Just a Quiz Before I Go

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 Tr…

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 psyc…

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&qu…

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 certain…

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!!!

This may sum things up quite nicely:

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…

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...

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::)

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.

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 …

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 moment…

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 Sla…

My Modern Publishing class was alright. We had our fifth guest speaker who showed us the ins and outs of book design. While this wasn't the most boring of topics, it wasn't as fun as it might sound. She focused too much on children's books for my tastes. Oh well.

Charmed was very good last night. The best part was Wyatt scaring away Mommy's dates. That eye thing was awesome. Does that mean he can orb objects or people with eye beams? I would love to see that. 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.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sundays exist do they not?
