Fall 2014

Fall 2014

Well, it’s time for me to make the list of stuff that I’m watching this season. Here’s the what and why. Fumoffu Holy Grail Shocking Truth Tier Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works – An anime version of the second route in the VN, in some ways replacing the earlier Fate/stay night anime due to (hopefully) being more coherently put together. Apparently reworked a bit so it flows better from the Fate/zero anime. Very well done, and the first time that…

Now on IPv6

Now on IPv6

After a few glitches where I hit multiple bugs in their image transfer system, I moved this site to DigitalOcean’s new NYC3 site with IPv6 support. So, uh, have at it!

Summer 2014

Summer 2014

The season is already almost over. What am I doing writing this up so late. At least I have a proper impression of all the shows that I’m watching… Stuff that I’ve been looking forwards to every week Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun – Lets just say that someone bought a domain just to make this page: http://sakura.chiyo.is.seriously.moe/. Very lighthearted, interesting characters, drama-free. Available on Crunchyroll. INVADERS of the ROKUJYOMA!? – Obviously a classic “harem” anime, most of the girls are invading…

Spring 2014

Spring 2014

It’s spring, the sun is hidden behind the clouds, the snow is gently falling then getting heavier and heavier until we’re buried. Again. In the subzero weather. This being Canada, it’s nice to escape to Anime for a bit; so lets see what’s in the upcoming season. Things that are SHAFT More *Monogatari. Maybe. I dunno what’s going on this this. Mekaku City Actors (KAGEROU PROJECT). Why didn’t anyone bother to tell me that SHAFT was doing this? How did…

Incomplete Sci-Fi Story

Incomplete Sci-Fi Story

So, when poking around my Documents directory, I found this incomplete short piece of Science Fiction. Might as well share it… I wake up to find him still sitting at the workbench he’d been hunched over hours ago when I’d given up for the night. He hears the rustle as I search the nearby floor for the cleanest of my uniforms and asks, without turning around, “You awake?” I am, barely.

Winter 2013/2014

Winter 2013/2014

Alright; a new season of Anime is soon to be upon us. Lets see what there will be. Can’t Miss This Space ☆ Dandy – Imagine if Shinichiro Watanabe came back and made a new Anime about some interesting people in space, and it will be awesome. Only downside is that Yoko Kanno isn’t doing the music. Nisekoi – I haven’t missed a SHAFT show in a while. It wouldn’t do to start now. Sailor Moon (remake) – No idea…

Ender’s Game Movie

Ender’s Game Movie

All in all, I’m actually quite surprised with how well the adaption of the Ender’s Game novel to the big screen went. There were changes made – but for the most part, they really did make sense. A fairly significant amount of material was dropped, but for the most part it wasn’t really story-critical and mostly served to reduce the amount of character development given to side characters. (Note that if you haven’t read the novels or seen the movie,…

The pull of MusicBrainz contributing

The pull of MusicBrainz contributing

MusicBrainz contributors tend to be quite… thorough sorts of folks. Lets take a look at what I’ve been up to over the course of the past few days. Day 1 I’ve worked on a few Picard patches recently, including one that allows tagger script to access metadata from loaded files, and another that saves MusicBrainz track IDs to files. In the interest of giving these a thorough workout, I loaded my entire music library into Picard and went through album-by-album,…
