I just got really overexcited about finding downloads for these two Korean songs about cats and I thought 'Maybe there's a whole subgenre of k-pop which is about cats!!!' so I went to google and there's not, but I did find links to these videos on youtube. Awww. Awwwwww. :DDDDDDD

I saw snow. It was beautiful *__* And I was interviewed about snow and then was on the national news talking about how beautiful snow is and I was so totally eloquent about its beauty and my boyfriend's brother called us the next day all "I saw Mel on TV last night lolol '~*~so beautiful~*~' " /o\

And now I'm back in Australia and it's hot all the time.

I started watching the remake of The Prisoner and I'm surprised how much I actually like it even if Number 6 can't even shout properly. I hate the way-too-close camerawork though. I think it's different enough that I can like it without whingeing about how it ruins everything to do with The Prisoner since I'm that much of an originalseries!wife. And I'm pretty sure if there was a pointless kosho scene I'd be wholeheartedly endorsing it as an amazing tribute to the original series. That's all it takes for me, you guys. I AM RLY TEMPTED TO WRITE DOWN ALL MY BRILLIANT AND INSIGHTFUL THOUGHTS ABOUT THE PRISONER REMAKE BUT I MOSTLY JUST WANT TO GO TO SLEEP SO I WILL DO THAT LATER. IT WILL BE EXCITING. Just thinking about the end of the first episode makes me :DDD and they've had one every episode so far (three) so that's good I guess.

Well I'm going to Korea on Thursday! to meet my BF's parents and friends and attend his BFF's wedding and I'm nervous as hell ha ha /o\ and he said it might actually snow when we're there. ACTUAL SNOW :DDDD if it doesn't snow now I'm going to be so disappointed but the possibility of seeing real life snow is just so amazing *____* to me. It would be right in front of me and I could touch it and be near it and throw it at everyone like I'm regressing back to a childhood I never had *_______*

The idea of snow alone is just an amazing thing to me guys.

On the downside I think there'll be a push to try the Jeju black pig (pigs raised on human faeces. a friend told me in detail about using a dunny where the pigs were at the bottom and I AM GOING TO AVOID ANY TOILETS LIKE THIS AT ANY COST) when we go there but on the upside his mum wants to climb a dormant volcano or something so I suppose there's always something positive. And snow.

A mosquito bit me on the skin directly under my eye the other day and it hurts and has swollen up so horribly. A mosquito gave me a black eye. :( Thanks so very much, spring you bastard.

[ mood | LOUD ]

I am so sad I don't live in the right part of the world to watch the trailer for The Prisoner remake and rage at it. And my rage would be entirely justified and important rage, like NUMBER 6 ISN'T SHOUTING ENOUGH or WHY IS THERE NO KOSHO or WHY DOES NUMBER 6 HAVE MULTIPLE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS THAT'S JUST NOT RIGHT >:(

unexplained giant absence \o/ [18 Aug 2009|11:13pm]
I've regressed to lurkerdom partially due to a giant bunch of (mostly work-related) stress, stress so bad I've even been given stress tablets because apparently freaking out over nothing is bad news. :( And yet I take these tablets and feel like they help, because I'm all about psychosomatic reactions. Or maybe they do help, I don't know. They should help me stop picking at the skin around my fingernails until it bleeds, that's all I'm saying.

ANYWAY

I've been marathoning all of B5 again and LET ME TELL YOU LJ I don't care what anyone else says if they say anything else, B5 is such a giant love-letter to people having stupid bickering conversations. *__* Also I think the funniest thing I'd forgotten was the alien in Sic Transit Vir walking into shot while Vir and the Naarn are arguing, then turning and walking away again. You will forever have a place in my heart, walking alien dude.

Also I watched Evasive Enquiry Agency and it's pretty much THE BEST TREASURE-HUNTING-RELATED THING that isn't Indiana Jones or Relic Hunter. They hunt treasure. *__* treasure that's gold bars in the shape of pretty leaves *__* and gangsters chase them around and get outsmarted *___*

My dad's away on holiday so I'm looking after his place until next week. Which is great because it means I'm actually getting stuff done, and by getting stuff done I mean watching shows/movies and playing games I'd been putting off. It's the perfect 2 weeks of isolation. Though his keyboard sucks and there is no backslash what the hell keyboard this is in no way good enough.

I have a DW account now under bendylin but I'm not sure what'll happen with that right now.

