Mushrooms are now downloading, please wait warmly~
(No, not really, I still need to go to school. Awww, I was hoping to be the first person to finish a post but I guess not. Also, it’s not even out :v)
[Alternative Title: Damn you houraiguy and your inability to cover for me while writing posts, arghblargh]
I’m not going to reveal any plot.
Because this is airing next season, and like Fractale, the manga probably pails in comparison (they be stealin my pail).
Short post today»
The thesaurus is a wonderful thing.
100 MB left of space on my hard drive (no externals); I wonder how long I’ll last ;_;
ENDNOTE: How long has it been since I used the filler tag? Gosh…
Picture from site.
Play the audio for the full experience.
And, just a warning, don’t read this at night.
Seriously, that is all.
EDIT: Actually, no it isn’t.
Today (not in GMT, in PST) happens to be a Palindrome Date, when written as 11/02/2011. This only happens once a year (gosh, that’s so hard to believe!), and only in some years, specifically years in the first and second century of each millennium. Of course, this could technically happen twice a year, and it will, with 11/02/2011 (November 2nd, instead of February 11th), but that’s in another time-format, so…
Also, today is the day of the British Columbia Liberal Party’s vote to select their new leader. Except WHO CARES THEY’RE GONNA DO NOTHING ANYWAYS
Finally, to-month is exactly one year after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, hosted in Vancouver, Canada (not Washington)! Woohoo.
Just a quick (on-time!) post, today.
THEY’RE LIKE SINGLE PROJECTS BUT WITH A GROUP
AND GROUP PROJECTS ARE LIKE
I have a project due on Tuesday that I haven’t started.
It was assigned before Winter Break.
=3= wish me luck?

Y’know, right now, I have enough time to finish an Occult Academy Specials post, but my mom’s behind me (and has been for the last I-don’t-even just to annoy me), so watching lolis running around isn’t my best choice of action, not to mention they’re so fucking loud (at least from my point of view) that I can’t listen to it well enough without earplugs. I need earplugs. Or, I should stop being so silent so that everything seems so loud.
Here’s a rather old article that I’m reading to pass the time while she intently stares at my monitor. It’s actually quite interesting!
New posts coming soon, and I’ll publish both OASP3 and Winter Anime Preview (a bit late now :P) as soon as my mother goes away…
“End of Imperishable Night -Crescent Moon-”
Too lazy for image, and too lazy for words.
My weeaboo (like, seriously, weeaboo, derogatorily) friend recognized a song playing over the PA during the announcements – it was a Vocaloid tune.
I didn’t even recognize it
(Obviously, he doesn’t know I know about weird Japanese weirdnesses, because I refuse to divulge such details to people who say: “Do you watch anime?” Me: “…No.” Friend: “Aw, that means you don’t know what Vocaloid is. Dee equals. Meku Hat-sun is totally for the win ro-full-copter.”)
Post scriptum: Wait, what? Having a ‘copter that rolls on the floor laughing is so contradict-oh, I get it.
“You want to be a 500-year-old little girl who can fly and shoot rainbow bullets?”
Something the length of a Youtube movie (1:38) still counts as a separate series in MAL, so, I guess…
This clearly shows how busy I am to be making these kinds of posts where there really is just one interesting picture. The rest are filler.
Overall Rating: 4/10 (Good)
I guess ya gotta… CATCH ‘EM ALL
No, patchy isn’t stocking
But of course, this’d be just a filler post if I left it at that.
Anywho, what do you guys think about Halloween? If I were to write out my thoughts, it’d be too long and boring for anyone to read, so as far as I see it, there are about five distinct ‘layers’ of thinking about Halloween:
The first layer of people who think Halloween’s just fun;
The second layer of (cynical) people, who think Halloween’s completely pointless and strayed off its original purpose in the past;
The third layer of people, who think Halloween /should/ have changed in the future because of different cultural changes and shifting concerns;
The fourth layer of people who will argue that culture in itself is pointless;
And finally, the fifth layer of people who think that culture (and in extension, cultural events) create many economical, political, and social benefits.
Here, you’ll notice that the layers alternate between pro-Halloween and anti-Halloween; but they’re actually pro-Halloween, anti-pro-Halloween, anti-anti-pro-Halloween, etc. anti-anti-pro-Halloween doesn’t mean pro-Halloween; their ideologies are completely different. Thus, one layer of people will probably argue with all the other layers of people.
