tempestuously: ([gravi] nobel prize for evil?)
[livejournal.com profile] danalovesbooks introduced me to Community and RuPaul's Drag Race. I really enjoyed both, but I'm more likely to watch the latter because of reruns. I'm too lazy to remember to watch real TV anymore. We also watched "Street Fight," which is an amazing political documentary and makes me want to rent "The War Room" stat. I do love a good political documentary. Speaking of political, who was the idiot publicist that let the Bieb thing talk politics to Rolling Stone? I hope that guy got fired. That cover didn't help much either.

I actually watched the Grammy's this year, mostly because my father did. It was amusing to learn the only Lady Gaga song he knows is "Paparazzi." I also realized my oblivious love for Ke$ha from listening to her bouncy songs on my radio. I love bouncy dance music. And I admit that Rhianna and Eminem's performance of "Watch Me Burn" was gorgeous. It's sad that the only rapper I like, outside maybe of early Coolio, is the very person I can't stand. But he captures such sincere emotion and rawness in his lyrics and his presentation that I have to admire the true artistry in what he does. His songs are good, even if I think he is a terrible person.

I reserved Okamiden. I have no idea when I'm going to play it, but I did anyway. Just like I have no idea how I'm going to relaunch the Geass conversations, but I really want to because I miss them terribly, especially when I'm doing EPIC things with Lelouch. I also have really been enjoying the chance to talk DenYuuDen with more than just one person. LOL.

I have so failed completely at managing my time this week, and work destroyed me. Hopefully, things will smooth over during Katsucon Friday. I'm pretty excited about it.

I am full of good feelings and bad feelings. Among the bad feelings is me feeling like an absolute brain-dead moron for not realizing we had a storm yesterday. A storm strong enough to kill people and wipe out a large chunk of power. I think I reached the Seventh Level of Hell today when I had to drive through 10 non-functioning traffic lights on one of the busiest streets in the city just to learn my work had no power and I had to turn around and drive back through those 10 non-functioning lights to go to my other location. Yeah, not a great start for my day.

I'm also annoyed that The Avengers cast only includes that bimbo ScarJo as Black Widow and no other females. I have no other complaints with the cast, but that annoys me because I hated that character in Ironman 2. To add to my financial woes before Otakon, I think the undercarriage on my truck is falling off and I have no time to fix it before the con. I have no idea what I will do.

My major pet peeve of the day, though, is the stupid people who are blaming The Washington Post's expose on over-spending on the private industry side of National Security for The New York Times deciding to run with all of the classified war reports that talk smack about Pakistan and basically make us look like we've got real problems in the war, not that that wasn't already known. I don't understand why people can't tell the difference between archiving public information into a single database and leaking classified WAR PERTINENT information. I'm all for power of the press, but Wikileaks just makes me feel slimy.

Good news is I have been enjoying "The Way of Shadows" -- yes Graham, I like the boy-whore shut up -- which also was featured in the background of Lord Kat's (Until We Win) recent reviews. That amused me. I still have real problems relating to either Kylar or Durzo, but I am still loving Logan (yes, Graham, I am slashing them shut up) and am partially intrigued by the whole mystery of Kylar's power. Though, this book does have some creepy fascination with trying to be as disturbing as possible. Did we really need a guy who shoots peasants and feeds them to other people? I think my other favorite character is the queen of the brothels. She's awesome. I can tell I'm going to despise the insipid love story.

Legend of the Legendary Heroes of Legend made me sad by giving me hot long-haired Ryner since I know from the OP that he will cut his hair. I did enjoy that fight between him and the sword-fighter girl though. I think Ryner is growing on me. Sion is still the fave though.

Otakon has also reminded me that I miss fangirling something like crazy. The con just has less meaning for me if I don't have a series to spend ridiculous amounts of money on and run around from panel to panel or signing to signing (Wolf's Rain, Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, Geass). I'm too old for it, but boy do I love it. Call my old anime obsessions whatever you'd like but they sure made me happy. I need something of equal awesome.
