Sorry I couldn't do the show tonight, guys. I'm sick as a dog, and have been for two days now. I just got bagck from the doctor, and they say chill out for a while.
I should be better for next week.

Good news everybody!
BIG EYES BIGGER TENTACLES
will return this November
As you can tell, I'm pretty excited. Expect a few changes, but the original format will remain largely the same. The music genres are anime, Jpop, game music, and I have decided to formally expand the repertoire to remixes, filk, and geek. As ever, anything random that catches my fancy will likely appear. Who knows, I might have to run an extra night a week just to get in all the musical goodness! I'm expecting the first show will be filled with stories, namely to the tune of what I did with the bulk of 2006, where it all went, and new music released in 2006.
The hours are currently projected to run Thursdays 7-9 PM Eastern. As I know I'll be back on air in November, I have not yet picked the day. It depends largely on my IRL schedule.
More notices will follow as events warrant, but consider the Request Line officially open!

In the spirit of reviews of songs in the "Theme of the show" I provide
Song: Pretty fly for a rabbi
Artist: "Weird Al" Yankovic
Album: Running With Scisors
Parody of the song "Pretty fly for a White Guy" that is quite entertaining. Though it relies primarilly on sterotypes of rabbis I found this song quite funny. Like a good episode of "Excel Saga" it warps the mind and leaves it a quivering mass of jelly.
It's been a while!
I know it's been a while, folks! I just wanted to send out a disclaimer that I will probably be at Akon this year, barring familial obligations. This is also a disclaimer to the effect that I haven't forgotten you. Though there is no established ETA for the return of Big Eyes Bigger Tentacles, I wanted it known that as of this moment, there are definitive plans to return, preferably well before November 2006. I just regret that it's taken this long already to say, "Um...Sometime?" ...I'm sure you've all heard the drill: no plans until the dust settles IRL.
However, until that time, I propose that this journal, which has been gathering dust for too long, be used as an Anime/Jpop/Game/Geek music review. I'd like to concentrate on whole albums, but lone songs are good too. Everyone's welcome to post reviews, so go for it if you feel the urge. At this point there are no rules about format or post length (or anything else for that matter). Just stick to generally accepted blog/forum etiquette and all should be well. Furthermore, the profile information has been updated to reflect some additions. In case anyone asks, this is still the Big Eyes Bigger Tentacle radio show journal, but with a few additions. I have some big goals for the eventual return that include a new website and more.
Keep in touch!( To kick start the reviews:Collapse )

Bring out your requests!
Okay, so the last post in here way too long ago. So... [MontyPython]Bring out yer Requests *clang* Bring out yer Requests *clang*[/MontyPython]
Here's my request... Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Time Only Knows
|Friday, September 16th, 2005|
Well, that sucked!
The show was ready, prepared, I was psyched..
The servers were down...Gah! The show last night didn't make it because the servers decided to say, "tough" and bugger off.
So what do you ladies and gentlemen want as a little extra to make up for it?

And I've been running and running...
Good afternoon! It's not too late to request music for the 05-08-25's show.
And I have announcements! Not only have I been running around on campus like a mad woman, I've become a RadioUTD DJ. This means that Big Eyes Bigger Tentacles will be broadcast for 5 hours a week (as opposed to just 3). This does not mean that the Thursday's show will be cancelled, changed, altered, or start to smell funny.
You'll be able to hear me on Mondays, Noon-2PM Central at radio.utdallas.edu and on Thursdays 9-Midnight Central at www.redhawkradio.net/listen.html. You'll still be able to reach me and request songs on AIM at Keliniacat, but the Monday show will also have IamRadioUTD as the other AIM. I'll post more as I learn more.

I'm not sure lapis will read this in time, but considering that there is not a request thread yet...
I wanna hear "7 drunken nights in space" preferably after 10:00 PM
By the way... The website, it does evolve. Perhaps if we get enough content it will launch soon *nudge nudge*

Tonight's Requests! 05-08-11
Insert Request here...
I feel jubilant. And there's a new addition to the household, both feline AND
*aside* We're versatile here...
|Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005|
Come on... you know what I want. *wink wink, nudge nudge*
Also, an announcement: Salin's working on the beta version of the website. I don't know (yet) when it goes live, but I figure he'll let us know...eventually! *grin*
Really, man, thanks!
|Thursday, July 28th, 2005|
And we're on...
Tonight, 9-midnight Central, back on track from last week's hiatus.
|Thursday, July 21st, 2005|
Tonight's Big Eyes Bigger Tentacles for July 21 is unforunately cancelled. I have been assigned, at the last minute, a massive set of projects to complete before Monday... This on top of a rescheduled physics exam and three physics assignments all due by noon tomorrow, and the massive set of projects already due on Monday.
To which I say:
On a brighter note, since the show IS prepared already for this week, I will be ready to go next Thursday, July 28, despite having three exams that day! I'll be on even if I have to pull myself up by my toenails, for your regularly scheduled badly pronounced Japanese.
Looking forward to it,
Lapis Current Mood: hammer between the eyes-squish

