Oh no, it's more SWTOR.

Big Ole Spoilers for Jedi Knight end of Act 2, and mention but not spoilers for the Agent story.Collapse )


Gear Nattering. Good if you like numbers, or maybe theorycraft, or English brains working on mathy things. Collapse )


A large storm claims to be brewing. I hear it, but the sky is blue and radar (the meterological tool, not my dog) says to expect the storm at midnight. Hmm. Better TOR while the TORing is good :)

Deleted a lot of people who I have not seen around in 2+ years. If you are one of those people, and you are still around reading my lj, let me know and I'll re-add you.

I made Fred watch Big Eden today. He really liked it, immediately caught onto the theme of community, and felt awful for Dean. I think I'll keep him.
Dear Phantom,

Please come in from the cold.

I'm sorry that I haven't caught you. I'm too dumb for hints and the postmark on the last thing had me chasing my tail.
PHANTHOM, I AM ON TO YOU.

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND AT LEAST TEN OF YOUR USERNAMES,

I WILL GET YOU BACK IN A THANKFUL SORT OF WAY, I SWEAR IT.
SERIOUSLY PEOPLE.

FLIST. LOVELY FLIST. WONDERFUL FLIST FULL OF PEOPLE I LOVE AND WHO LOVE ME.

ARE YOU THE PHANTHOM?

Look, just anon post. I left this public so that you can, and I'll probably get spam, or whatever. I don't care. I just need to know if it's one of you guys or one of, like, not-you-guys. Though I do not know who that could be.

Whoever you are, thank you so very very much and I really will draw you that thank you picture very soon.

THIS IS A MYSTERY THE LIKES OF WHICH I CANNOT TAKE.

I should have been asleep an hour and a half ago but then I went crazy and need your help.

There is this one xkcd comic I want a print of but it's not for sale on the site. This is for a gift so I need it to come out nice. How can I print the web image as nicely as possible? Is my printer my only option? If I take the image file to. Office depot can they make something nicer? Any knowledge you have about this would be amazing. Thanks!

Trying to sleep now...
I promised Lea an in-depth review of Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, and I intend to deliver, but I just want to express my thoughts on what was a big area of concern for me, namely the dedication.

Cut if you don"t want to be spoiledCollapse )
POSSIBLY SOME OF THE MOST EXCITING NEWS I'VE HEARD LATELY.

Christopher Robin and Pooh to be reunited in new sequelCollapse )



I mean, really. That there is some Sheppard-esque art. I'm mildly concerned about adding a new character, but I do love otters. Basically, I NEED THIS BOOK.

Really, though, Amazon sends me notifications for things I looked at ONCE. With all the Pooh stuff I've bought, why did I have to learn this from my newspaper?
Two comments about books.

1. Did you know that S.E. Hinton isn't dead? I really thought that she was! I find this news surprisingly soothing-- she was Nathan's favorite author so it's sorta like learning that something I connected to him is still around. Anyway, I learned this yesterday whilst perusing the library. I found a Hinton book I hadn't read before, and found a publication date of 2004, which shocked me because again with the thinking she was dead. I checked the book out and it looks pretty good. I got a little bit too excited over that Amazon summary-- it said "genre-bending" and I read "gender-bending" but oh well :)


2. I saw that Pat Conroy has a new book out. I joked "Oh God, what war were they in this time?" But then Borders sent me an e-mail pimping the book which contained the following line: Leopold Bloom King, our narrator, is the son of an amiable, loving father who teaches science at the local high school. Let me repeat. An amiable, loving father. Seriously? In a PAT CONROY novel? My expectations are not totally wrong, though-- someone in the protagonist's past does commit suicide, and he's involved in the "60s counterculture" which means Vietnam again. But still, the thing about the father. This is like a John Irving novel in which no one has a bizarre fetish and there aren't any prostitutes.


......I have to stop posting now. My Dad just turned on MSNBC and some woman is claiming that the health care plan is going to turn us in to Russia and violate the Constitution, and now someone is trying to claim that someone is saying that sharing their views is unAmerican and I just...I am either going to scream or sob or slam my head against a wall because I cannot handle this shit.
