Skyrim overhaul

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
When I decided to play Skyrim I got myself the smallest pack I could find with an outdated patch. I knew of extensive modding of course but I though at first I need to learn the game as it is. However, I had a feeling at some point I might delve into the dangerous world of moding and so it happened. Now I'm level 21 and learned the ropes, I decided it was time to go check out what the world has to offer. Of course I instantly came across some great gameplay mods but it turned out most mods are for new patches and I decided not to go there. Instead, I went into texture and armour sections. Textures are mostly harmless so I got a few prettifying packs for girls and boys. At first, it seemed weird how glamorous the girls looked, their skin all smooth but I decided to keep it, after all all the women of Skyrim look like they're 35 at the very least. The guys look good tho, no issue. Then, I really wanted to get some clothing because the game is really lacking in there but for that I first had to get a body mesh which I did. In the end, I got not a single new dress and just one armour. Though there's a lot of sexy clothing available, most of it is awfully skanky so for me there wasn't much choice, really.

At any rate, for now here's what Alana and Lydia look like:

That is Seraphine armour which, what do you know, happens to be better defense that elven armour I had before.
So far I did have one crash at one point but hopefully it won't be persistent.

TVXQ, blast from the past

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
So today I was watching John Oliver's video on Tensions in Korea and there was a part about SK blasting stuff from their speakers to NK including anti-NK propaganda and also K-pop. Then this happened...

 photo John Oliver - Tensions in Korea.mp4_snapshot_01.44_2015.08.24_15.33.19.jpg

"Now they haven't said exactly what music they've been playing but I hope it's some of the better k-pop stuff. I'm talking 'Seoulight' by Neon Bunny, basically, anything by Uhm Jong Hwa, Jo Sung Mo's early stuff or maybe TVXQ, of course before Hero Jaejoong left because I think we all know that after that the whole band sound went to shit."

Thank you, John. That was unexpected and a tad Jaejoong-biased but thank you.

Also yesterday I watched Ode To My Father. A really powerful film. A bit too sentimental maybe like all Korean films and too drama packed but the setting mostly justifies it. I cried at least 3-4 times but it really leaves an impression. Amazing directing and camera work, I really love when present is mixed up with the past and scenes fade out one into another. One surprise though was seeing Yunho there. While I respect him as an artist, I don’t think he’s a good actor and, most importantly, his role was completely a Yama Pi role (yes, that’s a term now) and honestly felt really redundant but at least it made me smile among the tears.

Tonight I had this very vivid dream where I met this boy who lived on my floor. He was like 5 but he was really smart and mature but troubled. And I tried so hard to look after him, to help him. It's really odd when you get attached to dream people probably generated by your own mind.

Tolkien World

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
So few weeks ago I finally downloaded the last film in The Hobbit trilogy but since sister hasn't seen it and it's been pretty long anyway we decided to watch the first two films first. By the time we finished I thought, "Hey, it's been 14 years since the first LOTR film and it's chronologically a sequel to Hobbit and I got all films in blu-ray on my HD" so it makes perfect sense to watch them too so in the end we had this 2-week marathon.

 photo The_Lord_of_the_Rings_Characters.jpg

It was really a cool experience. I got to really appreciate both the work of Tolkien and all the hordes of people who created the magnificent if not entirely accurate films. I never read and of the books myself. I tried once but it was so detailed that I gave up. It might be for the best as I didn't have to compare the films to the books or it might have ruined it for me. But I watched and read stuff about Tolkien and was blown away by his vivid imagination and the ability to create a whole fucking world for many generations to come.

I'm currently playing Skyrim and now being able to compare the two worlds I realized just how much of the genre was created by Tolkien. I mean it's not just dwarfs and elves but dwarfs have heavy armor and axes of a certain shape and elves have light armour and use bows and magic. Or the fact that the basic classes of warrior/mage/thief are basically laid out in The Hobbit. Even stuff like giant spiders and crypts is all there, virtually unchanged in all the RPGs.

