Manga Monday #17: Invisible Roommate

When you start really getting into foreign comics and you're able to see a favorite work go from a fan translation to being officially picked up by an English distributor--that's the coolest thing ever. This recently happened with a Korean series that I actually have already read in its entirety, but that didn't stop me… Continue reading Manga Monday #17: Invisible Roommate

Freebie Friday #16: Sssss… BOOM!

I love video games for many, many reasons, but I think my favorite is doting on some random non-main-character because they're just too cute to ignore.  Like, on Destiny, I love the Ghosts.  I mean, they're so freaking adorable on their own, but then I get the Vertical Shell skin for "Ghosts that want to… Continue reading Freebie Friday #16: Sssss… BOOM!

Thursday Threads #16: Belle “Great Wide Somewhere” DisneyBound

Oh my heck, I love Disney movies.  I talk about Disney perhaps a little too often on here, but let's be honest:  Disney was the first thing that I ever got mega-dedicated-nerd about.  In a sense, Disney was my gateway drug into nerdiness, which, as you can see, is part of my livelihood now. Not to… Continue reading Thursday Threads #16: Belle “Great Wide Somewhere” DisneyBound

Yesterday I gave a basic understanding of Vocaloid and its culture, focusing primarily on the music part of it.  Today, I want to dive deeper to discuss the visual storytelling aspect that has become a big part of Vocaloid.

Tuesday Tunes #16: Japanese Halloween Vocaloid

Back in 2000, a singing voice synthesizer was created in Barcelona, Spain by a Japanese developer.  It's called Vocaloid.  The software is unique as it allows users to type in lyrics and the software will retrieve specially recorded vocals of voice actors or singers to match the wording.  Those words are tied to certain notes… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #16: Japanese Halloween Vocaloid

Manga Monday #16: My Giant Nerd Boyfriend

I haven't been reading digital comics for very long.  I think I've only been reading webtoons for about two years now?  Considering that I've been reading print comics, including manga, since I was at least ten--so seventeen years now, wow--the two years of digital I have under my belt is pretty meager in comparison.  Still, I… Continue reading Manga Monday #16: My Giant Nerd Boyfriend

Freebie Friday #15: I’m So Glad to Live in a World Where There Are Octobers

October, if you didn't know, is the month of books.  No, it's not a monthly awareness campaign, nor is it some sort of holiday, but it is a big part of marketing strategies brought on by book companies--Prestige Book Season.  This month and November are packed with new releases, so much that a book lover… Continue reading Freebie Friday #15: I’m So Glad to Live in a World Where There Are Octobers

Today we're returning to my favorite kind of cosplay.  You know, the kind that uses very, very subtle references.  I love it, they never cease to make me grin.

Watch Wednesday #15: Halloween Movie Countdown — Monster House

If you're looking for family friendly horror flicks, you'll find very quickly that the pool you get to pick from is quite small, and those pickings are, more often than not, quite disappointing.  Yes, there's the ever-entertaining Hocus Pocus, and The Nightmare Before Christmas is incredible, but then we get down to Spookly the Square Pumpkin (yes, this… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #15: Halloween Movie Countdown — Monster House
