arthoniel: (TWEWY- Joshua being sexy)

8-10 PAGE SATIRE PAPER: not-quite-as-large-a-majority-but-still-a-majority DONE!

I know, I'm shocked too. It's all crap, all of it. But I still have it, and that's what's important.

I'm not 100% done with everything though, so to those of you who have them... keep those inspirational GIFs coming!! No, seriously, I love them all. They're all made of utter win.

So I was going to the restroom earlier. It was about 1 in the morning. And outside the bathroom door, I see a girl who lives on my floor. She was blowing bubbles and playing with them- trying to catch them and stuff. I love college.

Finally, this is still my favorite piece of logic in the world: Haruhi Suzumiya is a French aristocrat, therefore, I like pomegranites.  :D

I will leave you all now with a wonderful quote from Axis Powers: Hetalia (dubbed), because I can. And because it's awesome.
America (to Britain, concerning his new fighter jet plane bomber thing): "Thanks! It was actually created to help me beat the holy hell out of you, so I'm glad you dig its style!"
America's servant/advisor/guy: "'Scuse me, but was that information supposed to stay a secret?"
America: "It sure was!"

^Pretty much sums up my country.

So, Hetalia Day was today... in New York.

For obvious reasons, I wasn't there.

I'm so glad all of you who went had an amazing time!! I keep seeing the statuses on Facebook, the posts on here, and it sounds like it was wonderful, and I'm so happy for you!

I just wish I could have been there too. I miss you all so much. So much. I mean, Brandeis is fun and all, but... I used to see you all, like, every fortnight. And now... I saw you at NYAF. But not before then. And it'll be a while before I see you again. At least a month. And I miss you so, so much.

So, um... of my NYC Hetalians, do any of you have Skype or something?? I just... I want to hear your voices again.

...This may be me just being over-emotional, or the background music I'm listening to affecting me (it's my movie score Pandora channel, and it had one of the depressing themes from a movie on... you know, one of the ones that they play when the protagonist has hit rock bottom before they start to climb again) so I may look at this again later and wonder what the hell I was on.  XD

...I'm not kidding about wanting your Skypes though. It would just be nice to really talk to someone who's on the same level of nerddom as me~

Also, from Hetalia Day, I want to see pics. Particularly of the Flying Mint Bunny cosplayer, because...!! IT'S A FLYING MINT BUNNY COSPLAYER. That is all.  XD

ETA: I have found THE BEST WEBSITE IN THE WORLD, thanks to MLIA. IT'S AMAZING. Seriously, check it out. It won't take up much of your time.  :D
arthoniel: (Default)

Well, we may not have made it to the World Series. But we still had a pretty good run this year.

...And we'll get it next year~

(I so highly doubt that Robertson will be among those getting there with us, though. Damn, it's pretty safe to say that he kind of blew three of the games we lost this series for us. And if the Yankees don't sign Cliff Lee, I will be shocked. Just sayin'.)

But yes. It's all good. We still got next year!

...And it's still a ton of fun being that girl, walking around Massachussetts with a Yankee cap on, during the postseason.  XD

In other, non-baseball related news, I finally tagged my entries from the past few months, when I just didn't want to bother doing it. I'm so proud of myself for catching up on those!

Tomorrow (well, technically today) is Hetalia Day. And I won't be there. Which is just strange. But... I'll be calling in to it, so I guess it's all good. And for the rest of the day, time I would have spent at the meetup, I will be introducing a friend to Hetalia, which is incredibly appropriate, and going to see The Social Network. (Which I really don't have the money for, but... I've just heard that it's so good.)

Lastly, I was looking for movie soundtrack music the other day, and I somehow ended up registered with Pandora. I don't know how that happened, but I now have a movie music channel on Pandora, and I love it. It's now playing one of the themes from Star Trek: 2009, and that just makes me all kinds of happy. (The saddest part is that I can visualize in my head exactly what's going on in the movie when this particular theme plays.  XD)
arthoniel: (Ouran- God's busy)

New York is literally the single greatest place in the world. It really just is.

Also, no. The fact that I'm technically an adult now isn't a reason to not continue to play with dolls and action figures. As proven by the fact that I still get plenty of fun out of my Star Trek, Twilight (yes, I do own them) and Hetalia action figures and dolls.

