Oh I see.
This site suddenly turned into my Japanese keitai (cellphone):
、は 。 関係 。 で 席に？ ね！ で 出来る？
Yes.Those are sentences.

My summary of the 1st Presidential Debate.(Take it as serious as you take the internet).
So, I uploaded some of my piano music to FMA only 2 weeks ago and I have way over 3000 downloads. And while that's well and dandy, I have also found 10 videos on youtube that used my music against the copyright license.
Now here's the thing, apparently when you upload to an archive, clueless content douches think that "free" means "I get to do whatever I want".
My license? CC BY-ND means no derivatives. Basically you can't change the work (alter or shorten or remix) or add it to a video or slideshow without permission of the artist. The responses I get are asinine.
"But it was free."
Free music doesn't mean you can use it freely.
Honestly so shocked this many people don't understand copyright laws, especially when they're "content creators" uploading content to Youtube. So I've been roaming around youtube, policing my own damn music.
Ain't nobody got time for that.
You need proper citation, that's why I used that license, and the license is RIGHT THERE.
So, so far, I had to flag 3 videos because I didn't get a response to "hi, but, this is copyright infringement."
It's so frustrating.

Okay, so I'm taking a break doing some Native Speaker trial articles, (yeah... I don't know what that is either) to do this entry.
First off, thank you for all your replies and kind words. Frankly, I'm unsure how to respond to some of them. Maybe I feel a little embarrassed writing that on Saturday.
I don't much talk about relationships here. In fact, I dare say, I've never mentioned so. Basically because it's far too normalized my loneliness. (Thus, the main reason for my title of Princess of Mars.)
I'm the sort of odd wheel out, causing the rolling machine to function improperly. Pretty sure this Native Checker thing is messing up my English. I think, as it's almost a month til my 30th birthday, I realize I'm so weary of doing everything alone. No matter what anyone in a relationship says, it's harder being single.
Simple things, really, like not having a shoulder to lean on, or someone to hug after a bad day, or a soup bringer comes when sick, or even someone to trust when there's no soul else to talk to...
That, essentially, weighs down on the psyche. And, as a society issue perhaps, causes some mental dysfunction to occur.
I wonder sometimes what it would be like, to be on the other side. (What do you mean, the side of what things?) But, I think, that just makes me sadder. Imagination is my greatest gift and ultimate burden. I'm tired of hearing I'll "find someone eventually", because that's been the go to remark from others since I was 13. And that is depressing.
So, instead, I go to all things art:
I can't see sun
We'll wash to the shore
Letting mood triumph forever more
All colors darken in hue
Rather tempting this mood
Still crystallize those tears
Keeping with frozen fears
My love, it'll be okay
One day we'll break away
Scratch the surface of this wall and let it be known
Fighting for all and never just one
For years I've tried to make sense of my loneliness, but there's no answer, it only creates beautiful things, sad things, and crazy things... all to share with others... but from a distance it must look trivial...
I didn't do a good job at explaining anything. -shrug-
TL;DR - English? Lonely? Mars?? ...Mars.

A silly question perhaps, but a genuine one.
Maybe no one understands what I mean.
It isn't that you're in a room by yourself.
Or walking through the city, not speaking to anyone.
Or even not having someone to hug.
I think I did it to myself.
That's what I get for being a Princess of a Kingdom so vast and barren.
And when I look around, seeing everyone else talking the hand of another.
In bliss. They look so happy.
Why are they so happy?
They have someone else.
I wrote this entry 7 times.
And this is what I came up with?

This is a two for one:
ACC: Ouch! I broke a nail!
Me: -hold it in Julie-
ACC: I just got my nails done too!
Me: -Don't do it Julie-
ACC: Does this nail look bad to you?
*ACC stands for Anime Clueless Co-worker
And Bonus Round:
Whenever someone, usually a crazed stranger, asks me to "say something in Japanese" I use this phrase:
Why? Because it's hilarious.
This is the first phrase Kenshin says to Kaoru in Rurouni Kenshin. (Yes, my Kaoru is that Kaoru as I cosplay Kaoru. Kaoru Inception)
What does it mean?
Um.... I'm a wanderer, a free journeyed swordsman.... (rough translation)
DUJ,C: You speak Japanese? Say something in Japanese!
DUJ,C: Cool! What did you say?
Me: ............It's a nice day, isn't it?
DUJ,C: Cooooooool, I wanna say that to people. Teach me! Teach me!
**DUJ,C stands for Doesn't Understand Japanese, Clearly.
No one's caught me talking like a wandering fictional swordsman so far.

If I wrote the title in English lettering it would've been fine.
Screw you site.
So I've been listening to DAOKO non-stop, specifically her new song ダイスキ with TeddyLoid... (Who, if you remember ME!ME!ME! do that song together)
I'm mad there isn't a video for DAISUKI, so take this instead:
(Fixed for formatting)
And I keep thinking, maybe possibilities are endless, sure, but in what direction to I want those possibilities to go?
I love music.
I make music.
I should work for a Japanese music company.
Seems so simple, right? Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
I have nothing more to say.

We complain about the site and suddenly Burnie starts posting a bunch?
I spent the whole weekend trying to move all my files/programs from senpai Shiba-kun to kouhai Toshi-kun (AKA my old laptop and new laptop) I say trying because I'm nowhere near done.
(4TBs of storage? FML)
Do you think writing in my resume "dear fucking Mars, please hire me, I'm bilingual and amazing as fuck" is a little too forward?
And now I've got that song stuck in my head.

Well, this FMA account seems to be working out nicely. 650 downloads and someone already used a song in their youtube video... against the copyright actually, lolsie oh law stuff, time to slap a bitch with a license agreement. Barely the 2 day mark.
If I'm not famous by October, I will be thoroughly disappointed.
Gif so highly unnecessary that it became absolutely necessary.
I like Japanese culture, dance, music, music composition, photography, writing, gaming, being me...
Friend me at will!
-Red vs Blue owns my soul, it's changed my life for the better...
<3 you all

I would certainly enjoy having some sort of sustainable income with my book(s)! Here's to hoping!
| Asked by: HOWtwoROCK 3 months ago
All of the above. ;D
There is! When I was younger, I associated very strongly with two specific anime characters, personally wise, who were Kamiya Kaoru from Rurouni Kenshin and Ryuuzaki Umi from Magic Knight Rayearth. I used their two names and stuck a 27 between the two, which 7 is my special nmber and 2 is a secret. ;) If I were to remake my username today it would probably be Misato27Kaoru (Misato from Evangelion)

I've never cosplayed a guy now that I think about it. A long time ago I wanted to cosplay Julia, but I never got around to it! Spike is too cool.
I have not actually, I would love to go! See my northern neighbors!

I'd probably say chocolate as well. I love green tea ice cream, so anything other than that is secondary.

Strangest? Umm, that I personally witnessed? Probably panty vending machine. And some back alley yakuza stuff. And school girls being silly school girls, especially when they fangirl and put on their socks. Little kids playing 'kancho'. Man, that's a tough question though, I've seen a lot! (>_<)
