I walked all morning to lift my heart  
1) In the spirit of renewed lj posting, I've been thinking I should do a little series of posts related to the dramas I have been watching/recently finished lately! (The only problem is I usually either want to make a giant pimp post of my love or have nothing to contribute but keysmashing so who knows what will win out! [People who know me might have some guesses. ;)]) Like all series of mine, it will probably not be done in a very timely manner but I thought posting about it might help. :)

2) ...Welcome, "new" friends from the jdrama friending meme! We are really getting off on the honest about my posting tendencies right foot! :)

3) Happy Birthday to Me! I say this not to troll for congratulations but to give ambitious people who keep track of these things a place to say hi. ♥ Plus, it would be a little weird to post and not mention it. XD And also, Happy Belated Birthday to Yoko! I decided long ago that I had too many birthday posts just trying to do all of Arashi this year but Yoko came SO SO close to making me reverse that position. I just adore that kid and could talk about him for a while if I got started. YOKO. ♥

4) A poll! I've been toiling in my usual pattern, which is to finish about 70-90% of project and then move onto the next one without completing it. So, I thought I'd throw out just the drama icons I've worked on and see if anyone had thoughts about what they'd like to see:

I should make the last push and complete ___ next.

Spring Waltz! (A have a million bases made and even some completely finished!)
0(0.0%)
JIN! (Oh god, so many bases! So many almost done! How have I never posted these...)
3(42.9%)
Brilliant Legacy! (I actually would like to icon more of this show but I didn't take any caps except for the last episode. :( )
0(0.0%)
Yamanade! (Not actually many are in progress but why else did you cap so much of this! XD)
0(0.0%)
Liar Game! (Only a couple, I didn't feel like I really needed a Liar Game but they are just so pretty. And so easy to mock. XD)
0(0.0%)
Proposal Daisakusen! (Only a couple, though I adored this show and would want to work on a lot more before posting.)
0(0.0%)
Nobuta! (Woooow, I forgot these existed but a few of them are pretty cute. :) )
3(42.9%)
My Girl (Korea)! (Really, really old but there's a couple here I should go back and salvage so I'm including it too.)
1(14.3%)


Although I make no guarantee I will actually finish those next, as they are all in various states, it might be good motivation! There's also two projects (one of which is not at all Asian, gasp!) that I didn't put on this list that I am absolutely determined to finish in the next week or two. Hopefully all this ambition will not vanish like smoke. :DD

Good talk, guys, good talk.

*throws hands in air* HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Eat lots of cake!

Also, I want ProDai icons, too, but i had to make a choice.

Aw, thanks bb! I did. There was much chocolate cake and also sushi, my day was complete right there. :)

Ahahaha, I will gladly take both choices into consideration, this was mostly just an attempt to get myself to focus on one for now.

I really want to write about ProDai but that's definitely another show where my first instinct is to have to make a huge pimp post that will take a lot of time. Or just post a cap of Yamapi with the caption of "You see! This is the brilliance of the show. Always keep them running." We'lllll seeeeeee. :D

Icon-wise... whatever you are most likely actually to post.

Happy birthday, your face! You have been stubbornly not online while I've been around, jerk. You are old! But also much-loved. ♥

I'm betting I will post somewhere between ALL OF THEM!!!1!!!ELEVEN and ...none of them, don't look at me. XD I'm hoping having people click radio buttons will give me just one thing to focus on... except, y'know, my two other things and sparklehole and...

My face makes an appearance! In more ways than one. :) And I have only been told that I'm a quarter century old twice today. Ahahaha *cries and reaches for more cake*

YOU ARE TOO SWEET. YOU ARE SO SWEET, I WILL HAVE TO COMMENT ABOUT IT IN TWO PLACES! Thank you very much, bb. ♥

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)

Drama icons. *_____* All of them sound pretty awesome so I don't know which one to pick. But I'm leaning towards Yamanade because there are so many fabulous expressions in that drama, haha.
Top: 嵐: Fuck you Ninotopazera on May 11th, 2010 05:02 am (UTC)
Thank you! It was a good one! :D

Ahahaha, that's my problem! I don't know what show I want to icon since I always wind up falling in love with another one before I even finish capping.

