Surimuchan [Now] #21 – July 2017

July 31, 2017

Here’s this month’s Surimuchan [Now]~! Don’t forget that my second Surimu Chance! Contest is open until 11:59 PM on Thursday, August 3rd! It’s the post just before this one!

Entertainment
Anne with an E (Netflix) – I rather liked it, but I was a little surprised by how dark it got sometimes. Having never read the book(s), I wondered about the opinions of those who had, so I checked out reviews on imdb.com to find that the show had indeed deviated from the books and added some stuff. I also learned that I should probably check out the version from the 80s because a lot of people seem to love (and prefer) that one.
Albion: The Enchanted Stallion (Netflix) – Okay, so this might be on the same level as some of the “cheesy Hallmark-type B-movie fantasies,” but I watched this after a lot of not-so-great days, and it was pretty much exactly what I was looking for. ^_^
La Belle et la Bête (Netflix) – A live-action Beauty and the Beast~. As much as I love the Disney storyline (it is my favorite of the Disney Animated films), it was actually really refreshing to watch one that followed the original fairy tale more. It’s in French, so I couldn’t really work on anything while it was on, but that’s fine because I would have missed the lovely sets and costumes.
– As for music, one song that got stuck in my head a lot was, oddly enough, the entrance music for Mike and Maria Kanellis: True Love. XD
– I started reading “Phantastes, a Faerie Romance for Men and Women” by George MacDonald. I’m not too far in, but it’s got some rich imagery from what I have read~. =)

Purchases
Gachinko de Ikou! single – I really wanted a physical copy of this one, because it’s one of my favorite Buono! singles~.
– Some more wrestling stuff… I got some Jeff Hardy arm sleeves, but, unfortunately, they were too big. T_T A couple of the items were gifts (a List of Jericho clipboard for my mom and a Becky Lynch lunch box for my sister).
– A couple of items from the “Tsugunaga Momoko Memorial Event: Momogatari” (the USB as well as an A5 photo set).
– A Blu-ray copy of “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” – I’ve been waiting to see this since it was announced back in January~. I liked it! (HBK being in it was an added bonus~.) =D
Two C.S. Lewis books, both with various pieces from his various writings (Mere Christianity, A Grief Observed, Miracles, etc.)

Happenings
– The main thing, of course… I went to an NXT show on the 29th~! It was a lot of fun! I was super-excited to see wrestlers like Drew McIntyre, Hideo Itami, Ember Moon, and others~. ^__^ We stopped by Treasure City before the show, and I got a giant German chocolate doughnut sort of pastry after the show. XD
– I think it was near the beginning of this month… I was looking at something that was posted on one side of a door, and someone came through the door really quickly. I had been holding the paper on the door up to look at the one underneath it, so my arm was up and I took the door square on my elbow. O__O I haven’t lifted weights since, but I should be healed enough by now to start again. (^_^”)
– Another stupid injury… I was grabbing some boots from my closet while sitting on the floor. I had one hand on the floor while I opened the closet door with the other hand. I didn’t notice that the hand on the floor was so close to the door, so I ended up jamming the door into the fingernail of the middle finger of my right hand. It bent the nail back far enough for it to start bleeding, and I was in excruciating pain for the next couple of days. (The pain actually woke me up at one point.) orz But that’s all healed up now, too~.

Plans
My Neko Dance Set will be uploaded early next month. After that, I have a couple more SurimuChats to upload before I switch over to the shorter Surimu Stories for vlogs.

Recommendation
Lisa Michelle on YouTube~! She does amazing H!P song covers! =D

Surimuchan [ Now] #20 – June 2017

June 30, 2017

Entertainment
– I bought all six of the Marvel Oz comics on my Kindle (art by Skottie Young), and I’ve gotten through four-and-a-half of them~. I’ve always loved the Oz books, but I’ve been so frustrated with most of the adaptations because they always seem to stray so far from the books. These do a wonderful job of bringing the books to life, though! I only wish they could have done all of the original Oz books for this series… but I’m content with these few~.
– I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales earlier this month. I definitely preferred it to the last one, but nothing will ever, ever beat the first one.
– I played through Castlevania: Symphony of the Night again~! I actually did it about two hours faster than my fastest playthrough… but I had to sacrifice 0.1 percent completion to do so. orz I only had 200.3% instead of my usual 200.4%. Ah, well… XD
– For music this month… lots of °C-ute early on, then lots of Berryz Koubou, Country Girls, and Buono!… but I had a few super-random songs stuck in my head for a while. My brother was telling me how he had randomly watched the videos for some songs that had been popular a while back and he started played one. I was only half listening at first, but once the music started I automatically started singing along to his surprise (and mine actually XD). That song was “The Way You Love Me” by Faith Hill. After that, I also listened to “This Kiss” (also by Faith Hill) and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “You’re Still the One” by Shania Twain. They were all really popular when I was in about 3rd grade, so they made me really nostalgic. =)
– As usual, I’ve been watching RAW and SmackDown every week. I also started watching some older NXT episodes on the WWE Network.

