Hello, Intarwebs [Oct. 14th, 2008|01:57 am]

It's been a while, Internet. I'd rather not go into detail about my stupid medical problems online, so I'm instead going to post a picture:


I enjoy drawing on my bathroom mirror at school. That's the towel and shower curtain looking weird in the background, but Buster and Babs looking awesome in the foreground. Buster's been there for a while but I only just now drew Babs because I finally found purple and yellow dry erase markers. Plucky might be making an appearance in the future since I also found an orange marker...



In other news, Spore is addicting and awesome. If you happen to run across the Francis (peaceful herbivore) or Irving (carnivorous warmonger) made by triltaison, they're my babies. :D

Erm. More later. Maybe.

So, things have settled down a bit more. Some highlights of the past few weeks:

-Taking Prozac experimentally now. Seems to be working okay so far. At least, I don't feel WORSE or like I'm going to die at any moment.

-Finishing up my last paper of the year. I've actually been out of school for over a week, but my teacher granted me an extension due to... well, I'm taking Prozac, remember?

-I had the most stressful birthday I've ever had! I had a final, for which I had to literally study all night in order to be prepared in the slightest. I had no sleep in three days, visitors, and no-happy-pills + excess stress! YAY!

-87-year old grandmother fell down a hill and cracked her spine. She's doing fine and is mobile, but will be going into surgery soon to repair an enlarged disc.

-I beat the main story of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, but there's still lots of stuff happening after you "finish" the game. It's been keeping me sane while the kids (my 6-year-old nephew and 2-year-old niece) are over.

-Saw Speed Racer. It was fan-fucking-tastic. I think it did the series justice, and kept true to the spirit of the craziness of the cartoon. I bet it'd be frightening on an acid trip, though.

-I have two stuffed Caterpies and you should be jealous. (They are in my icon)

-My godmother (whom I refer to as "Miss Peggy") came down from Virginia with my mom to see me and that was fun.

-There is a cardinal nesting in our rosebush, and it is absolutely precious.

-There is such a thing as chocolate marshmallows, and they are delicious. They taste nonexistant in cocoa, though.

-Sharpies are fun to draw with. I HAVE BEEN DOODLING POKEYMANZ. Ivysaur is waddling in mud and I think he is cute. I can scan them in if anyone wants to see 'em. It could be fun to do the first 151 at least...

So, um. No party today. Long story short, I'm going back on depression medication. I'll have some sort of hanging out thing early over break, though... I miss you guys. Sorry for being kind of short notice, but this was kind of short notice in the first place.

I'm going to try and contact people who don't read this.

I'll be having my party on Saturday around 7:30, and will be calling people this week. Food of some sort will be provided... I can make tacos again, or order pizzas. Anyone have a preference?

I also bought Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time last week to help distract me from getting too stressed out during finals. A Cyndaquil is me, and I have a Bulbasaur as my friend. It's a pretty fun little game.

Pokémon Personality Test [Apr. 23rd, 2008|03:56 am]

[Current Mood |crushedcrushed]

A new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game just came out, which is a series where you play as a human that has been transformed into a Pokémon and run around helping others. You take a little questionnaire at the beginning of the game to determine which of the 16 Pokémon your character will be, and this little quiz of randomly generated questions is available to be taken on the official Pokémon website. I thought this question and its answers were particularly funny:



In case anyone's interested, you can play as any of the starters from each gen (including Pika) + Munchlax, Meowth, and Skitty. I also have no idea why I've become such a Pokéfreak lately. I'll try to shut up about it. :P

The Birthday Thing [Apr. 21st, 2008|05:28 am]

[Current Mood |calmcalm]

My brother is coming to see me on Friday and my dad is coming down by plane on Saturday, so I think this weekend is pretty much dominated by family-related birthday things. Would the following weekend of May 2 or 3 be agreeable to everyone for cake and hanging out and such? This is mostly because Sunday sucks (this is a scientific fact) and because my family will be out of town then. That way, I don't feel awkward as you guys discuss things I'm afraid my mother will overhear because of the horribly open design of my house! Exciting stuff, I know.

I also think that will even be after most of you guys are done with finals, too.

Why is lj trying to sell me a USB-powered "Humping Dog" and why is it something they think I want to buy?

Manga Scanlation [Apr. 19th, 2008|03:05 pm]
obakehoshi
Here are the links for the first chapter of that Pokémon manga I said I was scanlating with moonplanet before.

This is the title page

Summary: This is a one-volume manga with ten chapters that closely follows the story of the Red, Green, and Blue versions of the game. It's drawn in a style similar to the original concept art and it covers many things that aren't mentioned in other works (such as what happened to Gary's parents) and things that only happened in the game (like finding the Warden's teeth in the Safari Zone and the ghost of the Marowak in the Pokémon Tower). It follows the gameplay very closely, covering all the way to the Elite Four.

Sendspace - 20 MB
Mediafire - 20 MB
Megaupload keeps deleting the files for some reason, but if you'd like it on something else, just ask. :3

More Disjointed Thoughts [Apr. 14th, 2008|04:51 am]

[Current Mood |depresseddepressed]

-Code Geass R2 redeemed itself with episode 2.

-I spent most of today drugged/asleep with allergy meds. But I can breathe with my mouth shut now!

