The Australian Sex Party? September 2, 2009

I do like their policies. It does sound like they’ve gotten the common sense book and has said “Hey. We like this.” Definitely some guys who’d get the vote. Well, probably alot more if they had a better party name. Like the “We have common sense party”. They do sound like they spank the monkey abit more than most, but apart from that, some genuine, good policies.

Anyhow, you can find their blog here and their policies page here.

At least they don’t act like your parents. Or so I hope. Check em out.


Late-night Website Plugs! August 27, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — reijin64 @ 1:38 am

In my cruising around of the internet, I present: Websites of interest!

The Gamers’ Girl – “Stories of humor, support, and wisdom to those who date, have fallen in love with, or are married to a gamer.”
Looking For Group – A hilarious webcomic that kind-of borrows Warcraft character design. Worth a read if you’re bored. (Most likely at work or procrastinating, no dobut.
Overclockers Australia – Australia’s busiest IT community. I go under the moniker “Lardman” here, and it’s definitely one of the best places for the latest in tech-related news and info.
Ken Rockwell Photography – Definitely my favorite source of photography information. Hands down.

Those three seem to be the only sites I’m reading at the moment, my mind being a void of any other information. But nonetheless, have a read – some good stuff there, and definitely a way to pass these wee morning hours. Anyhow, busily watching and catching up on stuff till I start work next week it is!

That feeling of ‘Bleh’ August 24, 2009

It really does get to you.

Somehow in limbo at the moment – No job for now, waiting to start a new one. And to make things even more annoying, I’m also waiting for money to come through from 2 previous jobs.

It really does suck.

All in all though, life is looking on the up! I’ll have a new job soon, with decent renumeration, and with it, hopefully a new computer in the next few months, along with a makeover of my room hopefully by then.

I’ll have a license, which is also good, and I’m somehow learning Japanese still. Albeit slowly.

So I suppose there isn’t all that much to complain about. But trust me, it really does suck sitting at home not doing anything for a week. (Ok, well it’s not that bad. But it gets a tad boring.)

Anyhow, in more Anime related news, I’ve been watching Umi Monogatari, and catching up to that quite nicely, along with Senjou no Valkyria. I’m still a little mixed on Umi Monogatari. It’s…. serious and then not. Almost as if it can’t decide if it’s a drama, a mahou shojou, or a comedy. The mix is brilliant, when it works (Nanoha anyone?), but when it doesn’t it does give that impression of pretty bloody odd.

I’m still keeping up with Fullmetal somehow – I’ll get around to putting up summaries soon enough. (Which I’ve been meaning to do… heh procrastination)

Now as for Figures – there’s a whole bunch coming up this september/october. Riot Zanber Fate, Exceed mode Nanoha, ActSa, and a whole bunch of other goodies coming soon. Hopefully I’ll have a Lightbox so I can do some proper reviewing by then.

In the meantime however… someone recommend me a good place to get some glass cabinets damnit! My figures are collecting dust in a very quick, horrific way. Which is another thing on the to-do.

Ah well. I suppose being the middle of winter, it’s not unusual to have a whole bunch of crap piled up – but things are getting better, have no doubt. Soon I’ll be kicking in no time.

Oh, and that new domain should be coming roughly… next week. So stay tuned, and hopefully the move won’t be too retarded. It should also feature some art and stuff if I can get that together.

Reijin out.


Another short one. August 21, 2009

As I’ve been working all week, job interviewing too!

Hopefully should hear some positive things tonight. Then for the weekend, some delicious marathon of anime. Hurrah.

Thank god it’s friday.

IT’S A PITY MY FAMILY ALL DECIDE TO USE THE WASHING MACHINE ON THE SAME DAY… (I must remain a vigilant watch in order to nab it.)

God damn, now that that’s off my chest, have a video – Everyone loves Perfume Live (I have no idea how they can dance for that long. Red bull, perhaps?)


New Layout! August 13, 2009

Because have I ever told you how much I absolutely hate non-rounded corners in my web content? For some reason it just doesn’t appeal to me.

Additionally, I’d make the words “Absolutely hate” in bright pink to make it even more annoying, but alas. You can’t always get what you want. Anyhow, I’ve been contemplating moving away from WP to my own domain… possibly. It’s very hard to make these choices, as you could understand. I’ve been somewhat playing around with web layouts over the last few days and I do kind of want to move away from the wordpress limitations and have my own domain done.

Maybe Flickr Premium and my own webspace / domain name. That might work.

Ah well, we’ll see how things pan out.

Anyway, still working on a few writeups. SMASH 2009 for one (photos can be found on my Flickr).

I’ve still yet to get back to writing reviews for FMA which I might just summarise, and there’s a whole bunch of other stuff I’ve been neglecting, for which I apologize. As I am very busy. (read: lazy)

Anyhow, should have something up in the next day or two. Something proper, anyway.
