I'll be gone for a while, I need to go to Japan...

Usually when I wake up, I check my email and LJ flist first thing. However, last night I downloaded something that seemed like it should be interesting (or awful in an interesting way), so I decided to just take a glance at it first. Prince of Tennis, live action and as a musical. Yes, this is a very, very scary idea.

However! It's really, really, really well done. The human actors look and sound just like the anime characters (amazingly so!), and it's handled really well. I ended up not just taking a peek at it, I watched the whole first file (the first half of it)!

The only (small) downside is that it's in Japanese and not translated/subtitled yet (or if it is, I didn't see a download for that version). But even without knowing what they were saying/singing, I could easily follow along (it was roughly following the anime's early plot).

I can't believe how good the actors look! I'm plotting and planning to fly to Japan so I can find the guy who plays Echizen's father. Then I'll pounce him and grab him and do all sorts of fangirlish things to him! Eee!

So I'm going to watch the second half, then deal with email and LJ. With theatrical_muse being so active, I'll probably have to ?skip=150 just for eight hours (sleep + show) away, but it's worth it!

Now back to dancing and singing and tennis! (They fit surprisingly well together! Throw tennis moves into dancing, dance while playing tennis!) Eee!

LJ hates just me or everyone?

Has LJ been being a beast to just me today, or is everyone seeing this? I can't load my friends page without broken tables and lost posts, and about half the time some part of the page won't load (background, the side bars, whatever). Plus it's been slow as heck, and of late no one's icons seem to be loading...

In other news, I need a man. Does anyone want to come be my man? No, I don't want you to cook or clean or hop into bed, I need bookshelves and books and other heavy things moved! Ow ow, pulled my back trying to move bookshelves. Okay, okay, maybe I should have unloaded them before attempting it... stupid, stubborn me. My mother's favorite saying always comes back to haunt me. "The lazy man's way is the hardest." Ow, it was! Stupid me...

And lastly, admire my new default icon! Eee! They're father and son, and the son has all these Issues about besting his (wonderful, sexy, arrogant, pervy) father. It's one of my favorite elements of Prince of Tennis. Eee!

    Ow, back.

*pant*pant* End of the night? Already?

Bah, bedtime soon. Spent, oh, five hours or so burning CDs. Got 40-something eps of Prince of Tennis moved off of my harddrive. Deleted. Emptied trash. Checked the properties... almost no extra space made! Arg! Mutter.

theatrical_muse is still great fun -- Ed's so flexible he can interact with almost everyone. Literally, everyone: God likes him (yes, someone is playing God), he tried to eat the patients of various doctors (ER, MASH), and he's very confused by many, many people (Spiderman? Yummy like a spider but man-sized? Phineas Nigellus -- a man in a painting... hey, paintings are good to chew on! And Crookshanks, why's a little tiny cat so meeeean?). And boy, the LotR folks are so violent, they kept threatening our poor hyena! Heehee, well, okay, Ed did sort of want to eat their wounded...

Since I couldn't do anything on my computer while the CDs were burning, I got lots of other stuff done. Christmas cards written, boxes packed. Need to go to the post office tomorrow. Eek, lines!

Guess that's it. I only got maybe two PoT eps watched today, but I did watch the musical three times this morning! Want to watch it more, but no time. And as much as I'm enjoying theatrical_muse, I hope it slows down tomorrow. I'm having tons of fun, but I won't be able to keep up with this volume of posts from work. (50 new ones every time I left the computer for two hours! theatrical_muse and my normal LJ traffic.)
