The problem I find with about half of the Tin Man fic is that the authors seem to hate DG's actual parents.  I think the problem is a mater of perception.  And bad writing, maybe.  I think a lot of people see DGs parents arranging everything to be able to get power back.  I see it as her parents trying to arrange everything to get both their daughters back.  DG is probably the only one who can save Azkadellia, and she was obviously too scared to do that when it first happened.  If the queen just wanted to remain in power, all she had to do was not save DG.  But what about the plan they had to defeat the witch?  It was a very silly plan.  And here's the bad writing.  Azkadellia can't find the emerald.  She hasn't a chance.  As the queen hid it, she should know this.  So why are we trying to find the emerald before the eclipse?  Total eclipses don't happen that often on earth.  Add to that another sun and another moon, and when is the next time Azkadellia's going to get to implement her evil plan?

I'm just sayin'.

Just finished watching Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, and went poking around the IMDB boards, like I do.  I have found the most gross misinterpretation of the film ever.

To summarize:

Basically...Collapse )

I laugh.  I have seen some pretty interesting interpretations read into things before, and even agreed with them, but this takes the cake.

So, as some know, I've been wading through as many old episodes of Doctor Who as I can stand.  It's not that I don't like them, it's just that... well take the original Star Trek, make it older. and give it a lower budget.  Also, there are more than 700 episodes.

Anyway, I have finally finished the original run.  Meaning that I have watched at least one serial for each Doctor.  In Six's case, only the one.  Don't like him.  In other Doctors' cases, 75% of what was on Netflix.

So, after finishing the last of Seventh Doctor, I went on the Eight.  Netflix doesn't have Eight.  "Well," anyone who is familiar enough with Doctor Who might say, "There was only the one movie."  Yes.  But you see, it was an American movie.  i have managed to watch the movie nonetheless, Afterwards, I went to look up information, like I do.  Turns out the movie was an attempt to jump start an American version of the series.  And why did it fail?  Because Fox failed to advertise properly.  I add this to my list of shows that dies on account of being on Fox.

Not that I'm terribly disappointed.  I rather suspect the British woudl have never forgiven us.  But still, I'm amused.

On to the new series!

I finally watched Beowulf.  The animation is terrible.  Everything looks wrong.  The story is butchered.  There are plot holes everywhere.  Nothing makes sense.  I couldn't even finish it.  Couldn't even mock it, like The Source.

Do not watch.

Is bad.

This is my thanksgiving. After we finish eating, clear the table, and load the dishes, we all pull out the computers. 7 laptops, one iMac. From the 7 year old to the 55 year old. I offer you - my family.

Poor Mercury.  What's a girl to do when she goes out of her way to get herself drunk and seduce him, and all he does is pull her clothes back on?

All in all, I've never laughed so hard in two Halloween Parties.  Venus, we knew thee well.

I don't know what's more frustrating, being unable to find decent pictures of DIA or knowing that I was there just a few months ago and could have looked myself, if only i had known I would end up wanting to know.  Or knowing that it's not that far away, and I still can't just go and look.

They're expecting 40-50 % of students to come down with the swine flu this semester.  Am trying to tell myself that I don't get sick that easily.  And also, that i need to get more sleep.

We are not amused.  Or would not be if we had a different professor.