Hey, do any of you remember that "Secret Life of Dolls" thing I did a while back? The one that was totally ripped off of cleolinda, but I still did it because I like taking pictures of my action figures as if they're doing things in real life... anyone remember those? Did you like them? Is it worth taking up again? Because I would totally do that. Even if it would totally freak out my roommates.  XD

...I should really update my tags on here and stuff. But... eh. Work. I'll deal with it later.  XD

Lastly, finally, and awesomely, I've finally uploaded my New York Comic Con/New York Anime Fest pics. Come have a look! (That link should be public... if it's not, let me know, and I'll upload the best of them here~)
arthoniel: (Apollo Justice- I can percieve the truth)

Romeo X Juliet is the most adorable series ever. Save for maybe Ouran. But... slkdfjlsdkjfsd I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

...No, I haven't been rewatching Romeo X Juliet again for, like, the zillionth time. What are you talking about?  XD

sldkjfsdlk Why is it not next week yet? I want it to be NYAF/NYCC!! I miss my New York cosplay family so much. I mean, I love my friends here too and all, but... that's my cosplay family at home. And I love them. And I miss them. So, so much. I really don't understand why it's not Friday yet.

BUT! Talking about NYAF/NYCC, I finally have a cosplay list finalized!! So, without further ado...

Friday: Lady Juliet Fiamatta Ars de Capulet (Romeo X Juliet)
Saturday: Gaila (Star Trek: 2009) (...She's the green chick who sleeps with Kirk)
Sunday: Colbertica a.k.a. Stephen Colbert!America (The Colbert Report/Axis Powers: Hetalia), but I may also change into Liz Thompson (Soul Eater) at the end, to coordinate with some friends, and to travel back to Boston in.

*le sigh* I be so lonely out here... and I miss my New York cosplay friends. So, so, so much. I really don't understand why it's not next weekend yet.

Stole'd from [ profile] pyffamus_prime:

Comment here and I'll give four fandoms. You then have to write a new entry talking about your favourite character from each one!

The World Ends With You, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Axis Powers Hetalia and Fruits Basket )

I guess I just tend to like people who aren't quite as they seem. Which doesn't really seem too good for me, all in all.  XD

Also... since I finally have a webcam and I want to play with it...

Ask me a question! Any question! Or maybe give me a request- anything! Within reason, I'll do it/answer it. On camera. Because I can. Because I have it and want to play with it. So go crazy! And... if you've asked me a question on one of these before, but I never actually followed through and posted it because I've never posted a video of me to this before because I'm lazy, then go ahead and remind me of that, and I'm sorry.  XD
arthoniel: (Ouran- God's busy)

I was on a movie tour of San Francisco the other day (we were all in a bus, they'd show us clips from movies that were shot in San Francisco, then they'd take us to the place where they were filmed... we also saw the That's So Raven house. For any of you who also enjoy old school Disney TV) and... at one point our tour guide turned to a couple of people from England and said "FAIRIES DON'T EXIST." It made slightly more sense in context... but it was just too awesome to not tell all of you about.

Yesterday, we all had dinner at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory here in San Francisco on Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39. Because, you know, it's not at all like we could have done that at home. (For those of you who don't know, there's one of those in Times Square.) But, that being said... it's still sweet, there's still Forrest Gump everywhere which is just a beautiful movie, and then there was a little Forrest Gump trivia thing that the waitress did with us... and we literally got every single question right. Every. Single. One. I am so proud of my family and I. And these are really obscure questions too. Like (don't look it up)... when Jenny and Forrest get married, what color shoes was she wearing?

Today, I was at a Chinese restaurant (it's not so bad... San Francisco DOES have a famous Chinatown, after all... but it's still not quite like New York Chinese food) and sitting in a booth nearby me, there were two people who I swear were pretty much Lavi and Krory from D.Gray-man. Except they were women. And they were old. But still. It was the hair.  XD

-It's really, really easy to get raped here. Just... SO many small, dark alleys, and they are EVERYWHERE.
-Poverty and homelessness and panhandling are super prevalent here. WAY more so than New York.
-I thought I knew what fog is before I came here. I didn't know what fog is. NOW I know what fog is.
-There are trees that are older than our knowledge of the Americas. And I have seen them. And they're pretty huge. But not as huge as I was told they would be. That being said, those trees have probably already been cut down.
-The local TV stations here are AWESOME, constantly having reruns of Friends, Scrubs, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Finally, before I end this... I have a habit of falling for the worst guys, don't I? Not that they're bad guys- not at all! They're just always guys who don't/can't fall for me in return. I should really cut that out. I just wish it was something that was more of a choice.  :/

...My sleep schedule is going to be SO screwed up when I get back home.
arthoniel: (Heroes- Sylar Wants Me for my Brain)

On the side of my screen, there's an ad for French's. I don't know what French's is, or what it does, or why one would buy it, but... HEEHEE FRANCE. Also, there are potatoes on that ad, and they look delicious.

