stuff, stuff, and more stuff

lessee, the last few days....

Performed in the Rite of Sol on Saturday - or more precisely, Jesus Christ SuperSol. Seems to have gone off well :) Now if I could just get the music out of my head.... though actually I have yet to hear it today. The current mental soundtrack seems to be TMBG's Particle Man.

Yesterday was much temple-building. The shrine is now in the new building, and the wall-veils are starting to go up. I can't express how incredibly frickin' cool it is. @lissa(HUGE!) On the other hand, today I am sore. Must attack the hot tub later.

Andrei has managed to get me to do yet something else I swore would never happen - watching anime. Sailor Moon and Utena, to be specific. (Dear gods, what's happening to me?! First Disneyland, then avocado, now anime....)

I've started a new batch of paintings, but they're going slowly.

The new ADD medication is still being scarily effective. I wake up focused, I stay focused all day, and I fall asleep within minutes instead of an hour or two. Only downsides so far seem to be that I've been a bit on the depressed and sleepy side (odd, since this stuff is also supposed to be a bit of an antidepressant), and my mood swings have gotten worse. My guess is my brain has taken over the years to giving me huge, erratically spaced bursts of norepinephrine in an effort to get me to actually react to it, and now that I am reacting to it it will take a while for the brain to remember how to give off the lower steady stream it should be doing. Bah. Even so it's a massive improvement over the adderall.

Time to go get groceries.

In my experience, shortly after anime comes disgrace, the gutter, and the river.

But unless you end up watching old episodes of Yamato or Urusei Yatsura, and exclaiming grumpily how much better old anime is than the new stuff, you are probably safe. (I now return to the bottle, the opium pipe, and the nearest bridge with low railings)

yamato is good, but...
Personally I suggest the real classics. Battle of the Planets (Gatcheman), Speed Racer (Mach ma go go), and "My Youth in Arcadia"

Granted I ran home from school every day to see StarBlazers (Space Battle Cruiser Yamato)

That's Science Ninja Gatcheman.

Gads, haven't seen Youth In Arcadia in ages, but Cartoon Network is showing lots of Space Queen Emeraldas right now, which is a prequel.

Star Blazers was a hoot - "Destroy the enemy robot fleet" (funny, it was a manned fleet in the original) "Sven recovered from his wounds" (voice over as entire crew is facing setting sun in a formal salute...yeah, they always do that in Japanese films when someone recovers from his wounds)...tried to keep all the art but edit out all the death. I almost dropped my teeth watching Robotech (the Macross part) and when someone died in the original Harmony Gold killed them off in the Americanized series too. That was a watershed leading to getting our anime "undiluted" nowadays.

Now if Cartoon Network starts showing Legend of the Overfiend or LA Blue Girl, we will know American animation audiences have come of age...they'd better have! ;-)

You *will* prepare a list, won't you, of anime and other, ahem, pleasantries to inflict on me, er, that is, to suggest for my viewing pleasure, yeah, right, that's it, when I come out to visit you?
