I was listening to Poe's Haunted album for like the millionth time and finally decided to read House of Leaves (Mark Z. Danielewski). Got through the introduction today:

Old shelters-- television, magazines, movies-- won't protect you anymore. You might try scribbling in a journal, on a napkin, maybe even in the margins of this book. That's when you'll discover you no longer trust the very walls you always took for granted. Even the hallways you've walked a hundred times will feel longer, much longer, and the shadows, any shadow at all, will suddenly seem much deeper, much, much, deeper.


Very spooky start lmao. I like.

I caught up with both Paranatural (middle-schoolers getting involved with ghosty magic adventures) and Monsterkind (human social worker starts living among monster-people) today. Both are super cute aww.

He seemed not to hear. "You turned... you looked at me... and I think you tried to smile. There were colors all around you, but your eyes were dead, like all the rest. And your mouth was full of poison.


I finished Revival by Stephen King, this morning, and I loved it a lot. I always love stories that deal with religion (and believing/unbelieving in God) and the clergy (because there's a lot of them in my family) and this one was just great. It's a nice long meandering tale towards a pretty horrible climax/ending and the focus on family was lovely too. I was also extra into it because I had been rewatching Gravity Falls recently and things like dimensional travel/exploration creep me out a lot so all the weirdness revealed really kind of scared me lmao. But in a great way. ♥
velshtein: (FORD what the fuck)
Oh my god my period was being like weird and almost non-existant last week (when it's usually just a super quick three days tops) and then now this week it's been super heavy what the fuck why am I still on my period I'm so mad.

and fun

Life is Strange is a beautiful fucking story and I can't wait for the last episode. spoilers )

Tales from the Borderlands episode 4 was fantastic lmao. spoilers )

Final Fantasy: Type 0 WAS SO FUN. I'm really not into FF games, though I do try a lot of them out, but this was just great. The combat is so fucking fun and I love having such a huge party to play with (with all sorts of different fighting styles). The story is decent and I love Ace to pieces. Throwing cards at people has never been so fun.

Went to see Mad Max: Fury Road today! The visuals and action were AMAZING and everything looked spectacular. Furiosa is perfect and I fucking loved her to death. ♥♥♥ And lmao I cried a few times too. The story made me a bit emotional and I just adored all the ladies so much.

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 4:

Daisuke Namikawa sounds GREAT as Narsus. ♥ And ugh Arslan is so cute.


Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works episode 16:

Awww all the Kiritsugu flashbacks kill my heart to pieces. ;;;;; Lmao I constantly forget that Lancer exists and am a little surprised every time I see him.

Kekkai Sensen episode 2:

I LOVE this show a lot. I love all the little bits of worldbuilding introduced every episode and vampires the jazzy atmosphere/music and the characters are cute and the battles are fun to watch. Fun.

Seraph of the End episode 4:

After three episodes of hearing him, I've decided that Yuichi Nakamura is utterly perfect as Guren and I love him a lot. The record player was a nice addition to the office scene too and I really love how the weapon demon effects are being animated.
velshtein: (YU cry)
Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine episode 2:

Aww I feel bad for her. AND OH GOD THAT ENDING. Shocking stuff.

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works episode 15:

ILLYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; All the flashback stuff ripped my heart to shreds especially with "Iri" talking to her and Illya waiting for KIRITSUGU TO COME BACK HOME WHICH REMINDED ME OF HOW KIRITSUGU SAID THAT HE KEPT TRYING TO GET BACK HOME AND COULDN'T AND EVENTUALLY HAD TO GIVE UP OH GOD. ;;;;;;;;;; God damn I do love watching Gilgamesh fight though. Which is just him spamming everyone with all the shit he has lmao. Tomokazu Seki is PERFECTION with that supremely haughty voice. ♥

Seraph of the End episode 3:

Shinoa is cute cute cute. And it looks like we'll be getting through two chapters next week, instead of the 1:1 chapter:episode ratio of the first three. Neato.
velshtein: (GUREN whining)
Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine episode 1:

AAAAAAAAH I'VE MISSED THIS SHOW SO MUCH. It's so good. I LOVED the horror-esque parts of this episode so much. Well the series as a whole is pretty horrifying but the stuff in the first half of the episode was extra great. Izana and Tanikaze are adorable as usual AND OMG THAT ENDING.
