Once again the folks at OverClocked ReMix proudly present to us another free and awesome remixed game music album. This time the album is a remix of Final Fantasy IV you can grab the album from the site here. The torrent comes in at a whopping 1.67GBs as it contains both Mp3 and Flac files so be sure to set your preferences if you only want one type of file. I’ve listened to a few tracks and I’m loving it. Always nice to know how the song goes through other people’s head and what kind of remix they can come up with.

German quizzes every Tuesday and Thursday have left me in despair!!!

German quizzes every Tuesday and Thursday have left me in despair!!!

An unfortunate unplanned gap of no posts for which I might have recovered from (or not). What it boils down to is: taking a language course in college for a summer session is a BAD idea, very bad. My schedule is full of German Monday-Friday/Saturday. Quizzes every Tuesday and Thursday are pretty killer. Not to mention I’m also taking a history class but that is pretty easy.

Things in life have been progressing whether it cares if I’m busy or not. One is my major got cut out by my University so I’m going to have to figure out a new major to flag. New anime season is out. Figs are still being released and are super expensive T_T. etc etc.

I’ve been able to watch a good amount of the anime season on Sundays when they almost all release and occasionally during the busy weekday. So far I’ve watched Bakemonogatari, Zan Zetsubou Sensei, Umi Monogatari, Spice and Wolf II, Umi Neko, Hidamari Full Colors 3 (Art Design Class), Moe baseball (Taisho Yakyuu), CANAAN, and Lesbian Paper Route (Kanamemo). So far Bakemonogatari is the best new show of the season by far. The characters draw you in pretty quickly and of course the 1st thing you notice in a SHAFT production is the art so that helps keep your attention. Literally translated as “Ghost Stories” there’s nothing really scary about the show…yet. Lots of interesting folklore and mysterious character backgrounds that hopefully will be explained. Oh and Senjogahara is super hawt.

Other than that I’ve been reading Zaregoto while waiting for class to start/ when bored since my friend lent it to me. A very interesting read. Good reads are welcomed and I wish it happened more often heh. I haven’t gotten to the meat and potatoes of the story yet but what I have read so far is good. Wish there were more Light Novels to read, waiting on Kara no Kyoukai to release (even though I’ve read the 1st volume about 4 times). I keep forgetting to pick up The Twelve Kingdoms, and I wish Bakemonogatari was out. If anyone has some suggestions of Light Novels to read please feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail.

Well that’s about it, a very disorganized post but just posting to keep things going and reminding me somewhere in the back of my head that this blog does exist.

On another note I want to throw out a neat networking tool I heard about from a little bird (National Public Radio): Aardvark a bit of a tough one to explain but it basically goes like this: Have a Question? Aardvark searches your friends databases to see if they or any of their friends have compatible interests and are able to answer the question. Questions can be answered in about 5 minutes or less. Another interesting networking site that sometimes gets answers resolved better than Google. Pretty new and interesting, give it a try.

Well that’s all for now folks. Here’s hoping I don’t try to extend the length of my neck somehow.
