Can anyone recommend any good anime series/tv programmes/movies that I can stick on my lovely new iPod? Its screen is so beautiful, I must put pretty things on it, but I can think of nothing.

(Technically, the iPod is my Christmas present, but since I bought it with my own monies and people are going to give me contributions towards it which I don't actually get until Christmas, I'm damned well using it now. XD)

Soooooo. I have been playing quite a lot of The Last Remnant - I'm currently just about to head into the Aqueducts in Nagapur and I've done all but two of the sidequests available. I'm saving those ones for grinding purposes (Cosmos Maiden and Wisdom's Echo). Both Rush and David have randomly learnt Blackout II, skipping Blackout, without me even quite knowing how that happened. Huh.

But. EMMA. Stupid bloody Squenix and their Aeris-style whallops. (Warning: major spoilers in the video.) I am also now deeply afraid of the Conqueror. Is it wrong that I want to see Conqueror/Emma now?

It says something about the way my mind works, though, that I'm not yet at the end of the first disk and I've already daydreamed up a dystopian AU where Rush is on the Conqueror's side.

However, stupid bloody Windows Vista keeps taking exception to TLR. Among other things, it has a) randomly sped up the battle speed in the middle of one battle and now I can't get it back to normal so Rush & Co look like the Energiser Bunny on speed, b) has bluescreened TWICE while I was playing the game, and c) keeps freezing the game in the middle of fights. Sometimes it comes back, sometimes not.

It says something that in the eight-odd years that I used Windows prior to getting the new laptop with Vista, I never once had a computer bluescreen on me. Since getting Vista? Three times in a year. Twice in the last fortnight.

Holy crap.

I have a not-so-secret fondness for ballroom dancing, and the Argentine Tango in particular. But that ... holy crap.

Okay! I think I've played around enough and finally got a journal layout I like - created by [personal profile] grrliz on [ profile] thefulcrum, adapted via the magic of this tutorial. I can't work out how to change "friends" back to "reading" in the top navigation bar, but it's a minor thing.
