I go from liking him to criticizing the hell out of him and back to defending him because holy hell some criticism is just ridiculous.

This is my fandom experience with Joss/Spike.

I remember when I could ramble on for paragraphs about liking something. Yet nowadays my thoughts of TV rarely go more than 'I liked it'. Which is not to say I don't have thoughts; I'd like to talk about it, yet I have no energy.

There is really no point to this post.

They installed wifi at work which I have been using for nefarious purposes. I downloaded a couple movies, which inspired me to dig out my DVD box and rewatch some older ones.

Interstellar, Alien, Jurassic Park and Hells Bells.Collapse )

Sometimes I so wish I could subscribe to the author being dead mindset. Or at the very least stop myself from reading interviews.

Yeah, yeah, comics crap...Collapse )

So Long, February...

Get out and don't come back. After another rather bitter night (-13F), things are supposed to turn around and start warming up to mid-30s during the day and only down to the teens at night. Not too bad. Of course with this warm-up comes another weekend snowstorm, but to me the sense of claustrophobia is dissipating. I still prefer a few weeks of cold a year to the sweltering heat of summer further South--easier to warm up than cool down--but the pent-up, cabin fever thing can get very, very serious. Even after 3-4 weeks you can see how people can snap. Have to say though, being outside in the country at night in those temps? Stunning. Not in a OMG I'M FREEZING TO DEATH way (unless the wind is blowing), but everything is sharp, clear...fragile. It's like you're instantly put into a meditation. You sense and appreciate everything around you. Awesome.

In other news, I think I've gotten addicted to Tumblr. I say addiction because I keep going back to it even though all it does is annoy me. It's not a healthy relationship. As nice as the gifsets and photos can be, they're not worth post after post of WILLOW WAS BI GODDAMNIT, TARA!!!!, I KNOW THIS IS UNPOPULAR BUT I HATE KENNEDY!!11. Or how the clothing on a show set in high school in the 90's, filmed in the 90's and broadcast in the 90's looks like...the 90's. If the clothes on your high school show don't look dated 20 years later, you didn't do it right to begin with. It's easier if you stay away from the common tags, I guess, but it seems everyone to follow who posts to my interests tries to be really political and it's not really what I'm here for. Meh. I suppose I'll fizzle out completely on it sooner or later.

Weird dreams lately. Not up there with the David Boreanaz offering me beans in a half-sunked house dream, but the nightmare-ish type. But not really? I don't know, I tend to dream in the third-person for whatever reason (too much TV as a kid maybe), so horrible things happen, but it's like I'm watching a film. Thing is, I can never remember them clearly when I wake, your typical dream remnants, so I can't capitalize on them at all.

Also, Dark Horse is doing a sequel to Fight Club. How is it they seem to get their hands on all my stuff? They've got CP to write, but we've seen how getting the original writer can work out. I'll probably pirate the first issue because it's obvious I subconsciously hate myself. Speaking of, I reread the last few issues of BTVS and since the 'starting point', I have to say while there are flaws that are glaringly obvious, it's decent enough fanfic. Like, I wouldn't nominate it for a bad!fic award like pretty much everything else. I only wish I actually trusted the authors, 'cause on reread, it definitely seems like there's something going on there. If I felt confident, I'd speculate that the OOC stuff is related to the book. Like, I wonder if Dawn wrote something in it. There's too much contrast between 11-12. But, it's probable it's just bad writing and there is no explanation.

Hey, look, I posted on LJ! 556 words, even!

Ugh. Is it me or is LJ really flaking out lately? It'll let me view posts, albeit very, very, very slowly. Sometimes I have to turn off Java/CSS for that. I've been trying to reply to people for near a day now and the reply page won't load.

Grr.

So this is just embarrassing...

Also I didn't know S3 wasn't cropped to 4x3 on the R2 DVDs. I thought it was just 4-7. I suppose I'm gonna have to pony-up and pay for shipping.

It's Still the 31st Somewhere (I Think)

Funny and sad that I give up comic talk as a NY Resolution and it looks like the Buffy-Boards people finally pick up a clue about Whedon, the comics and Buffy/Angel in general.

Whelp. I guess it was the Corbin cover that caused the ever-so-slight uptick in sales for #8. Back to the regularly scheduled drop for #9. -662 for BTVS and -328 for AF.

Cool.

Might they finally do Spikelus?

So for some reason I was thinking about the comics last night at work, namely the last couple issues and the released covers for the next few. They seem to be pushing the Spuffy hard. A little too hard if you ask me. When was the last time they released a TPB cover before the first issue of said trade installment was out, much less 2 months before? AFAIK, never. They release the shippy name of the first two issues in said arc, but Gage conveniently forgets what the arc's name is for the last 3 issues.

Then you add in all the out-of-nowhere talk about souls, Buffy with naivete x10 and the shippiness of the last 2 issues. Also add in yet another close-call with soul-loss. Granted they seem to do that every other arc at DH, but maybe they'll actually push it this time. The thing that got me considering it is they're 1/3 of the way through the run and there is no big bad in sight. I thought maybe Amy, but I don't think so now. She's not quite big enough. If she's a major baddie, I think Will goes to A&F for it. She wouldn't be much of a BB for Buffy anyway. Granted, neither was Simone, but even she was introduced very early.

Considering they've got Buffy going somewhat moon-eyed over Spike in no time flat after nothing in 8/9, they've got to be setting something up. I thought it would be a rehash of the whole no-thanks thing from S8, but now I wonder if they won't pull the other card from S8 and redo the S2 arc. It would certainly get fandom in a tizzy.
