Flounce, exile, etc! [08 Dec 2007|10:39am]
[ mood | unimpressed ]

I have exiled myself to InsaneJournal.

I'll still be reading, but I'm no longer posting here until my confidence in the site is restored.

Banned Books OMG! [30 Nov 2007|07:37pm]
I dislike this new adult filter for the very sole and selfish beliefs that A) I'm not an Internet nanny and don't like being nannied, and B) I refuse to disclose a date of birth, and am too lazy to bother inventing one.

And on a similar note, a list of "banned books" from here.

Movie Adaptations of WTF [25 Nov 2007|09:14am]
[ mood | wow ]

Wow: A friend of mine whose interests can be summarised as "Jack Bauer, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Death Note, Jack Bauer" told me that a North American Dragon Ball Z movie is in the works.

Even more wow: A live action film.

Even even more wow: Rumors say that James Marsters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame (he played Spike) is a main cast member. IMDB claims that he's going to be playing Piccolo. He certainly has the glare down pat, but he needs more buff. And green.

Craziest part: My local newspaper claims that it's going to be filmed here.

A live action DBZ film. I never thought someone would make one. How are they going to make the rippling muscles and arteries? How long will the movie be if all the fights take 2 hours to complete 10 minutes worth of fighting?!

Wings of the Goddess! [20 Nov 2007|07:27am]
It's here! The FFXI time-travelling expansion is here! I'm still trying to download the mandatory prepatory update!

I'm also wondering if it'll actually, you know, appear over here. Packaging delays okgo!

Boo Amazon! [17 Nov 2007|01:20pm]
I thought it would be a good idea to shop on Amazon for some thoughtful but hard to find in normal store Christmas gifts, like out of print books and CDs, etc.

I find the items I want, yay! And while they're not cheap, I can afford them as gifts! Yay!


All the sellers are in the US, and appear to have turned off shipping to Canada because of the current exchange rate.




On another obscure note, I have concluded that you really can find anything on Youtube.


Case and point: If you were A) a kid living in Canada in the 1990s and B) watched YTV after school, this may be familiar...

Okay, I'm done. Homework time now. >.>

Character fic meme (copied from trialia). [16 Nov 2007|01:14pm]
Hey, it looks like fun!

Below the cut, I'm going to list a total of 20 characters (10 male, 10 female). Your job, if you choose to accept it, is to pick two of the characters (can be from same fandom or not) and give me a line of dialogue/song/quote. I will attempt to write something for those two characters interacting.

So I'm going to try for many different fandoms in hopes that there'll be something for everyone. ^^

NanoWriMo - Day 1 [02 Nov 2007|08:13am]
[ mood | ambitious ]

I'm doing NaNoWriMo by hand, so I'll only be posting a page count. By my estimates of my handwriting, one page is approximately 300 words.

My goal is therefore to write at least five to six pages (~1500-1800 words) a day.

Day 1: 2.5 pages. ~750 words.

.....I will do better!

One problem which I hope will solve itself later is that I don't have a title. Nor can I adequately summarise what my novel is about. OH WELL. XD

[ mood | miserable ]

Ugh. I'm really sick at the moment - caught some nasty chest cold or flu and then had the good sense to hurt my back, so I've been somewhat bedridden and disoriented the past two days, and yea, feeling rather miserable. I have lots of work to do despite illness, and am grumpy from two days of idleness.

On the other hand, let me give out something good. I love Nightwish's new single!

I find the angel in the video somewhat lame, but I love the song. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this CD. And I missed them in concert, pooh. They were nearby last week. ;_;

In other news, Stephen Colbert is running for president. I would so vote for him if I were American.

Memes and FFXI grumbling. [04 Oct 2007|09:14pm]

I'm currently camping an NM in Tahrongi Canyon. >.> Feed it water, wait for it to pop.


[30 Sep 2007|09:52am]
Rather than doing homework, I am, as always procrastinating with FFXI stuff and watching television. BST14 okgo! Now I must drop 46k in gil to upgrade my gear to a reasonable level. Time to craft, I suppose. I estimate that I need something like 601k to get BST to 20 if I want to be reasonably pimped out, with an Aqua ring on top for my WHM. >.>

Speaking of television, is anyone else seeing the growing supernatural show trend? There's at least 3 new shows that started this summer or are starting soon that involve vampires or immortals, and that's just adding on to the existing line up of Ghost Whisperer and co.

And for reference about the vampire shows: They're all blatantly shippy. Blood Ties? Not so much about the PI and vampire fighting supernatural crime. More about vampire dude vs. PI's on/off ex while PI chick must choose between them (oh noez)! Moonlight? Not so much about the PI vampire fighting supernatural crime as him dealing with his emo Evanescence issues (I wish I was making this up)!

And yes, those two shows are as painfully similar as they sound. If I was forced to watch one I'd probably go with Blood Ties since A) It's Canadian and B) the vampire doesn't do boring monologues, but both are cheesy.

TV Premieres [26 Sep 2007|07:20am]
[ mood | calm ]

I got my first fix of NCIS in months! The premiere (I think it was the premiere, they had a new cut of the intro sequence) was acceptable. I wouldn't go so far as to call it epic or anything, but it does make me want to continue following the season on top of catching whatever episodes Ms. Higginson ends up in.

I'm actually enjoying into Shepard's thread now with her father and Gibbs trying to prevent her from going completely off the wall. It's a nice change since usually Shepard's trying to keep Gibbs from going against protocol (and usually failing).


Hypocrisy at its worst ; ; [19 Sep 2007|06:01pm]
Serious budget problems at Environment Canada are threatening wildlife programs and services within the federal department, freezing allotted money for some and reducing funds to nothing for others...

Yay for fic updates! [16 Sep 2007|09:25am]
[ mood | busy ]

Okay, I know I said Teyla would be getting a new job in the next part of Crossroads, but my overly long but uneventful writing style (I've discovered that I like writing sequels and not actual scenes) delayed that to the next update. But the next two chapters are up, so read!


Atlantean Plot Bunny [13 Sep 2007|08:17pm]
We all know I'll never write something in a timely fashion, so I'll just share the plot bunny.

Whoa, Backspace Please! [01 Aug 2007|09:08am]
[ mood | blah ]

I joined the Zeroes 2 Heroes site for the ReBoot redevelopment only after reading its TOS. I was actually very surprised with the TOS since it said 'everything you say and do on this site belongs to you and never us'.

But now, one week into the ReBoot deal, there's a TOS specifically for the event that basically says 'All your base are belong to us.'

I understand the need to do this completely: it's very possible that if a pitch is selected for development that someone who contributed ideas or whatnot is going to demand some compensation in either accreditation or money form. I'm not actually that angry over the details of the agreement. I expected them.

But posting this one week after the event has started and people have already posted artwork and ideas is just plain low. I'm sorry, but you're not allowed to backpedal. You wanted all rights? Should've declared that in the first place.

That site really and truly does suck, and remains my biggest complaint about this whole thing. It really is like FanLib and should've thought things out a bit more before jumping in. If I post anything now substantial now beyond opinions, it's going on a fan-controlled venue.
