So, who wants to make or find me a half-crack, half-serious (or completely crack or completely serious) AMV of Seishirou/Subaru to "You're So Vain?"

If you don't know this song:



Secondly, animeiowa is in a week, so I may be gone for a while, cause I'm way behind on the whole cosplay thing. I will try to check the flist, but I might not get around to it. >.>

I love you all and will talk to you soon!

Here's the deal. I'm really into techno and dance--the problem is I don't know how to pick good techno out of the massive amounts of music there is out there. I've heard songs I like on the radio, but I've never heard the names of them or the artists and I have some music that I 've kind of got through DDR and a couple of recommendations, but I pretty much just pick on a random artist and download it and hope I'll like it. So can anyone recommend some good or popular techno artists I can check out? For the record, I pretty much like it all--hardcore, trance, I really love rave music, so pretty much anything that can be called techno I'll take.

If anyone can help me, I'd really appreciate it.

Paolo Nutini concert tonight.

Oh, my God, it was awesome! I'd heard he was great live and it was soooooo true! I went with Gymnast and we had a blast!

There were two opening groups--a young woman with a guitar names Serena Ryder and a band called Born in the Flood. The band was excellent, but Serena Ryder may become one of my favorite artists ever. She was fantastic and has an amazing voice.

And Paolo was wonderful too. He is SO hot, and he is SO talented, and all of the new songs I heard were great, and he did a superb cover of "My baby shot me down" which is one of my favorite songs anyway. I can't wait for his next CD; I hope some of the new stuff he did will be on it, because it was just AWESOME.

So despite the lingering cough, I feel pretty good. What a fantastic concert.

(Also, I saw Sokka's Master this morning and it has become one of my favorite eps. Hoorah Iroh! (he was SEXAY.) And Sokka was cool too. I have to say, though, my favorite character was the master (whose name I forget at the moment--bad nebulia!) and was pretty darn sweet. I liked his butler too--he was an odd mix of Jeeves and the Juggernaut from X-men. Sexy.

So I finally moved past my prejudice and got the two RK OVA soundtracks.

Beacause I love ALL the RK music. Though I feel many things about the animated forms of RuroKen, all of them unpleasant, I am exceedingly fond of the music. All of it.

And I have to say the only reason I watched Seisouhen past Kenshin leaving was because the music was so lovely. I really liked Tsuiokuhen's music, too.

Sometimes my unbelievable manga purism scares me. I was hanging out the The Evil Empire's forum for the most tragic manga deaths, and EVERYONE kept mentioning Kenshin. And I couldn't help but grind my teeth. MY Kenshin dies at the ripe old age of 95, surrounded by his many great-great-grandchildren, holding Kaoru's hand and doing the laundry at the same time. Screw realism. If Kenshin can jump four stories in the air and be three feet shorter than Aoshi on all the covers that feature them next to each other, then he can die like I want him to.

Some of the whole manga-is-God thing I think comes from being a book-over-movie purist my entire life. Harry Potter-blech. Eragon-shoot me now. The Chronicles of Narnia was okay but still not good.

There have only been five worthy book-to-movie adaptations ever: Mulan, because it was good, the 1982 Scarlet Pimpernel, because it really captured the essence of the book, the BBC Pride and Prejudice, because it was word-for-word, the 2005 Pride and Prejudice, because I thought it did a really great job of cutting down P&P into 2 hours, and it, too captured the essence of the book, and The Lord of the Rings, because it was WONDERFUL.

That's it. Howl's Moving Castle and Children of Men were both great movies in themselves, but so different from the books that I can't even compare the two, and off the top of my head, that's it as far as decent book-to-movies go.

Manga often end up being the same way. Lovely Complex is good, so is Loki, so is Damurai Deeper Kyo (for music and Kyo's very sexy voice actor if nothing else). Trinity Blood actually follows the books pretty well, but it's part of such a huge deal that it almost seems to be part of the canon itself, since there are books, manga, and anime, all covering, for the most part, different things. Ouran was hysterical but still not good enough, though I did like the way it swung HaruTamaki. Live action dramas tend to be okay, simply because they are always very, very different from the manga simply because of their format, and they're always fun and seem to capture the basic essence of the plot, but never try to stick to closely to it.

