I have come into a lot of free time lately for bizarre reasons relating to work imploding on my face, so I ended up watching Venture Bros up till the S4 finale in one go. Holy crap. Between this, Adventure Time, MLP, and Sym-Bionic Titan, I really hate Canadian cable for not getting the license to broadcast them (yet?). My sister did buy me the first season of VB though, so I guess it's fair that I can least get those here. Still, deconstruction of genres is basically one of my favourite themes in just about any media, and there's so much love leaking out this cartoon too, and the voice work hnnnnngh. Would that last season count as a reconstruction? I really should have watched it sporadically though, because I'm in that weird buzz state where I need to consume all information related to a series I just finished, and I must talk to someone about it even it means reviving old dead forum posts or bothering meatspace wizards into watching it so I can demand, "OMG this thing entertained me. Now that you watched it, validate my strong feelings for it."

Also got these new contacts. Why the crap didn't I ever consider wearing them before until now? Aside from my beady eyes being noticeable for being beady, it's kinda cool to not have to push up a pair of frames when I need to look up and stare at the sun shit in the sky. Just got to remember to put some eyeliner on so my eyes don't look so small; my hipster frames cheated that for me most of the time.

I exchanged my graveyard shifts for graveyard easia 101 readings where I hunch over a monitor in the dark. Some of these pdf's are 40 pages long and we're expected to print these out every now and then for "discussion sessions." I think I'll just get a netbook to cut the cost of a new printer and ink.

Dumping a few doodles I found while organizing some folders. Not sure whether to crosspost any of this to communties or dA, or just leave in a scrap pile on my hard drive. There were also quite a few other things, but they look too unfinished to bother at the moment. Like. Unfinisheder in comparison.

For $750, it's decent. Though I do wish I'd known about this computer when it on was sale for fifty bucks less last week.

Specs... )

It's going to take a while to get used to the Windows 7 interface, as will adapting to a multilingual keyboard. The latter is mildly annoying—I keep smashing a "/" when I'm reaching for the left-shift key. Who knows, maybe I'll wake up with the urge to type in French accents or something.

Currently I'm just putting a bunch of art folders, work/school folders, and installers from this computer onto an external hard drive to transfer to the new computer. Are there any "must-haves," software-wise, that I should grab/download? Like, a good registry cleanup tool, webcam tool, or some such? Anything, really.

My little sister came back from Long Beach today. She was barely gone for four days, and I really didn't notice her absence to be honest, but I'm glad she's here to kick me into gear every now and then. I tend to fall into pits of despair, self pity, and irresponsibility quite easily without a dork like her to keep me in check.

And she bought me some sweater and jacket combos, most likely from Target. Actually, I don't know where she bought them. She was smart enough to remove the tags. I want to believe they're from Target so I don't have to think she spent too much on me... They're too nice. I should thank her properly for them rather than being a dick and telling her she doesn't seem Canadian too me anymore).

Also, LOST, holy crap. I didn't think I'd be so worked up about the smoke monster that I actually hate it right now. Guess Locke was actually one of my favourite characters on the show. The first four seasons are on sale everywhere, so I'll have to pick them up this week and attempt a marathon of it with the family soon. I could certainly do with less of Dad's, "I don't understand this, explain it to me right now during this dialogue scene I'm missing and will be asking about later during another dialogue scene." Plus, he likes marathoning TV shows apparently. We did that for the first season of Heroes, and I think it's the only reason he got into that show as well. I love our TV time together.

On another note, sensing my dismay over trivial and manageable things, a close friend of mine, my wallet, and the postal system decided to deliver a couple things I've been expecting for quite some time. First splurge of the school year too.

Entertainment Haul
  • A set of tarot cards with artwork based on Neil Gaiman's work. Technically a Christian, and divination-type materials are to be out of the question. But I'm also a fail!Christian most of the time...

  • "The Walking Dead" graphic novels #1-5. This actually made my day, considering the single issues I own are all over the place in awkward order. Continuity GET!

  • A copy of Interstella 5555. I've been meaning to own this ever since I first watched it on Youtube. Something about the retro character designs, "Han Solo," and Daft Punk makes this one of my favourite movies. May watch it over the weekend.

  • Tales of Eternia(UK) for the PSP. I think I'll always hold the thought that Namco has some unknown grudge against North America. Seemed like a title one shouldn't have to import.


That aside, I only wish I actually had the free time to read/watch/play these items. Silly Priorities, why do you need to exist :(
