excuse me, are you a voice actor?

So, new layout ♡, and if it isn't the girliest layout ever that has ever been on this LJ - well, it is. It's been completely Nia-ified, because that's how much I adore her, and you just knew this LJ was going to be Gurren-Lagann'fied one day, didn't you? It would have been YGO'd up: I even had the graphic and everything, but the one thing I lack is time to code. Incidentally, kotomine linked the Lollipop MTV, by Mika, and I thought it was perfect music for the layout.

The rest of this post is probably the dorkiest thing (dorkier even than this and this) you'll read all week. Maybe even all year.



I met Jounouchi's voice actor. And got his autograph. And typing up this post is taking forever because it's making me go scarlet and want to stop for long moments just to calm down. I know this is the silliest thing ever but Jounouchi is my hero, so anything connected to him means instant worship from me, so. God, my face feels like it's on fire!

It was because, all of a sudden, my Dad announced that he had tickets for Beauty World, and as my mom and sibling were in Greece and the other sibling was in camp and I was the only one free and didn't mind seeing it again, I went with him. It was the last night, and it was great. And then I learned that they were having an autograph session after the show.

So the minute the performance was over, I was, "Dad I'm going! :D" and was out of there, and as a result, I was first in line for the autograph session. And shortly after I arrived this guy turned up and he really reminded me of Hector from Blades of Glory. In just about every possible way. And behind him were these four tiny tiny little girls who were very cute, and all of them wanted autographs.



And - he was really nice. He was very warm, and very sweet, and even cuter in person than he was on stage. Just like the perfect boyfriend who you can't wait to bring home to meet your parents. Because it was the last night, all the main cast came out to sign autographs, and being the first in line meant that there was time to actually talk to the cast. So. I. Er. This happened about halfway through the conversation:

Me: "I've heard your voice acting work, and I think it's great!" (you know, I thought it was going to end there, and then I'd go)
Him: "Oh, wow! Which role was that?" (he is so genki, and so cute, IRL)
Me: *DIES INSIDE ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES* "... Joey. From Yu-Gi-Oh."
Him: "Oh, Joey!" *grin* *switches voice* " 'Hey, Joey! Dude, what's up?' "
*switches voice again* " 'Joey! Watch out!' "
Me: *TOTAL INTERNAL EXPLOSION*

And so I was, "I read you were trained overseas, so is that how you got your accent?" because obviously I am the worst stalker ever So then we started talking about accents and switching accents, and he said that he switches between accents for roles and it can be difficult, at times, and I said I completely related because I lived in Britain for a time and found switching occasionally difficult when I would automatically use the wrong accent when talking to hawkers, and he was, "I have so much difficulty communicating with hawkers too!" He asked me if I was interested in voice acting, and told me that another cast member also did voice acting work, and she was very sweet, too:

Her: "Oh! Are you a voice actor, too?" *smiles*
Me: *grin!* "Uh, no, actually, I'm a trainee lawyer."
Her: *grins* "A lawyer? Don't worry, all lawyers become actors in the end."



But the cast really was amazing. I told them this was the second night I'd come to watch them and that they were great, and they all were incredibly nice. I keep expecting a lot of showbiz people to come across as very dismissive, abrupt and brusque, and I'm always delighted to be surprised by exceptions to my assumption.

I found Dwayne Tan's five-minute showreel. DEAR GOD it is full of facepalm and WTF and MORE WTF, and if you skip to 2.51 minutes in, he's this tough-talking Ah Beng character with dyed hair who is basically gangster!Joey. I think it's TCS 5's Triple 9 (EDIT, sarahcoldheart correction says it's Heartlanders. Also, have his Singapore Idol - Go the Distance performance. AHAHAHA just have his youtube profile, it has all his work listed there.

and I will go shut up now

I find that the way my layout looks depends on the browser! ;) On Internet Explorer it looks normal, but when viewed on Mozilla it's something special: on Mozilla, the icons and images on my original post have a special image effect that makes the pictures look muted, until you run your mouse over the pictures, and the image colours light back up! It's quite funky. Check out the Gurren Lagann Nia and Simon post to see what I mean. ;) The special effects show up there if you're on the appropriate browser.

I'm not really 100% here.
XD:

[the image that is appropriate for this post is a MASSIVE Gurren Lagann spoiler, so I'll um, skip it for the time being, but]

almost here


Did I hear you right
'cause I thought you said
Let's think it over
You have been my life
And I never planned
Growing old without you

But when I need you
You're almost here
And I know that's not enough
And when I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'cause your only almost here

I would change the world
If I had a chance
Oh won't you let me
Treat me like a child
Throw your arms around me
Oh please protect me

But when I need you
You're almost here
And I know that's not enough
And when I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'cause your only almost here
