Just a Quiz Before I Go

HASH(0x83d30dc)
Your soul is bound to the Rose Petals: The
Wronged.

"'ve come undone and all hopes of mending
me are gone because the pain took my soul.
Can't you see? The only one who can put me
back together again is me."


The Rose Petals are associated with sorrow,
reflection, and wisdom. They are governed by
the goddess Persephone and their sign is The
Teardrop, or Broken Love.

As a Rose Petal, you are always self-reflective and
may be hard on yourself. You probably have
been hurt in the past by other people and can
sometimes distance yourself, as a result. You
don't usually let other get too close to you,
but you are very good at mending your spirits
back together by yourself.

Sunday TV Recap

I like the way this works. I bitch about something on here and the problem is corrected. I had complained this weekend that Enterprise was not shown and then I come across it at 5:45pm yesterday evening. Overall, I was very impressed with the writing and acting of this episode. I'm not entirely sure of T'Pol's motives for kissing Sim. (It could have been nothing. If you blinked you missed it.) Will this lead to a love triangle between Archer, T'Pol and Trip? That might be fun. Yeah, it was kind of done with Worf, Troi, and Riker but Riker and Worf were not really good friends. Trip and Archer are. The other possible explanation of the kiss is that she was making a man who was marked for death happy. Maybe I'll try that...Archer showed in this episode concern for his friend but didn't totally abandon his determination to complete the mission. In that scene where Sim wanted to fly one of the shuttles, I was honestly thinking, "Do you want to deny Travis a chance to do something in this episode?" forgetting that they were referring to Malcolm. Silly me...

Secrets were revealed, to the audience anyway, about Chris. Honestly, stopping Wyatt from turning evil is the most unoriginal thing I can think of. Questions still remain and, frankly more questions are added.

One: If I was any of them, I'd beat the answers out of Chris. They've never been satisfied with that before and Leo certainly shouldn't accept the status quo since he's been riding Chris's ass all season.

Two: He's half-witch? Please explain this. Would this explain why he and Bianca are the only two in the freaking world who want to stop Wyatt?

Three: Are we supposed to believe that the "all my life" comment can be explained because he hung out at a Halliwell museum? That's like me saying there were three bullets fired in the JFK assassination because I saw it on the news. What I'm saying is, that explanation is a load of shit. The answer to number two might provide a better explanation. We did learn a couple interesting things in that scene though: the demon that killed Prue returns to kill them even though I could swear they vanquished him. We also learn that the world finds out about them.

Was it just me or was the first part of Alias better than the second part? The break in at the FEMA office was great. Having Vaughn, Jack, and Sloane working together was sweet. It reminded me of Ocean's 11. Frankly, I thought the jail break itself was anticlimactic. More of Richard Roundtree! (I'm talking about Shaft!) What exactly did he mean about "getting the old gang back together?" Was he CIA or SD-6? It's not terribly important but I'm curious. Hmm Lauren helping to break her husband's woman out. Interesting...If the US military, the DOJ or whatever condone psychological torture as was displayed here, the Bush administration needs to be taken down as much as Saddam.

Saturday TV Recap

I basically covered two-thirds of his last night since Enterprise wasn't on and I already said all I can about the episode of He-man last night except I am curious what the Snake Men's plan is. (It's only a half hour show!)

I enjoyed last night's Justice League almost as much as I enjoyed this week's episode of Angel. Who knew a cartoon could do that? When the team split up, my common sense that they'd get back together at the end of the episode was totally forgoten and even when they did, there still was uneasiness in the air. Again, Hawkgirl practically beat GL over the head with the fact she's interested in him and he still doesn't seem to get it. Not surprisingly, it was Batman and Superman that were the first to leave. Batman has always been a loner and Superman can be very hot tempered; sometimes more so than Hawkgirl.

