I'm always up for more friends.

Please take note:

I lovingly make fun of musicians that I like

Expect a lot of RL babble and stupid incoherent girling/ranting over my interests

I don't care for anime or manga but I have no problem with people who like it

I'm a university student and am LIFE BUSY, so don't expect me to comment right away (but I do read all my friends' entries whether I comment or not)

I curse like a sailor. But only sometimes.

If you're still up for it, go ahead and add me! Make sure you comment and tell me a bit about yourself, such as what we have in common as far as fandoms and the like! :)

More?Collapse )

What is the last great book you read?


Pedro Paramo by Juan Rulfo

If you have an interest in Latin American literature and/or are a very patient reader (who doesn't mind fragmentation and a lot of open ended questions), I think you will find much in this book to remember long after you've finished reading it. This book is proof that brevity can be wonderfully moving.

only had about 10+ shots of sake last night. it was a smooth, yogurt-y texture, really good though. i have to look out for a few bottles next time i go to mitsuwa. i forgot what the exact name was. but IT WAS GOOD. dammit. 

I don't drink unless I go out and last night I went out with the bf for his mom's birthday. it was a nice time.

we talked about my story and the characters for a while. it was hilarious.

i am not ashamed to integrate drugs, sex and violence into certain situations because they are all a part of life, especially a life involved on the streets and corrupt secret police forces. there is no right and wrong. just varying degrees of evil. if the times are hard enough, people will want to believe anything, so they may turn to a powerful figure who promises salvation, but he will actually lead the world to its demise.

i'm scaring myself just a little by researching such horrible times in history. it helps, though, to learn as much as i can. this way, i can make the story feel a more realistic and frightening even for a fantasy. hmm or am i now in the steampunk genre. oh well. i will continue to write wihout worrrying about fitting into a genre.

Recieved Gazette's new single PLEDGE in the mail  yesterday. I absolutely love "Pledge." The track after that is "The True Murderous Intent." I have mixed feelings about the song; I mean, I like the rough lyrics and the fast pace but the song doesn't sound memorable to me. Shiver, Hesitating Means Death, Naraku, RED, Vermin and Unbearable Fact are all very memorable songs (I loved all of them) not only in their meaning but in the sound. The True Murderous Intent just feels like a track I'd want to skip over. There's nothing that really keeps my attention. And the female vocals sound good on their own, but when thrown in together with Ruki's vocals and overall hard melody, it sounds awkward and forced. Like, "let's have a cool musical contrast *throws in girl and makes her sing*"

Voiceless Fear is a strong track but just a bit underwhelming. Because Pledge is beautiful and complex to me, the other two just don't measure up. Even on their own, without being compared to Pledge, they lack..something. Well, I'm not thoroughly educated in music so I'm just going by how I emotionally responded to each song.

I'm looking forward to what Gazette will come up with next. They must be under a lot of pressure right now and obviously they've been busy, making frequent magazine appearances (yes I've bought them all) so I'll be patient and continue to support them no matter what<3. I adore this band, really.

I had Drawing II on Thursday. My professor handed out all our supplies and she even brought her chihuahua! It was possibly the most adorable thing I've ever seen (I think I've said that about a million other things). I want one.

Also, I bought this, fuck yeah.

Last week I also bought a portrait of Ruki from the same seller. She just sent it out today so I'm excited!

Yeahhh... I'm a Ruki kind of girl. Like Anna Quindlen said that she "was a Paul girl" (Beatles). I think girls who like Ruki the most are different from ones who like Reita, Aoi, Uruha or Kai. And I'm a Ruki type, stubborn, considerate but shy at the same time.

Ha. I like that I'm not like other fangirls who are all, "OMFGZ ROOOKIE IS sOOoOOo_O SEXY I SHALL MARRY HIM BEAR HIS CHILDREN AND ANYONE WHO DARES TO TOUCH HIM WILL GET DONKEY PUNCHED IN THE DICK. THEN I WILL EAT THEIR FLESH"

Okay perhaps I overdid it there.

^^ Ruki, my favorite Gazeman, hahaha.

I am in the middle of drawing him, and an original character who is modeled after him. Only taller and with long, red hair xD. His name is Siege and he is just as sexy, I think. He's one of the very few characters inspired by a Japanese musician. Well.. there was FF: Crisis Core's Genesis who was modeled after Gackt :D.

I'm going back to school on Thursday and I can't wait to hoard the scanner in the computer lab so I can upload all the scraps I've been working on during the summer.

Off to bed now. I'm going out to dinner tomorrow with the BF. It'll be at a nice little Japanese restaurant in town. We went to an authentic Japanese place a few days ago with his parents. It was a nice time<3. My eyes literally lit up when I saw miso soup. Miso wtf you're so good come into my tummy. LOL okay I'm going to sleep now.
