... dude, I'm crazy, not deaf. You're only a room over. It doesn't take supersonic hearing to catch on to your conversation.

Actually, you know, your ignorance makes for some hilarious situations. It's not like you'd ever describe me as entitled to my face; you'd know I'd point out the irony.

lol. entitled. You bet, you fucking son of a bitch.

Leon's List of Accomplishments

  • GED score of 3420 (95%)

  • Microsoft certified

  • Amtrak veteran

  • Friends with a murderer



edit: Apparently being friends with a murderer is not really an accomplishment. After all, my father's already done it at Westboro! Kind of. Except he wasn't really a 'friend'. And he doesn't know if anyone was actually a murderer. But they were crazy, so, same thing, right?

So my computer exploded again.

... yeah.

I guess it decided being corrupt was fun or something. No idea.

Ordered a recovery disk, but it's possible it will take a week or more to arrive. (Why couldn't it just COME with a disk? God.)

So. Yep.

Off to unplug everything in the house now. Big thunderstorm and all that jazz.

more ova shit

Apparently an exec at ufotable made a comment about doing a Derris-Kharlan arc if Tethe'alla is successful enough.

I'm not sure whether to be excited or displeased. This means that the running time would be expanded, and therefore not as much stuff would be cut out (hopefully?) but...

... it also means the Tethe'alla arc ends in a cliffhanger. And we'll probably see another 3 years go by before the thing is completed, IF it is.


sigh
zelos - are you really this stupid?

ZELOS VS REGAL, ROUND 2. FAAAAAAAAAAAITO

So, just caught a 20 second PV to Tethe'alla arc's second episode...



I'm still very WTF on Regal being after Zelos. Wasn't he after Colette and the rest? Wasn't ridding of her the condition of his release? AM I ON DRUGS?

... not that I'm complaining. The OVA has really awesome fight scenes (aside from when they use the exsphere gimmick [blech]). And Zelos is pretty. Shiny hair, prissy dancing swordsmanship. Plus, this means the pope had it in for him early on, which gives him more reason to be emo. Heheheh, it's all good.

Nngh. I'm so not awake....

Updating with more OVA talk and memes later.

A review of Virginia Woolf's "Orlando" (Serious Tl;DR)

I did it. I finished the book.

... and I have no idea what I just read. Fuck.

...

Okay, let me correct that--I have some idea, but it has very little to do with the content of the book. I just understand the basis in which the book was written on. It's partly a satirical biography. Virginia Woolf writes as a typical male biographer in that age. She presents sexist arguments (as this biographer) and then completely demolishes them with her (admittedly groundbreaking) characters.

Honestly, her writing is downright hilarious sometimes. I complained a lot about the purple prose early on in the novel. Most of the time, she wrote in that style to highlight Orlando's thought processes. Orlando was a poet, and often conceived some really ridiculous metaphors. As Orlando grew older, this lessened.

Sadly, though, toward the end of the novel, the prose picked back up. As Woolf tried to highlight the changes and events, she sort of overstepped the description and made it purposely ambiguous. I'm struggling to really come to a conclusion here.

Collapse )

To my knowledge, the relevance in this book to myself is Orlando's transformation and related points thereafter.

Collapse )

The other thing is the purpose of the book. I mean. What, exactly, was gained in this excerpt of Orlando's life? I missed the symbolism in the final lines. (Something about a wild turkey?) I did understand that she finally came to some conclusion on life and love. These were questions that plagued her since her childhood. Upon the oak tree, waiting for her husband to return, I think it all sort of came together. Ecstasy. Not fame, not glory, not titles, not wealth. Ecstasy. Her happiness. And her happiness was in nature, literature and her husband.

As for what I personally took from this book... not a whole lot. It was an interesting read, but a bloated one.

True to life, Orlando repeated many experiences within the book to the point where it was really a bummer to read. She had to dine out with nobles a thousand times before she finally, irrevocably decided that lifestyle wasn't for her. (And thank god, because those were some boring scenes....)

Then, her musing. Whenever she experienced a misfortune (Sasha, Nick, you name it) she would brood. And while eventually her conclusion served as a conclusion for the book itself, the musing was so repetitious that I barely managed through it. It was just too much.

I think the most enjoyable scenes were the conclusions. When she decides to write for her own happiness; when she becomes secure in her identity; when she realizes what life and love are. The way these individual scenes wrapped themselves up were enjoyable. More enjoyable than the ending, in fact.

I might consider reading this again in the future. It'd have to be out of my own volition. I do feel like I had the book forced on me, which limited my enjoyment of it. In a couple years, I'll pick it up under happier circumstances and see what's changed. 'Til then, I believe this is the entirety of my review.

Why did I buy a Gateway?

Hey guys,

My laptop keyboard's gone crazy and the whole thing is being sent in for repair. Dad's letting me use his laptop, but I still probably won't be on too frequently.

If you want to reach me, feel free to call/text me. If you don't know my cell, you can just message my AIM name. It'll go to my phone.

When I'm on Dad's laptop, I'll be using Windows Live/MSN. My e-mail is inexplainably@hotmail.com. Add me and drop me a line. (Remember, if you're on Yahoo!, you can add it there, too.)

Have a good few weeks and I'll see you all later.
