Back to Nerdliness!

Okay, after my procrastinative blog yesterday, let's think about what random nerdliness I've gotten myself into.

I keep trying to finish the Tower of Druaga but I watch the next episode and I've forgotten what's happened in the previous episodes and it's just really not making a lasting impression on me. I know my friend is in total love with the show, but I don't see it. Not yet. Maybe the ending is epic or something. We'll see. I've got 4 or 5 to go.

 What else... I watched the newest movie remake of The Portrait of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde simply called 'Dorian Grey.' It was definitely interesting I guess. I haven't read the novel yet but it's been on my to-read list since we read its prologue in my Modern Literature class. So much Walter Pater [in both] it was fabulous. Don't get it? Look it up. But yeah, Ben Barnes just isn't attractive to me. Not like ShadyVox. HAHA. Yeah. It was okay. Colin Firth was lovely to see. As always.

 Also, I've been keeping up with the Crunchyroll shows Kore wa Zomie desu ka and Level E. Both equally but uniquely entertaining. Zombie at times has far too much fanservice and creepy pedo moments, but any boy going through a Magical Girl Transformation is good with me. And the stronger he gets, the cuter is Magical Girl outfit becomes. Totally worth the ridiculously huge boobs on random characters. Level E, on the other hand, always seems to end in a completely different direction than it started and not in an irritating WTF kind of way. I didn't watch any CR shows last season and I'm glad I picked these two up. Definitely worth watching. [Even if Level E's subtitles are horrendous and ugly.]

...Still watching Doctor Who. Finally made it to season 3. And as I read the episode descriptions, the only one I haven't seen is the first one where the Doctor actually meets Martha. But when I stop to think about, the episodes with Martha don't stand out to me at all. I don't understand Bryan's sheer hatred of Rose. Her ending make me tear up and cry a bit. It was sad, albeit confusing at times. I mean, Rose wasn't totally Dawn-from-Buffy helpless, but was very good at it. She was an amazing Bad Wolf and I love her snark [not as much as Donna, but Rose gets second place... no wait Amy gets second, so Rose gets third]. I don't know when I'll get back to the Doctor or even Captain Jack for that matter, since school work and the podcast are going to take up so much of my time, but I'll update when I can. It makes me sad that I know who dies on Torchwood. At least I don't know how it happens or when. But still. Sigh.

...I can't think of anything else. I'm actually at work so I can't glance around my room and see what new stuff I've seen or obtained. So... until then. Cheerio.

  1. I could not find a subtitled version of Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? to save my life. Can't really afford to subscribe to Crunchyroll, either.
