The How's My Driving? Meme

Yay meme spam! Sorry about that guys. I just didn't think putting both in the same post was bueno somehow.

I've actually gotten some sleep though. I feel much better and I'm ready to go be productive and climb my mountain of tags.

PS: Crit please? I'll take anything. Even if it's just "Watch your d's and r's!" or something. Just... something! Especially for Serah since she's still such a new muse for me. Advice! Advice! My kingdom for advice!

Day 02 - Your least favorite Final Fantasy game.

I actually like the characters in the game. I've just never really been able to get into the game for some reason. I've at least briefly tried my hand at most of the FF titles in existence and out of them all 7 is the one that I really have no desire to sit down and actually beat.

Give me a remake Square, with pretty new graphics and I'll try to slog my way through to see if the journey is really as awesome as everyone says it is.

First round of [ profile] otp20in20 is over and boy was it amazing! So many gorgeous icons and awesome people were involved! With the advent of the second round coming in the near future I'm looking forward to seeing just what's in the future of such a great community!

Not only did I get an awesome participation banner, one of my icons placed second in it's theme catagory. I'm shocked and giddy and humbled not only at the people who voted for my icon, but for how awesome the mods are for making such great banners for each and every participant. You can really tell they put a lot of time and effort into their community and the userbase clearly loves them for it. :3 (I know I do.)

Anyways, here's my general participation banner isn't it awesome? Extra love to the mods for re-making it for me because I'm silly.

Star Driver + [ profile] lumati = ♥

Isn't it awesome? I've already signed up for round two. General pairings from Nana so that should be interesting and fun.

That said, Hillary and I had this awesome idea of moving her old tv into my room and the main tv into her room. The main room doesn't really have any heat so it's freezing to be out there which is why neither one of us has done any gaming lately.

So with the way it's set up now the PS3 is in my room and the 360 is in hers. So now I can get back to finishing Persona 3, something I've wanted to do for a while now. Cheers!

As the picture says, I'm going through and doing a friends cut.
Largely it's just to clean up inactive journals, deleted journals that  and journals have already de-friended me; however, I did go through and take off journals that I honestly couldn't recognize and a few people I feel that I have little to nothing in common with anymore.
If you feel that I managed to delete your journal from my f-list by mistake feel free to leave a comment here. I've tried to be careful and double check everything, but I'm only human.

Now to do the same thing with communities. Wish me luck!

I'll have a post ready soon, but for now I thought I'd go ahead and make a post for this. OTP 20 in 20 sounds pretty fun as far as I'm concerned and I'm even going to attempt to try my hand at it. Wit probably some rather wonky results since I haven't done anything that requires fancy textures and text in forever, but it could be fun.

My claim is for the overall pairings of Star Driver. So that'll be pretty interesting.

Took forever, but new mood theme is up. Still not 100% happy with it, but when am I ever?  I'll work on updating my icons and possibly yet another layout after I've had some sleep.

That's 5 episodes of Shiki I've sat through now Mia, don't think I'm letting you out on your promise. Man, this show totally isn't one of my preferred genres at all. It's not bad, just not the sort of thing I typically enjoy watching. The mystery to it's actually pretty cool so far. Guess that's to be expected from a Noitamina, right?

Goodnight livejournal.... zzzz

AKHJLFADSFJ [ profile] chosondragon I totally don't deserve these icons. Not that I'd ever turn them down. I like free stuff, you know? So fussing over my icons shall commence shortly.

Anyone got tips on finding new mood themes? I lost all the ones I had when my hard drive melted.

Also, roomie bought Supernatural season 1 for like 10 bucks today. Rejoice Mia soon I won't be completely clueless when you mention the series anymore. Just... mostly clueless. How many seasons are there of this show? Fuck.

oo1. comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional fandom characters.
oo2. decide of the 3 whom you would marry, do, and dump.
oo3. post this meme to your journal with your answers (pictures optional).
This is so awkward )

I've had the same layout/icons for a while now and it really felt like it was time for a change.

My layout is all new and sparkly clean. I wanted something light/bright after how dark the last one was. It's a nice change of pace, you know?

I've... put off the meme for a while now, but I guess I should actually see something through for once. So I'll go ahead and at least attempt to get back on track. I'm not doing all 14 days at once though, that'd be silly. So I'll just do day 2 for now and call it good.

Day 2 - One of your Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

Favorite anime out of everything I've ever watched ever? You don't want much from me, do you meme?

See, I find it nearly impossible to answer this question because I'm really more of a "which genre am I in the mood for?" type person. So my favorite depends on my mood and which genre I want to watch at that moment in time.

So ultimately to answer this question I looked at my still rather incomplete MAL anime list and went "Which one of these series would I watch over every other series on that list?" and that's how I came up with the answer.

Record of Lodoss War OVA

This is probably one of the first if not the first anime that I ever watched in it's entirety. After all, back in the day my parents didn't approve of anything animated that came from Japan and since I was a youngester it was harder to get around them to watch things. (my internet access wasn't so great then. Young people these days have it so easy!)

