tempestuously: ([gravi] nobel prize for evil?)
I did it! I finally caught up on my LJ readings. I need to stop being a plurk-obsessed slacker and actually like check this thing once in a while. I had some rants (mostly dealing with Katsucon and its ability to make me feel completely detached from the world yay -- aside from [livejournal.com profile] realms_of_life who is love), LJ plastering my screen with game ads (no I don't care), jeers for the Maryland General Assembly for being so indecisive on the gay marriage bill and refusal to watch then new ponies (I woooon't.)

I also had kudos for [livejournal.com profile] sari_15, whose essay on the latest VK Chapter makes me feel like a lazy slug who really needs to get around to reading that chapter and analyzing it properly. I need to shake my VK annoyance in general because the developments in this chapter are actually quite interesting and could add something different to the Zero situation. That reminds me, I really should hang up my pretty Zero poster already.

It has been a very mixed week for the Nayami, with mood swings a plenty. I need to catch up on Star Driver, Young Justice, Drag Race and the manga I picked up from Katsucon. I also need to go check out King's Speech and do some other D.C.-related things. I have been having much fun with The Lost Hero, which pretty much spares itself of any of the character issues that plagued the first series. I still want my Thalia though.

I had poli-rants but they can be summed up as: MAKE UP YOUR MINDS PEOPLE.

Man, I hope LoL doesn't end up killing Sion, I will be so sad. This is the first anime I have really gotten into (minus fandom) in a long time. I'm kind of disappointed the fandom for Star Driver is so boring. I might write longer reviews on the recent episodes of both of these after I watch the new Star Driver tomorrow.

I also really enjoyed the premiere of Young Justice. The characters are probably far more quippy and bratty than they should be, but I really am loving Aqualad. Jesse McCartney as Robin is also amazing. And of course I have a soft spot for Kid Flash and Superboy. Though I'm thinking Aqualad/Superboy may end up my OTP.
tempestuously: ([terra]look and see her how she sparkles)
Ohhh yes, I am very pleased with the direction Star Driver is going, Legend of the Legendary Heroes too.

On the way to the voting precinct tonight, my car died twice. Once in the middle of the road. Should I take this as a sign? That said, I managed it.

Also I swear my slogan for life should be "Can't sleep, people are discussing Geass on the Internets." In other news, I still need to watch the new Star Driver and LoL. But I'm off schedule for NaNoWriMo so that just has to wait. :(

Expect a recap of "Name of the Wind" tomorrow as I prepare to finish the book. I'm thinking about picking up the new Riordan next.
tempestuously: ([geass] like raw meat to the lions)
So I intended to get home an hour ago. Unfortunately, a car just ahead of the car I was driving behind suddenly BURST INTO FLAMES. That was... awkward.

It fit into my strange weekend, which consisted of watching "Hereafter." As for whether I liked the movie, well I'm a Matt Damon fan so I will watch almost anything with him. I will say that it would have been an infinitely better movie if it had just been the kid stalking Matt Damon for most of the movie while he tried to find the reporter. I would like to rewrite this movie.

Gabi and I also finally carved our pumpkin. It was very small since all of the big pumpkins had been taken by the time we stopped by the store, and they didn't refill until the next day. But it was a fun adventure, and I didn't injure myself so yay. There was also Togainu no Chi, which is dreadfully dull without the yaoi, Legend of the Legendary Heroes, which really should have just followed the novels instead of spending too much time trying to be Slayeresque because it's very interesting now that it has a plot and of course Star Driver, which broke formula and actually gave some of its characters motivations. Also, there was silly yaoi fanservice so it gains an amusement point for that.

I think my eye is dying again. Of course.
