This a random post full of randomness cause Tai had a very painful and shitty day today (nutshell version: a metal door sliced through the top of my toe, practically ripping off the nail and I had to limp around campus all day like a moron) and so did not finish typing up her proper post and instead decided to blog about a bunch of random but awesome videos she watched and do a meme instead.

1) Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/bands [fannish etc.] that you've had an obsessive fannish love or interest in at some time in your life. [Mine is edited for things with large casts of characters.]
2) Have your f-list guess your favourite character/member from each item.
3) When someone guesses correctly, strikethrough the item and put the name of your favorite character next to it.

As you can all see I've recently gotten into It's Always Sunny, I'll go into detail about that in the next post. Since I know I have a diverse flist I threw out a random mix of older and newer fandoms so everyone can participate.

1. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia [ profile] acidpenguin46 got it right. It's the crazy and unfortunate Charlie. I just cant help but adore him <3
2. Community (I love them all but there is two that I love a little more than the others, guess one or both!) [ profile] wingstodust got this one! Britta and Abed :)
3. Leverage (I love everyone, especially the 3 kids but only one has my heart) [ profile] darkeyedwolf said it. It's quirky crazy awesome Parker!
4. Skins (I have two faves for skins gen 1 and and one for skins gen 2) [ profile] acidpenguin46 got them both! For Gen it's Chris and Cassie and for Gen 2 it's JJ.
5. True Blood (no it's not eric) [ profile] darkeyedwolf guessed it. It's Lafeyette <3
6. Ashes to Ashes (this one might be a little tougher than LOM but still relatively easy)[ profile] acidpenguin46 guessed this one. Shaz
7. Life on Mars (there's really only two answers for this, sam or gene. the fun part is guessing which one is my favorite ;D ) [ profile] acidpenguin46 go it. It's Sam :)
8. The Mentalist (this one isnt an obvious answer)
9. Modern Family (this one really makes the show for me)
10. Avatar: the last airbender (so many great characters, but only one favorite)
11. Lost (I used to love this show. keep in mind when guessing that I havent seen S4-5) [ profile] darkeyedwolf got it! It's Sawyer. and extra points to anyone and [ profile] sibarita got my second fave. the lovely Sun
12. Discworld Series (I'll be generous. No it's not Death. Although I am very fond of him)
13. Lord of the Rings (there are again two you could guess and get the answer right) [ profile] kipani_mariko Mari got em both! cause she's a cheater. Aragorn & Eowyn.
14. TOKIO (I suspect most wont even know what this is) [ profile] kipani_mariko got it right. It's Taichi! adorable little pixie that he is.
15. Harry Potter (an old obsession but my love for this character remains) [ profile] bananachipu said it. Luna!
16. Samurai Champloo (one of my fave animes of all time) [ profile] darkeyedwolf got this one too. It's Jin!
17. The Goonies (gotta love the classics) [ profile] sibarita got it! it's Mouth. He's probably the closest of the bunch to how I was as a kid.
18. One Piece (maybe not that easy)[ profile] bananachipu got it right off. It's Zoro.
19. Fruits Basket (back when I read this I liked most of the characters but one in particular resonated with me the most) [ profile] kipani_mariko got it too. It's Rin.
20. Xmen comics (despite so many diff incarnations in this series, my favorite has remained the same)[ profile] bananachipu got it! It's Rogue :D

Some random (but awesome) videos:

I'm sure everyone and their mother has seen this already but I dont care. It's still awesome. I only wish they hadnt made one of the sharpest female characters of all time (Elizabeth) into a weepy shrill creature. It's for humorous purposes I know but I would have laughed alot harder if Elizabeth decided on her own to drop Darcy's poncy severe ass, jump into the quattro with Gene and ride off into the regency sunset. Still the image of Gene trying to enforce laws in his usual way in the idyllic fields of regency england, and then shooting Darcy is pretty freakin hilarious I must say. and good to know that Jon Culshaw is as fantastic at his impressions as ever. I actually miss seeing him in clips imitating people. I havent seen him in anything for a while. (I really hope he does more skits where he plays Gene. Really considering how popular the character is, what took him so long!?)

I think this is possibly one of the coolest things I've ever seen and I want everyone to see it too. The universe is beautiful. I had a big fascination with planets and space as a kid. A part of me still does but the rest moved on to more earthly interests. Still taking astrology next year though!

I also took the time today to alter my layout. Lovely katie mcgrath is in the header. It's not perfect I'm still trying to figure out how to color the entire top bar and I dont like the green for the entry titles. Otherwise though it's lookin good I'd say.

