My mother is the Death of Bees. And that particular night will probably go down in family (immediate and extended) as The Bee Story. That is all.
A few years ago I almost spent a four-digit amount on unsubbed/dubbed VCDs of Hikari Sentai Maskman
. Given the relative shadiness of the transaction, and especially upon consultation with the more level-headed people *cough*le_chatnoir *cough*riisha
, among others
, I held off.
Five years later, it's all on YouTube. With English subs and the original audio. And added bonus of other subbed sentai shows from my childhood.:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
Many many thanks to the words of wisdom.
As I rewatch (while looking away every now and then, because damn
it is silly
) some of my favorite episodes (AHAHAHAHAH Issei Hirota so damn cute) I'm amazed at how much subtext went over our heads back then. For instance, I knew even back then that Prince Igam was not as he appeared to be
and Fu-Min was very obviously a woman, but the implications of their relationship and their motivations and behavior
when seen at the right angles..... Dude
. They are so much cooler now. Once you get past the cheesy dialogue, of course.
Also, did you know that Yukari Oshima/Cynthia Luster
(a.k.a That Awesome Asian Martial Arts Lady That Appeared in a Lot of Action Movies Back Then) was also in the super sentai business? And that she did her own stunts? Search for "FarrahCat" on Youtube. The Bioman fans ought to recognize her. Little Me thought she was cool, despite her being EEEEVIL. And had also drawn her own EEEVIL ass-kicking costume/character because FarrahCat was so awesome....
Yeah, this is a totally deep and meaningful post. *shakes head sadly* But to add actual, meaningful content:
- Going to the PRC tomorrow to see if I can take the licensure exam
- Am now an "on-call" tutor
- Recital is this Saturday, and I still have no idea why I volunteered to perform
- School won't start for another 2-3 weeks
- Hoping to start advance reading, and maybe get around to writing fic, before school starts again
Hope y'all have a good day/night! *hug*
