Yeah, it's been a while. Here's a "quick" rundown of some of the pop culture stuff I've been consuming lately--to actually go into detail on any of these would require seperate entries for each. And probably also cuts:
--I read some more Xanth, a neat book about Asian culture (not just anime, but also like, foods, drinks, crafts, etc.), a cool big huge illustrated book about the history of sci-fi and an awesome prose novel about the early days of Superman that, among other things, totally NAILED the '30s culture.
--Played some more games, including Sims Medieval, various flash games on Kongregate, the new "You Don't Know Jack" and GASP! an actual physical board game!
--Watched the '60s Marvel toons (including "WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA THROWS HIS MIGHTY SHIIEEELLLD!" Any of you out there who know that song? It's now stuck in your head for the week. You're welcome!), the '60s Spiderman cartoon, the random '60s DC cartoons, the '60s and '70s Batman cartoons, all by Filmation, and am now onto the '60s Fantastic Four cartoon. Which, for a Hanna Barbera thing, isn't so bad. I dunno. I'm enjoying it so far. Then again, I only _semi_-ironically enjoy "Superfriends", so keep that in mind.
--Watched Torchwood up through "Children of Earth". Will never, ever, ever, ever, EVER blindly trust a fictional franchise again. The overwhelmingly, hatefully, POINTLESSLY bleak despair and high-octane nightmare fuel messed me up psychologically even worse than I already was--because of FICTION, which I was watching in the first place to ESCAPE from the depression of everyday life!--and put traumatizing images into my head that I can never, ever unsee. THANKS, writers!
--Finished Season 3 of Sarah Jane Adventures, too. Other than the stupid and gross ending of the last episode, don't really have much of a problem with that series. It's goofy sci-fi adventures against goofy-looking aliens WITH better special effects but WITHOUT slobbering, drooling, hormonal worship everywhere, so...basically what New Who should have been?
--Speaking of, I finally finished Season 4 of Doctor Who, all the specials, and have finally met Eleven! (party streamers, noisemaker) I have SO MUCH I WANT TO SAY ABOUT ALL OF THIS--but I've only got two friends on this blog and they both ignore me, including my best friend of over 10 years.
And...that's really the problem. Why I took several months to get around to updating this thing. It's not that I don't have stuff to say--TONS! All the time! I am just bubbling over with fangirl gush and angry fangirl bile and babble and theories and ideas! But NOBODY IS LISTENING. I've got no way at all to say these things where they'll become a conversation instead of a rant into the darkness, and that is just driving me completely bonkers CRAZY. Used to be fine with writing stuff down just for the sheer fun of organising my thoughts...when I was getting answered SOMETIMES. To not get answered at all is depressing. And makes me feel even weirder and crazier than I already do. :(
That's not to say I'm shutting this thing down, just...that's why the long abscence. Like anybody cares.
Oh! And I almost forgot--here is part 3 of the Williams Legacy--again, as if anyone was reading it. I could join an actual Sims LJ community, but...my writing style just doesn't fit in with them...