First day back at College for me. Right now I'm blogging during my lunch break like a true geek/nerd. So far classes seem like they will go well, I havent attended my final class of the day yet which starts in 2 hours. So since I still have no viable transportation to and from school (let's not talk about how many times I've failed the driving test now) and I dont intend to walk 3 miles to get to my house. I'm stuck here. Perfect opportunity to blog about Sunday's episode of True Blood!

True Blood 09: This week's ep was INCREDIBLE. I remember reading a very glowing review about ep 9 a few days before it aired, in a tv mag I forgot which one but it was full of awe and respect for the series and I was like is she talking about the same show I'm watching? Cause I love true blood it's alot of fun but I'd never describe it as deep or meaningful but the reviewer did. After I saw this episode I understand why she did and she is totally right. True Blood was elevated to a whole other level Sunday night and I was impressed and let me tell you flist I am not easily impressed at all. This episode was game-changing, heartbreaking and completely elevated my opinion of the show (as well as the writers, actors, & alan ball) and what it could be. Basically if you're on my flist and dont watch this show, I'd recommend you start now because I think it's totally worth it to get to this point. Especially Season 2 itself has been very enjoyable whereas S1 I felt was nice but didnt become must see television for me until the final few eps of that season.

Highlights of the episode: Here comes the sun )

I will also say now I do enjoy the Mary Ann storyline and amazed at how most people cant stand it. It is a fascinating storyline and character when you actually pay attention closely to who Mary Anne is and more importantly what she represents, WHY she's so evil, WHY she's a bad thing. Like the philosophy that she goes by, why is it so bad and is it in fact all bad? (cause I think in fact it's not) Mary Ann is bad and must be stopped not cause she wants to enslave earth or kill all humans or open a portal to hell or some stereotypical supernatural villain shit but because she is a vision of selfishness, hedonism and chaos. There's something about Mary Ann... ) Basically in Mary Ann's mind she is saving everyone, making everyone happier in becoming her disciples. She's a really fascinating complex antagonist and that's my favorite kind. So I really cant tell why so many people hate this storyline cause if you look at it beyond the surface it's not just all town orgies, crazy parties and Mary Ann traipsing around talking about feelings to everyone and feeding people creepy food like "hunter souffle".

Also a meme! Been meaning to do this one for a while:
Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

You can really ask me about ANY fandom. My fandoms have spread across at least 3 continents (america, europe, asia) so really you can ask me my faves for just about anything from any medium and I'll probably be able to come up with some kind of answer.

Doing a meme since I havent done one in a while.

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, answer these questions. You can't use the band that I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as "my life according to (band name)"

Pick your Artist: Gravenhurst

Are you a male or female? Diane
Describe yourself: She Dances (then she dances, skirt swaying in the half light, she dances, white blossom in the black sky. "i need new clothes" she thinks, "new skin, I mind I can bear to live in. to live in")
How do you feel? Underfoot
Describe where you currently live? Western Lands
If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Down River
Your favorite form of transportation: Tunnels
Your best friend is: Herne the Hunter
You and your best friends are: Animals
What's the weather like?: Flashlight Seasons
If your life was a TV show, what would it be called? Internal Travels
What is life to you? Hourglass
Your relationship: A Call to Arms
Your fear: The Silent Age
Thought for the Day: Trust (is hard to come by these days)
How I would like to die: Ice On Black Water
My soul's present condition: Damage
My motto: I turn my face to the forest floor

This was strangely very fun and also surprisingly therapeutic. Of course this IS one of my most favorite bands. but now I have strong desire to do this with Arcade Fire songs next. We'll see.

For shits and giggles I'll tag some people to do this: [ profile] sibarita, [ profile] meganbmoore, [ profile] kaede_hikari, [ profile] bakabanri, [ profile] ashkt, [ profile] jigglykat, [ profile] araanaz9, [ profile] cranberrysheep, [ profile] cobblestones, [ profile] dioraddictxx, [ profile] ohvienna, [ profile] arcady, [ profile] tardisdoll
of course participation is entirely optional

Also in case anyone wants to add me there, I have a dreamwidth:
I have successfully (mostly) and with great effort managed to transfer an lj layout onto my dw account, via tampering with some very complicated code. No I did not suddenly become advanced at html programming over night. I used this: very handy tutorial. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to import an lj layout onto dreamwidth.

I also have at least 1 dreamwidth invite code so if anyone wants that then say so. first come first serve, unless someone I really like comes after you asking for it in which case tough shit. I few people I like that much though so odds are in your favor.

