Y'all know I don't really do make-up posts, but a friend just came home from a few months in Japan and got me a couple of eyeliners from the Sailor Moon Miracle Romance Make-up Line as omiyage and I just *had* to squee over it. These were part of the line that Bandai released, along with pressed powder and … Continue reading Sailor Moon Miracle Romance Eyeliners OMG!
Or not. Whatever. I aincho mommah. I recently gave up on the New52. The titles I used to pull started out strong, but they've just gotten so bleh. I tried to stick with Wonder Woman, but I could only justify buying it solely for Cliff Chiang's art for so long. On to awesome non-superhero comics … Continue reading Awesome Comics You Should Be Reading
Let's get two things out of the way first: I am a huge fan of the books, and no, I don't expect movie adaptations to be 100% faithful. That being said, this movie was terrible. I don't understand how you can fuck this up. You've got great source material and a great cast (Nathan Fillion, … Continue reading Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters
Year One, based on the comic by Frank Miller, recounts the beginnings of Bruce Wayne taking up the cowl and Jim Gordon's career with the Gotham City Police Department. I'm kind of ambivilent about Year One. While it's a really faithful adaptation of the comic (almost panel-for-panel, really) , I'm not digging the art direction. The … Continue reading Batman: Year One

As you may or may not have already read, I am not particularly convinced that the world is need of a new ThunderCats series. But in the interest of Science (yes, Science!), I decided to check out the first episode that premiered last Friday anyway. (Also because my previous rant about the announcement of the … Continue reading New ThunderCats Series – Episode 1
Circuses have always held a dear place in my heart. Probably the product of watching Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland and Dumbo just a little too often growing up. My parents took me to my first circus in Nepal in 1993, but my first encounter with Cirque du Soleil wasn't until Popular Mechanics for Kids featured Dralion in one of their episodes. So when they announced … Continue reading Varekai!

Mmmmm, boy. ♥ [photos from http://www.dailyotaku.com & tamfeels.blogspot.com] BECK is about these five guys --Chiba (Vocals), Koyuki (Vocals, Guitars), Ryusuke (Lead Guitars), Taira (Bass) … Continue reading BECK (2010)
Because GP called me out for being a Chris Hemsworth fangirl, here's my review of Thor. I'm team DC so not only do I know close to nothing about the Marvel universe, I am also not particularly interested in it. Truthfully , the only reason I went out to see Thor was because I wanted … Continue reading Thor
