I'm really not religious in the slightest (even with my own chosen flavor of religion, I'm pretty much a "oh it's the solstice, I s'pose I oughta do Something" kinda person), but my mom linked to this and it cracked me up. My favorite part is the Three Wise Men on Twitter and Amazon. XD



No fighting in the comments, it's the holiday season.

Lady GaGa's "Bad Romance" set to some drama-tastic elves from Warcraft. Really well made! But possible not safe for work, due to "mature situations".



Also, BIGBANG and 2NE1's "Lollipop", again with elves. Blood elves, but still elves. (Warning: the song is an insanely catchy K-Pop song that will take over your brain. I am addicted to this song. It's sad.)



I thought [livejournal.com profile] smudge_dragon in particular would like all the elves. ^_^

This is mostly being posted for the benefit of [livejournal.com profile] denshousha, so we can get the SAAS meeting planned for this month. But hey, I thought other people might want to see these rare clips also. Watch and enjoy, opening credits for almost all the magical girl anime shows since 1966, in order by year. In the cut, because the list is HUGE.

Read more... )

I lean towards liking the stuff from the mid-1990's and earlier when it comes to magical girl shows, but I'm always pleased when I find something newer that's good. Princess Tutu is delightfully surreal and pretty, and no wonder I like it since it's by the guy who made Ojamajo Doremi which I also love. I'm a fan of the Sugar Sugar Rune manga, so will likely try the anime also. Bewitched Agnes sounds completely bonkers (wiki link), and gives nods in the title to the show that started the whole magical girl craze in Japan in the first place: Bewitched. Yes, the Elizabeth Montgomery show! We can blame the magical girlfriend genre of anime on the other American export: I Dream of Jeannie. But that's a whole other post!

Yeah, I can't get into the Twilight series, and I am not going to see New Moon. I do love this Buffy vs. Edward remix though.

Why can't I get into it? Mainly because the main female protagonist is utterly useless, passive and reinforces strictly coded gender stereotypes. And? A guy who stalks you and who wants to control you is not sexy; it's hella creepy. I also like plot in my books.

I've got nothing against romance, drama, angst and fantasy- I love those things, actually. But I want characters with three dimensions and complexity, and I want plots that go somewhere. And, I want strong female characters who maybe sometimes make good decisions, maybe sometimes make bad ones, because that's what life is like sometimes. But at least they MAKE decisions and DO THINGS, instead of being passive and defined by their male love interests. That this series is so incredibly popular with teenage girls worries and disturbs me a little, because I think Bella is a horrible role model.

Again, if you need to be reminded, The Sparkledammerung by Stoney breaks down all four books, so you don't have to read them. Don't drink something while reading that, it's not safe.

Now on to work, where we are receiving lots of calls about Twilight merch that isn't out yet.

You don't have truth in advertising laws like we do, you really don't...

This may not be safe for work, depending where you work. But it is HILARIOUS.



One, I can't stop laughing at the fact the device is called God's Hand, and two, I can't stop laughing every time the bosoms magically grow. Three, I can't stop laughing at the fact that all these high powered supposedly classy women are running around in tops that show their bras for all to see; dudes aren't checking out their boobage, they are stunned that these women are showing off their lingerie like Girls Gone Wild.

Have a Warcraft version of Shriekback's "Nemesis"!



This made me laugh also, because the video maker obviously misheard the one line as "priests and cannibals, retarded animals" just like I used to. XD

EDIT: Yay, Oingo Boingo!

New York, London, Paris, Munich, everybody talk about Pop Musik.

Also, a happy Father's Day to all the other dads I know out there. ^_^

Happy St. Pat's, y'all. I'll be working, so no green-beer-swilling partying for me. Not that I could swill green beer anyway, but you know what I mean!

Everything old is new again, even in Japan. ^_^

Pink Lady performs "Pepper Keibu" (their first hit) in 1977:


Morning Musume perform "Pepper Keibu" in 2008:


I like how they even do the same dance moves. It's like you can't mess with the Pink Lady dance moves when you do one of their songs; they're sacred moves!

EDIT: Also, apparently, doing Pink Lady drag shows is a very popular thing in Japan. I've stumbled across a bunch of videos of guys dressed as Pink Lady doing the dances absolutely perfectly. I am extremely amused by this!
