all the books

kaiji zawa
Because I feel like feeling inadequate, I'm going to make a list of every book that I have read that was not assigned for school, in the order that I remember them. I'm leaving out things like Where the Sidewalk Ends and Goosebumps because that is just embarrassing.....



* = updated after I remembered more/remembered actual titles

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Silver Chair
The Horse and His Boy
The Magician's Nephew
The Last Battle
The Ruby in the Smoke
The Shadow in the North
The Tiger in the Well
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Life, the Universe and Everything (.......though I might not've finished it)
Contact
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

szs YO
OKAY SO

I DECIDED WE ARE REALLY DOING THIS

"MY SOUL, YOUR BEATS"
YOUTUBE CHORUS
COLLAB


I polled a buncha ya'll about half a year ago, and that was the song that the most people responded to being able to probably sing hopefully, SOOOOO...

STEP 1: Look at the lyrics & notes below! courtesy of Anime Lyrics dot ComCollapse )

STEP 2: Practice singing the song, and then record it! Make sure you wear headphones to listen to the track as you sing so that the recording is *just* your voice and nothing else. See if you can record it in conditions such that you can sing nice and confidently! I can adjust volumes easily enough, but the overall feel will be great if everyone's voices are nice and loud instead of sung quietly<3 Don't worry about mic quality, mine's pretty crappy. 030

(You can even ask for certain parts, if you'd like! Maybe you're better at different verses than others??)

STEP 3: Let me know if you'd rather not be featured in a solo/duet part in the final version; if you don't say anything, I'll totally feature everyone at at least one of those points in the song. :D

STEP 4: Export the track and send it on over to my e-mail: minako134@gmail.com.

This project is open to EVERYONE AND ANYONE, because it's just a throw-together thing that I wanted to do to see if we could be awesome like those Niconico Douga people with their fancy-pants choruses. 8) SO LINK IT AROUND, GO NUTS.

This will probably be edited as I get more help translating some of the stuff I couldn't figure out well.

There have been quite a lot of art submitted at Pixiv with things like "Hang in there, Japan!!" included in them. Some of them are great to see, but others, it feels like it's bordering on being out-right insensitive. I realized I wasn't the only one who thought this, after finding this submission under Pixiv's daily rankings today.

all views expressed within do not necessarily reflect exactly my ownCollapse )

I'm not confident with a lot of this translation, so if anyone out there could take a look below here and see if I translated anything really horribly, I'd appreciate input! I would like to link to this as a reference for some communities...

original Japanese textCollapse )

I should also make a note here that the survey results have continued to increase, so here are the numbers at the time that I checked:

"What do you think about all the art being submitted currently about the earthquake?"
I feel better having seen them! - 3,774 votes
I want there to be even more - 1,388 votes
I think they should reconsider/use restraint/have more respect - 6,926
I think there should be less - 872 votes
It felt hostile from the submitter - 1,183 votes


I guess that's it for now. Thanks for your time reading all this. o/

EDIT (3/14 @ 10:13am PST) :: I've fine-tuned the translation so it reads a little more smoothly, and got rid of the parts that I wasn't sure about, thanks to some help from a friend! Next I'll try to find a way to double-space the lines... If you know how, comment below, please! XD

EDIT (3/14 @ 10:37am PST) :: Decided to break the translation up into smaller paragraphs, so hopefully that makes it easier to read. Please feel free to pass a link to this post around, I don't mind. My more important posts in this journal are f-locked, so it's not a problem. ^^

EDIT (3/14 @ 10:44am PST) :: Here's an update for the survey results:

I feel better having seen them! - 4,166 votes (^+392)
I want there to be even more - 1,522 votes (^+134)
I think they should reconsider/use restraint/have more respect - 7,686 votes (^+760)
I think there should be less - 959 votes (^+87)
It felt hostile from the submitter - 1,349 votes (^+166)

I feel kinda bad for friending all those people at the same time that I've been using my LJ less and less. Oh well, I'm still posting once a week? Or so? I haven't checked. THIS IS SO WEIRD I used to post 3 times every 2 days on average or something.

MEEEEEEEEEME stolen from stud_monkey:

Pick 20 movies/anime/video games/literary works and put their summaries from Better than it Sounds (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BetterThanItSounds) and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess

i just did anime.Collapse )

I'll put up correct guesses and their guessees as them come! Some of these are horribly easy, and others are kind of randomly out there, but they are definitely all anime that I have really enjoyed.

EDIT:: HOLY SHIT PEOPLE AHAHAHAHAHA

I doubt anyone will get #17, but I'll leave it up for another little while before revealing...

EDITED MOAR:: AMANDA RULES ALL

iiiiiit's a great day for EGYPT~

I do the stupidest things on my breaks at work. They have to be something low-energy, because my breaks are my, well, breaks from a very active and energy-sucking job. Usually it involves organizing fanart, making graphics, or what have you.

Anyway, have another BEST OF 2010 POST YAAAAAAY ARE YOU EXCITE

I sized down all the images because they'd be hella huge otherwise lol

mushishi ginko pondering maho&#39;s case
SHEEEET! I open at work tomorrow ahahahaha why do I never check my work schedule for the week until the last second before my weekend is over (that is a rhetorical question I know the answer) anyway I need to go to bed, sob

but FIRST

I am practically finished with holiday cards!!


And my reward for that was GOING to be making a certain RP account, but I ran out of time and ic epicmafia stole me away, far away, for so many hours, as it does. But I'm going to share right now who it is I was going to make an account for, in fact, who I will make an account for tomorrow perhaps, if the mayfield_rpg event doesn't swallow me alive...

I give you... Her Highness Yoshimune, the 8th shogun of the Tokugawa lineCollapse )

I'll post at dear_mun probably, looks like it's okay to be a little less formal with how people use that place these days right... 83c

Basically 2010 has taught me that I am a loser who can't do anything right. SUPER SWEET

I am pretty much just tired of my shit

why am I so retarded, and yet good enough at fooling people into thinking I'm not retarded, so that I let them down. time after G** D*** time. all the time, every single day.

whatever

anyway

If anyone out there had a folder full of cute fanart to spam this post with...I really wouldn't mind...


...It could be anything, really, but you know how much I love Mushishi & Hetalia... *u*
