healingmirth: Ray Kowalski - all stressed out and no one to hit (stressed)
[personal profile] healingmirth
Cats are terrible, terrible creatures, and I got like four hours of sleep last night in half-hour increments, and haven't accomplished anything in days. Also, I wiped out on an icy sidewalk in award-winning fashion on Sunday afternoon.

and then today happened )

If the Penguins don't beat the Avs tonight, I'm quitting life. Also, why is no one reading my subconscious mind and writing hockey fic for me?




Finished reading nothing. Basically nothing in process, scared to start Jackdaw in case it is also terrible.

I read another chapter or two of The Suffragette Scandal last night. Don't like the dude, don't particularly like the lady. Wish they would just go their separate ways, but I suppose there'd be no novel then, and it would be unfair to their new love interests, who might otherwise have been happy.

....bah. Well played, universe, well played. That'll teach me to whine about the weather. =P

(if you're going to snow will you PLEASE snow enough to justify staying home? Rather then making me slog out into it, slide around on ice, and spend hours stuck on a bus that is stuck halfway up an unplowed hill?)

In other news, it is a sad day when I return to Twitter - which I have had a hate affair with for a very long time, wherein I view Twitter as only one step above the inane pit that is Facebook. However, at this point? Twitter is less toxic than Tumblr is, at least for my mental health. So, you can find me @Darthrosen if you want to know more about the indie game developer scene then you really wanted to, as that's primarily what I'm following over there.

Why yes, I do regret that "game development" was not a thing when I got my Associates from the Art Institute, and wasn't something I could justify for business purposes when I went back for the BA. But dammit, I taught myself html and css and photoshop and any number of other computer related things. I can teach myself a coding language for making games in.

(though any advice on good places to start would be wonderful. I'm looking specifically at Ruby and HTML5. anyone got some good "n00bs start here" links?)

ugh, so behind on these

4x13: A Better Human Being

wendelah1: Astrid, Walter, and Peter are eating and watching TV (Fringe Rewatch)
[personal profile] wendelah1 posting in [community profile] fringe_rewatch
"How about a non-mad scientist who was trying to do good and had something go wrong?" - Wendelah complaining about the plethora of episodes about mad scientists on Fringe.

The moral is clear: be careful what you wish for. This week's episode is a creepy take on that theme featuring a scientist whose attempt at creating a better human being results in a brood of hive-minded murderers. I'd say something went wrong all right. Very wrong.

Writer: Robert Chiappetta (story), Glen Whitman (story), Monica Owusu-Breen (teleplay), Alison Schapker (teleplay)
Director: Joe Chappelle
Originally aired: 17 February 2012

Synopsis: When an institutionalized schizophrenic patient describes a recent murder in detail, the Fringe team investigates. Olivia now remembers her three year relationship with Peter in vivid detail—except she's really only known him three months, so what's up with that, Fringe writers? Peter now believes she's his Olivia, too, which is convenient for all. Meanwhile, Walter and Agent Lee discover that the Cortexiphan stored at Massive Dynamic is missing—and that Olivia has recently been dosed with the drug.

Most Memorable Quote:
OWEN FRANK: (regarding his attempt to create a better human being) Can you imagine that? The hubris of trying to improve upon God?

Well, yeah, because it's a major theme of the series. This episode foreshadows the upcoming William Bell arc.

darthneko: disgruntled leopard in snow ([personal] ...dammit.)
[personal profile] darthneko
My icon describes everything, including the state outside the window which I'm getting really really tired of. Can it be spring now? Snow. Snow. Ice. Snow. (Always just enough to be inconvenient or gross, then it melts, we get half a day of nice dry sidewalks, and then it snows again. BLARGH.)

I'm cold and cranky and tired of winter now.

And then there's the rest of body stuff... )

Also done with winter. It and the scheduled ice storm later today can fuck off too.

Drop everything you're doing and read this now. Especially if you're coming from SGA fandom -- God, I've missed the fish-out-of-water humor (and possibly the extraterrestrials too). Spot-on voices, and the plot is a wonder.

Summary:
The alien queen stood, and the audience hushed. "We have been blessed by such a display," she said. "I do not think that our people have seen a pair of warriors so in tune with each other in a long time. How long have you two been married?"
Melinda blinked. Married?
"Oh, we're not --" Bobbi said, and then shut her mouth with a click of her jaw.
"Then you must allow me to marry you! A couple such as you should not be forced to wait one minute longer."


(The 'Bus is kidnapped by aliens, who politely offer to marry Bobbi and Melinda. Who are they to refuse such an offer?)

As I told the anonymous author I would happily marry m'self after receiving this gem, THIS IS THE FAKE-MARRIED-AMTDI-SLOW!BURN-SNARKY WARRIOR ROMANCE OF MY HEART!
