Alert the media or something... [Oct. 17th, 2007|11:42 pm]

...I went on a date tonight.

We saw a zero budget version of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'Mikado'.

We both had a good time.

We might be going to a halloween concert the College Orchestra's putting up next week.

I'm not really sure what to think.

*pinch self*

Yep, it happened.


I go sleep now.

...for those as old as I am may remember a pair of poor systems called the "Turbografx 16" and "TurboDuo" by NEC. Their games were just like any others'. Had some good ones, had some bad ones. However, their claim to fame was having the first CD system of it out and as a result, had a few games that were able to enchance their story telling by using actual drawn cut scenes.

This is a tribute using a few scenes from a few games of that gone by era, one of which, was made by Working Designs. And the song's not bad either.

Makes me realize just how old I'm starting to get... guess that means I have to start doing young stuff again... whatever the heck that's called these days. :p

I'm writing again! [May. 11th, 2007|10:40 pm]
[Current Mood |ecstaticecstatic]

Through various converstations with tyraarane, we were coming up with ideas for a Warcraft story idea that I've been stirring around in my head for a little while. Though I'm still stuck on the first chapter, I do think that the ideas are starting to materialize as to exactly how I want these characters to be, make them interesting, and distinct.

Like so.

Fanfic? Nonsense!Collapse )

End Segment here.

Which explains part of that particular character, which I like since there aren't enough like her in stories, really. *nod, nod*

Now, we move onto another one, like so.Collapse )

End Segment here.

Now, I know that the character archetypes I'm trying to write about here are not new, but at least it kinda breaks the mold from your standard Warcraft fics, which hardly ever feature Gnomes and Female dwarves. However, that still will not be able to hide the fact that I need to write more to get the feeling of writing something funny. So, if I do get into full speed writing this story, here's hoping that the funny scenes that I keep thinking up in the first place actually become funny when they get into word form.

Starting over again... [May. 9th, 2007|07:52 pm]

Thought I'd give this whole Journal thing another shot and see if I can actually make the nonsense I say worth the time people take to read. So, I'll start with two simple statements.

Nodame Cantible is the greatest anime in the whole wide world... to music students like myself. The main character is an ego-centric composer that personifies all the snooty, self-righteous, and egotistical aspects of being a music student. And of course, the crazy piano girl, Nodame, that thinks half of her age, but I love her anyway. A plus is all the classical music I'm familiar with that gets played a lot as part of the series and it flows rather well. Since Del Rey is translating the manga, which makes me happy, I guess it's only a matter of time before the anime gets brought over here... though I doubt the Live Drama will, since there's not much of a market of that here. I'd still watch it if it were subbed.

Last month, I went to Sakura-con, won the 'Best Vocals' in the Karaoke contest, naturally; being the only classically trained person there, (Ego, folks! Ego!), and from there, I've discovered my most favorite AMV in the whole world. And why is it such? It takes something cute and adorable, and messes around with it, until it becomes a psychotic, in a fun way, misrepresentation of itself.

I present to you; Hell Fairy. (Though mostly Work-safe, it's usually best watched at home.)

At the risk of sounding silly, I feel it must be said....

Join us next post, when I show my failings at fanfiction writing in stories that are on hold and/or will never be written because I think I've lost my touch. :(

I'll not mince words.

Checking up on my finances, I figure it's time to let go of some of my older stuff so as to both open up some space and hopefully, though I'm not completely confident it will, bring in a bit of revenue.

As I am gathering together all the stuff I know that I can sell, since I don't use it anymore, I need to find an avenue to make these things available for those that do want them that's not eBay or Amazon, since they charge you for 'the privilage' of selling on their site. So, if any of you wonderful people on my f-list have any suggestions, my ear is yours... but do be dears and hand it back once you're done, 'k? I'm rather attached to it.

Trying to decide to get a PSP with a protective case that can hold four games, a connector to a PC, five games (Four of which are pretty much Gamestop Fodder), and a charger for $200...

Attention, Peasants.... [Dec. 23rd, 2006|10:13 am]

[Current Music |Car Talk - NPR]

From henceforth; you shall all address me as follows;

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Venerable Lord Christian the Introspective of Porton Down
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

After much introspection and meditation, I have hereby come to the conclusion that I am simply beyond awesome to the point where I am nigh kingly!

...or not.

It's all in fun.

Oh, by the way, I went on a group date last weekened, despite being in the beginning stages of being sick and saw Pirates of the Carribean 2:
Spoiler!Collapse )

Dang, that was a good movie. Can't wait for the sequel.

Don't you love how the level of discourse simply goes through the roof when you're sick? :D

Or not.


At this point in my life, I should come up with something insightful, thought-provoking, and intelligent to write concerning growing older, wiser, and more mature.


Nah. I'll just go order Chinese Delivery and play World of Warcraft, waiting for the US forums to come up again so I can complain about the developers obvious anti-paladin bias. :p