I definitely belong to the third layer of people; culture definitely isn’t pointless, and shouldn’t be kept just for benefits. Traditions typically aren’t beneficial, especially old, useless ones (take off your hat when you’re in a building!), but they add more of a historical texture to the current setting, so that we won’t forget what happened before. That seems contradictory; I’m saying that Halloween should change, but that we shouldn’t forget the original purpose of it?
Well, read that sentence again.
Finally, I typically don’t celebrate Halloween very much, so I’m opposed to thinking Halloween’s there just for fun; many other cultures have dropped it, even though it’d be logical to keep it for all the free candy.
So, tell me your thoughts? There’s not gonna be a post in this blog for a long while now…
Yeah, all that overdramaticness probably wasn’t necessary, cause now the computer’s been upgraded to a WINDOORS SEVEN and is probably 10 times faster.
Unfortunately, my family found out I had 20 GB of animu on my drive, though I’m still not sure whether they thought those were just games…
So, yeah, I’m back. It’ll take me a while to get used to this, so I’ll be extremely disactive in a bunch of places, but regular posting’ll continue.
Note where this is categorized.
THIS POST IS BECAUSE IM TAKING A BREAK FROM INTERNET MEME 101, BECAUSE IF I OVER DO IT PEOPLE WILL GET BORED
Oh hai it’s a filler.(no it’s a filler because Internet Meme 101 is taking a break and stuff) Anyways, it got kinda annoying, as I realized how so many simple-minded ************ think that people who have intelligence=nerd. Ok seriously wtf? THIS IS MADNESS, THIS IS SPARTA.
What people think nerds are
WHAT THEY REALLY ARE
Honestly why do people assume that? Nerd actually means that you are socially withdrawn, are awkward talking to other people, physically unfit, and who enjoys learning like playing a video game. Seriously, I am not any of those definitions. Just because I have more brainpower than you really does not mean that I am a nerd. After researching, 99% of people that call you a nerd are just jealous that you have the ability to think, while they’re total douchebags. So the next time someone calls you a nerd, take pride in it.
The final installment of an organizational voyage (last one being more than three months ago) is here.
This is also O-NEW’s 300th post.
DERP DERP DERP :V
…Yeah. I’ve deleted all stupid tags (dammit hourai), fused and deleted several categories, sorted unorganized posts, changed the sidebar, etc…
(Drawings, Developing, Links, and Organization have been deleted, so all that’s left has at least 10 posts in it :V)
Just thought I’d put that out. :V I WONDER WHY I DID THAT
Xmarks, without a viable marketing strategy, is forced to stop its service in 90 days. ;~; At least I still have chrome…
^ THE WAR TO END ALL WARS HAS ENDED
^ Interesting article about facebook and social networking in general. What we don’t want is one network to control everything – we need a ‘federation’, a bundle of different networks all linked together. That way, I can actually check comments on every blog I comment instead of just the wordpress ones…
^ pls to be have Touhou animu soon? ;~;
^ I need to play more UFO :<
^ Someone make this game. Now.
I can’t update fast enough!
^ Touhou gets an anime project.
…Sadly, it’s not official. But if this is done right…
…On the other note, if it’s done wrong I think 2chan’ll cave in on itself. Oh, and everyone in the studio involved will die through mysterious car accidents. OH WELL WHO CARES
^ Humans use: ‘AWESOMENESS!’ Environment faints!
Wait, that’s not a good thing.
^ Pokemon live-action movie.
Old news now, but… yeah. Y’know how those doujin groups make so much Touhou trailers/PVs/even one episode of a potential animu (that was cut because… I forgot, really). This is another one, but it’s to do with Pokémon, and it’s not made by some doujin group. Now, if a big studio were to create an actual pokemon live-action movie with this kind of style (kinda like how they’re making a Touhou Anime now)…
LIFE, IT DOESN’T EXIST IN.
No, not that kind of sick.
And not that kind of sick either.
I’m sick enough to feel horrible but not sick enough to go to school – the worst type of sick.
Thus, I leave you with some late links posts just ’cause it’s fast and easy.
