Meme thing.

I didn't really make a new year's resolution, but I am trying to accomplish things slowly, bit-by-bit. It's working moderately okay so far.

I'm going to try a meme. Maybe.

1. What book are you reading?
2. What anime/tv show are you watching? (either/or/or both)
3. What kind of music are you listening to?
4. What's the last dish (food) you ate and really liked?
5. Recommend something from one of the categories above for me to try. (can be something you didn't list)

1. several: Magic's Child, How to Bow: Inside the Heart of Japan, Twilight
2. several: Skip Beat!, Clannad ~After Story~, Tales of the Abyss, Shugo Chara!! Doki
3. Ryan Cabrera and Cartel because of AMVs using their songs
4. Beef Stronganoff (honestly, we don't always cook; lots of stir-fry bags and quick-and-easy stuff), but yeah, I like the stuff. =P
5. Mm... Clannad (start at the beginning). And for books? I'm still on my samurai high, so I'd recommend the mystery books by the Hooblers... starting with "The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn". Quick and easy read, but they are pretty fun mysteries for like... pre-teens and teens. ^^;

Star Player has been approved. I REALLY need to fix up the layout better, but if you are a fan of Kukai from Shugo Chara!, please join. :D


I'm still doing about the same. I have today to myself to record and work on my website(s) and whatnot. I keep telling my mom a lot of things are troubling me, but she just tells me to not worry about stuff, but I can't really help it. One of my more predominant worries are my feet (my nails) which look horrific.

Cut for those who might get squeamish. )

As for my anime list, both CLANNAD and Shugo Chara! are playing filler, which I do not like, although I feel slightly bad for mixing up part of the plot from the preview. The idea of forcing people to chara-transform isn't too bad of a tactic, but I wish they'd focus on the main/supporting cast as opposed to one-episoders and background characters. Really, Nagihiko will probably be what saves the beginning of this season. (If he ever shows up.)

Vampire Knight is staying interesting, and ef - a tale of melodies has finally started to crack through its confusing and cryptic atmosphere and I can once again say that I adore that series to death, with it's artsy presentation and often dreamlike story-telling. For example, Kuze seems as if he might have split personalities or have a bad prescription of medicine, so sometimes when he goes deep into thought or falls asleep he sees two copies of himself against a colorful inner-clock background. Each copy has half a mask. His image is centered around masks. On the other hand, when Yu is remembering his past, the series puts a border around those scenes as if it were a story book. Sunsetscapes are predominant, and the show will often cut away to images of other things, are switch art styles without explanation. It makes the show an acquired taste, since not a whole lot often happens, but for people who enjoy art or the surreal, or just looking at something beautiful, it does an interesting job of it.
