Zuko Smile!
Caught Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds with Kura & family yesterday (it was great to see everybody!! :), and it was SMOKIN' HOT AWESOME PURE AURAL AMAZING. Nobuo Uematsu got on stage at the end to sing with the chorus for One-Winged Angel, and he was adorable. Totally into the music (and bouncing up and down, beaming beatifically, in a way that made me realise I didn't realise older men could be so endearing). hackney_ed wrote an amazing (and friends-locked) review here. ♥

AND NOW! ON THE AVATAR FRONT...



DUN DUN DUN DUN



ALL HAIL ZUKO, EX-PRINCE OF THE FIRE NATION!!!



The Avatar First Look photos are up on USA Today for Aang and Zuko.

My thoughts on racefail can be summarised as: "Please go watch Ember Island Players." (spoilers) I'm not dismissing the Very Real Cultural and Racial Stereotyping Issues At Stake Here, but I do think that a movie is a commercial enterprise just like any other, and like every commercial enterprise, it will come with commercial constraints.

If you want to RAEG at racefail, go on ahead to this post at racebending. The reaction post at avatarfans is over here. There is an interesting post by glockgal over here.

My personal (Zuko-centric) views, by contrast, are quite simple.

Dearly Beloved Zuko, I would love you regardless of the colour of the skin of the actor playing you. I fell in love with your character because you were 200% FLAMING EPIC LAME, EMO, ANGST AND FAIL in the manner I consider Deeply, Intensely Amusing. I would love you whether you were played by the (blond! and blue-eyed!) Jesse McCartney, whether you were played by Dev Patel, or any other Culturally Correct Casting Choice.

And that is all.

O.o;; Wow. You've completely confused my poor brain - and I have to open the shop today. *bleeds out of ears!*

Racebending. X.x I'll keep my comments to myself for now.
23rd-May-2009 07:03 am (UTC) - Makes magic sign with fingers!
Now you are un-confused!! :)

Look only at the pretty pictures, sweetie! ;) I am sorry I have no pictures of the girls of Avatar for you! :(
23rd-May-2009 06:40 am (UTC)
O: I did not know of this Final Fantasy thing! Otherwise I'd totally have climbed into your bag and snuck in with you!

Ah! They performed 'To Zanarkand'? *sobs forever at missing it*
23rd-May-2009 07:07 am (UTC) - T_T
I wanted to ask you for the next day performance, but the tickets sold out so fast... (T_T) Next time there is a FF concert; OK? :)

*exploits fonslot link! SHARES experience with you!!*
23rd-May-2009 06:59 am (UTC)
It's sad they didn't include Zanarkand He in the cd T_T I really liked that piece. Well, it's nice to know they're thinking of many future performances, maybe it'll become a lovely annual affair. :D
23rd-May-2009 07:12 am (UTC)
(T_T) Maybe I t will be on the next CD they release! :)

Along with DANCING MAN!!!!

And annual will be awesome. They can count on the demand! :)))

23rd-May-2009 07:14 am (UTC) - Huge you so tightly!
Your nudge revived me!!! I am slow but I am here!!! *loves you* Hope you're doing fine and only going crazy in the GOOD way!!
23rd-May-2009 07:18 am (UTC)

LOL ZUKO HAHAHA.
23rd-May-2009 06:05 pm (UTC) - ZUKO IS EMO
AND CRIES AT HIS CASTING.
23rd-May-2009 08:06 am (UTC)
YOU LIVE

Not seeing the movie because I'm not supporting their racefail, but I do so love Dev Patel and Zuko. ♥
23rd-May-2009 06:11 pm (UTC) - While this icon expresses Zuko's feelings for casting decisions made on his behalf;
I must use a different one for you.

23rd-May-2009 11:56 am (UTC)
I'm so jealous omg!!! DDD: You got to see the genius himself! T_____T; WHY AM I SO FARAWAY?

A-and lol, I can't wait for the live-action Avatar. Maybe somewhere after that I'll get my hands on the cartoon and start watching that. XD
23rd-May-2009 06:20 pm (UTC) - *squishes you!!!*
I miss you!! I'm jealous of SYDNEY because it has you and I DON'T. I wish you were here!! *hugs you so tightly* BUT!! NEVER FEAR!!! One day I am sure you will be able to attend such a concert too!! or we must HIJACK YOU FROM AUSTRALIA AND BRING YOU BACK. :D

... D: YOU COULD GET IT FAR FASTER THAN THAT, I THINK I SHALL FLY OVER TO SYDNEY AND PASS IT TO YOU. The movie will be very, very, very different from the cartoon; and I suspect that if you watched the cartoon you might want to see the movie; but it is not likely that you will see the movie and want to see the cartoon (T_T)
23rd-May-2009 01:58 pm (UTC)
reading the avatar uproar. heh. am amused (and somehow not surprised) by your love for zuko. hee.
23rd-May-2009 06:23 pm (UTC) - :D :D :D
wanktastic Avatar uproar. I totally get the anger; but then I think, 'Eh. If you don't like it, say your piece, and just stick to the cartoon if you like it better.'

