I realized that I'm really bad at making friends. It's hard for me to do it in real life and next to impossible online. I'm not sure I've ever done the latter, except for those guys on Neopets back in the day. LJ friends, I love you guys, but most of us aren't that close, right? I am so bad at talking to people. I hate being like that. x_x

Also I wish there were people to play me in online Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokémon TCG. I need to improve my decks. :(

And, because no post is complete without a meme, stolen from [ profile] wraithi:
Character Guessing Meme :B )

Mix of old and new fandoms, but mostly old because my newer ones would probably be too obvious. With the end result that most of these ended up terribly bland, but then I am a bland person. I think I've been obsessive about all of these at one point or another, though. Also I tried to pick ones where my favorite character and the character I have a crush on were not the same, but some of those got through. Whoops.

I also hate not having anything to post anymore.
vethica: (Default) I need to remember how to make posts that don't involve memes.

I started playing Heart Gold again. Goal is to beat the Elite Four, but I can't even get there because of how impossible it is to catch Ho-Oh. I tried everything. Even Down+A has failed me. Any advice?

Also, Hinata was cuter with short hair. Actually, everyone was cuter before the timeskip.* Actually, everything was better before the timeskip. Yeah, I remember when Naruto was actually good. Good times.

* Except Gaara. Mullet yesss.

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.

Apparently I have some internet on this vacation. I must use these powers for good!

...And by good I apparently mean whining about Shonen Jump. Eh, close enough.

So, SPHFWLKaiB finally showed up in Bleach. You can probably imagine my reaction. But. Butbutbut. They spelled his name as one word - Szayelaporro, like that. I know that's probably closer to the original, and since the speech bubbles are so narrow it shows up as hyphenated anyway, which is almost like two words. So I really have no reason to be upset about this. But idk, man, I just think it looks dumb. Some other spellings they have that bug me are "Nnoitora" (I know it's not that different, but still) and (are you ready for this one?) "Cirucci Sanderwicci". Sanderwicci? What is she, a BLT? Dude, "Thunderwitch" is possibly the coolest last name ever. You can't screw that up. D: You know what, I think I am just going to be one of those people I hate who ignores canon and spells people's names however she darn well pleases. Like heck I'm giving up "Thunderwitch".

While I'm here, I suppose I should say something briefly about the other mangas in Shonen Jump. Because I can.

Naruto: I really like how Naruto calls Yondaime "Pa". They could have gone with "Dad" so easily, but I like "Pa" better. It gives him character. And it's cute. Pain was a cute kid.

One Piece: Nami/Vivi is so canon. Mr. 2 Bon-chan is amazing.

Ultimo: O.A. must love this series. There is no way Jealousy is a boy.

Yu Yu Hakusho: Natsume is surprisingly attractive. I like seeing all those people from forever ago.

Tegami Bachi: I would probably like this series better if the people didn't have such stupid names. Two words: Jiggy Pepper. Niche makes it worth reading, though. She's great. Also I like the term "Letter Bee". Reminds me of Smellerbee. Or Linda Ellerbee.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: I don't care.

Also I am going to see Wicked tonight yay.

Speaking of Disney movies (we were doing that, right?): I know I'm a loser who only saw about four* of them during her childhood proper, and it's really sad that it took me until yesterday to watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But dang, that is a good movie. I think it just elbowed its way right in there under The Lion King as one of my favorite Disney movies. I mean, the music alone is excellent, but then you add in the characters and the plot and everything, and, wow. Suffice it to say that it's becoming my latest short-term obsession. And I need to acquire the soundtrack. OF COURSE I DON'T NEED TO TELL YOU GUYS THIS STUFF THOUGH BECAUSE YOU ALL HAD NORMAL CHILDHOODS. 8D (Although I have no idea how this movie got away with a G rating. IMO some of the stuff it deals with really isn't for kids. Which, y'know, is part of why I like it. But anyway.)

* Three if you don't count The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh as an actual movie.

Also, since I may not get a chance to post something later, I'm leaving again tomorrow for vacation. I'll be back next Tuesday. And then school starts. =_=

P.S. Apparently in Japanese, the @ sign is known as "naruto". This should not be so funny.
vethica: (Default)
Okay so. I made that Sound Five comm I was talking about: [ profile] sound_five! Still working on it as we speak, so if you catch this post early it might look a little spare. Regardless, all three of you who watch Naruto (and like the Sound Five, natch) should join! :D And spread the word. Totally spread the word. It needs it.
vethica: (Default)
You know, I've never really held my childhood sacred. So when people do things like Rule 34 Pokémon or whatever, that doesn't bother me. But finding out that Abraham Lincoln thought blacks were inferior to whites? That's really depressing. D:

Also, I know I'm really late to the party with this like with everything else, but new fandom: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Go, watch. It's short - only three acts - and really awesome. Great music, great acting, heck, it's Joss Whedon. You really don't need any other reason to see it.

And now I'll do a meme.

(Stolen from [ profile] athousandwinds, who I found... man, I don't even remember.)

List 12 characters from different fandoms first. (No cheating!) Then answer the questions under the cut.

1. Szayel Aporro Granz (Bleach)
2. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
3. Darth Maul (Star Wars)
4. Mello (Death Note)
5. Rock Lee (Naruto)
6. Lloyd Asplund (Code Geass)
7. Rick Murray (Degrassi)
8. Kirby (Kirby)
9. Desmond Hume (Lost)
10. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)
11. Phoenix Wright (Phoenix Wright)
12. Hal "Otacon" Emmerich (Metal Gear Solid)

The questions under the cut )

Be warned: I've found a community ([ profile] fandom_memes) full of these things, so don't be surprised if you get spammed by them over the next while.

