Happy Fourth of July and belated Canada Day, everyone! :D

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Probably. I don't remember.

Saw Chicago (the movie) the other day. I knew I'd been missing out by not having seen it before. Amazing, amazing movie. I love the decision to have the songs all be dream sequences - it allows for some awesome elaborate staging, and the songs themselves have this hypnotic quality that fits with that and with the whole unsettling feel of it. Basically, really good movie. Also Queen Latifah is hot, my god. *straight, really*

Now it's time for me to make some observations I've picked up recently about characters and Japanese pronouns.
- these got long )
- And the thing that inspired me to look up a few of these was the Homestuck Japanese translation project. Sooooo coooool man. It's not very far along yet, but check out the character pages to see how their pronouns and typing quirks are being translated. A couple highlights: each of the kids uses a different one of the four basic pronouns; Terezi's 413 thing translates perfectly due to the Japanese love of numerical wordplay (and her laugh becomes 1111, or "hihihihi"); and Nepeta calls herself "Nepeta-chan", which is adorable. Seriously, check it out. :D

One day I will make a list of every character in my favorite Japanese media and the pronouns they all use. :|a

Day 15: A character you’d be best friends with. )

Day 16: A character you would not get along with. )

No picspams today either. :( Too many characters, sorry. Not sure how I would go about it. Though if you have an idea you can let me know.

Four days till Connecticon!

Well, I finally beat the Elite Four in Pokémon Black, which I think is a pretty good reason for GETTING OFF MY BUTT AND POSTING EVER. Team:

lv. 52
lv. 51
lv. 51
lv. 52
lv. 51
lv. 50

with special guest member

lv. 51

I hope there is enough stuff to do afterward to keep me occupied for a while. As for the story, I don't want to spoil anything, but I did end up getting attached to N. He's not such a bad kid, all things considered. And no, I'm not just saying that because of how much I like the Black/White/N threesome. Ash/Iris/Cilan is better anyway.

My life otherwise is exceedingly uninteresting lately. Found out today I had an ear infection, which is about as exciting as it's been. No luck in the job search so far, though admittedly I haven't found very many places I can apply to. Otherwise, I've mostly just been reading TV Tropes and playing Pokémon for the past few days. Haven't even been checking tumblr. That's when you know things are boring.

I have, however, become quite obsessed with fanmixes recently. At some point it hit me that I can download the darn things, since I don't have to be afraid of downloading things from the internet anymore. And so I have been. A few to recommend, if I may:
Names - Homestuck, Dave/John (companion to the beautiful fic You Are Dave Strider and the sequel thereto)
Our Summer Skin - Hetalia, Spain/Belgium (very soft and summery and pretty and oh look also it is one of my hetalia otps)
Don't Be Afraid - Baccano, Jacuzzi Splot (jacccccuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzziiiii)

And I'll be lucky if I finish this meme before this month's out. :|

Day 08: Favourite couple. (WARNING: image-heavy) )

[ profile] theditz, keep an eye out - I found some more Ladd/Claire where I found some of these, and shall be updating my folder soon.

Oh right, also a thing I did was I had an anniversary on Monday. That was pretty cool I guess. ♥

"Canada tops, but America can't see him. He just thinks there's a bear floating above him while he feels things in the butt." - [ profile] hoyvinglavin64

Since HG's been getting after me to post that quote up there, I guess I might as well make an actual post. So, sorry for up and disappearing for a week like that. Finals pretty much took over my life, which I gather is a thing that happens to a lot of people, but it is still something I should apologize for. But anyway, they are over now. Turned in the last one, in true me fashion, three minutes before the 11:55 due date. :B

So I've been home for a couple days. Haven't done too much except go to club, see Yuki, and play Pokémon TCG. I've finally built (with some help, of course ♥) a deck that actually has a strategy behind it and that I can actually win with. :O The only problem is there's never anyone on Lackey who plays, so if any of you guys are into the Pokémon TCG, let me know! I need new battle partners. :B

Also, I realize this should be common sense, but if you have a Mac, do not get the trackpad wet. Seriously. I got mine wet the other day and it spazzed out at me intermittently for like an hour. And if you do happen to get it wet, the option to disable it is under System Preferences > Universal Access, not System Preferences > Trackpad. :|

Better finish up that song meme.