I've finished the Death Note anime now as well as the manga and the anime is about 10000 times better. I don't even know why since it's pretty much the same BUT STILL IT'S BETTER. I think there's a lot less internal monologueing, or maybe it just seemed like that because it's bright colourful action of people monologueing, I don't know. AND I THOUGH PEOPLE WERE JUST LYING ABOUT THE FOOT RUBBING SCENE AND THE SECOND OPENING SONG LOLOLOL THAT WAS AMAZING.

I've started playing Phoenix Wright! :DDDD actually I'm on to the third game now and I'm at the point where I "awwww" sadly at anyone making fun of Gumshoe. god self what is wrong with you? Also I suspect my shipping preferences really aren't going to be the norm with these games. Everyone totally ships Phoenix/Maya, Franziska/Adrian and Godot/everyone, right? :D :) :| :( And Godot's suddenly shot up to being my favourite prosecutor and it's not surprising why reallyCollapse )

Everything about Suju is glorious and I can't believe I haven't kept up with them in months. To the point where I've only just watched the first part of the concert DVD and I BOUGHT THIS IN OCTOBER. It's so amazing. It made me cry from pure pure happiness. I could understand a large amount of what they said. They didn't say much but I STILL COUNT THIS AS FANTASTIC. :DDDD

And after having been given I'm Sorry I Love You months ago and just starting watching it I can understand a fair amount of that too and it's awesome. And parts of it were filmed in Melbourne! It's great, I spent a lot of the time going "oh lol they're in Federation Square :D oh that's the shop that's open all the time :D I don't know where that place it's but it's somewhere in Melbourne! :D" It's like I get starstruck by places.

I had no idea where the section to change userpics was just then. I am good at many things!

I am no longer sick! :D My bf has an extension on his visa that lets him live here another year! \o/ My cat fell asleep in front of my wardrobe and now I can't get my work clothes :(

THINGS.

I really liked Watchmen. Read more...Collapse )

20th Century Boys Read more...Collapse )

I'm halfway through Death Note! I wish women were a bit better represented in this, it's annoying. L looks constipated in 1 out of every 10 panels or so though LOLOLOL

Oh Suju your existence makes me happy.

Why hello there Mother 3 boss I must have blocked from my brain. DDDD: I was walking through the little lightning things all "I have overleveled like crazy this is awesome so I just get to the top of this and lol at Fassad and then I cry buckets right? :D" and then he THREW LIGHTNING AT ME.

WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DO THAT?

In retrospect I PROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE FORGOTTEN THESE PARTS OF THE GAME. >:( god I love this game

SPEAKING OF THINGS I LOVE THE 20TH CENTURY BOYS MOVIE IS UTTERLY UTTERLY INCREDIBLE AND I KEPT ALMOST CRYING AT IT SIMPLY BECAUSE IT EXISTED, THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS.

Also I read the book my favourite comedian wrote about the environment and now I'm going to try and make myself stop being crap at it. \o/?

Apparently I have glandular fever. Take THAT, healthy world! :( Or I might not because they thought I had something else the other week and lol it wasn't that and now I have to do more blood tests and the nurse has already made fun of my tiny tiny veins. I only have one day of sick leave with pay left too, so I'm going to try and do a complicated maneouvre known as being entirely healthy by Thursday since Tuesday is no option. IT WILL WORK. :D

Last week I mainlined the entirety of Avatar. I know everyone told me how good it is but WHY DIDN'T EVERYONE TELL ME HOW GOOD IT IS. I wish it wasn't over. I wish I was well enough to think about writing half of the prompts in the gen battle. I wish I could watch it all again *____*

But I'm going to watch Monkey instead and wish there was a crossover between Avatar and Monkey somewhere in this world.

I was going to post all "hey want to see the massive and bizarre bites on my legs that may be from mozzies if mozzies cause hideously deformed bites :D? :D?" and then I realised that that would be stupid. God. One of them's almost as big as my palm. If they leave my legs discoloured for any more days I'm going to put my fist through a cat. >:(

ANYWAY I've finished 20th Century Boys \o/ lol trying to avoid friends and family to read a manga online? why yes! now I just need to sleep more than 3 hours and actually interact with people again and post a post with some sort of rambling merit to it AND THEN FIND ANOTHER THING TO READ AND STOP OBSESSING OVER THE MOVIE because it's not like I haven't just been watching the same things over and over again.
lol so apparently I get epically scared of Friend even if he's in, like, a single frame, as if he's a mirror demon or something. :( srsly all these chapters (spoilers) scared the hell out of me.