-Still horribly, crushingly depressed. Actually a little worse off than before. This makes... three weeks solid, now. Hrm.

-Birthday's on the 25th (a Friday). Anybody wanna hang with me sometime that weekend? Debating whether I wanna do the party/hanging-out/food thing. All you people I know are invited, if so. I'll be 21. Craziness.

Present Ideas (since they were requested)Collapse )

I'd also just love a nice, cheap, burn-it-yourself mix CD with songs you think I'd like. Just try to vary 'em up (don't make them all entirely techno, rock ballads, or video game bg music).

I have one Hannah made me years ago and one Wendi made me in high school, and I love them both.

Persepolis [Apr. 10th, 2008|04:41 pm]
obakehoshi
I only just found out that they made an animated movie of the two-volume graphic novel series Persepolis. It apparently originally came out in a limited release on Christmas, but is being re-released in a more nationwide theater distribution tomorrow. I absolutely LOVED the novels and I must see the movie this weekend sometime.



If you're unfamiliar with the story, it's a graphic novel that is an autobiography of an Iraqi woman from the time they started becoming very severe with religious beliefs during her childhood (subjugating women into wearing veils, etc) and into her adult life. It's an absolutely fantastic work that I highly recommend.

It starts tomorrow and is playing in the AMC 24 at 5:25, 7:40 and 10:05. Anyone want to see it with me?

Got to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl earlier today with some friends for a little while. I find it amusing that my best characters always handle in a completely different fashion from each other (fast vs. obsenely slow, no jump vs. ability to fly, freaking huge vs. very tiny, etc).

My best characters throughout the Smash Bros. series:
+Original - Pikachu and Link
+Melee - Mewtwo and Bowser
+Brawl - Meta Knight and Pokémon Trainer

I was glad to see that they made Pika faster again, but he's still a teensy bit too slow for me. Given some practice, I also think I could learn to handle Pit and Lucario rather well.


...And now I want a Wii specifically for this game. D:

Random Anime Notes [Apr. 7th, 2008|03:48 am]
obakehoshi
[Current Mood |melancholymelancholy]

-I finished Bokurano earlier today. It went to a slightly different place than I was expecting, but that was probably because it's another one of those series where the manga it was based on is still being written. I'm glad one of my fave characters was the last one. If you like somewhat depressing shows that give an overall "We must strive through the hard times to better the world" motives, I recommend it. Also, it has children's life forces piloting a giant robot and that's always fun. :D

-Watched the new first episode of Code Geass R2 (released today) after wrapping up Bokurano. I was honestly a little disappointed with it. -And was kind of confused. I think they botched the first half's story-telling and kind of copped out of the last episode's cliffhanger which was barely referenced and not explained (to my annoyance). But... yay for more Lulu. I just hope it picks up a bit and starts making sense.

I also want the codecs to freaking work because it took me two hours to find a program to run the damn subbed file without it going berserk (Mediaplayer classic, VLC player, Windows Media Player, Realplayer, DivX, and xVid all failed me on three different versions of the episode... Zoom ended up working the best, weirdly enough considering it wouldn't run the same fansubbing group's files before at all).

-Started up a new 13 episode series today. It's called Baccano! and so far, it's fantastic. It's about mobsters in (mostly) New York City during the '30s and is told piecemeal out of order. So, you'll see someone run out of a shop really disgruntled in the background of a shot as someone else's doing their bit of the story and then later you'll be following the disgruntled person and finding out why they were so irritated as they left the shop. I'm a fan of stories that intertwine, and this one has like a dozen main characters all bumping into each other. The first half of the first episode even has two people arguing over who should be the main character of the show by discussing their merits and issues, which I thought was pretty neat and creative.

The opening sequence and the show itself reminds me of a flashier Cowboy Bebop, and I therefore recommend this series for fans of Bebop. It also has a nice sort of jazzy soundtrack going for it. So far, Mr. Tic, Luck and Firo are my favorite characters. My favorite scene so far is the information shop at the beginning of episode 3. :D

Yay for customer support! [Mar. 27th, 2008|01:23 pm]

[Current Mood |pleasedpleased]

Hurray! I am thoroughly impressed with EA's customer support. The guy was personable, friendly, and helpful. They also replace your first damaged disc free of charge, without receipt or anything! I'll have a new copy of Rock Band in less than two weeks. Hurray!

I've only ever called Nintendo's support lines before. The Nintendo guy even called back twice to see if his advice had worked (it was DS + router issues). I think I rank theirs the best, but EA's is a very close second now.

Also, apparently Xbox has some sort of repair to keep the whole slip-disc fiasco from happening again. They'll be sending me a box to send my console in to get that fixed for free in the next couple of weeks. Yay warranties... :D

Oh, and Jason- what's your Live ID? I'm Triltaison. :P

*wibble*

My 360 fell onto its side while I was playing a game with it standing upright. -Meaning the disc shifted. -Meaning it is now scratched. -Severely so. Enough that it is no longer playable, despite the fact that it was like this for all of five seconds. T.T

I'm calling Xbox Support tomorrow to see if I can negotiate some sort of replacement since it was scratched by the console. No more Rock Band for me...

It couldn't have been Viva Pinata I was playing at the time... that one could have been replaced, no questions asked. Bah.
