I used to at least be able to write entertainingly about my depression. Why can't I do that anymore? What happened to my sense of humor? Because that's the only thing I've really got going for me in the personality sweepstakes. A few months after [livejournal.com profile] naomi_traveller stopped speaking to me, I stopped by her lj and found an entry where she gushed about a new friend she'd made and how nice it was to be around someone who was actually happy. Hey, it's not just my imagination, I really am a drag to be around. Great! Thanks for clearing that up!

I really need to find some way to get my ass out of the house more often. Right now I have nothing to talk about but Japanese TV. Do you want to hear about Japanese TV? No? Yeah, neither does anybody else. Go figure.

That said, I still cannot recommend Coffee Prince (which is actually Korean) highly enough. If you're actually interested for some bizarre reason, you can grab the torrent from here. That should be a complete batch of all 17 episodes plus the English subtitles. If you're on a Mac, it should be smart enough to decode the subtitles. If you're on Windows, download VLC Media Player. If you don't know how to use bittorrent, look it up, you're not a moron. If I can figure it out, so can you.

You should write about Japanese TV, regardless. Because you can make it entertaining, and it's better than not writing.

... wait a minute, you're using capital letters. Whoa.

I've been inconsistent about caps for a while now. I often have to remind myself to type in all lowercase, which makes me think maybe it's time to grow out of it.

You should write about Japanese TV anyway. It would be appropriately surreal, whether the rest of us have any idea what you're talking about or not.

If something moves you, it's okay to be moved.

If you write about "Dorama" (I think that's the right word), other people that like it will FIND you.

This might be a good thing...

Do you a world of good, that will. Maybe getting out for a daily walk. The research is showing that exercise is one of the most powerful anti-depressants out there (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-tian-dayton/exercise-the-best-antidep_b_106683.html). Exercise heals the brain and grows new brain cells (http://www.amazon.com/Spark-Revolutionary-Science-Exercise-Brain/dp/0316113506/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220454848&sr=8-1).

That, and it's something active you can do to feel like your hand is on the tiller.

What's your opinion on Nodame Cantabile? Kimi wa Petto? Should I bother with any of the Gokusen dramatizations?

I enjoyed the hell out of Nodame Cantabile -- it's extremely silly, but very charming. I haven't seen Kimi wa Petto. I hear good things about the Gokusen dramas but I haven't seen them myself.

Hana Kimi is a lot of fun, both the Japanese and Taiwanese versions. I preferred the Taiwanese one, myself -- the acting was *much* better.
