satoshi_pallas: (start off right)
OBVIOUSLY there are, like, tons and tons of things I should talk about, and OBVIOUSLY that's why I'm going to start with the most important and probably never get to the other stuff.

So here is my last Gundam 00 post for over a year (or, at least, we can hope). Tear.

SPOILERS FOR THE LAST EPISODE EVERRRR )

Aaaand now to go on with my life.
satoshi_pallas: (fantastic circumstances)
GAAAH, I WAS NOT GOING TO MAKE ONE OF THESE POSTS TONIGHT-- IN FACT, I WAS PLANNING NEVER TO MAKE ONE AGAIN-- BUT I JUST. CAN'T. NOT TALK ABOUT IT AUUGH.

Spoilers for 2.21 )

OKAY BACK TO MY REGULAR LIFE.
satoshi_pallas: (start off right)
I watched all of the Oscars last night. Well, I missed the first five minutes, as I had been attempting to get my digital TV to work for the past half hour, but it was refusing to pick up any signal at all. So finally I admitted defeat. "I won't be able to watch the Oscars at all!" I moaned (and I was far more upset about this than I was about possibly not getting into that fiction class, which I think reflects amazingly on me). But then I remembered that I'm awesome and always obtain whatever I go for. So I immediately found an illegal UK stream online and watched that cheerfully for the entire broadcast. Sorry, Academy, but this is the 21st century, and you've got to be ready: Give me a stream on your site, and I'll watch that, 'kay? (Amusingly, I was linked to that streaming site from the Academy's forums.)

So anyway, everyone seemed really gracious at the Oscars this year, and I thought the speeches were actually pretty good for what they usually are. I nearly cried at some of them, seriously. And I was satisfied with everyone who won. Hugh Jackman was also a lot better than I thought he'd be-- Smart move going for performing instead of a comedy routine. (But was I the only one who felt that every time he said something like, "The musical is back!" that he was trying to stab us for getting rid of Viva Laughlin?) Of course, my favorite parts of the show were whenever they showed Dev Patel, who always looked so happy, oh my gosh.

Okay, now I'm going to devote the rest of this entry to Gundam 00, so...yeah. Spoilers for 2.20 )

Geez, and after writing that essay, I have to go write that Ethics one.
satoshi_pallas: (ribbons: calculating)
This episode of Gundam 00 was kind of "well okay whatever" despite a few really good speed lines, so hooray anemic notes.

SPOILERS FOR 2.17 )

Good news?

DEV PATEL IS NOW SET TO PLAY ZUKO. Oh my God, am I happy that Roxy couldn't do it. AND TO BE REPLACED BY DEV PATEL YAY. I'm in agreement with the general sentiment that he would have made an amazing Sokka, but hopefully he'll be a really good Zuko too. Darn, I think I'll have to actually see the Avatar movie now? Although I still haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire; what the hell, me. I just love Dev Patel so much, omg.

OKAY SO NOW YOUR USUAL WRITE-UP OF GUNDAM 00.

2.17 spoilers, and the continuation of last week! )

I'm now off to write a poem.
satoshi_pallas: (Default)
So this weekend was kind of awful for me! It was just a bunch of writing essays and doing readings. And I'm not even done with everything by a long shot. Well, this week will be hell! Yay.

But I still managed to watch Gundam 00, even though I wasn't planning to. But it actually turned out to be a really nice episode! That had nothing to do with the plot, really. And we only have nine more episodes. I am not worried at all.

I didn't feel like typing out my thoughts as I watched because that usually takes me an hour and a half, so I just wrote them on a sheet of paper as I went along. And that turned out to be a lot of fun because I love my handwriting. So now I'll type them up!

SPOILERS FOR G00 2.16...and warning for a huge epic yaoi fantasy )

I am now going to mentally prepare for everything else I need to finish this week.
satoshi_pallas: (tieria: attitude)
auuugh writing poetry is so haaaard. I give up on this poem. I give up on it. I have no idea by this point what's supposed to be poetry and what isn't. THEY WILL HAVE TO DEAL.

Now I'm taking a break by watching Gundam~!

Gundam 00 2.15 spoilers )

Now back to staring at that document.
satoshi_pallas: (very good point)
I could have watched this episode hours earlier, but I had Things To Do. Actually, I was listening to a recording of The Killers' recent concert at Berlin, and like I was going to stop doing that. I know it sounds unbelievable, but most of the time I do put off watching Gundam 00 in favor of other things.

Spoilers for 2.14 )

I am now off to do More Things.
satoshi_pallas: (live fast and die young)
A-All of the last posts have been Gundam-related...
Oh well.

