Writers on Writing

Say it ain’t so!

Oh, but it is my friends. Yes, as a special treat to help make up for putting off Ep4 for so long, Episode 5 of Dreamfall is now available, a mere three days after I posted the last one! Cool, huh? 🙂

I also have some other fun things to share…

A funny YouTube video guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of any Star Trek or Monty Python fan.

And another interesting video for the writers out there…I think I want to be like him when I grow up. (NSFW)

Also, is this not the coolest sounding game? Almost makes me want to buy a PS3. (Almost.)

Finally, I suggest this podcast for anyone who wants to get in shape, or who needs a way to stretch out all the aches and pains of a physical job. (Such as cashiering) It’s done wonders for me, and I’ve only been watching for the past three weeks or so. (I love my shiny new iPod with it’s video capabilities, oh yes I do)

Also, I saw Hellboy 2: The Golden Army this past Sunday. (three cheers for having a short shift at work on a Sunday! w00t) Condensed verdict is that I really liked it, though there are a couple of things that bothered me. One I can’t tell you about because it’s a spoiler. The other is that Abe Sapien is no longer voiced by David Hyde Pierce! This makes me very unhappy. No offense to the new guy, but it really took away something from the character, at least in my opinion. He wasn’t nearly as funny or sharp-witted as before. Instead he ended up being kind of bland and neutral, which is a shame, because Abe is probably my favorite character after Hellboy himself. But it was still a good movie.

That said, I can tell I’ve been spoiled by the hi-def plasma TV screen my mom bought for the family last month. When I got to the theater I couldn’t help but notice how blurry and grainy the picture was, (which KILLED me because the graphics/costumes/etc. were SO EFFING COOL) and the sound was up so loud it was truly painful during action sequences. I can’t wait for Hellboy 2 to come out on DVD so I can watch it at home and get all the gorgeous detail I missed in the theaters. From now on I don’t think I’m going to bother seeing movies in an actual theater, unless it’s so I can go out with friends. Everything looks better at home. (It’s cheaper, too, and you don’t have to put up with all those other people in order to watch your movie, even though the crowd at Hellboy was pretty well behaved.)


Have a good day, everybody! =D