My favorite anime are actually the ones not based on manga: Samurai 7, Witch Hunter Robin, etc.

My favorite manga, other than Love*Com, seem to make awful anime. Let's not een talk about Angel Sanctuary, and you see how I feel about RK.

I comfort myself by saying that anime (and even movies for that matter) is really simply a giant work of fanon: fanfiction, fanart, AMV, and some original music, usually very good, all pulled together and with the author's permission. Like Les Mis, only Boublil and Schonberg, gods that they are, didn't get permission from Hugo.

And that's that.

Dad and I went to the fair to see Don MacLean--the guy who wrote American Pie and a trillion other fantastic songs.

It was a free concert, and it was fantastic. He sang a lot of his own stuff, and a lot of other stuff: Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Ray O-something-or-other...and, of course, American Pie. It was a lot of fun. We had a great time.

Dad and I don't like the fair very much--it's dirty and loud and everything. But we got ice cream, rode the double ferris wheel, and had the concert. And that was pretty much all we needed of the fair. It was a lot of fun.

Dad and I were supposed to hang out today, too, after we went to work, but then I still have swim team at 5 despite having time trials this morning. *grrr* I be angry. So we'll hang out tonight and tomorrow morning, I guess. This'll really be the last time we can hang like we have--we've always done it the day or two before school starts.

On the other hand,Paolo Nutini is coming to the Val Air Ballroom on October 13, and gothsocks and I are definitely going. Yay! I'm so excited! It sounds like Frenchie might go too, so it'll be fun.

Still have 2 AP Lit books to read. Gah!

Princess Mononoke symphonic suite: AMAZING.

Seriously. I thought the soundtrack was fabulous, but when it's turned into a symphony, with a full symphonic

I am in love.

Something B!YAD thought up today, which really entertained me. I think she's gonna write something about it, which is super-good--I love B!YAD's stuf, even though I've only read one of her poems and her crack!comics (yay Alec!).

Am presently reading Sophie's World, which is a great book about the history of philosophy. Author's last name is Gaarder; check it out. It's great if you like philosophy. I'm totally hooked.

Have recently become re-addicted to the song "Dirty Little Secret," by The all-American Rejects. At the moment, it's spurring a lot of inspiration for some Tomoe/Enishi fics, which is my RK "I'm a sick bastard" pairing. *grin* The scary part is that I'm practically inspired enough to go for it.

Well, we'll wait and see. I actually want to do homework tonight, so you know, I may actually be productive. I do have a math test tomorrow, and I'm kinda worried...but stuff is starting to make sense, so I think I'll be okay.

To prove I am not dead, here is a bit of the next Dark Roses chapter. Unfortunately, this is just about it, so anyone who follows it will have to wait some more. A chapter by Spring break, I swear to God!

Chapter 19: Action )

So. Funfun.

I think that's about all right now, whee.

For the past seven days: from Monday to Sunday, I have spent more time at school than I have anywhere else. How screwy is that?

NaNoWriMo is's coming along, I guess, and that's all good and wonderful. The goal is a thousand words a day, and I'll have that soon. I've decided every time I touch the file I'll at at least 500 words, if not more.

Just discovered Rammstein. Wow. Pretty damn cool, if I may say so. I like them a lot. My musical tastes are really expanding, especially with the discovery of LimeWire; now I can get music I've always wanted to check out but have never gotten the chance to because I'm consistently broke. For a while there, I was into a lot of hard rock/heavy metal, and then I went more mellow, but now I'm liking them both and intermixing them. Also, Sting's new ablum is pretty firkcin' fabulous; he redid a bunch of John Dowland's--a Renaissance composer--with a friend of his, and they both play the lute. The CD's called Songs From the Labyrinth. Check it out; it's really amazing. The music is georgeous.

So that's that. I'll probably update another chapter of horrors soon, maybe even tonight, so keep a sharp eye. Other than that, don't expect much from me this week. I have a huge AP Euro project due on Friday and, of course, there's NaNoWriMo, and then I have to clean my room before CBLL and my movie weekend. So ta-da!
