BWotW: Conversation

Two months ago I was at The Cheesecake factory and we had a similar conversation over Whatsapp cause I ordered Fish Tacos, and…  this reminded me of that.

This is an excerpt of a really nice and interesting conversation I had today…

Tomie Kourai:
  I am at Starbucks…
  having a chai tea….
Ruben:
  chai tea at Starbucks?
Tomie Kourai:
  yup… n_n
Ruben:
  That’s like going to Burger King and asking for a Happy Meal
I deeply <3 that man up there…. one of my best friends in the world.

5 years after that conversation; still relevant and still deeply <3 that man up there..

BWotW: Ally McBeal

I remember about 10 years ago (I was around 14-13) I had this HUGE girlcrush on Ally McBeal. I loved the woman and I was fascinated by the show, Back then, I wanted be a lawyer, I bought a brown coat I still wear, and black mittens I still have, I wanted to sing “there’s a photo I’ve been looking for, it’s a picture of the boy next door” from the very bottom of my heart. Hell, I wanted to be at that Bar with Vonda Shepard. But most of all, I wanted to fall, deeply, stupidly, irrevocably in love with someone I’d known from childhood.

Then, as soon as the show ended, I crashed into reality. I realized as a lawyer you rarely if ever get the wacky cases Ally gets, I had no neighbors, therefore no photo, and the only friend I had from childhood was a girl I couldn’t really call a friend since we just say hello to each other, so there was no way I could live the series romance. And the Bar? Well, the bar was just a set with a piano girl.
Reality, you bitchy dream-crusher.
Anyway.
The thing is that I just found out Ally is still aired on FOXlife and decided to watch a bit (ok, 28 minutes into it and I still don’t want to change the channel) and suddenly remembered how much I loved the show,and realized, how, in a very weird and unexpected way, I ended up living my Ally McBeal fantasy.
I remember Ally got me connected with one of my still very close friends, I remember all the funky coincidences that made me believe in destiny…
It was a nice time…
I don’t even know why I’m telling you this, it’s just one of those connections you never lose. I am forever attached to Ally… lalala

BWotW: PalePoli

The day the absolute cathastrophe hit my life, I was writing this post on Palepoli,one of the most amazing mangas I’ve read (nothing beats Uzumaki – Junji Ito but this is so amazing).

The name literally meaning something like ‘Palace of Policy’ and since It’s such a different manga, non-traditional manga, I thought about sharing a couple of pages with you guys cause I KNOW you may like them.
I hope you enjoy the short stories, some of them are connected, and some are not. I personally love most of them.

BWotW: Your Sugar Sits Untouched

Originally posted on Big Words on the Walls. I didn’t write it, it’s a poem by Emilie Autumn and I’ll post the

Ghost

Did you know sometimes it frightens me
when you say my name and I can’t see you?
Will you ever learn to materialize before you speak,
impetuous boy, if that’s what you really are
How many centuries since you’ve climbed a balcony
or do you do this every night with someone else?
You tell me that you never leave
and I am almost afraid to believe it
Why is it me you’ve chosen to follow?
Did you like the way I look when I am sleeping?
Was my hair more fun to tangle?
Are my dreams more entertaining?
Do you laugh when I’m complaining that I’m all alone?
Where were you when I searched the sea
for a friend to talk to me?
In a year, Where will you be?
Is it enough for you to steal into my mind
filling up my page with music written in my hand
you know I’ll take the credit for?
I must have made you come to me somehow,
but please try to close the curtains when you leave at night
or I’ll have to find someone to stay and warm me.
Will you always attend my midnight tea parties,
as long as I set your place?
If one day your sugar sits untouched,
Will you have gone forever?
Would you miss me in a thousand years,
when you will dry another’s tears?
But you say you’ll never leave me,
and I wonder if you’ll have the decency
to pass through my wall to the next room
while I dress for dinner.
But when I’m stuck in conversation
with stuffed shirts whose adoration
hurts my ears, where are you then?
Can’t you cut in when I dance with other men?
It’s too late not to interfere with my life,
you’ve already made me a most unsuitable wife
for any man who wants to be the first his bride has slept with;
and you can’t just fly into people’s bedrooms
then expect them to calmly wave goodbye,
you’ve changed the course of history
and didn’t even try.
Where are you now?
Standing behind me?
Taking my hand?
Come, and remind me
who you are.
Have you traveled far?
Are you made of stardust too?
Are the angels after you?
Tell me what I am to do,
But until then I’ll save your side of the bed,
just come and sing me to sleep…

A COLLECTION OF JUNJI ITO PICTURES COMPILED BY KOU ON AN AFTERNOON WONDERING ‘WHAT TO DO? WHAT TO DO?’ COVERING THE MUSEUM OF HORROR, TOMIE, UZUMAKI, GYO, AND HELLSTAR REMINA. (JUST FOR MY REMEMBRANCE PLEASURE) PT. 1

As you know,I love Junji Ito, I get scared easily, but somehow his gruesome depictions of the dead and the monsters are kind of poetic to me. Weird, I know. I just don’t get scared easily with is mangas.

Today I was thinking about giving Uzumaki another read (5th, 6th?), as it is my favorite manga. And decided to compile some of the pictures from different Junji Ito works, for the sake of remembering it all.
This time I am showing you the Museum of horror and Lovesick dead (otherwise known as ‘The undying love’) the last one being one of my favorite stories.
The first one is the Museum of Terror (1 and 2). A collection of short stories covering from classic ghostly stories to doppelgangers

One of my favorites, The Undying Love (otherwise known as Lovesick dead), telling the love story and troubles of a very young couple living in a town haunted by what they know as ‘the intersection’s handsome boy’. This one got me wanting to play intersection fortune telling.
