Story Update: Castella Episode 2

            As mentioned in a previous post, I have finished writing the second short story in the Castella series and am now editing and polishing it. This process is slow and very in-depth. So, with this update I want to present the stages of the process, information on what the stages are, and completion percentage of each stage.
            The Polishing and Editing Phase I (PEP I), consist of the six following stages.
1.      Surface Level Editing (SLE): 100% complete. - 4/16/11
2.      Rereading: 100% complete. - 4/17/11
3.      Implementing SLE: 100% complete. - 5/13/11
4.      Rewriting and Redoing Select Scenes (RR): 100% complete. - 6/08/11
5.      Implementing RR: 100% complete. - 6/11/11
6.      Next Wave Check: 100% complete. - 6/14/11

Random Music: Midori

          I just discovered this unique, female, Japanese punk jazzcore band: Midori (ミドリ). I thought I’d share some of their songs. Can’t promise you’ll like them. I do. They remind me of Bikini Kill with a piano (very simplified description). Great drummer. Hit the Jump for the music.

UPDATE 1 (12/7/12): Added some picture and correct some text.

Ganbare Nippon!

          By viewing this video, all proceeds will be donated to the victims of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. The donations collected will be reported on http://www.shueisha.co.jp/english as well as magazines published by Shueisha Inc.

Site Update

          Hey, guys. If you're reading this I'm glad. Today- or, um, tonight I did some visual work on the blog to make it look a bit cooler and less boring. I think it looks quite nice and hopefully you guys think it is aesthetically pleasing as well. That all. Short and sweet.
         By the way, the new top image is a heavily editing version of Mars Volta's Scabdates cover and the back image is heavily editing picture I took and I think is on this site somewhere.

          So, we had a Supermoon tonight . . . does that mean Sailor Moon finally became a woman?

I think this somehow means fertility.

Random Music Videos: The Stranglers

          Some music videos by The Stranglers. I got La Folie (+bonus songs) and thought I'd just put up my two favorite songs. Also, great videos. Hit the jump.

Finally Finished: Polishing and Contest Holding

            Hey, guys, Vahsol here. I’ve done it- I finally- become- a summoner. I’ve finished writing the story and heading into the polishing phase. But that’s not all that important. What is, is I’m now officially announcing the reference contest for the story. Here’s the quick version: The story is packed with references to movies, music, games, and a few other things. The person who correctly gives me the most references wins the big prize. To send me the reference simply sent them to my e-mail agncolem@aol.com with ‘Reference Contest’ in the subject line. Include your name. Don’t put answers in the comment. That’s it in a nutshell. For more detail please refer the complet rundown after the break (Also, screw these editing tools).