I cannot get over how well cast the movie looks. Yoshitsune and Otcho look especially awesome I AM SERIOUSLY JUST ABOUT SLEEP DEPRIVED ENOUGH TO KEYSMASH OVER ALL THIS and I wish so hard I knew more Japanese than "friend" and "fish" and "I am Tenma" to be able to order the DVD. ML;SH.

WHICH IS NOT TO SAY THAT I'VE FORGOTTEN ABOUT RAMBLING OVER PLUTO I INTEND TO DO THAT TOO i should really sleep

Okay, I just caught up on Pluto.

*_____________________________*

I want to write a long rambly post about everything but my head hurts. Hopefully I have hardly any work tomorrow and can waste time doing that for those are the best work days. and now I just want to start reading 20th Century Boys. *_______*

Every time my bf called me this week and I was at home he was like "what are you doing? :D?" and I was like "still reading Pluto! :D?" and he lol'd at me and then geeked out about Naoki Urasawa. LOL EPIC MUTUAL URASAWA LOVE IS EPIC.

This week is catch-up week [17 Dec 2008|10:22pm]
Believe me it's a good thing I've been avoiding LJ, since all it would have been recently would have been rants about obtaining visas and things in Australia. >:(

Also I choose the worst time to catch up on games considering I never downloaded those Phoenix Wright roms when I had the chance and they don't even seem to be on ebay and I keep forgetting everything else I intended to eventually buy and play and haven't even got around to all the ones I have bought and not played. THAT SAID MOTHER 3 IN ENGLISH IS STILL THE GREATEST GAME.

Photobucket

I LOVE HIM ALREADY

I've finished the first chapter and now I love Gesicht and the maid robot whose scene made me all upset lol sensitive ino and everyone else and Naoki Urasawa even more. :D :D :D

Some of the artistic designs for the robots freaks me out a little AWESOMELY and I'm not entirely sure why -- unless some of them, especially the robotty robots, are meant to look more unsettling and alien because they're ~*~actually more human inside~*~? I don't know. I've only read the first chapter and got really sad about how hard it would be to be a robot. :(

:'(

but Montblanc's head looks like it's going to float up at me from the depths of hell and I'D RATHER NOT HAVE THAT THANK YOU MONTBLANC.

(Crusade)

I KEEP TRYING TO WRITE SOMETHING LEGIBLE BUT IT JUST KEEPS TURNING INTO RANTS ABOUT GALEN'S STUPID FACE HIS STUPID STUPID FACE. >:(

so anyway I love everyone else. There seem to be a lot of fillers, though maybe it just seems that way because it was just cancelled so early on, which is really going to make me sad at the end I know because it looks like a series that really could have matched up to B5 if it had gone on for long enough. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW I'VE WATCHED SIX EPISODES. WHY DO I KEEP TALKING BEFORE I'VE FINISHED THINGS.

Everything about the new series of Dexter was fantastic and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise.

pretend this all happened a day ago! :D? :( [24 Nov 2008|09:17pm]
Yeah okay so I suck at the internet lately. ONE OF MY MANY CHARMS yeah.

Look here's a post about my trip to Korea only a month after it actually happened! I've been busy. sort of. not really. I slept for 11 hours last night. :(

I rly did take some photos it's not a lie this timeCollapse )

Also I just read Tipping the Velvet finally which was A+ and Slaughterhouse 5 which was A+++ and I have an illustrated book of Edgar Allen Poe short stories in Korean which I can't wait to actually understand.

& home [29 Oct 2008|09:07pm]
[ mood | :D ]

Man Perth is weird.

Yay I'm home!
D:

Korea was amazing. Nothing went wrong, which is the main thing I was worried about since everyone was all so "YOUR TRIP WILL BE AMAZING" so I was just assuming I'd perish dramatically or something. BUT NO. THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED WAS THAT WE GOT OFF AT THE WRONG BUS STOP SOMEWHERE IN ANDONG AND A CAR DROVE UP ALL "GET IN :D" AND WE THOUGHT THEY'D BE GANGSTERS BUT THEY WERE A REALLY LOVELY COUPLE AND THEY GAVE US FOOD. :D Or the time when I got a little panicky in Mokpo because I could not understand the bus driver but a lovely girl who spoke a bit of English helped us and people kept saying my suitcase was pretty. &suitcase;

We totally failed at doing anything relating to Suju. We got lost around Konguk University and were too busy (and at one point drank too much soju) to go to Sukira, but that's just stuff to do next time. We bought Heechul socks though.

