I know we're not anime-crazy here, but I'm surprised no one [I've seen] mentioned KyoAni's latest: Hyouka.
It's slow, but the animation is better than some anime movies (nothing new for Kyo-Anime).  I like it because its a mystery series -- a dying or at least niche genre these days.  So I'm curious to follow it.  The lead chick annoys the fuck out of me though, she's epitome "moe", so sure she's darling, but useless thus far otherwise.

I want the newest Atelier.  I'm sure will see it if NISA is as reliable as it is.  I couldn't deal with the timed aspect.  But I do wanna keep an eye on what peeps are saying about it here.  JRPGs are hardly a seller at my location if I wanna do a late pick up.

Had a week off from work, and I didn't even touch the game once. Shame on me :(
Clocked roughly 20 hours on it and I still haven't made it to colony 6.

I've been slacking too.  Something about the commitment of... I dunno, the 70-100 hours peeps have spent on it that's a bit intimidating.  I love it, just...hard to invest, and I hate feeling like a couch potato.

Played more FF9.  I love how Disc 2 starts with two guards, I feel like I just came back from intermission at a play, and they're giving a sort-of recap.  Brilliant!! :D

Snagged a Limited Edition of Ys Seven for PSP for $30 at an out-of-the-way EBGames that still has a lot of stuff that's out of stock everywhere else.  Just started it, it's going to be my first real Ys play through [that I didn't just watch my bro play instead].  I love the art book that came with -- thanks XSeed!  Of particular awesomeness is the artwork from the late 80's (?) Y's games... the hair dos are fucking fantastic and "ha!"-worthy.  Oh the eighties...

I never thought the show would get so dark and depressing.

I loved the part though where Harry walks up to the phone booth while Pete is inside
"What do you want?"
"You walked up to me."
"You opened the door!"

Strange bit of comedy in the show.



Great episode, great hearing some Beatles.

there's only a few of their tunes I can say I'd put on my iPod.


Guess which one made it, Yodes!

The guy that played Principal Belding from Saved by the Bell guest starred in Mad Men



Like a chick, I'm gonna say, "hey, so was the Gilmore Girl".

Great episode, great hearing some Beatles.

Speaking of not having sex...

My friends and I have been playing Risk: Legacy. It's like risk but you commit to playing 15 games (not all at once lol) w/ the same group. I won't get into details since you can look them up but I'll say it's fun as hell and is probably the best modification of Risk ever. Lots of fun. If you have a game night w/ friends check it out.

My bro and I used to play Crazy 8's with two decks at once.  Picking up 10 cards is usually a game breaker.  But hella fun. :D

Funny enough, I got a YMCA membership too thanks to the boyfriend.  I have god awful vitality though, I'm almost spent after a full bout of cardio (20 min ish).  Perserverence!  Bettter diet!  Something...

Moar sex.

If it helps, it helps.  Hmmm. =/

I'm so pissed.  Someone traded in Metroid Prime Trilogy at work.  We sell it for $45 (better with used + discount).  But, instead of putting it aside, I -- LIKE AN IDIOT -- waited till the next day.  The CD we still have, but some fucker might have hidden the case, or worse, stole it thinking a CD was inside (we take it out and put it in locked drawers...).  The fucking thing sells, USED, for around $145.  FUCK FUCK.  The CD is next to PERFECT looking too.  Anyone have just a case on them?? x(

Fuck Korra, she is a whore, fucking with Bo Lin like that. I hope she gets her powers blocked....fucking bitch.

Someone's bitter.  I thought it was fine.  She showed reluctance for a date in the first place.  More appalling than her treatment is the avatar-style, out of thin air, approach to romance building.  That is to say, I don't by that there should be one yet.  ...why the fuck am I analyzing a tween show???

The Office really needs to be put to sleep.  I still love the the first several seasons and always will, but this one isn't even registering as a "season proper", just a sort of "side story".  Why they made Andy a Manager to begin with, when he's not really too likeable a character to begin with (remember him back in Ssn3???) is beyond me.  Other members of the office deserve more screen time... which?  All.  I'd love more Creed.  And as stupid as the character is, Kelly is great for how backwards her thinking can be ("Princess Diana's funeral was like the saddest ever.... that and my sisters" -- Gold).

30 Rock was awesome this week.  The "live" episode was cute, but took too many liberties that kinda fell flat; and the guest appearances for the sake of guest appearances felt like a cheap ploy at making a "good episode".  I loved them spoofing Real Housewives or whatever shit like that using the sort of sassy black act was great, I missed Tracey Jordan's wife.

I watched Vampire Diaries.  That fucking show is everywhere these days.  And while its good, it loves to use its characters to have just about EVERYTHING happen to them.  Alaric... hmm.  Cool teacher, moonlight vampire killer, love lost, love found, love lost again, low key, Dr Jeckyl-Hide killer?!?!?  What the fuck next...

Community.  Not as good as last weeks.  Kinda sad Star Burns might be out, and weird way to end an episode.  Curious what they're planning with that.

Legend of Korra.  Fucking fantastic show.  Really love-triangle-y this week, but the humour balanced it out really well.  Top marks, and easily getting the "best episode of shit I watched this week" award.  Something about Bolin reminds me of an old school Rumiko Takahashi character.  Over-exaggerated, but damned hilarious.

I'm not too excited to see it, given that Thor was so-so, Hulk struck out twice, Captain America was a one-time go, and Iron Man 2 suffered sequelitis.  But I'm glad to see the praise.  I was supposed to see it with comic nerd, but shit ain't working.  So me and the boyfriend...when the goddamn lineups get smaller.

Eugh.  Metropolis is kinda...hard to love.  It started too sweet for the sort of grotesque ending of Tima[?].

Akira works here I suppose.  Shame my list stops there and at GitS. 

...um, Patlabor?

I'm so sleepy today and lately.  I find it helps when I go the gym and actually adhere to a more normal sleep schedule.  The only plus has been actually spending time drawing.  I spent my first week on holidays gaming... just to feel "on holidays", I love being a vegetable a bit.  I still did chores and took pooch out n all though.

I took a shift tomorrow-- thank fuck, homeless people only have no money, while I gotta get back to "black numbers" than red.  My folks just paid my Summer Schoolin since hours have been cut back so much.  Stupid fucking boss hired a new girl when there are barely shifts to even give out.  I was so upset. It's been tense at home though since my folks paid my school, and we really don't have much to spare like that.  I feel so bad.

Final Fantasy IX:  wth.  Why is it between Dali and heading to Brumecia (the two points you walk around the world map) the difficulty in normal battles freaking sky rockets?????? :O
I got Quina, trying to get her some Blue Magic (hooly crap, Might Guard is available so early!!!), and doing Chocoglyphs.  Stupid addictive hot-cold game.
