Huge-ass pic...

Woah look at the size of this pic. It's about 22MB 0_0;

If it's printed out, I bet it'd make a stunning poster.

I haven't been playing FFXIII for a while (or turned on the PS3 other than to watch movies). After getting to Gran Pulse, the place is beautiful and huge but the side quests got tedious. I know I can just skip it and move on with the story, and I want to but can't because I want to know what happens when they're all completed (and it helps to level up).

Now I'm stuck :P

Leaping through time~again...

Saw this a while back but I thought I'd share it anyway. They are making have made (or remade, I don't know anymore ~_~") a live action version of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time).

I didn't see the original but loved the anime version (which you should really see if you haven't, even if you don't normally watch anime. That 7.9 rating at imdb is no fluke I assure you). From the cool trailer, it looks like they changed a lot of things. Wonder if it's about a different girl.

Of course, it stars the lovable Naka Riisa♥
(She also voiced the main character in the anime version, and she was perfect and gave life to Kanno). Ah, on a side note, I saw her in Music Station singing as Zebra Queen (which never fails to make me lol) and it seems she's not as shy or awkward as she used to be anymore.


PS: Since I'm really in the mood, if anyone has any TV show or gameshow that has Naka Riisa in it, pass it to me and I'LL SUB IT! (It's been so long ><) However, the video has to be:
-good quality (not youtube kind of blurry video)
-interesting (not just some boring interview)

Dude... update your LJ more often

After doing some google-research, I've decided on which laptop to get.

This one, the Acer Aspire 1825PTZ...

The fact that it's also a tablet appeals to me. I don't know why. It's a laptop AND I can pretend that it's an iPad and/or a Kindle.

-Small, but faster than a netbook
-Tablet/HD touchscreen goodness

-Super shiny outside cover = fingerprint trap
-Maybe it won't be as fast as a regular laptop for the same price, I dunno, probably

For me personally, I don't think it looks very nice on the outside. But once you open it and turn it on, I just love what it has and can do. I think I read somewhere that it's able to be used as GPS and is cool to the touch. Hopefully they're both true because 1. I'm tired of getting lost, 2. I hate getting my burned by a laptop.

It's the only tablet-laptop I found that's reasonably priced. I saw a few Fujitsu and HP ones that look more gorgeous and have higher specs, but they cost about twice the price of this one. So, no-can-do-sville, baby doll..

Hopefully I'd be able to get it sometime next month..or even before *crosses fingers*

Movie of the month [April 2010]

Better put this up before I forget.

Hey, summer is almost here! That means mindless popcorn flicks.. let's hope they're not all bad this year. Here are the top 5 movies I've seen in April.

1. Kick-Ass

At first I wondered why it received a whopping 8++ rating on imdb. It's a super hero movie but it's not. It's different, and funny, and bloody, and cool. Not wanting to spoil it for those who haven't seen it, but look out for Hit Girl! She steals the show. You'll love it if you don't mind a bit of blood. It's quite violent.

p/s: I'm having trouble with the links again. I don't know why ~_~;

Movie of the month [March 2010]

I'm so sorry to keep disappearing on everyone..again T_T March was a veeeerrrrry tough month. Well it's time to move on. After all it's a new month and things have been looking up so far.. I'll talk more about it later, f-list (but please dont hold it against me if I suddenly disappear again u_u")..

Movies of the month (I can't stay long so I'll keep it short this time..)
1. Dead Set

Okay it's not a movie, but a 5 episode E4 British miniseries. It's mostly set in the Big Brother studio.. and there's a zombie outbreak in England. It's almost as awesome as 28 Days Later so if you're a fan of 28DL and zombie movies and have missed out on this gem.. LOOK FOR IT NOW! You also have to see it if you're a fan of Big Brother as there are cameos from some past contestants and... you get to see Davina McCall turn into a flesh eating zombie!

...okay I give up. (maybe you can tell that I wrote this in a rush)

[sticky] Help needed to find chords to this song..

I love this version of the song from the Galileo OST. Thus I quickly cooked this up just to try my luck at finding the chords for this beautiful song.. I've been searching everywhere to no avail :(

If anyone has the guitar tabs/sheet music for VS. ~知覚と快楽の螺旋~ (Guitar × Piano Ver.), Please let me know a.s.a.p okay? I'll try my best to repay you as best as I can. Lol..^^

Movie of the month [January 2010]

Sorry for being MIA a lot last month :( Hope everyone's alright. I'll try harder this month. But for now, movie time..

1. The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus..

Strange, unique, fun, imaginative. However I don't think this movie is for everyone (some people I know found it boring). It was kind of sad watching it knowing that there'll never be another movie starring Heath Ledger. He was really one of a kind.

2. Merantau Warrior
How did this get up here? Haha.. I saw the cool looking trailer for this Indonesian movie and went to watch one of the limited screenings even though I was kinda sceptical. But if you're a fan of action and martial arts movies and enjoyed Ong Bak, you'll love Merantau Warrior. It showcases the martial arts called silat.. and although the plot is rather similar to Ong Bak, I thought it was better than Ong Bak in almost every department. The fight scenes were impressive (you'd wonder how many stuntmen went to hospital during shooting) and I was pleasantly surprised :D

3. Up in the Air
This is definitely an adult kind of movie (I dont mean it "that" way).. about life, work, choices, etc. I probably wouldn't understand this movie a few years ago. I must admit in a way I envy George Clooney's character's lifestyle (always on the move, not knowing where he'll end up or who he'll meet tomorrow) but it does seem terrifyingly lonely as well.

4. New York, I Love You

Maybe I was distracted, but although I thought it was okay I wasn't as wowed with NY,ILY as much as Paris, Je'taime. Another maybe is that the movie will mean a whole lot more to those who live in/have been to/are in love with New York.. I dont know. The two parts that stood out for me was Shunji Iwai's (because I was really looking out for it) segment that had Orlando Bloom and Christina Ricci, and also the part with Shia LaBeouf, which was bittersweet.. and it was nice to see him act in something really different and not be annoying xP.

Okay, so January was a relatively slow movie month for me. I was kind of (making myself) busy. I also started watching Entourage and became addicted! Now I'm trying to catch up and it's taking away a chunk of the movie watching time. Lol..

Also special mention to Love Shuffle. I didn't like it at first, but I kept with it and it ended up being funnier and deeper than expected. I don't know why Usa-tan was going goatey (inside joke :P) for Mei-chan (any time after the second episode) when Ai-Ai (played by Karina) was 1000x better. She's cool, supportive, smart, fun, mature, and absolutely BEAUTIFUUUULL. Baka no Usa-tan..
