I didn't notice till morning because I spent all night watching Dekaren and Nodame Cantabile. Damn whoever did that (the hacking, not Dekaren and Nodame, which are awesome and need no damning from my part).

I should consider sleeping on my bed, for once *rubs back*

My birthday's tomorrow and I have absolutely not a clue of what to do. I don't think I'll get a family party because my schedule won't allow it. There's something of utmost importance that I've got to do this monday, and so I won't be able to arrive home till 10 PM or so, and I don't think

As of today, Gera and Kari are stopping by. I dunno if Javi's stopping by, but I guess we all could watch movies and order dinner or something like that.

And, for once, we have a decent weather. Too bad the house still feels like 4°C. :P

If there's a small chance kouryuuou's reading this, let me know what you want for your birthday. I know I can't send you something expensive, considering that I lack money AND your address :P but if you'd like something in particular let me know.

I wasn't really into Super Sentai fanfiction until I stumbled upon this (Magiranger, Hikaru/Urara, post-end).

I just wanted to rec this because I thought it was a pretty well written piece of fanfic.

I'm also freezing, but I guess that was implied three entries ago. :P

mplayer fangirling (if such thing exists) [Jan. 17th, 2007|02:41 am]
Mari
[mood |coldcold]

Lots of technobbable and run-on sentences below, skip at will.

Okay, so today (yesterday) I decided that my next experiment on Sungel would be compiling and running mplayer1.0rc1 with my shiny XUbuntu install. Problem is, Sungel is kinda, uh, lacking an internet connection. XD I've, fortunately, managed to locate a usb drive, from which I've been updating everything I needed to update so far.

To sum up the technobabble, I managed to compile (not without installing a couple of developer packages I had to download first) without the frontend. I gave up on the frontend when I checked the packages dependencies and said "okay, that's a whole load of dependencies and the hell I'm downloading those one by one". Then later on, Javi said there was a metapackage with all of those dependencies. Which, btw, I couldn't find. Bleh. I need my Restricted packages.

Anyway, back to compiling, I decided to compile without a frontend, gave a couple of odd errors but ./configure worked anyway. I forgot to use sudo on the first make install, oops :P After the second one I finally got an mplayer.exe, but it seems to me it didn't include the codecs over the compile, because when I tried to play a couple of videos it just gave me some weird screeching sounds. Since I was at a loss at such error, I decided to go have some dinner and then I forgot about it. Until now.

Then before that we found some interesting mplayer svn builds and we were drooling at the matrixview port those builds included. And this has got to be the geekiest thing EVER. I really mean it. XD

Thanks to Javi, now I'm running all of my videos over verbose mode with mplayer. Watching those numbers scrolling by is kinda entertaining (and hypnotizing). He's always whining about how Tai-Rei's recent encodings tend to cycle due to some odd problem that's got to do with the encoding or the fps or god knows what. Their files play fine over my CCCP'ed BSPlayer, but that's not the point here. XD Then there's the thing about T-N's encodings, which he has to resize manually by giving mplayer the proper parameters (since I usually run mplayer on fullscreen and my LCD isn't widescreen, I've got no problem whatsoever with whatever resolution you guys use (hey, aldalin and kouryuuou :P ); the video does lag a teensy little bit and sometimes the sound appears before the video, but it's nothing I'd whine about or nothing I can't solve with a couple of seeks XD

I think the konfabulator guys never thought of making zero a valid value. Either that or I'm not getting the correct value here. XD The thunderstorm icon is pretty cool though.

My "new" laptop, network name Sungel (ooh, Javi is so gonna have my head for that one *snerk*). There's not a lot to look at, granted, but my resources are pretty limited to begin with. I'm quite proud because it's the first time I've installed (X)Ubuntu on my own, save for the couple questions I asked Javi about partitions and a crashed process.

Yesterday was all spent into installing. Today is for testing mplayer and see if I need a custom build for this machine. ^o_o^ Oh, and watching DH too.

Also right now 24 is so pure love that I cannot begin describing it.

And also why did Gray Anatomy win a Golden Globe? >.> I haven't watched it a lot but it doesn't strike me as a golden-globe winner. Dexter or Heroes (at least from what Sola Kaji keeps mumbling about it) are more golden-globe worthy IMO. And as much as I would've prefered Michael C. Hall taking the Best Lead Actor for a Drama Series, Hugh Laurie's awesome (and his speech rocked).



This has got to be the best acceptance speech ever in the history of acceptance speeches.

I shut up now.

You know, I'd never watched a sentai movie that'd made me laugh that much. But I guess sentai movies are meant to make you laugh >.> Or maybe I'm thinking too much about it.

