Apparently there's going to be a(n American) Full Metal Panic movie. With Zach Efron. Yeah.

...okay then.

(Also, Cold Things Can't Feel Love aka Twilight The Musical. Watch it. Love it. It's HILARIOUS. Be warned, though, it has tons of in-jokes from both the books - including Midnight Sun, hi Lonnie! - and the movies - 'Jacob's terrible wig, anyone?)

The Cambiata are awesome. Just saying.

It's fascinating to watch my boss get angry. He gets more and more energetic, but it continues to be an upbeat sort of energy, even when he's really upset. Very weird. (No, he wasn't angry at me, thank goodness.)

Three random links I am totally stealing from [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda:

THE AWESOME: . It's funny because it's so true.

THE NOT-SO-AWESOME: In fact, put me down as one of those whose reaction is something along the lines of NOOOOOOO! or perhaps WHYYYYYYYYY? Keanu Reeves set to play Spike Spiegel in a live action Cowboy Bebop movie. DAMMIT, FOX. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. I don't necessarily dislike Keanu - or at least, not that much - but he is not at all a good choice for Spike. *sigh*

THE CRAZY-YET-AWESOME: The worst comic book, and best worst comic book line, ever. NOT SAFE FOR WORK, SCHOOL, OR SENSITIVE OR INNOCENT PEOPLE. You've been warned.

Hey, all. It's been a while. Not a whole lot to report? Microdyne goes as it goes. There's a whole complicated thing which has resulted me in switching to customer service. Not because I was doing badly in tech support, but because...well, this customer service contract uses the same people as the tech support contract I am (was) on, but most of the people HATE this customer service contract. So the 'assistant manager' for it is leaving, and I've been tapped to replace her. It means a lot more work, but whatever....it'll keep me busy, which makes the days go by a LOT more quickly and smoothly.

Still stuck on my second Peace Corps essay. Argh!

I did actually write something else, though.

WARNING, SHOJO GEEKINESS AHEAD.

I've been behind, but today I picked up Fruits Basket 17 (actually, I still count as behind since volume 18 is out already). I was a little sad that I already knew the big revelation from this volume....but the moments of absolute adorableness between Kyo and Tohru kind of made up for it. The whapping with the scarf? And the paper flower? I squee-ed. Also, I still love Hanajima. She's probably my favorite character.

But anyway. The last chapter in volume 17 got me thinking again about Shigure's motivations. They are still sort of unclear, yes? And I realized I had a theory. And instead of simply blathering on about this theory, I decided to write a short fanfic explicating it. It was originally going to be a conversation between Shigure and Ayame, where Shigure basically came clean about what he's really after. But even if that was in-character for Shigure (doubtful), I realized about two sentences in that I wouldn't be able to write something like that with any kind of grace. So I went a little understated, while still being sort of painfully obvious.

It's rather terrible, but I am attached to my idea of Shigure's motivation, so I figured I would post it anyway. No actual spoilers, as such, but will make marginally more sense after reading volume 17. Critique is more than welcome, as always.

Just watched all of Saikano (ALL of it). There are shows with happy endings, and shows with ambiguous endings, and shows that just end badly, but I've never seen a show that ends on a note that is so depressing it horrified me, until now. I have no words......

I feel like watching Eva now to *cheer myself up* (except I don't own Eva), it's that bad.

I should get to bed. Later, all!

P.S. My car is running reasonably okay again. Yay!

ah, anime

Ambiguous endings aside, do you know what I like about 'philosophical' anime? That when it poses a question like 'what is human nature?' it doesn't pretend to fully answer it. The question becomes the important thing. That's why I approve of 'Wind Named Amnesia'. Dated animation like whoa, but interesting concept.

...yep, that's all I wanted to say. I can get my car tomorrow, yay!
