3 Month Roundup: Watching Saturday, December 26th, 2009

While gaming and comics dominated the last three months for me, I've still managed to watch a fair bit. Anime: A slower season for me, again because it was dominated by gaming: - Basquash and NEEDLESS came to their own respectively crazy conclusions, though I wish they'd each gotten ...

An olden tale of woe. Saturday, August 15th, 2009

A thread on a certain forum disappeared before I could finish getting this typed up, and realized that the story does not live on in old bloggings, so I figure it would be a waste not to share this 10 year old story- The year is 1999, the month, May. ...

DVD-A-Day 16 – The Work of Michael Gondry Monday, June 8th, 2009

One of the collections in the Director's Label series of DVDs, this collects 27 music videos, miscellaneous stories, and a 75 minute film, though for the purposes of this, and my particular interests, I'm only looks at the music videos (someday I'll get back to the rest of the ...

DVD-A-Day 15 – Battle Warrior Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Behold the power of Tony Jaa's name, it can make me buy a completely terrible movie. Playing the villain's lead hench, even his pair of fight scenes couldn't save this movie. Very much the definition of a B-movie, but unfortunately one that doesn't quite swing back from ...

DVD-A-Day 7 – George Carlin: Complaints and Greivances Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Never expected to receive this for a Christmas present, but I did, so there you go. I do love Carlin's stuff, and I've only ever listened to bits of this one, so it was quite a nice treat to watch him give the full thing. Recorded less than ...

Double Feature Night. Friday, May 15th, 2009

So, a long, long day before watching the new Star Trek (again) with my little brother and his girlfriend, followed by finally watching Chocolate after I got home. As these are the first movies I'm covering, I think it'll be fair to point out that I'm rarely, ...

Dollhouse 8-12 Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Right. Just caught up with 8-12, as I've been pathologically unable to keep up with it as it was airing. Whatever the status of the will it/won't it air 13th episode, Fox needs to renew this right away. This is really, really good television and it needs ...

and the entertainment side Sunday, November 11th, 2007

Let's see... Books Finally finished up Steven Erikson's Midnight Tides the end of last week or so, fantastic as usual, though the characters perhaps outshone the story this time, particularly Tehol and Bugg, one of the best duos ever. Kicking myself for putting it down for 4 months. Argh. Plowed through ...