My parents are back from Mexico City. My sister recovered well, so thanks god for that. Mom and Dad brought my "new" laptop and I've been checking it these days... it's a darn old thing but, as soon as I update the bios firmware, I'll do some geeky things to it that I'm too lazy to describe (and I also want this post to be technobabble-free, for once).

I'm also officially a MagiShine/Sungel fangirl (which some sentai fans may have noticed by the music I'm currently listening to =P). So I made a colorbar (without rainbow colors, which pretty much beats the concept of a colorbar but who the hell cares) of MagiShine, which I'm sharing with you, if any of you want to take it. I can pretty much count the toku/sentai fanboys/fangirls on my flist with one hand, but hey, it's worth a shot. :P

Note to self: ask sister to lend me Love Actually. Then I'll go rent whatever movie I can find with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in it. >.> And popcorns, lots of popcorns. And preferably by myself, because I tend to be really annoying with my constant "awwwwwwwww"-ing when I watch romantic movies. A movie marathon with the theme "Hugh Grant and Colin Firth are <3".

I've been playing Twilight Princess (the GC version) these two days and it's awesome. Too bad I'm quite behind in things known as house chores and sleeping habits, so I can't play it that often. Thanks, dear nephews, for lending me their GC.

I also played the Pit of 100 trials from Paper Mario 2 and died on the Level 99. Yeah, it's really frustrating.

er, right, have a happy new 2007 and may all your wishes and resolutions for this year become true, yadda yadda yadda. I can't think of something coherent right now, all I know is that I want to kill the SCT. >.>

Being alone with a christmas tree and two cats is kinda boring... but I guess I can cope with it. XD

P.S completely unrelated to the new year: Hugh Laurie's dubbed voice sucks :( he doesn't sound cynical at all! He sounds... anything but House-ish. Whoever casted the actors for the spanish dub sucks at casting, really.

P.S #2: I'm getting a Dreamcast.

P.S #3: Sister's fine and well, her surgery went fine so probably my parents will be back by next week or so. Meanwhile I've got to keep the house clean till they're back.

P.S #4: WATCH MONSTER. I DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T WATCH ANIME AT ALL, YOU MUST WATCH MONSTER. D:

The scary thing is, now that my parents are gone to Mexico City, I'm actually scheduling things to do. Next thing I know, I'll be actually fulfilling an entire schedule, onoes.

Speaking of which...

Tomorrow: Waking up around 9-something, heat up those tamales 'cause I'm sure as well not touching the things that Cyntia claims as frijoles a la charra >.> Next, I'll sweep outside and inside as well, then I'll be meeting Kari to go downtown to deliver a few things, and then I'll be back before dinner.

Wednesday: Haven't thought my morning yet, but sweeping outside and going to the movies to watch A Night at the Museum is in the plans, then I'll stay up late with Kari 'cause she's staying the night (oughta tell Cyntia about it)

Thursday: Breakfast with Kari, sweep, oughta finish those tamale >.> probably at this day I'll receive visits from my nephews to play the GC version of Twilight Princess and help my nephew with Paper Mario 2. I oughta tell Cyntia about that too.

I haven't thought of something for the weekend, but I guess I'll come up with something by thursday or so.

There's a tree now. Kari and I put it together and it's pretty. Now I just need people to admire it. :(

Parental units just left... leeeeeeet's parrrrrty! [Dec. 25th, 2006|11:56 am]

[Listening to |Kenji Kawai - Etorofu]

No, not really. My sister Cyntia told me not to organize parties with, I quote, "muchachones", which I'd roughly translate as "cute boys" even though I'm well aware that I'm straying from the original word. :P

Today began as a great day, then I went to sleep, and I woke up with my throat just as bad as it was yesterday. At least I'm not coughing.

So! I've got all the house for myself. After swearing to my parents that I wasn't going to organize any parties (for christ's sake, I feel like I have a hangover and I didn't drink anything yesterday) or make any considerable mischief, I was given money to survive and a lot of food to put up with during these two weeks.

I got 100 bucks. Half of it was a christmas gift from mom, the other half was from dad, who remarked that it should be enough to cover any of my expenses during these two weeks. Although part of me is screaming "BUY THAT DAMNED DREAMCAST YOU DUMBASS" the other part, the reasonable one, says I should save and wait for next week. That's what I'm doing. I will, certainly, buy christmas gifts for my closest friends first, then I'll buy postcards to send to whoever's addresses I have (addresses! gimme! comments screened) and that'd be all.

As for these two weeks, I've strictly forbidden myself to get anywhere near a restaurant. I'm not eating out during these weeks. Hope that helps saving money.

Kari's stopping by tomorrow, we might go to Karu's store and return him his damned DVDs. Then I'll lurk around downtown and try not to spend all my money at the arcades. >.>;


On the bright side, I can listen to my favorite music without being interrupted. ^^ /me plots bringing the stereo and put it where the printer is right now >:D
