truth-seekers update / early rise / living hell rising

April 30, 2003

I’ve started work on a separate webpage for the Truth-Seekers stories at:

Check it out if you’d like. I’m working on making it as if the main characters are actually in control of the site and all of the events in the stories are true. I got a little further in the current story. Maybe I’ll finish it by the end of the week, then copy it into my computer to put it online.

Damnit. I have to get up early tomorrow. It’s the first of the month: check day. And my dad’s getting more food stamps. So I must get up a bit earlier.

Great. I went into the living room feeling accomplished just now because of my new webpage, and my dad had to drag me through the mud. He had to explain how if he pays the cable bill, the power would turn off and vice versa, and how he thought he would be working by now… Now I only feel sucky as hell. Thanks a lot.

See ya.


Well…at least I have something to look forward to…

within this shell / lost love

April 30, 2003

I hate it when the littlest things depress me. But it might be that there’s so many little things. Too many. It’s overbearing. They all join to make my life a living hell. And that is why I buy media. To blind myself from my terrible life with a shell of DVDs, TV, music and more. And that is why I chose the title Within This Shell for my LJ.

I really like this girl I know online. We’ve known each other since my very first steps onto the Internet in Fall 1998. I want to form something between us, like we used to have years ago. But she’s changed and grown up since then. She doesn’t want that anymore. I feel abandoned, thrown aside… useless


boring bits

April 29, 2003

Nothing else happened today. My life is quite boring.

This has to be my favorite Scary Movie 3 teaser poster yet. I am so looking forward to this movie.

Now I’m just surfing on some websites… OMG! *runs out the front door*

media buys 4/29

April 29, 2003

NOTHING! Yup, a second Tuesday in a row with no media buys. I was thinking of getting today’s new release of the Mr Bean: The Whole Bean box set, until I heard some scenes have been cut. And I’ll probably be getting the new Tomb Raider PS2 game eventually too. Here’s what I’m looking forward to in May 2003:

5/06- “Catch Me If You Can (Widescreen)” DVD
5/06- “RahXephon – Orchestration Two: Tonal Pattern” (anime) DVD
5/13- “The X-Files: The Complete Seventh Season” DVD Set
5/20- “Dark Angel: The Complete First Season” DVD Set
5/20- “Pursuit Of Happiness” DVD [with Amy Jo Johnson, original Pink Ranger…in her first 5sec nude scene]
5/27- “The Mothman Prophecies (2-Disc Special Edition)” DVD
5/27- “A Guy Thing” DVD [with free admission to Legally Blonde 2]
5/27- “Good Burger” DVD

Well, those are the definite buys anyway…

I also just heard about Ratchet and Clank 2 being released on PS2 this November. The actual title is Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando and according to, it will be more RPG-esque. The first game is already one my favorites on PS2. I can’t wait to get this one!

See ya.


April 29, 2003

My dad went to this temp agency..thing. No one else will hire him. And he’s only a few months away from legal retirement with social security. …Then, he’ll be home all the time… *scream*

Maybe I should quit trying to come up with somewhat-interesting crap to entry about and go watch a movie instead. See ya.

my pc sux

April 29, 2003

Fuck. This computer just keeps getting worse and worse.

I would really like to back up my important files to CD just in case. But I have no CD burner and can’t really afford one right now either. I have to remember to open more tripod accounts tomorrow to store my important (and rare) mp3s.

Ugh. And suddenly it’s almost 3am.

I think I’ll listen to a few more mp3s then finally go to bed. I just hope this piece of crap doesn’t explode while I sleep.

See ya.

mostly press releases…

April 28, 2003

Oh look, some anime press releases:




HOUSTON, April 28, 2003—ADV Films today announced formally that the firm will release the Director’s Cut of the final six episodes of the enormously influential anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion.” These Director’s Cut episodes include additional footage, never before released in the U.S. ADV Films expects to release the Director’s Cut in two three-episode DVD volumes; each volume will include both the extended Director’s Cut versions and the original versions of the episodes.