Requests! July 21, 2005
You know what I want... *grin* I already have almost all the show prepared, because I had a ton of things left over from last week. But I still want to know what you want to hear tomorrow.
Also, I am also taking random questions for the listener profiles. I've added my version of it, but we need more serious, random, weird, stupid, odd, or off the wall questions. Thus far I have:
Name/Alias: Lapis Kelinia
Birthday: February 23, 1981
When you first turned in: Sometime in MidMay, 2004. I have to look up the date, really.
Favorite They Might Be Giants tune: The World's Address
Favorite anime: Revolutionary Girl utena
What just isn't cool: People who beat around the bush and avoid giving a straight answer
MUTEX Marshmallows or Calenders...and why: I like deadlines, I don't like soft, puffy sugar products. Marshmallows cease to exist!*
Pretend it's 1980. You're an engineer. Would you go get the 1 Fadar capacitor from the storage bin?: Hehe!
Favorite genre of music: Whatever I can lay my dirty hands on. Whatever I can sing.
Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?: DrWoody
How many hours do you spend reading Bash.org?: The limit as x approaches infinity for x to the power of x, divided by 1 over x...in seconds
Don't answer them here, just think of more questions to ask. The ones that make the final cut will go on the website.
*I'll explain this one, if you ask. Current Mood: chosen at random

Requests for July 14th
As Lapis has not put this up yet, I'd thought I'd get things rolling with what we want to put in for requests.I do not ensure that Lapis will read this before her show and as such make no promises of getting your reuqests in
EDIT NOTE: Dang italics!
|Thursday, July 7th, 2005|
Requests! If you have anything you want to hear tonight, let me know.
I'm going to do something a little different with the show tonight. Currently the line up is 2 hours of anime music and one hour of random filk, partially as a request by Raven and partially as a continuation of the filking we did last week. There may, also, be an inexplicable poetry reading, cause of which I'll explain tonight. But needless to say, did you know that Shel Silverstein did not write solely for children?
I'll see you tonight!

July 7th requests?
Not sure if Lapis will do this, so I'll kick off the requests for this thursday.
Mental Note: Ensure that Lapis has not fallen of the face of the earth.
I make no gaurntees that she'll read this.
|Thursday, June 30th, 2005|
Yar! I be taking requests... *chews on random people*
And currently the show topics are undecided. At the moment, my mind is mush. You could eat my brains like a pudding.

Requests! June 30, 2005
As requested, I'm going to try to ake a sticky post predated for the above show dates. Unfortunately, LJ won't let me backdate community entries, so I've written them something about it. If that doesn't work, I have a few other ideas to get around the problem. Sound good? I'll also check to see if it stays sticky on friend's journals, because if it does, you guys'll kill me. This will give me more time to snag your requsts and have them ready for you. ( FOR YOUUUUUU!Collapse ) Current Mood: coughing still
|Friday, June 24th, 2005|
I finally got off my ass to do this one thing...
Big Eyes Bigger Tentacles has an LJ community now, called SongsofTentacle
. It's fairly open, and I'm going to use it to post developments on the show, gather requests, and whatever randomness people want to get up to. So far it's in its rudimentary stages without color or formatting, so I'm inviting those who are interested to join and give us some suggestions as to what we can add to it, style choices, et cetera.
Over the next few months, however, there will be quite a few announcements coming up: the new website will be revealed, the contest rules will be posted, and the open auditions will be held to expand the shows on the station.
In the meantime, I'd love any suggestions that come this way. And if anyone's interested in making some art for the website, go for it! If you think the colors for the site should be purple and asphalt, say so! You know I'm not too strict or picky about that sort of thing.

Hey, no fair! *pokes Isa, and laughs*
Okay, here's Big Eyes Bigger Tentacles! I'm planning on doing some refurbishing as the LJ looks a little bland, a little boring. Also, tell me what you want to see on this LJ, what I should add to it. Suggestions not just welcome, but begged. *pokes them all with the purple Cthuluh* I want input from all of you, or I'll introduce you to my...mascot....
