Photography: Sakura

(no subject)

My apartment was surrounded my a storm yesterday. I already had a cup of tea waiting for me on the kitchen table, so I grabbed it and went outside to watch. I actually saw forks of red and purple lightning touching down just beyond the fields and houses. When it stayed in the clouds, they flashed white, mauve and grapefruit pink.

And there was me, sipping my tea.

The oyaji who lives opposite me half-snorted, half-laughed as he dashed into his apartment. People stared at me from buses. I just wanted to say, "Hey, it's okay. I'm British."

cortigiana posted some more pictures of the Japan Steampunk meetup, so you can check them out here. I love the third solo picture of me. *vain*

moogle_tey has put together another issue of weissthursday. You can read about it here.

From Moonphase:

The official site for naked ape's Switch is now up! Apart from the seiyuu that have already been announced (Fukuyama Jun, Sakurai Takahiro and Suwabe Jun'ichi), there will also be Nakai Kazuya, Odai Ryouhei and Sugita Tomokazu.

Kuroduka (The Japanese title is this written in kanji, then romaji -- 「黒塚 KURODUKA」) is going to be animated by Madhouse. It will star Miyano Mamoru, Paku Romi and Nakata George. The funny thing is, these names (and other info that I wasn't paying attention to) have now been taken down from that post.

I just saw someone posting about tickets for a Tenimyu in Niigata... I was thinking it might be nice to go there and I've been meaning to travel around Japan. I've no idea how to get there though.

Where has all my energy gone?

Anyone want to do karaoke? PSYDOLL are playing on Saturday night too, if anyone wants to go. It might be an all-night event, btw.