The Secret Society was made up of some interesting characters. I love Clayface and, as stupid as a talking gorilla with psychic powers sounds on paper, Grod is pretty cool. Sinestro was an interesting addition as well. I do have comments about a couple of the other members though. To me, although his powers were cool, Parasite looked like a purple Amazo. In fact, I thought he was at first. Another mistaken indentity was Giganta. When she appeared in the teaser, I thought she was Barbara Gordon. It didn't help that their base was Batcave-ish. I'm a little surprised on their planning in taking the League down. Capturing Flash and Batman seperately, were good steps but why did they lure Superman, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, and Hawkgirl all to the same place? I mean I know they had only an hour to do everything but why would they split them up only to bring them to together again? Deuce, I think, will be especially intrigued that it was revealed in the episode that Morgan Edge was keeping Clayface in a hazardous waste drum as a collector's item. Those of you who've been watching Smallville know he's a gangster that plotted with Lionel to have Lex's grandparents killed.

Musings of a Quiet Geek

Tonight, this blog will live up to it's title. The following is random comments I have about many topics.

One: Why are the stars of The Invisible Man, and I'm not referring to the two hot women from that show, on Las Vegas right now? And why is this show on right now anyway?

Two: Hillary Duff on American Dreams? Here I was thinking the worst casting was Third Eye Blind as the Kinks but I'm afraid I could be wrong...

Three: limp bizkit's cover of the Who classic "Behind Blue Eyes" is not bad but they don't have the best part of the song where it says, among other things, "If I swallow anything evil, stick your finger down my throat ..." I do find it funny though Fred Durst directs the video in which he makes out with Halle Berry. (Cut! Let's try it again but, this time, let's have more tongue...)

Four: While we are discussing horrible covers of classic rock tunes, I must say Kid Rock's version of "Feel Like Making Love" is horribly disappointing. It's really a song he should do well but, for some reason, he's made it more country that than it should be which I find incredibly odd.

Five: Why the hell didn't they show Enterprise tonight? Smallville gets better ratings so I can't be the only one who takes advantage of the repeat showing of Enterprise. I mean why else is there a repeat showing if they don't think anyone will watch it?

Six: Would you like me to add the new He-man show to my Saturday Recap? Tonight we learned three things that were never part of the original cartoon that I remember from my youth: How Evil Lynn and "Keldor" met as well as that Hordak turned Keldor into Skeletor to save his life...We also learned that Trap Jaw didn't always have a trap jaw... With the appearance of Hordak on the show could the redo of She-ra be far behind? Hmm I would love to see a redo of Shadow Weaver, a totally awesome character anyway...Let me know before next Saturday if you want me to include it. I may anyway.

Seven: Why the hell is Eloise at the Plaza still on at 9:42pm? Parenting has gone out the window if children young enough to give a shit about this movie are still up.

Eight: Neither Andromeda and Teen Titans sucked this evening. With the latter show, it was a fluke, I'm sure but, is Andromeda finally starting to get back to where it used to be? This is the second episode in a row that hasn't made me want to induce vomiting. About a year after they end the show, it might be as good as it was in season one...

And there you have what's going on in my mind. The two readers I had apparently stopped reading this judging by the lack of tagging but if you stumbled here by accident, tag your comments and take time from your busy life of work, sexual relations either with yourself or someone else, and whatever else is keeping you away, and check out my writings.

Let's Call This Post... Wednesday TV Recap!

Smallville was infinitely better than last week's rather unoriginal FOW plot. While it's certainly no surprise that Lionel had his parents killed and is secretly trying to keep Lex from exposing this secret, this episode gives us a glimpse into Lex himself. If you grew up in this environment, you too might become a supervilain although I am curious what will ultimatelty turn him against Superman. Could that fight at the end of the episode lead to that? Hmm. Lana's statement at the end of the episode about maybe hanging with Clark will get her killed was a step the writers needed to take but I was afraid they wouldn't. They need to keep her from learning the secret for at least another few months and Lana and Clark were getting way too close.

It's been like 20 hours since last night's Angel and I only just stopped drooling. That episode rocked so freaking hard. Obviously, Eve or least that guy she's "massaging her neck" with is certainly behind everything not just in tonight's episode but in last week's as well given the fact they needed to get Wesley out of the way to have their guy to do the translation. Poor Angel. Having Spike beat him in a fight certainly doesn't help the ego and now some mysterious guy wants him dead and is using Spike to do it. Apparently, the Senior Partners aren't involved but was Gunn going off on Eve more related to them then whatever else is going on? Eve herself pointed out he has more of a relationship with "the cat" than she does. Damn this episode was good!

