Reminiscing Monday #22: Another Darling Of Mine.

As always, Reminising Monday is a section in which i talk about Books, Shows and Movies (and this time a musician and actor) i’ve read/seen (listened to/watched) a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

And This Time I’ll Be Talking About; just a minute before we get into it … let’s explain a little…

You know how these days everything is Kpop this, Kpop that?

Well, back in my day and my life it was Jrock this, Jrock that (sometimes it was Jpop too).

If you don’t know what Kpop is, well, basically it’s a social phenomena conformed by Korean singers. A lot of groups, boy bands, girls bands, and especially BTS.

If you are wonder what Jrock is, well, it’s basically the same but from Japan.

As the abid fan of Japanse things as i am and i already showed talking about anime, it was just a matter of time until i started listening to Japanese music, and i mean not only openings and endings from anime. I got into it, a lot. I got into Jrock mostly and Visual Kei especially.

Visual kei (Japanese: ヴィジュアル系) is a movement among Japanese musicians, that is characterized by the use of varying levels of make-up, elaborate hair styles and flamboyant costumes, often, but not always, coupled with androgynous aesthetics, similar to Western glam rock. [wikipedia].

JP-Rock Lyrics: MALICE MIZER - au revoir

Choose your poison… cute adorakable characters, dark freaks, they had it all.

I chose my poison, as i said already my favorite band is X-Japan. But as i was looking for more glam i found once a very peculiar band, or more like a peculiar person.

Due Le Quartz

You can see these guys are Visual Kei material. Well, as i was listening to them and looking for more interesting photos of them i just fell for one of them.

雅-MIYAVI-
太陽ニ殺サレタ, Dué le quartz | Quartz, Art, Movie posters

Miyavi, or as he was known back in the day Miyabi. I just fell hard for him. And yeah, it’s a him.

Miyavi has been one of my favorite artists for a very long time now. Let’s say i started listening to his solo music (Due Le Quartz was disbanded a long time ago) when i was about 13 years old, which makes it about more than half my life.

Miyavi was the first solo Japanese artist i heard for the sake of it, non anime related and i gotta admit he had my heart just from listening to his guitar in Due Le Quartz.

There’s something about him, to this day i just cannot shake him off my heart or my mind.

Ever since his days as a visual kei character he has changed a lot. I realize how much he sure has been through his life, although i only follow his career as a musician. I do know some personal stuff, like that he married and he has twins but i don’t care much about it. I care about his music. The music i never stopped loving.

Miyavi (Music) - TV Tropes

In my mind he is a kind of mentor (don’t even ask me why) but i feel he did a lot in his day (now he is almost 40). I know he may have been into some shady stuff but i don’t care. He is just this amazing musician his music i can’t stop listening to, his voice i never get tired of.

I love everything he does, from his music to his acting career. Yes, i even love him as Byakuya in the Bleach Live Action.

unleashthegeek on Twitter: "Miyavi as Kuchiki Byakuya in live-action  Bleach. Opens July 20.… "
Miyavi as Byakuya, because i mean he was born to portray him.

I never asked myself why i love the man so much. I just do… a lot.

There’s something about the way he moves, the way he speaks the way he takes over the world, as if he wants to eat it all. He made me want to so much. Yes, i do know this may be an obsession i have with him, but i just can’t stop. The man is so talented. I just can’t help it.

Am i saying to many times i love this man? Sorry, i just can’t help myself.

At this point listening to his music is like coming home.

Reminiscing Monday #21: X-Japan

;;;;;SACRILEGE;;;;;

I can’t believe i never made a Reminiscing Monday about X-Japan my favorite band of all time.

As always, Reminising Monday is a section in which i talk about Books, Shows and Movies (and this time a band) i’ve read/seen (listened to) a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

And This Time I’ll Be Talking About My One And Only:

EL BLOJ: X Japan

I remember the first time i heard a song by X-Japan perfectly. I was 9 years old, i just bought a magazine that came with a CD full of wallpapers and videos of different anime. One of the videos on the CD was the Trailer for the anime of X/1999 by Clamp. I remember the video a lot (let’s say it, i do love X by CLAMP – and CLAMP as a whole – a lot) but the thing that stayed with me the most was the song.

