TK from Ling Tosite Sigure-Unravel

Have started the anime… Loving it but they are censored. Also have been urged to read the manga and so I have started reading it as well. Plus the anime only has 12 episodes and I am on ep 8. And I have three more eps to watch… And so to kill time til ep 12– Manga… D:

Love this OP. Thought I’d blog about it. D:

Please tell me… tell me how this place is supposed to work; just who lies within me?
I’m broken, broken in the midst of this world. But you’re smiling, blind to it all.

I’m broken anyway, so I halt my breath;
I can’t unravel myself, and even the truth’s in a freeze.
I’m breakable, unbreakable; going insane, unable to lose my mind:
Then I found you and felt something give way!

In this twisted world, my form grows more and more transparent, till it can’t even be seen.
Please don’t find me… don’t look upon me.
In this world that someone else imagined, I simply don’t want to hurt you.
So please just remember me, as vivid as I used to be.

Endlessly expanding solitude wraps around me, and I’m reminded of times I laughed innocently,
But I can’t move, can’t get loose, can’t move, can’t get loose, can’t move, can’t move!
unravelling the world

Something changed in me… I couldn’t change myself…
The two mix together, both of us facing destruction.
I’m breakable, unbreakable; going insane, unable to lose my mind;
But I won’t let you be defiled!

In this twisted world, my form grows more and more transparent, till it can’t even be seen.
Please don’t find me… don’t look upon me.
In this lonely trap that someone planned, before the future becomes unraveled,
Please just remember me, as vivid as I used to be.

Don’t forget, don’t forget, don’t forget, don’t forget…

I’m paralyzed by the the fact that I changed,
In a paradise of nothing I can change,
So please just remember me.

Please tell me… tell me… just who lies within me?

P.S. My blog just three. D:





I was watching Leena‘s video featuring her interview with author Harry Leslie Smith. Loved the interview by the way. And I will be checking out this book. Something else that caught my eye was this quote that Leena had put in the description box.

“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

Author Blake Nelson on The Prince of Venice Beach And The Rebirth of YA Literature

Originally posted on TIME:

Blake Nelson is the author of many critically acclaimed novels, including Recovery Road, the seminal coming-of-age novel Girl, and Paranoid Park, which was made into a feature film by Gus van Sant. His subject matter tends to emphasize the “adult” in Young Adult fiction, tackling mature themes like sexuality, death and addiction in a frank, sparse and unyielding manner that thrills his audience. Even as a 40something man, Nelson is able to wholly inhabit his always teenaged, frequently female protagonists, bringing them to life in a starkly realistic manner, sure to open the eyes of more than a few parents.

His latest novel, The Prince of Venice Beach, focuses on Robert “Cali” Callahan, a 17-year old runaway bunking down in Venice Beach, Ca., wiling away his hours roaming the boardwalk on his skateboard, playing basketball and trying to avoid trouble. When a private investigator asks him…

Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located about 12 kilometres off the coast of County Kerry. I have been going there once a year for several years now and the trip never fails to lift the spirit. It is Ireland’s Machu Picchu.


Boats leave for the island from the village of Portmagee between April and September, weather permitting. It is necessary to book at least a day beforehand as demand for places can be quite brisk. The following are some contact numbers:

How I Was Saved From the Titanic (1912)

A Survivor of the Most Dramatic Marine Disaster in the World’s History – Told Exclusively to Readers of the Semi-Monthly Magazine Section

By Charlotte Collyer

R.M.S.  Embarking on Fatal Maiden VoyageOf the many shocking things that I remember in connection with the lost Titanic, there is one impression that will never leave me. It is the irony of the faith that I had in the big ship. “She is unsinkable,” I had been told; “she is the safest boat afloat.” I had never been on an ocean voyage, and I was afraid of the sea. But I listened to the people who said: “Take the new Titanic. She cannot come to any harm. New inventions have made her safe; and then, the officers will be extra careful on her first trip.” That sounded as if it must be true; and so Harvey, my husband, and our…

nerd-glassesSince being a nerd has become cool I don’t like it any more. Big glasses are no longer the indicator of a visual impairment caused by too much reading, and pasty skin is less likely caused by long hours spent in libraries, archives or labs. It’s more likely the result of an overpriced holiday in Finland and cleverly applied make-up.

It is now socially acceptable, even hip, to be seen sitting by yourself in a murky café reading Camus. It is even more so if you’re wearing a baggy jumper you found in a charity shop, while frantically scribbling notes into your Moleskin notebook or are indeed staring into your MacBook. Not even questionable personal hygiene or unkempt hair are a safe indicator that the person next to you is a borderline genius.

On the other hand, real nerds are now heading to the gym to fight the pen pusher’s…

‘City of Heavenly Fire': Cassandra Clare chats with audiobook narrator Sophie Turner — EXCLUSIVE

Originally posted on Shelf Life:

[ew_image url="" credit="" align="left"]

The wait is finally over! City of Heavenly Fire, the sixth and final installment of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instrument series, hits shelves today. To celebrate the book’s launch, we’ve got an exclusive interview with Clare and one of the book’s narrators, Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner. The two chat about the best heroines, and Turner spills what fictional character she’d marry. (Hint: He can be found at Hogwarts!)

Veronica Mars’ Jason Dohring also contributes to the audiobook: “Sophie Turner is wonderful at imbuing young characters with humanity and feeling, and that’s why I thought she would be a perfect narrator for City of Heavenly Fire,” Clare told EW in an exclusive statement. “And Jason Dohring can turn on a dime from vulnerable to sinister, which is a wonderful quality in an audiobook reader.” Check out the video after the jump.
