Triple miscellany makes a post [Oct. 26th, 2009|12:25 am]
Beemer
Greg streamed several episodes of Sanctuary this afternoon. It wasn't bad, it just.. had a lot of potential that it kept failing to live up to.

The Lily Allen song "The Fear" has the line "I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror". Which is absolutely brilliant once you realize that because the song is about fame and fortune, it's actually "I'll look at The Sun and I'll look in The Mirror".

I went to the gym yesterday and I think I overdid it with the lat pulldowns. And then I went to D&D and we had a fairly hardcore combat session. Thomas joined via skype on my laptop, and it worked pretty well.

This post is about little nothings because if it were about all the big somethings currently inhabiting my todo list, it would get in the way of me not thinking about it. Which I kinda need to (not) do right now, because there's enough of it to make me all cranky & contrarian.

...What's Sanctuary?

*feels distant. Alone. Disconnected.

I was browsing the Netflix streaming stuff and it looked interesting. I was fooled.

I'm told it's a haven for mutations and pariah, not unlike X-men, but minus the superpowers. It's also very preachy, and wasn't terribly good. So says Greg.

Egad! You've forgotten how to search...

I found it unwatchable. It felt like X-Men meets SG:Atlantis, but not quite. And not as good as that should be.

Re: Egad! You've forgotten how to search...

I haven't forgotten how to search! I was playing on recent events where *certain people* were hiding information from me in order to protect me from stress. That, and mid-terms arose, so I simply forgot to do so.

Oh, and from what I understand, Greg completely agrees with you on your assessment.