Spoilers for Gundam 00 2.12 )

This show, man. ♥
satoshi_pallas: (wai wai assassin-tan)
Just now I had the terrifying yet brilliant idea to marathon all of Gundam Wing over the rest of break. On June 30, 2006, I decided I would completely rewatch the series. Two and a half years later, I am on...episode 23. So I should really just go for it. I just really want to watch Endless Waltz, but I promised myself I'd see the rest first. But I also said I'd rewatch Princess Tutu, and I still have twelve episodes left to that, so.

My dad and I watched the dub of Gundam 00 episodes 7 and 8 today! And I remembered why those were the episodes that made me go back to the series, because there are seriously some "UHHH WHAAAT" moments. And Haro in the ocean.

I actually really like the dub! There are some problems with it. I'm not really that fond of Richard Ian Cox's Allelujah; he sounds too gruff/mean to me. I'm used to Hiroyuki Yoshino's adorableness, not Inuyasha. Other than that, it's pretty listenable. I really like Scott McNeil's Ali and Paul Dobson's Graham! (Which is super low for Graham, but it works somehow.) And of course I love Samuel Vincent as Tieria, and Brad Swaile as Setsuna is amazing. Lockon's is also pretty good, even though sometimes he kind of slides his words together. And he doesn't have an Irish accent. Sadface. (Also, I have a new goal: I'm going to get all four of the dub!Meisters' autographs. I have two right now. I can do this.)

Last week I had an optometry appointment! It turns out that I am even more nearsighted now than before. (It's not really that bad, though.) So now I get new glasses! Even though these glasses are near and dear to my heart since they're dark pink-colored and that's awesome for reasons I'm not going into, it's time for a change. So now I can get ones that look like Tieria's ones that fit my image more, yay!

I have nothing else to say. Break is break.
satoshi_pallas: (torchwood)
I GUESS that I should write an entry catching everyone up on what I've been doing for the last couple of days. I'm home, I've been doing stuff, etc. Also, I am still a magnet for bad luck, since the second I came home, our car started showing signs of breaking down, and then the very next day it did break down. And it costs a lot to repair, etc., etc. The timing was just too suspicious.

BUT ANYWAY, ANYWAY, THE PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS...PREDICTABLE.

SPOILERS FOR GUNDAM 00 2.11 )

OKAY YAY, I'M GLAD I MANAGED TO WATCH IT TODAY.
satoshi_pallas: (live fast and die young)
I stayed up until one last night studying for Spanish. And I just studied an hour now. Augh, I just want it to be this time tomorrow so I can relax for two more days...

ANYWAY, IT'S GUNDAM TIME.

2.10 spoilers, of course )

Baaaack to studying.
satoshi_pallas: (live fast and die young)
SCENE IS THIS MORNING.
JILLIAN: *goes on some site* ...Oh no! I forgot Gundam 00 was this morning! I can't read this right now, or I'll spoil myself!
JILLIAN:
JILLIAN: TIERIA SHOWER SCENE.

And now I'm finally going to watch it.

OM NOM NOM, 2.09 )

Oh, of course the shower scene is next week. Of course.
satoshi_pallas: (wai wai assassin-tan)
Did you know I had a Gundam tag? I did not know this. I was thinking about it this morning, how nice it'd be to have one, and I was all, "If I did have one, I know exactly what I'd call it!" Then I stopped, checked my tag list, and was like, "...Oh."

So I just watched last week's episode of Gossip Girl, and it was amazing. I love that show so much. I still have to watch the last half of last season, hahaha. Anyway, Bart Bass? Is incredible. I wish there was an episode next week...

BUT FORGET ALL THAT, BECAUSE NOW IT'S TIME FOR WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR APPROXIMATELY 179.5 HOURS.

Gundam 00 S2 Episode 8-- TIERIA!! )

THAT EPISODE SERIOUSLY DID GIVE ME A HEADACHE. But it was worth it. Oh, was that episode worth it.
satoshi_pallas: (uh no)
So, um, I am currently dying of a cold. And it is 87 degrees out. In November. And I have been on auto-pilot for all of today.

Let's see if I can write any intelligent comments about Gundam 00, then!

Episode 7 )

Now to go into a coma until anime club.
satoshi_pallas: (it's good news!)
Chick!Tieria is the hottest thing that I have ever seen in my entire life.

Seriously ilu Gundam 00 what did I ever do to deserve this.

ALSO I TOTALLY SPOILED MYSELF FOR TONIGHT'S EPISODE oh well SO WORTH IT

ahhhhh he looks so good as a girl ahhhhhhhhh

WHY CAN'T IT BE NEXT WEEK OH MY GOSSSSSHHHHH

tieriaaaaaaa

I approve so much A++

(ALSO I GUESS THIS ENTIRE ENTRY IS A SPOILER BUT IT'S AWESOME SO WHO CARES?)
satoshi_pallas: (wai wai assassin-tan)
Yesterday my Cognitive Science section was canceled! I figured it would be since we just had the midterm the day before, but I didn't get an email or anything, so I went to the classroom anyway. When I got there, there was a sign on the outside which confirmed my suspicions. As I thought about stepping a bit closer to make sure, some kid came out of the classroom right next to me, and the door smashed into my arm. He looked quite taken aback by this, so I had to apologize.

