uisceros: (Timey Wimey)
I watched the Paradise Kiss movie last night, and I LOOOOVED it. I plan on writing a smallish post about it, because it was adorable. For awhile there I was obsessed with the anime and manga. How could I not be? George is like, the model of the self-involved arrogant men I love in fiction (less hot in real life). And Yukari? The girl who discovered she was a kickass person who made her own success in life, but had to grow up, and give up some things in the process? That's my kind of heroine. Add in that the movie starred my Japanese soul-mate Osamu (HE'S A FUCKING SCIENTIST WHO IS BOTH OLDER AND TALLER THAN ME), and the cutest spunky girl around who likes reading and cats, Keiko. Add in the ab-tastic Mr. Yusuke, and you've got yourself a movie I wouldn't miss for the world. (I need to start watching jdramas again...)

So, probable post in the future. For now, I'll leave you with this. Bitch. Is. Flawless.



Anyway, this season in western TV! I'm currently watching;

Recurring
How I Met Your Mother - Naturally.
Gossip Girl - Addicted.
Glee - Lost it's luster a bit. I'm mostly in it for Will/Emma.
Lost Girl - I watched half of the first season, randomly stopped watching it, and picked it back up this season. I don't know...
Bones - If it EVER comes back...
Doctor Who - It's off right now, but you KNOW I'll be in it as soon as it comes back.

New
New Girl - I love Zooey, but the premise is a bit lackluster. Still, she's cute, and I like funny fluff, so whatever.
Suburgatory - Randomly got hooked on this one day. Tessa reminds me a lot of Emma Stone's character in "Easy A", which is a good thing. Plus Jeremy Sisto, Cheryl Hines (OMG WAITRESS BUDDIES, YOU GUYZ!), and Alan Tudyk... I think I'm going to keep watching. Though I know from experience, growing up in a rich suburb of a major city is NOTHING like the show portrays.
American Horror Story - I would expect nothing but the most insane shit around from the same guys who brought me Nip/Tuck (which I love, and watched until it went in the shitter). I love the dreamy, crazy-as-fuck, exploitative feel of it. Nudity and sex? SURE. Brutal killings and maiming? ABSOLUTELY. Hallucinations and half dreamed occurrences? DEFINITELY. Seriously, if you watched Nip/Tuck, this show is following the same path. Not that that's a bad thing. I love love love love Jessica Lange, and hellllllo Dylan McDermott's ass... As someone who watched The Practice religiously, and lusted after Dylan McDermott for years, I can say I quite enjoy seeing him be morally compromised and naked once more.
Grimm - Watched the first episode, liked it. We'll see if I keep it.
Once Upon a Time - See above. I do think I'll keep this one though. I quite like Jennifer Morrison, and I also quite like that it takes place in the North East (though, of course, filmed in Canada). I guess if there's any place in the US that looks like it's from a fairy tale, it's Maine.
Pan Am - Okay, I'm ridiculous, insanely, immensely obsessed with this show. You have no freaking idea. It's my favorite of the season, and I just don't get the people who say it has no substance. I think it has a lot. You've got a girl in the 60's learning how to be her own woman outside of a relationship, you've got a bohemian who plays by her own rules and is not afraid to be herself, a lovely woman with a tragic past who embodies glamour and beauty, and a girl who grew up always feeling like second best, who ran away to live her life. I love it. Kate's my favorite character, but I love them all. And OMG is the girl who plays Laura beautiful. She has probably the most perfect, symmetrical face I've ever seen. I SO ship Kate with her CIA/Interpol contacts, and Laura with Ted.

Random Other
Sugar Rush - I watched the first episode the other day, and managed to spend HOURS marathoning most of the first series. Love it. And ANDREW GARFIELD! I keep randomly seeing him in things without knowing he was in them prior to watching.

1. Don't be alarmed if you randomly get replies to comments you posted a long time ago. I'm trying to go through them and reply, because I hate being such a sucky friend.

2. I'm freaking the fuck out over my imminent schooling. Several of the programs I want to apply to have deadlines in January. And since, for some reason, I assumed the deadlines wouldn't be until April/May, I'm screwed. SCREWED.

I made a list of programs that look interesting. Luckily my first choice isn't due until June. But my second choice (University of Hawaii Tropical Medicine) is January 15th. *cries*

3. I started watching Gloomy Salad Days awhile back, but I don't think I'll continue watching it. It's just... weird. But it made me realize just how long it's been since I've watched a twdrama. Which is bad, because now I'm noticing all the shitty production again. Clearly I need to watch a big budget twdrama, just so I can ease my way into them again.

I'm in an American tv mood right now, but I think I'm going to watch Mawang and Maou. Probably Maou first, since it's shorter. And possibly Yamikin Ushijima-kun because my dearest Taki stars in it. Though he looks HORRIBLE in it (why the facial hair? WHY?!). Almost makes me miss when he looked like a dirty hobo.

Also, surely everyone has seen the preview for the ParaKiss movie by now, right?
I'm dying, DYING to see it. Osamu as George (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Words can not possibly express just how awesome and perfect this is), Keiko as Yukari (I love her so much... not loving the rumors she's dating Osamu. She need to stick to Pi, kay?)... Amazing dream casting. I'm a little less sure of Yusuke as Hiro (not that I don't love him, but it just doesn't seem right to me... I picture someone kinda like Shun... or Kim Bum, randomly), but I guess it'll work out.


Still waiting for a Big Bang comeback. Getting tired of said waiting.

Ah! Flist spam, but I can't help it!

I am so in love with Paradise Kiss! I love Yukari so much. She's so not the typical anime heroine, and I love her for it. And OMG George. If George were real, I would hunt him down and kidnap him. I ADORE him. I love that he's based off a character in Velvet Goldmine (I was very obsessed with Velvet Goldmine during my post Moulin Rouge, Ewan McGregor-obsessed days), and I just love his personality. He's an asshole, but I like the assholes, remember?

It kinda reminds me of Dal Ja's Spring, in that 99% of the time it seemed like that drama was made for me. Seriously, they kept doing things that were exactly what I wanted to see or hear. Well, Paradise Kiss isn't that exact, but I swear, they somehow got a hold of a manual entitled "How to make Meredith a flaily fangirl"...

Anyway, I love Yukari and George's relationship. And I already know the ending is going to make me sad. But, eh! SO CUTE! (I also loved their sex scene! So. Much. Meta! It was hilarious)



*sigh* So good.

Seriously. *flails incoherently over the whoooooole thing*

I swear there must be something wrong with me.

Today I've eaten at around six clementines, an entire pommelo, and a navel orange. Why the citrus overload, body? I don't even know.

At least I won't get scurvy.

(In other news, I started Paradise Kiss, and while it's still a little early to tell for sure, I think I LOVE it)
