    8) The second one is GeGeGe no Kitaro, the popular manga by Shigeru Mizuki. Got myself the first couple of volumes, from a total of twelve, while in the case of Kamui-den got the first of four titanic, 1500-pages volumes. Both titles are phenomenal, and must-reads for the non-mainstream fans.

    7) Talking about manga, have you dropped it for good, or did you still managed to read a thing or two (like AX)? I, for instance, haven't read anything in London, but before I picked up some really interesting stuff. Not sure if I told you, but I ventured in Jiro Taniguchi's Summit of the Gods, which really touched me and excited me in a way, that I want to enroll in the next years in a Mountain climbing club. Definitely recommend it, as it's currently being published in English. Another title that I loved was Rose of Versailles, that made me buy Stefan Zweig's Marie Antoinette (in the original, as I'm lucky enough) which was the main source of inspiration for Riyoko Ikeda. This one is unbelievably nonexistent in English, but I believe that there are scans of it. Lastly before going to London I bought two classics, that are unfortunately (but obviously) unavailable in English. The first one is Kamui-den, the chef-d'oeuvre of the Garo Magazine.

    6) Although I lived with two Japanese girls for these last four months, and socialized with many more Asian people, I still can't understand them quite well. What I noticed, and it took me some time to notice it, is that everyone has a social mask on. Although with some it may be a minor one, with most of them it's huge. And, even though I consider myself japanophile in someways, I can't understand most of their actions and behaviors. I think that Western are more healthier in a way, that they don't hide, and just live out life. Perhaps Asians find an exile in Video Games, and even manga, and live their life through there.

    5) As I knew people from all over the world, everyone convinced me how beautiful their country was, and I just felt like visiting everywhere. And as you describe me those beautiful landscapes in America, it's a place where I really want to go. If I had the money, I would take this year off and do a voyage around the globe. Hell, I don't even have the money to do a tour around Portugal...

    4) Overall I'm really happy on dropping the previous University. And I don't have the feeling I lost 2 years of my life (or 1 and a half). I actually think I learnt a lot, and that it made me who I am today. I don't regret choosing it at the time, I someway am grateful for it, because now I really think I'm in the right way. Although I change from a course who offers so many jobs, to one, where everyone who has it is unemployed. Still, as I in these last months became more Carpe Diem then anything else, I don't fear the future. In the end I believe if a present in a job application a CV with 7 languages, I may get lucky...

    3) With Spanish now (I ended up speaking quite fluently Spanish, Don Quijote is my next reading) I could say I speak 5 languages, Portuguese, German, English, French and of course Spanish. Now that I already applied to the University, I'm just waiting for the results, to know in which class I'm going to end up. I applied to Asian studies, in this case I would chose to learn Japanese and Arabe (I wont dare to go to Chinese, because not only it's the hardest language out there, I think it would mess up with the Japanese, as both use the same characters, but with different meaning, and I really fancy learning Japanese). I also applied to European studies, which would be Italian and French (or maybe Romanian, not sure yet), and to Classic studies, Latin and Ancient Greek. I'm really looking forward to know where I'm going to end up, and excited to start with the new languages!

    2) Not only is London a fabulous city, but being in a language school, and in their residence, I meet students from all over the globe which was fascinating for me. It was in London that I realized I want to study foreign languages and culture. Also, due to the fact that most of the students were Latin american, I ended up learning Spanish. And although Portuguese and Spanish are very close, there's still a big difference. It was thus a big effort. The again, It's curious how no Spanish-speaker can speak well Portuguese. This happens because Spanish has only 5 vocals, while in Portuguese there's 9 + 5 (these 5 are nasal vocals). So although both languages are so similar, it's still hard to learn one, even if you're fluent in one of them. Nevertheless, for me it was fascinating to learn a new language, and I felt that this is what I wanted to do for the next years.

    1) As I re-read your last comment, i'm curious to know how is your french (and latin) doing. Mine is terrible unfortunately. Actually my life went through a big twist, as I dropped university last winter. I'm not sure if I told you, but I was studying Computer Engineering. I remember at the time choosing it for my (fainting) interest on computers, but mainly, because of the wide-range job offers, after finishing the bachelor. But, although for times I thought it was quite interesting and even exciting, overall it was a pain. And it definitely wasn't something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So, after one year and a half, I dropped it. Nevertheless, I want to finish University, and even though I hadn't quite the idea what to do, I knew that University will only start on September, so I decided to go to London to a language school improve my english. This was back in March. I ended up staying there 4 months, and I loved every bit of it.

    hey man!! it's been so long that i'm even ashamed of writing you. do you even remember me? It's been almost one year since my last message (How time flies by). But in a stream of thoughts I remembered our long talks here over last.fm, and I decided to ask how you're doing, and how were these last months with you. I'm looking forward hearing from you!

    I was talking to myself there I guess, sorry for being so cryptic - the translation struck me as a bit awkward and may have contributed to you misunderstanding Schopenhauer's already convoluted remarks.

À propos de moi

At least leave a shout before you friend me

Rate Your Music (though I mostly use it for movies since I probably won't have Netflix forever).

My Anime list profile
-Don't know why I still have this since I don't watch anime or read manga/any comics anymore.

I'm addicted to music but I wish I wasn't. Its too much of a distraction and its becoming a crutch. I would much rather read, study, or hang out with friends. I don't want to banish music from me but be able to control how much I listen to.

I also don't give a shit about the lyrics. In comparison to literature and poetry, almost all lyrics are shit (and yes, I read and I read a lot). So quit bitching about how "so and so"'s lyrics suck as an excuse be critical of them. In comparison to what the singer is saying, how he says it is much more important. Thus I view the voice more as an instrument.

In music theory, I have a great interest in the theories of the Ancient Greeks (especially the Pythagoreans) since many of the ratios (the irrationals) that they found through music was later proven to geometrically true in Book 10 of Euclid's Elements (well, according to Boethius). Also want to learn more general and modern music theory. But I'll get there eventually.

Lastly, I don't give a shit about charts and don't judge people or groups by them. Its stupid. Trolls will and I try not to notice them. None of their opinions actually make me think or even infuriate me. Hell almost all of them are so close-minded and their points are merely a bunch of vague words that their opinion becomes meaningless.

Stop abusing the word pop. Just because something isn't harsh or its uplifting doesn't make it pop.

Listening to music is like reading. There isn't much difference in the ideas of training the ear to listen to things and being able to read on a deeper level. And thus, the better listener you become, the better composer you can be since being a better reader makes people better writers. (this idea needs to be worded better, but I'll do that later). So I'm not sure all music is subjective if this idea is true (which comes from my experience of reading and listening to music).