This is the exact video i saw that time.

The music was… exquisite. I was absolutely in love with it.

Yet, i had no ideawho they were or anyother song by them, but i was taken. I never forgot the song and never stopped listening to it.

Let’s jump a few years, i finally got an internet connection and i discovered the wonder of listening to japanese music. I even found a great website https://www.animelyrics.com/ where you could find any anime and their songs.

I knew the anime was called X/1999 so i looked it up there. It didn’t exist. But wait, there was an anime called X. I checked it. Nothing. But there were a few songs of the show there related. One of them called FOREVER LOVE. I checked it out and totally fell in love with it. So i wanted to listen to more music by that band.

What were the odds?

It was the same band from the trailer… THE trailer i fell in love with many years ago.

I found them.

I found X-Japan.

clockwise; Yoshiki, Toshi, Pata, Heath and Hide.

Obviously when i found them they were already broken up, but they had so much music to listen to. Also, Hide, my wonderful and favorite guitarist of all time was already gone by the time i met them.

But i´ve been listening to them since then, since that little trailer, and i don´t think i´ll ever stop loving them.

A few years ago i wrote about them on my blog, yeah, this isn´t the first time i’m talking here about them even if i said i didn’t talk about them before, i meant about how i met them. Their music found me and i found their music. I felt so blessed so many times.

I can’t express with words the way Yoshiki’s music makes me feel.

I know i met and knew about them after Hide was gone but i had and still have an immense love for him, and respect. When i was younger my dream was to visist Japan to pay my respects to him.

Since i’ve known about them and about Hide, they brought another guitarist, Sugizo, from Luna Sea.

I already explained part of my feelings about him becoming part of the band of my life. You can find it in the previous post made about them here.

I was very mad at Sugizo for a very long time. I was even madder at him for joining than i was at Hide for leaving. Now i know i have no right for neither of those feelings, but i still miss Hide. What a beautiful yet weird feeling longing for somebody you never met, for some who was gone when ypou heard for the first time about him.

But i miss him and think about him, always.

A while ago i was watching a documentary they made about Hide and Yoshiki talked there, he said for him X-Japan never ended, and so Hide is still part of it. He said that as long as h lives it will always feel that way and it completely broke me. I feel like Yoshiki misses Hide a lot, i’m sure he isn’t the only one.

X-Japan is a living and breathing legend even without Hide, it will always be.

X-Japan as of today left to right: Pata, Heath, Yoshiki, Toshi and Sugizo.

As far as my understanding goes, they are huge in Japan. Yoshiki is huge around th eorld being one of the most important compositors, the most important one from Japan. Let’s say Yoshiki is so important Disney + is making a documentary about him, coming out really soon.

They are my heart and my heart is them and nothing will ever take them away from me. They break up didn’t. Nothing will.

I’ll love them forever. This is a FOREVER LOVE.

Reminiscing Monday #20: Bleach

Once again i’m here with this section in which i’ll be talking about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

And This I’ll Be Talking About:

Archivo:Bleach logo anime.jpg - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

The other day i decided to take Bleach from my On-Hold list on MAL and finally finish watching the 366 episodes of this anime. It wasn’t by chance but because this year Bleach it is coming back to life to end the anime as the manga ended, or so i hope.

I remember the good times when Bleach was on. There was the trifecta, Bleach, Naruto and One Piece at the head, everyone fighting for which one was best.

Bleach has always been for me the best of the three. I don’t know. I love Naruto, and i’ll talk about it eventually but it never got to the level of love i had for Bleach.

There’s something about Ichigo Kurosaki i just don’t feel for Luffy or Naruto.

It’s true that i never finished the manga, mostly because i didn’t have the money to buy all the volumes, so i felt like a fraud and droped it, dreaming of the day it would come back to be an anime to watch the end.

I rememeber i started watching Bleach when it was still running, i was pretty behind because i started after episode 200 was out but hear me out, i eat up this anime, i would watch about 16 episodes per day every day. First, because i freaking loved it, and second becuase my crush at the time liked it. Sometimes i was stupid like that.

The fillers never bothered me, neither did in Naruto. I just loved the world so much, the characters. Byakuya, Toshiro, Ichigo, Rukia, Renji… I just adored every single character and i couldn’t put it down. Until one day, don’t know why i stopped watching it, maybe because i knew it was about to be ended and i just didn’t felt like wasting so much time if i wasn’t about to see it ending as it should.

But now it is coming back, and i’m so so happy.

Obviously through the years i checked out how did it end, because i couldn’t not know who ended up with who mostly… I didn’t check much on the story in hopes it may still surprise me one day and i really hope the day is almost here already and i’ll be mindblown because of what it is going to happen, which new characters will be appearing and how many superpowers will Ichigo have at the end of the story.

I gotta admit i doesn’t bother me the way the pairings ended, i was a bit surprised yes, but i didn’t mind… it can’t get worse than Naruto and Hinata in my opinion, so i don’t mind the final pairings. I do mind thou the people who hate the pairings and are willing to make their character cheat on their spouses just to be togethe when to be honest if they wanted they could divorce and be together.

I hate cheaters. But that’s just me.

As long as it has a good final boss, i don’t care much about anything else, that and my favorite shonen main character being alive at the end of the day. If he is.

I’m kidding i don’t remember a manga or anime where the main dies a definitive death, oh no… i do, never mind.

Will i ever read the whole manga? Look, if i were to only read Bleach i would. I wouldn’t mind buying 74 volumes of it (71 because i do own 3). There’s just so much manga i wanna read, i’m starting with shorter ones, just so i can finish them and buy more. If Bleach were the only manga i liked i would buy it for sure. Let’s say if i were to break my bank account for a manga at the moment would be only for Fushigi Yuugi.

So, i don’t know if i’ll ever finish reading Bleach as a manga, but i hope i get to watch the ending as an anime.

I think, i’ll be talking more about it when it comes back officially, but for the time being i just wanted to share my happiness with the fact that Bleach, one of my favorite anime of all time is coming back!

Which of the three anime is/was your favorite ? leave your comment down below!

Reminiscing Monday: Horror movies from my childhood.

When you are little you are very impresionable, and i remember that because of many horror movies that i won’t watch to this day because of that.

I gotta admit in my house horror movies weren’t allowed until i was about 10. Which doesn’t mean my stepdad wouldn’t watch them when we (my sister and i) were sleeping.

I remember waking up in the middle of the night wanting to go to the bathroom and having to cross the livingroom where my stepdad was watching A Nightmare on Elm Street. The scene was the one where blood is coming out of the bed.

I remember this because it made a number on my 8 years old mind. And i remember being scared of the movie for a very long time.

There was another time when my stepdad was watching Cape of Fear but i can’t pinpoint the scene i watched, also my stepdad is telling me that’s not a horror movie.

Then, when i was 9 for some reason i was allowed to enter the theatre and watch The Sixth Sense with my 12 years old sister and her friends. I have to say that one gave me nghtmares for quite a while.

So I don’t understand why my mom let me watch The Blair Witch Project a few months later.

Man, i loved the movie and watched it and rewatched it so many times when i was little, i even own a book that tells the whole myth. It’s awesome, but yet again i got scared for a while and was a fraid to go outside at night until i was about 12.

As i grew up, for some reason i decided i was brave enough to face my fears and by 13 i started watching all the essentials, the exorcist, ju – on, the ring, rec, the eye, saw, etc.

It was a difficult time and i wasn’t as ready as i thought. I was scared most nights and i was a hard time to try sleeping, but hey… i’m still here, so it wasn’t that bad after all, right?

Over the years i’ve watched a lot of horror movies, i always try to overcome my fear for them, so i keep on trying and trying and sometimes i won’t sleep fora few days but most of the times i don’t even think about them before i go to sleep.

Overall i think i have managed my fear for horror movies, and that’s why i’m watching a few this month to comment on them… i’d watched some new one i never saw and a few that left a mark on me for a long time, i just wanted to know if i’m still so scared as i was before because of them.

As i’m writing this before finishing all the movies i hope i managed and everything is okay with me.

I hope i’m still sleeping every night.

I mean, i do enjoy watching them, don’t worry. The adrenaline i get from watching horror movies has made me do a lot of stupid stuff over the years, but hey… i really really enjoy being scared.

The scariest thing to happen to in the last few years? Well, i visited the Edinburgh cemetery at night and i felt something touched my knee. That was pretty awesome.

So yeah, fear won’t really stop me, not anymre at least.

How about you? Which movies scared you when you were little? Which gave you nightmares? What is the scariest thing to happen to you?

Reminiscing Monday: AHS.

After reading became difficult for me, i started enjoying a lot watching tv. Well, not tv per se, but Netflix and Crunchyroll, you get the idea.

There are two kinds of tv shows i enjoy the most; comedy and horror.

Comedy is so easy going, you don’t have to think about anything, but with horror, i wish i could stop thinking.

As i’m a very impresionable person, watching horror tv shows it’s a whole experience for me. I get really scared if they do it right.

One tv show that fails to give me nightmares, although i wish it did is American Horror Story.

Sure, the show can make you feel at times a bit uncomfortable, but to this day it never gave me a true scare and i’ve been watching it since its very first episode. I got to admit i did not always finish the seasons, because i got bored. For example it took me three times to finally finish watching Murder House. I would just leave it unfinished when i hit episode 12. Yes, i got bored at the end … twice. I won’t complain though because Murder House, Coven and Apocalypse brought my favorite topic and character to the show; Michael Langdon.

Cody Fern as Michael Langdon in Apocaypse.

I don’t know what it is, maybe i grew accustumed of the plot twists by Ryan Murphy, but i gotta admit it hadn’t surprised me since season 3.

Sure, i still love the show, it’s one of those creepy tales tv shows you just can’t get your eyes off or maybe that’s the actors they bring to the show. I feel all of them are so magnetic i love them all so much, it’s just a joy to watch it.

I love the fact that they don’t cut with the blood and the ugliness, it just as it would be if it were to happen or at least as i think it would be. I mean, when my head goes to that kind of ugliness, it just looks like it does in AHS. It may be that they managed to get to my head, and thus i imagine stuff as they show, but well… i just really enjoy it.

Anyways, AHS is my aesthetic for horror.

The thing is, i didn’t always watched the show, there was a time when i was sort of mad at Ryan Murphy, i can’t even remember why and i know it’s stupid, but i couldn’t watch any of his tv shows. But let’s be real, i totally forgot why i was mad, and it sure was something silly so i put that away and started rewatching all the seasons and catching up with the ones i missed.

For what it’s worth, i think AHS may be of Ryan’s best works. I watched all the ones that came out since Glee, so i don’t know about before but as far as i understand the guy is a tv genius.

So, there’s that…

Do i recommend this show? Absolutely… surely not every season may be for you, and some may disturb you … or bore you but heck, it’s amazing.

If you haven’t watched it yet, i would recommend it if you want some shows instead of movies for this halloween.

Reminiscing Monday #17: The first band i’ve ever listened to.

Reminiscing Monday is basically a series of posts where i talk about everything and anything from books to movies, tv shows, and music that influenced me somehow in my life.

Sure i haven’t been posting this series, or anything much these past few weeks/months but seeing as last week one more light was shut down i thought it would be a good time to bring the series back in order to commemorate it.

Reminiscing Monday: The first band i’ve ever listened to.

Last Thursday Chester Bennington, the lead singer in Linkin Park, was found dead in his home. My sister was the one who gave me the news Friday morning and she shoved the thing off as if it wasn’t important.

At first, i was a little in shock but i thought ‘ok… it’s the shock of knowing someone died’ but as the hours kept passing by i felt worse and worse until i couldn’t stop my tears anymore and broke down crying.

For a fan this could be something normal, but the thing is that even though i do have someLinkin Park songs in my phone and i’ve been listening for a while now i’ve never seen myself as a fan of the band.

So i really stopped to think about why the death of Chester hit me so hard that i’m still bursting into tears from time to time and anywhere.

The realization came to me a few hours ago and it is what i want to talk about today.

Back in 2000 when my sister became a teenager she and i shared a room. This may sound as nothing important but you know how in the pre and teenage years one “discovers” music, meaning for the first time she wasn’t just listening to songs from telenovelas as Chiquititas (little girls) and this affected me as it affected her.

My sister’s first years discovering music were full of rock, rap and punk.

Since i shared the room with her my discovering years were the same.

The most prominent band she listened to was… As you may guess Linkin Park, followed by stuff like Limp Bizkit and Nas.

Sure at the time, i didn’t understand a word of what they sang or why the singer was always screaming but Hybrid Theory was the first cd i’ve ever listened from beginning to end and looking back it meant something because since then i have always had some Linkin Park songs with me.

No, i’ve never been a fan of the band per se, to be honest most of the songs i own are their singles but still, even though i was just a casual listener they have had such an influence in the way i look at the world, how do i choose the battles i believe i can fight, how do i show myself to the world… I mean for years ‘Numb’ was my song, i guess, as many others said already, Linkin Park is the kind of band that is just the soundtrack of life.

I guess it’s the little things that shape us and today i know to appreciate them more than i had before.

Reminiscing Monday #16: Digimon

Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

Digimon by … wait, who is the creator of Digimon!? … (goes check…) Akiyoshi Hongou

Digimon AdventureI have an eternal fight with my brother, which one is better… Digimon or Pokemon? My brother says it’s Pokemon because it’s still running, to me it’s Digimon because i liked it better and the fact that something still runs doesn’t mean it is necessarily good.

The Digidestinated, the Digimons, the Digievolutions, omg… i have almost tears in my eyes.

Now, maybe i started watching Pokemon before Digimon, but the moment i started the last i lost all interest i might have had for Pikachu and Ash.

I started watching Digimon when i was about 9 or 10, i remember i caught the first episode by chance, and it was in the very beginning of it, when the kids where at camp.

From the moment i watched that episode i knew i would love the show and would watch every episode, which i did and still do, because the anime from my childhood are the ones i rewatch most of the time.

There was something really fun about the show, maybe the fact that it wasn’t happening in our world, but the Digidestinated were humans brought there like it could happen to anyone.. (escaping this regular and boring life is a leitmotiv in my life). Sure, they were animated but who was thinking about that fact then?

Also, i think for the first time i found a character that reminded me of myself in an anime, later i would find some more, i’m talking about Koushiro and maybe a little about Jou.

When i was little (and actually it’s still that way) i enjoyed more shounen than shoujo (CLAMP aside) and the Digimons’ battles were super fun for little Clemence. I could play hours as a Digidestinated and as a Digimon itself.

To be completely honest here, even though i really like Digimon i only completed watching two seasons (Digimon Adventure and Digimon Zero Two) but i watched some episodes of the others seasons and they are all in my TBW list.

Now, last week i talked about my childhood crushes, but now thinking about Digimon i’m realizing i totally forgot about one of them … (maybe two or ten), the one crush i had from Digimon though… Yamato Ishida.. i liked him in both Digimon Adventure and Zero Two. Like omg, i liked him so freaking much  it’s really embarrassing.

Yamato Ishida
(My sister thought i was crazy because i was crushing on an animated character -) Yamato Ishida.

So, i really hope i wasn’t the only kid crushing on Yamato Ishidaanimated characters… otherwise07.

But what can i say, since i was never going outside to play with other children, all i saw most of the time was animated series, and kids develop ridiculous crushes all the time!!

Anyway, so i was talking about how much i liked Digimon… Sure, i watched the show at least 1o times from beginning to end. And i still cry with the last episode of the first season.

I talked actually about Digimon coming back when i started the blog, i was really happy because we are now getting some new OVAs (original video animation) with the original Digidestinated (aka; the kids from Adventure) but they grew up and everything is amazing.

Thinking back, Digimon is part of who i am, at least th first two seasons are. Like, to this day when someone makes a change on how they look or something i say they “digievolved”. My sister thinks i need to grow up, but she sas that about all the anime i watch so…

There was something really neat on the show, i can’t pinpoint why i liked so much… i could as well not like it and nothing would have changed in life much. Still, i’m so happy that i enjoyed it and i like it to this day.

Reminiscing Monday #15: Fictional Crushes From Childhood

Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Well, actually today i’m gonna talk  about my crushes back in the day when i was a little girl (from ages 5-12 more or less), this is gonna be awkward…

 Fictional Crushes From Childhood

The idea came to me when i was rewatching 12 Monkeys (the tv show). I was happily thinking about how cute Aaron Stanford is (tumblr_inline_n61q9gT5Qa1qhdusl) when i remembered he played Pyro in the X-men movies. Now, i really enjoy the X-men movies (or most of them) although they have a big BIG HUGE flaw. They DON’T HAVE GAMBIT ON THEM.

haha, you may think, why do you even care about about Gambit? but, BUT…

Actually, Gambit was one of my first crushes ever, and i mean Gambit the animated version.

Haha, actually i used to like Cyclops too, but not as much as i liked Gambit. I think it was the first time someone had to tell me i won’t be marrying him because he is animated… I really wanted to be Rogue at the time…

This reminds me i also wanted to be Kimberly, the pink power ranger because of  Tommy, the green/white power ranger. They had a thing going on, didn’t they?

 

what even, i was like 5 when i liked him.

Dragon Shiryu, from Saint Seiya was also really up on my list back in the day…. right now i’m like really laughing about this, but at the time i was completely serious like it was one of my biggest crushes … omg.

Fou Lafine

Another character i had a crush on created by Saint Seiya’s creator, Kurumada Masami, was Fou “Fao” Lafine from B’t X. Man, i loved this anime so much, but it’s an oldie and i never find people who watched it … i’ll talk about it someday.

….

Back in the day when i just started reading Harry Potter, Ron was my favorite character… so when Rupert Grint was casted for the movies i immediately  had a crush in him too…

Finally, last but not least, …. in Argentina there was this telenovela for kids called “Chiquititas” (“little girls”) and somewhere in the way they brought a Mexican young actor called Felipe Colombo to play in the telenovela…

Actually in this picture he looks a little older than when i was 11-12, but since i had a crush on him through my teenage years, all the time, all the freaking time… so it doesn’t really matter…

Since having these crushes , a long time has passed but still, though all my life i had them, not these specifically, but through the years i had tons and tons of crushes…. i still do have them actually, … my biggst crush being Jared Padalecki since i was 15-16, when i started watching Supernatural.

Man, i don’t know if this post is more pointless or shameful, but it’s at least a little of both..

Who were your crushes when you were little?

‘Til Next Time 😉

Reminiscing Monday #14: Restaurant City

Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

Restaurant City by Playfish

Resultado de imagen para restaurant city One of my goals in life right now is leaving Facebook for good. The main problem i have with closing my account is the fact that I’ve spent so many hours playing the stupid games it has, i feel bad for letting them go.

Yes, i’m the one person that keep playing the games after they stop being trendy, but no.. i don’t send requests to people i know aren’t playing.

Thinking of that i remebered the one game i spent most of my time playing from 2009-2012, yes, i spent like three years logging in every single day to get all the goodies and stuff…

Like honestly, i loved this game, it was an addiction.

I remember i started playing it a few minutes a day, like, okay, i’m waiting for something to load so i’ll play a little, but it became more and more time consuming as they started adding stuff you could get for your restaurant. It was riddiculus, i could spend about 3 to 5 hours a day trying to get stuff for my restaurant, and i would think it was well spent time.

What the hell was i thinking?

 

Resultado de imagen para restaurant city
I was so invested in the game i owned every possible thing

 

Luckily for me i might have invested my time, but not money on the game because even though it was a lot of fun and everything it was closed in 2012.

Wow, i cannot believe it was such a long time ago…

I mean, at the time it was everything, it was i think the first game i played on facebook and the one that started the madness, to this day i still try a lot of the games, bwecause i’m hoping to find one this awesome… But no, they aren’t that good anymore…

Okay, not that it was such a great deal, i had to find vegetables and different ingredients to make different dishes and just let my workers do everything else, like i would just give them shifts, but still, i loved it so much.

If i recall right (which i may not) the last level it had was level 90, like, you would level up by making money, so it wasn’t that hard, and i was the final level for like forever and wouldn’t understand why couldn’t i level up anymore, only to discover now that the company that made the game was bought by EA and they destroyed it and then closed it 12.

 

I’m never getting over this.

But seriously, looking back, what a tremendous waste of my time. Like, EA, either you give me my time back or somehow you have to pay me back because i spent a lot of my time and life in this game WTF.

 

Now that i think about this i feel such an idiot for spending all that time on decorating my restaurant and adding unknown to me people to facebook because they played the game and that way we could trade ingredients.

My gosh, what was i thinking?!

Seriously, never play these games if you can avoid it… now i’m stuck with other two games…and i don’t know how to stop myself from playing them every day.

What a waste of my time.. well, it’s not like i have much more to do anyway.. but still…. what the heck!?

Save me from myself.

Reminiscing Monday #13: Glee

Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

GLEE

Glee poster Oh Wow, this is bringing back a lot of memories already.

So, back in 2009 all i would watch was Anime. Well, that was until the very day i discovered this awkward, funny, full of music and heart tv show where, get this, actual people played! (XD).

I don’t remember why exactly i decided on giving the show a chance, but i did and by the second episode i was hooked. Glee became at the time my everything, i would watch it 24/7, like each and every free moment i would watch it and rewatch and rewatch …

I loved the music, the characters, the fact that the show was full of color. There was something i was truly needing at the moment, Glee changed my life.

I started singing at random moments and was feeling pretty happy with life, maybe because of all the music in the show, maybe because i saw myself in the outcasted characters…. i don’t know, everything seemed perfect to me.

I watched the first four seasons a million times each… at the time i also was so obsessed with it, i’d buy everything Glee related. To this day i own the first four seasons, all the CDs they released, even the *special ones*; Madonna, Christmas, The Warblers, you name it… i bought some weird books that were published, i had[have] posters, magazines …. whatever there was to be purchased i owned, well… for some reason i never bought any shirts …but everything else i had.

Glee was more than a show i loved, i was completely obsessed with it… so much, i think i couldn’t talk about anything else for quite some time.. i’m so sorry to the people that had to deal with me every day at that point in my life.

Well, as i already *admitted*, Glee was my life for four, five years… man, even now, if i think about glee i cannot truly express it with words all i have in my mind is GLEE GLEE GLEE GLEE GLEE GLEE… like, not even some coherent sentences.

Yes, i did mention i was a fan for four/five years and there’s a reason.

I was a huge fan of Glee (obviously…) when Cory Monteith died.

His character was never my favorite, but i really liked him as an actor, and when he passed away something broke within me. I mourned his death for months and when Glee came back after i just, i couldn’t watch it knowing that he wasn’t coming back.  Yes, there was a special episode commemorating him, and to tell you the truth, that was the last episode of Glee i ever watched.

Many times i thought of watching the last two seasons, since i knew some stuff went on with my OTP (at the time), Klaine, especially in the last season…. but i felt like it was betraying Cory.  Like, without him it wasn’t truly Glee. There wasn’t any GLEE.

At times i still think of binge watching it all, but since then so much happened… i don’t know if i’ll ever get to actually do it.

Even now, when i can see the flaws in the show since i’m not the blind superfan i used to be anymore, i hold the show in a very special place in my heart… Glee brought me back to life when i was really down, i still listen to the songs they covered because those people are extremely talented.

I still check on what the different actors are doing, what’s going on with their careers… even thought the only one i’m watching in another TV show currently is Harry Shum Jr. in Shadowhunters… but about that show, i’ll talk in another post… no wait, i watched Scream Queens too…

Anyway, Glee was and may still be a great part of my life, even if at times i feel ashamed i was so obsessed! And i think it’s a good thing to actually put in on the table.. i don’t know maybe i’m just rambling.

‘Til Next Time 😉