LOL, my icons of Yamanade would be like, five of Sunako being pretty/creepy, one million shippy ones, a few of Tegoshi unhinging his jaw and flaring his nostrils and one of Kato Seishiro-kun. What I'm saying is: I totally will not accurately represent that drama. XD

Happy belated birthday! <3
And welcome back to livejournal!It's been long since you've post(:

Oooh, drama icons. Would love to see those.(:

Ah, sorry for neglecting this so long but thank you for the warm wishes and welcome! I'm happy to be back and hopefully it will stick this time. :)

I have a feeling it will take me a while but I'll try to keep moving through them! And maybe put up more polls for input! :D

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY (BELATED) BIRTHDAY!!!!!<3<3<3!!!

So! Since last year for your bday I made you a fanmix I will offer to do it again this year! Traditions! Give me a character/couple/show and I will whip up an over-thought-out fanmix for you! <3

PS: POST ALL THE ICONS. Also how hilarious was Liar Game? I could not keep a straight face throughout most of that show.

PPS: You have to finish the rest of your Hanson posts!
Top: HYD: Those crazy kidstopazera on May 22nd, 2010 11:54 am (UTC)
THANK YOU BELATEDLY FOR YOU BELATED WISHES! :DD

Aw! What, you are too sweet! That was already, like, my favorite internet-gift ever! WELL, SINCE YOU SAID SO: 1) If you have enough thoughts, I just caught up with Doctor Who and um, we've never discussed it but Amy/Eleven gives me a lot of ~feelings~. No matter how cool they make Rory, I will still have ~feelings~, sorry guys. Plus I totally do not associate with the general fandom so I love when things appear on my flist. XD or 2) I am another person who does not hate S3 GG so we could totally utilize this and you could make a S3 GG mix if you're inspired! I will accept Blair/Chuck, Serena/Nate (omg PUPPIES! I was one MILLION percent won over by them dating. I have never been so behind a relationship for either of them. :D Um, more please, S4?), NJBC or all three combined. XD I WOULD BE THRILLED TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS-IN-THE-FORM-OF-MUSIC ON EITHER OF THESE TOPICS, GO!

P.S. - ALL OF THE ABOVE WAS LEFT OFF AS AN OPTION. :P By votes I should post about Spring Waltz next but maybe I will post my meager Liar Game icons because, who I am kidding, I can never resist going for THE LULZ. From the very first episode of that show, my face was set on OMG WHAT IS THIS AND HOW DOES IT EXIST. :D

P.P.S: Sloooooowly but surely on it! I overestimated my posting ability. But we're about to get to the point in the story where I mention HAN BAT! :DDD

You're belatedly welcome!

Aw! What, you are too sweet! That was already, like, my favorite internet-gift ever!

Aww thanks so much bb! I was actually listening to the Makino/Domyouji mix and your Sawyer/Juliet mix the other day because I feel they're both so summery and also OMGWTFPOLARBEARLOST!

Doctor Who! I have many, many feelings about Eleven/Amy and how they're like the new Doctor/Rose for me and how I want them to make out and be adorable together. Also doesn't help that Matt Smith and Karen Gillian are totally the cutest and make me one of those creeper RL shippers. Sadly I only have a few songs that fit them (although many FEELINGS!) but we will have to talk about Doctor Who soon!

YAY! I'm so happy you liked s3 of GG too. I think that makes like....two of us? WHATEVER GG FANDOM. Shut your mouths. (I have so much increasing hate, not for GG, but for the fandom. OMG shut uppppp fandom! You are ruining everything fun about this show with your whining.)

But I do actually have a whole notepad file called FANMIX IDEAS and they are almost entirely of the Gossip Girl variety. So expect a Chuck/Blair fanmix within the next couple days. I've had most of the mix sitting on my computer for months now but you finally motivated me to put it together and make coverart so thanks! I'll link you when I post it! I hope you'll like it. I just have to figure out song order (which is way harder than I thought it would be? Fanmixology is complicated business!)

