Jeez... it's been a while, hasn't it? Sorry about that... I just haven't been motivated to write here lately. Just not a lot to say, I guess.
Anyways... last night Tarina IMed me this little gem of a fanfic description... she always sends me the bad ones so I can laugh at them (and I think she's also trying to further my dislike of fanfic in general): "When the Jedi council find out that Obi-wan is pregnant they send Qui-Gon to prison for seducing a minor while Obi-Wan is sent to live with his real family." Seriously. WHAT. THE. FUCK. is that all about? If they had at least changed Obi-Wan to a female, I could tolerate it, though it would still sound extremely lame, but this is just ridiculous. At least use SOME logic!
OH! In super exciting news, I GOT U2 TICKETS! YAY! They're coming back to the Bay Area in November and I was able to get tickets on Sunday. EEEEE! The seats aren't the greatest, but I didn't want to pay $160 for better ones and I didn't want the $65 GA tickets because I couldn't take that much waiting and standing. But fun will be had no matter where I'm sitting! Woot!
What else... what else... TV shows! Lost was EXCELLENT this week... definitely one of the best of the season. My love of Jack has grown even more, if possible ('cause he's been my favorite since the beginning of the show), and Sun rocked all in this episode. Even Sawyer was decent and helpful (pardon me as I die of shock)! And I was still a bit surprised that Boone was the one to die because he was the obvious choice. Kind of funny, right? Boone wasn't one of my favorites, but I was still crying throughout the end of the episode... when Claire gave birth, Boone telling Jack to let him go, Jack having to tell Shannon about Boone. Just beautifully done. And the score music at the end? That piano piece? GORGEOUS. I want a soundtrack for this show!! So yeah. GREAT episode. I thought Alias was decent this week, but not great. Just kind of weird. But last week's episode, "Tuesday" was great. Probably my favorite of the season so far.
I'm already missing Battlestar Galactica and July can't get here soon enough. Damn... that was a whammy of a finale, wasn't it? The last few minutes? Crazy. CRAZY! I was definitely not expecting that. Such an awesome show! I must get Tarina to watch it eventually 'cause I definitely think she'd enjoy it.
I'm definitely suffering from Gilmore Girls withdrawal... bring on the new episodes, WB! Laura and I have still been getting together on Tuesdays, despite the hiatus, but at least we've had Veronica Mars to enjoy. I'm really loving that show... Kristen Bell is constantly impressing me, as is the rest of the cast. And the writing is just superb. I love my witty shows!
And in really belated news, Fox has canceled Point Pleasant. And they're using its timeslot to air the remaining episode of Tru Calling. So I guess that means that whatever genre show they decide to kill next year, we'll get to see the remaining Point Pleasant episodes when they cancel that upcoming show? 'Cause that's how it works with Fox, sadly (Firefly, Wonderfalls, Keen Eddie... just to name a few). Stupid crappy network! I'm not saying Point Pleasant was the greatest show ever. But I was enjoying it and the show was progressively getting better. And I just hate the fact that they won't at least finish off the run of episodes. ARGH. So yeah, color me annoyed. I hope Marti finds another show to work on soon because I do enjoy her work.
Anyways... need to get some scanning done, so off I go. Hope everyone is well! Also, a big for all my BtVS buds who miss the show as much as me. It was lovely reading all your comments about how the show had affected you as well.
