primitiveradiogoddess: (Then I'd be your harmony)
 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!

 With the weather getting chilly and the summer coming to a close, I have another job prospect with a bigger paycheck coming up, and anticipation for the season of heat bills and sweaters. We also have the upcoming premieres of fresh new autumn animes to look forward too, with the summer animes slowly coming to a close with prospects of future continuations in the next year. There's also the lineup of holiday console releases and games. We're aiming for a WiiU currently, because the lure of Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, and Windwaker HD are just too much to resist.

So I spent the latter half of my summer watching a select few animes (and not animes) and working upon returning from my Caribbean adventures, with a couple of webcomics, movies, and a podcast on the side.

Mirror, tell me something... )



And that concludes this media round-up, stay tuned for, perhaps, a giant music post.


primitiveradiogoddess: (We should be lovers instead)
 So quick update Welcome to Night Vale is an EXCELLENT podcast and you all should go listen to it. All the episodes are archived here and the main website is right here!
primitiveradiogoddess: (We're both on the wing)
 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!

I'm stuck at home with a sore throat and my lungs feel like they're on fire. What better time to sum up my recent adventures in media?





That's all for right now then!

INB4 WRECK-IT RALPH RUINS ME EMOTIONALLY TOMORROW

I've kinda had a rough couple of months, getting my wisdom teeth removed, struggling with my online classes because, let's face it, one-on-one experiences are a lot easier than just staring at a screen for several hours, and job hunting isn't going well. But during the time I was bedridden and more or less high on three kinds of painkillers, I watched stuff, and played stuff. Lotsa stuff!

Reviews and summaries under the cut:
Miiiiiriiiiiiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! )

So that's about it for now, I suppose. Hopefully I won't have anymore minor anxiety attacks and trudge through this month, but here's what I've got lined up next:

Shows/Movies/Series

Wreck-It Ralph
Clannad
Hellsing Ultimate
Sword Art Online
Mimi wo Sumaseba
Neko no Ongaeshi
Stargate-SG1 Season 3

Games:

Mass Effect Series
The Looking Glass
Skyward Sword (replay)
Okami

So I'll probably be back tomorrow posting again because I'll be geeking out over Wreck-It Ralph, which I have been looking forward to all year long, and then maybe a music rec post later because I've got several new albums and more or less getting into Lapfox, so keep an eye out for that!

Wow I was missing out on a lot of neat shit, turns out. I didn't manage to get to everything, but I did watch some things I didn't initially have on the list.
 
And because I'm bored and this Dreamwidth needs more attention, I'll write a short (or long) review of everything I watched.
You guys are buttfaces! )
 

 
 
And that's what I've watched thus far. I didn't get around to everything, but Baccano! and Hellsing Ultimate are definitely on the must-watch list before college starts in a couple of weeks. I think i'll also add Neon Genesis Evangelion, an anime by Gainax. They also produced Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, and had their hand in FLCL. I also wanna see Voices of a Distant Star for the scenery porn and while the Homestuck hiatus still looms over our heads I've still got to read Rubyquest and Namesake...
 
Soooo much to read/watch, but oh well.
 
Aaaand that's all for now!
