I know I normally only dig this thing out so I can bitch and moan about Doctor Who episodes that I hate, and that this probably looks like I'm about to launch into a massive spiel about how awful it was and blah blah blah. Actually the episode wasn't terrible. It wasn't fantastic either but it was okay.( Read more...Collapse )

Hey look I guess it is review season again. I don't think I'm going to review everything in the world this time, but Dexter is a special exception because seriously <3 Dexter. ( Reviewtimes are here again!Collapse )

You know what I wonder, I wonder why a Lazy Susan is called a Lazy Susan. If you are not familiar with the gently spinning surface upon which foodstuffs can be placed and spun around very slowly then this entry won't make a whole heap of sense for you, except hey I guess I just neatly summarised the concept of a Lazy Susan for you so you can sit back relax and enjoy the rest of this well thought through analysis of the name Lazy Susan.
For the moment lets just ignore that the inanimate object is called Susan, that is perhaps an issue for another time, for today I think we can focus on the notion that it is lazy. This is unfair and tantamount to bullying. In terms of surfaces on which you can place food it is quite energetic. Seriously. Think about it, in this incredibly narrow category the only competition it has is from tables. While the gentle turn of a Lazy Susan could not profess to be very lively when compared to an Ariel Atom (by the way I watch Top Gear now so expect random references to cars now and again) when compared to an inanimate object it cannot help but come off as somewhat vigorous. And anyway who would want to put their food on a Brisk Susan? One that spins around so fast that anything placed upon it is flung off into the face of the person who wishes to eat it, probably precipitating some king of Brisk Susan aided food fight.

I am almost at the end of PopCo and I feel that my experience with this book could neatly be summed up in one sentence, as could the events that have occured so far in the book. By the way that sentence that you just read, that was the sentence I was talking about. Put in a less confusing manner: nothing seems to have really happened so far in this book. A coded message here, the main character catches a cold and as a child has to try and fit in in high school but very little of any note. I'm not sure whether there is just not much happening or whether I'm missing the point? Although come to think of it, it's the former.
I will definately make the effort to finish it off though, because I am like fifty pages from the 'thrilling conclusion' whatever that turns out to be and I guess I am stubborn like that. Then I can read the Jasper Fforde books that turned up today. Amazon really can be ridiculously fast when it wants to be can't it?

You know I'm just waiting until a show calls one of it's episodes Review and then I'll be like:
A Show 4x13 - Review - Review.
Or even until a show called Review starts up and then I'll be all like:
Review 6x12 - Review - Review.
Or when we start using the word review instead of numbers and then well you can pretty much tell which dead end alley I am headed down with this incredibly pointless line of thought. In other news I have come here to review the latest episode of Castle. ( Review! The Musical!Collapse )

Guess what I've decided to do even if it kills me? Well actually from your perspective guessing really isn't necessary because the answer is update my damn dreamwidth/livejournal thing. And if you can see this then I guess I've already done it, even if it did kill me, and so there's little point in guessing what might happen when that thing has already happened. Also if it turns out that this is simply too much for me to handle then you'll never see it and never be invited to speculate on what I am going to have already done. Okay now that incredibly confusing treatise on the nature of guessing and the past is complete I suppose I will just have to come up with some clever things to say about the world and then I can sod off to bed.
So things that have happened in the world. If I was more politically minded I would have heaps of material to blather on about with regards to the situation wherein all the countries in Africa seem to be rebelling all at once. As I am a more self-involved individual I will instead regale you with stories about my own personal rebellion against the man. Specifically my own miniature thought rebellions against the BBC news. I have this thing wherein while watching the news and being told that people are terrorists or such a person is guilty of a crime of some description I instinctively think that the news is trying to bias brainwash us into believing these things and call in to question their basis in fact. I am such a rebel yes anyway. I don't know why I do this but it seems the more I am told a thing the more I come to suspect the opposite is true. I guess I suppose the news will probably take advantage of this fact now that I have put it out there and start telling us what has really happened so that those of us who are paranoid, I mean have enquiring minds, will believe the opposite; i.e. what they wanted us to think all along. By that point in time it will no longer be safe to believe anything is true any more and I will take refuge inside a cardboard box while cardboard angels rain chocolate apocalypse down upon us.
I guess that despite my whole 'i am so self involved' thing that was actually pretty political, right up until the whole chocolate apocalypse thing. I don't even know how that would work. Perhaps like how easter is celebrated with chocolate eggs (for some reason i don't understand but equally don't complain about) the chocolate apocalypse will probably be celebrated with little chocolate nukes. Or something. I don't know. I am tired and I think I might be coming down with a cold.

