hide awesome

(no subject)


I'd consider getting a second Ball Joint Doll within the year just so I can get this wig for it. XD It's so very hide-ish. *_*

By the way, the BJD I ordered already arrived at my house today. =D Once I get home for Thanksgiving break, I'm going to work on modeling it after Yoshiki. XD

If I do end up getting another BJD (and I probably wouldn't until a] I get to spend time with my Barron/Yoshiki one and b] I can make sure I have enough money left over at the end of the school year to buy a second BJD XD"), I'm trying to decide which one I should get between this one, and this one. ^^ Which one do you guys think looks the most like hide? o.o Face shape-wise and facial feature-wise, by the way, since the dolls come with different wigs and don't have eyesbrows/makeup painted on like in those photos (unless you specifically ask for it, which I won't be doing). XD"

And two BJDs total (in other words, the one I have already and the one I might order to model after hide) will definitely be my limit, considering the price of these things. XD"

By the way, I finally saw WALL-E today and it was awesome. =D Pixar = WIN. <3

This is the second day in a row that I woke up after only five hours of sleep for no discernible reason and couldn't get back to sleep. X_x

In other news, I'm sure most of you have heard by now that McCain is an idiot picked a pretty-much-completely-unknown woman named Sarah Palin to be his pick for Vice President. I received an e-mail that included this background information on her:

* She was elected Alaska's governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage. She has no foreign policy experience. (So, after the Republicans bashed Obama for having no experience, they pick this lady who has even LESS experience? Riiiight, because that's a REAL convincing way to prove your argument.)
* Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest. (Oh, and get this, according to this article, she's part of an anti-choice group called "Feminists for Life". How being against a woman's right to choose could ever be related to feminism is beyond me.)
* She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000. ("In a 1983 syndicated column, Buchanan wrote women are "simply not endowed by nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism." I don't understand how any woman could support someone who said that. Oh, and read the rest of his Wikipedia article, or at least the section titled "Social Conservatism".)
* Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools. (Yeah, sure it should. But only in the sense that children should learn that creationism is total BS.)
* She doesn't think humans are the cause of climate change. (And what else would be, huh?)
* She's solidly in line with John McCain's "Big Oil first" energy policy. She's pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won't be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species—she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska. (I had to bold that last part to emphasize how DISTURBING that is. Oh, and this article quotes her as saying "When I look every day, the big oil company's building is right out there next to me, and it's quite a reminder that we should have mutually beneficial relationships with the oil industry".)
* How closely did John McCain vet this choice? He met Sarah Palin once at a meeting. They spoke a second time, last Sunday, when he called her about being vice-president. Then he offered her the position." (...This part really speaks for itself.)

Still not convinced that this woman is completely unfit for VP? Well, try imagining her as PRESIDENT. That's right, if McCain (who just turned 72 a few days ago) gets elected and something happens to him, this woman will be running our nation!

In short: DO NOT VOTE FOR MCCAIN! And I know the majority of my f-list are Democrats anyway, but I still wanted to spread the word about this. XD"

Edit- I also just found out that she supports AERIAL HUNTING OF WOLVES, even though it was outlawed by Congress, and apparently wants to CENSOR LIBRARY BOOKS.