I'm working on my english essay right now and I've been working on and off for the past week or so on 3 different posts for this lj and have yet to get any done .__. (a post about k8 pairings, a dramas post and some topics given to me recently by the lovely koneho <3) I'm actually the closest to being done with the last thing on that list. But because I missed blogging so much and this meme sounds super interesting. I decided to post!

- Describe me in one word... just one single word. Positive or negative.

- Leave your word in a comment before looking at what words others have used.

-Then copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people will describe you when limited to one word.

Also THIS: is the most hilarious uwasa I've seen in a while. I laughed SO hard. Especially since my reaction to the original rumor this article refers to, was "PFFFT AS IF becky would date him!" and then LOL when she finds out her reaction is more or less the same. Becky: tegoshi? hahahahaha and now tego is afraid of women wtf XD of course that's where it's obviously a lie but I wouldnt surprised if the "ero-prince" didnt have his ego hurt a bit by that. way to go becky!

A. People who have been tagged must, if they choose to participate, write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.
Please italicize the new question if you do that.

01. What are your nicknames?
Tai, Tai-chan, Taiyaki, taitai, Taichou, Maitai, nee-chan

02. How does your hair look like currently?
wavy, and kinda flat. Today is hair washing day.

03. What's new in your life right now?
new semester starts in a day, my new laptop arrives today or tomorrow...that’s it.

04. How many colors are you wearing now?

05. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I am both, seriously. I’m either one or the other at any given moment. It just depends on my mood and my comfort level in the area I’m in. I prefer to be an extrovert though

06. What was the last book you read?
and actually finished? I totally cant remember. I think it was this book about an Indian American girl…”born confused” I think it was called. I read a lot but rarely fiction novels as I tend to never finish them :/

07. Do you nap a lot?
On dull days where I feel lethargic yes. On other days when I’m alert and happy and have stuff to do, I don’t at all

08. If you had to have a one night stand with someone famous, who would you like it to be?
I definitely don’t HAVE to have one night stands with anyone. I don’t like the idea of them personally. Yes this is internet meme question and I’m taking it too seriously but it’s either this answer or Eito orgy/lesbian spree through all my fave female idols and actresses and musicians. Seriously I have a thing for too many people XD.

09. Is there anything that has made you happy these days?
not much, this past week has been tough on me. But yesterday, something made me rather happy. Oh and when I get my new netbook I’ll be happy.

10. What's your current obsession?
Kanjani8..pretty much. I like a lot of things but that’s the only one I’d call an “obsession”

11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
10-20 minutes. More if I’m really sleep and less if I had my stuff planned out before hand.

12. What websites do you visit daily?
yahoo mail, livejournal ß is the only stuff I visit daily. I have a few other sites I like to visit now and then. Like and mcsweeney’s, and every now and then I go on YT clips binges or vist mysoju to watch a drama.

13. Do you write fic? What was the last fic you wrote?
I did write one recently though I normally don’t, I aint sayin the name here though since when I post it I don’t want anyone to know I wrote it XD. As for original fiction I do a lot of fragments and short stories and things that I prefer not to spread around. It’s more for myself than anything else. I like writing poems too but the inspiration for them comes to me very sporadically.

14. What's the last thing you laughed about?
My ‘payment’ to a friend of mine since she did me a favor. Her request made me LOL, you’ll all see what it is soon enough.

15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head?
hoshi mono wa, I was watching a subbed version of it yesterday and it’s really stuck on me lately

16. What's the last movie you saw?
I so cant remember, I think it was The Duchess? I watch so much stuff on a regular basis that I cant remember everything XD

17. Would you enter a relationship with your ideal partner, even if you knew he/she was seriously involved with/married to someone else and would never leave them?
My “ideal” would not be someone who’d be willing to cheat on their spouse with me. I find that very low to be honest. And no one I like would be ok with it at all. Besides I cant fall in love with someone who’s already involved cause I'm too proud to settle for being someone’s “other woman”. It’s either me only or I’m not interested.

18. What is your least favorite thing to do that you did today?
going anywhere on rainy days. And I have to go to a meeting today even though the weather is atrocious and makes me feel like hibernating in my room all day.

I’m not tagging anyone as I’m so not in the mood. If you wanna do it. Do it.

I changed my layout yesterday. It's kind of lame but my lj needed a change. Only problem is I'm kind of blanking on what to do for my userinfo. i lost pretty much all my graphics and so far only recovered a fraction of them due inability to access my dead laptop's HD. I'm more sad about the graphics my friends custom made for me though since i can get alot of them off the comm again but some i cant get to since the links are dead or entry's now locked. -_- *sigh*
