Grinning Revi!  ^_^

grins like the insane man he is while Indian music plays in background

Wow. I tell you what, wow.


sa7chan showed me a music video from an Indian musician named Daler Mehndi called "Tunak Tunak Tun," and let's just say I'm obsessed. Obsessed is too weak a word, the song is glued to my head and wouldn't come off if you applied universal solvent to it. Here's the original music video from YouTube: Tunak Tunak Tun (Best Copy).

WHY is this man not popular in America????? Yes, yes, I know, most people aren't geeks like me who get catchy weird Indian songs stuck in their heads, but it's such a fun little song! I've listened to it several times now, and I'm grinning like a Cheshire cat!

For some reason, I want to do a Black Lagoon AMV to this thing. Yes, I know, I'm obsessed with that too. It's just, somehow I think it could be funny, if to no one else then to myself. The trouble is, to do it well (i.e., how I am envisioning it) would take a tremendous amount of skill. I would want to lipsynch a lot of the words to Revi and the others speaking. It would also require digital effects and m4d 3d171ng skillz; at the very least, I would want to import a couple images of stacks of dollar bills (to the part of the song that sounds like "Dollar, dollar, ..."), which, oddly enough, doesn't show up so often in BL as I recall.

I see this thing as coming out like the Tainted Donuts AMV. It would have a kind of a plot. It would be a very loose plot, but that's beside the point. Ah well, it's a fun idea. Say what you think.

I am SOOOOOOO HAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPYYYYYYYY! It's like Christmas decided to come early (except it'll take the animators a while to get back together, finish the next half, and so on... ah well).

[Geek] Well, I finally went and did it...

I decided to do possibly the craziest, weirdest, funnest thing in my life so far:

I decided to crossplay this lovely lady at some point in the near future: Collapse )Yep, I decided to crossplay Revi. I am such a fanboy. Yes, I am obsessed, thank you very much. I will join the ranks of the male crossplayers, also known as men who dress up as anime women. Fun.

This hasn't entirely been an easy decision because, although I am definitely a Revi fan, I was a bit leery about the idea of crossplaying at first. This is in part because I would not want to do it unless I was able to do it well (I have had bad crossplay experiences in the past... well, more like ONE bad experience, and the rest I either didn't notice or thought were fun!). That and some lingering socialization against men dressing up as women, which is more or less nonsense anyway. The reason I'm doing it myself is that I really am into the Black Lagoon fandom and at first wanted one of my female friends to cosplay Revi. However, the more I thought about it the more I realized that I was the one who really wanted to do it (although hopefully others will cosplay her too!), and since I was the one who really wanted to do it, then why shouldn't I?

SO! I have left my inhibitions behind me and am dedicating myself to crossplaying Revi in addition to doing a cosplay of Rock. It will not be easy, but what good things are? Hmm, let's see. I need to build up uber stomach muscles... I need to buy the costume pieces, including her pistols... I need to buy fake boobs... I need to find some way to give myself womanly hips...

And I should probably do something about my hairy legs, XD

Phew. That is all. I don't know where I'll premier this, whether it'll be at Anime Expo in Vancouver or Sakuracon next year... it depends on how much I get done, but it will definitely be appearing at Sakuracon 2007.

The Fandom Report -- Black Lagoon 9 and The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi 9 -- SPOILERS!

Wow. Just... wow. I need to watch all the eps of Suzumiya Haruhi. I don't know if I want to bother doing it in order or anything, but I need to watch all of them. But this one... ep 9 was pretty funny. Weird, but funny. Then again, when hasn't it been weird?