And I got to go to a hagwon with a friend who teaches English and taught some English and I totally want to do that for a job now it was A+++ even if he insists his middle school students are the worst in the world. Some of the kids were asking us about Korean celebrities and when they got to Kang Hodong my friend and I both went "HE IS SO AWESOME :DDD" LOL COOL FAIL I love him so much he is trufax one of my favourite celebrities.

I have a crazy amount of pictures but I feel funny about putting them on LJ. I might post some under lock or something. I took a shitload of pictures of stairs I DON'T KNOW I JUST LIKE STAIRS.

We ended up climbing about four mountains in total, went to Myeongdong about three times, bought way too many socks (I LOVE ALL SOCKS), caught up with old/made so many new friends, had hilarious incidents with a basketball team in Mokpo and also the guys down the hall from us in the hotel that never seemed to close their door (one time one of them came out of the shower in only undies while we were waiting for the elevator, and his friend raced to the door and closed it a little while we burst out laughing, and then one of them said "Hi" really sheepishly. We meant to leave a towel or some pants in front of their door, but we forgot. I loved those guys. I loved Mokpo), stayed in a folk village in Andong where no one spoke any English, got terribly drunk on soju (my friend fell into a cactus), I developed this habit of talking to pretty much anyone I could, got lost so many times, ate 붕어빵 forever, got addicted to Doraemon (I have a Doraemon sticker book! yes I am five), etc, etc.

It was so awesome. SO AWESOME.

in Korea! [14 Oct 2008|08:08pm]
I'm in Mokpo. :DDD in a PC Bang, which are simultaneously weirder and yet not than I'd expected.

I'm missing Seoul a lot. And I've climbed mountains which is AMAZING to me, even though it's probably not all that big a deal. But still AMAZING.

And yeah, that's about it. I can't really write, I think credit on this PC's running out. Good times.

다른친구들은 술마시면 장현석이 말리느라 정신못차려...예전에 나도 같이 술마시다가 한 술집에서 3번이나 싸움이 나서 죽는줄 알았어..ㅋㅋ
한국가면 내 생각많이 해야해~ 생각안하면 혼나~ㅋㅋㅋ

I watched Highlander last night for the first time ever! I am going to use "it's a kind of magic" subtly in every conversation until someone else mentions Highlander and then I can be like "YES ISN'T THAT SUCH A WONDERFUL FILM LIKE THE BIT WHERE THE KURGAN RAN OUT OF THE CHURCH FLAILING LIKE AN IDIOT OH HOW I ENJOYED WATCHING IT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND CERTAINLY NOT JUST RECENTLY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!" and then we can duel or something.

I meant to do that other meme about picking people for different things, but it made me panicky about picking people so I haven't. :(

I've come to the realisation that I'm really just going to be happy with the Watchmen movie as long as Rorschach's mask moves and the ending stays the same. Which, apparently, it will. Oh, and if the ~*~Rorschach and Dan hold hands~*~ scene's in it. They could just have a 2+ hour showing of Rorschach's mask, that scene, and then the ending. GREATEST FILM EVER MADE. :D! I WOULD DRESS UP AT THE PREMIERE OF THAT.

Mostly I just want to dress up as things. :(

I'm still stupidly busy, which is entirely my fault. I hate all decisions. I've spent pretty much the entire weekend watching Batman: The Animated Series. MASSIVE CHINS FOR ALL!

ALSO when driving home today I noticed that Luna Leederville is showing Iron Man and Indiana Jones as a double tomorrow night. DOES ANYONE WANT TO GO I WANT TO GO :D? :D?

Uh, I dunno, meme.

Name a fandom, and I'll tell you my...

Note: for the most part I ship everyone/everyone else because it's easier that way.

I don't know who this Caviezel fellow is, but Sir Ian will play the sinister Number Two who controls a mysterious place known as The Village is the best thing I have ever read. I hope that when they get around to the ending it makes even less sense than the original solely because I DON'T EVEN THINK THAT'S POSSIBLE.

\o/

And if this isn't in it I will be heartbroken. Heartbroken.
