I am always extremely mad at people with normal visual processing and memory skills, because kanji. Fuck you guys. You can read kanji. Potentially.

When reading aloud I say ‘nanika nanika kanji kanji’ a lot.

So today I was pondering reblogging an image containing a mixture of art and Japanese text. I thought to myself “Pity I can’t do an image description for the text… but what are the odds there’s anyone reading my blog who knows Japanese but couldn’t understand it from an image?” 

PRETTY HIGH AS IT TURNS OUT

(of course said description would only be useful if I snarp has Japanese speech-to-text. And if I’d actually decided to reblog the post. But still)

Eh, I have a scribble dictionary. My eyes don’t often really crap out so badly that I can’t see to copy a kanji from a screen/book to the dictionary’s scratch pad.

I can read kana and a few hundred simple and really-commonly-used kanji. I’ve just never been able to “hold” the number necessary to pass the JLPT 1 or 2, and I have trouble “buffering” long sentences with a lot of unfamiliar or visually-complex characters.

(I’ve tried both the traditional write-it-a-zillion-times memorization method, which I’ve found to be useless, and the method-of-the-loci thing. The latter works better for me, because it associates an idea with the visuals, but the problem is that if I stop doing the flashcard sets that link the idea with the visuals for a week or so, I will quickly mislay the visuals and be left only with the idea.

"Okay so the kanji for "slow" is the scene in Fullmetal Alchemist where they slow down Bradley’s train, and the component symbols are a sheep and a road and a flag, so that should look like… shit. Fuck. Goddamn it!”)

I didn’t wash my face or use benzoyl peroxide before bed last night, and I dreamed that I broke out really badly and was frowning at myself in a mirror.

I woke up really annoyed with my subconscious for making a big deal out of this. So I rebelled against myself, and put off washing my face until afternoon.

I do appreciate that we took the time to establish that Ginoza didn’t actually need glasses. That was the most important thing that needed addressing in the final episode.

"Wait do you just wear glasses for show"

"I don’t think you understand how pretty I am Tsunemori, this is a public health issue"

List of Psycho-Pass.

* So did the writers even notice that they never had any single character discuss the consequences of the evil oat plan, aside from “Mother Brain dies?” Like you’d think one person would say “millions will starve.”

This is symbolic of all of the series’ problems.

* Why the fuck did we not hear about these magic oats one single goddamn time before the attempted oat murder finale went down?

* Let’s not put a single guard on our sole food source. That’s a good idea. I am Mother Brain and I am the smarterest.

* The attempted murder of oats was in all respects a painfully stupid manufactured crisis.

* Tsunemori is pretty obviously an “asymptomatic,” like Moriarty and Touma. If Mother Brain was willing to rip Moriarty’s head open by force, why not Tsunemori’s?

* Why did Moriarty even go after Masaoka and Ginoza? He’d never cared about them before! And his stated belief was that Sherlock only cared about him, so the purpose cannot have been to rile Sherlock up.

(The purpose was to make Ginoza suffer attractively sans glasses.)

* Moriarty and Sherlock’s characterization never started making sense at all, but this is unsurprising.

The least of several self-destructive behaviors I could’ve engaged in tonight.

Finished watching Psycho-Pass. Jesus fucking christ fuck this show.

I am angry about it because I actually really like every character except for fucking Sherlock, Moriarty, and Mother Brain. And of course that’s who the show is about because it is horseshit.

What on earth was the process by which the Earthbound soundtrack ended up with sugary English-language lyrics? Were the ironies involved? Confusion vis-a-vis the nature of the game?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with my decision to eat banana nut bread for the last three meals. Things are fine.

we started watching it a while ago and it has a distinct remix feel to it

"You know what this small stack of potentially-interesting-individually but idiotic-in-combination ideas I grabbed from better stories needs? A cop who doesn’t play by the rules. I came up with that idea myself. Okay, get the animators to work drawing this fucker’s face looking noble and strained, we’ll figure the rest out later.”

I don’t know why I kept watching this.

snarp:

The inanity of Psycho-Pass’s writing is directly proportional to how badly Kogami’s face is being drawn. This is a secret message from the animators, the message being: “Urobuchi Gen is a shallow shithole.”

Oh sure just plagiarize people with a thousand times more artistic integrity than you all the way to the bank, you hideous agglutination of substances scraped from exposed surfaces in Akihabara.

fuck off train

I would.. has the new version stabilized?

New version is baaasically stable, but it’s still extremely common to end up with either an embark where 1) you’re never going to get migrants or caravans, because civilizations get destroyed so easily, or 2) you never get invaded.

Both of these things are boring, so the last version might be better.

I’m insanely out of date (no z-levels last time I played) and was never great, but… maybe? If I can catch up, seems like a lot of fun.

I guess we know who’s taking the first turn!

Anyone want to do a Dwarf Fortress succession game?

Inevitable.
