Just wanted to say, I Aient Ded. Just in the middle of moving to a new apartment. Crossing my fingers that after I move this weekend, I can get back to normal activities...

...I need a Granny Weatherwax icon.

Dark of the Moon - Rant

(Do not read further if offended by negative movie reviews)

I'm home sick right now, and indulged in some movie watching. So...I just saw the third Transformers movie. There were SO many things in it that could have been awesome, but in fact weren't. Laserbeak had an incredible sequence where he was having a tea party with a little girl and then wreaked havoc. If handled better, it could have been really horrifying and wrenching. Instead it was 20 seconds or so and we went right back to the travails of the fairly unlikable human leads.

Speaking of whom, Bay apparently decided to turn Sam into a Douchebag, and replaced Mikaela, who was tough and brave and cool enough that you could almost forgive how painfully and offensively objectified she was, with a bimbo who existed solely to pout attractively while wearing tarty clothes. Ok, perhaps that was overly harsh. She had one good scene.

None of the Bots got any character development. Optimus, Megatron and Sentinel all had wonderful voice actors and could have been amazing. If any time had been spent on Sam and Bee's relationship, it would have been nice. Characters died and no one had any emotional reaction. WTF?

Soundwave was an awesome car. There were what appear to have been sparklings/hatchings in one scene, but no explanation or further development was given. The African sunlight did glint beautifully off various mech's armor, though.

Anyone know if a director's cut by a different director exists? It COULD have been so frikkin awesome, if only...

Icons

I really need to find/make some other icons. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to make a 100 x100 pixel picture without Photoshop or equivalent, which I still do not own. Perhaps its time to acquire software. I do get an educator discount because of the art class I teach, but its still dang pricey...

Miscellany

So now that I have a LiveJournal account, I suppose I should write something. Well, I work in a cube by day, doing boring but useful things, and at night and on the weekends, I paint, do martial arts, hike and participate in a variety of other outdoor activities, depending on the season. Technically I do not have time to read or write fan fiction, but I do it anyway.  Also lots of novels, though not as many now that there's an internet. Reading, not writing.

I am old enough to remember the original Transformers cartoon series, but I've moved on enough to acknowledge that the writing, acting and animation were, well, not the best. I tend to go through phases with fandoms, as I read everything that I like, and everything left over seems to be written by eager fourteen year olds. I was one of those once, so I do try not to judge. I think I'm quite glad that I didn't know about fan fiction back when I was a huuuge Lord of the Rings fan. That would have been embarrassing, though I suspect that it was a quieter, nerdier group back before the movies. In other words, it was populated by my people.

I love Science Blogs. I find religious dogmatism fascinating yet terrifying. I think the best and most comprehensive history book I have encountered recently is The Cartoon History of the Universe by Larry Gonick. Truly a work of genius.

I like trashy novels with vampires, dragons and spaceships, but only if the main character is not a painful Mary Sue. Nuff said on that one, though I am still sad that Laurell K Hamilton jumped the crazy shark after book 6. Alas. Go read Patricia Briggs instead, she's terrific.
