I've been a bit busy with other things, so this is a bit late. Sorry.

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. [community profile] snowflake_challenge

Now, I decided to "return to roots" with this, so to speak, and offer something that I haven't really talked about before: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I reeeeally liked the Major, and she was a bit of a formative influence, I think. But what I've carried with me the most is the music. Not limited to Japanese and English, but also spanning such languages as Russian and Italian in a much more global than usual linguistic palette, the lyrics are more than word salad evocative of a feel and instead rather gut-punchy in places, and it's all COMPOSED BY YOKO KANNO.

Here are some of my favorites:
Inner Universe

I Can't be Cool

Date of Rebirth

(a translation (scroll down a bit to see romanized Russian + >English side by side))

(With "gif", of course, pronounced analogously to "gift".)

One of the perils of being a book fan who listens to music is encountering loads of pretty lyrics and not having any fandom thing to use to promote them. Here are my combined music recs and texty recs. I'll be adding to this over time.

For the fen of visual media )
