I want this game. BL game + age rating of 17 (most BL games are 18) + pretty art + Mac compatibility = happy Claire.

:: Music: AFI - 37mm


I've been meaning to muse about this for a few days, so I'll do it now, when I should be revising for my mechanics exam this afternoon.

The first time I played Decemberunderground through, I wasn't sure whether or not I liked it. Certainly, there were some good moments, but it was very different from anything of theirs I'd heard before. This was to be expected, of course, given AFI's track record, but still, DU is very far from their other records. I held my opinion back until I'd played it through a few more times, and I'm glad I did. DU gets better with each play, much like Sing the Sorrow did for me in 2003.

The standout tracks as far as I'm concerned are The Interview and 37mm, although all of the record is good. There was definitely a heavier electronic influence in DU, which is an interesting, but welcome change, and an expected one when looking at tracks like Death Of Seasons from StS. Influence from The Cure is also very noticeable in the record, particularly in some of Davey's vocals.

Overall, while it takes a little getting used to DU is an excellent album. Now if they'd hurry up and announce the dates for their European tour...

Really Long Naruto Survey

The Series/General:
1. Do you even know what Naruto is? (If you don't, just don't take this quiz.)
Nah... I'm just taking this quiz for fun (joking).

2. Do you enjoy watching it/reading it?
I stopped watching the anime when the fillers started, but I follow the manga rabidly every week.

3. Do you like shinobi?

4. Do you hate samurai?
Nah, they're awesome too.

5. How about pirates?
Also cool.

6. Who's your favorite character?

7. If you could spend one day with any character, who would it be?
Itachi. What do Akatsuki do all day anyway?

8. Which are you: a Sasuke groupie or anti-Sasuke?
Somewhere in the middle. I love the guy, but I hate him at the moment.

9. If you could be a shinobi from any village, which village would it be?

10. What would your rank be?
ANBU would be fun.

11. Do you have a crush on a character? Who and why?
No crushes, but plenty of the characters are awesome.

12. Did you cry when Haku died?
Possibly. I can't actually remember.

13. Would you steal an ANBU mask from a jounin for fun?
Sounds like a death wish, but hey, it could be amusing.

14. Are you a Sakura hater or an Ino hater?
I like them both at the moment (post-timeskip, this is) but I think I prefer Sakura. Although she has been a bit useless the last few chapters.

15. Do you think Chouji is cute?

16. Do you find any of the following boys hot?: Naruto, Sasuke, Gaara, Neji, Itachi.
They're all varying degrees of bishounen, I suppose.

17. Did you or do you believe Shikamaru is the coolest thing alive?
I do. Lazy geniuses are the best.

18. Do you love Lee?
He's a sweet character, if a little creepy.

19. How about Gai?
A lot creepy.

20. Have you ever sympathized with Hinata?
Not really. I'm shy, but in a different way.

21. Do you think Temari is the most awesome kunoichi ever?
Anko is cooler, but I still love the sand siblings.

22. Have you ever wished a minor character became a major one?

23. Have you wanted to touch the Kikai insects?
Never thought about it.

24. Do you like the Kyuubi?
He is pretty cool. And totally supports SasuNaru...

25. Shukaku?
Since he's with Gaara, I have a certain respect for him.

26. Do you think Deidara and Ino look the same?
Not really.

27. Ever wanted to touch Akamaru?
I'm not a dog person.

28. Did you ever want to poke fun at Ebisu and call him a "closet pervert?"
He was a pretty boring character, so not really.

29. Ever wondered why Kisame looks waaaaay too much like a real shark?
I don't even want to go there.

30. Do you hate Orochimaru?
I hate what he does, but he's a good villain. And I worship his seiyuu.

31. What about Kabuto?
I actually quite like the guy. Traitors are fun.

32. Have you ever wished Tsunade would get breast reduction surgery?
Are they even real?

33. You ever feel so bad for Hayate, you just want to squeeze him to death?
Aww... I wish he hadn't died, even if he was a minor character.

