 09: A song that makes you hopeful. )

DAY 10: A song by your favorite band. )

DAY 11: A song on the soundtrack of your favorite movie. )

DAY 12: The last song you heard. )

DAY 13: A song that reminds you of a former friend. )

DAY 14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend. )
vethica: (Default)
Whoa, sorry about not updating for the past few days. On Sunday I had to catch up on all my homework that I didn't do while doing the play, and then yesterday I went home for the first night of Passover. Apparently my school has actual good Passover food, so I may starve less than usual! This is exciting. :D

The second performance went okay. We had a tougher audience and some more lines got messed up, but it was still pretty good. I just wish more people had come. :( There was, however, more concrete talk of doing this again next year, which would be so awesome. We're discussing doing As You Like It or maybe Shrew, but I'm still holding out hope for Twelfth Night. >_>

DAY 06: A song that reminds you of a best friend. )

DAY 07: A song that reminds you of the past summer. )

DAY 08: A song that reminds you of your "first love." )

And also it is getting to be about that time, so I figured I should ask you guys. Anyone else going to Anime Boston? :D
vethica: (awesome)
Otakon report! (WARNING: LONG) )

So all in all, Otakon was pretty awesome. ^_^

Loot! )

A meme! (LESS LONG) )

I think this entry has set the record for most tags in a post on my LJ.
vethica: (awesome)
Flashing picture warning )

HEY GUYS

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AS EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING AS THIS GUY IS ABOUT TAB

BECAUSE THAT IS HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT MS PAINT ADVENTURES (WHICH INCIDENTALLY HAS THE TAB GUY IN IT)

IT IS EPIC

Also I know Anime Boston was a month ago but chronological order is for chumps )

Today was a lousy day. Kinda had a breakdown. I hate lousy days. x_x

At least it's almost time for Anime Boston. Maybe our costumes will even be done. *goes to plan schedule*

hot things

Tuesday's episode of Lost was very relevant to my interests. By which I mean Richard + beard + long hair + speaking Spanish = unf. Too bad we will probably never see that version of him again. Why do all the hot guys in Lost either die or shave. :(

Also, speaking of interests relevance, Grell. Just... Grell. And the other guys too in that picture but fffff. GRELL I WILL MARRY YOU OKAY.

In not incoherent fangirl news, Anime Boston's in a week. All I still have to do costume-wise is finish my pants, make my shirt, make a hair ribbon, figure out how to do my hair, get some shoes, get a non-moth-eaten blanket, get a white T-shirt that is smaller than an XL, and like get some flip-flops too or something. And find my camera. Other than that I am good right? :B

Oh wait I lied more incoherent fangirling
JCA SECRET IN F!S :D :D :D

I've had a lot of stuff to post and it was too much to post in one post so this post will only post part of it. And yes, I am trying to set a world record for the number of times saying "post" in one sentence. And the number of tags on this post.

First, a meme stolen from HG:

Make a list of 10 fandoms you are in/things you like and then have your friends list guess who you think is the most attractive/would date/sleep with/etc. Cross them off as they're guessed.

1. Bleach Szayel ([livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64)
2. Kuroshitsuji Grell ([livejournal.com profile] alex_romao)
3. Lost
4. Hetalia
5. Nolanverse Batman
6. Sandman Dream ([livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64)
7. Phoenix Wright Jake Marshall ([livejournal.com profile] alex_romao)
8. US presidents
9. Yu Yu Hakusho Kurama ([livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64)
10. Star Wars Obi-Wan (Episode II) ([livejournal.com profile] hoyvinglavin64)

And, like HG's, most of these'll be super easy. ~*~so predictable~*~

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )
vethica: (Default)
First of all, LESS THAN 24 HOURS TILL AB. *hyperventilates* Although I'm not really the most excited right now 'cause I realized I spent a fair amount of time/money on my costumes and they're pretty crappy. Oh well. Costumes are done except Light's shoes, btw. On the plus side, there'll be another Death Note photoshoot on Sunday (although... it may be during Cosplay Chess), and we have a team for Hyakunin Kuizu, which I've never done before, so if we get in, that should be cool. :B

Okay, something else. I just found out that Jian Ghomeshi (formerly of Moxy Früvous (which is a good band, btw; check them out if you like Barenaked Ladies)) is such a cutie. I mean, look at the guy. He's like Zach Braff if someone injected cuteness into him. Also, you know who else famous person is attractive? Johannes Brahms. For serious. (When he was younger, anyway.) Stop being so cute, famous dead composers. :|

