This morning/last night I dreamt about the cheerleading outfits from the last ep of Lucky Star, except in the dream they were all subtly different/unique.. only one of them had a star on, I think it was Tsukasa's? And I was like "woah they ARE all different, how.. how have I never noticed this before?? wtf is wrong with me". Heh.

been playing Diner Dash 2 and I just got to the last/secret level and OMG the formal outfits!! So cute, aaaaa! I keep getting distracted by how adorable they are, haha. This game is super challenging, though, wow :O I think some parts are even more challenging than the first game. I'm glad I picked it up ^^ found a super cheap copy of it on eBay, haha.

Caught up again w/ Harvey Beaks.. it's so hard to find the newer eps online, lol. But I finally got round to seeing the last four eps :) so here's some thoughts on them..

"Jeremy: Defender of the Forest" was better than I expected! Not that I expected it to be bad, or anything, I just.. didn't really have any expectations for it either way? If that makes sense? I love how they just casually dropped the reveal that Jeremy is thousands of years old, and no one reacted to it XD that was great. Just "oh yeah well that was thousands of years ago.." "oh that's cool, carry on". XDD At first I thought he was exaggerating or something, but I guess not. Haha. The ending was pretty cute (and I can't be the only one who got Jeremy/Darktooth vibes, right? :p).

"Princess Harvey" was.. well, a bodyswap ep. :p which are kind of tiresome, but this one was actually surprisingly sweet. I really love how they didn't have their voices swap as well, instead they had the VAs imitate each other. That was awesome! If we HAVE to have bodyswap eps in practically every cartoon, I wish more of them would do that, instead of just swapping the voices over. Having the VAs imitate each other is more interesting, makes more sense, and is more fun imo ^_~ I bet they had fun recording this ep, haha.

Also I was literally saying JUST yesterday "I hope there's at least one more Princess/Claire moment before the show ends" and then what do you know, this ep is 90% Princess rambling about Claire. Hehehe. (Yeah, I ship it. I ship weird stuff, I know) There was that one line where Princess said something about Claire being her best friend, or something (in a Princess-y way, I mean), that was cuuute~ Also I love how in the beginning, when she was breaking stuff, she visibly reconsidered going after the gong. Like even she knew that was a line that wasn't to be crossed. XD Idk why but that bit was hilarious to me.

Then I managed to find this week's eps (well, last week's eps now, I guess), "The Split"/"The Dade". They.. weren't as good as I was expecting? I was excited to hear about a half-hour of Dade eps but idk. They WERE good, don't get me wrong! They just weren't quite on the same level as "Old Fashioned Dade"/"Why Are You Even Friends?"/"Wade is Cooler Than Dade", if that makes sense. Something about them just felt kinda "off", for some reason? I dunno what it was, I couldn't put my finger on it. Admittedly it was really late when I was watching them, so maybe I was just tired and that's why they didn't quite 'click' with me. I dunno. But I mean, they were good, don't get me wrong, I liked them! They're just not *favourites* of mine, is all.

the whole scene w/ the twins + Dade getting Highly Offended over everything the puppet "said" was hysterical, though. "Harvey isn't a goober!! He's a SWEET BOY!!!1" I love it XD those three are basically the Harvey Protection Squad, haha.

"The Dade" was pretty cute, it's nice to see all of Dade's siblings again. "You can order off the menu here?!" haha. Dade was more-or-less having a panic attack in that one scene, poor bb :< also the ending was sooo cute. I thought it'd end with another cute Dade/Harvey moment (which would've been fine, don't get me wrong) but then it ended with cute sibling fluff instead. Which is always nice ^__^ Fluff is nice.

omg this WBB promo is so cute...

I have... mixed feelings about the thought of new eps every weekday (it's the Stevennuke all over again ;A;) but w/e, new eps are new eps, can't complain. XD

Hey, Lucy's back! I was wondering just earlier on if she was going to show up again or not. And Charlie!! :D eeeeee I'm so excited. I needed good news tonight.