-Began and finished Fullmetal Alchemist.
-Began and caught up to the dub of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and bought the DVDs of the first part. (Episodes 1-13)
-Finished Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler, and watched the first two episodes of Kuroshitsuji II. (Damn, what the hell, Alois?? That's just... no. But UNF CLAUDE. Honestly, overall, not quite as much as Sebastian... but still, unf.)
-Began and finished Baccano. (And now I am totally going to cosplay either Ennis or Mira. I would need someone to be my Firo or Issac, respectively, but... yes.) ([ profile] starsandtildes, I hope you're reading this~)

-Pretty much finished my Uzuki cosplay. I just need to dye the gloves and I'll be done. (Jonesy, I hope you're reading this~)
-Set up my plans for Otakon.
-Flailed muchly over a certain VA that everyone knows I'm in love with.

I think I have had a productive... er... length of time.  XD
arthoniel: (Ouran- Realistic Kyouya)

And what I'm saying here is...


And do you know why I'm so adamant about it this year? Because *ahem* today, it was announced that...


France has a new fangirl now. Because he is just so awesome.

...That is all.
arthoniel: (Heroes- High five!)

All I will say is, as a Hetalia fan, soon I will be able to use the phrase "THE SHIT HATH HITTETH THE FAN... ETH." And, as much as I love my fandom, I will defend FUNimation to the death~

In other news... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!! Congrats on turning 234! And happy Independance Day to all other Americans on my flist~

I'm going to be in Hartford, Connecticut next weekend. But I can't go to ConnectiCon. I find this ridiculously ironic. But I'll still be at Otakon! Bought my ticket last night~ Now I just need to get my bus tickets, and find out how much I'll owe my friend for the room she's letting me stay in with her...  :D

So I had a dream last night where I was dating Jackson Rathbone. And it was... strange. But stranger still was that it wasn't entirely unpleasant. I am confuse.

P.S. I (read: my dad) ordered my new laptop today. It'll be here, at the latest, on the 22nd. And it's awesome.  *_*

ETA: P.P.S. Also... I dunno if I mentioned this already, but... I'm watching Fullmetal Alchemist for the first time now. (Starting with the original series.) And it's AWESOME. And UNF ROY MUSTANG. And episodes 6, 13, and 37 are pretty much the best things ever. And I'm totally cosplaying Riza Hawkeye now.  :D

arthoniel: (Heroes- Unnecissary)

...You know, you would think that preparing for a class project where I get to be a lawyer would be more fun. But no. It's really not. After hours of working on my 20 minute (20 minute!!) opening statement, I now get to move on to my 3-4 page paper, 1.5 spaced, 12 pt font. *sighs* The worst part is that it's really my own fault. I've had this for ages. I just... didn't work on it. It really is my own fault. I hate it when that happens.

On the bright side... [ profile] acedressing  [ profile] acedressing  [ profile] acedressing . Why yes, that IS a new Ace Attorney Dressing Room, much like the one I got my start RPing in~!

And finally, although they do not give us voices, they DO give us a date for... 

arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)
So apparantly FUNimation has APH. Which is awesome. If anyone was going to dub Hetalia, my preference would be that it's FUNimation. I just wish that I could be working on it too...

But. Being the voice actor obessed fangirl that I am... here's how I'd cast it:

N. Italy- Todd Haberkorn (Hikaru Hitachiin- Ouran High School Host Club, Allen Walker- D.Gray-man, Watanuki... uh... I don't remember his last name. But from xxxHOLiC)
Germany- Travis Willingham (Takashi Morinozuka- Ouran High School Host Club, Yuu Kanda- D.Gray-man)
Japan- J. Michael Tatum (If this really surprises any of you, you don't know me very well) (Kyouya Ootori- Ouran High School Host Club, Komui Lee- D.Gray-man, William totally-not-Shakespeare- Romeo X Juliet, Domeki... screw it, I don't know last names in xxxHOLiC)

America- Chris Burnett (Romeo- Romeo X Juliet)
France- John Burgmeier (Shigure Sohma- Fruits Basket, Tetsuya Sendo- Ouran High School Host Club)
England- This is the biggest stretch, but Eric Vale (Fff. I'm not even gonna start listing everything I know he's been in. Most notably though, Yuki Sohma- Fruits Basket and Fransisco- Romeo X Juliet)
China- Caitlin Glass (Haruhi Fujioka- Ouran High School Host Club)
Russia- Possibly the biggest surprise here, but Vic Mignogna (Tamaki Suoh- Ouran High School Host Club, Edward Elric- Fullmetal Alchemist... and I'm gonna stop there. I couldn't even think of listing everything he's been in)

What do you guys think?
arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)
Previously, on Secret Life of Dolls...