But apart from all that, I think one of the most important things Tolkien did was create a huge epic tale and put the world's destiny in the hands of not just brave mighty warriors but also small seemingly helpless creatures.

As for the movies, there are many high-budget cinema wonders that come out every year it's easy to overlook just how impressive a work has been done here. The great casting, the fantastic director's work, the beautiful armour and architecture and so much more. It's been a fun ride.

Orange is the New Black S3

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
OITNB continues to kick ass. Paola said it's rather light which you might say is true but there's so much to it, man. It's amazing how you don't even realize just how many characters there are until you see a new lead nearly every episode (omg Chang). And then you realize there are many more waiting for their stories to be told. And then of course there are familiar characters who develop amazingly and the most bizarre relationships form. I was really amazed by the odd friendship of Boo and Pennsatucky. Ruby Rose was such a sensation but she just ain't my thing, man. But Chapman... I identify with Chapman in an odd way. I admire her strength and survivability. For some reason I can also understand her quest for power and the urge to be taken seriously.

OITNB is that one series you never knew how badly you needed it until you saw it.

Ugh, now 4shared is waging a copyright war. It removed some file I didn't know even existed on my account and disabled public sharing. To enable it I have to promise there's nothing infringing anymore but hey I dunno about that since obviously every single file there is infringing, why else do I need it?I don't really use it much but I used it for storing my fanvideos and some other stuff and that it such a bitch.

Skyrim and other timewasters

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
So I'm officially in the Skyrim club although just barely. It was a long time coming but it feels natural. But before I talk about that, a few words of how it came to it.

I've been having this RPG itch for awhile now. I didn't give in to it though telling myself I've got Marvel Heroes but that is actually a very different thing, both in genre and the gameplay. So in the end a few days back I did a power move and deleted Sims to make the space for the game. Now the options are quite limited for good RPGs with pretty graphics and a character customization but I got a few in my cart. First of all I went for Pillars of Eternity. It was at #2 funded game on Kickstarter, had good reviews and it was brand new so I expected good things. What I got instead was average graphics, weird plot and too much gore (which is saying something considering it's a pretty old-school distanced RPG). It had a bit of Torment: Planescape feeling but the plot just wasn't worth it.

Then there was another one which seemed alright but the graphics turned out to be very disappointing. Got rid of it. That's when I got back to Skyrim. It wasn't that easy though, first I somehow manged to download the xbox version.

 photo ScreenShot10.jpg

Currently Level 10 and I have so much to say about the game, good and bad. I've heard so much about it that I had high expectations but screens don't give you a real idea of the game.

The graphics are good, I'll give it that but I have many issues with the gameplay. With Drakensang everything was obvious and intuitive but here I had to actually google the simplest things. Took me quite some time just to figure out how to open and close inventory and such. I just don't get the lack of character screen, gearing is simply annoying. Same goes for skills as you can't really see the full picture. The leveling seems kinda primitive though I do like that you level a skill by using it, that makes a lot of sense.

The battles are difficult. You can't pause and gather your wits and there's no automatic battle mode. While the real-time effect is sort of refreshing it all happens so fast and I get really confused just figuring out where the enemy is a lot of the time. The companion system is also simplistic as fuck. You can't even talk to them and you can't give them direct orders during battle, they just copy your moves most of the time. I do like like the absence of classes though so you can master any skill you like without penalty. On top of that, it's not just bout the biggest weapon or the heaviest armour like in most RPG games, the heavy weapons and armour slow you down a lot so you really need to think which you gonna choose. Also I like the challenge of battles where with strong enemies you really need to figure out a strategy and use combination of shouts, magic and weapons to win.

I like the plot so far (who doesn't like dragons) though all the references like names and places are hard to take in at once. I like the interactiveness of the game, how the characters are very sensitive to their surroundings.

