I love...

Johnny Wander.
It's a webcomic that has already made a few appearances on this here blog. It's a lovely slice-of-life style comic that is so random yet relatable. The main cast is a bunch of friends fresh out of university who are living together. The comic is the random things that have happened to them.
I have to say that my favorite character is John and his Johnisms. I feel like I'm probably the most like him. Personality-wise that is. I certainly don't tower over anyone.

I also love the t-shirts they have in the store. I seriously want either the PaleontoLOLogy shirt or tote bag.
Plus, I can't get over Conrad's shutter shades. So. Much. Win.

Anyways, you should totally go and read their comic. And perhaps purchase a rockin' tee.

Oh, and just so you know, I scoured through my archive and added tags to my posts. If you think I should add a different tag, or forgot one, feel free to let me know in the comments or at echan1545(at)gmail(dot)com!

So I saw Avatar

And it was awesome. That is all.


You're still here. Fine, I'll give an actual review then. Mostly, I'm just agreeing with critics and with myself from a few posts earlier. The script was lacking, the acting okay. Sam Worthington's American accent was mostly passable, but he slipped into an Australian one about 2/3 of the way through. It's a bit jarring. But the technology used to create the images is amazing. It is a sensory feast. The tiniest details are not overlooked. Tiny images on background computers? Check. Random fauna reacting to the protagonists? Check. And the realism is astounding. For a while, I forgot I was watching a computer generated scene. The only reality check was the fact the Na'vi have tails.

I'm actually kind of excited James Cameron is planning on a sequel. With all of the framework in place, it would be a shame to let it go to waste. But, for the love of all that is good in film, do NOT let him anywhere NEAR the script. He can go nuts with everything and anything else. Just not the script.

This is a 10-year-old girl. She is Miley Cyrus' little sister, Noah. Apparently, she is a hooker. Billy Ray Cyrus officially fails at being a responsible parent. And that shade of lipstick should not be on anyone.

These are sequin shorts. Apparently they are a must-have for 2010. Society will look back on our generation and laugh. *buries face in hands*

That's it. I officially despair for our youth and fashion world.

So, first post of the New Decade! Some musings I had since Christmas...

I'm repeating what everyone is wondering when I ask, what was last decade called? The aughts? I'm leaning towards that one since I think it makes us sound smarter.

Even with a full keyboard to text with, it is still possible to text something you didn't want to, a woe many T9 users have gone through. With fat fingers, it is possible to type "anything" as "anythong." Silly QWERTY.

You know what's awful? Planning a road trip with rest stops, mentally readying oneself for relief, then finding the rest stop you were expecting closed. It is agonizing. You're just ready to go and suddenly must hold it for another 30 miles. Then, fate gives you a final "screw you" by having you run into every red light/delayed green possible.

Finally, I still need to see Avatar. I'll probably post a brief review once I've seen it, but I'll try something new and predict what the review will say.

The story is unoriginal (think Pocahontas in space) and the acting is meh. But the visuals? OMGWTFBBQ! It's worth it to go just to absorb the world that has been created for your entertainment.

We will see...
