I am all nostalgia-fied tonight... so, have one of the prettiest examples of things I'm currently yearning to re-experience.

I wish I could have found a video that starts about 15 seconds sooner, when Anthy has Utena's head resting in her lap, then she carefully sets Utena down, picks up an axe and swings-- quick cut to Utena, sleeping -- swings and breaks a water pipe, and the lights go out. THEN this scene.

Anyway, it's probably the most gorgeous three minutes of anime I've ever seen, so... go enjoy the pretty and the nice music. (also, Toki Ni Ai Wa is totally an appropriate Hiro/Ando song. You know it.)

Part of my problem these days is dehydration, I think. That should be something easy to fix, right? Except I'm too much of a lazy ass to go refill my glass every hour or so. >.> I need a gallon jug mostly filled with ice and I'll be set all day long, I think...

I just ordered two of the Star Trek paperbacks I swore I had but can't find. >.> So now I think I will have all of the ones Diane Duane wrote, which is good because oh man I want to read The Wounded Sky and the text file ain't cutting it, that was such a great book. Diane Duane = the best ever, okay thank you bye.

Awesome Star Trek thing... Warning: Sound starts automatically. Second warning: This may make you wet your pants with laughter. TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT THE MOTHERFUCKING SHIP. I think the best part is Nero with the tiny FML next to his head... No, the whole things's pretty brilliant. xD

If you have Twitter, go add LIVESTRONGCEO and... something about $25 grand, I'm not sure, go do it and you'll be doing a good thing for cancer research, okay?

I have begun my campaign of watching all of TOS. So far I am only three episodes in. Once I watch them, I am moving them into folders, "Good" and "Not Good." So far, The Man Trap was good, Charlie X was amusing but too annoying to be good, and Where No Man Has Gone Before just plain sucked. Next one up: The Naked Time! That one is AWESOME, not only for George Takei shirtless and swashbuckling. He was hella fine back in the day, for serious.

I leave you at last with one reason Charlie X was so amusing:

I'm supposed to be sleeping but instead I am here dying of mega-lulz. I JUST GOT SHAT... LMAO!

And that pic... *dies* I just watched that episode this afternoon.

Oh god. LOL. LOL.

I'm going to bed. I'm delirious.

So, first you have me going, "Awww, I remeber that show! Now I want to watch the series all over again" and being all nostalgic, and then I clicked on the [livejournal.com profile] sparkly_stuff and just laughed my ass off and now I have to have that song.

If it's a colossal fluid containing device you seek, I strongly recommend the Bubba Keg. I got the 52 ounce one a few years back for my birthday and I loves it.

There's a gorgeous Utena AMV to the Bjork song... fuck, I can't remember the title, "I'm a fountain of blood in the shape of a girl; you're a bird on the rim hypnotized by the whirl."

I love Utena. Juri was my favorite.

Bachelorette! Yes, that's one of my absolute favorite AMVs! ♥

Juri was so heartbreaking. I always had a soft spot for Mikage and Mamiya... oh, Black Rose boys. Tragic.

Please tell me you've seen the "Torn" AMV.

I'm pretty sure I've seen, like, every Utena AMV made before 2006, because that's when I watched every single one I could find xD

(ps it totally looks like Clancy is wearing a big red bow for a collar xD)

Omg, it is so damn near impossible to find the Utena manga/anime anymore. I came so late to the party and it pains me. I finally found volume 4 of the manga (and the Adolescence of Utena manga) at AN this year, but 5 is nowhere to be found. =( I even dreamed about finding it last night (although it was number 7 for some odd reason, and about 3 times the size of a normal volume, yum!) but I didn't have money to pay for it. TRAGIC!

Hee, I have two absolutely gorgeous Utena AMVs saved in my collection. One by Meri (Temple O' Trunks) which is of the movie and set to "Castles in the Sky" and a collab between her and someone else that's called "Sex, Lies and Roses" they're so fabulous.

I'm not sure whether it's better than raining men but raining roses is still pretty freaking epic. XD

And the 'I'm on a boat' Star Trek Parody?
I. Died. Laughing. XDDD
Thank you for the linkage.