Also I have no idea what's going on here but I already love it:

Looking through Pokemon ship names and man there are some crazy ones. I guess with THIS MANY ships, you've gotta get creative with the names, but still.. ^^;

Y'know, I coined the name "Shikashipping". People wanted a ship name for it and I was semi-active in the community at that time, so what the hell. I don't ship it XD half the time I need to look up what it even is. It's Gary/Paul/Dawn/Misty. I suggested Shika after their Japanese names - SHIgeru/SHInji/HiKAri/KAsumi. I remember thinking "hmm, well what do these have in common.." and when I noticed the dudes both had "shi" and the girls both had "ka" in their names, I figured it was worth suggesting. No one else suggested a name so it became the ~*official*~ ship name. Hahaha.

checking through stuff now that I have access to a DVD player again:

- So I was watching a CITV airing of Adventure Time's "Jermaine" a while ago and I noticed some edits that I hadn't noticed before, quite a few edits, in fact. I was like "mehh, it was probably edited on the original airing and I just missed it", even though there were one or two edits where I was like "huh, it's weird that I'd miss that, though". I just checked my recording of the CN UK airing and yup, the CITV airing DID have some edits that weren't there originally! It aired on CITV like, a year later though, so I'm guessing CN UK are the ones that edited it. I don't often keep up with the reruns, though. -shrug- So now I've gotta watch out for it on CN UK and compare edits, hahaha. And by "watch out for it" I mean I'll check it when it's on, I'm not going out of my way to do it or anything XD maybe if they consistently showed the eps with synopses, but usually they just have a generic synopsis, so meh. I dunno, I could check the On Demand version of it, I guess. I'm pretty sure it's still up on there. -shrug- We'll see. I am pretty sure these edits probably were made by CN UK, though, and they're not 'specifically' CITV edits. They've edited stuff out for reruns before, after all.. it's just surprising since this new version has SO MUCH edited out of it. @__@; Good thing I caught the CITV airing when I did, heh.
- Checking through all my Chowder recordings, turns out I'm only missing ~27 end tags. (I say "~27" since I only did a quick count, I might have miscounted). That's less than I thought I'd be missing, haha. I kinda want to try and get them all.. I should've decided this when they were still showing the credits on the TV, haha. (yup, Chowder is still airing over here, on Boomerang) Looks like some eps are on On Demand, at least, so I'll check them out later. Also the credits end tags for Chowder are just... so cute... I never paid them a lot of attention but aaaa they really are adorable. Especially the ones with Panini, hehe.
- So the reason we realized the old DVD player had finally "had it", was when it seemingly ate an AT disc I was recording. (I'd recorded 15 eps onto it, so about 2 and a half hour's worth) It just wouldn't play it at all, it said it was an "invalid disc" or whatever. So I assumed it was screwed up, but hung onto it just in case. I checked it on the new recorder and.. it works. o_O So now I'm not sure WHAT to do with it. My instinct is just to re-record it anyway - it screwed up once, who's to say it won't do it again? - but on the other hand, 2.5 hours.. @_@; I need to record SOMEthing soon, we're running out of space on the SkyBox, so.. I'll decide sooner or later.

What a nerdy post.checking through stuff now that I have access to a DVD player again:

man, I was rewatching "Hot Diggity Doom" earlier on since it premiered on CITV today, and I wanted to post something about but now I can't remember what it was -_- gah. Well I still love that ep, anyway, haha.

