Bleach OST and Some Who

I’m not really up for talking much lately, in fact I can’t work up any motivation to type up anything. So I don’t have much to say on this post, but I really wanted to share my love with the Bleach soundtrack and some Doctor Who music videos. So enjoy~

 

Lyrics:
Bite them! Poke them! Torture and gore them! Bug them! Tease them! Mess with their heads! Slaughter, gore them. Slitter and wear them. Burn them – grill them! Rattle their bones! Bite them! Eat them! Torture and Beat them! Maim them! Kill them! Cut off their heads! Slay them! Flay them! Wither and pull them! Dance on their graves ’cause now they’re dead!

 

 

Lyrics:

Cometh the Hour of our Reckoning, we will be ready
Cometh the Man who will Fight beside me and be steady
Cometh the Angel, the messenger from Hell we dreaded
Cometh the Devil’s disciples, so we must be ready

My heart is strong, my faith goes on, but if my world is threatened,
I’ll fight the fight, they’ll pay the price, their blood will flow with vengeance!
The dogs of war will rip apart hostility unbounded,
And to the end our guns will roar until the enemy is

Crushed
To the point of no return
Beg for mercy, scum of Satan
Lucifer’s a corpse in waiting!

 

Lyrics:
For every man there is a cause which he would proudly die for.
Defend the right to have a place for which he can belong to.
And if we go and fight, we face their hearts in desperation.
And shed his blood to stem the flood of an impending invasion.

 

Lyrics:
I can tell you’ve never been true to me
I can smll that you’re acting so fearfully
I can hear what you’re hoping I want to hear
I can feel the alarm bells ringing in me
I can touch but I know you don’t feel a thing
I can pray but I know you commit a sin
I can sense now it’s all become clear to see
You’re no good, and you mean no good, treacherously.

A Throne for Avengers And Damn I Wish I Could Draw

I know it’s been sorta official for a while now, but Tumblr has exploded with Avengers gifs, pictures, quotes, etc. More specifically, it has exploded years worth of Tom Hiddleston paraphernalia, all of which I (no regrets) have been hoarding in my own personal Tom library. I mean, he’s no Chris Hemsworth, who I find just adoring by the way. Still, the man is quite charming, and he is just a brilliant actor.

Anyway, this is a sip of what I have stored away.

Aren’t they both just so lovely? I fan-girled and bought posters of both of them…anyway. You know I didn’t actually fall completely for Tom until I read this:

“TOM HIDDLESTON: Mark Ruffalo’s son. I kind of dedicate my performance to his son, his ten-year old, because he was on set a lot.  Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, the producer, they were enormously supportive on set.  They were very complimentary when they liked something that I was doing.  I would do a take, and they would say, “Awesome.  You got it.  Let’s — “  And Kevin Feige would be like, “God, that was great.  Let’s move on.”  And you get on with the day.  The days that Mark’s son was there, he was like, “Awesome job, Tom. We got it.  Let’s move on.”  Kevin would say the same thing, and then Mark’s son would say, “Oh, my God!  Tom!  That was incredible!  That was the most awesome thing I have ever seen!”  And I’m like, “I am doing this for you.”  And, you know, there were days when Mark would come in with him just to watch, because he wanted to watch.  He’d be like, “I’m sorry.  We’re here again.  He just loves you.”  And then you realize that that’s the power that these films can have.

It’s such a beautiful thing.  It’s a really amazing privilege.”

Isn’t that just melt worthy? Well, whatever, I think it is. I also stumbled across some Game of Thrones junk.

I’m sorry. You can smash my face into the bathroom mirror later, if you like. But first, some art that I admire.

I just love Deviantart artists. That last one, oh how I love her stuff…more or less the Labyrinth stuff. It’s a fetish, I’ll admit it. Here’s the fanfic (which is surprisingly hilarious and totally M rated) that accompanies the picture. It’s very well written.

Link: The T-Shirt Incident

You might wanna check out the pictures first, just so you know where the plot is coming from.

And I would just like to mention, that this whole Wonder Woman/Batman thing in the animated Justice League series…it’s totally legit. I mean, can we just take a moment and observe that sly expression on her face? She just kissed him, after he went frantic over trying to rescue her from a pile of rubble. Does that not scream potential relationship?

Shut up. I know I’m lame. Anyway, ignore the large expanse of white space up there. I was too lazy to edit the screen capture of my desktop. I also don’t understand the weird text after my Tom rant. Let’s just pretend I’m perfect.

Ha! I learned how to fix it! Ten points to…you know, I don’t care to admit what House I’ve been sorted into on Pottermore.

Slainte~

Magical Dragons and Hating My Lack of Talent

Youtube is a black hole in my life. Once I start browsing videos, I can’t stop…and once I hit Ellen episodes, I’m completely lost. She’s like Pringles, you can’t have just one.  Anyway, I came across Pen & Teller’s Fool Us, and I thought this was quite beautiful:

Isn’t it awesome? I mean, he’s just using a mirror, but the illusion itself is magical (ba-dum-cha). Anyway, I also found this gem:

Most of his routines are the same, but this bit was brilliant.

