Ever Wonder?

I sometimes wonder. Like… why the world turns. Or why there are munkies. Or why she freakin’ hates me. The general stuff. However, I had a very strange thought occur – like why things disappear.

I admit, I’ve been taking good advantage of my new DVD writer – I’ve been backing up lots of anime, I made my first DVD home video, and I half-compiled Zatoichi on DVD (the subtitles mysteriously disappeared near the end of the movie). Anyway, I digress. I backed up a lot of anime, but something strange happened – I’m missing all of my Tantei Gakuen Q. Poof! It just disappeared without a trace. I’m at a loss as to what happened. This isn’t anything like the time I lost over 20 GB of anime. No no no… I have tons of anime sitting in my Anime folder, and one empty Tantei Gakuen Q folder. Honestly, what gives? I think I would remember deleting an entire series, and I tend to do that only after a backup of that series. So… somebody punch me in the face, because I HAVE to be dreaming.

Anywaaaay… back to this morning. I woke up and got ready for work, and on a spur of the moment, decided to make a somewhat Japanese-style breakfast (somewhat meaning that I was limited to ingredients). I prepared a bowl of rice and miso soup. Hot damn – I need to make breakfast like that every morning. It really got me going. Nothing like the fine taste of miso in the morning. The best part is, it was brown miso! Yum yum yum!

Bad weather now. Getting cold again, and I heard that it hailed this afternoon. What the hail is going on here? Hehehe. Bad pun, I know.

Umm… this weekend was okay. I know I didn’t update since Friday, but that’s because Saturday was busy like crazy, Sunday was spent preparing and encoding Zatoichi (which failed because of the missing subtitles near the end of the movie) and playing La Pucelle: Tactics (yes, I actually played it – and it rocks!), and Monday was a busy enough day at work that I couldn’t really do any updating.

During restaurant work on Sunday, I composed Crazy Train into my cell phone. Being a bit more adventurous, I also composed Return To Zero (my brother’s guitar riff he’s been working on for the past year). When we got home after work, Eugene and his band were practicing in the basement, so we all went downstairs and watched them play. It was cool, they finally got Natashia to sing Crazy Train. They also sang a good rendition of The Reason, and Paranoid. Darryl is a wicked awesome drummer. The whole band just clicks. Anyway, they left that night to Winnipeg, and they were playing live in the Forks, Monday night. They were headlining the show that was on there. Cool stuff.

Monday – did some searching for some Japanese recipes. Found out how to make miso – not that I’d actually make it. A whole year to ferment the stuff until it becomes brown!!! Insane!! After work, dad picked me up as usual and we went to the restaurant. I had to run some errands, so I left and did my deposit, then searched for some bottled tonkatsu – but nobody sells it in this town. The American image of Japanese cooking is teriyaki!! Ricoculous!!! >_<

The one with all the Lesson Reviews.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog ever since I started using Hummingbird last fall. So, I decided to try an idea of mine called Lesson Reviews. Essentially, it’s more of a “what I learned from X anime” than a review, but the thing is, there will be good and […]
