Dee-lightfully yours…

August 27, 2008

In lieu of pondering doing a Bleach review like my Naruto one, or wondering which new anime series to watch (currently I’m re-watching Samurai Champloo), I didn’t want to leave the blog entry-less until I figured out what to do review-wise.

So… I decided to personalize, just a bit.

Yes, this will probably get the least read statistics when I’m looking over the blog, but no matter. We’ve always got to start somewhere.

Anyways, I’m currently reading the Maha Go Go Go manga [Japanese comics, and BTW, pronounced MAN (with the A like in mama) – GA (same thing as before with the A). If I hear one more person call it meingaa (like kanga)…..], which has done nothing to help with the wait for the Speed Racer DVD release. I suppose I could watch the old series again. (Well, the manga and the soundtrack. Good soundtrack, by the way.)

I’ve also tried to take up knitting. Yeah, I know, sounds totally dorky, but after I saw this Wonder Woman sweater, well, I imagined the possibilities. This is obviously something incredibly advanced, so I’m working on a beanie. Knitting is fun and it does look cool rather quickly, however the biggest problem I have with it is the time it takes. It makes me wonder how we as the world survived before textile factories…

I’m also in the midst of finishing off Doctor Who: Series 2. It took me a lot longer than I had thought to warm up to David Tennant. It’s not that I don’t like him as an actor, it’s that I found myself wishing for the Eccleston days. There may be a part of me that always misses that Doctor, but Tennant has solidified himself as far as I’m concerned. I’m hooked.

And believe it or not, yours truly is stressing over an upcoming kung fu test. My master is from Taiwan, so he doesn’t subscribe to any kind of belt system. We have three levels: teacher, disciple, and master. (I often explain it as starting off as a padawan, then jedi, jedi knight, and jedi master.) So I’m looking to leave my padawan status and become a jedi–teacher. The toughest thing right now isn’t necessarily the forms but the other parts, like holding the horse stance for two minutes and other proof of flexibility and strength requirements. *sigh* It makes me wish I’d done this as a kid, it’d be easier now. 😉

Lastly I want to recommend a website, I mean, since this is a blog about animation stuffs. This is my manga avatar I designed at Faceyourmanga.com. Contrary to what it says on the front, you don’t have to pay anything to get at least an avatar appropriate sized copy of your avatar. (And if you’ve got skills with Illustrator, getting a hi-rez version should be no problem). Head on over and see what you come up with.

So, that’s what’s happening currently in Dee world. (And only a few weeks to go for Speed Racer DVD, Avatar Book 3 DVD, and Pushing Daisies Season One DVD).
