I'm having that awkward moment when you know you're overemotional and hormonal when a story you're writing at 3AM is leaving a lump in your throat, even though it's a crap story. Oh and work is at 10:30AM and I'm not tired. HOORAY except not really. What is your life, Sam?

Um, on another matter entirely: I'm not sure what's going on with Livejournal, but in case it decides to implode with the way it's been acting lately, I'm letting you guys know that I have a Tumblr and a Dreamwidth account. (I've also got an Insanejournal and Plurk accounts lying around someplace. Same screen name for all of them, btw.) Just in case you guys wanted a friendly reminder! I doubt anything bad's going to happen, but I figure the heads-up wouldn't hurt.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (that original feeling never went away)
Eww, I hate how ONTD's posts are on the homepage, with those seizure-inducing icons. Thanks, Livejournal! /total sarcasm, do you read it.

Right now, I'm trying to look for a new layout for my Livejournal, because I was tired of how the previous layout resized the images. I don't like the current layout, though. It's too dark for my liking. So please bear with me for the moment while I go through different layouts and trying to decide which one I like best.

I missed yesterday's update for those memes, so I'll just pick up where I left off and pretend this is Day 02. I don't feel like writing updates for both prompts. :P

Prompt for the Sailor Moon meme today is favorite inner senshi, and the prompt for the shipping meme is my very first ship.

EDIT: So, apparently, a book's cover is being changed to feature an 'ambiguous'-looking lady to replace the original cover which clearly had an Asian woman, since the main character is Asian. This is clearly terrible, so I'm putting this out there if anyone is interested and has money to buy the book with the original cover.

(1) Wow, they really butchered the hell out of Dragon Ball Z with DBZ Kai. I never saw the Japanese version, so I hope it's just something the English dub did--I caught two episodes on the Nicktoons channel--but yeah, it really tore the original scenes apart. I get that they were shortening the episodes, which is a great feat, but I feel like it takes something away from the characters. There's no time to emotionally connect with any of them. (Like, in one episode, Piccolo gives Gohan his sword and new outfit and says he'll come back in six months, and then a few seconds later, he's all, "OKAY, GOHAN, NOW THAT YOU'VE SURVIVED, I WILL TRAIN YOU NOW," and I'm like, "...When the fuck did six months go by? How did Gohan go from wearing an outfit like his father's and training with you to wearing an outfit like yours one minute later? WHERE IS THE BUILD-UP? EXPLAIN, SERIES.") I thought they were going to leave those scenes alone and shorten the battles, but I was wrong, apparently. They edited everything.

(2) Tumblr's kind of been turning me off lately. I like having something convenient to post random things, but a lot of 'fuckyeah' blogs have succumbed to inevitable drama amongst their followers by refusing to keep their personal opinions out of their posts and making their formspring accounts available for their followers to annoy them/start shit with them. (Like, yesterday, one account had drama about stolen screenshots and copyrights. Now I'm seeing anti!Disney in another place. I just want you to give me images/videos and other things about this specific fandom, damn it, not this crap. D:

(3) Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is coming out in September this year! Hooraay. Can't wait to play it.

(4) Here, have a music meme.

Day 01 - Your favourite song
Day 02 - A song that makes you happy
Day 03 - A song that makes you sad
Day 04 - A song that reminds you of someone
Day 05 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Day 06 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 07 - A song that you can dance to
Day 08 - A song that makes you fall asleep
Day 09 - A song from your favourite band
Day 10 - A song that no one would expect you to love
Day 11 - A song that describes you
Day 12 - A song from your favourite album
Day 13 - A song that you listen to when you're angry
Day 14 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
Day 15 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
Day 16 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
Day 17 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Day 18 - A song that makes you laugh

I have a couple of favorite bands, but I'll post the one I've been loving a lot lately.

At the moment, I'm the proud owner of 244 icons that I can hold onto until May 22. And as far as I can tell, I didn't have to pay for them because I just added onto the package. Which is a good thing for now, because I'd rather not drop money on extra userpics right now, at least until my paid account expires.

Either way -- WHOO! Time to try out these new puppies.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (❝we used to be friends❞)
So I got one of those Tumblr things.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Maybe repost some awesome things I find, be a bigger dork than usual, et cetera. I'm just testing it out and seeing how things look.

If any of you have one, follow me!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (SM ▶ you can leave your hat on)
I fixed up my profile! Now it is awesome. I got one for [ profile] pwnworks, too, but I don't think I like it.