While I am well aware I may be speaking too soon I believe that after having managed to drag four survivors across a zombie infested courtyard, one of whom cannot walk, while convicts in a jeep shoot at me, and having all the survivors come out of the ordeal relatively unscathed I feel I may have already completed the hardest part of the Saint achievement in Dead Rising (the original). Fucking convicts.

The fact that I am not very good at sticking to one thing for very long is hardly a piece of information which was elucidated solely from the artvent fiasco. It is more a thing that I have known for a very long time and become frequently frustrated with myself about. Actually I am rather pleased that Artvent lasted as long as it did seeing as it was a spur of the moment idea, and one that required a lot of work for quite a minimal payoff (i.e. no payoff at all).
So now it's the year 2011 (twenty-eleven or two thousand and eleven: who cares?) and I just thought I best stick my head in and say a couple of things about stuff and then sod off and it'll probably be july before I do another entry in here. Actually I know I say who cares on the subject of the pronounciation of the dates but imagine if in 1999 and years previous we'd been saying one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine. That would certainly make 'Party Like It's 1999' less catchy.

So the other day I recieved my calendar for the new year and I had a quick leaf through as I am wont to do. I ordered a Buffy one because I was presented with several potentially good calendars and decided to go with one I knew would be really good, rather than risk a potential fiasco like the Watchmen calendar from this year. Anyway it's all good. There's all the usual characters in there: Buffy, Willow, Xander, Giles, Spike, Dawn, Anya Tara (looking practically unrecognisable). Oddly Cordelia, Angel and Oz all seem to be lacking pages in the calendar which I find odd. Maybe you don't Maybe you think 'well Cordelia and Angel are surely more suited to an Angel calendar seeing as they came to full fruition in the spinoff show of the same name, and Oz wasn't really in it for long enough to justify a full page in the calendar' and indeed you might be right if not for November 2011. Representing November 2011 is Riley! Remember Riley? That guy who Buffy went out with for a while who worked for 'The Initiative' and who nobody liked. Yeah that guy has his own calendar page. If this was twitter this is where I would say #calendarfail and then end the message because fuck this would be well too long for twitter, even with heavy editing I couldn't really get this down to 140 characters.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to draw a Tangle alongside a normal person in order to demonstrate that what may appear to be just a very unusual art style is actually a fundamental difference between tangles and humans. Tangle Alpha-Eta, The Unspeakable, is one of my favourite characters. She is just so wrong.

( This is the cut textCollapse )
Clone 666 found himself drawn inexorably to the dark arts while in life. He dyed his hair an unusual colour and consorted with the spirits of the dead. When he met his unfortunate end he came up with an elaborate and quite frankly rubbish scheme to bring himself back to life. He breathed life into a formation of crystallised souls that would later be known as ‘Fool’s Paradiso’. The purpose of this creation was to lead unwary souls into his fake heaven trap whereupon he would feast upon their souls and get his life back. The key flaws in this plan was that Fool’s Paradiso was so intimidating that nobody would follow him, 666’s fake heaven was really unconvincing and even had he succeeded consuming the soul of another does not bring you back to life.

This artvent for some reason has taken me all day to draw and I have no idea why. Man I suck at time management. Anyway without further ado here is the first of the three artvent pictures (actually perhaps this is the reason it has taken me so long, I don't know). ( yoCollapse )
In case you are wondering what is going on with the guard's head it's a helmet which has on it's front an image of Sister's face. She rules over the trapped population of her 'Paradise' through a mixture of physical force, constant brainwashing and a creepy kind of love and caring, claiming to be protecting her prisoners from the horrors of the outside world. All the guards wear Sister helmets... as do all the whores.

