June London Trip :3

June 24, 2010

TAIYAKI! Finally I got to try some XD

Had an awesome time with Purplezest. Got some awesome lootage too. It was kinda, unintentionally a Japanese-themed trip XD, all the stuff we ended up doing/seeing hehe, didn’t get to the Namco center though, one giant arcade seemed like enough somehow XD Had much fun spotting Pudding too 🙂 And we saw a guy on the tube who looked scarily like Robert Downey Jr… XD

Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (or Ikemen Paradise or Hana Kimi)

April 6, 2010

When I first saw this on Dramawiki, the pic of all the boys put me off. As bishie harems arn’t my favourite kind of series. (Though admittedly, that was before we started watching buttloads of J-drama & stuff like Rookies where pretty much the whole cast is boys… Now I’m far more open to a reverse harem based ikemen overload haha.)

Its similar to 'Mei-chan no Shitsuji's airbrushed photo which put me off intially...somewhat superficial maybe? lol

BUT after watching a substantial amount of Honey & Clover and finding Ikuta Toma totally adorable in that, I decided to give this a whirl properly!  (Even though it was on the watch list, and I would have watched it eventually, I wanted some more Ikuta Toma, and I ain’t even finished Honey & Clover, maybe cos it got a bit depressing to watch for Ikuta’s character… he seems to get cast as the lovable underdog…) I think flicking through the Special episode and seeing some very funny stuff made me wanna watch this more too. BUT what I had no clue of whatsover, seriously, no idea, is that this was based on Hana Kimi. The semi-yaoi manga series(I thought…). The one I’d heard of but always steered clear of (not a big yaoi fan). I don’t think I clocked that it was related to Hana Kimi until I saw a streaming site listing it as Hana Kimi. Confused the crap outta me lol. And this was after I’d already downloaded the whole damn series too…

Is it wrong?

April 4, 2010

(Not that I would ever get rid of any of my John Cusack collection, just using this as an example pic. Damn I need Pushing Tin...)

If you own a DVD, but you’re thinking about culling your collection, and want to keep a digital copy of the movie or TV series in question, is it wrong for you to download said movie/TV show? Since you’ve already paid for the movie/TV show… and more and more often, DVD’s are being released with digital copies of the movie included on the disc.

Is the ownership passed on when you sell a DVD? To a secondhand shop or someplace, since you’ve paid for it originally, even full price if you were desperate to own something, are you still allowed to keep a digital copy even after you’ve got rid of the actual DVD?

Just a random thought I had… cause I do have far too many DVD’s, most of which I hardly ever watch. Some of course I’d never get rid of, but some, like the naffer of Colin Firth movies, I could see myself parting ways with more happily, BUT what if I wanted to watch them after I’d sold it on… spose theres a similar dilemma with games too… I don’t have the heard to trade in any of my games as I always ask myself ‘what if I have the urge to play that game and I don’t have it anymore?!’ I’d be kicking myself of course…

Doctor Who – Make way for the Moff

April 3, 2010

Yes its a cap from the BBCA ad, but I couldn't find a decent HD qual UK trailer at short notice, will replace with a screencap from the ep once its downloaded, its been watched, recorded & now dl'd. And I live in the UK... so whats the point really lol?

Ok, I liked it. Alot. Lets face it, I was never gonna not like it, its got the great Steven Moffat as head writer now. Not a bad switch up at all. Cos I LOVE his work. And Matt Smith I grew accustomed to by rewatching Ruby in the Smoke & Tiger in the Well. And any YT vids I could find, not much Moses Jones sadly, would like to have seen more of that before new Who began. He is good. Very good. He’s got the required sparkle to be the Doctor. Karen Gillan seems lovely. The series loses one Scot and gains 2 the replace him lol, even if one is the writer lol. I *think* the murse will be in it more… but you can’t tell if it’ll be Geoff(?) or Rory so far…
First ep was a bit ‘Girl in the Fireplace’ but I can understand why Moffat might have wanted to elaborate on that story a bit, was a nice idea even if the 1st ep had the Doctor totally abandoning Rose(with no way back that he knew of) for some random wench he barely knew. Never forgiven Moffat for that…

EDIT: Forgot to say, like the interior of the TARDIS better now I’ve seen it on film, the promo photos I saw last week made it look awfully cheap lol. But it looks all goood now. Good on Confidential too 🙂

BUT all in all, very good. Can’t wait for next week 🙂 I want to watch ep one again… odds are I will… tonight… while DSing.

(Posted here, because it was only 1000 chara’s long and facebook wouldn’t let me do one this long :|)

Please say I’m not the only one who’s thought it…

March 3, 2010

Its mainly the hair.... but still....

I can’t be the only one who has thought of the comparison between Depp’s Hatter & Carrot Top. Before his brief appearance in Scrubs I had no idea who he was, then he popped up in an ep of Family Guy lol. But barely any knowledge of this guy. Depp however… they’ve made him look scary… freaky….nightmarish…. and yet theres still swooning?! lol

Yeaah... HAWT XD

I hope all these tweens going to see the movie for him have NIGHTMARES HAHAHAHA! And much as I like/liked Burton flicks…(Sleepy Hollow still my favourite, his movies seem to get weirder-looking as the years go by…odd…) This Alice in Wonderland looks….loopy… its not the original story ofc, its a Alice-revisited story. Like the recent ‘SyFy’ Alice with the yummy Andrew Lee Pott’s as Hatter. Wasn’t a great version frankly… but which will I like better lol?

Anyways, might see this friday, 2D ofc. Why waste the money on 3D when so far, with every movie I’ve seen in 3D & then seen the 2D to compare, theres been no significant difference in enjoyment? If I don’t see AIW, I’ll see Legion for some Angel-awesomeness. 😀

And a few more scary pics I just found… they have deffo done something to his eyes.. made them a big bigger it looks like… and the green ofc… just….freaky scary….

Its actually properly nightmarish… I’ll need to look at some happy pics to get this out of my head…*shudder* Once again, I hope all you crazed Depp-loving tweeny-boppers(who, lets face it, probably don’t even know the story, Disney or Lewis Carroll original…) have nightmares!!

Otaku? (+ some not-so-random bishies)

February 24, 2010

You don't get it right? Thats cos only hardcore, obsessive fans would. Don't argue with me on that. (This is one of the many epic designs from Detour Design on Cafepress, click to go there.)

Now, I thought ‘otaku’ was just a word for someone who is obsessed with something, yes it’s more commonly connected to anime/manga etc, but thats not the proper-proper use, is it? In Japanese its a word for someone with an obsession for a certain area(there are other meanings I’m aware of too, its also a suffix like -san/-dono/-chan etc which I wasn’t as aware of lol), but some still want to use it just for anime/manga/eroge obsessions. After becoming a fan of anime/manga when I was 13(I think…) I wasn’t really aware of the use of otaku at all, why would I be? I live in a country that once wrote off most Japanese cartoons as pornographic thanks to Urotsukidoji lol. That was then though, this is now. Much more accepting of it… I think lol.
I’ve always been… easy to get obsessed with something, when I was ickle, it was Dalmatians, thanks to 101 Dalmatians. Favourite Disney movie of all time, and will remain that way, for mostly sentimental reasons I think lol. But that lasted with me, and still is with me now really, until I was 9 or so, when Pokemon arrived, and Pokemon is still with me now lol, can’t wait for Soul Silver to come out!! Am soooo tempted to import… even though there’s only a couple of weeks in between US & UK releases… still seems unfair that we have to wait…
