It’s bit a long while since I did one of these. *cracks knuckles* Let’s go~
So I did blue hair last year when I was in Japan, but it didn’t last too long. So… second time lucky maybe?
It’s been holding up longer than the first time, which is probably because I bleached it twice this time round. And do you know how long the entire process frigging took? Nearly 5 hours D: I don’t know how I survived in the salon chair… Oh the joys of wanting unnatural hair colours. (I looked at my bleached hair, and I think once this blue has faded, I can probably try to bleach it again to go for Sephiroth hair… which will reallllllly not last since it’s so light.)
Happy Lunar New Year~ :D which means LONG BREAK FROM WORK! (That’s the main thing I’m looking forward to. Plus collecting free money is always a win) But yes, new year, hopefully more new posts. (I only had 9 posts in 2017! As compared to 285 in 2014, which is the most I ever had)
Recent movies I caught:

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: touted as a dark comedy, and sure, there are some comedic moments, but I think overall, but the overall feeling was less funny, and more bleak. The reason that started the whole billboard situation did not get resolved, even though there was a small amount of closure, but it’s left ambiguous in the end. The story follows Mildred, who is a battle-hardened woman. She has grit and guts, and the portrayal of her pain is tangible, almost.
The Shape of Water: I love the aesthetics, but to be honest, the plot is cliched and there are loopholes here and there. But the setting and the music was A+. Not sure how I feel about the fishman and the main character getting it on… it’s just hmmm, scaly? Okay, I know, that’s not the point, but can i just say that you can have ugly male characters getting it on with good looking female characters, but you don’t seem to have it vice versa?
Black Panther: Okay, can I just point out how adorable Letitia Wright is? Re the movie, of course, the storyline is predictable, but do we go into a superhero/Marvel movie and ask for something unpredictable? No, of course we don’t. All we want from the good people at Marvel is just the basics – don’t fuck up the characters and stories, give us the witty banter, throw in some eye candy, and we good.
I nearly died laughing during this Gintama episode, which was exacerbated by the fact that I was eating dinner at the time. But yes, catching up with all the Gintama episodes that I haven’t been watching because I got too lazy, even though it is so good!!
I marathon-ed season 2 of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency because it was just that good that I couldn’t stop. Seriously the momentum, it’s like bam bam bam, you just got to keep going. Also, fucking hell, they need to start working on season 3 like, one month ago. C’mon Netflix, we need you to step up and keep it alive. There are so many open questions that we need to get answers to!
This is like so olldddddd, but Thomas is adorable in this, I didn’t know he used to sing for Emerald either! It’s sort of good that he didn’t end up in Dragonforce because he’s perfect in Gloryhammer.
Slowly trying to hit my target of 40 books this year, which is really such a pathetically low number. If only we could count all the fanfics, because I read a shitton of those every year, especially when they stop airing my shows – like, I’m already hitting up AO3 for them Dirk Gently fic, you know?
In other frivolous news, I caved and got myself yet another one of these ‘lucky packs’, after the disappointment from Beautylish’s own version. There are some decent items inside, but idk, I’m not really feeling it, but the value of the items were really as promised.
AND FINALLY, LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, I PRESENT TO YOU, MYV~ no seriously, I got into j-rock when I was about 12, and I’ve been lamenting the fact that so little of these j-rock bands will come over here and perform, whereas we get all those lame kpop shit shelling tickets at insane prices. But hello, MYV~ thank you for coming down and please let your fellow brethren see that Singapore is also a good place to hold concerts. (Calling X Japan, Matenrou Opera, Satsuki, Plastic Tree especially)
