Because I'm mentally challenged and deleted my first "friends only" post by accident.

After not having enough Spheres broken in Fights Break Sphere, we watched several movies to try and get our fill of sword fighting violence:

Blade of the Immortal/13 AssassinsCollapse )

Unrelated to sword fighting violence, we also watched less violent movies.

Now You See Me 2/Oceans 8/It (2017)Collapse )

In terms of reading:

BooksCollapse )

After seven episodes, I decided to drop Legend of Fu Yao. Surprisingly, it's not because of the CGI gerbil.

More Martial Arts HogwartsCollapse )

Now I have to figure out what to watch next. I'm leaning towards My Queen to watch something with Ethan Ruan in it that's Taiwanese. But there's also:

* Ashi Girl - time traveling comedy. Pros are obviously that it's a Japanese drama and short.
* Ever Night - about fighting and revenge. Internet claims that the fight scenes are really good. I crave a good fight after watching so many fails. But it would also be good to have a break from xianxia dramas. It's also not done airing yet.
* Heavenly Sweetness Ash-Like Frost - fans of 3310, including my sister-in-law, all recommend it. But it would be good to have a break from xianxia dramas.
* Love Sandstorm - run-of-the-mill Taiwanese comedy. It's short so I'm leaning towards it.
* Warrior Baek Dong Soo - Internet also claims the fighting is good in it. But so far, I've yet to find a Korean drama I like and am hesitant to start one.

I should watch something short.

Over the weekend, we finished breaking spheres.

Is a rose by any other name...?Collapse )

And after hearing me complain about the lack of sphere breakage in this drama, Jabba went ahead and broke a Christmas ornament for me.

...mostly playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, of course!

So far, I'm liking it a lot more than Origins in terms of having the more engaging main story. They also structured the side quests much better so that they're actually not bad to complete plus I don't feel as bad turning down/not completing side quests. Those two main changes are enough for me to overlook the combat (still not great), sailing (still terrible), and super detailed RPG elements (there's just too much! - not a huge RPG person).

I made little progress in my subbing. It's good that I only have four more episodes to go because fatigue is setting in. At this point, I'm pretty sure I'll finish. But I'm definitely not at the pace I was when I started. Writing was also okay, although my reading has come to a halt thanks to sudoku. No more bedtime sudoku!

In drama news, we're reaching the end of Fights Break Sphere but you wouldn't know it by the pacing and the oddly misplaced mainland Chinese humor. I'm still in the beginning of Legend of Fu Yao but I'm getting mighty annoyed with the Goblet of Fire-like school competition. Let's get back to Ethan Ruan, his smirk face, and his CGI gerbil (I can't believe I look forward to that!). I don't care about wishy-washy senior brother and his hag junior sister story line at all.

I think I prefer Greek feta cheese to Bulgarian feta cheese. Greek is just creamier with a stronger taste. That is all.

After watching Rakshasa Street, I figure I'd watch something with Jiro Wang that's not dubbed so that ended up being Fabulous Boys, which is a remake of Korea's You're Beautiful. I never seen the original, but the internet keeps telling me the Taiwan version is the superior version (probably because it has Jiro Wang). Based on my experience with Korean dramas, I don't have a huge urge to watch the original, so I guess that everything worked out for the best.

Plot? What Plot?Collapse )

[Headbanging to |出神入化 - Fahrenheit]

I'm as free as a bird today! I'm pretty much all caught up and just doing what I have left slowly as to make an appearance of being busy. As such, I'm also catching up on the internet.

Today's internet outrage is the casting of an Asian women to play someone-someone in Harry Potter. Not being a huge Harry Potter fan, I don't really understand it. From what I gathered, the outrage is that Lord Voldemort - the villain and symbolism for racism/sexism/general basterdry - has under his evil control a snake that turns out to be an Asian woman because magic. The internet doesn't like that an Asian woman is playing the submissive snake person. In normal circumstances, I would maybe agree. But in this case, I don't really see what the big deal is. I mean, based on character traits, that seems actually very in-character for Lord Voldemort to subjugate someone he would see as the inferior race since he's established to be racist. So...¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Maybe chill out and see how the character and story turn out before becoming outraged? But internet, so can't expect too much out of them.

We've also started watching Fights Break Sphere, or, if you like less awkward titles, Battle Through the Heavens. The drama is good in that the colors look nice and I like fight-y stories. But the martial arts Hogwarts storyline is already getting incredibly boring. When are people going to start fighting and breaking stuff?

I'm also watching Fabulous Boys all by my lonesome with my drama-watching cat. The girl gets on my nerves with her fidgety nervousness. I mean, I guess it's because she's a nun living with three guys. But, man, stop being so fidgety! And surprisingly (for drama), two out of three guys already know she's not their new male band mate. Where's the drama, then?