^ HEY GUIZ STOP PLAYING VIDEO GAMES THEY MAKE YA MURDERERS AND AND AND DELINQUENTS AND AND STUFF AND AND THEY’RE LIKE KILLING SOCIETY AND AND WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE CAUSE OF THEM KKKK?!?!?!??!111
^ Though I suppose posting only several at a time helps decrease the amount :V
^ ZUN should really name UNL something already :V
…YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I should probably play it sometime soon.
But why not… THIS WEEKEND?
Because IT’S FREE!
Slogan: “Minecraft, that game that I’d totally buy if I had any monetary possessions capable of transmission across the internet, but I don’t, so all I can do is make up this shitty post about how you can get it for free for this weekend though the real reason I’m making this post is because I don’t have time to make another more meaningful post.”
Unfortunately, this ain’t an O-NEG; it’s a links post, so here we go…
^ And the first image is of Minecraft! That’s what ya do in it. This guy probably spent 2 years making that. What? Minecraft hasn’t been out for 2 years? OH WELL
^ OK seriously this guy has no life (or I have no life and I could be making this, but instead wasting my time on stupid forums :V)
Same .MIDI program that the Mimamemlomdy guy used. Sol eater… someone who eats suns… Well, not the Death Star that’s for sure.
Maybe I’m the only person who finds those yellow bars at the top really grating, because they’re just the same thing, over and over again, held for so long; and just those two notes!
The rest sound alright, I guess. But ZUN-style is really too repetitive, IMO. I can’t tell much of a melody out of this jumble of notes; I think it only starts at around 2:30. Maybe if ya listen to it more, it’ll become more memorable or something. I’m not sure…
^ NEED. MORE. PRISMRIVERS.
Oh, did I tell ya guys? I have a viola now. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Next instrument I’m gonna learn is definitely trumpet, for quite obvious reasons. As to why I didn’t choose a violin, I think I’ll start with some backstory.
I signed up for a strings program in school; just about everyone wanted to learn violin (because they didn’t know what the other instruments were :V). The teacher then guaranteed that anyone not learning violin would get a B, because they have so few of them that you’ll /always/ be selected to be part of the final orchestra ensemble (which accounts for some marks).
Thusly more marks is always better; and besides, violins kill my ears.
As to this particular arrange, the beat’s amazing – that’s probably why I’m posting it here. Starting a composition with swing notes gets instant bonuses from me.
Sounds like a really vibrant 1930-esque arrange; 1930 songs are /always/ awesome.
^ Yet another epic arrange. I should seriously elevate my standards so that I don’t spam so much :<
Actually, I didn’t realize this was Touhou, like at all.
:V Not much more to say here, I guess…
…Er, yeah. After condensing all of those posts, I guess everyone got offended and are now on strike :V
Thusly, I present… LINKS! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
YA DON’T KNOW HOW LONG I’VE KEPT THESE
Anyways, I have enough to publish this TWICE without it getting REPETITIVE, but since this is a little bit bare I’m gonna add more commentary than I usually do. So here it is~
^ Magnus Carlsen, 20-year old chess prodigy and the top rated chess player in the WORLD… beat the world. AND I MISSED IT WHAT THE :V
Basically speaking, this guy played a vote-chess game against the world. This means that he plays as himself, and the world votes on which move they should play. Along with the world are three grandmasters whose names escape me; anyways, they’re really good players.
Unfortunately, this has a major flaw – ya don’t get smarter with more people. Even if ya have a flock of a million sheep, they won’t really try to escape, even if their pen is really badly built.
Instead, what we get is an average; that means, Magnus Carlsen, a 2800+ rated player, is essentially playing against a 1200, because that’s the average. Obviously it’s a little bit higher due to the three grandmasters leading the way and the simple fact that low-ranked chess players don’t really care about this.
Nevertheless, what I’m trying to say is that this is not a fair fight. If there are a majority of stupid people who will sacrifice a queen for a pawn, that majority will win the vote and the world will lose.
Thank god 4chan didn’t take part in this or else Magnus would’ve won before the first move due to forfeit :P
^ NEW STATS GRAPH FOR WORDPRESS
Funny, there wasn’t an official announcement for it. Anyways, as I was checking the stats counter today, I noticed the change and searched it up.
