It's the final week of the semester (before study and exam weeks), so I've been burdened with a lot of tests and assignments, which would hopefully be finished once the weekend arrives.
Apologies for not frequenting blogs much (which would include this one haha). I have this one large quasi-discussion/semi-rant/wholly nonsense post that I have been keeping in the backlog for a while, and I might just put it up once my hands aren't tied (I actually have one small test and an assignment due for tomorrow, so back to the chopping board I go...)
To make this not a simple 'I'm still alive, and I'll be back' post, here's a few things that I did recently:
-I started to marathon through the last 8 album by UI-70. Currently at Splendid World, and I'm enjoying it very much. The circle might produce a lot of non-memorable works, but this is their best so far. Stoner rock/doom metal Touhou arrangements, hell yeah!
-I'm re-reading Carl Sagan's Cosmos, one of the very few non-fiction book that I enjoyed. I actually found it rather tedious to read it on the first go (which was about a year ago), but I grew to love it over subsequent readings. RIP Sagan, you'll be missed.
-Finish watching Hourou Musuko, which is perhaps one of the least popular series of Winter. It's not too bad I guess, if you're into slow-paced story about school kids growing up, with the underlying message of gender reversal (or would it be better phrased as 'confusion'?). I didn't feel much after watching the series - maybe because it isn't as bold as I expected it to be? Or maybe it has something to do with the slow pace. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend it to other people, although I'm not in anyway implying that it's bad. It's just not something that everyone would find interesting, I guess.
Anyway, here's random question for you Touhou fans out there:
Which one of these two music do you prefer more?
-Faiths is for the Transient People
-The Venerable Ancient Battlefield ~ Suwa Foughten Field
Also, because I'm feeling random, here's a pic of Nue:
