So remember when I asked what computers you'd recommend?

I finally gave in and purchased a new laptop. It's an HP Pavilion dv7. It's supposed to have a snazzy enough video card to do some gaming. Finally! I haven't tried it out, but even if it doesn't work the way I'd want it in that aspect, it's still a lovely computer. Much better than the Dell Inspiron I was using. (And um. More expensive. It's the most money I've ever dropped on a single item. I felt sick.)

I named it Varric. Aw yeah, never abandon me, buddy.

To FMA fans on my flist, to those of you who follow the manga storyline and they're waiting for the last update to be translated:

Chapter 108 is available on!!! I haven't read it yet. I'm scared. Yet ecstatic. YEEEEES.

(Also NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS, PLEASE. There's going to be a separate post for that. I just wanted to alert people who've been avoiding the fandom because of spoilers.)

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.

I was thinking about buying Sailor Moon DVDs until I realized (1) most of the DVDs out there are either too expensive or bootleg, and (2) Funimation put out a survey in 2009 asking their fans which project they should work on next, and a possible re-dub of Sailor Moon was included on the list.

Now, I don't think this is impossible. Already an international revival is underway. A new, remastered Sailor Moon series just premiered on Italy television this March! If Funimation is showing an interest, then it could be possible that the English license can be renewed, which really needs to happen because it's been, what, five years? If it is possible to renew at this point? Books! DVDs! Movies! Music! They're going to be available to the western fanbase. That'd be awesome.

So, I'm hoping and praying that this happens sooner or later. If they can put Dragon Ball Z Kai on Nicktoons and call it a new series, then I'll fucking buy it for Sailor Moon so long as I get my proper English dub and DVDs.


(Also, if the guy who sounds like Edward Elric in every single role he picks up has to be in this series? He should be Jadeite. Then he'd be the first one to die! OMG YES THIS HAS TO HAPPEN NOW.)

Edit: Totally not related to this whatsoever, but apparently you can buy a package on LJ that gives you 210 icons? so expensive but OMG DO WANT.

H-Holy shit I got an A in my Existentialist class and he said my final paper was one of his favorites and I probably embarrassed myself throughout the oral defense so he went easy on me BUT I DON'T CARE HE SAID IT WAS ONE OF HIS FAVORITES AND I GOT AN A


now if you excuse me I have to crash on EVERYTHING ELSE.

Glad to see you go. Please let the door hit you in your rambling ass on the way out.

To the people speculating if she's going to run for president, uh, what. Seriously, America, I'd rather have no woman president than this brainless zombie running my country. What's it going to take for people to realize that this ex-governor has no idea what she's talking about?

Oh, well. I'm in a reasonably good mood today. Because it's ...

Well, I didn't whole-heartedly approve of Ulquiorra and Orihime from Bleach being a couple during the whole KIDNAPPED ORIHIME plot. I just don't like the fandom's general treatment with their relationship and how they turn it into something it isn't.

Another complaint I have is Orihime's constant role as a damsel in distress. I'm so sick of Orihime's character growth being stunted in favor of somebody else rescuing her, especially when she's physically capable of protecting herself and others. Ulquiorra kidnapping her didn't make things any better.

Despite my complaints ... I think this flash is adorable. The video! )

You know what everybody - in real life, in fandom, in general - needs?

The iloveegg Song.

Somebody played this flash during my last day of class today. I think it was the lack of sleep or the hilarious memory stemming off from it, but I couldn't stop giggling. At all.

Go watch it. Now. It still manages to make me smile. xD;
