lots of great new music came out in the past couple weeks. there was the new Katatonia last week which is currently my AotY, and then this week new Architects and Thrice both of which are pretty killer. dude at the record store sold me the former a day earlier than the release date which is pretty cool. meanwhile I've been trying to work out a new organizational/storage system for my 750+ CDs and that's been kind of a pain (literally. those boxes are heavy)
also been catching up on this season's anime. Studio Trigger's Space Patrol Luluco is adorable and one of my favorite things in a while, although tonight's episode was kind of weird and felt rushed but still. I've also been enjoying Wit Studio's new show Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. it's a little too similar to Attack on Titan (also by Wit) storywise but the animation is absolutely gorgeous and I'm liking the characters for the most part. Kiznaiver is another thing I'm really enjoying, it's also by Trigger but it looks and feels kind of different for them and I'm really digging the story and the characters. I've also been watching Mayoiga, although I don't know why at this point, since almost all the characters are really unlikeable and the story has kinda jumped the shark. beyond that I've started Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless and Anne Happy but haven't gotten far enough in either to make a judgment yet, and I've also still got a pretty long list of stuff I intend to check out at some point.
and finally (and most importantly), in addition to my continued quest for employment I'm probably gonna start taking art classes soon. haven't worked out the specifics but it's something I'm really interested in doing and I've already found a few options that seem plausible. maybe if this pans out I can eventually do art as a career, that'd be pretty cool
and that's it I guess. idk why I've decided to make these occasional life update entries here, my interest in this place is at an all-time low and I don't think anybody reads them anyway, but whatever