34. Do you think the Yondaime is hot?
Eh... he's ok, I guess.

35. Do you think he's Naruto's father?
There's certainly a resemblance. It would be very predictable, though.

36. Ever wondered what Kakashi actually looks like?

37. Name all the minor ANBU, Jounin, and Chunnin characters you can think of.
How minor is minor?
Jounin: Anko, Izumo, Hayate, Kotetsu, Baki, Kurenai, Ibiki, Shizune, Azuma
Chuunin: Iruka, Mizuki

38. Have you wondered how Jiraiya's face markings have moved down his cheeks over the years?
They have? Weird, I never noticed.

39. Does that remind you of Kiba in any way?

40. Do you like any of the Sound nin?

41. Have you wished there were more nin from the Cloud village?
No, but it would be cool to see more of the other villages.

42. What's your favorite Kekkei Genkai?
They're all good, but the Sharingan is the most interesting.

43. Have you ever pitied Naruto?
I feel sorry for Child!Naruto, but the current Naruto can take care of himself.

44. Ever think Itachi had a good reason to kill the Uchiha clan?
Probably. But will we ever find out?

45. What jutsu is your favorite?
Sabaku Sousou (Desert Coffin) - Plus most of Gaara's other jutsu.

46. Have you ever cried for Gaara? Wished he got more sleep?
Never cried for, but he does need some sleep, poor guy.

47. How much debt do you think Iruka is in after buying ramen for Naruto year after year?
A lot?

48. Do you like Naruto's frog wallet? Would you like one?
It's cute, but I wouldn't want one.

49. Have you ever made a Naruto OC?

50. If so, describe he/she, his/her abilities and their background.

51. Do you think Kurenai is an Uchiha clan poser?
No, but those red eyes are interesting.

52. Ever wanted to knock a cigarette out of Asuma's hand/mouth?

53. Did you cry when Obito died?
Not that I can recall.

54. Do you think Anko is just a female version of Naruto?
Not at all. Orochimaru's training seems to have left her a little more sinister than Naruto.

55. Did you ever wonder what it would be like if the Naruto characters lived in the present time?
I read a lot of AU fanfiction. Does that count?

56. Do you like making fun of the Naruto characters? If so, who?
I laugh at Sasuke when he gets too emo.

57. Do you want one of those bows Orochimaru and most of his slaves wear?
No. Just no. (Even Sasuke has one... how could he?)

58. Have you ever wondered why the Naruto guys DON'T kick eachother in the balls even when they have a PERFECT chance to?
No, but a few deserve it.

59. You know all those main-minor characters? Sometimes their past is NOT unveiled; have you ever wanted to know what the hell happened?
Yeah... I want to know the backgrounds to all the characters.

60. Do you hate the pairings that don't make any sense?
Yes. Espeically ItachixSakura and GaaraxSakura. I mean, come on, have they even spoken to her before? There's nothing more irritating than pairings with no canon evidence, unless it's crack, which gets let off because it's not even supposed to make sense.

I'm back.

I managed to find AFI's new album in the HMV in St Helier on the day it was released, and I love it. I'll write more about it later, when I'm not so tired. I also picked up Moonspell's new album, 'Memorial.' Two vastly different CDs. I got the digipack edition of Memorial, which was worth it for the cooler packaging and the awesome bonus track, 'Atlantic.'

I could listen to Decemberunderground online (legally) right now, but I'm not sure if I want to. I've listened to the first three tracks, which I had already heard anyway, but I'm not sure if I want to hear the rest. Well, I do, but there's nothing quite like getting a new CD and putting it in the CD player for the first time. I don't want to spoil it. I will hold out, I think, for now, and maybe the links will be gone soon and I won't have to decide.

What's wrong with you, devART?! *Kicks website.* Yesterday you kept redirecting me to the main page, and now you can't even load the pages properly.

And my shoutbox for CS is playing up again!

Stupid internet!
