Reflections of a Dreaming Girl

After watching Ooyama Anza’s famous performance of Namie Amuro’s hit “Body Feels Exit” again (from the unreleased SeraMyu “Rock n’ Rock” live event between SuperS Kaiteiban and Sailor Stars), I decided to check out Namie singing it. I watched a live performance of her singing it since Anza’s performance was also live. And I got to say, Anza got it pretty spot on. Her voice is similar to Namie’s too, which is probably why they picked her to sing it. (Also the fact that Namie can sing AND dance simultaneously like that is pretty good. Not all performers can do that, cause you get winded from the dancing usually).

If you know Anza’s myus, you may notice that the tune of this song is similar to the SeraMyu song “Knockin’ Down Hesitation.” Since Anza’s performance of “Body Feels Exit” happened before the myu “Knockin’” was in started, it’s possible they borrowed the melody. “Body Feels Exit” WAS a really big hit song at the time, and Usagi was supposed to be singing “Knockin’” at a school festival, so maybe that was the myu writers’ way of suggesting Usagi was a Namie Amuro fan. :)

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals. 

Everybody needs to see this

it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever

what is gay about drawing anyway? you’re holding a pencil and sliding it over a bloody piece of paper, it’s not like you’re trying to suck a cock

This is bullshit. Drawing is a fucking skill, just like riding dirtbikes or shooting guns or w/e the hell is “masculine” enough these days.

I showed my best friend the Lauren Cooper/David Tennant Comic Relief clip last night cause she hadn’t seen it. (She’s a Whovian but not really part of the online fandom). While I showed it to her, I learned that she didn’t even know David Tennant was actually Scottish! (Then again, if you’ve only seen him in Doctor Who, you would never know I guess).

Binging on Cedar Cove Season 2

Cause gosh darnit I’m on vacation and I have like the whole season to watch. Cause thanks to my marathon for ClassicWhoWatch, I haven’t been able to watch much normal TV.

Cedar Cove is an awesome show, and very well done for being Hallmark Channel’s first original series. (Usually they do TV movies). Great cast, and easy to follow everyone’s storylines. It’s a romance, and I don’t usually read romance novels, but strangely I don’t mind. And I’ve seen Andie MacDowell in several other things. So glad it got a second season!!

Now that I am in the midst of watching “The Brain of Morbius,” I am having second thoughts about The Linguist spending time with the Sisterhood of Karn shortly after leaving Gallifrey. Then again, if “The Night of the Doctor” is anything to go by, they seem to have gotten less weird and scary by the time of the Time War.

Why The New Ace Attorney Is Set In England | Kotaku Australia

There’s a new Phoenix Wright game coming out…and it involves Sherlock Holmes! It seems to be set in Victorian England and involve a protagonist named Ryunosuke Naruhodou. It’s possible he is related to Phoenix somehow (Phoenix’s Japanese name is Ryūichi Naruhodō…which is possibly a pun, as “Naruhodō” in Japanese means “I see” - as in “Ah, I see” or “Yes, I see”…you can also hear Professor Layton call him “Mr. Naruhodō” [with “Mr” in English] in the main Japanese trailer for Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright). Anyway, sounds interesting!! Well timed too, as Sherlock Holmes just became public domain. At any rate, I imagine they will do the famous character proud; not only is Holmes quite popular in Japan (if animes like Milky Holmes and Detective Conan are any indication) but the guy creating the game is a Holmes fan too, according to this article.

Great works of Western literature are not unknown in Japan; the famous World Masterpiece Theater series, which came back in 2007 from a long hiatus (it had previously run from 1969 to 1997), is entirely made up of anime series adapting great Western literary works, including Anne of Green Gables (Akage no An) and Heidi (Heidi, Girl of the Alps). Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata of Studio Ghibli fame got their starts working for WMT, in fact. (Which also explains why several of Ghibli’s films are based off Western works - namely Laputa - Castle in the Sky [Laputa is an island in Gulliver’s Travels], Howl’s Moving Castle [based off the novel of the same name by the late British author Diana Wynne Jones], Ponyo [a loose retelling of “The Little Mermaid”], Tales of Earthsea [based off the Earthsea novels of Ursula LeGuin], The Secret World of Arietty [based off the novel The Borrowers], and their recent film When Marnie Was There [based on the novel of the same name by Joan G. Robinson]).

Alice in Wonderland is also VERY popular in Japan. You see it referenced in anime and manga a lot. It was one of the first foreign works to be published in Japanese. And Japanese people are also apparently familiar with fairy tales and myths from outside Japan, as they get referenced often. One of the animes I’m watching now, LilPri, makes a lot of references to Snow White (Shirayukihime) and Cinderella (Shinderera).

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