I wonder if a professional can tell me why I'm always a woman on these things but I really don't have the time.

I know I said in the first post, all the way back in mid-September, that I didn't care if anybody actually read this blog or not but I'm feeling really unloved like the 26 year old "uber virgin" I am and no, it isn't just that no one is reading the blog. It's also that no one is reading my writings, really asks me to go anywhere, to do anything. Even my parents don't seem to care what I'm doing except to bitch because I'm not eating breakfast. Why am I even bothering to bitch about this here since, as I said, NO ONE GIVES TWO SHITS!!!

Charmed I'm Sure

Today's post will contain more than the usual stuff mainly because Alias was not on last night. I'm including personal news as well which, is course, what people do on these things I suppose.

Charmed I will label "good" but perhaps that is not as accurate as it should be. The main plot with the most original "Beauty and the Beast" twist I can think of, was very good. I was disappointed by Leo's attitude although maybe it was just the "protective father" angle which is understandable. I would have liked more of this plot and less of the other two plots especially the Phoebe plot. I know they have to have yawners, i mean romantic interludes, like that on an Aaron Spelling show but that was just boring. To be clear, I had no problem with Phoebe and Cole, in the beginning anyway, this Richard and Paige thing has potential and the continuing saga of Piper and Leo is an intriguing storyline. Is my problem with Jason the fact he has no magical powers? Hmm. The subplot with Darryl getting super powers could have been expanded to fill it's own episode. "No, I will not let you take my powers away!" Yes, it's been done but they opened the door...

I registered for Spring semester this morning. I'm in all the classes I wanted. Mondays will be busy. I may be getting a job next semester as well, I'll keep you posted.

I also found out my grade in the Online Information Services class. I passed!!!! WOO HOO!!! I can't tell you how much I worried about that class. One or two of you may be aware of my pain when you weren't wrapped up in your own shit. (Death in the family and stressful jobs are understandable so don't bite my head off.)

Saturday TV Recap

If I had to give last night's episode of Enterprise a grade, it would be B+. Overall, the episode really tried to be TNG, but it didn't quite make it. The writers correctly made the reason the humans were there not the Preservers since no one knew about their existence until "The Paradise Syndrome" but "enslaving the slavers" is a rather dull plot considering. The opening teaser really wasn't that good. After watching it, I was like "So freaking what?" Though I hate saying this, there needed to be more scenes with Trip in the town. He seemed to fit in so nicely. I think they should have played that up. And more of T'Pol on the planet for the opposite reason. That pulse rifle the MACO had was cool but it might have been nice for them to show why they don't have anything like that in the 23rd century. Did Travis appear in the episode at all, for even five minutes? Kill him and have Porthos fly the ship...

Now since I've gotten no comments about it from either of my readers, no one watches Justice League but I will discuss it anyway. Last night's episode was much better than the week before. Hawkgirl and Green Lantern make a great couple if they both like to rip into Aquaman. I was uncertain where they were going with it at times especially the parts where Dr. Fate's magic was compatable with Thanagarian magic Hawkgirl possessed. Readers of the Hawkman comic know that Hawkgirl is Fate's mother. Not suprisingly, they didn't go in that direction as the X-men movies haven't made any connections between Mystique and Nightcrawler aside from the fact they're wearing the same make-up! (They haven't even connected Rogue and Mystique!) Again, we have a villain and not the hero the villain goes with. As far as I know, Solomon Grundy is a Flash villain but the Scarlet Speedster was not in the episode. (Considering he was the star of last week's I'm not complaining.) The other time they did it, it was actually a Static Shock episode with members of the League in it. Brainiac was the villain but, oddly, Superman wasn't in the episode. I'm not saying this a bad thing but it's odd. Since none of you watch the show, I will give away a spoiler. They killed off Grundy which means that if they don't have the Joker appear again, poor Mark Hamill will be out of work...

Out to Lunch

My parents called me this morning to tell me they were coming up here to Boston to take me out for lunch. We went to Durgin Park at Government Center. (Right near Quincy Market.) I had the "Poor Man's Roast Beef." It was a thicker slab of beef than I was expecting. It also came with mashed potato and mixed vegetables. I had a big bowl of Indian Pudding for dessert. That was damn good although perhaps not Herbal Essence good...I splattered au jus from the beef on my shirt.

