Very cool.  Yo, how cool would it be if we both ended up part of the same RPG- you doing music, me doing voiceovers, it'd be like a meta RPGFan RPG.

I heard this song by accident today, and I really dug it.  It's an EDM song called "Let It Be" by Blackmill f/ Veela.

FINALLY done with the crappy game I had to review for the site.  

Now, it's back to 'Cross.  I'm still in Gaea's navel eliminating monsters.  Status effects are the bane of this stage, but Leah's attacks are comical to watch.

= In typical shoujo style, I get really conscious when I see 'out-of-nowhere' flowers appear on a page because a "flowery moment" is happening. I mean, it fills up negative space and embellishes the page nicely I guess.  At first it was annoying, but now it's a game to see (1) how often it pops in, (2) how slight the emotion has to be for them to "grow" (usually a 'thank you' or 'hello' does it), (3) and if it happens where it "shouldn't".... like a cave or an empty room:

This motif gets out of hand sometimes too.  One of the Clow Cards protects a box with a special item that reminds the woman of her lost friend.....  What's inside the box?  Fucking flowers.

I feel like that could be a drinking game. 

As for my manga reading, still reading Yowamushi Pedal.  It's almost the end of the Inter-Highs and the two jockeying for first place are Onoda and Manami.

Curiosity may have killed the cat... but last I checked, you and I aren't cats.

Cinematic versions of Broadway musicals fall flat, in my opinion.  A Chorus Line, for example, was fantastic on the stage but the movie was really lacking.

And let me tell you, Mistborn ends extremely well.

I remember one time the band was driving back from a festival gig, and we were at a rest stop in NEPA (northeast PA) to drain our bladders.  We were all still mostly in our band clothes (e.g. I was still in my crazy orange pants that were looking shabby, singer still had her hair in spider dreds that were starting to unravel) and I was sitting on a bench with the singer waiting for the other guys and random passerby kept kinda looking at us and I overheard several people saying, "Hey, who are they?  I think they might be famous."  "Should I ask if they're famous?"  "No don't go embarrass myself like that."  The singer and I were very amused watching passerby whisper to each other and think we were famous.     

And Mesh, are you saying to go to a Brony convention dressed up as a bed with a severed horse's head in it?  Like in The Godfather.  Dude, that would be wild.

"Eh? Ah Sou" is easily my favorite Hatsune Miku vocaloid song, though I really like this English language version of it.  The singer's pretty solid.

I take it to mean she was dressed like a "normal" in a community of "crazy subculturals."  

I've had a similar experience.  It was my old punk band's CD release show October 2011, I was dressed in jeans, a T-shirt, hair down, glasses on.  I basically looked like an average "normal" in a room full of studded leather and mohawks.

This oldhead came up to me and started telling me about the scene back in the day.  Then he asked me if I wanted a beer and I said, "No thanks, I don't drink."  Then he asked me to have a smoke with him, and I said, "Sorry, I don't smoke either."  He asks, "Then what the hell are you doing at a punk show?"  I nonchalantly replied that my band was playing and we were on after the band that was currently playing and that I'd see him in the pit.

After my band played and I was loading gear back in the car, that oldhead came up to me, clapped me on both shoulders and exclaimed, "DUDE!  Why didn't you TELL me you could shred like that on bass?!?!  You f'n killed it!  Your band's awesome."  And I quietly replied, "Well, this is exactly why.  Challenging conventions, shattering people's expectations, that's what I like about punk."  

Here's a pic from that show: https://www.facebook.com/kryovax/photos/pb.112277955508088.-2207520000.1420391075./210423815693501/?type=3&theater

On a completely different note, I've been teaching someone to tattoo for a little bit now and she took her first steps on skin last night. This is always a painful experience for me whilst teaching someone on account of the fact that NO ONE does very well for their first tattoo. Most people quit soon after that crushing defeat. Her attitude is awesome though and she took it all smiling. I must say, I am starting to really have high hopes for this gal.

Very cool.  My friend Olivia (who answers to Ollie or Ollie Rad) just finished up her apprenticeship not too long ago and just had her first legit clients.  She's even helped design some Halloween themed flash for her shop.

I feel like Compile Heart and Idea Factory are making an effort to improve.  Agarest 2, Mugen Souls Z, and Fairy Fencer F were all surprisingly good.  The sequels addressed missteps from their predecessors and though not perfect, show steps in the right direction. 

The next Fairy Fencer F game seems promising: http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2014/1994.html
