This, that, and the next thing
♙ I listened to Leonard Cohen's new album Old Ideas today. How am I supposed to get any work done with that voice whispering in my ear? So lovely.

♟I need to adjust my reading filters so I don't have most of your posts showing up on both LJ and DW. LJ is still my default. If you would prefer I read your journal on DW instead and you are still posting in both places, please check the box below. Otherwise, no action is required on your part. Thank you!

♙ It may be time for a Slam Dunk re-watch / re-read. As fun as flailing over tenipuri is, I'm craving an actual sports series. Though priestess123 has me all fired up for Hajime no Ippo again too! Which would you pick? Or do you have another suggestion?

♟I have started to watch Dark Shadows and by "started" I mean "watched 2 out of 1225 episodes so far". It looks like it will be great fun! Anyone else a fan?

♙ Too hungry to think of more things to write. Time for my shepherd's pie! (Technically cottage pie, I guess.) What are you having for supper?

Lol, I haven't read or watch either of those XDD But I can suggest things, like Kuroko no Basuke (getting an anime in April) or Area no Kishi (ongoing anime), I like both of these series, although not sure whether they can count as actual sports. Well, more sports than TeniPuri for sure. But Pokemon is more sports than TeniPuri, too XD

I've been watching Area no Kishi but I'm unconvinced as yet -- I think the 5th episode will help me figure out if I want to keep up with it.

Prince of Tennis is just SO WEIRD for a sports series. It doesn't seem to follow so many of the conventions.

I have been reading the manga before I started the anime, and I really liked it... So what is it you don't like about it, not enough hot guys? XD

I guess it's just not really a sports series, it's just a supernatural shounen disguised as sports series XDD

Well, Captain Tsubasa is a classic for a reason ^___-
But I've just started Kuroko no Basket too, looks quite good :)

I could never find Captain Tsubasa, not sure why. Maybe it's time for another attempt. And thanks for the rec!

I guess because it's too old?
But there was a remake of the anime 10 years ago, so if you spot a "Captain Tsubasa Road to 2002" anime (I'm pretty sure there were subs of that), it starts at the beginning of the story.

I vote Slam Dunk!

Also I filled the poll but anyway, I crosspost exactly the same content on DW and LJ so... whichever suits you better :)

Oh yes. I was a huge fan of the "new" series while my mom is an old series aficionado, but we're both hoping for some sort of cameo from both Ben♥ and David. We're definitely seeing the movie together opening weekend and hoping that Burton pulls a Sleepy Hollow rather than Wonka. Tough to tell.

Good to hear! I'm hoping I can get through a reasonable amount before the movie, anyhow. I love how the background music is basically all suspense, all the time. :)

Also, I am shipping Victoria and Carolyn.

I couldn't have dinner, because I felt sick again :/ I really need to adjust my diet again to stop this nausea.

Yikes! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Me too. I know what I need to do to get better ^^

If you're looking for new sports manga, and I mean sports manga, try out Baby Steps. It's like POT, except with tennis.

Haha. It doesn't have awesome battles with awesome moves and yaoi all over the place, just tennis. It's available on mangafox.com.

I should give reading Slam Dunk a try, but I'm always put-off by the old art style.
