Heroes Post!?

Finally finished the second half of season four. Yes. Slow topleka is slow.

Brief comments:
-Good to see Adam again. Less good to see him getting staked like that. : (
-I actually miss Mohindir.
-How many times must we kill Nathan? Really.
-I laughed in the courtroom/diner scene when Sylar was trying to list all the people he's killed.
-I'm glad Charlie had a happy life finally.
-Matt kinda annoys me now.
-I hope Sylar's turnaround actually sticks this time. I like him as a hero.
-Claire is still as annoying as ever. I still don't like her or her foolishness. Seriously...worst season ending ever.

My TV addiction these days is White Collar. Maybe I should make White Collar posts. XD
Aoi - What?

I'm so confused.

Whoaaa...I haven't posted here in a while, and now I'm doing it just to complain. Go me. Actually, never mind. There's no point in complaining when I just just close the thread and walk away.

Hello, everyone! How are you? I've missed you. ^-^

I actually do get work off of Craig's List. Acting work, even. But for the most part, I just get agents telling me I need to pay them hundreds of dollars for professional headshots or special classes with them so that I can be the next star. Once in a while, though, I run into something a little sneakier. Like this. The title of the job posting was "Feature Film Now Casting." Innocuous enough. The thread said that it was looking for people to be extras in an upcoming film. Hiring extras off Craig's List isn't unusual, so I fired off an email with my resume and headshot. owo

And here is the lovely response:

But wait, there's more. The next day, I got this email from Ms. Jane Doba.

On Complaining

Hey, I take as much issue with Twilight as you do. Really. But if you're complaining that Twilight is bad because if ruins vampire mythology, you might not want to be using a Vampire Knight avatar at the time.

Also, just because Twilight isn't well written doesn't mean that Harry Potter is the gold standard of children's/young adult literature. Rowling isn't the only person in the world who's written decent fantasy. (See: Dianna Wynne-Jones, Cornelia Funke, Lloyd Alexander, Ursula K. Le Guin)

Oh, and if you don't like Twilight, here's a protip: STOP GOING TO SEE THE MOVIES. I know you enjoy being obnoxious to the fans, but you vote with your money. The more you go to see them, the more you encourage studios to make more. And let's be honest, you'd be royally ticked off at people if they came to make fun of you at your movies. Imagine a troop of "Christians" in the theater yelling at everything on screen that is "demonic" in the Harry Potter movies. Yeah. (P.S. Normal Christians don't think Harry Potter is demonic.)

Wawawa!

What I'm not watching now:
-I fell behind on Heroes last year sometime in November. I honestly don't know when I'm going to catch up. As great at this season has been, I'm starting to get tired.
-Nearly all of this season's anime. Not impressed this time around. Ookamikakushi, especially, is sadness. For a collaboration between Ryukishi07 and Peach Pit, it's somehow less than the sum of its parts.


What I'm watching now:
-Durarara!! Despite my earlier comments, DRRR!! is definitely keeping my attention. Apparently light novels are the way to go these days.
-White Collar is my new live action wonderful show that I watch a lot. Because it's good. And Matty B. is from CMU. Represent!


What I just finished watching:
-Monk. Over. All over. Loved it.
-Liar Game. Over until the movie. Totally not as good as the manga, but they pulled through in the end anyway.

My Christmas Card

Today, I received a decently sized envelope in the mail blessed with both thickness and weight. I could not help but be excited about the prospects of such an envelope, especially when I noticed through the wide plastic window on the front that the envelope contained...another envelope! A letter within a letter! Will wonders never cease? With hands shaking nervously, I turned over the envelope, and I was greeted with this message:

WE CARE

DEAR VALUED POSTAL CUSTOMER:

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding and sincerely regret any inconvenience that you have experienced.

PLANT MANAGER


Ah, I see! So the large, windowed envelope on the outside was merely an apology for the shoddy manner in which my letter was delivered! Well, no harm done. After all, it was forwarded to me in such an expeditious fashion with such concerted efforts that I am truly beholden to my erudite high school teachers for making me memorize all those vocab words.

And so, with fear and trembling in my heart, I opened the envelope to see what horrors had been done to my Christmas card. To my utter dismay, there was little more than a tear across the top of the envelope of such a nature that I could spy a mere few square millimeters of a glittering Christmas card within. Truthfully, I had been hoping for some burn marks or even a gunshot wound - signs of a struggle with a disgruntled post worker. But no, only a tiny window into the beautiful card that lay within. I opened the envelope to reveal it's gold-lined interior, and a stunning glittery Christmas card embossed with shapes of holly and ivy. I opened the card slowly, barely daring to imagine the wonderful message that awaited me:

Wishing you happiness this holiday season and throughout the new year.

I just had a terrible idea >.>

I just got a great/terrible/silly/etc.etc. idea. I'd need a decent video camera to pull it off, but...::ponders::

Anyway, informal survey for all my friends:
-What sort of stuff do you think defines anime fandom?
-What are the highlights and/or main attractions of an anime convention?

That Meme. Yeah, that one.

I was gonna do that one meme where you update everyone on your life, but I realized there's a lot that I still prefer to keep on the down low. Like my full name, my dating situation, my siblings...

Yeah, I know. I'm weird like that. But I will try to sum things up for people who want to know what I'm up to these days.

I've graduated from college, I'm currently working as a writer, artist, and actor for various different groups. I live in Texas, and I am in a serious relationship with a nice guy. Anyone who wants more personal details, need only stop by soymilk_pudding which not only includes such tantalizing facts as my name (who wants to know, really?), but also such great things as what job I just completed and how I still don't have any furniture in my apartment except for that one chair I pulled out of the dumpster.
