So, last weekend I flew into Washington with my Dad to join him in a National Jamboree meeting (since I'll be working there this summer) and do a couple days of touristy shit. And let me tell you, it was ~awesome~. I loved everything, and would rather be there now, I think..but don't we all say that about places that aren't home?

It seems cool and all until you actually move there, and then you figure out you're living a shithole four and a half miles from the sun and a mile away from a beach full of gross, sweaty fat girls in thongs and an ocean full of things that want to kill you. Sup, Orange County.

Sorry, I just had to put a little shout out to my homie OC in there. On that note: it seems to be every Southlakeian teen's wet dream to move to Orange County. Fucking newsflash, you don't know how nice it is here. You are not used to living within 3 meters of various strangers in 6 different directions in a moldy one bedroom apartment that costs you a thousand a month. God damn it.

Okay. Okay. Now that I'm done foaming at the mouth, ima tell you about the best trip of all time. Far before I actually went, it was on my awesome tier because a) I got to miss some school, and b) It was just Dad and me. Like I said, it's already a good trip.

several small pictures. Mostly of trees, because there aren't any in Texas, i've only heard of their existence through short stories and fairytales, much like unicorns and forest nymphs.Collapse )

Stolen from rosevixen.

Pick 20 10 movies/anime/video games/comic books/literary works/television series/musicians and put their summaries from Better Than It Sounds (TV tropes) and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

1. A Hero, a slightly dim-witted guy, a Grumpy Bear, a Large Ham, and a Tagalong Kid go through an unbelievable amount of crap to find a giant. The Brave Little Toaster
2. Vampires terrorize a boardwalk like an MTV music video. Disaffected Teen saves mother from obsessive nocturnal video store owner. Billy Idol tries to seduce Jim Morrison.
3.Eight different high school students solve local murders by watching TV all night long.
4. A mentally retarded man is sent to war and becomes a ping-pong player, while his lifelong crush turns to a life of sex and drugs. Forrest Gump
5. A group of people are at the complete, utter mercy of a whimsical and cruel god who alternates between deleting their toilets and trapping them inside the very walls of their own homes. The Sims
6. Robin (of Batman and...), LL Cool J, and a short white woman famous for playing a Chinese man work out of a resort that's supposed to be a secret base in the middle of Los Angeles. They Fight Crime! NCIS: Los Angeles
7. An iconoclastic woman works in an industry she hates so she can preach about it. Her father is a murderer, her best friend at work is an alcoholic, and her nephew is friendly with a minion of the Big Bad.
8. A government employee has a really bad day. 24
9. An old man spends several lifetimes convincing hot young things to join him inside an ancient (time traveling) phone box. Dr. Who
10. Boy falls in love with a girl whose artificial body and overprotective sister ensure that they can never have sex.

I found the Japanese version of 24 a couple days ago, and it both amused and horrified me to such a point that I had to make a multilingual (also, I was bored shitless last weekend weekend, but thats beside the point). This is not like my Avatar multilingual, this actually switches between languages every few seconds so its kinda fun to watch. Hopefully.



Passcode is "24".

Someone also put it up on their Renee Walker fansite here. The best thing about this is that he is actually hosting the video so if... okay, when Vimeo takes it down for TOS violation, it will be somewhere else. Awesome.

Also, I sort of transitioned from Facebook to Twitter recently. Creep at will.

Work today was really interesting. Katie, my new boss (as of like, 2 months ago) has COMPLETELY changed the place and its so awesome now. There's also another girl working there (she told me her name and I forgot it, story of my life) for experience to complete her Biology degree who is amazing and helped out a lot as well. It's so neat. We actually have an explanation for why we keep African animals in a supposedly Texas natives exhibit now!

And check out the new classroom:



Everything is great except the crickets/mealworms. If you have ever/currently own multiple cricket eaters, you would know that this set up sucks.

I keep trying to tell them that its futile to try and actually keep a cricket bin clean for any extended period of time, but they just keep trying to keep crickets in a fancy cage with dirt and wood and all that jazz, not to mention its near impossible to catch the damn things with all this extra shit in the cage. It's disgusting enough as it is, thanks.

Just dump some newspaper in a huge recycling bin and do clean sweeps every couple days, I say. We have it set up at my summer job like that- I work with about 70 animals at the middle school animal science labs during the summer. Its a lot more work than the Nature Center, not to mention that the volunteers are completely clueless and ENRAGING because they're generally in that terrible preteen stage... but I'll save that story for another day.

