So, the plans are made and the flights are booked - I’m going to be spending six weeks in Shanghai starting November 3rd! It’s my first time traveling overseas, so naturally i chose the easiest place to adjust to - the largest city proper in the world, where they speak a language I’m totally unfamiliar with on the other side of the world. It’ll be fun!

So many thanks to my Uncle Andrew who’s been helping me set this up, and will be letting me stay with him during the time there. I’m so excited to be finally traveling out there. There’s still a lot of prep to do, but I can hardly wait!

Take a look at this.  This is /a/’s character chart for One Piece right now, keeping track of the current arc.  Notice how I said “the current arc”.  This isn’t a chart for the whole manga, or even for the last few years’s progress.  This is the chart for this one arc.  One.  Single.  Arc.

I love this manga SO MUCH.

I think I’m going to finish watching Kill la Kill for the same reason I finished reading the Twilight series all those years ago:

even though from what I’ve seen so far it’s really shitty, I want to at least try to understand what all the hype is about. And even if I still hate it, at least I’ll be able to have a fully informed opinion about it so no one can just brush it off as “well you just haven’t seen the whole thing”. 

I did this with Final Fantasy 13 over the same criticism.

I’m never getting those 30 hours of soul-crushingly bad video game back.

Kudos for your bravery, though.

So I was bored and wanted to play a tabletop game based on the Fallout games.  I found some rules online and thought that they were way too complicated - like 1000 people were trying to write the rules and no one was on the same page.  So I decided to try and clean it up and make it kinda playable.

Two weeks later

Oh dear.

On the plus side, in the first play test, my brother in law blew up himself and my cousin with like 10 frag grenades at once so he could take the Deathclaws i had them against down with him.  WORTH IT.

There’s two or three feet of snow, including close to five at the snow bank at the street (thanks plows!) and its STILL FRIGGIN SNOWING. It just took me 20 minutes to open my goddamn door.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, MASSACHUSETTS! HOPE YOU LIKE THE DEVIL’S DANDRUFF!

Felt sick and nauseous all morning, got sent home from work early, and tried to heal up with a strict diet of soup, sleep and hot jasmine tea. Did great until my mother comes with Girl Scout Cookies.

"Who wants Tagalongs?"

So I’m pretty sure that diet plan won’t be working.

Since the Grammys there’s been a sudden spike of activity within the Daft Punk fandom and a whole bunch of new fans interested in the work of this phenomenal duo! Which is really really cool!!!! But being a new fan can be kinda confusing, especially if you’re a new fan of a couple of artists who have not only been around for about 20 years, but are constantly switching things up as they go. So, that in mind, I decided to put together a big masterpost of all the stuff you should check out as a new Daft Punk fan! Enjoy~!

So Why The Robot Helmets?

          △ Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel  de Homem-Christo were human through the release of their first album, up until 1999. As the story goes, in Thomas’s words:  We did not choose to become robots. There was an accident in our studio. We were working on our sampler, and at exactly 9:09 am on September 9, 1999, it exploded. When we regained consciousness, we discovered that we had become robots.” And that’s been the shtick ever since.

Music:

          Homework - Daft Punk’s first album, arguably the most influential
         
Alive 1997 - A live (ahaha) album, consisting of remixes from Homework
         
Discovery - The second studio album and DP’s first album as robots, it’s really pop and fun~
         
Daft Club - A remix album (I highly recommend giving “Aerodynamite” a listen)
         
Human After All - The third studio album, it’s a little more “rock” than the others, but some of my personal favorites come from this album
         
Human After All: Remixes - Pretty self explanatory, a remix album. 
         
Musique. Vol 1 - A compilation album.
          Alive 2007 - Another live album, it’s really great trust me
         
Tron: Legacy OST - Daft Punk scored the soundtrack for Tron:Legacy (and did a fantastic job)
         
Tron: Legacy Reconfigured - Another remix album
         
Random Access Memories - The album you’ve probably been hearing about for days! Daft Punk’s fourth and most recent studio album.

Films:

          △ D.A.F.T. A Story About Dogs, Androids, Firemen, and Tomatoes - Less a film with a plot and more a series of music videos from the album Homework broken up by some really neat behind the scenes clips (in other words, don’t worry if none of it fits together like an average movie- it isn’t supposed to).
          Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem - An approx. hour long anime film set to the album Discovery, and collaboration with Leiji Matsumoto
          Electroma - A dialogueless film that started out as a music video for the track Human After All and evolved into a full length film (fun fact: Thomas and Guy-Man don’t play their robot alter egos in this film, they chose instead to focus on their work behind the camera and hire actors).

Music Videos:

          Da Funk - This video is in D.A.F.T., but here it is by itself.
          △ Around the World - This video is in D.A.F.T., but here it is by itself.
         
Burnin - This video is in D.A.F.T., but here it is by itself.
         
Revolution 909 - This video is in D.A.F.T., but here it is by itself.
         
Fresh - This video is in D.A.F.T., but here it is by itself.
         
Prime Time of Your Life - Eating Disorder/Suicide/Gore content warning!!! A great video, but I wouldn’t want you to go into something so heavy without being aware of it first.
          △ Robot Rock - Those super flashy shines certainly go back before RAM c;
          △ Technologic - A really fascinating video (if a bit unnerving)
          △ Derezzed - Very, very Tron
          △ Instant Crush - A gr8 video for a gr8 song
          △ Lose Yourself to Dance - There’s those shines and sparkles again c;

Interviews:

          △ Part One and Part Two of my personal favorite Discovery era interviews
          △ Swedish interview, though all the important parts are in English
          △ More an interview with Leiji Matsumoto than Daft Punk, but they are in it and it talks extensively about Interstella
          △ Discovery radio interview
          △ Another Discovery centric radio interview
          △ Interview with Peter Tong
          △ NPR Music interview
          △ TripleJ radio interview
          △ Zane Lowe interview
          △ BPM radio Interview
          △ Xfm radio interview
          △ Lauren Laverne interview
   (Of course this isn’t all of their interviews, but it’s a good place to start!)

Other Stuff:

          △ Vogue Diaries - A cute clip of Thomas and Guy-Man along with Karlie Kloss
          △ Music Sounds Better With You - The one song from Thomas Bangalter’s side project, Stardust
          △ A Collaborative History With Daft Punk - A pretty rad article on, you guessed it, Daft Punk’s collaborations.
          △ Daft Punk: behind the Helmets - a clip on the design process and influences for those iconic helmets (really really cool!!)
         
The Daft Club - A really rad fan site, great for news updates, info, etc.
          △ 2008 Grammys
          △ 2014 Grammys- just in case you missed it c;
          △ Gap Commercial - exactly what it sounds like
          △ Toonami ads

(I’m sure there’s something I forgot, so feel free to add things as you see fit uwu)

This was the most hype shit ever. I can’t believe he made it all the way to Mike this year during his blindfolded run. That’s just downright amazing.

What’s that?  Oh, nothing big.  Just a guy playing through one of the most difficult games ever made, and getting to the end boss, WITHOUT USING HIS FUCKING EYES.

I’m pretty sure that qualifies as wizard shit right there.
