More unimportant stuff.

First, another new theme~ Imported from LJ, but I happened to like it :P The sidebar looks funky (anything wp-included) but at the moment I am too lazy to fix it. Because why fix what ain’t broke, even if it looks funny.

Another new page, as I decided to finally post my Winamp skins up somewhere besides LJ. So there’s two of them over there if you want to click that link over there (1 Matsumoto Jun, 1 Yamashita Tomohisa). A third is on the way once I stop procrastinating and finish the AVS & MB >> EDIT 08/17/06: Kirihara skin now included! In general skins will be posted to LWM first, so if you want to see the newest ones try checking there first :)

K’s 19th birthday was yesterday so he & dad came up. Which means more BBQing (since mum and I finally figured out how to get the grill going and keep it going… only took us 20 years >>). With COW RIBS. And they were tasty. Followed by strawberry shortcake, which was fantastico. And some of the giant ass batch of potato salad mum made me make yesterday hur. Dad left before I woke up but K was still here messing around on his new car he has parked here (’63 Nova). A little conversing and ways were parted.

The Higa Rival Players singles come out the 19th and sadly I have no monies for them yet D: *grabbypaws at* But I’m guessing that’s okay since my most recent buyingstuff spree included some of the older Rival Players cds I don’t have (Shinji, Saeki, Renji, Jackal&Marui + Yukimura). I can live without Higa cds in my paws for a month >.>; And super randomly I still ♥ Sanada’s Shou album 8D

On to other things coming out :O Radiata Stories manga on the 26th *_* Alright, I haven’t spammed this place with it yet but I’ve been playing the game lately and a;lkfjafk I frickin’ love it. Square-Enix once again has not let me down. The characters are so sarcastic and the art, while sort of cutesy and such is nice. And it’s fun to play. I think the only thing I don’t like about it is that if you (Jack) die, it’s a game over no matter what – even if all the rest of your party members are still perfectly fine. But other than that it’s A+

And also randomly because I feel the need to mention SuJu, here. Quite aware it’s old but that doesn’t make it any less amusing, and happy thoughts are good things to have; particularly with what all’s been going on lately. So it is with much love that I wish HeeChul a speedy recovery and offer my condolences to DongHae over his father’s death. Not that it really matters what a silly American fangirl thinks, but these guys are totally deserving of a break, man. So much bad luck lately D:

But yeah, not much going on as usual. Rping, messing around in Photoshop and dicking around with the JE TCG Jackie convinced me to join. < begin pimp > Countdown is the place to be, yo. Tell em Nori sent you and get me free cookies 8D < /end pimp >

*fleeees*

The chapter of life stuff, mail, site stuff, and I hate fandom.

So, mum got a new job! Yay for once again having some sort of income in the house other than my few and far between workdays, though starting next week I think I have at least a week of work. Mum starts today at the assisted living center for the elderly down the street (which amuses me, her old job at the vet clinic was a 3 minute drive away, ~20 minute walk for me. New one I can walk there in about 8 minutes XD Like, you have to drive past it to get to my house hur. But yeah anyway, it seems like something she’ll enjoy with hours that she actually likes (2 pm to 10 pm – 8 hour shift of watching elderly people and getting hugs and coworkers she likes so far rather than a 10 hour shift of lugging bitchy/sick/injured animals around plus being on call with coworkers who made it all hell). Doesn’t pay much but me & mum are alike, if we enjoy our job we don’t care if we don’t get paid an exhorbarant amount. It’s enough to pay bills and have a little fun, good enough for us.

Another nice thing is that they’re looking for a volunteer for like some arts & crafts sort of thing down there so I might check it out. Something’s gotta be better than sitting on my ass in front of my computer 90% of the time (I admittedly have little to no social life outside the webbernets 8D)

Moving on! Mail the other day included my copies of Arashi’s Arashic, Kame & Pi’s (okay Shuji to Akira who cares) Seishun Amigo and DBSG’s Japanese single Begin.

I liked most of the tracks on Arashic, though the ones that seem to be on repeat the most are I Want Somebody and きっと大丈夫. They’re just er funky? The whole cd itself is like the perfect blend of lounge music, fun music and gay.

…Okay so Seishun Amigo I already liked the songs on and only really bought it so I could own the gay. However, despite liking songs, Kame’s always makes me want to cockblock him for sounding like such a goddamn emo bitch. 8D

High Time makes Begin worth having. It’s fun and bouncy while Begin is a little too ballady-slow for me — but it’s not a bad song.

Moving on again, False Advertising got a shiny new Pi layout (is it obvious it was originally going to go here?). And with that, the Tanaka Twins, Momo/Kaidou, and Dan Taichi fanlisitings are up for adoption. Check it out, yeah?

And finally, the bitching. I realized the other day why I generally stay on the outside of band fandoms. Because fans of a certain group can be even more cruel and vicious than anyone in an anime/tv show fandom could ever be.
