And I beg your pardon for it. I hate that I haven't had a chance to blog. I like blogging. I miss blogging! I want to blog every day! (Actually no, I think that's kind of overkill.) I want to blog every other day! Three times a week!
At the very least, I WANT TO BLOG MORE THAN EVERY TWO WEEKS, OKAY!!?
I worked very hard to get my followers. (all eighty-six of you. I love you guys. :) And I don't want to lose any of you-- and I'd really like more. (because, does it matter that I have fourscore? No, I must have many.)
So, I'm going to work to get more than one post out a week. *Winces, because that's hard to do right now.*
I haven't done a Random Facts post in a while, which is sad, because I like Random Facts posts.
Le Six Random Facts:
1.) I still have not seen Unbroken, and this is a source of extreme sorrow for this little potato. Because it's WWII. And I don't know what it is about World War Two, but it makes me all thrilled inside. You know, people in that time frame were so cool. I've read books written by guys in that time frame, and all of them leave me feeling like "Wow, I need to be a better person."
*Movie set during WWII? Must watch.
*Movie set during WWII with a nice guy stuck in an evil POW camp? Bring it.
*Movie set during WWII with a nice guy stuck in an evil POW camp and still managing to be a hero and not dying and shoving through? Why haven't I seen it yet. What is wrong with me? What is life?
I'm probably going to go watch it this weekend, because the trailer made me cry, and I am a sucker for pain and anguish.
2.) Speaking of going to the movies, several of my sisters* and a couple of epic girls** decided to get together and go see Into the Woods.
*Kat, Bella, and Tiny
**THEY'RE AS GEEKY AND WEIRD AS WE ARE. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE??
It is so good! It's so dumb! There was a random part near the end that didn't need to be there and left me somewhat disgruntled..... but other than that?
The music was really good, everyone had nice voices! (That never happens.) I quite liked all the characters, I was really impressed with how they meshed all those different fairy tales into one plot that worked, and didn't make me go, "Wow they tried way too hard."
The Baker and his wife were freaking adorable together.
Jack was a good little actor. (He was good as Gavroche in Les Mis too.)
I find it amusing and a little grouchifying that Chris Pine acted more like Kirk in this movie than he ever did in Star Trek. Like, if he had just overacted in Star Trek, I would be way more into the movies.)
And I'm not going to lie, the Agony song had me cackling like a buffoon. It was absurd! It was over the top! They gamboled around atop a waterfall and sang passionately and it was my favorite song of the whole movie.
But it's so applicable to fandoms.
Someone died? Sing the chorus of Agony.
Your OTP broke up? Sing the chorus of Agony.
Mid-season finale? Sing the chorus of Agony.
Dean's being affected by the Mark of Cain? Sing Agony.
Seriously. Best. Song. Ever.
So yes, aside from that one part near the end, I would say this movie got an A from me. :)
3.) I think, starting February 1st, I'm going to start drawing every single day. Even if it's just a sketch, even if it's rubbish. I shall draw it. And I shall post it. And it will be amazing.
4.) I finished Flashpoint! And oh my gosh, I need to review it. Because it's so good! The plots are fabulous, I adored all the characters, even the girl. I flipped out over back stories and character development, and cried frequently.
And on top of that, it's like the cleanest newer show I've ever seen. I think in all five seasons, there was maybe one kissing scene. Like. HAI IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE ROMANCE WITHOUT TAKING IT TO THE BEDROOM EVERY EPISODE. (Teen Wolf, take notes)
5.) I'm working on a project. It's an exciting project for me. I'm drawing all the My Little Ponies-- but here's the giant twist-- I'm drawing them, as humans. LIKE LA! I've never done anything like that before, and I won't lie, it's fun to figure out how these ponies would look if they weren't ponies.
I'm currently working on Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Pie is super fun.
No, seriously. I'm drinking out of MLP glasses and stuff to get into the spirity of things. We're gonna have a good time.
Y'all should be excited.
6.) In the spirit of my new resolution to get my act together and blog again, I need to think of more post ideas, because after a while, my life gets boring, so I'm going to stick a poll here and let you guys vote. (Because I value your opinions and I need a bit of a kick in the pants to get me out and about to find WiFi to steal.)
And that, mein minions, is all I can do with this post right now.
I'm really grouchy with how long it's been since I posted. I don't want to become one of those annoying bloggers who posts like twice a year and expects comments.
SO PLEASE VOTE and all that jazz. (And if there's a different sort of post you want to see from me, LET ME KNOW!)
Cheers and God bless!
