I was looking around other blogs that I have missed during my absence and noticed a flood of “My Desk” posts. It originally started with the Danny Choo contest that Mitoko mentioned to me a while back. I did not have much to post about today to be honest, so here is my small meager desk/home XD.
This is the overall scope of my desk. I just got a new desk a month or so ago. I had some money coming in from graduation and decided this would be a decent puchase. I listen to a lot of music so I have a sourround sound system hooked up to it. It was orginially bought for my TV, then I had the interesting idea to rig it up to my computer, awesome idea on my part XD. Wish my desk had more figures and such like most otaku *Sigh* damn being poor.
One of my favorite action figures I have. The Epyon from Gundam Wing, I used to collect Gundam action figures when I was little and he was one of my favorite ones along with my Zaku. The Epyon’s leg came off and I know that is not the original sword, but I lost some pieces to the other one.
My other figures I have on my desk, I got more on my shelves above my bed, but this is my desk post, not my room XD. I will post pics of my room here soon. I got new stuff since the last people have seen it.
My first wallscroll ever, hangs above my desk you can see. The small plastic Card Captors stand came from a DVD I bought from Dollar General O_o…I kinda thought that was weird and cool. My Rurouni Kenshin poster hangs on next to my desk, above it is one of my Shana posters.
My bunny!!!!!! My girlfriend and I bought Skeleanimals representing each other in our relationship. Her being the bunny, and me the cat. She bought the bunny first, then sent it to me for me to keep. Then I bought her the Kitty from KidNemo. Thank you KidNemo for having it in stock, they are very hard to find it seems, most other places were sold out.
This is my 2nd desk I have in my room. it is mainly used as a host for our internet. My usb modem I got from Alltel is hooked up to my computer and set up as a shared connection to my router that broadcasts it wirelessly to the other computers in my house. The plastic cabinents is where I keep my misc computer parts that I pulled from other computers over the years.
That is my workspace, and home I guess you can say. Of course nothing fancy, not covered in figma like most otaku (though I wish it was XD) Hope you like ^^
K-ON, the show everyone has been talking about lately, seems to have really taken off. For once in a long time I was able to hop on the bandwagon and watch as the new episodes came out. Though I must be honest, it really reminded me of a another Melancholy of Haruhi, not that its a bad thing.
I was really surprised to see that Mio became the top character of the show. I did not expect that XD, some otaku I am. I think she is an awesome character, but Yui is the one who really made me laugh.
Animation in the series is great, character design is awesome, but honestly…story line did not really hit me too much. I understand it is kinda slice of life, but it still does not grab me too much. I hope I do not get flamed for saying that. I thought it was really funny that only after ep 3 or 4 came out I saw a Mio doujin already out XD. I have no idea if that is common with new shows like this or not.
Anyway……I love the show, going to keep watching it, I do recommend it to fans of Haruhi, you will really appreciate some of the minor similarities ^^ Definitely going to do a follow up post based mainly on the characters here soon XD, so be prepared for that.
Yesterday I was fairly bored and was browsing through my wallpapers I have saved to my computer. Upon the searching I was in my head trying to picture a nice desktop featuring something…well nice, but nothing too perverted. I mean yes a half naked anime girl is always nice to have, but not all the time. Then it hit me. Halloween is coming up soon, so how about a Halloween wallpaper. Luckily I had a few and chose the one above.
Most of you know what my desktop looks like, so no need to give a screenshot, plus I am sure most would much rather have a wallpaper without my icons all over it XD. The timing for a Halloween theme computer was good. Remember Mabinogi? That MMO I posted about some time ago, well my girlfriend decided she wanted to play it with me. She downloaded it on her crazy fast internet nearly 800 Kb/s…*sigh* mine is…3 Kb/s….curse her internet XD.
I got the game updated and noticed that even in MMO land people are decorating for Halloween with the town banners, pumpkins in the town square, as well as the Halloween events taking place. Though during my play I was showing Michelle (gf) how to play. Though she figures things out quickly…she is a genious. Even had a few romantic moments here and there.
My question, do you enjoy holiday events in your MMO games? Do you decorate your desktop for different holidays?
The new Lucky Star OVA that was just recently subbed has been the buzz of most otaku blogs, and anime sites all together. I finally was able to get my hands on it today. I had to get it on the schools internet and go through 10 different sites since most things are blocked. After long searching I finally found it.
My whole plan was to come home right after school make some ramen and sit down at the computer and watch it. Though things did not go as planned. Mom and dad had a pretty large dinner cooked and I was olbigated to eat that. Then after which I had to do the dishes -_-
All that made me want to watch it more and more, then the time came.
It was hilarious. I am still a bit pyched up about it even after a few rounds on Age of Empires 3. Of course being an “Lucky Star” OVA it is just as random as the series you come to know and love. What you see in the series is exactly what to expect too. I love the Kagami Miku cosplay XD. Too bad I forgot to snap shot that. Might need to do that later.
My favorite part was the MMO section of the OVA.
I was kinda of sad I thought I would never see Konata refered to as “Lengendary Girl A” unless I watched the re-runs. That is when this came up.
I really felt bad for Tsukasa when this happened. She was slammed in the face with a volleyball. Poor Tsukasa, though truthfully it did make me laugh a little for some reason.
Had to screencap Konata sorry.
Frankly I found that odd. Overall though I loved the OVA. I was sad, I wish it was a bit longer. Or either something else come out. Unless I am an idiot and there IS something already out and I just do not know about it. Which seems pretty possible knowing me.
I am probably going to give this a few more watches on random occasions during the week. I love it!!!!