Todays picture is a snapshot from the same time period as the first. Some kind of apocalyptic scenario has turned the Principality of Jormungandr into a vast rolling desert. Jormungandr has found herself a new kingdom to rule; the liberated population of a floating city previously run by a perverted cult leader called Sister.( picture in hereCollapse )
This one was tricky to draw in terms of how I was going to present the floating city in a way that was interesting to look at. Floating free it's just a big circle with a J on it and some exhaust pipes and stuff. I decided that while Sister would have been happy to float free; and thus keep the inhabitants captive to her whims, Jormungandr would have redocked it with it's original docking platform.

This picture is not an actual scene but more a sort of amalgamam of the entirity of The Great Unknowable Unknown; yet another spin-off of The Prinicpalities that I really should finish off at some point. The annoyed looking guy is Sue Sugarsnatch, who hates his name and his life. The green floaty Cortana lookalike is Ixcalibur, where I originally pinched the name from.( click here for the picture which is the entire point of the entryCollapse )

Well I certainly hope that my new feature is going to last a little bit longer than my reviewingess did. Every day I'm drawing a picture/composing a peice of music/writing a short peice of text (because hey writing is an art I'm pretty sure) for the purpose of... actually I'm not sure why I'm doing this. It's a december thing. They will all probably be set in The Principalities and the first one presents a bleak future for the Principality of Jormungandr.( the art itself is behind the cut and you can see it by clicking here, so do so, now!Collapse )

So welcome to the Reviewstravaganza! I know the other day I was all like 'hey if it doesn't get reviewed then it doesn't get reviewed and with my busy life thems the breaks' well that kind of laissez faire attitude may be fine and dandy for some people but this is me with all my crazy compulsions that we are talking about. If one program is going to be getting reviewed then I am going to have to review them all. Blame my OCD. So today, either in a vast review post which is the one you are currently reading or a staccato series of review posts you will be reading reviews on Eureka 4x09 - I'll Be Seeing You, Warehouse 13 2x11 & 2x12 - Buried and Reset, House 6x01 - Now What?, Chuck 4x01 - Chuck Versus The Anniversary, Gossip Girl 3x01 & 3x02 - Belles De Jour and Double Identities and Castle 3x01 - A Deadly Affair.( First Up: EurekaCollapse )
Coming up next: Warehouse 13.

Current Mood:: stressed
On the one hand I am currently playing Dragon Age: Origins, on another hand I am currently replaying Mass Effect in an effort to get all of the achievements (in fact at the moment I am stood in front of a Citadel Rapid Transport Terminal firing Neural Shocks as and when they become available), I am also reading The Dark Tower books (midway through The Wizard and The Glass), run a series of adventures on the MSPA Forums (though admittedly they haven't updated for a while), participate in a bunch of Grand Battles, rewrite The Principalities, write actual books, watch far too many TV programs (this includes catching up with programs with which I am not currently up to date) and watch all the films that have built up on my DVD/HDD recorder. This is to name a few.
This is the reason I cannot ever do anything, because I am too busy trying to do everything.
Also on a sidenote I am probably not going to attempt to review every TV program that I watch because that road leads to madness. I might still attempt to review the odd one should the mood take me and if it happens to be a particuarly good one. But needs must as the devil drives and I should probably go and do one of those things I mentioned before.

So I've just watched this episode of Dirty Sexy Money, specifically that one episode that was took off air for some reason and really confused me all week long and which I consequently never saw. And for some reason I am about to do a review on it. Nevermind that I have pending reviews I could be doing on Eureka, Gossip Girl and Warehouse 13. Today is all about reviewing stuff that I should have watched two years ago.( better late than never right?Collapse )
Also I really did try to find an applicable 'strangely appropriate song' for this review and this was the closest I could get. Get it? ChocoLATE? Because it's two years late? ...Yeah ...I know.

So hey look I am doing more reviews and stuff. Reviewing stuff is fun. Warehouse 13 is an awesome, and relatively new program that I have started watching. While originally I only did it in preparation for it's crossover episode with Eureka I can definately say that it is a worthwhile show of it's own merit and definately worth watching.( 'if you ask me they could stand to spice things up a little bit. Add a little blueberry shortcake, and maybe have a swimsuit issue.'Collapse )
