I may have inhaled the xxxHolic manga this weekend.

Well, mostly today.

So I'm caught up on what's at MangaFox. So...

Fic recs? I think I like everything. Except Clow, I don't care about him. Everyone else cares enough for me.

Hulu has the episode of Married with Children with an impossibly skinny David Boreanaz.

Happy Halloween!

[personal profile] meganbmoore has a great post on the increasingly infamous flowchart that found pretty much every female character ever wanting, and seemed to forget that Yoko Ono was not fictional. Apparently people are posting their female character icons as a result of the chart as well (FUCK YOU, SHE'S AWESOME round twenty or so), and who am I to refuse showing off my icons?

Iconses! )

Cranes! [Oct. 1st, 2010|09:03 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I keep meaning to pimp this out. Stealing some of this language from [personal profile] octopedingenue.

One of my favorite mangaka and the creator of Saiyuki, Wild Adapter, and Bus Gamer, Kazuya Minekura, is seriously ill with a bone disease and has naturally placed all of her ongoing manga projects on hiatus.

[livejournal.com profile] cranes4minekura is a project assembling a thousand paper cranes folded by fans to mail to Minekura and wish her well. The first deadline for mailing your crane contribution was yesterday, but there have been so many cranes that we're assembling a second thousand to send to her later.

My cranes are ugly but made with love. Go check it out, and fold some too! Postage for paper cranes is cheap. (Cheep?) [livejournal.com profile] smillaraaq has put a tremendous amount of work into this project, and the pictures are amazing!

My brain does horrible things to me. Normal people surely don't read rants like these and suddenly find themselves craving a Merlin AU set in the universe of The Journey to the West.

Please tell me someone's already written this for me.

Make the call, spread the word. Please. (Even if you hate Gaga!)

ETA: I will also link Senate contact info. If you know your senator supports repeal, it's still helpful to call and leave a message of support.

ETA2: Apparently Castro also supported the American gay rights movement, though he didn't know it at the time....

I'm pretty sure I don't have anyone on my flist who can do this, but I'm drafting a story for [community profile] eid_ka_chand / [community profile] au_bingo set in Afghanistan in the 1960s. Yes, I am a masochist. Anyone around who might be able to help? I did find these amazing photos.

Also, what should I put in my LJ layout? I need something new.

You know what I love? Looking back and realizing oh yes, you really did just put AU!Jiroshin in charge of babysitting tiny!Goku and ickle!Sanzo. Kory is ten and would shoot me a Glare of Death for implying that he is in any way ickle.
