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. :D

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.

Love
Naoko

[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

I’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

I’m calling tooku agaku boku no uta ga
Kimi no hoho o sora ni mukeraretara
Hitori ja nai…

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 da… …
Sekai no hate made… …

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

I’m calling boku ga koko ni ita akashi wa
Ima mo kitto kimi no hitomi no naka

I’m calling tojiru rasen ni sakaratte
Naite sakende kiete yuku bokura wa

Ikite, irun da
Koko ni, irun da… …

Kanji:

君と出会い
叶わぬ夢を見た
それはたった一秒で越える永遠

I’m calling 君を
守ってあげたくて
伸ばした指も震えてるそのまま 抱きしめた

僕等に出来る事はただ、生きているんだと
力尽きるまで 成す術無く叫び続ける、それだけだから
君に届く? 僕が届く?
絶望の甘さ打ち砕いて走り出すんだ 今すぐ
螺旋(せかい)の果てまで

I’m calling 遠く足掻く僕の唄が
君の頬を空に向けられたら
独りじゃない……

剥き出しの真実(ほんとう)が こんなカラクリの心にも
溢れ出すほど詰まっていたんだ

光の早さで消えて行く昨日へ手を振って
何処までも明るい砂漠を
今、僕等は時を蹴り走る

風に向かい破れた旗を振り
君のいない道を 僕は僕の為
行くんだ……
螺旋(せかい)の果てまで………

君に会いたい
君が恋しい
君に会いたい
君が愛しい

I’m calling 僕がここに居た証は
今もきっと君の瞳の中

I’m calling 閉じる螺旋に逆らって
哭いて叫んで消えて行く僕等は

生きて、いるんだ
此所に、いるんだ……
