Favourites

First off a quick apology about the highlighting. Blogger was being gay. In the bad sense.

I think I'm actually running out of proper questions with this thing. I knew I should have just made a post per question/prompt and spent five months on it. For now though a group of questions dealing with some of my favourite things.


A song from the 90s.
 
I checked Wikipedia, and this counts. It was released in late '99. Even if it didn't count it would have been something from Savage Garden. Besides, look at that sexy picture. I would do dark and disturbing (and illegal) things to Darren Hayes.
 
Favourite T.V show and why.
I can't pick just one really. There are plenty. I love sci-fi/fantasy stuff like Doctor Who and Heroes. I like some comedy as well. Cartoons too. Anime. Oh so much. I guess the show I've watched the most though would be the anime Naruto. I've watched every episode of it about 3 or 4 times. If you're going to count favourite based on how much I've seen it, that would be it I guess. Why do I like it so much? I'm not entirely sure. It just mixes some of my favouritest things ever. Plus the soundtrack is amazing. Just do your ears a favour and don't watch the English dub. I also greatly love Doctor Who (the reboot, though I have seen a few episodes of the original run), Frasier, Red Dwarf, and most superhero cartoons. From the 90's and 00's. Cartoons were weird as feck in the 60's. 
 
 
Your favourite blogs.
Too many. Let's move on. I would name some but I'm bound to miss some. I'd love to plug you all, but really I would be bound to miss someone.
 
Favourite theme song.
The English dub of Pokemon. When I got older I grew to hate the dub, and 4Kids in general, but I can't deny how epic that theme song is. Also the opening titles of the dub version of Cardcaptors. Again, it's a dub I came to not like so much, but that theme is still brilliant. 
 
 
I remember being so damn happy when they turned it in to a full song. I really hope it hit number 1. 
 
 
Is it bad I like a show (and a manga for that matter) made by girls, for girls? Of course not.
 
And that's it for that one. Though with the videos it ends up being a bit long anyway I guess. I hope you enjoyed this look at some of my favourite things. If you want to know some more of my favourites (or hey, if you just have any other questions) don't hesitate to ask.

    1. I watched Bleach yeah and I did enjoy it. I still read the manga. I barely watch anime at all anymore now. I love the Naruto movies. I've seen them all :) It was called Cardcaptor Sakura but over here they shortened it to just Cardcaptors. I do enjoy the anime but I have trouble watching it because of how much it ended up drifting from the manga.

  2. The Pokemon theme is from the very first season, is it not? I LOVED THAT ONE!
    Then they just made it lengthy. Only till they went to the Islands was enough.
    Johto was okay. After that was just overkill, IMO.

    1. Yeah it's from the first season, and there is nobody who doesn't love that song. It's just so fucking cool. I do love Pokemon but I do agree it's gone on for too long. Though I haven't seen it in ages. I may have to watch a movie later if I can find a subbed version. I want to see the first one subbed but I can't find a version of it. Bah :(

  4. I think "Affirmation" is one of my all time favourites.
    The kids introduced me to Red Dwarf. Love that too.

    1. Well you are Australian, so you must have gotten a lot of Savage Garden. I'd actually really love to go to Australia, just because Darren Hayes is from there. I want to see where the magic started.

  5. Heroes is awesome man, love this post dude, great choices with some of this stuff. I'm kind of sad that you're running low on questions because I love the series, I'd be tempted to do something similar haha, I'm running out of things to blog about daily to where I simply can't.

  6. Haha, my cousin was in loveeeee with Darren Hayes. She called herself Mrs Hayes and so on. It was kinda cute, till it went on for years. I don't know much about their songs other than I Knew I Loved You and To The Moon and Back, the latter which is perfect <3 Thank you for the wish <3

  7. I like Dr. Who because it's on PBS. I like any show on PBS. But I haven't seen much of the new Dr. Who. Does he still have a robot dog?

  13. Cardcaptors seems interesting! For girls by girls, but weird internet guys like it too!

    And you seen Naruto 3 or 4 times and you think thats a lot? Crap! I have shows I only half like I've seen more then that!

    My favourite show: Red Dwarf. I've seen each episode from season one to six over a hundred times each!! I watched it constantly growing up and had them on tape an watched and rewatched them (but that was before I had internet and before there was stuff to find on the internet!) and I remembe watching the first two seasons over and over for a few days as I packed my stuff up getting ready to move! And sometimes while playing computer games for two or three days continues, I watch season one to six then start over again and watch them all again!

    But maybe I'm just really obsessed with TV...

    Oh and my girlfriend likes the show and we watch it together, and also she watches them before she goes to sleep so sometimes I go to bed and the episodes are playing and I watch a scene or two before I turn it off!

  14. I tried to get into Naruto, but I stopped. It was good and all, but I'm more of a Bleach fan. Even though the series stopped, I still read the manga. A few other action animes I enjoyed were Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai, and Death Scroll which wasn't too bad, a bit old school. If you're looking for a good psychological thriller anime, I'd suggest you check out Paranoia Agent or Death Note (which I assume you've already seen).

  17. I've heard a lot of great things about Dr Who but I've never gotten around to watching it, even though I promised myself I would. Hmm, gotta do that soon. Ohhh I can't express my love for Pokemon! It's massive. My childhood right there. Though I prefer the norwegain dub theme song over the english :P

  18. I don't care about whether its a girls anime or not - I've watched two seasons of Cardcaptors thrice! ;)
    Pokemon theme just brought back memories...