Not much else seems to have changed, though a way to allow ya to select which style of graph ya want could be useful… (and wouldn’t take that long)
^ C’mon, if there was a picture of Mima there isn’t a picture of Yuyuko? :V
Unfortunately, those were my only actual links for today. I was sure something else happened…
Here, they used a simple midi playing program and added various improvisations to it, so that pictures could be seen. End result: CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!
Interesting, but what would be even more interesting if the pictures actually sounded like something. For some, they sounded pretty nice (like the ZUN one), but for others they were just random mishmashing of notes.
When ya mix art and music, interesting stuff can happen, I guess.
^ Surprised noone’s made a lullaby of deserted hell x Scarborough fair yet :V
The similarities are just so obvious. Sorta like Septette for the Dead Princess x Pathétique Sonata (third movement); I’m really surprised nobody’s made any combination of sorts yet.
Of course, I don’t look through every arrange on the net so I’m not sure; if ya find a link of one of them, give them to me and I’ll go cry in a corner because I won’t be the first person to arrange one of those.
Then again my arranges take six months to finish (a one page long arrange with like 30 notes in total orz).
^ srs suika faic is srs
The last one of today. Have ya noticed that this post is four hours late? I hope not ._.
It’s yet another one of those brilliant orchestral arranges with like 100 violins or something.
Apparently the face behind Suika is UNZAN but he wasn’t created then so there goes my theory that Suika got her powers from him :(
For some reason, after the vocals kick in, it seems a lot like one of those anime OPs. Then, it hit me that anime OPs are just regular songs with fancy images added in.
^Interesting video about the controversy around video games.
^Random video on platypuses by national geographic.
^Animation about Climate Change.
First day of school but that doesn’t have ta do with anything. Anyways, Videos and Images (cause Links are like, so yesterday :V)
^ Notice: no Byakuren :V
^ DAMMIT STAGE TWO FLYING PIECES OF PAPER DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
^ Hey, top video was Daiyousei as midboss too. CONSPIRACY I SAY
^ from Calamitous Intents. TBH though I haven’t really seen any mecha anime so… OH WELL THOSE RULES APPLY TA ALL ANIME ANYWAYS :V
Unfortunately, now I’m getting seriously out of stuff ta add ta posts.
This reminds me – after CIRNO DAY YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH 2009 (ONE DAY after SCHOOL STARTS, which is actually TA REAL DAY SCHOOL STARTS because on DAY ONE we go ta school at NINE THIRTY instead of EIGHT THIRTY… I think. Not sure though. :/ So basically, that means that after school starts I’ll probably have less time ta post, so I’ll post only once a day instead of twice. After all, in Summer I get 3.5 times more time (pun unintended, not that it was funny anyways. Which reminds me, I can probably add one link ta this, which has ta do with ta topic at hand, being bad puns:
^ houraiguy (known for his… let’s just say… interesting rants? Anyways, houraiguy wrote this on his blog.
By now, ya might notice I haven’t closed three parentheses. But most of ya probably haven’t) well, anyways, that pun was unintended :/) than when school starts, and if right now I’m still so disorganized… god knows what’s gonna happen during school. I’m not like some bloggers who manage ta actually post /more/ during school) stuff will happen.
Re-read that again and see if ya can understand what just happened.
(little bit Inception-esque, if I may say so myself. But that’d be an insult ta Inception so… I won’t)
(by the by, this is actually a links topic cause it has TWO LINKS ta things that DON’T EVEN HAVE TA DO WITH THIS POST)
Alright, if by now I’m not home that means… I’m not home. :V
No internet means I’m cut off from ta world. HOW WILL I KNOW WHETHER OR NOT RANDOM STRANGERS ON TWITTER HAVE JUST WOKEN UP OR NOT?! I MUST COMMIT SUICIDE NOW
On that note, I’m running out of videos ta share. After all, I’m writing all of these posts in like, a quarter of an hour. Oh well :V
If someone else has posted besides me, remember: edit ya tags cause they’re important.
No, scratch that, they’re not important :/
^ Ya just need ta make something travel faster than ta speed of light! I told ya that, like, thirty years ago, and ya still not done?!
^ Grand Theft Necrauto: Now with 100% more bad puns.
^ SUBMARINES ARE PIRATES
ALL OF THEM
[size=infinityandbeyond]AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL[/size] of them.
^ Here’s ta video; 8-bit mix tape of… stuff ya’d find on a 8-bit mix tape. YEAH.