Despite the rather bleak imagery, I don't get too freaked out. Well, I do but it's tolerable. I have already successfully cleared a rather nasty dungeon with ghouls and traps so I should be good. But we shall see, definitely not 100% clearing guaranteed.

I've been waiting on this one for months. After "Gold" became a single I almost lost hope but after all this happened, Blue got a PV. It's a special song to me since that's how I met Marina, it was the first song I heard. Plus I really wanted one fun summer video and it's exactly that.

The funny thing is, in Marvel Heroes I took the name Blueglass but in our supergroup we all have nicknames so mine is simply Blue. I like it, it's sad but fitting.

sg_paanas massu birthday giveaway contest 2015 (2nd place)

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
Massu has shown much courage lately, for example wearing full-length tights in public in 4vsX and challenging his fear of fish and worms in Ah Domo Hajimemashite Tabi. So the question is, what other new things would you like to see brave Massu try? It can be on TV or on other media like magazines, it can be something he has professed to be really scared of eg animals, it can be just something exciting eg some kind of new sport or activity, etc etc! Give us more details!


First of all, I want to say that Massu has done some really amazing things in 2014 and 2015. Thanks to Ippuku, he was able to have so many new amazing experiences. While all three of his segments were fun, I think Deshi ni Shite Kudasai was the most amazing one. I was ultimately impressed when Massu held a huge snake in the zoo. Then this year there was 4vsX and Ah Domo Hajimemashite Tabi. I admire him for challenging so many things and making such progress but in a way I also want him to go at his own pace without straining himself too much. This is why I don't really want him to go in that direction but do something different entirely. Instead of doing something he's bad at I'd like to see him do something he's actually good at.

I think one thing I'd like to see Massu try is giving makeovers. People, possibly other celebrities, would come to his show in their usual attires and he would give them a complete makeover, make them try a completely different style using his unique fashion sense. I think it would be really fun and unpredictable. Another idea I have is Massu managing a kids' festival. I just have this image that he could do such a great job coming up with the costumes and decorations. Plus Massu&kids=adorable. Another thing Massu loves is food so I think it would be natural if he did a food tasting one because Massu eating is healing somehow. Sports is another thing I'd love to see him do more. Massu has this cute and awkward image on TV so it would be good to see his cool side more often too.

The other NEWS members have all more or less found their niches and doing something only they can do so I'd really want Massu do have that too.

paana playground giveaway 10 [happy birthday massu]

I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore...
Bias: Tegoshige

Design Discussion:
I love Massu's personal style, I think it's really unique and interesting but stage outfits are different. I have very mixed feelings about them. Some I like and some just baffle me. But the thing is I could never quite get this idol thing where stage outfits have to look like a Christmas tree.

If we talk about the tour, I think my favourite set was the Utsukon outfits, especially the white ones - they were very idol-like and yet somehow unique and more stylish than most Johnnys outfits. The 2013 tour set was more elaborate but not necessarily better in my opinion. I quite like the red set and the black and white ones inspired by ninjas apparently. The jacket with coloured balls in them were kind of odd but really memorable. The White tour costumes are my least liked, they're just too gaudy. Except the ones with the military jacket and plaid bottom. Those were great.

 photo 016a.jpg

Among the single outfits I also quite like the Mr. White ones, they're simple but cool. I kinda liked Kaguya ones until they added a lot of really redundant add-on on them like red boas on the shoulder. Guess you're not a Johnnys until you put some feather on it. ChumChum was a real disappointment costume-wise. I like Tegoshi's actually but not the rest and I think Massu's was the worst, really. It's like he just got informed there was an Indian-themed party in an hour and he put on whatever he found in his closet.

What I want to see more of:
Something a little more mature, I guess. A lot of the costumes are baggy and look very childish. Which is perfectly fine for Massu but looks odd on Koyama or Shige. I would also appreciate a bit more skin. I know Massu said they'll never wear Bambina outfits again but I can dream.
