  • Do you ever get tired of all the conflict in things? Movies, TV, video games, etc. Lots of people think it's not even possible to write plot that has no driving conflict. Though I've also read articles about writing that claim it's possible, but examples are really on the fringe.

    Though...I think I'm really just tired of conflict in general. Whether weekday or weekend, internal or external, I feel like I'm always struggling against something. And...it just got really old a long time ago.

    Sorry... It's just been a great and really relaxing weekend, and I'm not looking forward to tomorrow and having some of the same stuff start up all over again. And as I ponder which anime/TV/video game to use to indulge in some escapism, I'm hard-pressed to come up with one that can easily deliver me to the idyllic anime beach-scene-with-friends trope.

    Though...I do think there's something wrong with how struggling seems to be ingrained in/permeates everything, and it's just accepted that this is how things are. Whether there's something wrong with the world, or the way the people who live there think, I'm not sure--probably both.

    ^^^^ THIS (and in my country we'Re ALWAYS guilty of it... Like ok, some in comedies can be alright 3 sec, but when you overabuse it to make it be like ~~~ realistic~~~ well sorry, but nope, there are still people that are balanced enough to not spend their whole time shouting and being utterly agressive and hostile to any living being -and even objects- , so yeah, sorry but copying Kaamelot isn't originality guys ; moreover sorry but with the current on-going pandemic and current stress, sorry but I want to laugh, get positive vibes, not having stupid, hurtful and traumatic quarrels we have enough of this IRL and on the Web, and yet it's coming from somebody who's justly into Kaamelot and police/detective movies)

    Probably the best feel-good, slice-of-life anime I've seen (and I've seen hundreds) is Non Non Biyori.
    Watch this clip and it will tell you if you'll like it; it's the clip I randomly saw that made me go watch it:

    It's been a good weekend. I spent the last few days outside in reasonably warm weather, wearing my Miku hat and sipping from my Miku cup, studying music stuff. Life is good.
    My bird has incredible ears. How do I know? After absentmindedly humming Senbonzakura while going about other business, I noticed him chattering up a storm in response from elsewhere in the house. :miku_ani_lili:
    You know, I love Amazon, but I feel like for some stuff you really have to be careful about what you buy. It's all the folks who jump on there and make knock-off stuff. Cell phone peripherals? Do your best to make sure they come from the manufacturer, or at least from someone reputable. OTC drugs? Make sure you're not getting sugar-coated dog dander or something. How many times have I seen reviews that proclaim, "This is not the real thing!"? Really, how pathetic is it to be the person making money off of selling fake mouthwash? I mean, is that something you can stand up among your underworld buddies and be proud of?
    As I work on songs, I often save them with sequential version numbers in case whatever happens. I'm currently on version...16.

    Do you think I make myself too many savepoints? XD :)
    I rewatched Magical Mirai 2015 this morning on Blu-ray. It's one of my favorite concerts now. Kaito does "Snowman;" Meiko does "Nostalogic;" Luka does "Just Be Friends;" Rin and Len do "Remote Controller;" Miku does "Sweet Devil" and "Cat Food," and closes the show by singing "Hajimete no Oto"...with the entire audience of Makuhari Messe singing along :kaito_lili:.

    I watched it just last weekend (and Mirai 2016 Blu-ray yesterday). (Btw, 2015 was Nippon Budoukan, Makuhari Messe first hosted Magical Mirai in 2016)

    Oh, cool, didn't know that--I'd thought Makuhari had always hosted the concert in Tokyo!

    Mirai 2016's a lot of fun, too--it's probably my favorite, though there are several of them that are just amazing. 2015 among them :) .
    There are people from multiple major cities celebrating in the streets here in the US. The police are there, like they'd always be, but just looking at both sides, there's no hint of any desire for violence on either side. I've heard they're ringing bells in Paris, and really nice messages are coming in from other world leaders, too. This is the happiest thing I've seen on TV in years.

    Thank you to everyone who voted, and thank you to everyone who has been patient with us during this gigantic nightmare.
    I've heard (from anime, and somewhere else that I can't remember) that in Japan there's a practice where some people like to put mayonnaise on pizza. One of these days when no one's judging, I really want to give that a try, because it seems like it would be, if not awesome in a very-bad-for-you way, at least very interesting. I wonder if it works best with specific kinds of pizza (Like, does it have to be some kind of seafood pizza that would be more likely to be served there?), or would any kind of pizza work...?

    Usually the fancy pizza I eat is pineapple pizaa (YES I love it as much as classic like margherita !!!) and when I read hat i was like "what ? õ_õ " but now with seafood and corn in mind it'd be logical

    Mm, I'm definitely going to have to give this a try. It might take a little work in one way or another, but I'm really curious now. Between allergies and simple preference, I'm not much of a seafood person, but I have this hunch that mayo would taste good on a particular variety of frozen pizza....

    @Mika: From what I've seen online, Japanese mayo is "tangier" than other mayo.

    @MillyAqualine: I like pineapple pizza, too! I usually pair it with other out-of-the-norm toppings, like chicken, but pineapple is a perfectly respectable pizza topping IMO. Surprisingly, Margherita pizza isn't my favorite, though--though that could be because I get it frozen and it just doesn't come out well. While it's hot, it can be good, but especially once it gets cold and turns soggy...it loses a lot.... I suppose if I did it right and got it from a specialty pizza place, though, it might be a lot better. Having been able to get pizza from an Italian place (I think?) a few times, it's hard to beat a native place where pizza is its business. :) Though Italian pizza is supposedly a lot different (simpler) than what Americans do with it, so I imagine what I got was Americanized....
    It's late to be saying this, but Election Day in the United States is on Tuesday. If you're able to vote and weren't planning to, please consider casting a ballot. At least one thing you sort of see all over is true: this is hopefully the most important electoral decision we'll ever make. It's really important that everyone gets their say in.
    Just a PSA to be careful when online/checking email. I've gotten a bunch of spam phone calls and one suspicious email, and someone I know got a virus. So avoid going to shady places, and if you get a communication/popup from someone/something you don't know or that you didn't ask for, be suspicious.
    I've been increasingly restless since yesterday. I've got other stuff I am/should be doing, but all I really want to do is music research or take my best shot in Studio One.
    Hard to beat the excitement of a countdown before Miku comes on!
