Don't worry, Yoda. I'm sure I'm the one who comes off more pathetic in this situation.

Not at all, you're awesomely informative (and I just found out "awesomely" is a word...).

The deer, why voldemort can't straight up murder harry, and that old lady are all explained.

The deer and voldemort parts would be spoilers but I can tell you about the old lady
Quote
old lady was killed and then turned into a puppet by voldemort as a potential trap for harry if he went there for clues. she didn't say anything in front of hermione because she was actually voldemort's monster snake in disguise. harry can actually talk to snakes since one of his ancient ancestors is some other guy that's considered a bad dude in harry potterland. if the old lady tried talking in front of hermione then she would've known it was a trap

the deer is interesting and gets revealed in the 2nd part of DH.

And as far as them always getting away, that stuff always seems more plausible in the books. Take LOTR for example. Reading that it seems to make sense how sam and frodo make it to the end. In the movie it seems like they're just lucky or all the enemies are retarded

Strange, I thought retarded enemies were the epidemic in the Hollywood industry... James Bond flicks attest to this, he's a one man army in a world where no one can aim. :P

That and the common, as I dub kidus-bookus-afflictus.... where kids always win in the adult world. x)

Sunshine: Your argument makes sense but it still didn't do it for me. Maybe it was the weird blurry / shaky cam stuff they started doing at the end.

Yeah, then that happens too, where even if a movie makes sense it's still falls flat.  Magnolia did that to me.  It was good, but I'd never watch it again becuase the drama just.... failed to me at some point.  It didn't hit a climax I wanted.

In regards to Sunshine, this may sound like a weak argument - but hear me out.

You need some sort of drama.  A movie would be no good if their flight plan went smoothly, or any sort of conflict didn't go through.  Sure they could have had a crewmate go nuts and kill people, but the motive wouldn't have felt genuine.  I kinda liked this mysterious guest - he was unclear, brutally strong, and keeping them from a desperately needed goal.  There were many possibilities for this; I just took the villain for what it was - I loved the cinematography of when he was around too haha

Watched Johnny Dangerously.  An awesome slapstick mob flick from the mid 80's.
YOU FARGIN SNEAKY BASTAGE!!!  YOU ICE-HOLE! haha

Also watched LA Confidential.  I watched this when I was a lot younger, and it took me several watches to take in the whole story.  Wonderfully complex, deep, and not enough movies like this are made anymore.  This one was a smart mystery... it's almost sad to think the last *big one* was Sherlock Holmes.

Saw it finally - a review from someone who DIDN't READ the books (only first 2...but hey).

-Good movie overall
-Like many have said, camping could have been condensed a bit.  I get the build-up for some psychological tension, but too often it was looking at nothing.
-The Hermione/Harry dance scene was nice and suitable for the problems they have.
-The violence (poor Ron) was happily welcomed to something a bit more honest when screwing around with magic
-I didn't understand the old woman bit when they go into that town.  She just says stuff then *poof*, bad stuff happens.  I thought she would have been a good source for advice?
-Loved the 3 Brother's story - well down, perfect for the "wizards and witches" aesthetic.
-Is it just me, or is Luna Lovegood hiding either some serious weight gain or a pregnancy?  The first time you see her, you see her from the breast up.  THe second time, you see her in overalls (its common for filmakers to "hide" pregnancies/weight this way).  She looked a lot chubbier too (her arms, and a scene where she bends down to Harry).  tsk tsk tsk.
-Definitely slow, but probably flushes the characters out better
-Anyone find it awfully amusing how how Voldemort with his astounding power and mastery of dark arts, cannot kill Harry and friends, despite them ONLY attacking with magical toys (Hermione's bag of tricks that she stole from Felix the Cat), and Harry ONLY using "classroom" magic?  Haha; I mean, I think I'm numbed to what RPGs have done to me - but I'm surprised no one can summon some lightning, or a blizzard.  At least they have magic to turn on candles and flip pages in books. :P
-I didn't read the books, so any reason that Harry was drawn by that glowing deer?  Or was it a deus ex?

I honestly dislike a lot of them.  I kinda went to the "action, real-time, RPG" route...

Um.  Final Fantasy Tactics was awesome I guess.  It got annoying with some of the super hard missions.  The execution site was ass.  And dealing with any of those super-swordsman classes didn't tickle either.

Rondo of Swords made a very interesting tactic system, I personally call it "the two in one" system for having you slice at multiple enemies in the way - appealing more to my faster-paced tastes in RPGs.

Rhapsody.  lol, it was easy, nice way to lull into the genre..

Venus & Braves.  The quintessential SRPG experience and I shed a tear a day that it isn't here.  Similar to a childhood favorite of mine....

Ogre Battle.  The music was something, and it's fun fuckin around with a party to figure out what works.  Go princess class!!! =D

Tactics Ogre - mainly for story, awesome (SNES/PSX - NOT PSP) character portraits, and fat, stubby little sprites made me go "tee hee".

Unexpectedly beat it last night (the end comes quick, and almost suddenly - then it plays in a nice chain that can't have you stop).

EPIC ending.  I know some won't like it.  But the reveal and the remaining mysteries have will have me reading every post on any new game coming up (hopefully, not a sidestory title).

I was SUPER happy that this moved the plot along.

