Music Monday

November 29, 2010, by , posted in Music

So recently, I’ve been enjoying the endearingly cute and fluffy production of Shinryaku! Ika Musume. It’s one of this season’s new offerings, the story of which revolves around a squid girl from the ocean, who is annoyed at humans for polluting the sea, and decides to ‘invade’ the local beach house restaurant. Predictably, she fails, and is instead press-ganged into helping the beach house out! Cutesy squidgirl-related shenanigans and hijinks ensue.

For the rest of us (who will never hold a cute squid-girl with tentacles for hair in their arms ;_; ), it’s finally the end of uni and the beginning of summer break. Prepare the fans and the rattan mats! Or you could turn on the air conditioning in complete disregard of the environment, you ratbag. But then out of nowhere, a moe~ carbon dioxide girl may suddenly emerge from the clouds passing overhead and then punch a hole in your wall… mhmmm.

More to come after the break, de geso~!

So apparently there’s a new a Berserk coming out, which I am totally excited about. Unfortunately, I don’t think enough people are excited about. So I’m going to dedicate this Music Monday to one of the best anime/manga of all time: Berserk. (Big surprise)

Berserk (anime) was made back in the 1997 and saw an Australian release in around 2003, which makes it fairly old in anime terms. But with that said, the manga started coming out in 1989, which is BEFORE SOME OF YOU WERE BORN! Therefore as your elder, this series demands your respect.

In a loud voice, “This era is survival,” goes the commentator.

Welcome to exam period.

Its that time of semester again, where all you’re thinking about is studying, how much life sucks and how to get a pass in a subject. The name of the game is survival and, not so coincidentally, this song is called Survival too. By one of the most popular J-Rock bands, Glay, the song is off of their album Heavy Gauge and was one of their most popular songs. The song itself is fast-paced and has a very intricate rhythm and rhyme to it that is apparently really cool if you understand Japanese and totally goes over your head if you don’t. But this is an anime blog and we’re here to talk about the anime in it.

The music video is directed by Koji Morimoto of Studio 4°C, and if you’re wondering, the video clip is standalone and does not come from a series or movie. Morimoto first worked on Akira as an animation director and has since made various features and music videos (All of which you should go out and watch). His work is a bit abstract, it kind of asks questions in metaphors. Oddly enough, they’re the same kind of metaphors I like to ask myself when I’m in exam period, such as: “Why am I here?” “What is the meaning of life?” “Why is life full of suffering?” “What does it mean to be human?” “Is there a higher state of existence (maybe one free of exams)?”

But all that is a bit heavy on the thinking. And that’s kinda not what we want right now in exam period. So do what I do, zone out and rock out to one of Glay’s best songs.

A lesser known, yet still excellent series, Baccano has excellent pacing as well as thought out characters.

Club Person of the Year

November 7, 2010, by , posted in News

Every year, each UTS Union club nominates a person amongst us who has shown dedication beyond the mean, stepped up the pillar of achievement, attained a new levels of awesome, ushered an era of new feats, swan dived into a pool of greatness and whatever else. One person will become Club Person of the Year and he or she will gain the people’s ovation and fame forever (and also a nice little certificate to go along with it). So…

Congratulations to Izzy for being our Club Person of the Year!

Along with the voting, every year there’s also an Awards Night where these club people of the year are awarded their awards (hence why its an award night). The night is a chance for a few execs of each club to dress up, chow down and drink alot.

After getting our drinks, we parked ourselves near some couches which coincidentally and conveniently was located near the hallway the waiters come out of with food. While the invitation said there would only be canapes available during the night, there was ample amounts of food: Sausages, oysters, prawns, sausage rolls, tuna things on spoons and salad/noodle boxes. But the best part was probably dessert: Mini-Ice Cream cones and Churros! We eventually got overwhelmed with desserts and had to dual-wield ice creams, which we had no problem with.

But while only one person can win Club Person of the Year, its also meant to recognise the combined efforts of all the execs and members of the club. So thank you all for helping to make this club what it is today!
