I am strung out on jpop music videos and DBZ Budokai II.|
Get it while it's hot!
Random pack o' musics from 2004 that I was sending to someone else, might as well not waste the yousendit, eh? Tracks: Bennie K - Sunrise; Dreams Come True - Love Letter and Yasashii Kisu o Shite; fairlife - Eien no Tomodachi feat Okano Akihito; fictionjunction YUUKA - akatsuki no kuruma; Hirahara Ayaka - BLESSING; kaela kimura - happiness!!; shibasaki kou - katachi arumono. If the link doesn't work let me know and I'll re-upload it somewhere, for all 2 of you who might want something like that ;)
And here, have another music from my own little 1-music-at-a-time server.
That would be Neiro by Kreva. Kreva I think is a guy. But it might be a band. I don't know. It's a good song.
So, screencaps of eps 166 and 167 probably won't be happening until some point when I remember some scene and go "Hey, I need that picha for some doofy shit I'm doin...."
I'm still working on part 3 of the Kouhaku, which is uber-old news by now but I like the pics I got and so I'mma do it.
DBZ Budokai II
If you want a uber-cool mega fighting game, go get Soul Calibur II. That game is tha bomb and has like a million move combos for each character, including those bizarre Street Fighter II moves where you gotta move the movey-stick four different directions and then hit A and B at the same time to do some uber finishing move.
Budokai II does not have that. There's a pretty limited set of moves for each character, and of course the "most popular" characters have more moves than the minor characters, which really sucks for me because of course my favorite character is Raditz who was in about 8 chapters.
So, why am I so addicted to this game? Because first of all it LOOKS GREAT. I mean, it looks just like the show, but without some of the suck that TOEI is so famous for. Plus, let's be honest, Raditz wears no pants. And you get like two costumes for each character, and so there's the regular Raditz outfit like on the show, and then there's a blue Saiyan armor outfit without the side fileleys on the shortpants... it's quite yey from a thigh-and-butt perspective. Yes I'm playing a videogame so I can look at animated character's thighs. Shut up. D00d Raditz is totally teh smex in this videogame. And he like NEVER WEARS PANTS. It's so awesome.
Sadly, I suck at videogames, so I have yet to win the World Tournament. And I refuse to play WT with characters that aren't Raditz or Cell. Haven't actually unlocked Cell yet, we're still playing through Story Mode, but we will. And I will win with Raditz, I don't care what you say. Now I'm thinking of Pokemon, I might tell about one of my PkMn games in a minute.
But back to this game. All of Raditz's attacks are named like calendar things. But you know, he didn't have any attack names in canon, unless you count yelling "KUTABARE!!" at Goku an attack ;) Anyway, his attacks are like Dynamite Monday, Saturday Crush, Double Sunday, Exciting Year, stuff like that. I wish an attack was called Month Of Sundays, but there's not one like that. Chris Sabat being Raditz is OK I guess. Could have been much much worse. I think someone else is doing Cell, too. But I haven't been listening real close.
Point is, big beefy guys beatin the crap out of each other. Yeah baby, I'm there ;)
The Cute Got Me
First let me just list a few of the jpop artists that piss me off. Kishimoto Hayami, GLAY, Hamasaki Ayumi, Utada Hikaru, that uber-skinny chick that always looks strung out (forgot her name), move, Zone. Those acts piss me off because of their mediocrity. Shiina Ringo's songs piss me off, some of 'em, because they sound like Avril Lavigne songs and Avril Lavigne pisses me off. But Shiina has some songs I really like, like Salle De Bain and that one that sounds like Tokyo Jihen. In fact, that's why she pisses me off, because I end up going "Dammit I want to hear Tokyo Jihen!" But she's not mediocre, she's good, just... her songs piss me off. There are actually lots of other bands that piss me off, but I can't think of 'em right now.
Now for the acts that *don't* piss me off at all:
Halcali makes me happy. I might buy their DVD. All is right with the world when there's a Halcali video on.
Koda Kumi's voice is underappreciated because she's so sexy. But she really sings great, so stop thinkin bout her navel and take a listen.
I have a crush on FLOW. Mainly that guy who keeps his hed relatively shaved and wears a hat a lot.
Rip Slyme are just so so pwn. And I am convinced that Su and Pes make out. A lot. I love them.
Some hiphop singer called "ahhco" just blew me away with some song called "Steppin". I dunno anything else about that, but like, damn. It's a awesome song.
AKFG and Soul'd Out and Chemistry and you know, all that yah.
So now on to the scary part. If you'd asked me a week ago (prior to being strung out on music videos) what I thought of Morning Musume and Hello! Project in general, I would have sed "Suck." And I would not have been wrong. Also, I have said before that W are the most useless group evar. But you know what? They are SO DAMN CUTE. I mean, that is some cute there. And one MM video has PUPPIES in it even! So after being bombarded with this amazing cute, I now like Morning Musume and W. I still won't claim they don't suck, because they kinda suck. But I LIKE it. And that scares me.
I want plushies.
