 I HAVE TWO JOBS NOW AND IT'S REALLY NICE I have my once-a-week job cleaning the nail spa and a full time job at my local McDonalds. Can't say it's the best job in the world given the weird hours I have to sleep nowadays but it's paying for itself! With my most recent paycheck I was able to get birthday presents and a brand new laptop! Of course I did all this shopping during the madness otherwise known as Black Thursday/Friday, but I got a hell of a bargain on it considering it's an A10 with over a terabyte of space on it. Xbox360's were also on sale for $100, and Blu-Rays for 3-6 dollars. So while I'm still settling in on it and downloading all the music that didn't make it on due to some encryption error, here's a media post.

USE THE SWORD AS A SWORD!! )


For the Holiday seasons, in addition to working on individual presents, setting up a new fic blog, tentatively dipping my toe in the waters of new fandoms and trying new writing styles, I've completed a [community profile] fandom_stocking entry here. You should go fill it :)

And you should also make your own form so I can give you nice things for the holidays!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANNUKAH, HAPPY NEW YEAR, WHATEVER YOU CELEBRATE I HOPE IT'S A GOOD ONE!

 So Homestuck resumed last week, can't say I'm gonna bother keeping up with it right now :/ Idunno man I was pretty happy with a summer-long hiatus, and at this point I only care about a couple of the characters rather than where the dwindling-in-quality plot is going, so I'm just gonna have a Homestuck-free summer for the time being, because right now I'm extremely preoccupied with the majesty known as Shingeki No Kyojin and its rapidly growing fandom, in addition to submersing myself in everything the Kawoshin section of the Evangelion fandom has to offer.

Additionally there are other fantastic webcomics (Gunnerkrigg Court, Ava's Demon, Go Get a Roomie, Cucumber Quest, as a few examples) that all currently demand my attention!

So last week was virtually hype week, what with E3 (Praise be the Nintendo and Sony based gods) going on and the absolutely fantastic Studio Killers album finally released on Friday.  It's been a while since I've snagged an album where I love each and every song on it and can just loop each individual one for hours. I also found this lovely little gem if you're into chiptune, copious amounts of pink, and imagery of 90's anime sci-fi. And let's not forget Jim Gurthie's Take's Time that is quite something to hear and rather soul-cleansing. And I finally got around to grabbing Random Access Memories by Daft Punk and dang man talk about jams. And in a couple weeks time we have the A Color Map of the Sun album by Pretty Lights being released and the current single Around the Block is pretty damn good. There's also the lovely soundtrack to OFF, which I highly recommend!

In other news I'm headed to the Caribbean come July, so that'll be a thing!

And that's it for now.

 I'm not even gonna wait for my next big post to rave about Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack on Titan) because damn man if you are not watching this anime or reading the manga you need to get your ass in gear and do it now.

I'll sum it up:

-Horror/Thriller manga setting done RIGHT whereas mankind is under siege by man-eating giants that kill and eat them for sport only.
-Really simple gender things that it does well such as unisex military uniforms, women are visible EVERYWHERE in the ranks, no gross fanservice or strategic ripping of clothes, no gender stereotyping among the male OR the female characters, and (as horrible as this sounds) an equal amount of men and woman are regularly killed and eaten gruesomely by the ugly enemies of mankind.
-Hotheaded shounen protagonist that is driven, not by passion or idiocy, but disturbing, deeply-rooted bloodlust and hatred and is constantly curb-stomped and has to have his ass rescued.
-Absolutely FANTASTIC handling of sexuality and not emphasizing a character's traits ONLY on their sexuality.
-Plot twists that don't feel cheap or pulled out the ass and fantastic writing.

The anime isn't that far along and will quite unlikely go as far as the manga is now so go spoil yourself silly on the manga before getting started on the beautifully animated episodes.

In contrast to this glorious horror manga that I've gotten attached to, I've joined the [community profile] hs_worldcup  under the banner of Team Noir, so I don't have to strain under the pressure of being apart of a competing team AND I get to participate in the Bonus Rounds! Here's to hoping that they bring back the super-successful Genre Mixing from last year's HSO!

Additionally, I was linked to a rather realistic Sburb simulator called The Overseer Project, where you can join a session, grind for grist by hammering down enemies of different levels, dream on Prospit/Derse, rise up an Echeladder and get to name the rungs, AND have a whole lot of items to experiment with in alchemy!

If you have a group of friends pining for a Homestuck experience since it's hiatus began, look no further and round them up for an exciting(and time-consuming) game of Sburb, apocalypse not included!

 SO I READ RUBYQUEST and then I caught up with it's spiritual successor Nanquest and those were pretty fucking neat dude. Then I read Boxer Hockey AND THEY'RE ALL PRETTY GOOD WEBCOMICS WOW I HAVE BEEN MISSING OUT ON A LOT OF COOL SHIT LIKE SISTER CLAIRE AND GO GET A ROOMIE AND GUNNERKRIGG COURT and there's still so much I gotta read.

I haven't been getting much crap done due to catching up on everything but I am going to make an ATTEMPT to update my fic journal today. Other than that, I've signed up for my three college classes and this semester looks like it's gonna be pretty smooth, other than the fact that Iam PROBABLY gonna have to take an hour to drive to Mancas for another campus but that looks like the only bump on the road.

I get the house to myself again around Thursday, I think, least until Sunday night(?), and I still gotta watch the following:

Hellsing Ultimate
Baccano!
Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo
Voices of a Distant Star
Angel Beats!
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Mawaru Penguindrum
Stargate-SG1 Season 2

THREE OF THOSE ARE MOVIES. One of which ('Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo') is by the guy who did Summer Wars so I'm definitely looking forward to that! And the other two ('Voices of a Distant Star' and 'Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo') are also by the guy who did 5 Centimeters Per Second I AIN'T HOLDING MY BREATH FOR IT TO HAVE ANY EMOTIONAL IMPACT ON ME BUT HEY LOTSA SCENERY PORN I AIN'T COMPLAINING.

Guess I'll start the movies tonight or something after dinner? Hope I don't fall asleep.

SO ANYWAYS YEAH STILL A LOT OF STUFF I GOTTA CATCH UP ON AND WHAT BETTER TIME TO DO IT WHEN HOMESTUCK IS ON HIATUS? I actually rather like it when Homestuck goes on hiatus because the shipping drama stops and BETTER YET I THINK WE HAVE AN INTERMISSION TO LOOK FORWARD TOO I'VE MISSED THE BETA KIDS AND THE TROLLS LOTS

And as far as other webcomics go, there's also these gems that I NEED to read!

Namesake
Unsounded
Oglaf
Patchwork and Lace

I also need to finish Silent Hill Downpour and I dunno I wanna get Minecraft again because my computer was a dick when it shut down last time and is continuing to be a dick because my battery is dying constantly. Gotta get a new one before the semester starts...

Anyways inbetween all that I'm trying to get back into my writing groove and I guess I'll make a music rec post sometime later after I watch stuff and get myself some food.

Also I'm kinda glad summer is almost over I'm sick of the heat BRING ON THE PRETTY COLORS OF FALL