As is this:

Really Epic Face-Offs: Metrocon 2008 Cosplay Chess

Okay, so a few months ago I learned what cosplay chess was, and my first experience was meh. Some people just stood on a checkered board and took a few swings at eachother, nothing spectacular. I wasn’t impressed, but then I tried another one today from another con…and oh my lord, the entire thing was beyond epic. I mean, they must have spent hours upon hours practicing the choreography and special effects.

I’m fairly sure my mind has just been blown. I’ll share some clips with you~

I really liked this Mario Bros one, they did a good job capturing the essence of the game.

Whoever played Envy was really flexible…0.0

Once again, this choreography astounds me.

This one is a MUST WATCH. I mean, her costume is beautiful It must have taken forever to make.

 

Nerding Out: AMVs

Ugh, I feel like I’m utterly brain dead. I keep procrastinating on my Dante paper, and instead I’m doing the worst thing I can think of…

Watching AMVs. I mean, some of them are bloody brilliant, but honestly-if I’m going to waste valuable time, why not waste it on something more…productful? That is a word, isn’t it? Anyway, I thought I’d share some of them with you…anyone that cares…

Oh, I’ve also been watching more skits. They’re sorta like a black hold that takes over my life from time to time…that sounds so pathetic. I love Cupcake Cosplay though, their costumes are always gorgeous as are their performances. Can anyone possibly tell me what song they used?

Honestly, I don’t know how I get on this side of Youtube. Or this one.

Just Some Great Quotes (Movies/Anime/Books)

I know no one cares, but hey, this is my blog. I can post naked pictures of myself if I want…though, that would definitely scare away the kiddies.

I just really felt like posting some of the best quotes I’ve read, some recently and some not.

“This is what ruling is, lying on a bed of weeds ripping them out before they strangle you in your sleep.”
-Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)

“Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you!”
-Jareth (Labyrinth)

“You know what the sun looks like? Like he slit his wrists in a bathtub and the blood is all over the water. And the moon is just watching. She’s just watching him die. She must have driven him to it.”
-Tithe (Holly Black)

“And pleasant is the Faerie land,
Though an eerie tale to tell.
Aye, at the end of seven years…
We pay a tithe to Hell.

-Tam Lin

“Trust the wolves, but do not tell them where
you are going.”
-Instructions (Neil Gaiman)

“Alright, one more time. Let’s blow some shit up!”
-Witchblade


“I’m the one you love, but not the one you fall in love with.”
-What’s Past is Prologue
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6404955/1/Whats_Past_is_Prologue

“One night Confucius dreamt that he was
taken to visit the damned in hell.
He was very surprised to see that hell
was a beautiful banqueting room…
with the damned
sitting around the table,
groaning under the weight of the most
delicious food he had ever seen.
They were allowed to eat anything they
liked, but they had to use chopsticks,
and the chopsticks
were five foot long.
The damned were starving,
staring in agony
at the uneaten food before them,
knowing that even with all eternity
in which to solve the problem,
it could not be done.
And then Confucius
is taken to heaven.
And heaven is an identical
banqueting hall…
full of delicious food.
The people around the tables
are happy and well-fed,
but they, too,
must obey the same rule.
The food can only be eaten with
chopsticks that are five foot long.
Only in heaven,
they’re feeding each other.”
-The Wisdom of Crocodiles

“If I don’t wield the sword, I can’t protect you
If I keep wielding the sword, I can’t embrace you.”
-Bleach:Right Arm of the Giant (Tite Kubo)

Five Great FanFics

I think I might’ve mentioned this, but I read a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean too much. People say that you can never read too much, but that’s total bullshit. Reading can be a disease, taking over your life until all you do is sit in a corner day after day until your eyes begin to roll back into your skull and you fall out of your comfy-chair in convulsions.

The melodramatic is just too delicious to pass up.

Anyway, many of my fictional journeys have been in the company of fanfiction. I don’t want to admit how much I’ve actually read, but let’s just leave it at too much…again. I’ve come across a few that are particularly amazing, and while they have a handful of hiccups, they’re absolutely worth the read.  I’m not going to list all of my favorites, but I figure I’ll at least throw five out to you.

Warning: Most of these contain at least a dash of romance.

