DMNY likes: "Last Exile"

Watched the "Last Exile" series yesterday. DVD covers by none other than Range Murata and as a little nod, I couldn't resist playing with one image I found online.
What about the series?
Rent it! Even better...Buy it!

A true gem from Gonzo and a nice time for any steam punks and cloudheads (Miyazaki fans anyone?) out there. Each of the 26 episodes makes you want to see the next.
I'm still humming the "Open Sky" from Hitomi Kuroishi, the song for the end credits.
Happy Christmas to all of you, readers.

A thought...not so far away.

On this festive season, I'd like to remember a special someone.
I know you can read this, darling.

Of all times, I wish I could swim in your warmth.

And even far away, I didn't forget...So this is with much love from me to you.

Nickelback - Far Away Lyrics

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know


So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe and, Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

It's been a while since I've updated my blog but with all the negativity that happened recently, I thought I needed to give it some rest. Didn't take the restructuration that hard other than financially. Sure, I do miss my old job and the people I used to see on a daily basis but againI still think this is life. Nothing is eternal. I just wished they did the restructuration after the holidays if not only for the chances of finding another job quickly.

I should find a job pretty easily with my background (a HR lady from IBM kindly confirmed this) and maybe I ought to grab a job ASAP. Thing is, I know my worth and will not settle for anything less. I'm not some new brat on the block.and like IBM, I will continue to refuse positions until I find the right one. It'll allow me more time to write.

The extra time gave me plenty of opportunity to research on different subjects and matters for upcoming scripts. From Taoism to San Francisco's Chinatown, I've looked deeper until I was able to find the little hints I was unawarely looking for. It should be fun.

I've left GoD for the moment because of different factors. Factors which writers are divided upon. One of them is budget and cost of production. GoD is one of those projectsI feel will be very expensive to make. The background, the settings and the special FX alone would be tremendously expensive. Could turn into an animated movie for adults but I'm not in Japan and honestly, when have I seen an adult/horror animated movie from N.America?


I've listened to a lot of music and watched even more movies (classic and recent) than ever. Spent a lot of money to purchase loads of movies I didn't have or didn't see. I got to stop doing that with myfinancial status at the moment. After all, Xmas has been somewhat cancelled for me. No gift purchases and not asking for any.

I'll be spending Xmas day with family and Boxing day with friends. I'm not sure about New Year's eve, got a couple of invites but no idea if I'm going to accept any of them. I'm not really in any sort of festive mood.

No news whatsoever on MT friends, not even a blink. I guess I should turn the page on them but somehow, I still hold on to that part of my life. Silly emotional me.

Not much else to say. I will keep you folks updated on my misadventures in the real world.

Man, I do wish I had a blue pill.