Random notes, commence!

▶ I have achieved alternate outfits for every character in Dissidia. Now Sephiroth is forever shirtless during his battles. This amuses me way too much.

▶ Speaking of which, I heard that another form of Dissidia may or may not be in the works, and there's talk about Kingdom Hearts characters getting involved. Personally I'm not an elitist Final Fantasy fan, so I'm all for Kingdom Hearts characters getting involved, but I wanted more female characters in Dissidia. Since Kairi wasn't a playable character, they'd just add more guys to the line-up, if it's true. (I'd prefer another form of Dissidia, with some side-characters instead. How awesome would it be to play as Aerith beating the snot out of Sephiroth? Pretty fucking awesome!) All in all, I hope it's a rumor, because I don't see how they can continue the story/line-up.

▶ I played Mario Party 8 with my little sister last night. I won three/three games. It was sweet, because usually I suck at that game.

▶ I'm back into reading again. I go through weird periods where I don't read ANYTHING for a month or two, until I find the right book and my habit begins once again. I recently finished "Written on the Body" by Jeanette Winterson, which has to be one of my favorite novels, and "Push" by Sapphire, which was okay but a little disturbing to read.

▶ The bad news, is that I'm back in my writer's block. Suckage. :/

Oh, dear. Look at what LJ just cooked up.

I thought people got paid accounts to avoid ads, not purposely set up ads on their blogs, but ... whatever. At least it's an opt-in. If I had to look at them with my paid account, no choice in the matter, then I would've been pissed.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ((tt) um)
I realized I haven't made a post about real life and general things in a few days, outside of those twitter posts. Oh, and I should work on putting LJ cuts on those. I'll get around to that tomorrow or Wednesday. For now, have some bullet points with notes and random thoughts.

• Dear 2009: Stop with the celebrity deaths, please. Thanks.

• It's a good thing we don't have any booze around here and I have little to no interest in it. If I made up a drinking game about Kanye West and any LJ/twitter post that mentions him, it wouldn't end well.

• I noticed that I hadn't been paying attention to any television shows. I think I got utterly disappointed with Heroes so badly that I dropped TV altogether. Most of the time my TV is off and I'm either reading or playing around on the computer/PSP. So uh. What's everyone watching lately?

• I've been writing! Considering I've been suffering from a writer's block for a long time, I feel good. I'm still not happy with the finished products, but it's better than nothing.

I've got a problem, though. I have an RP line to write I've been putting it off since June, I have to write it, and this OC's voice isn't active, at all, which ... making me panic a lot, because he's ... literally not clicking in my head, no matter what I try and do with him. I've had this character since I was fifteen or sixteen years old, and I don't want his muse to go comatose on me. :( Can any writer on the flist lead me to writing exercises I can work through to poke him back to life? Anything will help a lot. ♥

• Also, I am in dire need of Beast Boy/Lightning icons. Dammit, [ profile] cheriestar. I am looking at you. (LJ totally needs to give us more icon space. 100 icons, plus one royalty icon for every subscription renewal, is not enough.)

Because I forgot about my other twitter and didn't like the screen name anymore, I got another one.

Linking this here, because I could use some followers. >_> If I don't find you first, give me the heads-up.

I joined MyAnime List.

Damn, I've barely watched any anime/read a lot of manga. I'm sure there's more that I can't remember right now. :/

Edit: Iowa Court Says Gay Marriage Ban Is Unconstitutional.

The news today is really sad, but this made me smile. It probably made my entire day.

samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
→ Hmmm. Why not?


→ My paid account is going to expire in ... about a half an hour, I think? I'm going to renew it right away, but now I have a crazy urge to delete all of my icons and replace them with new ones? I don't get why I'm so obsessed with icons.

→ I just found out that I'm actually six classes away from getting my associates. Chriiiiiiist. I'll have to take a summer class to make up for loss time.

→ On the plus side, my World Lit/Latin American studies professor complimented my writing and how much it's improved since her last class (which was in early 2007), so... that made my day. I'm excited about the research project we have to do. I have to pick from a list of authors I've never heard of, so ... it's going to be fun to explore them all.

Edit: InterlockingCoho (11:27:06 PM): When the robots revolted, I was not considered a powerful enough robot to enslave humans. That made me sad. DOWNTRODDEN ROBOTS OF THE WORLD UNITE!

Why me.
