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.Collapse )

[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
* V - Peace

General Anime Recs

This is for anyone who is interested in trying out some anime titles :)

Top Two Favorites
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Action | Family | Adventure | Humor | Drama - go from anime to manga so you can enjoy both :) [ uploaded it here  - just join the comm! ]

  • Kare Kano (His and Her Circumstances): School | Slice of Life | Romance | Humor - one of the best school!animes around, good character development, super funny and favorite romantic couple EVER! [ uploaded it here ]
Other Favorites (listed alphabetically)
  • Beck: Music | Slice of Life - a complete surprise!favorite and one of my most rewatched shows. The development of a band and so much more :)

  • Oofuri (Big Windup): Sports | Slashy - sports with lots of sortof!slash moments :) The main character is not your typical protagonist (a bit of a scaredycat haha) but somehow that became a positive rather than a negative for me as I watched it ^^

  • Gakuen Alice: - Humor | Cracky | School - light and fun, the main character is a foil for the other characters who are AWESOME and hillarious

  • Mushi-shi: Supernatural | Life - the art turned me off initially but it's brilliant - the stories form a tapestry of life *_*

  • Natsume Yuujinchou: Supernatural | Slice of Life - you can watch this with slash goggles :) [ uploaded it here ]

  • Nodame Cantabile & Nodame Cantabille - Paris :  Music | Humor | Cracky | Romance | Slice of Life - my second favorite romantic couple! It also made me develop a new apreciation for classical music. The japanese drama version is also worth watching for the incredible crackiness :)
This is 'cause I just updated my completed anime list and thought it might be good to have this around as a pointer. There's something for everyone out there and it just depends on what genre and style of anime clicks for you.

You can download from anime_downloads or galanime or watch them streaming from various sites (just google them)
