On March 31st, 2006, during the official one year anniversary of the site, absolute tragedy struck the Gallery section as all of the figure shots I had taken with my digicam completely vanished from the server, with no recovery option whatsoever. Instead of celebrating the one year maintenance of this very here website, which by the way I had no intention of running for as long as it did, I was instead in complete grief. All that work of trying to take the “perfect angle shot” had disappeared and stupid me never even once considered to backup my photos. But today that lesson has been learned by this still inexperienced blogger. After missing for nearly three months with little hope of returning home, I have finally brought back photographs of these aesthetically pleasing figures, which will forever carry the label, “the lost galleries” …

====================================================================

Well now that I got all that taken care of… I guess I should quickly list just some of the things I’ll be up to later on throughout next week, (in case anyone’s interested.)

  • As any World Cup fan knows already, Brazil and England were both sent home early in yesterday’s quarterfinal matches. Disappointed as much, I’ll still continue watching but won’t be as excited as I previously was before. Still, congratulations to France for doing what many teams hope to one day accomplish themselves, (eliminate a long-time defending champion.) They played a great defensive game against my own team, so I have to give them credit for that. Now to see just who will reach the finals this year.
  • Getting back to anime, we’re just hours away from the Chiba TV’s broadcast of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu’s final episode. I’ll be sitting here checking my usual raw sources for this one. Also I can’t see why the staff wouldn’t consider a second season, seeing as how dominant and successful the show has been over these past few months. Guess time will only tell. (By the way, NHK ni Youkoso TV will take over it’s time slot.)
  • Otogi Jushi Akazukin TV and Mamotte! Lollipop are two shows that I wanted to cover next, however, after work, I’ll have to drive over to Anaheim, (where AX ’06 is being held at the moment), here in California because my sister and her friends need a ride back from that Hyde concert that’s going on at the nearby House of Blues. Ain’t that a bitch!
  • Expect an entry filled with nothing but PVs later next week. (My apologies to those who’ve been waiting for their PV requests.)
