Getting new ideas for this blog.. and Facebook..

November 8, 2009 3 comments

check listOkay trying to do a lot of things at once, so yes and no to updating this blog. Recently saw Otaku Dan’s latest blog entry, in regards about what blog entries failed to make it past the drawing board or not. I have been trying to look through my own 30+ drafts, some of which I had to toss because it proved time dated.. well there would be some retro updating I imagine, but still.. who would want to read dated news?

What drafts still pervade my box though, these are ideas that have bounced around my head a little bit, but so far I can’t muster up any more ideas to write about it. So this is airing my laundry so to say….

Crossplay, would you do it? – Inspired when I went to Otakon, and saw a friend there – cross playing, but unfortunately my inspiration fizzled. I got to thinking about my standards for cosplaying, and ultimately got glummed out, because even if I take pictures, still haven’t had the time or place actually cosplay my own. . Wish I was more like my Japanese based friends at the moment, since both of them are bigger cosplayers than I am. >_<

Top Ten Listing for Tattoos on Anime Characters for me.  -spoke about writing this with Moritheil, and since I thought of it, did some research and realized my idea was nothing ordinary. I am trying to look for a third anime tattoo. But so far the coolest one I think is out there would be Levi..

Response to Koje Oe’s seriousness or not. – Don’t ask me.. sometimes reading various blogs get my mind all whirlly, but then as time settles.. ugh. >_<Responded to something similar… so was pretty much whacked with how much differences as anime fans are bloggers out there. Besides probably bad karma to probably go and try to pick something.

Queen in Japan – Okay a Japan Probe article on Queen in Japan! I really like some of Freddie Mercury songs, so I wanted to write an entry to recommend this article… but time passed, and the entry became kinda dated, besides who would want to read about my eccentric tastes in American oldies?

[PSP] Pangya Papel Shop – Slight rant on how whack the PSP Pangya Papel shop is as well as the internet game is. >_< Then I realized that I can’t get screen caps.. so that fizzled.

Resolving reasons for what type of video gamer I am.  – Another personal discourse, so to explain myself, but it ended up to my mind, sounding like a whin-ner and, anal self-classifier, cataloger, so too much.. gloomy thoughts. Well I just play games.. so there.

Google Reader/ Wave– Yes my love and hate, confusions, wishlist to Google..

Listening to podcasts, and a perspective.. – Why do I not listen to podcasts, or well I try to. Also if I had time, which pod-casters would I try to listen to.

Photography and anime… – Pretty much a progress report of self with my photography class, and what type of goals or material am I aiming to get. Honestly though, I am so lazy about uploading pictures.. >_< So a perspective..

[Anime Girls] Levi or Two Hand – Do you realize how long have I left this Anime Girls perspective in my draft.. I want to finish I really do…

Figure Collection tingling.. >_< – Updated wishlist for what figures I want to get. Got Sogeking waiting for me in Japan with my friend. I wanna photography, document what figures I still have in boxes.  T_T

Absolute Obedience – I wrote about this game before, and wanted to do an un-teempt update, but then I moved my other entry over to fujochic. So will probably be talking about a progress in this game. But since my computer crashed.. lost the save file, so will have to restart this game for the 3rd time already. Kinda hoping it won’t end up like FF8. I love it to the point where I can’t bear to finish the darn game.

But still I persist. Recently many of my blogs are just re-capping what I read on my Google Reader, which I love and hate. I love for the amount of news I get to read, I hate for the amount of time I spend on it. But this is something I can get away with on my job, with the long hours of ref desk.. kinda unproductive and productive at the same time really. I read a lot of librarian blogs.. so that kinda helps the Japan/Anime blogs I read.

I RSS my entries to Facebook, and I have been having a love/hate thing with Facebook. Yes if you’re reading this Hynavian. I have been trying to fix it, but to no ail. I don’t like my blog going on facebook as Notes, and for it getting comments there, and no comments back here. Still comments is comments, so even if Facebook doesn’t show my  entire blog entry, one of my recent entries – Mayonnaise and Ramen had two comments from friends.

Mayonnaise and Ramen .. how would that taste like?

November 7, 2009 4 comments

Well one thing I can sum up from this video via Japan Probe, is that the opinion is probably a very different taste. The reporter kept on making these oohs and ahhs.. so while she didn’t say Oiishi, it would probably be a unique salty sweet tasting dish. I have seen Japanese love Mayonnaise, but first time I even saw it as a soup base for Ramen..  so yes to those who have tried it..

But for people who would probably say eww.. Japanese mayonnaise is not Hellmann’s version.. which is pretty heavy. While I am not a fan of eatting much mayonnaise.. would maybe like to try this one out.

Narita Airport Video and Travel.

November 7, 2009 Leave a comment

Ahh so I was going on my way reading through my blog, when I saw that Japan Probe actually did an entry that had me say.. Nostalgic.. that’s right a way to navigate through Narita Airport to travel into Tokyo. Ever since I came back from Japan, I have been a fan for their Suica card system, since it travels with Tokyo Metro and JR. Passmo can only travel within the Tokyo Metro, and I for one would say that travel within Japan is not for the faint hearted, it cost money, and definitely this video would be a great reference for those going to Japan for the first time.

Call Center no Koibito

November 6, 2009 Leave a comment

Okay this is one of the dramas I have caught on to, after watching BOSS over the summer. This and the previously mention dorama were my standouts for the summer.

Call Center is about Japanese TV Home shopping Networks, and as far as acting goes, this is a pretty good series. I didn’t even realize that there was a Home shopping network in Japan, until I saw Hero with Kimu Taku. All right.. Hero was not one of doramas I watched happily. But this dorama was quite funny.

The cast is filled with people you necessarily might not know, unless you watch Japanese dramas, and pay attention to relationships or supporting actors. There is the appearance of the kid from Edison no Haha, and Karina’s older sister. My standards on watching doramas are mainly plot, and it is an added bonus if there are stand out performances from the actors.

Call Center no Koibito ends on a continuation strech, nothing more nothing less. This draft of this dorama might be late, but hopefully I will update this one with screen caps.. >_<

Ohitorisama – Episode 1 to 2

November 3, 2009 Leave a comment

Ohitorisama-banner

This is one of my anticipated fall doramas to watch, just because of Koike Teppei playing the sensitive type. Also the fact that this is a dorama people say it is very much like Kimi wa Petto or Suppli, Around 40 where there is the whole older female aspect. But even then, I wonder if i can handle this series as much as I anticipate…because there are several dilemmas that are brought out, that can make the series a yes or no factor

  • The unspoken mother as principal who seeks an heir aspect.
  • The slew of girls that are after Kamisaka.
  • The fact that it is so predictable with what Akiyama is feeling. Just as the new male teacher shows up, she starts to think if she is regretting the fact that she is by herself, therefore choosing career over love?
  • To see that she is not getting everywhere without a man is downright.. as with the pamphlet job is sobtastic.
  • The character that I see Sakai Wakana is playing… and the way other female co-workers look at her is just.. ugh.

I still think this dorama is watchable thus far, even though themes get recycled. I like the different activities that Akiyama is going to go to, just as her choices and reasoning are varied.