I think it's interesting how PB obviously recognizes Toronto in that ep - "You're a dillweed, you're a dillweed's secretary, and you're probably some dillweed that I've never even met!". Going off how she specifies that she's "never even met" Mr. X (Orgalorg in disguise), and how she's aware that Toronto is KOO's "secretary" (I LOVE how that's how she describes him XD), we can logically conclude that she must have met Toronto at least once before this ep (or she was previously aware of his existence, at the least). Ahhh, I want to know more about their backstory.. when Toronto and King of Ooo started working together, and so on... I still think that Toronto was around in "Apple Wedding" and he just didn't debut until "Gold Stars", it doesn't make sense to me that he'd start hanging around KOO just before "Gold Stars" happened. Like, what would be in it for him? I dunno, I don't want to ramble on about it atm, but to me it seems like there's _some_ reason why those two stuck together for so long. Heck, we don't even know why they separated; it could be that Toronto doesn't even know that King of Ooo's still alive, even. I can totally imagine KOO just running for it without thinking about Toronto, hahaha. Just getting the fuck out of there and then ten hours later "where the hell is Toronto? ..oh yeah right, I left him behind. whoops". haha, well of course I can picture it, I wrote a fanfic about that. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN aaaaand I'm rambling, moving on.. XD

I love that noise Finn makes when "Mr. X" pulls the gun on him and Jake as well, haha. The kind of WOAHAOH noise, hahaha. I LOVE IT and Orgalorg's weird little leitmotif, and the reveal, and just. aaaa. I like the dramatic shot of his disguise falling away. Huh, come to think of it, it kinda reminds me of that dramatic shot of Simon's cracked glasses near the end of "Simon and Marcy".. a little bit.. prolly just a coincidence, but still. Ramble ramble ramble. I like how they kept the ref to "The Tower" in over here, even though that ep was banned over here. haha. I wonder how all the dubs that dubbed off the UK version handled that line, come to think of it :O I wonder if they translated it accurately or if they changed it to something that wasn't a reference to a banned ep. That's a really interesting thought, now I come to think of it. Wow. I'd look up some dubs of that bit (I HAVE looked up dubs of that ep before but I never thought about this line before) but I don't understand other languages, so I wouldn't be any better off ^^; Still.. I wonder how they handled that :O hmmm. I mean, it's a throwaway enough line that it'd be easy enough to change to something else...

In non-AT related news, I was watching Chowder the other day (it was on the TV so why not) and it was "A Faire to Remember", and a) I forgot how much I love that ep, and b) I forgot how fucking hilariously snipey Panini is to Marmalade at the end, it's awesome. Man, I've never had any strong feelings on Marmalade, and I never really shipped her and Ceviche (wasn't surprised to find out that they hooked up afterwards, though; I had always kinda figured that would've been the case, if they'd shown up in the finale), but I'm kind of in love with the idea of her still being like that when they're both adults. All passive aggressive and whatnot, and Marmalade just being sort of confused but still friendly towards her XD Ceviche just all "uh hey Chowder, any idea why Panini's like that w/ my wife?" "haha well you know what she's like" "yeah *w* she's so cool..." "...ANYWAY" hahahaha. I love thinking about older!Chowder and co. The next generation. hehehe. I'd write a fanfic if I thought I'd be able to pull it off, but I'm no good at episodic fics and that's what I'd want it to be. I just like thinking about it, I guess XD it's fun. I wish we'd seen more Chowder/Ceviche interaction in the show. They do seem to like each other in general (in that ep there's the bit that's like "hey Chowder wanna hang out with me all day?" "SURE OKAY :D"), but hmmm.

I wonder about Ceviche and Gorgonzola, too! In "The Dinner Theatre" there's that bit where Gorgonzola's like "also, we don't like you" to Chowder - "we" as in "him and Ceviche" - and I think about that line a lot. Like, obviously it doesn't seem to be true (Ceviche seems to be cool w/ Chowder, which is super sweet if you think about it - he could easily see him as a ~*rival*~ since he likes Panini and she's only interested in Chowder, but nope, he doesn't hold a grudge against him at all. Ceviche's so cute ^^), but I just wonder why he included Ceviche in that at all :o Like, are him and Ceviche friends? Does Gorgonzola CONSIDER Ceviche a friend?? (They're different things!) Was he just saying it without thinking, or like, was it a "this guy is conveniently here and he probably won't protest so I'll just say he backs me up, why not" sort of thing? If that makes sense? I'm overthinking things, I know, but it's fun X3

Gotta admit, I kinda ship Ceviche/Gorgonzola, a little bit.. I didn't use to! But all the cute-as-hell Japanese fanart converted me. XD Although I think most of the Japanese fans draw Ceviche as a girl (apparently he was even more gender ambiguous in the JP dub?), but still..