I figured that we were going to a buffet again for Thanksgiving this year, but my dad informed me that now he's considering going to a barbecue place instead. I am completely fine with this, since 1) I still won't have to eat turkey, and 2) I can still get dessert. And it's barbecue! So I'm looking forward to it. We still have to confirm this with the rest of our party, though, so I might be setting myself up to get Sea World'd. We'll just have to wait and see.

So I really can't think about anything else but going home, which is super lame. There's still twelve days left. And I still have 20 classes, two quizzes, and one essay. Oh well, as long as I get through next week, the three days after that will be no problem.

I really should get to work on my Spanish essay now, although the rough draft's not due until Friday, and the final's not due until the Wednesday after. Still, it's best to get these things out of the way. The only problem is that I really, really have no idea what I'm going to write about... Guess I'll just tough it out.

Yesterday I realized that we haven't seen Lyle smoking since the episode he was introduced. And he's not even in space anymore, so I don't see why he shouldn't not be smoking. Maybe he kicked the habit off-screen in an amazing short time? Maybe in the next three hundred years, they'll have invented nicotine-free cigarettes? Or maybe he's rocking the cigarette patches? Or maybe, just maybe, the writers forgot about it? Hmm.

I HAVE BEEN READING THINGS IN SPANISH FOR THE PAST TWO HOURS.

NOW TO READ IN ENGLISH. WITH JAPANESE IN THE BACKGROUND.

G00 Episode 6-- Spoilers, etc. )
satoshi_pallas: (ah a fresh breath of air)
Today I decided to take a Personal Day and not do a single bit of schoolwork. (I don't have anything pressing anyway.) B-But it's been tough... More than once I had to stop my hand from reaching into my backpack. Who knows what'll happen before the end of the day.

I caught up on One Piece yesterday!! Then I started immediately on Eyeshield 21. I'm currently only 105 chapters behind. I forgot how much I loved it! Seriously, I was about halfway down the second page of like chapter 130, and all of a sudden this wave of emotion swelled around my heart...! Ahhh, I really have to go out and buy all the volumes I'm missing now. Just so good...! (Also, Jumonji scored a goal omg...! I was so happy for him~~)

It sure gets dark early, huh? And there aren't any lights on in my room either since my roommate's asleep. She's fine with the lights on, but I like them better off, so! I guess that seems kinda creepy, but I just like dark rooms.

So only two and a half weeks before I go home and read Fake to my heart's content! My aunt and cousin are going to eat Thanksgiving dinner with us; so happy!! A meal with six people~~ And then comes Black Friday. Last year all I felt like buying was Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (which is seriously like one of the best movies ever), and I don't think that this year will be that different? Well, I'm only looking for one thing: a portable DVD player for cheap. This is because something malfunctioned with my laptop so it won't play them anymore, and I haven't gotten around to asking Gateway about it yet...

Meanwhile! Gundam 00 spoilers are amazing. Especially the super sketchy Billy stuff (psychopaths in my mecha anime?!). And the stuff with Tieria. Like the possible crossdressing plot coming up that seems more natural than it should. Of course, the part that really irritated me was when it came out that Graham wears that Mister Bushido outfit because he thinks it's cool. Graham, Graham, Graham. (On the same note, I love how everyone online keeps referring to Graham as dead. Just like the show. Heh.) Maybe I'll go watch the first season of Gundam 00 now?

IMPORTANT QUESTION: If you were to give me a new username, what would it be?
satoshi_pallas: (whatever)
SO TODAY WHEN I WAS EATING DINNER, I BIT MY CHEEK SO HARD THAT IT STARTED BLEEDING. AND APPARENTLY IT BLED INTERNALLY TOO BECAUSE IT'S VISIBLE ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE. This is completely irrelevant to the rest of the entry; I just had to vent. It's all swollen now too... Man, today's kinda sucked for me.

ANYWAY, I AM WATCHING GUNDAM 00 FINALLY, EVEN THOUGH I COULDN'T FIND A STREAMING VERSION OF GOOD SUBS. Suddenly I see the wisdom of taking seven weeks out like I did last year; when I came back to it, all I did was watch Shinsen's subs. But right now I'm being left with only one option...

Augh my mouth hurts. Anyway, Episode 30 spoilers, natch. )

THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED TODAY. I LOVE YOU GUNDAM 00.