24 finale whinging, spoilers ahoy.Collapse )

24 got cancelled. I'm mourning- in real time.

I mean, I saw it coming (8 seasons is unreasonably long for an action series), but I've been situated in front of my TV for the JB torture hour for the last 3 years. I don't know what I'm going to do without Jack Bauer in my life :(

/wrists

...Alright, I'm overblowing this. For god's sake, I was nostalgic/sad when ER ended, and I had only watched 3 damn episodes. Okay, 24 was fucking awesome. Still is- at its lowest, its better than 90 percent of the things on television, even though they're just repeating the same shit at this point. It's like comfort food to me. No matter how many times a terrorist tries to set off a nuke somewhere, I still enjoy it- however, I'll just quote the S7 finale and say, "It's time", because it is.

Jack is canonically 45 now, has a granddaughter, and has had way too many bad days. As time goes on the show gets more unbelievable- saving the world twice? thrice? Okay. 10 times? WTF, is Jack the only competent person in the entire western hemisphere? Go ahead and read this in Chris Crocker's voice: LEAVE JACK BAUER ALONE.

Additionally, we all know what happens to Jack's girlfriends. Just call him "the girlfriend killer". If you're not up to speed, Jack has a new belle, the only one I think I've ever actually liked. Probably because she IS Jack Bauer. But with tits. They understand each other ~perfectly~! Regardless, I don't think I could handle watching him angst another season, and I doubt anyone else really wants to see it either. I already saw Tony pull his Woobie Destroyer Of Worlds, I don't need to run through that a second time.

Though, I have disagree with some others on the front that they "ran out of plots". Plots?! Give Jack a manbag and a gun and send him in a killing spree in any direction. There, I just wrote a season of 24.

...I heard they're doing a movie.

So I sucked it up and changed my Web Mastering credit for the AP 2D Design class. I have a feeling I'm going to hate myself later for this, but what the hell- I should at least give it a shot, considering my lack of AP classes.

On a completely different matter- I pretty much gave up on NCIS. I'll always love what I loved, and I'm never going to stop being a NCIS fan- but I think my time as an active watcher is reaching its end. I missed an episode and I just... haven't been interested in it since, for a variety of reasons.

First of all, it just... well, sucks. There's no other word for it. As a lover of bad drama, directionless violence, and general stupidity in my TV, I can honestly say that it sucks this season. Interactions between characters are either mean, stupid or make no sense whatsoever. Plots are so bad I literally asked myself, "why is this so bad?" during one episode. When I can guess the killer on NCIS, you know the crime plot is a complete asspull. Every other episode is one of our own. I'm not invested in any of the characters this season. You could kill off GIBBS, the lifeblood of the show, and I'd probably not give a crap.

In addition- I'm not gonna lie, Micheal Weatherly (Tony) is really irritating me with his comments as of recently. You know I love the man, but he's really been grating on me. its pretty obvious I don't support canon tony/ziva (or posts6!ziva, frankly), but why can't he just bullshit an answer to these "tiva" questions instead of giving into this drama? I've seen a "MW DOESN'T LIKE TIVA, MAKES IT OBVIOUS" article in my feeds pretty much every day this week. His love plot on Dark Angel was basically a worse version of everything tony/ziva has been accused of being, and I didn't see him complaining (of course, opposite Jessica Alba I wouldn't be complaining either).

Somehow, I get the feeling hes so hardcore against it because he has a problem with CdP, which has been suggested everywhere (with some evidence, I admit) since about s5. I don't know anything and shouldn't be assuming, but just because of this presumption I made I can barely stand to see the two characters interact at all. I can't stop thinking, "LOL WOW this must be awkward" or "I bet he didn't like doing this" during all of their scenes together. Which is kind of a problem, considering they're major cast members and interact all the time.

And so- Goodnight, sweet prince. We let the good times roll, and I think its about time for us to say our goodbyes- unless you start being worth watching, then maybe we can work something out ;)

Only a week late! Sorry, school was killing me, not to mention the clips were hard to find and so many of them were fake/sucked that I wasted even more time. It was also my first time using my new video editing software, which, despite it's fanciness, seemingly makes everything from clip splitting to cutting and pasting a 2 minute ordeal. Yeah, yeah, excuses excuses.
