Heyo! I'm not dead yet!

Ahem. First up, the live-action Rurouni Kenshin film!

- Teaser trailer

- First trailer (Although part of the translation leaves a bit to desire, like the "beware the calm ones". Better would've been "Beware the Quiet Ones").

- Second trailer

- 1-minute commercial

Fangirl mode! Which has me working on my RuroKen collection after very little activity. XD My poor wallet... Two additional sets of manga just because of different covers, 1 set with extra material. And that's not including the various figures of Kenshin/Battousai I've picked up recently from this year's Anime Expo... NO REGRETS! (And in all honesty, I'm buying them at a slightly better price compared to if I had bought them online, be it eBay or a net store - most of the vendors weren't charging tax at AX, so that's a bonus.)

That aside, San Diego Comic-Con!

Want a vacation

Well, I AM planning a small one come summer, BUT considering I'm more technically covering San Diego Comic-Con for the Allspark... Maybe not so much of a vacation. On the other hand, after uploading the pics/reporting, I am free to browse about the halls and DT San Diego. Provided I don't get trampled over.

Well, that, and maybe Anime Expo, as I base my attendance primarily on the guest list. If it's someone who has worked on a series that I'm a big fan of, I'm more than likely to attend it.

Who knew paper-pushing can be so exhaustive.

lonegamer78: (Transformers G1 Optimus Prime)
Yeah, to the tune of THIS.

Really, work was CRAZY today at the office. Well, crazy for me, but probably a bit shocking to my senior coworkers, especially with how forceful the doors got slammed multiple times. I'm just glad that it's Friday, so our poor boss could get a bit of R&R.
lonegamer78: (Transformers G1 Bluestreak)
Moving on to the brighter side of life *hears a couple whistling*, Happy Winter-based Holidays to all of you! :D Yeah, "Winter-based Holidays". XD So, go easy on spiking that eggnog, don't tamper the turkey/duck/ham/what-have-you-protein-based-centerpiece, try to keep the fingers out of the dessert until it's time, and...

PLEASE, do NOT drink AND drive. Or even drive after having several drinks. If you gotta get home, get a designated driver, m'kay? It'll be better for EVERYONE. *hic*

Considering the bruhaha Livejournal is going through at the moment, I felt it was prudent to move to Dreamwidth.

Granted, I don't update my LJ all that often, but it's still nice to have a spare account if I want to vent without having to look at the fugliness.

If anyone else is moving over to Dreamwdith, I'd be more than happy to re-add you back to my Friends (or the method used by DW).

Peace out!

I want to sleeeep.

Wow, almost two months. XD Lessee...

San Diego Comic-Con 2011

Surprisingly, I wasn't as burned out as from last year's marathon driving (despite having to do commute again), but con fatigue was still unavoidable. I'm just glad I didn't crashed into anything or anyone. (Although saying that, I probably jinxed myself for next year's SDCC...) Pretty much worked my keister off covering for the Allspark, live net and video, as well trying to pick up some con exclusives for a couple of pals (sadly, I missed out on the majority of them due to the really, really, really long lines). That was work (well, I AM covering for the Allspark! :3), but I was able to have some of my own fun that wasn't Transformers related, like attending the Marvel vs. Capcom panel. Speaking of net coverage, I was able to work something out with the staff at the Allspark, picking up a wireless adapter that worked quite well so it was much better than last year's coverage. For SDCC 2012, I'm hoping to get lucky on having a place to stay down there, at least split the cost with someone else. If not, so as long I'm able to attend, I'll probably survive the commute. << >>


I am now working as an office assistant at a law office! It's a bit small, there's always a mountain of paperwork, I keep making mistakes, I keep bugging my senior coworkers, and I'm enjoying it. XD Truthfully, it's pretty nice. I'm actually learning a bit on how things work in the legal system when it comes to workers compensation (other than it moves really slow), even though I occasionally build up a tiny backlog of paperwork to sort through. Dealing with clients? Being the new kid, the majority of them on the phone are rather understanding. (I do, however, have to hand over the calls over to the more experienced coworkers that know their cases - I just shuffle the paperwork). Now, I'm just saving up to be able to hopefully pay off a couple things as well FINALLY get a few pieces of equipment that I've been hoping for.

General updates

Lookie, back again! :B Or not...

Still job hunting, two interviews down, and I'm still biting my nails on them as I felt I kinda screwed up a bit during the interview, so it's up in the air whether I'll actually get into either positions. *crosses fingers*

My other worry is gearing up for San Diego Comic-Con. I REALLY need a decent wireless network adapter, but sadly the ones my dad used have expired on their contract, and I'm barely scraping enough leftovers. Wi-Fi in SDCC is laughably weak, even with adapters, much less the notebook's own Wi-Fi. Times like this, I really wish my cell phone is an Android or at least able to hop onto the net. "Radio Shack dinosaur Radio", to quote Epps from the first TF film. So ghetto...

