I clearly watched "Maoh" and "Ryuusei no Kizuna" in the wrong order.
The endings of both were very good... but Maoh was definitely the more depressing of the two.
I desperately want more uplifting things now, to the point that I'm considering rewatching "Yamada Tarou" or trying to pick up "Binbo Danshi" again. i would just suck it up and watch Iwojima, since it would quell my Nino craving... but I know that wouldn't make me any happier.

The only other thing I can think of to watch is Renai Shindan which... HI... won't help.

Lots of squares for the quilt done now, and I just have to do the ones with the alternate dark for the border. Lots of people may be getting lame New Years presents since I'm spending a lot of time on a few projects this year instead of having gotten started earlier.

Anyway, now done playing with computers and back to sewing until I hear from [profile] ashitara or [profile] mouse_art.

Music Lovers
The performances were good. But the best thing? Sho's fake Jeans. Seriously! best idea EVER. ^___^ Dork.

I could go on about Maoh 7 and how much I just wanted to give Naruse a big hug and pet him... but that would be silly. Anyone with feelings about this episode, please comment, I need me some Maoh fangirling.

Costume Progress for today
-four more designs done. Finishing off the back of the kimono. We learned that Maya should /not/ try to reformat the flower part of the design. (pictures of failure to come later)
-also took lots of progress pics and hopefully didn't mess up my wrist too bad. It was really hurting earlier.

Himitsu 19

We moved Hokuto today too (they're repaving the parking lot, so we had too), and got the stereo out. She's on the street now, so hopefully I'll call the junk yard people early next week. I'll miss her sometimes. :3

Also! Jess finished Avatar tonight! The ending is just as awesome the second time around.

I failed to do laundry tonight though.... which means I have no clothes to wear to work tomorrow... crap.

[EDIT: I thought of it like fifteen times at work, but still forgot to post on the 11th to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY [profile] mocny!! I fail. :3 I hope you had a good birthday anyway!]

Jogged today to one of Shishido's mid-paced songs off "ZERO". 79% Hells yes.

Sucked at Agility as usual.
Down 3 pounds from last test and back on my downward streak!

Before now, my best Super HulaHoop (3 min) score ever was while listening to NEWS's "weeeeek".
Tonight I braved 6-minute. Amuro Namie's "Want Me, Want Me" for the first 3 minutes. (OMG SO DEAD!) and then "weeek" again for the left rotations. It was good. Very... just.... omg my thighs.

I am /bad/ at rhythm boxing. Almost as bad as I am at stepping thing.
I have all the Balance games unlocked now. And a shit-ton of Yoga poses and Strength exercises that I've never even done.

Also... am listening to DL5th soundtrack in an attempt to stave off my desire to watch all the episodes of Maoh in sequence while I finish Saku's neck band. /Sorely/ tempted.

Still no sign of work keys. This is a Very Bad Thing (TM). Where the bloody hell can they have gone!?

Am /not/ writing the drabble that I think I'm writing. Just not.

I feel the need to post and flail and scream about Maoh 6.

However, it is late and apart from spending several hours to produce a massive pile of OhnoNaruse screencaps, I can't acurately convey my feelings about it.

Oh! Saku-kimono 1 is /almost/ done. It just needs (I think) a stiffened collar guard to give it a last bit more bulk.
4 weeks and counting. Gah! Don't want to think about it.

I need to get the white one cut so I can paint it now! o.o

Fans are on the way at least. ^^

Have also been rewatching Avatar (sorta) as Jess watches it. So cool~!

Maoh 5.
The reviews are getting rather overwhelming. This one focuses mostly on Naoto, emphasizing how much he's lost and his regret and anger at himself over the murders. It gives a much more mixed picture of Naruse, covering everything from moments of his cold-hearted manipulation to the fact that he's lost his whole family and even faked his own death. It makes a point to bring up the reporter a couple of times, both his threats to Naoto and his suspicion of Naruse... even though that was later explained to be less threatening than it sounded.
Leading us right back to where we were last episode. Naoto and Shiori having just found an envelope addressed to Naoto in a book at the library and Naruse visiting his 'sister'.
This totally runs out of steam by the end, sorry. )

I was explaining this to Jess and realized that at some point I decided that Naoto is in the right here. I love Naruse. I want him to win. but I don't think he needs to be doing what he's doing to be happy, and I think it's a little of a cop out to say that he can't stop now. They both deserve peace, but I think there's no way for this to end peacefully between them.

A detailed summary of Maoh 3.
I may keep doing these, I rather enjoy it.
I try to keep these focuses, but still they ramble )

Will inevitably add more to that when I get time to watch the episode again. Mmyep.

Sleep had.
Work survived.
Played some WiiFit (not enough) and some Brawl.
Downloads of Avatar 3x16 and Himitsu no Arashi-chan 15 are done.
Very excited for new Maoh tomorrow.

Now to sleep.
Damn work in 6.5 hours.

I dreamed of some strange abberant-ish world last night. But the last thing I remember was getting to try on this amazing sequiny dress in rusty copper to green tones. It looked amazing, but I didn't get to see it on because I was too awake.

Yesterday I spent several hours scrapbooking. Not with my Japan stuff, but with costume reference for Kagetoki.
Overall I'm happy with how it worked out, but was a little disappointed at how few progress pics we actually took compared to what I'd like to use.

I also read lots more of 'Hidden Warrior'. I think Tobin-tachi effected my desire for dramatic Renaissance garb. Instead I'm hoping that all this means that I'm ready for Saku. *deep breath* Really. I have some time off, and even though I've wasted more than half of it, I think I should use the rest for something useful.

Today I'm downloading Maoh 2 and listening to a ton of This American Life. It makes me want to see the TV show too.
Once again I've realized that reading while listening to TAL is /impossible/.

But first... maybe breakfast?

Nah, first, Maoh 2 )

For some reason, it's Himitsu that I can't go an episode without commenting on.

Himitsu no Arashi-chan - Episode 14 )

Damnit... I want baby snuggles again. I'll have to try to call and see if I can pick up Mira and Aaron for a while tomorrow. Between whenever Karen wakes me up and when Nikki's ready for shiny stuff.

In other news, I played way too much MarioKart today. I still love my Wii. That is all.

[Edit: Also, Maoh Ep. 1. 4:20-4:35. It's only fifteen seconds, but the rhythm and the imagery... so very lovely. The whole scene that follows in the dark room is good too of course but the more I watch that scene (quite a few times now) the more I like how simple and symbolic it was. How much it tells you about Naruse's character. Yes, I'm philosophizing over the shower scene. Let it go.]

Since Nikki asked for extra notes on lawyer and keijibabble if I understood it, I've taken extremely detailed plot notes over the course of the episode. This may be of interest to others watching it raw.
Summary for those who want more detail )
--------------------------------------------------------------
My flailing and randomness for those who enjoy such things )

Also... Iroh is not missing. Only because it is entirely impossible for me to have lost him already. Therefore he is apparently on vacation. I hope he comes back soon.
