Mr. Mousie's comment on seeing my current LJ background: 'Why do you have a picture of two Japanese people having sex?' ROFL. To my response of 'They are not Japanese and he is just kissing her good night' he responded 'Ah, so he is at the thank you stage.' Heeee.

If the below (nonspoilery) The Outsiders vid (with the music the awesome theme song for TO) doesn't make you watch it, I despair of you.



Some meta on ep 13 and Ah Hao and Yu Yen )

Here are a very few shots from the beginning of the ep.

Ep 13 shots )

You may ask, why so much The Outsiders? Well, it's the only drama I am watching. Usually I watch at least two, but I cannot hold interest in anything but TO now. It's insane. I don't even ff one bit and don't mind watching on the computer. Craaaaazy :)

I am however also reading volume 1 of W Juliet and Kitchen Princess which are both cute if not memorable. And Mr. Mousie and I are slowly but surely continuig with the Otogi Zoshi anime. We are in modern day and it's fun.

1. Got my photo taken for passport renewal and the proprietor was watching Kal Ho Na Ho. We ended up having a long chat about Bollywood. Eeee! :)

2. I think it finally sank in that in a few months, I’ll be seeing Oguri Shun romance Horihita Maki. And there will be sleepovers, and him carrying her and eeee. Serious GLEE here. When is it supposed to air? The guy was born to play Sano :)

3. I’ve been watching Mars vids. How an artist, who is a rape victim who does not talk to anyone and cannot bear to be touched by men and an outwardly devil-may care racer who was formerly in an insane asylum and is familiar with straight-jackets, and who has out of control violence problems, can ever make a good believable couple is inconcievable, but OMG. Somehow it slowly works and they become one of my favorite OTPs of all, an OTP where I really believe they could not exist without the other.

4. Been watching the amazing anime Otogi Zoshi set in the Heian era, and following Lady Hikaru who has to pretend to be her brother Raikou and recover the sacred Magatamas. It has an animation style I’ve never seen before. It’s as if they are tying to recreate the era paintings. The same is true for the pacing, and the story itself which is bleak but never hopeless. I love all the characters, but am especially taken by Mansairaku, an enigmatic imperial entertainer who crosses paths with Hikaru now and again, and to whom she becomes attracted.



5. Am now on Dunnett’s Queen’s Play. Brilliant. You know what struck me in GoK btw? The reconciliation/admission scene between Richard and Mariotta (which is breathlessly beautiful) is in many ways parallel to the one with Lymond and Philippa at the end of Checkmate, in both the acceptance of the woman, and surrender of control by the man, and childhood restoration. I guess the brothers do have things in common after all.

6. Apparently Bushi No Ichibun is out on DVD with subs. Me want.

7. I have found a plentiful source of Pockys in the neighborhood. Yay!

8. I think I am mobbed out what with Lovers and ADC. I think I will switch to something light and fluffy, most likely Taiwanese Hana Kimi for a bit.

I have started watching the Otogi Zoshi anime.

It's really hard to describe but it's a period heroic fantasy about Hikaru, a girl masquerading as her brother in Heian era Japan in order to collect certain artifactsto renew society.

There is fighting, OTPs and beautiful artwork.

One ep in, and I really like it.

Seeing that Pirates of Caribbean: At World's End trailer reminded me of how much I adore Will/Elizabeth.

They are such a huge ship of mine.

I am a complete sucker for the guys who are extremely capable and good at adventuring but have no interest in it. Will is really really good at doing derring-do, piratical things, but all he wants is to live with Elizabeth and have a normal life. And I am a super-sucker when they are paired with clever, strong-willed girls who are a lot more morally flexible about things. Will is a Boy Scout. Elizabeth is a real pirate at heart. And she loves him because he is like this. And he loves her because she is like this. And they are (as [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore put it) utterly single0mindedly obsessed about each other.

Mutual monomania is sexy.

I will be most annoyed if the third movie ends up Jack/Elizabeth. I get Jack's pull for Elizabeth, I do: he is a lot closer to her, character-wise, so free-wheeling, congenially amoral, like she is. Will defines straight arrow. But that is the thing. There is pull there for her, but that is all there is.

As [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer put it, Jack is someone you have a brief fling with, and Will is the one you marry.

And I always go for the straight-arrow guys. Cyclops over Wolverine, Will over Jack.

A bunch of Will/Elizabeth vids )

And this is not connected, but must rewatch Lord of the Rings trilogy (though I am an Aragorn, not Legolas girl).

And I am through episode 6 of Blood + and it's amazing. Amazing. It just might be the most beautifully animated thing I've seen. There is one scene where Haji and Saya are confronted by a 'mouse' and the way they move, the way he fights, clearing way for Saya to charge with her sword, utter fluid grace of her movements, and their shadows, her collapsed on the ground, and the light from the windows. It's to die for.

I love it. This is going on my Top 10.

Best Friend is now hooked on anime as we watched these together. Now she is going to watch Ceres and Full Metal Panic (I showed her some of both and she loved them). And she wants to check out Otogi Zoshi.