I should update this more often... XD

Bah. Nothing much really. Still job hunting (sent off a couple applications), and now gearing up for BotCon coverage. I'm wishing I could remember where I put one of my memory cards, but 32 gigs is probably more than enough on photos and videos. Next thing is wishing on San Diego Comic-Con, and I"m not even sure I can make it this year... *sighs about gas prices and poor car*

Fan side, I've been floating about Devil May Cry. Granted, I haven't quite played any of the games entirely through (it's on my bucket list), though YouTube walkthrough vids has more than enough educated me. << >> As well having picked up several artbooks, the novels and manga in both English and Japanese. (Hey! It's a bit healthier than crack! And they're my anti-drug!)

Why, yes! I tend to fluctuate on my fandoms! Why do you ask? I like to think of it expanding my diversity of things I'm interested in! ;P

FMA/KH - Umbra

Friday, April 1st, 2011 12:02 am
lonegamer78: (Henkei Nightmare Optimus TF)
Series: Fullmetal Alchemist/Kingdom Hearts
Title: "Umbra"
Character(s): Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, assorted
Rating: G
Disclaimers: "FMA" belongs to Hiromu Arakawa and Square-Enix; Kingdom Hearts belongs to Square and Disney
Note: Follows up "Rubedo Remiges". Umbra is Latin for "shadow" or "shade", the root word for "umbrella". In Japan, it's considered to be a bit romantic if a guy and a girl are sharing an umbrella, moreso if they're going out. I've been DYING to write up someone using a wing as a form of umbrella. Of course, that sort of limb manipulation isn't without penalties. :D

For once, she didn't mind the wet weather. )
lonegamer78: (Henkei TF Optimus Revenge)
Series: Fullmetal Alchemist/Kingdom Hearts
Title: "Rubedo Remiges"
Character(s): Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, assorted
Rating: G
Disclaimers: "FMA" belongs to Hiromu Arakawa and Square-Enix; Kingdom Hearts belongs to Square and Disney
Note: Ed being the major in charge of the Department of Alchemical Abuse and Exploitation is from .Poisoned Scarlet.'s "Draped in Wires". Regarding Zack, it's a bit of AU from Birth By Sleep, as I'm a bit of a Zack/Aerith diehard fan.

"Rubedo" may sound familiar to those that have played the Xenosaga series, but it's used in relation to alchemy - Latin for "redness", and the final stage of the "alchemical opus" after nigredo, albedo, and citrinitas, in that order. Remiges are the flight feathers found on the wings of birds.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] fma_fic_contest prompt 106 "Crossovers".

The assumption that darkness and light cannot be truly understood is true. The assumption that it can't be incorporated with alchemy is false. )

Best 3-minute video. EVER.

FMA - Brother Found

Thursday, January 13th, 2011 01:03 pm

Series: Fullmetal Alchemist
Title: "Brother Found"
Character(s): Roy Mustang, Ling Yao
Rating: G
Disclaimers: "FMA" belongs to Hiromu Arakawa and Square-Enix.
Note: Some spoilers, post manga. AU-ish. I know that Roy's biological father is Madame Christmas's brother canon-wise, but [livejournal.com profile] randomcheeses 's "Restitution" has influenced me. Huǒlóng 火龍 is literally "fire dragon".

Written for [livejournal.com profile] fma_fic_contest prompt 95 "Family".

The Philosopher's Stone wasn't the only thing Ling found. )

Wish I could drink, but since I'm recovering from a bug, I'm not going to.

Whatever. Healthier for me, at least. I don't really care for alcohol consumption, anyway...

Happy New Year from the past, people! :D

FMA - Endo, Exo

Character(s): Roy Mustang,Ling Yao, mentions of Riza Hawkeye and Lan Fan
Rating: G
Disclaimers: "FMA" belongs to Hiromu Arakawa and Square-Enix. I just play in the sandbox.
Note: Post manga. Too much listening to "FMA: Brotherhood"'s 5th opening as inspiration, "Rain" by Sid.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] fma_fic_contest prompt 92 "Flame".

Endothermic: "within-heating"; exothermic: "outside heating". Roy learns to perform both. )

Package update

Okay, not so much tampered, but it most likely broke open at one of the processing centers on this side of the Pacific and my stuff got mixed up, so the folks there just stuffed whatever was nearby into my box, mixing things up. Boooo, hiss. >:|

One bright side, my sis found one photo of the owner wearing her high school T-shirt in the album, which was mercifully a 30-40 minute drive from where I lived. One of counselors recognized the owner and knew her mom, so I left it in the counselor's hands to take care from there. That's one load off my back! Next is tracking down the owner of the books, but that'll also be up to the stores - Borders is easy; the Chinese books, not so easy.

I am still cranky about the whole mess, though...
