This weeks eroge

I am quite late to the party on this one, but I started playing a few days ago.

A delightful tale of a seemingly ordinary young man who drinks an experimental potion by mistake, thinking it is a type of medicine for dizzy spells he was having, only to wake up the next morning as a female.

I won't go into any more details at this point, I don't want to spoil anything for people who may not have played it. But so far, I'm finding it kinda fun. Has anyone else played it? If so, what did you think?

There has been some great posts about music recently (Natsume's post was fantastic for example!). I thought I would post some music I have enjoyed for quite some time. I figure though, that it may be somewhat inaccessible. It is kind of strange I guess, and not for everyone. It also takes a certain mood, for me at least.

First up is a song that is collaboration between the band Boris and noise guru Merzbow. It is actually a cover of an older song named Flower Sun Rain by Pyg. 

It is a slow and long track, towards the end it becomes really heavy (to my ears at least).

Wata from Boris also released a split EP with one of my favorite "folk" musicians from Japan, Ai Aso. Her music is often quite melancholy, but soothing also. Folks who like stuff like The Velvet Underground would probably appreciate it. I was looking for a song in particular to post, but I couldn't find it so..

Then there is Kazuki Tomokawa. I first heard his music when I was, gee, probably 15. And I have been listening to his releases ever since. It is really filled with emotion. Really devastating music, especially when one learns of what has inspired him at times.

And another track from the "screaming philosopher", Tomokawa. This is an interesting one because it is a video from him performing in the movie IZO. IZO was directed by Takashi Miike, of Audition and Ichi the Killer fame. Two of my favorite movies (Audition in particular).

Sorry for so many videos at once! Arrrrrg, it is hard not to get carried away!

A little about myself.

It is hard to know where to begin, and writing this type of thing is difficult.

I'm 23 and live in Australia. Left school at 14 for obvious reasons, worked for a month when I was 15 and haven't really worked since. I moved overseas for close to a year when I was 17, but that didn't really work out so I moved back home. The majority of those years were living like a hermit. I've had a fair share of weird experiences and met a fair few interesting folks over the years too.

At the moment I'm working through a TESOL course and plan on living abroad again next year. I've pretty much dropped out of every other course I've tried to do, but this course is by correspondence and I am fairly motivated really.

My main interests and hobbies include shmups, gaming in general, visual novels, reading and all the other obvious stuff. I suppose I'll post the interesting stuff (if there is any) that comes up in my day to day life!
So, what is everyone thinking about Atlus' new project, 'Catherine'?

I'm thinking it is looking really intriguing, but to be honest I don't know a great deal about it.
I am hoping there will be some type of localization!

DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu

So, DDP DFK is coming out 25 of November. Everything is looking great so far. Arrange A looks really similar to DOJ and Arrange B looks intense as shit.

I'm counting down the days. Can hardly wait.
