Me, talking. Listen, and you get to embarrass me horribly in front of the internets! 8D




Language is the best thing a person can have an interest in, I think. It just makes everything easier. Examining how language is used as a tool of alienation in Remembering Babylon? Having started, I think I could do it in my sleep. Without any critical resources. And I'm not even finished the book yet. ♥

(For the record, there is a guy visiting our university who is an expert on Norse languages - Scandinavian epics - all that sort of thing. Craig said he'd probably be the envy of every man in the field (there are about four, worldwide) if he had a decent protege, and I would like to be that protege, but I have never studied those languages. Where do I go to sign up for geekery that enormous? I want, dammit. XD)

Also, when the fuck do I get my tax money back? Jesus Christ.




[EDIT] WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!

(Gurren-Lagann has healing powers.)

Work was... fine. Lots of stuff to do. Pascale felt ill; the other staff were new or useless. I hauled a lot of shit around and I think my spine and both my arms are going to die. I am also wide, wide awake, so I'm going to watch the rest of Gurren-Lagann out of the completely misguided belief that this will help things.

(It will help me feel better. It will not help me fall asleep.)

Episoide 23+ )

And now it is 1 AM, and I am going to see Dark Knight with Wyrren in eight hours, which means I need to be up in six. :D; Good planning, there, Rave.

There's just something about Viral. XD I'm not entirely sure what it is. It's partially character design, and partially voice, and partially the character himself - but there's something about him that just causes me to happy!writhe every time he comes on screen. XD And then there's the fact that he fights according to his own code and takes the consequences of that, no matter what they are, because he is amazing, and I appreciate that in a character. OH, VIRAL. (Also, Cytomander makes me happy in my everywhere. XD) And... and, yeah, I pretty much love everyone. Especially Leeron and the fact that, mid-battle, he'll get all sparkly over a piece of engine; and that chick in the engine room, because she reminds me of Shera, if Shera were less yes-captain and more ass-kicking and taking names.

And I appreciate that the battles do not, so far, stretch stupidly. There are no long fucking pauses for stupid power-ups. There are always valid reasons for extended battles. I love that about this series. ^___^ Gives me hope for the future of shounen. Although I will admit that sometimes they pull off things that are just a little too impossible. XD)

(My plan to get up early was foiled by loud neighbours, and then the internet wasn't working, and this somehow manages to destroy the rest of my day, despite the fact that it should make me more productive. So I've spent about three hours so far watching Gurren-Lagann, and it, uh, doesn't seem like I'm going to stop before the end of the series or it's time for work - whatever comes first.)

Other things discovered:
Viral = Hiyama Nobuyuki = Hiei = Link = Ikkaku = Li Kouyuu
Ran Shuuei = Morikawa Toshiyuki = Griffith = Sephiroth = Shishi Wakamaru

AWESOME OR AWESOME, Y/Y.

In other news, I would hit Viral like a really fast, really heavy, really accurate thing.




Things discovered while drawing: SANGA'S ELDEST SISTER HAS NO ARMS. WHAT. Well, she has sort of... the fin equivalent of bat wings. I don't know how this happened. XD;

Okay, so this really is the greatest thing ever. :DDDD I love the motion animation and the colours. X3 Not so hot on the story just yet, but the characters and the colours and the... well... enthusiasm? It is more than enough to rope me in.

(Kamina is. His awesome. It... it is blinding. Also, Leeron is simultaneously painful and fantastic. I like Yoko. Also, I like the animation! ...yeah, I have nothing else to say. XD XD XD)

[EDIT]

ALSO NOW I AM UP TO VIRAL AND THERE IS REALLY NOTHING ELSE TO SAY. :D :D :D :D :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
