Am currently in love with Obadiah Parker's cover of Outkast's Hey Ya...Check out the video here.
I also threw out a couple of years of Pafu yesterday. It was...painful. But I do feel better. Lighter. I need to let go of more of my books--I already have, but I do really need to cull. The annoying thing is that it's hard to find new homes for the BL titles. Who will take them? I don't want to throw away perfectly serviceable books needlessly...
I checked out a recommendation by Amazon Japan for a book called Namida no naka wo aruiteru by Mizuhara Tohru and had to snort. It's about a college student who meets again a guy he'd met when he was a little kid and the guy was a nice resident at a hospital, at a gay bar. And goes home (or perhaps to a hotel?) with him. And is treated really badly (as in not really consensual BDSM). But he endures and goes back for more in the hopes that the sadist doctor will like him. Because he was nice that one time a long time ago, which doctor doesn't even remember. Yes, really. The lone review is pretty harsh, I had to cackle when I read it because it sounds like something I'd write in disgust. XD Found another review that's also not that favorable here. That review describes it as a "someday my prince will come" story in which the prince is super sadistic. I almost want to read it to see just how much I'd hate it, but since I already know there's a 99% chance that I'll hate it (spineless pathetic uke + probably pointless graphic sexual nastiness = me hate) I really shouldn't. Plus, I kinda remember reading some other book by this author with a sadistic seme and a totally pathetic uke who endures, and not liking it much. :P
