And FMA went out with, well...

FMA 108 Spoilers )

PS: In what was very surprising news to me, Supernatural is being turned into an anime. I have expressed no interest in the show itself up till now, but my interest is piqued (on a less mature note, odds on a Doctor Who anime just got slashed :D ).

Hello to my new friends from the Fandom Secrets friending meme! *waves*

I've somehow managed to hit 90+ hours on Pokemon SoulSilver now, and am currently wondering a) who on Earth is in charge of hiring for Team Rocket because they're serious idiots and b) whose idea it was to turn Togetic into an absolute demon. Also, getting elemental stones from the trainers is a pain in the butt (they don't give you any after you thrash them? What gives?).

FMA 107 was a return to the FMA I know and love after the preceding silliness, and it really is becoming clear just how much BONES knew about the manga ending when making the first anime. Btw, FMA fans on my f-list: my sister stopped reading the manga round about the Ishbal flashback, and is now stuck for a good point to jump back in at. Can anyone recommend a chapter? And does anyone know of a site that does chapter summaries?

I am LOVING Doctor Who so far this series. It actually feels like a proper arc from one episode to the next this time. And I really don't get why people are saying that Amy's sorta wooden. My sister acts a lot like her and she actually does become "wooden" and impassive if she's not directly involved in anything, and yet is completely bonkers and impulsive when she's engaged with either us or people she knows. Same goes for the Tenth Doctor's "overacting" - my brother acts ridiculously over the top on an almost daily basis. And me, I act like a cross between the two most days (maybe a bit of Eleven thrown in). I guess people like the three of us really aren't very common in real life.

In my final month of Uni now, and me and my sister are both gearing up for our final presentations (we're on the same course). After that's done we're going to start working on a project that we've been bouncing around ideas for.

Oh, and I'm a prat - I picked up a case for my DS Lite from GAME's bargain bin this afternoon, and when I got home it turned out to be a DSi only case (in my defence, the packaging says "DSi compatible", not "DSi only"). So I've got to get that exchanged on Tuesday now. Did get some new headphones pretty cheap though, so it wasn't completely wasted.

And yeah, this post is how my brain works at any one time - several different things at once. XD

Watched Pokemon 4Ever today with my brother and sister (it randomly appeared on the TV schedule); the timey whimey would make Steven Moffat proud, especially at the end - I tell ya, three people having the penny drop at the exact same moment is truly something to behold.

But FMA this month... WHAT THE HELL?

Spoilers for FMA 106 )

I've had the Escaflowne movie on my hard drive for about a couple of years now, so I decided to watch it whilst doing Uni work a few days ago. I rather enjoyed it, so being the fan of alternate continuities that I am, I decided to try watching the TV series. I was not expecting to be on episode 22 after 3 days. I was fully expecting to have got to episode 7 and lost interest; but I find myself completely engrossed in the back story and plot. Mind you, the dub has a bit of redundancy problem, although it has a certain charm to it (and it's way better than the X:1999 dub). Also, Van as a kid is cute as a button, which is problematic seeing as these flashbacks tend to happen during moments of dire peril.

I've also been working my way through the first FMA series again and it's still awesome (and I'm still not seeing the major angst here people). Although an exchange in episode 15 is now unintentionally hilarious:

Al: "Brother, what are we going to do now?"
Ed: "I don't know Al, lets just get some distance from that guy with the glasses."

I'm a fan of the That Guy With The Glasses site and ended up having to pause the video to get rid of the resulting mental image.

And whilst we're on the subject, why is it that FMA is reading more and more like one of Rusty's Doctor Who finales? The similarities are so striking it's borderline hilarious.

Spoilers for FMA and a bit of a science rant )

I have read the latest FMA chapter twice.

Major FMA spoilers )

Okay, so it was my birthday on Saturday. I'm not really one for making a fuss over it, so I kinda let it slip by the wayside, but due to me being both anal about facts and too honest for my own good, I felt I ought to mention it - I only mentioned it on the recent [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets friending meme because it was happening on my birthday.

Speaking of which, hi new friends! I'm dropping you all in at the deep end here, as I still haven't mastered the art of being brief. X3;;

Funny hats and Black Mage weapons, amongst other things (slight spoilers for Doctor Who) )

Because lets face it, I need to quit rambling so damn much.

  • Kayli (that rainbow coloured sugary stuff) is surprising good at kicking your brain into gear, even if it doesn't point it in the right direction.
  • Boils on your side are a right pain, especially if they're on the side you like to sleep on. x_X
  • Plaster itches.
  • Visualisation is another pain - why is it so much more demanding that the other pathways?
  • On the other hand, Animation and Games rock - I've got weird creature and a steampunk airship, respectively.
  • SPP not so much, a 3000 word essay due in two weeks, and we need to also sort out research and client project proposals. Good thing we're talking to our Animation lecturer tomorrow.
  • Livejournal doesn't know whether it's up or down. It's almost as bad as the Orange website.
  • Switching over to Sky Broadband tomorrow - hopefully this router will be easier to connect to than the Livebox was. The Wii may end up having to time-share with Dad's laptop (4 computers allowed to connect, max).
  • Still reading Watchmen - intend to finish it before I see it in cinemas.
  • My brain is weird. I still have no idea why I dreamt about David Tennant presenting Comic Relief a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I should lay off reading Doctor Who comms before bed.
  • Said brain is also brilliant at making connections between things and creating plot bunnies. As of now, FMA and Doctor Who are linked together in a way that makes far more sense than it should.
  • Coming up with a fanfic plot for said bunnies is a very good way to get my brain to quit going on about it (well, not as much as it would otherwise).
  • New FMA anime soon yay! Xerxes flashback in manga however is really creepy. o.o
  • Really should rename that 'general' tag.

The Doctor Who fandom predictably explodes, ITV fall flat on their faces yet again, FMA coming back (yay!) and the perils of an active imagination, and I get round to finally posting a picture of me being the complete dork that I am.

Long post again )
 
*sigh* These entries wouldn't be so long if I remembered to actually post more often.
