Media Mess

Media = read, watch, listen (and other things, but right now, I'm talkin' those three).

1. Read:
I finished reading Freaks and am now going to zip through Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn before I decide on my next big read. I'm thinking on reading The Doctor is Sick by Anthony Burgess.

2. Watch (this one is long, so you may want to get a snack. I'll wait........):
I already covered Dr. Horrible, so I won't discuss it further outside the comments section, I guess. I watched Kingdom of Heaven which had some nice eye candy and a pretty kick-ass story. I was impressed, but not as much as everyone else was. I also got my copy of Stacy back from my uncle who had it for about 2 years. I watched it twice.
As for newer movies, I've seen Wall-E, which I loved because it was so innocent and contained so little dialogue (even from the movie-goers surrounding me). I saw the second Futurama movie, which wasn't that great. It was just one long episode, but that's expected. It wasn't as funny as the first movie, but I absolutely loved the Kif/Amy/Zapp storyline. I saw Hellboy 2 and was blown away with all the vibrant colours and whatnot. Nuada was pure eye candy, but I also loved him for his tale. I have a thing for the villain who doesn't know why he's the villain (like Hook and Satan and even the Angel Islington). Plus it had a sufficient amount of Doug Jones.
And last night, I saw The Dark Night. All I want to say is that I never expected an even bigger botch-up of Two-Face's story than in Batman Forever. Let's just totally forget that Harvey Dent was married to Gilda, and who the fuck said Rachael Dawes could come back and date him? No really, did I mention this when I saw Batman Begins? Who the fuck is Rachael Dawes??
As for previews, I can't freaking wait for Watchmen, Hamlet 2, Tropic Thunder (okay, stop laughing, I just like Steve Coogan), and Death Race, the closest thing any Twisted Metal fan will get to a movie of it.
TV-wise, I saw the last 6 episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It ended quite well and am completely pleased with it, except that I wish they'd found Zuko's mom before the end. And Katara blood-bent some guy she thought killed her mother, but couldn't blood-bend Azula? Psht. Oh well :) And thanks to SurfTheChannel, I can now watch almost all the coolest shows I can think of, like Daria, Degrassi, How I Met Your Mother, Are You Afraid of the Dark, and so on.

3. Listen:
Introduced a few more people to Dionysos. Also got most of their albums. Was introduced to MC Lars while I was introducing MC Chris (they have a crossroad- Chris had guested in one of Lars's songs). Got some of the Abney Park that I had once lost, plus some more. And got The Slip, by Nine Inch Nails, and it's awesome :)
That's pretty much it, unless you count listening to all the deaf neighbours screaming incoherently in the halls, and having loud sex. Summer brings out the animal in us all, I guess.

I miss Daria. I used to tape it every day after high school and ended up with about five videos full. I haven't seen it since. Back in the day I had a mad fashion club impression of the main fashion club girl and people used to call me Daria to shit me off.

Remember that 'manly' episode with the song "It's good to be manleeeeeeeeee!"? And my other favourite was when they played cards on the casino ship thing.


OMG do you remember 'Parker Lewis Can't Lose'? I loved that but can hardly recall what it was about.

I do a pretty good impression of the fashion club girl that talks in slow motion.
"This toasterrrrrrrrrr is reallllly shinyyyyyy"
(I think that was from the first movie).

The one with the song... was it the musical hurricane episode entitled "Daria!" ? I tried watching it, but it was mislabeled :(
