solesakuma: Nino with an amusing expression (Nino is amused)
You know, my music taste is so not dependent on my social circles. I like indie and pop and my friends? Heavy metal fans. Also - the sitcoms writer that dictate my life have a hard time coming up with new characters.

And Thundercats is loltastic, but my cousin used to talk about me as the one that had the Thundercats backpack (There are 20 of us and our friends are supposed to know all the names, but they tend to refuse.)

Tokimeki Memorial is way more addictive it should be. So is FFTA2 and fuck, The Sims crawled its way into my life again.

So I decided to make an entry, mostly because I kinda wanted to and I realized there's not much to say. My life got a little off track last semester and German is coming along well and so is studying for my finals. I'll try to do better this year.

Fic writing, however, continues to be hard. remix is killing me and I still have to apologize for the Big Bang debacle and... at least I got back to modding remix. Having a comod saves you sometimes.

In order to cut back a little bit on the I CAN'T DO ANYTHING vibe my mind is lulling me into, let's do a post about things I'm actually proud of!

... You know, my friends and I take jokes like 'Jin can totally open bras with his mind' way too far.





Also - reggaeton!



This joke is probably only for Spanish-speakers, but Miranda! + Gackt would be the best combo ever:



(This is the original vid, BTW

My country's taste can rival Japan's...

El gobierno finalmente ha decidido hacer algo respecto a la gripe porcina y el resultado es que tengo más de un mes de vacaciones.
NO DEBERÍA ESTAR TAN FELIZ DE ESTAR EN CUARENTENA DESDE EL SÁBADO.
¡Pero los remix!¡Y las series que tengo que ver!¡Y estudiar para finales!¡Y los libros que quería leer!¡Y Mansión!¡Y jugar a la Play!
Mi personalidad tiende a "ser un ente", lamentablemente.

So the Argentinian government has decided to make the winter holidays longer and I SHOULDN'T BE SO HAPPY ABOUT IT. It's a quarentine, damn it. (The flu is really hitting us.)
BUT THE REMIX! AND THE SERIES I WANT TO WATCH! AND FINALS I AHVE TO STUDY FOR! AND BOOKS I WANT TO READ! AND THE RPG! AND FINALLY PLAYING WITH THE PS2!
My personality is so sad...

So. Once upon a time, my Dad finally gave in and bought a PS2.
A few months later, he kinda broke it.
Then we waited. And waited, until he bought a new one.
That one didn't work.
At all.
So he returns it and then we start to wait again.
He brought the new one in a few days ago.
Just now, the damn Memory Card is not working anymore and it better be the Memory Card because fuck.
I won't even think of all the games I lost.

Hoy vi los dos nuevos PVs de Arashi y. Y.

OH DIOS.

ESTÁN BIEN VESTIDOS.

EL ESTILISTA DE ARASHI PERDONÓ A NINO.

Today I saw the latest two Arashi PVs.

And. OH MY GOD,

I ACTUALLY LIKE THEIR CLOTHES.

ARASHI'S STYLIST HAS FINALLY FORGIVEN NINO.

Ohohoho

So, people, if you notice I've friended you on LJ it's just... because I like you, actually.
And if I didn't, it's because you seem to be more active here than there and I do want to keep my reading list/flist as tiny as possible.

YAY FOR ME

I finished my first remix. I'm really proud of it, actually and really, really reaaaaaally loved doing it. It was fun and scary but hey, I like how it came out.

Honoring KAT-TUN fans hermeneutic efforts regarding 1582*, I shall prove it's not about that, oh no. IT'S ABOUT MATSUKAME! Obviously.

Let's list some Matsujun's solos and some Kame ones.

This is why I go to college )

IT'S A CLIFFHANGER.


*I think it's about Jesus in Purgatory. And I could PROVE that... but Matsukame is waaaaaay more important.

I had forgotten how... weird the tale of Sett-Budur was.

Impersonating your husband = 400 dracmas
Marrying a princess and 'teaching' her = 500 dracmas
Talking your husband into gay sex = PRICELESS.

ETA: I don't know how complete it is but here it is, starting in the 107 night [Ctrl + F TALE OF KAMAR AL ZAMAN]. I tend to refer to it with Budur's name, but it's more well-known as the Tale of Kamar al Zaman, the husband. It also usually ends in their  marriage, skipping the whole gender-bending part.
And in SPanish.
solesakuma: (Super Masho Masho Man)
Blame [livejournal.com profile] fivesomeaday. Also check this entry.

So the challenge was to cast Arashi in some other fandom.
I chose Mamma Mia! And I made a poster.

