It's been a busy week. I went to see Speed Racer, which was fabulous! Like having 10 mugs of caffeine in a row! This is the first time in years that a movie has surprised me with its awesomeness. It was just so shiny.

...I also bought Pokemon Diamond for the DS. Can I say it? Can I say The Words?

MY POKEMANS. LET ME SHOW YOU THEM.

I suspect the reasoning behind my buying it is that I'm surrounded by Pokemon merchandise almost constantly and children are always talking to me about which ones they like. The clincher was when kurayamihimitsu mentioned she had it too.

Actually, I used to be a big Pokemon fan -- it's where I first heard Miki Shin'ichirou and Koyasu Takehito. I lost interest when they introduced too many new Pokemon though.

Anyway, I also went to the annual Bon Odori near my apartment (see picture). Fantastic, as always. Obon has always felt very special to me and I love joining in the dances. This year, I danced behind an elderly man who showed me the right moves. He took a picture of kuroe and I afterwards -- I suppose we were a novelty.

In the evening, we rented Sweeney Todd and had a two-person singalong with the English subs. Anyone want to join us next time for a bizarre karaoke, alcohol and random cosplay event?




Fandom stuff...

Everyone's talking about Hetalia Axis Powers. Not sure if it's more of a 'whoa, trainwreck' or something else. I'd never heard of until recently, but there were some good seiyuu on the drama CD -- Sugiyama Noriaki was Britain.

Going to be putting out a a call for people who want to join a Velvet Under World RPG soon, so let me know if you'd like to get in there first and get a character.

People who've actually seen it? I read a few reviews and the main complaint seems to be that it was too flashy, too fast, too confusing and only for boys under ten. Which is... not really a problem for me. :P

I haven't read any of the comics... It sounds interesting, I think.

I want to play! Link me again to the characters? I forget which one I was planning to play... XP;;;

Yeah, I forgot too. ;_; Fake, Rock and Velvet are taken, but none of them seem like your type. Was it Garagara?

He looks like Nagi, hehe.

(Are you up for coming out tonight? Midnight Mess is on... Midnight to five.)

I work tomorrow!!! T-T Else I would go as I'm slowly starting to feel a little better. But that and work tomorrow would kill me. I really wanted to go though. I ran into james at the bank earlier and he told me about it and I was all: T-T DAMNIT!

I'm not even supposed to work but I'm filling in for a coworker who has to leave early to catch a plane. v_v

Ah, that's a shame. When does work stop for you? There's stuff all next month too...

This is my last day before September except for this one class in the evening, every other week on Mondays.

Couldn't sleep last night because the music from the bar across the street was so loud~ ... so I screencapped all the charas in the VUW vid. it was fun. Will make up a somewhat-coherent post with them for character stuff. Er, because I can. Yes.

(it's called the Chocolate Bar. And yes, they serve mostly chocolate. plus alcohol. and really loud music.)

I think I also have some pictures I took from a mobile BBS, so I'll see if I can upload those.

The Chocolate Bar sounds awesome. I have a weakness for bars and restaurants with gimmicks.
