.:TOHO CLOCK

Touhou Clock

Just something cool I was shown by DoctorNK. It’s a neat little clock that shows 5 seconds worth of a random toohoo antic, then 5 seconds of the time in military format, and then another video. I got a kick out of it, and on the actual site (reach it by clicking the clock), you even get some pretty bitchin’ remixes of Touhou music with your clocking needs. There are bleeps and bloops to count the seconds in most songs.

I’d originally planned to embed it, but WordPress isn’t going to have ANY OF THAT, OH NO.

also, no, I’m not dead. 😡

You are already dead.

.:Ugh.

Welp, so much for that plan.

I’m currently looking for a job… applied at a farmer’s market that’ll be opening soon in the nearby city, which would be great. I figure if I can work full-time at even just minimum wage for a few months, I’ll have living expenses for my pre-sought apartment covered and have a little extra left over to buy online crap with. I hope I get it… though, if not, I suppose I can just try for another place sometime.

Just finished Mario and Luigi 3… great game. My full review will be on We Rate Stuff soon, so check it out if you’re interested. I’m also working on reviews for PuchiPuchi Virus and Knights in the Nightmare, so keep a look out. I should probably start writing up reviews for the Touhou games as well, but since you can buy the disks as well as download it online, I’m not quite sure what the legality on that is, and I don’t want to get WRS in trouble. I suppose I’ll ask later.

In other life news, I’ve restarted work on my novel (Trilo, for those who didn’t know about it), with the help of my girlfriend Megan. It’s going rather slowly at the moment, but I’ve made a powerful revision to the first chapter, and so far, it’s going quite well, I’d like to think. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here, though chances are if I get the job I so desperately need, I’ll be taking another lengthy hiatus until I move again. Sigh. Just can’t catch a break, can I?

Has anyone else ever caught that feeling where it seems like no matter how hard you work, how much you try, it never adds up to what you need to be able to be happy? I think I’m in one of those slumps at the moment… I feel like everyone else is getting what I’m working towards, and every time I manage to make a huge breakthrough, it manages to backfire on me. All I can really do is keep at it until I succeed, of course, but… sometimes I wonder if that’s really all I can do. It feels like I should be doing more, but I really can’t think of anything else. I’ve got that feeling in my stomach I get when I’m homesick, even though I’m lying here on my bed. I wonder what that means…

…I wish I could just leave, because this feeling isn’t too great.

This is Fable.

No, I’m not talking that newfangled crap you see on Xbox and Xbox360. This is old-school, as made by Simbiosis Interactive back in 1996. It’s a classic point-and-click type of adventure game. And it’s hilarious.

Everything you hear in this video is real game audio. It has not been edited, save for just throwing random clips in order from the start of the game to the end. Spoilers abound, if you plan on tracking it down and actually playing it.

…If you’re thinking about getting this game, stop thinking and go. If you:

.:are a fan of the Guilty Gear series.

.:like great metal and metal-fusion music.

.:want to try your hand at a fighting game genre outside of the likes of Street fighter or Mortal Kombat.

.:like strange, kooky, and just downright creepy characters.

.:any combined of the aforementioned.

…then you need to buy this game. End of story. It’s good. You’ll love it. It’s not quite like Guilty Gear, but if you’ve played it before, it’ll feel at least a little familiar to you. I’d hurry and get the Limited Edition while you can; it’s the same price, includes a whopping 42-track soundtrack across two CDs, and a very informative DVD featuring tricks and tips from the combined brains of Dustloop and Shoryuken, the former of which I myself am a member and eagerly approve of.

Still not convinced? Well aren’t you hard to please? Videos after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »

No, I didn’t forget to update several times! What are you talking about, fool?! You must be a youkai! I’ll kill you!!

Anyway, as soon as I get a scanner, I promise, I’ll have some interesting things here, mainly in the form of my (almost) daily 4koma comic, FurryFriday. It features me and my friends and everyday conversations, as well as life happenings and random crazy thoughts that happen in my head. Also, Touhou! Everyone loves Touhou!

Speaking of Touhou, I’ve been referring all of my friends to it… I’ve gotten at least 5 obsessed, or at least interested, which is good; It’s always epic when an obscure title gets more recognition. Also, Pit got me thinking about making a Touhou-themed Pokemon team (no, not Touhoumon, yes, I know that exists). Here are some ideas (that I’m sure have been done):

Orin/Chen the Delcatty(Persian?)

Cirno the Magikarp

Mokou the Moltres

SHA-MEI-MA-RU (Aya) the Honchkrow?

Kaguya the Dragonite

Eirin the Chansey (Because the sentence “Eirin used Softboiled!” is hilarious)

Reisen (Tewi?) the Lopunny

China (Meirin) the Lucario

Marisa the Anything with Hyper Beam

Patchouli the Noctowl

And those are all I’ve got so far. Anyway, I guess that’s all for now. See you next week sometime. Whoo, TAKS and me already passing it so I don’t have to show up at school!