DAY 22: A song that someone has sung to you. )

DAY 23: A song that you cannot stand to listen to. )

DAY 24: A song that you have danced to with your best friend. )

DAY 25: A song you could listen to all day without getting tired. )

Well, we can all see how well that worked at getting me to post every day. So now I will start another one~! Yeah, yeah, I know, but hopefully without school I'll actually be able to keep up with it this time. Besides, I need to convince [ profile] birdboy2000 to do it. So here everyone, have a Digimon meme! :D

Day 01: How old were you when you first discovered Digimon? )
(List of days is here.)

Also, expect an AB con report to come... sometime. Whenever I can actually get myself to do anything. :(

Sorry for disappearing for a few days. I was trying to get my new internet to cooperate. It is vaguely consistent now, so I will take what I can get.

So, umm. At college, in the middle of orientation. Whether I think college was a good idea or a huge mistake fluctuates with my mood. Right now I think it was probably pretty okay. This will change.

I always feel like a huge fake when I am talking to new people. Like I pretend to be an interesting person, but eventually they are going to ask me some kind of question that will expose how I am not really interesting at all. It is very nerve-wracking and I would like to just make some friends already and get it out of the way.

I think I've caught up on all my flist entries now. Going to eat.

Umm also THIS IS FOR YOU [ profile] min19

Spent basically the entirety of the last two days watching every Pixar movie with most of my friends. It was huge amounts of fun. I'm going to miss those guys. :(

As is common when watching Pixar movies, I kept noticing things that I hadn't the first however many times around, but the standout this time was that A Bug's Life is an extended take on the fable of the ant and the grasshopper. I really don't know why it took me this long to think of that. It's still cool though. :B I also cried at Jessie's backstory scene for the first time. It's the song. Stupid song. *bawls*

Now, a meme.

Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

Hetalia, Ookami-san, Kuroshitsuji, Lost )

Also, RIP Satoshi Kon.

Ship meme~

1. Think of up to 20 'ships you support
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the 'ships as they can

I think I'm supposed to say how many are from which fandom, but I think in this case it might be a bit too obvious. I mean, they're already super easy as it is. So uh

Good luck~ )

I need to ship more femslash. OTL
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: (Default)
I'm back! :D

7. Character you have most in common with )

8. Character you look like the most )

9. Character you’d bring home to your parents )

Also, there is nothing I don't love about the Hetalia dub clips. Except the lack of the name "Little Italy" for Chibitalia. But that is minor. They are wonderful. ACCEEEEEEEEENTS
vethica: (italy bff)
...why does this make so much sense. It's not exactly what I was looking for, but dang. Who knew that Hetalia and JCA were two great tastes that went great together?

(Maybe I will stop making a million posts about JCA sometime ever. But don't count on it.)

So I had a dream where Christopher Columbus and Sadako/Samara from The Ring were BFFs. I don't... I don't even know anymore. But then I had one about Rick Murray, so it was all good.

Didn't finish Genshiken in time for vacation to be over. I think I made a valiant effort, though. It's definitely the most episodes of one series I've seen under my own power. (Yes, I know how sad that is.) Also, continuing to make progress in Fire Emblem. I'm on chapter 12 and no one's died yet. ^_^ (Yes, that took entirely too many restarts.)

Pokémon fans on my flist: you might want to check out [ profile] birdboy2000's recently completed fic, Love, War, and Pokemon Battles. And no, I'm not just reccing it because I'm biased. :P I've read the thing and it is epic and well-written and worldbuildy and long, and I don't think enough people will read it and that saddens me. So. Yes. Check it out maybe.

And, uh, Hetalia fans, you should watch SkadiPirate's videos. They are good and have good music.
vethica: (italy bff)
Things that have made me ridiculously happy in the past 24 (more or less) hours:
- Hetalia Day 2009 with my dork friends
- Seeing the Astro Boy movie immediately afterward with said dork friends
- Szayel's dub voice fffffff
- The answer to the New York Times acrostic (if you've done it you'll know why)

Also, I have been playing Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia a whole lot lately. (And I still have to actually pay Momo for it at some point. ._.;;) I really like this game. It's not a "true" Pokémon game, sure, but it's gotten me to care about the storyline and characters more than any other Pokémon game's done. And the writing is hilarious. If any Pokémon fans out there are looking for something to occupy themselves while waiting for HG/SS, you could really do a lot worse.
vethica: (Default)
I guess at some point I probably ought to greet my new friends from the Pokémon friending meme. Hey there, all four of you! I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. :D Or something.

Apparently this meme is going around. Or was. Whatever, I'm always slow at these things anyway.

Leave me a comment and I will give you a letter. Then, write 10 things that you love starting with that letter. Post the list in your journal. Give out letters to your commenters in return.

