The Bleach marathon is over  
Anyone out there waiting for me to actually write something will be happy to know, that I'm all caught up on Bleach now. After the holidays, I'll finish the next chapter of "P&C."

And since it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, sit back, enjoy a cup of rum-laden egg nog, and let Gackt's soothing Engrish put you in that holiday spirit. Silent Night   Sure to become a fast holiday favorite^^

And while I'm at it, here is a funny vid of Hyde (lead singer of L'arc en Ciel and wearing the shades,) another little cutie. And I get to say little cuz at 5'4" means I've got him by 4 inches.   What's in the box, Hyde?

And here it is....

A friend at work sent me this today and I damn-near pissed myself.  It was all I could do to not laugh like a maniac at my desk.  And don't panic, the cat's photoshopped in.

Not a bad Silent Night! Although I found myself wondering if they understood what they were singing. Probably not, but it sounded pretty, lol.

And I was definitely laughing at that second clip. I actually clapped when he guessed it!

Hope you enjoyed your Bleach marathon. I caught the dub last Saturday and HATED how they voiced Renji. Everyone in the dub sounds too mild-mannered or something. It's boring. I love the growly undertones in the original!

Well, I think Gackt speaks some English so he might know or someone could have told him. That's what the managers for ABBA used to do back in the day when they couldn't speak or read English. Did I just make an ABBA reference? Oh lord....blame my mother for that one.

Yeah, dubs usually suck. I've been watching it here and there. It's just not as, I don't know, emotional? The Bount Arc is better than I thought it was going to be, but it still could have been a little shorter. And I'm drooling over your icon, btw.

Ah, it's a pretty good rendition. Wonder what it would sound like in Japanese? Ever hear Stevie Nick's singing it? And she's a native English speaker I think. lol But her version's very pretty, too. Gackt is a pretty man. When I went to look at the Hyde video, there was a video for Sakura and Hyde (not sure who they are...maybe members of a band?). Anyways, I decided to watch it, too, and boy are they pretty. Especially the one that looks like he could pass as a woman if he cross-dressed (the one who's hair is sometimes reddish and might be of mixed origins). Sooo pretty. I'm jealous LOL

Anyways, glad you enjoyed Bleach. I've been watching it AdultSwim. I have to say I actually like the dubbed version and think the voices of the English actors are pretty cool *shrugs*.

I loooooooove Stevie Nicks. She can sing anything and it would be amazing. And Gackt is beyond pretty, his preternatural beauty is borderline ethereal.^^

I think Sakura is another member of L'arc en Ciel. And you should know that group if you're a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist. They sing the opener, "Ready, Steady, Go." They are quite the pack of cuties.

I liked the Bleach dub since I liked Ichigo's English voice actor (he's one of my favs,) but having watched all the episodes in their true form, I can say that the sub version is way better.

Now, I need to get my head back in gear to start writing again.