BE SCARED OF MAMMA ARASHI! )

Now playing: ABBA - Dancing Queen

So, toda someone posted a translation of Cartoon KATTUN to the Arashi comm.
And.. Kame and Jin want to be in Arashi.
Leaving aside the haughty ARashi fan feeling of 'LOL', DUDE, IT'S REAL!!!!!!
LIKE SANTA
solesakuma: (pride & prejudice)
Or The Hermeneutics of a Japanese Boyband Way Too Addicted To Glitter
[Also Known As: You Have So Much Free Time That It Should Be Illegal. Some people may call this 'This Is Why You Are Studying Literary Criticism, Isn't It? Because You Bullshit Like The Best Of Them?'. Which is true, but not the point.]

Warning: there'll be long words, silliness, pink, hearts and an over-abundance of pastel colours. Oh, and extremely ridiculous dances.
Extra warnings: I like to blame the Romantics and Matsujun for... most stuff actually, so you'll see that I held The Winking God responsible for more things than I should. But the sparkles are probably his fault.

If there's a hard side to being an Arashi fan it is the way your brain keeps trying to make sense of things that, frankly, are probably the products of an over-caffeinated Matsujun. Since Matsujun's mind is a scary, sparkly place on a normal day, caffeine gives it such an edge that your logical side cries for weeks after seeing the Lucky Man PV (which is completely beyond my powers of deduction and bullshitting but still somehow Matsujun's fault).

But is Arashi's kind of chaos just that, pure, undiluted chaos or is there a method to their madness? Do they just like sparkles and rainbows or are they actively working against the trappings of gender? Is their brand of unlogic just what happens when you put five wildly different guys together or are they undermining the fallogocentric Western thinking?

I used to think they were just plain weird but... then I saw Love So Sweet and suspected there was something under all the saccharine.  Something dark, just like truth PV. Something disturbing, like Yamapi. (maybe he has died and they brought him back as a zombie. Or they learnt from CLAMP and are now cloning the boys). But I digress.

And then I realized Arashi had just declared war on me, the West and rubber ducks. And probably even Christina Aguilera. Or bears.
So, how did I come to this shocking revelation? Sleep deprivation, of course. And I'm even ready to actually support my position!

Love So Sweet, as its title shows, is a very... sweet song. But within it lurks an untold evil!

Adopt one today!
You know you want to click it!
I hate a certain someone on my flist!

Para la gente de la Mansión: voy a tratar de responder algo, pero esta noche no me conecto porque hay Dorama Naito en mi casa.
Asimismo, para las que estaban en el chan anoche, mi amiga y yo vamos a hablar en la semana. Deseénme suerte.
solesakuma: (WTF?!)
Annoyed with Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle? Sick of angst? Just looking for a good laugh?
I bring you, dear flist, TRC, ABBA Edition.
Because it makes more sense if you replace all dialogue with ABBA lyrics: chapitre 188, with Mamma Mia lyrics. I listened to the song while re-reading my masterpiece and... well, do it yourself!

  • Adoro Pushing Daisies.
  • Mi carrera finalmente está empezando a integrarse. Hurra por el nosotros de autor.
  • Hoy hubo otro accidente en mi calle. El atropellado dejó una marca en el techo del auto que lo pisó. Debería sorprenderme, pero vivo en la ciudad con los peores conductores del mundo así que...

  • I love Pushing Daisies.
  • My major is finally coming together.
  • There was another traffic accident in my street. The victim made a dent on the car's roof. I should be surprised, but since I live in the city with the worst drivers ever...

Today, he laughed at a xckd strip.

Am I the only one deeply affected by the latest XKCD's strip?
Because I shouldn't be feeling this sad about monigotes.
***
¿Soy la única que se bajoneó mal con la tira de hoy de XKCD?
Porque no debería estar así de triste por un par de monigotes y mal de muchos...

My little brother sometimes watches Doctor who with me. A few weeks ago we saw 'Blink'. On Friday, he confessed he's afraid of statues now. XP

  • Norway, Sweden and Finland. Oh, and I've forgotten Sweden capital. Because it's Norway ---> Oslo, Finland ----> Helsinki and Sweden ----> ?
  • The Balkans. So I remember which countries are there and some cities/capitals but which is which is too much for me!
  • Damn, Eastern Europe as a whole. But I do remember the capitals
  • I always get Liechstenstein and Luxemburg mixed up.
  • Africa. I can put the countries in their regions and I know some cities but, again, don't know which one is Cote d'Ivoire and which one is Togo.
  • The -stan countries. Never remember where they go and I can't spell the names right.
  • Jordan, Israel and Lebanon.
  • Guyana, Guyana Francesa and Suriname. It's the same than with Scandinavia but these ones are on my continent.
  • Cities in Mexico. Turns out Guadalajara is not in the South. Who knew. (I'm actually stunned about this). This goes for most countries, actually.
  • The Caribbean and Central America. I don't know most of Caribbean islands and I know the names of the Central America Countries but don't know which is which.
  • I always mix up Oman and Emiratos Árabes Unidos.
  • This happens because my Geography knowledge comes from Airline/Railroad Tycoon and Sid Meier's Pirates!/Civilization.
  • Which reminds me I should totally install Pirates! and Railroad Tycoon.
