Gackt, which is, of course, all Nikki's fault.... as usual. :lol:

An incredibly loud.... err, flock, heard? Swarm? - of cicadas, crickets, and katydids outside my window, as well as WH13.

I can't see that episode until the 28ttttthhhh! It sucks.

I WAS watching The Guild's music video (Do You Wanna Date My) Avatar, though! Hilarious shit what with Felicia Day feeling herself up every other 'scene'.

Currently? Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

No, I'm not listening to Pink Floyd on loop. It's just a coincidence (or iTunes fail).

Are we back to the Hood/Rufus=thud thing again???

Uhm, crickets. Lots and lots of crickets. Although I just finished watching the Johnny Depp version of Willy Wonka/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I never did see that one... probably cuz the version of it I saw terrified the shit out of me as a child. The concept of the hero breaking the rules and stealing some candy absolutely horrified me.

Yes, I was that black and white. To a certain extent, I still am.

Eh? Stealing?? What, the Fizzy Lifting Drinks?? You do know Wonka was intending for the Buckets to drink those, right?

The Johnny Depp version is... well, the weird factor is fairly high. It's really nothing like the old version at all. Depp is, of course, absolutely brilliant, he plays Wonka quite over the top and not at all mentally stable, but it's all to the good. The other characters are fleshed out a little bit more, and even if you can't understand everything the Oompa-Loompas happen to be singing, a copy of the book on hand doesn't go to waste with the other movie, either. (Song lyrics are, of course, in the book.) It's visually quite impressive; Tim Burton's style is, as always, remarkably recognizable.

Train going by, I love to hear the whistles....

I was, what, eight? Nine? ANYTHING involving people misbehaving freaked me out. If one did not behave perfectly, one was a horrible person and I could not understand how they would do such things.

Trust me. I was very extreme in my concept of right and wrong back then. I still can barely understand why people do stupid/horrible things. Like those bastards selling used computers at 'discount' prices. Those effing computers, which are, like, five or more years old, are being sold for barely less than a brand new bottom range computer... and the bottom range computers are 100x better than those other old pieces of crap! I don't know how anyone can willingly and knowingly take money for that trash. Ugh - I'd feel like I was selling my soul to the devil and I've never even believed in hell!

Your development was a little skewed, wasn't it?

Don't ask me where it came from! I sure haven't figured it out because my parents, as far as I can tell, are not like that.

I didn't watch that much tv as a kid, to tell you the truth. And I liked Gargoyles at that age - that so is SO not black and white.

Birds, enjoying the little bit of sunshine we're finally getting after... three, four? days of miserable cold and damp. Of course, it's still cold, but at least now it's sunny and cold, which is much less depressing.

My mind... which is still squeeing about Sanctuary. I think that show is rising to the top of my favourite-shows-current-on-air list.

Mmph. (kicks at House/Lie to Me/Castle/Bones/Fringe, all of which she missed this week due to hospital visits) What season is Sanctuary in, anyway? If I do pick it up, I want to start from the beginning.

It's currently on season 2 and I believe it is on the Hulus. Season one is super cheap - something like 22 bucks on amazon.com? I'm waiting for the dollar to weigh in Canada's favour and then I'm going to BUY IT.

Wow. You, buying a series?? It must be good.

Yeah, S1 of Bones was about that price, but I think it was far fewer episodes than the later seasons, hence fewer disks, hence lower price. Though Target had a sale a little while back and I got four seasons of House for $20/ea. That was niiiiiice, since seasons 2-4 are usually twice that.

Yeah, Sanctuary only has thirteen episodes a season, but in the s1 dvds they put in the webseries that came before season one. So technically it has 21 episodes.

Heeeey, I own a LOT of DVDs! Over 225, actually!

What is really telling, though, is that I'm contemplating buying the 35 dollar season pass from iTunes in order to get season two in HD without the Syfy logo plastered on it. I determined that they post the episodes a 2 AM on Saturday morning, which is about three to four hours after I get the show in hd off of usenet anyway.

Why does a logo matter *that* much? I mean, granted, they're annoying, but I wouldn't pay to have it removed...