ADV Films Co-Founder and Senior Producer Matt Greenfield produced ADV Films’ original release of “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” and he is at the helm of the firm’s Director’s Cut release as well. “It’s very exciting to be working on ‘Evangelion’ again after so many years,” said Greenfield. “The release of the original series was a pivotal moment in the development of the North American anime market, and we’re very eager to see how fans will react to the revisions and refinements the creators have made to their original vision.

“By including both the original and revised episodes,” continued Greenfield, “we’ve made it possible for Eva-philes to get an inside look at the directorial decisions that went into the creation of one of anime’s most brilliant and original series. If you’ve ever wondered what Eva’s really all about, these new collections will get you closer than you’ve ever been before.”

Release Plans
ADV Films has not yet announced release dates for “Neon Genesis Evangelion: Director’s Cut” (note: this is a working title only).




HOUSTON, April 28, 2003—ADV Films today announced the acquisition of the rights to release the hit 25-episode anime series “Final Fantasy: Unlimited” on home video. ADV plans an Anime Network™ debut followed by a DVD-only release for the fantasy/adventure title, companion to the acclaimed “Final Fantasy” series of role-playing video games.

Chief director for the anime “Final Fantasy: Unlimited” is Mahiro Maeda, one of the most respected anime directors in Japan. Maeda was recently hand-picked by the producers of “The Animatrix,” the upcoming anime side project based on the hit “The Matrix” film franchise, to direct two of the animated shorts featured in the project.

“Final Fantasy: Unlimited” is produced by SQUARE, TV Tokyo (“NOIR”) and Dentsu (“Princess Mononoke,” “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex”), with animation produced by Gonzo Digimation, animators of “Hellsing,” “Full Metal Panic!” and several more of anime’s most popular recent titles.

About “Final Fantasy: Unlimited”
“Final Fantasy: Unlimited” is the story of the warrior Kaze, the enigmatic Lisa and a pair of twin children, Ai and Yuh, who meet them as they search bravely for their missing parents. Taking place in a mysterious world, accessed only by an enchanted subway, “Final Fantasy: Unlimited” is packed with monsters, mystery, intrigue, beautiful animation and a plot that twists and turns and doubles back on itself in the truest anime style.

ADV Films leadership is pleased with the acquisition, and expects strong sales for the title. “’Final Fantasy: Unlimited’ arrives with excellent title recognition from the video game, and extensive U.S. fan interest as well,” said ADV Films President, CEO and Co-Founder John Ledford. “We’re excited to be bringing it to the U.S. market.”

Release Plans
ADV Films has not yet announced specific release dates for the title, but Ledford says he expects a broadcast debut in late summer and home video release before the end of September 2003.

I hope ADV releases the new Evangelion DVDs soon. I don’t want to wait over a year like I had to for the two movies.

My dad failed some test to be hired for the job I thought he had been hired for. So he wasn’t hired. 😦

See ya.

ultimate rangers review / X2

April 28, 2003

First up, check out this (very negative) review for the Best of the Power Rangers: The Ultimate Rangers DVD at DVDTalk. Grr. The reviewer gave three stars to the Pokemon 4Ever DVD, yet gave only one to our beloved Power Rangers DVD. There’s got to be something wrong in his head…

Anyway, not much going on here. My dad has to move my aunt into this trailer or something on Saturday, so I probably won’t be able to go see X2: X-Men United (with my free ticket from the X-Men 1.5 DVD). At least not that day. Maybe we could go Sunday, since my dad doesn’t go to church anymore. Hmm.

All right. Passions is on. It’s so crappy without the supernaturalness. See ya.

Damnit. I’m still up.

April 28, 2003

So I decided to add a sex scene to Truth-Seekers: “Lost Origins” because I enjoy writing them… and it’s going to become important in the storyline down the road. You’ll, read. Eventually.

Ha. I think my dad only went to church in the evening was because of some free meal. And so now he says he won’t be going anymore. I hope this works better than the times he tried to stop smoking…

Well, I’m gonna go sleep now. See ya.