Code:
Using the Piece of Eden was a nice treat to the series, helping to explain why so many sought it.  It was interesting to see how it could make the enemies turn against each other, fully submit themselves, or simply be killed by it.  Many unanswered questions.  The "stab" scene is somewhat eluded to by Subject 16 and Juno [the irony in her name and who she kills is beautiful], and rumours about its meaning make sense.  It seems to the big speculation is.... [spoilers??] apprently Lucy's non- first civilization blood and human hybrid (that permit assassin's to be agile, quick, and have that infinite vitality) would be tainted because of the sort of feeling Lucy and Desmond have.  Desmond needs to find "eve" to keep that hybrid-god-human blood strong.  Not confirmed, obviously, but I thought it was a cute rumour.  Subject 16's bare reveal doesn't spell too many good things though. 

The series kinda makes me sad when it swaps to the modern-day part... a sort of one-sided struggle, and foreshadowing of many bad events kinda makes me gloomy.

The part with Cesare had me confused...he made a big deal out of nothing at the end?

That, and subject 16's puzzles, for some reason, creep me the fuck out.
(maybe the combination of creepy sounds, colours, and conspiracies that break apart the world as nothing but conspiracy for power hungry men)

Watching Sunshine...

Between this and Moon there has been some great under the radar sci-fi

I watched Moon the other night - awesome flick.  Im glad it wasn't another "robot turns psycho" flick; but it was pretty deep and emotional - amazingly played by Sam Rockwell (an under-the-radar actor, IMO).

Sunshine...wow.  I could skip the WHOLE movie, without building up, and the ending climax will still put me on the edge of my seat.

My boyfriends friend is over just now, and I totally fail at social interaction. Here are some conversations we have had so far.


Him: "Just out of bed?"
Me: "No...this is just what I look like."

Him: "That's a lot of plushies."
Me: "yeah...I like cute things."
Him: "Oh, okay."

Not to mention I've so far told him my entire knowledge of bees and vitamin B. He obviously didn't care but my mouth wouldn't stop going. Now Hugh has left us alone in the same room and he is just looking at me but I'm typing this and pretending not to notice because I don't want to open my mouth and say something stupid again.

EDIT: Fuck! Now I've just offered to cover him in cream cheese.

Blown up a bit, by 2:37 after....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbAJivTHPoQ

I have that with a few people... some of them are awesome and I wanna talk to them.  And instead I just make conversations that would be written with a lot of ellipses.
"Hey.... so [um], what's going on?  Man, I'm so...tired. Work is bullshit haha". =/

Then, unfortunately, there are a few people I just don't like and I can't seem to shield it that well.  Lack of eye contact, bored speech, beating around the bush.  Funny thing is, some people don't take a hint (particularly guys flirting with me).  Otherwise conversation is a strong point with me - I thank god for that, works well for job interviews

What are you all studying?

Current haps: watching a motown and soul music special on wttw 11. heating up the hot tub

I'm dying to go in my hot tub... this time of year it's the steam keeping the part above your shoulders that, isn't submerged, nice and toasty. x)
I can't WAIT for snow next!

I'm taking Art History.  Sooooooo maaannny posssiibilities with that there... but I love it. =)

Well, most girls I've "hooked up" with have had rather clean... throats. Yeah.

Anyway, I always make this mistake of thinking I'm just out of my teen years, then I remember I'm closer to 30 than 20, and my mind is boggled. Damn you, progressive flow of time to a direction where increased entropy results! Damn you to hell!

I still see myself as younger than 22.  That's not old to begin with... but it still sucks being first year at uni where everyone else IS 17 to 19 years old - I get confused by that sometimes.
Maybe its a good thing?  Living rushed would be horrible.  And it's hard to define the 20-somethings other than an age where you're living off the air of being a teen and still doing crazy shit, but settling into more studious and settling habits of what the 30's bring.... I guess.  I dunno.  Seems most people wanna get married in their mid-30's or later now haha
8608  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: No one hitting AssCreed: B? on: November 28, 2010, 11:07:47 PM
My theory is that only people who played the first game directly after it's release (and the glorious hype train) felt really burned. I played it last fall, and while I saw it's faults, I didn't really find anything hateable about it. I think if it hadn't been hyped to death, people would have played it for what it was, and generally said, "oh, this game is kind of cool, a bit repetitive, but some really interesting things". Instead it's, "OMG this game isn't the second coming of Pizza Jesus the Third!" I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, but I really had some fun with it, far removed from it's initial hype. No question the second was far better and improved (instant GOTY material), though.

You also paid way, way less than they did. Even if they had realistic expectations they still paid $60 for the game, and if they didn't feel they got their $60 worth of entertainment they're going to be disgruntled.

I have that problem with a lot of game's nowadays.  They take so long to make for just 20 hours of gameplay, and ringing in at $60-$70.  I like a lot games with extra options and play modes.

Let's just say that someone was not too pleased that I lost any and all drive for ... "hanky panky" as she calls it ... for about a month after I rotated into OBGYN.

...and some girls have forests down there. I was afraid I'd stuck in the overgrowth.

Brutal, Lev...brutal.  At least contemporary, American women that you *would* hook up with will hopefully be on that forest like a papermill cutting down trees.  And if it helps, wihtout saying *too* much, I make sure I'm showered and clean and smelling pretty before doctors look at my... um... my throat (I get strep a lot).

Wait... I'm turning 26 in a couple of days.... I'M OLD!!!!!!!!!!

Haha you're young, retard!  You're the 20-something age with all the freedoms of adult and youth!!
REJOICE!!
8610  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: November 28, 2010, 10:49:27 PM
It's part of my rotation. I'm in it for two months. I have two weeks left.

... 'old generation'? How old do you think I am? I'm 26. :(

You're my brothers age, it's only "older" to me if it's after that haha

In regards to gyno...
It can't be fun; doc/friend says he desensitized to (and I quote) "all sorts of things down there".  Goddamn genitals can be nasty.  One of my classes had a student do a project on STDs... I was turned off for months.