Long meme is looong )

That took me an hour x_x
vethica: (Default)
Um, okay. You know Lloyd from Code Geass? (For reference, he's the white-haired fellow in the first bit of this video.) You hear that voice? That's GAARA. XD (Also, Lelouch is Ichigo and Suzaku is Sasuke...but Gaara.)

And recently I've been playing Phoenix Wright, the current best game ever. So when I go looking for stuff on the Internet, what should I find but...

Q: Then from Naruhodo's point of view, Mitsurugi is...
T [Shu Takumi, director]: He'd probably say he's become a pretty cute guy. (laugh)



Also, this = cutest picture d'awwww. And, um... Edgeworth in a frilly apron who seems to have a shirtless picture of Phoenix. This is apparently official art. *currently in fangirl heaven, brb*
vethica: (Default)
Apparently there is a tree called the Garry Oak. I'm sorry. That's hilarious.

Also, I guess none of the other language Pokéraps changed the order, although I'm still not sure why. But I really like the weird voices they do in the French one. :\

And, uh, apparently I forgot to post Leap Year birthday wishes to the two characters whose birthdays I can actually remember. Sorry, Kabuto and Hani-sempai. Happy fifth birthdays or whatever.
vethica: (Default)
I have a lot of stuff to say at some point, but right now there is only one question I must ask:

Who would win in a fight between Aizen, Gai, and Chuck Norris?

Please explain fully.
vethica: (Default)
Oh. My. God.

"Still Alive" (the Portal end credits song) is by Jonathan Coulton.

Pinch me.

(btw, O.A.? Here's that JiraNaru fic. :) )
vethica: (Default)
It's a Naruto character meme )

I am...Itachi. o_O With a little Hinata and Naruto. Wow. Raven's probably gonna kill me.

And since I didn't want this artPad to go to waste, I'm posting it here (gaze upon its majesty).

...I really have nothing to post.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along. Just tell me if you want me to question your interests.

animutations - Weird Flash animations that often contain mondegreens and Colin Mochrie. Invented by the ever-irrepressible Neil Cicierega.
bob - is the best name ever. Think about it - it's so all-purpose. Bob is also the deity of Bobism, which [ profile] akasunano_usagi and I made up.
darth maul - A Sith Lord from Star Wars, whose first and only appearance was in The Phantom Menace. He has red and black tattoos all over. He wields a double-ended lightsaber. He's pretty sick.
genderswap - Something that occasionally occurs in fanfiction. Actually, there are two kinds: when characters suddenly change gender or when it's an AU where they've been the opposite gender for their whole life. In the first, I like to see how they react to suddely being the opposite gender. (I like when weird-type stuff happens to characters. :\) The second type can be great if the author plans it out well. Unfortunately, I have yet to read such a one.
host club - This comes from Ouran High School Host Club, an anime. (I would have put "ouran high school host club" as an interest, but it has five words. D: ) The Host Club is a group of attractive boys the sole purpose of which is to charm girls. I.e., fangirl heaven.
sock puppets - Not the kind you use when you troll, but actual puppets made from socks. This is a long-running inside joke between myself and [ profile] akasunano_usagi. When I found out that Sasori from Naruto was a puppet, I asked if he was a sock puppet. She claimed that he was a marionette. Now we constantly argue over which is better.
your mom - I say it a lot, generally in nonsensical contexts. It's probably a bad habit. [ profile] tymaporer has picked up on this habit, and now it's a bit of a running joke between us as well. Same with "your face".

Camp was fun and I miss it. So many cool people. So many cool stuff. ;_;

The meme questions! [SPOILERS FOR LOST] )

boring artpads )

Also, if anyone had any doubts of how much of a freak I am, I have cast the main characters of The Office to the song "Piano Man". Yyyep.
(Piano Man = Jim; old man = David Brent; John = Tim; Paul = Dawn; Davy = Gareth; waitress = Pam; businessman = Michael; manager = Dwight.)
vethica: (Default)
I have some words to say about LOST )

This is the best wiki article ever. This comes in second.

Also, Naruto fanfic rec: Switched! I love bodyswap stories, and this one certainly delivers. It starts out wonderfully sane. By the end, it had degenerated into...well, I won't spoil it, but a bunch of completely implausible things, and here's the best part: it still remains completely sane. It's not very long, but it is very good. Read it? ^_^

Anime Boston

So I guess the lesson here is, memes need to be their own post. (O.A., I'm surprised you didn't get #5. Or #2, for that matter.)

Hanataro (from Bleach) is "Dr. Mario". Byakuya (from same) is "Corrugated Cardboard Head". Itachi is "Poke Man". And Usa-chan is Naruto's mom. Confused yet?

Also, everyone can be connected to Edward Elric in six easy steps.

Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? )

Quick American Idol opinions: I really like Sanjaya's hair, but he either needs to pick it up (a LOT) or get voted out. I like the two Chris's, too. Phil, like the similarly bald Chris Daughtry, seems destined to be a fan favorite. And Blake is just amazing.
vethica: (Default)
I was probably gonna post something, from school or something...but I forgot it. If I was.

And in Spanish class, we were doing this activity where we were supposed to draw the first thing we thought of, and I drew Desmond. Obsessed much? :P And it was cool because we were doing this story where people took turns putting whatever they drew into a story, and I was like, "Desmond entró y gritó: —¡TODOS VAN A MORIR!" Even if someone did think he was Sirius Black. (whut?)

Speaking of, anyone who has ever read or seen or both Naruto or Harry Potter or (preferably) both needs to read THIS FIC. Right NOW, mister.

And since it's been a while since the last and I'm in love with the shuffle function, here's that one song meme. )
