post 415 ~ over the weekend…

ah, even with the extra hour over the weekend, i still felt busy or that i didn’t have enough time to do what i wanted… burning more downloads onto DVD, printing more wallpapers for my DVD-case covers, trying out my Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT, working on my “otaku merchandising” article, catching up page-by-page on my magazines, starting my letter to Anouck (afterwards, i’ll start one to Anna), even resisting the urge to cut some tiresome LJ’ers from my list… AND not only that, DAMN, tons of anime!… whether i was sampling an episode, starting or continuing a series, here are the 16 titles i was able to watch… from dramatic to humorous to mediocre:

Black Blood Brothers, Eureka Seven, Giant Robo, Gokusen, Gun Parade March, His and Her Circumstances, Ichigo Mashimaro (Strawberry Marshmallow), Jinki Extend, Kujibiki Unbalance, Le Chevalier D’Eon, NANA, Nana: Seven of Seven, Negima!? (Alternate Storytelling), Pia Carrot, Shakugan no Shana, Space Pirate Mito

meanwhile, here’s my first post for the role-playing fiction “Firefly-Class Bebop“, a multiple-writer story based on a mix of the sci-fi “Firefly” and anime “Cowboy Bebop”…

post 387 ~ bitten by the bug

post 387 ~ sorry about the silence, i think i finally succeeded!… bitten by the writer’s bug! lol…

  • in years past, i’d get inspired time and again to write fanfics for the “matrix” and “firefly”… but eventually, as series or movies ended, inspiration would wane and discouragement would grow… and moreso by the fact that these weren’t my own original universes, but someone else’s… so why finish writing?
  • well, this time in 2006, i promised to construct an entirely original universe… one day at a time, adding bits to settings, to technology, to characters, to back stories, and so on… then on saturday, when i stayed till 3am, assembling various pasts to my characters’ relationships, it finally hit me… or rather, bit me… tumultuous pasts, dimensional rotors, ferry crews, meteor catastrophes, dune buggies, and hotshot pilots… all surrounding the enigmatic name of “Rosetta”… and without the shadow of someone’s else creation!
  • haha, feeling the bug while eating, sleeping, commuting, even while working at the office (like this morning)… using all of my experience watching anime to create something new… this is how it should be, right?
