A break

I’m on my lunch break at work currently and I figured I’d spend time updating this often neglected and badly written blog. Ironic that the my fellow bloggers are the better at writing than me… but they are so silent here… ha!

This Friday, I am going to see GLAY for the 2nd time at the House of Blues on Sunset! At my younger years, while my peers were listening to N’Sync, I was throwing my fangirl energy towards this Japanese band. I can say that my love for this band directed me to many of my interest these days- namely a great interest in Japanese fashion. I did, at one point, wanted to become just like the band’s guitarist, Hisashi!

These days, I hardly follow the band’s new projects but I still feel a strong connection with the songs and music videos I “grew up” with.

They already played their first concert in San Francisco and a fan kindly wrote up their set list. I am SO excited that they will be playing ‘SURVIVAL’, in particular. They didn’t play this at the last concert and I was slightly disappointed. Now, I will finally get to enjoy this song LIVE and I could not be more happy!!!

Otherwise, I am busy getting Halloween costumes done for myself and two other people. Also, I’m trying to figure out the best way to embed twitter on this blog’s side bar! I might be due for another website redesign…! I need to find time to learn CSS coding. I feel like I’ve reached the limit of what can be done with HTML some times.

Avatarding: Response

I would probably say that I am an Avatard. I own a stuffed Appa that I bought on Ebay for far too much money. I also have action figures. What can I say, I’m easily swayed by toys.

I too saw the season 3 trailer. What I’m wondering is: How can they stretch this beyond 4 seasons? Will they have the guts to end it, or cash in on the success?

As awesome as season 3 looks, I see already we are nearing the end. I knew going in that there probably wouldn’t be more than 4 (since we’ve only got 4 elements covered). But it’s been such a success, I could see Nickelodeon forcing them to continue, which, in my opinion, is bad.

As much as I love the show, I don’t want it to become like SO many anime shows where there are like 70 episodes of filler and 30 of plot. I’m tired of seeing TV shows last long after their prime just to make a little more money.

That said, I can’t WAIT for season 3. I want to see Toph and Katara kick major ass.

Avatarding.

I refuse to admit that I am an Avatard.
I enjoy the show.
I really like it.
I do!

I’ll admit that I’m an anime nerd and all kinds of other embarassing things, but I just can’t fall into the Avatarding.

With THAT said, let’s talk about Avatar: The Last Airbender upcoming new season, shan’t we?? As usualy, I’m behind the whole entire world and only got around to watch the season 3 trailer that someone filmed during the Comic-con panel. I have to admit, I got a little pitter-patter in my heart over it… ESPECIALLY since it seems like it’s a season full of awesome action. I’m a sucker for good action stuff.

I am also amused by the indications of time passing by all the hair-changing that our main characters has gone through. Namely, Aang’s hair and Zuko’s flowing locks, so it seems. No doubt the fangirls are going to trip all over themselves over him even more. Including me, I’m thinking (YEAH-YAH BABY! PRINCE of EMO WITH LONG LOCKS GO GO GO!) Though Sokka’s still my man! He’s a little charmer!

The fanboys are also gonna get some eye-candy with Katara running around in tiny pieces of white cloth. I think everyone wins in this season!

I don’t pay much attention to the Avatards and the fandom, so everything that this new season will bring are gonna be plenty of surprises for me. Good surprises, I’m hoping.
