anime - beck - koyuki - guitar

Random as always...

[001] The suckiest thing about having a 3 yr old laptop is realizing it doesn't meet the minimum requirements for games anymore - and by games I mean the Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta. Surely there are RPG games online in their free beta period that won't crash as soon as I open them ;_;

[002] I got the notice that Vox was closing but it didn't strike me until reading this entry that Typepad accounts usually always cost money and by switching to Typepad, we would basically be geting accounts for free :D

Since I already have permanent LJ and DW accounts that I use as fandom blogs, I figured I could use the Typepad account for something else entirely in future. So I switched to a different blog name when transferring the account from Vox \o/ However, when posting entries, my username is still goss so it's almost like a community than a same-name-journal/blog

Hopefully though these accounts will have most of the important bells and whistles that come along with the standard paid ones.

[003] Updated my public art filter with rss feeds from blogspot artists and basically doubled the size - there are still blog link rolls to browse through so might have more to add over the weekend XD Have also updated my DW layout for easier daily rlist reading since friends have made the permanent switch.

[004] Recently watched the Korean drama I Am Legend via Viiki on (up to episode 10!) and its a weird but oddly fun mix of a music band and legal cases. Am kinda glad Kim Seon-A didn't take up the role in the end since it would have given the show a very different vibe.

Other than that nothing really stood out yet from the new offerings of the season - am using the drama wikis to look up older titles (including movies) for stuff I've missed out on.

[005] Am craving Beck!fanart like hell - the only only I could find was this one by bluestraggler - WANT MOAAAAR D: I wish I knew how to search pixiv...

[006] Fic recs! Was over the moon this morning when I stumbled onto Toph!fic by [personal profile] recessional:((Am always in Toph!fic withdrawl since it usually feels like there isn't any D:))

Commission: Toph by Enduro

Noticed enduro aka fightfair's art over the summer, particularly 'cause of her gorgeous lineart and coloring with Paint Tool SAI as well as great character/costume design.

The concept was older Toph, grounded and in her element - not an action shot but just very relaxed and comfy - so almost a pinup style if you will, with her lying on earth/sand.

Enduro went a step further and included some earthbending into the composition that just feels so very Toph - it's almost like she's using her bending to get a view of something far into the distance.
