Before K-ON!, there was BECK

Alright, this one has been sitting in my backlog for far too long...

Well, here you have it folks, the last entry for 2010, in which I'll post my two cents on this one particular musical anime series. I'll hopefully write another post by tomorrow, on new year resolutions and stuff.

At the time of writing (4th of December), I am 2 days away from being slaughtered by the fearsome attack of not one, but FOUR papers in exam’s week. Also, it’s 1 in the morning, and I’ve just slept for 5 hours last night.

So why am I still up, writing this? For one thing, I suddenly found myself getting excited over the next anime convention, imagining all the awesome stuff and awesome people that I expect to meet. But there’s another thing – something more significant – that made me to get up from bed, to write this… and that would be an old anime series that I’ve just finished marathoning (during exam week, even!)

So I was out getting sunburnt and scraped by thorns

The title pretty much sums up what I've been doing in the last couple of days.

Geologists call it 'fieldwork', layman may prefer to call it 'lurking in the middle of nowhere'. As for me... well, I'd say it's just another day of work.

For the last 4 days, I've been conducting a geological fieldwork to prepare my final year project's presentation. I've since went back and forth to several roadcuts in a rural area, about 40 Km plus from my house.

After regressing back into my old habit of staying in the room all day and taking it easy, it took me some time to adjust into spending half of the day examining geological features (i.e. rocks) in the fields, engaging in meticulous measuring and recording of data that would require a certain dedication (they can get pretty tedious and boring - and it's me that's talking here, heh).

A christmas in the tropics

I wish I could say that I was going through backlogging on Christmas, but I did something even better. Oh the joy.

And it gets better: the said activity would presume for... I dunno, a week? Busy time for me indeed. But don't worry, I'm taking it easy; 's cool. I might write the followup in the next post, if I'm in the mood for it.

So basically, this is a post to say that I'll be on a sort-of hiatus for a week or so. I'll try to check out other people's posts when I'm done.

And of course, there's the Touhou girls and animus waiting for me as well. Just wait for me, I'll be back...

Enjoy your Christmas and weekend, guys!

Comic Fiesta 2010

So. I went to Comic Fiesta for both day, and stayed for the whole day.

It was very tiring - I spend practically the whole day standing - and I was very very nervous on going to the event (on both day I actually had 'take it easy' chanting in my head on and on)...

But lemme tell you, that it was FUCKING AWESOME.

Picture very related

Wallpaper post, rants, CF

Since everyone is posting their wallpaper, I figured that I'll do the same as well.

You may laugh for 3 minutes:

Dat XP

Dreaming of Touhou

I had this post sitting in my backlog for a while, so thought I'd post it here after reading some of the related posts in a certain blog (sup, dude).

Also, I'm slowly going through the blogs that I've neglected in the past few days. I-it's not that I love reading all those posts by you guys or anything; I just have a lot of time to spend now!

You know, I always wanted to write about some of the dreams I had, but most of them are pretty sketchy to be put in words. Not to mention that they're pretty random as hell, and are rather... well, boring.

Backlog: movies

Wow, I've been rather productive lately, huh? Let's hope I can keep it that way.

So, after I was done with finals, the first thing that I did was (trying) to get some sleep. But then I thought that sleeping would be a waste of time, so I decided to catch up on the movies that have sitting in my backlog for quite some time.

Usually I'm not really much of a movie watcher (2D > 3D, yeah!), but suddenly I was in the mood for it. Heck, I even attempted a sleep deprivation while I was watching them - I got KO-ed at 6 AM tho. It's around 12 ON here, and I'm still feeling a bit groggy.

Comedy is a powerful weapon

Honestly, I don't really give a fig about politics ('cause I'm a recluse who thinks a lot of humans are effing stupid, and that the subject in question is usually wrapped up in a lot of jargons and bullshits, partly due to them politicians).

This guy, however, is awesome:


And even if you're not really into politics, the part where he talks about a certain part of... well, just go and watch it alright?

It's been a while since I've saw something that really cracked me up like this.

This picture is highly relevant - OH YESSSSS

And as I promised in the last post, I have indeed finished my papers! Time to take it easy~

How's everyone doing?

P/S Whoops, so much for having a Touhou related post... well, uh, enjoy that Koishi pic :V

Oh hey, procrastinatin

Yeah, yeah, as if I was gonna take it seriously on studying, hah!

But, really, I'm trying my hard at going through the books. And my brain's cramped from all the reading - it's not as if I'm dependent on the internet or anything!

The internet... IT'S CONTROLLING ME!!!

Actually, I interrupt my (very short) self-imposed hiatus because I want to share something that I found on dA:

I promise myself I won't procrastinate...

what's with 4 papers coming up next week.

So I've set a goal of not spending too much time on the internet, which are usually spent either by looking at Touhou fanarts/videos/doujins, searching for new series to add to my to-watch list, or more often that not, pressing F5 as I view pages of blogs and discussion board (wow that's so sad...)

Don't worry guys, I really plan to take it easy for these papers. I'll slowly go through em not that there'll be any good getting myself stressed over them anyway haha

Anyway, enough talking, it's time to go back to the books guys. brb~

PS: How's the winter going on (for those in the Northern part)? I've heard that things are getting pretty bad there...

PPS: have this one hot picture of Mokou (pun intended) to warm things up

Discussion on weaboos - a continuation from a certain blog

All right guys, let's get down to business shall we?

We're gonna do a bit of inter-blog post discussion here. I’m kinda rambling here, so apologize for this, uhhh... quality post.

So much for easy modoing...

Today's paper was a disaster, I won't say anything else about it, except that I'm hoping that I'll at least past the paper. Don't want to be going for an extension of a semester man...

Anyway, have a bit of filler post, which is somewhat related to the next posts that I'm planning. Also, a small question at the end:
