I saw a girl who dyed her hair with purple color at a convenience store just now. OK it’s not really that purple but it’s really purplish and it’s no mistake that it is indeed purple in color. Mostly I’m fine with it but the only thing that disturbs me is it looks so natural to my eyes as if I’m seeing her original hair color. God, perhaps I watch anime too much (>_<)
Although I just subscribed to the DiGi‘s 10GB Broadband Plan but then I realized there’s no 3G connection at my neighborhood and got stuck with EDGE connection only. Not really bad but it’s impossible to use that to download anime episodes for now, at least until I move out closer to the city center where 3G is guaranteed available. Now I feel like I was deceived and stupid. It’s not entirely my fault actually. When I saw the promotion at telco shop at shopping mall nearby (very close, within a walking distance from my home) I thought it’s already available at my place here. Besides I’ve been planning to switch to DiGI Broadband for quite sometime, or to be specific since Celcom increased the price for additional quota, so I thought it was the right time to switch but I was wrong.
Recently Celcom increased the speed of their Broadband Basic Plan from 384kbps (typical 3G speed) to 512kbps. Sounds nice but actually it’s a bad news for new subscribers. People who subscribe to Celcom Broadband Basic after the upgrade took place will have to live with only 3GB worth of data transfer per month. I’m lucky as I’ve subscribed it for more than a year and I can still enjoy my monthly 5GB allocated quota. So is DiGi Broadband worth signing up? I’ve tried using it at city center and it’s indeed stable and speedy as claimed. While I never checked the authenticity of their claim of having average download speed at 700kbps (that’s even faster than Celcom’s recently upgraded download speed) I am quite satisfied that it’s indeed faster than my existing Celcom Broadband. My only hope is for them to expand the coverage soon or I’ll have to do either to stop my subscription or to move closer to the city center.
Well at least this new broadband package I just subscribed is not subject to any contract and I only pay less than 100 buck for the modem, which is way cheaper than buying it from the IT store. And the best thing is it can work with my Celcom SIM card, unlike the modem I got when I subscribed to Celcom 3G before, which is locked to Celcom. Having no contract means I can request for service termination anytime without having to return the modem back to DiGi as well as no penalty charge. Most importantly I can use the modem to replace the aging modem I got from Celcom. Anyways I’m thinking of using Celcom Weekly Prepaid Internet instead. While the daily prepaid allocated the subscribers with 384kbps speed with and 1GB bandwidth (6 bucks for 24 hours), I think the weekly prepaid is more money-saving (20 bucks per week, 2GB data). That means I’ll be paying around 80 bucks per month (at total 8GB data) or equals to 10 bucks per gigabyte of data.

I’ve stopped using Persona on Firefox for quite sometime. It’s not that I hate it but I need more space for the browser content than the browser skin.
Honestly I’m not really sure why I watch Strike Witches regardless how *cough* bad the series is. My best guess is it’s the similar reason of why I watch K-ON. People always said my hate towards any series is ‘illegitimate’ unless I watch them beforehand. Alright now that I’ve watched those series and still think they’re bad then that would make my hate towards them ‘legitimate’ right?
Actually I wonder why to certain people for whatever things that I do I need to make my reasons clear to them, regardless it’s about love or hate. I used to claim that I am a fan of certain series but then some people started to compare themselves with me by using sentences like “at least I did do this/that but you didn’t” as if they’re trying to say “I am better than you when it comes to the level of interest” and consequently ‘accused’ me of making invalid claim because to them I am no better to them. Oh come on what kind of logic is that to say that I’m an illegitimate fan just because I was deemed to have “lack of interest” when the comparison is totally biased and made merely based on their judgment alone? Not to mention such ‘accusation’ is a fallacy because “not doing what they’re doing” is totally irrelevant here. When I love or hate something my reason should not matter to anybody because what matters is those reasons are valid to myself, even if there’s no reason at all.
Anyways do we really need a reason for everything? I remember people making inconsistent and contradicting accusations towards me. They used to claim that we don’t need a reason for love but then when I claimed myself as a fan of certain thing they’ll refuse to accept because of trivial things like “I never played the game” or “never read the manga” or “never watch the anime“. Wow! Who are they, I wonder? Some kind of authority representing the so-called “legitimate fans” to decide which claim is true and which claim is false? Somebody please tell me this is a joke goddamnit.
For haters regardless how you’re going to judge my interest I’ll continue to do things as how I’ve been doing them all this time. I know you’re gonna hate this but I don’t care because I think you shouldn’t care about how I do things here either.
The feeling of thinking of a person, whose name is not known, is like listening to a song without knowing the title.
Or you know the person’s name, but not what s/he’s thinking about. The feeling is like listening to a song, when the title is familiar but not the tune.
I believe I’ve told many people how much and how I come to hate K-ON, and in return I got so much hatred from some stupid fans, of which some of them went as far as assuming that I am a gay. Oh well, perhaps to their logic, keion=girls so me hating keion equals to me hating girls as well. What an interesting logic they have there. Not to mention there are also people think I have “not enough interest in anime” just because I happen to “not appreciating” (or should I just say ‘hate’) certain anime series. Yeah, that’s also yet another interesting logic. I’d say similar thing to them too but they’re lucky that I’m not that kind of person.
While I never really say I don’t want the third season of K-ON, I don’t mind if it’s going to happen anyway though I did said “only if there are proper plot/story inside and get those girls a boyfriend for each of them”. Howevre it would be a good thing too if that never happen because the world is enough of K-ON already. Just a few weeks ago it is confirmed that To Aru Majutsu no Index gonna get the second season. Now there’s this rumor spreading around saying that To Aru Kagaku no Railgun would get its own season two as well. Honestly I’d say no to that because you know Kuroko is so damn annoying, perhaps the most annoying anime girl of all time if the title is not belong to Haruhi or Taiga or Senjougahara.
And with the final episode of Strike Witches season 2 just aired, people already hoping for the season 3. While it’s true that I like fanservice but I won’t approve deliberate fanservice like those found in Strike Witches. Seriously if people gonna make the third season for Strike Witches, at least invent the skirt first for those girls. I like to categorize fanservice into 3, namely deliberate, half-deliberate and accidental. The deliberate is like what found in Strike Witches, half-deliberate (or half -accidental) fanservice is like what found in most anime, where there may be characters making sex-appealing appearance inside although it’s not necessarily crucial to the story itself and can be safely avoided. The last one (accident) is self-explanatory (yeah even that may be avoidable too but they might be needed to put more realism in the story, as if the anime is a live action show).
Back to where I left before, I’d say most of current anime today are ended without cliffhanger, of which another season is not really necessary, especially for anime with total episodes more than 20. And the only excuse I can tolerate cliffhanger is the original works (read: manga) is still ongoing (Kimi ni Todoke, for instance).
(11/360 K-ON fans hung themselves at imaginary cliffs all around the world as a sign of protest against KyoAni for ending the series ‘prematurely’ before they could prepare themselves for it. Well it’s not like they’d be prepared for it even if they knew it beforehand though).
Don’t you think it’s unethical and immoral for any employers to fire or cut down their employees’ salary without telling them the reason beforehand?
And don’t you think there should be an act to protect workers from being fired (or having their salary being cut down) by their employers unprofessionally?
Most tweeples I know are comfortable with having 6 or 7 characters in their twitter username. I hardly see anything below than 5 characters.
Thinking of following me on twitter? Assuming that you are already following me and wants a followback from me, be sure to comply to these rules:
- Be sure to be able to tweet in English. I won’t followback you if you tweet mostly in other languages than English. Sure there are exceptions but don’t put much expectation on it.
- Don’t ask for a followback. I’ll decide who to follow after having enough time observing your tweets. I’ll sure followback you if you match the criteria but I won’t tell you specifically what are my criteria for a followback.
- Refrain from using profanity. I hate seeing F-bombs dropped in my timeline as much as I hate to use them myself. Once in a while is fine but to see them for almost everyday is no fun to me.
- Please prove to me that you’re human by mentioning me at least once or replying to at least one of my tweets. This way I’d be able to know that you’re human and not just some bots lurking around in twitter.
- Be a regular in twitter because I’m a regular tweeple too. It doesn’t mean that you have to devote most of your online time on twitter but at least tweet regularly so that I know I’m not going to followback a dead people.
- Engage in a conversation with me or at least reply to my mentions. I won’t followback anybody who aren’t interested in having a two-way conversation with me, even if you’re happen to be the so-called “twitter celebrity”.
- Don’t do something like “tweet-reporting”. This is usually done by ustream fags who can’t help but to tweet everything they see on the livecasts coupled with vague comments. Not to mention those who like to tweet every occurrence in an event (like every goal in a football match or every announcement in a console launches.
