"Inca Rose" from El Cazador

"Game of Love" by Daft Punk

They've both got the same feel. I'd like to do a mashup of them one day.

Noir / Re: "The Art of Drawing Manga" by Ben Krefta

Actually looking at the first picture again, it looks like her arm is broken and stuck at a slightly disturbing angle. And to be honest, I was quite miffed at this. I didn't pick up the book, but if he acknowledged the source material somewhere inside, I would feel better.

Noir / "The Art of Drawing Manga" by Ben Krefta

I came across this book in my local Barnes & Noble today and had to do a double-take. Does this image look familiar to you all? Just in case it doesn't, here's a quick reminder. I did a bit of quick Google-fu and found that this book was published back in 2003. I also came across another image, which seems like a more blatant ripoff of the Noir promo art. And then I found this one, which is a straight up copy-paste. Here's an album version if you want to compare them all.

So, what's up with that? Is there any copyright infrigement/plagiarism going on? Or what? Have you guys seen this/discussed this before? Just curious.

Also, hi everyone! :)

I got a classmate very interested in the Noir soundtrack! :D And he was already in love with Kalafina before we met!

ELDA TALUTA / Deciphering Yuki Kajiura's album "Fiction"
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:28:35 AM »
I've been listening to this album quite a lot lately, and while all of the songs are beautiful, I don't really understand the lyrics. Broken down into phrases, they make sense, but the overall narrative is lost on me. I thought it'd be nice to figure out what exactly Kajiura was trying to convey.

First up, "Key of the Twilight".

Come with me in the twilight of a summer night for awhile
Tell me of a story never ever told in the past

Take me back to the land
Where my yearnings were born
The key to open the door is in your hand
Now fly me there

Fanatics find their heaven in never ending storming wind
Auguries of destruction be a lullaby for rebirth

Consolations, be there
In my dreamland to come
The key to open the door is in your hand
Now take me there

I believe in fantasies invisible to me
In the land of misery I'm searchin' for the sign
To the door of mystery and dignity
I'm wandering down, and searchin' down the secret sun

Come with me in the twilight of a summer night for awhile
Tell me of a story never ever told in the past

Take me back to the land
Where my yearnings were born
The key to open the door is in your hand
Now take me there
to the land of twilight

Ugh, I had no idea this was a thing until now. I'm terribly excited, but also terribly sad that I can't afford this...

By the way, if you're up for it, could somebody upload the art book? I'd love to take a look at it (and cry a little).

I think it's time for a Grand Rewatch.

On the evening of Tuesday March 13, a 115,000 volt transformer caught fire in a building next to where I work. In order to combat the fire, officials had to cut power to a large sized grid, which extended to where I live (about a 15 minute walk from work). At exactly 1:47am on Friday March 16, FIFTY FOUR HOURS LATER, the power company FINALLY restored our power. It was a cold and miserable near-three days, but I and my Boston neighbors somehow made it out alive (but still freezing). I am beyond happy, there is no word to describe my joy. SWEET POWER!

I got the chance to work the midnight launch of Mass Effect 3 at one of the official Bioware launch parties! I got pics with the Art and Cinematic Directors as well as their autographs! Happy night! :D
