Project Diva Future Tone is Heading West! 

It’s official! Both parts of SEGA’s Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone will be heading to North America and Europe January 10th, 2017! The game will be available for download on the same day for PlayStation 4. 

What is Future Tone? It’s the largest Hatsune Miku game yet, with 200+ songs and 300+ costumes for Miku and her digital friends to play around with. Plus, it’s the arcade incarnation of the Hatsune Miku games, meaning there’s a slightly different control scheme. It’s more of the same great Miku action across five difficulty levels (If you’ve been nailing songs from Project DIVA X on EXTREME, just wait until you load up EXTRA EXTREME in Future Tone.)

The two parts of Future Tone - Future Sound (which features songs from the Project DIVA games) and Colorful Tone (which has songs from Project Mirai games and arcade songs) - are priced at $29.99 USD each. For fans that want both, they can get the bundle at a discount price of $53.99 USD. “European prices will be commensurate to the US Dollar pricing.“

The wait is almost over, Vocaloid fans! 

What Kind of Punk are You?
  • Stonepunk: The use of time period-accurate materials to make contemporary contraptions ("Stonepunk doesn't exist" you might be saying "It's too far fetched!" Well, go to your dance search engine and look for "The Flintstones")
  • Sandlepunk: Old Greek/Roman style and ingenuity combined with post-modernism
  • Clockpunk: (Can be its own Punk) Renascence era, or 'The Age of Enlightenment' aesthetic with modern contraptions (I like to think of Ella Enchanted with the crank escalator and such)
  • Edopunk: Post-modernism combined with the Japanese Edo period. It could also be called that if something like steampunk were combined with traditional Japanese aesthetic
  • Steampunk: A healthy combination of Victorian ingenuity and aesthetic combined with some contemporary/futurism technology and concepts
  • Dieselpunk: (It can also be its own Punk) A combination of the oil age and contemporary/futurism
  • DecoPunk: (Can be a subset of Diesel) Focuses on the 20's-50's Art Deco design (I know one person who would love this)
  • Atompunk: 1940s-60s modernism, which includes the Atomic age and the Space Age (could also be considered Raygun Gothic)
  • Nowpunk: Contemporary Punkness... Not really too much to explain.
  • Cyberpunk: Extreme futurism normally associated with dystopia (The Matrix is a great example of Cyberpunk)
  • Biopunk: Focuses on the underground bio-technical revolution. This is different from Cyperpunk because it focuses on biology, not technology
  • Mythpunk: A combination of post-modernism and mythology and folklore.
  • Dreampunk: The use of any of the above Punk styles and combine it with Fairytales and storybooks (I have this kid an idea to write a story about a time-traveling Red Riding Hood and it was ecstatic about it)

BikeTopia: Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction Stories in Extreme Futures - YouTube

I LOVE the Microcosm publishing Feminist Bicycle SciFi stories!  Elly Blue is running a kickstarter to fund the next iteration, and while they’ve already hit their target, it’s well worth funding as they have fun rewards - you can sign up here

Capitalism is practically a four letter word these days, so it’s easy to see why it’s a feature in many dystopias and the more grim sci-fi futures.  However, there are times when a capitalist economy flat-out doesn’t make sense, especially in futures with extremely overbearing governments or apocalyptic-like resource shortages.  So in the interest of getting some variety in our speculative future, here’s some options to consider.

  • Barter.  A classic practice that doesn’t necessarily have to mean regressing to primitive societies.  Barter systems can be incredibly complex, and they’re handy for any decentralized society or mixed economies.  (For example, lower classes might subsist on a barter system and only use standard currency when dealing with taxes/rents/etc.)
  • Planned.  Especially in a totalitarian government, planned economies can run without any currency at all.  The factory makes what it’s told to make, the workers receive what the government allocates to them, and that’s all she wrote.  (At least until barter/black market/bribes take over.)
  • Participatory.  Much like a planned economy, but with more people (and at lower levels) making the plans.  Also good for decentralized government systems.
  • Subsistence. A system in which little to no excess goods are produced.  Each unit, whether they be a family unit or a village or city-state, etc, is self-sufficient and does not expect or depend on economic growth.

A few more points:

  • You can’t buy what doesn’t exist.  It’s really impressive how many resource-scarce dystopias don’t understand this.
  • Currency doesn’t have to mean cash.  For much of history, wealth meant land or livestock and very little of it was actually liquid.  All that’s required for something to be official currency is that the government accept it as payment for taxes.  If you can pay your taxes in bags of rice, then accepting 25,000 pounds of the stuff is suddenly a good deal, not ‘more rice than I’ll ever eat in a lifetime.’
  • The value of specific items changes.  A family with oodles of rubies and gold in a vault may find all that worthless three generations later when wealth is measured in cattle or lumber, or (in the opposite direction) if space-mining floods the market with previously-rare rocks.

Kai has the potential to be extremely dangerous. Future supervillain material. BUT where he is in life at the moment means he could go either way- superhero or supervillain.

  He’s a contradiction right now. On the one hand he wants to keep his head down and get through school, go to college, own an art shop. But on the other hand he has his sister’s killer trapped in his sketchbook- and he has to wrap the book in blankets to muffle the man’s screaming. He has this vicious streak in him, born from grief, that he’s not sure how to stop.

2016.

In early June of 2015 I was contacted by a Korean entertainment company called Big Hit about being apart of a show called American Hustle Life. I was asked to be a mentor of Korean hip hop group BTS and of course I was honored and accepted. I researched and watched their videos and saw that they were talented and hard working and I’m looking forward to our time together in June of 2016. I hope to show them the rap I grew up with and hopefully they will learn from me and I will learn from them. Extremely excited for the future!

  • Daemon: I don't have a ton of contact with the Vongola, but, before I left, I took a box of Knuckle's stationery. So, from time to time, I send Knuckle letters. From himself. From the future.
  • (cut to Knuckle reading the letter from Daemon) Knuckle, at 8am today, somebody poisons the coffee. Do not drink the coffee. More instructions will follow. Extremely, Future Knuckle
  • Knuckle: NOOOOO! (after seeing Asari leave the break room with a cup of coffee, runs and knocks it out of his hand) You'll thank me later.

anyone remember when the writers of a show you watch had your otp lie beside each other on a bed for 9 entire seconds for no apparent reason other than to highlight the copious amounts of ust between them while simultaneously reminding the audience to pay attention to the words left unspoken here because they are and will come to be extremely important in future episodes..

                                        because I fucking do. :))

A customer at work tonight talked to me for 5 mins and told me he could tell that I was strong, independent, hardworking n that I’m most likely going to be extremely successful in the future n honestly that makes me feel so damn proud of myself if a complete stranger can say that about me in a matter of minutes

Bad Date Bingo

(This was my favorite story that I wrote for the Kent Parson Birthday Bash fic exchange.)

Summary: Kent comes out. The team takes it surprisingly well. Perhaps too well, honestly.

In which Kent is showered in blind dates by his team. A bunch of times when it goes wrong, and once when it goes right.

Read it in its entirety on AO3! But here’s Kent’s bad date bingo board, because AO3 wouldn’t let me include the formatting lines.

Also, many thanks to @des-zimbits for the loan of Grumpowski to serve briefly as a gruff, Polish Johnson!

Look below the cut for extremely sappy future headcanons about Kent and the guy he actually gets to go on the good date with.