While we're talking about cartoon stuff, something I keep meaning to write. I love Pinky and The Brain eps where like, Pinky points out a reasonable flaw with Brain's plan, and Brain actually acknowledges him and agrees w/ him. Hell, it even happens in the first short, "Win Big"! And similarly, I love it when Pinky just says something silly wrt the plan and Brain still acknowledges it/agrees with it/w/e. Like that bit in one ep (I think it's the one w/ Pinky's family?), "Bagels with no cream cheese?!". hahaha. I love that line, I quote it a lot. Idk why, even, it just kinda stuck with me XD I dunno, I just... really love those two.. I love how the show is built around their relationship.. ;A;

Also unrelatedly, while I'm nattering on about random shit that's on my mind, I love couples/ships that are like "I love you and I have no idea WHY, cause you're not exactly much of a catch [or w/e], but I just really like you?? For some reason???". If that makes sense, haha.

I should shut up and go to bed already, hahaha. There's a WBB marathon over here tomorrow.. I should check when it starts.. they're showing "Captain Craboo"! :> They've been showing new eps all this week too, haha. Looks like they're showing new eps all next week, too. It's nice, it's been a while since there's been any WBB premieres over here. I need to tape some stuff soon, that reminds me..

OH YEAH, speaking of WBB, "Chicken and Waffles" aired over here yesterday (16th) and OH GOD I LOVE THAT EPISODE. aaaaaaa. I love the cat cafe scene, it's so precious. Well the whole episode is precious, but that bit is extra cute. Like, Charlie is so terrified of people that he's hiding behind Panda, which is cute in and of itself (since he's so much taller than Panda XD). But then the SECOND Panda says he's allergic to cats, Charlie IMMEDIATELY steps forward and pushes the cat out of the way. He's terrified of people and he KNOWS that he'll have to come face-to-face with someone if he moves in front of Panda, but Panda's allergic to cats and that's more important. And then he moves Panda over to the window, away from the cats (well, so he thinks ^^; He tried!) and out of harm's way, and is all "don't worry about it, you just sit here, *I'll* ask for directions". And he's fucking terrified of people. But he doesn't even consider it, in that bit. Panda's in danger, so he snaps into action without another thought. I just.. asdfgyhjukip[.

I mean, the whole ep's like that, of course. But that bit in particular just kills me. Panda/Charlie in general kills me ;_; I love how Charlie always does whatever Panda wants, always puts him first, even in spite of his fears. Hell, he does that with all the bears, but especially with Panda. aaaaaaaaaaaa they're so cuuute.

Okay, okay, NOW I'll shut up, I swear ^^;;;

Although I haven't attempted to draw his legs yet ^^;;;) and I didn't notice before that bb!Moff had wings. :O I did notice he didn't usually have them, I was wondering about that.. wonder why he doesn't have them any more. :o I wonder if that'll get brought up in the show ever.

I friggin' love how Lucky Star Douga Urakumikyoku has the UFO catcher music (Geeyan de Catch da ne) and Tsukasa's recorder practice music in there

It's awesome

(hell, I love the whole thing - especially how they got in the char themes that were inexplicably ignored in the official Kumiyoku, i.e. Misao/Ayano, Yui/Kuroi-sensei, Sojiro - but those two tracks' presence in particular is awesome, haha. Well, that and "100%? Nai, Nai, Nai", since that's one of my favourite Lucky Star songs. And the transition into "Saidai Seichi Carnival" is great too, and.. /ramble)