Short and Sweet or Maybe Not...

Last night's Smallville was a disappointment. "Freak of the Week" (a term even they use) stories just don't get it done for me any more. With that in mind, the episode was good for what it was. I don't picture myself blasting Pink, least of all that song, while being on the run but... Because of the rod in my spine I was told I can never have another MRI. If thats what will happen if I do, I want one now. Messing with a woman's electrical impulses to affect her emotions may be the only way I'm ever going to get any especially with a hot chick... I don't particualrly enjoy Clark's "I'm afraid you'll die if you stay with me but I don't want to see you with another guy anyway" attitude but we must remember he is a teen male and thats what they do. (I never did of course...::looks around suspiciously::)

Angel was very good last night. Spike rocked. When Wesley's father said his son was "Head Boy" I was surpised at the time Spike said nothing. "Want me to have the report written up?" I've wondered on occassion how Watchers were appointed or named. One way apparently is that it runs in the family. Neat. I'm not sure if I'd shoot my father if he was harming a woman I was interested in or not. Definitely not more than once. Then again, if one bullet didn't stop him most likely he isn't my father... It is certainly something to think about. What are these things up to anyway? I wouldn't be surprised if they returned at some point.

Retraction

I would like to apologize for the misunderstanding I related today here on this site. It was indeed a misunderstanding. They did go to the same showing of the movie I did but left the dorm later I guess. Again, I apologize.

If This is Just an Illusion, Please End it Now...

This is the result of the second time I've taken this quiz. The first time I was the Twins, not having seen the second film, I have no idea who they are. This result I know and I must say I am a bit surprised:

I saw the third film this afternoon. I was planning to go with "friends" but they apparently went to the 12:30 and decided not, or just forgot to, tell me after inviting me not once, but twice, yesterday if I wanted to go. This is the second time in as many days these ladies have irritated me. Actually, you could say it was just one big irritation. Last night, they asked me if I wanted to go see They Might Be Giants in concert. I mentioned that I didn't hate the band. And then, when the time came, they acted like they never invited me at all. While both incidents could be just some huge misunderstanding, I still feel like shit about it.

Anyway, eventhough I hadn't seen the second movie, I thought this movie was very good. OK, there were some characters in the movie who I didn't really know but that didn't seem important to understanding the movie so if you never got a chance to see the second movie, I don't think you'd be that confused.

I don't want to give anything away about the movie itself except to say it was really good and that it was perhaps even better than the first film but I will comment on the people seated around me. I was like twenty minutes early and, for the most part, only the really good seats were taken. Because of the stadium seating, my view was fine but there wasn't a lot of elbow room. To add to that, there was this kid behind me who was definitely under 17 and probably even under 7 who would not shut up! "What are the Oracle's eyes?" I'm a very calm collected person as many of you know but I was seriously tempted to tell the kid off. Ah well...

Sunday TV Recap

Last night's Charmed was probably one of the best episodes of the season. Wyatt already rocks and now it turns out he's the true weilder of Excalibur? That rocks even harder. Holly Marie Combs is the best actress on a Aaron Spelling series ever. (My apologies to Catherine Hicks and Jenny Garth.) She actually conveyed successfully how the sword's power was controlling her. I was disapppointed Lady Vader was not on IM last night. Being the King Arthur expert that she is, I would have liked to hear her thoughts on how King Arthur, the sword and the Lady of Lake is real but not Merlin or anything else aparently. Convienent that Chris was loaded up with other things to do. I think the writers were afraid that if they had him in the episode they'd be forced to reveal a secret or two. This development with Wyatt lends credence to Chris being after Wyatt before he becomes completely invulnerable to attack. Of course, that "all my life" comment he made a few episodes ago still is a mystery. For once this season, Phoebe didn't completely piss me off although her attitude towards Richard may have been a little hypocritical since they were the same comments Prue made about Cole. Then again, we all know how that turned out...

Alias wasn't as good as last week but was again memorable. Surprise, surprise. Vaughn's marriage probably won't last. It's never good when your wife messes with your woman. And Lauren had to be told straight out that Julia and Sydney are the same person! (I'm stil not convinced they are but ok...) Sydney was in that apartment in Rome but what does this tell us? Where is her mother anyway? There was one key thing I got out of that meeting with Sloane in the conference room. He knows how to get Marshall to shut up.

