Linkage! – Updated

Some stuff that [Tiara] and Jhameia linked to over the weekend/sleepy Monday Morning:

So… gender studies are useless, say some Harvard kids.

And apparently verbal consent must be denied for some young men to take a “no”… which can be ignored if the body language’s to their liking.

Fantastic fail on Metafiler about US-ians and their fail.

One more post I forgot to add: Apparently, Japan deserves another nuke because they have anime. The amount of fail is just…

And for today’s WIN post: Please to subscribe/get ideas from Steampunk Nusantara, especially if you be a fan/writer of Steampunk.

To all my sisters

Especially Silvy Sis, Aiko, Mika, and Neko dears, would you guys want anything from this site? It’s my colleague’s initiative with his GF. They’re having a 10% disc off their opening right now. ๐Ÿ˜€

I got the mostly-black and white version of the Dressy Jessy ([Joicy] thinks it makes me look squashed, will add pics later :P) but yeah! Let me know if you girls want anything from here.

[Nanowrimo 2009] Great stories

They say that when you find something good, share it with the world.

Well, I’m certainly sharing this. This is a story being written by a good friend of mine, Silicon Shaman, on LJ for Nanowrimo.

Here, read the first part of Chapter 1 in Paul Black’s life.

Good, you can now begin watching how he puts his evil plan (with kittens!) into action.

Happy cackling, evil geniuses, WrimoPersons, and geeks everywhere!

[Song/Lyrics] Sprinter- Kalafina

So I have a new earworm. It is called Kalafina’s Sprinter, which incidentally was used as the ending song for Kara no Kyokai.

Just a note: Romaji and English translations are from here. I took the Kanji from AnimeLyrics (deru, ren, iluna and whoever reads Japanese, are the translations accurate?)

Vocals: Kalafina
Lyrics: Kajiura Yuki
Composition: Kajiura Yuki
Album: Seventh Heaven

Romaji:
Kimi to deai
Kanawanu yume o mita
Sore wa tatta ichibyou de koeru eien

Iโ€™m calling kimi o
Mamotte agetakute
Nobashita yubi mo furueteru sono mama dakishimeta

Bokura ni dekiru koto wa tada, ikite irun da to
Chikara tsukiru made nasu sube naku sakebitsuzukeru, sore dake nanda
Kimi ni todoku? Boku ga todoku?
Zetsubou no amasa uchikudaite hashiridasun da ima sugu
Sekai no hate made

Iโ€™m calling tooku agaku boku no uta ga
Kimi no hoho o sora ni mukeraretara
Hitori ja naiโ€ฆ

Mukidashi no hontou ga konna karakuri no kokoro ni mo
Afuredasu hodo tsumatte itan da

Hikari no hayasa de kiete yuku kinou e te o futte
Doko made mo akarui sabaku o
Ima, bokura wa toki o keri hashiru

Kaze ni mukai yabureta hata o furi
Kimi no inai michi o boku wa boku no tame
Yukun daโ€ฆ โ€ฆ
Sekai no hate madeโ€ฆ โ€ฆ

Kimi ni aitai
Kimi ga koishii
Kimi ni aitai
Kimi ga itoshii

Iโ€™m calling boku ga koko ni ita akashi wa
Ima mo kitto kimi no hitomi no naka

Iโ€™m calling tojiru rasen ni sakaratte
Naite sakende kiete yuku bokura wa

Ikite, irun da
Koko ni, irun daโ€ฆ โ€ฆ
