(no subject)

So, I've been having Hikago withdrawal symptoms lately. I haven't watched the show in nearly a year, and I never finished it, and, well--I miss it all the time but since I got new HnG icons yesterday I've been staring at them fitfully and miserably and going, oh Touya, how have I been without you for this long.

I have Hikago somewhere on DVD which does me no good whatsoever because I a) can't find the dvds and b) can't play them on this computer. In an attempt to get the files by any means necessary, in part because I really want Anna and Sam and Starla to watch them, I've turned to Youtube. I can download the flash files, but unfortunately thereafter my skills fail me, unless someone can tell me why my Riva FLV encoder looks like this instead of like this. I tried re-downloading/re-installing it twice with no luck. :( I can't turn the flash files into .avi files without a converter, and I can't upload them for all of you if I can't turn them into .avi files.

I am able to convert eps to Mpeg, so if anybody wants HnG for their Ipod, let me know. Alternatively, if anybody can point me towards a non-IRC download method for Hikago, I will strew you with roses. Otherwise, I will do it the hard way. The very hard way. Alas.

Oh Shindou. Oh Touya. Wah.


Armchair chat is happening right now!!! H/D shippers, join room "armchairchat" on AIM or ping me, justslashalready, for an invite.

Aren't you the woman who was recently given a Fulbright?

Me: i tried to read watership down twice and i never finished it
Me: perhaps i should. it might technically fall under the category of rodents in dystopian literature!
Me: as would mrs. frisby and the rats of nimh!
Me: wow, it's like a whole subgenre.
Orphne: /:)
Me: now i want to think of more.
Me: THE WITCHES!!!!!
Me: THE MOUSE AND THE MOTORCYCLE.
Orphne: /:)
Me: well, okay, maybe the mouse and the motorcycle does not count, but the witches most definitely does!
Me: HEY. Peter Pettigrew on the run. KILLER RODENT. DYSTOPIAN WORLD.
Me: how about Stuart Little?????
Me: are there rodents in Animal Farm????
Me: MICKEY MOUSE IN WALT DISNEY WORLD.
Me: THAT HAS TO COUNT.
Orphne: /:)
Me: you know that i am right.
Orphne: /:)
Me: It could be a whole new field of academic study! How the representation of rodents as killers or victims in a postmodern dystopian universe reflects the urges of modern humanity to seek out pre-constrained roles for themselves in a 'kill-or-be-killed' capitalist construction of society!
Orphne: right
Me: you scoff now. but only wait. see if i ever let you touch my fulbright.
Orphne: /:)

kadslj;l Surely it is not just me. Where do the rodents all come from. Why are they always either EVIL SYMBOLS OF A SINISTER SOCIAL ESTABLISHMENT or the VICTIMS OF A SINISTER SOCIAL ESTABLISHMENT ATTEMPTING TO ERADICATE THEM? Why rats? Why bunnies?

Mes: sdaflkj;ld; BUNNICULA. CLEARLY AN EVIL RODENT.
Orphne: :( bunnicula isn't evil
Me: well, no, but chester and horace think he is! and clearly they are products of a sinister social establishment
Orphne: /:)

askldfj; HELP ME OUT, FLIST. EVIL RODENTS. I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

eta: Me: PRINCESS BRIDE.
Me: THE ROUSes.
Starla: ??
Me: CLEARLY EVIL RATS IN A DYSTOPIAN SOCIETY.
Orphne: oh Aja
Me: starla, is it too late to change the topic for your thesis. because let me tell you, have i got a humdinger.