Random comments: If Britney Spears can actually sing as she did as a young girl, why the hell doesn't she? Wouldn't she get more respect?

Saturday TV Recap

It's been said elsewhere but I agree that the episodes of Star Trek where you glimpse an alternate timeline are among the franchise's best. "The Visitor" and "Yesterday's Enterprise" to give good examples of this. "Twilight" was not an exception to the rule. The episode totally rocked and most aspects that viewers might find questionable were erased when the timeline was erased. By "aspects" I am refering to the apperence of the Yridian. (Then again, first contact with that species hasn't been established as far as I can remember so...) and the use of Ceti Alpha V: the whole point of Kirk putting Khan and his people there was because it was borderline uninhabitable. As I said, this nitpick was erased when the timeline was so there's no problem. I have two comments that weren't erased. First, T'Pol must have been in great pain when that thing fell on her leg for her to show it as she did. Spock had these moments and, if I thought about it, Tuvok must have. Second comment: Is Hoshi an Immortal? Future Hoshi didn't seem to age at all and looked even hotter than usual to me. Maybe they should give her trench coat and a sword and play Queen when she enters a scene...Some may bitch about them trying to get T'Pol and Archer together but I don't have a problem with this. Spock frequently denied he had any feelings (of freindship people!) for Kirk and McCoy but clearly did. This can be chalked up to that with the modern tv twist that a man and a woman can't just be friends. If they do have a relationship, I think it would be cool to have a connection to someone like Saavik or Valeris but maybe that's just me. Hear that, Paramount spies? Try and use that and not pay me...

I hadn't been able to watch Justice League in awhile so I was looking forward to it last night. While it had it's moments, overall, I was unimpressed. I know what you're thinking, this is a cartoon, it shouldn't impress a 26 year old man but in a episode a few weeks ago, a princess actually said, "I want to go out with a bang. Several in fact." If a kid, that's up at 10 on a Saturday night, understands that joke children are a hell of a lot smarter than I was. Admittedly, "geared to children" is the problem I have with the Teen Titans cartoon . What the hell where they thinking shutting out adults with that decision? It's adults that buy shit. Anyway, I digress, pertaining to last night's episode, they missed an opportunity to do a lot with a brainwashed Diana and didn't even explain how J'onn had the purple diamond only to have Green Lantern end up with it. Flash is probably my least favorite character so centering the show around him did nothing for me. Admittedly, I love his interaction with Batman, GL, and the women but, by himself, I could care less. The episode also didn't really explain who these prehistoric snake people were either. One final complaint: hasn't the asshole talk show host angle been done before?

This moring, I finally saw the Stargate SG-1 episode "Shadow Play" with Dean Stockwell as a schizophrenic (I almost spelled that correctly the first time!) Kelownan scientist. The episode wasn't outstanding but was pretty good. I really wonder what I was doing instead of watching it. It was a season 6 episode so it was not this past July but the year before. My family usually goes on vacation that week so we might have been in that same cabin we were in this past July. Hmm.

Wednesday TV Recap

Smallville was interesting. Comic books have never deal with Jor-el really. What was he like as a teenager? What was his father like? It would be an easy task to aim a starship torwards Earth specifically towards Smallville even so it's entirely possible he sent his son somewhere where he knew he'd be safe. This hasn't been contradicted in any comic I've ever read and is kind of cool actually. The fact that there is that Native American connection suggests to me that "Joe's" visit to Smallville wasn't by coincidence either. One thng I'm unclear about is, Jor-el flies yet Clark still hasn't figured it out yet. (Or at least knows he has.) Is this kid an idiot or what? And what about this revelation Lex's grandparents were murdered? Why should we care?

When I first started watching last night's episode of Angel, I was rather amazed on how simplistically stupid it was. Then I realized what it reminded me of: Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Angel has always been a more dark series that it's originator. This episode brought it back to it's roots. With Buffy now done, they really tried hard with this episode to give those fans something to watch. They did add they're own touches, however, when Angel kept commenting on why they wore their masks all the time for instance. This would have deliberartely ignored on Buffy. Everyone, including the writers at the time I'm sure, assumed the Shanshu prophecy was refering to Angel since Spike didn't have a soul at the time. But what if it refers to Spike instead? Hmmm. It was a nice touch for Angel to refer to the "The Father Will Eat the Son" prophecy forgetting only he, and Eve I guess, remembers Connor's existance.

