Holy Crap

I forgot yesterday was Emma Watson's birthday. Why does it matter? She turned 18 and now I won't feel like a total sleeze saying that she's gorgeous. She's legal and I can ogle from afar.

Jen is happy, that is all!

New Anime

Okay, so this weekend I purchased the box set to Madlax. I've heard good things about it. It's from Bee Train which brought us the mind fuck known as Noir,

which is a wonderful series. I still haven't finished it, I think Lisa, Sean and I left off with around 10 episodes left to finish way back in the day. Nonetheless, that was an excellent series.

Dan and I were watching Madlax yesterday and I went a little ahead of him, I'm currently on episode 16. So far the series is excellent. It's a little slow in the beginning and there's a lot of information thrown at you and it's very difficult to grasp everything at first. Once it gets to episode 12, events and information start to fall into place and the plot begins to make more sense. Oh yea, heh, Madlax is of course pretty much a contracted killer/protector. Margaret..well, I have no clue still. The start of the show is all about Madlax, then for a few episodes, they really focus on Margaret's character, a book and an underground corp that is evil and wants to keep a civil war going in Madlax's home country. Episode 10-12 is a turning point in the series. They give equal screen time for both characters and while their situations are still separated, the story is beginning to merge the two together. Of course they are connected some how.

I give the animation quality a 9 or 10. They really went all out in my opinion on the animation. It's bold and vibrant, minimal CG, but very little to take away from the series. The two main characters live in different countries, one is war torn and the other is "peaceful". The contrast is very evident for each of them. The characters are also very pretty. Thankfully, they animated them to look like "normal" women..body wise. They are not stick thin and top heavy...well one character does have large boobs, but we can skip that. :)

So far the character development is at a minimum so far. Madlax herself is an excellent character in my opinion. She's slowly developing, opening up a bit to Venessa Rene. She has the right mix of strength and vulnerability. Margaret is the other main character. She is very much like her Noir counterpart Kirika Yuumura. No recollection of her past, quiet, and somewhat emotionless. It's not that I'm complaining at all, she's just a very strange person, often too strange for my tastes.

There's a character I really like on the show aside from Madlax, which is Vanessa...she rocks. I don't recommend watching AMV's or trailers for the series. But let's just say she's now a favorite character of mine.

Also, the music/OST is awesome! Just the right mix of rock-techno and instrumental music. Madlax's battle song is perfect including the lyrics. It drives me crazy sometimes when there's music in anime but the lyrics do not match the story or scene, throws me for a loop.

There's more I could write about, but I don't want to spoil it. Sean, I think this is up your alley, beware of the confusion at first. I'm enjoying it though. I'm pretty sure I'll finish it tonight, that's my plan anyways. My geek post for the week. :)

House Is Getting There

We've been cleaning the house. Soon our bedroom will be ready for people to see. It's really coming together nicely. I'm really pleased. We have thrown out so much, our patio is constantly filled with crap to throw out. Dan and Jessie really did a nice job with our new book shelf, which by the way was a total bitch to set up. We talked to our neighbors some, they're a little crazy. They remind me of my parents when they were young. Constantly fighting and yelling. And Sean over reacts towards his kids all of the time, it's pathetic. But, I'm not sticking my nose in it. They're just really strange.

Too bad I have to go into work tomorrow, we really did have a nice day off.

Color Test

You are the sort of person that needs a peaceful environment. You seek release from stress and freedom from conflicts and disagreements, of which you seem to have had more than your fair share. But you are taking pains to control the situation by proceeding cautiously and you are right in doing so as you are a very sensitive person.

You dislike playing the field in every sense of the word. When you develop a relationship it needs to be a close fulfilling one, one that has deep meaning for all parties concerned.

Although you are, deep down, a very caring person, you are very particular in the choice of friends and indeed very demanding at times. You can be most quarrelsome and controversial and it is because of this argumentative trait you can at times explode into open conflict - conflict with even those you may care for and love. It is because of this inherent argumentative streak in you that may have resulted in broken hopes and dreams.

The tension that you are experiencing at this time is perhaps due to physical and/or mental frustration. It would appear that you are not appreciated and as a consequence, the situation is most disagreeable. You seek personal recognition and the appreciation of others to compensate for the lack of like minded people with whom to ally yourself. You would like to surrender and merge with others but your inherent self-restraint makes it difficult for you to open up. This disturbs you as you regard such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome. You want to be liked, admired and appreciated for yourself.

You would like to be respected and valued for yourself and this can only be achieved from within a close and harmonious relationship.

I've had it!

That's it! We're all guilty, but I'm tired of walking into a messy home. We are having a meeting tonight about it. We are cleaning up our dishes after we use them, that includes the pans. And coffee cups are put into the dishwasher after use, not laid on the floor by the computer. Beer bottles are thrown out and and not placed all over the tables. I lived in a messy home almost all of my life, I am not going to live this way again. We pick up after ourselves during the weekdays, and Saturday's we clean the house thoroughly, meaning bathrooms and giving a good scrub in some areas. I don't give a rats ass what our bedrooms look like, that's our own living quarters. I will pick up the hall way and stairway today. I'm done with living like this. And if you see something that has not been put away, I don't care if it was not yours you, take the fucking initiative to put it away. We will slip up sometimes, but I'm tired of the laziness.