PS: LIAR GAME! I loved all the over the top acting and the direction was actually ridic with all the overly dramatic cuts and nonsense. That show was a constant state of lulz.

PPS: HAN BAT! You need to come up for lunch again soon. <3

Doctor Who! I have many, many feelings about Eleven/Amy and how they're like the new Doctor/Rose for me and how I want them to make out and be adorable together.
Tooootally. And it's been good to get a clean break from Doctor/Rose, as much as I loved them, since it caused so much angst! Um, I don't know if they'd be pleased to hear it, but I think of Eleven as someone different, someone who didn't live through all that most of the time. XD

Also doesn't help that Matt Smith and Karen Gillian are totally the cutest and make me one of those creeper RL shippers.
Hahaha, I know, I watched so many behind the scenes vids on YouTube one night. It's not our fault they seem to entertain each other by flirting all the time. So far I'm theorizing Matt Smith's crush on Karen Gillan: TRUE.

(I have so much increasing hate, not for GG, but for the fandom. OMG shut uppppp fandom! You are ruining everything fun about this show with your whining.)
Fandom is either all about the GLEE or all about the WHINE and GG fandom has been tilting one way for a long while!

Fanmixology is complicated business!
I'm psyched for your finished product, whenever it materializes. Mull away! :D

Re: PPS - YES, AGREED. Oh oh AND guess what? I got tickets to the Brooklyn Stars concert! Of course, like an idiot, I waited until they were sold out to look for them earlier in the month. But I've been checking StubHub and caught a good deal, so yessssss, I am going. Are you doing both shows like you were considering? :D

Anyway, we should definitely meet up that day! (Especially since I don't know where this is in Brooklyn. XD) If you don't have other plans, we should totally get dinner before the show. :)

Agreed! I actually thought that the End of Time was a nice way to leave off RTD's story and with it the Doctor/Rose stuff. Plus it's easier for me to let it go for some reason knowing Rose is out there with her own Tennant having fun adventures. :) I totally think of Eleven as his own guy too though! I guess it's because the tone of the show just feels different?

I'm psyched for your finished product, whenever it materializes. Mull away! :D

IT'S HERE!!! Hope you like it bb! Blair/Chuck mix timeeeee!

Oh oh AND guess what? I got tickets to the Brooklyn Stars concert!

YAY!!!! That's awesome! That's the one I got tickets too! I was considering doing either the one or Thursday or the one on Saturday also but I never ended up getting tickets so I think I'll just be doing the Friday one. Which is fine because STARS! I'm so excited!

Anyway, we should definitely meet up that day! (Especially since I don't know where this is in Brooklyn. XD) If you don't have other plans, we should totally get dinner before the show. :)

Awesome! We def will have to meet up (even though I also don't know where in Brooklyn this is. I haven't spent much time over there.) My friend is coming into the city to go with me so possibly we could all meet up around Port Authority and get food or all head over to Brooklyn and look for something there? IDK! I'll email you when I know what time my friend is getting to the city! EXCITING!

Ahahaha, whoops, maybe I should actually go watch that? Rose was in it? I left off at "Journey's End" and then never saw any of the specials. I got pulled back into Who with the excitement over Eleven but at that point I didn't think I'd want to watch any of the fun new stuff if I went back to TEARS first. :)

IT'S HERE!!! Hope you like it bb! Blair/Chuck mix timeeeee!
EEEEEEEE! OMG, sorry, I should have left a flail-y comment when I first encountered it but I've been waiting to listen and leave a good comment! I SHOULD BE DOING BOTH. XD

I'll email you when I know what time my friend is getting to the city! EXCITING!
STARS! YES! I'm glad we're going to the same show still! :DD Yeah, just e-mail me when you have further details! I'll probably be able to come into the city early tomorrow to avoid rush hour, so I will be there. :)

Also, I totally hope it's an easy place to travel to in Brooklyn becuse, um, I'm still going to have to make it back to NJ after the show? XD Fingers crossed it doesn't end too late, much as I love them, cause I'm going to need to catch a bus! :D
