Filters for communities

[001] Since I discovered the default friends view filter, I've been considering adding in more comms for watching and just splitting them up into secondary filters like when I made my icon comms filter.

So I created the "media" filter for music downloads and a few scanlations and stuff - I also made all three filters public: default | icons | media - so now anyone can view the filters :) The catch is that some friends and comms in the filters are f-locked, so unless you're a friend/member, you still won't see them :(

[002] Need to go through the posts on butterwing for downloads and also go through the affiliates post on ongoingmelody for undiscovered shiny sites. Oh and definitely need to catch up with reviews and recs on drugtrax ♥ ♥

[003] Am oddly excited about G.I.Joe - the Baroness is frickin' awesome. At the same time, I'm horrified by Street Fighter. Kristin Kreuk =/= Chun Li. WTFWTF. And when I think Vega, the image in my head is this or this. Argh, definitely not wasting money on the movie. G.I.Joe when compared, looks super decent. And hey I always liked Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor, so I can't wait to see him as Destro :)

I guess the big movies for me this year are: Star Trek, Watchmen, HP6, G.I.Joe and Wolverine. Transformers 2 isn't exciting me much.

[004] Oh yeah, completely forgot but a few nights ago I had a dream that featured the Gundam 00 pilots and at one point Tieria was undressing but before it could go ANYWHERE I woke up 'cause I was cold.

DAMNIT DAMNIT DAMNIT. Haven't had a good p0ny dream in ages. Though on the other hand I haven't had a very graphic nightmare lately either. Active imagination is not always a good thing - the most recent horrifying dream was being in a pool at night and getting killed by the girl from the Ring ;_; Wish there were a way to just get the pr0n filter activated in my head and skip the horror >_>

[005] Finally watched the whole of Wolf's Rain and I'm a bit confused about the ending. So did everyone die and then they fastforwarded in time to when all of them are living in a city (reincarnation/next life or something?) and Kiba is running for a Lunar flower?

It's kinda lame but I'll take that over the alternative, which is another "Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies" ending. Bloody hell, I wish these shows came with warnings so I'd know when to avoid them or when to stop watching. Death!endings suck.

[006] Fab FMA news: the new series will have Romi Paku and Rie Kugimiya back as Ed and Al!!! sharona1x2 pointed out the article. It starts on April 15th and I CANNOT WAIT, OMG
WOLF'S RAIN!!

Ok, so; everyone died. Even Kiba there at the end. They all died and it opened "paradise" but because of Darcia's eye was there to taint the reborn world, it wasn't the "true wolf's paradise." But I think that's part of the deeper meaning of Wolf's Rain. That we're always looking for that perfect paradise (I think that's why Kiba is still running there at the end, because he's still looking for Cheza and his true paradise) but it's impossible to find it because there will always be something there to taint the world, no matter how many times it's reborn. I think that's also why Tsume, Toboe and Hige were shown as reborn humans and seemingly happy; they were able to find their own small happiness in the reborn world, though Kiba is still searching.

At least that's what I've gotten out of it everytime I rewatch it.
Ooooooh, so paradise DOES open, in a way? I was thrown by the cat!love in the new world, so I was wondering how it was related - which is why they were able to find their own small happiness in the reborn world, though Kiba is still searching. makes so much sense.

I wish everyone didn't die (even if there was the reincarnation bit) - I loved the group and ;_; at all the deaths one after the other. Darcia wasn't THAT good a villain to off everyone, IMO. Though now I have visions of everyone in heaven and the wolves are part of the same wolf pack and ♥
this was the same meaning that i got from the series--that they were still searching for the TRUE paradise, but that they'd found some measure of happiness in the new, reborn world.

but man, it was so sad to see everyone die! i watched it while i was visiting home one summer, and my dad came up to my room to tell me dinner was ready and saw me crying hysterically and was like, "what's wrong?!"

heh.
slkjdffsd FMA! Is this going to be like a remake of the original anime series? Will it continue where it (or the movie) left off? Or (as I heard once in passing) will it be more accurate to the manga than it was the first time?
It's supposed to be more closely related to the manga this time around (which is why instead of reading the manga, I'm just going to wait for this second series and THEN read it - that way I enjoy EVERYTHING without ever being disappointed :3)
I CANNOT WAIT. I hope one of the sub groups picks it up. I can't imagine they wouldn't, for such a hugely popular fandom ..

Yay! More Ed & Al! I am so excited! xD
We'll probably have multiple subbers and be completely spoilt for choices XD

I know personally I'll download from the fastest ones but ultimately uploaded the best quality subs later on LJ after its aired completely :3
Yes! I'm glad I didn't find out in Nov/Dec or anything 'cause now I'm thinking "only 2 months, thank god!"
At the same time, I'm horrified by Street Fighter. Kristin Kreuk =/= Chun Li. WTFWTF

I COMPLETELY AGREE!

I'm totally looking forward to G.I.Joe though.
