innocentlyjaded: (an artistic mess)
It's 1:30 in the morning here. I need to sleep because of work, but I'm still up and scanning a whole lot of songs to stock my new-old ipod classic (80gb) that my sister had bequeathed to me last christmas (since what seems like one-fourth of humanity have also taken to their iphones for that).

So the majority of songs on Suu (yes, that's her name :3) belong to Tori Amos, Tom Waits and Shiina Ringo. I'm looking forward to [livejournal.com profile] mienaihoshi's L'arc en Ciel, Luna Sea, Vocaloid and Nico Nico Douga ones. I'll dig up my old music cds once everything's been settled.

And [livejournal.com profile] lanoyee just recc'ed Laleh to me, and she sounds awesome ^^

Haven't been able to post anything on the book blog since I was down with fever for the past few days :/ I owe it my book wishlist and general reading plan for 2011 (which... well, no plans yet).

I'm also starting on re-reading all of the Harry Potter books before the final installment of the Deathly Hollows movie opens later this year. Well, re-read 1-4, since I wasn't able to read 5-7, aheh.

[livejournal.com profile] heterotopic, your answers are coming up!

1. book wishlist for the year? (make it long and strong! :p)
Gladly! Though I'm pretty sure this list will grow longer as time goes on and I remember more stuff.
  • Absolute Sandman (volumes I, II, III, IV)

  • Absolute Death

  • Blade of the Immortal Artbook by Hiroaki Samura already ordered this one!

  • My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me, edited by Kate Bernheimer

  • Stories (ed. Al Sarrantonio, Neil Gaiman)

  • The Satanic Verses and The Ground Beneath Her Feet by Salman Rushdie

  • Tigana, my own copy of The Lions of Al Rassan and Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay

  • The Millennium Trilogy (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest) by Stieg Larsson

  • The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (... okay, at least the first 2 or 3 books XD)

  • Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman

  • The Pleasure of the Text by Roland Barthes

  • The Education of a Typographer, edited by Steven Heller

  • The Transparency of Evil: Essays on Extreme Phenomena by Jean Baudrillard

  • Orality & Literacy: The Technologizing of the Word by Walter Ong

2. dream place to go!
Wherever! Kyoto, Japan is still on top of my list though. And I'd like to travel all around the Philippines if time and money permit me to.

3. tell me one thing you are really proud of/happy about yourself.
... this is going to be a bit of a tough question to answer? Um... right now it's my ability to stay afloat despite all the new responsibilities being hurled at me. It's already standard to most, but to me who has been more or less... withdrawn and most of the time without a lick of common sense in the wide world, it's one heck of a challenge. I'm taking it day by day as it is. I'm still lacking, but I'm pretty okay with that for now.

4. one thing you are determined to do/accomplish this year.
... just one? Can I mention two? One is to start discovering (or acting on) whatever I really want to do for the rest of my life. Second is to keep on writing everyday (in what/wherever! blogs, letters, etc.)

5. if you could take any major, what would it be? (can be anything; can be a postgrad major.)
Comparative Literature, with Creative Writing as a postgrad.

The last 6 books in the list are influenced by Gelo Suarez and Sasha, who are both phenomenal people.


Karen. 28. Starting anew in here.