Also, I just found out that Ash Ketchum's name in French is Sacha. For some reason that's really cute.
vethica: (Default)
Okay, I know I have been outraged about a lot of stuff in here lately. But this one is seriously legitimate: the girl player character in HG/SS will not be the one from Crystal. I - what? Seriously? No. I dunno if it's just because she was the first girl or what, but the Crystal girl is my favorite out of every player character. They're not replacing the guy (although imo his new design is pretty terrible), so why replace her? Plus, I really, really dislike the new one's design as well. Look at those overalls. She looks like Mario! And what's with that hat? Fffffff I know I shouldn't get so worked up about something like this, but I'm really crushed here. I guess if I can't get used to her in the end I'll just play as the guy, new design notwithstanding. :\

Plus the Death Note photoshoot's been moved to 12 on Friday, so we won't be able to even catch the tail end. And Vaarsuvius from Order of the Stick stopped being hot. And I'm tired. So yeah, pretty bad times all around.
vethica: (Default)
I was going to make this part of a larger post, because I'm pretty sure no one cares, but then I realized that I had nothing else to post. So, uh, Lucas is out for AB and Tenho is in. Lucas's shirt was pretty impossible to find anyway (somehow ;A;), so this is probably for the best. I can find all Tenho's stuff on Amazon or probably in a store and he doesn't even need a wig. ~*~*~LAZY COSPLAY~*~*~

Ummm. So yeah.

EDIT: More TWEWY bidness (spoilers for Another Day?) )
vethica: (Default)
I've been having some thoughts recently - a rare occurrence - so I decided to commemorate it with an LJ post. An LJ post about my newest fandoms.

So the other day I got The World Ends With You. )
So, a couple questions. First, O.A., are we still on for Ness and Lucas? Because if so, we'd better get cracking, considering Anime Boston's getting closer every month. If not, well...
And second, is there a site like Court Records for TWEWY? You know, a complete repository with all the sprites and artwork and everything? I do know there's a wiki, and that might be what I'm looking for, but I could only take a perfunctory look so as not to avoid spoilers. If there's a better site, someone let me know.

I've also recently begun reading Vampire Knight, and, inevitably, I happened to spot a few similarities with a certain other popular vampire series that shall not be named. However, I'm pleased to report that the comparison is favorable to Vampire Knight. )

Also, Happy New Year.

BOSTON )

Overall, I don't think I had quite as much fun as last year, but that may just be because the novelty's worn off somewhat. :( But not quite as much as really really awesome is...still pretty darn awesome. :D
vethica: (Default)
...So I haven't posted in two weeks, which is approximately forever in internet time. Sorry 'bout that. Homework's a butt. -_-;;

Obligatory leading-up-to-Anime Boston checklist )

...I think that's it. :D

On a related note: THREE DAYS *spaz*
vethica: (Default)
Anime Boston
Status: Awesome )

As in, "Oh cwap, I fell down the stairs." yes, it is one word. sthu Usa-chan.

So Kabuto-kun is a leap year baby, eh? Just like Hani-sempai. I didn't know they had anything in common. Wow, that's...sorta creepy.

As you may have noticed, Anime Boston is getting closer, and I have made absolutely zero progress on my proposed Rock Lee costume. That's partly because I'm not sure where to start. I know several of you out there are veteran cosplayers - anyone got any tips for a first-timer?

And because I need something to rant about: I'M GOING TO BED TOO LATE. RANT RANT RANT.
vethica: (Default)
Seriously. Thing. It. Best. Anime Boston. W00t. I bought a shirt and some stuff at the art auction and a sketch of Kurama. What was really awesome was just having all these people who were just as crazy as us all in one place. Bonded over a common interest. Or somethin'.

Next year I want to do it right. You know, go the whole weekend, and everyone comes, and we all cosplay, and maybe do a skit or something. I should start planning my costume. I wanna be Lee.

So...I'm at Tyma's now and we're doing...stuff we do at Tyma's.

Tyma: *reading out loud from quizilla.com* Which Gaia NPC are you most combatible with? Which one do I wanna fight? Huh? *pretends to be confused*

- My friend Monkey. We were watching Forrest Gump yesterday, and that's one of the things he came up with. We also developed a fascination with the words (try and imagine these in an Alabama accent) "Forrest Gum*p*", "mud" (and houses made of mud that were "dirt cheap"), "Viet-nam" (flat a), and "Greenbow, Ala-BAMA!", as well as helicopters and Lieutenant Dan looking like/being a pirate.

...In other news, I'm going to Anime Boston today with HG and Shad and some others, and Christopher Lee turns 84. Because Christopher Lee is actually me, because I'm Saruman, so that also makes me Count Doofus Dooku. But I'm also Darth Maul (and presumably, by extension, Ray Park) and Harrison Ford and Mos Def. Oh, and Rupert Grint, which makes me Ron, which makes me Dumbedore, which makes me Dom, which is so weird that I am going to stop thinking about it right now.