Surprisingly enough, not much has changed. It might be having something to do with the fact that Edward doesn't sleep, and therefore doesn't really need a place to sleep or a Shelf to stay on or whatever, but he's... been getting by. And then Will, Data and Japan are running the Shelf like a real Star Fleet ship. They don't have that much to do, since there isn't anything that'll really lead to universal doom here... but they're doing various things- scientific missions and whatnot. I never thought there was so much to learn about my radiator... but it's occupied them for a solid month.

Meanwhile, Edward has clearly been getting more and more bored. You can tell by what he's been doing in his now endless amounts of free time. I'll wake up one day to find a stack of papers that was a mess the night before be all neat. One day I woke up to find my pens lined up in size and color order. Or another day I woke up to find all my music CDs (yes, I do still have some of those) organized in the order of when they came out by year, then what was his preference in that time frame. And he's been practicing with Data's violin too (although I'm not sure whether or not he has his permission to do it...) so the other day he was just standing by the window, looking out on the New York City street, playing Bella's Lullaby perfectly.

Then yesterday, he was looking outside the window again (I think the windowsill is his favorite place in my room), when, out of nowhere, Japan walked up to him.

Japan "...Mr. Cullen?"
The irony that someone was watching Edward this time, instead of the other way around, was not lost on me. )
arthoniel: (Random- Flower)
Alright everyone, this one's fairly self-explanatory- it's not all of them, but here's a bunch of my favorite pics from New York Anime Fest '09!! If you don't want to deal with all of these here, I have them all up on my Facebook, if you wanna see it~

arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)
Previously, on Secret Life of Dolls...

Edward was by the window (it was a cloudy day, so no sparkle) when Will began dragging in the command chair. He was preoccupied as Japan noticed what was going on, and then alerted Data, who quickly went over to help Will move the chair. He was otherwise engaged as the command chair was set up on the Shelf. But when he tried to go over to the Shelf to... not sleep, but relax, and was stopped by Riker telling him he needed to ask for permission to board the Shelf, he was more than a little curious as to what was going on.

Edward "Well, I am... more than a little curious. What exactly is going on?"

arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)

Previously, on Secret Life of Dolls…

So now that Data’s “protecting” Japan (although Japan has more than shown he can take care of himself) the Shelf has returned to normal. And it’s peaceful and quiet and nice… and then someone knocks on the door.

“Come in!!”

And… nobody enters. In fact, the door doesn’t even open. And, in my annoyance, I go over to the door to tell whoever it was out there off for not saying anything… and no one’s there. And then I look down.

Ah. Did you... want me to attack him? )
arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)
Oh... the one day of the year I'm allowed to truly be proud to be an American.

...As I immerse myself with Japanese culture and entertainment.  XD

I know I haven't posted in over a week, and I have so much to post about, and absolutely no time to write it, so all I'll say for today is...

arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)

Previously, on Secret Life of Dolls...

I ran to shut the window as Edward and Data fought. In hindsight, I probably should have, you know, stopped them from fighting first or something, but... well, you know what they say, hindsight is 20/20. In my own defense, I didn't exactly want another breeze rolling in and tempting Edward again.

And that is when I realized that I will only ever be surrounded by cold, calculating people. )
arthoniel: (SLOD- Japan)
Edward and Data were getting along... better. Not as perfectly as they used to, but at least now Edward isn't running away from Data all the time, screaming about how Data can't understand how it feels, and generally being ridiculous. He's still a drama queen king and misses Bella, but... well, that's actually kinda understandable. I mean, missing the love of your existance? Yeah, that's kinda a valid reason to be sad. But they've been getting along better, and Data has even been teaching Edward to play the violin! (Pictures avaliable upon request.) And... well, it hurts the ears to hear him play, but I want to encourage good behaviour from him. And then he turns to me out of the blue while practicing.

Edward "Well, of course I sound like a beginner! I am a beginner! Although the part about cat nails scratching a blackboard is entirely unnecissary."


Data "I have no record of her saying anything recently in my memory banks."

Edward "But I clearly just heard you say.... Unless... but I can't hear either your or Data's thoughts..."

And then the door opened, and in walked...

I have been here all of five minutes, and already my honor has been destroyed... )