Slight cut for my nostalgia and stories of my childhood )

Anyways, onto the anime itself now that my nostalgia is out of the way. Record of Lodoss War is, ironically, based off of someone's DnD (or a game like it) campaign. So it's actually got a pretty typical party set up. You've got the young adventurer Parn who's a total green horn but has a good heart. The old, grumpy dwarf axeman who's really a softy if you can find the right spot. The well meaning cleric, the wizard/sorcerer who wants to fully master his craft, and the hot elf chic who's good with a rapier and can summon nature spirits too. The characters are enjoyable, there's not a single one of them that I dislike. The minor characters can be pretty amazing as well even some of the villains aren't bad. The plot's pretty standard for a campaign I suppose. It's got evil kings trying to conquer and unify areas of land, secret sects who want to revive ancient goddesses of destruction, and a rogue witch from an ancient civilization who watches over everything and moves the characters around like their pawns on her cheeseboard.

Otherwise known as it's bloody fantastic and you should all watch it. Not Chronicles of the Heroic knight, that's a totally different series and mutilates some of the characters. Not Crystania either, that's another unfortunate spin off.

So now onto finding a new mood theme and updating my icons. :D

Dear Livejournal,

Why are you still screwing up your own coding sometimes when I try to do anything on you? I hate you so much right now. Just thought I'd let you know.

No love,

Anyways, that out of my system... I've been rambling on to several friends on aim (and off) about the general plot bunny type thing that has been eating my brain lately. (Curse you random K-pop music video!)

So for ease of well... ease I thought I'd go ahead and post my current notes on the general background and world for it all.

It's not the most cohesive thing ever, but I'm up for hearing opinions and ideas about it. I'm kind of thinking up a vague character for the setting already to play around with in dressing rooms and the like.

It's not very neat and written in spurts so I'm pretty sure my verb tense changes a time or three. Sorry about that I'll polish it all up nice and pretty eventually I promise.

In the year 2012 the world ended. Not that it stopped existing or anything like that, it might have been easier and much more merciful if it had. A large part of the world's population vanished seemingly overnight. Race, age, sex, religion it didn't seem to matter. People were just gone. Some blamed the rapture and others blamed aliens. There was one thing that everyone agreed with though, people were gone and there wasn't anything they could do about it. Way, way more information under the cut )

Now if LJ behaves I'm going to work on a new layout code while waiting for the first Frontier movie to download.

Day 01: A song that you've kept on repeat lately

Marie Digby's music has really meshed with my Rinoa muse lately, so it's been easier to churn out tags for her with either this song or Feel on repeat.

I also might have cheated and wrote my own list of 30 to use instead. My bad.

Each item in this section ships direct from its seller. When you order multiple items, some may ship separately. They should arrive by Oct 13, 2010.
36931698-1 The Chronicles of Faerie: the Hunter's Moon    $0.99
36931698-2 Dragon Sword and Wind Child    $1.24
36931698-3 The Chronicles of Faerie: the Summer King  $0.99
36931698-4 Daughters of the Moon: the Final Eclipse-#13 (Daughters of the Moon)    $1.07
36931698-5 The Shapeshifters: The Kiesha'ra of the Den of Shadows  $7.59
Subtotal $11.88
Coupon -$1.00
7.98% Sales Tax $0.95
Shipping & Handling* $18.15
Total $29.98

This... didn't seem so daunting when I thought I was going to get a rebate on the shipping. Turns out it was some convoluted "mail in x and sign up for y" thing. Bah!

So... I just spent 46.98 in the course of two hours I think. Oops? Because something happened to my knock off Greiver ring so I just had to buy another one.  Except this one's coming with more junk. Paid a little more for this one too, here's hoping it's actually like in the picture otherwise I'll be raising some hell. I paid extra money to get one that actually half looked like it was supposed to and didn't just have some swirly thing on it. This one you can actually make out that there's a freaking winged lion on the ring. So, if I get the swirly one? There will be hell to pay since I could have spent 8 bucks and gotten the same thing I already had.

Oh well. It's nice to spend some money on yourself every now and again and it's not like I don't have an almost $600 check that hits the bank on Friday. (Well it should anyway, you never know.)

Got asked today... well yesterday now but w/e, about if I had a Plurk and after feeling dumb for going "what is that exactly? D:" I realized I'd looked at it once before and then written it off. rofl

However in the interest of following the crowd and being a good little lemming (and figuring out why plurk), I bring you this...

Edit: So apparently LJ doesn't like the plurk widget thing. Who knew? Much less witty, but here have a link.

Also, that one meme is boring. I think I'm going to drop it in interest of actually finding things to talk about. /le gasp

I almost forgot that I wanted to talk about this, the last post is already huge, and frankly you guys are like the best people to turn to.

It's either you or go off topic on rpanoncomm and I'm kind of hoping that y'all have better advice than anon does.

Anyways, it's like this...

Yet another cut for length )So, before I do something notoriously stupid again, I figured I'd come talk at all of you in hopes that maybe this time I won't gigantically screw my life up just because 1. I'm entirely too lonely, 2. I tend to jump into things for no reason, 3.... I don't have a three never mind, 4. profit?

2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.
Yay the 6 icon meme again. :D )