Movies

  1. Nowhere to Remain
    Summary
    : Obi-Wan was the perfect Jedi Knight: dignified, detached, possessing an almost courtly sense of propriety. But you would be wrong, if you thought he never loved – in secret, in his heart, he loved a love to move the stars. Sabe/Obi-Wan.
    (Star Wars – Rated: T – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 16 – Words: 56,771 – Reviews: 62 – Updated: 5-27-11 – Published: 7-19-08 – Obi-Wan K. & Handmaidens – Complete)

    Review: This is one of those fic’s that could have actually happened. Carryon14 captures the characters of Star Wars and that of her own take on Sabe perfectly, and when I say perfectly, I mean it. She paints Sabe in all sorts of colors that, in the movies, she was totally without (but she was a side-character, so what do you expect?). She’s portrayed as strong-willed, particularly wise, and utterly adorable handmaiden. The plot doesn’t revolve around romance, but hints at it a few times in between the major events that play out in the first movie. The ending, while somber, is realistic and relatively happy.Link: Nowhere to Remain

  2. All My Heroes
    Summary: After collecting a bounty, Boba Fett is confronted with the only person to ever stow away aboard Slave I, and soon is caught up in much more than he bargained for… Pre Ep. IV.
    (Star Wars – Rated: T – English – Sci-Fi/Adventure – Chapters: 12 – Words: 39,105 – Reviews: 82 – Updated: 4-16-10 – Published: 1-11-10 – Boba Fett – Complete)

    Review: Unlike the others, this has no romance whatsoever. This, just like NTR, captures the Star Wars characters very well, though the only one of worthy mention is Boba Fett. The plot involves a little girl who’s running from the Empire because of who her parents are, and ends up forming a rather interesting and realistic bond with the bounty hunter. The fic is pretty short, there are 3 short but engaging climaxes, and the ending is perfect. I’m a total sucker for Fett, so any Boba Fett lovers should definitely read this.Link: All My Heroes

  3. Once Upon a Time
    Summary: Wolves in human skin. A Beast and a lost maiden. A sanctuary in an oncoming storm. A prince of Elven blood. Sacrifices, debts, honor, and oaths. Ten long, beautiful years, and all the stories that fall within them.
    (Hellboy – Rated: M – English – Romance/Fantasy – Chapters: 50 – Words: 570,048 – Reviews: 436 – Updated: 12-24-11 – Published: 6-23-09 – Prince Nuada)

    Review: Holy shit, this fic is long. It is reallylong…but worth it, especially if you’re into detail-overloads and dark romance. The plot is deeper than Dostoevsky, the characters LA Knight has created are spectacular and uber creative, and often overlooked, this story actually takes time for small interactions that develop the characters and their relationships. LA Knight takes extreme care in establishing Nuada and the OC’s feelings for each other, as well as listing all the references at the end of each chapter. She uses a butt-ton of fairytale-related references, including both folktales and modern novels (such as Tithe by Holly Black), so expect to get a lesson in Lore-101.  Some criticism: sometimes the descriptions become repetitive and overplayed, as do the emotions that simmer between the OC and Nuada. There is some aspect of religion, which is strangely refreshing at times, that might irritate some readers, depending on your own sensitivity.Link: Once Upon a Time

    Anime

  4. Vespertine
    Summary: Two enemies strike a bargain to save what they both hold dear. He will reveal a truth that shakes her beliefs, drawing her into a web of lies and betrayal. She will offer the redemption for which he never hoped and show him how to be human again. ItaSaku.
    (Naruto – Rated: M – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 15 – Words: 125,064 – Reviews: 1910 – Updated: 2-22-10 – Published: 3-25-09 – Itachi U. & Sakura H. – Complete)

    Review: You know, the only fics I would read were ones with OCs until I read this. It’s all romance, but very real romance. It’s really surprising how well Cynchick captured Itachi’s personality, as is how she developed the plot out of completely believable circumstances. This is by far the best romance for any anime fic I’ve ever read: the writing is mature as are the facets of the preexisting characters Cynchick reveals. Just check out her bio, it basically screams BAMF.Link: Vespertine

  5. Silver Lining
    Summary: Sequel to Perception. Eight years ago they said goodbye forever. Now, when they have both lost everything, fate has thrown them together again in the most unlikely of ways. DeiSaku.
    (Naruto – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 15 – Words: 126,010 – Reviews: 1368 – Updated: 2-19-08 – Published: 10-5-07 – Deidara & Sakura H. – Complete)

    Review: I didn’t like the prequel to this (Perception). You gotta read it to understand this sequel, and while I like the way she portrays both Sakura and Deidara (and especially Kisame) in this, I really didn’t like her Itachi. It was to be expected that he was characterized the way he was considering where she lead the plot, but the first installment just isn’t one of my favorites. However, Silver Liningis a fun read, I didn’t stop until I finished with the epilogue. I sorta get the feeling that Cynchick is the Nora Roberts of Fanfiction, minus the overwhelming amount of smut Roberts usually plops into most of her books (though, there is some sexual content). Well, there is this one series by her that’s completely awesome…but I’ll save that for another post.Link:
    Perception
    Silver Lining

    Anyway, that’s it for now. There’s only so much blogging I can do before my ass starts to go numb.

    Cheers.
