So! Guess what game got an iPhone port?



Oh baby.

It's $18, which gave me pause for about five minutes. Really, it's one of my all-time favorites; how could I resist? They revamped the battle system to work on one screen, and this might be sacrilegious, but I'm not sure which version I like better. It's just that good. Mingling's going to be a bit more troublesome this time around, but that should only bother psycho completionists like me, really. All in all, it's pretty epic. And fun. Obscene levels of fun. Damn, TWEWY's still good.

$18, though. Seriously, Square? You couldn't have scraped that down to $10? At a lower price point, I'd talk everyone I know into buying it, but when you're dancing near $20... phew. That's a hard sell.

You know that thing where fangirls get all excited and say that they're "shaking and crying"?

Yeah. Um.

SHAKING AND CRYING RIGHT NOW.

Because I've been meaning to do this (and because I need to convert [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane to the awesomeness), here's a few recent Kane/Toews fics I've loved, summarized in three words:

Tied If We Stay - TWITTER RUINS EVERYTHING
Your Daddy's Aim is True - MAGIC CUP BABY
Promise I'm Worthy (To Hold In Your Arms) - TEENAGE HOCKEY RIVALS
Tour de Force - SECRET NOVELIST KANER... okay, this is more than three words, but if you only read one fic, make it this. It's somehow insanely IC while also being awesome and adorable and hot. It's so good.

Cut for a large image. )

I was aiming for a backstage scene, a bit shady, a bit glitzy, with a performer who might be of any gender or any race or even any species. It was a blast to draw, and I got to inspire two very different and very awesome stories!

Seriously, this was too much fun. I gotta do this again next year.

I heard an amaaaaazing cover of that horribly earwormy "Call Me Maybe" song earlier, and it got me thinking about covers that change the genre of the song entirely. Off the top of my head, I'd recommend Call Me Maybe covered by Ben Howard (this is the one I heard today that blew my mind), Whatever You Like covered by Anya Marina, Umbrella covered by Vanilla Sky, and my personal favorite, Firestarter covered by Jimmy Eat World.

How about you guys? What are your favorite musical reinterpretations?

Check out this video:


Nifty! Now check out this explanation of what's happening in the video. Even more nifty!

I'm particularly partial to this bit at the end:
Some people think that science takes away the beauty and wonder of the world, but it doesn’t. It adds to it. It takes something we don’t understand and turns it into something we do. Instead of spinning conspiracy theories, we can use science to help us construct a more accurate, more complete, and more true view of the Universe. And yes, more beautiful as well. I’ll take the beauty of truth any day of the week.