The subplot with Phoebe was lame and unneeded. As a producer, I think Alyssa, who's been bashed on this blog a lot lately must have seen the script and bitched she had nothing to do. The main plot with Paige was all right. She's going to be seriously hurt if she continues down this "setting out on her own" road she's on but there is potential for good story here so I hope they continue it. While I loved the banter between Leo and Chris in the time travel subplot, I'm not entirely sure of why it was there. We didn't learn much in terms of who Chris is and why he's really there. I would have liked to know more on this front.

Last week, I commented that there haven't been memorable episodes of Alias. This week was very memorable. Ok, yes this is sweeps so they had to have a memorable episode or they'd be cancelled quickly but still. The return of Allison. She must know something about Sydney's missing two years since she was there in the beginning. While he has every right to want Allison dead, the way Dixon ordered Sydney to kill her bothered me. There was something about it that seemed out of place. The whole Julia thing seems to have ruined my drugged up halcination theory but then scenes like that happen. I love having Sydney has Sloane's handler. ("What if they discover the wire?" "Then I get to listen to you die.") Another thing I loved about this episode was Marshall. I loved his song and comment about IHOP was very amusing. One thing I don't understand is, why does it take a whole other episode for Lauren to to discover the voice is Sydney's when it's completely obvious to me? Is she the new version of Aunt Harriet?

I watched the last hour of CBS's 75th Anniversary Special. Why did Shatner host the Sci-Fi segment? Everybody who cares knows CBS turned down Star Trek in favor of Lost in Space, which they did show a clip of, of course. Ok, yes, they showed the episode of the Twilight Zone that Shatner was on but I think they could have found someone else to do that segment anyway. Another question I have is why Mission: Impossible was included in that segment? I don't really consider it sci-fi although it is true that all the fans of Alias I know are fans to some degree of science fiction shows yet Alias does add a little more sci-fi to it than other spy shows. What's your opinions?

Warning! Post Contains Strong Language.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sundays exist do they not? Of course they do and, for many, Sundays are the only day they have time to get things done so even if mail isn't delivered on Sunday which I have no problem allowing postal workers the day off but you should still be able to pick up a package that arrived late Saturday when you were at school function on the other end of the fucking state especially if said package contains needed medicine or perhaps perishable food items.

Ok maybe thats not a big deal to any one but me but here's another thing destroying the good mood I was in only yesterday. Again, maybe this is just me but why the fuck isn't there a change machine or machine to put money on your card on the residence campus where people actually are on a fucking Sunday as a opposed to the main campus where it's all fucking locked up so if your card key doesn't work you have to hope that someone cares enough to open the fucking door for you, or in my case today, someojne they do care about is also trying to get in. The machine to put money on my card is broken (Why the hell is there only one of these on either campus?) I found a change machine but it wouldn't take my dollar bills for no apparent reason. To get my fucking laundry done I had to get change from my RA who miraculously was in her room but that that's a post for another time.

Overall the two Halloween parties I went to over the weekend were good. The first one was in the dorm and was in the top three of school sanctioned activites in terms of fun. (Thats in my whole school career not just here at Simmons.) The scavenger hunt in the different undergrad dorms was a little lame but instead of finding the items I was supposed to find I did find a dime and, while walking down an undergrad corridor, I did overhear, "There's a guy on our floor. He's cute." Alas, I don't even remember what they look like. It was fun hanging and drinking with my dormmates. Case in point, two were discussing how one met this guy who shared her obsession with King Arthur and I thought she said BEA Arthur and was like why would any one have an obssession with her? It was hilarious. I spilled coconut rum on my pants so you know it had to be a good time.

The GSLIS party at the dean's house last night was pretty good but was really more of a function than a party complete with real food and no tunes. The East/West connection didn't really happen. I didn't think it would. What I mean is the two campuses stayed apart from eachother for the most part. I was even part of the West campus for awhile but only one of my former classmates decided to talk with me. Eh.

Time to check my laundry...