I wasn't actually tagged, so I can't write a list myself. But uh. Y'all can feel free to give me a letter if you want. :B

Edit: [ profile] deathlyh7212007 gave me the letter H. )

I have too many fandoms that start with H but GOSH DANG IT they are all amazing so I had to put them in.
vethica: (Default)
It's recently come to my attention what an embarrassing percentage of my thoughts is spent on attractive fictional-type guys. Which maaay not be the best thing to write about now that I have an attractive real-type boyfriend who reads this thing. So, uh, let's see what else is floating around in my head.

Okay, how about some brief thoughts on Bleach 224? So brief they don't even warrant a cut. )

Stuff got long, so have cuts for the rest too. This one is about Bleach also. )

Hetalia shipping? In my TMBG? )

Aaand more Disgaea. ) Yeah, so I once again exhort you guys to play Disgaea. It even makes leveling fun. Plaaay iiit.
vethica: (Default)
Yet another meme, because I have no life, and also apparently never update LJ anymore.

RULES: Comment and I'll LJ stalk you to find THREE FANDOMS you apparently love. And then you answer these questions about them!

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

TMBG are apparently a fandom now. :P )

And, as is traditional, I conclude with something totally irrelevant:
"In the Watchmen: The End is Nigh game, the NPC thugs taunt Nite Owl by referring to Rorschach as 'your little girlfriend.'"

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

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

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )
vethica: (italy bff)
I'm sorry, but if Hetalia does the entirety of "Cleaning Out the Storage" in English with those godawful accents, I may have to watch it on mute or something. Which is a shame, because it's a really powerful scene. It's like, I mean, I guess it makes sense to have countries actually speaking their own language, but then if they can't actually speak it very well, it's a little hard to suspend disbelief. Plus, why isn't Lithuania speaking Lithuanian then? "THEN I'LL GO MAKE SOME. COFFEE FOR YOU" indeed.

Also, Sato finally evolved. Just, y'know, if anyone cared. Also I hit 200 hours, and caught Cresselia, and discovered the wonders of the Underground. The Wonder Underground. Currently trying to get all the fossil Pokés - I've got Omanyte, Kabuto and Lileep so far. Lol I don't know why I'm going on about Pokémon. Probably because I forgot how to actually say anything important. :|

OH WAIT. Somehow I didn't know before about this, but the Haruhi Suzumiya dub dubbed God Knows. And it sounds good. Yes. YES. I love you dubs.
vethica: (Default)



lol go to bed already :\

All 20 minutes left of it, anyway. ._.;;
vethica: (italy bff)
I know I really shouldn't be squeeing so much over this pairing, considering it's from a cheesy '90s cartoon that's only good anymore for making hilarious YTPs. But. Um. Sonic and Robotnik get married (sequence starts 5:43ish). While Sonic is in drag. And Sonic kisses Robotnik five times. And then licks cake off him. @_@ And that's not even getting into all the show's other gay implications, like Tails calling a guy hot in the same episode. Or all the totally, totally canon Scratch/Grounder. "You gorgeous hunk of high-tech" indeed. Oh, AoStH. If you keep being this slashy, I may actually have to start watching.

Also, I'm sure old news is old, but it looks like we're getting some Scandinavia up in the Hetalia anime! Including Norway, Denmark, and Iceland! Which means they're actually getting canon personalities! Awesome! The only worrisome thing is that I've seen everyone's voice actors listed except Finland. I hope that doesn't mean he's not going to be there. I mean you can't have Sweden without Finland! *waves SuFin flag*

Okay I will stop talking now.
vethica: (Default)
I am probably more excited than I should be that my limited knowledge of Japanese is now at the point where I can mangle certain YouTube Poop lines. ここに 地図が あります。どこに いきたいですか?FEAR IT, YO.

Have a meme I got from a place.
Pick six of your favorite fandoms and answer the questions (don't look at the questions before you choose the fandoms). For "favorite" read "current".

1. Bleach
2. Hetalia
3. The World Ends With You
4. Sandman
5. Lost
6. Kuroshitsuji

I bet you're really curious to see what happens. (Warning: contains fangirling.) )
vethica: (Default)
I would like to comment on how angry it makes me when people I respect make fun of anime nerds and furries. So here goes: It makes me angry when people I respect make fun of anime nerds and furries.

Now on to a meme.

Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

Yuki gave me: TV Tropes, Neopets, Pokémon Colosseum, genderbending, Canada )

Also, unrelated, but congratulations to Mr. Ledger on the Oscar. Not that there was any doubt he'd win, but still, he deserved it.
