At least we'll get more Haruhi in the year 2015.

Praise Kami-sama!

Here's something really kawaii for your Friday coffee break. No idea what the song is about, but I can't get enough of the girls doing the singing.

How did I find out about this group, Goose House? Did I get to this video on YouTube from following their OP on the anime, Your Lie in April? Didn't hear about them from there. Wasn't watching at the time. Didn't even know that they also did the ED for season 2 of Silver Spoon.

Perhaps I was searching YouTube for anime covers. But I did find one from other members of their collective.

Anywhoo, it's kawaii.

(PS. Megane!)

EDIT: Wrong fucking video...

I didn't write too many posts on this past baseball season. The ones I did write came towards the end of a pretty great season.

I should've written more from the start, but my laziness took over. It even took over at the bitter end with the dreams of postseason glory snuffed out in 4 meek games to the KC Royals.

After the ALCS, I wanted to write something to sum up the feeling of this magical season, but never got around to. I would need more than the terse sentences that this blog has been providing lately. I would need to put the elation and joy at going 14-2 in attendance of Orioles games. It was a lot of winning I saw this year. So much winning 96-66. The Orioles fans were the real winners. Thank you, Orioles!

Anyway, I wanted to post this video of Adam Jones's only highlight from the ALCS, the 2 run bomb to momentarily tie the game. I saw lots of baseball, and this was my favorite moment of the entire season. Yes, being there when Delmon Young won the ALDS game 2 with that double was amazing and unfathomable, but Jones first pitch swinging and clocking this pitch was just surprise summarized. And yet, I knew at that moment when he stepped to the plate, that it was going, going, gone. As soon as he hit the ball, I was up out of my seat and cheering a homerun as others waited for it the clear the left field fence. I knew, but I was still surprised.

And it was over after that. The game, the chance, the season.

I can't wait until next year.

Been pretty infatuated with this song by Scandal, a Japanese girl band. I just find it fascinating coming from josikosei. Let's all rock out!

I think the only thing awesome in this is the X-Wings. Tell me if there's anything else?

Usually, the annual Thanksgiving post is a list of things to be thankful for. At this stage of my blogging career, I can't even do that. I'll just keep it short and sweet like my last few posts: I'm thankful for being alive.

St. Vincent is standard indy movie fare. All the character beats were there: curmudgeon, beatific child, harried mother, lovable lady of the night. They even threw some thugs in that made no sense to the outcome of the movie.

It was okay. Better to watch Big Hero 6 all over again.

Big Hero 6 deserves to be as big a phenomenon as the last Disney animated movie, Frozen. Unfortunately, since this one's for the boys, I doubt it would create as big a splash in the American zeitgeist. The young princesses will dominate whereas the asian hero won't.

Disney did this one right. So did Marvel. They made a real diverse animated movie and they made a good one. The lead is an Asian. So is his dead brother. There's a black guy and two women. There's a white guy stoner. And they all are scientists. Except for the stoner white guy. This diversity hasn't been called out in the reviews, but it is cool to see more than white people, and in this instance asians, on the big screen.

The opening animated short was also fun too. I liked that it used cell-shading and didn't look like CG. It's a welcome relief to see a different style.

4 of 5 stars.

I have a problem with Christopher Nolan. Although I did enjoy Interstellar, I find him taking himself to serious at times. It makes it tough for me to judge his movies on their own merit.

Interstellar was decent, but if you think about it too long, holes start to pop into the story.