Purchases
A bunch of older H!P CDs – They’re used, but in very good condition (it’s so much cheaper).
– A handful of songs on iTunes – Besides the five that I mentioned earlier (yeah, I bought them XD), I got some more WWE themes. (Tye Dillinger’s is super-catchy~.)
TICKETS~! I got tickets to an NXT show next month as well as tickets to this year’s TLC in October (the day before my birthday)~~!!! They were a bit spendy, but I’m really excited~.
– Misc. WWE merchandise – Against my better judgement, I bought a few more wrestling shirts (NXT, Breezango, and Sami Zayn), as well as a few mugs (two of them were gifts; the third was a clear Bálor Club mug), a Money in the Bank lunchbox (to store my dog tags), and the WrestleMania 33 Blu-ray (it wasn’t the most amazing show (it was SO long), but it had a few great moments, and it was the first WrestleMania since I started watching, so…)

Happenings
– °C-ute and Tsugunaga Momoko graduated from Hello! Project. This obviously has nothing to do with me, but I just feel a bit empty. TT_TT
– The first Surimu Chance! Contest began and ended… only two participants. (^_^”) Maybe no one wants to give out their address? Maybe I should try to change how I do these contests or something… orz
– In happier news, I had an impression taken of my upper teeth, so I believe my next appointment will be the deband check, which means my braces should be coming off sooooon~~~~! I can’t wait to eat trail mix again. XD

Plans
– I wanted to do a few summery MINI Clips next month, but I don’t know how much time I’m going to have. =/ I have one of them done (Chu! Natsu Party), along with one dance cover (Happy Summer Wedding), but my hours have been pretty much maxed out at work every week, so I don’t have a ton of down time. You may have to put up with a bunch of Surimu Stories in the meantime. m(_ _)m

Recommendation
– The original Oz books (by L. Frank Baum) and/or the Marvel Oz comics! I feel like Oz is one of those forgotten fantasy lands (even though there has been to~~ns of content coming out for it; it is public domain after all).

Let me know your answers in the comments~!! ^__^

And that was my May for 2017~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

~ Surimu-chan

Surimuchan [Now] #19 – May 2017

May 30, 2017

I’m actually rather excited about writing this instead of filming it~. XD

Entertainment
– For the first couple weeks of May, I listened to a lot of radio shows from the 30s and 40s because I couldn’t do much else at that time. orz
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – I enjoyed it. I’m not sure if I like more or less than (or about as much as) the first one, but it was definitely fun~. ^_^
– A handful of documentaries on Netflix (American Experience: Black Out; American Experience: War of the Worlds; Return to the USS Atlanta: Defender of Guadalcanal; Searching for Augusta: The Forgotten Angel of Bastogne; Tales of Irish Castles; and a few episodes from Ken Burns: The Civil War) – Interesting stuff!
Cool Runnings on Netflix – MY CHILDHOOOOOOD~~~! TT_TT =D ♥
Pokémon XYZ on Netflix – Am I the only one who gets extreme satisfaction when I get the “Who’s that Pokémon?” right? … I am? Okay… XD
– For music, I’ve been loving “Judas” by Fozzy, “Bibia Be Ye Ye” by Ed Sheeran, “Fantasia” by Tegomass.

Purchases
– An Undertaker T-shirt – It’s going to have to be my last wrestling T-shirt for a while. (^_^”)
°C-ute’s Complete Single Collection [Limited B] – All of the music videos~~! =D
Country Girls Music Video Clips Vol. 1 – YESSS! Dance shots for “Boogie Woogie LOVE” and “Koi wa Magnet”~!!! (Wish I would have known they were going to include these before I did “Ran Ra Run” ahahaha… orz)
– Miscellaneous stuff on YesStyle.com – The Stationery section of that site always ends up eating all of my money. XD

Happenings
– At the end of April, I got that same eye infection that I had last year (though it was in my left eye this time). That meant a few weeks worth of eye drops and blurry vision (due to the dilating eye drops). That’s why I was listening to so many radio shows. (^_^”)
– I had that stubborn tooth extracted on May 1st. Apparently, I held a full conversation, made an appointment, and posted a picture to Instagram (with necessary hashtags) without being fully awake… or aware at all, actually. XD The first thing I remember is resting my head on the back of the car seat while my brother picked up my medicine. XD My brother also told me that, when I was told I could sit up whenever I felt able, I immediately sat up like the Undertaker. He said something like, “Whoa, you looked like the Undertaker,” and I guess I said, “That’s what I was going for,” with a thumbs up. XD I don’t remember ANY of it.
– After the extraction site was healed over pretty well, the stitches started to come loose, but nothing fell out completely. It felt like a spider was nesting in the socket that was left after the extraction. O_O I finally had a piece of one of the stitches fall out last night. I put it on a piece of tape with a couple of the little bone chips that also fell out and made a smiley face. XDD orz

Plans
– If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that June is my gaming month~! Specifically… Castlevania: Symphony of the Night~~! This will be my eighth year in a row to play that game in June. =D
– If you’ve been keeping up with recent posts then you already know about these, but I’ll be uploading some °C-ute MINI Clips and a redo/Take 2 dance cover (plus the comparison video) in June before °C-ute disbands. I’m also working on something with a song that heavily features Tsugunaga Momoko since she’ll be graduating. orz

Recommendation
Oreo Chocolate Candy Bars~!! I posted a picture on my Instagram a while back. I’m totally addicted to them. I bought two of the big bars and two of the King Size two packs on Sunday, and I finished all of them by Tuesday morning. XD