Zuko is a delicious angstmuffin and I adore him. ♥ He reminds me of Kadaj. Only he has no awesome original source and hence is nearly all fail. He is full of great lines such as "WHY AM I SO BAD AT BEING GOOD!!!!"

♥ It is kind of bizarre how well people know me, because when I first started watching this series and fell in love with Zuko within five minutes of setting eyes on him, my crack-dealer friends who got me into it were, "I KNEW IT! I KNEW SHE WOULD LIKE HIM!!"
23rd-May-2009 03:22 pm (UTC)
I'm not going to watch the movie out of principal (and also because I have no faith in Shyamalan)--I'd be better served just rewatching the series instead! I like animated stuff better anyway and I don't know what I'll think about a Zuko without his awesome lispy voice. ;A; As for racefail, I'll leave the raging to people who feel like raging; I have to study ;A; On an unfortunate sidenote, Zuko's outfit looks like a cosplay outfit I'd make in an overnighter. Oh Zuko, I love you anyway. You too Dev.

I wanted to see Distant World so baaad but whenever it's touring and near where I am I'm too busy. ;=;
23rd-May-2009 06:34 pm (UTC)
Man, I agree with you re. no faith in M. Night. Also I commend your attitude to racefail. ;) Raging is for those with time on their hands.

... your overnighters are things of AWESOME. ;)

T_T Best wishes that your free time coincides with the proximity of Distant Worlds! *huuugs*

(XD! Even if you have changed your name, I will always remember you via your icon.) :D

DUDE MY PS2 IS MISSING WITH MY MEMORY CARD OF OVER 30 HOURS ON MY SECOND REPLAY ASDFING
23rd-May-2009 05:49 pm (UTC) - Guy expresses my feelings perfectly D:
oh no! :( That is awful!! Fingers crossed that you find it again soon D:

*SHIPS YOU OVER HERE TO WHERE MY PS2 is*

Good to hear from you, dearheart ♥
23rd-May-2009 05:09 pm (UTC)
No words. Just. Brb loling too hard. So much racefail, omg.
23rd-May-2009 05:19 pm (UTC) - Also! This.

I personally thing it looks not that bad. xD Way better than I expected! :D

Glad to you see around online. <3
24th-May-2009 07:09 am (UTC)
Woah, its awesome that you go to go for FF: Distant worlds. The tickets got sold out super fast! (not like the SSO concerts which I manage to get tics at the last minute for, lol.) Must have been spectacular.

LOLOMG NEWS ON AVATAR MOVIE!
I can't stop thinking about Slumdog millionaire whenever I see Dev Palev. And I thought that he didn't even HAVE a scar. (lol too much toning down?

200% FLAMING F-f-Flaming-ly gay? XD
But yeah, I agree, Much love for the character.

Hey aefallen, it's lizeth again. :)
I've been waiting and waiting for those photos for years. Now all I need is some trailers to tide me over until the movie. T_T

Hey hey, have you ever read a manga called "Defense Devil"? If you haven't try checking it out. It's on Onemanga and mangafox.
2nd-Sep-2009 02:40 pm (UTC) - LIZETH!
OH GOD I'M SORRY IT'S BEEN SUCH A LONG WHILE!

Same here, I've been waiting for that movie too! *beams* FINGERS CROSSED that if it is not half as good as we want it to be, it will at least be a FUN RIDE. :D

I just wanted to say that I recently read Defense Devil and it is REALLY, REALLY GOOD! You have great taste in manga, by the way. *beams* I love Kucabara and Bichula, he's adorable too! :D

I see you drew art for them as well! *beams*

2nd-Sep-2009 02:32 pm (UTC) - ... I AM STRANGELY FASCINATED
PART OF ME WAS "NOOO" AND PART OF ME WAS "NOW I WILL KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SAYING".

The subtitled Zuka Club Phoenix Wright, it is strangely compelling and fascinating. I find my eyes completely magnetised by the lead. I don't know what it is, I just find her very charismatic.

Thank you for the link! ♥

AM SO WATCHING LAST AIRBENDER TOO. *BEAMS*
