Opening day for the White Sox. That means the nice weather we had all weekend will drop by 20-30 degrees.

We're having a bad day here.  It's nice enough, but old man winter is making on last stand and blowing the coldest goddamn wind you can stand.

I'm looking forward to T Blue Jays this year.  I think we're looking for a win.

I gotta echo the editorial on this; I thought the Wizard's companion was more of a work of art than some elements of the game.

Those pictures hardly look any different. All it tells me is how good FFX looked for it's time. I really hope no one is wanting to buy the remake just for the (slightly) improved graphics. I guess the extra content that NA never got is an incentive, but not for me. I never play that extra stuff anyways. The games are way too darn long as it is.

To un untrained eye, maybe (just joshing).  The earlier screen comparisons I think demonstrated the graphic changes better and in...y'know actual HD resolution.  I definitely agree that FFX was really ahead of its time though.

...but man, those low-res models are so flat and ugly compared to the dynamic zoom-in models (you can tell in these: the first Yuna looks sweet and almost sparkly, the other one is flat and dull and the lip movement is just drawn on the model in comparison to the former that actually does the lip-synching).

chocolate therapy is my new ben and jerry's flavor.

You sound like a fat woman eating her feelings.

Trying to save up money for the Twin Cities Marathon registration fee. It's pretty steep for a poor international student like me, and while all my friends find the idea of throwing down 120 dollars to compete in a run ludicrous, I think it's not THAT outrageous of a price for a grand event like that.

That means I have to start training for it proper, soon. I'm not terribly worried though, I've been regularly running for the past 4 years. On the other hand, I did a half marathon last year and I crashed 200 metres before the finish line due to complicated reasons (well, apparently I had somehow gotten drugs into my system, lol). That was a horrible experience, so I'm a little bit afraid of the idea atm, mentally speaking. But oh well, there's 6 months to sort things out. :P At least the nearby neighbourhood is excellent for training (late night runs alongside the Mississippi river, hell yes)!

Good luck!  I'm hoping to slowly get back in shape come this summer... it's never an easy start, but hearing you can run marathons is inspiring....and depressing, I have no energy.

We're watching fake high-class porn in modern art class.  There's a LOT of celebrities in it.  It's a parody of Gore Vidal's 1975 "Caligula" which was basically a porn.  The new 2005 one (it's actually *just* a trailer) has Milla Jovovich, Hellen Mirren, Gerard Butler, Benicio del Toro, Courtney Love and other actors in what is again semi-porn with lesbians and golden dildos in a faux Roman setting.  Fascinating?

FFMQ: may not be a "real" FF, but I'll be damned if I said I didn't love the boss and battle music of the series.  Someone did right.  And I loved the enemies showed they were close to dying.

EDIT: I didn't know it wasn't the first FF game in Europe....yikes.  Poor Europe.

^ It's completely valid, nothing hurts when you love the source material only to hve things changed for the worse in, daresay, a more "exciting medium" like in the full sound and action of a TV production.

Kinda reminds me of an interesting take on my manga haps -- where the anime actually one-upped the manga source material:

Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden finale:
So, little known secret to those who read the original Suzaku series, and since the Genbu Saga is a PREQUEL, we know the heroine will die.  And she does -- quite tragically I might add.  Interestingly enough, the series finishes on the same note that the Byakko priestess met hers: she may have been separated from her one true love, but they "meet again in Heaven".  What's interesting is that the anime actually added that in, and Yuu Watase was pretty upset she didn't think of the same thing (where the couple were separated and simply lived out their lives).  So it's kind of funny that she chose to end the Genbu Saga the same way the anime wrapped up one of its other characters.  Essentially, she copied the idea from the anime based on an addition in her source material. o_O

Not that it's a bad thing, at least it provides some sort of "hope" to the readers and some end to not make it so tragic (and it fits in the "Watase-line of thinking").  Made a bitter-sweet ending a bit sweeter -- but I will say that knowing the ending beforehand made the manga a bit off-putting. =/

Dunno if anyone else reads Fushigi Yugi, but just a random aside:
I like the Suzaku Seven better... but Takiko is a better lead than Miaka.  Goddammit, ya just can't win.
