Oh, True Blood. Just because I haven't seen it before, doesn't mean I ever needed to. The pacing is just so crazy off this season. I felt overwhelmed, crushed under an unpleasant pile of weirdness and one of Sookie's worst plans ever! Ah well, there are bound to be some... well, it wasn't exactly a stinker so much as it was BZUH?!

Feeling el crapola lately. I hate having a defunct brain, I hate it even more when it prevents me from doing even the fun stuff. Sighs.

Peace, Ghani

Nine: Okay, so I liked it. Really liked it, actually. Sue me. Daniel Day Lewis was his usual unusual self (he's an alien, I swear! Or... some sort of strange primordial force!) The musical numbers were gorgeously done, Marion Cotillard was touching and beautiful and owned my favorite number, the angry strip tease! An underrated movie with an undeservedly bad reputation. Granted, I don't really care for Fellini, so I didn't really care whether or not it was like him. (If you're going to use symbolism, isn't it antithetical to use it like a blunt instrument? I'm looking at you, too, Kurosawa!)

Terminator Salvation: ZOMG, someone made a movie out of Terminator fanfic! Seriously, I didn't dislike it, but... didn't it seem like the premise of a fanfic plot to anyone else? Especially in the fact that it centers on an OC who touches and saves the life of every iconic, major character, gets a bitchin' gorgeous girlfriend, is half-awesomely kickass robot who overcomes his programming or destiny or whatever and makes the ultimate sacrifice at the end? I liked Marcus, but found that I kept wanting more of Kyle, and John and Kate. Especially Kyle because, jeez, Anton Yelchin is awesome, peeps!

So... I've been sort of absent lately, and that's mostly because I've just felt sort of blah lately, between the heat and just general anxiety issues. Went to get my hair cut last Friday; my sister's regular hairdresser was snotty to her and I ended up with just some random woman who... really didn't seem to know what she was doing. Needless to say, it doesn't look great (which is why no pictures, when you got such lovely ones of me back in December!)

I also realized that I've basically lost all of that built up immunity I've had for going out in public, which is depressing, honestly. I used to go on trips to see my friends and do a modest amount of shopping. Sighs. I suppose, when things even out again with both mine and my sister's lives, I can start the process of building it up again, but... there it is, le sigh.

Shutter Island: A Short Review - Spoilers )

Night at The Museum 2: An Even Shorter Review - Hank Azaria, I love you! Greek kick-ass power! The movie was cute, though I'm not sure why the filmmakers thought kids'd be so captivated by the romance between Larry and Amelia Earhart. A nice way to spend a couple of hours, not outstanding but pleasant.

Alice in Wonderland - You Guessed It, A short Review - Loved it. Was surprised at how much I loved it, even though everyone I know recommended it. I adore Mia Wasikowska. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter was excellent!

Haven't gotten out to see any of the summer movies (see: above). Was hoping to see Prince of Persia or A-Team (my childhood demanded it!), but it didn't happen. Last Air Bender is still on the horizon and of course Harry Potter!

True Blood 3x01: spoilers )

Doctor Who: Love, love, love the new season. Matt Smith, you are a wonder! And to think I ever doubted you or Karen Gillan! It took a bit for the season to get going, in my opinion, but it's been absolutely divine since "Time of the Angels"! Oh and River Song! I could not love you more, though I already do from what I knew of you in last season, and I'd thought that was impossible back then!

So. We ended up not going to the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire yesterday for the second year after getting there by hook or by crook for I think it was twelve years consecutively beforehand. Which means I didn't see [livejournal.com profile] aragornslove or get my fortune read for free by one of my sister's coworkers, or just generally revel in the glorious atmosphere. But, more than that, it's made me start thinking about my own state of mind in the past two years. I can make excuses, and they wouldn't be untrue, about having been sick yesterday not having the spare cash, or point out that my regular medieval faire buddy moved away two years ago. But in past years, I've literally gotten up out of my sick bed after two weeks of being bed ridden to go at least for an hour on the last day.

This leads me to examine more closely how my agoraphobia's been going through a particular rough patch: even the things I'm supposed to enjoy, that I know won't come around for another year, feel, not only like a chore, but actually are a frightening proposition. But hasn't it been this bad in the past? I suppose it has, but situations have changed (drastically, in some cases) as well. I dunno.

On the upside, I've finally gotten my sister completely addicted to True Blood, kick ass! She resisted for a long time, but I was sneaky, heh, and when they showed the first season over New Years week, I was sort of subtly putting it on until I was her start to pay attention and get interested. We watched the second season on On Demand over the weekend and she now knows the excellence that is Godric's storyline. Hearts!

You Are Sam
You are a bit of a mystery - both to others and even yourself.
You're still coming to grips with who you are. There are parts of yourself that you still need to accept.

You are a caring and protective person. You can't help but be concerned about the people you love.
You are a bit of a loner. You are still searching deep and meaningful connections in life.

Hm, I wouldn't have thought it but, yeah, the description actually does fit me.

A bunch of people on my flist have done this one, [livejournal.com profile] shawnalasex was the most recent, and I've been wanting to try it for a while. So, here goes! Oh, and i found I had to limit it to shows that are on right now because I couldn't choose with all my back-favorites; the Jossverse alone could take up most of the list!

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don't cheat!

1. Leverage
2. True Blood
4. Supernatural
5. Merlin

Actually, I'm kinda surprised I didn't get Gran. She must not be one of the choices! ;-P
